Paul & Joe Mix & Match Refillable Cheek Blush Colors

I recently purchase Paul & Joe Mix & Match Refillable Cheek blush and compact. This is a new Spring Carousel of Paul & Joe beauty line for 2013. I couldn't resist from getting this cause the compact is so pretty and elegant at the same time.  Secondly, this compact and the blush colors are calling me.  I also like the fact that it's magnetic and refillable.  I could use the compact alone when I'm done using the blush.  What I like about this compact is that it's small and travel friendly.  The downsize it that the compact is a bit small, I wish it could have been bigger a bit.  I really like the motif chrysanthemum on the casing; making it extra unique and somewhat vintage at the same time.  As for the blush I ordered Cinema 04, a pretty coral matte blush; soft and warm pink tone that warms up your cheeks after using this.  I hope in the long run I'll order more refillable blushes, it's so hard to decide cause most of the colors looks so pretty.  Let me know if you are going to try this blush as well.

Sweet Valentine's Day 2013 Tutorial

I know Valentine's Day is coming around the corner and I wanted to do a tutorial look before I head to Paris.  This is my second time pulling a V-day look and I personally like this soft look that emphasize on my eyes more.  This is my first time putting on falsies, which I'm trying to emphasize on making my eyes appear more doe eyed and innocent.  I finally got the opportunity to use my new stuff that I recently got.   I used my new Urban Decay Glinda Wizard of Oz palette, the Urban Decay Naked Flushed, the M.A.C Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara Double Effet and my Bobbi Brown BB cream for this tutorial.  I'm not sure how well you'll see the gradient effect on my eye shadow shades from one of the picture I posted, but it gave me a purplish vibe look and that's pretty much it.  I find this palette a bit mediocre cause rest of the other shades are pretty light.  The Glinda palette doesn't give you much options for different looks if you use this palette directly itself, however it's easy to use if you follow the step-by-step instruction card. The rest of the makeup items that I used for this tutorial are superb.  I really like the naked flushed cause it helped me contour my cheek bones without making my face looking orange.  Also the mascara gave me a va va voom superb long lashes and I didn't need to use falsies with it.  The bb cream was not heavy at all and it helped me concealed my red blemishes.  Anyway are you planning to dress up for v-day for your special someone?  If not, stay gorgeous and have fun on v-day!  Happy early Valentine's Day everyone!

Makeup Spring Cleaning and New Haul

Recently I decided to get rid of some of my old unwanted makeups that I don't currently use.  I believe some of my old makeups has been expired and it's no point for me to keep them anymore.  I'm so glad that I got rid of it and organizing my makeup draw was fun.  Now I feel more organized and that I can run in my makeup draw without digging through some other makeups that I don't need. I did a post about When does your Cosmetics Expire?, which I posted awhile ago and it's an essential guide of helping you to declutter your makeups as well.

After decluttering some of my older makeups, I went ahead to purchase some newer stuff.  I know I'm pretty bad, but I can't resist from not getting it.  I heard good raves that these products are a top hit items for 2013. 

Some of the new haul that I got are:
  • Urban Decay Naked Flushed 
  • Urban Decay The Glinda Palette 
  • M.A.C Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara Double Effet
I have to say I'm not a Mascara expert cause I don't usually apply mascara on a daily basis.  I have a friend who works in a cosmetic company and stated to me that this mascara is really good and I was instantly sold to it.  I got this at amazing price, the retail value for this mascara is $20 bucks but I got it for $9. I can't wait to try all of these new items.  Will keep you posted on my reviews of these products that I got soon.
