Stila Kajal Eyeliner ($18, Sephora)

In case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been during these post-less couple of weeks, I did not get eaten by a monster in the blogosphere. No, the truth is, I am a freelancer, which sometimes makes it difficult to juggle and stay on top of all of my projects at once. But fear not–your trusty “I’m looking fabulous at half the cost” guide is back.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, eyeliner is the most important item in my makeup bag. Can’t. Live. Without. It. The Stila Kajal Eyeliner is what I’ve been looking for for years. It is super soft, gliding on effortlessly without hurting the lashline. Dark, sooty eyes are the result.

With that said, it easily smudges, creating a smoky look; so if you’re looking for something that will provide a 100% smudge-proof, thin line, the Stila Kajal Eyeliner may not be the product for you. I find it helpful to periodically use a q-tip throughout the day to remove away any excess color fragments. To some, that may seem like far too much work. What can I say, I’m a slave to dramatic makeup.

Palmer’s Lip Butter: Beauty on a Budget at Its Best

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Butter Dark Chocolate & Peppermint ($1.99, www.drugstore.com)

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Butter Dark Chocolate & Peppermint ($1.99, www.drugstore.com)

Palmer’s cocoa butter skin products are second to none, in this beauty addict’s opinion. It’s that good, you ask? Yes. So good that my friends and I would always stock up on Palmer’s  during visits home before heading back to college overseas, where Palmer’s products were not available.

I still squeal with delight every time I cover my lips in Palmer’s Lip Butter. It provides dry lips with instant relief in the form of a velvety-smooth ointment that has a hint of shine to it. What else do I love about it? For someone who is so sick of the artificial strawberry scent so common in today’s lip treatments, it’s refreshing to finally see some  ‘grown-up’  flavors–Dark Chocolate & Peppermint and Dark Chocolate & Cherry.

Palmer’s Lip Butter is probably the most budget-friendly product StealThisDress! has reviewed yet. At $1.99, it truly deserves a rating of 5 luscious lips!
