I've been out of the beauty community for too long now, and it's time for me to come back. After looking at Emilynoel83 videos yesterday, I got inspired to do a mini series of favorites of 2012. She called her mini-series the Emily Awards.... I'm going to call mine Sab Fab Fav.
To start the series, I'm going to talk about eyes. I divided my "awards" as Emily calls hers into the same or quite similar categories as her which are drug store and high end.
e.l.f. Eyelid primer
It costs one dollar from the website, or from Target if you live in the U.S. It makes eye shadow last longer on without creasing . It doesn't improve the color payoff that much, but it's better than in their own.
Urban Decay Primer Potion
It makes my eye shadow last all day without creasing plus you get amazing color payoff.
Maybelline Color Tattoo! There are simply the best out there. Everybody knows that it's not good to keep your makeup for too long on your face for obvious reasons, but these bad boys can last for 24 hours and even more. I enjoy the fact that there is good variety of texture within the collection; there is some matte, shimmery, and glittery colors. The color selection is awesome!
Small Eye Shadow palette.
And the winner is.... Wet'n'Wild!!! I mean OMG these are the bomb! They are super duper pigmented and smooth. The quality of these are simply superb. They are high end quality. I would totally pay more for them. Here is the 8-pan palette, but they also have the 3 pan palettes.
Eye Shadow palette
High end: Urban Decay Naked and Naked 2
I know that this seems pretty obvious and a safe choice, but what can I say; I love them. They are versatile. You can do a day time look as well as a dark sultry smokey look. The quality of these shadow are simply great. All of them are super pigmented, smooth, and creamy with a flawless application. Most of the shade don't have huge fallout.
Drugstore L'Oréal lineur intense. This creates the perfect darkest black cat eye. It can create a very thin to thick line effortlessly.
One of my other favorite is this eyeliner pen by Revlon It's called Revlon Color Stay Liquid Eye Pen. It's not the darkest black that is out there, but it's so easy to work with. When you are on the go, you need something quick and effective. It last a long time.
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama gel eyeliner in blackest black.
I really enjoy this eyeliner. This is nowhere new, but I don't hear that much about it. It simply great. I had mine for a very long time now, and I should probably throw it away. I feel bad about throwing it away because it's like new. It hasn't tried out at all. It doesn't budge once it dries.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil
Talk about a liner that doesn't go anywhere. I usually don't really like eyeliner in that form because it's really hard to find one that's long lasting. You can easily smudge them, but once they set they are really hard to rub off. They do last a long time on the waterline. The best thing about them is the variety of colors they come in; 24 in the regular collection without talking about the limited edition ones.
L'Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes
I've tried many mascara from l'Oréal, and it's by far my favorite brand. I really enjoy this one because it gives me a lot of volume with length. I haven't tried all of the Voluminous collection tho. I really enjoy the Volum Express by Maybelline, but I prefer the L'Oréal Voluminous.
That's about it for what's concerning the eyes. The next post will be about face and lips.
Hope you enjoyed this post :)
