I prefer to use a eyeliner pen then any other eyeliner type. For me I can get a closer more precise line. I have tried three different kinds one high end the others drugstore. Is the high end worth the splurge?
ELF Essential Waterproof liner is a 2.00, the jordana Fabuliner is 2.99 and the Lorac Front of the Line Pro Liquid liner is 23.00.
Here are the swatches. I have the Lorac in brown and black.
The ELF liner has a VERY hard tip. It is a total skip for me. The Jordana is excellent for the price BUT the splurge is worth it to me. The Lorac has a non fraying tip that is the perfect stiffness and give. I love a bargain but I won’t buy either of the drug store again.
Hope this review was helpful 😀 any other’s you can recommend me to try?
This is my day today. Once again trying to find the perfect organization for my stash. Why is it so messy before it gets finished? Oh wait… I’m never finished lol.
If I ever get done I’ll share how I’ve found organization bliss. 🙂 if anyone had any tips please leave them below!

I wasn’t sure what look I wanted to do for this blog hop. I wanted to do something unique yet simple that anyone can recreate. Then TA DA the third grade picture lets you play with your makeup and colors yet is easy to replicate. Here is how I did it.
Draw flowers, rainbow, anything you want but it has to be imperfect. This is to look like a third grader painted it. I used Jordana eyeshadow pencil in Black.
Then I filled in with various cheek stains, lipsticks, and cream eyeshadows.
I blended the background making a point to not stay in the lines etc. To me the beauty of this is the child like feel. And the finish product.
Products used: Jordana eyeshadow crayon in Black
Nyx Jumbo eye pencils in Cashmere and Rust
Radiant Orchid Sephora pantone cream blush
ELF Matte Lip Color in rich red
Check out these other posts in the blog hop and have a wonderfully spooky Halloween!
I have tried to easy peel products. This post is exploring if I feel it is better to get the higher end or if the lower end is just as good or better. The two products I am reviewing are…
Missha Super Aqua Oxygen Micro Essence Peeling and it retails for 23.00 from Missha.com. I am not affiliated and purchased this product on my own. Per the website…
The gel-type peeling essence is gentle and gives an intensive care to clean and hydrate skin. Watch as it bubbles to remove dead skin cells, impurities, and oil.
The Oxygen Micro Peeling System has the benefits of peeling + nourishing + soothing + turn-over.
Sonya Dakar Flash Facial. I had a sample I talked about months ago. It is pricey at 90.00 but Fab FIt Fun box had it in there so I got it practically for free as I only spent 35.00 for that box. Per the website …
Reveal fresh young skin in 1 minute! This safe and effective exfoliating gel quickly sloughs away dead skin and other impurities. Created with lactic acid to gently detoxify, Hylasome (5 times more moisturization than standard hyaluronic acid), and anti-oxidant rich resveratrol to nourish. Skin is left soft to the touch, plumper and instantly brighter. The results are immediate and undeniable. Recommended for all skin types.
Apply daily. Massage a thin layer onto clean, dry skin and allow to dry for 1-2 minutes. Gently rub off in circular motions. Rinse face with lukewarm water and follow with appropriate Sonya Dakar treatment product.
With having used both a number of times. I definitely say the splurge is worth it over the steal. I just never felt it peeled anything and the Sonya Dakar leaves my face uber soft and brightened.
Again not sponsored video and the opinion is mine alone. 😀 CHeck out my social media while your at it… please! find them over there _____________>>>>>>
In one of my classes from Dallas I learned some must have for makeup kits to help you carry less items to your appointments. They are definitely either on my want list or I already have it.
What I don’t have:
Makeup For Ever Flash palette
What it is:
A 12-piece palette of twelve vibrant Flash Colors for eyes, cheeks, and lips.
What it does:
This 12-Piece Make Up For Ever Flash Color Case is found in the kits of many well-known makeup artists. Create an array of looks for eyes, cheeks, and lips with this luxe palette that’s perfect for on-the-go touch ups.
This set contains:
– 12 x 0.21 oz Flash Color in Grey, Neutral Brown, Purple Grey, Rosewood, Dark Antique Pink, Ivory, Livid, Kaki, Pink Brown, Fresh Pink, Sienna, Rusty Brown
Makeup For Ever Aqua Seal
What it is:
A liquid converter that transforms powder formulas and pencils into smudge-proof, long lasting makeup.
What it does:

What else you need to know:
This product is alcohol-free and has been ophthalmologist tested.
Senna Cheeky Blush Palette
Each pro sized and kit friendly palette contains 10 shades of a HD, long wear and oil-free cream to powder formula. Powder suspended into a cream wax and silicone base instantly blends with any skin tone and provides a semi-matte powder finish. When applied with brush, sponge or fingers, these velvety creams become natural or saturated powder blushes, bronzers, highlighters or lip colors.
Multi-tasking formula for creating a gorgeous, flawless complexion
Created to mimic the appearance of healthy, radiant skin
Long-lasting formula provides medium to full coverage

What it is:
An edgeless, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator.
What it does:
The unique shape and exclusive material available only with beautyblender® ensures impeccable, streak-free application with minimum product waste. Use it with primers, foundations, powders, cream blushes, and any other complexion product.
What else you need to know:
Beautyblender features an open cell structure that fills with small amounts of water when wet. This allows the sponge to be “full” so that the makeup product sits on top of the sponge rather than being absorbed, allowing you to use less product every time. When wet, beautyblender doubles in size and becomes even softer, returning to its original size when it air dries. Handcrafted in the USA.
Palette and Spatula
I purchased a Cinema Secrets set in Dallas and it was a life saver in my classes.
Well that is all for now. Do you have anything that is a must have in your kit?
A trend on youtube is gurus cleaning out their stash. I am a makeup hoarder. Do i regret all I have spent. Yes and No. The stuff I love of course not but there is a lot of deals and trends I spent money on that I do regret.
Right out the gate on this series there was nothing I wanted to purge. So this is a stash review of single shadows I own. The milani’s I just recently purchase and most of them have dual functions for me. I plan on doing a more in-depth post on this later.
And disclaimer I am far from bragging… I just like these kind of posts so wanted to do one myself. And I purchased all these items myself. So without further ado…
What do you have for single shadows. Is there anything you would like a review of? Let me know 😀
