Greetings from the Dark Side~
Like many of you, I am always on the search for the best eyeliners, especially eyeliners to wear on my waterline. I've found a few really great eyeliners in my search and I want to share my Top 5 favorite eyeliners for the waterline! Keep reading for more information!
*In order from Left to Right:
1. Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner in 'Deepest Black'
This is the most recent find, and by far one of the best drugstore finds. The Prestige eyeliner is really affordable, but it does not lack in quality. It is an intense semi-glossy black that dries to a satin finish. This is particularly great for a smokey, smudged look~ You can of course use this on your upper lash line for a smokey look!
2. Milani Liquif'Eye Eyeliner in 'Black'
This Milani one is very similar to the Prestige eyeliner. This is also an intense semi-glossy black. I find that this one smudges a little more than the Prestige one though, so I prefer the Prestige one because it lasts longer on my waterline.
3. Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Eyeliner in 'Perversion'
If you have trouble finding a black that stays on your waterline, you might want to try this super matte black. I personally prefer this particular eyeliner for neutral or classier looks. It is still really dark, but it is not as smudgy and rocked out like the Milani and Prestige ones. This one is a bit pricier, but definitely worth the price. If you are not willing to shell out the money for this one, definitely try out the Prestige or Milani eyeliners.
4. Rimmel ScandalEyes in 'Sparkling Black'
When a plain black eyeliner gets too boring for you, try this sparkly black eyeliner. It is a pigmented black loaded with silver sparkles. It looks insanely awesome on the lower lash line/waterline and the upper lash line. It stays surprisingly well on my eyes too! Such a great drugstore find!
5. Rimmel ScandalEyes in 'Nude'
The nude eyeliner is one of my recent beauty favorites. This Rimmel one is a cheaper alternative to the higher end nude eyeliners. I have to say that for $5, this nude eyeliner is freaking amazing. It is quite pigmented and long lasting. It looks so great for a wide-eye, natural look! Yet another amazing drugstore product! I used the eyeliner in THIS look.
There are so many more great eyeliners, but these are the standout in my makeup collection. If you have any recommendations for great eyeliners, let me know ^_^ I always love trying out new products!

Greetings from the Dark Side~
Revlon's summer collection, the Pacific Coast collection by Gucci Wetsman, included four new shades of the Lip Butters. This was exciting for me personally because I am crazy about Lip Butters. Most of the them and extremely wonderful: they are pigmented, moisturizing, and easy to touch up. I purchased two colors from that collection: Juicy Papaya and Wild Watermelon. These are supposed to be included in the permanent range, so if you missed out don't fret just yet!

Greetings from the Dark Side~! Today is a super lazy day, and I am not even wearing any eye makeup. During the busiest days of the week, I opt for wearing a bit of concealer or BB cream along with a bright lip color. On those days I usually wear my glasses and/or sun glasses to hide the fact that I am wearing zero eye makeup xD The best lip color for me during these days are very bright and moisturizing lip colors, such as the Revlon Lip Butters. Today, I used 'Wild Watermelon', and it is such as gorgeous lip color. It is redder in person than in the photo, but it still is very juicy and pink! Review for this Lip Butter coming soon :D
What do you think of 'Wild Watermelon'? Do you like the color?

After completing the 15 weeks of the a low-buy, I am happy to report that I have actually been sticking to a low-buy. I have not purchased anything after buying the four L'oreal Infallible eyeshadows and a few new RBL polishes. I have been really stressed out these past few days though, so I gave myself a small break and went to Walgreens to do some hauling. I bought a few things from Revlon because there was a BOGO sale going on~ Woot! Sales are awesome :D
I love, love, love Revlon products, especially Lip Butters. I managed to score all three of the Baby Sticks ('Pink Passion', 'Sunset', and 'Tahitian') and two of the Lip Butters ('Juicy Papaya' and 'Wild Watermelon').

Greetings from the Dark Side :D
I recently just finished my Diablo 3 Series so I wanted to show all the looks in one post :D I really enjoyed doing this! It was so much fun!! It was also fun compiling all the looks together and seeing them all on the same page. Seeing them has made me see how my skills have either improved or stayed the same in the past year. Take a look for yourself. Here are the five Diblo III classes and the one support class:
