Sigma Paris Makeup Palette

I've been wanting this palette for a super long time and I can honestly say it is truly spectacular! I love it so much, super pigmented and the colors are unique and shimmery.

I think the pictures speak for themselves. The colors are so pretty and unlike anything else I have in my collection. I love the right side that can be neutral enough for the day or the left side that is super colorful and fun. The black glittery shade surprisingly has minimal fallout. The highlight color looks great in the inner corners of the eye or even patted on the brow bone. The blushes are super pigmented and you need to remember to use a light hand with your brush.

Here's a look I did with the palette:

The palette is limited edition so if you're interested I would get one before it's sold out. It's discounted right now at $49.

Review: Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Seashell Pink

I have a love affair with Tarte, all of their products are exceptional and they also don't test on animals, and use naturally derived ingredients. This particular product I use very frequently and I one of my staple cream shadows.

Now I'm partial to pink eyeshadow but I think that this is a really wearable pink that is so easy to slap on and head out the door. It adds the right amount of shimmer that looks nice enough on it's own, but when you layer a shimmery pink shadow on top it really stands out.

The wear time is great too, doesn't crease for pretty much the whole day even though I have oily lids. If I really want it to stay perfect I'll slap on a primer underneath, but usually I don't bother. If you're looking for a product that is easy to use and looks ever so pretty and feminine I really would check this out!

$19 @ Sephora

Halloween Nail Art Designs

Lately I've been posting my nail art on my tumblr page, but I figured it couldn't hurt to post some here. I did an entire nail wheel of Halloween designs and I'm pretty happy with it:

I also did these sugar skull designs on my own nails recently:

Let me know what you think! I love getting creative with nail art during the holidays. I don't go to parties or anything like that, so this is my way of getting festive. Oh, and if you are planning on using these images on your blog, please link back to my blog, thanks.

Lana Del Rey Ride Inspired Makeup

SO I recently saw the new Lana Del Ray Ride video, and I could not stop watching it! I've always been a big fan of hers, but this video blew me away. I just had to re-create the makeup, which was actually pretty simple. She didn't go for her usual winged liner and red-orange lips. The vibe of the video was about being free and not being held down, so I don't think heavy makeup would have worked for that. Of course she still has on big lashes, but overall it was a pretty simple look. Here is my interpretation:

I left the eyes pretty bare with just a bit of shading to accentuate the eye contours, and a smudgy gray on the lower lash line. I also used large lashes. The cheeks have a touch of a peachy pink blush and a teeny bit of a contour, as well as nude lips. It's not 100% like Lana but it's what I felt inspired to do. Here are some screen grabs from her video for reference:

Tarte Airbrush Maracuja Blush Review

These blushes as far as I know are only available on the Tarte Website. I'm not sure why oit's not on Sephora, but maybe it'll pop up on there soon.

Here is what Tarte says:
A first of its kind! This creamy, long-wearing blush fuses the ease and blendability of a cream blush with the soft-focus and long-wear finish of a blush that has been airbrushed on the skin. The airsprun formula melts into skin, delivering a powerful dose of skinvigorating™ maracuja oil, and then dries down to a feather-light, long-wear flush with a subtle dewy finish. Awaken your complexion with a pop of maracuja-infused color on the cheeks and treat your skin to the repairing and hydrating properties of maracuja for a brighter and smoother complexion.

Both of these blushes have shimmer and tiny glitters to it. However, the shimmers aren't intense when you apply to the cheeks, they look nice! The texture of the blushes is much like Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes. They definitely have a bouncy feel to them. It's a cream-powder hybrid, kind of hard to explain unless you feel them yourself. The pigmentation is fabulous, not like the bouncy blushes at all. You can layer on for a brighter cheek, or use one layer for a soft pigmentation. I find fingers work best with this product, you can use a brush but I really feel fingers work better.

These definitely don't last as long as their amazonian clay blushes, so you might want to bring it with you during the day to touch up. After you apply it it feels satiny, not particularly dewy or matte. I really like them. $25 at

bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 The September Issue Review

I'm in love! Let's have a lookie :)

I cannot describe how buttery and smooth these shadows are! I love how compact this palette is, and how it has a mix of neutrals and bright colors. The metallic teal color is my favorite. A bit pricey at $40 a pop, but I think worth it. All the shades are pigmented, the pink color does show up a bit more gold looking on the lids than pink though.
