I LOVE gel eyeliner, but I don't want to spend a fortune on it- particularly on a brand I've never tried before.
Two Cosmetics sells their gel liner in 4 shades: Electric (bright blue), Passion (purple), Royalty (bright teal), and Up in Smoke (pretty grey); for $5 each. They also carry a gel liner brush, for $6.50.
First of all: holy cow- that's an awesome price! Paired up with Ipsy's 25% off, it's a phenomenal deal- $3.75 for gel liner!!! Count me in! In addition to this awesome deal, Two Cosmetics donates a beauty product to a local (to them) charity for each product purchased!
I only ordered one, and now I'm sorry that I didn't get more- Ipsy's 25% off deal only works once. I wish I had read the small print first!

Once I opened my packet and saw the eye liner brush, I hopped online and checked Two Cosmetics website to see if my liner was SUPPOSED to come with a brush, and as it doesn't say that it is, I assume that this was a special extra or a mistake (or maybe they put one brush in with each gel liner order?). First off, I LOVE the color.

My gift with purchase, courtesy of my Ipsy code, was the Two Lips gloss, in the shade Sunkissed. I was not able to choose the color of my free gloss, but this is a pretty coral color. I tried it out, and it has pretty sparkles in it (micro glitter, not big chunks!), and it is not sticky at all. It's rather sheer, and adds just a hint of color:

I layered it over pink lipstick, and it gave my lips a really pretty multi-tonal look. I'm not sure if this is my new go-to gloss, but I think it will definitely make it into my beach bag this summer!
All in all, I am absolutely THRILLED with my purchase from Two Cosmetics- I just wish I could use the 25% off code again and get more! (I'd be totally fine with not getting another free lippie- I'm thrifty, not greedy!)
If you would like to score this deal, go HERE;and use the Ipsy code I used, from my April Glam bag (my review is HERE): IPSTER (valid until 5/20/13, while supplies last).
If this is up your alley, head on over to Two Cosmetics and check them out. I know that there has been controversy in the past, but it seems to me that they are working to resolve past issues and provide excellent service, and great prices.
So, tell me: have you ordered from Two Cosmetics, or tried their products before? Leave me a comment, and let me know what YOU think!
