Shy Girl...

Since I missplaced my MAC mineralize skin finish and I've been without a setting powder ever since (last Tuesday) anyway I dropped by Sephora today and bought Too Faced Primed and Poreless finishing veil. The Too Faced brand cost $28 and is 0.16 oz and MAC cost $29 and is 0.35 oz.

I also bought a Stila lip glaze trio and I took my MAC empties and got MAC Shy Girl lipstick

Swatches of the lip products

The large swatch is Shy Girl creamsheen finish. From top to bottom-Stila Pinata, kitten, and maraca.
Oh! And I almost forgot...I bought Wet n Wild's coverAll concealer in light 804. At $.99 it doesnt hurt to try it out. :)

Ootd Casual Sunday

My husband and I will be heading out to Pete's Coffee & Tea later this evening, it's something we do pretty often and we both enjoy :) my husband is very artistic as well as creative. He writes me love poems... <3 what we do is we order a cup of coffee and discuss the writing. I love the time I get to spend with him especially this that might seem so insignificant to others but to me is one of my most favorite and sweet ways to spend my Sunday. This is what I'll be wearing later on...

Off the shoulder striped blouse w/jeggings and a pair of flats.

As for accessories I'll be wearing a bow leather bracelet the pictures make it look really bright, but I promise it complements my blouse because it's not as dark-it's a cross between coral, dusty rose and beige :) and 2 cream colored bangles and my vintage earrings...

Update on Suave Shampoo and Conditioner

I been using this for 7 days now and I've stopped using the shampoo because the minute I wash my hair with it my hair feels dry, brittle and super rough. Even after following with the conditioner it doesn't feel as soft as it did when I first began to use the two together...As of now I will continue to use the conditioner but will pass on the shampoo.

Take a Deep Breath...

I love Philosophy's new moisturizer In just 5 days I've already noticed a difference in my skin! It's a gel, so it's light-perfect to wear under makeup. I've noticed my skin looks waaay more nourished and hydrated than before and not one bit flaky! You can buy this at your Philosophy counter or Sephora for $30.00

Suave shampoo and conditioner

These products may not work as well as high-end brands but they still deliver... At $3.97 a bottle not only are they a bargain but they left my hair smooth, shiny, tangle free, and smelling sweet. The smell reminded me of Jasmine flowers.

I love that the shampoo has Gold shimmer :)
Pros: smoothes, adds shine, detangles, smells fab!
Cons: consistency of the shampoo is runny (as you can tell in the picture above) not 100% sulfate free.

Favorite Lip Balm

I got this as a gift and have been using it daily! I love that it goes on smooth, and does not have a waxy feel to it. The thing that I don't like is that it might melt if I leave it in my car since it looks like it's Vaseline in stick form.

Pros: smooth, leaves lips with a just the right amount of shine, the scent is a combination of sugar and lemon. Twist on/off cap, packaging is metal like material. Spf 15
Cons: possible melting of product if left in your car or in direct sunlight. Not enough product in a tube. Becomes addicting!! I've noticed I reach for it more often than my other lip balm due to the fact that I crave the moisture it provides

Birthday Gift

Kat Von D. Saint palette, Nars lipstick in Schiap and Urban Decay setting spray and primer duo. If you've never tried Kat Von D's eyeshadow I suggest you head over to Sephora... :) not only are her eyeshadows extremely pigmented, they're super smooth and creamy. They feel like butter! I've yet to try the Urban Decay setting spray...hope it keeps my makeup intact :)

True Romance Eyeshadow palette. Very wearable everyday neutrals.

Schiap-semi-matte, bright Pink no shimmer. It looks great with black winged liner ;)

Bought these bracelets at Charlotte Russe and forever21 earlier today.
