Drugstore Gem - Maybelline EyeStudio Gel Liner

I have been a LONG time fan of the Wet n Wild gel liner. LONG TIME!! I've never had any issues with it, until a few months ago it started smudging and and disappearing. My heart was broken!! How dare Wet n Wild do that to me? I LOVED you!!

I had to begin the hunt for a new drugstore gel liner love. Enter - Maybelline Eye Studio!!

The color is PIGMENTED. This liner lasts all day, even with watery eyes due to a cold. It comes with a brush that I really like, it allows me to make a thin or thick line. 
The bonus - it's from the drugstore!! I paid about $7 for this!!

This is one pass of the liner. I'm not that great at putting on eyeliner (I will get there!!! More YouTube tutorials please!), but I think you can see that the color is pretty pigmented and the brush allowed me to make a decent wing. If you press a little harder, use more product the color can be much darker like the swatches above.

Tell me what's your favorite drugstore gel liner!! I MUST know.

Oh and please feel free to share any YouTube eyeliner tutorials with me. ;)

Suave - Frizz Free Hair

 Disclaimer: I did receive these products for free. Free products do not influence my opinions. My review is 100% truthful

While I don't mind spending a lot of money on a good makeup item, the idea of doing the same on hair care just makes me cringe. I don't know why, but I just can't justify it. I've been lucky to find so many haircare gems at the drugstore, and often they are by Suave. 

My number one hair concern is frizz. When I wear my hair straight keeping the frizz at bay isn't too difficult, I apply a smoothing serum and blow dry it. As long as it doesn't rain I'm ok. Ever since my daughter was born I really don't have the time to wear it straight, so I'm usually wearing my hair wavy. Problems!! My hair always looks good for the first day, but as I sleep on it..hello frizz!! 

Thankfully Suave has two products that have helped me solve that problem.

Light Weight Weather Proof Cream ($5.00) - Great for smoothing the top part of my hair, without weighing it down or making it look greasy.
Soft & Defined Gel Serum ($5.00) - Smooths the frizz that pops up at night and redefines some of the waves I lost in my sleep without making my hair feel crunchy.
This is day 2 hair. 

I know that those with wavy/curly hair tend to go through a lot of product, but I rarely do. Not only are these Suave items a bargain, but they also last a really long time since you only need a little bit of product to get great results. 

Suave - Will you please bring back the deep conditioner I used to love..? It was really popular in the 90's and my hair loved it. Thanks!!

Are you a Suave fan?

Thankful Tuesday

It's been almost a week now that Kaley is sick. I have been coughed on, sneezed on, and puked on. I HATE seeing my little girl not feeling well. Where am I going with this..? 

I am thankful that I can stay home with my little girl. I know that not many parents have that option, but I'm thankful that I do. I'm thankful that I'm the one who wipes her boogers and gets her drooly kisses as a thank you. 

Now can someone please send one of these contraptions my way... I'm getting sick!! 
*waves goodbye as she drops onto the couch*
