Wet N Wild Lust FOTD

Here’s a look I did the other day using my new Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palette in Lust. Hope you enjoy! xoxo

I used the top four colors in the WnW palette. To recreate this look with MAC, I would use Yogurt on the lid, Fig 1 in the crease, Knight Divine in the outer V, and Vanilla to highlight.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes, my new love

I gave into the hype and bought a couple Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palettes the other day from Rite Aid. Yes, the same brand that makes 99 cent nail polish that you loved in your teens. The first words out of my mouth when I swatched my WnW Lust palette were “Holy S*&$!” I didn’t expect them to be so smooth and buttery with a high color payoff! These definitely remind me of the same quality as Dior but with cheap packaging. The colors in the WnW Lust palette are also dupes of MAC Eyeshadows such as Shadowy Lady, Yogurt, Beauty Marked, Fig 1, and Knight Divine.


Colors in the left column are matte, and the right column is shimmer. I found it to be a light shimmer, not too chunky.

These shadows blended out very well on the eye, as well. I’ll post a FOTD using these colors this week.

If you’re looking for budget eyeshadows, look no further, give these a try!

Disclosure- product featured was bought by yours truly.

Friday Favorites

TGIF baby. I feel like it’s been a pretty short week but that’s because of my travel. Yay home! This weekend isn’t going to be too epic but I love myself a lazy weekend. BTW I’m thinking of moving my blog over to Blogger. Yay? Nay?

Let’s get these Friday Favorites started!

Brows are so important. They can make or break a makeup look. Kandee Johnson posted this awesome video about keeping your brows tamed.

Fellow blogger friend Laura (Emerald Green 88) posted this excellent tutorial on depoting MAC eyeshadows and blushes. Click here for the full tutorial.

Ever wonder where cursors come from?

Get your faux tan on!

You’ve all heard it, tanning is bad for you. Nowadays I enjoy a subtle glow with the help of self tanners, but I kind of have to since I’m locked up in an office all day long. Stupid career getting in the way of me going to the beach.

Choosing the right self tanner can be quite a hassle. Too much DHA in the product can make you Orange County orange.  The ones I feature below are some of the highest rated tanners on the web. They contain lower amounts of DHA and/or contain color correcting agents to counteract the orange. Rest assured you wont be looking like an oompa loompa anytime soon.

 
Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel– Good for face and body, you can expect full results in 2 hours.

 
Dior Bronze Self-Tanner Shimmering Glow Body– This is Lauren Conrad’s goto self tanner. Described by her to give her the most real tan around. It also smells really good! Full results in an hour.


St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Lotion– Contains color correctors, aloe, and fragrance technology to eliminate the tell-tale self-tan aroma by 70%.

 
L’Oreal Sunless Sublime Glow Daily Moisturizer– A budget alternative to most tanners. L’Oreal offers a gradual tan while moisturizing.

What’s your favorite self tanner?

Loving Yellow

I’d been obsessing lately about yellow shoes. I’d seen many a cute pair but nothing said “buy me” until I came across these babies. Mmm yellow goodness. I’m really loving the bows and the kitten heel.


Me Too “Payton” $89 is available at Zappos

In other news, I’m back from my vacation to Ohio. I went out there for a few days to visit family since I hadn’t been there in years (I’m a bad relative). There was nothing really planned but we ended up at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame one day. One thing I hate about vacations is eating out every single meal. I’m so happy to be home to my hubby who made me a great home cooked dinner the first night back 🙂 Oh and I didn’t get the tan I wanted, darn…

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday my lovelies! I’m out of town in the tropics of Ohio. I’ll be back soon! Until then I hope you enjoy my Friday Favorites!

Pixiwoo is another favorite youtuber of mine. She just published a summer makeup tutorial on her site. I find it very useful!

Nom… these totally remind me of my honeymoon in Paris. If you haven’t tried a French macaroon, you’re missing out. You can order them from Sucre online.

Just some pictures from lolcats that make me laugh every time.
