makeup giveaway - CLOSED

today i'm going to write a post about cheap makeup. why? because it's my favorite. i've watched plenty of youtube makeup tutorials and oogled over the expensive brands. but in the end, i most appreciate those that recommend makeup i can actually afford. so if you're looking for some new eye-makeup recommendations and want something that won't cost you a fortune, i hope to comply. or you could just enter my giveaway and get them for free.

i don't get too fancy with my eye-makeup. never have, never will. i think it makes me look like cleopatra. that said, my favorite makeup is my eye liner and mascara. i've use lots of different eyeliners - the liquid, the pencil, the brush, etc. but my favorite is revlon's colorstay liquid eye pen. it gives you a nice even solid dark color and allows you lots of control. also, if you mess up, no big! it wipes off with one swipe of water. and it will stay put all day unless you jump in a pool.


next up: mascara. i usually get revlon's grow luscious plumping mascara. however, when i was in the store buying the makeup for this giveaway, i was tempted by the sparkly colors of revlon's new lash potion mascara. i've never tried it, but if it's anything like their green bottle then it will do magic to make your lashes stand out. it lengthens and thickens and i've never had it clump. i also like that it doesn't flake at the end of the day.


and last, just for kicks, i'm throwing in some e.l.f. eye shadow. i've never used e.l.f. in my life, but at the last second i was like hey, it's a dollar! and if i were to use e.l.f. eye shadow, this is the color it would be. enchanted.


so, that's it. it's not expensive, but it's what I use.

  11. I never know what people mean by "follow my blog for an entry." I already had you in my Feedly, does that count, or does it only count if I follow you through a designated platform? Am I overthinking this? I follow your blog. And I want to win. You can disqualify me if I'm not abiding by the rules precisely. jjensen024@gmail.com
