I wanted to share this gorgeous eyeshadow I found recently. It is the Buxom Style Icon shade, which they describe as a metallic taupe. I see it more of a Golden Olive. It's gorgeous for day or night wear. I had never tried Buxom Shadows until a friend came to visit with a palette full. The color pay . . .
This is a limited edition shade called Black Scotch from Bobbi's Scotch on the Rocks Collection. I would definitely sweep this one up before it runs out of stock if I were you! It is a very beautiful chocolate caviar color with golden copper flecks in it. I really like it because it is intense . . .
The new Clinique A Black Honey Affair Palettethat just came out recently is another favorite of mine. For 36$, these palettes are more on the affordable side compared to the Naked Palettes by Urban Decay, but the quality of the shadow and texture is just as good in my opinion. The colors are very . . .
Today I wanted to do a little shimmer but nothing too dramatic. I don't even know why I wanted shimmer as it is a Saturday afternoon...but it's gorgeous out, and my husband and I are going to be doing some fun errands together :). Base: I used Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in No 30 as a base. I have . . .
Me wearing Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Sparkle in Smokey Topaz I recently had the opportunity to try out the new Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Sparkle, which doubles as a shadow and liner. I chose the color smokey topaz. To me, this was kind of the same exact product as Bobbi's Cream eyeshadows that . . .
I'm so glad I picked this palette up recently. When I first saw it, I thought "what a boring little palette that is". I don't know where I changed my mind..maybe I read a blog or saw some youtube video using it..I don't quite remember. Either way, I have been LOVING this for every day makeup for . . .
Above: Me wearing Cailyn Gel Eyeliner in Black and Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Acid Pink I recently discovered the Cailyn line of cosmetics while at my hairdressers recently. Rock Paper Scissors Salon in downtown Rochester is where I go, owned by Jason Ripple. How clever of him to bring this . . .
The new Benefit They're Real "Push-up" Liner is literally hands down the most impressive innovative beauty product I have used so far. This is the most fool proof gel liner you could possibly find, and it stays on like a tattoo. It takes a heavy duty makeup remover to get it off, but my trusty . . .
I was so excited to try this Loreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner (Find it Here) based on the fact that they claim it has 16 hour wear. I have been on a forever search to find a drug store brand that compares to my trusty Bobbi Brown Longwear pencils. Alas, this eyeliner really made me mad!!! If . . .
The older I get, the less I feel like I should be wearing bold eyeliner all the way around my eye. I have been doing it since I was young, and am used to myself with it...but maybe at some point I will have to tone it down. The new Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon-25$ is a nice change from the . . .
Bobbi Brown's Long-wear Pencil Eyeliner has been my all time FAVORITE since it came out. I seriously don't know what I would do without it! I usually get the Black Plum color for my lower lash line because it brings out the yellow in brown eyes but looks black at first glance with subtle purple . . .
BASE: BEFORE APPLYING SMASHBOX CC CREAM: AFTER SMASHBOX CC CREAM (A SAMPLE I AM TRYING OUT-Seems to have better coverage than a typical CC Cream): APPLICATION OF NARS RADIANT CONCEALER IN CUSTARD (NEW FAVORITE CONCEALER): BLENDING WITH REAL TECHNIQUES CONTOUR BRUSH (MY FAVORITE FOR CONCEALER . . .
Soooo...It's that time of year. I can't say I'm 100% thrilled about the fall here, because I knowww how brutal the winter is probably going to be. Who came up with the idea of global warming??! It seems wrong where I live. I am trying to enjoy the frigid chill that has set in...I am currently . . .
So I really challenged myself this time to do a look with a FULL face of drugstore picks. I'd have to say, it doesn't look any different than if I did it with high price items! I have a penchant for department store stuff, but some days, it's helpful to use cheaper stuff to save my really good . . .
Had a quick minute to post this eyeliner that I tried and love for something different when you have tan skin...This is the Loreal Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in Teal. I only put it on the bottom lash line so it's not too "in your face". I might try this with other fun shades while I'm still a . . .
