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…

Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara

I used Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara one day when I had 2.3 minutes to throw something on my face and run out the door.

Clinique’s High Definition Mascara

CONFESSION TIME: I bought Clinique’s High Definition Mascara based on a friend’s HIGH recommendation and used it for days incorrectly, meaning I was meant to use the comb to define and enhance my lashes.

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara

I can’t hate ya, Neutrogena. You do certain things VERY well, like face wash, and skin tint. Your mascara, however… needs a little work.

MAC’s Opulash Mascara

Anyone else ever dream of being the lead ingenue in their own personal French romantic comedy, a la Amelie- all giant eyes and lush, curly eyelashes? Ah, good, I knew I wasn’t the only one! MAC’s Opulash Mascara is here to make your little gamine heart sing.

L’oreal’s Voluminous Mascara

You know that boy everyone thinks is really cute on the football team, so you just go along and smile and nod, even though you think he’s a total Monet? That’s how I feel about L’oreal’s Voluminous Mascara.
