cannot live without

1. shu uemura last curler - this is the best curler I've ever had, hands down. I used to use a lot of random ones, but once I discovered Shu Uemura, I sort of became a devout fan.

2. mac fluidline gel eyeliner in blacktrack - you have to ask the Mac people to give you the right brush to go with this little pot of magic. The eyeliner lasts all day, is thick and bold, and with the right brush, it's perfect for controlling the thickness of your eyeliner. Perfect for dramatic cat-eye effects.

3. lancome oscillation waterproof mascara - the vibrations really help distribute mascara evenly and efficiently. It coveres all your lashes in a few strokes and is water proof. The formula is also great at thickening and extending lashes.

4. urban decay 24/7 pencil liner in zero - for the best pencil liner, I use Urban Decay's 24/7. It glides on smoothly and is super dark so you don't have to go over the line a few times. Perfect for smudging and is waterproof.

5. nars blush in orgasm - it is true what they say, this blush is extremely flattering on all skin tones. And just like the name, the glow is similar to the bliss you get after a good time. *wink
