Lilac Petal      Peach Petal

STORE: Drugstores, Ulta
3/5 Stars

I missed out on even swatching Lavender Whip lipstick, so when I saw Lilac Petal, I had to get it.  The Lilac Petal is actually wearable.  I think because it's really milky and shears the lilac out.  I like it in Peach Petal more.  I think it's a color you could wear on its own or mute out a dark crazy lip color.
It reminds me of Mac C-Thru.

I have had this Revlon gloss in other colors before, and like them, but don't love them.  I think the color wears out fast.  I do like the the smell, texture, and the how it moisturizes my lips, but I want the color too.  My lips feel soft, but the gloss doesn't last long.  

I was looking for the Coral one, but can't find it.  I don't know if I'll search it out.

What are your favorite lip gloss?

STORE: Drugstores, Ulta, Walmart
Color ; Fairest Nude
4/5 Stars

Bargain Alert : This week at Walgreen's, all Loreal lips products are $3 off, Plus they have their own coupon book right when you walk in with another $2 off.  This past Sunday the paper had a $1 off coupon, so that's $6 off any Loreal product.  

This is the first Loreal Lip product I bought in a long time, but they are really great.  Smooth, creamy, long lasting, and opaque.  Love it.  Also, they are set up in shade of nudes, pinks, reds, and berries from lightest to darkest.  It's easy to find the color you want.

I've seen a lot of tweets, blogs and YT Gurus talk about this one in Fairest Nude.  It's really a wearable nude.  It has a peachy/pink color, so it doesn't look washed out or like chalk on the lips.  The one downfall is the smell of these lipsticks.  I want to try others, but hate the smell.  I may have to try it a little longer to see if I could live with it.  I really want to try another one though.

Have you tried the Loreal Colour Rich lipsticks?  Does the smell bother you?  What's a great color to try?

These Skecher Tone- ups had me interested, but the price didn't.  I was at Ross yesterday, it's like TJ Maxx or Marshall's but cheaper, and found these for $20.  I could use every bit of help in the leg department, so I'm giving them a shot.

Today is the first day I'm wearing them, and they feel a lot lighter than the shoe version I tried on.  I'll have to give you some updates on what I think of them or if they work.  If they really don't work, I still thought they would be pretty cute for the summer.

What have you heard about the Tone-Ups or Shape-Ups?  Do they work?

MAC CORAL CREPE PAINTPOT - Pret a Papier Collection

STORE : Mac Cosmetics 

This is my only purchace from the lat 2 collections from Mac.  I saw Michele 1218 rave about tis product on YT, and she was right.  I love paintpots.  They are easy, a good base, come in tons of colors, long lasting, and you can use only a paintpot for a lid color.

This paintpot is from the Pret a Papier collection os Coral Crepe.  It is a coral wit a hint of gold shimmer.  It liiks great alone or paired up with browns or golds.  I think it's a good buy because I haven't really seen a coral as a base before.  I think it's LE, so if you're interested go take a look now.

What's your favorite e/s base to use?

I have been staying out of Mac & Sephora because I'm not really wanting anything right now, but I always end up with something I didn't really want/need.  Since i can't completely stop myself I have been picking up some YT/Blogger favorites to try and review.  I also have a couple of things from Sally Girl.

I haven't died my hair in a while, and needed to bad.  I bought this perfect 10 because it's fast and I want that applicator bottle.  I just colored my hair, so i will post a pic of the results.

Let me know if you want to see anything reviewed first?  Some are hits and others you can pass on.

What's your NEW drugstore find?

I was up in L.A., and that means anytime I can swing it, I have to stop at Kitson on Robertson.  If you're a TMZ or Perez follower, you may have seen the photogs shooting video and pics of celebrity shoppers there.  They are always standing in front waiting.

Kitson is an amazing store.  It has all the new and hottest trends and designers.  Here's the link to the Kitson online website so you could take a look.   There are all price ranges too.   This time I was there for a special gift House of Harlow jewelry.  Nicole Richie was at my Bloomingdale's promoting her line, but were sold out by the time I got there.  

