Sorry for the delay, got a new job...so i've been super busy!! Here's a two lipsticks that I got awhile back at MAC. I usually don't wear lipstick, but thought I 'll give it a try, and venture into something that I never use. Until this purchase, I only had 1 MAC lipstick, and that was the lipstick 1N from the N collection. I have other lipsticks but nothing special. So the two lipstick I got were Ladybug and High Tea. I thought I try and be bold and get a red and get a nude lipstick, since I like nudes. Both are lustre finishes, so it might take a few swipes to get a bold color, but I like soft, and too striking colors anyways. Here I am wearing High Tea. Here I am wear Ladybug: You like? I'm still learning how to wear lipstick. I can so put it on others, but not on me. I also have to get use to wearing while I'm eating and drinking water. I guess I'll have to go do some research and find some tips for you ladies out there like me! laters!

URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide ON LiP Pencils
Here's what they say: "Just like our 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, our Lip Pencils are guaranteed to last, and also contain Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, and Cottonseed Oil to nourish the skin and improve the smoothness of application. Go ahead and have another sip of your cocktail—our formula is waterproof, but never feels dry or cakey. It’s the perfect complement to Urban Decay Lipsticks, Stains, and Glosses." There is also what they call "Ozone" . A white pencil, clear, that helps keep gloss inside not outside..helps "feather" the lip outer line. I'm not much of a lip person, so I don't own to many lip liners, lipsticks, and lipglosses, so it might take me awhile before I get one, but if they are anything like the 24/7 eye pencils, maybe I'll just might give it a try. retail: $16.00 comes in 5 berrylicious colors and 1 Ozone pencil

RIP !!!! URBAN DECAY PRIMER POTION !!!!(*Not Really) This is what happened!! So after a few months of really getting nothing on my primer potion brush when pulled out, I decided to cut it open. I was really debating if I could do it or not, that is probably why I haven't tried it out yet. Also, the packaging was soo pretty, I couldn't bare the thought of cutting it open..hehe, But I guess today was the lucky day for the primer potion, or not!! lol Once I finally cut that primer potion opened, to much surprise and not, there was still a whole bunch left inside, like I actually filled 2 whole 5 gram jars full of the stuff. The only thing I worried about the primer in jars is that I am not sure how long it will last in the jars before going bad. I usually use a brush when dipping into a pot, so didn't really matter to me. I am super glad, that I don't have to go buy another one for a long while, which I was considering doing soon. I recorded the process in pictures and what items I used to cut the primer potion opened. Here's what I used: Exact o knife (really didn't work for me), Huge Knife (this did the trick), and a 1 (or 2) 5 gram jar. 1. Basically keep cutting around the large part of the primer potion, that part will have the most product. Make sure you take out the wand so that you won't cut it in the process. 2. Here is how it looks like when opened! SEE all that product still left in there!! when it seemed like nothing was left!! UD are you trying to fool me here!! lol 3. Using my wand, I scoop out each side of the pieces that were cut, and put them in the jar. 4. And this is just one side of the primer!!!! 5. Both side taken (not even including the end tip of the primer potion in which I did not cut open, and assuming that there is still more there) put into one jar, which didn't fit, so I had to put the extra in another jar. There you have it!! SUCH an EASY way to save your $16 for next time. Also, Please take caution when using the knife to open the primer. Always place your hands far from the sharp edge and watch what you are doing. This tutorial picture is just one way that I did it, please find a safer way if possible. Laters!! and always stay beautiful!!!

Want this to happen? Running Mascara? Tarantula Eyes? NOPE!! Here's a few Mascara tips that could help you out: 1. In order to avoid have clumped mascara on your lashes, or dried globs, apply mascara to the base of lases, when pulling out, wiggle the wand just a little, to separate the lashes. 2. Never Blink!!! when putting mascara on. If you do, you'll definitely get some mascara on your eyelids, not your lashes. 3. Second Coat? Always do it before the first coat of mascara is dried. If you wait too long, the first coat becomes dried, which makes the second coat harder to put on and dry.

Okay, I'll have to admit it, but I've been super busy these past few days, all because of HIM..! Isn't He Cute!!! Not Really, but I do love watching him swim though. I've been catching up on the Olympics everyday, since I have time on my hands, and been rooting for the USA teams. I was super disappointed in the gymnastics, as I was rooting for both USA teams, but happy that at least they metaled. I'll be watching the girls tonight, and hoping that Shawn or Natsia will win the all around. *crossfingers* More makeup stuff coming soon!! OFF to the TEvLEvIOn~!

Beauty Tips of the Week: Here's just a few tips that may help you fix it, do it, and keep it!!! Puffy Eyes: Whenever those puffy eyes come out, no fear. All you have to do is take a metal spoon and leave it in the fridge or freezer / or run it in cold water, once it's cool, take it and place it over the puffy area for at least 60 seconds, to ease the puffiness away. Unruly Eyebrows: Got an extra new toothbrush laying around? Don't throw it away!! To tame those unruly and stray eyebrow hairs, take a new toothbrush, and use to comb your eyebrows. Hince the toothbrush has wide and more bristles compared to the average beauty eyebrow comb. Smudged Eyeliner: You forget and ended up rubbing your eyes, to find out you just smudged your eyeliner. Water can't wipe it off? Having carmex, lip balm, chapstick, or vaseline in your purse can help. Take just a little bit with a napkin or tissue paper, and wipe the excess liner away and viola, it's totally gone. Vaseline works wonders!!! Come back next week for more beauty tips from simply beautiful!!

Colour Forms Collection- July 18 Nordstrom Exclusive!! Yes, I know July 18 was ahile back, but I want to post up swatches of the pigments that I bought from that collection. This was a Nordstrom Exclusive, so I woke up bright and early to get them, since my Nordstrom only had like 6 of each color, and plus that day, they were having their annual sale. 4 of the 6 pigments were new colors, the other 2 were repromotes. I only bought the new colors since I already had the 2 repromotes which were Jardin Aires and Steel Blue. The colors that I got were Tea Time Royal Flush Circa Plum Gilded Green To me, Gilded Green and Royal Flush could be dupable with other Mac pigments. Say Royal Flush can be compared to Accent Red or Ruby Red. Gilded Green is almost the same as Golden Olive or Golder's Green. All together though, I love the colors and about time MAC made some more colors that weren't repromotes from other collections or the permanent line. So be sure to check them out, since they are only available at Nordstrom and will be gone very soon!! Here are the swatches: (L applied dry, R applied with UDPP) Tea Time, Royal Flush, Steel Blue, Circa Plum, Gilded Green, Jardin Aires Flash: W/O Flash: I love the colors and how they are super bright with the UDPP. I have yet to try them with MAC PaintPots, so we will see how bright they are with them.
