Editor’s Picks: Arctic Zone, Flick Stick and MocoQueen Contacts

There’s been a few fun things to try out this past week, including Halloween contacts by MocoQueen, the Flick Stick eyeliner and the new Baby Innovations Convertible Diaper Bag by Arctic Zone. We had fellow mom blogger Ashleigh give the convertible diaper bag a try on her Fall adventures, learned how to use the Flick Stick eyeliner to make the perfect cat eye winged eyeliner, and took a Pennywise cosplay to the next level with creepy Halloween contacts from MocoQueen.

Baby Innovations Convertible Diaper Bag by Arctic Zone

Since I am out of the diaper zone (woohoo!), I had the Baby Innovations by Artic Zone Dual Compartment Convertible Diaper Bag sent to Ashleigh, from UnabashedlyAshley.com, to give it a test run and review. She took it to the park with her sons for a day of fun and viewing the beautiful Fall foliage in Massachusetts.

Read her full review here:


Bag details: “Walmart has introduced a convertible, universally appealing diaper bag made by leading soft-sided cooler manufacturer Arctic Zone. The Baby Innovations by Arctic Zone Convertible Diaper Bag can be carried either as a tote, a backpack or strapped onto a stroller, and has a unisex look. It features a thermal bottle pocket to keep a baby’s bottle hot or cold, an insulated bottom compartment to keep snacks fresh, 9 easy-access storage pockets and Microban® in all lined areas to help protect against bacterial odors and stains. The Baby Innovations diaper bag is available at walmart.com for $34.98 and can also be purchased at select Walmart stores nationwide.”

Halloween Contacts by MocoQueen

Spooky Season is upon us! You still have time to grab some cool Halloween lenses by MocoQueen. I’m wearing the Orange Werewolf ones here. Click Here and Save 10% with code SEWGEEKMAMA

I have several pairs of MocoQueen contacts and find them to be comfortable and easy to wear. The send little helper tools with the order that you can use to put them in, but I’ve always just put them in with my fingers. They also send a little contacts case to keep them in after you open the sealed contacts packages. The only thing you’ll need to purchase separately is contact lens solution so you can store them without drying them out. You will also use that to rinse and clean the contacts before putting them away.

You can see more of my Pennywise costume on my Instagram, and get the costume and makeup on Amazon.

The Flick Stick by Lovoir

Lovoir sent me their bestselling Flick Stick to try out, and it’s pretty neat! It has an eyeliner stamp on one side, and a regular liner on the other. They also have liners for both left and right sides.

My very first try I stamped too low and had to try again. I got it right on the second try, so there’s a small learning curve. I also discovered it has quite the staying power, as I couldn’t just wipe it off and start over. I had to use a little makeup remover cloth to get it totally gone.

The stamp was pretty easy to place (on the 2nd try) and both eyes magically matched just perfect. The eyeliner side made a pretty smooth line, although it skipped a little on my not-so-smooth eyelids. It was easy to draw over it to get it solid, without it getting clumpy.

That’s it for this round of Editor’s Picks! I’m planning on doing a longer post on the Pennywise cosplay if I can get it done before Halloween. I feel like I have a million plans to cram into a short period of time! I’m not sure how I started with 100 days to countdown and am now scrambling with 17 days left to go. I’m still finishing my costumes and trun-or-treat decorations.
