Pro's Picks Lip Tar Set- OCC Cosmetics

     I was first introduced to Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars, from a MAC artist that taught a makeup class at school earlier this year.  He was giving us a run down of his favorite makeup products from his kit and mentioned these amazing lip tars.  It was something I kept in mind to try in the future but just kind of forgot about it.  Then, to my happy surprise, I found that Sephora very  recently started carrying them.  Woohoo!

Influenster Relaunch

photo from influenster.com
     September 27th marked a big change in the Influenster community.  Members got access to a whole new Influenster website!  More features, exclusive access, more benefits.
      What's Influenster? Well, what could be better than a site that brings everyday people together with different brands looking to get feedback and buzz about their products?  That means, a free box of samples (VoxBox as they call it) sent to your doorstep and time to try and test each product.  Then, talk about what you did and didn't like, and spread the word.  It's free to join and only requires a bit of time to fill out a few surveys here and there and write some reviews.  I've had the privilege to take part in two VoxBoxes thus far and it's easy, and it's a legit free sampling company.  See for yourself, I've had a Love VoxBox, and a Mom VoxBox.

A Hunt for the Best LBL (Little Black Liner)

     Most everyone's familiar with a woman's best friend and wardrobe staple, the LBD (Little Black Dress). Right?  Well I am on the hunt for a different best friend and makeup staple, the LBL (Little Black Liner).  
     No look is complete without the perfect lined eyes, and black is my color of choice.  It goes with just about every shadow color, looks polished, and pulls it all together.  Don't get me wrong, I am not opposed to other colors of eyeliner, as I do have many.

Maybelline 24 HR Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow: Bad to The Bronze Review

     First, thanks for your patience in all the blog design changes that you may or may not have noticed recently.  I've been getting to know photoshop a bit better and once I think I like a design I've made, I keep  feeling like it could be better. So, then I change it.  Ever feel that way?  That it's just not quite the way you want it?  Well, hopefully the end result will be easier for you to navigate and pretty to look at.  Just wanted to say thanks for your patience with the work in progress :)
     Now on to the good stuff.  I recently won a great prize from fellow beauty blogger at Green Eyed Monster.  Thanks! Yay!  It was a box full of goodies, one being Maybelline's Color Tattoo 24 hr Cream Gel Shadow in Bad to the Bronze.  Check it out:

Sephora Favorites

     Oh, Sephora!  There are so very many reasons why I love this store!  Beauty Insiders, Free Samples, amazing products and brands, but the crowning jewel are Sephora Favorites value boxes.  They're themed boxes full of the store's most popular mini and full sized makeup products of each theme.
     My obsession with these boxes started when I bought my boyfriend the Fragrance Sampler for Him about three or so Christmas' ago.  It was filled with about 10 most popular cologne samples and a voucher for a free full sized bottle of his choosing.  He loved it!
     Then, I discovered the Sephora Favorites makeup boxes.  (Hallelujah chorus playing)  I've been obsessed ever since.  I got a few that I shared on my blog right after Christmas last year when they went on sale.  The Sephora Lashstash, Give Me Some Lip, and the Glitz and Glam.  The Lashstash was amazing and my favorite of them all !! I loved every mascara I tried, I still haven't used them all and even gave some away as gifts to friends or family.  It was an amazing value!

Breast Cancer Awareness DIY Wristlet Tutorial

     October is the official month for breast cancer awareness.  This is very near and dear to me since I've lost my own mother to this disease when I was only 16 years old.  Less than a year after being diagnosed she passed away. It was the greatest tragedy in my and my brother and sisters lives that we still struggle with to this day! 
     Early detection is so important, not just for cancer but for any illness.  You don't have to spend a ton of money on Breast Cancer Awareness merchandise, as only very small percentages go to the programs.  You can support the cause through many events such as the Race for the Cure, etc.  You can even donate directly to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  Best of all,  you can get regular mammagrams, do self breast exams, hold those you love near and dear, stay educated on your health, and help educate others.

Hello, Bombshell- October's Glam Bag

photo courtesy of ipsy.com
     I really love the theme and products from this month's Ipsy Glam Bag, "Hello, Bombshell".   This has to be my favorite Glam Bag thus far!  Four great makeup samples, and a hair product!  Not to mention, the super cute black and white chevron print bag, with red zipper and tab.  
     Ispy is formerly known as MyGlam, and is a beauty subscription program in which I am a member.  You get 4-5 beauty samples, a cosmetic bag, and great offers from participating brands all for $10 a month.  
     The website is just as great.  There is a Glam Room where you can get more info on the products, share comments, photos, and experiences, and watch tutorials using the products from your bag.  Take a look at all the great goodies I received in October's bag:

Rimmel Vinyl Jelly Gloss Lip Liner Review in Hot Spark

     I bought this lip liner in a package of two at a local grocer near me for .99 cents!  I was intrigued to see what a vinyl jelly gloss liner would actually be like, and the price just couldn't be beat.  I use Rimmel products here and there. Some I love, some I could do without, and I wasn't expecting too much seeing as how it was only .99 cents.  Check it out:

Stila Smudge Crayon Review

     One of the goodies in my September Glam Bag was a sample size Stila Smudge Crayon in black.  I am always on the hunt for great eyeliners because I feel I have yet to find my holy grail liner.  I have been using this liner for about two/three weeks now.  I've tried to use it in several different ways to really get the feel for it, smokey eye, cat eye, tight line/waterline only, etc.  Check it out:

October Sample Society Box

     I got my October Sample Society Box yesterday!  Want to see what's in it?  I am not as thrilled with this month's selection as I normally am.  I had to look up what one of the products actually was, because there wasn't any directions. Another one wasn't best suited for Fall.  Check it out to see what I mean:

Halloween Makeup Fun



     This is my eight year old daughter and we had a little fun this weekend doing a trial run for her dead/skeleton bride Halloween costume. I did add a few photo effects such as the yellow eyes and flower. What do you think?  I might do a tutorial once I get a little better.
