$7 MAC Paint Pots?

28 Feb

It seems like I’m always in a hurry in the mornings.  After I get done washing my face, I slap some primer on my face and lids, throw on some random colors from my Naked Palette and finish the rest in the car.  Wouldn’t it be nice to find an eyeshadow that’s also a primer?  Well, I’ve found just that.

Lets take a look!  It may save you a few precious minutes in your rushed mornings! Continue reading

Glam To Go, perf for when you’re on the go!

18 Jan

I feel like I’m always on the go.  I wish I had 45 mins to primp myself every morning (actually more like 2 hours if I’m being honest), or even BETTER… have a beauty team that preps ME!  However, I’m not a Kardashian.  I work full time and everything else in my life is squeezed in between that.  Keeping Up with the Kardashians = reality tv?  Puh-leease!

For us gals on-the-go, boy do I have a treat for you.

Lets take a peek (if you have time)… Continue reading

How To Repress Broken Eyeshadows

10 Dec

Sleeping past your alarm and rushing into work is a bummer.  Stubbing your toe is a bummer.  Overeating and then hating your self with self remorse … is a bummer (unless it’s Chipotle).  Do you know what the biggest bummer of all is?

Broken eyeshadows.  Yeah, I know.  Serious stuff.  I saw you flench when you read that.

I placed an order online through Stila, when my package arrived I excitedly ripped open the package and started digging in.  Everything was dandy until:

Oh the horror!  I shake my fist at you, US Postal Service!

After overcoming my feelings of sadness and anger, I picked myself back up and got to work- and I put it back together  How?  Take a look!  Continue reading

Naked 2 Palette, swatches and comparisions

8 Dec

If you recall about a week ago I posted some hardcore breaking news on here: Urban Decay was coming out with a sequel to their classic Naked palette, the Naked 2.  The world stood still for a moment.

The original Naked Palette came out in the summer of 2010 and took the make-up world by storm.  It’s a sleek, well designed neutral palette containing 12 full size (0.5oz) eyeshadows for $45.   That equals to less than 4 bucks per eyeshadow (which normal costs $17 for 0.5 oz.).  Genius, Urban Decay, genius.

They were smart to come out with a sequel, because I sure took that bait… I was one of the lucky 5,000 to purchase one the weekend that it came out.  So… is it worth the hype?

Lets take a look!  Continue reading

Too Faced Sweet Dreams, Holiday 2011 Palette, Review

25 Nov

There are so many things to love about the holiday season.  Time with family, good food, decorations, dressing my dog up like an elf, and…. holiday make-up!  It’s one of the best times to branch out and try new brands because lots of the companies will put together several products and put a low price tag on it.

One of the palettes I was most excited to try out was the Too Faced Sweet Dreams Makeup Collection, exclusively at Sephora ($52).  It features 15 eyeshadows (0.3oz ea), 2 blushes (0.8oz ea), 1 bronzer (0.14oz), and 1 highlighter (0.14oz).  It’s a $186 value.

Check it out! Continue reading

theBalm and The Beautiful, Swatches

19 Nov

Happy Saturday everyone!  Due to the new Muppets movie coming out, the beauty world has come out with several Muppet themed products.  From OPI’s Muppet nail polish, to the Miss Piggy for MAC collection (if you can even call it a “collection”), and, my favorite, theBalm Cast Your Shadow Face Palette.

The palette contains 16 eye shadows, 2 lip/cheek stains, and 1 lip gloss and retails for $44.50.  The packaging is so adorable with the Muppets theme, as well as the names of all of colors.  But here’s the catch… they only made 1,000 of them.

After reading Temptalia’s review of this palette I longed for it, I wanted it so much!  Much to my dismay, I was not one of the lucky 1,000 recipients…

But do not worry, I didn’t stay sad for long.  theBalm made another palette, almost identical to the Muppets themed one!  It’s their holiday 2011 palette, theBalm and The Beautiful.  This palette is soap opera themed, and cleverly so.  It features the same amount of products and the colors are (almost) identical.
