Hawaii Vacation Beauty Products, Part 2


LOL to this pic of my head and this palm tree!

I was taking a sunset walk and checking to see if the eyeliner that I had applied earlier in the day — the Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner by Rare Beauty — was still on.

It’s by far one of the best on-the-whim beauty buys I’ve made in a long time! It’s a liquid eyeliner with a long, flexible tip that’s very fine, so it’s easy to draw thin, precise lines — purr-fect for the tiny little kitten flicks I’ve been into lately.

I picked it up on a whim at Sephora before leaving the Bay Area, and it’s stayed on through the humidity, drizzle and, ahem, sweating like a beast glistening on a sunset walk. LOL!

Added bonus, the pigment is rich and dark, so I can scribble a quick line and flick and then be on my merry way.

I applied it earlier in the day and wore it with a cute new hat I bought from Splash Hawaii at the Kahala Mall.

Then I wore it all day, and it was still on after a long and sweaty 45-minute sunset walk.

See the tiny lil’ flick and the thin line on my upper lash line?

I love, love, love it. If you’re looking for a liquid liner that’s easy to use and stays on all day, grab it!

It’s been a while since I’ve seen an Hawaiian sunset (at least a few years), and yesterday evening Oahu reminded me just how stunning it is when the sun dips behind the horizon.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    When I was in Maui, I saw the GREEN FLASH at sunset. Have you had that experience? It’s amazing!

    Your pictures are simply lovely! I went to HI in 2010 or 2011 and it was one big dream come true. Hope Connor Claire enjoyed seeing her family!

    Sunsets are soothing for some reason. I was on the phone with one of my friends in Los Angeles when we were on the Big Island, and I told her I was going to call her back because I wanted to watch the sunset. She kinda said, “You can see a sunset anywhere.” So I FaceTimed her outside from the porch of the house and she said, “Ohhh!!!” I think she got the idea lol. I didn’t mind seeing that view every single day!
    What part of the island are you staying if you don’t mind me asking? The water seems really calm and peaceful there. We got tossed around in the waves so much, my son preferred the pool after a few days!

    Beautiful pictures! What hotel do you stay at when you visit? Kinda reminds me of Hilton Hawaiian Village. I’m from Hawaii, but it would be a nice option to give my parent’s house a break, especially with kids! Enjoy your vacay!

    Those photos are really postcard perfect! The kind of postcard you send to make others jealous, lol.
    Hope you are having the most wonderful, relaxing and amazing vacation with the family.
