7-11 Eyeliner.... I tried it for a day!!

Eyeliner from a convenient store line? What? 



Did you know that your local 7-11 has its very own makeup line now?? That is right you can color coordinate that slurpee mouth with lips to match!




I was totally unaware of this until I recently ran across a vlogger that wore a complete face of their make up for a day! I had to watch, I was intrigued and I anticipated it being like a train wreck. You know it is going to be horrible but you just can't look away!! After all, it wasn't my skin that was in jeopardy! I was going to live vicariously through her!!

So to summarize her experience and from what I saw the make up left her skin very oily and shiny, the colors were very orange hued and it didn't have a good over all look. Think wax museum with no ac and a heat wave...... but at the end of the vlog and day I noticed her eyeliner!

Those lines were still crisp and weren't smeared, and she had went BOLD with those lines. Hmmm, ok she lived in a fairy tale town though.You know the kind. One where 100% humidity and 100 degree weather are not an every day evil that we here in Florida have to live with. There was only one thing to do! I had to purchase it and wear it to Disney for the day!!!

So let's get started!

Application: 


Ok the felt tip is a little more flexible than I am used to but still not bad at all. 
It went on evenly and stayed put through the rest of my makeup application. 
There was no stinging or burning.  


First two hours of the trip


It is humid as heck, pushing 100 degrees and I am melting... 
this eyeliner however, is doing pretty well. 
There is some transfer on my lid but it is from a mascara that I was trying the same day. 
We will talk about that another day. 


Four hours in....

Not to bad. I was pouring sweat, I mean "Glistening" like crazy! we had stopped for a snack and I think the only reason the corner is a little missing is because I wiped it. 
Oops!! Almost to the finish line!!


At the end of a hot nasty humid day....

Yea I wiped a corner clear away, but without that issue this was the finished result. 
Not to bad for a liner that is under three bucks!!
And as you can see I am melting like a crayon in an easy bake! 


Summary:

All in all if you are on a budget and want the best eyeliner for the few bucks I would recommend it! 
After all, just because you are on a budget doesn't mean you shouldn't look fabulous right??? 
It stayed put, didn't irritate my eyes or skin, Came off cleanly and survived a summer day at Disney! 

Where to get it. 

7-11 I am assuming across the country. 

Cost: 

Here in Orlando it was $3.99 but I am not sure if there are any price changes in other areas.

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal Review!!!

I have been stuck with a tattoo that I hate for a very long time now. I had looked into removal before but the cost was way too much. I had looked into covering it up but never fell in love with anything that would cover this hideous thing up.

I finally found out about Picosure!! This laser is amazing!

Why I love it:

NO Scarring, Fewer treatments than previous lasers by as much a 50%, less cost, and less discomfort!
But does it work?? I have had one treatment and these are my results: WARNING THE SECOND TWO PICS ARE KIND OF GROSS!!!!

Pic one: my very gross tattoo before the treatment. Yea what was I thinking??? Pic two: directly after the treatment. Lots of frost and you can see the blisters forming. this is actually a good thing haha

Pic 3: a gross mess. But it wasn't hurting. It actually looks worse because of the goop you have to keep on it.  Pic 4..Almost all the way healed and wow at the amount of color that is gone from it. Granted it isn't a clear pic because I had to take it m…

Things I am loving....Bem (pronounced Beam)

I am not easily impressed when it comes to speakers for my phone. I have had a few and not any of them have delivered what I was looking for. 
This Christmas I received the Bem (pronounced Beam) Bluetooth mobile speaker at our company party. I took it home and put it to the side for a few days. Never really giving it much thought. A few days later while putting some stuff away I ran across it again and decided to charge it up and give it a try.
Let me just say I was blown away! The sound that comes out of that little black cube is sensational! I was very impressed. While obviously it won't be mistaken for your surround sound it also will never be confused for one of those sketchy little portable speakers either!
I use my Bem when I am cleaning house because I can just pick up the little box and move it from room to room, but I can't wait for this summer when I can use it at the beach! No more leaving my car doors open at the beach I can park on or carrying a radio when I have t…

How to keep your eye safe from Makeup

Your eyes are precious!! Here are some tips for avoiding infection and abrasions from your makeup!

1. Keep it to yourself! Your mom always said you should share but in this case it is an absolute no no!! Sharing eye makeup means sharing bacteria and disease. No matter who it is!!


2. Keep it outside the line! Keeping your liner to the outside of the lash line prevents abrasions to the lids and eye. Applying to the waterline increases the chance that particles will migrate into the tear film over the cornea . This increases your chance of infection and irritation.


3. Keep sharp!
Keep your liner sharp so that the line is more precise. This will help lessen the chance to scratches to your eyes. Also make sure there are no wooden splinters left behind when you sharpen and that it sharpened evenly on all sides.

4. Keep it Fresh! Replacing all eye makeup every 3-4 months avoids bacterial infection. Also avoid products that have expired. A good rule of thumb with mascara is whe…
