Buxom by Bare Escentuals Waterproof Smoky Eye Stick

I must admit that I have never really worn anything from Bare Escentuals, but when I came across the Buxom brand I was intrigued. I was already a fan of MAC shadesticks, so the smoky eye sticks caught my attention. I was particularly struck by the matte grey color. I don't have any matte grey base colors so I wanted to give this one a try.

Getting Ready for IMATS

My friend Princess Zmunda asked me to create a post for first time attendee's of the IMATS show. I have never been to IMATS. I have been to The Makeup Show for the last three years and plan to go again this year. So I am only assuming they are similar, although I have heard that IMATS has more exhibitors and shows than The Makeup Show. So, I will be posting information based on my experience of the shows.

Sleek Makeup Palette Review with Swatches Part 1

I bought these palettes in November of last year when Sleek Makeup had a 50% off sale. I was able to buy 6 eyeshadow palettes, a contour kit, and two nail polishes all for $40! Can you believe that? Sleek has some really great products and $5 for twelve colors is simply a steal! So even if I had to get up at the crack of dawn to get online and then receive my colors a month later, it was still worth it. They did give me free shipping for the hassle as well.

Color Comparisons: Orange Blushes

Orange blushes are my absolute favorite! I will be posting these color comparisons periodically to show you how certain colors in the same family compare to one another. Sometimes they will be all blush or all eyeshdadow, sometimes they will be a mixture of products that are all in the same color family. The posts may also consist of products that serve the same purpose. Let me know what you all think about this idea. Do you think this is helpful?

More Photo Shoot Pictures

I did another photo shoot. Here are a couple of the finished pictures from the shoot. This was Madeleine's first time shooting! She was a real natural. On a side note, I am finally trying to get over this bronchitis. I am so sick of coughing...ugh!

Hakuhodo Brushes

My Hakuhodo brushes came today...yay!!! After seeing these brushes at the New York Makeup Show in 2008, I was curious. Now, there are tons of great reviews out there, so I thought it was high time I made a purchase. Of course, this won't be a review(that will come later)since I just received them, but I can tell you my initial thoughts.

Inglot Cosmetics Online

Inglot has just gone viral! I don't see a Pro program just yet, so I may still have to call in my order. It also looks like the palettes may be a bit more expensive. When you order the colors along with the palettes online they do discount the palette automatically. I do like that you can purchase the palettes or colors individually. When you order from the store you had to order the palette's with the eye shadows. I'm sure they may have some more tweaking to do. Here's the link:

La Femme Blush Review with Swatches

I am trying to shake this sickness and thought I could at least post a review. A friend of mine went to the  L.A. Makeup Show and was kind enough to take my shopping list with her. I have been wanting to try La Femme blushes for years, but for whatever reason never got around to buying any. Well, let me tell you I waited way too long! The pigmentation on these blushes is insane!

Remember when I posted the behind the scene pictures of my photo shoot here(scroll to the bottom of the post)? Well, here are a couple of real pictures from the shoot. The phenomenal photographer is Krystal Nicole. I hope you like them!  I am battling some sort of bronchitis and am trying to get better. I should be back to posting soon.

Oh, the elusive Pink Friday lipstick from MAC! I swear when this lipstick was going on sale I had anxiety trying to get it. I know that I have several lipsticks that are similar in color, but I have a little problem...lol!
Whenever a product is hard to get it makes me want it even more! I must get help for this situation! Anyway, here is Pink Friday lipstick and some colors that I have that are similar.
