Fabulous Mirror!

I saw Beauty Crush talk about Les Tai Tai Model Mirrors on her YouTube. They just looked sooo cool! A large, but compact light up mirror is perfect for any girl on the go. And the designs are all so cute! They used to be $35 I think, but now they are $25. I ordered 1 Model Mirror and 1 extra battery as a backup. I received a package with just a mirror in it one day so I emailed the company about the battery, wondering if it was being sent separately or if it was just a mistake. Then, the very next day, I received another package containing ANOTHER mirror and 2 batteries! It was a beautiful mistake! lol So I gave my sister the extra. Check em out! Maybe you'll get 2...

Kat Von D True Romance Palette in Truth

I got this palette because it was on sale on I thought it would be nice because of my green eyes. The pigmentation is a little off on some of the colors. Also, the staying power on a couple is really weak as well. The colors together are really unique and worth a shot if you like those colors. I still need to test it more before I would recommend it to anyone. So we shall see...

Too Faced Eye Love Palette

This palette was a 500 point perk at Sephora. Since they haven't had the best perks lately, I decided to jump all over this. It also came with a mini Shadow Insurance. The palette is made up of 2 shadows from each of the Too Faced palettes until that point. (Naked Eye, Natural Eye, Smokey Eye, and Romantic Eye) The shadows in the Smokey Eye section are from the old Smokey Eye palette, not the one I have. This palette is nice to have just as a back up to the others. Or if you want a palette that gives you 4 or more different looks. But just as with all of the other Too Faced palettes, the quality is very nice.

Too Faced Natural Eye Palette

This is my oldest Too Faced palette that's why they have so much more use than the other ones. This is a very good palette to have in your collection. There are a couple colors that are dupes for some in the UD Naked palette. This one is a little thicker than the others because it came with a double ended brush thingy. I really liked having the angled brush with the palette because it made using the dark colors as eyeliner much easier. The only color that I am not a fan of is Nude Beach. It's a pretty color, but the glitter falls out and gets all over your face. Also, the Fashion eye look card picture didn't turn out so it is missing.

Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette

I wanted this palette because I have green eyes and I thought that it would be perfect for me. One thing that I didn't realize is that this palette is mostly matte colors and I'm not really into that. However, this palette does contain one of my favorite highlight color in Soulmates. It's super soft and just amazing. This is probably my least favorite of my 4 Too Faced palettes surprisingly enough. But I still use it from time to time.

Coming Soon...

 Lip haulage! With swatches!

Too Faced Smokey Eye Palette

I was really excited to see that Too Faced was redoing their Smokey Eye Palette because their first one was a little too goth for me. The Too Faced palettes are great for beginners or for girls that want a quick grab n go look. These colors are really gorgeous and good quality. Plus the direction cards make it simple for the girls that don't know where to start. I would recommend these to anyone. Worth every penny.

 OPI's Mermaid Tears
OPI's Go For It Green

I was sooo in love with this mani! Both colors applied really well. Go For It Green is a great layering polish and I can't wait to try it over some other colors.
