NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Tokyo

I bought this from Ulta because their NYX sale was buy 2 get 1 free, and I thought I'd give it a try.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
"It's not a lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've ever experience before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte."
(That is what the tube says)

The bottom reads: SMLC03 Tokyo



The product did go on very smooth and it has a light scent. This was my first ever NYX lip product and I will say I recommend it. I will be purchasing other colors.

Have you ever tried a NYX lip product? If so list it in the comments!

Sally Beauty Supply & Wal-Mart Haul

So I picked up a few too many things (I do this a lot) I was only going to Wal-mart for a paper shredder, and Sally's happened to be next door, not my fault!

Oh yes, I thought it was about time you met one of my five cats! This is Gus, the biggest pain in my ass :) This was what I purchased at Sally's!

*HEMP Bronzing Moisturizer (will be doing a before and after blog post on this one!)
*Ultimate Pumi Bar (for my feet!)
*Heel to Toe Foot Repair lotion
*Beyond Belief Intensive Repair serum (Face & neck)
*Beyond Belief Pore Refining Clay Mask
*Correctionist Lip Line Correcting Treatment
*And some black sunglasses with rhinestones

My Wal-Mart Purchases:

*Hard Candy Glossoholic in Lush
*Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Strawberry
*Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula for Stretch Marks
*Hard Candy Sheer Envy Skin Perfecting Primer

Well reviews and swatches will be done at some point! I have so many things I want to blog!
Thanks to my followers!

Twitter me! I love Twitter!
(Where I rant and rave about fitness, people and well myself!)



Sinful Colors=HOT PINK Toes!

Now normally I go to the salon and get a pedicure but money is a tad bit tight right now so I decided to paint them myself last night!

I used the Sinful Colors Professional #920 (It doesn't have a name on the bottle?) But It's a hot pink! Totally perfect for warm weather! I love wearing neon colors in the summer!

And that is my favorite base coat next to it!

I am on the hunt for a neon blue, got any brands to let me know about?


L'oreal Sublime Mouse Review!

So I totally dyed my hair yesterday and it came out just as I wanted it to! I only dye my hair like every 4-5 months, it's a pain really and I just can't pay $60+ to get it done professionally. Sometimes I do get the "real" stuff from Sally Beauty Supply, but yes....

This is what I used:
#30 Pure Darkest Brown

The kit comes with plastic gloves, the dye, instructions and a deep conditioner!

This is the first time I ever tried a mousse hair dye and I must say it was rather nice!
Application: Easy enough, just pump out the product on your gloved hands and distribute. Just like you would normally do BUT no dripping residue and it doesn't tangle your hair!

In the instructions it says to massage the mousse into your hair, which worried me because did I really want to be combing my hair for days? lol Well like I said, I had no issues with that! It was very easy to distribute.

Another thing I LOVED about it was that for some reason the mousse held your hair in place on the top of your hair, I mean, my hair is about an inch below my shoulders and it is thin, but I normally have to use a clip to hold it up there for the 30mins it calls for.

Now my only thing I did not like was the pump. I know it's the main part of the whole mousse thing. But gloves with dye on them trying to push down on a slippery plastic pump, yeah I missed a few times. I mean obviously there are ways around it, but I didn't find it convenient!

All in all I give it 4.5 STARS!

88 Eye Shadow Matte Palette

I don't know about you, but I have 3 - "88" Palettes, the matte, shimmer and natural palettes. I use them ALL THE TIME! But I purchased mine through Coastal Scents and paid about $28 (includes shipping) for each palette!

I just found an Ebay seller who has the 88 Matte Eye Shadow Palette for $14.99 FREE SHIPPING! It is a great offer and if I didn't already have it, I'd buy it!

If you don't know what I am talking about, here is a photo!

To purchase for $14.99 visit this seller - - onlysavingshere

They also have the other palettes cheaper as well!



Hair Care Haul & More!

After my nice long walk/jog at the park I stopped at my local CVS to pick up some hair color and ended up with a few other things....

Aveeno "Living Color" Shampoo and Conditioner for Fine Hair
Aveeno "Living Color" Shine Glaze
Pantene "Beautiful Lengths" Smoothing Balm
L'Oreal Sublime Mousse in #30 Pure Darkest Brown
Milani Liquif'eye Eyeliner Pencil in Black 01

I will have a blog post dedicated to my hair coloring experience.
 I have never tried a "mousse" dye before.

I have also never tried the Aveeno hair care line, so I shall let you know how that is! The Pantene "Beautiful Lengths" collection has by far been my favorite. I can honestly say it helped my hair stay stronger, and in fact my hair did get longer (before I cut it!)

I bought the Milani eye pencil because of a Youtube video by Vintage or Tacky!

