    Too Faced Foiled Liner

    Goes on like BUTTER!

    Probably not the usual thought you have with eyeliner, but this goes on so incredibly smooth that it's almost unbelievable. There isn't even a hint of pull when you're putting it on, so it's really easy to apply. I use it to make the bulk of the shape I want for my liner, then come back with an angled precision brush to edge it and make my corners. I bought it in Metallic Mermaid and the color is such a gorgeous shade of green. It really looks exactly like the color example on the end and has just a touch of shimmer. It's also held out with me through stupidly long days and exertion, so the staying power is fabulous. It's so worth the money and I'm going to be getting more colors very soon!

  • Three Custom Color Specialists Lip Gloss Wands

    I received TCC's special Breast Cancer Awareness lip gloss as a birthday present, and it is quickly on its way to becoming my favorite lip gloss. In the tube, the color looks incredibly pink, but as soon as it's on, any fears I had seem completely silly. The color is bright enough to be playful, but subtle enough not to suffer that "HOLYCRAPPINK!" that tends to happen with pinks. It's super smooth and not in the least bit sticky, and while it doesn't last through eating, it does last a few hours for me with "uninterrupted" wear. And it makes my lips feel a lot softer and more moisturized after I've worn it. I really couldn't be happier, and when it runs out, I'm absolutely getting more.

  • Herbal Essences Shimmery Nights Shimmer Spray Gel

    I'm a big fan of things that sparkle, so when I saw this spray gel, I thought I could have two things I really love in one: smooth, manageable hair and a touch of glitz. While I could personally go for a little more glitter, it's definitely good for some subtle sparkle. The BIG plus to it is actually the hold it gives. It's not a stiff hold or sticky, but it does keep all the fly-aways and shorter hairs from misbehaving when I'm out and about. So if you need crazy, hardcore hold or really obvious glitter, this isn't a good pick. But if you need just a touch of control and a little hint of sparkle when the light hits, then definitely grab this one.

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara

    Fat and Cheap in all the right ways!

    I'm usually really leery of using "drugstore" brand makeup because I haven't had great experiences with them in the past. Mascara is one of those things that generally gives me grief because I have blond eyelashes. Even worse, some of my eyelashes will try to stick together, and it's really obvious if I'm using a bad product. For LashBlast, I was suspicious, especially when I saw how big the wand was and the way the brush still held onto excess product. But after I did the toilet-paper trick to get the extra off, that big, fat wand actually worked incredibly well! It really made my eyelashes look even longer than usual, and it's not so heavy that my eyelashes get all gummed up. It even works great defining those itty-bitties on my lower lid. The easiest way to tell it's time to let it go is that it starts flaking while you're wearing it. Nothing's worse than finding little black spots on your face and having to get those off without messing up the rest of your makeup. All in all though, this is really a fabulous mascara for the price. I've tried others, but this is definitely the one I keep coming back to for my low-cost mascara.

  • Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow

    Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow

    Smooth and Fabulous

    I've always been fond of Urban Decay shadows, but there are definitely times I couldn't use the ultra-sparkle without feeling a bit overdone. The matte shadows have everything I love about the originals, but with that option for subtlety to fit any situation. I can apply it light and get subtle, or I can layer and still make it bold, but not have to worry about my girls saying I've been abusing fairies again. The real test was wearing it through one of the convention events I do, and when I made it back to the room, it still looked great. A little fading, but I didn't have any stray bits or creasing, so that was a huge plus. It's definitely pricier than your average drug/department store brand, but I feel like the quality of the shadow and how much use you get out of them makes it worth it. The way they darkened the lids makes it easy to tell them apart from my sparkly ones when I'm grabbing in my bin too, so I really like that too. I tend to stack my shadows for travel convenience, so Urban Decay makes it really easy to pack a lot into a little space. Overall, when I have the money to spend, these are definitely on my list.
