OCC Makeup Lip Tar Stained Gloss (3 Shades) - Photos and Swatches

Today I have a few swatches of the new OCC Lip Tar Stained Glosses. I love the regular lip tars but now I can't get enough of these with the gloss finish. These are still just as pigmented as the original lip tars, just with a glossy finish. I bought the colors Meta, Hydrogyne, and Jealous. See swatches and more photos below!

Event: Turn Any Light Into The Spotlight Elle Magazine and Wella Professionals

Last night I attended an event hosted Elle Magazine and Wella Professionals at Salon Eleven in downtown LA. They were doing color consultations and dry styling for everyone that attended. I was able to get there a half an hour early and get my hair loosely curled. I talked to and met some great people. See more photos from the event below!

Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils Baby Doll - Review

I'm very picky when it comes to mascara and how I want my lashes to look. My lashes are super straight, long, and thick on their own. So when I'm searching for a great mascara, I'm looking for something that can hold curl and not get clumpy. I was really interested in trying a high end mascara and ended up getting this one from YSL. I bought it from the YSL website and I got the color Fetish Black. Find out how this mascara worked for me below!

Beauty Box by Target - See What's Inside

The Beauty Box by Target just arrived at my door today. Target is creating a monthly program that will let you receive samples of 4-5 products from brands in the store. I was really interested to see what kind of products would be in the box and more importantly, if it's worth it. I only paid $5 so if it was tiny samples then I wasn't losing out on a lot of money. See what is inside below!!

Wet N Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palettes - Swatches and Review

Hi! How is everyone doing? I went back to Walgreens recently and bought the eyeshadow palettes from the Fergie Summer Collection. I was really curious to see how the quality was going to be with these eyeshadows and if they are good like the other Wet N Wild eyeshadows. For some reason the shadows in the Fergie line are never as pigmented so I thought maybe it's improved. See more photos and swatches below!

Revlon Super Lustrous Shine Lipstick ( 2 Shades) - Swatches and Review

Revlon has recently came out with some new lipsticks which are Super Lustrous Shine lipsticks. These are supposed to be more moisturizing than the regular Super Lustrous lipsticks and have a shine finish. I was kind of excited about these since my lips are usually really dry, so with these I can get color and moisture all in one. See swatches and review below!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss (3 Shades) - Photos and Swatches

Today I have a few swatches of the new Revlon Super Lustrous Lipglosses. There are 12 new shades and they are in new packaging as well. I have the other Super Lustrous Lipglosses that were in square packaging and have loved those. I prefer though the round packaging which is nice and the formula is a bit better. These seem to be less sticky and more moisturizing. See more photos and swatches below!

NYC Rooftop Party Collection Sweet Splash Gloss Sticks (All Shades) - Swatches and Review

NYC has came out with these new gloss sticks and I just had to try them. I love any kind of lip product that comes in a jumbo pencil type packaging so I knew these had to be just as good.

What's Currently in my Makeup Bag (Tarte, NARS, Maybelline, Anastasia, etc.)

I thought it would be a good idea to do a "What's in my makeup bag" post. I did one a long time ago and obviously I'm using different products than before. These are the products I use on a daily basis except my foundation which I didn't include. I got this cute makeup bag from SOHO Beauty when I went to LuckyFABB and have been using it ever since. It's the perfect size for everything I need. If you want to see what is inside, read below!

NOTD: Orly Mayhem Mentality

I went to Sally's a few days ago and I couldn't resist this new Orly nail polish. This is from the new Orly Mash Up Summer collection that includes 5 other shades. I actually went to Sally's a couple of weeks ago and they had ran out. When I went back they had it and I had to snatch it up. See more below!
