Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

On a recently mentioned trip to Sephora in San Francisco, I traded in a long time favorite eyeliner for a new one. I wasn’t sure if it could outdo my beloved Trish McEvoy, but it just plain blew it out of the water. I am a Kat Von D Tattoo Liner devotee from here on!

This waterproof liquid liner comes in pen form with a well-designed brush for great ease of application. It is super precise and fine – a reason I love it as I prefer a very tight and thin line. The ink is super pigmented and has not dried out one bit since I purchased three weeks ago. I have been wearing Trooper which is a deep, true black. Most impressive is the formula’s ability to last all day long without cracking, fading or running.

The salesperson who recommended it to me had a dramatic cat eye that looked fabulous so I can see how with more pressure this could make for a beautiful, thicker line. I like a very subtle defining line and can achieve this by laying the tip right by the lash line from the inner to outer corner.

And as a cruelty-free advocate, I love that Tattoo Liner is completely free of animal-derived ingredients and is not tested on animals. Available at Sephora.

Autumn Style on Belle Belle Beauty

I am on the road quite a bit again this week, but I really do hope to get back to regular posting when I am home more soon. But for now, I thought I would do a little link sharing with some news from around the web:

Most importantly, Shopbop is having a surprise sale through tomorrow. Don’t miss it!

This woodsy candle looks perfect for late fall and the start of winter.

I wear buns a lot so naturally I loved these idea.

Some finds from my wish list:

Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation

Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation on Belle Belle Beauty

I went on quite the shopping spree at Sephora in San Francisco last week. While I have a Sephora at home, there is something about locations in big cities that offers so many unknowns. Visiting can be a really eye opening experience, discovering “new to me” brands and products. But this visit actually led me to an old favorite. And I am not sure I will ever be without a bottle on my vanity like I have for the past couple of years.

It is odd because when people ask my favorite foundations, I often mention Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation but it hasn’t maintained a presence in my routine. I scoped up a bottle (5.5 was a great match for me), and have worn it every day since.

This lightweight foundation has a translucent finish, but still with polish. The texture is more like a tinted moisturizer. The micro-fit technology leads to a rather thin consistancy that wears weightlessly. But the pigments provide more foundation-like coverage. Just that peek of natural glow allows for a more natural look. Apparently I am not alone: “Quite simply, the best foundation there is.”—Linda Cantello, International Makeup Artist.

Available at Sephora.

Fall Maxi on Belle Belle Beauty

Happy Hump Day! Some finds from around the web:

Considering no makeup?

I think I hit this social realization circa 2013.

I still get compliments on these sunglasses and feel like they will transition well to winter.

This kitchen overhaul is stunning.

Got my eye on this fragrance discovery set for a more masculine winter scent.
