Review: Wet n' Wild MegaLast Lip Color {Review, Pictures, Swatches!}

Wet n' Wild Mega Last Lip Color in "Black Cherry"

Wet n' Wild Mega Last Lip Color in "Cherry Bomb"
Net Weight: 0.11 OZ
Company: Wet n' Wild 
Where to buy: CVS, Walgreens
Price: $1-3

Formula: There are pros and cons. The formula is quite drying, and needs to be applied with tons of chap stick to make it look acceptable. BUT, the pigmentation is amazing and can be completely opaque within one coat. It doesn't apply to evenly either. I only bought this for 99 cents, so I wasn't expecting much with this purchase. 
Packaging: The packaging isn't exactly luxurious, but it's acceptable. It's sturdy enough so that it won't break, and you can clearly see the color so you know what you are buying. You definitely aren't paying for the packaging for this specific product. 
Longevity: Longevity is pretty awesome! Because the color is so dark, it works as a lip stain and has quite the lasting power. I wore this through a few meals before needing to reapply. Impressed with the length of wear. 

Overall, for the price, I think this lipstick is worth purchasing. I do not wear dramatic lips normally, so I do not feel the need to invest in a $30 red lipstick. This is sufficient enough and has quite a few pros to it! I would recommend this to a friend.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed. If you liked this post please follow :) I featured this lipstick in a past tutorial! Click here to visit it. 


Eye Tutorial: Frosted Cupcakes {Pictures, Directions, Product List!}

Hey everyone! With the transition into Winter, I thought it would be perfect to do a frosty winter eyeshadow tutorial! The frosted eye and harsh eyeliner gives a wonderful balance between innocence and edginess. In order to warm up the face, I used a coral blush. I really love how this look turned out and hope you enjoy it as well!

Products Used:
Benefit's "Her Name Was Glowla" Palette
Benefit's "Coralista" Blush
Maybelline "Falsies" Mascara 
Bobbi Brown "Black Ink" Gel Liner
Urban Decay Primer Potion

Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow primer and blend well.
Step 2: Apply any pink shimmery eyeshadow to your eye lid. I used my Benefit palette which is not available in stores anymore. Any pearly pink would be perfect. 
Step 3: To create an enlarged bright eye effect on your eye, take a pure white shimmery eyeshadow and pack it onto the center of your lid. 
Step 4: Time for eyeliner! I did a thick consistent line from the inner corner of my eye extending all the way past my eye as well. I did a flared out wing in order to make my eyes look more dramatic and enlarged. 
Step 5: I then applied mascara onto my upper and lower lashes. I did emphasize my lower lashes quite a bit as well in order to open my eyes up. 
Step 6: To warm up my complexion and give some shape, I swept some of Benefit's "Coralista" Blush on the apples of my cheeks up to my temples. 


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I really like the way it turned out and I hope you try it soon! Thank you so much for reading and please follow. Love you guys <3


Young Celeb Spotlight: Chloe Grace Moretz

She is absolutely stunning! Chloe Grace Moretz, a growing star who has featured in multiple well-known films such as Kick Ass and her upcoming role of Hugo, has scored a huge feature in this month's Teen Vogue. She has become one of my style icons from young Hollywood. Rocking Chanel and Alexander McQueen, for her red carpet style has been one of my favorites focuses. Her feature  reminded me of her fresh and spunky spirit! I really loved her beautiful makeup and clean outfits in the photo shoot. I think I may recreate one of her looks from the spread. She is definitely one of my favorite actresses! I just wanted to share with you my respect for Chloe herself!


Nail Combo: Chanel's "Blue Satin" and Deborah Lippmann's "Today Was A Fairytale"

After painting my nails with Chanel's "Blue Satin," ($25) I was unsatisfied with the finish of the polish. Coming off as a reflective blue, it dried as a matte almost black navy. In order to spice things up, I added Deborah Lippmann's "Today Was A Fairytale" ($18) nail polish, my favorite from her glitter polish collection. It instantly perked up my nails, and has become one of my favorite nail combos. Definitely recommend this to anyone, but maybe don't splurge on the navy polish. Thanks for reading!


Top 5 Most Used Brushes

Hey everyone! In this post I am featuring my TOP 5 most used brushes! I don't wear much makeup on a daily basis, so these are used mostly when I go to parties and such. I hope you enjoy!

