She was a Smart Girl ... Until She Fell in Love :(

I have been MIA for quite a bit or at best, not posting as often as I would like. When I do get in the mood to post I have been lacking in pics and detail. I'm going to make more effort on this thing or it's like, what is the point in having this ...
Lately, I've just been doing a lot of positive thinking and regrouping myself. No sob story here, but recently, I have gotten outta one tough relationship. We have parted ways and I'm beginning to look out for my best interest instead of what I thought was gonna be "our best interest". I just let love get the best of me and ignored every lil' voice I heard in the back of my mind for the past year and half. I'm rebuilding myself financially (yep, stupid me thought "oh, if I can help him pay off some things it'll help US"), and mentally (some guys are nothing but the filth that pigs roll around in @ best).
For this reason, I just haven't been on here as much and when I do get a moment to log on and post it's much of a ramble. Alright, so that is that and I'm so excited for what's up ahead and to have my little "selfish time" after trying to solve the problems of another when he couldn't even take interest in his own life.

Too Faced ... I would have to agree

I'm talking about Too Faced Shadow Insurance --- which I have been a fan of for almost a year. Well, all of a sudden it has stopped working!!! You have no clue how frustrated I am. My eyelids have never been able to keep shadow on w/out creasing until I found this stuff. Now, one eyelid in particular has had trouble creasing around the inner corner and to say it's pissing me off is putting it mildly.
What the heck happened??? (today I had it on for 4 hrs when I noticed the creasing) Any advice??? I have a sample of Urban Decay Primer Potion but haven't used it enough to decide if I like it more. I like the tube more than the "genie bottle" and that's why I originally chose TFSI over UDPP ... how do you apply your eye primer??? Perhaps I have began to rub it in too much and should just be patting it lightly on my eyelid???
For another update: Purchased MAC Studio Tech Foundation at a discount beauty store --- HATE IT! I tried it today and didn't even finish applying it to my face before I grabbed a makeup remover cloth ... I will admit, I shouldn't have bought this type of foundation but good lord this stuff was horrible for coverage and for overall look :( Perhaps I will give it another try but I have a feeling it will sit back in my makeup storage for quite a while before I decide to risk a day's worth of makeup on it again.

I Know It's Been A While But I'm Glad You Came ...

haha, if you are a Britney fan ^^that^^ should sound familar.

It's been brought to my attention that I have been lacking on blogging and I feel guilty. For me, I have to be in the mood and (of course) have something to blog about. If you saw my bathroom cabinets you would be like, "girl, get blogging!"

Back in November, I dove into NYX Cosmetics - well actually let's call it a Belly Flop w/ a HUGE SPLASH! My order was over 3lbs!!! CRAZY - especially b/c I had NEVER seen/tried NYX before only heard reviews on youtube and through blogs.

Well, I have finally put a dent in some of the products ...

NYX The Caribbean Collection 5 Color Eyeshadow Palette - I Dream of Jamaica

  • HOLY GRAIL --- flippin love this palette *** gorgeous netural/smokey eyes - you can do either with this palette

  • Application is simple and Blending is quick and easy

  • The darker shadows can be used for lining *** one of the shadows can be used as a highlighter & inner corner of eyes

  • Great Pigmentation - a lil' goes a LONGGG way

No joke - I said HOLY GRAIL!!! I have already had scary thoughts about what I would do if I were without this palette.

It goes w/out saying for me that IF I REVIEW SHADOWS WITH RAVE REVIEWS --- Staying Power is Great!!! *** I ALWAYS USE PRIMER before applying shadow so staying power based on the shadow alone I NEVER CONSIDER

***Pics to come!!!
