Venomous Villains

SSSOOOO I have been dying to get my hands on this collection!! unfortunately I was working the day it came out so my bf said he would go and get the stuff for me (sooo sweet!). He got there right before the store opened so nothing would be sold out yet. I wanted everything but I knew I couldnt have it all.. so it took me forever to decide what I should get...

I got at least one item from each collection >)

Dr Facilier: Lipgelee in resort life (it is very glittery .. look more like chunks of glitter on your lips vs. glossy.. i still love it since im a fan of nude)
Maleficent: lipglass in revenge is sweet (love this on because it reminds me of "kiss me" gloss by looks bright but its a sheer light pink that enhances any lipstick you put underneath)

Cruella De Vil:
Lipstick in innocence, beware (love it .. pinky nude... my fav!!)
Lipglass in devilishly stylish (cute w/ the lipstick or alone.. its a peachy nude)

and my most favorite ..The Evil queen! .. I love her and I some how always thought I look like her :p
eyeshadow in vainglorious (very pretty color.. i used it as eyeliner today)
beauty powder in oh so fair (i got this one just because i like the picture on the outside..maybe ill use it one day)
blush in bite of an apple (very nice color but can get quite intense very quickly its a matte coraly pink)

so yes this collection is a must ..even if you just get one item.. it just makes me soo happy :o)

the "happily ever after" end!

What are your favorite items from this collection?

AND another product review :)

ok so I have to start by saying I love MAKE UP FOR EVER and that is why I might be a bit too nice to the follow product that it deserves.
It is the High Definition Elixer $38..
What it claims to do:
Its a serum that hydrates and adds radiance to the skin.

This unique, lightweight elixir absorbs quickly into the skin, instantly hydrating and brightening the complexion. Each ingredient was specifically added to prepare skin for high- definition makeup—so you can count on the camera picking up the perks of this perfecting formula.

Now even tho this product gets great reviews.. I say its not that greatest thing ..Ihardly noticed a difference in my skin or how my make-up would wearon the days I put on this product. It does absorb quicky but I did not see any difference in the hydration of my skin and nor did i see a big difference in the brightnesss.. OMG and it finishes so quicky too :/ I would say this product is not a must and If you ask me I would just stick To the MUFE HD foundation (LOOOVVVEEE IT!!).

I do tend to post random things in no particular order but I would love to hear for you guys as to what kind of posts you would like to see.. please let me know :o)

Product Review: Power Youth

Power Youth is a moisturized (they say its a serum.. but I say otherwise) from GIVENCHY with SPF 15.  It retails for $61.. (kinda pricy I will not re-invest in this product for a while).
What they say it will do: prevent signs of aging before they start..

did I see a difference .. nah not really but then again im only 24

What did I loveabout this product:
It left my skin sooo smooth yet moisturized.. if has spf but it was not heavy or greasy at all... it had a very light smell so that was a plus because I dislike heavy scented products. I also noticed it would give my skin a nice glow the point where i felt it necessary to not wear foundation.

Nail polish love...AGAIN :p

So I have fallen in love yet again... and this time with Lucky Lucky Lavender... OOHH my freakin GOOODDNESSSS this color is just so cute!

Remind me of strawberry milk or even MAC's Snob lipstick (one of my favs!) tone bab-ish pink w/ a lil pop!

I even did my toes to match ;p
If you happen to be interested in this color ..get it ASAP before it is gone...

Wicked... finally!!

So I finally saw Wicked at the Orpheum yesterday.. and it was amazing!! I have been waiting to see it for a long time now.. It was my birthday last week and my bf got us tickets to go see it.  The performance was great and upbeat for the most part.  The costumes were very unique and breath taking, the stage set up and transitions were done very well.. I wont say too much but all in all its a must see!!

Before we went to the show we had dinner at a Brazilian  place called Espetus.  Its a nice little place on Market St. about 5 blocks away from the theater.. now me being a vegetarian .. I probably would not have gone there if it werent for my bf that very much enjoys meat.  It is buffet style ..kinda.. the people come around with different meat and pour if for you unitl you indicate on your place card that you dont want anymore.  I had a salad and then we had dessert... and OMG mine was soo good it was called "the peanutbutter thing" and I loved it!

He likes to take pics and sometimes I get camera shy ;p

Love and Hate

OK so I came to the realization that I always talk about things that I love.. and why not if I love something I want others to have the opportunity to love it too.  At the same time I need to talke about things that I dislike..

Example this Redken shampoo.. I disliked it to the MAX there came a point where just looking at it pissed me off.. I even left it in the shower so my sister would use it up; because she uses all my stuff and she didnt even use it.
Reasons why I disliked this product:
it claims that it will preserve your hair color (dyed) vs. a regular shampoo.. tell me why this shampoo stripped my color soo fast and gave me a dry scalp. I had red highlights at the time and they faded to a brown so fast while I was using this shampoo/conditioner.  For comparison reasons I have to say while I was using my purple pureology shampoo the red highlights lasted so much longer..

only plus smelled good.

ok on to my favorite part.. what I love.. so I got this exfoliator about 2 months ago and I use it once every week.  It has very fine exfoliant beads and smells citrus-y.  I use it while im in the shower and I exfoliate my skin continuously for 2 mins w/ it for a deep cleaning.  Its not some miracle worker but it does work well.. I have noticed brighter more glowy skin.. less blackheads in the nose area and it even helps fade scaring a bit too.