Urban Decay "Good Karma Shadow Brush"
This brush conveniently came with one of my palettes, so I use it quite often. This flat shader brush is great for packing on color onto my eye lids. I don't think the quality is as great as a MAC 239, but it does the job. The fibers are synthetic so it can be used with cream products too.

MAC 217 Brush
Favorite brush ever! This is literally the best multi use brush I have ever used. I love blending with this and applying sheer washes of color all over as well. This isn't for precision, but is great for smoothing out uneven eyeshadow. The quality of MAC's brushes is supreme, I would recommend this to everyone.

Bobbi Brown "Eye Blender Brush"
I really like this brush to blend sharper edges! Because of it's tapered edge it fits really well into my crease! The quality is great and the bristles are really soft.

MAC 209 SE Brush
Anyways, this is my go to eyeliner brush! I use this with my Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner, and I absolutely love it. It has wider over time, so the application isn't as precise. Nonetheless, this is still one of my favorite eye liner brushes and I like it better than any angled brush.

ELF Blush Brush
This brush is amazing! The quality and price impress me. I use this mostly for contouring, but I do like the application of blush with this is used on it's side. I use this brush so often because if I am in a hurry in the morning, I am able to double up by applying bronzer and blush with this same brush. The bristles are really soft too!

Skincare Series: Top 3 ACNE FIGHTING Face Washes

Hey everyone! This is the second part of my mini skin care series! The first part listed my three favorite gentle cleansing face washes! In this post, I am going to be recommending great acne fighting face washes. This post is for people who have slightly oily and sensitive skin that needs a kick! Keep reading for recommendations and reviews!

Product: St. Ives Naturally Clear Blemish & Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub
Price: ($2-4)
Link: Walgreen's

This face scrub is invigorating and acne battling! It can be harsh on your skin, so limiting your use to only when your skin is breaking out is recommended. It work's wonders! My face feels so soft after using this. The apricot scent is lovely. This can be found at any local drugstore for an extremely reasonable price.

Product: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
Price: ($7-9)
Link: Walgreen's

This is one of the most noted facial cleansers out there! Neutrogena has designed a oil-free acne wash that is great for everyday use. In my opinion, I think it is great for controlling oil but doesn't fight horrible breakouts. I love the refreshing citrus aroma of grapefruit so this is great for morning use. This too can be found at any local drug store.

Product: bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Cleansing Foam
Price: ($28)
Link: Bloomingdale's

This face wash is absolutely unique and amazing. Even though this isn't technically towards acne, it clears my skin and cleans my pores so well! It has this invigorating effect on my skin. You can literally feel the exfoliation occurring on your skin. Love this!! It is a little of a splurge, but definitely worth it!

Product of Interest: Pacifica Lip Tints

Being a huge fan of Pacifica scents, I was very happy when I saw that they came out with a new line of lip care! I am obsessed with their body butters, so I have high hopes in terms of the moisture of these lip tints. These remind me of the Burts Bees lip tints. I have only seen them at Sephora but didn't get a chance to test them because the testers were quite filthy. They are priced at $9 individually, but there is a set on the Pacifica Perfume Website that sells for $18. Guavaberry, Coconut Nectar, and Blood Orange are in the set. There are a few other sold individually as well. If anyone has this, please tell me because I would love to pick it up once I run out of my other lip products. Thanks guys! <3


HOLIDAYS 2011: Beauty Gift Sets! {Bloomingdales, Nordstroms, etc.}

Hey readers! This is the second post to my holiday gift sets posts! If you want to check that out, click HERE! All of the exciting gift sets for this holiday season have been coming out, and I thought it would be great to list some of my favorites! Keep reading for pictures and mini reviews!

#1 Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Deluxe Set
If you didn't know, this is my FAVORITE perfume ever! I do not own a full size because of the steep price, but with this full size perfume with some extra throw ins, hopefully I can put the cash down and buy this for the holidays! It's still a whopping $92, but perfumes last for years for me! Love the idea!

#2 Chanel's Holiday Collection! 
There are multiple items, beware!

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque

Ahh! This is like a luxurious version of OCC Lip Tars, but more wearable! I am OBSESSED with the stunning shades Chanel has come out with!! Each one is beautiful and surprisingly looks great with my skin tone which is rare. This came out with their winter collection this year, and I am dying to buy at least one. They are priced at $32, which is very expensive, so I am holding off on this purchase. 

#3 Chanel Fragrance Wardrobe Set
This is beautiful! I think the title serves its purpose. This is the perfect wardrobe decoration. Each classic Chanel perfume is amazing! I would definitely invest into this. It's $120, but considering that it is Chanel, the price is tolerable.  

