MAC Love That Look

I must have forgotten that this collection came out. I didn't buy any of the e/s the first time Starflash was released..i just didn't feel any of them at the time. However, this time around I'm FEELING quite a few of them.

But i need some one to tell me NOT to buy Rated "R" e/s. Greens always call my name. I was looking at my ever growing collection of green e/s last night and counted 8 e/s that look pretty much like Rated "R". I have MAC's Eyepopping, Bitter, Overgrown and NARS Rated R due just to name a few. So i know i really don't need it but oh how i want it.

As of right now i think i will only get Fashion, One-off and Strike and Pose. That's all i need right?

The "Dirty" Little Blog Award

I received this amazing award from the awesome Michelle (Lipstick Rules). Like Michelle i have a bad habit of saying this, but not around the kids cause i just know my 2 year old would say it in church and then i would die of embarrassment.

So the rules with this award are:

List five current obsessions and pass the award on to five more fabulous blogs. On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them. When you post your five winners, make sure you link them as well. To add the award to your post, simply right-click, save image, then “add image” in your post as a picture so your winners can save it as well. Also, don’t forget to let your winners know they won an award from you by leaving a comment on their blog.

Five of My Current Obsessions

1. Twitter- it's sad but i check my twitter maybe 30 times a day and i am always posting the most random things.

2. Nail polish- I have always loved doing my nails but now i change them every few days and i keep buying nail polish like it's going outta style.

3. Mints-yeah the little breath mint eat them all the time, what can i say they taste good.

4. Cooking- Recently i told my husband that we spend to much money eating out that it's getting ridiculous. So I have decided to start experimenting with cooking..i never really cooked before. It's been so much fun coming up with my own recipes and getting inspiration from cooking shows.

5. Art- I've been getting more into painting/drawing. I use to do it all the time when i was younger but since i started having kids that was kinda put on the back burner.

I nominate these awesome ladies because i always find inspiration from their looks, beauty reviews, etc.

Illamasqua FINALLY at Sephora

I found out about this brand Illamasqua about 6 months ago and have been wanting to buy their products so bad. They seem like they are really great quality, and so far what i have seen on youtude makes me really want I hadn't made a purchase yet because i didn't want to pay the shipping cost. So when i read that Illamasqua was coming to Sephora i was beyond excited!! I'm most interested in trying out the foundations..I can never find the perfect foundation...some are to pink other to yellow/orange. The prices are higher than MAC but about the same as that's not to bad..right?

Who else will be buying from this line? I hope to make a purschase really soon.

How many lipsticks do you have?

Early today Lipstick Rules posted a blog about how she counted her lippe stash after reading someone else blog and it got me thinking as well. So i took all the lipsticks and glosses out of their drawer. I seriously thought i only had maybe 20-30 glosses and knew i would have a few more lipsticks. I was shocked when i counted to find i had 59 lipglosses and 61 lipsticks.. that's a lot for me lol. So i don't see how i need any more lippes cause I'm sure i have almost ever color that i need.

I think i will join in the challenge and start to wear a different lip color combo everyday.


There was no light so i had to use the flash..but they are pretty and sparkly. Yeah i do A LOT of animal

MAC Baby Blooms

I am no longer that interested in this collection. After seeing swatches of the Suntints and seeing how there is absolutely no pigmentation only shimmer i will be passing these up. However, I am still pretty excited about the Studio Moisture Tint.

I've been thinking about taking photos of the makeup stash...i honestly don't have much. I use to think i had a ton of makeup until i started going on love looking at all the ladies makeup...maybe i'll make a project out of it this week

Why is it so hard to find a great mascara?

You would think with all the technology in the world they could develop the perfect mascara formula already. I have tried quite a few mascaras in my time and i have yet to really find my HG mascara. Even the ones i love could always be better, none of them are perfect. Maybe i'm just asking for to much.


Cover Girl Lash Blast

Diorshow in Blackout

Benefit BAD gal Lash


Stila Major Lash

Maybelline The Colossal Volum Express

NYX Doll Eye


Maybelline Lash Stiletto

MAC Prep+Prime Lash

L'oreal Extra Volume Collagen

Maybelline Define a Lash

I usually try drug store brands cause I'm not willing to shell out the money on high end mascaras when I'll usually not like it. However I've been wanting to try Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes and YSL Faux Clis.

more things i'm lemming

Things I'm Lemming

I am sooo looking forward to the Style Black collection from MAC. The products it self are not original, but the idea of entire collection in black makes me drool. I am going to be purchasing EVERYTHING from this collection..yippie. So hopefully i won't be disappointed.

I really want the nail color from Sephora by OPI in Ocean Love Potion.

I have seen several gurus on youtube using these nail art pens and they look like lots of fun. I have serveral of the Salley Hansen Nail art pens and i HATE them. The Migi pens have a finer point and looks easier to make a desgin.
OMG..i need these. I am a HUGE lippie fan. And everyone is raving about thise Lip Tars from Obessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
I am not a huge fan of neutral/natraul colors but for some reason i'm drawn to this Urban Decay palette
