Maybelline Great Lash: Lots of Lashes Mascara (or "LoL") in Blackest Black, L.A. Colors 3 Eyeshadow in Sand Dune, L'oreal Extra Intense Eyeliner in Carbon Black, ULTA smudge brush, Essence Gel Eyeliner Brush.
This is what the brush looks like on this mascara. I bought this because Maybelline's Facebook page was offerring a $1 off coupon, and it was only $4.24 (or something) at Wal-Mart without the coupon so I said "What the heck?" I LOVE it. I normally don't care for Great Lash mascara, they tend to have small brushes (except for the big version they came out with however many years ago). But it's great, and that's saying something because my #1 makeup must-have is mascara. If my eyelashes look like crap, it ruins my day.
This is a close up of the eyeshadows. These were a surprise buy. I got them at the Dollar Store for..well..a dollar. I love these also, and I'm not saying they're great for the price, I'm saying they're awesome even if they cost a lot of money. They go on so smooth with a lot of pigment. I don't use the light blue, but I like to combine the brown and blueish-gray color and it is GORGEOUS.
The eyeliner is awesome. It is called Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner, and that's exactly how I would describe it: a pencil that goes on like liquid. It is so smooth with no drag, and EXTRA INTENSE. This also has a smudger on the end, which also works well with this eyeliner. It is kinda expensive, but what the heck..it works good. It also comes in brown and probably purple. I don't know about other colors.
These brushes are good, nothing to say really about them..I looked everywhere for an eyeliner brush like this, so when I finally found one that was only like $1.49 at ULTA (from Essence!) I was sold. My previous eyeliner brush was getting old (and the handle broke off so it was hard to use) so I was very critical about what brush I would buy. But this one is great...and cheap.
This is the best EVER ( well..for me). It was only $1 (who doesn't love cheap that works??). ELF Eyelid Primer in Sheer. It is seriously the best I've ever used. You can get it at their website or Target.

THE LIP STAIN
Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Gothic. They have some of the best lip stains because they come with a balm. A lot of people don't like stains because they make lips dry, but this solves that problem. Cover Girl also has some good stains, but they dont come with a balm. Bourjois also has good ones, but I no longer have access to them since Sephora stopped carrying them!
These were ones that were new to me..a lot of them are really old, but I had never used them. Here they are! (also will be swatching these in later posts).
