October Favorites

October Favorites – Composed on Polyvore

Favorites are a popular theme on the Youtube beauty network. I’ve never done a favorites post because I didn’t know how I could possibly photograph all the ‘favorites’ and display them on my blog. Then……….along came polyvore! With Polyvore, it’s so easy to create collages for home, fashion, beauty, etc…. The above image was created with said website. My user name is acc82 if you want to follow me. The link to polyvore is here: Polyvore. Now…on with the favorites!

Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette Photos and Review

Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette

Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette Outside Packaging

Oh, Naked palette, what a whirlwind you caused! This was one of tre top selling makeup items of 2011 period. The company couldn’t crank them out fast enough to meet demands. After replacing the eyeliner included in the palette with a brush, they were able to crank them out and meet customer demands. I got mine long before the craziness began. I saw this baby in my Ulta and said, “THAT is an awesome palette” and scooped it up. Weeks later, I was hearing about the demand for this palette and I was so happy I got mine when I did. Fast forward to now, they’ve just released the Naked 2 Palette and with the demand for Naked 1, everyone is trying to grab Naked 2 at breakneck speed. I will be getting Naked 2 for myself but I don’t know when…. 🙂 Read on for more pics and review….

Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Polish Swatches and Review

Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Polish

Today, I’m writing about one of my favorite lip glosses of all time! Buxom is a line by Bare Minerals (bare escentuals) and consists of various eye and lip products. I believe this product, the lip gloss, was the first buxom product rolled out. I have to say that I love every Buxom product I have used and this includes the gloss, eyeliner, and mascara. In fact, Buxom mascara is my holy grail high-end mascara. I would use it exclusively if I could afford it. 🙂 Keep Reading for the Review…..

Tarte Amazonian Clay Longwear Blush in Blushing Bride Swatch and Review

I think it’s blush day here on the blog. I’m here with another of my all time favorite cheek colors. I’m referring to Tarte’s line of amazonian clay blushes which are longwear colors. They are powder versions of tarte’s popular cheek-stains and come in packaging that matches the color of the blush. I bought mine at sephora though you can get them anywhere Tarte is sold. They are cruelty free and bare the cruelty free bunny emblem; of course, for me, this makes me feel even better about buying from Tarte. These blushes have been much buzzed about in the beauty world and I must say they DO live up to the hype! I picked up the color ‘blushing bride’ as it’s more of a cooler color and it has glitter (of course).

As for the review: Firstly, the packaging is awesome. Like I said before, it matches the color inside the compact which makes it easy to pick out from your collection. The amazon river is embossed on the product itself and you get a good bit of product for what you pay. This is a higher end line which means it’s going to be a little pricer in general. However, I believe it’s worth it. They have a good selection of colors and I would advise picking one you could wear everyday as this is the one you’re probably going to reach for quite a bit. The product is VERY pigmented. I barely tap my dual fiber brush into the product and I have enough blush for me. I do find that this blush has great staying power and does last the whole day for me. Overall, I highly reccomend this line. I would love to get a few new colors myself. On with the pictures!
