I was super stoked to try out these new bareMinerals Lasting Line™ Long-Wearing Eye Liners. I've long been looking for pencil liners that create really pigmented, crisp lines just like liquid liners. I also love pencil liners that don't tug on the lids and glide like butter even on shimmery eye shadows.
The new bareMinerals Lasting Line™ Long-Wearing Eye Liners have the crisp lines and pigmented colors that I've been looking for in a pencil liner. Below are my swatches and review of these new pencil liners.

OPI Summer 2014 Neons
OPI Neons 2014

Summer is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the season that to wear the brightest, most retina-searing nail colors?  OPI Neons 2014 is a collection of six bright, festive shades that are best worn under a white base.  Some people scoff at using a white base for neons, saying that these are not "true" neon polishes.  I beg to disagree- these are indeed true neon polishes.  You do have a choice of whether you want a white base so you only need one or two coats of the polish, or to forgo the white base but use 4 coats of the polish for it to fully show up on the nail.  The white base just makes the neon color pop.  It's no big deal and not an arduous task, really.

Here are my swatches of the OPI Neons 2014, and my thoughts on these.

Pixi Beauty Natural Brow Duo: angled waterproof pencil and brow gel



Wearing Pixi Natural Brow Duo

I'd always considered my brows the most challenging thing to fix in the morning. They are unruly and the hairs are sparse, forcing me to fill in the sparse areas with a brow gel, powder or even a brow mousse. My problem with some of the brow powders is that they are not too pigmented, creating bald spots on my brows. Some brow pencils are too waxy that they just muddle the color of my brows and make them look wonky.
I was able to try the Pixi Beauty Natural Brow Duo, and it is one of my favorite brow products to slap on my brows for a quick fix in the morning. It is dual-ended with an angled waterproof brow pencil on one side, and a brow gel on the other side with a built in spoolie. The angled brow pencil is heaven-sent. The angled tip is just perfect to outline crisp lines around my brows, and I can use the other end to lightly fill in my brows. I love the shade - a cool dark brown that is neither too light nor too dark. I also love that it is waterproof for those summer days by the pool, or during hot, humid days.
The brow gel is perfect to set your eye brows and groom the hairs in place. I know that my brow product would not budge even during a long hot day outdoors.
I am really liking this product and it's one of my favorite makeup products from Pixi Beauty. It is also reasonably priced and are available at Target.
