My 2011 Faves - 1 (Eyes and Lips)
Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Palette - My go-to palette. This palette has everything you need to create looks from dark, smoldering smokey eyes to every day nude looks. It's perfect for traveling because it really saves space. Plus, you get the gorgeous textures and great pigmentation that most Sleek Makeup palettes are known for!
MAC TechniKohl Eye Liner in Graph Black - My favorite liner when it comes to smokey eyes and smudged looks. This one is suuuper dark and it lasts forever, even on my waterline.
Mikyaji Sabaya Liquid Liner - My absolute favorite liquid liner. The tip is just the perfect size for creating a winged look and again this one is very dark and lasts forever and ever (even through our crazy humidity) !
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eyeshadow Pencil in Rehab - It's part of Urban Decay's 24/7 collection, so you know it won't crease or smudge. It glides across skin is easy to blend (until it sets). Rehab is the perfect shimmery taupe for every day wear.
Benefit They're Real Mascara - Only my favorite mascara EVER! This makes me look like I'm wearing fake lashes and even though it's not "waterproof" I haven't had any problems with it when I'm in the water. And it's the only mascara that I can put on immediately before I wear my glasses. All the other ones tend to smudge on my lenses.
Sleek Makeup Pout Paint in Pin Up - This pout paint is the perfect red. It's not too bright, or too dark. It's just a gorgeous, classic red that really does make me feel like a pin up girl! The lasting power in these is amazing. I don't need to touch it up at all, even if I'm eating and drinking all night!
Urban Decay Primer Potion - A non-brainer, really. As I tell everyone "if you put this on under your makeup, you can drink, dance, eat and pass out and when you wake up your eye makeup won't have budged at ALL". True story!
Garnier Light Eye-Brightening Roller - I've been having a problem with dark circles lately (mainly due to my crazy sleeping habits) and a couple of weeks with this usually does the trick. But what I really love using it for is reducing puffiness first thing in the morning. A couple swipes of this and you can almost not tell that I just woke up hehe
Illamasqua Lipstick in Atomic - Oh, how I love this. The color is a gorgeous bright fuschia with a little sheen to it. This one surprised me because by how well it lasts and it is not drying at all. It's definitely my go-to when I want bright lips. (ps I miss my red hair!:( )
WetnWild Coloricon Walking On Eggshells - This is the palette that I pull out the most for during the day. The crease color is just dark enough to give me depth without being obvious. And the shades are shimmery, but not crazy glittery so they are easy to blend and wear.
Well, there ya have it folks! This post makes me realize how I'm totally slacking on my reviews. Gotta work on that! hehe Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3 in the next few days.
Happy New Year Everyone!!
