Half Skeleton Halloween Makeup

Happy early Halloween!

What are you going to be for Halloween this year? I decided that I wanted to play around with more makeup and went with doing a skeleton on half of my face. I also did the same look on my boyfriend and although it turned out way better on him (it's so much easier doing makeup on someone else...) I am really happy with how it turned out overall! What do you think?

i would love to know what you are doing for Halloween!! :)

Brighten your day with Barry M!

         Name: Lip Paints
         Brand: Barry M 
         Colors: 54 - Peach & 146 - Dolly Pink
         Pricing: £4.49
         Availability: UK drugstores, online at

Opaque, bright colors
Great wearing and staying power
Sleek packaging
Relatively inexpensive

Can be drying
Accentuates dry cracks on lips
May leave a stain on lips
Matte packaging attracts fingerprints

These lippies have great pigmentation and are nice additions to your collection, but I felt like they needed some effort to make them work. They definitely aren't the type you grab as you hurry out the door. Since these are fairly drying, I would highly recommend you apply lip balm prior to the lipstick itself and possibly add a gloss over top to smooth things over.

What do you think? Have you tried these lip paints before?

I am back!

and here to hopefully stay

my baby Sumo :)

I have missed you all so much! I know its been almost a year since I've posted but well, life's been a bit crazy and I'll just leave it at that. Thanks a million to those who have held on through this dry spell and I promise not to let you all down again! :)

Now that I am back, I plan on bringing a lot more into my blog, posting not only more makeup product reviews and swatches, but also adding a touch of fashion, outfits, style and a bit of my everyday life. For now, here is a little snapshot of what my life consisted of during this past week or so...


I will be back with an actual post soon! :) Until then, have a wonderful day!

Gold & Silver Nails

I miss the holidays already...

So i decided to give my nails a slight festive hint to them by using some silver and gold glitter polishes.
I still wanted to keep my nails simple and clean, so i started off with a light pink base (Forever 21 love & beauty). I then lined the tips of my nails with half silver and half gold (U&A polishes) The gold gave a more warm tone to the overall effect and although it may not be really obvious, i liked the ending result.

Sephora Birthday Gift

Happy Birthday to... Me !

I recently stopped by Sephora to pick up my birthday gift and was so amazed to find out what this year's birthday gift was! Last year, i had gotten the philosophy birthday body wash and although it was nice to use once in awhile, i wouldnt say that it got me all too excited..

However, just wait until you hear what this year has to offer... 

A Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Duo!!

I have actually been wanting to purchase the original fresh sugar lip treatment for a long time now. However, i never could really justify the price and always left empty handed. Imagine my surprise when i found that i was the owner of TWO of these! One is the normal lip treatment whereas the other is slightly tinted with a rose color. Note, these are mini sizes and only have 2.2g in each. I think they are absolutely adorable!

After trying these out, i can happily say that i am in love and will 100% re-purchase when i run out. These smell heavenly! like fresh lemon pie.. and are so smooth on the lips you wont believe it! The Sugar Rose (tinted lip treatment) has a very subtle tint, one that's not very noticeable at all. However, if you are looking for even just a slight bit of color on your lips to warm your face, this would be nice to have.

Overall, i am very happy this year with my birthday gift. Thanks so much Sephora :) You sure know how to make a girl smile!

Best of 2011 - Face

and the award goes to...

Moisturizers & Base Products

1. Origins VitaZing SPF 15

After using this for a month or so, i found that my skin was much smoother and more even. I love the color changing magic, and i love the fact that it helps even out my skin without clogging any pores. Now, i only use this face product in the mornings, completely skipping foundation!

2. Clinique Moisture Surge - Extended Thirst Relief

For those needing an extra hydrating boost in the winter, this is the product you need! Not to be used as just a moisturizer, but as a final step to your skincare regime, this product helps protect and seal in your moisture keeping it safe from the pollutants and rough winds. This seriously makes my skin baby soft and keeps it nice and fresh during the winter season.

3. Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse

This is my HG skin primer. Using this under any foundation is bound to make it last forever and ever. This primer is very unique in that it comes in a mousse form just like your hair mousse would! THe result is a very light coat that gets absorbed very quickly. Plus, the one i have is also tinted so it also helps even out your skin tone.


1. Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation

For days & nights out when i want a little extra coverage, i go to my trusty MUFE foundation. This one is very light and a tad liquidy giving a nice refreshing hydrating feeling. Although this may be only light-medium coverage, i love how this feels and it definitely lasts all night long!

2. MAC MSF Natural

This is the perfect finish in that it helps even out my skin while absorbing all theexcess oils and keeping my skin nice and matte. I use a light dusting of this daily after my Origins VitaZing to give a little more coverage.

Blushes & Bronzers & Highlighters

1. L'oreal True Match in Innocent Flush

This is my favourite matte blush. Its hard to find a really good matte drugstore blush, but this is it guys! Super pigmented and super blendable, i really cant say anything bad about this blush! the texture is so soft and just a light tap of a brush picks up enough product because you only need so little to create such a gorgeous flush.

2. Hard Candy's Blush in Honeymoon

This might be more of a highlighter to most but for some it can pass as a blush. I like to use this on the tops of my cheekbones because it gives the most gorgeous soft glow.

3. Annabelle's Zebra Bronzing Powder

I love this bronzer because it is really subtle but does its job well. It has some fine glitter which is very flattering on the skin. I love using this to contour my cheekbones as well as my temples because it gives a very natural and soft edge.


and that's it for face products! Let me know if you have tried out some of these products before and what you think! Of if you know of any better ones because im always up for trying something new! :D Have a good day everyone!

P.S. i fixed the link to the form for giveaway #2. the form should also appear on the post now. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes!
