Just a few things I’m vibin with this month.
1. This month’s issue of Glamour
. Not only is Glamour one of my fave magazines but my babe is on the cover!
3. Benefit’s They’re Real!
mascara- I am absolutely obsesssed with this mascara. My only qualm is that I wish it came in darker kohl color. Otherwise love!
4. Elf Small Stipple Brush
– I have been wanting to try a stipple brush and this was the perfect starter..and super cheap! It was only like $3!
5. COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Compact Foundation
in True Ebony. I actually use this as a blush on its own, a base for my powder blushes annnnnnd as a tool to contour my face. Its a little darker than my skin tone and is the perfect tool to use when I want to create a sharper, more drastic contour.
INGLOT Pure Pigment Eye Shadow
– If you are looking for eye shadows, I would def recommend Inglot. Their eye shadows are super pigmented, a great price, and come in almost every color. I really love this shimmery color…looks great on a night out.
Last but not least…7. Riri Hearts MAC
: Talk that Talk matte lipstick- Now I’ve said it before and now I will say it again, I looveee a matte lip and this color is perfect for fall. Love it!
Hey guys! I decided to start a summer beauty series on my blog. Every Wednesday I will be featuring one of my favorite beauty products. This week I’m gonna start off with my go-to, #1, can’t go without beauty product…eyeliner! If I was on a deserted island and I had to choose one product to bring, eyeliner would definitely be it!
I use L’oreal Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black.
It is seriously the best thing ever made! It lasts all day and I love it because it is super dark and actually provides some contrast for my dark skin tone. Its perfect for a quick winged eyeliner look and is a great alternative to liquid or gel eyeliners and brushes, especially if you need something to take on the go. I am seriously gonna rant and rave about this product because it has never failed me! Go out and try it!
Note: I was a little perplexed at first about how to use it, I thought it was twist up but you will need a pencil sharpener.

I would also like to give an Honorable Mention to another L’oreal product.
L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner
Its a cool product and is really dark when worn alone. But…it doesn’t last nearly as long and doesn’t work as well over an eye shadow. Its great for a smoky eye look or can even double as a black eye shadow. Also, since the pencil is so large, you will not get as much precision as you would with a smaller pencil.
Rating: 3 stars
Hope you guys enjoyed my first Makeup Wednesday!
P.S. Let me know if you want me to do a post about any specific beauty product and I will see what I can do. =]
