Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Eye Duo

Avon's Professional Eye Duo wands help take the guess work out of eye liners and shadows. Jillian Dempsey pairs 4 shadows with 4 different complimentary liners to make your life easier.

Normally I stay away from liquid shadow, but this one has a powder finish, dries quick, and doesn't crease by the end of the day. I applied the shadow all the way up to my eyebrow bone, it's quite sheer, and works as a highlighter too.

The liner is also fast drying, and the brush that it comes with for application is super thin, and makes for easy application.

The 2 in 1 eye makeup wand is perfect for traveling too, helping to cut down on the size of my makeup bag :)

It comes in the following color combos:
White eyeshadow comes with Jet Black eye liner.
Shell Pink eyeshadow comes with Warm Brown eye liner (this is the one that I tried and I loved it!)
Gold eyeshadow comes with Jet Black eye liner.
Bronze eyeshadow comes with Warm Brown eye liner.

Giveaway Break - Cellies

When asked what item I would want with me if stranded on an island, the first thing that comes to mind is my cell phone! Not only is it on me all the time, but it's starting to feel like a permanent accessory! The first thing I had to get when buying my new cell phone as a sleek black case for it. You know, so it would match all my outfits!

Designer Andrea Behar had a similar thought. She created Cellies, a stylish stretch cuff bracelet that easily slips on your wrist that allows cell phone users to conveniently wear their cell phones. Why not make cell phones part of your everyday wardrobe?

The Cellies Story
"No matter how convenient cell phones are, they are quite a nuisance to carry around. I created Cellies because I needed something to solve a real problem I was having," says Andrea. "I was either missing calls because I couldn't hear my phone ringing or feel it vibrating in my bag. I would also try to tuck it discreetly inside my bra strap because I didn't want to hold it in my hands all the time; or put it down somewhere and misplace it. I wanted something that allowed me to carry my phones hands-free and still be able to access it. The only options were bulky belt clip-ons."

Available colors: Black, Pink, White & Blue. If you're buying a new cell phone, or buying a cell phone as a gift, this is the perfect stocking stuffer and accessory.
