I got a new Hermes Birkin bag...well, almost :-)

So...I have been wanting a Hermes Birkin bag for well over 10 years, since I was 16. I love the style, the shape, size and even the fixtures of the bag. As much as I love the bag, it's really expensive- a Hermes bag costs more than what I presently owe on my car loan, I know I won't be getting one any time soon or maybe even ever!


I will settle for a look alike and that's exactly what I purchased from Just Fab. Just Fab is one of those membership sites like Shoe Dazzle, that sends you a monthly showroom of items to possibly purchase based on your style preferences. Just Fab sells shoes, handbags and even jewelry. 



I purchased this bag last week, it's called the Law bag. It's inspired by the Hermes Ostrich Birkin bag. It's made out of faux ostrich material and it comes with gold fixtures. It's available in 7 other colors perfect for Spring, three of the colors are already sold out. This bag is huge, the size is 17 length x 12 height x 5.5 width. It can be car…

Viva Glam Nicki Lip of the Day

Hey, Glamour Dolls!

I am back with my lip of the day that I promised... this is how Mac Viva Glam Nicki lipstick looks on my skin. I cannot wear this lipstick alone, it looks really pasty, which is a huge makeup "don't" for me. I will advise to please exfoliate your lips before applying it, any dead skin will show up in the application. It's a pretty yellow-based pink...I think the yellow base makes it so eye catching.




I pair it with a my Nyx chestnut liner (any brown lip liner will do), it mutes the pink down and eliminates the pasty look...I love how it turns out. This is definitely a brown-girl friendly shade and really all of the Viva Glam lipsticks are made to compliment any skin tone, if you don't already have it-you should get it. As always, the $14.50 from the Viva Glam lippies goes to supporting Aid's victims, buying a tube is a win-win situation.


Do you own Viva Nicki? How do you like it?

Mac, Inglot Haul + Swatches

Hey, Glamour Dolls!

I'm back with another haul, I surprised myself by buying another haul so soon after the other one, but; I work hard... (shrugs) and I deserve it! Read on to see what I purchased and my thoughts. Click the pics to enlarge.






Lippies


I've been wanting Up the Amp lipstick for a while as well as Viva Glam Nicki and I'm pleased with the both of them. Up the Amp is a lavender violet color, it reminds me of a softer version of Violetta lipstick from Mac. I'm really not a fan of violet lipsticks (go figure) so, I pair it with a brown lip liner and it mutes the color down perfectly for me.

Viva Nicki is gorgeous a beautiful yellow-pink color. I'm going to do a lip of the day, so you all can see how it looks. I've heard that Viva Nicki is going to be around for 1 full year, I'm definitely going to get a few more tubes.




Blush

My Thoughts


I adore this powder! I ran out of my Mac Studio Fix powder and a friend suggested I try this, I love it. It provides a beautiful, flawless finish. It's a powder but the finish and coverage performs like a foundation! There are plenty of days when I just wear the powder on my face with no concealer and foundation and I get a great coverage. I  really like that i…
