Nudestix Magnetic Luminous Eye Color

Which is your preferred method for applying eye color? Seems like the pressed powdered pan is the most popular among manufacturers and they do have their benefits, but these have me moving over to the sticks. NUDESTIX Magnetic Luminous Eye Color ($24 @,, are pretty great if you are looking for a shadow that has the primer right inside, color that won’t move once it sets, and wears long. And who doesn't want all those?

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Minis

I can’t express how much of a fan I am of the mini size of liquid lipsticks. To date, I have never used a full-size one up and I pretty much only wear them, so a smaller version actually lets me be able to try more of them like these next ones I picked up at Sephora.

The HUDA BEAUTY Liquid Matte Minis - The Red Edition is 4 deluxe-sizes of their darker shades for only $33 @, which is $8.25 each. #therightprice.

Tarte Cosmetics Chrome Paint Shadow Pots

Wow are these pigments messy! But oh so worth the mess!

What it is: TARTE Chrome Paint Shadow Pots - Your secret to a high-gleam gaze & the richest, most vibrant eyeshadow you’ve ever seen – the mirror-effect loose pigment melts instantly & stays put for hours. Choose from 9 shades for $22 @,,

My take: these are meant to be applied with your fingers (yeah)! I tried them with a brush and nope, fingers work best as your skin warms up the formula to make it easy to spread. The powders are super creamy and blend really well.

B-Glowing Illuminate + Shine Palette

Did you know that the B-GLOWING brand had products out in their name? I didn’t and found out that it was designed for the woman over 40 who wanted a makeup that didn’t feel drying or that accentuated the wrinkles on her skin, in other words, Age Embracing. As the brand says so boldly, “It’s not about fixing flaws, it’s about finding what works for you, and letting yourself GLOW.”

I was able to get my hands on the first product in the line, the Illuminate + Shine Palette ($58 @ Inside are 8 matte/shimmer shadows, a brightening primer and a highlighter. Each is infused with MicroVector Plump GABA-HYA, which is a moisture-rich blend of collagen, hyaluronic acid and a few other ingredients to help plump, hydrate and smooth the skin. I’m not sure if the amount of powder you’re putting on the skin can help it benefit from these ingredients, but ok.

Nudestix Rock N' Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink


Shake, Draw, n’ Roll with NUDESTIX Rock N’ Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink ($24 @,, This liquid liner is so cool and pretty easy to apply.

What it is: a revolutionary rollerball that glides ink on for easy, straight, smooth eye-lining.  

This small little wheel at the end of the handle rolls the liner onto the lid or any place you want to put the color. Simply dip the rollerball into its well to grab some color and then roll. I have hooded lids so it is a challenge to get winged liner and this totally helps in getting the perfect flick in the corner of each eye.

Rimmel Wonder Ombre Holographic Eyeliners

I didn’t realize it but I guess from this post, I am pretty into the whole holographic trend as now I’m really into these liners from RIMMEL. These are their Wonder Ombre Holographic Eyeliners ($5.49 @ One side is a holo and the other is a dark liner in that shade category.

From L to R: Super Nova Sky (blue), Galactic Green (green), Purple Prism (purple), Golden Gaze (gold).

I have not seen holographic color come in many pencil forms like this so it’s nice to be able to add a precise dash of holographic delight anywhere you want.
