Product review: new blush and eyeliner

I think I made my position on the Urban Decay 24/7 liner in bourbon known in my Sephora Purchases post. But I'll review it anyway. This liner goes on smooth in a deep bronze color. There is some sparkle so contact lenses wearers beware! I have had issues with the sparkles getting in my eyes. It lasts a good 8-9 hours - I don't have to touch up until evening time with is great but thats with all urban decay liners. The color is rich and glides on so there is no tugging or need to bear a lot of weight on the pencil. The best part is, the color doesn't oxidize as badly as most brown shades do on my eyelids. Now....for me personally, it doesn't work. It's a great product but I don't necessarily love it with my eye color. I've tried many brown shades through the years but usually only black or brown black eyeliners work on me. This shade with my light eyes kind of makes them a little red. I'm probably going to keep it but I haven't made up my mind yet.
I bought this blush sight unseen based on reviews from the sephora.com website. Not super smart in hindsight but I knew I could return it if it didn't work. Lucky for me I love it! It gives the illusion of a tan but not in the way a bronzer does; it's just a really pretty slightly peachy neutral that works on light skin. It can be layered for darker skintones but a really light hand and a fluffy brush are necessary for skin as pale as mine. I'm very satisified with this purchase and I have made it my go to daytime blush.
