Welcome to my World of Beauty and Reviews!

I finally got my hands on the infamous INGLOT 10 Freedom System palette. I decided to play around with it today and came up with a look and I have to say these shadows are amazingly pigmented!

New Vanity Mirror!

It is incredibly bright and I think it came out Amazing!

Polish Hoarders Anonymous!

So the 1st step in any program is admitting we have a problem...

NOTD ( Nail of the Day)

Hello fellow Bloggies so I decided to dress up my nails today . Nothing too fancy but got tired of this winter weather giving me an excuse to just let my nails go to blah! So a Fellow Bloggie who I follow and Admire sent me a few surprises and I had been wanting these for a while and never got around to getting them . Her page is Amazing and she is such a talented makeup artist from Arizona. Check out her Page.

She is so awesome and down to earth and truly appreciate her sending me these awesome goodies.

These Eyeko Polishes are absolutely adorable and the color payoff is amazing. Now they are a London based company so shipping takes a while. They have the most adorable cosmetics and always have special w freebies included. It also pays to be an Ambassador ( which I am click on the Pink Banner on the Right)

Here is the Coral Polish. Decided to get in the Valentin's day Spirit an also Use the New Hello Kitty Stamping plate that I got for FREEEEE! I repeat for FREEE!

Click on the Link and you will see!

I also decided to give another nail product a try . Another fellow Blogger I follow named Asami reviewed an item recently and I said I just had to try it as well. She is amazing at what she does and has helped me every step of the way when it had come to blogging and starting a site of my own .

This is Her video not mine. She is the only person I have seen review this product so she deserves the credit she did awesome!
She goes into a lot more detail of how exactly it works and you could get a better idea through her video and tutorial. It is a bit prices for what it is though $20 plus shipping but I thought it was great especially for someone like me where my on hand shake still when I am working on the non dominant hand.

Basically what it is for is to help keeping your cuticles clean when polishing. I know with especially red or Black Polishes if you get too close to your cuticle it isn't so easy to wipe clean or get such a neat application.

So you paint this all around the cuticles aka areas you do not want the polish to be. It goes on as a Light Lilac color when wet ( Pinky) then dries to a Darker purple when dry. It dries like a liquid rubber and then you just apply your polish and no need to worry if you bump p against the cuticle because you now have a barrier . Let the Polish Dry and Voila Peel away the Liquid Palisade and Nice and Clean Manicured nails and Cuticles left.

Artistry Lip Gloss from Amway

Hi everyone so I recently came across a product that I am in love with and I think is just Genius!

Scenario: You are at a Night Club or Lounge and you go to reach for you favorite lipgloss to touch up. Now you may carry a mirror with you but if you are on the dance floor and having a great time and because the lights are so dim you cant see what your doing. So what do you do? I use to stop dancing or go to my table dig through my purse and look for a mirror or my phone for lighting or get on the dreadful line to the ladies room to only be bumping my elbows with other women trying to touch up there makeup too. Well with this product no need to wait on long lines or stop what you doing:

Low and Behold the Lipgloss with a Built In Light and Mirror!!!

I recently Ordered this product from a good friend of mine and here is the direct link to his site:

I like this lipgloss it doesn't have the sticky feeling on the lips and is definitely a staple in every girls purse for a night out on the town .

It has a slight shimmer to it and is a bit sheer but would go great over any lipstick !

Organizing my Lippies and Compacts

So I recently realized that I am the  typical person that if something is out of sight it is definitely out of mind. So many lovely lip glosses and Lipsticks hidden away in my vanity and weren't getting the use they deserved.  My Compacts were also an issue because of the Bulkiness
So got a Little Creative and...

        I went to the Container Store with one of my Trusty Compacts in hand and went into the Kitchen Cutlery Section. This little organizer is typically for forks, knives etc. Was perfect Size for all of my MSF's and Elf Blushes etc.

Fit Perfectly in my Ikea Vanity Table Drawer

Nothing too exciting here but I used  the Box my order from 
to organize  some of my Lip glosses and Lip Glasses etc.

Next to it I also purchased a Lip Stick Organizer that holds up to 24 Lipsticks !

Hope this is helpful ladies. Let me know what else you would like me to do or what you would like to see in my upcoming posts. Love Feedback!

Revlon Colorstay Aqua

NEW Colorstay Aqua™ Mineral Makeup delivers a burst of hydrating coconut water and an instant cooling sensation upon application. The result: your skin looks luminous and its texture smoother. With a shine-free formula that’s made with water, not oil, this lightweight powder gives you a fresh, flawless finish that lasts all day.

Fragrance free and non-irritating.

