What’s in my make-up bag?

15 Nov

This is what I carry with me everyday.

Starting from top and then left to right:

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Medium.  It’s a good powder, does it’s job.  Keeps me from looking too oily 🙂

Sephora Kabuki Brush.  It’s retractable and perfect for the purse.  I got this on clearance last year and it’s now gone from the site.  This is the closest I could find for the price.

Starlooks Kohl Liner in Obsidian.  Still available and only $9.00 USD.

Revlon ColorBurst in Fliratious Charmeuse $12.88 USD.  I love that this doubles as a lip balm. It’s so soft.

Hikari lipstick in Cabernet $13.00 USD

Sephora + Pantone Universe Collection lipstick in Pure Marsala.  This was a limited edition color last year and I went bonkers over it.  There are still items left over in that shade on Sephora’s website.  It’s a red brown shade, and I’m still a little obsessed with it.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey $17 USD.  This is one of my favorite make-up items of all tume.

Blotterazi by beautyblender.  This was a Birchbox sample because I don’t know I would actually purchase this.  It’s $20.00 USD and it’s supposed to be an alternative to blotting.  But, if it really worked would I still be carrying around my MAC Mineralize?

Hope you lovelies enjoyed what is in my purse!

Thanks for reading!!

Review! Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil

19 Sep

Thank you Ipsy Glam Bag for September 2013!

I received a Starlooks lip liner in a previous Glam Bag, and I was happy with it.  It was smooth and creamy, and didn’t chalk or flake.

BUT, eye liner is a whole different ball game.  And I was hoping that the Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil would live up to the high standards of its lip liner cousin.

$12.00 USD

From Starlooks:

Dramatically emphasize your eyes with Starlooks’ intensely-pigmented Kohl Eye pencils! These ultra-soft liners glide across delicate lids without pulling. Try a smokey effect by blending outwards with a fluffy brush! Each extremely creamy Kohl Liner can also be used as a base on the entire lid. Impossible to choose between 10 stunning and super saturated shades!

My review:

This is a really nice dark rich black.  It lives up to every promise the company makes!  It’s smooth, it’s soft, and it lasts.

I tried to smudge it with a fluffy brush as Starlooks advises and it came out really nice!  Check it out:

This is a corporate work look, so I did’t go very heavy.  I used the Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil on the top and bottom lids.

I’m also wearing a light pink eye shadow on the lids.

I’ve work it without eye shadow as well, and with my NYX HD Primer it stays on pretty well.  However, the eye shadow holds in in place a bit better.  BUT, I have really oily eye lids.  If you are not me, this probably wouldn’t be an issue for you.

I was hoping they carry the liner in purple, but no luck.

If this was the last crayon eye liner I could ever purchase, I would be very happy 🙂

What’s your favorite eye liner?

11 Sep

2013-09-11 08.59.55

I’m happy I finally got around to blogging about August because my Ipsy  September Glam Bag arrived yesterday….unexpectedly!  I didn’t think it would be shipped until next week since I didn’t get an option of a Sneak Peek this month.

So BONUS!  It was like a true surprise.  I had no idea what to expect.  Zero.  Zilch.  Nada.

The bag is awesome!!!!  And I love LOVE the makeup bag this month.  It’s going in my purse tonight.  Bam.

What I got:

Elizabeth Mott Mascara sample

Cailyn Lip Balm in Big Apple.  (I can’t wait to try this, the color is so gorgeous in the bottle)

Nyx eye shadow

Starlooks eyeliner in Obsidian

I’m really psyched for the lip balm.  I have Cailyn gel liner, and I’m so happy with the quality.  I expect nothing less from this.

Reviews of all products will happen!

What did you get in your Ipsy bag???
