1st International Makeup Swap

Hi Loves I hope you guys are having a great start to your week. I did a makeup swap with Mercedes from MsPurpleMakeup who lives in the UK. Now you may all already know that there are quite a few makeup items not available to those that live internationally and some things from the UK that we can not get here in the states either. We decided to do a little swap and have some fun. She had asked for some Milani items and I sent her a few items for her to enjoy. I have always loved and secretly obsessed of Sleek Makeup but had a terrible experience with there customer service and not to mention how long it took for me to receive 1 palette and the shipping cost. So I secretly admired others that had items from there collection.

Unfortunately there was a major issue with the postal service from the UK to me here. I believe she got hers pretty quickly but mine however was lost in space. She emailed me shortly after I sent hers and let me know she had sent it and sent me a copy of the receipt and all etc. Lets just say we are now in November and I just received it today. I felt terrible for her because she had expressed how much work she had put into it and the goodies she had put in and well as anyone the money that was spent also on the products and shipping. She kept in touch with me periodically to find out if I had received it. It was a signed for service and can not tell you the amount of times I stayed home purposely waiting for her lil package and nothing. No notice on my door Nada!

Today my husband call me that I got a slip from USPS stating I have Final Notice! Im like WTH? I never got a 1st. Well I get to the post office and the postman is extremely rude. I ask him how does something like this happen? He asked me what took me so long to get my package. I replied I never knew I had one waiting for me this is the 1st notice I received. Well according to there records it had been sitting there since SEPTEMBER 8th!!!!!! I was livid!!!. At this point wasn't going to waste my energy speaking to this nasty man so I took it up with his boss and he apologized and well that was that.

Got this what I assumed was a head wrap or headband of some sort. Well if it wasn't' I made it that lol. I liked it and keeps my hair out of my face :-)
Had just gotten home from work so excuse not so made up face :-(

Purple Sparkle

Hi fellow bloggerista's I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and for those who participated in the Black Friday Madness much credit to you! Decided to spice things up a bit and do a fun wearable look for you all.

I was recently obsessing on Beauty Broadcast You Tube channel as I usually do and Emily had mentioned a great palette for the holidays by Smashbox called the Photo Op Palette. Click Here to go to the link.

This palette goes for $93.48

Basically the it is an amazing palette that comes with every single smash box eyeshadow color made. They are grouped together in trio's to resemble the actual trios themselves.

I dont even know how to begin describing this palette to you guys there is just so much going on and pics and swatches would take me forever!

I also had been on a hunt to find a decent glitter adhesive and I know that too Faced makes one but I was looking for more of the liquid kind. Sort of like when Foiling people use the Fix + sometimes to do that well I was wondering if they had the same sort of thing but as a glitter adhesive.

I came across an amazing site called Eye Kandy Cosmetics and I am beyond thrilled with this product. I had seen them at IMATS kinda reminds me of LIT Cosmetics.

Directly from there Site:

Ok you guys if there is anything you guys absolutely must check out is this Liquid Sugar. I can not tell you how amazing this adhesive is. Literally applied the glitter like a wet pigment and no flaking or anything. The Glitter Lasted me all night and I wear Contacts so I was a bit apprehensive with all the glitter. To my amazement not a single flake got in my Eye!
These Glitters are my own stack but I will get into a more in depth tutorial on how to use this stuff in a different post.

Excuse the Brows trying to let them grow out so I can finally get my shape going.

Before the Glitter
Frambois on the Lid
Aubergine in the Crease
Amethyst Slightly above the crease

To remove the glitter was really a breeze. I was terrified that I would have a hard time like glitter nail polish. i absolutely hate taking that stuff off my nails. But just take some makeup remover on a cotton round rest it on the lid for a little and gently swipe and it comes right off. Be gentle because the grittiness of the glitter can hurt a bit if you are too fast our rough removing it .
Again I apologize that everything is kind of all over the place with this post just haven't been feeling too well andjust hadn't had the time to go through the entire palette with you all. I hope you like let me know what you think!

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters

Hi Lovies, so I recently fell for the recent craze of the Revlon Color Burst Lip Butters . In my honest opinion they seem to be a very moisturizing lip stick. Its kind of a trick product to describe.

Price: $7
Where? Recently spotted at Target, Walgreens, Bed Bath & Beyond, Most Pharmacies
A total of I believe 20 in this collection.

Claims to leave your lips soft, moisturized and kissable.

Left to Right:
Cotton Candy
Creme Brulee
Pink Truffle
Rasberry Pie
Berry Smoothie
Tutti Frutti

Left to Right:
Tutti Frutti

Creme Brulee
Cotton Candy

Lollipop my favorite so far.

