Hey again! So I'm going to close my recent poll and give the results early because I've gotten a decent amount of votes and I'm very impatient ;)


What is your favorite makeup brand?

MAC 66% (14 votes)
Nars 4% (1 vote)
Chanel 4% (1 vote)
NYX 9% (2 votes)
Clinique 0%
Spell Cosmetics 0%
Other 14% (3 votes)

Its obvious that MAC won! A new poll is up and don't forget to vote!


Go check out my Zoya MatteVelvet post down there

Zoya MatteVelvet Nail Polish

Lately pretty much every nail polish brand is coming out with matte nail polishes, in my recent post I blogged about OPI coming out with matte polishes too. Zoya's MatteVelvet comes in three colors:
Loredana (ZP498) - all out glam gray
Dovima (ZP499) - striking black

Posh (ZP500) - pinup pretty deep red

Description on the website:
"The Zoya MatteVelvet collection brings back this retro look with an updated Limited Edition collection of three gloss free hues. Unique matte shimmer formula makes them ultra-wearable and uber-stylish!"

The red looks pretty cute, i might buy it but we'll see. The OPI mattes look better to me though. How about you? Planning to buy anything from this collection? Feedback in the commenting box!


P.S. Only 8 (or nine, have to check) more days until I'm in sunny California! Yay! :)

OPI Matte Collection

Lately matte nails have been popping up everywhere so I'm going to give you a sneak peek of what is coming up! This will be available in July. Picture from Temptalia.
  • Alpine Snow
  • Gargantuan Green Grape
  • La Paz-itively Hot
  • Lincoln Park After Dark
  • Russian Navy
  • You Don’t Know Jacques!
Hope you enjoy!

P.S. To clear up all the questions: No, these are not new colors. They are the same nail polishes except in matte. It does not last as long as the original OPI nail polish but I still think they're gorgeous.

MAC Graphic Garden

I found this picture from Temptalia and I love it! I'm definitely excited for it how about you? I will do a follow up post to this when it comes out because there is obviously not a lot to say about this collection since it hasn't come out yet. One thing I can say though is that the eyeshadow palette looks gorgeous. Hopefully MAC won't disapoint us with this collection :) This collection is launching in July at Nordstrom's. Just wanted to give you a little sneak peek!

Attention All Makeup Addicts: I Want Your Feedback!

Hey everyone! Well, I've had this blog for a few months now and I think its time for a little change. Don't worry I'm not going anywhere but I want you (my followers/readers) to tell me what I could do to improve my blog. Some examples are:
What I need to change or add
My layout and if I should add pictures, designs, etc.
Should I blog more often or less
Tell me what you like and dislike about my blog
Should I blog about other things or stick with the topics I have right now
You don't have to do all of that but at least do one, you get the idea. Please leave your feedback in the commenting box. I'm not afraid of criticism, meaning I won't cry my eyes out if you say I should change something but that doesn't mean you get to yell at me :) I want your honest opinion.

Thanks everyone!

P.S. Isn't the picture so cute ;)

Sephora/MAC Haul

Hello again! I finally had time to put up my haul! Yay! :) I bought all of this about a week ago I think when Sephora had the Beauty Insiders sale. So here is what I got:

1.) MAC's Paint Pot in Painterly. In the second picture: It is the one in the 3rd row, second last. I like to use this as a base sort of. It is a light creamy nude beige-ish color. US $16.50

2.) MAC's Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked. It is a rich brunette brown color. Defines my eyebrows very well. I couldn't find a picture but if you click on the link above it will show you the eyebrow penicil in that shade. US $14.50

3.) MAC's Dazzleglass from the Double Dazzle Collection in Baby Sparks.
It is a pale pink with violet pearl. Not much color but the Dazzleglasses are so sparkly though and you all know I love anything that involves glitter. US $18.00

4.) MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish from the Sugarsweet Collection in Refined. It is a tan/peach/coral melange. Perfect bronzer and it gives your face a nice glow. I couldn't find an exact picture so just click on the link above. You MUST MUST MUST get this! This is the PERFECT highlighter ever and it compliments my skin tone! Probably one of my favorite products ever! US $27.00

5.) MAC's Eye Shadow in Moon's Reflection. It is a blue with white pearl (Veluxe Pearl). Very nice color. US $14.50

6.) MAC's Eye Shadow in Naked Lunch. This is a back up because I love it so much! It is a minimal pink with shimmer (frost). US $14.50

MAC Eye Shadow Frost

7.) MAC's Lip Conditioner SPF 15 from the Hello Kitty Collection in Pink Fish. This is also a backup and I love it! Right now this is my substitute for the Tendertones! Argh, I'm waiting for the Tendertones to be repromoted and buy them all! :) It is a soft neutral pink. Isn't the packaging SO cute? US $14.50

8.) Sephora Brand Microfiber Headband Description on website: "The Sephora Headband is made of Aquitex, a super absorbent material woven from ultra-fine microfibers that wick moisture away from skin more thoroughly than other fabrics. This adjustable headband gently holds hair in place while cleansing the skin or applying makeup."US $11.00
Microfiber Headband

9.) Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin. My lids are super oily so this is perfect! US $17.00 Site description:
"What it is:
A best-selling eyeshadow primer potion in a shimmering champagne color.
What it does:
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin combines incredible staying power with a shimmering champagne hue that complements almost any eyeshadow. This two-in-one beauty miracle can be worn alone to give eyes just a hint of tint for when you're in a hurry or in need of that "no makeup" look.
What else you need to know:
It also makes a great highlighter: apply from lash line to crease and then apply your shadow on the lid only."

QUICK TIP: If you have the Primer Potion with the original tip then once you can't get any more product out take a knife and cut it in half. You will be surprised at how much of the product is left in there. Take a smaller knife and scoop all of it out and store it in a MAC empty pigment container or any other container you have lying around. Now if you have the new (and improved!) Primer Potion with the slanted tip then you don't have to do all of that. Hope this helped you!
Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin

Thats all I have (for now!)

P.S. Don't forget to look at the post underneath this! Hint: Giveaway coming soon!

Gilt: My New Favorite Website! Plus haul!
You all know that I love to splurge on stuff and save at the same time. Now, that is completely easy to do. I found this out from Temptalia. As the title says my new favorite website to splurge on is Gilt it is similar to Hautelook and ideeli (I mentioned them in previous posts.) but they have better stuff and another thing I love- the "waiting list"! I hate waiting and I am definitely impatient but the thing I love about their "waiting list" is that if something I want is sold out I can enter in the waiting list and I still might be able to buy it. So head on over to Gilt and start shopping! The Marc Jacobs sale is ending at midnight so go buy something now! :)
By the way the link above is an invite-link so I could tell you guys too. Gilt is an invite-only website so if you don't already have an account then that link up there is perfect.


P.S. The long awaited haul post will be up later today! I promise :)

The pictures above are the purses that I bought. Which one do you like the best? Hint: The purse that gets the most "likes" will be given away in a contest coming up when I reach 20 or 30 followers on my blog!Just comment in the commenting box!
