Friday, March 12, 2010


Hi lovelies
yesterday i went to the mall and had to get some stuff from the new MAC Give me Liberty of London collection.
Honestly i was kind of disappointed with this collection because first off, Ever hip lipstick is just like Curtsy i swatched them together and they are exactly the same!!! and i still have a full tube of curtsy oh well.
Another is Prim & Proper blush, its also just like MAC Buff even the mac girl said so my ultimate fav blush is buff so i bough it anyways since i already hit pan of buff =]
Lastly, Shell Pearl Beauty powder kind of reminded me of Spaced out but a little toned down because it looks more natural when applied. I mean this is just my opinion so dont grill me on this lol i do love the packaging though its so cute!
So here's what i picked up

Right next to the MAC Booth in the mall theres a store that sells lots of NYX products which i love, and well i needed a pink lip liner for my pink l/s so i picked up the color Rose which is such a gorgeous pink, I also picked up NYX round l/s in Power.

I was watching one of Jo's videos on youtube and she said that power was a dupe for MAC lavender Whip which is a limited edition lipstick that i have been looking for everywhere. So i had to have this, thanks girl!~
Well thats it, what did you guys pick up from this collection???

40 Q's Tag

I got this from Laura
i wanted to do it tooo!

~ Skincare ~

1) How many times do you wash your face daily?
I would have to say i wash it 2x a day. In the morning when i get up so i can be fresh and ready to start my day. And at night when im getting ready for bed, i wash it to remove all the makeup and gunk!

2) What skin type do you have?
I would say combination dry in the winter and oily in the summer which blows, i wear moisturizer all year round.

3) What is your current facial wash?
I am in love with Cetaphil. This to me is the best facial wash, it cleans up my face pretty well without it making it dry or oily.

4) Do you exfoliate?
Yes, i exfoliate once a week using St. Yves apricot scrub, im trying to finish up the tube though cuz i really want to try something much more gentle.

5) What brand do you use?
St. Yves

6) What moisturiser do you use?
I love using my Nivea creme its perfect, most people say its too oily for them, well when you do first put it on its is oily but then my face just sucks it in and its nice and soft.

7) Do you have freckles?
Yes, ugh i hate them so much.

8) Do you use eye cream?
Yes, I have been using Clarins for the day and i use eye Miracle Worker at night.

9) Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
i have acne prone skin, but honestly the secret to keeping my face from breakouts STOP touching my face. People never notice how much they touch their face throughout the day, from a chin scratch to an eye rub and so on and so forth, and in between that you just went to the store and touched the counter where there are tons of germs lurking. So i learned to not touch my face and i dont breakout as often.

10) Did you ever have to use Pro-Activ?
No i heard its very drying.

~ Make-up ~

11) What foundation do you use?
I use the Revlon Photoready on my i have time to put on makeup days, and I use MAC studio fix powder on my im in a rush days.

12) How about concealer?
I use mac select cover up

13) Do you know your undertone colour?
actually no, and i did take a makeup class before and knew what it was

I love them, they make my makeup look that much more stunning and my eyes big or small depending on the lashes and what look im going for.

15) Did you know you were supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes i know, but who actually follows that rule??? Food doesnt even expire when it says it does, so if its not dry or nasty looking i figure why not still use it.

16) What brand of mascara do you use?
am in love with L'oreal Voluminous mascara its amazing and Lancome Definicil High Def masacra my HG

17) Sephora or Mac?
Both, if you could buy MAC at sephora then i would say Sephora but since they dont i love them both equally

18) Do you have a Mac Pro card?

19) What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?
The tools i use on a regular basis is my Mac 187, 227, 224, 252 and large 182 kabuki i think its the 182 or is it the 188?

20) Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
I use UDPP

21) For the face?
Usually i dont but if im going be outside where its cold or windy, or im going to be dancing i use MAC prep and prime

22) What is your favourite eyeshadow colour or shade?
Purple. I love purples, most of my eye looks include purple, i love using MAC sketch to darken up my crease and make my eye looks that much more dramatic.

23) Do you use pencil or liquid liner?
I use both, blacktrack fluidline for lashline and Urban decay 24/7 IN Zero on my lower lashline

24) How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
its only happen a couple of times.

25) What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I think they are great i love them because they last you a long time and they could be used in so many different ways.

26) Do you use mineral makeup?

27) What is your favourite lipstick?
This is tricky, my fav lippie has to be Revlon Pink Pout and MAC Curtsy they are just perfect.

32) Do you go to CCO's?Cosmetic Company Outlet?
I went twice first time i got some good stuff, second time was disappointed

33) Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I did it once because the teacher is a friend of mine, she is very talented and it was so much fun

34) Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
yes, i have shaky hands when im nervous, like if im going on a date but usually im pretty precise

35) Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Wearing too much blush that you begin to look like you have a fever and ur cheeks are super red or something thats so ugly.

