Sinful Colors : Rich in Heart

Hi Everyone !
I think the first time I saw the Sinful Colors nail polish brand was over the summer in my local Walgreens, and after purchasing one color and using it, I went back to Walgreens the next day and nearly lost my mind trying to decide which colors to buy. & that was prettymuch what I spent my money on during the summer.
After moving back in on campus, I haven't gone to a Walgreens just because I don't have a car and I'm too lazy to walk to the nearest one, but last week while shopping in Target I noticed the brand and nearly had a heart attack.
If you're unfamiliar with Sinful Colors nail polish, they come in a variety of more than 100 COLORS with really great payoff. Alot of the colors don't need more than one coat. So back to Target... naturally I was tempted to get every color but I stopped myself, and reached for a dark burgundy color with small red flecks, that I'm in love with at the moment.
Rich in Heart:
Like I mentioned before, Sinful Colors has great color payoff [This is only one coat] and the brush makes application really easy which is great!

There's a guest appearance by Shad[ i'l post his link at the end of the post]

First off, I know I suck for not posting anything but it's finals and my birthday just passed so I've been really busy with schoolwork. I'll be done this week and then I'm going back home for Christmas break, and I've already done some makeup looks I think you guys will like. I also got an email from one of you guys asking if I could do OOTD, I'm gonna also try to do that. SO be on the lookout for new things around DECEMBER 21-ISH.

Just filling everyone in, hope you all are doing well & goodluck to anyone else getting ready for finals. they're a bitch.

Warm Reds

It's finally December which means, finals are right around the corner and teachers are piling everything up which sucks. But after finals is the month long Holiday Break and I canNOT wait to go home and see my bestfriends, it's been too long.
Unfortunately I've prettymuch been on my deathbed these past couple days with one of the most disgusting coughs ever and I've been just doing homework in my living room surrounded by tissue boxes and walmart bags to try to keep from getting anyone else as sick as I am. But while procrastinating on a paper, I had time to put this look together. ENJOY=D

NYX Jumbo Pencil - Milk
NYX Pure Skin - all over lid

EYECANDY : Michael Vartan

Hi everyone, this week is going to be absolute hell and I'm ready for the weekend already. Finals are coming up really fast, I have no idea where I've been for the past semester.. I feel like the more time I spend in college the quicker the years go by. It's kind of bittersweet. Not only that, but I woke up this morning with a seriosu case of the 'Mondays" and I've been in a pretty shitty mood all day, so I figured I'd perk myself up with some men.

Michael Vartan ladies [and gentlemen], do you remember him in Never Been Kissed with Drew Barrymore!? I die. Although his role in the motion picture is well-known by almost any girl of the 90s, he's probably best known for his role as Michael Vaughn in Alias with Jennifer Garner. Another great product of the 90s.
Again, I DIE. There's just something so enticing about him. There's an air of mystery that surrounds him and I've been hooked ever since that last scene in Never Been Kissed on the pitcher's mound. AMAZING. ugh..
Vartan is currently on TNT's medical drama Hawthorne, and I'm pretty sure the last movie I saw him in was Monster-in-Law with Jennifer Lopez.. which is a really cute movie btw.

Icy Blues

Hi everyone ! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. & hopefully you didn't pull your hair out shopping on blackfriday and found some really great deals. I spent the holiday in Cincinnati with a friend &his family and went shopping Black Friday for 1 thing... a camera, and found a really great deal on a great camera. So you can expect plenty more makeup posts, which im excited about.
Here's the first one. I got bored today and decided to play around with the blues in my collection. I remember in 7th and 8th grade it seemed like every girl I knew was wearing this icy blue eyeshadow that looked ridiculous, so here's a more sophisticated, better looking version. It's a great look for winter nights. ENJOY=D

The eyeshadows used are from my bhcosmetics 120 palette[2nd edition]
I'll explain the colors used as best as possible and also there will be pictures posted at the end with labels
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Frosty green eyeshadow [bottom half of palette] applied to the crease and outer 'V' area of eyelid
Shimmery baby blue eyeshadow [bottom half of palette] lightly dusted above the green color and blend.
Navy Blue eyeshadow [bottom half of palette] aplied to the outer 'V' to add depth and dimension to the eyes. BLEND WELL.
Matte Sky Blue eyeshadow [ top half of palette] applied to the lid & blend
NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Black on lid
L'oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara on top lashes
L'oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer Kit in Medium[15]

EYESHADOWS : all the colors used have a white ring around them.
I decided I'm gonna start doing requests, so leave colors or types of looks you're interested in seeing in comments. Thank You all for reading and following !

