Corallista Beauty Awards 2012 : Eye-makeup Products


Hey everyone!

In the previous segment of the Corallista Beauty Awards 2012, I covered my favorite face and cheek products. In this post, you will find my favorite eye makeup products. This is a particularly difficult one for me to compile since I love doing eye makeup looks and tutorials and picking just 1 product in a category is tough! Nevertheless, I’ve listed my favorites from 2012 in this post, hope you enjoy reading this compilation!

  1. Hey great compilation 🙂
    Ive heard some people say the loreal gel eyeliner is better than mac fluidline… What do you think? I really want to try loreal but then the thought comes to me that by adding a few hundreds i can get a fluidline , but if the quality is better i would love to try loreal do let me know 🙂 thanks 🙂

    1. Hey Poorva, its a really good question and up till now I used to think L’oreal is just as good as MAC. But recently I’ve noticed slight drying in my loreal one but the MAC ones stay good. The drying in the pot can easily be taken care of but I’d have to give a slight edge to MAC here. I’ve not tried Blacktrack though. I have Dark Diversion and Siahi – both LE shades.

  2. very made it so easy to choose product in our range.
    ankita..i’ve requested you for a step by step eye make-up tutorial of turkish actress BEREN SAAT..i’ve sent you her pic too..m still waiting.

  3. hey have u tried the avon suede collection nail paints yet , from the jan catalogue… i got 4 out of the 5 shades except nay blue ( cos i stay away from very dark shades) three of them turned out quite fine, u must try them , have a wonderful dry finish.. almost matte without lots f matter shimmer.
