Staying home with T meant going from 2 incomes to 1. We refer to that talk as our “come to Jesus” meeting. In heartfelt conversation, Patrick told me I was going to have to drop my Sephora habit. There is no lip gloss that excites me as much as my child, so this was no problem. I took stopping impulse purchases as a sort of personal challenge. Recently, I did need a new eye liner and I have been reading about the fabulousness of liquid liners. I fail with liquid liners. It is as awkward a moment for me as the time I told the owner of my company that I had an addiction to zappos and then spent the next few hours worrying that she took that statement at face value instead of the humor I had intended. I digress….I found this amazing liquid liner that I can do really easily for $5.50. It’s “Glam Liner Aqua Luxe” by NYX, and it’s brown with gold flecks. The tip is really thin, so it seems error-proof to me, and it lasts all day without smudging. I like to use brown pencil liner from underneath my lashes and then use this above my lashes for a stand out eye. The sparkle in it is girly enough without too much in an “am I too old for this” kind of way. I am so excited with this fabulous bargain. It is a fraction of any other eye liner I have ever had and it is the BEST! I got it at Ulta, but they also have a website, www.nyxcosmetics.com.
