Flip to the liquid liner for bold intensity or detailed definition that glides on with ease - perfect for getting a quick classic cat eye! I reviewed Bora Bora (swatch 1 above) and Tasmania (swatch 2 above).
How to use it: Apply pencil or liquid liner in short, quick strokes along the lash line, starting at the inner corner and working your way outward.

How to use it: Dab the cheek stain blush color directly to the cheek and blend upward and outward using the blending brush applicator.
