Sephora Colorful Artist Palette Warm

Another review of new makeup that I bought! I bought this palette because most of the eye palettes and shadows that I have are cool colors and I needed to purchase a warm color palette to enhance my makeup collection/kit.

After browsing Sephora's website,( I decided to buy this palette. It's the Limited Edition Sephora Colorful Artist Palette Warm. The value is $51 but it's priced at $32. The shadows are dime-sized but will still go a long way. I have not tried the colors yet because I just received it today in the mail but already I can tell the colors are not that highly pigmented meaning that the color payoff will not be as intense as I normally like my eye shadow. But have no fear because they are ways to getting around this. I will most likey have to use a white base as my primer on my entire eye area from lash line to brow bone. A white base on the eyes makes lighter colors or even dull colors POP! The result is the color is more vibrant and pigmented. A good white eye base is NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk. It can be purchased at beauty supply stores and Ebay. The price should be no more than $5. You can also use water to make the color more vibrant. Just add water to your makeup brush first and add the shadow to the brush and then apply the color to your eye and you should be able to see an immediate difference in the color vibrancy.

I do recommend this kit for anyone because it gives you 15 colors to play with in matte to shimmer finishes. It's small enough to fit in your purse and the colors are very beautiful and all the colors will look good on anyone and because the colors don't offer a lot of vibrancy- if you happen to make a mistake in applying the shadow most likely no one will be able to tell :)

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…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.

Black Opal: True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation Review

As of late, I've have been loving this foundation. I have gotten a tan, and this prompted me to buy a new foundation matching my new shade. The color that I bought is Truly Topaz and probably in the Fall/Winter I will be back to my Heavenly Honey shade. I've used Black Opal foundations before, and I figured I would give this new one a try. Read on for my thoughts.


"Keep them guessing with picture poreless skin. This lightweight, oil-free liquid foundation seamlessly blends to provide flawless coverage with a high definition finish. Exclusive poreless technology helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, controls excess oil and renews skin natural radiance. Oil, fragrance and paraben-free formula. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive."


-Inexpensive, it's $10.95 online and retails anywhere between $12-$13 in stores.
-Light to medium coverage, this is a pro for those who have relatively clear skin.
-The coverage is buildable.
