The year is coming to a close, and I find myself already thinking about my beauty goals for 2017. For 2016, I was all about highlighting/contouring and picking up bronzer for the first time (review later!), but I want to ring in the new year with a renewed dedication to eyes. Admittedly, I have been sticking to bold lips to make a quick job of it, but I want to put more time towards learning new ways to define eyes. And so I set about to start practicing with the help of Eye of Horus Easy on the Eyes Glamourbox (PHP 1,290) and the new Eye of Horus Bio Lash Lift Mascara (PHP 1,150).
Let’s start with the metallic shimmer gorgeousness of the Isis Sun Goddess Shadow Palette (PHP 1,350; USD 26.52). This 3-pan palette contains Enigma Mist (light silvery peach), Chalice Bronze (warm medium bronze), and Sacred Husk (warm medium bronze). The curation of shades is such a winner, because it’s easy to see how they would be universally versatile across multiple skintones. The shadows are easy to blend together and don’t have much fallout, but pigmentation isn’t so intense and longevity is about 3 hours before completely creasing. However, eye primer does improve those two aspects immensely.
Liquid Define Babylon Brown (PHP 990; USD 22.10) is a matte coffee brown liquid liner with a precision application, pointed felt tip. I do feel that stark black liner is still a little severe for thick lines, unless you were going for illusion lashes or a winged tip, so I’m glad to see that there are brown options out there. The liner doesn’t register as opaque, but coverage is buildable by waiting for the first layer to dry before application. It didn’t smudge, though the formula is highly washable. So you should be fine, as long as you do not rub your eyes or get it wet.
The Goddess Pencil in Nubian Brown (PHP 990; USD 21.91), along with the other Eye of Horus eye pencils, is somewhat soft and easy to smudge for a smokey look and a long-wear formula. The shade I have is a matte chocolate brown. You can check out my review on another shade of Goddess Pencil HERE.
Lastly, Eye of Horus has just come out with the Bio Lash Lift Mascara (introductory price of PHP 1,150 ; USD 27.75). If you’re in the market for a vegan mascara, then look no further. This is 100% vegan and 98% organic. It also contains oarweed extract (laminaria digitata) that promotes lengthening and regeneration of hair. The wand is curved with short plastic bristles, and I found it easy to learn my way around applying mascara with it. The effect is more lengthening with a little bit of volumizing but, overall, a very natural level of definition. I noticed that it did smudge on me after a few hours, although I do have an eye shape that does tend to bring out the smudge tendencies of most mascaras. But because of that, I do recommend the use of a curler to help the formula along.
