Lorac palette and EOTD

This Lorac palette came from Sephora and is $55. I knew the second I saw this palette in person I had to have it! It is fantastic, the color pay off is great and the case is adorable. The only thing I don't like about it is the lip pencil. This EOTD is from the row with the black and silver in it. This would be awesome for traveling, each page has a mirror.

Aromaleigh EOTD 12/8/09

This turned out quite well for 5am. I love Aromaleigh, there colors blend so easily and look wonderful. I love that they offer samples for a dollar and every week there are various sales for 25% off. You only need a $5 minimum and they get shipped for FREE and you get your choice of 3 free shadow samples. You really can't get much better than that. They typically ship in 24-48 hours and come cutely packaged in colorful tissue paper.

Under Brow - Fiona


Clinique 12/09

I purchased the gift set called Let your lashes say more: Long, Limited Edition  which included the Dual-Ended Cream Shaper for Eyes in Starry Plum/Cocoa Shimmer, Lash Power Mascara in Black,  All About Eyes it came with the clear bag. It was $20.00 (a $40 value). I also got the Take The Day Off makeup remover for lashes and lips. This stuff works really well, especially on mascara. I also got free shipping and a free gift with purchase which included the cute flower blush, the brush the small mascara, a lip stick and the pink bag. Total with free shipping was around $39. Look closely and you will see a model in the photo. =)

Silk Naturals thoughts and EOTD

Silk Naturals is one of my favorite cosmetic companies. They sell various things such as skin care, lip glosses and various clones from MAC and Bare Escentuals. The lip glosses are really awesome, as of right now it's my favorite brand of lip gloss. Some of my other favorites are extra light peach Sleep In A Jar - really helps with the dark purple circles on fair skin, Date Bait - an awesome finishing powder that makes your skin look more alive and the Brown Sugar and Vanilla lip scrub. A little bit of lip scrub goes a long way, it smells and taste wonderful and works really well at exfoliating your lips. After using the lip scrub, their Devil's Food or Southern Praline lip balm are a dream to put on. They both smell delicious and are very moisturizing. I have the Chocolate-Orange balm coming and will review that later. Some of my favorite blushes are Stardust, Cosmic and Lady. The always stay true to color and never turn orange and the samples in a jar are only $1.25. My favorite lip gloss is Black Dahlia - it's in their vegan line and is a gorgeous color.  I will also be getting a sample of foundation and will review that at a later time.

Now for the shadows! They are so nice. All the ones I have tried are very nice with complex shimmers. The only bad thing about them is that you can't buy samples. They are only $4 for a small jar and if you don' like it they take returns (same with the lip glosses). Oh, and if you spend $10 they will send you a free surprise shadow. AND for every $30 you spend you get a free shadow of your choice. Also, their shipping and handling is some of the cheapest around!! My favorite shadows are the Smokey Plum Quad.

In this look I am wearing Hint on the lid, Fete in the crease and Sprite under the brow. It looks SO much better in person. I would highly recommend Fete and Sprite. This is a very pretty neutral look.

Meow Cosmetics - EOTDs

I really like Meow Cosmetics eyeshadows. I love that they have samples for only a dollar per baggie and they often have sales. If you get 35 or more baggies the shipping is free. Otherwise, I think it cost way too much and would rather order a few shades from Aromaleigh, who offers free shipping on their baggies with a $5 minimum order. I will do some eye looks with them soon. I will also be getting a bunch of Meows new/reissued Christmas colors so stay tuned for some more EOTDs with those beautiful shades. =)

Urban Decay 24/7 Liners and Wallpaper Palette

This is what I got with the 30% off coupon code. The Wallpaper Palette is so cute! The only thing I don't like about it is the usual glitter fallout, but that was to be expected. The 24/7 liners are pretty small. I really like them though. :) The glide on and stay put. The eye look is done with Chopper, Smog and Shotgun. The liner I used is Rockstar. I am very satisfied with my purchase. I just love all the UD palettes.

Hard Candy - Love Bug

I purchased a few Hard Candy items from Walmart the other day. This eyeshadow duo is called Love Bug and it was $6. It is from the Kaleyedescope line. I LOVE this product. It is beautiful. It does have a little fall out, but since I have learned to put my foundation on LAST it's not a big deal to me.


Poppy Coach Handbag and Wristlet

My new Coach Handbag and Wristlet. I love them. :) They are from the Poppy Collection.
The handbag is very roomy and love the bright teal lining. It's supposed to be a cross body bag, but I feel it is too large to do that. My favorite thing about it is the "shoe strings" that go up both sides. The serve no purpose, but I think it's cute.


I wasn't going to purchase this wristlet, but I decided I wanted something small that I can carry around. I love this wristlet, probably more than the purse because I can take it anywhere. It fits my license and credit cards, a cell phone and some chapstick. I also was able to put my keys in it but it was a tight squeeze.

Konad, attempts one and two

Attempt #1
Plate M32

Attempt 2
Plate M36
Used Pure Ice Nail polish for both the base and the stamp

Konad 11/23/09

I used one of my new Sally Hansen nail polishes. This shade is Gunmetal. It's a lovely blue/gray shade. It took two coats and seemed to take a while to dry.
Image plates are 57 and 32. White polish is the special Konad polish.

Sally Hansen Haul

While I was at Target I decided to pick up some new nail polish. I have never tried this kind, but these colors are very interesting!

Clinique haul

This is my most recent Clinique purchase. The pink box has the shadows, makeup remover, dual wand mascara, a small lip gloss and some moisturizer. I bought it at, but can also be found here at for $36. I also bought some pore minimizer and got a free gift with purchase.
The pore minimizer works beautiful with their foundation as well as mineral foundation. It really helps minimize the pores and help fill in the fine lines. I highly recommend it!! :)

 This look is done using the pink and brown shades.
