Coastal Scents 88 Palette

YAY!!!! My Coastal Scents 88 Palette (the regular NOT shimmer) came!! Actually it came while I was away apartment shopping in Sask! I ordered it last monday, and it came on thursday, from Florida to BC Canada..4 Days! So Impressed!! And it came all in one piece, well packaged and all that!!!

As for my thoughts! I love it!! Most of the shadows are matte texture, only a few have a small amount of sparkleness to them. They have great color pay off for the price for sure...I personally dont believe that they are quite as high quality as MAC's as some people have said in regards to color pay off and blendability...they arent bad by any means, just not quite up to MAC's par!! They are pretty tiny, Id say 4 of them probably make up a MAC shadow. Some colors blend better then other, but overall its good quality for the price you pay!!
I was a little intimidated by it once I first recieved it, it took me a few was just so prettyful I didnt want to wreck it! lol! It was alot of fun when I dove in though!! Many colorful looks will come soon!!!
If anyone wants swatches or what not I will be happy to do them for specific colors in the palette!! Maybe I will just do some eventually anyways!!
Thats it thats all!!

NYX Haul

So blogger and I are fighting today!! I thought my page was looking to busy with the bg and the image, so I opted for a plain white background (Im to lazy to go look for a new one lol) . But now it will not let me enter in hex codes to change my font color!! Grrr!!

Anyways, while grocery shopping with the maja today, I bought some NYX stuff. I had previously only ever had the White & Black eyeshadow (both which I love). I saw the lashes and thought they were neat so I bought a few to try! Same with the Jumbo stick, was looking for the white but it was sold out, so I opted for others!!

The collective haul pic of the goods!

I forgot to take single pics of the shadows, but the left hand one in the pic above is 690 Orange and the right hand one is 54 Cherry, below are swatches. Cherry on top, Orange on the bottom. I saw a look I wanted to try of my friend at a fashion show thats why I chose these colors!

104 Sweetheart Lipgloss and below it on my lips.




Jumbo Pencils

615 Slade then 614 Lavender

Jumbo Pencil Swatches Slade on top Lavender on bottom!

First impressions are I love how smooth the pencils go on, simply effortless!!! The eyeshadow colors were exactly what I was looking for, and I really believe they have a quality color payoff and you cant beat the price!! I bought the lipgloss simply just to try it out, I dont have any neautral shades in this style so I thats why i picked the color. Its very creamy and not super sticky feeling, and smells yummy!
The lashes Im egar to try out. They looked neat thats why i grabbed them. Will try them out soon and post pics!!!

Is spring on its way?!?

Its soooooooo nice out today!! The suns shining, the snows melting, I went outside without a jacket and wasnt cold at all!! Ahhhh, soo nice! I'm definately ready for spring!!!
Ive lost/misplaced the cable to upload pics from my own camera somewhere in my house (I hope anyways)! Ive been trying to get things organized for moving and it's been put somewhere. I borrowed my boyfreinds camera today to take a picture of the look I did. Nothing super fancy, just a simple day look. I was viewing a freinds pics on facebook of her trip in Austrailia, and I thought I would do something kinda with a beach feeling'ish (think sand an water)! I plan on doing something like this again alot more dramatic...this is very much a simple look!

Hopefully tomorrow I will hunt down that cord, today I really dont feeling like it. Im also contemplating what I want to buy at my MAC visit coming up later this week when I go to Sask!!

Blahh...winters getting to me

Im definately suffering from seasonal depression! Im SOOOOOO jelous of all my freinds who have gone on vacation! Everyones facebook albums are pictures of them in tropical paradise...Cancun, Cuba, Jamaica, The Dominican, Cabo...Im dropping mad hints to the boyfriend lol! That is what inspired my look yesterday, it was just grey and gloomy out, so I thought Id mimic that with eyeshadow.
Im not working right now, I had to quit my job when I got really sick and was in the hospital, and havent bothered finding a new one because were moving the end of March (that blog will come soon). So I havent been doing a whole lot with my time, and now I've found myself in this rut of un-motivation and lack of inspiration! How do you get out of ruts when your in them??

Here are the pics from yesterdays grey day that are up on Temptalia.

Hair..before,after and extensions!!!

Im back from my little trip with the BF!! Had sooo much fun at the hockey game!! I actually didnt buy much at all while I was there, makeup or clothes wise...I was pretty dissapointed! I think the fact I was super hung over had something to do with it, I just wasnt into the shopping thing!! But I will post what I did buy soon! How many other are Sephora Beauty Insiders or whatever. I got talked into getting another card for my wallet, but Im curious if anyone has reaped any benefits from it??
Anywho, I got my hair done a few weeks ago, and never took after shots until recently so I thought I would start by posting them! Excuse the stupid faces I am making well as the roundness of my face...most people dont notice it at all, but its a side affect called 'Moon Face' caused by the medication Im on. Enjoy!!

The Before Shot (eg of stupid faces I make...its so hot isnt it?! lol)

After Shots (basically shorter and darker)

Then a shot with my clip in extensions.

So here I go again starting this blog, after all my past enteries vanished! Thank goodness I didnt have tons of tons of pictures and enteries, but it was something. Im taking it as a chance to have a fresh start!! This is my year of fresh starts I believe!! So I took the time to play around and create a prettyful title graphic for my "new blog" , and now I can start making actual enteries!!!
I do (still) have tons of pictures of looks and stuff to post! And a ton of time on my hands to create some new looks and such! This year so far has been pretty crazy, and its turning out to be pretty exciting too!
So stay tuned for lots more to come, and I actually mean it this time!!!
