Meg here! So there are lots of perks of running megsmakeup.com! Hearing all of your humor and brilliance is completely the best reason. Hands down! After that there’s a whole other list of reasons. One of them is finding out about new lines. The company Skinn was totally new to me until they sent some samples of their Wet Lips Super Shine Gloss As you can see from the reviews, everyone loved them.
I was so excited when I went to the mail and saw that Skinn had sent us their Luxe Waterproof Eyeliner! I looked over the materials and read how it had shea butter and peptides, ingrediants to make for a smooth application and not crease into dry skinn
I went with the deep black and decided this was a great In My Purse Cosmetic case item! No sharpener needed. I usually hate those twist up tubes-I inadvertantly always end up breaking them and the product is wasted! This is a much higher quality twist up then some of my drugstore deal trys and the price is so reasonable! $9.50 for a top quality liner! YAY!
I used it last night and this morning (Bad Meg!! Didn’t wash her face) It’s still in place. It also doesn’t pull, just glides on really smoothly.
After working for 20 years at big cosmetic companies, Skinn’s founder, Dmitri James was really frustrated. This, in his own words, is pretty interesting…
When I launched Skinn in 2002 the question most asked was “How are you going to do it Dimitri? How are you going to give us more products, better products, and keep them at a comparable price?” The answer was really quite simple. After working at the highest levels of the big cosmetics houses, I learned that the money they spend does not go into the product. In fact, it seems to go everywhere but the product: ad campaigns, department store counter space, Park Avenue offices, and, most of all, packaging. Believe it or not, most companies spend more money on the container and fancy boxes than on the product that’s inside. I used to sit in meetings in those Park Avenue offices to talk about how to improve the company’s products. Those meetings always seem to end the same: “Let’s change the packaging.” Upgrading the product was always deemed too costly as it would require re-educating the consumer about what constitutes a quality product. In essence the secret would be out that water does not have to be the first ingredient in every product.
I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for a pretty package. I’m not Emperor’s New Clothes though. No matter how cool the tube-if it doesn’t work, it’s out!
Ladies, what did you think of Skinn Luxe Waterproof Eyeliner?
