Sephora Haul: Eyebrows + Contouring Products!

Hello everyone! I went to a Sephora last Friday and realized that I hadn’t been in one for over two months. I was going crazy over all the new products and literally spent over an hour and a half testing out new products and looking at everything. I decided to jump on the eyebrows and contouring trends and can’t wait to use these products throughout the summer. Here’s what I bought (going clockwise):

REVIEW: Sephora’s Draw The Line Eyeliner Set!

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to tell you about a set that I just had to have when I saw it in Sephora. It is the Draw The Line eyeliner set and retails for $30. For that price you get seven different, high-end eyeliners which is an awesome deal in my opinion!

This set contains:
– Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12 HR Wear in Black Lace
– stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Dark Brown
– Kat Von D Deluxe Tattoo liner in Trooper (black)
– Nars Cosmetics Via Veneto Larger Than Life™ Long Wear Eyeliner (black)
– Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner in Blacquer
– Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Double Ended Eye Pencil in Perversion and Rockstar

Since every product has an expiration date, I decided to try only two eyeliners at a time. Once I finish the two, I will try another two eyeliners. Here is what I think of the ones I tried!

Nars Cosmetics Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner– This is my new favorite automatic eyeliner. It literally NEVER smears. I have been wearing it everyday on my bottom waterline & it is such a relief to never have to worry about if the color is smudging under my eye. I have put this on my eyelid as well and the color never transfers to the crease in my eye so I love that. I will have to buy the full size of this when my mini one runs out.

Kat Von D Deluxe Tattoo liner in Trooper (black)– I have already mentioned to you guys several times about how much I absolutely adore this product. I am literally using it everyday. To see the full review I wrote about this product, click here

I cannot wait to try the other eyeliners in this set since I loved the first two so much. I literally have been using them everyday and creating a slight-winged look like the picture on the right.

Stay posted for my review on the rest of the eyeliners! Have a fantastic week and let me know what your current eyeliner favorites are!

Products to Remove Glitter Nail Polish!

Hello! So one problem I was having this week was that I could not get my glitter nail polish off. If you’re like me, sometimes you avoid putting on glitter nail polish because you know it’s a hassle to get off.  I was doing some research and here are the top three products for getting off that stubborn glitter.

Left: Formula X’s DELETE Nail Polish Remover- $10.50- This is supposed to effectively get off every type of nail polish. This is a pump so you would need a cotton ball or pad to apply it. It is made without parabens and also received a 5 star review from Sephora.

Middle: Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover For Glitter- $9.50- This also received a 5 star review from Sephora and is made without parabens. This is a remover where you take off the top and stick your finger into the sponge in the container. For really tough nail polish, you can use the additional scrubbing sponge it comes with to wipe off the color.

Right: OPI Natural Nail Base Coat- $8.50- Alright now brace yourself for this product. This is a base coat that you apply under your glitter nail polish, and when its time to remove it all, you just peel it off. I have seen pictures of this and it really did work! This product, I believe, isn’t sold on OPI’s website anymore but you can still get it on Amazon.

Hope this post was helpful! Dust off that glitter nail polish and make your nails shine!
