Since picking up these Daniel Sandler Velvet Waterproof Eyeliners online at ASOS.com (currently the only Australian distributers of Daniel Sandler as far as I’m aware), these have become my go-to eyeliners. When there was another 25% off sale, I picked up backups of the Brown Velvet and Black Velvet, because I hated the thought of running out and having to wait two weeks for a replacement to arrive. #beautybloggerproblems
The main things I love about these pencils are the great pigmentation; the fact that once they set on the eyes they are VERY fade resistant and water resistant; and the very practical wind up packaging (great for travel because you don’t need to bring a sharpener or a brush).
Black Velvet is a matte deep black- one of the blackest pencil liners I have seen and the intensity of the black hardly shifts through an entire day of wear. The only problem I should point out with Black Velvet is that it is very soft- so soft that on a hot day you will need to cool it down in the fridge for a few minutes to get a clean line (alternatively you could run an eyeliner brush around the edges to get a crisp line). Fade/water resistance is as good as the others, surprisingly.
Brown Velvet is a matte deep neutral brown- if you could put Bobbi Brown Gel liner in Espresso Ink in a wind up pencil, you would end up with this. The texture of this is perfection- applies silkily on the eye without tugging, yet has enough firmness so that you can easily get a clean, precise line when you want to. No refrigeration required!
Grey Velvet is a matte steel grey which leans blue. I purchased this purely because of the awesome grey eyeliner look that Pat McGrath created for Stella McCartney S/S 2014 – unfortunately the shade of Grey Velvet leans too cool and bluish for me to pull off [edit: I’ve changed my mind. I can pull it off after all, just not at the bottom lashline]. A pale, cool toned person would look fab with this. Formulation is the same as for Brown Velvet.
Full price for the Daniel Sandler Velvet Eyeliners – $18.35 AUD at ASOS and £9.25 from www.danielsandler.comPosted by myfunnyvalentine on Feb 23rd, 2014 in Reviews, Swatches | 94181 commentDaniel+Sandler+Waterproof+Eyeliner%3A+Black+Velvet%2C+Brown+Velvet%2C+Grey+Velvet2014-02-23+05%3A48%3A35myfunnyvalentinehttp%3A%2F%2Fmyfunnyvalentineblog.com%2F%3Fp%3D9418
I still can’t seem to get Dolce and Gabbana S/S 2013 out of my head. I adore Pat McGrath’s Sicilian summer inspired makeup, and often wear some variation of that glowy cats eye. This is one that I wore to work- a very neutral monochromatic look that I’m fond of when I want to look polished, but don’t want to think too hard.
– Matte white shade from the Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Quad on the mobile lid
– Matte light brown shade in crease and underneath bottom lashline

– Maybelline Color Tattoo Barely Branded in the inner corner
– Daniel Sander Brown Velvet Eyeliner on upper lashline and smudged into outer 1/3rd of bottom lashline.

I have loved every single Burberry Lip Velvet that I’ve ever owned, and my newest acquisition- Pink Azalea– is no exception. I love the romantic, period film quality to this shade in the matte finish.
MAC Club eyeshadow is an unlikely pairing with Pink Azalea for a day time work face, but I think it works well. Hope you like it!

If you haven’t already figured this out from my instagram feed- I ADORE Daniel Sandler products, especially his Watercolour blushes. They have a gorgeous finish and are one of the most long lasting blush formulas I have tried – even better than my MUFE HD blushes. Illamasqua Velvet blushes from their Sacred Hour collection have similar lasting power. Also- you can mix the Watercolour blushes to create your own custom cheek shade!
I’ve reviewed the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Cherub in a previous post.

This is a makeup look that I photographed almost a month ago when I was working in Canberra. I’m very behind with my posts!
MAC Patina eyeshadow is a gorgeous light brown with a neutral golden sheen. I haven’t worn it often in the past because it’s quite sheer and doesn’t last very long on my eyes- but recently I discovered that my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze is a wonderful base for these type of shades. With the Color Tattoo, the shade becomes opaque and Patina lasts all day.
