Pigments Galore!!


So ever since I got interested in MAC cosmetics, I discovered pigments! I've always wanted to try them, but was kinda scared since I didn't know how to use them or apply them. Also, that whole jar was kinda intimidated because it was just soo much. But ever since I bought my first jar, I never turned back. I am still collecting and trying to find discontinued and rare ones.
Pigments are highly pigmented and are loose powder. MAC has a variety of color and uses. Some are Matte, some are more shimmery, and others are glittery. I personally love the shimmery ones. Most of these pigments can be used on eyes, lips, face, and body. I love to use them as eyeshadows and highlighters on my cheeks. Pigments takes some practice to apply and not make a mess of it. But overall, I love them!!
I have over 30 colors in a short span of 4 months. I want more and more!! They can be a little messy and harder to apply, but they just look so lovely in their jars. I am still collecting and giving them out!....I've been selling some samples for other lovely ladies, and if any one is interested, please don't hesitate to let me know!!.

here are my colors: Jardin Aires, Revved UP, Melon, Tan, Chocolate Brown, Pink Opal, Gold Dusk, Dark Soul, Sunpepper, Copper Sparkle, Goldner's Green, Golden Olive, Aire-de-blu, Entremauve, Apricot Pink, Shimmertime, Copperclast, Night Light, Frost, Pastorle, Blue, Smoke Signals, Subtle, Goldenaire

Here are some pictures too! (these are just some!)

I'm not ashamed to say that I am blushing NARS!! today!!....
I ordered two Nars blushes from a buddy on one of the boards that I participate in. It was at an awesome price and I absolutely love them. Too! bad she didn't have NARS Orgasm. (p.s. that's what I want for CHRISTMAS!:) Anyways, the two colors that I got were Amour and Taos. I wasn't so sure about Taos because it was looking a little reddish in the picture, and wasn't sure if that would compliment me, but I gave it a go. I received this past weekend!!

Here are my ratings:

Price:5 (for what I got it for)
Packaging: 4

I've tried many blushes throughout my makeup life, from drugstore to highend...and this beats many of them. I love Amour, and how it gives me a natural glow! Amour is a peachy-pink color, which is great for my color skin. Taos on the other hand, is a reddish glow!! which does kinda work out on my skin. It gives me more blush color and more like a "I got pinched kinda glow!", very nice though, as long as I don't put too much! I want to buy some more...but gotta wait for
christmas, I guess!! pics coming soon! each retails for: $25.00

Jane, oh, Jane!!!

JANE Cosmetics!! HAUL!!!

I've never tried their makeup before and never had the urge to go and get some, but the other day, I guess I was in the mood to try something new. Once in awhile, I'll hear something good about Jane...but not much. So on that particular day, I went to my local walgreens because they had a Rimmel buy one get one free week, to my surprise Jane had one too. So instead of buying Rimmel, I came out with Jane. Do you want to know what my tab was? It was just $3 for the two eyeshadows...whoo yeah!! score for me!!...The colors I got were Hi Ho Silver and a duo in Browny Points/Hazelnut. I absolutely love how pigmented they are. The silver pot comes one very clean and vibrant. I'm in love with the brown points, because it's soo pigmented and brown. Hazelnut is very frost like and pretty. Overall, I liked what I bought and maybe I'll take another trip down the Walgreens aisle again!!

Here are some swatches: (hazelnut doesn't really show, it's frost)

Today, I headed to a local CCO (well more like 30mins away) see if I could snag a deal with MAC cosmetics.... and believe it or not, I DID!!!

What's a CCO? It stands for Cosmetics Company Outlet
I went to a local Premium Outlet to find it. CCO's are found almost everywhere in an outlet mall shopping center.

CCOs have discount (say like 30%) off High End Cosmetics.
Examples are MAC !!!, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Orgins, Bobbi Brown, and Prescriptives. Basically the Estee Lauder company.
Discontinued and overstocked are often found in those stores.

Like today!! I bought a whole bunch of MAC pigments, Barbie collection eyeshadows, and C shock that's a steal for me who missed out on those collection from MAC.

If you haven't been to one.!! check them out!!, hopefully you'll find something you'll like for less the price...!!!

NXY HAUL part 2 @


SO I finally updating my NYX haul from a couple of weeks ago!!
These are the eyeshadows that I bought....all 9 for just $25, that's soo AWESOME!!
The colors I bought were:

Platinum Pink
Deep Purple
Rust (love)
Green Tea (love)

Overall I'm impressed with NYX cosmetics. Cherryculture had such good customer service and their shipping was super fast. The eyeshadows remind me of MAC shadows because of the little cases that they come in...I would say that these are very pigmented and very vibrant. I can't wait to order more!!!

MAC event at my counter!!

SHOULD I GO!! I don't know!!

My Mac counter at a local Dillard's, is finally having there Holiday Event this weekend. I'm debating if I should go. I had a chance to look at the brush set and the palettes last week, but I'm not impressed!! When I first saw pictures of the clutches the brush sets came in, I was excited and was going to get one, but when I saw it in person, I was disappointed. They weren't up to my expectations, and plus I had already had a brush set from last year's holiday, so I decided not to get it. I told myself that I was going to wait till the 15th of November for the pigment sets and lipglass sets come out. I am super excited!! Aren't you!! Here's some pictures of what I want, courtesy of
