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...

Tarte Baby its Bold Outside Collection

Hello beauties I'm back again and catching up on some seriously backlogged goodness I have accumulating here. I took advantage of my 20% coupon at Ulta a few weeks ago and got my hands on some awesome goodies from Tarte! 

I used my coupon only on the big palette and Too Faced lippy. The blushes I purchased directly from Tarte Cosmetics because Sephora had already sold out of them .

I hadnt had the chance to try any of these Amazonian Clay blushes at all. I have read and heard that they are amazing and just never got around to getting any so I am glad I was able to get some even if they are the mini versions. I thought this was a steal for $35 for 4 minis and covers all the basics.

Angelic  (Shimmering Champagne)

Stellar (Shimmering Nude)

Fantastic (Soft Fuchsia)

Magic (Pink Coral)

I love that these are so silky and pigmented. I do think that I will have a bit of trouble with stellar showing up on my medium skin tone but will incorporate it somehow in my makeup routine if not will be an awesome stocking stuffer for a beauty lover!

I had always been curious about this mascara so I am glad I snagged it on sale for $10. I am not all that thrilled about it to be completely honest as I have never been a bottom lash mascara user. I found it to be a but to dry and well even though I understand the purpose of the smaller wand, I just found it a bit tricky to use in my opinion.

This was a freebie with purchase and decided to see what the rave was all about in this little bottle of liquid gold lol. I like how soft my skin feels after using it but do not care too much for the distinct smell. 

Can you hear me squealing with excitement yet?!! I have been lusting over this palette for quite some time along with the Carried Away Collector's Set I will get my hands on it soon! 

Anywho this is the Big Thrills  Collection and Here is what's inside:

  • 16 Full Size Amazonian clay Eye shadows
  • Amazonian Clay bronzer in Park Ave Princess
  • 3 Amazonian Clay 12-hr blushes in angelic, curious, and thrilled
  • 3 Full sized lipglosses in Apple-a-day, Abra-cad-apricot, strawberry sensation

The awesomeness of the matte teal is insane! Jump for Jupiter is the shade!

I have been trying to get more warmer shades for fall and staying away from all the pinks and reds for a bit because I feel that 80%  of my lippies are pinks and reds lol. I decided to go with this awesome warm shade that I love for everyday. Yes the packaging didnt hurt either lol

September Faves, and Extras

Hello my beauties it has been waaay too long since I have shared some beauty awesomeness with you all. I have been so busy with day to day and some personal issues but I am here and ready to share some goodies with you guys. 

I have been playing around with some of my Pretty Addictions shadows and came up with this glamourous Halloween inspired look:

Timid, Venom, Dahlia and Hell on Heels used!

25 Karat gold on top of Mac Ruby Woo
Toxic, Clown Fish Kiss, Hell on Heels, and Barbados Bronzer on the Cheeks!

Any chance to add Rhinestones or something sparkly I will !
I used some of these funky lashes I picked up at walgreens recently:
These Bat girl Lashes were so Heavy and a bit of work to be honest. The band was not very flexible and they weren't as wispy as they seemed. Definitely dramatic and fun but not for everyday of course lol

Here are some faves I had last month:

How flirty are these lashes. I cant wait to create a look with them !

I have been trying to find more matte blushes and this Mac Blush is the perfect shade of pink for my tanned complexion.

This covergirl lippie was a total steal for $2 some time ago and is one of the ones I reach for daily to give me that perfectly nude/mauve look. So creamy also.

Since the weather has been getting a bit colder , I have been slowly losing some of my tan (insert sad face) , so I can use some for the foundation I had put aside since was too dark at the time for them. This Bobbi Brown foundation matches me perfectly right now and what better name of the shade than Early tan!

Highlighters are one of my favorite makeup products. i love to have a glowy and healthy complexion and this Watts Up by benefit definitely turns up the glow on my cheeks!

I have been on quite the nail polish kick lately and have noticed that I have been grabbing more and more Essie colors. I just love how they go on , and how opaque the colors really are. These were some recent purchases.

Yes I know I need more eyeshadow lie a whole in the head, but These colors combined called my attention and I just had to have them!

THis picture really does this shade no justice I actually went through all of my polishes and I actually had nothing like it! Love it!

Some randomness:

I have also been busy being a contributor for This That Beauty and share my insight and tips on some of the most recent trends, reviews in beauty. This was a look I did using Kevyn Aucoin shadows and OCC lip tar in Strumpet. I am officially obsessed with lip tars and well would love to have so many shades.

I really have been enjoying this little project because is a bit different than my standard hey I bought this I like it heres what I think and how you should use it type blog. 

They are a little more of the "glamorous end" of the beauty spectrum and well with the name Bergdorf Goodman you know exactly what I mean. They are all about everyday women in the beauty and fashion world. There are a few of us that contribute to the site so you are always guarantee the most updated info on the most recent trends and with everyones different views on certain items
