NEW! A glowing, satin-finish foundation with sheer and build-able coverage. Replete with skincare benefits and the NARS Complexion Brightening Formula, skin is hydrated, more luminous, softer and smoother. Used daily, Sheer Glow Foundation improves skin brightness, radiance and texture. For normal to dry skin types.
Sephora is currently offering their online Friends and Family 20% off promotion from October 19th – November 2nd (use code FF2009 at checkout). So what better time to test out a few of the products that I have been lemming over the past couple of months. Of those products I knew that I really wanted to try the Nars Sheer Glow foundation because just about everyone I know is raving over this foundation. 

From its dewy glow to the light to medium build-able coverage it offers what's not to like. Well that is what I wanted to know… So over the next couple of weeks I will be testing this product and at the end of the three weeks I will give you my review. Be sure to bookmark this blog and check back to see how this foundation holds up!

MAC Dsquared2

Every season the fashion crowd is up and on the run, crazy for the fierce and sexy fun we’ve come to expect from designers Dan and Dean Caten, the Canadian twins who know how to pack a punch and throw a party! With their haute hi-jinx and body-beautiful clothes for boys and girls, a collaboration with MAC simply could NOT be avoided! “DSquared2 and MAC are on the same trip!” says Dan. This collection brings us to the Ziegfield Follies by way of Grey Gardens, a bit disheveled, a little Girl Interrupted, both dramatically hip and dangerously sexy.

It starts with a strong, sooty, blackest-ever wild-child eye…a new Greasepaint Stick also in blue and violet versions, and Pro Gloss to create it. Neutral and perfected skin will get more drama with highlighting and low lighting from Sculpt and Shape Powders and the 165 Tapered Cheek/Highlight Brush all the better to achieve it. And finally, the totally nude Pro Lip Erase does its stuff, followed by a light Lipstick and Lip Conditioner to put the lilt and lift back in…. But the cynosure of this season’s scintillating collaboration is the daring, dramatic slightly demented DSquared2 eye. Have fun with it!

Flashing flecks of lustrous glimmer give lips a new kind of high-beam shine, while the balm-effect of the pillow-top comfort creme keeps the supple going and going. For dazzle with absolute comfort, it's better than brilliant!


“From “Back to Black” beehive and eyeliner to Steven “80s” Sprouse-in-the-House kohl and fringe to Gareth Pugh London New Goth, Black is simply beyond. Lips, nails, eyes there’s no more dramatic way to declare your desire, separate your sensibility, celebrate your magnetism. They WILL surrender to a Blackfire Glimmerglass, Rapidblack Penultimate Eyeliner, a slash of Greasepaint Stick, and the hot scratch of Baby Goth Girl Nail Lacquer. Style Black is a way of life, a shadowy and mysterious figure of fantasy, even for just one dark and dangerous night.”

There are black lips, dark smoky eyes and plenty of Goth looks to be created with this collection. With hardly a hint of color MAC gives us the Style Black collection allowing us to unleash our innermost fantasies of darkness.

Now I must admit when I first saw this collection I was not really impressed with all the dark looks and such. However, gradually this collection has won me over. What really sold me were the CCBs (cream color bases). Typically when you layer an eye shadow over top of a CCB it takes the color to a whole new level. So you can imagine what using a darker CCB will do for the shadow. It gives it an unbelievable burst of color and adds plenty of definition to the eye. So you better believe I snapped up both of them – black and bat black.

Just a few things that I picked up from my local Sephora. I always love a good shopping trip!

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Wednesday, July 8, 2009


So it has been a while since my last post and I thought it was time for a quick update. For those of you who follow me on Twitter you know that I have been on a makeup ban for the past couple of months because we are saving for a house. However we recently found out that the Seller has agreed to pay 60% of the closing costs. Which means when MAC had their annual Friends & Family web sale I was able to do some major damage. Pictures & video of my haul to be uploaded soon...

Okay girls I have to make this really quick cause I'm at work and this is so not work related! LOL On the regular MAC website they have started selling the Pro blush & eyeshadow refills in the pan, the empty eyeshadow quads, and the empty blush & eyeshadow palettes as well! How AWESOME is that!!! Yesterday I posted a quick vid on my YouTube channel proclaiming this glorious news and I wanted to post it on here for you too. So what are you waiting for go and spread the good news.
