Lately Ive been doing a lot of makeup buying from Sephora and MAC (wtih the exception of elf and stuff from Cherry culture, but that still has to be shipped) so Im trying to get stuff from Wal-Mart or Shoppers when I get that urge to get or try something new, because lets face it Im not rich so if I can get good things for cheaper im certainly going to try it.

First product Im going to talk about is a blush from hard candy, its called honeymoon. Its this peachy/pink color with some shimmer through it.Its suck apretty color when I tried it the first time I knew I was going to love it. It goes on fairly sheer just enough to give youa little pop of color on your cheeks to brighten your face up. Theres a really nice sheer shimmer through it, it gives you a really beautiful shimmer if your cheek hits the light the right way. I dont like shimmer when it just looks way too much and unnatural. When I wear this blush I dont use a highlighter on my cheeks becaause its just way too much for me, which is kind of nice because then I can skip that step.

Next is a single eye shadow from Cover Girl and its called tapestry toupe. I love doing a nice neautral eye, its pretty much my go to look for everyday beforework,I have a lot of various neautral browns/toupes/ gold for some reason I can never resist buying new ones even when I have a color thats so similar you would hardly notice the difference when its on, oh well at least this one was cheap. Its a really pretty toupe and I can definitley see myself reaching for this quite frequantly especially when I need a quick look before work.

Next is a quad from maybelline and its called Purple Icon. I admitI am asucker for anything that is purple. It is by far my favorite color I almost always have something purple on me weather it be clothes, nail polish or eye shadow. So needless to say when I was looking around at Wal-Mart and seen this I had to pick it up.

Finally I picked up 2 palettes from Wet N Wild, Comfort zone and Blue had me at Hello. Id often seen the display for Wet N Wild but never paid much attention, I figured if it was that cheap it couldn't be very good. Then I started hearing lots of people talking about them on youtube, so I decided to pick them up. Imust say Im very impressed, theres 8 colors in each palette and Id say 6 out of 8 are really good and very pigmented.

New video!

Hey everyone! I finally made my way over to the world of videos on youtube, I only have one up now so its a work in progress, Im hoping to get a haul/review of most of my new purchases up in the near furture with my first one up now, so please check it out and let me know what you think!

A little somethin' new

Hey everyone long time no post! I can now say that Im married!! Which has explained my lack of posting anything, Im going to make a seperate post about the wedding, Im just waiting to get some good pictures back to add in the post. Anyways back to some make up, Ive bought some new elf stuff and nyx from hautelook, Ive got more coming but I figured Id put them in seperate posts, so it wasnt too much all at once. Ill start of with Elf;
I got a brush set (the black brushes, I put some of my other good ones in with it), a blush and bronzer duo, 2 blushes, an eye shadow palette and some mattifying powder and a concealer quad. I must say these are myfirst elf products and I am very pleased. The price is so fantastic that even if some of the products arent the most pigmented or use up quickly it almost dosent even bother me. this whole order I think came to 45 dollars and that wasonly because of the brushes. Here another close up of some products;

Now on to my Nyx products Ive always wanted to try them but then dontship to Canada so when I seen them on Hautelook I had to go for them and get some, the only thing I dont like about Hautelook is there shipping takesnearly 3 weeks,oh well.
what I got was 6 jumbo eye pencils which ive always heard such great things about I cant wait to get to try them all. Also an eye shadow palette, a super skinny liquidliner and a slide on eye liner. I havent gotten to use the Nyx products yet as I just got them today so I just played with a few colorson my hand but they seem to all be pigmented and work very well on the skin.

Thats an end to that for now, I believe I have another big elf order on the way as well as something from Sephora im very excited about so look out for a post on those soon! Thanks for reading.

11 days!

We are now down to 11 days until the wedding! I'm so excited, and finally starting to get a little nervous. I mean Im not nervous at all about being married, I can't wait for that. We've lived together for a year and eight months now, its not like theres going to be a huge change in our everday life. What Im most nervous about is doing everything in front of nearly 100 people! I hate being the centre of attention so Im ggoing to have a hard time that day, Im also dreading our speeches like the plague! Me and public speaking aren't a good mixture, Ryan hates it as much as I do.

