Favorite Liquid Liner- Urban Decay @24/7 Liquid Liner in Perversion

So for the longest time my favorite liquid liner was Revlon color stay which is a felt tip. Nothing could sway opinion, but then I was watching some beauty gurus use this new(ish) liquid liner from UD that looked so nice and shiny. Revlon's liquid liner is more of a matte finish. Anyways, I bit the bullet and payed the $19, which in my opinion is a ghastly amount for a liquid liner but I digress.

As you can see it is a brush tip which I was unsure about but it's not that bad. Not to toot my own horn or anything but I'm pretty good at lining my eyes with liquid. The brush is flexible but still stiff enough so you have some control.

The only thing I don't like about this liner is that when I blink my eyes right after applying to often transfers to the top of my lids. I try to remind myself to give it a few seconds to dry before blinking.

The formula is very wet and a nice dark black. Overall this is a favorite of mine and I've been using it for awhile.

MUFE has a really similar version that is more expensive, let me know if it's worth the money :)

Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Eyeshadow in Purple Reign

Finally a drug store eyeshadow to write home about! I am so impressed with this new eyeshadows from Rimmel and you'll see why!

This is what I based my eyeshadow look on:

The colors are shimmery as heck but I like shimmer (if you didn't already know). All of the shadows in this palette are nice and pigmented. The triangles in this quad are hard to reach if you don't have a tiny brush. Those of you that like using the sponge applicators will find them useful because they have a pointed tip.

They are $5.69 at ULTA.

Stila Love At First Blush Set Review

After being disappointed in the new Physicians Formula blush I decided to give this adorable blush a shot.

Can we just talk about how cute it is!!!

The pictures kind of wash out the pigmentation but trust me when I tell you that this blush is very nice. The finish is a little shimmery but I actually like that. I really recommend this blush and by itself it's only $14!

I was hesitant to get these lip glazes because I had heard they are sticky and I can't stand sticky lip products. I tried it on at Sephora and it was a sticky I could tolerate and the colors were just so gorgeous. These are actually deluxe size lip glazes instead of full size but it has a nice amount.

Overall, at $20 for an awesome blush and two great lip glosses this is a steal! It says $25 on the sticker on box but it's actually $20, guess they miss labeled. Also, online it says you can only get this set online but I picked it up at Sephora inside JCP.

Physicians Formula Organic Wear Lash Boosting Mascara

I'm not one for spoilers but the jist here is that I loved the mascara before I realized later in the day that it had melted off of my lashes and onto my under eye area.


Let's talk about the packaging. The mascara itself is rather large, as well as the applicator. It doesn't bother me so much but it's worth noting. The applicator reminds me of Cover Girl Lash Blast. It is a plastic applicator with sort spikes bristles.



I don't know if you can tell but the mascara does a really good job of curling the lashes. The mascara wand also does a good job of coating each lash without clumping. The formula is wet just so you know. It's a good everyday mascara, but not a dramatic look mascara. I actually was really happy with it until I checked myself in the mirror after a long day at school and time spent under the Florida sun. It looked like I was crying...yup that was fun.

I don't usually buy non-waterproof mascara but I guess in this case I wasn't paying attention. I haven't used it long enough to asses the lash boosting aspect.

The bottom line is if this comes in a water proof formula I would definitely purchase it again but as of right now it's scheduled to be returned.

Zoya Nail Polish in Trixie and Charisma Review

Zoya has these random deals all year round, this one was get two nail polishes for free and just pay for shipping. I actually ordered these nail polishes the 18th and they just came today. I really love Zoya and they are so good to their fans with these deals. Friend them on facebook or twitter for future steals.

Here's the ones I got:

Charisma is a neon color so it dries matte, I put a top coat on it for the swatch. I did three coats but two is fine. It's a fun color and would be great for your toes in the summer.

Trixie looks like liquid silver, not for everyone but I like out there colors. Two coats is opaque enough.

Let me know if you picked up any nail polishes during the sale :)

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pomegranate Punch and Tough as Taupe

Everyone seems to be getting these lately in the beauty community so I jumped on the bandwagon and picked up two of them.

Now many people have compared them to MAC paint pots. I don't think it's a bad comparison however there are many differences between the two. The packaging is very similar as they are both in a glass pot. I believe that the Maybelline one has a longer staying power as well as better pigmentation. Also, MAC paint pots come in more neutral colors that are sheerer.

Anyways, the pigmentation is great and these can work well without a primer especially if you have dryer lids. The variety of colors is exceptional, there is even a bright orange!

Overall this is a great drugstore buy and is pretty cheap at about $7.

Smudge Crayon Waterproof Eye Primer + Shadow + Liner in Rose Review

Stila is coming out with a lot of new products lately, there's even a B.B. cream in stores already. I believe Stila wanted to make like a Jumbo version of their smudge stick liners and this is what they came up with. *Note this particular color does not seem to be on the Sephora website but it is in Ulta.

So you can see how big it is compared to a UD eyeliner.

Stila claims:
A three-in-one gel-based eye primer, shadow, and liner that glides on with ease and stays in place until you say when.

I think that this product compares better to a MAC shade stick than anything else. The product isn't hard but it isn't necessarily soft either. It's a good idea to warm up the product with your fingers or on the back of your hand first or it might tug on your eye a bit. The color is absolutely gorgeous and I think it would go well with most neutral looks. It was very smart of Stila to include a sharpener in the back.

If I had to give it a grade I would get it a B. The product does stay on and works well as a base, but I wish it was a little creamier. I like how it comes to a point so you can line your lower lash line with it as well, and sharpen it when it starts getting rounder.

I think it does start to crease a little bit around the end of the day, so it would be a good idea to use a primer with this. There is another one called pink violet that is lovely as well, and one called midnight blue that is very pigmented.

Retails for $22

Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash

I was eyeing these during Christmas time but passed because I was more interested in the eyeliners. It's a good thing I waited until now to get them as they are ten dollars cheaper now. So when I went to Ulta to return the Physician Formula products and the L'Oreal lip balm I was thinking about getting another Stila Smudge Crayon (review will be up after this) but then I realized I could get 5 similar products for $3 cheaper. Anways, here's the review:

Ummm...can I just say how much I love these pencils! They are so pigmented and creamy I want to use them everyday. I tried them on without using a primer and actually they worked very well. They also don't tug on your eye. Overall very happy with this purchase!
