My Gotta Haves...

So we all are different... yeah we know. *lol* I just wanted to share some recent purchases and some new faves of mine... Shame isn't it? At my most recent Sephora rampage- I found some items that absolutely and positively blow my mind and already cannot live without! It is so hard to find diversity in your products, but that I have found... Shall we???


Oh my goodness. This stuff makes my skin feel FABULOUS!!! by Juice beauty. This is organic and an antioxidant...which helps with those blemishes, and spots you get here and there. Gotta have it. $45.00 <---Worth every penny.

The colors in this palette by URBAN DECAY... If these don't have ridiculous pigment... then I don't know what pigment is. The only other company I have seen thus far in Sephora that had pigment like this is Make Up For Ever... $38.00 <---Cop that unit.



Speaking of Make Up For Ever... This HD foundation is the shiznit in all areas. Unlike my recently retired, and deceased M.A.C. studio fix, this one is very lightweight with a whole lotta coverage. I need that with my blotchy skin... Though I love M.A.C- M.U.F.E. has them beat hands down, and the photo outcome using this product is- incomparable. $40.00 <--- Pricey but well worth it!

And while I'm on M.U.F.E. this micro finish powder is the shyt on top of the HD or all alone. Pure Silica evens and smooths the skins texture and appearance. You can apply this before-or-after make-up or wear it alone for a soft finish on the face. A definite must have! $30.00 <----Yes, 30, but a little powder goes a long way.



So I decided to go ahead and buy into the hype that this URBAN DECAY eyeshadow primer potion was the end be all of your eye shadow staying on or creasing up on ya... Well guess what? It is. I not cannot live without this stuff already. I have this in the original color and if you like champagne undertones try this primer in 'SIN'...which I confess- I purchased as well. Cool thing is, before I bought this they gave me a sample of both colors which are now in my "car makeup kit"- DAMMIT yes. Whatever they have in here gives eye make up staying power like no other! $17.00 <--- You can't afford not to have this!


Too-Faced has a smoky eye shadow box that is pretty friggin' handy! This box comes with a total of 9 shadows to create 3 different smokey looks; Day, Fashion, and Classic. It also comes with a 3 card set which shows you HOW to create the looks. A must have for those who like the smoky eye. $32.00 <--- Showstopper eyes!

OK... Smashbox gloss... That isn't the color I have-but I purchased FLESH.. and it is a flesh tone and it is GORGEOUS!!!
Very nude, and very SEXY. $18.00 <--- So beautiful...
These are just a few of the items I picked up. As you all know I love colors and make up products and there is nothing like a color nobody else has! If you have some colors or items you cannot live without, love or plain want to try- SHARE.
Until Next Time...
P.S. Ms. Classy I haven't forgot about you! Tutorial soon.

I may have to try that juice beauty! BTW I love your hair in the pics. The UDPP is a staple for me, I usually try to keep it simple since im still learining the eye make up but it holds the color and keeps the make up from creasing really well. Thanks for the post.
