Hello….Long time no blogging…

Hello my loves! It’s been a long time since I blogged about anything and I have been pretty busy graduating and getting my bachelors degree in Communications Marketing. I also have a 1-year-old daughter and I have been looking for a job! I haven’t found a job yet but I am not giving up hope. Anyway, on to some beauty news!!! If, you remember from my last few posts about shopping my stash, that is exactly what I’ve been doing. I bought some new things here and there but nothing major. I will post a “hiatus haul” in a few days. I have tons of new things to post about. I used up a few things and discovered a new-found love in a Chanel palette I bought about 6 years ago!!! I know, I know that’s a long time but there is more where that came from but, I will be sure to keep you updated.

Hello readers!!!!!!!! I wanted to post something quick for you guys. I recently did my nails. I love doing my own manicures. Here I painted my nails with Orly’s “Rage” and Sally Hansen’s “Ring-A-Ding”!!!! It looks like I have little mirrors in my nails! I usually like creams but I’m obsessed with the glitter and metallics. As long as I’m obsessed I’ll keep wearing them!! I hope you like them!

Back 2 MAC!!



As you can see I have a lot of MAC lipsticks. Those are not all of them either!! I love lipstick period but, as I said in my previous post I need to cut back. I will Back 2 Mac my empty items. Back to Mac is MAC’s recycling program. When you have six empty containers you can go to any Mac container or store and trade your empties for 1 lipstick or 1 eyeshadow.

I already traded my 6 empties for this Mac Lovelorn lipstick. Doing Back 2 Mac makes me want to use my products and it felt good to know I did something good and I was rewarded in the end! If your confused about what can be traded check the boxes and it will tell you!!

Thanks for reading!!

No dry time Manicure!

20120411-012258.jpg

It has been such a busy week!!! I haven’t had the time to really pamper myself. Every Sunday night I try my best to give myself a little time. With being a mom and doing homework it’s hard to get my alone time. Yesterday, I had 30 minutes to myself to do a semi quick manicure!!! Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips. I forgot the name of them but as you can see its the houndstooth design. I love these so much. The kicker is the no dry time. On the packaging it says it takes about 15 mins but I thinks it takes about an half an hour if you want them to look good. These did chip after one day because I do soooooooo much with my hands but I still love them anyway. I use these all the time and they do last for a good week and a half without my constant typing and four times a day dish washing. I hope you like these!! Thank you for reading!

I just wanted to post this pic. As you can see I like to look natural. I was in a rush to leave and I needed a fast face. I filled in my brows, mascara, blush and my favorite Dior lip glow. This was a quick post but I hope you like it!!

Shopping My Stash

This only a sneak peak of what I have in my makeup stash. I’m not calling this a collection because it is truely time to use all of what I have. I mean to use things but I just forget about them.

I really need to stop buying makeup! So what I plan to do is use what I have and try to fall in love with the items I stopped using and maybe I can find some new favorite things. I have makeup I haven’t even opened yet so that is bad and a waste of money. I always felt that I would not open something until I used up one thing. That has not happened yet. So the best thing for me to do is to open things and force myself to use them. I  will be rotating items in my makeup bag to help me get some use out of some things. I did throw away some things that were old and to help with the process of elimination I gave away some things on Makeup Alley. Thanks for reading!! Let’s start saving some money! Love and Lipstick!

My Makeup Inspiration!

I LOVE RIHANNA. I love her fashion and makeup. When I look for makeup looks I tend to get my inspiration from what Rihanna is wearing. This picture is about two years old but I just found it and I love it. I’m not a wearer of eyeshadow but she makes me want to wear some just for this look. For an everyday look I would wear a navy blue eyeliner to take the place of the blue shadow.  Who is your makeup inspiration?

My Favorite Products!!


MUFE Face and Body #18 This foundation do not settle in my smile lines, it does not make me look like I have a mask on my face and it just looks good all day.  I like to look natural but not natural if you know what I mean. I also would like to give the MAC Face and Body a try so I could compare the two but for right now I’m loving MUFE!

Mac Studio Finish Concealer NC45. I used this concealer on my blemishes, This is my fav because it does not move, great coverage and it stays all day.
 
Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer NC45. I like this one too because to me it does the same things studio finish does it’s just a little creamier amd smoother.
 
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit- Golden. I use this one under my eyes. When I stay up all night from doing homework, the next day I look like death. I put this concealer under my eyes and set it with the powder that comes in the kit and I look bright eyed and bushy tailed!! HA!
I can’t go without concealer!!!!
 
NARS- Casino. I love this Bronzer sooooooo much!! Most days I wear concealer and Bronzer on my face. This bronzer makes me glow and I look like I just stepped off the beach. I love this bronzer.
 
 MAC Brow Shader –Ivoire/ Walnut (Discontinued) Since I have very thick brows I like to used this powder to fill in the sparse areas. I used the lighter shade under the brow and they still look natural and not too strong looking.
 
Right now I’m wearing Great Lash BIG, Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black. I love these two together for extra UMPH!!  When I’m in a rush I will wear Great Lash alone. I just started wearing the YSL Radical Noir (not pictured) it reminds me of Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black but just a tad bit better. I will give a full review in a later post.
 
Dior Lip Glow. If I need something to put on my lips and I’m in a rush this is my go to lip balm. It has spf 10 and it gives me just a pink tint on my lips. I love this stuff!!
 I do own eye shadows but I don’t like to wear eye shadow but I,  prefer colored eyeliners. I would wear eye shadow sometimes, only if I’m in the mood to wear them. I know it’s weird.
My Blush  is always different. For right now I like corals and oranges. What are you favorites? Smooches!
