mirenesse boutique M exclusive collection

It’s Australia Day today in…Australia!  Being a Scottish expat, I don’t really know what it’s all about but I know that the Mr has a day off so we’ll be spending it together – YAY!  Today’s post is kinda Aussie-ish because I’ll be talking about an Aussie brand and the product is dark blue (like it is in the Aussie flag).  Totally winging this!  LOL.  Anyway…

Mirenesse is an Australian cosmetic brand which sponsored a number of goodies from their Boutique M Exclusive Collection at ABBW last year.  I cannot believe I have failed to give them even a wee mention on this blog!  Shame on me!!!  One of the products I received was Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eyeliner in Sapphire Blue.

Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eyeliner in Sapphire Blue is unlike all the other felt tip eyeliners I have used (Rimmel, FOA, Heroine Make).

A)  It’s not black.
B)  It’s actually a gel eyeliner and not a liquid eyeliner.  But I wouldn’t be able to differentiate between them because it just felt like a felt tip eyeliner.

Apparently, it can be used to tightline eyes.  (Check out Paris B’s tutorial on how to do this)  Personally, I have not tried doing this myself with the Mirenesse Tight Liner – mainly because I don’t tend to tightline as my eyes are rather sensitive and the last time I did it, I gave me a pink eye infection.  Not good!  And also, tightlining with sapphire blue…??  Maybe if I was Lady Gaga…

I just use Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eyeliner in Sapphire Blue the boring old school way – i.e. line upper lash line – but because it is blue, I don’t use it that often…perhaps once in a blue (pun alert) moon!

The colour is intense and it creates lovely thick lines.  I actually prefer a thicker tip than too thin (like Heroine Make which is 0.5mm) because it is easier to control.  Think of it as walking in high heels.  It is easier to walk in high heels like platforms rather than stilettos.  Probably didn’t explain that too well, but I hope you know what I mean.

Anyway, Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eyeliners come in a variety of colours so if you’re keen, hop on over to their website and check them out yourself!  I actually saw this product pop up in a beauty box in a number of blogs so I’m kinda glad I am reviewing this now!  😛

Happy Australia Day to all my Australian readers!  And for my non-Aussie readers, happy Thursday!  Only one more day till the weekend!!!

    The color certainly looks really nice. Still wearable every day but with a twist, you know?

    I don’t know how to tightline, scared to try but I’m always lining my waterline yet for some reason I get squeamish when I watch videos of people lining their waterline or tightlining, no idea why but it grosses me out for some reason!

      @Megan, I can totally understand the squeamish-ness of tightlining – it’s so near the eyeball and the red delicate part of eyelids… At the same time, tighlining looks amazing on some girls & I wish my eyes would accept tightlining…but they can’t. Sucks!

    I just got this in my Glossybox, I didn’t even realise that I already had the black version from ABBW! Terrible of me. I’ve already had a play with the blue, I quite like blue liner on top as I do bright eyes frequently, and this is a nice navy type which makes it more wearable all round I think. Happy Australia Day, wee Scottish lass ;P xxx

    specifically for tightlining. interesting! it’s dark blue so you should look fine with it. something different from the boring black.

      @coco, Will have to do FOTD with it and you can see whether it suits me or not 😉

    I received this liner in a beauty box but when I apply it, it doesn’t go on smoothly and such… based on the pics you’ve posted, looks like mine’s already have dried up! So disappointing 🙁 Looks like a fun product though

      @Karen, Oh no! That really sucks! No-one wants a dried up product. Have you complained about it?

        @Ling, I sent them an email and they replied about a replacement, phew! 🙂 The gel liner was definitely the most exciting part of the box which kind of sucks but hopefully the replacement will be good!

          @Karen, Yay, good thing they are willing to replace it. You’ll have fun playing with it 🙂

            @Ling, Haha yeah I’m looking forward to it! 😀 Even if Glossybox sucks at delivery so far, at least they’re responsive to emails and complaints.
