Too Faced: Pretty Rebel (Swatches)

I purchased this palette about a month or more ago. I have used the lighter / brown shades for a look so far but still want to play around with the other colors. I initially bought this palette for the colors, especially the hot pink because it was pretty unique. Overall, I really like the formulation of the shadows however some of the lighter and darker shades were a little powdery when I did the swatches. Also, I wish the lighter shades were a bit more pigmented but it is still a nice palette. Do any of you have this palette? What are your opinions on it? 

Swatches are after the jump...

Fall Nails: Metro Chic

Fall has officially arrived and I wanted to do my nails a more fall appropiate color. So I decided to go with Sephora by OPI in Metro Chic and for my accent I chose Disco Dolls by Nicole (the Kardashian collection). What are your guys' fave fall nail combos?

Project "No Buy" September 2013

Okay! This is going to be really really hard for me but I am going to try project "No Buy" for the month of September. If it works then I will extend into November. I really need to finish up some of the products I currently have in my collection. Some rules / steps I am going to follow in September:

  1. Organize the make-up I currently have so its easier to access and use
  2. Shop my stash - this means use up what I already have
  3. Try to stay away from Sephora & Drugstores (this is going to be hard)
  4. Haircare can be bought if I am out of what I am currently using
Does anyone have any tips they would like to share? I could use the support :) Wish me luck!

Update (September 16, 2013): Half way through the month and I can happily report I have not purchased a singe make-up item. However, the new MAC RiRi collection and Urban Decay collections are making it very difficult to stay on course!

August 2013 Favourites

It is August favourites time! Also, I have updated the layout for this blog :) let me know what you guys think!

These are a few of the products that I have been loving and it includes both drugstore & higher end products.

  • Beauty Blender  - I finally gave in and bought this little item and OMG! It is amazing and way better than the "dupes" I had bought. I find that this tool is great for applying a variety of different products.
  • Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation Stick - Love this for quick morning coverage
  • MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark - This is my second one and I am still in love with it
  • MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Superb - A limited edition item but sometimes it gets re-promoted
  • MAC Pressed Pigment in Summer Honey - I believe this was part of a recent collection and it is so pretty!
  • Cover Girl lipstick in Fairytale - a lovely pink and the product is great and non-drying on the lips
  • NARS Deep Throat Blush - This has been one of my fave blushes for a long time and I started using it again for the month of August
  • Loreal Voluminous Full Definition Mascara - Love love love! That is all... lol
These have been some of my most loved products for August. I can't believe Summer is coming to an end. I am not ready for the rain :( Let me know some of your faves and if you are looking forward to Fall.
