La Bella Donna Liquid Eyeliner Pen Review

La Bella Donna Liquid Eyeliner Pen

Ah, liquid liner. Quite possibly the most difficult makeup product to replace when going green. I’ve tried a handful and have yet to find one that stands up to my beloved Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. I probably won’t, considering all the icky ingredients in the Stila Liner are what makes it perform so well, but I’m hopeful! Today I want to talk a little about an eyeliner pen I tried recently by La Bella Donna.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

I love any excuse to dress up. Today, my BFF Trina and I finally won the office costume contest after almost three years of trying. This year our costume was based on an office inside joke, but I wanted to share our pride and joy with you. Here are some previous costumes of ours too, so you’ll know just how many things a tall redhead and a short asian girl can be together:

My Red Apple Lipstick Lippies So Far

My Red Apple Lipstick Lippies

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of the brand Red Apple Lipstick. Even before I went green, I was on a search for lippies that didn’t irritate my sensitive lips. I hesitate to try any product with any Vitamin E in it. However, RAL’s lippies are made with a high-quality, gluten-free Vitamin E that doesn’t make my lips angry. I am so glad I found them!

I hope you’re ready for this. I found a lot of good staples last month that have made their way into my daily rotation.

1. 100% Pure Mint White Tea Tonique – I originally purchased this toner to use as a makeup setting spray, but I’ve also been using it during my daily/nightly cleansing routine. When my skin needs a little more hydration, I mist all over and let the toner sink in. Otherwise, I usually mist all over and wipe it up with a cotton ball. This toner smells wonderful, and keeps my skin feeling taught. It sets my makeup nicely and keeps it from looking cakey.

2. Kjaer Weis Creme Blush in Suntouched – I received this sample at Veer & Wander, a salon and apothecary in the SoMa area of San Francisco. The rep there said it was the perfect natural color for my skintone, and after using it almost every day, I totally believe her! It’s a beautiful, youthful coral that brightens the complexion. It’s very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I think I’ll purchase a refill of this once I’m finished with my sample.

January was a very experimental month for me. Lots of sampling and returns. I discovered some staples, both clean and ‘dirty.’ I found myself reaching for these products the most: 1. Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Body Lotion, Maximum – I’ve been on the hunt for the right body lotion that will keep the dry […]
