♥e.l.f. Nail Polish Remover Pads – As you can tell from my NOTD posts, I absolutely love nail polish. The thing I don’t love is removing it. I always find removing nail polish to be a frustrating, time-consuming, and messy process; so when I stumbled upon the e.l.f. Nail Polish Remover Pads, I was hoping for the best, but didn’t know what to expect. Needless to say, I have since bought eight more packs, because I am so obsessed with these.
Each pad is saturated with a citrus-scented nail polish remover, and you can use both sides, so it’s as if you’re getting double the quantity. Unlike standard nail polish remover, these are no drip, no mess, and typically get the job done with the use of two pads (10 fingers). These are also perfect for travel as they are not marked as a hazardous material the way a bottle of nail polish remover is, so you can bring them on airplanes – perfect for jet-setters! If you are as obsessed with nail polish as I am, these are an absolute must. $2.00 for a Pack of 20.
♥mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Iconic – The first eye shadow that I ever used was mark’s i-Glimmer Illuminating Eye Color in Bronzed which was, sadly, discontinued a few years ago. Luckily, I still have a small stash of it that I use all the time; but I’ve been looking for something else that I will be able to use once my supply is gone, which is how I came across mark’s Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Iconic. Iconic comes with a golden/bronze shadow, and a gold-flecked forest green liner. What I love about this product is that it’s gel-based, creamy, buildable, super-pigmented, and, even in 100*+ weather, it lasts and looks like it was just applied. I use a swipe of the gold shade for my lids, and I layer the green liner over my standard black eyeliner for added vibrancy (I have green eyes, and find that I love this combo). There are over five different color combos of this product available (including a smoky eye duo), so they are definitely worth checking out. $11.00 for 0.04 oz. net wt.
♥Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Nude Lustre, 040 – When I do my makeup my main focus is my eyes, so I always go for a nude lip. I don’t personally wear lipstick, because I don’t like how it feels on me, and I like the shine of gloss. That said, I picked up Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Nude Lustre, 040. While it has the shine of a gloss, I find that it has somewhat of a lipstick-y texture; however, not enough so that it bothers me – I actually really love this product. This is probably one of the most long-lasting lipglosses / lip colors I have ever used. I can put it on, and drink or eat, and the shine and subtle hint of rosy nude color lasts for hours without needing reapplication. Initially, I didn’t know if I really liked this product, so I put it aside for awhile, then tried it again earlier this month and fell in love with it. I find that my change of heart came from the addition of a lip balm. This product, like a lipstick, can be drying on your lips, so if you don’t use a lip balm underneath it, the wear is very uncomfortable. Layering it over a lip balm, however, makes it awesome. $6.99 for 0.2 fl oz.