Well blog to you all later! Thanks so much for following!
I do have a personal blog - ->

MAC Glitter

So as I mentioned in my other post, I really don't care about real packaging! I love just having the product. Now I must mention, this has gotten me in trouble on Ebay when the MAC Hello Kitty collection came out, I ended up buying some fake lip gloss. Woops!

But I found a seller (unforgettableitems) that sells MAC Glitter pigments by the single product or you can request 1/4th of each color. I paid around $14.00 for all 13 glitter colors! Plus, even if they aren't true MAC, they are still fun!!!!

Here is his photo for his listing

Here is what I received
Top Row: Neon 60's, Crystalled Lime, Red*
2nd Row: Gun Metal, Royal Blue, Chartruse, Turquoise, Copper
3rd Row: Light Green, Crystalled Orange, Silver*, Jam Session, Light Blue
(*Discontinued chunky glitters)

Complete list of MAC Glitters and Pigments HERE!

I normally use MAC's Fix + to adhere the glitters to my eyes. I now have like every color of the rainbow to make just about any look. ha ha

Hope you enjoyed! xo xo

Hello my Vixxens. Hope you are having a glorious weekend. Mine always goes by too fast. I found an amazing website that I will be ordering from today!!!

It is called All Cosmetics Wholesale! Click HERE to visit! It has all brand name cosmetics at amazing prices!! MAC, URBAN DECAY, name it I saw it! In the MAC section under pigments you can just get samples of their pigments for $3.99. I'm not one of those people that NEED the big thing of eyeshadow. I have so many, it's more likely it'll get wasted. I love when I find samples!

I also found the Sugarpill Cold Heart palette that they recently discontinued!!
 For that click HERE!

After I order, I shall do a review on the products I received and how the service/shipping was! If you order before me! Leave a comment for some feedback!!

Post later! xoxo

Glossvine Anyone?

I recently discovered a page on Facebook for a company called Glossvine. You can find them here..
They sell brand name cosmetics at a lower cost and have some fantastic deals. US world wide shipping is only $3.95!

I just received my order in the mail, which in total I paid $39.95 (includes shipping)! Here is what I bought....

Lipgloss: Neutrogena MoistureShine gloss in Nutri Berry
Now this one was on clearance when I bought it, $1.95!

The four big containers are FaceFront "Paint Me Perfect" Mineral Shadows
The small one is LucyLauren in Beckah

I think I need to stop using, every time I do, my photos change direction and I can't change it back. Grr. I am sorry.

I swatched the shadows on top of E.L.F Eyelid Primer.
I do love FaceFront cosmetics, and it was even nicer to find them at a bargain price. $7.79 a piece!

Customer service for GLOSSVINE was exceptional and I will do business with them again. I love the fact that they accept Paypal. haha!

AM Facial Care Routine!

We all want clear beautiful skin, but sometimes we need to take steps to achieve that "perfect" skin. Unfortunately, not all products work for everyone, but you can get some ideas on what may work for you! Now I don't have perfect skin, I still suffer from a blemish or two during that wonderful time of the month (sarcasm!). But I have found some wonderful products to share.

I should mention that my skin is normal with some oily spots on my cheeks and chin.

Face wash: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild

I love the fact that this product is a gel-like substance. You need a very minimal amount and it works up a good lather. It also doesn't leave my skin feeling dried out. Price $16.00. The product lasts me about two months. Available at or Macy's.

Scrub: Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream

I recently discovered this product when Macy's was having a promotion for Clinique. I got it for free and now I love it! I only use it twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays. It is mild enough to use every day, but I don't feel I need to. Full size product is $18.50.

Astringent: Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion

I'm not quite sure why it is called lotion because it's not. haha. I use this on face as soon as it dries with a cotton swab. This product leaves my skin feeling fresh and very clean. It was the biggest factor in clearing up my face. Breakouts are very rare for me now. Price $14.00 and it also lasts about two months. Available at the same locations as above!

Eye Serum: Clinique All About Eyes Serum

This is a roll on serum that I use everyday. It helps with eye puffiness and lightens black circles. It takes a few minutes to dry, but that's the only downfall. Price $26.00. I bought it about a month and a half ago and it barely looks used.

Eye Cream: Avon ANEW Rejuvenate (24Hour Eye Moisturizer)

It is a two in one eye cream. There is a night time gel moisturizer included. It has SPF 25. Now I don't really have any "crows feet" or bad wrinkles, but this cream has lightened up the area around my eyes and has made them really smooth. Price $28.00. I didn't pay full price for this item, I actually bought a trial sale kit that included a full size eye cream. Available at or your local Avon representative.

Face Cream: Avon ANEW Rejuvenate (Revitalizing Cream)

SPF 25. It is a non greasy face cream, which for me is hard to find. It is very light and makes a good base for my make-up. This product has made my face very smooth. Love it! Price $30.00 for the full size but I got the trial size.

Well I believe I have told you everything, ha ha, so feel free to leave comments!