Let me say her jewelry is not only gorgeous, but it is real quality.  It's that heavy metal, where you feel like you're getting what you pay for.  All the pieces go together from all her collections.  This is what I ended up with:

House of Harlow 1960 - Women's  Black Sunburst Star Necklace

The little starburst sits in the back of your neck, so if you wear your hair up you have a jewel on your neck

House of Harlow 1960 - Tiger Eye Ring

House of Harlow - 1960 Pyramid Bangles in black & white

I would say her jewelry is mid-range starting in the $40- $100's.  I really am in love.  Her jewelry is beautiful wearing it together or even just 1 piece at a time.  What I also love, is that even though her collections change, they still fit together.  Look here to see more of her jewelry collection.

Have you seen or been to Kitson?  What do you think of Nicole Richi's line?

Wet n Wild Icon Eyeshadow Palettes
Store: Rite-Aid, Walgreens
Cost: $4.99

Why did I wait so long to get these?  They are the most pigmented, beautiful colors.  I took only these 3 with me on a trip, because you know I like the challenge, or game.  They were amazing, and I would like to add that there are so many Mac dupes here.  You really only need just 1 of these to take with you on a trip and get a lot of looks out of it.  

L - R   Vanity, Greed, Lust

This is just 1 swipe
The only thing that could be a little better is the staying power on the lighter shades.  i just pack them on a little more.

Wet n Wild Matte Lipsticks
Cost: $3-4

These are great too.  They are thick, smooth, and very opaque.  They don't make your lips look cracked or dry, but may be a bit drying, like all matte lipsticks.  I just wish they had more of a color range.

L - R #902, #903 (sorry they have no name)

I love the 902, and use it almost every day.  It is a matte version of my Mac Blankety(love).  The 903 is a bright Baby Doll pink.

Overall the products are amazing for the price.  Wet n Wild has really upped their products and colors.
I'm going to try the singles, trios, and blush next.  What have you liked and tried from Wet n Wild?

Store: Any drugstore or Walmart
Cost: $3.99
Color:Big Apple

This has been the biggest surprise for me because I am not a cream blush kind of girl.  I bought it after seeing hauls/reviews, and I am in love for 3 main reasons:
  1. Affordable
  2. Long Wearing
  3. Easy to apply, no tools needed
I put it on with my finger and just pat it where I want it.  It goes on like a cream, but dries to a powder.  I took this with me to Vegas, and it lasted 6 hours, if not longer.

The tube and color look different
This is a buildable cream blush that just gives you that glowy look.  I don't put anything on top, just this. It became a favorite as soon as I put it on.

What is your favorite N.Y.C. product?

Happy Mother's Day to all the hard working Mom's!  I got a really great gift this year, a new iPad.

I was so surprised because all I asked for was a Gift Card.  It's so small and sleek.

This is the side view.  To me, it looks like a big iPhone and works like one too.  I'll have to give you an update on whether or not this is the solution to a new computer at a lower price.  

But the best part of my gift was that my kids and husband took care of me all day long.  I didn't have to do a thing.  

How did you spend your mother's day?

$15 @Sephora

This is 1 of my Sephora buys with the 15% off they just had.  I kept passing this by in the store, I just thought the line would be too pastel, I don't know why I thought this.  HELLO, I was wrong.  


Everything is so pretty  Beautiful!  The eye shadows come in matte and shimmer, singles or quads.  The colors are so pigmented and super creamy. Love, love it.  I was talking to the MUA at Sephora and her makeup looked so vibrant.  She said it was all tokidoki.  She thought it would be kiddish, but once she swatched it, she fell in love too.  She said all the products have major staying power.  Plus the packaging....very cute.

I got this in Bulletto and its this brown, grey, reddish, black, more enhanced version of Satin Taupe.  I really want to get more.  

Have you tried tokidoki?  What are their best products?  What new product has surprised you?
