Rawrgirls Review - AKA Liquid Eyeliner!

I'm obsessed with liquid eyeliners lately after recently perfecting my flick technique, and I love this Grey Blue (£7) colour from new brand A.K.A Cosmetics.

The colour is a very pretty, well, grey blue (surprise surprise!) and as well as by itself, I also tend use it to add a flash of colour over an already applied black baseline, especially when I'm wearing false lashes as I am here (Eylure Hed Kandi Twisted Disco) to conceal any join lines :)

The consistency is really good, generally needing only 2 coats to get a firm block colour, and the brush is fine whilst managing a good sized line first time around and is easy to wield. As for durability, it pretty much lasts all day, with only a quick re-application of the outer flick required. I also like how it doesn't bleed into the corner of my eye if I attempt to line my upper lid all the way (my E.L.F liquid liner literally fills my tear duct with colour and scares the hell out of me for about 5 minutes until I've baby wiped it all out and ruined my make up!).

Overall, fine holiday fun and when my 9200 black liners have run out I totally plan to get this in black (I need to learn to kerb my addiction first) ;)

NAILED IT! Disco Barbie With AKA and Mavala!

This is my Disco Barbie look, using A.K.A Cosmetics Candy Floss and Mavala Candy Floss (!) and Pure Diamond.

Everyone knows I adore Mavala, they are my go to brand for everything nails, but A.K.A are a new brand so obvs I had to try their polish! A.K.A's Candy Floss is a true Barbie pink, totally flat with no shimmer so it was the ideal base for my Mavala disco tips to sit on. A.K.A polish has a good consistency for me, I like them thick but pliable, nothing worse than a polish that dries as soon as it hits the air in my opinion. This base took just 2 coats for a no streak finish, happy days.

I then tipped them in Mavala's Candy Floss to give the glitter a lighter base to pop off, then finished with about 3 coats of my fave Mavala Pure Diamond, et voila! You like? They fancy ;)
