Mini Nail Polish Haul!

So, I picked up a couple nail polishes last night at Target!
When I only went to buy deodorant, cotton balls, &nail polish remover! -.- 
Lol, I know. I have a problem....Anywaaaay! haha
Here they are...

Sinful Colors-Cream Pink $1.99
3 Coats/No topcoat added
Not sheer, but not super thick.
Color becomes truer by the 3rd coat.

Milani-Diamond Dazzle $3.99
3 coats/No topcoat added
Very sheer, yet noticeable.
I would use this on top of nail polishes to give a glitzy effect.

Milani-Gems $3.99
3 coats/No topcoat added
Chunky glitter, yet lays nicely.
Also would use this on top of a nail polish for a confetti effect.

Wet&Wild (Wild Shine) - Metallica $1.49
3 Coats/No topcoat added
True to its color. It represents its name well.

Wet&Wild (Wild Shine) - Night Prowl $1.49
3 Coats/No topcoat added
 Super sheer. 
But, once you add 3 coats, it's gorgeous!
&I these are my Nails Of The Week!
I used Cotton Candy by Sation as my base,
&Milani's Diamond Dazzle on top!
The pink dots are Sinful Colors-Cream Pink
Hope you enjoyed!
Until next time...

Lets Talk Eyeliner!

I've been on a hunt for the perfect eyeliner...
&As a makeup artist, I've searched..&searched...&searched -_-

I have tried A LOT of diff. brands...cheap &expensive.
At last, my search has come to an end!!!

For $3dollars, E.L.F.'s Cream Eyeliner lines perfectly!
It is as black as black should be!
(I usually apply this after my eyeshadow application, 
and before applying lashes/as a base for my eyeshadows)

Can you guess which swatch belongs to what eyeliner?
TOP: Urban Decay: 24/7 Glide-on eye pencil (zero) $18
BOTTOM: Milani LIQUIF’EYE Metallic Eyeliner Pencil (Black) $6.49
The left is the Urban Decay &The Right is Milani!
Yes, the darker one IS cheaper!
(I use this to rim my eyes/smudge under my eyes) 

Lesson of today: Expensive products aren't ALWAYS better!
Hope this was helpful! 
Until next time!
