5. NYX slide on eye liner

This is a great eyeliner if you’re in between paychecks and can’t justify that $57 Tom Ford eyeliner (yikes!). It’s really smooth and easy to apply, and at $8 can’t be beat! It really reminds me of the Urban 24/7 and just feels a little bit less “glide-ey” than the cult 24/7 liner.

4. Laura Geller gel liner

I received this in an allure beauty box and I LOVED IT! It was so so so dark on me which as an ebony skinned women, was miraculous! I’d tried sooo many “super pigmented” black eyeliners before this and never found them to be as pigmented. I tried rebuying it  and making it a staple and found the $20 price tag just a tad too steep at the time ( I was a broke college student y’all). I am however going back to this and can’t wait to have super pigmented kohl lined lids!

This $20 eyeliner is one of the most popular eyeliners in the beauty community and for good reason! Like the name suggests, it lasts a really long time and glides on very smoothly. The only negative I have about this is that the other colors in the range aren’t as smudge proof. I highly recommend the black shade (perversion), as it’s highly pigmented and lasts forever on the lids.

2. Benefit Push up liner

This uber famous liner which had one of the best launch marketing strategies (in my humble opinion) is phenomenal!! I fell in love with it in my quest to master winged liner and it was the best decision ever! The tip which was created to help make creating winged liners easier is so helpful. I used to wear the best, fiercest, thickest cat eyes when I wore this every day. The only downside to this liner is the amount of product that comes out each time you twist the bottom. It’s so long lasting g and so dark and I honestly don’t know why I’m not currently using it!

THIS! I found this eyeliner so randomly on a comment on a random beauty post and haven’t looked back since. I wish I could remember the person who mentioned this because I’d treat her to the best overpriced brunch ever! This $3 liner is so pigmented and so easy to use, it’s honestly such a surprise that it’s not a cult favorite. It’s also TRULY waterproof and lasts until you grab that eye makeup remover and swipe it off. I love the ease of the wand which makes creating delicate cat eyes so easy. I love this so much and hope some of you try it and love it as much as I do because at $3, it’s honestly a steal!!!

Top 5- Fall Lipsticks 

MAC retro matte liquid lipstick in ‘Uniformly Fabulous’

This is my favorite dark lip for this season! It applies so opaquely and stays on all day post greasy lunch and dinner! I usually have to reapply post lunch around the edges but it doesn’t leave my lips feeling tight and uncomfortable.

NYX soft matte lip cream in ‘Vancouver’

This is the perfect purple soft matte lipstick. It doesn’t last all day like the MAC retro matte lipsticks do but it feels so comfortable! It is also very flattering for a wide variety of skin tones and makes me feel like a purple unicorn each time I wear it!!

Colorpop matte liquid lipstick in ‘Lax’

As far as liquid lipsticks go, color pop were the OG. They also have one of the lowest price points and have one if the widest shade ranges out there. They’re not the most comfortable but last all day! This shade, especially makes me feel like a baWse whenever I wear it!

MAC lipstick in ‘Rebel’

This was my first dark lipstick ever and it has stood the test of 7 years of repurchasing to be in my faves! I love the berry purple shade of this lipstick and the stain it leaves behind! I’m nota fan of satin lipsticks but this one feels like a velvet matte finish and lasts longer than a typical satin lipstick.

NARS velvet matte lip pencil in ‘train bleu’

This is my favorite NARS lip product mainly because of the incredible aubergine color and the ease of application. It doesn’t last as long as I’d like but the fact that it’s a pencil which means I don’t need a lip liner before applying makes it easy to take it and reapply all day!!

Honestly, 75% of the reason why I love the fall season so much is because I get to wear all the deepest darkest lipsticks without anyone batting an eye! To be honest, I do wear ‘uniformly fabulous’ during the summer months however, I feel way more comfortable wearing these lipsticks while snuggled up in all the burnt orange knit sweaters, leather jackets, and Chelsea boots!!
