When I saw the 500 point Beauty Insider reward from Too Faced, I knew it was time to spend some of the points I had accumulated. It did not disappoint!!! This cute box of treats had me all excited! I opened it and found the sweetest mini Chocolate Bar palette – perfect size for traveling! It also came with a mini eyeshadow primer, better than sex mascara, and Melted liquid lipstick.

The shades in the mini Chocolate Bar palette are totally perfect. The Chocolate Soleil tint is perfect for a sun kissed glow. I love Too Faced and am excited to bring this palette with me on my next trip!!!

Clean your Brushes!

How often do you clean your make-up brushes? I do at least once a week – usually on Sunday evening! It is very important to do this to keep them bacteria-free and to keep your make up fresh. Gentle soap and water works fine and be sure to let them air dry. Also, be sure not to get the part at the handle and metal interface wet or the bristles can become unglued.

Too Cool For School – Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Tint

Too Cool For School is the brand that brought us Egg Mellow Butter (a DREAM!) and I was curious to try their cosmetics line. What better places to start than with a lip tint! That stained, i-just-drank-a-red-drink lip look is very trendy these days and I am always looking for something to achieve this. So I purchased the Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Tint in #1 Lost in You. It is sooooo cute!

The packaging really caught my eye! Look at how this pencil was wrapped and the artwork inside! LOVE!

I have tried this and actually have used it almost every day going to work this week. Next I want to try another shade and another product of theirs. The Mascara, maybe? Has anyone  tried anything else from Dinoplatz?

Sugarpill’s new limited edition Valentine’s Day palette “Feline Fancy” has arrived and it is just as good – if not better – as I imagined it to be. It is simply amazing!!! The packaging is just so cute with such sweet artwork it makes the whole package a totally awesome experience.

Just look at the inside of the box, under the palette!

It is little details like this that make Sugarpill’s stuff some of my favorite ever.

And the back of the box –

Mmmm! Sooooo nice.

The colors themselves are beautiful and highly pigmented, true to all of Sugarpill’s stuff. I haven’t tried the liquid lipstick yet – dark lips are not really my thing – but from looking at online photos, it can look very pretty on a pale complexion.

This is the palette I will be reaching for this Valentine’s Day – and many other days! It is so much fun. There are some left still online and you can buy one for yourself here.

Rose Gold Eyelash Curler by Tweezerman

I’ve become obsessed with Rose Gold!

This Rose Gold Tweezerman eyelash curler is my latest Sephora purchase. VIB Rouge is great because shipping is free and fast. Not to mention the constant flow of samples and travel sized products that come along with all the online orders!

This eyelash curler works well and it is so pretty to look at.

Pretty tools make me want to do a pretty job with the make up!

Nails Inc Color of the Day

Nails Inc. Cornwall Gardens with Primrose Street layered on top – a totally beautiful iridescent look! And my new Nails Inc Tootsie Tamer foot-scrub in a lovely rose gold.

I used Nails Inc Nail Kale Basecoat, followed by Cornwall Gardens – one layer – then a coat of Primrose Street followed by the Nails Inc top coat.

Part of my Nails Inc. Haul…

I am only posting part of my Nails Inc. haul because I got so much stuff from them it’s embarrassing… In the above pic, from left to right – ‘Uptown,’ ‘Primrose Street,’ ‘Chelsea Square,’ and ‘Next to Nothing.’

Okay, I’ll tell you what else I got – some minis in a set with the Rosé all Day water bottle, the detox nail treatment, cuticle oil, and their amazing Nail Kale Basecoat.

I’ve started the detox treatment already and after one night, my nails are starting to heal!!!

So back to the above photo – they are all pinks and I have to say that ‘Primrose Street’ is my favorite. It is a sheer and iridescent coating that can be used on nails alone to make them subtly amazing, or layered on top of any shade to transform it into something special and unicorn-like.

I would do a demo but my nail shape is so ugly right now. I really need a manicure. I’m bringing my own colors to the salon and it’s all Nails Inc.

Happy Friday!

Mail Day – Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat Von D!

Beauty

image

This beauty arrived today! I am so excited to try it out! I was lusting after the Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat von D but it had sold out. But then, it was re-stocked on the Kat von D website and I absolutely had to have it.

image

The package arrived in seductive black Kat von D tissue in a Kat von D box.

image

After the holographic box was removed, this pearly opalescent white triangle of a palette was in my hands.

image

And opening it, I saw the four beautiful unicorn-like shades. There are enough swatches out there on the internet showing off how lovely the colors are. I will put together a beautiful ephemeral look with these colors and transform myself into a mermaid unicorn!
