Dollar Tree Finds (Great Bases for $1.00!)

My Dollar Tree in Campbell, CA

**To see a larger picture check link:
(Left to Right) Heavenly Pink #70, Mint Dream #30, Turquoise Breeze #55, Lilac Cloud #50, Bronzer in "Medium" #25

Suede Sensation #20

These are awesome! Super whipped texture, and smooth to apply. They last a long time and hold on to shadow well. Each color has a sparkly duo tone, but not overly glittery. There is sparkle but not big chunks. I can't believe I found these at my Dollar Tree, so I made sure to get every color. These are really great buy for only $1.00. I'll be more likely to try more of these in the future for good eyeshadow base.

Loreal Colour Fresco in "Shivering Vine"

This color green is gorgeous in person. It looks more olive green in the natural light, but comes out more evergreen in pictures. Also a shade stick I highly recommend these for bases. I get asked a lot how I get my eyeshadow to pop, I tell people to use all types of bases. Bases really do help for long lasting wear as well. I find when I go to the club, the better the base the better it stays in the dancing sweat. lol!

Maybelline Unstoppable Shade Sticks
(Left to Right) Continuous Cashmere & Steadfast Suede

Wooo these are my favorite!! when Maybelline says on the packaging "Unstoppable" man, they sure do mean it! I had these swatched on my hand, washed dishes and they were still there. It was amazing. I had to use a makeup wipe to finally remove from my hand. I'm very very impressed by these shadesticks, and hopefully I'll be able to find more.

(TOP TO BOTTOM) Orchid #60, Ginger #20, Poppy #70


My Fexi friend Mellie from twitter hit me up awhile ago saying she posted on her blog a recreation. I loved how this came out on her. It looks great with her skin and red lips! I loved how she matched what she wore, cause I do that as well. We don't follow the rules.. heyyy now! ;D lol She looks so so beautiful! I am just loving these recreations, I appreciate that from all of them it really inspires me.

I'll be posting a blog about "Red Lips Thursdays" coming soon! Please let me know your thoughts on her look below! :D

Date Night Look and Sally Hansen Swatches & Review (Dollar Tree!)

I did this look to go out on a date with my honey to see Ninja Assassin. Movie was ehh. I love martial arts movies, but this didn't impress me. We still had a nice time and had some goood nachos lol.

I recently went to the Dollar Store with my honey who pointed out these beautiful Sally Hansen lip glosses. They are quite larger than most lip glosses and for a dollar...pshh don't have to ask me twice lol. I wasn't sure what to expect but I have heard in the past that Sally Hansen lip glosses were very pigmented. I can honestly say that these lip glosses are amazing. The pigmentation are way better than any MAC lip glass I've purchased. The red is so gorgeous in person. Each totally multidimensional in color. The pink (Orchid) has a gold shimmer to it but not like glitter clumps like MAC dazzle glass. The nude rose color (Ginger) is my favorite after the red. It's sooo beautiful in person. I need to go back for a second purchase, because I can't get over how great these are. I will be probably trying more lip glosses from Sally Hansen. I know you guys will love these and more important they are affordable! I mean for $1.00 they really really shine.

My girl @thattallchick25 from twitter was able to find these at her local Dollar Tree, so be sure to stop by and see if you can get these for only $1.00!!

What I Used:
Heavenly Naturals eye primer
Heavenly Naturals in "Vanilla Crush" (brow highlight)
Heavenly Naturals in "Pure Bliss" (lid)
Heavenly Naturals in "Desire" (middle of lid)
Heavenly Naturals in "Soulful" (tear ducts)
Heavenly Naturals in "Swagger" (outer crease & lower lashline)
Heavenly Naturals in "Kitten" (to darken crease)

Prestige Blushing Duo in "Raffia"

Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine in "Poppy #70"

(TOP TO BOTTOM) Orchid #60, Ginger #20, Poppy #70

A Palette To Suit Every Taste

I have a love/hate relationship with makeup palettes. I seem to always be in search of the perfect one that will include all the essentials I need in the most flattering colors and I rarely find it!

It's all about personal preference and colors that are flattering for your individual coloring and lifestyle.

With that in mind, I searched the most popular and trendy lines for sets that might work for everyday or special occasions. You might want to get them soon though as most are special editions that won't be around for long.

