Review: Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen

I have a confession to make… I’ve been cheating on my MAC fluidline! In a past post, I mentioned that MAC Fluidline was my favorite eyeliner until I encountered the Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen.

This eyeliner is unlike any other! It retails for $6.56 at you local drugstore and is available in three colors; blackest black, black and blackened brown.

This eyeliner claims:

-Felt tip controlled application
-Smudge-proof lasting color that wears up to 16 hours
-Easier to apply than traditional liquid eyeliners

Why I like it:

– ALL of the claims are TRUE!

– The felt tip is incredible with precision

– The lasting power is pretty good too! It will definitely last an entire work way.

– It is most definitely easier to apply than traditional liquid eyeliners. The felt tip applicator allows for great control of the product and the line.

– The color is a true black that does not require three coats

– Matte finish!

– Slick pencil like packaging

– Great price

What I don’t like:

– I wish it existed in other colors!

– My cousin has tried this product before and mentioned that the product was not as vibrantly black in the beginning. However, she stored it upside down for over 24hrs to allow the product to go down.

All in all, this is a great product that is definitely worth spending under $7. The color, longevity and ability to create a precise line is incredible!

Let me know what you guys think of this product if you have tried it or plan on trying it.

What are YOU thankful for?

Who else is going shopping for Black Friday?

Micheal Kors at Ross?

Happy Saturday everyone!

A lot of my friends know that my favorite store is Ross. It’s like a treasure hunt that requires some work but is so worth it when you find that one piece! On a recent visit to Ross I found an amazing Micheal Kors dress. Yes, you read correctly, Michael Kors! Here’s the best part….

$13.99 for a $99 dress! I know what your thinking, the dress is probably out of date and not that cute…

Check this baby out! This cute color block dress is all mine and I already have a few ideas of how I am going to style it. This is the perfect holiday dress paired with some stockings, boots, cute belt and a chunky necklace.

As always, these posts are encouragement for all of my readers to go check out your local discount stores. Sometimes they are hit or miss but those hits make up for all of the misses!

I’d love to hear about some of your greatest finds at discount stores in the comments below! 🙂

Ways To Help Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

My thoughts are with everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy. I want to share this wonderful post by Kellie with different ways for us to all help. Please check it out. We need to come together and help out as much as possible!

I received a call tonight from my sister who lives in NYC informing me that the babies in Staten Island are in need of baby formulas and diapers. As a first time mommy, it broke my heart and can’t ever imagine my Zoey not having clean diapers or enough to eat. I’m doing my part (to the best of my ability) to make sure that the babies receive whatever they need through this tough time and am just so grateful that I’m in a position to be able to help.

New York and its neighboring states are suffering from the devastation caused by hurricane Sandy. Please help in any way that you can, whether big or small will be greatly appreciated.

Ebay = Too much shopping!

Good evening everyone!

I have recently been browsing eBay a lot and finding some really cute items. One thing that has really caught my eye lately are large statement necklaces but they can get a little pricey. That’s where Ebay comes in! I recently ordered two beautiful necklaces and the first one came in yesterday. Can I tell you all how beautiful it is!

The seller has this necklace in 7 colors: green, apple green, yellow, pink, orange and black. As you can tell from the picture above, I purchased the yellow one and LOVE it! The color is great, it’s big but makes a great statement. I can totally see myself wearing this with a little black dress!

The one thing I will say is that the chain is way longer than it appears online but it’s really easy to hook on to another link. Also, it took two weeks to arrive which isn’t that bad!

Best part about this necklace… it was $6.99 with FREE shipping!

If you’re looking for some cute and inexpensive necklaces, check out eBay!

Let me know if any of you are big Ebay shopper and if you have any suggestions for me to try!
