Beauty Crown Awards Week 4 - Eye and Random Products

The Beauty Crown Awards are a yearly favorites collaborative effort including beauty bloggers around the globe. The Beauty Crown Awards were created by Lily from Beauty with Lily Liz from My Pretty Obsessions, Jackie from Five Two Certified, and Shalunya from Shalunya & Boyet.  The Beauty Crown Awards are a 5 week event with each week covering types of products.

Week 4 of the Beauty Crown Awards covers Eye & Misc Products. Below are my Week 4 selections:


I have 3 faves only because I don't feel there is any difference between them.  I love the Urban Decay Primer Potion, the BareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer, and Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

 Pressed Shadows
Any shadows by Urban Decay.  They are so pigmented and buttery smooth.

 My current fave mascara is YSL Faux Cils.  Gives great volume and really holds a curl.

By far the best eyeliner I've used is Urban Decay 24/7.  Most liners usually run on me, especially in my waterline but this eyeliner stays put no matter what!  I have about 8 of them, eeeks.  :)

Again, I have to give it to Urban Decay!  I love my Naked Palette but I just received the Vice 2 Palette and oh my gosh this is amazing!  It's got a few neutral colors but most are shimmery gem colors.  They are so pigmented and gorgeous.  If you've never tried Urban Decay shadows you've just got to find a way to get your hands on some!

Beauty Subscription
Ipsy is my favorite beauty subscription service.  I've tried Birchbox and Sample Society and Ipsy is by far the most fun for a makeup lover like myself.

Beauty Product from Subscription
Derma-e Microdermabrasion Scrub is my fave product that I received from Ipsy.  I never heard of this product or brand before I received this scrub.  I loved it, it really just made my skin glow.

So those are my fave eye products and a few randoms.  I can't believe there's only 1 week left of this series!

p.s. I'd like to wish a VERY Merry Christmas to all my readers out there who celebrate and for those who don't celebrate, have a wonderful day off! :)


  1. Hi El! You have some awesome picks! UD liners go on so silk smooth and the Naked palette is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Got to love the Derma e microdermabrasion scrub! It is just amazing. I wished pencil liner stayed on me because I would love to wear the UD 24/7. The come in such amazing colors!!!! The Vice 2 palette looks soooooo great!! Thanks so much for sharing! I love your picks!

    1. Have you tried patting a little shadow over the eyeliner? That seems to make it stay a little better for me. Thanks for visiting lovely!

  4. I love all of your picks! UD definitely has some of the best quality eyeshadows out there, and I love that have put out so many palettes because their eyeshadows can be pretty pricey. I've never tried Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but I've heard many good things about it. I'm almost out of primer potion, so I might have to give it a try when I run out. Merry Christmas El!
