Smokey Blue FOTD

Hey guys!
So lately I have been being very bland and boring with my makeup due to lack of time and energy to make the effort to do it. I have been working a lot especially in the early morning and who likes doing their makeup at 5 a.m? haha But, one of the days that I worked later at Ulta, I decided to play around with my Urban Decay shadows and here is what I came up with. :)

Too Faced Primed and Poreless Pure
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Foundation in Honey
Too Faced Chocolate Soliel Bronzer
Bare Minerals Ready Bronzer in "The Deep End" to contour 
Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in "Exposed"

Lorac Perfectly Lit in "Radiant" for highlight 

NYX lipstick in "Circe" 

Makeup Forever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector in No. 0

Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance 
Maybelline Color Tattoo in "Tenacious Teal" as base
Urban Decay e/s in "Haight" on lid
Urban Decay e/s in "Verve" on tear duct
Too Faced e/s in "Soul mates"  under eyebrow
Urban Decay e/s in "Naked" to blend
Loreal Infallible e/s in "Midnight Blue" in crease and lower lash line

Urban Decay e/s in "Blackout" to darken the crease and lower lash line
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
Ardell 105 False Lashes  

And my Ulta attire, all black.

Seeking Pleasure? ;)

Sorry about the title.. I couldn't help myself. ;) 
Anyways, MAC recently launched the Heavenly Creature collection containing different mineralize skinfinishes, mineralize blushes, lipsticks, etc. The only thing that I decided to order from this collection was the lipstick in Pleasureseeker. What drew me to this color was the fact that it is a peachy nude. I own many (MANY) nude lipsticks but not a lot of pink or peach nude lipsticks. Ironically, MAC's Shy Girl, another peachy nude that is compared to Pleasureseeker, was the first lipstick that I ever bought from MAC. I tried it out and decided that it was too light for my tan skin tone and ended up trading it on Makeupalley (which ended up being swaplifted -_-). Despite my bad luck with shy girl, I am loving the peach nude color that Pleasureseeker delivers. This is a glaze formula so it is a little bit of a lighter pigment than other formulas, but it still delivers a beautiful wash of color that brings life to the lips. It is not drying on my lips (it feels more like a lip gloss/lipstick cross). But, it also does not last as long as other lipsticks. 
Despite it lasting only an hour or two on my lips, I am loving this lipstick and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I feel like this lipstick would look great on most skin tones unless you are fairly dark, it may be too light. 
Pleasureseeker is currently still available on MAC's website for $14.50. Click Here to check it out! 

 Has anyone tried the other lipsticks from this collection?

My boyfriend gave me a new camera for my birthday! It is a Panasonic Lumix and it shoots HD videos.. 
Possible Youtube videos in the future?

July Glam Bag!

It's that time for yet another My Glam Bag. I have to say this one is one of my favorites that I have received so far. I love how summery this bag is and the great samples that I have wanted to try. :) 

What did your Glam Bag bring this month?

Getting Topless and Barefoot!

Browsing the Makeup and Beauty section on Pinterest, I stumbled  upon a gorgeous nude nail polish and I had to have it! Essie's Topless and Barefoot is a light beige nude with a pink undertone. It is very similar to Sand Tropez but a little less beige. The formula of this nail polish is a bit streaky on the first application, but with a second coat, it turns out to be very opaque. I have worn this color when being tan as well as being pale after my self tanner wore off. It looked great both times and did not wash out my nails. 
This is my first nude nail polish and I may be addicted now...
Click here to order this nail polish off Amazon for $6.99.
