Revlon's Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner

What do you think of when you hear the word liquid eyeliner?

Honestly at first I thought liquid eyeliners were a bit messy. It wasn't the eyeliners fault it was mine because I didn't know how to make a straight line without getting my eyelids all smudged up lol... But after using them over and over I kind of got the hang of it. Although, I don't wear liquid eyeliners all the time I do have a few eyeliners specifically for those days when I don't want to wear a lot of makeup but still look presentable or fun.
I have used liquid eyeliners from many brands but today I want to talk about Revlon's Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner in the colors Green Spark and Electric Blue. I got these two babies at BeautyCon NY. I have been using them here and there, on days where I am being lazy and don’t want to wear a whole lot of makeup or on days where I am going to be out in the sun for a while.

These are perfect for hot summer days and I absolutely love them, not only because I love both colors but because the brush is so thin it makes it so easy for me to draw a line without making a mess. I can make the line thin or thick or how ever I want it and it’s so easy. The formula is wet but it dries up and lasts really long and giving you a nice pop of color. They are great for a day at the park or a night out with the friends. The only down side is that, it's not waterproof and it will run down your face at the beach or if you sweat a lot on your face, so they should totally come out with some waterproof ones.
Would I re-purchase? Yes I am actually getting the other colors specially the black one since I ran out of my L'Oreal Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner.  The Revlon's Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner runs between the price ranges of $6 to $8 at CVS, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Rite-Aid or Ulta etc...

What are your favorite Liquid eye liners?

Where I Have Been & What I Have Been Up Too

Hello lovelies, hope your start of the week went well, for me I just started work today after a week of vacation and it was needed. I feel refreshed and ready to take on the world again. I kind of took a vacation from blogging too just because I wanted to do some research catch up with other blog's readings and work on my blogging anniversary update which will consists of a new design and some other things you’ll find out soon. Also, I have been working on an anniversary giveaway which will be starting soon, so stay tuned.

What else, well we celebrated grandmas 90th birthday which was really nice because all her sons and daughters were there. Some of her grandchildren and great grand kids were also there. Grandma looked really happy which is what mattered, it’s a blessing to live to be 90 years old.

 I also, spent some quality time with my adorable 8 year old nephew Jayden, my sister Mariella and my cousin Carolina with her daughter Cynthia. We went to some museums , played miniature golf, went to Central Park, and went to the movies to see Planets of The Apes ( a must see). When I wasn't with family I was home working on some illustrations that are going to be up on the blog soon.

To close the week up, I attended Chic Studios 5 year’s anniversary event yesterday and I had a lot of fun mingling with some awesome new friends like Jackie from FiveTwo Certified, Faith from Love, Roxie and many other wonderful people. I also got to meet my dear friend Donah from Sweet Jelly Bean in person. I also received a gift bag to die for, Chic Studios and sponsors were so generous when putting this gift bag together.

Overall, I had an awesome week last week and enjoyed my much needed break. So it’s back to business at Bravenezz, below is last week in pictures. Enjoy and until tomorrow with a post on some pretty awesome liquid eyeliners.

Enjoy the rest of your week!!

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara Review

Happy Thursday my friends! Today I wanted to take some time to give you my thoughts and opinion on the newly Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara.

I got this mascara for free at BeautyCon New York, back in May 2014 and after using it for over a month I can safely say that I like it. I still have my favorite mascara and although this one hasn’t topped it, I love the natural look that it gives my lashes. In June, I was going through some personal problems and I didn’t really wear too much makeup. This mascara came in very handy because I didn’t really need a dramatic look, just a little bit of a deeper color lashes and a little lift and this mascara did just that.

According to Revlon, this mascara is suppose to give you length and volume. Also, it says this “formula's lacquer film technology and intense color pigments deliver a lustrous, deep color to lashes. The lash stretch brush pulls the formula's high-shine, lengthening fibers from root to tip and beyond, giving you lashes that look gorgeously long and full.”

Does it do what it says? Yes, it gives my natural lashes a deeper color and adds length to my lashes which makes them look longer and fuller. You be the judge on the pictures below. They show my lashes without the mascara and with it. Can you see the difference? I can.

About the formula, it’s not shiny or too dry. I would say it’s in between and it hasn’t clumped up so far. It doesn’t transfer or bleed out with water not even when I cry; I did once but I won’t get into that. It comes out easy with facial wipes or soap. So overall, I did like it and it’s pretty good. It’s not my number one mascara but it has been added to my favorites. Price on this mascara runs between $5-$8 depending where you buy it and yes I would repurchase it because it’s effective and it’s inexpensive if you’re on a budget.

Thank you
