Performance Colors Oilslick Look

•••
// Sunday I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy with 8 of my favorite people. It was awesome. I laughed a ton throughout the movie and really enjoyed it. It started off rough for me though. I didn't expect the somber start and that made me cry (Trying not to spoil it for anyone). Anyway, here's what I wore out.     E[...]

Sephora VIB Friends & Family Sale 2013

•••
Sephora has provided VIBs & VIB Rouge with a 20% off code of VIBTOPIA which is good from Nov. 7 through Nov. 11, 2013. Many of you have emailed me to ask what you should pick up during the sale. So I'm going to give you a list of the things I love or I'm lusting after. Usually I think this Sephora sale is a great time to stock up on staples and on pa[...]

Dirty Sexy Golds

•••
I love gold eye shadow. Not fond of gold jewelry, per se, but gold eye shadow is fantabulous. Today I used three of my favorite gold eye shadows. BftE Salted Caramel (I believe this will be for sale on the BftE site on Friday) on the lid and lower lash line. I used Fyrinnae Shenanigans in the crease, outer v and outer lower lash line. I used Fyrinnae Book of[...]

TheBalm on Hautelook

•••
Hey everyone! You know I love to shop Hautelook (affiliate link). Guess who will be on Hautelook tomorrow morning? TheBalm! (Check out my ShadyLady Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 Comparison) I'm not sure what will be available, but I'll definitely be checking it out. Here's a little more about TheBalm, which I didn't know until recently. Quoted from Hautelook, [...]

theBalm Shady Lady Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 Comparison

•••
I did this comparison quite a while ago, not too long after I got my new camera. I got the bright idea of swatching both of theBalm Shady Lady palettes 1 and 2 together. I've labeled all the colors 1 and 2 to go along with the swatches. Volume 1 - My favorite from this one is Jet-setting Jennifer. I also really like Risque Renee, Easy Wheezie,[...]

Lit from Within

•••
The products used in this look all have one thing in common to me... they have a lit from within glow about them. The eye shadow I used in this look is TheBalm's Jet-Setting Jennifer, which is a pale gold that I think really glows. Evil Shades Heartstopper is a metallic hot pink, which I love. MAC Trace Gold blush gives me a bit of a healthy glow to my cheek[...]

Honeyed Absinthe

•••
I wore this look one day last week and really liked it, though I can see several things I'd change about it if I did it again. One, I'd blend the outer crease more. two, I'd put a different shade, perhaps a deeper green like Fyrinnae Dragon's Wing at the outer corner of the lid and outer v area, just to sort of transition better between Sugarpill Absinthe an[...]
