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.
