I'l admit it.. I've always been a bit of a drug store snob. OR should I say I WAS.. Last year I had a photographer use Superstay on me in KEEP UP THE FLAME. She swore it was the most perfect red and promised it me that it would not budge! I love my reds but I fight with them feathering and smearing all over my face. UNTIL NOW!!! I love this color and formula so much I new have it in SIX different shades. It lasts me through 14 hour nursing shifts, nights on the town, or an extended make out session without even a tiny smudge! The color is the PERFECT RED. You can hold off on the clear gloss included for a moist matte red or add a gloss that sparkles across the room. I have tried EVERY long wear red from target to Nieman Marcus, $15 to $50, and had every shade smudged on my arm from hand to elbow looking for the perfect color. Nothing compares to Keep Up the Flame. Sure I could use a primer, filler, translucent powder to set, and touch up any other lipstick all day but who has time for that. Best part is, IT'S UNDER $8 !! My worst fear is that they will stop making it! Do yourself a favor and JUST TRY IT. I promise you'll thank me later!
I am absolutely in love with this pallet! I have many many many eyeshadows and pallets in my collection and just have not been able to find something that I use for my daily go to. I often find something but get bored often and am alwats searching for something more. I have everything from a drugstore finds, MAC, Chanel, you name it. I hate shadows that you have to have a base or build up to get the color to deposit. I dont have time! I even had a sparkle shadow pallet from Lorac before and wasn't crazy about it. But this pallet has me hooked! The shadows are soft, highly pigmented and blend or build perfectly. It's almost effortless! I have even been getting more compliments on my eyes lately. I have only had it a month and have hit the bottom of the pan on several almost all of them except the darkest colors. I will be buying another, which has never happened! and i will be buying their other pallets now too!
I have been on a long search for a perfect liquid/ gel eyeliner. I have tried MANY MANY brands and most just fall short for me. Either they are dry and pull or they smudge off and don't last. I wanted a liner that went on BLACK in one swipe and stayed ALL DAY! IF you can tell by now I HATE to fuss over makeup after I have it on and simply don't have time running between patients or on long motorcycle trips to check my wings! I found my dream eye liner here. Not only does she go on soft and easily without dragging or having to make several passes to get a dark enough line, IT DOES NOT MOOOOVE!! Seriously, you have to use eye makeup remover to take it off... ok so don't tell anyone but I'f fallen asleep in it before and woken up to perfect eyeliner still on!! I love the little expandable brush, it is the perfect shape to make a thin or thick line depending on your preference and when you're done it goes right back in itself so you don't end up with makeup all over your bag.
