Hypershine Gloss

This package didnt look like this when I got it, I opened it and then remembered I had to take a picture. These lipglosses are well pigmented and glide on smoothly. These lipglosses have an applicator I never had before. Bristles and the product come from the middle.

These lipglosses have the coolest names!

Amazing Gifts for CHEAP! Part 1:EYES

I went to my Target and couldnt believe my eyes...I had found ELF products galore! A range of brushes and gift packages!!! Prices from 3-5 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went a little crazy. So to not overwhelm you guys I am breaking it into a series.
Starting with EYE shadows

This is their new 32 eyeshadow palette. Comes with a mirror and a sponge applicator. At first I was really impressed with this palette but as I did swatches im a little disappointed, only a little. There are still some colors with great pigmentation and it has really pretty colors. It has a variety of matte and shimmer finishes. Maybe with some primer they can show up better.

The Beauty Encyclopedia Neutrals Edition

This palette has 12 shadows some shimmer and matte but mostly matte. I like that there are some cranberry and dark green colors, adds variety. Brings a mirror, eyeliner and a sponge applicator. Also gives you directions on how to make a look.
(sorry no swatches, undecided if I should keep the palette or give it away)...

Bright Quad Collection

Unfortunatly these dont have names. They were just called Bright quad 1-4. Makes me wonder if they are only for the holidays. This package brought an eyeliner attached to a brush.

This was not only my favorite duo this was one of my favorite things I got!!! BEAUTIFUL blue with black with blue glitter! I thought that was so unique. Its has a pretty good pigmentation as well.

I thought I was going to give this duo away, I just saw it and immediately thought of Joker's costume. I dont know dont think there pretty together BUT separately they are BEAUTIFUL, especially the green. The green is an olive color but with a gold undertone and its shimmer, really pigmented too.

The cranberry is a lovely color and really pigmented. As for the white its on the chunky side, but still a lovely white with white shimmer.

Each package for $5.00. Each product has some good and not so good but still nice. I think they are great for stocking gifts or if you just want to add more to a gift. Good for all ages!

Finally Have It! Urban Decay Naked Palette

I have waited for months and months on this palette and FINALLY, I have it!! My mother bought for me as a belated bday gift...since they were always out of stock. I checked everyday on Ulta and Sephora to see if they came in stock. BUT anyways not too much detail with this palette since everyone and there mommas have reviewed it. Hence why I wanted it so bad. This is my first purchase from Urban Decay, so I get to try the urban decay primer potion. I love that it came with 2 eyeliners as well. Im loving the color toasted, its this deep champaigne color and the color sidecar which actually looks a lot like toasted but with glitter. Just wanted to share with you guys. Any questions about the palette just let me know.

Little Pieces of Heaven

Only in the month of November when these babies come to the grocery store. They are AMAZING! They are these pumpkin tarts. So creamy and the crust just melts in your mouth. Instead of flaky they pretty soft. The topping is this cream cheese whip soo good! I like these better than pumpkin pies because they taste better and look more festive.

Halloween 2010

This Halloween was a LOT different than others. I didnt get to go all out, or dressed up. Didnt even attend any halloween events. Instead I wanted to be with my family. It was Kyla's first Halloween and Evan's first traditional trick or treat. I actually prepared myself early for once and got Evan's costume in a month advance. Ive learned to never get costumes at last minute, you get hardly any variety. He picked a motorcross driver. It came with a mask that looked like their helmets. For Kyla I wish it was that easy. There was absolutly nothing that I liked. They were all animals or a vegatable. I wanted something SUPER girly. All of those costumes like princesses or fairies were out of her age range. I was getting annoyed I found dog costumes that were more on the girly side then for baby girls! After looking online and 5 different stores I was just about to give up BUT I went to Marshalls and found the perfect costume!!!!!!!! It was this cute lil onesie with a tutu and it brought socks like ballet slippers. My baby girl was a ballerina!!! PLUS I found a head piece that was pink and just completed the look. The best part each item were on sale!! I lucked out.

Wanting do something than look like a mom I decided to do something creative with my makeup. It was sooooooo much fun! If given the chance I could have done a lot more. Like add glitter or extend beyond my cheeks but I had to make dinner. lol.

I think this look could have been used for either a witch or a fairy.

Well I had a nice Halloween. Hope your Halloween was fun and safe!