I will say when I first got them it was not love at 1st swatch. The 1st one I tried on my lips was Creme Brulee and I was so disappointed because it was so frosty and shimmery and just looked gross. I had tweeted and my favorite girly from Nouveau Cheap helped reassure me that they weren't soo bad. So I decided to give it a go and try the others. 
Are the best lippies on the planet? No I don't think so I think they are a bit over hyped in my opinion like the EOS Lip Balms I cant get myself to like those little spheres for the life of me. 
Forgive me for not doing lip swatches on them all but had a lot going on and didn't have the time.

My Thoughts:
I really liked the wearability of the butters. They are very moisturizing and make my lips feel soft. I would def do my homework before purchasing others because I am not one for Frosty and some of these are just that for me at least.

The Other Flavors they Come In:
-Berry Smoothie 050
- Brown Sugar 020
- Candy Apple 035
- Cherry Tart 070
- Cotton Candy 045
- Creamsicle 065
- Creme Brulee 095
- Cupcake 055
- Fig Jam 030
- Gumdrop 060
- Lollipop 075

- Sweet Tart 090
- Tutti Frutti 01

When Makeup Attacks!

Hi Dolls hope you are all having a great weekend. I had been trying to find a solution for all of my lipsticks and I have the Muji Drawers but I wasn't able to utilize them for my lippies because there were other thins I was using it for. I know everyone dies for the Kardashian Clear Cube and well at $300 something bucks just couldn't bring myself to do it. I love my Muji drawers but I am limited in the amount of depth I have in them . I needed something a bit deeper and well get ready gonna get picture heavy. I just started to feel like I wasn't able to see anything , some pushed to the back and I do not like to Stack things because I never see whats on the bottom

I had debated on wether or not I wanted to do this post because I worry that it may come off as "Show Off or Bragging". I assure you that is NOT my intent with this post at all. I do this to help you all and give you ideas on how to organize and simplify your beauty area and help get better use out of things you may have. I have a pretty decent collection and I do give things to family and friends when I know I will not use it just to clear the air. It took me about 2 hours to get everything the way I wanted and I started to feel some type of way that it had just spun out of control and was like WTH am I doing? After a much needed pep talk with my one and only he assured me that this is just what makes me me and to have fun . Don't owe anyone and explanation and he it comes with blogging. I don't know how Temptalia does it !

I did my homework and came up with a variety of different dupes for the Clear Cube. You can purchase the exact same one I have if you Click Here. That is an Ebay seller. Now I also know some of you do not buy on Ebay so I found another on Sherrie Blossom's website also. There is also another here on Amazon a little more expensive than the one I got. Now they come in a 3,4,and 5 drawer with lid and come in Compact or in Large size.

I paid $168 with shipping from Florida to NJ and I received it with tracking within a week. I can not tell you how impressed I was the Packaging and it arrived safe and sound.

You guys cant comprehend just how much Bubble Wrap that was involved in this package. I could have Wrapped myself up in it and shipped myself back ! lol

Ain't it just purty? lol
What you see inside the drawer are 2 dividers. One with an "X" Formation and just 2 to divide a drawer.

A small Boo Boo but its in the Acrylic itself not on the outside so I think it will be ok .

Top Portion does Come with a lid but I just rested it behind the unit. I put the "X" Divider and put my perfumes, Glitter Stacks, random goodies.

This unit is pretty Big. i could only fit it to the Right of my Vanity. Pretty Heavy too 27lb!

Yes i am a Pigment Junkie (don't judge) . Here I used the 2 dividers for all my 20g jars.

My New Storage for my Lippies.
All of them fit in 2 5 drawer units from Muji. I added a 3 drawer to add more room for new lippies on the way ! lol
Becasue i have the cube I was able to eliminate the use of 3 of the 3 drawer Muji units . Thats how much stuff fits inside of it.

I hot Glued 4 of these Pencil Holders I got from Target makes for better storage for my liners etc.

I love storing them this way sooo much better. Can see everything don't have to fumble.

Since I was in Cleaning Mode Decided to Organize my Bangles too! Got the Clear Holder from the Container Store for $7 and the Black one from Michaels for $3.49. Wish I would have gone there 1st!

Overall i love my Unit and I refuse to have to expand anymore! My rom is tiny and as long as I stick to the space I have and am realistic with what I actually use it will be ok. My fam love reaping the benefits when I have a "Clean Out"! Lets just say they don't really shop for makeup and hair products bc I always  have goodies for them lol.
