Beauty Crown Wk4: Eyes & Misc Faves

The Beauty Crown Awards are a yearly favorites collaborative effort including beauty bloggers around the globe.  The Beauty Crown Awards were created by Lily from Beauty with Lily Liz from My Pretty Obsessions, Jackie from Five Two Certified, and Shalunya from Shalunya & Boyet. We felt that a collaborative effort from a large number of beauty bloggers would be much more interesting to our readers and would garner more attention. The Beauty Crown Awards are a 5 week event with each week covering types of products.

Week 4 - Eye & Misc Products - Dec 23 - Dec 29, 2013

Week 5 - Facial Care Products & Tools - Dec 30 - Jan 4, 2014

Week 4 of the Beauty Crown Awards covers Eye & Misc Products. Below are my Week 4 selections:


I recently just started using different eye primers that I am liking but for my all-time 2013 primer fave, I really don't have one! The best primer I've used before I started using Urban Decay, TooFaced or the Lorac eye primers were my Cream Shadow winners down below!

Pressed Shadows
theBalm eye shadows 
great pigmentation that are talc-free, paraben free and cruelty free 

I am really not a fan of using pigments as this takes time and is messy to use so I don't have a favorite.

Pixi Lash Booster Mascara
I know a lot of you who received this in their Ipsy bags did not like it but I love how this separates my lashes; holds the curl and lasted while I sweat off from doing some Zumba! I would repurchase this if I ever run out of mascaras.

I have used both of these products on most of my FOTD posts
Mally Beauty Waterproof eyeliner in GunMetal (pencil)
I feel like the black eyeliner is so harsh looking and too heavy looking, so I always use this nice "slate grey" pencil in my lower waterline just to define my eyes when I am doing a smokey eye look.
Jordana Fabu-liner (liquid liner)
I love this because it's cheap and it lasts a while! With it's nice fine felt tip my wings are always looking "almost perfect" (I can never perfect it as those MUA eye pics on Pinterest are!) and I am done with my eyes in less than 2 minutes (each eye!)!!!

Cream Shadows
Maybelline Color Tattoos
Please excuse the other items in the picture, I just grabbed this picture from an old post of mine from this year, but these were my most used cream shadows this year. If I couldn't think of a look I would just grab "Bad to the Bronze" and be done! 

theBalm Nude 'Tude Palette
My very first eye shadow palette I ever bought and even after my palette kits have grown, I still go back to this because it has all the neutral shadows I need for an everyday eye look or for a simple smokey eye!

Brow Kit
Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil
I am still playing around on what products works for my brows and I am in the middle of using a lot of different brow products but for most of the year, when my brows just need a bit filling I grab for this pencil and I am done!


Beauty Magazine
Allure Magazines
I have been subscribed to this magazine the longest because I love their beauty tips and picks; the affordable fashion and beauty product finds and the articles aren't 10 pages long!

Beauty Subscription
Ipsy Glambags
This is the only beauty subscription that I was subscribed to the longest and that means a lot as I have subbed and tried others and got bored with it fast! I unfortunately unsubscribed a few months ago because I want to try more others and my makeup collection is big enough right now. 
Check out the Subscription Box Reviews on top of this site to check out all my Ipsy bag reviews!
My very first Ipsy bag! October2012

Beauty Product from Subscription
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil
I am a big fan of Josie Maran ever since I received a sample size of this argan oil from one of my Ipsy bags. I have done a review, HERE! of a kit I bought from QVC.
