Lipgloss of the Week, Month? (Another Lippie Post)

Mac Revealing lip glass and Cork lip liner
I got this idea from another beauty blogger, Mocha Mish Mash, (her link is below and under the beauty blogs of interest column) she gets a blog award for coming up with this idea. I love her makeup photos of the day and her beauty product reviews, especially the drugstore makeup reviews the most. I was reading one of her posts and she posted that she has a lot of lip glosses (like me) that she doesn't use. So, she gave herself a beauty challenge! She challenged herself to wear 1 of her lip glosses for a full week. So, I'm challenging myself to do the same. I'm not good with persistence at times, so I don't know if I'll be able to keep this up every week, maybe I'll try for lip gloss of the month :)

This week I'm wearing Mac's Revealing lip glass. I've paired it up with Cork lip liner. Revealing is described as "rich caramel" but to me it comes off as the perfect nude lip gloss. Cork lip liner is described as "muted golden brown." Below are the swatches.

Here is how they both look together!

I love this lip glass. It's the perfect everyday gloss. I've been wearing it every day to work, because it's neutral in color it looks great with a dramatic, smokey eye look.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.

Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."

Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
