I'm a Winner...Again!!! (Makeup Haul)

Wow, this is the second big giveaway that I've won in the last month!!! I won the products from my girl Tisha at Gettin Cocoa.

Tisha is an awesome supporter and blogger friend to me. I feel like I know her so well, even though we haven't met personally. She is a lover off all things makeup and beauty like me... her blog is featured in my blog roll on the right, so; please check out the link and follow.

Believe it or not, a lot of the products that I've won are by brands that I've never tried before, so; it was a real treat to win this giveaway. Below is what I won: 


As much as I've heard so many great things about Sonia Kashuk, I've never bought any of her brushes for my personal use. I was so excited when I won this travel brush set. I've been needing some smaller brushes to go in my cosmetic bag to use every day and now, thanks to this set, I have brushes that can fit in my cosmetic bag.


LOT #1

I got a sample of 6 pigments some are from Mac, cream shadows by Max Factor (very hard to find), a mini brush set, Maybelline Define A line gift set, earrings, Revlon cherry nail polish and Twilight Woods hand sanitizer.

LOT # 2

I received a cute journal (something I always carry in my purse), a beautiful shimmer eyeshadow palette that includes greens, blues and golden shadows, Almay lip gloss and eye palette (highly pigmented), Nyc blush, Wet n Wild lipstick, Jordanna lip liner, Wet n Wild brow set, nail clippers and Kiss lashes. I also received a cosmetic bag and brow kit which is not pictured.


I'm set with enough makeup and goodies to last me through the winter of next year, since a lot of the brands are new to me- I will be sure to make good use of everything. Thanks again, Tisha for my prizes girl!!! I'm really pleased with everything :-)

Have you tried any of these items? What are your thoughts?

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.