Provides medium coverage in 8 beautiful shades, with SPF 13 protection.

I recently purchased this because I was intrigued by the whole Coconut Water and how how Hydrating is says it would be. I love this new Foundation. I am currently battling a small war with the winter and my Rosacea has been acting up and I have some slight redness on my cheeks. This doesn't give full coverage but the feeling of this stuff on my skin is amazing. The best way to describe it is you know when you spray fix + and you feel that cool and refreshing sensation? IWell that is exactly how this feels going on to the skin its like I spritz my face with Cold water. 
Comes with a pretty cute brush 

Overall the Brush is pretty dense and is useful for travel but I do not use it to apply the foundation.
Loving this foundation but it does not offer full coverage. and I am sure will feel great on a Hot Summer day!

Some Product I am loving and Some I am not :-(

Ok Ladies so I know all of us have a Vanity of Lotions and Potions but are we really getting the benefits or are they just looking pretty there.

                                             Some of My items on my Vanity:
Note the Purple Tray from my Naked Palette Packaging! It Perfectly Organizes All my Bottles and the Side for my Garnier Fructis Roller Ball

Some of my Foundations:

Most of you recognize the Makeup Forever and Mac Studio Fix Fluid

My Shade in MUFE is #127 but I think I wasn't matched correctly too light I think . I also found that in Pictures I get a White Cast and see a significant difference between my neck and Face not good!

Mac Shade NC40 I like the coverage but not the Breakouts. I first was exposed to Mac Foundations for my wedding and this was my face after makeup:

I loved the Finish but the little breakouts I had the next day weren't worth it to me.
My mekeup Artist was Amazing overall but not having luck with Mac face products.

Here are the Drugstore Foundations I am in love with right now:

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation and Neutrogena HealthySkin
My Bare Minerals Matte ( Obviously not Drugstore but forgot to include before)

I really Like how these foundations feel , Blend and the Coverage is awesome. And so far No Breakouts!

My Neutrogena Shade
Wearing Neutrogena Today!

My Rimmel Shade Looks really Dark but I assure you matches completely!
I use this on a daily basis for a quick get up and go and I love the flawless Finish

Now some of my Holy Grail Skincare Items. Recently I became familiar My Pretty Pink Box and I recieved a few of these Items in the Box and they are AMAZING!!!

This is an Amazing Lip Butter. Super Creamy and makes my Lips soooo Soft. This was in my Pretty Pink Box and the company is called Derma Allay


The Next 2 products I use Every Morning and Evening after washing my Face:

Info about this Lotion:

This Luxurious and mild lotion is so mild on your skin we had to classify it as baby lotion. This gentle formulation contains aloe vera, grape seed oil, and coconut oil. Use it every day. Use it everywhere. Works well with all skin types. As this formulation is unscented, it is extremely popular with people who have sensitive skin, allergies, and especially for those who do not want their moisturizer to clash with their perfume.

" If you can't Put it in your Body don't put it on your Body" !!

This Next item was also in my Pretty Pink Box and Has Helped my Skin Significantly:

It has a serum type of feel to it and I put it on right before my Neckid Lotion.


This Bad boy is my got to Pimple Gadget. It administers heat directly to the pimple area. If I use it the minute I feel a pimple coming by the next morning it is virtually gone!

Ok so for some Sad news. My Mac Brush Cleaner:

Ok so I use this to spot clean my brushes as I am using them daily and I find that it doesn't work so well with White Brushes

After several attempts with my Black Eyeshadow :-(

What actually did work thanks to my buddy and fellow Beauty Blogger 

All White and Completely Spotless. Granted I did wash it and wasn't expecting my Mac Brush Cleaner to be a " Miracle cleaner but no matter how many times I washed it with baby shampoo never would come out!

                                                            My 1st Sleek Palette!

This is sort of hard to get your hands on because they are based out of London.
I like the Color Selection however you really have to dig in the pans to get the color:

Last but not Least some Hair Treatments and Products I am Loving:

Moroccan Oil aka Argan Oil has been a Godsend for this Curly Head

This priduct smells amazing. It has helped tame my frizz. I had been a Gel and Hairspray girl for nearly 10-12 years. Nothing tamed these locks. Ever since I began using these I cant remember the last time I purchased and Gel or Hairspray! Seriously this is all I put in my Hair!

This is the Deep Repair Mask

It is Incredibly thick and a little goes a very long way. It is a bit more pricey than the average argan oil products. This bad boy will run from $35-$60 so do your research to get a good deal!

See how thick even upside down doesn't run or drip!

Hoping this helps you all Let me know what you would like to see or any advice welcomed!
