Manicure Monday!

Happy Monday gals! It’s been a pretty long day but I wanted to share my new manicure with you. It is Mani Monday! This week, I decided to keep things short and sweet with a nice file down and two coats of Zoya Gie Gie nail polish. I was actually a little lost on what I wanted to do with my nails this week until I started rummaging through my old Ipsy Glam Bags. I’ve really been finding some hidden gems in my stash!

MAC Playland Lipstick Review

Talk about a gift and a curse! Playland is such a fun, unique lipstick from MAC but it takes a lot of work to get right. My goodness! I prayed to the makeup gods that Playland would play nice with my lips like the ever so lovely Viva Glam Rihanna but it’s a whole new ballgame with this one.

Milani Pink Rave Lip Intense Review

It’s so easy to fall for Milani. Especially with great lippies like Pink Rave! I’ve a tried a couple of the Lip Intense Liquid Lip Colors before but Pink Rave is easily my favorite. Fiery Coral was quite the hassle. Violet Addict was much better and the color is beautiful but it still didn’t wear as fabulously as Pink Rave. This lip color is just perfection! Continue reading

MAC Playland Haul & More Swatches!

I’m back with more swatches! I really had good intentions on not going crazy with the MAC Playland Collection but naturally that backfired. Bright lippies just get me excited! I managed to pick up Playland lipstick, Happy Go Lucky lipstick, Pure Silliness lip glass and Brightside lip glass in store. But I also scored Red Balloon and Toying Around lipsticks online from Nordstrom. I’m so naughty! But it feels so good!

MAC Playland Collection Swatches

 photo IMG_20140417_074637.jpgI had like the longest day ever! I rushed out of the door super early for a ton of shopping. Makeup shopping. Truck shopping. Sheesh! Talk about fun yet stressful! I’m just glad that it’s finally over. Oh, and that I scored some new lippies and found a new truck. Yay! As you probably guessed, I’m beyond exhausted but I didn’t want to dissolve into my bed until I shared some swatches with you guys. I’ll admit. They were a little rushed since I was under a tight schedule but I’ll have a few more coming your way soon. In the meantime, enjoy!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Now Permanent!

The good news just keeps flowing this week! I went nuts after missing out on the limited edition Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette when it released during the holidays last year. Can you imagine my excitement now that it’s permanent this year? I couldn’t be happier! I know limited edition makes everything seem so elusive and magical like unicorns but I actually dislike when the good stuff isn’t permanent. It just makes things more difficult than they need to be. Makeup shouldn’t be so darn complicated! Thank goodness that Hourglass (like MAC) has decided to give us another chance.

I’ve really been digging the Revlon Legacy Collection these days! Icy Violet turned out to be quite the shimmery treat and Snow Peach isn’t too bad either. It’s such a beautiful color for spring and summer. Take a peek! Continue reading

Milani Bella Rosa Matte Baked Blush Review

Milani isn’t all about awesome lipsticks and gloss. They’re pretty good at making blush too! I’ve been a fan of their baked blushes for quite some time so I was really excited when Milani decided to add some matte colors to the line. I really hope to see some new shades soon because I’m loving the formula so far! Continue reading
