The Shih Tzu watched the Skyline with Denise

This is the toned-down version of yesterday’s look. I’ve really been loving the Buxom Stay-There eyeshadows lately! They stay on so well all day long, and I just love the smooth texture. I know they get mixed reviews, but my only complaint is that they don’t come with more product in the pot (or cost less for what product we do get).

I also used a new product today – I decided to give the Ulta brand Extreme Wear gel liners a shot. I got some gift cards for my birthday and thought that was a perfect time to try out some new products. I have the Buxom lashliner, which is great, though this is also a product that gets mixed reviews. I find the Buxom lashliner to stay put all day long and find it fairly easy to apply. However, it costs $16 for a tiny pot of it, and I got the Ulta gel liner on sale for only $4 for 50% more product and the same staying power.

On an unrelated note, I keep getting distracted by how my eyes look crossed in the above picture! Must be I was holding the camera too close. Maybe you didn’t notice before, but I bet you do now!

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