POP Beauty's Cabaret is one of the most comprehensive and cutting edge of the palettes out right now. It includes 5 smokey eyeshadows, matte face powder, a swirl of 5 highlighters, 2 bronzers and 4 lip duos. I'm not counting but that is a lot of products at your fingertips for a very reasonable price of 29.50! It must be popular as it is out of stock at the POP Beauty website but it does seem to still be available at

If you're looking for something a little more basic, Bobbi Brown's "Eyes and Cheeks to Go" might fit the bill. There are both Warm and Cool Eye Quads in shimmer and matte shades surrounding rouge in a universal tone of Blushed Rose. The set, including a mini-eyeshadow brush is $60.00 and is available at Nordstrom.

Holiday time creates the need for more shimmer and color which is
exactly what you'll find in a budget priced palette from Target. NP Set is a line by Napoleon Perdis sold at the store and is apparently flying off shelves. The set is $32.00 and includes 18 eyeshadows, 4 blushes, 4 lip glosses and 3 brush applicators--in other words if you have a party every night you can have a different look all the way through New Year's eve! Available at your local resource for specials on beauty services as well as the latest information on beauty, health and fitness with a local twist.

Beauty From The Earth (Mint & Deep Blue Greens)

Beauty from the Earth Cosmetics owner Crystal gave me the chance to try a few of her pigments about a month ago. I took tons of swatches and reviews when my computer decided to die on me. I was so upset, since I had looks to upload and so much work done. So now I'm redoing some looks I had done before they got lost. Tonight I will be uploading the swatches and product info.

I did this look to do some shopping with the family for Thanksgiving. I love the Mint color, it's been a color I've been looking to get. I needed a really good pigmented Mint and this is the perfect mint shade. Illusion is also one of my favorites, being a beautiful blue green.

I hope you like this look, please comment!

Heavenly Naturals eye primer

Spa-ing Instead of Shopping After Thanksgiving

Shopping till you drop is not the only option your post-Thanksgiving days off. Why not do something really nice for yourself and your friends and family before total holiday frenzy gets underway.....

Two events this Friday and Saturday help you get a nice after-turkey glow or ward off that post-turkey bloat!

On Friday the 26th head to Atlantis Medical Wellness Center in Silver Spring where they're offering huge Black Friday discounts on services from 10am to 2pm. Specials include 50% on that day only on all asethetic services including SmartLipo and 10% off the hCG Weight Loss Protocol.

If you can't make it in call them at 240-292-7122 to pay for the services in full that day for use at another time or to give for the holidays! It's a great way to take advantage of many services at a huge discount. Get a specialized facial so you'll glow at holiday parties or make a beauty junkie on your gift list really happy.

If you over-indulge on Thursday or should I say when....then Body Elements in Vienna is going to help you shed the guilt and possibly some inches with their Stress Free Saturday on the 28th. Bring along family and friends so you can all de-stress, detoxify, increase your metabolism and even burn more calories. Maybe you really can have the whipped cream on the pumpkin pie!!

There are $50 Endermolgie sessions all day from 8am to 5pm--a super savings of $55 per session. Not only will your clothes feel looser but you'll feel refreshed and relaxed, unlike those mall shoppers fighting for a parking spot! You can also take advantage of special offers, refreshments and goodie bags and they promise no turkey in sight!

Spa-ing instead of shopping seems like the start of a great new Black Friday tradition.

There are lots of other special offers that last through Monday on beauty services and products in the Hot Deals section so take a look and make it a beautiful Friday and long holiday weekend. your local resource for specials on beauty services as well as the latest information on beauty, health and fitness with a local twist.

NikkiTutorials Queenbmakeup Inspired Look!

Check out my girl NikkiTutorials new YouTube tutorial video!! She is only 15 and so Talented! I love her looks and am inspired everytime I'm in a make up rut. She is extremely beautiful, and has blending abilities that are soo fantastic. I love that she combines colors together so well and comes up with such unique color combos. I'm truely inspired by her artistic nature and many upcoming and existing youtube gurus. I think it's important to support eachother as women and especially as artists in the same love of make up! Please take the time to check her videos and also get to know her as a funny, strong, intelligent woman on twitter!

Picture for reference, from earlier in the year.
I used Coutour on my lower lashline.
