Oh Dior, How I Love Thee

I feel particularly cute today, I think it's the endorphins kicking in. I've been back to the gym (for three weeks now) after a l-o-o-o-n-g hiatus and I'm on a definite high. My thighs are killing me and my significant other and I are on the rocks, but I still feel great!

Part of what's making me feel so good (apart from the super-cute vest I'm rocking and my hair making the most perfect natural waves today) is my Dior Pencil Eyeliner. Remember that awful Dior event at Bloomingdale's I went to a couple of months ago? I got it then and I've used it here and there but I've ignored it for the most part (like I do with all my products after a couple of weeks). I whipped it back out and have been using it for a couple of days now and I am absolutely in love! I have a love/hate relationship with pencil liners in general, simply because no matter what, they always smudge on me. I've tried everything from MAC Technikohl to Urban Decay 24/7 Pencils, but NOTHING has worked--until now. I think I keep trying out pencil liners even though I feel more comfortable with the way liquid looks because pencil is just such a no-brainer. But, I've been test-driving the Dior pencil vigorously to see how long it could withstand my oil lids and it passed!

The Dior Pencils come in a range of basic colors but precious green looks the best on me. I love the dark, plum-purple shade but it tends to disappear into my skin because of my dark circles (I hate you!). This pencil glides on smoothly and is pretty much budge-proof and it also comes with a sponge-tip on the other end which is perfect for creating a quick smoky eye.

Bottom line: the Precious Green Dior Pencil has lasted all day on me, so I'm a fan. The $25 price tag is hefty, but it's well worth it!

I'm definitely going to have to try this. I can't get any liner to stay on my waterline for longer than an hour. This is a perfect way to introduce myself to Dior cosmetics. I know I know, I'm a makeup junkie but I've never even tried anything Dior (keep that a
