There’s a party!… on my nails. lol. I did all my work today, so I rewarded myself by doing this. It has been a long time since I hadn’t done my nails. Too long. Here’s what I used:
Pure Ice - hot pink
NYC Minute Quick Dry Color in High Line Green and Lexington Yellow
And for the glitter, it’s Jordana, Glitters in gemstones
Yup that’s me, and I’m sure many of you out there are also in love with all these cosmetics that you simply cannot get a hold of or just can’t afford at the time. Today, I found this awesome website that lets you find the dupe of your favorite high-end product. Not only that, but it tells the % of similiarity the dupe is to the original. Pretty handy tool if you ask me. So next time, you don’t want to overspend or just don’t have a Sephora nearby, check out this site and recreate your looks using more affordable products. You may even have money left over to buy an outfit with that new look of yours ;). Hope you all enjoy!

Got my February Glam bag!!! I’m so excited to try these products out. Last month’s bag was pretty rockin’ too, but it didn’t quite live up to my cosmetic wants. lol. This one, however, is really great. I got:
- Ipsy Lash Cards
- Pixi Flawless and Poreless Face Primer
- Pop Beauty Mascara in Smoky Black
- Coastal Scents Eye Shadow Sample Set in Glitz & Glamour
- Mica Beauty Cosmetics Gel Liner in Black
Out of all the products, I gotta say the gel liner is one that I’m really looking forward to using. It has really good quality glass packaging, and seems like it will definitely make the product last longer. I wonder how it compares to the Wet n Wild gel liner…
Well guys, I’m going to test these bad boys out and possibly do a review on these products soon. :)
This is what I came up with when experimenting with my E.L.F. Studio 100 palette after watching a tutorial by Marlena founder of Make-up Geek Cosmetics (How to pair eye shadow colors like a pro). Anyways I really like the pigmentation of the E.L.F. shadows for this look. A-mazing. :)
My Monday makeup look using affordable drugstore products.
Eyes and Brows:
E.L.F. Studio 100 palette

Loreal True Match in N4
E.L.F. Blush and Bronzer in St. Lucia
Everyday minerals foundation in Medium Beige (the semi-matte formula) to set the foundation
EOS Lip Balm
Really loving this nail color from Nailtini in Frappe. It’s a nude with a little bit of a pink undertone.
Thank u Ipsy : )
I had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Years with the family. I didn’t party or anything like that, I spent those day hanging out with some of the most important people in my life, which was great. <3
I did get some make-up for Christmas though! I got the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette, and the Bobbi Brown Uber Nude Lip and Eye Palette (a super small travel sized palette great for creating those natural looks on the go).
I need to get better at updating my blog…. it gets hard especially since I don’t have internet at my house. :/ I shall find a way.
