Pixi Beauty Endless SIlky Eye Pens + Eye Define/Eye Bright - Swatches and Review

April 26, 2018

 Today I have swatches of some Pixi Beauty Eyeliners that I was recently sent. The Silky Eye Pens come in some gorgeous shades that are perfect for spring and the Eye Define/Eye Bright are liners that are great for the waterline. Pixi eyeliners are some of my favorite drugstore liners since they are long lasting, have a lot of pigmentation, and glide on with ease. If you are wanting a quality liner that will not smudge, these are them. See swatches and more info below.

March 28, 2018

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.
Today I'm chatting with you about the unicorn of moisturizers: Olay Total Effects Whip.

I try and keep my daily makeup routine to only a few products so that I can get done in a timely manner. Incorporating Olay Total Effects Whip into my routine has made my makeup last longer throughout the day and works great for my dry skin.
