Last month, Pantone announced that the 2013 color of the year would be Emerald, and I couldn’t have been more excited because it’s one of my favorite colors to wear. I’ve been meaning to write this post for a few weeks now, but just haven’t had a lot of time lately between work and Theme Alchemy, a new site I’m starting to sell premium WordPress …Read more »
This review comes from my older sister, Quynh. Since Quynh asked me to get her a new gel liner before I left for The Makeup Show NYC, I snagged this liner from Cailyn Cosmetics. I have a few of Cailyn’s shimmer powders and I was really impressed with them, so I was hopeful that their new gel liner would be a great product for my …Read more »
After seeing some pictures and a video from user “sasakiasahi” on YouTube of simple black eyeliner look highlighted by a bright color liner, I decided to stop by CVS Pharmacy to buy some colored eyeliners. I was trying to find some good Wet ‘n’ Wild ones, but after no luck, I ended up leaving with Milani’s Color Brilliance Eye Pencil in 02 Aqua and 03 …Read more »
Until recently, I used smudgier eyeliners far more regularly than liquid eyeliners. Lately, it’s been Cover Girl’s Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Eyeliner.

But luckily, I couldn’t think of what to write about today, and this sort of just came up. Here are some last minute gifts you can get for $50 and …Read more »
These Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils were one of my first high-end makeup purchases. I was attracted to them while shopping at Sephora because of the range of colors they come in. I’m not one to shy away from color, so unique colors immediately catch my eye. As a matter of fact, the first colors I bought didn’t include the traditional black or brown; …Read more »
I bought this after some good words from Stela, and I’ve been extremely satisfied with it. I can be pretty picky about my eyeliner – usually I use black shadow with an small angled brush to get the results I want. I need an extremely tapered wing on the outer-corners of my eyes, and pencil liner doesn’t quite cut it. I’m not that big of …Read more »
Recently I bought the Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette and one of their brush sets, and I have been very satisfied with the quality of both items. I’ll review the 88 Warm Palette in my next post, and try do some swatches if I can get good quality pics. I also bought an empty quad palette for Stela, which the MAC eyeshadow pans fit perfectly …Read more »
