Milani Liquid-Like Eye Liner Pencil Review and Photos

Over the past few years I've heard so many good things about the brand Milani, so when I was in the US recently I made it my mission to seek out some of Milani's bestsellers. First up is the Liquid Eye Liquid-Like Eye Liner Pencil, so here's my thoughts.

Have you tried any of these eye pencils, which colours are your favourites and what would you recommend I pick up next?
Price
This retails for $7.99 for 1.2g of product, which is around £5. I think this is average for a decent drugstore pencil liner, it also comes in five amazing colours to choose from too.
Packaging
This liner comes packaged with clearly to read information about the pencil and what it does. Each pencil is also coloured at the end to identify which colour is which.
Application
I picked up the pencil in black as it's a great universal, staple to colour to have in your make-up bag. Upon application this glided on so smoothly, just like butter, although it was a little slippery and difficult to apply a thin line to the lash line. This pencil is super pigmented and works brilliantly in the upper and lower waterline.
Longevity
For a drugstore pencil this had exceptional staying power, initially I applied two layers of the liner to the waterline and one layer, smudged out to the lash line and both where bulletproof from early in the morning to late at night, amazing!
Overall Thoughts
This is the best drugstore black liner pencil I have ever tried by far. It is super pigmented, glides on like a dream and is bulletproof for hours, just be careful to apply sparingly to the lash line, as a little goes a long way. I certainly think this is a steal and a must have for any make-up bag, it's just a shame they don't sell this brand here in the UK! So if you live in the US and your on the hunt for an affordable, super pigmented black liner pencil, then this is defiantly worth a try.

I award the Milani Liquid-Like Eye Liner Pencil 4.9 out of 5

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand & Foot Duo - My Holy Grails

It goes without saying hand and foot lotions are one of my holy grails and although I moisturise my hands throughout the day, the evening before I go to bed is when I tend to focus on moisturising properly, so that it can sink in well overnight. For me L'Occitane do the best hand and foot creams, especially for dry skin and this duo is perfect for the Winter time as it always keeps my hands and feet in tip top condition throughout the cold, heating filled winter times. What's your perfect hand and foot duo for the winter months?
L'Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream
This hand cream smells divine and contains almond extract, honey and 20% shea butter, which makes it a perfect choice for night time because of it's thick, buttery consistency.
L'Occitane Dry Skin Foot Cream
If your feet like mine, have been left feeling dry and tired from all that Summer sandal wearing, then this Foot Cream could be just the ticket. It contains 15% shea butter, as well as a touch of soothing lavender and this certainly does the trick at pampering my feet daily.
