Anastasia Want You to Want Me and Kisses on My List

Hello beauties today I will be introducing a new palette and lip products that Anastasia Beverly Hills has come out with for the Holidays 2012.

What it is:

The Want You to Want Me is a kit within a clutch…a nod to the glam and decadence of the 1970’s.  This set includes a deluxe eye shadow palette featuring an array of 70’s rock inspired shades for a beautiful holiday look. The mirrored compact with brush features nine matte and pearlized nude and plum shadows, Liquid Eye Liner, and Mini Clear Brow Gel to turn your eyes into a velvet goldmine. With shadow tints like Power Ballad, Jellies, Platform Wedge, and Ziggy…how can you go wrong!  Toss this gorgeous palette in your clutch for touch-ups wherever your night takes you.   The Want You to Want Me makeup kit retails for $34 ($90 value) and is available at Sephora and Anastasia.net

The Kisses on My List gloss set features six high-shine glosses in matte and shimmer shades that wear all-day.  With three softly sheer, opalescent glosses, and three new Hypercolor Glosses that actually stain your lips…don’t be standing too close to the mistletoe if you don’t want to be kissed!  Each gloss is named after famous 70’s muses you won’t soon forget.  Lola, Maggie May, Sharona, Roxanne, Jolene, and Moi are sure to inspire your loved one to write a song about you! The Kisses on My List gloss set retails for $30 ($108 value) and is available at Sephora and Anastasia.net.

Introducing Hypercolor:
Every great relationship starts with a little chemistry. This limited-edition set includes 3 sheer, ultra-hydrating glosses, and 3 new and exclusive HYPERCOLOR glosses. HYPERCOLOR reacts with your skin's chemistry to stain your lips in a custom hue that is all your own. It will only take you being yourself to be absolutely, uniquely beautiful.

Here I recreated Dancing Queen and used Maggie May Lip Gloss

Check out the detail on this packaging I mean to die for!

The outside is a velvety smooth texture much like a jewelry box .

I love that there is a combination of both matte and shimmery shades in this palette. 

The shadows are very smooth and blend well. The darker shades I will say cause a bit of staining so be sure to use a good base underneath them.

These glosses always catch my interest in the way they are applied. The plastic applicator take some getting use to . I personally find the glosses to be a bit on the stickier side but gorgeous colors none the less.

This is definitely a great gift for anyone that is into neutral shades.

Fall Haul 2012

Hello my beauties! I hope you are all enjoying this fall weather and season. Here it is getting a little chilly in the mornings and evening which is refreshing after the scorching heat we had this summer. Love all the fall decorations and treats out now .

Over  the past few weeks I have grabbed a few beauty items that I just had to have.

I love the new Fergie line from Wet n Wild. I have always been a fan of the drugstore line and well over the years they have significantly improved in quality in my opinion.

I got these at my local Walgreen's for $7.99 each. Yes a little pricier than I would have liked but it is definitely all in the packaging and what comes in it. This is as big as a book and opens as such. Will be doing a few looks with these soon and will go more into detail then on whats inside.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know already how much I have obsessed about this cute Halloween polish!

This was I believe $3.99 at RiteAid and I was instantly drawn to this blue and pink goodness!

I also picked up this new Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Polish that caught my attention. Has a bit of a holographic/duo chrome feel to it and thought was a perfect shade for fall.

Now one of the most important things to me in the beauty world is my skincare. I am very very picky and careful when it comes to my face. The awesome people at Apothica gave me the opportunity to choose a couple of things on the site and I had been wanting this set for like ever but the $45 price tag always deterred me from doing so.

I use a couple of other items from the Dr. Brandt line and I know they also carry the line at Sephora. It does wonders to my skin texture and my skin drinks it up!

One of the things I had been wanting to get was this Pores no more Vacuum Cleaner for Blackheads. I have terrible blackheads around my nose and I am always trying to squeeze them out or scrub like crazy . ( I know super bad) but haven't found anything that has worked for them . Praying this will do the trick!

OK so the full size version of this little Collagen Booster is $75 !!! Yup you can also find it here at Sephora. I mean I am gonna have to see what kind of miracle lies in this tube because I cant justify spending that much to be honest on a skin treatment. 

I went to my other favorite store Tarjay and had to get some things I ran out of like my Eye makeup Remover from Sonia K etc. 

I have heard and read some great reviews on this concealer quad and wanted something to throw in m purse for on the go touch ups. I  have mentioned many times before how much of a concealer junkie I am but a much needed item in my life unfortunately

I also had been looking for a lash comb. I had forgotten to pick up one when I went to Ricky's the other day and for $5 figured shouldn't be so bad. I usually use a spoolie , but sometimes I need a little more separation after my mascara.

Ok so this is now my 2nd L'oreal Pencil. I love it to pieces. It goes on super dark and smoothly on my water line, and so long as I set my concealer with a powder after, the transfer of this liner on my lower lash line is very very minimal.

