December Haul / My Christmas Gift

After all the Christmas Shopping I squeezed a little shopping in for myself.

Mac Seductive Intent Semi- Matte Lipstick- This is a beautiful fushia purple with a great finish that isn't too gloss nor is it super dry matte finish.

Mac Passionately Tempted Blush- Nice purple/fushia blush with not much shimmer

Ben Nye Banana Powder- EVERYBODY swears by this setting powder. I tried it and i will say that after setting my concealer with this powder it didn't crease or look cakeY. Everyone was right!

Mac Currant Lip Pencil- Dark vampy berry pencil. This pencil paired with MACs Rebel and Ruby Woo looks soooo good. It can create an Ombre-ish lip.

Naked Basics- I didn't swatch this because i feel that this product is a love/hate buy/dont buy type of product. Obviously Foxy and WOS are too light and ashy for deep skin tones like myself. I really like this palette because Crave was a nice deep dark brown black. I kind of got mad at myself a few days after getting this because i should of purchased the Lorac Pro Palette or Smashbox Master Class Palette.

What did you buy for yourself????

(All of the products featured in this post has been purchased by me)

December Ipsy Bag

December Haute Holiday Glam Bag
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner (Zero)- This liner is glides on really smooth and great color payoff.
Urban Decay Naked Skin BB- Really Smooth light weight BB Cream Has a slight tint of color to it.
Mai Couture Highlighting papers- ughh i could live without these papers
Mirabella Face or Eye Primer- I have yet to try this product yet.
Be a Bombshell Lip Gloss(Hot Mess)- This looks better over a lipstick in my opinion.

I was suppose to get a NYX Loose pearl shadow I contacted Ipsy and now waiting to see if any action takes place.


DIY: Gold Spiked Sweater

I scooped up this mula green sweater from Goodwill for 50% off (came up to $3). I thought it was cute but simple. So I decided to spice it up and put some gold spikes on the shoulders of the sweater. I purchased the gold spikes from Ebay. It was easy to add the spikes to a sweater because you just push the screw between the hole of the knitting and twist on the spike on.
Finally I get a day off from work and I have some errands to run for the holidays and what to do you know it rains today :( I still tried to get a photo op with my spiked out sweater. (Please no judgement on photo quality today)

rain rain go away :(

Ipsy November Glam Bag Review

A little late with this post but here I go... I blogged last month about my October Ipsy Bag well this November Party Perfect Bag was much better than last month.

Inside the bag included:
Meet Matte Eye Shadow
Starlet Black Eyeliner
Bare Minerals Dare Devil Gloss
Chella Defining Brow Gel
Nailtini Nail Lacquer

I really loved the November bag because getting more matte eyeshadows are on my To-Do list. The Bare Minerals Gloss is great has a hint of color and not super sticky looks great paired on top of a lipstick. The eyeliner and Brow Gel are alright nothing to jump over and do a back flip about. I am so in love with the October bag Bombshell felt tip liquid eyeliner! If you have not already signed up for a Ipsy bag do it now! $10 a month cant beat.

The Makeup Show Orlando 2012

Sunday I attended The Makeup Show Orlando. The show was filled with many makeup artist and beauty professionals (and some none of the above). I have read many blogs and watched many Youtube videos about Makeup Shows in NY and LA so to hear the show was coming to the South East region I was excited. 

I went to the show with my coworker. We arrived to the show and started to browse by each vendors booth. The Makeup Forever and Crown Brush Booth was PACKED the entire day. We also made it to a keynote by Johnny Lavoy The Transformation of Makeup. 
Overall my advice to a Makeup Show Virgin i would say 
-Have a budget
-Make a list of all the items you really need/want from the show
-Sign Up for PRO discounts with the many vendors
-Get some knowledge from Keynotes and Seminars 
- Have FUN :)

Check out my photos below (excuse my iPhone photography silly me I left my camera in the car).
