Today, The Beauty Blog Network, for which I am a proud member, launched a new monthly online beauty magazine yesterday The Beauty Ideal. Just in time for the new year!

One of the greatest things about The Beauty Ideal, is that all of the articles are written by Beauty Blog Network members and each month features a new beauty editor, another member as well. You will definitely want to check it out!

I definitely recommend the Gentle Fume Eye Shadow Quad, as I love it and use it when going out at night for a dark and sultry eye look. The Feline Kohl Power Eye Pencil is one of my staples too. While I do not use an eyeliner pencil that often, when I reach for one, this is the one I reach for. Products that are also in my makeup collection from the list are the Tinted Lipglass in Our for Fun and Soft & Slow, the Eye Shadow in Stormwatch and Thunder, as well as the Lipstick in Danse.
