Femme Fetch: Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara
Thanks to a care package from Planet Beauty. com, I got to try out the Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara. I honestly would have never tried this mascara otherwise, but I was pleasantly suprised. I am a sucker for packaging and glamourous advertising which Bare Escentuals isn’t necessarily known for. But all that matters at the end of the day is the results and this mascara delivers. This is an ideal mascara for defined and separated lashes. Can be worn for a natural everyday look best, but drama can be achieved with a few extra coats.  Femme Fetch: Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara

Winks by Georgie Beauty
I recently got some amazing lashes from the beauty company, Georgie Beauty. I normally wear standard cheap lashes from the local drug or beauty supply stores, but I think I may have been converted with these. 
Winks by Georgie Beauty Lashes are:
Eco-friendly, PETA Approved, vegan certified and dermatologist tested
hand made and can be worn multiple times
USDA certified organic blue chamomile to help soothe delicate skin
non- irritating lash adhesive
The lash adhesive really feels great and is not as frustrating to remove at the end of the day. I love the femme-tastic selection of lashes. You can get a soft, day time look or go for full out drag. While these lashes may be a bit pricier, I really think they are well worth it. 
http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/winks-by-georgie
Check the link and order a pair for yourself (also sold at Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom), I suggest the No. 4 La Vie Charme or the No. 3 La Starlette lashes. I say go big or go home. 
So Femme!!!!
( I will be doing a video tutorial for lash application with the Winks Lashes in the next week, so stay tuned.) Winks by Georgie Beauty

Loving this video from Makeup Forever on how to fix your eyeliner without removing your makeup and starting all over. 

Femme Fetch: Push Eyeliner Brush
I am convinced that everyone needs a push eyeliner brush in their collection. The reason I am so adamant about the possesion of this brush by all femme divas is because of the possibilities it opens up for your makeup. I love being able to use my favorite shadow pigments in more precise and detailed ways. 
Great for gel/ cream liner application
Use with powder to set cream/ gel liners on eyes
Push your favorite eye shadow into the eyes as an eyeliner 
Use to line lips with precision 
One of the most amazing things about a push eyeliner brush is that there is no real need for the most expensive hairs or fibers to make it work well. You can pick up a push eyeliner brush from most makeup lines or an arts & crafts store. 
I favor more firm fibers, but this means you need to push the brush onto the eyes, never drag it across. 
Here is my eyeliner tutorial were I use the standard 209 MAC brush and a push eyeliner brush from Smashbox.

Femme Fetch: MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork
I spoke about the amazing NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils a few post back and my ultimate base for oilier lids when using the pencils is the MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork.  The paint pots work so well with oily skin because of their thick cream formula, much more preferred to creamier lid primers. 
NYX Eye Pencil Post
The paint pot in the shade groundwork is a favorite because of it’s versatility. The color is a taup-y beige, neutral tone which works great as a shadow on it’s own or the perfect base. I wear this the most when doing my own eye makeup and it is bullet proof, no creasing, ever!!!! I have heard of people using this paint pot as an under eye concealer for darker complexions and I am not sure if I can endorse that, but feel free to try it out. 
All the Paint Pots are great but Groundwork is by far my favorite with Bare Study running a close second.

Femme Fetch: NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencils
I am loving the eye pencils from NYX right now. The biggest assest any product can have is versatility and these pencils are super versatile. Great as liner and base color for eyeshadow, after applying a nice creamy lid primer like the one from Urban Decay. Could also be used alone on lids with a decent color payoff. 
The most femme-tastic colors are:
Milk
Strawberry Milk
Cucumber
Peacock
Cashmere
There are 37 shades total so the color selection in amazing and truthfully all the colors kinda rock. NYX is one of the best in terms of variety of shades.
How do you like the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils?

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Re-launch 


I am very much in love with Urban Decay as a complete line. They’ve got great color selection, interesting packaging, and huge versatility. Now they are relaunching their eyeshadows with the ability to create your own six shadow palette. I think this is a genius idea considering the success of the Naked palettes. 

Some of my fave colors from the line include Mushroom, Loaded, X, and Snatch.

What are some of your favorite shades from Urban Decay?

Femme Fetch: Revlon Grow Luscious  LashLiner 
OK, so I am super obsessed with these particular liners right now. I will be honest in saying that the packaging and look of the liner is not that enticing, but the product lives up to it’s claims. It gives a true smudge proof finish with strong color pay off. One of the few liners in pencil form that really won’t budge.
I honestly wish there were more options in terms of color, they only offer four right now;black, brown, gray, and a super gorgeous emerald green. I really think this could stand next to bigger brands like Urban Decay with a few changes to packaging and color selection. This product is super femme-tastic, a total must have.

Bold Colored Eyeliner
I am totally loving the use of bold colors as liners. I think it is a quick and easy way to get a pop of color and especially great for daytime wear. I find that I don’t want to really pile on 6 eye shadows at 8 in morning, but a quick swipe of a purple or blue eyeliner is perfect. 
Some Favorite Liners:
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (try the 24/7 Waterproof Liquid to get real staying power)
NYX Cosmetics Eye Pencils (great price and tons of shades to choose from)
Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner (love the peacock shade)
I have to mention that while I love NARS Cosmetics they have the worst liquid eyeliner pen I have ever used, DO NOT use it, very difficult. Go for one of their standard pencil liners or use their amazing Push Eyeliner brush and push a bold shadow color into the lash line.

Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow
Okay, so I picked these shadows up awhile ago and have worn them a few times in order to give an honest review. I will start off by saying I love them, like seriously love them. They remind me of the MAC Paint Pot’s in consistency, but I almost want to say that the staying power is a bit better with the Maybelline. The big issue with cream eye shadow is the creasing and Maybelline has certainly failed in the past with horrible cream eye shadows before, but this product certainly makes up for that. 
Ok, so I have the Bad to the Bronze and Tough as Taupe shades, I am so obsessed with neutrals, sorry. I am definitely going back to get some of the bolder colors. The stuff has amazing color payoff when applied with fingers and more payoff when applied with something like the NARS 7 concealer brush or any of the MAC shader brushes. I am not sure if it last 24 full hours but it certainly last at least 12. I even fell asleep with the stuff on and it was there when I woke up.
So all in all, this product is a must have. Great worn alone or even as a base.

Almay Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads
I usually use the MAC Cleanse Off Oil to remove my makeup, especially bullet proof eyemakeup, but I have recently decided to work in more cost effective products. To be honest, I have been a makeup snob for years and only recently have I decided to loosen up a bit. 
So the Almay Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads looked interesting and they were on sale, so why not. Now I am saying WHY. This stuff is not good at getting off mascara at all, like it sucks, plus the pads don’t have enough oil on them so you end up using like 3 or 4 if you have on some serious mascara and shadow. 
Moisturizing? I really couldn’t tell any difference, I found myself scrubbing so hard and long with these slightly abrasive pads that I needed moisturizing after I used them. I really think I prefer buying my own remover and deciding the amount of product I put on a cotton ball and going in that way. 
I only recommend this to the ladies who are not wearing heavy eye makeup or those that would like to waste their money, lol. 
So NOT FEMME!!!!!
Maybe you had a different experience, tell me about it, what do u think?

Like this look, but I wish I went heavier on the cheeks for the camera. The cheeks had a deep purple as the contour with a bright orange and pink mixed together on the cheek bone. I also wish I would’ve used a hot pink lip instead of red, it looks perfect in person, but the pink would have looked better on camera. Oh well, now I know what will look better next time.  Like this look, but I wish I went heavier on the cheeks for the camera.