#4 Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss
 This is an extremely pigmented lip gloss. If you are looking for more product, skip the Rouge Allure Laque. The colors here are more conventional and traditional, but this lipgloss is still beautiful! I am still obsessed with the packaging as well. It costs $32.

#5 MAC Glitter and Ice Winter Collection!
MAC Iced Delights Lip Bag-Sultry 
This is my favorite combination out of all the MAC Winter sets! I am not actually a fan of the collection, but I thought it would be appropriate to use at least one of their products. The colors are beautiful. The price is $38, which is basically no savings, defeating the purpose of "holiday savings."I would not buy this myself but would happily and gratefully accept this ;). 

#6 L'Occitane Hand Creme Bouquet 
I think this is the best set ever! I constantly need hand cream, especially with the dry weather. The new variations of their famous Shea hand creme seems so luxurious and beautiful! I can't wait to try a few of these. It is priced at $50, which is pretty reasonable. The convenience of the set is wonderful! 

Thank you so much for reading this post! If you enjoyed it, please follow! I love feedback as well, so leave a comment for me below! Love you guys!


An Unhealthy Obsession: Deborah Lippmann Glitter Nail Polishes

Congratulations to Deborah for being the "queen of glitter polishes"! I have officially become obsessed with her famous and unique glitter nail polishes. The formula, colors, and variety have me starstruck. These are some of my favorites! They range from $16-20.

Do Ya Think I'm Sexy, Don't Tell Mama
Happy Birthday, Bad Romance

Superstar, Today Was A Fairytale 
Across The Universe, Boom Boom Pow

I Love The Nightlife, Lady Sings The Blues

Razzle Dazzle

As you can see, I basically listed every single glitter polish of hers which shows my sick addiction. I think these glitter polishes are gorgeous and would do anything to own them all!!! One day, one day. Anyways tell me which ones you have! If you liked this post, please follow and comment below. Thanks for reading!


HOLIDAYS 2011: Beauty Gift Sets! {Sephora}

Hey guys! Lately, all of the major beauty brands have been coming out with holiday collections and gift sets! I love the cute packaging and great deals. I thought I would do a post listing the holiday sets I am most excited about. Keep reading for products and picture below! :) Within the next couple of days, I will be posting a "department store" holiday gift sets interest! 

#1: Tarte Lip Service Limited-Edition LipSurgence Collection!

I have been dying to buy this! There are five FULL SIZE lip products in this holiday set for only $29! It's a $120 value too, which is amazing. I really love all of the colors because it comes with the essentials. The bright red, warm coral, nude pink, and two fun glittery shades to complete the perfect collection. I really hope I stop by a Sephora and pick this up soon.

#2: Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Set
Since the release of Lancome's new mascara, I have been dying to see what all of the hype is about. Also a fan of their art liner, I thought this would be a great addition to my makeup collection. I've never tried a lash primer either, so that would be fun! The set is only $29.50, so your only paying $1.50 for the liquid liner and primer!

#3: Juicy Couture Spray Pen Set
This is too cute! I only own one other rollerball and have never owned any of the Juicy Couture fragrances, so I thought this would be an amazing steal! It is priced at $35. The packaging is adorable and travel friendly! Every time I go to a fragrance department I always spritz their perfume on myself. I want this!!!

#4 Fresh Mini Sugar Kissing Trio

I don't consider this product necessary, but it does interest me! I haven't tried these flavors of the fresh lip balm, but I love the colors given! It is $28 on the Sephora website. I do wish they gave three full size lip balms and then raise the price slightly up, but what can you do! If I have some extra holiday cash, it will definitely go towards this!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have an amazing weekend and please follow! 


Nail Collections for this WINTER 2011

Essie's latest collection features muted shades that are perfect for this season! 

China Glaze's Let It Snow collection is the best I have seen so far. The wide range of glitter polishes and beautiful metallics will definitely have my going to ULTA to pick some up. 

Orly's Holiday Soiree Collection is BEAUTIFUL. The lovely champagne glitter color and classic reds are amazing. This is the most wearable in my opinion! 

Overall, it seems as if each nail company is taking a different approach for their winter collections. I am so glad with the variety and cannot wait to pick up some new nail polishes for this holiday season. 

Thank you so much for reading! I love you guys so much and please follow. Sorry I have been extremely busy by the way, I literally barely have any time to write. Thanks for being patient. Love you guys <3
