The Newest Addition to my eyeshadow collection!!!


Hey, Dolls!

The newest addition to my eyeshadow collection is... The NAKED 2 palette!!! I haven't entered a blog giveaway in a long time and the first one I enter, I end up a winner :-)

I won this fabulous palette in a giveaway from the beautifully, talented Trina from Trina J Makeup. Trina offers some of the best beauty and product knowledge in her videos and on her blog. All of her expertise comes from first hand experience, she's worked at several makeup companies and she currently works as a freelance makeup artist.

Naked 1 on the left, Naked 2 on the right

The Naked palette 2 features 12 neutral shades, a duo eyeshadow brush and a lip gloss.  I thought the 12 colors would be very similar to the original Naked palette, but; I swatched both palettes and the shades are different in each palette...in my opinion.

All of the shades are perfect for everyday wear, they're easy to glam up or play down. I'm a big fan of Urban Decay shadows...they remain richly pigmented and easy to work with.

I had been playing with this palette for the longest time at Sephora, so glad I won it...cant wait to create some looks.

 Thanks again Trina :-)

Hey hey now! I know you are soooo excited about this! Naked 2 is still on my wishlist and I hope hubby buys it for me soon! I love UD shadows too, because they are so pigmented and last for as long as you want them to. Can't wait to see what looks you come up with using this :)

My favorite!!! This palette is amazing. I think I like this one more than the first. UD hit gold with the Naked line.

Yes! The Naked line is a winner, I'm wondering if they will be coming out with a 3 this year? I heard the Naked foundations are a hit too.

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!



Before


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…

-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.
