Every year on Cyber Monday Too Faced has a limited edition Mystery Bag up for grabs. This year, I snagged one and it arrived today! So exciting!

SPOILER ALERT!!!

I opened up the Mystery Bag as fast as I could – I love surprises!

And…

The contents of this Mystery Bag included — a mini Better than Sex mascara, a full sized Creme lipstick in Double Bubble (bright bubblegum pink), a full sized Perfect Eyes black waterproof eye liner, a full sized Size Queen mascara, and the Too Faced Peanut Butter palette. That is a pretty good deal for $39!!!

I already have the Too Faced Peanut Butter palette, so I am deciding whether I should keep it as a fresh one, or sell it…

The Better than Sex mascara is ALWAYS included with everything as a bonus, so that wasn’t really a shocker to me.

The bubblegum pink lipstick is actually really fun and cute – I tried it on right away. It is a little sheer so it is not overwhelmingly pink like a liquid lipstick.

I’ll be trying the eye liner and Size Queen mascara tomorrow.

All in all, it was a great purchase and I hope to snag one of these Mystery Bags next year! Mystery Bags are super fun!

 

… Yes, I’m back to blogging now. I took a looooong break. I was super busy with life – i moved! And we all know that moving is stressful!

Urban Decay Little Vice Lipstick Set

90s, Beauty

Screen Shot 2017-09-10 at 1.06.04 PM

I picked up this sweet little set of mini lipsticks by Urban Decay at the Sephora Holiday Preview Event yesterday. This is a great selection of five lipstick colors (pictured below) and will be great for my every mood. They are smaller sized than the regular Vice lipsticks. It’s really a cute little set.

 

1993 is my fav, actually, because it takes me back to high school days. Back then, we coveted MAC lipsticks and Twig was THE shade with an obvious lip liner around it. And when it wasn’t Twig, it was frosty pinky purples like B-Cup and Pervette (also by MAC). Oh yeah, and of course a MAC eyeshadow in a tacky blue – Tilt was the one – metallic AF.

 

Okay, I just dated myself. Totally. This makes me think of a convo I heard in a Sephora not too long ago where a prospective employee was being interviewed. They were quizzing her on the history of Urban Decay and were like ‘do you know how UD started?’ She was like ‘…that is before my time…’ I knew… nail polish. I didn’t say though, since I didn’t feel like ruining the vibe of her interview. I was such a Urban Decay fan. When they branched out into eye shadows and lipsticks, I snapped up as many as I could. That Vice re-release of retro shades – I had all of them… And those individual eye shadow pans – I loved it. Those wild colors… And as much Hard Candy as I could afford for my nails. We all wore those ugly plastic jelly rings from HC polishes. OKAY! I have to stop. Too much 90s flashback.

Have a Happy Sunday!

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!!!

Too Cool For School – Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Tint

Beauty

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.

Sugarpill’s Pumpkin Spice!

Yay! Pumpkin Spice lipstick and eyeshadow by Sugarpill is now available!

I had a little panic when at first it said ‘sold out’ online, and so I put in 2 orders when the error was corrected. That means I ordered extra by accident. Well, it is Christmas soon so someone will be getting an awesome gift!

I picked up a MoneyMaker eyeshadow, Trinket & Kimchi liquid lipsticks too… How could I not???

I have spent SO much $ on make up today, it is not even funny.

I am going to have to aggressively sell stuff in my closet to try and make back all the $ I am losing through my shopping habits!

Did anyone order the Pumpkin Spice stuff?

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette!

The countdown to MIDNIGHT – when The Palette of the Year – Too Faced’s Sweet Peach – was re-released to the world!

Then… I was in the ‘Queue-it’ line for 3 hours and 40 minutes…

But, I set my alarm, and had a nap until my warning email, when I logged into the line again and made my purchase!

The Too Faced website was S-L-O-W and there was a moment when I thought it would crash – but it held up and I was able to order the palette. Since I was there, I got some of the other items from the collection too. Couldn’t resist!

I dropped a lot of $ already today, and Sugarpill’s Pumpkin Spice is coming out later today. I am HURTING! I don’t want to look at my bank statement this month…

That is the sampling of gold and silver metallic freckles included in the pack. These are so super cute and I can’t wait to try them out this holiday season.

I was totally inspired by metallic add-on freckles when I watched Sugarpill’s video promoting the new PumpkinSpice lipstick and eyeshadow coming out THIS WEDS DEC 14th!!!

Check out the link to this video here. The girl called Autumn rocks those silver dot freckles and is my beauty inspiration!
