Which waterproof eyeliner is better? Both live up to its name as a waterproof pencil and can be applied effortlessly. Just make sure you keep the pencil sharpened, too bad they aren't mechanical which would make application even faster. Even though both are great I would recommend Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliner because application is a little smoother it is lasts longer on the waterline and Urban Decay's formula allows you 30 seconds to blend and smear the eyeliner before it stays put. Both brands offer travel sized sets of 5 pencils: MUFE $29 and UD $35

Seems like Brow expert Anastasia and Laura Gellar have both released similar products at the same time, Brow Pens with a soft felt tip, much like felt tip eyeliners. After finding out about the new brow pen by Anastasia I went to Sephora to try it out. Her pen only comes in one shade, a universal brow shade. At $21 it claims to be long lasting and water resistant until removed with make up remover, and most importantly natural looking. As I was applying it to my brows the color did not blend in. I found the color to have too much red in it and my brows didn't look natural. I assume it would look better on someone with actual brown eyebrows so that the color would camouflage. I haven't tried Laura Gellar's pen yet since it is only available online at QVC at a special into price of $19.98 (orig $22) and won't be appearing in stores until Jan 2009. Her pens offer more color selection: taupe, brown, and dark brown. And this pen's formula claims to do the things Anastasia's does. I wonder if these shades will look better on me. Has anyone tried it yet? I highly recommend you check out QVC because they have videos by the product's creator on how to use them from brands like bobbi brown, smashbox, bare escentuals, laura gellar, and there are also reviews.

So I was able to try out the Dior's new mascara, Diorshow Iconic $27. Pretty pricey but the results are great with their revolutionary new Oblique Brush. With the different type of brush it left my lashes with no clumps. The formula is nice because it isn't too wet and was able to hold a curl and lengthen the lashes all while looking natural. Right now if you purchase this at Nordstrom online or in-store you will receive a deluxe sample of Dior ‘Diorshow’ Mascara in Black with any Dior purchase. This is a great way to try more mascaras by Dior. I have also been using Ardell's Brow and Lash Growth Accelerator and it seems to be making the lashes longer but I'm not so sure about speeding up the growth of my eyebrows. You can pick this up at Ulta or a drugstore for about $4. Check out the reviews at makeupalley
