Just Another Make-Up Monday

Benefit They’re Real mascara // Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion // Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof eye liner

inked by Alissa

Confession: I have been known to wear the same make-up for 2 days in a row, so my favorite make-up finds are all about long-lasting wear.

My absolute favorite thing in my make-up bag is Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I can successfully wear my eyeshadow for 2 days in a row (ok, sometimes 3) without a single crease thanks to this miracle worker!

At my mom’s recommendation, I recently started using Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner. Now that I’m pushing 30, I have these wonderful new lines under my eyes which seem to always be a magnet for eye liner, but the Stila eye liner stays in place & doesn’t fade for days!

Last, but certainly not least, is Benefit They’re Real! Mascara…it boasts that it “lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes” & it’s SO true! Due to it’s staying power, it does take a heavy duty eye make-up remover, but it’s so worth it!

  1. I may or may not have just stocked up on They’re Real in the $10 size from Ulta.com to get the Benefit Gift with purchase! And I may or may not be placing a Smashbox order because it’s Friends & Family week and there is a 25% off code! (Friends25) The “food pantry” stock grows yet again!

  2. Love love love all 3 of these products. I thought the Stila liquid liner would be tricky to apply, but it’s so easy if you apply it in “dashes” rather than one long line. :)

  3. Holly/Allisa, I just started using Benefit’s Badgal Waterproof a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon it in Chicago. Thought it a little pricey but decided to take the plunge anyway. So far I love it but the “waterproof” is not waterproof in the shower:( however, it is hard to remove, which I find strange. So, I will be taking Holly’s earlier advice and getting the Make Up For Ever remover. Haven’t had a chance to get any yet since I didn’t realize it was Sephora exclusive until Ulta girl told me! Thanks, ladies for your wonderful tips!

    • Oh Joyce I’ll have to give that mascara a try sometime too! I like the Benefit “They’re real” in the mini version (and I like the price better too!) because it tends to dry out so I like buying it in the smaller size! Also, my new find is Smashbox CC cream. If you go to Sephora, ask for a sample and tell me what you think!
