IMG_4123

Wowzers, is this a great eye liner! There are many eye liners, for many reasons, right? There are thick liners for the cat-eye look, and there are thin liners for a little extra “pop.”

This glorious eye liner from Hourglass is a TINY gel liner that is absolute perfection. It is bold, BLACK and stays PUT the whole day!

The thinnest, softest, waterproof gel liner. Encapsulated in a 1.5mm mechanical pencil, this liner offers precision accuracy and ease of application. No pot, no brush, no clean-up required. Available in one shade, Obsidian.

• The precision 1.5mm tip ensures effortless control, and allows for lining in between lashes.
• The unique formula, poured into a slim mechanical component, has the malleability, intensity and staying power of a traditional gel liner. No pot, no brush, no clean-up required.
• The waterproof, transfer-proof and long-lasting formula delivers extended wear.
• Two clicks is all you need to line the eye. Each advanced mechanical pencil lasts for approximately 17 to 20 uses.
• The supple, moisturizing formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly.
• Available in a package of 3, or as a single liner
• Ophthalmologist tested.

LOVE this product!! $45 for THREE liners!

REVIEW: Benefit’s “They’re Real!” Mascara is another winner!

Benefit-they-re-real-beyond-mascara

I think that mascara is one of those things that’s REALLY hard to get right. I have found that so many expensive mascara’s are just as good as drugstore mascara’s. I’ve found that the REALLY expensive mascara’s can still be terrible, when the cheaper options are sometimes better!

When I went to Ulta this weekend, I bought the liner (below) and this mascara. I also bought Urban Decay’s original NUDE palette, but I’ll get to that later. This mascara is UNFREAKINGBELIEVABLE. To me, it’s on the higher end, price wise, but it might just be totally worth it.

It goes on SO smoothly, and my eyelashes looks fanfreakingtastic. I will DEF be buying this again!

Benefit’s ‘They’re Real!’ mascara is a jet-black mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for a spectacular “out-to-here” look.

What it does:
This breakthrough bestseller reveals lashes you never knew you had! The specially designed brush features staggered bristles that grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The custom-domed tip uses precision bristles to lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes. With a glossy, jet-black, long-wearing formula, you’ll flaunt luxurious, silky lashes that won’t smudge, clump, or dry out. True story!

What else you need to know:
Go horizontal! The staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length and volume. Then go vertical! The custom-domed tip with precision bristles lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes.

Research results:
In a consumer panel survey, the following results were reported:
- 94% saw dramatic length and volume
- 90% saw base-to-tip curl
- 94% saw visible lift
-100% saw long-wearing results

I’m dying to try Lancome’s NEW Grandiose Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara! How cool does this look?

This is a first-of-its-kind mascara that provides access to all lashes for bigger, brighter eyes.

This revolutionary, Swan Neck™ Wand Mascara provides exceptional length, lift, and volume to all lashes. It features Lancôme’s first patented wand, which works with the shape of your face for the easiest application, and the curve of the wand mixes the mascara with each twist open, allowing for formula that stays fresh longer. The specially designed, elastomer-molded brush perfectly deposits formula on each lash, while smaller bristles effortlessly coat even short lashes from root to tip for ultimate volume. The ultra-black, smudge-free formula features Lancôme’s rose cell extract, which nourishes and smooths lashes while providing infinite buildability. This high-gloss, clump-free mascara leaves lashes fanned out with maximum length, and it is designed with long-wearing, flexible polymers, which allow for easy removal.
