Hello Again!

It's been so long and I'm sorry!  Life has just taken over!  Actually, I have also been on sort of a makeup ban these last couple of months.  But makeup is calling me back :)
I'm so excited about the Christmas collection from MAC!!  I saw these pics on, and I instantly fell in love!  I see my makeup ban ending soon....
Even though we all know those travel brush sets are not really comparable to the regular brushes, how can I resist?!

My New Project!

We will be up an running soon, so in the meantime, check out our Facebook PAGE!

Thanks, more information to come!

Boots No7 Lipsticks By Poppy King

I actually had been trying to limit my makeup purchases lately, but I saw these at my local Target and I had to have them! 

I had actually been trying to purchase some Poppy King lipsticks, but they are frequently sold out online.  I thought I would give a couple of these a try. 

In the tube, these two colors look very similar.  The one of the right is No. 2 Power and the one on the left is No. 5 Intrigue.

On the left is No.2 Power and on the right is No. 7 Intrigue.
These lipsticks are fairly sheer.  They add color to the lips, but are not extremely pigmented.  They feel very hydrating.  They were priced at about $10 each.

I'm probably a little late on the bandwagon with these.  Did any of you pick some of these up?  What colors did you get?

Review: Real Techniques Brushes

This review is long overdue!  I have had these brushes for a very long time, but I just never got around to making this review.  Let's just say that I've really used these brushes and this is a really honest opinion!  Please click on these pictures for a larger  view.

Starter Set:  This set was somewhat disappointing for me.  But, one of my favorites from this set was the deluxe crease brush.  I actually think it's a bit big for my eyes, so I have been using this brush to buff in my under eye concealer. 

Core Collection:  I love the buffing brush as well as the contour brush!  These brushes have been very useful for both blush, bronzer and even setting powder. 
I really did not like the kabuki brush.  Let's be honest, I'm a hoarder.  I have many kabuki brushes and this one is just mediocre compared to my favorites.  Some of my favorite kabuki brushes include:  MAC, Sigma, Eco tools, and Everyday Minerals.

As you can see from the photos.  I apologize for the dark background.  These are old photos and I have since them developed a couple of more tricks to taking the perfect photo.  The fibers of this kabuki are "crinkled" and not straight.  I'm not sure if this was just the kabuki that I received, but I have not seen other of the real techniques brushes look like this.  The texture of these fibers make the brush stiff and uncomfortable as compared to the other brushes in her collection. 

Honestly, there are a couple of stand outs in this collection, but I don't love all of the brushes.
The actual quality of the brushes is great. The fibers are very soft and the handles are lightweight yet very sturdy.
They are really unique brushes. I really like the way that she color coded the brushes according to their purpose.
The price point is great. Not only can you find them on the website, but also carries this brushes both online and in store. They are affordable and are amazing quality for the price.

MAC + Naturally Collection

 Hey Everyone!  Got my hands on the MAC Naturally Collection...Yaaay!  I had been looking forward to the release of this collection, mainly for the mineralized blushes!  I am a blush fiend.  I can't help it.  Blushes are a major weakness of mine :)
So what do I think about the few items I purchased from this collection...
First, lets talk about the blushes.  I was impressed by the new formulation of the MAC mineralized blushes.  All 3 of the blushes were finely milled and smooth to the touch.  To add, they all had wonderful color payoff with just one swipe.  I absolutely love the blush in Subtle Breeze,  I am roughly a NC40 (MAC foundation) and this color looks extremely natural and lovely on my skin tone.  It is more of a blue based pink, but it translates as a  natural flush on the skin.  As for Early Morning, I personally felt as though it was a little too dark and coral/orange for my skin.  I can still use it, but I have to make sure not to use a heavy hand.  Otherwise, it can easily go from looking nice to making me look like a clown.  I will be keeping it, but it is not one of my favorites.  I opted out of getting the third blush in Fresh Honey.  I have too many apricot colors that mimic this blush that are already a part of my collection.  And I felt it wasn't something that stood out to me as original.
I also picked up one of the lipsticks in A Perfect Day.  This is a beige pink nude lipcolor, that has a amplified creme finish.  Y'all know how I feel about MAC's amplified creme lipsticks!  I love and can't get enough of them.  I really like the fact that with amplified creme's, what you see is what you get!  The color itself is a tad bit lighter than I normally like, but when paired with a complementing gloss it looks great.
All these goodies can be found at
Like always the swatches are below and you can click on the pic to enlarge.

What did y'all pick up from this collection and did the products live up to your expectations?

Have a Great Day!

I think I've been digging these colors lately due to the new release of Chanel June.  It's beautiful, but I just can't bare to spend that much money on a nail polish!!  What are your thoughts?

Should I?  Or shouldn't I?  Any good dupes out there?  Give me some info!!!!

Have you entered my giveaway yet?

Where art thou Elite false lashes??

If you have been seeing some posts that I have done in the past, you know that I am a false eyelash junkie.  I just love em'!  I have so many false eyelashes, it's not even funny.  I probably have enough to last me a couple of lifetimes....

But that is besides the point.  I've been reading on several blogs about Elite Eyelashes.  I'm in Texas and we don't have Duane Reade over here, so I'm out of luck on finding these lashes.  I tried to search for them on the Internet, EBay, and Amazon.  I haven't come up with anything.

Do you have access to these lashes?  If you do, how do you like them? 

Have you entered my giveaway yet?  ENTER HERE!  Please do!  Thank you for everyone who has commented and entered.  For some reason I am having issues responding to your comments, but I appreciate you all!!
