    Vincent Longo Vibrant Eye Liner

    cool colors, but clumpy.

    Vincent Longo waterproof liquid liner in Rossino is a mixed bag. I ADORE that it's such an unusual color. You would think a red liner would look awful but it's actually pretty freaking cool. Rihanna is an enormous fan, actually. Going against all common sense, it makes your eyes look super clear and bright drawing away any tiredness or discoloration. The only drawback to this liner is that it takes a few swipes to get it looking good because it seems to clump a tidge. I recommend twirling the applicator inside the tube a few times to whip it up before putting it on.

  • Too Faced Insurance Policy
    10.0

    Too Faced Insurance Policy

    A must have for shadow junkies

    Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance Policy is an awesome deal. You get a full sized tube of the Shadow Primer and 6 of Too Faced shadows in their best selling colors- Full Frontal, Glamazon, Socialite, Boy Toy, Skinny Dip and Lucky Charms. Too Faced has super pigmented gorgeous colors that stay true and need only one swipe to give amazing true color. Bold, beautiful and RICH. They make my eyes feel moisturized and even without the primer go on beautifully. WITH the primer they last all freaking day and have NO fallout whatsoever. Skinny Dip, Boy Toy and Lucky Charms used together is INTENSE. I used these 3 together to go to an Oscar Watching event and spent the entire evening being stopped by women asking me about my shadow. Full Frontal, Glamazon and Socialite manage to be earth tones and still be flashy- subtle flashiness if that's possible? A lot of earth tones go on sheer, but these truly pack a punch staying true to their in-pan color. Even Glamazon, which would appear to go on with no color app is a true champagne that coats the lids with gorgeous sparkly fantabulousness.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Kohl Eyeliner

    It's a powder, but comes in a tube where the applicator comes through a little hole so it doesn't get everywhere and it's firm enough to make a perfect line, even under the lower lashes but miraculously has NO fallout. The Gold Kohl is beautiful, longlasting, and amazing to apply. The rubber applicator gives as smooth a line as a liquid eyeliner but with the smooth blending of a powder. There's a TON in the tube but I do admit that I'm wondering how I'll get it out since the tube is wide and the narrow applicator doesn't seem to have a lot of wiggle. Still for the price it's as good (or better) as any department store brand.

  • Stila Mandarin Mist Eau de Parfum
    7.0

    Stila Mandarin Mist Eau de Parfum

    Smells gorgeous but has no wear time

    A lot of perfumes seem like too much for a beautiful sunny spring day, but Stila mandarin mist actually smells like what a sunny spring day feels like. Though it is a light citrus floral, it still manages to feel refined as opposed to overly girly. It is a super light scent, but though it dies down fairly quickly it still lingers in a subtle and seductive way.

  • Stila Convertible Eye Color

    Stila Convertible Eye Color

    Brilliant and convenient

    I adore these desert island pencils! On one side you have a self sharpening twist up creamy liner. These are long wearing with precise application. Flip it over and there's a shadow pencil in a matching shade! Then there's a 3rd cap that when removed, gives you the most divinely soft and cushiony blending sponge it has ever been my honor to schmear across my eyes. Oh Stila! I give you kisses for making it so easy to have gorgeous eyes! The teak color will really give blue eyed gals a *pop*.

  • Too Faced Starry Eyed Liner
    10.0

    Too Faced Starry Eyed Liner

    Tons of glitter payoff with no flaking!

    in the "of course it's super nifty" category is Too Faced Starry Eyed Liquid Glitter Liner in Restraining Order. Despite it's super high glitter payoff, there is little to no fallout. One little piece of glitter in my eye and it's watering like a rainspout, so I love how this stuff stays where it's 'sposed to. YAY! I get to actually have my eye makeup stay where I put it! Ahhhh, modern science......

  • Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara
    8.0

    Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara

    As usual, Lancome mascaras prove to be the best on the market.

    This is one of their less fancy mascaras, but it's perfect for everyday use. You still get high definition and crazy lengthening without the drama of some of their other mascaras. This one is great for the office or casual days. You still have fabulous lashes without looking like you're trying too hard. It accentuates and separates the lashes with typical Lancome panache (and lack of clumps or sticking together.)

  • Korres Natural Products Mango Butter Lipstick
    9.0

    Korres Natural Products Mango Butter Lipstick

    Can Korres do any wrong, I wonder?

    Korres all natural lipsticks are enough to make my heart skip a beat. I have the wine red, which is a lush, plush, sexy and pouty long wearing color that is highly moisturizing despite it's extended wear status. The slender tube shape makes perfect application a breeze , even for the oddest shaped lips. And the smell? YUMMY! I'm not sure what makes it smell like that, but it's a sorta vanilla cake-like smell. ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: -Guava: Provides vitamin C and antioxidant protection that guards against free-radical damage. -Shea Butter and Aloe Extract: Offer soothing, emollient, and restoring action to restore chapped lips. -Rosemary Extract and Vitamin E: Offer antioxidant and antiaging benefits. -Castor Seed Oil and Natural Waxes: Help to prolong wear. What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Petro-Chemicals - GMO

  • Boscia Fresh Blotting Linens
    10.0

    Boscia Fresh Blotting Linens

    Why do birds suddenly appear....

    Every time Boscia Blotting Linens are near? Just like me, they long to be, blotting oil from my face without messing up my makeup or caking on powder..... Okay, so that sorta lost it's musical momentum there, but you get the idea. Can you say bomb diggity bomb? The green tea ones are made from finely-woven leaf fibers of the Abaca Tree Plant and infused with the anitoxidant green tea to sooth and freshen skin. The lavender ones contain soothing lavender and smell lovely and calming. With these, you don't have to keep packing on powder to touch up your face, and they're perfect for blotting lipstick too! $10 may seem pricey, but I only use 1 or 2 a day, so a package lasts for months. They're about credit card sized until you pull them out, so the sleek pack easily fits into the smallest purse. These fall under the category of "can't live without".

  • Giorgio Armani Code Sheer Eau de Toilette
    3.0

    Giorgio Armani Code Sheer Eau de Toilette

    Yeah, and water is sheer, too

    Okay, so this smells wonderful. "This is the newest version of armani code, sheer's reworked juice features orange blossom, cyclamen, jasmine, lily of the valley and honey." Oh the delight I felt when I first spritzed it on! Oh the sadness when an hour later I couldn't smell ANYTHING at all, even when putting my pulse points directly up to my nose. I thought maybe I'd just gotten used to it so I asked Mister what he thought of it. "I don't smell anything. Oh, wait, is that your shampoo? I think I'm smelling your shampoo. Yep. That's it." So he could smell my shampoo from 12 hours prior better than the perfume I'd been wearing for little over an hour. For $67.00 that's just a little TOO sheer.
