Le Metier De Beaute Eyeliner Du Jour 2.27.12

So... I have a love/ hate relationship with liquid liners. Why you may ask? Not because they are hard to apply, but because sometimes I think it looks chic and other times I think it looks overdone and like I am trying too hard.

I was a Lancôme art liner devotee for years but something happened and I fell out of love. Hey! It happens. I still think its a great product. I just suppose the bloom is off the rose... That's the saying right?

Anyway so I had moved to pencil liner and was loving it, minus the terrible staying power for me.

I went to Bergdorfs to pick up Le Métier De Beaute's fresh creme tints ( that's for another review) and some how the LMDB's liquid liner in Noir wound up in my little bag and back home with me in my apartment.

I didn't unwrap it for a few days pondering if I should return it, it is pricey at $42. I decided to keep it and THANK GOD I did.

Wow is this product rave worthy! It comes in a tiny tube, but boy does it pack a punch. This liner is ready to go right out of the box and it can make the finest finest thin thinnest line ever. I am SO impressed. On top of it, it lasts all day. I am so sold. This is my new must have eye product for sure. You can do a thick bold cat eye or the most natural line that just makes your lashes thicker without giving your secret of using liner away!

If you are in the market I highly suggest you check out the liquid liner in Noir by Le Métier De Beaute! I am going to go back and see what other colors they have.

Have you tried? Thoughts?

Arm Candy Du Jour 2.22.12

Okay I know I have been a bad blogger but please forgive me! I have been super busy but thinking of you guys.  I wanted to share the most amazing examples of accessory stacking. I love some good arm candy! These photo's made me drool. I posted a few on my twitter and instagram (follow me @DaraKaye and DaraKaye on Instagram) last week but these were too good to keep to myself!

Gold Stacking, love the unexpected turquoise thrown in. I love the pave cone bracelet, it is by Eddie Borgo and has been on my wish list forever!

Gunmetal stack in case you don't like Gold and get bored by the typical silver look. More Eddie Borgo.

And of course, the typical silver stack but opposite of typical with these gorgeous pieces. Again a lot of it is Eddie Borgo. I see his pyramids and cone bracelets. Love Love Love!

(All of these images were taken from ).

If you aren't in love with Eddie Borgo by now... I don't even know what to say. I am tempted to go on his site and order EVERYTHING.

I also found a great article on The Coveteur on a retrospective of Eddie Borgo. Check it out!
