Grey Lady – The best and worst of black, white and silver makeup

It’s been ages since I did a post themed around colour but I do love picking a theme and then finding products around it so I thought I’d give it a go. Today I’m rounding up some beauty products that are black, white and silver and thought it would be fun to talk about which ones are great and which ones should be avoided.
Barry M Nail Art Pen in White
I bought this nail art pen a long time ago and with it being my first nail art pen I thought it was good but since the I’ve changed my mind. Although this produces a lot of nail polish/fluid it has a texture similar to Tippex also it dispenses too much product which makes it difficult to use.

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Kajal Liner in Black
I don’t really rate this, Estee Lauder products are what I would consider high end but this doesn’t seem to do much it fades quickly and smudges (although it doesn’t run terribly which is a plus.) I personally think that there is better out there for cheaper.

Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
I do really like this, it’s very pigmented and it’s so handy in tutorials but my major bug bear is that it doesn’t fit any of my sharpeners! As a result I’m going to need to invest in a sharpener big enough to sharpen this bad boy which is a pain (any suggestions btw?)

Rimmel London Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow in Smokey Noir
This is such an underrated product and yet it’s my go to for a smokey eye, the casing has broken so it has seen better days but I had a serious love affair with this when I first got it. The shadows are decently pigmented and blend together surprisingly well for a high street product.

Seventeen Eye Crayon
A double ended eye crayon with a pearly white and a deep charcoal grey. This came in a set but sadly they’re not great. These are way too slippery, they crease and they don’t stay put. Such a shame because the colours are gorgeous!

Seventeen Nail Art Pen in White
This is a duo product as a thin tippped polish and a nail art pen too. This can be difficult to use as you have to squeeze whilst using it but I will admit the micro nib means that you can get that precision, I do use this and I like it.

Seventeen Nail Polish in Moonstruck
Another product that came in a set and I really like this! Metallic and chrome polishes can be hard to get right but this one doesn’t streak at all and goes opaque in one coat, definitely a winner in my book.

Soap and Glory Supercat Liner
Sadly this will inevitable dry up but I do like this felt tip liner and it is the best felt liner that I have tried. It’s quite easy to work with for eyeliner noobs such as myself. I would recommend going over it with a liquid liner though to increase the longevity of your eyeliner.

Technic Nail Polish in Stardust
I don’t use glitter polishes for the most part but this is a worthy addition to my collection. It’s a clear polish with silver glitter, an absolute nightmare to get off but it’s handy to have it for nail art plus it’s cheap and does the job!

That concludes this post, if you enjoyed it please hit the like button and let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products, what are your go to black, white and silver products?

Thanks for reading.
