Was there inspiration for this look? Maybe...
A turquoise-blue rectangular box with a white bow, 
with something I can wear around my neck inside...lol
Does that sound like a Tiffany's box?! hmm...
Anyway, that wasn't really my inspiration.

Viva Glam Gaga 2

I love the new shade MAC created for Lady Gaga! I wasn't happy with the first Gaga lipstick that came out last year, along with the Cyndi Lauper one. Why? I'm not a huuuge fan of Satin finish lipsticks. With the Amplified finish they came out this year, it was a must have for me! This lipstick reminds me of one of my other favorite lipsticks from MAC Myth. Below is a swatch of the two next to each other.
I love both so don't ask me which one I think is better, because its a definite tie! :) If you haven't already bought the Viva Glam Gaga 2, go out and buy it! All proceeds go to the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund to help support people living with HIV/AIDS.
My look with the Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick & Lipglass!! :)

Eyeliner: MAC's Penultimate eye liner in Rapidblack
Bottom lash line: MAC's khol power eye pencil in Feline


Urban Decay's Naked Palette

After much anticipation, I finally got my UD Naked palette in the mail last week! I've been wanting this palette FOREVERRR! And because of its high demand last year it was hard to get my hands on one! I was on the mailing list for updates, I checked Sephora every so now and then to see if it finally came back in stock...and NOTHING! Nothing for months! This palette was back ordered even when I purchased it this past month, so its obvious that this is one palette you cant miss out on!

When this palette first came out they offered a double-ended eyeliner featuring their 24/7 liners in Zero (jet black) and Whiskey (medium brown). Unfortunately, because of its popularity the duo-liner was discontinued because it was slowing down production. They couldn't make enough in time for all the orders that were being placed, so they replaced it with something much easier to produce the Good Karma eyeshadow brush.

This palette has 12 neutrals shades that include shimmer and matte finishes. I'm a big fan of Urban Decay so when they mentioned I'd get 5 new shades with this thing I was definitely buying it!

Eye Shadows from left to right:
Virgin (nude satin)
Sin (champagne shimmer)
Naked (buff matte)
Sidecar (beige sparkle)
Buck (brown matte)
Half Baked (bronze)
Smog (golden brown shimmer)
Darkhorse (bronze-plum shimmer)
Toasted (taupe-bronze) 
Hustle (mocha shimmer),
Creep (near-black metallic)
Gunmetal (dark grey metallic)

This palette also includes an open fold mirror, Good Karma eyeshadow brush, and travel size Primer Potion (one of my favs!) in original formula.

This is the perfect palette to travel with, great colors for work environments, comes with a brush to add to your collection...its just overall a great palette to have!

Get this at Urban Decay for only $48.00 or at Sephora

Hurry and Get your NAKED palette!!!

Model in a Bottle: Duo Lip Conditioner and Lipstick Sealer

This was one of the many products I purchased at
 this years Makeup Show LA. 
I visited the Model in a Bottle booth and this was one 
of the products I was dying to try. 
Why you ask? I'll give you an example...
Have you ever had an issue when you apply a red lipstick and towards the middle of the day it starts to bleed out of your lip line?!
 With this product you won't look like a hot mess! 
I tried it and survived the entire day without any bleeding or
 cracks seeping through my lip line.
I actually skipped the conditioning step the first time
 I tried it but it conditions the lips well. 
(don't miss this step! its what makes your lips look healthy and smooth)
After applying my lip liner and lipstick, I applied the sealer. I felt a tiny sting after applying the sealer to the lining of my lips,
 but then again I do have sensitive skin. :-/
 I was fine after that one second and no irritation occurred.
I recommend this product :)

Before and After pics are coming soon!!