Ke$ha : We R Who We R by Ryan James Yezak

This music video done by YouTube Star Ryan James Yezak and friends is just another piece of spectacular videography and choreography.
This isn't the official video for Ke$ha's We R Who We R, but I mean.. can she seriously beat this? It's amazing. Credit for the choreography goes to Christian Beasley for his genius thinking and incorporating so many techniques for such a simple dance song. Really. I would've just gotten a group of friends together and just dance like idiots if it were left up to me. This is genius. I have nothing else to say except, SUBSCRIBE to his channel on youtube.
I'll leave a link in at the end of the post

***If you're a homophobe, leave your thoughts and opinions at the door, because this video is fantastic and if you're gonna let your biases affect that you shouldn't even watch. ****

Boris Kodjoe. Honestly, need I say more?
Homeboy better hope I never meet him in a secluded spot
I for one, think it should be illegal every time he's in public, and his shirt ISN'T off. He should be fined. Who's with me?
Boris Kodjoe; Australian native and former fashion model turned actor,has been lighting up movie and television screen ever since I can remember. Some of the movies he's had roles in include Brown Sugar, Love and Basketball, Madea's Family Reunion, All About Us and his latest, Undercovers. So let's hear it for a successful, gorgeous man who's made his way from Down Under to the Hollywood Hills and managed to make women everywhere swoon.

Don't be fooled ladies, this palette is not worth the $26 Victoria's Secret is selling it for.
The Midnight Glamour deluxe eye palette caught my eye the second I walked to the beauty section of the store, and why wouldn't it the colors are gorgeous. I wanted to do a navy smokey eye over the weekend, and I had to have this palette to accomplish such a task. After swatching all 4 eyeshadows, I was sold. [The black is a gel eyeliner.] Once I got it home I tested it out immediately with the dual ended eyeshadow/eyeliner brush and my initial opinions changed. The shadows, once applied to my eyelids after a primer were really dull. The last eyeshadow pictured, [which looks like a sparkly blue in the picture] is really a dark black with amazing blue reflux in person & was primarily the reasion I fell in love at the mall. But after I applied it, it didn't make my eyes pop at all. And there was tons of fall out from all 4 of the shadows. Not to mention the amount of shadow needed to be packed onto my brush was ridiculous for such a depressing outcome. The Black gel eyeliner, was way less than impressive and to be really honest, I'm not even sure why Victoria's Secret is selling it. When I dipped the eyeliner brush in the gel, all it did was scrape. Not okay. So I tried a different brush, giving the company the benfit of the doubt. Even my Sonia Kashuk eyeliner brush wasn't picking up the product. I'm disappointed. But I should've known better, I purchased a single eyeshadow color last  year from Victoria's Secret and pretty much had the same problem. Too much product had to be applied to a brush, and too much product wound up on my cheeks rather than my eyelid.
Beware girls, don't let the sapphire jeweled packaging fool you..

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West | Rolling Stone Music | Music Reviews

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West Rolling Stone Music Music Reviews

I posted this link so everyone can read about how insane his album is.
This is the download link.
Thank you & you're welcome.



Apparently, I've been living under a rock for a while, because I've never even heard of Tank. He's releasing his THIRD album this year, and I've never even heard of him. I'm pretty disappointed in myself, but I heard this song while driving to the mall with a friend, and had to listen to it again...and again and again.
As soon as I got home I downloaded it, along with just about every other song of his for one reason. END OF STORY. I can't even begin to describe to your how in love I am with him right now, and quickly my morals would fly out the window if I was left alone in a room with him.
Celebration features Drake, and who doesn't love Drake? Really?
But Ladies, this is for you. This song is 100% seductive and it gets straight to the point. I like it.

Leave your thought in a comment, I'm interested to hear what everyone thinks.
And if you have any suggestions for new music, leave that in a comment too.

