L’Oréal Infallible Super Slim eyeliner is here at L'Oreal Paris USA. (note, Christine uses Gray on lower lid and Black on upper, both in the thinnest possible line, or gray on both lids for casual wear. In order, apply primer to face first (Cover Girl TruBlend Mattifying) and primer to upper lids (Smashbox above), then apply lower lid liner, next foundation on entire face, then translucent powder to face and upper lids, then upper lid liner and continue with rest of makeup application).
Maybelline Master Chrome Jelly highlighter is here at Maybelline. (note, Master Chrome Metallic is a different product; while I have not tried it, the shine appears less finely milled)
