Archie For Valentine's Day


I'm sharing my recent haul from MAC Cosmetics. I got a few items, one beauty powder from the MAC Archie's Girls Limited Edition Collection, a lipstick from the Year of the Snake Limited Edition Collection, and a beautiful lipstick from their permanent collection.

My original order from the Archie collection included two lipsticks, a blush and a pigment. Unfortunately after I submitted my order their was a problem and I had to call to confirm which cost US$2.00 per min for that call. By the time I decided to reorder the items they were sold out. However after seeing additional swatches on the Internet, I fell in love with the beauty powder and I decided to get that since I never tried their beauty powders before and the packaging appealed to me.

I got a lipstick from the Year of the Snake collection because, dah, their was a beautiful and unique snakeskin designed into the lipstick. Plus, after doing my research on the web I found out that Beyonce and Kim Kardashian both wear this lipstick, so I brought it.

And finally, I got the Girl Around Town lipstick because I was at the MAC store last month and I fell in love with it but I didn't buy it right away and I hadn't had time to go to the mall to get it.

I wore the Girl Around Town lipstick today for Vday, it was perfect for this holiday!

Hopefully, I'll find the time this weekend to do a YT video to share my overall thought on the products.

Style Inspiration: Penelope Cruz

I am currently very much inspired by the beautiful Spanish actress, Penelope Cruz. I love her classy and sophisticated style which somehow manages to be sexy but not trashy, lol.

E.l.f. Cosmetics (Hurricane Sandy) Haul


I'm sharing my first e.l.f. cosmetics haul with y'all...they had a special on their website after their warehouse was affected by the storm that had hit the US, I think it was a 50% off sale on certain products.

I was a little disappointed when I received my package because one of the blushes were broken and dirted the other products in the package, so everything looked like it had already been used, I ended up having to wipe everything. This was not the Skybox or the U.S. Postal Service fault but the slackness of e.l.f. because they did not take the time to wrap everything in bubble wrap, they simply placed it in a small bubble lined envelope which wasn't sufficient. I will be giving them my feedback on this, believe me!

Nevertheless, I am quite impressed with the quality of the products ESPECIALLY the brushes. The white handle brushes were not eligible for the 50% but they did cost only one dollar so I brought like two eyeshadow brushes and I am impressed with the quality of these $1 brushes. I haven't actually used them yet in order to give you a full review but I will, maybe when I film another review video on YouTube.

two eyeshadow brushes, smudge brush, small stipple brush, kabuki face brush,
baked blushes: peachy cheeky (broken), rich rose, passion pink.
