Gwen Stefani was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to promote her makeup line GXVE Beauty (pronounced “give”). I really want to try the gel liner. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’ve been on a year-long search for brown liquid waterproof eyeliner because MAC discontinued their Liquid Last product in brown. Liquid Last, in my experience, and I have really oily eyelids, is the best on the market, it doesn’t f-cking move. Every other liner I have ever tried – and I think I’ve tried almost all of them – hasn’t made it three hours without leaking and smudging. But for whatever reason, MAC decided to only offer Liquid Last in black and stopped producing the other colours….WHY!? 


Anyway, I haven’t been able to find a brown replacement but I am super interested in Gwen’s, a pencil that goes on like a liquid and supposedly lasts 24 hours. I don’t believe it, yet, but I’m willing to give it a shot. Especially in this cobalt blue. 

That looks good, right? Will it hold up to my oily eye test though? This will be the challenge. 

Anyway, blue was the colour of Gwen’s boots last night on Kimmel, paired with a classic Gwen Stefani print – black and white checkers, like Vans. This look is excellent – the bomber, the matching sport shorts, a bodysuit underneath, and you’ll note, if you go in tight, even her bra is the same print. Now I’m on the hunt for a check-print bralette. Five minutes later, just found one. Guess who makes it? Vans, of course!
