MAC Eye Kohl


*PW Hall of Fame Alert*!!! MAC’s Eye Kohl is the equivalent of the little black dress– (only better–indulge in deep dish and beer at 4am and it still fits like a glove 😉 — it’s classy, and looks great with everything.

NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil

What my inner Product Whore said when seeing these bright and sparkly Shadow Pencils from Nars: “Need. All. The. Colors. Now.” What the (semi)-sensible Product Whore actually DID? Bought ONE, in Goddess (yup). It looked REALLY good for an hour, SORTA good for 3 hours, and non-existent for 6 hours. Amazing color selection, but unless you have the energy to reapply throughout the day, I’d move it along, gals.

Stila Convertible Eye Color

I think Stila designed Convertible Eye Color just for me– meaning one who’s clumsy, lazy…but loves to look fab in a hurry 😉 This is virtually fool-proof, even when you make a mistake (which I have, often) and smudge a bunch, it STILL looks great. It only comes in a few colors, so it was only fair that I bought all of them. 🙂

Sephora Collection Nano Eyeliner

I wanted a black eyeliner. No, white. No, gold. No… green. I floated through the aisles of Sephora until I landed in front of my version of heaven- the Nano Eyeliners from the Sephora Collection, in every color a PW could ever dream of- all for 5 dollars each!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

When picking a new eyeliner, I felt like I should trust anything that had the words “Kat Von D, “Tattoo” and “Eyeliner” in the same sentence. And so it went- this stuff doesn’t budge, and goes on like a charm. Thanks for having our back, Ms. Von D. 🙂

Avon Glimmersticks

OH how I wish for the good old days when the Avon lady would come a-callin’, and oh, how I wish she were holding a bundle of Glimmersticks, all for me, myself and I. A total steal for less than a 10 spot, and they go on like a dream. Now, excuse me while I close my eyes and wish again for my Fairy Avon Lady…

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

Let’s just get this out of the way- Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Gel Eyeliner is one of the best eyeliners out there.

Tarte Inner Rim Brightener

OK, Tarte- thank you for understanding that white eyeliner in the corners of your eyes, if not done properly, can look a little ghoulish. This eye brightener instead goes with nude, a much better option for enhancing the whole eye area. Glides on very well, and it’s a great option for us pale ladies. Paired with a little mascara, this was enough to save me from an “overcompensating with a heavy-handed application of an e.l.f. palette” moment. 🙂

Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner (M.A.C.)

You’ll always find one of these Pearlglide Intense Eyeliners from MAC in mama’s makeup bags. (Consider that mama’s not even an eyeliner person, and you’ll understand the magnitude here, PWs.) Super soft and creamy, but stays on, in a array of colors. Favorite shade– Lord It Up- HAWT.

Fluidline (MAC)

A gal pal was kind enough to do my makeup for an event recently. I’m always skeptical about any eyeliner, being cursed with, what I call “eternally oily eyelids” (a terrible affliction, BTW). My pal convinced me this was the Cadillac of eyeliners and instead of running to the loo to refresh every 30 minutes, I’d be enjoying the company of my friends at the carving station with some top shelf booze (this was no joke). She was right, and I’m running out immediately to purchase my own (instead of stealing hers, which I considered, too–sorry, Amy- kisses!)
