Want some Dior?
So last night, I was going through some cosmetics sites and signing up for their newsletters and emails. I came across Dior Beauty and was perusing the site just a little bit and signed up. I haven't bought anything from Dior just because it's more than my budget can allow me, though they do have some eye pleasing products. The only item that I've ever sampled was the Dior Mascara, and I think one day possibly i'll get one, but I'm still working on that. We'll one thing I came across the Dior site, wasn't the cosmetics itself, but the Dior Diva VIP Rewards Program. If you are an avid Dior Beauty Cosmetics buyer, I think you'll love this Rewards Program. Basically it's a rewards program like every other rewards program out there, just that the reward is Dior cosmetics. Per the site, for every $1 you spend on Dior cosmetics, you get one point. The more points you collect, the closer you get to redeeming them for some Dior samples and full size products. Though the products may vary at each points level, according to their description on the site of what you can get, is pretty nice. All you have to do is collect your reciepts and when you are ready to reedem, just send them in to Dior and they will send you your reward. The rewards starts off at 100 points, and you receive like Dior travel size best products in a small Dior pouch. Then the points go on from there to like 1000. I imagine that since most of Dior cosmetics are pretty pricey, you can acheive those points very fast and receive your rewards in no time. The most you would have to spend to get the highest level of the rewards would be about $1000. That's way over my budget for right now, maybe over like 5 years, I'll get there, but overall, the rewards are pretty good, and consider the quality of Dior, is pretty solid. So any you Dior addicts or wannabe's (me of course lol), get in on the program and get your rewards. Hey it's like getting something extra for spending right? I hope so! Or, you could just send your receipt right to my mailbox, and I can redeem them, just kidding..! More details at Dior

Dior 5-color shadow- $54

Another Barbie Collection!! I'm was super excited!. Thinking back to MAC Cosmetics Barbie Collection, I thought there weren't going to be another Barbie makeup collection out for a long while, who's gonna beat MAC right? Well, here comes Stila Cosmetics with their own Barbie Collection which is helping with Barbie's 50th anniversary. I like how in the collection included 4 different looks from different era's and complemented most skin tones. According to the website, when you click buy now, it leads you to Sephora, where you can purchase the makeup set. I am quite sure that this will be a coveted collectors item for many out there. For $40 bucks, each collection isn't that bad! Products: All Collectors Set are $40 each. All can be purchased at the site. All comes with 1 eye palette, one lip product, and one eye product in a Barbie Can. There is also another palette (no pics) the "Barbie Loves Stila Talking Palette" which comes in a 4 color quad. 1959 #1 PONYTAIL DOLL STRIKING & GLAMOROUS The original Barbie® doll wore the famous black and white striped bathing suit. Striking red lips and black-rimmed cat eyes made this doll the epitome of 1950s glamour! 1971 MALIBU DOLL FRESH & SUN-KISSED Malibu Barbie® doll debuted in an aqua bathing suit, groovy sunglasses, and an L.A. tan! A sunny beach look featuring aqua shadow and pink lips made this doll the epitome of 1970s fresh, natural beauty! 1980 FOXY DOLL BOLD & STUNNING Foxy Barbie® doll made the scene in a hot red outfit with golden accents and big earrings.

A hip, sparkly look featuring blue shadow, shimmery pink lips, and faux gems made this doll the epitome of pretty in the new millennium! Doesn't the cute canister look awesome? I love how they have everything in each collection, Eyeshadow, Lip, and Eyes. So if anyone missed out on MAC Cosmetics Barbie Collection, you still have this Stila Collection to look forward to. I think this one is just as good as the MAC collection!!! I'll try to make my way to Sephora to get some swatches soon! byebye

Aqua Eyes -Silver- Eye liner Review:

I've had this product for awhile now, but haven't gotten around to review it. This is also my first actual MakeUpForever Product that I own. Here's what Sephora says: Aqua Eyes

What it is: A two-in-one eyeshadow and liner pencil. What it does: These waterproof eyeshadow and eye liner pencils contain a unique formula that adheres to the eyelids and resists water even under the most extreme conditions, without running or fading.

I've seen and heard many reviews on MUFE (makeupforever) products, that their products are very pigmented, long lasting, and very professional, especially their aqua eyes liners. My time spent at Sephora every time I went was partially in front of the MUFE stand swatching the eyeliners but walking out empty handed without them. It may have been due to it's price cause I just couldn't justify spending that much on an eyeliner. However, I received a MUFE eyeliner in swap awhile back and I've been super happy with it. Aqua Eye liner in Silver 8L (metallic silver) Pros: ~ Very smooth application. NO tugging what so ever on my lids and even when I swatch it. ~ Long lasting. At the end of the night I still see the silver liner there, very comparable to gel liners. ~ Bright and very pigmented. ~ Good for oily eyelids like mines. ~ Come in variety of colors ~ Waterproof. Test it, you'll see it works. Cons: ~ There aren't many cons that I can think of. So far it works for me ~ Price. I almost couldn't justify buying it for that price. $16 for one Overall: I would love to buy more, but currently I am still saving up to get them. I have gone and swatched regular colors like black and brown and they are still good. I have super oily lids, and currently I use MAC fluidlines, maybe I could switch over to MUFE liners, to cut the time of applying liner in half rite? lol. When I do take into consideration on how good the product is, price doesn't really matter, so this is a must have in everyone's collection!!. I might just have to get those holiday sets before they are gone forever... Get them @: Sephora Stores and Retails: $16 each.


**If you didn't get the Holiday Aqua Eyes gift set from MAKEUPFORVER for Christmas (for example ME!!), lo and behold, Sephora still has them up on their site, but for limited of time only. As the holidays are over, Sephora may only have a limited stock and will run out soon. So hurry and them.**

bye bye!!
