OMG OMG! Hands down one of the BEST #NSale purchases I've ever made. Seriously, if it's still available, run out and get it! These two are some of the best beauty products I've ever used. Must have! Get it now! Run for it!
I have been using Stila's Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner for years. I have only cheated once with Kat Von D's liner when Sephora sold out of my usual gem. I can't gush enough about it. I love it!! Here's the deal. I am always in a rush and running late. Living in NYC means that I am fully involved in the hustle and bustle. When I wake up in the morning and get ready for work, I am absolutely never on time and never have a moment to spare. I need my makeup to be easy to use, fast, and effective. I also need it to last all day because I don't have time for touch ups and I work 16 hour days. You'll get all of this from Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner.
Here's my morning eye makeup routine. I apply this eye shadow primer with either my fingers or brush. Then I set it with a powder. Honestly, I use whatever powder I'm favoring at the moment. It can be Laura Mercier's Translucent Powder or Bare Minerals loose powder or my fave L'Oreal pressed powder. Seriously, just any powder and use this brush for application. Once you prime and set, apply your eye shadow (or shadows) of choice and then you are ready to apply your eye liner. Let me just say, I never leave the house without liner. It's more important to me than foundation. It completely changes my looks. Stila's eye liner is easy to apply because it's shaped like a pen. Just give it a quick shake and it's good to go. It has a super fine felt tip and the color is so pigmented that you just need to swipe once or twice and you're set. I just have to sweep the tip over my eye lids once and the results are perfect. I use the color intense black.
The eye liner creates a thin elegant look and of course you can expand from there to a achieve the look you want. Legit, this eyeliner doesn't transfer to my upper lid and it lasts all day! It survives my barre, twerking, and zumba classes! I remove it with my Estee Lauder eye makeup remover and I'm set. If you love eye liners and are concerned about product transfers or staying power, I would definitely give this baby a go.
Now this is totally something I wasn't ready for! I had nooo idea I was going to fall so madly in love with this lipstick. It wasn't love at first sight, it was a slow low. lol. So with the #NSale, I bought my liner for my usual price of $20 and they threw in the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick for free. This brand is a smart one because even though it was free this first round....I am now madly in love with it and will 100% repurchase. Wanna know more? Good because I want to spill the beans.
I received the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina with my duo set. It's a beautiful nude pink shade. It's perfect for the classy, understated, but you are 100% the boss look. This dusty rose is 100% full coverage! It goes on the lip a little too liquid and watery I thought. I have never used a lipstick like this before so I wasn't a fan of the texture at first. I thought, this thing is so watery and it's going to be running down my lips and face. Ummm so not the case. This creamy matte lipstick is super pigmented and the color is very intense. Seriously, a little bit goes a long way and you only need to sweep across your lips once. Not need to keep going over and over. It feels very light on your lips and it dries very matte.It's not sticky and you don't have to worry about your hair sticking to your lips. Since I am not a fan of a matte look, I apply a nice nude gloss over it and the overall look is perfect. At the moment, I am using this by Bare Minerals for my second layer. May I just say...the color lasts for HOURS!! I drank my vanilla soy latte, eat my oatmeal, had a snack, drank water, and the lipstick was still on my lips!! I just had to apply the tiniest amount of BM gloss over it and I was 100% good as new. I have never seen a lipstick last this long. My only con is the smell...kinda reminds me of clay or something. I am missing the mango scent of YSL lipsticks. That's my only negative! This is the best $20 I've ever spent.
