Helloooo! I feel sad not updating when my eye is still healing (LOL) and I'm going to be real busy this week cause we have labs now. Alongside traveling for work, I'm going to be beat so you can best bet on my free time, I'll be napping, haha! I purchased this liner pen about a month ago when it was on sale for a buy one get one half off deal at CVS. I snagged this along with the Colorstay Automatic liner pencil. Its been about 6-7 years since I've used any Revlon liners, and I wasn't disappointed.

PRODUCT: Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen
PRICE: 8.99USD (depending where you purchase)

With Urban Decay that is, lol. I was so excited when I saw a few of these at my local Ulta, so I just had to take that opportunity to purchase this because they usually sell out right away as they get restocked. I wanted to squeeze in a few more EOTDs before doing a review, but currently my eye is irritated or I have a pink eye - I'm not sure which one it is, ahaha. So for the time being, I can't really do any eye looks. I'm hoping by the weekend it'll clear up, so we'll see about that. I also wanted to let you all know that I'm working now as well as going to school so I'm going to be much more busy nowadays. My job requires me to work overtime so I'm not sure how often I will be posting which is why my surprise giveaway has been extended to Sept. 5th. I'm still waiting on some items I've ordered for the giveaway so I'm hoping it shows up soon so I can finally post up the prizes. Also, please join my gift card giveaway, it ends this Monday. Any who, let's get back to the review. Just to let you know, this is my first ever palette from Urban Decay. I've used some of their single shadows before, but I've never purchased any of their palettes, lol.
