I have tons of ish on my mind, so I'm going to be starting a new blog soon...it'll be a lot more personal and probably a tad more random lol. Oh, and I'll definitely be keeping this one up!
I'll post a link when it's up and running and those of you who'd like to follow that one are more than welcome!
Hey Ya'll! Long time no blog, right? Yes I know! I still haven't got my computer issues squared away, so until I do I'll just keep commenting and posting when I can :-/
Ol' girl looks a hot, sticky mess...but too each his/her own, I guess! I think I'll have to pass on this collection!!!!! There are product photos over at Temptalia... the only thing that appeals to me in the least are the shadesticks.. simply because I don't own any.
I know I promised to keep up with my blog, and I promise I have plenty of stuff to share incl. more makeup hauls and CLOTHES!!!! But my laptop has a virus!!!!!!!!!!! :::oh nO!::::
I'm getting it fixed, and I will be back to regular posting shortly, for the time being...I'll review a couple of items I've recently purchased!
Stay tuned!!! ;)
Okay so I finally received my package from MAC which included my Dame Edna stuff...and I must say that I am extremely happy with the items that I ordered =)
I am still in love with the purple packaging! I ordered: The Wisterio trio, Gladiola l/s, & Hot Frost l/g.
SWATCHES!!!I can not WAIT to wear Gladiola(right) and Hot Frost(left)! When I ordered it, I honestly didn't think that it would fit my skin tone, but it does and I am ecstatic! I never wear bright lip color, so I'll do a FOTD with these reaalllyy soon!
NEXT UP!! Walgreens had a crazy clearance sale going on and I snatched up quite a few things and of course I had to share em' with ya'll!!! (YES ''ya'll'' lol)
I got: (2) Revlon lip palettes in Caramelt & RSV Pink, (3) Covergirl Trueshines in Coral Shine, Watermelon Shine, & Fire Shine, A Revlon shadow/liner duo in Set the Nude, Revlon blush in Hushed Blush (to be used as a highlight), Milani Sunset (bronzer/ blush) duo in Sunset Beach, & 3 sets of Wet N Wild lashes in Vivacious and Flirtatious (not pictured).Top to bottom: Fire shine, Watermelon Shine, & Coral Shine. All of the CG Trueshines are pretty sheer but have buildable coverage. I'm trying to expand my lipstick collection and I'm very happy with these =)
This is the liner/shadow duo. The frosty beige color seems like it may be a good brow highlight. I'll have to try to liner, not sure how its "marble-ly goodness" will work on the lashline lol.The Milani bronzer is good for this time of year. It seems like everyday I wake up a little paler than the day before so anything that adds a little bit of warmth definitely helps!
The revlon blush is pretty light, definitely couldn't be used for anything other than a highlight (on me anyway), but I couldn't beat getting an $11 blush for $2!!!
FINALLY!!! I got a few misc. items that I had been eyeing for a while and/or needed to replenish.I had to get a new crystal nail file b/c I gave my Mommy the last one =) I also purchased Sally Hansen Diamond Shine base coat/top coat (Nail Post coming soon!!). I got one of the new Revlon Matte eyeshadows in Lushious Lime( i THINK thats the name...I could be wrong lol I'm @ work!!), Nivea creme for my purse, and FINALLY got the Loew Cornell brushes! They are supposedly dupes for the Mac shader brushes. I am very happy with them they are extremely soft and I can't wait to use them. Look for the purple handle!!!
Okay THAT IS IT!!! Sorry for the long post but I wanted to show ya'll all of the stuff I've got in the last couple of days!!!!
Have a great Weekend!!!!!!!
I am really feeling these....
I have always loved heels, but I used to be self-conscious b/c I'm kinda tall, but NOW....u can't tell me nuthin! I will be struttin in these asap.
Click here to buy =)
Hey Ladies =)
So I ordered: The Wisteria Trio, Gladiola l/s, & Hot Frost l/g...I really wanted a nice bright lip stick because I usually stray away from anything with color, but I want to try somethin new for 09! lol...So HOPEFULLY I'll have enough guts to rock Gladiola...if not it's always a nice color to have in my kit =)
Check out Ren Ren's tutorial using the Wisteria Trio here
Oh and I'm definitely on a roll! I even have a FOTD to share =) Yay me!!!!What I used:
Eyes: Loreal Decrease(waste!), ?Lavender/Lilac? NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Loose e/s (lid), Mac Fig. 1 (crease, lower lashline), Mac Carbon (outer V, slightly blended into crease), Mac Ricepaper (brow highlight), Revlon Colorstay Liquid Line, CG Perfect Blend black Eye Pencil, CG Lash Blast
Brows: Mac Espresso, NC45 Studio Finish Concealer
Face: NC45 Studio Finish Concealer, NYX Concealer in a Jar-yellow, MAC Select SPF 15 Finish Foundation NC44, Maybelline Mineral Power in Translucent(to set)
Cheeks: Bonnebell Powder Bronzer in Golden Tan, Revlon Blush in Pinking of You
Lips: Milani Lip Pencil in Satin Rose, Milani l/s in Dolce Vita, Avon l/g in Peony Pink
I forgot to use my Mineralize Skinfinish....and I am thinking of changing foundations....I wanna try Studio Fix Fluid and/or MUFE HD Foundation...not feeling my current one anymore...makes me look weird lol And just a brief rant...L'Oreal Decrease sucks..for me anyway...After it's gone I'm either gonna try Too Faced Shadow Insurance or UDPP....might as well spend an extra $10...my eyeshadow needs to stay put!
I hope you all enjoyed!!!!
As i said before I made a video, edited the video using Windows Movie Maker and could not figure out how to convert the file..things like this usually come easy, but I guess I'll have to play around with it a bit more!! My video included my most recent mac haul...I didn't take pics and all that "jazz" b/c I plan on figuring out how to convert it! I.will.not.give.up
Just to fill ya'll in....
Everything has been going great lately...I have decided that Blogger is definitely the business! Without it I wouldn't have connected with my blog "fam" and I wouldn't have been able to meet Ms. Brandi, an UBER talented MUA in my area (Which is very hard to find) As most of you know, I live in Detroit....the fashion/makeup industry is little to none here, so finding a mentor to actually teach you the ropes is highly unlikely. (check out some of her work here and check out her blog X-Quisite Looks) I will be her assistant, helping out with photo shoots, weddings, runway shows and whatever else may come up. I am soooo excited and I'll be sure to take plenty of pics and keep you all filled in.
For whatever reason, I've been doing lots of makeup (on myself and a couple others) but have been slacking on my picture taking!!! So all I have to leave you with is a picture of me on NYE.
I didn't do anything to dramatic because my outfit didn't scream Happy New Year. So I rocked a pale gold(finally got some use outta one of my NYX loose pearl mania shadows!) and a slightly smoke out gray e/s...my left eyebrow looks really odd now that I look at this, but on 12/31/08...I was happy with it LOL
I'm sorry it took me sooo long to update this, I feel so bad and I've missed blogging so much! But...I guess that's what happens when you STILL don't have internet @ your apartment! Hopefully I'll get the hang of this video thing really soon!!! My next post will definitely be more interesting ladies! Sry!
New Years Resolution:
**I resolve to update my blog on the REGULAR!
New post coming tomorrow.
Happy New Year Lovlies =.)
edit: Okay sooo. I tried uploading a video to blogger AND youtube but it didnt work out. Anyone who is good with that stuff PLLLEEAASSSEE help!
