Duo 5:Urban Decay Eyeliner

At first I wasnt really impressed with this eyeliner. My eyes are SUPER watery at times and it wouldnt stay on my waterline to save my life. Then the tip is rather wide and it gives you a big line on my lash line. But after a few uses its been beyond amazing. It is super creamy and soft. Being so soft you can easily smudge it and it has pretty good staying power. This eyeliner has 2 colors, zero which is a black and whiskey, a rich brown. I like to apply zero on my upper and lower lash line and have whiskey on my waterline. It makes my eyes look less heavy. REALLY love to use this for my everyday looks and when Im on the go.

Duo 3:ELF Bronzing and Blush Powder

There is no better duo then this blush and bronzer palette from ELF. This duo has a coral blush with gold glitter. The bronzer does have some shimmer but not noticeable once on the skin. Both powders are so nice and smooth, best of all SUPER pigmented! I love that the palette also includes a really nice size of a mirror. Best thing about this palette.......its only 3 bucks!!!

Duo 2:Purple Eyeshadows & Revlon's Pink Pout

It never fails whenever I have a purple eyeshadow look I always match it up with Revlon Pink Pout lipstick. It is just the perfect combo. Pink Pout is a matte pink lipstick with a purple undertone to it. Whenever I want a purple smokey look I usually go for my Wet'N'Wild palette in Lust. On the left side of the palette has the perfect 3 shades for a purple look. All shades are matte and SUPER pigmented!

Do you have an eyeshadow lip duo?

Duo Series: My Kids (An Update)

This week I'm going to do something a bit different. Im going to post everyday a couple of my fave duo's. Mostly beauty related and of course some random stuff. Today Im going to present my FAVE duo of all time, my kids! Here is a lil update

Evan is just a dream child. He is so polite and well-mannered. He still is obsessed with Pixar's Cars. Really enjoys playing with Ipod. Im helping begin some reading skills with the Leap Frog books. I am BEYOND proud.

Kyla has improved SO much this month. On the 25th she turned 9 months. She has 2 teeth and one more on the way. Kyla was horrible with tummy time, the girl would SCREAM everytime I tried. BUT all of sudden she now enjoys it and is now CRAWLING!!!! She also can sit on her own. She is getting big so fast, I just want to burst into tears of sadness and happiness.

Happy Sunday Everyone and keep in look out for my posts this week!

UD: Gunmetal Eyeshadow Dupe

Urban Decay / Wet'N'Wild

So I found a dupe for Urban Decay's Gunmetal eyeshadow. Gunmetal is like a grey but with a blue undertone and has a metallic finish with silver glitter. It is the perfect color for a smokey eye and one of my personal fave colors in the NAKED palette. The dupe I found was is in the Wet'N'Wild palette. The color is exactly the same!! The only difference was that the WnW eyeshadow didnt have silver glitter but it did have shimmer. Both are highly pigmented! Although the Urban Decay shadow is easier to blend.

My FIRST Lush Products

Believe it or not. Im a newbie to LUSH! Ive heard SO much about the store that I had to check it out. When you first step in or even a few steps entering the store you can smell this powerful lavender floral perfume scent! Workers EVERYWHERE being so cheery and happy, eager to give demonstrations and help! Best customer service Ive ever received. ANYWAYS- My husband picked out the ones that smelled the best to us. Even though he is a LOT more picky than I am. Everything smelled FANTASTIC to me. hehe.

So far Ive tried the Comforter which smells like a blackberry, perfumy scent to it. It makes the best bubbles and turns the water PINK! Ive used it 3 times and still have lots left. The kids really enjoyed as well. My son couldnt get over the fact the water turned pink!
The French Kiss was sadly not impressive. The bubbles didnt last very long, but the water turned slighty purple. Lavender usually makes you calm and sleepy, this however didnt. But it smelled FANTASTIC!
Space girl, a bath bomb, unfortunatly didnt do anything SPECTACULAR! It just sizzled and left the water like a grey color BUT it was pretty seeing the glitter float.
The Floating Island is a bath melt. In my opinion it smelled like a cupcake. It did leave me feeling nice and moisturized after my bath. :)
Honey I washed the kids was just a sample but I really like it. In my opinion it smells like honey and.....butter. HAHAHAHA. Its nice but I feel it doesnt do anything great to me.

The Comforter- 9.95
French Kiss-8.95
Floating Island-7.95
Sex Bomb-6.45
Space Girl-4.95
Think Pink-3.95

If you have any suggestions on your faves or combinations you like PLEASE let me know!

I have had this product for quite sometime now and I have been in love with it ever since. Im a mother so candles or scented oils are a BIG no no in my house. So for a long while it was always air freshners and things of that sort. Which were ok but I think the smell wears off easily and dont give you that relax feeling. So I went to Bath and Body Works and discovered this ridiculously AMAZING product. It is called a ScentBug, a home fragrance oil fan.
All The Great Things It Does
1.Easy To Use
It has a pop out slide where you insert the pad. Put 20 drops of the oil and close.
Then press the little button in front make sure the light turns green.
2.It Wont Spill
3.It Is Battery Operated
You can move it anywhere. No matches required
4.If It Falls It Wont Break
It is made of plastic
5.KID FRIENDLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Depending where you put it the smell can carry throughout the house! The one negative thing I must say on this product is I wish the packaging was just a bit cuter. It comes in black and white. You just need to check often they can have cute animals or colors depending on the season. This product cost me 12.50 and it comes with batteries and pads! If your a mother or tired of lighting candles HIGHLY recommand this.

Blue Me Away

I really wanted to use my Teenage Dream nailpolish from the Katy Perry collection but I think its too dull by itself. So I decided to partner it up with Blue me Away from Sally Hansen. I really like it but Teenage Dream basically just looks like a clear glitter. Wearing blue nailpolish takes me back as a little girl. I wore blue nailpolish all the time.

*Teenage Dream is only on my ring finger*
