Is This Your Holy Grail Liner?

This MAYBELLINE Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner in Black ($7.99 @ ulta.com, drugstore.com) seems to be residing between a liquid liner and a pencil liner. It’s part of their fall collection and I don’t think this color could be any blacker!

This is probably the closest to an overall Sharpie-look of an eye liner I’ve ever come across – the liner tip and pen-like case and even the color on the skin. And what I like about this most is that I can choose from a thin or thick line across the lid.

And this didn’t bleed at all, which is a very important trait to me, and lasted an average of 8 hours before starting to wear off.

Some may find this one a tad difficult to wield as the tip is rounded instead of pointed, which I mentioned above. This works fine for me but I found that I had to draw a medium to thick line by default because of the shape, so if you’re a novice, you may not want to start with this one.

I’m Showing #ShoeLove to #Amopé This Season

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amopé™. The opinions, photos and text are all mine.

I officially tucked my flip-flops away this past weekend and will be pulling out more of my actual shoes now that we are on fall's doorstep. And for me, with actual shoes comes the need for foot support. I sometimes feel like I'm the only one on the planet who has an actual shoe box full of full support products! Shoe too big? I have something for it. Shoe rubbing on a toe? I have something for it. And when I'm out shopping for new shoes I keep the contents of what's inside this box at the back of my brain and will even buy ½ size up to accommodate, if I think I'm going to need something extra inside my shoe.

Is Debbie Meyer Your Answer?

Debbie-Meyer-GeniusSpongeDebbie-Meyer-GeniusSponge-scrubber-side

I know you come here for my write-ups on beauty but every once in a while I come across something in another category that is just so much better than the rest so I just have to share.

Ok, set the scene, you belly up to the kitchen sink to take care of the evenings dishes and like every night, you grab hold of that gross/stinky/disgusting/ insert your own word here, which is growing mold and teaming with bacteria and proceed to spread those germs all over your dishes, cutlery, glasses, not to mention my hands, eww.

So with my conventional sponge, I tried a few things like microwaving it, which I found on Pinterest. But I’m not too sure what I’m heating up and how safe that is so just I tried changing it out more frequently but then I felt wasteful, especially to the wallet.

Then, while flipping through the channels one day, I came across the DEBBIE MEYER GeniusSponge with Scrubber. The GeniusSponge is made of polyurethane and inhibits the growth of anything and can be cleaned in the dishwasher. And they claim that theirs will last 15 times longer than the traditional cellulose sponge not to mention it can suck up more water. So after I retire one from dish washing, I transfer it over to house cleaning.

And no, I’m not being paid to tout this, I’m just an average female that needed something more than those gross sponges I’ve had to suffer with.

Need more reasons to buy? When using the scrubber on eggs or baked on food, the residue will not stick to the sponge! Now I wasn’t used to that the first few times I used it but now I expect it.

Normally a set of 3 sponges cost an average of $3 so yes, @ $27.95/12 sponges or $2.32 per sponge is significantly more than you’re used to paying but since I get more “life” when I use one of these sponges, I think I’m getting a better value, or at least my nose and dishes are. I’m a convert. Get yours @ hsn.com
