Sarah is Smitten with…Pencil Perfection.


Pencil Perfection? Color me SMITTEN!

Lately it seems the products I am constantly reaching for, my newest favorites, are popping up in PENCIL form…and who can resist a good theme post!?


#1 Obsessed:

NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Pop Life = the most gorgeous perfect red I ever did see. Never have I ever found a red that I was truly happy with…felt like a million bucks with…and I know you know what I’m talking about. It’s the red lipstick dilemma. Either too pink or too orange or too shiny. (Please never ever ever EVAH wear shiny full on red. Please. Unless you are on Ru Paul’s Drag Race, then….go ahead.) “Pop Life” is none of those things. It is simply red lip perfection. Dab it on and top with balm for a pretty pick me up, or draw on full strength for a surprisingly wearable classic red kisser. Muah. Sephora $24


#2 Borderline Hording these Suckers:



 In other life-changing and pencil related news, and particularly interesting to the lazy makeup wearer . . .Sephora Waterproof Jumbo Eye Pencils are where it’s at for a killer smokey eye with couch potato effort. Super smudgeable (as long as you work quickly, since it sets fast) with a waterproof finish, these pencils glide on like a freaking Olympic figure skater and with a high pigment payoff to boot. Use on lower and/or upper lash line, lids, you name it. Fabulous. My favorite shades are (22) Dark Taupe Shimmer, (04) Taupe, (07) Brown.  Can’t go wrong with gorgeous neutrals you won’t be able to live without!  Sephora $14


#3 Will NEVER Be Without:

NYX Wonder Pencil.  A.K.A.: nude, portable, ridiculously affordable multitasking SON of a GUN, for the brightening of yer waterline OR the covering of ye olde zit. (Ugh) This baby is just so versatile and teeny – perfect to pop in a purse for emergency concealing and brightening! LOVE IT. Might.Marry.It. And apparently everyone else is equally smitten, because they are always sold out. If they are available – stock up!  Ulta $4 (Holla!)



Peace out for now, my Pretties!
