Milani Fierce Foil Eyeliner


Milani has a new line of products called Fierce Foil. Today I'll be sharing the Fierce Foil eye liners. These are incredibly gorgeous and the color payoff is just as incredible.

There are 4 shades available in this line. All 4 work well with every skin tone and the formulas for these are so smooth. Each eyeliner comes with an applicator brush which allows you to place the product exactly where you want it. These colors can be easily smudged for a shimmery smoked out look.

My favorite from these four has to be the Purple Foil. I love wearing purple on my eyes, espeically for smokey looks and this liner does the trick.

Another new liner from Milani is this Supreme Kohl Kajal Eyeliner. This waterproof, glide-on liner is so easy to use and applies so smoothly. I can never have too many black eyeliners - especially ones that stay put!

The first 6 Modern Matte lipsticks are very neutral and are great for every day wear. If you're not one to sport bold colors on your lips, try the Matte Bare or Matte Blush. These apply smoothly with just a hint of color.

Evian Facial Spray



Does anyone remember that movie The Wedding Planner? This totally reminds me of that movie! If you know what I'm talking about, leave me a comment.

Anyway, this post is a quick on about this Evian Facial Spray. I could always use a quick burst of refreshing mineral water on my face and this product delivers.

Evian Facial Spray | Kat Stays Polished

Every now and again, my face just gets dry and needs a quick pick-me-up. Evian's mineral water facial spray is easy enough to carry in my bag and keep for those pick-me-up moments. I spray it on my face, let it be for a few minutes, and then gently pat my face dry.

I instantly feel revitalized and refreshed. I'll definitely be bringing this with me to work every day as I'm sure I'll need it coming back from maternity leave.

Get your own bottle HERE. Let me know if you try it and what you think of it!

Jordana Color Tint Blush Stick


I've got another blush post for you but this time it's Jordana's Color Tint Blush Sticks. Now, I think it takes a little practice to use cream blush because it's a little harder to blend into your skin. My recommendation is to use 1 or 2 fingers and lightly apply it to your cheeks instead of smearing the stick on your face. This way you can control how much you put on. It also make it easier to blend and build color as you need it.

Jordana has come out with 6 new blush stick shades. There is a wide variety of colors for you to choose from so there is something for everybody.

There is plenty of product in these cute little sticks. You really don't need much to obtain good color on your cheeks. The swatches below are done to show you just what each shade looks like. Obviously they will be more subtle after proper blending.

These first three shades are closer to the pink side of things. Peach Nectar is a coral-y color that's great for a summertime glow. Baby Pink has a bit of sheen to it so if that's not your style, grab Hot, Hot, Hot and gradually build up your pink color.

Jordana Color Tint Blush Stick | Kat Stays Polished

The second half of the blush sticks are more natural looking with the exception of Rouge Romance which could easily double as lip color. I don't think I am brave enough to use this on my cheeks. Sunkissed and Golden Sheen can be used as a blush or a highlighter. If you don't particularly like wearing blush, Sunkissed will definitely give you a natural looking glow.

Have you ever used blush sticks or cream blush? Which of these 6 would you most likely choose to wear?

These retail for just $2.99 and can be found on Jordana's website or your local Walgreens.

Milani Rose Powder Blush


Hello, friends! Here I have the new Milani Rose Powder Blushes. I love blush but some how I don't own as many as I would like. The three colors in this post give you a nice variety of shades that you can use for any makeup look. I have a hard time deciding if Coral Cove or Tea Rose is my favorite.

Milani Rose Powder Blush | Kat Stays Polished

Coral Cove is a poppy coral shade that might look a little bright in the pan but applies nicely without being too orange-y. I have a few coral blushes that I use often for some of my daytime makeup looks. This one will move to the top of my collection for sure.

Next is Tea Rose - a sweet rosey-pink. I do love how pretty this is. The shade is light enough to use as part of any natural makeup look. It pairs well with my skin tone and this, too, will be moving up in my blush collection for every day use.

Romantic Rose - an elegant natural rose. This shade is a little darker than I would normally wear for blush but I do love how nice it looks on my skin tone. This blush I might use for nighttime looks or as a bold change in my daytime routine.
