Jill Stuart Lasting Gel Eyeliner 03 Cosmic Navy Review

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to be reviewing the Jill Stuart Lasting Gel Eyeliner in 03 Cosmic Navy. I don't really use gel eyeliners, I prefer liquid but I find that gel eyeliners work best if you want to do smokey eye looks.

I got this in Cosmic Navy because I already have a black eyeliner (MAC Fluidline Blacktrack). I wanted something different and the colour looks really nice!

I recommend you applying with a thin eyeliner brush. I have the Jill Stuart eyeliner brush but I find that it doesn't work well at all. I prefer using the MAC angled eyeliner brush since it gives you very precise lines.

Final Look:

Final Verdict
Pros:
- Eyeliner is very creamy and glides on very easily
- Very pigmented, colour comes on really well

Cons:
- A bit expensive and hard to get your hands on
- Smudges a bit easily but if you want to go for a smokey eye look it is easy to smudge it out

01/04/15 First Day in Seoul

Hi everyone!

It's been so long since I last blogged. I kind of stopped blogging because life just got really busy and I just wanted to focus more on Youtube. However I have sooo much to blog about since I just came back from Korea/Japan so hopefully there will be more regular blog posts from now on!

I left Perth airport. I pretty much packed empty, I planned to buy everything in Korea and Japan

Was hungry so I decided to get something quick to eat. Didn't have much time so I bought some quick takeaway.

I took the bus to my hotel... however I missed my bus stop because the other tourists were being so loud on the bus. I had all my luggage with me so I decided to just take a taxi to the hotel since it was somewhere close by. So yes, the ride was 5 minutes... I saw on the meter it was 4300won which is approximately $5. I gave the driver 5000won and was going to tip him as well, but then he turned off the meter and told me it was 43000won. I was so confused since I only exchanged around $100 (I was planning on using my card in Korea). When the taxi driver realized I was thinking why it was so expensive, he zoomed off with my money. Real crappy start to my trip. I was so angry because I didn't really know the conversion of Korean won (first time in Korea, and I didn't have time to read up about it before my trip cos a lot of things happened). I should've taken a photo of the taxi... but oh well, I heard it has happened to a lot of people so beware of taxi scams in Korea.

Anyway, I got to the hotel in the end in one piece, and then settled down a bit before heading out. The first day was to do some sightseeing so first stop was Changdeokgung (창덕궁).

To enter it was like $3? There wasn't really much to do in there, it's huge and you can just walk around and enjoy the nice sights