Dior and EOS

Like every other make-up junkie I will go through phases of lip products.  I will start using something and then I will keep it in my purse and continue to use it until I re-discover something else.  At the moment I am loving the Dior addict ultra gloss pearls:

Number 267 (pink) and 236 (peach). I usually wear nude0ish colored lips so these go well with the lipsticks I wear.  I like the formula because it is very shiny w/o the sticky mess! .. down side times the glitter can be a bit much for the day time.

Another lip product that I have been excited about lately is the EOS lip balm .. 

Not only is it the cutest thing ever but it feels sooooo good :o) It comes in different flavors also but the smell or taste is not over bearing.  I got a set of three for about $10 .. I wasnt going to use them all so I gave one to the sister and one to the bf.  If you ever have a problem w/ your lipstick not going on well because your lipbalm is too waxy you dont have to worry about that with this product. 

SSSOOOOO I got a killer sunburn.. then it became a nice-ish tan ....and now (not surprised) I am peeling like crazzzyyyyy!!!!  LOL to the fabulous tan line ;p

PLease Help... any tips on how to get rid of the peeling phase faster???

My sisters prom

So my sister's prom was this weekend and naturally she expected me to do her make-up ...even tho I was working.. =/  ..sooo being the nice and most amazing sister that I am;  I rushed home and had about 35 minuets to do her make-up.  We decided a smokey eye would be best. So I did a dark green smokey eye, with peachy cheeks and lips :o)

My sister can't keep make-up on her face to save her life ..she is so careless sometimes so I used this on her:

....and thank you God for this make-up setting spray because her make-up lasted all night. Now this is not a miracle product or anything but it does do what it says.  It keeps your make-up on longer! it is lightweight and dries quick too :).. and NOPE it didnt change the color of any of the products on her face

 22 more days until Eclipse!!! I am sooo excited!!! the bf says hes not.. but I know secretly even he is!!! who can resist these two ;p

Benetint and Eclipse Fashion!

Let me start off by saying I Love Benefit products .. it could be a result of working for Benefit Cosmetics for 2-3 years in the ast  .. or its because they have absolutely fantastic products.. I used to use Benetint (it is a steamed rose petal stain that was originally made for a stripper nipples but in present times it is used for long lasting lip and cheek color) very often and I just forgot about it for the last couple years; until the other day I was running late for work and didnt want to go to work w/ no make-up on (because then I look 14); I put on a little bit of concealer under my eyes (due to my genetic dark circles.. thats what I get for being indian :p) ..some mascara and Benetint on my lips ..a couple layers to get the color a bit more intense.. I added a little glosss over it and I was all set!

yes yes underneath all the bronzers ..foundations.. and self tanners.. i am just a pale kid but over the years i'v learned to work with what i'v got :o)

Beneath the make-up & behind the smile i'm just a girl who wishes for the world
-Marilyn Monroe

I am just sooo freakin excited for June 30th to come already!!... whats june 30th??? 
Eclipse!!!!  I am such a fan of twilight as you can probably tell by reading my previous posts ;p ..  OK now get this.. Nordstrom is going to have their very own line of Eclipse inspired clothes!! I am so excited can pre-order now on .. they even have lifesize cutouts of Jacob..Bella..Alice and Edward .. but I dont know about all that.  I did like some of the sweatshirts and tanks tho.. They also have the Luna Twilight make-up line on there .. I havent tried any of the products yet but I might have to =o

Did i mention I am sooooo excited?!

Who doesnt like a simple smokey eye?

Sometimes I feel like a smokey eye using different shadows is too harsh during the day especially if I am going to be out doors.  So the other day I was in a hurry and did a quick smokey eye w/ just a few things and I actually liked it a lot (pics taken on my way usual). 

So I put on my Make Up For Ever mat velvet+ foundation (because it was going to be a hot day); I set it with a little but of MAC blot powder in medium . A  put a little concealer under my eyes and urban decay primer potion to prime my lids. Then I used a highlighter under my brows and a brown on my lid up into my crease (I want to say i used soft brown by MAC). 

I then lined my upper and lower waterline with urban decay 24/7 eye pencil in zero. Then took a hard angled brush and smudged feline khol power eye pencil all around my lid.  IMPORTAIN PART: lots and lots of mascara ..I used Diorshow extase ... OMG freakin lllooooovvvvveee it!!! (at the end of the day it comes off so easily too)

I finished off the look w/ a little too faced sun bunny bronzer and Tarina Tarantinos leatherette lipstick (w/ clear gloss over it) on my lips :o)

favorite moisturizer / FOTD

YAY!! who says you can do peach on the eyes ..cheeks and lips at the same time!!

It was a lazy makeup day but I loved it!