Its getting to the point now where we have so many little nit picky things left to do, I have no desire to even do it. Ive been putting off doing our programs now for about a week :/ Im going to have to get going and get them sent to the copy place or we wont have them in time. Also need to get going with our wedding favors, and making sure everything we have gets to the hall on time with nothing breaking or getting lost or misplaced, should be quite the hectic week to come!

slight disappointment...

I loved the first Quo shadow and blush duos I bought so much, so when I was at Shoppers again I had to get some more, I got your a peach. Which is pretty good, I like made you flush much more though. As the nme suggests they are very peachy colors.

I also got another eyeshadow, its called Plums of the world. I must say I was very excited for this one because I love purple eyeshadows so much but I was very disappointed with this one. The pigmentation isnt good at all, it takes loads of coats just to make the color noticable.

While I was there though I also bought some new mascara which came with an eyeliner. The mascara is great, makes my lashes look long and fuller. Ive only used the eyesliner a couple times it seems lke it works good, it looks like a marker and takes a couple coats if you want a really dark black but for a nice day look it is nice.

Lastly I got some Quo eye make up remover while there as well, and then the next day my boscia make up remover came in the mail from Sephora which I forgot I had ordered so Im well stocked up now. They both work well, the boscia is a bit more oily though. I also got Two faced primed and poreless foundation primer. Id heard great things about it and wanted to try it. I do like it quite a lot, I find it helps my foundation last a bit longer and feel smoother.

New make up!

Well  I couldnt resist, I was in a make up sort of mood so I took a few pictures of my newest make up purchases and I figured I would post them and talk about the products.

this i my oldest newest purchase, the Urban Decay 15th anniversary pallette, it is gorgeous! Its such a great everyday pallette, its mostly what I use in the mornings when I dont have a lot of time before work, wuick and simple and looks great.

This I got last week, from left to right; MAC mythical eyeshadow,a red coppery color. Seaside, a cream color base which I havent used much yet. Smashbox charm eyeshadow quad, great purple colors which work well with hazel and brown eyes. MAC satin toupe eyeshadow, which is great everyday color, its like a brown/purple toupey color, MAC dipped down fluid line which is a brown eyeliner. Lastly in the front is MAC street cool shade pencil. If you out it in your lid underneath satin toupe it looks great together.

Lastly I bought these today, first is an all over face duo by Quo and it is called Made you flush and second is and eye shadow duo by Quo called Beauty & Bronze. I havent had a chance to wear either of these but they are such pretty colors, and they look like theyy'll ork very well for everyday wear especially for the fall. not to mention, I really like the packaging, its super cute!

Hey there!

So, this is officially my first ever blog, which is exciting and scary all at the same time. I didnt create this for any one spacific reason. I love reading other people blogs, and even if no one ever reads mine it will be a good way to express myself and get things off my chest. There isnt any one certain topic ill be discussing here, just random things that I enjoy and are happening in my life. As it said in my about me section, I am getting married in just over a month which is crazy! It is so hard to believe that nearly a year has passed since Ryan propsed, between planning a wedding and buying our fist place, it has been a pretty stressful and exciting year! Another big thing that I will probably talk about on here is make-up and beauty products, I watch countless amounts of vidoes on youtube about make-up/beauty/fashion and I just love it, I have a fairly extensize collection and I generally dont go longer then a week or so without buying something new, so I will surely update you all on here as I buy new things and will share my opinion, I would love to make videos on youtube too but I dont know, I think Im still too shy for that. I also love photography, Im not very good so I hope to get more practice with that soon and become better with it. I also have a huge book collection, it saddens me I havent had the time to read as much anymore, hopefully when things settle down more I can though. Also lately I am completely addicted to The Vampire Diaries, super excited for season 3 to start this thursday! So thats pretty wekk an overview of what sort of topics to expect from this blog, and hopefully you all will enjoy it!
