Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Swatches

Urban Decay Naked2 Basics

I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it! Ok no more Pointer Sisters, just Urban Decay Naked2 Basics.

Yes folks you have heard correctly, there is a new Naked Basics palette in town and she is even better than the first (if you ask me). Like the first one, this features six gorgeous matte neutral eyeshadow shades, but this time, everything is cool-toned. yay! Yep they cooled everything down with cool taupe shades, which I am allll about.

The palette itself looks very much like the first one but it’s a slightly lighter shade and the writing is gunmetal, rather than brown like the first one. It’s the same size and has the same large mirror.

Top Ten Tuesday – My Favorite Drugstore Products

Top Ten Favorite Drugstore Products

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday and my favorite drugstore products!

Let me start by saying this was an incredibly hard task. I mean, there are so many great drugstore products out there now so narrowing it down to just 10 things was ridiculous. There are so many other things I love, so these are really just ones off the top of my head. :)

You will probably notice that half of this list is comprised of Milani products. Yeah, they are really that good.

My Favorite Mascaras

My Favorite Mascaras

I’ve been wanting to do a post about my favorite mascaras for awhile but I was waiting until I could re-purchase one of them. Since I finally got around to doing that, today you will find out what I love the most (at the moment)!

There are seven mascaras that I am currently having an affair with. That might seem like a lot, but hey, I’m a Gemini and I get bored easily. ;)

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Clair

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Clair

You know, I’m not sure how Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Clair ever escaped my attention, but I’ve got her firmly in my grubby little paws now!

Of course I saw this at Sephora, because these are exclusive to Sephora stores. And did you know, there are 99 shades now? Isn’t that insane? Of course I want like half of them but I’ll have to settle for just a few.

The Full-On Lip Polishes have a sheer, shimmery finish and some tingly lip plumping action. The lip plumping tingle is really quite mellow though, so I don’t mind it. It goes away pretty quickly as well. They include vitamins A and E for hydration and they’re super glossy and non-sticky. They do have a brown sugar scent, so keep that in mind if you are sensitive to scents.

MAC A Novel Romance Swatches and Review

MAC A Novel Romance

MAC A Novel Romance is the latest collection from the brand and despite the cheesiness of the name and photos, I kind of love it!

I’ll confess: I have never read a romance novel all the way through. I had a friend when I was younger who was hardcore into them, and in fact is now a Senior Editor at Harlequin Books! I would sometimes flip through them and read some of the ridiculously written lines. They are kind of fun to read actually, and I’ve had a secret fantasy of writing one for probably 25 years. :)
