For the longest time, I avoided black eyeliner. I was convinced it was too harsh for me and I lived for my long discontinued MAC Graphic Brown Fluidline. But when my Graphic Brown supply finally ran out I forced myself to go out of my comfort zone and experiment with new products and colors.

I now embrace black liner and when I wear another color, it seems too subtle. Go figure, right? So, as part of the latest Makeup Wars, I’m sharing the best black eyeliners in my stash with you.

Outside of my go-to neutrals, purple is my favorite eyeshadow color to wear. It just works so well with my pale skin, dark hair and eyes. So when I heard that my Makeup Wars pals were focusing on best purple eyeshadows this week, I was all in!

Of course, I have way too many purple eyeshadows for my own good but a lot of them are LE and no longer available. So, I’m sharing some core faves along with some new gems I’ve recently discovered.

When it comes to travel, I’m not what you would call a “light packer.” In fact, I bring a travel scale to make sure my bag doesn’t go over the weight limit when flying. I just figure, if the airline allows you 50 pounds, may as well be prepared.

However, when it comes to packing my beauty products, I pretty much have that process streamlined. I always have my travel beauty kit, with the exception of my makeup bag, stowed in my carry-on, ready for the next getaway.

As you may recall, I went on a cruise in January so today, as I open up my kit to share my Travel Beauty Essentials, I’m using pics from the ship and our stops in Cozumel, Honduras and Belize as the backdrop.

Blogger Enabled Beauty Buys

I’ve been involved in the world of beauty blogging for longer than the 7+ years I’ve been writing All Lacquered Up. I started reading beauty blogs when I was an active member of Makeup Alley and 9 times out of 10, I still opt for reading blogs over books or magazines.

So, narrowing down the products to feature in this week’s Makeup Wars topic, Blogger Recommendations, was a challenge, to say the least. Um, what don’t I use that I haven’t read about on a blog? To keep this from becoming a book, I chose the products that I use on the regular that were enabled by some of my fave beauty/nail bloggers.
