Up until this year, I have never been one to swoon over eye makeup. Sure, I might do it up for a special occasion such as a sorority formal or a nice date with my boyfriend, but other than that, I've always felt that it was a tad unnecessary for everyday life. However, when I purchased Urban Decay Naked, it was game over. It's been a few months since then and my eyeshadow reservoir is growing almost weekly. I have three new products that I find myself reaching for quite frequently: Merle Norman's Pro Pen Eyeliner in Sharp Black, NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cashmere, and Stila's Kitten.

Merle Norman Pro Pen Eyeliner in Sharp Black: This eyeliner applies like a dream. The applicator tip is pen-like, making winged liner much easier for ladies like me, with unsteady hands. It also lasts for hours, which is quite a feat for a liquid eyeliner.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cashmere: Everyone loves a good bargain. NYX products always deliver great quality at an even better price. I love using this color on the inner corners of my eyes and the lower lash line. It's a glowing cream color that brightens your entire eye area. If I were a betting woman, I'd also bet that this would look amazing right beneath your brows, as well as on top of your cheek bones.
Stila Eye Shadow Pan in Kitten: Out of these three eye products, I'd say Kitten has been my biggest surprise. I hardly ever wear eyeshadows lighter than my natural skin color. I can't explain why, but light pinks and creams make me feel slightly juvenile, like a five year old at a ballet recital. This shimmery, creamy-pink is very flattering. I didn't even realize what a large following this product had until I did some post-purchase research. It's quite popular, and I can see why!
