Naked2 On Sephora!

Hey, loves! Sorry for the huge lack of updates. I'm currently typing with one hand because I'm feeding my son. Soooo busy! I hope you all had a great holiday. My family and I had a wonderful Christmas. :)

Anyway, the Urban Decay Naked2 palette is officially up for sale on Sephora's website (it won't be in stores until the end of Janurary). HAPPY SHOPPING!! Be quick, it sells out fast!

A few new MAC lip products

Happy November! Here's a few new lip products that I recently purchased from MAC:

MAC recently released their ridiculously huge holiday collection. As far as the color collection goes (Glitter and Ice), nothing sparked my interest other than a few dazzleglasses and a lipstick or two.

Double Spin (Cremesheen) and
Dressed to Dazzle Dazzleglass.

Double Spin

Dressed to Dazzle

Top: Double Spin, Dressed to Dazzle

 Double Spin is a very pale, milky pink. It's so pale that it makes it a little difficult to pull off, especially because it's quick to show every imperfection on your lips (so make sure you exfoliate). I like to dab it into my lips with my finger. It looks more wearable on me that way. Naturally, I had to buy Dressed to Dazzle to compliment the lipstick. It's the perfect layering gloss to go hand in hand with Double Spin. This is a lip combo that I've been frequenting lately. I get three to maybe four hours of a wear before needing to reapply.

Glitter and Ice

Because I loved Dressed to Dazzle so much, I wound up buying Glitter & Ice too. If you're looking for a shimmery, glittery, nude gloss to layer of your nude lipsticks, this is what you need. I just got it today and wore it over Honeylove. Gorgeous. I imagine this will layer very nicely over Myth as well.

And I bought one more...


For good measure, I also purchased C-Thru lipglass. This is a permanent shade. I haven't gotten the chance to mess around with it yet but it's a gorgeous nude with subtle micro shimmer -- another nice layering gloss.

In the mail...

Happy hump day! I got a few things in the mail today, one package from Sephora and one from MAC. Bear with me as I'm fiddling around with this Blogger app...

Edit: The Blogger app is a bust. Thank goodness I was playing with it at home because I had to run back to my mac to fix everything. All's well. :)

Long time, no see! It's been sevenish weeks since my last update. Sorry about that. My kiddos take up the majority of my time these days but like I said before, I have no intention of giving up on this blog. Here's a quick FOTD. The quality isn't great since I took the pictures with my iPhone. Plus, my house doesn't have the best lighting for this sort of thing but it'll do... right? ;)

Life and Babies!

This isn't a makeup related post but don't worry, I have one. I just wanted to let give a quick update on my life and why I'm not updating like I used to... you know, 9 months ago. I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy on 8.31.11. I'm very blessed to have my two kids but I'm also very busy (and tired!). This is a huge adjustment for all of us. I'm not putting the blog at a complete standstill. Despite having a new addition to our family, I try to keep some things the same. I think it makes the transition easier. And for me, I love my blog. I love makeup. It's a guilty pleasure that I'd like to hang onto for a bit longer. So while I won't be posting often, I'll still be here and hopefully you'll keep reading. Thanks for reading. :)

Catch Up Time!

I've been such a naughty blogger, huh?  Please bare with me, I'll be 39 weeks tomorrow. Baby is due anytime now so I apologize for not putting a lot of focus on the blog. Anyway, I quickly wanted to share some of my recent purchases with you...

MAC Parisian Skies and Hocus Pocus from Blogger's Obsessions

To quickly sum up my thoughts on the shadows, I expected to love Hocus Pocus more than I do. It's GORGEOUS, I just don't think it blends as well as I'd like it to. I still need to play with it more. Parisian Skies is a beautiful color. I'm not big on blue but this one is special. It's the kind of color that can work for a whole array of people. It's also very pigmented and the color payoff is excellent.

Parisian Skies

Hocus Pocus

Ulta: Seche Vite Top Coat, Butter London Nail Lacquer in Teddy Girl, Earth Therapeutics pumice stone and ceramic pedicure tool

Sephora: Benefit Legally Broze set, YSL Faux Cils mascara (deluxe sample), Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Jo'Mina, Happy Birthday, Beautiful! from Philosophy (my Sephora birthday gift!)

I already swatched the Legally Bronze set and I tested everything out, I just need to review it. Oh and I also bought something for the MAC Me Over collection that I can't wait to share with you guys. :)
