{Only Pick 1} Eyes Edition


We're back for the 2nd edition of my Only Pick 1 series, talking about eye products today. You can check out last weeks face edition here

I had a lot of comments last week about this series, I would LOVE to see your favorites! You should join in sharing your Only Pick 1 favorites too. 

Lorac Makeup
Brow Gel

Mascara | L'Oreal Voluminous 
Any of them, honestly I've never tried a L'Oreal mascara I didn't like. They're one of my favorite products from the drugstore, L'Oreal knows how to make a good mascara. 

Shadow Palette | LORAC Pro 
When I travel, this is the palette I pack. It's the perfect mix of matte and shimmer shades, great for so many looks. These shadows are so soft and highly pigmented. I own and love all the Urban Decay palettes too, but the Lorac one takes the cake for me. 

Eye Primer | LORAC Behind the Scenes 
You receive this when you buy one of their palettes. I fell in love with it and will definitely repurchase. I used to be a fan of the Too Faced Shadow Insurance but I was noticing it creasing. This never creases on me, ever. I want my shadow look to last all day, this does the trick. 

Eye Liner | Urban Decay 24/7
Creamy, pigmented and lasts all day. Exactly what I want in a liner. I've received several of these in my Ipsy bags and I've bought one of the duos in black & brown. I use them every single day!  

Brow Product | Benefit Gimme Brow 
I did a whole post on this product. Gosh I love it! Once I started actually paying attention to my brows, I never looked back. I feel like when my brows are done, my look is more complete, it helps to frame my face. During the week when I'm getting ready for work, I want to accomplish this in little to no time, so this product is perfect for that! A couple little swipes and my brows are darker, shaped and will stay put. 

Those are all of my favorite eye products, the ones I would have no trouble committing to for the rest of my life. Join me next Tuesday for the next edition in this series, LIPS! 

You can find me over on Karissa's blog tomorrow sharing some of my favorite fall nail polishes that I think you need to know about. 

Are any of these products a favorite for you? What are some of your all time favorite eye products?

  1. I've been thinking about switching up my eyebrow game (I'm currently using Anastasia products) and was tempted by Gimme Brow when I recently went to a wax at the Benefit store...I think it may be time to jump onboard! Thanks for the recommendations!

  2. I swear by the Benefit Gimme Brow, too ever since you introduced me to it! I used to spend like 5 minutes on just my brows and now I spend maybe 30 seconds?! Such a huge time saver!

  3. I need the Benefit Gimme Brow! I usually use a dark brown shadow to do my eyebrows. Is that a no,no?

  4. I've heard so much about those 24/7 liners but haven't bit the bullet yet. I have SUCH a problem with smudging that I'm hesitant to spend the dollar bills on a high end liner with the fear that it'll end up smudging (even if it doesn't on others...my eyelids are super weird hah)

  5. I really need to try that eyeliner. I've been looking for one that won't smudge! I might also join you with your pick one series. Such a good idea!

  6. I've wanted the Lorac palette for ages.Everyone always raves about it. But now Sephora stopped carrying the Lorac line. :(

  7. Yes! Lorac Pro takes the cake! Haha - I love all the UD palettes, too, but I just think the Lorac one is unbelievable. Gimme Brow also has been a game-changer for me during the week - now if only we could find a more affordable dupe for it. I may consider doing this series during the month of November or sometime in the near future - it is so fun and such a great concept!

  9. Voluminous was my old favorite mascara before I discovered They're Real. Do you still prefer Voluminous?

  10. Great series!! I tried that mascara and I didn't like it. I'm loving the Maybelline Mega Plush Volum' one though. That eyeliner sounds fab, I may have to try it!! Thanks for sharing your picks and I hope that you are doing well! :-)

  11. I definitely cannot live without that 24/7 eyeliner! I LOVE it! I want to buy some of the other colors, I just have the black and brown too. And that palette sounds amazing!

  12. So many products I want to try! Mainly the pro palette and those eye liners! I've put the duo ended ones in my cart so many times but always convince myself I don't really need them, even though I currently don't own a single eyeliner!

    ReplyDelete
  13. My favorite is Loreal More Voluminous or something like that. I didn't care for just the voluminous too. I thought it smudged too much!

  15. I'm obsessed with my Lorac shadows, they are the best. I love the L'Oreal Carbon Black Telescopic mascara...my holy grail! I'll have to try this one!
    I need to get my hands on Gimme Brow, I need something quick and easy for work days!

  17. L'Oreal Voluminous mascara was probably my first favorite mascara ever. They do make great mascaras, I have to agree! The LORAC Pro palette is a good one....I like their pro to go palette as well. It has three neutral shades, perfect for vacations and such. And I need to get that Gimme Brow...I hate having to take three different products for my brows when I go somewhere.

  18. Eyebrow makeup is so key and I can't believe I just realized it! Love the Lorac palettes for sure, too.

  22. Do you do your brows every day or just on special days (dates/going out, etc). I haven't nailed them down yet, so it prob takes me too long to do every day!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Brows are SO important to my look - definitely love your picks!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't use any of these, but for sure putting on my list of products to try! I always love trying something new!

  30. You already know my obsession with Gimme brow but I'll say it again...I love this stuff! I've been wanting to try out the Urban Decay liner but wondered if it is worth the bucks! Sounds like it is :)

  31. I completely agree girl I am a black eyeliner connoisseur (self proclaimed naturally ;-) and the UD one is my absolute favorite! The L'oreal mascara is such a tried and true winner as well!

  33. L'Oreal is the best!! I am a huge proponent of filling in brows. I have a favorite, but I might need to try this one.

  34. I don't generally do anything to my brows because mine are generally pretty full and I don't want to make them any darker, but I've been debating whether to splurge on Gimme Brow for a quick fix product when I really need it. I think at the very least you've convinced me to put it on my Christmas list!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've been debating on Gimme Brow, but now I am definitely going to purchase. xo

  36. What a fun series, Mia! I need to try the UD eyeliner. I think you may have mentioned it to me a while back. I feel like I have so many to use right now even just from my Ipsy bags!
