I have to start this post by saying I haven’t liked Milani shadows for a long, long time. Ever since they discontinued the single eye shadows years ago, I haven’t been impressed. So when I saw this display unit and made eye contact with the new formula, I instantly had hope of the good old days.
The L’Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Eyeliner gives a super rich black color. It has an interesting texture, which makes it look like you can peel it off. However, I hate the felt tip applicator. It’s so flimsy that I was making uneven lines. I ended up using my MAC 208 angled brow brush and applying it from the felt tip.
Covergirl Line Exact Liquid Liner was the first drugstore liner that I tried. I loved the small handle, becuase I got a very precise grip. The color was okay at first, because it is the first one that I tried. I realized after I bought a few other liners that the color isn’t very dark. Sometimes it seemed like it was mixed with water.
The Maybelline Eye Studio® Master Precise™ Ink Pen Eyeliner is my favorite right now! I received it at the Essence Best in Black Beauty Awards a couple of weeks ago. If it was rated a winner, then it had to be good! Well, they definitely didn’t dissapoint. The tip is long and firm, perfect for using on its side. The color was a dense black, and lasted all day. I still haven’t found anything to dislike from this product. The only other Maybelline product that was this good was Red Revival lipstick!
My friend Nik told me about the Milani Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Liner, and it totally is. The formula is a little thinner than the others, but I used the entire liner pen with no worries. Can’t beat that!

Hey everyone! Between an internship, school, a new job, blogging and some social media endeavors, I have been the queen of blog neglecting. Oh man. : (
I had a few moments between tasks, so I had to show you this lovely piece of happiness! If you are into makeup palettes, Pixi is for you. Just look at this set above. Doesn’t it remind you of a 65 degree day? The PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette ($35) is a complete face kit! (Have you seen the Ultimate Beauty Kit? It’s loaded with over 50 shadows, blushes and lip colors!) It’s packed with shimmery shadows and lip creams. These aren’t the most intense colors, however. If you like a lot of pigment, you’ll have to apply a few layers of product. You can find this palette exclusively at Target stores or pixibeauty.com!
Note: This product was sent to me for possible review.
You know how to tell when something is really, really good? When you get the product for free, run out of said product, then re-purchase. That’s exactly the case here. I’ve tried a bunch of makeup remover wipes. I used MAC Wipes (30 sheets/$15) for years, mainly because they were the only ones that I knew about. But they worked, and that’s what mattered. Then I found Alcone Wipes (24 individually wrapped sheets/ $11) , which are hands down the best makeup remover wipes on the planet. I cannot say enough good things about the Alcone wipes, but they are a bit too expensive for my taste. In between all of these products, I’ve used baby wipes, which kind of get the job done.
But then, a box of Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes (30 sheets/$5.99) arrived at my door with a few other things. I used them that during several photo ops, and after many long days sporting a full face of makeup. They don’t drip with makeup remover, didn’t sting or burn, and they smell divine. I’ve had a love affair with cucumber scented products forever. They even make a set conveniently for travel (10 wipes/$2.99).
The Yes to empire is more detailed then I realized. Each scent of products works with a different issue.
- Yes to cucumbers is for soothing/sensitive skin
- Yes to carrots is for normal to dry skin and hair
- Yes to tomatoes is for combination/acne prone skin
- Yes to blueberries is for age damaged/mature skin
Great stuff! I purchased my products at Target, and these products are available at over 30,000 locations worldwide!
