Urban Decay Smoked Eye Pencil Set

"Smokey doesn't always mean black... deep, dynamic jewel tones,shimmering pewters, and chocolate neutrals all create super-sexy eyes. This quintessential set includes all these shades, plus our award- winning black, in experimental, travel-friendly sizes. If you're thinking of toying with a sultry look, our creamy, vibrant,waterproof pencils are the perfect partners in crime"
                                                                                             - Urban Decay

Urban Decay 24/7 liners have recently become my favorite! This set is perfect with the holidays coming around because you can ask for one or give one as a present. I love that the set includes not only gorgeous neutrals, but also a blue and purple for when you want to add a pop of color to your eyes.  It costs $38 and comes with six liners.That is a pretty amazing value for the quality and quantity of these eyeliners! They wear for a really long time with budging a bit. Also, the pigmentation is incredible.

Texture: These liners are super soft and creamy; They glide on really smoothly.


ZERO- the perfect basic matte black

UZI- metallic gray with silver glitter

SMOG- metallic coppery bronze

DEMOLITION- matte dark brown

MAINLINE- matte teal

EMPIRE-mostly matte deep purple

 OIL STICK- gray with silver glitter (THIS IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE "SMOKED" SET, I just wanted to add it because it is another Urban Decay eyeliner that I own)

I would definitely recommend this eyeliner pencil set! It's limited edition so get one,if you want, before it's gone.

Pretty Girl Lip Gloss Treatment

Hey everyone for today's review I have Pretty Girl's Lip Gloss Treatment. These glosses are all super pigmented and have very good longevity. Consequently, they are a little sticky, but for how long they last, I think that it is worth it. Also, the formula is very thick and makes your lips look incredibly full. They all have a nice amount of shimmer in them that makes your lips shine with out looking like you stuck a bunch of glitter on them.I think this is very important as I am not a fan of stray glitters on your lips because that in no way looks natural. Anyway, these lip glosses are definitely something to check out if you are looking for a super pigmented long lasting lip gloss!

Although the bases of these lipglosses are different colors the super tiny glitter colors in them are the same colors(silver,gold,pink and blue.)

Love of my life!:

Benefit Matterial Girl

I recently placed an order on and came across a product I have never heard of before. This took me as a surprise because benefit is my favorite makeup brand and I always check out their site for new stuff. As it turns out this powder is only sold online which is why I had never seen it in person before.

What is it?: A mattifying setting loose powder.

Packaging: Of course the packaging is super cute, but it is actually very good quality. It feels very sturdy and the cap twists off easily. It comes with a puff which I don't use because I prefer a brush.

Price: $24

I have worn this product everyday for a month now and it has become my favorite powder. I can not even explain how well it actually mattifies your skin! One day my forehead was looking a little shiny and I dusted a very small amount on and my forehead was instantly matte!Wow that was cheesy but really, I am in love with this powder!

I would definitely this out if you are looking for a powder or if you are planning on placing an order on! It's a great powder for keeping your foundation on all day and keeping the shine away!

Best Mascara Primer

Recently I have been really into mascara primers.I have tried the one from Tarte and didn't really notice any difference. The latest one that I have tried is the "lash building primer" by Clinique. This one actually does make a huge difference in the length of my lashes! I have gotten so many compliments about my eyelashes and it is because of this primer(and my favorite mascara Benefit's They're Real.)
What Clinique claims-"Lash-conditioning undercoat boosts the benefits of Clinique mascaras. Unique polymer combination holds mascara to lashes for a longer, fuller look and extended wear. Moisturizing formula helps condition and mend dry lashes. Ophthalmologist tested."

I don't use any Clinique mascaras so I can't speak for that part of the claim. However I really can see a difference in my natural lashes after using this primer for about a month. They are much stronger and more conditioned!

Best way to apply- I have found that the best way to use this product is to apply and let it dry for a minute before applying your regular mascara.

Lashes with just Primer:

The proof is in the pictures!
This mascara primer is very wet which is something I usually don't like with mascaras but becasue of the amazing results I am willing to work with it.

Price- $16 at Sephora

Overall Thoughts: This product has completely changed the way I do my makeup1 Now I focus on my lashes and I have gotten a lot of compliments because of them. If you are looking for a way to make your eyelashes stronger and longer I would definitely check this out!
