MAC Lipsticks: Goddess of the Sea, Viva Glam Rihanna, Heroine & more! (June 2014 Haul)

hey u! so before i get started, i just need to vent. this morning i went to the MAC store to buy a few MAC lipsticks from the Kelly Osbourne Collection BUT by the time i arrived, they were all sold out! i was sooo bummed out! it totally ruined my morning. i know they're just lipsticks but still... anyhow, after a while, i got over it.
so today's post will be on my most recent MAC lipstick purchases. yes, it's HAUL time!
i bought a few of them about 4 months ago while the rest i purchased within the past month or so. 

Swatches: (L-R: Fresh Moroccan, Shanghai Spice, Heroine, Sushi Kiss, Viva Glam Rihanna, Sweet & Sour, Dreaming Dahlia, Razzledazzler, and Goddess of the Sea.) 

i know i kinda splurged a little but since i was pregnant i decided to treat myself before my baby arrived bcuz i knew that once she was born, all of my funds would go towards her and only her. but that's alright bcuz my baby girl is sooo worth it! hands down!  =) 
and what can i say about the MAC lipsticks... they're great! i love them all. i'm definitely content with the variety of colors that i chose bcuz i have a different shade for each day/mood, lol.
believe it or not, there are still a few MAC lipsticks that i need to get my hands on! too many to name.
so what are your favorite MAC lipsticks? which would you recommend?
once again, thanks for stopping by! until next time...

I'm Back! (It's A Girl!)

hey u! well, it's been a while since i last posted on my blog. a lot has happened in my life, since my last post on July 2013. but the most important change in my life was finding out i was pregnant! i am happy and proud to say that i am now the mother of a beautiful little princess!!! my daughter was born on cinco de mayo. she has given my life a whole new meaning! she is my reason for living! i can't begin to describe how i feel when i look into her gorgeous little eyes! i just love her sooo much!!! i thank God for blessing me with her little soul!

since i love Hello Kitty, i've decided to make her crib bedding, and as much decor & toys, her theme. our room is filled with Hello Kitty's everywhere! i love it! my husband, on the other hand, isn't as thrilled, lol. but that's ok bcuz he loves his little princess and would want to please her as much as possible.
but now that i'm somewhat returning to my regular routine, i will start posting more on my blog. or at least i plan to, lol. it all depends on my baby girl bcuz she comes first! but i would also like to take advantage of my time off work since i'm on maternity leave until August 2014. with that being said, i plan to post my first blog post of 2014, tomorrow, after i make a little purchase from MAC. so until then, thanks for stopping by!

5-3-13 EOTD - Wet 'n Wild I Heart Matte palette

hey u! so today's Eye Of The Day was originally created this past Friday, May 3rd 2013, with my Wet 'n Wild I Heart Matte palette. this palette happens to be, by far, my favorite Wet 'n Wild palette!  =)

for this eye makeup look i only used three eyeshadows from the I Heart Matte palette by Wet 'n Wild. the creamy eyeshadow, the peachy eyeshadow and the brown eyeshadow. then i applied my black eyeliner by Jordana and some falsies as well. i also applied a white eyeliner to my waterline, also by Jordana. i'm really loving drugstore makeup! great quality at a reasonable price. you can't beat that! until next time...

Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in 40 Orange Attitude

hey u! so since i absolutely LOVE lipsticks, lip balms and any other lip products, i decided to try out Maybelline's Color Whisper lip colors in 40 Orange Attitude.  =)  

the packaging for these lip colors is super cute. (i'm definitely a sucker for cute packaging!)

the Maybelline website says:
"Pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel. No heavy waxes or oils. Soft, sexy gel-color."

this color is somewhat reminiscent of the Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti, in my opinion, just a little more sheerer. but you can always build up the intensity to your liking.

i purchased this Maybelline Color Whisper at my local CVS. since i bought it a few weeks ago i don't remember how much it cost, sorry guys! but you can always go online to check prices and any special offers that may be available! CVS always has great deals! =) i love CVS! i've been shopping at CVS a lot, for the past two months or so, thanks to their extrabucks rewards! AND their return policy is amazing!  =)
until next time... thanks for stopping by!

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids lipstick in 885 Vibrant Mandarin

hey u! so a few weeks ago i jumped on the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids lipstick bandwagon.  =)  

the lip color i decided to try was 885 Vibrant Mandarin.  

the Maybelline website says: "Now bright goes gorgeous, never garish. Brighter color from our exclusive vivid pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar."  

and i definitely agree with Maybelline's description. this lipstick, 885, is not only pigmented but absolutely gorgeous too! and it's also super creamy.  =)  

i'm beyond excited to try more of these amazing lipsticks! i think the next one on my list might be 880 Electric Orange or maybe 870 Shocking Coral. not sure yet but i guess we'll see so stay tuned.  
until next time... thanks for stopping by!

4-3-13 EOTD - Wet 'n Wild Shimmer The Night Away palette

hey u! so today's Eye Of The Day was created with the Wet 'n Wild Shimmer The Night Away palette. this Wet 'n Wild collection contains 3 limited edition 8 pan palettes, which was released last Fall '12. but i only purchased this palette because of the purple/lilac shades!  =)

for this look, i only used 3 out of the 8 eyeshadows in this 8 pan palette: white, fuchsia, and purple. before applying the purple eyeshadow on my lid, i first applied painted purple color tattoo as a base. then i used the fuchsia eyeshadow to blend out the outer edges of the purple eyeshadow. finally, i used the white eyeshadow to highlight my tear duct. i lined my eye with the Jordana liquid eyeliner before applying my Khroma Beauty eyelashes, which i'm totally loving! i finished up this look by applying a white eyeliner, by Jordana, on my waterline. i must say i'm loving all my Wet 'n Wild palettes! i still have a few more that i will be using for future EOTD posts so stay tuned!
until next time... thanks for stopping by!
