Red lips will never go out of style — they’re timeless and classic. They’re isn’t anyone who can’t wear red. It’s all about finding the right shade. Red lips instantly make me feel sexy, no matter how bad my day may be going. I feel fierce and fearless and grrr, very grrr ;) . Today I decided to showcase a pretty red for you from the Rouge Coco line by Chanel. This lipstick is called Gabrielle ($30) and boy is she special…

Urban Decay is the poo, but they already know that ;) I recently purchased all of their loose pigment eye shimmers ($20 each) from Hautelook (on sale for $5 each) and it’s my cosmetic obligation to share with you how beautiful they are. I’m gonna try very hard not to ramble about these, but I need you to understand how awesome these pigments are. The packaging allows you to get just the right amount of product out of the tube, and they’re nowhere near as messy as *whispers*…psst…MAC pigments (OMG!! Don’t worry MAC, I still “Stan” for your delicious pigments, I promise!). Some of you may not like the packaging, I actually do. I love the packaging of the MAC pigments as well, but there’s always that fear of knocking the whole thing over and ultimately spilling a super rare shade you can’t find anywhere else…

I’ve been meaning to take a gander at the new MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Creams ($22 – 6g) for a while now, and finally got around to it. Boy, am I glad I did! They look like juicy pieces of candy melted down into a creamy, smooth, vibrant sip of cosmetic juice. Yea, seriously. I picked up five for now, but I’m definitely going back for more. When I checked my tracking number on UPS, I squealed with excitement knowing my gorgeous brown box was at home waiting for me :D Check it out…

It’s a gross yet beautiful rainy Saturday. Gross if you have to be in the rain — beautiful if you don’t! I’m in the house cleaning, working, and trying to fight thru this fog of sleepiness that’s smothering me like gravy on biscuits. I am so exhausted, for no apparent reason. Maybe it’s the rain, maybe it’s the 5 hours of sleep I’m running on — who knows. Anyhoo, I wanted to show you guys what these uber-awesome Kat Von D palettes look like because they’re absolute love. The fact you get eight highly-pigmented shadows for $34 in one artsy-fartsy palette is nothing short of amazing.

Talk about long overdue! I know I’m later than FEMA posting this, but there are several reasons I waited so long. I’ll spare you those, and just get down to business. As most of you know, MAC released a much anticipated Summer collection called To the Beach around two weeks ago — full of typical summery shades. Beautiful bronze colors, electric greens, cool corals, etc. One of the most coveted items from the collection literally sold out within three hours…and left a lot of people high and dry.

If you own a NARS blush ($26), you would probably agree that they are truly something special. NARS is responsible for making some of the most beautiful and coveted blushes in the makeup game, giving their competitors a run for their money. While I think NARS is an exceptional cosmetic brand overall, its their blushes that excel at cosmetic excellence! Whether you find a shade that works for you or not, they’re all beautiful in their own right.
