  Hi everyone! I was lucky enough to win Pigments & Palettes Anastasia of Beverly Hills giveaway, yay! I was extra excited cause I never ever EVER win anything! Not even at board games (if you ever want to win by a landslide, play against me). Well, maybe I can't say I never win anything cause lately my inbox has been exploding with emails saying I won the lottery from some foreign country and all I have to do to receive "my" money is to give them my bank account. How simple is that?
 I took loads of pictures, the presentation was very pretty and I loved how everything was packed.

Highlighting Creme Duo-St. Tropez, Illumin8 Duo-On Set, and HydraFull Gloss- Moi

St Tropez blended and unblended; creme blush unblended and blended

I seriously loved everything! The gold highlighter is literally the perfect shade for my coloring, I'm very impressed. The shadows are neutral just like I like and very very pretty. Moi is SO pretty and has a faint vanilla scent; I'm wearing it over Brave Red and It's gorg and not sticky or runny. Thanks so much to both Anastasia of Beverly Hills and Meredeth!

MAC Cherry Lip Liner

      Cherry is bright and perfect for Ruby Woo, Russian Red, or any other blue, orange, or neutral bright red. For a more brownish red or a brick red I recommend MAC Brick (matches Viva Glam I perfectly). I wore Cherry today with Brave Red and it suited it perfectly. It stays in place in my experience and doesn't bleed.


MAC Brave Red

                                 Brave Red (Cremesheen) is a long lasting and opaque neutral red with a creamy finish. Has a tad bit of shimmer to it which is not noticeable at all once applied.

Lipstick Organizer

This hold about 75% of my collection. Hopefully someday I'll find another one of these organizers, but for now the rest sit in my drawer. Someone asked if I organized them by color...Technically I did since they're all red, lol! :)

My Taupe Collection

Hello, my name is Sonia, and I'm taupe-obsessed. It may come as no surprise since aside from red lipstick, taupe is my other favorite topic. Enjoy and thanks for reading!


January Favorites

Hi everyone! My favorite products are:

Diorskin Nude concealer, Hourglass Icon, Mychelle Sun Shield SPF 28 sunscreen, Yves Saint Laurent cream liner in Deep Black, Diorskin Forever foundation, Estee Lauder Shimmering Jewel Powder, and Naked 2. I think I've used Naked 2 more times in the short amount of time I've had it than I have used Naked, it's amazing. Mychelle's sunscreen is the very best I have ever used. In my experience, sunscreens are usually greasy, this one has clear zinc so it's matte (without looking or being dry) from when I apply it to when I wash my face. I also find it's hydrating enough for my dry skin and doesn't cause breakouts.  

Thanks for reading!

NOTD- MAC Shirelle

      Shirelle was a Christmas gift from my sister; I put it on the moment I took it out of the gift box and I have been exclusively (toes included) using it ever since. It's a rich blue-based true red with zero shimmer. The brush is amazing, very soft and contours into every little corner. Applied Sally Hansen Hard As Nails top coat to set, no base coat.

Thanks for reading!
