NOTD: SinfulColors Sugar Sugar Moonicure

Hello everyone! I love Sugar Sugar. It's a gorgeous sparkling ruby slippers red with very subtle specks of gold. A knock out! Formula is a tad bit on the thicker side and needs at least two minutes in-between coats to avoid it thickening up (above with two coats) and taking longer to dry (I learned that the hard way). But it's okay, the gorgeous color is worth the little extra effort. ;)
Hope you like it!

Fave Deluxe Samples

Hi everyone! Here are the best products I have found through the awesomeness of free deluxe samples. I absolutely loooove these and will purchase the full-sizes. The products are:
  • Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum - This feels more like a light hair oil than a thick silicone serum - my hair just drinks it up! I only need 2 little drops; a little goes a long way. Smells divine! Like a seductive amber & sandalwood fragrance.
  • Carol's Daughter Smoothing Blow Dry Cream - I don't use it to blow dry but to instead define my waves; it does a great job and keeps my hair in place all day. It also smells amazing.
  • tarte Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder with PM20 - This is one of the best powders I have ever used. The finish is more of a glow-y soft-focus finish rather than a matte or chalky and dry finish. Sets my foundation in place all day without having to touch up all. I also found that it improved my skin; I can't say that about any other powder I've used.
Thanks for reading!:)


Products available here:
Though I got a sample at Sephora of the Smoothing Cream I can't find a link to it at their site.:/

Essie Fiji, Sephora by OPI Hollywood if I Could, & Caviar Accent NOTD

Hello everyone! I'm just addicted to Hollywood if I Could. I got it just before Christmas at Sephora for $5 on clearance and ever since then I cannot stop wearing it; I love it so much! Especially over nude shades! This probably won't be the only NOTD I will post wearing this.;P 

Thanks for stopping by!

Top Ten Favorites of 2012

As you can see: I love this palette.

Hi everyone! Late to the party, I know. But, better late than never, I'd say! Right? Yeah? *Crickets*

My favorite products, in no particular order:

  • Naked 2 - I reach for this every single day. Blackout is my brow powder, Foxy is always on my brow bone, and Bootycall always on the inner corners of my eyes. Though I'll never get used to that name, lol.
  • Chanel Poudre Universelle Compacte - Light coverage and sets foundation with minimal touch-up required throughout the day.
  • Diorskin Forever - Lightweight coverage that leaves skin glowing and dewy.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Illumin8 With Youthful Synergy Complex Bronzer - Sun Kissed - This is the only bronzer I ever reach for. It's perfectly warm and gives the most natural and believable sun-kissed look. I mostly use it just on my cheeks as a blush. I'm already brown (hollaaaaa) so I don't particularly need an all over bronze. 
  • Laura Geller Blush & Brighten - Honey Dipped - Aside from Sun Kissed this is the other blush I reach for the most. It's so glamorous.
  • Yves Saint Laurent Eyeliner Effect Faux Cils - Deep Black - Very black and very creamy so it's easy on the eyes and doesn't tug.
  • MAC Lip Pencil - Cherry - Like Rubywoo in the form of a pencil.
  • Estee Lauder Pure Color Matte - Red Velvet - This formula is wonderful, more of a comfortable and flexible matte.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlighting Creme Duo - St. Tropez - Best Highlighter ever for the very top of the cheekbones. I pair this with matte blushes.
  • It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In - Conditions lightly, defines my waves, and smells amazing.

Hope everyone's year is off to a great start!
