NOTD essie Chinchilly

I loooove this polish. Not only is the color gorgeous, it's so creamy and glides like a dream. So fun to apply I couldn't stop layering it.  I don't know how many I applied to be honest, ha.

Thanks for looking!

Products I used the most this month.

Hi everyone! Here are the products I gave the most attention to. Doesn't include shampoo or conditioner cause there's no counter space anywhere where I can put all the bottles I go though in a month, lol.

Products are:

l/s in Illamasqua Maneater, Hourglass Raven, and Illamasqua Tramp.
Jane Iredale  LipDrink lip balm (this smells like lemon sugar, Rachel, so you wouldn't like this lol)
e/s in MAC Brule and Ricepaper.
Blushes in NARS Luster (haven't put this one down since I bought it) and Illamasqua Lover.
Carmindy Loose powder and well as foundation.
Painterly PP
MAC Fascinating
NARS Dragon Girl velvet lip pencil.
Kleancolor Light Red n/p
Citre Shine serum (next to Bio Silk this is the best I've used)
Pantene Restorative hairspray (smells sooooo good and doesn't leave my hair crispy and dry)
And Estee Lauder Pleasures perfume

Here's a bonus pic. I was reorganizing one of my makeup drawers and thought you would like a pic of the process. :)

What products did you enjoy the most this month? Thanks for looking!

Have you heard? Red is the word!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a great weekend! :) Here's my little stash of red glosses. I don't normally like gloss so I don't have too many. These are the only ones I like. They are L-R Carmindy Juicy Cherry (sheer and shimmery), Avon Cherry Liquor (pigmented brown red, no shimmer), Avon Real Red (very pigmented bright red, no shimmer), Dior Little Red Dress (semi pigmented and shimmery), MAC Wicked Ways (semi pigmented shimmery fuschia red) , and MAC Russian Red (pigmented but not as much as Real Red bright intense blue based red, no shimmer). The one I get the most compliments on when I wear It is Real Red. Everyone always wants to know what's on my lips when I wear this. It's so pigmented/thick that I don't need to put a l/s underneath It and It lasts longer and doesn't evaporate like glosses usually do ime.

Same order as above.

Thanks for looking!! :)

Givenchy Le Prisme Mono e/s in Elegant Taupe

Hi everyone! Be prepared for taupe goodness. Taupe e/s is my FAV. My face was like this :O when I first saw this shadow. Elegant taupe ($29 for 0.12 oz, purchased at Sephora) is four e/s in. It's squared with four little squares that are all same color but different finishes that are matte, shimmery, and frosty. Can be used individually or all four color mixed. My fav square has gorgeous pink shimmery. I did a look with this yesterday. Wore the pink shimmer from lid to crease then the matte e/s as a crease color, MAC Brule as highlight, then liner and mascara.  Perfect for a simple and easy look.

Texture: Smooth, great pigmentation, and very long lasting. Lives up to It's price. Stayed put from morning to night.

Packaging: Exquisite! Logo on lid is mirrored and looks so elegant. Compact is smooth black metal and comes with a magnetic closure, mirror, and sponge applicator. Sponge applicator is angled at the end so It slides out, It's the coolest thing! *iz easily amused* Now THIS is packaging. Can't wait to buy more!


Swatched colors counterclockwise. Last swatch is all the colors mixed.

Thanks for looking! :)

Dior Rouge Dior Favori Red

A red a day keeps the doctor away! Well...At least that's what I think. :P Here's my latest red! Favori Red ($30 for 0.12 oz at, purchased at Sephora) is a pink based cherry red.
Formula: Creamy, very smooth, moisturizing, and glides right on. I barely touched my arm with It to swatch and It went on super pigmented with one swipe and like buttah! Also has a light scent. It's not strong so doesn't really bother me. Scent reminds me of L'Oreal l/s. Id prefer a more vanilla scent or no scent but It's no big deal. As long as It doesn't smell/taste like Avon's "Mega Impact" (quotations cause they are neither mega nor impact, but that's a separate story)  l/s I don't mind It. Feels so light and luxurious on my lips.

Packaging: SEXY and elegant. Outside is made of veryyy smooth sturdy plastic, which is actually good quality and not cheap and thin. Inside tube is metal. Top of the lid has the CD logo on top which looks and is made with the same plastic material as the e/s packaging. Love the little details on It from the CD on top, to engraved logo on the outside to the one on the lipstick itself.


I've been wearing It all day and It hasn't faded at all. Pretty impressive cause I've had many spoonfuls of Nutella. :D

Thanks for looking!

NARS Red Lizard l/s

Pic is very very close to what It looks like IRL. That's the lip brush I use to apply all my l/s.

Hi everyone! This is another red l/s I love. Red Lizard ($24 for 0.12 oz) is a semi matte sexy/sultry almost brick red but a tad bit darker and a littttle bit of brown thrown in. The formula is pigmented, glides on easily, long lasting, and smells good. Like Earl Grey tea (one of my fav teas) because It has Bergamont oil in It. Packaging is metal and covered in smooth rubber. I recommend you keep NARS l/s in the box they came in to keep them clean, smudges love the rubber.
If you're looking for a red that's more toned down and not so BAM in your face red, this is perfect for you.

With flash, so color is a little darker IRL.

Thanks for looking! :)

Too Faced Smokey Eye Palette

Hi everyone! If you love smokey eyes or dark eye looks in general, this palette is for you. Pigmented, long lasting, and great quality. I looove Too Faced products. Most of what I've gotten from them (except for the Glamour to go palette, I don't know what happened there) has been high quality, and the packaging is awesome to top It off. This comes with shadows for a 'Day Smoke', 'Fashion Smoke', and 'Classic Smoke.' Colors under Day Smoke are matte Ivory, shimmery taupe (this is my fav shade from the entire palette), and shimmery bronze. Fashion smoke colors are a shimmery peach, shimmery emerald green, and a dark shimmery blue. Colors in Classic smoke are a shimmery black, shimmery silver, and shimmery dark black gray. Extras in this palette include two double ended applicators (sponge and angled brush) and cards 3 cards with look suggestions. I actually really like the applicators this came with, especially the angled brush. 

You can get this for $35 for 0.36 oz of products at either Sephora or

Love that taupe!

Natural sunlight. Swatched over Avalon Organics Lavender lotion. Look at that taupe O_O
