pixi Flawless Beauty Primer

Merry Christmas!  :) I do have a Christmas manicure for you, but I'll show that later.  I got my beauty bag from Target on Friday and I am pretty please.  It came in an adorable clutch and had tons of samples!
Yesterday I tried the pixi Flawless Beauty Primer and I was not impressed.  Here's what they said
Truly luxurious skin illuminating face primer to correct uneven skintone, restore skin's youthful glow and balance skin hydration.
Well, I didn't wear this for long.  It put it on and almost immediately took it back off.  It was very greasy and slimey almost like a cheap lotion.  I tried putting it on very thin too, but still
no luck. 
I may just seem really bad to me because I have tried Arbonne's make up primer which is absolutely amazing, and other than that I have nothing to compare it to.
Overall I would give this primer 2/5 since I didn't actually try it under my make up.
I most definitely won't be purchasing unless I hear that other people are having way better experiences and I am just crazy!

NYC Showtime Glitter Eyeliner

I got this in my VoxBox a while ago and it is one of the few things I liked a lot from the VoxBox!

Check out NYC's website- http://newyorkcolor.com/

They say Straight from the city that never sleeps, NYC New York Color offers products with uptown style at down-to-earth prices, from $.99 - $4.99. The energy, style, and color of New York City shines through the wide range of shades, textures and innovative products. NYC always delivers the most on-trend products & shades hot off the runway
I have used this a lot already.  Not only is it great for eyeliner, I have been using it as shadow, too.  I just make dots on the outer corner of my eye and blend it in.  I am pleased with the color as well as the glitter distribution.  The only con for me would be that it is a pencil that you do actually have to sharpen.  This creates hassel as well as mess, and lost product.
Overall- ****
I would most definetely buy this again!

December Gradient!

So this is my first ever gradient, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out! :)

I used China Glaze Sky High Top & Fairy Dust, OPI How's it Snowing, What's With the Cattitude, & Teal the Cows Come Home, and Sinful Colors Snow Me White.  I think the glitter thumb would have looked better and added dimension if I had used Teal the Cows Come Home under it.  I think the best gardient was probably my pointer finger on my left hand- it was the second one I did!
