Urban Decay Vice Palette

Ladies this “Urban Decay Vice Palette” is a must have for your makeup collection! It contains twenty insanely gorgeous colors! Plus, it has a double sided eye shadow brush and comes in a sleek soft case that makes it easy for travel. The colors are unique, highly pigmented, and easy to blend. The only problem that I see is Urban Decay keeps costing me tons of money because they keep making AWESOME palettes!

They’re Real

They’re Real mascara by Benefit will leave people asking, “Are They Real”? I have a top 5 favorite mascara list and this one is one just made it to the top of that list! I love everything about it and its totally worth the splurge! It has a special designed brush that gets every lash and emphasizes your real lashes. Every mascara claims that they are the best and its usually a lot of hype but this one is GREAT! FYI- I always wear two mascaras because it really gives you loooooooong lashes! This particular one paired up with my YSL Faux Lash gives me extremely long, curled and full lashes.
Results observed in a consumer panel survey reveals: 94% saw dramatic length & volume, 90% saw base to tip curl, 94% saw visible lift, and 100% saw long-wearing results!

Nars Eyes

Nars Trio Eyeshadow “High Society” is their Fall Limited Edition and I’m digging the harmonious green and purple eyeshadow shades. These colors can be worn together or alone. I also purchased the green eye liner “Rue De Rivoli” to wear with the trio. My eyes tend to change color depending on what I’m wearing from blue to green and sometimes they almost look grey. Applying these colors with the green eye liner make my eyes pop! 🙂 I will try and post an eye with the colors later!
FYI: These colors look great with green or brown eyes

Blue Eyes

Colored mascara is making a strong come back ever since NY Fashion Week. The Runway Models were rocking the fun look and its now the fall 2012 trend! I couldn’t wait to purchase the blue but I’m still wanting the purple and the burgundy. Just make sure when wearing it you achieve a flawless face and well groomed brows. You want a very natural looking face so that all the attention is focused on the eyes and the eyes pop! YSL, Estee Lauder, Christian Dior are just a few of the brands that carry the colored mascaras. I went with the Christian Dior Mascara “Azure Blue” and the Urban Decay eye liner “Deviant” to get the look I was gunning for. FYI.. I also put my eye liner on the inside of my top eye lid (I feel it really adds more depth). You can choose not to use eye liner but I feel with my skin tones it popped more with the eye liner. 🙂
Note: If these brands are not in your budget you can also buy a drugstore clear mascara and a super pigmented eye shadow (color of your choice and crush to powder form), roll the wand in the eye shadow and apply to your eyes!

A Few Of My Favorite Things …

Hello Weekend Warriors! My weekend was all about beauty! Saturday, I had more layers cut in my hair. Ahhh, finally it has life and body again! If your bored with your style and you don’t want to lose your length, maybe you should consider some long layers. After, my hair I had an exciting day shopping for makeup! Remember when you were a little girl and all you wanted to do was play in your mothers makeup? Well, I’m grown now and all I want to do is play in makeup. Especially, lately I’ve been makeup obsessed! I went to Mac and had my makeup done which in return sold me on buying more product and left me wanting more! HA, girl problems! I bought eye colors that I would of never gravitated towards, but my eyes popped once applied. I guess my point is…if you are unsure what will look good with your skin tones, ask! She opened my eyes (literally) to new colors. I also learned a new way of applying eye liner that really made my eyes stand out and it stayed for hours. I will share in upcoming post more about my colors and hopefully some tutorials. I am currently trying to work with a makeup artist to bring you professional tutorials!
It’s no secret that I also have a sugar obsession, its so dangerous! This is the reason I work out…;)! It’s not my fault that they place Godiva across from Mac :(. What’s a girl suppose to do? So, I snuck over and scored some brownies, macaroons, and chocolate covered oreos! WHOA! You know the rest! Yep, sugar high! Upon arriving home there was another sweet surprise awaiting for me….a Key Lime Tart! Not just any key lime tart but a Gateaux key lime tart. This bakery is seriously the BEST!
Sunday Funday was all about the Broncos. Football games are always fun, you can really feel the energy amongst the crazed fans! Some are quite humorous with their paint and attire. True die hard fans.! Well, thats a wrap for my weekend! Just a few highlights of the excitement!
Hope everyone has a healthy, happy, and productive week! XOXO

I’m addicted to anastasia products so I’m super stoked over this price! This product is awesome! It’s a clear conditioning gel that keeps your eyebrows tame and in place. I’m so addicted to anastasia eye brow products that I only let people wax my eyebrows that are trained at the anastasia school in Beverly Hills or you can buy their brow kit and do it yourself at home for perfect shaped brows. 🙂
Note: Not to be confused for me thinking other trained professionals can’t wax eyebrows. I just have a good experience with Anastasia trained professionals.

Hi Glam Girls…Sephora has some good gifts you can get with your points. I collect my points until there is something I really want and yesterday they had the next big fling! It’s the benefit “POREfressional” pore minimizer (translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put) and the “they’re Real” mascara! It’s their latest and hottest bestseller! 🙂