I have decided  my all time moisturizer is the Chanel Hydramax (gel.. not the cream) it really hydrates my skin and even helps even out the tone and texture without being greasy or heavy in anyway. I LOVE the smell of it also; it is not too strong like some can be..  I usually use the hydramax during the night and then another moisturizer w/ sunscreen during the day.

But.. im all out now!! time for a new one!
Another night moisturizer I do like is the L'Occitane Amande Pomme one... it really helps minimize any enlarged pores =)

sooo sick =/

So the past couple days have been horrible .. I had caught the flu from a friend but I kept telling myself im fine.

WRONG! this morning I woke up with huge tonsils! UUMM GROSS and painful! and now I feel sicker than ever... but besides the hurt throat, running nose, constant sneezing/coughing, watery eyes, an annoying pounding in my head and an on/off temp .. i am totally fine ;o)

This morning I decided my favorite mascara routine is:

-curl (MAC)
-prep&prime lash (MAC)
-LashBlast (covergirl) 2 coats
-Fabulash (revlon) 2 coats ..over the lashblast

and taaa daa!!!

I get dark, long and thick lashes! and it comes off super easy when I wash my face because I use the non-waterproof kind.

Whats my favorite high end mascara combo??? ... havent quite decided yet... I'll keep you posted tho :o)

random quote I used today (love it):
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
I know its over used ..but its so freakin true!

P.S: yay for Shaun White on the cover of  RollingStone magazine!

Edward Cullen... my little problem

Ok so like a lot of other girls..and guys..after reading the Twilight series I also fell oh so hopelessly in love w/ Edward Cullen.
..No joke! to the point where i found myself quoting him =/ but who can blame me .. hes just so perfect!

So after falling in love w/ Edward and the twilight series, I watched Twilight (the movie) and slowly after watching it a few times started having a thing for Robert Pattinson. sister says his face looks like a foot! ugh! hate her sometimes =p

So I was watching the view the other day because Robert Pattinson was going to be on there; he was promoting his new movie Remember Me with Emilie de Ravin (girl from Lost).  Now I had seen previews of the movie before.. it was tempting but I had told myself I could live w/o  watching it..  yeah.. no! not after watching him on the view...

I freakin gotta watch it now.. I mean ..just look at him!!

THIS is freakin ridiculous one could almost say that Stephenie Mayer (author of Twilight/creator of Edward)  has even single handed-ly ruined my love life forever!!!  I want Edward and will never find him.. how sad :o(

All this madness could have been prevented if it werent for Stephenie having a dream about a vampire and a girl talking in the meadow about how "all this is impossible and will never work"... yeah thats how all this started ..w/ a dream!! Dont believe me? check out her website!

..but then again I live for madness ..otherwise things would be ooohhh soo boring!! and who likes BORING?!

..but dont take my word for it:

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous that absolutely boring"
-Marilyn Monroe

** New moon comes out on March 20th, 2010 ..SOOO soon =D  .. I already pre-ordered my "3"disc deluxe edition at

The Back-up Plan

OK so I am soooo super excited ever since I saw the preview for The Back-up Plan a couple weeks ago...because

#1:  I absolutely LOVE everything about Jennifer Lopez .. and totally look up to her in many ways (ill have to do a blog all about Jennifer).

#2 The movie looks hilarious!!!!

 Zoe (jennifer lopez) reminds me of an overly exaggerated version of a lot of girls i know ... unmarried yet desperate for a child naturally she is artificially inseminated by her best friend (Male) ...happy ending? not quite! this is when she meets Stan (Alex O'Loughlin) and they start dating (she does not know shes pregnant at this point)... Let the complications and awkwardness begin!

It will be released April 23rd 2010! Cant wait! 

**BONUS: Alex O'Loughlin is just sooo darn good looking!!

As for this weeek yay for Alice in Wonderland tomorrow :o)  ..and Johnny Depp whew! ..did they just take him out the oven..cuz hes hot! (corny..i know ..yet it made u laugh ;p )

just a rebel make-up day

So this morning I decided not to coordinate my make-up ...brownish eyeshadow ...bonzer and PINK lips.. its not the best look but I didnt care.  Usually if I do a more neutral brown eye I will use a peach blush/bronzer and neutral shade lip to create a well balanced make-up application.. but not today =p 

... sooo here it is:

Tarina Tarantino ... now at Sephora =D

I have become a fan of Tarina Tarantino ever since she created her Hello Kitty jewelry line (i freakin LOVE Hello Kitty).  She is an accessory designer who has been given the title "queen of irreverent luxury".   Or you might know her as the woman with the bright fuchsia hair:
Tarina has always been a lover of all things pink and sparkly ...which is usually the inspiration/theme behind a lot of her creations. She was not always an accessory designer..before she became well known she modeled in Paris (at night she would create one of a kind jewelry pieces.. that would get sold right off (literally) her because people loved them sooo much) and even worked as a full time make-up artist in LA. 

What happens when you mix make-up artist + pink-a-licious Accessory designer?

only the most amazing thing ever!!! The Tarina Tarantino make-up line is now at Sephora and it is super CUTE!!  I mean ..come on a kabuki brush called a "kapinki"... LOVE IT!!!


PS: check out her website she has some awesome "Acid Alice" jewelry inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
