Urban Decay Gets Razor Sharp!

Urban Decay Razor Sharp Long-Wear Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion and Retrograde

In life, there are certain things that some people are just better at than others. There are people who are great at sports. Or math and science. Or applying liquid liner. There’s a special set of skills you need for sports, math, science and liquid liner. I have none of them. Physically, I’m the laziest person you’ll ever meet. You’ll never see me kick a ball or run a mile. And math and science? Forget about it! I need a calculator and cheat sheet next to me at all times to be at least halfway decent. Liquid liner is no different. You’d think it’s not as complicated as sports, math or science but applying liquid liner is always a struggly situation for me.

There’s either too much product on the brush. Or not enough product on the felt tips so it streaks. Or my favorite (insert sarcasm) when I try to create a wing and it skips and drags or globs all over the place. Liquid liner is just the struggle for me! I like to use the felt tip ones, like Stila’s and Too Faced’s, for a quick swipe to help my falsies blend in but I can never quite master the regular ol’ brush ones.


Too Faced Black Sketch Marker Liquid Art Eyeliner Review

Too Faced Black Sketch Marker Liquid Art Eyeliner

Mastering liquid eyeliner is truly an art form. One wrong move and you can ruin that gorgeous smokey eye you’ve worked tirelessly on blending until your arms hurt. Or you could completely trash that wicked wing you’ve been dying to perfect. Liquid liner is a beast and it can smell fear. That’s why I prefer felt tip eyeliner pens like the new Too Faced Sketch Marker Liquid Art Eyeliners. They’re exactly my thing: super intense, sleek packaging and a precise tip.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Review

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Makeup is all about being creative and having fun but there’s a few products that should definitely be taken seriously–like liquid eyeliner. Like animals, liquid eyeliner can smell fear and intimidation. It just seems to prey on the meek and innocent leaving crooked lines and black smears all over the place. Liquid eyeliners can be dangerous! Well, sometimes. The liquid eyeliners that come with those little flimsy brushes that require a steady, experienced painting hand are definitely dangerous. However, the felt tip marker liquid eyeliners are a lot less intimidating and dangerous. After years of despising liquid liners, I’ve kinda grown a liking to Sharpie-esque liquid liners. They’re so much easier to use and control–even with a shaky hand.


Jouer Kitten Liner Review

Jouer Kitten Liner

When I received an email from IpsyOS for free tickets to Ipsy’s Generation Beauty Conference in LA I didn’t know what to expect besides a good time. Let me tell you. It was so much better than I expected! There were tons of brands in attendance with their own booths surrounded by some of the most beautiful and stylish people I’ve ever seen crammed into one huge space. I was like a kid in a a candy store meeting brand representatives and seeing so many friendly smiling faces. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better I started racking up goodie bags galore filled with brands I’ve never tried but were eager to test out.


Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liner Review

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liner

As much as I love eyeshadow (and hoarding palettes lol), I don’t always have the time to create pretty eye looks. Or blend too much of anything for that matter. So I typically opt for a quick swipe of liner or a nice cat eye if I have a little extra time. Either way, eyeliner is essential in my stash and a must have in my morning routine to define my eyes and help my falsies blend seamlessly. That’s why I like to keep a handful of them around in different formulas to suit whichever mood I’m in. Or simply fit into my busy schedule.


Maybelline Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner Review

Maybelline Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner

If you know me, you know my signature look is simple. Natural base, bold lip, falsies and winged liner. It’s my go to look for when I’m in a rush, feeling lazy or just in the mood for something simple. The winged liner adds a little edge and oomph to an everyday look without being too overpowering. All you need is a good eyeliner, steady hand and sometimes a brush.

Goodbye August, hello September! I’m not all too excited about winter nipping at my butt anytime soon but I am getting a teeny tiny bit excited for the oversized, warm comfy sweaters and boots that fall brings. And the vampy lipsticks and new collections! Fall always means new makeup. Don’t argue just accept it. There’s so many new products and collections right around the corner (plus holiday) that I’m trying to use up everything in sight to help make room. Here’s what I reached for the most this month:

We’re still experiencing massive snow storms here in Michigan but I’m still feeling the spring spirit! I’m completely over winter right now. I know March just started but I’m ready for the April showers and May flowers already! Speaking of flowers, I’m still very much enjoying my goodies from MAC’s Fantasy of Flowers collection. Especially Phlox Garden! Who knew purple eyeliner could be so exciting?
