Emerald Jewels

Hey guys! 
I wanted to do a look with the new Too Faced A Few of my Favorite Things Palette. I LOVE this palette! The colors are gorgeous and so pigmented. For this look, I tried recreating one of the looks that I saw in the little pamphlet that came inside the palette. I think it turned out beautifully and quite frankly, one of my favorite looks I've ever done with emerald greens. I hope you like it and if you would like a review of this palette, let me know in the comments :) 

L.A. Colors Jumbo Eye Pencil in Beach Resort- from lash line to crease.

Evergreen patted only over the eye pencil. Gently blend out any harsh edges around the crease. 

Place Buche de Noel in the crease. 

Add Blue Satin Sashes along the upper and lower lash line like you would with eye liner. Also, place a little in the outer corner to add more depth to the look. (I also place Cream Colored Ponies under my brow and in the inner corner of my eye for a highlight) 

Add Rimmel Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in the waterline. This is the navy blue shade in the color Deep Blue 004.

ApplyBetter Than Sex mascara.

Apply Lip Injection Color Bomb! Btw, This stuff really tingles your lips. Mine nearly went numb, but I could tell they got plumper. lol

Use Chocolate Soleil as a contour and use Melt into Spring as your blush.

Here is the actual pamphlet this look was inspired from. Beautiful! 

Overall, I LOVE this palette! It's so beautiful. The colors are stunning and I really can't say I love it enough. I hope you enjoyed this look and get inspire to try some fun colors out for this holiday season. :)

Do you have this palette? What are your favorite shades?

Urban Decay Vice 2 Makeup

Hey guys!
Today I bring you a look I created from the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. I love this palette especially for the Fall because it is filled with beautiful metallic and jewel toned shadows. I did this look a while ago but am just now getting around to posting it. I've been SUPER busy with school!! Hope you enjoy!

For the lips, I wanted them to look "popsicle" stained. I added color to the center of my lips and to give a more ombre'd affect, I took my face powder and lightly dusted around the edges.

The colors in this palette are gorgeous! :)

What kind of looks are you loving for fall?

Maybelline Matte Limited Edition Color Tattoos

Hey guys!
I recently heard about the Maybelline Limited Edition Holiday Collection that was coming out this year and saw they were releasing matte Color Tattoos. I got super exited and ran out to the drugstore or should I say drugstores. First stop, Walgreens (no luck), next stop Walgreens (again, no luck), then CVS (fail), and finally I found them at the last CVS I checked (success!!). UGH! lol I love this kind of stuff. It's like a scavenger hunt! haha. From looking at the display, it looked like they had just set them out because it was fully stocked. I grabbed one of each of the Color Tattoos and looked at the rest of the collection. The blushes seemed to shimmery/glittery for my taste so I passed, the lipsticks looked like colors I already had, so really the only other things from the collection were the eyeliners and nail polish. Both of which I also passed on getting. They just didn't seem that great to me. I thought about getting the nail polishes but figured I'd just get what I really came for and wanted- the Color Tattoos. 
Anyways, so here are some pictures of the matte Color Tattoos from the collection. Apparently, they are all MAC Paint Pot dupes! So that's great news :)

260- Matte Brown, 255- Just Beige, and 250- Nude Pink

250 Nude Pink
Nude Pink is supposedly a dupe for MAC's Painterly Paint Pot. I don't have Painterly to compare it to but from what I can tell it looks pretty dang close if not exact. 

255 Just Beige
Just Beige is a drugstore dupe for Soft Ochre Paint Pot. (Comparison swatches below)

260 Matte Brown
Matte Brown looks to be a dupe for Quite Natural Paint Pot. 

Matte Brown, Nude Pink, Just Beige
Matte Brown is a medium/dark grayish brown. Nude Pink is a cool light pink with a tinge of a grayish taupe. Just Beige is a warm soft yellow.

Just Beige and Mac Soft Ochre
Here is a picture of Maybelline's Just Beige (left) next to MAC's Soft Ochre Paint Pot (right). You can see in the pot that Maybelline is just slightly darker and a little more orange. 

Right- Just Beige, Left- Soft Ochre
Here is Just Beige and Soft Ochre side-by-side. Even though Just Beige looks like it has a tiny bit more of an orange tint to it, I don't think it's enough to really make a difference when it's on the lids. 

Overall, these Color Tattoos are a steal especially if they are all really dupes for MAC Paint Pots. Color Tattoos are about $5 while Paint Pots are $20. Sorry I don't have Painterly or Quite Natural to compare them to, but just by looking at pics online, they seem to be a pretty close match. 

Will you pick up anything from Maybelline's Gilded in Gold Holiday Collection?

Look Book: Minty Fresh Leopard

Hey everyone!
I've been pretty uninspired when it comes to fashion and clothes lately. I don't know what it is. I love the Fall and Winter seasons because I get to dress up more, but for some reason I'm not feelin' it right now. Maybe because the weather in Texas is cool one day and then blazing hot the rest of the week. I'm ready for the weather to get cooler everyday and not just every once in a while. So, in hopes of inspiring myself, and of course you guys, I decided to post an outfit of the day.
It's been a while since I've done a Look Book post, so here we go! Enjoy :)

Mint top- Target, Liquid Leggings- Wet Seal

Leopard Scarf- Krogers (yes, the grocery store! lol)

Mossimo Heels- Target (you can see them in this post too)

Hopefully you liked this outfit. I thought it was cute! I hope you are all having a wonderful day :)

What trends are you loving for Fall? What do you do when you get in a fashion funk?
