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.

STILA Jewel Eye Shadow

You’ve scooped something up faster than you can redeem your VIB points. Sign, we’ve all been there. (Right??) For me, that something sparkly was Stila Jewel Eye Shadow.

Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow

There are a zillion awesome reasons to buy Buxom’s Stay-There Eye Shadow, but for the sake of time and space, I’m just going to give you the top three.

Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up

Bobbi Brown, I’m getting a little obsessed with you. I keep waiting for a product I don’t love, a color that’s a little “off”, a consistency that makes me go “hmmm”. Nope… so far, I’m in lurve. The latest object of my affection is the Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow

A new first in my PW career. I stalked a makeup artist from Bobbi Brown all the way back to her counter to ask her what she had on her eyes. So I could buy it immediately. Do I hang my head in shame? Nope, I hold it up proudly, because my eyelids now shine and glimmer with Sparkle Eye Shadow (in Pebble- but every shade is gorgeous, and wearable). Thanks, girl. And I promise, I won’t make this a habit. 😉

Diorshow Mascara

I was expecting nothing short of a Lash Miracle when I tried Diorshow Mascara, so praised and iconic is the legend.

Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara

Let me tell you about my new favorite person, Sabrina. She works at my local drug store, and the last time I was in, she casually pointed out that the Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara that I had in hand was Buy One, Get One Free. Thus began a very special relationship. it was like each individual lash took on a life of it’s own, in a good, not creepy, way. No clumps, bumps, or lumps. Mascara gets an A; Sabrina, an A+.

GinZing Brightening Mascara

PW Confession Time: Although I think Origins is an amazing company, and I use and love many, MANY of their products, I expected very little of their GinZing Brightening Mascara.

Bobbi Brown Everything Mascara

OK, so this legitimately happened: I asked the gal at the Bobbi Brown counter for a mascara that did “everything”- lengthening, thickening, conditioning, etc. She gave me a wink and a nod and said that she had just the thing, and it was “Everything”.

Translucide Naturally Luminous Loose Powder

I’m a klutzy PW. After breaking my umpteenth pricey pressed powder, I purchased L’oreal’s Translucide Naturally Luminous Loose Powder. The operative word here is “loose”.
