So for the life of me I just cannot use a pencil or pen eyeliner to line my top eyelid. It doesn’t matter if it’s a felt tip, a this, that, or the other, it just doesn’t work. As a matter of fact, I can only use a pencil eyeliner on my lower waterline and it has to be a soft tip. As you can see, make-up is definitely not one of my strong points.
If you’ve noticed, sometimes I do rock a pretty killer cat eye (with the flick on the side) – and so I have been complimented (this is to let you know that this isn’t just my opinion) and I do this using a gel liner in the pot with a brush.
So, much like I tried a couple of different mascaras which you can read about here, I went in search of the best gel pot eyeliner.
The Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner is where it all began. It is a drug store brand, one of many that I have tried (but this was 7+ years ago which is why the others are not included in this review) and it was definitely the best of them all.

I realized the less blemishes to hide, the easier and less time consuming get ready would be – sort of like using photoshop to edit pictures.
All of that being said, my go to cosmetic item is mascara. I am a sucker for long, thick eyelashes. I have the length, however, I do not have the volume. So I have been on a multi year scavenger hunt for the mascara that does this for me. Note: all of my mascaras are always in the blackest of black in the waterproof formula that I can find in the specific line.
nspa reached out to me to have me use and review some products from their line a few weeks ago and I am thoroughly impressed. I received samples of the mango scent from the Fruit Extracts range and I can only yell good things about the line. Read More
A while ago I shared my daily make-up routine that included a full face – concealer, foundation, two types of eyeliner, mascara, and so on. You can see that here. I even got to the point of doing my eyebrows every single day.
A few months ago I went on a second date which was also a double date with the guy’s aunt and her boyfriend Read More
