* NEW Forever 21 Accessory Haul! *


Hey Loves!
I went to Forever 21 (again) and found some insanely gorgeous necklaces!
I am literally at a loss for words. If you know me, you know I LOVE holographic anything. Hell, I even have a whole board on pinterest dedicated to everything holographic. So, when I saw this necklace, I practically peed myself!!!!

I took three pictures to show the different ways the holographic jewels reflect in the different light.

AND these earrings <3


and these cute little sleepy kitty studs


I also bought this beautiful three piece chain necklace. The colors remind me of a gas spill! Absolutely gorgeous!!


AND at the cash, I smelt this heavenly body mist and it practically flew to the cash. SO YUMMY!!



Thanks Everyone

Some New Makeup and Hair Products!

Hello loves,
So I bought a few goodies here and there and I wanted to share them with all of you! So feast your eyes on these goodies and maybe you'll love what you see :)


This is Clinique's Glazed Berry
Clinique is a brand my mother has been buying for years. She came home one night and showed me this lipstick (which was part of a gift) and I immediately fell in love. It's a beautifully coralish fushia lipstick with a blueish sheen. It's just unique and lovely!




  These new Revlon nail polishes are part of the Limited Edition Spider Man collection! These colors are stunning and both have a shimmery finish that has many reflects to it.
 Electrified Web is an Orange with a flash of gold and coral
Gwen's Crush is a fuchsia with a flash of purple and blue.
Stunning on the nails and last awhile without chips!



 This overshadow from The Balm in work is overrated is a dusty shimmery shadow topper. You can put this over eyeshadow or use alone to add shimmer and sparkle to your look.


This is the Balmbini palette from The Balm 
It has two of the balms famous blushes, a highlighter, two eyeshadows, a lipstick and a lipbalm!
It's a great little palette that lets you try out some of the Balms best products :)



Ok, the Ice Cream KroMask in Cherry is a nourishing color mask that you put on damp hair and leave on for a maximum of 5 minutes. This mask is literally the best thing EVER. I've been dyeing my hair a dark red and recently did a little ombre to my ends to give some dimension and fun. The mask made my hair brighter and more vibrant than it has ever been! It's obviously not permanent, but it lasts a few washes and you can apply whenever you want!


This is what my hair looked like after the mask :)


I'm a big fan of the Batiste, dry shampoo line and I have a few bottles of the exotic coconut scent. However, I saw this bottle- the XXL version appealed to me even more! My thin hair needs this bad boy for life! (and it smells lovely!)

Enjoy!
Let me know if you've tried these products and what your thoughts are :)

Urban Decay's Electric Palette


Hey Guys! Thanks for stopping by :)

Today, I want to introduce you to the new palette to come from Urban Decay called "Electric".
Unlike the famous naked palette's, this one features 10 bright and intense pressed pigments. This palette features pigments that are both smooth and rich  and can be used on the eyes, face, lips and hair!





The packaging is STUNNING! I practically fell out of my seat when I saw this palette. 




Let's talk about the first row of pigments.

Revolt is a beautiful silver pigment. It' really pretty as a highlight and the texture is more glittery and more flaky than the rest.
Gonzo is a bright sky blue with a satin finish
Slowburn is a orange based red that sure packs one hell of a punch and has a satin finish.
Savage is bright matte blue based pink and is the most chalky shade of the palette. Perfect for lips or hair!
Fringe is an intense and silky teal color with a shimmery satin finish.




Chaos is a ridiculously intense electric blue with a satin to matte finish. This shade has the most fallout, but we can definitely look past that.
Jilted is a warm purple with a tint of pink. It has a satin finish and reflects blue in the light.
Urban is an intense cool purple with a satin/metallic finish
Freak is a stunning lime green with a shimmer finish
Thrash is a chartreuse green/yellow. It can look more yellow with a white base underneath. It has a shimmery satin finish.

This palette also comes with a synthetic, double ended brush.

This palette is labelled a 'pressed pigment' palette because these colors are in their true, intense form. The 4 shades slowburn, savage, jilted and urban are apparently not safe for use on the eyes. These colors contain a red pigment which may irritate those with sensitive eyes. Use at your own discretion.




For this eye look I used the shadows 'naked' and 'WOS' from the naked basics palette in my crease for definition. I then used 'freak' all over my eyelid. On the inner corners I used 'thrash' and 'revolt'. In the outer corner, I used 'fringe' and took it up slightly into the crease as well. On my lower lash line, I used a purple liner and put 'urban' shadow on the outer corner and 'freak' for the first half of my bottom lash line. With 'urban', I winged out my bottom, extended the lash line.




Thank you for stopping by! <3

OCC- Primary Pack- Swatches Galore!

Hey Everyone!
OCC or Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics are well known for their lip tars (not made with tarr). They are gluten, vegan and cruelty FREE! These lip products are super, highly and intensely pigmented (and yes, the three adjectives were necessary)!
They have a million different colors and they finally came out with an all star mini kit. This kit contains all the primary colors (blue, red and yellow) as well and black and white. With these colors in your arsenal, you can LITERALLY DO ANY LIP COLOR YOU WANT! The possibilities are endless!
These lip tars have a kind of mild minty flavor that goes away when dry. They go on super shiny but dry down to a matte finish. They stain the lips, and last a long time :) This pack also comes with a full size lip brush, which is the perfect tool for applying this product. 
You only need a small dot of the color to cover your lips and a pin point amount of another color to mix! I would suggest using a lip liner with these colors because they do tend to feather at the lip line.
This primary pack is sold at http://occmakeup.com/ or http://www.sephora.com (where I got it). This primary pack sells for $35 and is perfect for makeup artists :) (or for those of you curious and adventurous girls and boys). A regular full sized lip tar is $20, and you'll never run out! :)





Here are the swatches (I had a lot of fun making different colors...my lips were so in pain after this swatchfest, but it was so worth it!)


The Pack comes with a Red (NSFW), Blue (RX), Yellow (Traffic), White (Feathered) and Black (Tarred)

I wrote down each combination of colors I used to create each lip (so I and you would know for future reference- W2 refers to me putting double the white to further lighten the color)


Let's start with the WARM colors :)



Now on to COOL colors!



I was partial to the mint ;)
B+Y+W2

Hope you enjoyed!
Let me know your favorite combo!
