  When you think of the perfect liquid liner, what do you think of? Easy to use, opaque ink, doesn't bleed, and precise - am I right? I think that is the standard "need" across the board. So when I received the Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner in a subscription...
Covergirl Easy Breezy Brow Sculpt Review
A few weeks ago, Covergirl launched their Spring 2018 makeup collection.

Marlena Stell, the owner and founder of Makeup Geek, is launching a new business that is set to launch sometime in 2018. Well, we finally have a name...Marste'. It's a cute play on words, using her name Marlena (MAR) and Stell (STE) with an added French flair. I can't...
By a show of hands, who's tired of cold, grey weather? 🙋🏻‍♀️Honestly, I think most people in the north American hemisphere feel the same way. I'm ready for Birkenstock temperatures (for me that's anything over 10℉) but what I really mean is warm, sunny, and comfortable. Riding in the...
