Favorite Top 5 Lip Products

Kat Von d underage red lipgloss Review

Painted Love Lipgloss So, recently I have been getting really into Pin up Girl make- up. I always have loved the red lip and the liquid eyeliner. But, every time I did the red lipstick look it just was either too dark or it was too light or it just didn't look good on me. I have about lost all hope in every finding the perfect red shade. I tried different red lip glosses as well, but the color that was in the tube never came out the same on my lips.

So, if you are like me  that like red lips but either afraid to go with red matte lipstick and have trouble finding the right shade of lip gloss in a drug store brand try the new Kat Von d painted love lip gloss. I am in love with this shade and texture of the product. It gives the perfect red lip with a glossy touch. I like this product alot also because you can me it dark or lighter by apply more or less of the product which you can do with alot of lipsticks.

I would give this a 5/5 because it allows you to make it lighter or darker and has a pleasant smell to the product. This product cost originally 18 dollars at Sephora but it currently on sale for 9.I think it has a real classy design with the roses.  This product is meant to be used without a chapstick base underneath. I have worn it before with a chapstick base but, it would come off faster then when I used it without it. All in all it is a great product and perfect for a pin up 1940's  look.If you tried this product please let me know what you think about it. And if you wish me to do a pin up girl make up tutorial video leave me a comment about that. :)
Happy Holidays

NAKED Juice and Check in

Green MachineHey everyone,
I am very sorry for not keeping up with this blog. It has been so busy with work and school. But, I will try to make YouTube videos and blog posts on the weekends. So, don't worry I didn't forget or decided not to blog anymore. Its just that is been a little hectic. But, the first thing I want to say is that I got a job. :) Yay. I have been looking for a while and I got hired at a daycare close to my house. 
Secondly I want to talk about my new favorite drink, NAKED juice, not only does it taste amazing but it also is really healthy for and since I am not a person that eats a lot of fruits and vegetables a glass of this juice is the perfect substitute. My favorite flavor at the moment is "Green Machine".
I got hooked on this juice when I was coming back from L.a. and I wanted a healthy drink that wasn't water. Plus, I can't drink any energy drinks because they have alot of caffeine in them.

When I was picking the flavor, this juice appealed to me because of the color, yes I know strange.:) But, I don't alot of greens and this juice had spinach and broccoli both vegetables that I tend to stay way from. So, I was i little nervous to try but, the taste is amazing. It doesn't taste anything like either of those vegetables. If I didn't know any better I would say it was a kiwi smoothie. Also, I feel like it is a smart on the go chose of drink rather than having a soda or a energy drink. I don't have a crash feeling after drinking it either. All in all I have found my new favorite drink. I am so glad that I gave it a try and didn't reject it because of the color or the vegetables in it, which I so often due with juices that have vegetables in them.

My favorite part about this drink is that you get your serving of vegetables without tasting them, which in my book is a 5/5 deal.
I am absolutely in love with this drink. If you have tried any flavors of the Naked Juices please let me know, so I can get some ideas on what to purchase next.

P.s. Thank You  for kindly waiting for the You Tube videos and tutorials they are coming I promise. I just need to find some free time when I am not studying or working. :)

How To Make Your Eye Shadow Stay On? "Request"

  • Hi everyone,
  • You may wonder why Primer, well a simple reason is that you face produces natural oils that can tend to make you make up smudge. Some great ways to control the oils while being able to where eye shadow is by using primers.Primers are just great way to create a seal between your eyelids and your eyeshadow. Primers also create smooth eyelids for easy application.
  • Today I got a request to do a blog about how to keep your shadow on through out the day. Believe me for years I have struggled with this too. I'd put on a really pretty eyeshadow and by the end of the day it would all be gone or it would crease. (And if you know me I am a huge eyeshadow junkie:])
  • Well, there  are a few different ways to keep keep your eyeshadow from fading throughout the day. The first way would be using a concealer, this  can be purchased for a few dollars at any CVS or Rite Aid or whatever type of drugstore you have around your area. Some products that I would recommend would be Physicians Formula Rx for dark circles. This is the product I have talked about before  in a different blog. This works wonders, it gets rid of dark circles and keeps your eyeshadow on all day. It can be purchased for $8.95 at CVS. Another product that I would recommend from CVS  is the Almay  eye base and Concealer ($8.99). Another great product from CVS is the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Perfector($13.99). If your a looking to spend under five dollars you can purchase the "Wet n Wild" Concealer stick,($1.99) This Concealer stick does the trick as well but doesn't make too much of a hole in your wallet.If you don't want to use a concealer to prime your eyes there are many eye shadow primers that will do the trick, though these are a little bit more costly but they work magic. One primer that I only hear good things about is the Urban Decay primer potion that costs around 18 dollars. Another high end primer is the MAC prep and Prime eye primer, two faced eye primer and the Lancome Eye primer.
  • If you have tried any other primers or know any other tricks to keep your eyeshadow from fading or creasing please leave a comment on the bottom, I'm curious to see what other people use to keep their eyeshadow from fading or creasing.
