Hard Candy Honeymoom Blush

Since my last Hard Candy purchase, I have been very satisfied with their products. On my latest trip to Wal-Mart I picked up Honeymoon Blush. I love it, only thing is that it's more of a highlight than a blush.

Even though the color looks very orangy, it is actually a really sheer pearly color. I use this as an all over shimmer. It is a very subtle shimmer, not overpowering at all. Perfect for the ideal daytime shimmer.

REVIEW: Essential Tools Exfoliating Facial Sponge

Essential Tools Exfoliating Facial Sponge
PRICE: approx. $1

This sponge was way to rough and harsh on my skin. It left my skin feeling stripped and all red. However, I did have a little whitehead and it did remove that. My skin did feel softer, but the pain while scrubbing ever so lightly was horrible. In the end it was only $1, so you get what you pay for. Maybe if I invest in a better quality one, it will work better.
Exfoliating?!?!? More like Sandpaper!!!

The Christian Louboutin Cat Burglar Barbie

Kinda makes me wish I had a machine that could make all those tiny little Barbie shoes a size 8 so that I could wear them. LOL!
I wanna be Barbie!
The Biotch has EVERYTHING!

Cold Weather=Dry Skin

As the weather becomes cooler here in Arizona, I notice my skin becoming more dry and my lips get very chapped and wind burned. I have searched high & low for a healing salvation to my dry skin, but all attempts have failed....until now.
Nivea Creme
OMG! Fantastic thick cream that has come to save my dry hands and rough cuticles. I love the way this creme smells, so fresh and clean. I purchased this creme at Target for $2.99 in the travel section.
Nivea Kiss of Moisture Essential Lip Care & Hydrating Lip Care SPF 4
I love them! I use the Essential Lip Care (Darker Blue Tube) at night before bed. And I use the Hydrating Lip Care with SPF 4 (lighter blue tube) throughout the day. They smell so yummy, just like the lotion. I have tried so many lip balms such as Burt's Bees, Chapstick, Blistex, you name it and they did no justice to my dry lips. These lip products are heaven sent to me! I swear by them. I also purchased these at Target for $2.99 each.
Check out Nivea's website for other lip and body products.

Holiday Party Time

Holiday Parties!
Wooo whooo!
Saturday I attended my work's Holiday Party & it was pretty cool.
Here's how I wore my makeup.
I decided to keep it neutral, yet still rock a smokey eye.
(these pic are from when I got back from the party)
Get Ur Face On:
Mary Kay Concealer
Studio Fix Powder
Painterly Paint Pot
Assemblage Eye Shadow Quad
Hoola Bronzer (contouring)
Dallas Blush(my new ♥)
Creme D' Nude
Striptease Lip Gloss
I also had my hair extensions put in. I miss my long hair =(
I dyed my hair the night prior to the party.
I wish the color never faded and always remined like this....
only in a perfect world.

Not in the mood for false lashes so I just winged the eyeliner and applied tons of Lash Blast Mascara

Maybe she loves all the Hello Kitty & The Simpson's Ornaments.

Avon Lip Glosses

I recently purchased some AVON products. It had been ages since I'd purchased something from AVON, so after flipping through a catalogue, these 2 products caught my eye.
Blooming Pout Lip Gloss
This is a lip gloss that helps to "plump" lips. It also starts out clear, but gradually turns to a rosy pink. It has a tingling minty sensation upon application. The tingling stops after a few minutes. I didn't notice a big "plumping" effect.

Colortrend Shimmering Lip Gloss in Pink Sparkle.
This is a cute light pink lip gloss that has glitter reflects added to it. I loved that it wasn't too sticky.
Both products came out to less than $7

Essie Nails a la' Shayne Lamas

The reason for this compulsive Essie Nail Polish Purchase was greatly influenced my Shayne Lamas for the E! Channel's "Leave It To Lamas" show. I recently saw an episode in which she is wearing this gorgeous soft pinkish white nail polish, I fell in love with her color! I new I had to hunt it down. I saw a close up of the nail polish and realized it was an Essie polish.
The hunt was on!
Here's what I got...

I purchased them at ULTA
They were buy 2 get one free.
Essie polishes are usually $8
I love the colors!

Here is my final product:

(color is a bit pinkier in person)
This has to be my favorite color as of now!

e.l.f. Eye Encyclopedia @ Target

e.l.f. The Beauty Encyclopedia for the Eye
Purchased at: Target
How Much: $5
Quality from 1-10: 8

Comes with
2 Cream Eye Shadows
1 Black Eye Liner
1 Applicator 1/2 brush 1/2 sponge

Also includes
12 powder eye shadows
Look at those colors!
Perfect for a sultry sexy smoke eye!

Also comes with a "How to do a smokey eye look" guide
Overall this product was fairly good, that's why I rated it an 8. The powder shadows are pretty good but the cream one's crease and that's a no-no. The eye liner is pretty blah and the applicator is fairly decent.
I would think this is an affordable, yet inexpensive gift to give to any makeup addict you know!
What I also love about this kit is how portable it is. You can just toss it in your purse and you've got your complete eye makeup on the go.

No Longer A NARS Virgen

Don't you just love how TJMaxx has some amazing deals?!
I know I do! Look what I found Wednesday....

They best part of all, it was only $29.99!

I've always wanted Deep Throat Blush & Striptease Lip Gloss,
so when I saw this gift set, I knew it had to be mine!
I guess I can officially say, I'm no longer a NARS virgen.

REVIEW: The Body Shop Pomegranate Body Polish

The Body Shop Pomegranate Body Polish
PRICE: $3.99
RATING FROM 1-10: 10

(according to The Body Shop)
A luxurious body polish for daily use with exfoliating particles to gently ease away dead skin cells, leaving the skin soft, smooth and delicately scented with a sweet juicy berry fragrance.
WOULD I BUY IT AGAIN: For sure I will
I love the scent of pomegranates! This body polish has tiny walnut pieces to help exfoliate the skin. It is not harsh at all and the smell is very soothing. It left my skin very soft to the touch and also visibly radiant. I love that I got it so cheap too! It's typically $6 at the regular Body Shop. Thanks TJMaxx for saving me a few bucks!
