Tight Wallet Tuesday: Wet & Wild “Fergie” On Edge Creme Eyeliner

Out of all the topics I post on my blog Tight Wallet Tuesday is my absolute favorite topic! It’s been a little while since I’ve brought you guys one of these! But I’m truly happy that this is one of my comeback post!

This product makes you say MAC fluidline who?! No lies the consistency, the color pay off , the price, the staying power! This doesn’t even give Mac a run for their money it RAN Mac.

This mystery product is Wet and Wild’s “Fergie” creme liner “on the edge”. It comes in black – little black dress and a brown cocoa Riche!

So I figured I would buy the brown color because my dip down fluidline from MAC was completely dried out. I was $5 away from free shipping on drugstore.com and this was perfect $4.99!

So the jar looks pretty similar to the fluidline packaging shown above! It’s a nice rich brown and it glides on like you would not believe!

I promise you this product is long lasting, waterproof, smudge proof and it has a crease resistant finish so you can use it as a base for a bold smokey eye!

And to add to the amazingness it’s not tested on animals!

It’s a 0.10 oz but a little goes an extremely long way! And actually MAC fluidline is the exact same size
At $16! You can buy almost 4 of these for the price of one!

This product will leave you saying MAC fluidline who? $16 for what?

Go out and get it! You’ll love me for it!

MANIC MONDAY: Mary Kay Satin Lip Mask Review

It’s Monday again? These mondays have been coming and going extremely fast just like the months and these seasons! Not only is my skin confused and trying to adjust with the constant change of warm, and then freezing but so are my lips!

I feel like most of us neglect our lips when it comes to exfoliation! Okay some of us are great and do it once a week! But honestly a lot of us do not. We usually just apply our lipstick, lipgloss and chapstick and call it a day!

Matte lipsticks are in and they look best with a nice exfoliated lip! No one likes the peeling lip look with your amazing red Ruby woo from MAC or your intense pink matte lipstick from NARS in Funny Face! Face it it’s not cute.

Today’s review is on Mary Kay Satin Lips Mask! One of the best exfoliators I have come across for the lips besides Fresh Brown Sugar. I love it because it is gentle on the lips, and it only has to stay on the  for 2 minutes, not time consuming at all! Literally put this on before hopping in the shower and wash it off once you get in.

Because lips do not have sebaceous glands they tend to dry out more quickly than the rest of the body and also can age quicker. So with exfoliation we are sloughing off the dead skin cells and preventing aging at the same time! It is said that the lips age more quickly because of the thin skin on the lips. So we must exfoliate and assist with slowing down that aging process! Which is why the satin lip  mask is perfect!

The Satin lip mask contains tiny beads that gently exfoliate the skin on the lips and bring life back to the lips so they are no longer dull looking.

Some of the key ingredients in this product are:

Ascorbyl Palmitate ( Vitamin C Derivative): antioxidant. help to fight free radicals.

Retinyl Palmitate ( Vitamin A Derivative:) conditioner that improves appearance of skin.

Image

So Mary Kay sells this as a set for $18.00 including the Satin Lip Lip Mask and the Satin Lip Balm. It can also be purchased separately at $9.50 each which is still a really good price point. Honestly you see best results when using both the lip mask and lip balm together.

Below is a photo of my lips with the mask on.

How to use:

Gently apply to lips

Leave on 1-2 minutes and remove.

Apply satin lip balm

Image

I will be honest I do not use this once a week as I should, but I do try to make sure to do it once every 2 weeks ! And for sure I use it before wearing a matte or long-wearing lipstick. If you were in a search for a good lip exfoliator contact your local mary kay beauty advisor or purchase it online! http://www.marykay.com

Just another Manic Monday mask review.

Back again today with another Tight Wallet Tuesday post! I was going to save it until next week but I realized the promotion ends this Saturday April 20, 2013 at Ulta and on http://www.ulta.com and I know a lot of you out there have been dying to try these brushes just as I have! As a professional makeup artist I have tons and tons of brushes ranging from MAC brushes, bdellium, kevyn Aucoin, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel etc. But lately, I’ve seen so many reviews on these Real Technique brushes and knowing that Samantha Chapman aka Pixiwoo on Youtube created these i’m sure they will live up to the hype! And of course me the Over consumer had to go out and get them! The only reason I got them today is because Ulta is having a really really good promotion on these already reasonable brushes! The promotion is currently buy one get one 50% off. The real techniques sets are retailed at $17.99 each. But with the 50% off you get the second set for $9.00.

I purchased both sets which include the Travel Essentials Kit and the Your Eyes/Enhanced Starter Set.

The Travel Essentials Kit includes your Essential Foundation Brush, Multi-task brush, and Domed shadow brush.
