Hello!!!!
So for those who are tight on money these days...(like some of us are) I found a great website for those who want to try some sample size products before they buy the actual one which cost more. Or you just want a little bit of something. She also sells regular size products too.


Some of the samples include:
  • MAC - paint pots, pigments, pro face powder
  • NYX - lots of stuff from NYX
  • Ben Nye - pigments
  • Mary Kay - skin stuff
  • Some other things like:brushes, rings, her seminar tickets, eye lashes, gel liner

By the way her name is Marlena and I found her from YouTube.
She is really talented so check out her YouTube page.


Here is the store website:

Henna!! My finished product


HENNA FUN!!



Here are some pictures when I applied the Henna and some after it dried:

Before:

Me

My Cousin


After:

Me


My Cousin


Okie
Dokie..As you can see I did some weird stuff on me and a butterfly on my cousin. I sorta went crazy on myself. (Hey, it was my first time) But I love the way my cousins turned out. I took this picture before she washed it, so it still had a little henna on it. Overall I loved this kit and I would definitely buy it again. I still have allot left over, so I will be doing more designs later. (not just drawling on myself) The box says it will last up to 3 or 4 weeks....So yay!!!

PROS:
  • Easy to use, including the stencils and the applicator
  • Drys fast,
  • Lots of product for the price
  • No burning or any skin irritation on me or cousin
  • The smell is pleasant
  • Lots of fun
CONS:
  • A little messy...but then again..that was probably just me!


Here is the site I bought it at again:

Look of my day!! Using black and silver from CS


Black and silver look using Coastal Scents Palette.



What I did:
  • Put on Too Faced shadow insurance
  • Covered the lid and a little above the crease with black eyeshadow
  • Then on the lid put silver over the black
  • Blended the colors a little
  • Then blend that black from the crease out, using a clean blending brush
  • I then put mascara on, I used Great lash in "Very Black" (curl those lashes)
  • Then on the lower lash line I did the same thing I did on the lid
  • Don't forget to smudge that lower lash line
  • And for the lips I used a lip stain
That's It!!!

Peace!!

I finally bought the " Pastel" Mehron Palette

Pastel- Mehron Palette

I bought this palette from: http://www.stagesupply.com

It cost 25.95 without shipping and handling. It came pretty fast but when it came I was like Aahhhhhhh!!!!! It is so pretty and it smells like coconut. Mmmmm!! It also comes with a really good mirror. The colors are amazing. These palettes are water activated but you only need a drop...actually even less a drop. You sorta just have to experiment with it. They work really good as a base...makes the color more vibrant.

Here are some swatches dry, from top to bottom:















Here are some swatches wet....Tuhh duh!!!!




















It was easier for me to put a drop of water with one of those travel bottles. But do what works for you.

OMG!!!! These OCC Lip Tar's are amazing!!

OCC Lip Tar

(OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS)

Ok..So I just watched a video from Lauren (QueenOfBlendingMUA) on Youtube. She showed these Lip Tars in three different colors, that I fell in love with!!!!

On the OCC website they have 9 different colors:
  • UBER
  • MELANGE
  • SAFETY ORANGE
  • NSFW
  • PAGEANT
  • KATRICIA
  • TARRED
  • FEATHERED
  • CLEAR
They sell for 12.50 each. They look so pigmented and she put on literally a dab and the gloss went so far....So a little goes a long way! The OCC website says they go on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. I am gonna buy all three and then some. I just thought I should tell you guys, how amazing they look.

This is what bordom does?

So I was a little bored after I came home from shopping today. So I decided to make something. I have been using a dinner plate to put my brushes on while they dry, after I wash them...A plate people!!! bleh!! So I decided to make something that I can put my in brushes while they dry. Here it is:


(Yes, Its a shoe box)

What I did:

What I did was I poked a bunch of different size holes in the bottom of the shoe box. (Using a pen) Then cut all four sides in the middle...so there is air for the brushes to breath and so it can stand up correctly. That's it!!! I am going to clean up the edges and also decorate it in the days to come. Oh ya, If your someone that cares about the MAC label on your brushes, You probably don't want to do this...or figure out a way that its not so harsh on the brush handle, while your sliding it in.

How it works:

You take the makeup brushes, bristles down and put the brush in to one of the holes from the bottom of the box up ....Here's how it looks:


And that's it!!! I thought it was fun!! You can also use something less bulky then a shoe box too.... Although, I like it for drying a lot of my brushes at one time!!!