I had been eye balling these after seeing them all over Instagram and posts and decided to grab a couple that I liked the most. 

Really Rose is my favorite of the 3. I guess I like opaque glosses over shimmery ones. I use them daily and like how they don't feel sticky. They have an awesome scent to them too!

I have a ton of posts lined up for you all. I am trying to learn ways to better plan them and get more in throughout the week. Working and being a wife and dealing with day to day sometimes is a challenge when it comes to time management. I enjoy all of the different adventures I am currently handling and feel as though sometimes it turns into work instead of my hobby and fun. I am anxious to see what other opportunities will come my way and will enable me to share awesome posts and news for all of my lovely readers. I love you all to pieces and wouldn't be still in the blogosphere without you all. 

See you all soon!
Love & Lipgloss!

Most Important Beauty Accessory

Happy Sunday everyone! September is upon us and I will say that fall is my most favorite season. Today we will be chatting about our most important beauty accessory.To many it may be a bold shade of red lipstick, or the next best chunky necklace that is trending. All of these little things bring us some happiness and what do we do most when we are happy? SMILE!!!!!

I am lucky enough to be working on a campaign for Johnson & Johnson through Entre Tu y Yo and the Latina Lifestlye Collective and have had the opportunity to try some amazing products. 

Be sure to sit tight you will have another opportunity to win $100 worth of Johnson & Johnson items!

One of the items dear to my heart is Listerine!!

Did you know?

That there are millions if not more, types of bacteria that live in your mouth? 

Being in the dental profession myself for close to 10 years, I have learned so much about Oral Health. Most I believe go through the motions of brushing but can not tell you how many to not floss, scrape their tongues, or even use mouth wash.


Ok we all know how extremely important it is to brush.You can get as fancy as you want with either the traditional, or power brush as you would like. The end result is all in the motion and how effective it actually is in removing plaque etc. I personally work in a pediatric dental office so we cater mostly to children. I have had experiences in both adult and pediatric settings. One of the things I find adults just do not do enough is brush. We teach children do do this 2x a day in the morning and right before bed, but what happens to the adults? 


Ah the enemy to most. I see this daily as an issue in the office. Most do not floss at all or only do it when they feel something is wedged between their teeth. Not good. Flossing is extremely important in keeping the gums healthy. Red, puffy, aggravated gums are a signs of gingivitis (swelling of the gingiva aka the gums) We must try to do this at the very least once a day. Most will stop because they see some bleeding or are having a hard time getting the floss in between the teeth. There are many ways around this. Use your standard floss between the fingers (hard for most my personal preference) something with a handle like the Access Reach or the Plackers. The Plackers come in bags of I believe 50 or so for around $2-4 at Walmart or any store! The more you floss the healthier your gums will be Bleeding and irritation is normal if you aren't doing it as often as you should. Your gums are screaming "Hey what are you doing, you haven't done this before" The more you do it the more pink and less irritated your gums will be . 

Another important reason flossing is crucial is because brushing covers all of the "outer surfaces" of the teeth. Your brush can not get the food particles in between. Flossing removes anything in between and will prevent CAVITIES!!!! I see this daily especially with children. If the teeth in the back are close together they need to be flossed end of story. No matter age! The main reason for those uncomfortable X-rays is to check for cavities in between the teeth and the main cause of them is lack of Flossing!


One of the main things you need to know is that you need to see your regular dentist at least 2x a year or every 6 months. Find out with your insurance provider what your coverage is and the frequencies. Most visits will cover the consult with the dentist, a cleaning with a hygienist and a full mouth series of X-rays. Many have their views and preference when it comes to X-rays, educate yourselves prior to your appointments, or ask questions. That is why we are there and have been trained for. Our goals are to keep your mouth as healthy as possible and checkups are very crucial to keeping all of your teeth. Yes you can actually keep all of your teeth for life people!


Scencario, you are out for lunch and have a very yummy dish and after you are done you feel your mouth is not very fresh. There is food stuck, maybe there were a lot of spices that are making your mouth smelly etc. In your purse you can carry a travel size anything now a days. This is as important to me as my makeup bag. I carry a small toothpaste, floss, brush, mouthwash, tooth picks, mints you name it. Now I dont expect you to bust out your full arsenal in public and begin picking at your teeth at the dinner table. Politely excuse yourself to the restroom and if you are comfortable get a quick brush in or floss away. There are a lot of different tools and gadgets available over the counter. Being in the field sure I have most but I understand it just isnt feasible or realistic for most. At the very least cary a mint or SUGAR free chewing gum. This will create more saliva in the mouth loosening up food particles etc.

Oral Habits:

Yes even I am guilty of this myself at times. We must try our very best to not use our teeth as tools. Nail biting, opening packages, bottles (like my dad..cringe) ICE, hard candies, the list goes on. I will not bore you with what not to eat or do etc but these habits can affect our overall Oral Health.