No No No to the Cameltoe

hi girlss !
The weather's changing, and so are the colors on the trees and I am in HEAVEN these days wearing my cardigans and cute fall boots. But one trend I am definitely not a fan of is leggings. It's not because I'm not skinny, so haters back the eff off right now.. it's because way too many girls somehow think it's okay to wear leggings as pants. NO!
So here's my rant about these ACCESSORIES and ways to wear them:

1. Dear BIG GIRLS, you know who the hell you are, don't you dare throw on a pair of leggings. If you even think... no, if you even LOOK at a pair of leggings in a store your ass needs a reality check. You can email me and we'll discuss all of about 764 reasons why purchasing such an item is a mistake and a tragedy. Not only for you and your curves but for innocent bystandards who ventured out of their homes on a beautiful fall day to find your ass galavanting around town looking like a goddamn fool.

Again, I'm not the skinniest girl in the world and I can't even imagine myself in a pair of leggings. I'd look 190% ridiculous and nothing short of a hot mess.

2. If you're gonna throw on a pair, please be sure to check what you're wearing underneath those babies.
.. Still confused..? Invest in seamless underwear homegirl. Simply put.

This looks ridiculous, I don't care skinny you are, I don't need to see this when your walking in front of me.
OH! I guess I'll add this in here too. DO NOT wear your ruffly, striped, starred, underwear laced in jingling coins .. unneccesary. Really. Why do you even have those? Why do your panties need to have currency on them ? ugh..

3. This might be the bigges offense I've seen & just about everyone does this.
Do NOT wear a T-shirt with these shits. Wear a long shirt, or a tunic. Leggings are not pants. You wouldn't find them in Forever 21, or Old Navy, or Urban Outfitters with the pants... They're in Accessories okay...
There's a perfectly acceptable logic for this... THEY'RE NOT FUCKING PANTS.
So dont just throw on a hoodie with those metallic gold leggings and a pair of flipflops and think you're ready to take on the world, cuz you're not. we all think you looks crazy.

I'm not even sure where to begin... They're cute. Don't get me wrong, but you have to make sure they make sense with your outfit and the environment you're in. If you're just going to class, sure, through on a black boyfriend shirt and a pair of burgundy leggings with your boots. No problems. But the metallic, sheeny, gold leggings with a black boyfriend tshirt in class is confusing. Did you just come from a rave? I'm just confused, because you obviously took the time to decide 'yeah, you know, I think i AM gonna wear these discoball, saturday night fever leggings. Totally appropriate. No. No it's not.
If you're gonna go out to a club with your friends, thats 100% acceptable. Just make sure it makes sense.

5. The last thing I'm gonna mention is cameltoe.
I really don't think I need to say anything else about it. It's unacceptable. I don't care how cute you are, I can see your vagina lips & thats unneccesary. Go home.

bleh, if you guys have some of your own rules, feel free to leave a comment
thanks. let's end this disaster!

HAUTELOOK: GUESS & Smashbox Cosmetics

If you're unaware of the Hautlook website, you've been missing out BIGTIME.
Every 2weeks or so the site sells different desginer, brand name products for about 40-70% off department store prices. It's unreal.
All you have to do is sign up and and start shopping ! It's a great way to buy gifts for people and yourself without breaking your bank account. And the site is 100% legitimate, what you see is what you get.
Right now, GUESS and Smashbox Cosmetics have featured items on the site, I definitely suggest taking  a look.
That's what I'm doing !
Do you LOVE this bag ?

or wait, maybe this one!

If so then you NEED to head over to HauteLook right now, because items are limited and they are sure to run out with the deals they have before the next events! There's a makeup kit that Smashbox is selling for half regualr price that I've been eyeing up since this morning.

voluminous million lashes

yeah, that's the name of the mascara. Voluminous Million Lashes by L'oreal. That's right, the same company that makes Voluminous Mascara; one of the most talked about mascaras on the market. I noticed this product while browsing through makeup aisles in WalMart. Packaged in Metallic gold with a 'new' sticker placed perfectly on the edge of the product, I had to have it.
I promsed myself I wouldn't open it though, not until my Voluminous was all used up.
The next day was another story. & Can you honestly blame me. The product claims to separate lashes from corner to corner and give even the skimpiest of lashes extraordinary volume.... and THAT IT DOES. ! im having trouble uploading my before and after pics, but as soon as the internet works in my favor, i'll post them.