Love Peace and Chicken Grease!!

What's what? Lipstuff?


Different types of lipsticks

*Matte: Intense dramatic color, no shimmer, will stay on throughout the day. Tends to dry out lips so apply a base first, for moisture.

* Satin: Shiny, glossy finish, good for dry lips.

*Lacquer: Super intense colors, shiny synthetic look.

* Cream: Rich and creamy with lots of color. Shiny but not as much as others. Does not dry out fast and is good for small lips.

*Sheer: Glossy, clear and is good for a day look. You will have to reapply this a few times.

*Frost: Sparkles and shines, reflects the light but can be drying.

* Semi permanent: Won't rub off or fade and most likely last through out the day

*Lip balm: Cures chapped lips, gives relief

*Lip Gloss: Shiny, and can be clear or colored but if colored it usually is a more toned down one. Can be applied alone or on top of a lipstick for extra shine. Good for small lips...makes them appear fuller.

The Brush Guards


I first heard about The Brush Guards from Koren, on his You Tube page. http://www.youtube.com/user/EnKoreMakeup
I fell in love with them.
**The Brush Guards keep your makeup brushes in the perfect state of which you bought them in. They are perfect for traveling so that they don't get damaged. And if your someone that cares if the MAC logo gets rubbed off, it helps in that aspect also, as shown on Koren's page. They also help after you wash your brushes...keeps them in there original shape while drying .**
I personally bought them for after I wash my brushes, to keep them in there shape.. It works...I love them!! Plus they are hella cheap!! YAY!! You should really check them out.

I bought the shadow/liner pack, which came with 10 ex. small guards.($5.50)

My favorite and worst of makeup remover towelettes.

Let me start with the worst....... First of all, its too wet...I can almost fill up 1/4 of a cup with the amount of liquid that is in it. Second, It takes awhile to take the makeup off...I had to scrub my eye more then usual. And worst of all...It burnt the h...e... double hockey stick out of my eyes. I never had any makeup remover do that. It hurt so bad I would cry and would have to close my eyes for a few minutes. Maybe its just me, I am not sure. Plus, they are way to big...so its very wasteful. I would never use this product again for any reason.

And now for my favorite.......AH" : ).....
This is my favorite Makeup remover ever...so far!! lol!
* It takes your makeup off really quick.
* Alcohol free
* Cleans thoroughly
* Its not too wet but wet enough.
* Soft
* Does not break me out
* Does not burn my eyes
* I love it
..........I bought it at Target in the makeup section.............

***P.S: The down side is that they are also big...but I guess you can always cut them in half as you use them. Just put the other half back in the pack.

** Sanitize the scissors first people**

Scandalous Shadow Base



Ok...to be honest ......I didn't really like this product when I first got it. It was making all my eye shadows do the dreaded crease thing and the colors would fade very easily. But I after watching http://www.youtube.com/user/makeupartistamateur I realized I was putting way to much on. Priscilla says on her youtube that you only need a little bit. So I tried the base again and put literally a dab on to my eye lid .... and Ta da!!!......It worked. I had no creasing what so ever. I feel in love with it. It goes on sorta nudish whiteish ( I know those are not really words) but fades with the color you put on. I bought it from Priscilla's Ebay site for $17 but now they have a website with other Scandalous products. I believe the base is $14 for 5 grams. Here it is: http://www.ilovescandalous.com/products.html. So check it out..Its a very good base.

Leishi

Okay..I bought these Leishi eye shadow pigments about 3 months go and I LOVE them!!! *Sorry If it's blurry*
video

I bought the Makeup cosmetics G88 at http://stores.ebay.com/JOSEJILL. He has 99.6 positive feedback and sends the stuff from Hong Kong. You have to use PayPal though. I got my package pretty fast. They are also brand new, never used eye shadows. The set comes with four different collections, which is 88 eye shadow pigments all together.

**The Shinny Glitter Collection (very glittery)
**The Pink/Purple Collection
**The Blue/Green Collection
**The Earth/Natural Collection

Oh ya..and 5 makeup brushes! I paid $43.59 all together, which is not bad considering the fact that you get 88 eye shadows. They are very easily blended, bright, long lasting, I had no skin irritation and there are so many different colors. There is a lot in each eyeshadow..so it will last you forever and you can also use them for your nails or eyeliner. The blues and the greens are honestly my favorite....They are so bright!!! Yay!!
So check his website out..I promise you will fall in love with LEISHI!!!..
