Seriously, the Glitter is Divine...TONY MOLY Crystal Tear Glitter Eyeliner [REVIEW]

Confession time: I buy way too many things from Pretty&Cute.  Mainly, you'll see me buying masks, and Dolly Wink eyelashes, but a month ago I splurged on something different--the TONY MOLY Crystal Tear Glitter Eyeliner ($6.00 at

It promises to "add some sparkle and glamour" to your daily look, but I think this works as a great highlighter for your aegyo sal--the soft pockets of fat below your eyes that pop out when you smile.

My aegyo sal actually isn't showing in these pictures, but hey!  Glitter eyeliner.

So, When I Put This On, Boom

So here's the thing: Although the TONY MOLY eyeliner only carries 4.5mL of product, a little goes a long way--the glitter is fine, and spreads out easily, making it the perfect accent for highlighting the inner corners of your eyes.

The fine tip point of the applicator also makes it easy to work into even the tiniest of corners, or under some unruly eyelashes...

Glitter so intense you could pass for a Twilight vampire...

In the bottle, it looks like an opaque formula with glitter, but on the skin doesn't quite have that opaque finish--which is actually a good thing.  Its semi-sheer formula means it's easier to blend and work with, and works best as a highlighter.

Better yet?  It's buildable.

Before: No glitter eyeliner. After: Ta-dah!  TONY MOLY Crystal Tear Glitter Eyeliner dotted under my eyes.

But the Downside

Downsides?  Well, there are some--for instance, if you spread it out too much, it can get crusty and lift up from your skin (attractive, I know).  Also, it doesn't have quite the lasting power of an Urban Decay liquid liner, for instance; I get several hours of wear, but after that it flakes off; doesn't fade off gradually.

Well, not everything is perfect, I guess.  Except for cinnabuns.

Still, you'd be hard pressed to find any glitter eyeliner that's as good for the aegyo sal as the TONY MOLY Crystal Tear Glitter Eyeliner, especially for $6.00.

Also, I Was Just in the Apocalypse

Several days ago the craziest (and I do not exaggerate) storm crashed through this little town in Minnesota.  Not tornado-crazy, but enough to rattle the trees for a good 30 minutes.  Hail came down like knives, and although my vehicles escaped scratch-free, some trees down in the Twin Cities Metro came crashing down.

But what frightened me the most was the glow of the sky right after it occurred.

Does this sort of remind you of TANG?  Do y'all remember that?

This isn't sunset orange; it's nuclear bomb orange, so bright it was hurting my eyes.  Luckily today was a pretty (and somewhat cool) day.