Another feature is its applicator brush, fatter than the original Voluminous mascara and a tube that eliminates excess product on the brush [ so, basically, I don't have to scrape extra mascara off onto the top of the tube before I use it on my lashes.. which is definitely a plus.]
For around $8, I'm impressed, but hey, who am I. try it yourself.

Purple Night

Fall is quickly approaching, which means some minor changes in makeup. If you were wearing powder foundation or tinted moisturizer during the summer, you can pull out your liquid foundation without fear of the humidity ruining it. Richer colors are coming back, and I'm really excited about it. Deep reds, and burgundys are some of my favorites, but last week I did a pretty simple purple eye for the nighttime and got positive feedback. So here's the look

The majority of the colors are from my bh cosmetics 120 eyeshadow palette[2nd edition]. I'll post a link at the end of this post to the website. Their products are really great quality with terrific color payoff at decent prices.
One of my favorite things about this look, is the versatility of it. You can change the intensity of the darkest purple shadow for a more edgy daytime look and change the crease color for a completely different attitude. Unfortunately, since most of the colors were from my palette, I couldn't really take great pictures of the colors, but I did some swatches for you guys to get an idea.

I did my normal foundation routine then used urban decay's primer potions as my eyeshadow primer.
1. place darkest purple on the lid ONLY
2. add the light shimmery purple to crease and blend the 2 colors so there is a gradient effect.
3. pop a small amount of the silver on the inner corner
4. use a neutral eyeshadow as your highlight
5. line your upper eyelid and apply your favorite mascara and a wine colored blush to your cheeks

Neutral Everyday Look : Lorac Little Black Palette

I mentioned in my posts from the other day, that I picked up a few items last time I was in Sephora, and the Lorac Little Black Palette was another one of my purchases.
This set comes with 4 gorgeous, creamy lorac eye shadows & a travel size of their behind the scenes eye primer(great name)

unfortunately the darkest eyeshadow broke off a little bit on the ride home, so don't mind the messy-ness of my box!

I used every color in the set for a quick and pretty casual look on Monday, and I got a bunch of compliments about how the colors complimented my skin tone. So for all the brown-skinned girls out there I recommend this palette ! For $32, I really can't complain. I'm sure I'll be addicted to this palette as soon as I run out of the colors in my Naked Palette.

 Here's how to get the look :

I used loaded up the color at the top right on a crease brush & applied to the crease
applied the lightest shade all over my lid area

applied darkest shade to my outer 'V' area & blended.
lined my eyes & applied mascara

finished off the look with L'oreal True Match blush in Sweet Ginger and Benefit's Lipcolor in Lady's Choice.

LOVE: teenage dream & just the way you are by MIKE TOMPKINS

okay, i've been keeping this youtube sensation to myself for a while now because I think his talent is amaaaaazing, &I'm enjoying it alot ALOT. but I just decided to grow up, get over it, & share this with more people. Mike Tompkins is the name of this blue-eyed cover artist. His acapella mashup of Katy Perry's Teenage Dream and Bruno Mars' Just The Way You Are earned him a mention on Perez Hilton's site and he's quickly raising in popularity. I can't really describe his style without mentioning how creative he is. With no use of instruments, Tompkins creates more than 10 beats, rhythms & sounds & SINGSSS ! He's great, hopefully you love him as much as I do.
Spread the word about him if you do, here's the link to his YouTube page :

PRODUCT REVIEW: Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray

Last time I stopped in Sephora I picked up some things I'd been eyeing for a while and this setting spray was on of them. I'm one of those people who does their makeup in the morning and then if I'm going out at night, I have to redo my entire face because my makeup looks's such a drag.
I tried it this weekend and I have to say I'm not disappointed with the purchase. It's made the Skindinavia, and they've implemented the use of Temperature Control Technology that keeps your face cooler than the rest of your body, so you don't have to worry about sweating too much while bustin a move and having your makeup run. It's suitable for all skin types and claims to last for 16hours ! I didn't wear my makeup for 16 hours so I'm not sure if it would hold up, but one Friday I did my makeup around 10am applied the spray to set everything, went off to class, the library, out to lunch and when I came back to the room around 730pm my makeup looked fine. I only reapplied my blush when I left again around 11pm. so 13 hrs isn't bad.


Here's a link so you can try it for yourself from Sephora : Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray
Here's a link to the Skindinavia site, just in case you're interested in their entire line of setting spray products: Skindinavia
