Update +FOTD

Hi all! Well, yes, it has appeared that I have kind of fallen off the face of the earth, hasn't it! I have been going through some kinda crazy personal stuff this year, so obv the blog was one of the first things to take a back seat. :/

But, I am back and excited to share my adoration of makeup with you again!

Viva Glam Gaga II Lipstick

Just wanted to share my love for Viva Glam Gaga II!! The color is a bit interesting, and I've heard a lot of people can't pull it off, but with my NW20 complexion, I think it is pretty fun!!


And a silly "glamour" shot for ya!


Here it is compared to 'Fleshpot' that I had in my purse the day I got this lipstick:

top: VG Gaga II; bottom: Fleshpot

Based on other reviews I've seen on the internet, it seems like this lipstick is one you will definitely need to try on in person; However, I am certain that fairer chicas like me will find it pretty flattering. 

What do you think of VG Gaga II?

FOTD: MAC 'Saffron' Eyeshadow

Thought I'd share a look I did last week with 'Saffron' eyeshadow from MAC's Mickey Contractor.


'Saffron' is a gorgeous burnt orange shade. Unfortunately, it is hard to get a hold of these days, but you can substitute it with 'Rule', 'Red Brick' or 'Off the Page' for a comparative look.



Products used:
-Saffron e/s
-Vanilla e/s
-Brown Script e/s (in crease)
-Dark Diversion f/l

Korres 'Vitamin E' Face Primer


After Temptalia's readers voted this the #1 primer, I kinda couldn't help myself from wanting to try it too! I don't have some long, elaborate review, but I do have to say that I am also very pleased with the results! Keep reading for photos!

MAC 'Peacocky' Mega Metal Eyeshadows!


Yes, I realize that I am way behind with posting these eyeshadows, but in my defense, I didn't pick any up until this past week when I just couldn't hold out any longer!

I love the finish of these shadows, they're so smooth and perfectly pigmented. Keep reading for photos of my fave 5!

Too Faced 'Romantic Eye' Palette Photos + Look


When I saw this palette on Sephora's website, I knew it had to be mine! It took me a while to finally get my hands on it, since my Sephora store didn't have it stocked for quite some time, but I am pretty happy that I did get it, because it is just so pretty! Keep reading for swatches and a look!

MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder Controversy?

Well hello, long time no talk! Things have been a bit hectic for me over the holiday season, and I just started a new, very time consuming job- which is a great challenge for me, but super exciting! And, I hate to say it, but sometimes I just need a bit of a break from the internets!


Never fear though, because I'm back, and with a review of MAC's Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder. This powder is kinda MAC's version of MUFE's HD powder, but certainly with a twist. Is it better or worse? Keep reading to find out!

PS: There is quite a surprise to be had!

An update from this slacking blogger! :)

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season thus far! I had an amazing time in Europe, though I admit I'm still trying to catch up on life since I got back, hence the absence of posts here. I hope to be updating soon with "real" posts, but for now, I have a question:

What did you get with your $15 or $20 Sephora gc?

Me, I picked up some Bare Escentuals foundation and mineral veil! Very exciting, right? ;)
