Hey everyone! Sorry for the little blog break. February is shaping up to be an especially busy month in terms of speaking engagements and events outside of work. But I'm getting back to blogging! This one happens to be a guest blog from my mom, Jackie! She's in her 60's, and I get lots of requests for videos with her, and info on what kinds of products she likes. We're planning some different videos for the next time we get together, but meanwhile, she's providing me with some product reviews! This one was a product I recommended to her because she has some specific needs where her eyeliner is concerned. I think it's nice to share reviews from different perspectives, so take it away, Mom!
Cover Girl Line Blast 24 hr. - A Guest Review by Emily's Mom, Jackie
"Emily recently informed me of one product that solved two problems for me. Being Emily's Mom has its advantages!
Aging brings about problems that I inform Emily about. She always seems to come up with an answer. In the process, she is learning about aging skin and can, therefore, help another age group of women. The item she suggested is "Cover Girl LineBlast 24 hour." It is a felt tip eyeliner with a very delicate point that flows on smoothly with one stroke. I chose "Eternal Brown 805" as I have lighter hair and wanted something less harsh than black.
My previous liners were Almay Liquid, which would practically blot off, just under my brow bone, if I "teared up." This was due to my skin sagging a bit and coming into contact with the liner. I then tried Maybelline UltraLiner in a waterproof formula. This product was somewhat thicker and the applicator brush was less precise, making it harder to apply. LineBlast works well for me because I can wear it all day and don't have to worry about it transferring or smudging onto other parts of my eye.
The second problem she addressed with the "lineblast 24 hour" was that in applying it to the lash line, the point was so small that it did not brush across the lashes and add product where you did not want it. This makes the application of mascara easier, as there is no residue of eyeliner on the lash."
Thanks for the review, Mom! She's enjoying this liner, and so am I. I have it in black and love the staying power, and how it dries matte. Something to keep in mind- store the liner with the tip facing down (in a cup or something) so the liquid will flow to the tip and extend your use of the product. To see this liner in action, check out my College Girl Beauty: Night Out tutorial or my Valentine's Day Chocolate Covered Cherry look. It costs around $6 at the drugstore.
Got a question for mom?

- I just asked Cupcake if there was anything she wanted to add, and she turned her face in and covered it with her paw, like cats do. Too cute.
