FOTD Orange and Purple Cat Eyes

 Ahh finally played with some color today. It's so nice to pull myself out of my I'm rushing to work neutral rut. I'm really liking the contrast of the orange juxtaposed with the purple. I will never loose the love of complementary colors.

Hair Nets, Not just For Lunch Ladys.

When you hear the words hair net what is the first thing you think of? For me it's the stereotypical lunch lady. Not exactly what one would associate with beauty or stylish. But after playing around I think I have found a new appreciation for the hair net

E.L.F. High Definition Powder Review

I find that e.l.f. products are always hit or miss. Sometimes they are a good product for a great price and other times they fall in to the you get what you pay for. This High Definition Powder is a little off  mark for me.

FOTD Pomegranate Everyday

I never thought that I would like a burgundy eyeshadow but ever since I used the Maybelline color tattoo in Pomegranate Punk it has become my new favorite go to look.  Another plus about the color is it helps blue eyes pop. Not to mention it goes well with my hair.

Winter Quick Tip: Hat Safe Brows

One thing I love about winter is being able to wear ski hats. The down side is it usually covers my brows to which i usually fill in, and don't want to be smudged or wiped off by the hat. I also don't like taking the hat off with my brow hairs going in every direction. So here is my tip for smug and budge proof brows.

L'Oreal paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow Review

L'Oreal's claims
  • Intense maximized color
  • Luxurious powder-cream texture
  • 24-hour long-lasting hold
  • Waterproof, crease resistant, fade resistant
description from

These come in 12 shades. Most are shimmery neutrals there are a few more colorful colors like blue, green and purple.

I have heard that theses are a good drugstore dupe for the Armani Eyes To kill eyeshadows, but that is probably due to the fact that they are both under the same parent company and use similar formulas. So if you were looking to try the Armani shadows but not at the $32 price this might be a better way to go.  As for what I think of the L'Oral Infallible 24 HR shadows.....

Love it or leave it? Personally I'd leave it.  As far as the claims go it doesn't hold up. It does have a nice powder-cream texture, but as fare as intense maximized color goes it swatches on the fingers nicely yet when applied from there to the skin the pigmentation doesn't show up as intense. I did also find the shadow hard to work with. It was hard to pickup onto a brush and then apply to the eye. The best way to apply it was with the fingers, even then it wasn't ideal. As far as 24 hour long lasting hold goes it couldn't even hold up for 8 hours without creasing and that was with an eyeshadow primer. 

Would I purchase other shades? No, I think that it's not worth the nearly $10 for one color that is hard to work with and does not hold up.

So far I'm loving these shadows. They are a cream shadow that set and will not budge. I do recommend working quickly with them to blend them out, the shadows will set quickly. The shadows last all day with out creasing for me which says a lot because I very oily lids and even after 14 hours no creasing. I can't imagine a need to wear shadow for 24 hours These shadows work great by themselves as all over color or as a base for other shadows.  I can't wait to try out some more colors and I think these would be a great addition to any makeup collection.

Too Faced In Your Dreams Pallet Review

Silk Stalkings, La Cage, Rapture, Wanna Play?, Give It up
Pink Peacock, Swing, Fishnet, Girly Show, Pink Ice
Full Moon, Dream On, Seduce, You Hold The Key, Heat On
I think it's perfect for the makeup novice  giving three complete looks. The packaging is supper cute. I also like that it is nice and flat which is good for easy storage. There are instructions on the inside cover of the pallet on how to put together three different looks.
The shadows are nicely pigmented with a velvety texture. All of the eyeshadows have either a metallic or a shimmer. I would of liked to see one or two matte shadows in the mix. I also found the colors in the first two rows to be fairly similar. All three bushes are very wearable for everyday. The lip colors are sheer and glossy with a smooth non-sticky texture. Over all I really like this pallet. I think it's a great pallet of makeup beginners and everyday looks.
