TOP 5: Favorite Summer Eye Products!

Since Summer is now in full swing, I decided to unleash a bunch of fun new summer makeup videos! This is #1 on the list: My Top 5 Favorite Summer eye products.
Without further adieu, here they are:

#1. MAC Neutrals (Honesty, Soft Brown, Vanilla).
This is my all-time favorite eyeshadow combo for summer. The combination of two matte shadows and one more iridescent and shimmery is essentially the "icing on the cake," or key ingredient to any fresh face.
2. Shimmery MAC Paint Pot.
This creaseless shadow holds my shadows in place all day long, without running or caking. It also doubles as a great on-the-go shadow. Easy to put on in the car (trust me. been there, done that!) and looks great by itself.
3. Invincible Waterproof Black STILA Liner.
This liner is my holy grail summer product. When Stila deems any one of their products, "Waterproof," they really mean it. You can easily wear this for a day at the pool or the beach, (and actually get your face wet--repeatedly) without worrying about your liner running down your face halfway through.
#4. Dazzling MILANI Glitter-infused liner.
I cannot express how much I LOVE metallics for summer!! This liner is >$8 I believe, which just makes it an even better addition to your collection. Glides on easily and doesn't run!

#5. Rockin' MAC Metallic Pigment.
There are no words to describe my love for this colored pigment. It is the perfect cross between gold and an electric orange; I LOVE IT! This pigment looks great swiped across the upper/lower lash line, or even use in it's dry form to define the crease.

Keeping up with the... SillyBandz?

That's it.
Kardashian merch has been available via internet through sites like CafePress for quite some time now since the air of their E! show, "Keeping up with the Kardashians." Hoodies, iPhone cases, duffle bags, coffee mugs,... You name it. Back in January however, the K-dash sisters released a new line of products that just might surprise you.
Yup, that's right. SillyBandz.

"The Kardashian Glam pack includes a perfume bottle, kiss lips, a high heel shoe, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, sunglasses, a diamond ring, a purse, as well as the words DASH, Glam, and the letter K!." (as enlisted on the SillyBandz official website.)
The Kardashian clan has even been spotted sporting their bandz on the red carpet

So, a parting question...
Is silicone really the new gold?
