Samples received for testing are marked with an (*). All unmarked items were purchased by me. 

{Shadow Insurance Eye Primer from Too Faced, $20}

Shadow Insurance Eye Primer glides on easy, creating a smooth canvas  for shadow application.  Once shadow is applied, this primer locks pigments in place for crease-proof, fade-proof, waterproof wear for up to 24 hours. (Still a favorite from 2016!)


{Volumizing and Conditioning 2x Black Mascara from LashControl, $18}*

Volumizing and Conditioning 2X Black Mascara features a criss-cross brush to coats lashes in a pigment rich, no flake formula.  LashControl is known for their patented,  innovative delivery system that customizes the amount of mascara on the applicator – squeeze the colored flex wiper as you pull the brush out for the perfect amount each time.


{24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil from Urban Decay, $20}

24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils stay creamy and blendable for up to 30 seconds before drying down to a long-last, waterproof finish. Available in tropical, metallics and neutrals shades, these liners are infuses with jojoba oil, vitamin E and cottonseed oil. (Still a favorite from 2016!)


{Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette from Too Faced, $49}

With 18 beautiful shades that look amazing on so many skin tones, the Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette is probably the most wanted palette, ever. If you can get past the overwhelming peach scent – I do not dig the scent at all – this is a total must-have palette for any beauty lover.


{Eye Brows Pencil from M.A.C Cosmetics, $17}

Create a natural-looking brow with Eye Brows, a self-sharpening brow definer pencil. Use one of 10 shades to quickly add shape, definition and density to brows.


{Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover from Mary Kay, $15}

Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover is a dual-phase, oil-free formula that gentle removes eye makeup. It can also be uses to gently remove other makeup, like liquid lipsticks. (Still a favorite from 2016!)


{Full Exposure Mascara from Smashbox, $22}

Full Exposure Mascara utilizes an oversized tapered brush and fiber formula to create volume, lift and a high-shine, smudge-free finish. (Still a favorite from 2016!)


{Secret Brightening Under Eye Powder from Laura Mercier, $26}

The secret is out! Secret Brightening Under Eye Powder is a super light-weight translucent powder that can be used on all skin types and skin tones to set concealer and brighten, without settling into fine lines and wrinkles.


{Tattoo Liner from Kat Von D, $20}

Every brand is making felt-tip liners but, not all are the same. Tattoo Liner is a favorite because it creates highly pigmented, super fine to bold lines, is waterproof, and is long-lasting – with wear time of up to 24 hours.


{Love Sick Stack from Melt Cosmetics, $48}

The butter soft shadows in the Love Sick Stack can be used alone or mixed and matched with other shadows to create beautiful, dynamic eye looks. If you are interested in this stack, don’t wait. Melt Cosmetics shadow stacks are in super high demand. They sell out fast and like all indie brands, it can take a little time before the items you want are restocked…if they are restocked.

{Brow Fixx in Clear from Elke Con Freudenberg, $24}*

Brow Fixx in clear can be used to tame brows and lashes. The small brush and flake-free formula makes it easy to seal a brow look or add a soft sheen to lashes for a natural look.