36) Do you like colourful shades of makeup (lipstick or eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I love both, when i go out i do colorful looks, when im going to school or work i do neutrals.

37) Which celebrity always has great makeup?
Kim K, she is always on point with her makeup and Gwen Stefani always sporting that gorgeous red lip

38) If you could leave the house using just ONE makeup item, what would you use?

39) Could you leave the house without any makeup on?
yes i do it often, i like to get as much sleep in as i can, plus i like to let my face breathe

40) Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Mmmm...people tell me i look good without, but it think i look better with it on

41) In your opinion what is the BEST makeup line?
Well i own different brands, they all work for the purposes i bought them for, so to answer that i cant say the best line is this...because one brand can have something that works really well that another one doesnt, so i like all the brands.

42) What do you think of makeup?
I think its an art that anyone can master it with the right tools and practice. Makeup is meant to be fun and to make someone feel that much better, its like heroin for woman lol jk

Hello beauty bloggers, so lately there’s been a lot of fuss about us and our “cred” shall I say. There was all this talk about how beauty bloggers shouldn’t be considered press and what not. Well ladies and gents, I feel that we are press, everyone is. If you have your own take on something, well why cant it be taken seriously. These so called certified people are regulars like you and I, yes they went to school, but they are judging and reviewing products based on what works for them as well. Well I thought that’s what we were doing???

Anyways enough about that business, there are many sites out there like MakeupAlley and Spektra which I love because you can look up products you have been lemming and find out there reviews from people who have tried them. These sites are very helpful, they help me decide whether or not to purchase an item. Im not saying that just because an item got a low rating on these sites I wont go and purchase them, Im just taking their advice into consideration.

Well there’s a new site now, that well, Im in love with. Its mySkin, this website is a place where it asks you several questions based on your skin, hair, and life to determine what is best suited for you. Your profile shows the products that you are or were using in the past, when it comes to skincare of course. It finds all the ingredients you use on a daily basis and gives you recommendations on what products you should try, and what people like us are loving right now.
You will find the price tags on these items and what they cost you when you use them daily which I find very interesting. Gives me an idea of how much I spend on skin care. Another great thing about mySkin is that there are no advertisements for products that will try to lure you in to buy. I like having the liberty to browse around and search for stuff without having the pressure of a high end brand being at the top of the list because they purchase there spot up there.
They have over 80,000 products listed in their database so even some of that mom and pop shop stuff show up on there. Exciting! There is also a forum so you can connect with others and ask questions about certain items, or anything skin care related.

Well that’s a lot of information for you, isn’t it? Well mySkin is invite only because it hasnt officially launched yet. But the lovely people there provided me with a special code so my readers can go ahead and check it out. Just enter lovelymakeup in the invite code section and whoala!

Let me know what you think about this site!

FOTD: Using Alice in Wonderland Palette

Hey beauties,
i come to you today with a look i did for school yesterday, these pics i took when i got home and was getting ready for bed, hints the spaghetti strap top and messy hair lol

What i used:
  • Eyes: UDPP, Alice In wonderland Palette, MAC e/s in Soft Force, CG lashblast Mascara, MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, and i used this shadow from coastal scents palette:

  • Face: Revlon Photoready Foundation, MAC blush in ripe peach, MAC MSF in Soft and gentle?
  • Lips: Viva Gaga, NYX Whipped lipgloss


February Favourites!

Last Month i used these items non stop:

  1. Sample size Urban Decay Pocket Rocket in Doug- this is such a cute color, i wear it even when i dont wear makeup. The only thing about this is the scent...i asked several of my friends to identify the scent and everyone agreed it smelled like waffles and syrup lol i kind of dont like that.
  2. MAC Lavendar Wind Lipglass- this is such a sheer gloss but if applied over certain lipsticks you can definitely notice the purple in it, its so pretty.
  3. Lancom Definicil High Def Mascara- this is sample that came with some stuff my mom bought and i love it, makes my lashes super thick and thats what i look for in a mascara.
  4. NYX Jumbo Pencil in Iced Mocha-Love this color, i like using this as a liner on my waterline, or as a base when doing neutrals.
  5. MAC Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach- This is my HG blush, i mean it when i say EVERYONE should have this blush in their collection im not joking, it compliments all skin colors.
  6. Revlon PhotoReady Foundation- this is also my HG foundation, it glides on so easily and it makes my face look wonderful lol if you havent tried it you must.
  7. MAC Crushed Metal Pigments Stack 2- These are gorgeous colors, they are very neutral which i can used with pretty much any shadow i want, i have been reaching for these often.
Well thats it for my favs, what are yours??
