One of my favorite things.....


Am I one of the only people who hasn't tried these flip flops?  I bought a couple of pairs of HAVAIANAS a couple of days ago at a friend's store.  They are amazing!  I thought to myself, "what's the big deal?"  Aren't they just flip flops?
NO! They are so comfortable, and they come in so many amazing styles.  Even better, they are affordable!

New Handbag!

I'm so excited about this new bag that I just purchased from Sylvia's Handbags!  I think it's beautiful!  It's a Melie Bianco bag with a leather like feel (it feels great though), it's trendy and just lovely!  I couldn't see myself spending hundreds of dollars on a bag since I'm trying to save up for IMATS NYC, and this bag was really affordable.  I'm really happy with it.  I searched for this bag on other sites, but they were all sold out.  I finally found it, and I picked it up!

Whatcha think?

Review: Sugarpill Chromalust Loose Eyeshdows


Hello!  I'm so excited to share with you my Sugarpill swatches!  If you haven't heard already, Sugarpill Cosmetics is a new independent cosmetics brand.  If you want a little more info, check out my first Sugarpill review HERE

I couldn't pass up the 20% off sale for Sugarpill's anniversary.  I had picked up three loose eyeshadows during last years black Friday sale, so this time I decided to get all the rest of the loose eyeshadow colors.  I couldnt' get my hands on one red loose eyeshadow.  For some reason I can no longer find it on the website :(  I wonder if it's been discontinued...  Also, I forgot to take a pic of Goldilux, forgive me!  That color is included in the swatches though.

Please click on the pics for a closer view :)















I swatched these without an eyeshadow primer.  As you can see, they are crazy pigmented!  That's using just one swipe! And talk about adhesion!
(Please click on the pics for a closer look)








I think my favorites are definitely Goldilux, Magpie, and Darling.  The quality of these loose eyeshadows are amazing.  I did have slight trouble with some of the eyeshadows that have big chunky glitter such as Stella and Royal Sugar.  Those two colors are gorgeous, but the large glitter had a tendency to rub off.  It may have been because I was not using a shadow primer.  Nonetheless, these shadows are beautiful and worth you looking into.  Especially if you have a love affair with color!

MAC: Wonder Woman Haul!!

       
        

This collection has a very wide range of products...many of which are jumbo sized!!  You are getting nearly double the amount of product for the MSF's, blushes and lipglasses...but you are paying a price increase for this aswell.  I personally like the size of the MSF's, they are huge, but it makes it easier to access and use all the colors.  However, I do not see the need of a super sized lipglass, I can barely finish a regular sized one before it's time to chuck it out.  Let alone try and finish a huge tube like they have for this collection!!  I was also pleasantly pleased to see the repromotion of Marquise D lipstick...Love's It! :)  
But the star of the show for me, were the colored mascaras!!  I just had to have the purple (Victorious) and green (Army of Amazons) ones! Meh...I personally didn't hate or love the packaging...

So what did I pick up:

1.  Valiant Eyeshadow Quad ($40.00/$48.00 CND)
  • Valiant:  Light lime with yellow pearl
  • Spinning Transformation:  Deep olive bronze with yellow pearl
  • Diana Undercover:  Dark forest green
  • Manila paper:  Pale frost white gold
2.  Blush Duo ($24.00/$29.00 CND)
  • Mighty Aphrodite:  Warm peach coral with gold pearl/bright coral pink with gold pearl
  • Amazon Princess:  Bright yellow pink/deep blue pink with gold pearl
3.  Mineralize Skinfinish ($35.00 U.S./$42.00 CND)
  • Pink Power:  Peachy rose with pink shimmer/soft rosy bronze/soft shell pink with fine shimmer
4.  Lipstick ($15.50 U.S./$18.50 CND)
  • Marquise D':  Sandy cream peach
5.  Lipglass ($19.50 U.S./$23.50 CND)
  • Emancipation:  Pale neutral pink
6.  Opulash Mascara ($15.00 U.S./$18.00 CND)
  • Victorious:  True Purple
  • Army of Amazons:  Army Green

Let us know what you picked up and what you thought of the collection!
