TARTE

This Blushes are AMAZING!!!.. they have a range of colors and as we all know Tarte is a Company that uses lots of natural ingriends in there Products!.. These are the new Blushes that Tarte came up with I believe this year they are called the Amazonian Clay and they claim to wear for long time.. which I will add Ive had them for a couple of months and they DO wear for a long time.. I LOVE these Blushes the Formula is SOOO soft and Highly Pigmented.. A little goes a long way specially for the Brigth ones..
I have 5 of them and I Love them all!.. I just migth have to pick the rest up.. they are that GREAT!..:D

Exposed



Swaches: L-R exposed, blissful, tipsy, natural beauty, flush
As you can see the swatches are STUNNING they are SOOO pigmented and they just glide on your cheecks!.. If I would  have to pick 2 of them to be my Favorite I would have to go with Expose and Blissful they look so Natural on me and Even when I layer them over and over I dont get that CRAZY clown look.. LOVE LOVE!!.. Expose is a Light Brown with pink undertones and it shows SO defferent on everyone on me it looks like I just Blushed I love this color It one of my Most used colors. I also like to layer my Blushes, well everything for that matter (Mascara,Foundation,LipGloss,Lipstick) I layer this one with Matahari from NARS and I LOVE the look I get and I also like to layer it with Flush and OMG!..:D
Hope you Guys enjoy the 2nd part of my Blush Collection..


Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hour..

As many of you have heard Maybelline came up with a new line called Color Tattoo.. Supposedly these cream shadows are suppose to last 24hrs on your eyes!.. I still haven't meet anyone who will last with they're makeup for 24hrs. And I haven't tried them myself for that amount of time either, so I can't tell you if they do last for the time they claim it will!.. What I CAN tell you it's that they are GREAT!!!. Soooo pigmented and such a Great range of colors!.. I got 2 of them and I he to say I'm really digging these 2 colors!..:) I got #35 Though as Taupe which is a beautiful grayish taupe color and to me looks like it has a hint of purple undertones!.. LOVE it!.. The other one I got is #24 Bad to the Bronze!.. Love the name!..lol.. This Color it's GORGEOUS!!.. It look BEAUTIFUL alone or layered underneath a taupe color or any color for that matter!.. Have you picked up any?.. And if you have let me know how you like them and what you think of them!..

BLUSH COLLECTION: NARS

So as I said in one of my previous Post I was going to do my Blush Collection, So here it goes I'm going to start with One of my FAVORITE brands NARS!.. I have to say that Nars has its names with Blushes..lol.. at 1st when my Husband would ask me whats the name of the Blush I was using I was a little timid on telling him..lol.. Nars Blushes are very Pigmented and a Little goes a LONG way no LIE!.. They have a range of colors from an everyday use to BAMM on your Face..  :D



Exhibit A


Top:Orgasm, R:Angelika
L:DeepThroat, Bottom:MataHari

Top: Madly, R:LoveJoy
L:Douceur, Bottom: Sex Appeal

As you can see I have a range of colors, I have to say that my favs are Douceur, Madly, LoveJoy, Mata Hari and Exhibit A.. I LOVE Mata Hari is a tone down purple and a little goes a long way you can pile it up if you want and get a Really Intense Purple so BEAUTIFUL..  Douceur is such a GORGEOUS color and on me it looks like a pinkie brown and on other people it has a different affect in my opinion its a MOST!!.. Now Exhibit A its such a BEAUTIFUL color and now this one you really need a VERY light hand its SUPER pigmented!!.. and it looks BEAUTIFUL on EVERYONE!..:)


CREAM BLUSHES
Top:Cactus Flower, R: Penny Lane
L:Gold Member, Bottom: Lokoum
I have 4 Cream Blushes and they are GREAT!.. I use them as a base for other Blushes or just as a Blush alone.. Gold Member its such a pretty Highlight!.. and Cactus Flower I've even used it as a lip stick/gloss and it has a really good pay off. Cream Blushes as you all know, can be used in SO many ways. and NARS Cream Blushes have a very soft and pigmented consistency..

MULTIPLE

South Beach

South Beach











I really like the idea of a Multiple, But on my face I think the shimmer its too much!.. What I use it for its for a eyeshadow base.. and on me it doesn't crease.. South Beach is like a Bronze with like a Peachy undertone..

HIGHLIGHT
Albatross
And last but certainly not least, this is the only Highlight I own, its a really BEAUTIFUL highlight and on me it looks like it has a Gold undertone.. and what I like the most is that it doesn't bring out my large pores.. Thumps up for that..:)

Well there you go!.. My NARS Blush Collection.. :D Hope you all enjoy and let me know what you think and what you want to see next.. Wish you a Happy New Year next to all your Family Members.. :D

Lets get Naked Again!..;)

So as you all know Urban Decay made a second Naked Pallet.. and as I was going to order it my Beautiful Friend Gabriela as many of you know as MAKEUPWITHGABRIELA on YouTube got it for me for Xmas!.. :D I was SO excited when I got it in the mail I couldn't wait to use it. And well here are my thoughts on the Naked 2..
I love the case that it comes in it feels more sturdy and I feel the shadows are more protected.. I didn't have a problem with the Original Naked package. But this one I feel looks more slick..;)
Naked 2
Naked Original
As most of Urban Decay pallets most of the shadows are shimmery apart from 3 that are Matt and 1 that seems matte but has just a semi satin look to it.. and the rest are shimmery and then we have the ones with chunks of glitter on them..

A you can see theres a lot of similarities on both pallets.. and I asked myself why did they put Half Baked again in the Naked 2.. I have NO idea!!.. The other thing its NO primer potion it came with a lip gloss.. I really like having the travel size primer but the lip gloss its not bad..
As you can see the colors are BEAUTIFUL but the problem I had was when applying them they really don't have that much pay off I had to re-apply 2 to 3 layers where is to the Original Naked I always applied it Once and that was it!..
As you all know this pallet comes with a double ended brush instead of a eyeliner.. I really don't like Double ended Brushes because its hard to store them.. but maybe its just me..:/
I LOVE LOVE this Brush its Super soft and well you have all the Brushes you will need to make a look.. a flat brush and a very soft crease/blending brush.. Thumps up for Urban Decay on the Brush!!..:)
And like I said the Naked 2 didn't come with a Primer it came with Naked a Lip Junkie.. The color its not SO different from other colors its like a peachy pinkie color and the smell is wonderful. It smells like Peppermint, I love peppermint!!.. :D it doesn't sting or anything its a Beautiful everyday color..:)

 My Final though: I love that Urban Decay came up with a Naked 2 but I have the say that the original was the BEST.. the color Pay off on the Naked 2 wasn't that great.. as a Makeup Junkie that I am I would of Bough it Myself either way.. I Love how the Naked 2 has Matt highlight colors.. Now the question is do you need both of them? ummm maybe Not!..lol.. But I will leave that to YOU..;)
