Taylor Momsen Smiles ^_^

I've always had a bit of an affinity towards young Miss Momsen since her Gossip Girl days & subsequent rebellion into uber Rock Chick Bad Girl. Despite being one of the moodiest looking teens to , ermm, grace the glossies, she definitely has one of the prettier faces, with or without makeup!
(Click on pics to enlarge)
 Ms. Momsen without the slap!!
I am one of those relatively few people who adore her "racoon" eyemakeup look (when applied correctly) and in these pics it is absolute makeup perfection with fake lashes applied to both top & bottom.

Precision pen liner..... Fine lining!

It took me a while to latch onto the marker-like eyeliners, (that came onto the market relatively recently), initially but I am at last converted.... well kind of!!
It depends on the quality obviously but this can vary widely. The first I ever tried was the Eyelure pen which is decent to be fair but dries up way too quickly during application.... major points lost.
I tried the Mac "Penultimate" liner next which again is decent but the nib just isn't quite as sturdy-while-being-fine as I'd like, and line work isn't as delicate with it pretty early on which is also sucky.
Recently I got my grubby little fingers on "Velvet... by Migi Cosmetics" by way of Heather (Sokolum79 ....again thank you!!)

Now this is a pen worth blogging about! Unfortunately Migi is a brand I've never come across here at my end of the world, I think I've only heard it being mentioned during various youtube videos.
But I believe that it's widely available throughout the US & Canada etc.

Product of the Week; Collection 2000 "16hrs wear Lasting Perfection concealer"

Well!!!

I discovered this little gem from watching Pixiwoo videos and them raving about this cheap but apparently amazing concealer. Now, I am a fan of Collection 2000 in general especially considering the price but have never bothered with their base makeup before, (ie. foundation, concealer etc) as I have found in my experience that it's usually better to pay the little extra for that stuff to be good.
Oh how wrong was I!!!

Product of the Week; Wet 'n' Wild "Fast dry" nail color in 237C "Gray's Anatomy"

Hey Guys!!
Finally can get back to my POTW's now that I'm back in action on the net!
Meet Wet 'n' Wild's "Fast dry" nail color in 237C "Gray's Anatomy"

The pictures unfortunately do not do the colour justice, the pink shot-through "duo chrome" effect is much stronger in real life natural light!
