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


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
  • NSFW
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!!

New! L.I.P. Color Cream Palette!!!!!Yay!! from Mehron

Picture from: Mehron.com

Oh my gosh!!! I cant wait to buy this lip cream palette.....I want it really because of the cotton candy and hot pink color!!! I Love it!! It's just cheaper if you buy it in the palette...so ya. It's 32.95 (I believe) but if you buy them singly..they are 5.95 each.

Picture from: Mehron.com
(Is it not the prettiest color ever)

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.
