Maybelline Color Tattoo - 35 Tough as Taupe

I recently heard there was a lot of hype going on and had to try this Maybelline Color Tattoo line. The one that I got is called 35 Tough as Taupe. I heard that it's a dupe of the MAC paint pots. I personally never tried MAC paint pots before so I can't compare the texture and quality together side by side. I do know that this cream shadow that I got is really pigmented and last through the day after a couple swipe on my arm. I did a test of it and didn't remove the cream shadow on my arm and it lasted about couple of hours.  Personally I find it a bit dry and hard to blend without a primer, but I will do another test with an eye primer to see if blend in easier.

Here are some pictures and the retail price for this is $6.99 at my local Rite Aide drugstore.

What's in my makeup bag?

In this post I'll be featuring my makeup bag items that I bring with me majority of the time.  I only bring the essential items out, which consist of concealer, blush, powder, eyebrow pencil and lipsticks. I don't carry a lot of stuff with me. I tend to keep my makeup bag light as much as possible. I consider myself a minimal person. I don't need too much stuff and only the essential items that are good enough for me that last me the whole entire day. On a typical day I normally apply my makeup on the train since I have that extra time to spare during my train commute.

Here are the items that I have in my makeup bag:
  • Clinique - all about the eyes concealer
  • Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer
  • Paul & Joe Powder Compact
  • NYX Blush - Peach
  • Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil
  • Prestige Pencil Eyeliner
  • Paul & Joe Lipstick 

Anyway what's in your makeup bag?

Wet 'n' Wild 8-pan Palette - Blue Had Me At Hello

In this post I will be reviewing the Wet 'n' Wild 8-pan Palette - Blue Had Me At Hello.  By the way I also love the name Blue Had me at Hello, like in Jerry Maguire Movie, which sounds so romantic.  I got this 8 pan palette awhile ago, but never had the chance to review this or use this.  I played with it a few times and I have to say this 8 pan palette is very pigmented.  If you like bold look, this is a very good palette for you to try.  I had a hard time searching for these 8 pan palette and finally found this in at Walgreen in Manhattan awhile ago. Personally I notice that cool tones doesn't work well on me.  I like warmer shades and since I played with it a few times it's hard for me to pull off a decent look.  I will try to review this post more in depth with a FOTD look.

Here is a few pics of how this 8 pan palette looks, along with swatches:

Marc Jacobs Fragrances

Here are pics of my Marc Jacobs Fragrances.  I decided to purchase the value set rather than buying each rollerball individually with my $15 dollar coupon off from Sephora. Otherwise purchasing the rollerball individually alone would cost $20 dollar.  I rarely splurge on perfumes but since I got the opportunity with my $15 dollars coupon, I decided to get this fragrances just to try it out.  I'm not an expertise in describing the sense of these perfumes that I got, but when I swiped the trios set; it's smells more on the floral side than fruity side.  Also I really like the packaging the comes with a tinned casing.

This trio fragrance set includes: 
  • Daisy Eau 
  • Lola Eau 
  • Daisy Eau so Fresh 
Retail at Sephora for $38.00 US dollars
