Product I LOVE: Stila Smudgesticks

About 3 months ago, I got a job as an Education Artist for Stila Cosmetics. Honestly, at the time Stila was a brand I had heard of but never really tried. Since then I have gotten to work hands on with many Stila products and let me tell you this is an awesome brand. It makes me kind of sad I had never tried it before.

One of my favorites are the Smudgesticks, they just came out at the beginning of May. These are waterproof eyeliners that do NOT come off. They are truly the best eyeliners I have ever seen. They come in a variety of colors. A few of my favorites are Purple Tang (gorgeous purple), Lionfish (shimmery brown), and Stingray (dark black). You have about a minute of smudge time with these and then they are set and not coming off without eye makeup remover. These are absolutely perfect for Oklahoma summers when the heat and humidity can cause your eye makeup to run or weddings where the tears can flow. They are $20 a piece and are definitely worth the price. Don't just take my word for it though go to Sephora or Ulta and check them out for yourself. I know you will not be disappointed.

Product I Love: Smashbox Limitless Long Wearing Lip Gloss

As someone who is a lip gloss junkie it takes a lot for a lip gloss to impress me. However, I found a product that blows every other gloss I have tried out of the water. Smashbox's new Limitless lip gloss is amazing. This product advertises that it will stay on for 6 hours, not 100 percent sure that it will last that long. However, it does stay on better than any gloss I have ever tried. It even lasted through eating! The other thing I love about this product is that it doesn't feel sticky. Which is definitely a big plus in the world of lip gloss. The color I have is Forever, it is the perfect shade of pink. It looks natural but yet has a little pop of color. There are also 5 other colors to choose from. You can purchase this product at Sephora or ULTA. I probably have 10 lip glosses in my purse and this is the one I am constantly grabbing. Try it, I know you will not be disappointed.
