I never thought I would wear a yellow polish, until I saw this beauty! It's like sunshine in a bottle.
Perfect for that pop of color in Spring. :)

Lancome Vintage Rose

  Please Bare with me while I figure out how to take pictures of myself. I really suck at this right now!
                       Just look at that blank stare into the camera! lol :D
      Anywho, I'd just like to share with you my first ever "big girl" lipstick. My first ever lipstick...well ever.
          My Mom took me to get a makeover at the Lancome counter a few years back, I don't know how many to be exact.   And this lipstick was one of the free gifts it came with.

Lancome vintage rose lined with NYX Peek-a-boo neutral.
I've been trying to find a good dupe now for about a year,  and I can't seem to come close enough.
So why is this shade so special?  Well, it has a beautiful purple iridescent sheen to it that makes this shade so unique. I've never come across anything like it. And it makes my lips look so juicy.

This is all I have left of it ladies, I'm running out of options!
For now, I'll just be savoring the remnants.
I might just have to re-purchase it at Lancome. It goes for $22, I'd rather find a MAC dupe for $15.
They re-designed the tube and now instead of just being called Color Design, it's called Color Design "Sensational Effects Lipcolor Smooth Hold."

Does anyone know of any dupes?? 
Please let me know!!

Herbal Essences going Throwback!

I am SO EXCITED for these shampoos to come back again! You do not even know!
I used to Love the Rose hips Shampoo and conditioner and that's all I ever used to use, until they discontinued it!  I really don't care too much for the ones they have out now. So, I'm so glad they're going throwback! Woohoo! I've heard that these are coming out starting February 1st. I'll be searching for them that same day! I've already seen they marked the prices down on the old ones at Target. So if you like them, get them now.

New Products I've Acquired for 2013

                                             So I've "acquired" a few new things that just came out that I am Loving and a couple of them    are Limited Edition so I thought I would share, just in case you wanted to pick them up yourself before they are gone for good.

Zoya Julie, Piaf, GeiGei, Neely, Jacqueline, and Blu
Zoya sent me their new "Lovely" collection for Spring 2013!!
And that's just what the colors are....lovely!

You can pick them up at for $8.

I already posted NOTD for GeiGei and Julie which are my favorites so far!
Now because of these colors I am already into the Spring mood and I want to go out and buy
all the pastel clothing and accessories to match ugh!

I've picked up the new Maybelline 24hr Metal color tattoo in Barely branded, because I was so sorry 
that I missed out on the LE Barely Beige. I'm so glad I picked this one up, I love it! I've been using it everyday underneath my eyeshadow.

I'm also so glad I finally found this Rimmel Match Perfection concealer
because I'm in need of a new one (my Maybelline age rewind was all out),
and Marnie MsGoldGirl loves it. Thanks Marnie! I love this one too! :)

Maybelline Barely Branded on top and Rimmel concealer on bottom.

Do I really need more lip balms?? What is up with me lately with all these lip balms and butters?
They were cheapies anyways so what the hell! I told myself I needed them because they're LE.
So I picked up the new LE Maybelline Baby Lips in Yummy Plummy and Melon Mania and 
I'm so glad I did, because I like these so much better than the original that had SPF and
I cannot stand SPF on my lips! They smell and taste So nasty! I'm sure it would be better 
for my lips to be protected by the sun but sorry I can't do it!

Baby lips: Yummy plummy, Melon mania, Revlon Sugar plum, NYC Apple Blossom.

I found the new NYC Applelicious Glossy balms at Kmart so I picked this one up in Apple Blossom.
I'm sure I'll eventually go back for more colors because these are so cute, they smell delicious too!
They also came out with these jumbo plumping glosses that I'm going back for too!

NYC Applelicious Apple Blossom

I've been trying to hold myself back from buying this Revlon lip butter for so long!
I just couldn't help myself any longer! I've been lusting over Sugar Plum for quite sometime and as
everyone knows by now I'm obsessed with these lip butters. I've tried almost every color they have =O
This color is so gorgeous! I'm loving all purple lippies right now, can't you tell?

NOTD Spoiled by Wet n wild: Shrimp On The Barbie

This is the first Spoiled polish I've picked up and I'm REALLY impressed!!
Beautiful colors, great formula, lasts long without chipping, and I love the brush!
I actually like these more than all the other Wet n wild polishes. These are only available at CVS (As far as I know) and they only cost $1.99, so run out and grab you some they're a steal!

My Christmas 2012!

                                          I think I really scored this year,  I was spoiled by my Daddy and my
                                           hubby too of course! Here are pics of mostly all the big things that I got.

                                                   My husband got me the Lady Gaga perfume gift set, because I had
           smelled it in Sephora and fell in love with the scent. It smells like Blackberries and Vanilla to me. It came with the black cosmetic  train case. He also gifted me the Stila In the Light palette, because I used up basically all of my sample that I had and he knew I wanted the full size palette.
                                                    My Daddy got me my Toms for Christmas, which was nice because it
                                                  gives another pair of Toms to a child in need. :) I really like the black cords texture and the wool on the inside. It reminds me of Christmas at Grandpa's house, because he always wore slippers with the same print inside.  My Dad also got me the Too Faced natural eye palette and Tarte Blushing Bride Amazonian clay blush. I had been lusting after this blush ever since I saw it in Twishycarestar's video.

                                                           My Godmother gave me the blue scarf for Christmas, it's so nice and soft and I'm really glad she got me this scarf because I've been wanting one for myself after I got my husband a nice black one for Christmas. And it matches the blue on the bottom of my Toms! :)

                                                           My Mother-In-Law got me the Mariah Carey gift set which I ended up taking back because it smelled horrific. Too bad, because I loved all the other Mariah Carey perfumes that I've smelled before ( the yellow, red, and blue ones).

Swatches of the palettes and blush will be coming soon, so stay tuned for that. ;) 
I LOVE them all!
The Too Faced palette came with a sample of the shadow insurance, so I will be trying that out.
And the Stila palette came with an eyeliner which I LOVE!! (and eyeliner usually doesn't like me)


                  What was your favorite 
                  Christmas gift this year?

NOTD: Zoya GeiGei

Photo: Zoya Gie Gie

This color is so fun and girly! It takes me back to when I was little, at the ice-cream parlor with my Daddy, eating my bubblegum ice-cream with my little pink Barbie purse in tow. I'm just now starting to realize that cooler tones look better on me. I have another Color Club from last Spring a baby pink that I just can't wear, it makes me look so sickly. Also a beautiful color I picked up looks soooo pretty in the bottle but looks horrible on me, Loreal Versailles Romance a pale peachy pink.
