FOTD: Teal reflects

This week I was on vacation from work and I promised my self to do more Fotds to post on the blog but luckily I had some major issues with my right eye and the skin around the eye was red and irritated the whole week :( Therefore I couldn't do much and was really bored and annoyed. My eye has gotten better over the week and I couldn't wait any longer. So I decided to do this fun sparkly look just because I had not worn any makeup all week. I came up with this look and used some of the new eyeshadows I picked up from Inglot this week. I hope you guys like it and let me know what you think :)

FOTD: Hot Pink

Yesterday was my Dad's Birthday and we were originally going to have family over and have dinner at home but last minute plans got changed and we ended up going out to my uncle's restaurant. We had so much fun and ate like crazy. I had bought a hot pink sweater from Forever 21 a while ago that I was dying to wear and last night was the perfect night to wear it. It was bright and kept me warm all night. I based my look according to the sweater and finally used my Urban Decay Naked2 palette for the first time. I hope you guys enjoy the look and let me know what you think about it :)

Holiday Gift Idea's 2011

The holiday Season is here and it's time for you to give your loved one's the most amazing beauty products and gift sets out for the season. So I'm here to share with you some gift ideas. The things mentioned here would make a perfect gift for a Beauty Addict like my self :)

1. Urban Decay Naked Palette or Naked 2

This is a must have for anyone who loves make up and it's the best selling palette of all time. This palette is suitable for any skin tone since it comes with 12 neutral eyeshadows that range from light to dark. If you or anyone your buying the gift for already has the naked palette don't worry because now Urban Decay is out with Naked 2 the second edition to the Naked palette which also has 12 neutral eyeshadows and would be a perfect gift for someone who loved the first naked palette.


2. Wild & Chic Best of Make Up For Ever Kit

If you are new to Make Up For Ever this would be the perfect gift for you. Since the set includes the company's Top 6 best selling products in which 3 are full size products.  The kit is valued at $55 and to me that's a great deal because if I went and bought these products separately it would cost me a lot more. The color's included in the kit are universal shades so they will flatter anyone who try's them. The set includes: HD Primer, HD Powder, Aqua Eyes in 0L, Smoky Lash in Black, Aqua Cream in #13, Lab Shine #S4 

3. Wild & Chic Aqua Cream Collection by Make Up For Ever

If you are looking to splurge and want some high quality product then this is the palette for you. If you own any of the Aqua cream's you know how well they wear. The Aqua Creams are 100% waterproof and once you put them on they don't budge. This palette contains 10 different shades of the Aqua Creams and also comes with a brush. The shades in this palette are more on the neutral side so you will get good use out of them. Aqua Creams can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks. This is by far my favorite gift palette out of all the ones mentioned in this post. I adore my Aqua Creams and wear them pretty much every day. This set is priced at $175 you save $45 by buying this set instead of buying each aqua cream separately. Now that's a great deal :))

4. Nars- Danmari All about Cheek Palette

If you know Nars you know they are known for there Blush. Well this palette brings you 6 of there best blushes one which can be used as a highlighter and one which can be used as a bronzer. If you don't own any Nars blushes then I would suggest you pick this palette up. I even bought this for my mom and she loves it :) It's valued at $65 and only available for a limited time.


5.Sephora's Best Seller's

Also comes in a really cute red bag valued at $28.

8.Bath and Body Gift Sets

Dark and Glittery

I cut my nails short for the winter and have been obsessing over deep dark blue shades. I came across this color from Illamasqua called Phallic. Let me tell you about this blue I have seen many blue polishes but this one to me is unique. My pictures don't do it justice and you really have to see the polish in person. It's a dark blue with a blue/purple duocrome glitter. The glitter is not chunky at all it's more like sparkle/shimmer. It's beautiful and I think my favorite for the winter. I did my nails with this polish for the week. It's beautiful on its own but I wanted to add a little pizazz to my nails so I added Milani -Gem to my ringer finger. This is another great fun polish and perfect for the holidays or for anytime you want to add a little something extra to your manicure. It's also a great dupe for Deborah Lippmann Birthday cake. So if you don't want to spend major $$ and get a similar or almost the same look then I suggest you pick up Milani- Gem. What is your favorite polish for the season? Also let me know if you have any other favorite dark blue polishes for me to try.


  * Illamasqua- Phallic
  * Milani- Gems # 530

New Obession-Glitter/Colored eyeliner

          I have been obsessed with glitter/colored eyeliners lately. They are so much fun and perfect for any holiday look. Even if you do a smoky or neutral eye you can jazz it up with some glitter or a colored eyeliner. You can really make your eyes pop with just some liner without over doing it. It's also a  great way to do something different then your typical black eyeliner. You can complete a look with just a hint of color and since glitter is really big this season now is the perfect time to play around with it. I use a bright colored liner even when I'm on the go and need something quick. I prefer liquid liner for a crisp clean look and just a line across the top lid and some mascara and I'm ready to go. Gel liner's are fun too but I usually pair them up with similar color's that I have on my lid to really enhance the look. Colored eyeliner's can also be worn as a base for an eyeshadow to make it stay on longer and to make the eyeshadow more vibrant. The glitter one's can be layered on top of the eyeshadow if you don't want to do a simple line.

          Some of my favorite colored liners are from Makeup Forever and Glitter ones are from Mac although I recently bought a glitter eyeliner from Too faced that I'm absolutely in love with and need to go buy them all. Unfortunately the glitter eyeliners I have from Mac are not available anymore but they really need to bring them back. You can try checking out some CCO's because they still might carry them. Also I love the Urban Decay Liquid Liner but in my opinion they dry out too fast. I have only had mine for a few months and the consistency of it has changed already and it has become very thick. I prefer Makeup Forever Aqua Liners over the Mac Liquid Liners because they are more pigmented and stay on all day long. Mac Fluidline is something I use almost everyday. I think it's the best gel formula out there and stays put all day. My favorite brush to use with the fluidline is Mac #211 it makes the liner go on with ease and even a beginner can put on liner perfectly with this brush.

What do you think of Glitter/Colored eyeliners? What kind of eyeliners do you like?

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill

                About three weeks ago I saw a lot of my fellow twitter folks talk about Giorgio Armani having a 30% off sale with free shipping and I knew this would be a perfect time for me to try out some of there products. I did a little research to find out what are some of there must have products and ended up on Temptalia's website.Where she gave there Instense eyeshadows a great review. So obviously I ended up ordering a few of them. I was super excited for the sale since it was my first time buying Armani cosmetics. I also picked up a lipstick which is super fun. The lipstick has a magnetic cap so it's a lot of fun to play with and the texture is so creamy the lipstick just glides on. The eye shadows are to die for they are such high quality and super pigmented on top of that they don't budge and stay on all day. I got the eyeshadow in number #1, #2, #3 and #6. The lipstick shade I picked up was Rouge D'armani in #600. I'm really happy with the quality of my Armani products and I definitely want to pick up more of the eyeshadows and also want to try the Eyes to kill Mascara as I have heard some great things about it. These products are on the higher price range but then again you get what you pay for and personally I think these are some of the best eyeshadows I have ever used. Hope you guys get to try them out and if you own them already let me know what you think :)
