New goodies-gel eyeliner/brushes/mascara

Hello Lovlies,

It has been a long time since I last blogged.. and I apologize. Sometimes things get too busy and you start to forget what is most important.

Anyways, I wanted to review three new items today.

The first being the TARTE Amazonian clay waterproof liner. I have never tried gel liners prior to this but definitely wanted to get on the bandwagon. My liquid liners weren't giving me the bold matte finish that I was looking. I bought this liner back in December, so I have been trying it out for the last three months. Now that I religiously use it, I am in love with the gel liner. It goes on smoothly, and it's very pigmented. I also love that it comes with a double-ended liner brush. It retails for $24, and can be found in Ulta, Sephora, and the Tarte website. So far, I am loving Tarte products, and have some more to review for you guys later. 

The next thing I want to review is the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Every time I go to Ulta this brush is sold out all the time. It is not sold in the kits, and comes as an individual brush. This brush comes from the line of one of the Pixiwoo sisters-Sam. I LOVE this brush. It is made of all synthetic Taklon bristles, which is amazing for sensitive skin. Also, buffing and stroking is made easier with this brush. I really think that the brush is of very good quality and feels very sturdy. I even went back to Ulta and bought myself a spare. As you can see, the bristles are densely packed. But when you wash the brush, surprisingly the bristles dry off extremely fast. This brush retails for $9. Go grab it at Ulta when they have a buy one get one %50 off. But, even at $9, this brush is very affordable and does a a better job at application that some of the high end brushes I have tried

Last but not last- The Origins GinZing Mascara! I was in the market for a new mascara and as soon as I heard that Origins was releasing a mascara I went to go pick it up. This has some coffee extract which is used to make lashes more voluminous. I am very happy with this mascara. I think that the head on the wand is a bit big, but I feel that his helps me to get more volume in my lashes. This mascara retails for $17.50. I also realized the tube is pretty big compared to some other mascaras of the same price range in the market. So check it out and see what you think!

Well that's it for today guys, but I will keep up with my blogging from now on!
