Last night I went to see Mad Max: Fury Road, and it was amazing!

It took me a while (first five minutes) to get used to sped up frames but in the end I loved it. I wholeheartedly recommend it (if you like post apocalyptic movies, that is). I won't spoil anything, but the only thing I will say is that if Furiosa gets her own spin-off movie/franchise/TV-series/anything, I will go and see it, and see it again, and buy it on blu-ray.

I loved her when i first saw the trailer, and last night I wanted to recreate this black grease markings at least a bit.


As the lighting was terrible, I made myself up again this morning, and decided to pair the look with three different lip colours.




  1. Powdered with Healthy mix serum
  2. Burberry Lip Glow 25 Lavender lipgloss
  3. L'Oreal Pure Red lipstick Laetitia mixed with a leftover Burberry lipgloss

How do you like it? :)
I had a little flashback to high school, because back then I abused black eyepencil and constantly applied to my waterline.
I didn't think this black eyeshadow all over my eye will turn out good, but I'm pretty satisfied with it.


Even though I have a pretty decent make-up stash, last Summer I felt a need for a blue eyeliner.
I googled my eyes off, and the only things I could find were frosty/shimmery/glitter liquid eyeliners, and I'm a gel eyeliner kind of girl. Only blue gel eyeliners I stumbled upon were dark blue, and I wanted cobalt blue.

Luckily, there were some photos on the Internet that showed MAC makeup artists using just the kind of eyeliner I dreamed of on a model.

I waited and waited and it turned out that it will be a part of MAC Philip Treacy collection. As soon as the collection arrived at MAC Store in Zagreb, I went in and snatched my eyeliner.

At 160kn (24$; 3g/0.10oz) MAC Fluidline Royal Wink is the most expensive gel eyeliner I own, but I didn't care, because this blue is sooo pretty. 

I went home, took gazillion of photos of untouched product and tried it on my eye without any eyeshadow or base and was extremely disappointed when I saw that it sucked. My first thought was: "OMG, I paid that much money for a jar of this sheer flaking crap?! Well, but at least the colour is pretty..."

The problem with it was that it went on really sheer and when I tried to add a second layer, the brush would pull the first layer and the line would be really patchy. When I tried to rub it off, it flaked really bad and it would fell off in patches.

A few days later, I was getting ready for work and I felt like the blue eyeliner would be perfect as a finishing touch. I was so relieved once I saw that when Royal Wink is applied on top of eyeshadow base and eyeshadow, it just glides on like any other eyeliner I own, which was amazing. Next thing I need to do is to pair it with blue mascara and see if I can handle the double blue awesomeness.

I instantly fell in love with it and the only regret I have now is that I didn't get another one when it was in stock, as this is really unique gel liner.

My final verdict:
MAC Royal Wink is an amazing gel liner. It may not have the perfect formula, but if applied with the right brush it will provide a perfectly crisp matte cobalt blue winged line. I'm using a really fine nail art brush that allows me to create a perfectly thin line and gives me completely control over gel liner application.

For this post I wanted to use as many MAC products as I owned, so I chose MAC paint pot Painterly as eyeshadow base, and used Catrice Starlight expresso and Vanillaty Fair eyeshadow with L'Oreal False lash wings mascara. As always, I used Catrice Starlight expresso on my eyebrows. I also used Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum 51 as my foundation and Avon concealer for under-eye area. My current blush obsession is MAC The Perfect Cheek, and this look couldn't really go without it.

I wasn't really sure if I wanted the bright red, or deep, wine red for my lips, but I felt this was a job for MAC Diva, and Ruby Woo was left for some other time.

Here are my favourite brushes that I use for on everyday basis, and that I used for this look:

Left to right: Sigma F40 (blush), Sigma F80 (foundation), Ecotools angled brush (eyebrows), MAC 217 (eyeshadow), thin nail art brush (gel liner) and essence spooley brush (eyebrows).

The final look:

I wanted to snap a pic of me actually smiling and I felt so silly. It may seem that all of these photos were snapped effortlessly: click and it's there, but just imagine me kneeling near my bed, trying to catch the best lighting possible, while looking sideways to Ikea mirror on my bed, so I can see if the camera I'm holding in my left arm is actually focusing on my face and not my shoulder or the nightstand or something else around me. And I don't even want to start on my across the street neighbours who have the front row to crazy-lady-show (that means me as the crazy lady) who is spending half an hour with camera lens three centimetres from her eyeball (and if you check my instagram in a few hours, I will post a pic on how that actually looks like for me). 

Ah, woes of the beauty blogger... *dramaticNicisdramatic*

Of course, I'm intentionally overreacting :D 
I really like taking photos for blog, but I seriously need to invest in some kind of lighting rig, because this daylight is just not enough.

Lets get back to the topic of this post!

Do you like non-black gel eyeliners? Or do you prefer liquid ones?
