Hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial day weekend, I did! Kinda sad I didn't get any good pictures of my outfit from when I went out Saturday night, I wore a floral romper from Urban Outfitters . These aren't really great pictures of the makeup either, but hey, it is something lol. I am still wearing wash and goes, I'm so proud of my self. I couldn't straighten it if I wanted to though, way too hot!

NARS Blush Swatches!

Clockwise starting at top left: Duo: Love Joy and Albatross, Taos, Exhibit A, Taj Mahal

Before I became addicted to lipstick, blush was my favorite make up item. I never do my make up with out blush and I love how it can brighten up your whole face. NARS is one of my favorite brands of blush. They have gorgeous bright pigmented colors that show up beautifully on darker skin tones. The NARS blushes I own are Exhibit A, Taj Mahal, Taos, and the Lovejoy and Albatross Duo. I highly recommend these blushes, they may cost a little more ($26 each) but they last forever. I know you aren't suppose to keep makeup this long lol but I have some of these for years and there is just a little dent in them. The following swatches are very heavy, these do not look scary at all when applied lightly to the face.

Exhibit A: matte red
Taj Mahal: bright orange with golden shimmer
Taos: rose with shimmer 
Love Joy: pinkish brown with shimmer
 Albatross: golden white. This is a great highlight for darker skin tones, I wear it pretty much every time I wear makeup. It does not look white on the skin at all, it gives a soft golden glow.I like to use it above my cheek bones.

Of the five Taj Mahal, Lovejoy, and Albatross are my favorites! If you have brown skin, you need Taj Mahal!

Left to Right: Exhibit A, Taj Mahal, Taos, Lovejoy, Albaross

What are your favorite NARS blushes or blushes of other brands?!

Nail Polish Haul! (Crackle, Minted, and Craving Coral swatches!)

I have been neglecting my nails for a while , so I finally decided I would start building my nail polish collection. I have been interested in the crackle nail polishes for the past couple of months but could not find them anywhere and did not want them enough to order online. Today while in CVS I spotted Sally Hansen's Crackle! I only picked up white and black for now, but there are a lot of different colors (gold, silver, purple, blue, etc). The black seemed easier for me to use than the white. I also got Minted by Revlon! I am really excited about this because I have been looking for this color since I saw it on another blog a while ago. I almost ordered it off eBay last night, so glad I didn't!  I really love this color, but it seems to apply a little streaky. I also got Craving Coral by Revlon. This is a beautiful coral and is similar to the nail polish in my last post it is just brighter and applies much better than Minted! I also picked up Revlon Quick Dry Base Coat and Revlon Extra Life No Chip Top Coat. I will review these once I use them.

I did these swatches quick just to show the colors so they aren't very neat.I like the crackles over Minted, don't think I like them over Craving Coral too much.
I will post pictures when I use these colors on my whole hand.

Out of Punch: Nail of the Day!

This is the first time I have painting my nails in forever! I work with children and I am constantly washing my hands so it is not even worth it. I need to file my nails and shape them but I just rushed and painted them last night. It is a little sloppy but I like the color a lot. I purchased the nail polish from DSW, this is the first time I used this brand. The color is called Out of Punch. I got this ring from Forever 21 not to long ago, I love it! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!

What is you favorite nail polish color?!

FOTD:Neutral with a Pop of Color!

Hello!  I did this quick look when I went out with my friends last night. I kept the eyes neutral with a pop of color! Tete a Tint is the perfect lid color for me when trying to keep the eyes natural and I am really starting to like colored eyeliners as an easy way to add color to your face. I also pick up a purple that I can't wait to try! The eyeliner looked a little brighter in person and I liked how it matched my peacock earrings.I also wore a similar look today when I went to Chuck E Cheese for my cousins birthday today, the only differences were I wore Taj Mahal Blush and didn't wear eyeshadow. Now that the weather is consistently warm I am pretty sure I am going to wear buns through out the week and wash and go or braid out on weekends if I go out.I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Vegas Volt and Floral Shorts!

I know I say this alot, but I think I am in love with this lipstick! It is such a beautiful coral color that is actually coral (although it looks very pink in the following picture). I wanted this lipstick for a long time but I was afraid I would not be able to pull it off and it would be too light. I paired it with beet lip liner very lightly. I also wore my floral shorts from Forever 21, I really like the material and the fit of them.

These are pictures of my outfit, ignore the drinks lol and the lipstick was gone by this point. I did have a picture with my shoes but the picture is terribleeee lol.

Wash and Go with Eco Styler + 1 Year Unstreched Comparison Pics!

Hi! I have been wanting to post all week,but  this week kinda sucked because I had a sore throat and a fever from Monday to Thursday. Awful. Last night I finally felt well enough to hang out with my friends! I did this wash and go Using Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship and Eco Styler gel. I like this combo a lot. I get the same results as more expensive products but it cost much less. I got my scarf from somewhere on ebay. I was so dissappointed when it arrived because it is so small and I wanted to use it to make a headband with a big bow, It has a pretty pattern though! I am also kind of annoyed with my hair because the ends get really defined but the rest is just frizz. It has always been like this but the length seems to be making it worse.Oh well lol. Hope everyone has an amazing Saturday and Mothers Day tomorrow!

Comparison Pictures: 

These pictures were taken a little over a year apart. I remember this time last year I thought it would take forever to see a difference in my hair unstreched because of shrinkage so I am very happy to see a noticeable difference!

My Favorite Bright Mac Lipsticks! (swatches!!!)

Left to Right: Vegas Volt, Morange, Impassioned, Girl About Town, Rebel, Ruby Woo

It is no secret that I am obsessed with lipstick.
So I thought I'd do a post featuring my favorite bright colors from Mac.
I am all about bright lips this season, it is such an easy fun way to add color to your face!
I have done lip swatches or Fotds with all of these except for Vegas Volt, so I am not going to do them again I will just post the links.
I will post a Fotd with Vegas Volt soon, I just bought it yesterday and can not wait to wear it out!

Vegas Volt is an Amplified Creme formula and is described as a "full power coral". 

Morange is an Amplified Creme formula and is described as a "loudmouth orange".

Impassioned is an Amplified Creme formula and is prescribed as a "amped-up fuchsia"

Girl About Town is an Amplified creme formula and is described as a "fabulous fuchsia".

Rebel is a Satin formula and is described as a "vivid pinkish purple".

Ruby Woo is a Matte finish and is described as a "vivid bluish-red"

I am not sure what happened here lol, but it does a good job of showing the differences between the colors.

What are your favorite bright lipsticks?!

H&M Haul:Ruffles, Flowers, and Animal Print!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I did a little shopping yesterday! 
 I really shouldn't have, 
but I love everything I purchased!
Warm weather makes me want to buy new clothes.
Everything is from H&M except for the floral romper which is from Target.

Loving patterned shorts right now!
I saw this skirt for the first time months ago and loved it but they didn't have it in my size.Happy I finally got it!
I think I only bought this because it is leopard print lol, I have no use for it.
Really loving floral patterns right now and romper, the bow is really cute too!
