Review: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner

Image
I have a confession. I'm lazy when it comes to makeup. Actually, that's not true. I'm lazy when it comes to mornings. I don't like them. I do everything I can to trim tasks from my mornings so I can swipe my phone alarm to snooze a few more times. Because of this, I'm not one to wear eye makeup (or even makeup) every single day. And I'm always on the lookout for a simple beauty products I can apply while running out the door.

I have a second confession. I'm not good at liquid eyeliner. On top of being lazy in the morning, I lack the patience to properly practice. When I first saw liquid liner in a marker format, I got really excited, but the first few drugstore brands I tried let me down. I was reluctant to try a pricier brand lest that disappoint me too.

Pick of the Week: Target Linen Pants Revisted

Image
I love a good pair of linen pants, but a good pair can be pricey. That's why I wrote about these Target linen pants back in 2011. They used to carry them every year, but the last two years they've either drastically changed them or skipped them all together. This year they are back and better than ever! The pants have always had a drawstring waist, which I felt compelled to cover up. It was never the most attractive, but the pants this year but a much nicer waistline. It's still a drawstring, but the band for the waist is wider and more flattering than some of the previous versions Target has offered. The pants cost $25 and come in a few colors (more colors in stores than online).
