Thoughts on Bag: I adore my nail polish. I adore it so much i've been looking for the other 3 shades but can't seem to find the collection anwhere. :( My lipstick is in a shade i get periodically in my ipsy bags, so it will probably just be put in my purse when i need some color added to my lips when im out somewhere. I love the colors of the eye shadow palette, but yet to see how they will work with my fair skintone. They look like the perfect shade for like an arabian eye look. Makes me think of Aladdin. I tried the body butter and it wasn't very moisturizing. I also didn't care for the scent. This bag was a toss up for me. The definite stand out product was the nail polish. :)

These were the other products featured in this month's bag. 


Purple Smoke

By cristalena56 · March 7, 2013
I did a quick smokey purple look on Monday before I went out shopping. My work every few months gives us a double discount. Us Ross workers go crazy during this time. Ive actually was only looking for work clothes, but I did get me a cute Hello Kitty Bag!! This wasnt applied perfectly since I was in a hurry. Did my whole face and eye makeup in like 20 minutes. Then I quickly snapped some pics and only had a few that came out.

I used some BFTE colors again. Ive been neglecting my body needs lately and using my BFTE colors. They have such a wide selection of colors from matte to shimmer to satin to duo chromes and every color you could probably think of. Every week they have a color of the week. For $6.00 ($10 after shipping)you get a full size of COTW and then you get to choose 3 samples of your choice (each sample is regularly $2.00). Ive been liking the COTWs lately so I keep purchasing.</p>

Cheshire Cat/VDay Look

By cristalena56 · January 18, 2013
I decided to use some of my new colors that I got from BFTE Cosmetics. I originally did this look on Tuesday. But I didnt like how it turned out. I then saw that Easymakeup makeupblog on FB had some Cut Crease Picture Tutorials. I used it yesterday and decided to recreate my tuesday look using the same tutorial. </p>

<a target="_blank" href="http://media1.onsugar.com/files/2013/01/03/5/1132/11329888/f87a3fa968f74493_cheshire17b.jpg">

</a>The colors reminded me of Valentine's Day. Vday is one of my favorite Holidays. Probably because of the colors, hearts, love, etc... I love romantic stuff. I just find it to be so cute. :) I love chick flicks and of course my hubby hates them. I love Pretty Woman, The Notebook, Grease, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Clueless, Dear John, Bridgit Jones's Diary, Sweet Home Alabama, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Breakfast at Tiffanys, When Harry Met Sally, Devil Wears Prada, etc... 

Next month Ill start having a chick flick marathon. Have a favorite girl movie you love to watch?? I have some I havent watched in a few years like Legally Blonde, 27 Dresses, The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, and many more.

2 people at work today said my look reminded them of my favorite character from Alice in Wonderland, the Cheshire Cat.

This is the tutorial I used to create this look. I didnt follow it completely but I did the basics. :)

<span style="font-size: large;"><strong>

<p>My hubby got me the Samsung DV300 Dual View Camera for Vday/Anniversary. I'm still trying to figure out the right settings to have it on to take pictures for my blog. Sorry if my pictures above are dark. Everytime I use the flash im whited out in the picture. I like that this camera includes a Beauty Shot setting which will be good for full face pics once I get the settings right. </strong></span>

Bare Minerals Fresh and Fabulous

By cristalena56 · January 3, 2013
I had a 20% off coupon that expired on Christmas Eve at Ulta. Its one of the loyalty coupons they send out that can even be used on prestige cosmetic brands. I didn't have a lot of money to spend but I couldnt let my coupon goto waste either. I went to Ulta a few days before Christmas and saw that they were having a sale on the Fresh and Fabulous set by Bare Minerals. It was marked down from $25 to $19 (Retail value of $74). </p>

I thought this was a good deal considering all the items are full size. I had been meaning to try one of their mascaras and found this to be the perfect oppurtunity. With my coupon it came to be $15.00 plus tax. I also bought a gold liner and cream shadow from NYX. 

Description from Bare Minerals website:

<p>GET FRESH AND FLAUNT IT. Wake up your look with bursts of irresistible colour. This wonderfully wearable collection for face, eyes and lips has everything you need for bright, brilliant, wow-worthy beauty. With warm, glimmering eyes, lush lashes, glossy berry lips and a luminous complexion, you're ready to reveal a fresh, fabulous new you.
  • Soft Focus True All-Over Face Color 
  • Peach Surprise Eyecolor 
  • Flaunt Eyecolor 
  • Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara In Black
  • Natural Lipgloss in Sugared Strawberry (shimmering strawberry)

<span style="font-size: large;"><strong>All-Over Face Color in Soft Focus True: Sheer Dusty Rose with shimmer.


<span style="font-size: large;"><strong><a target="_blank" href="http://media2.onsugar.com/files/2013/01/01/4/1132/11329888/d412821ddc49ec94_bm3a.jpg">

</a>This color will bring a nice glow to your cheeks. 

Eyecolor in Peach Surprise: Iridescent Rosy Pink is its description on site. I find it to be a shiny peach color that reflects pink. Makes me think of seashells. Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette's shadow Soulmates is similar but its lighter.

Inside Lighting with Flash Inside with no Flash

Dry and then over Primer (Elf)

Eyecolor in Flaunt: Golden Toffee. Its a beige brown with golden sparkles.

Inside lighting with Flash <a target="_blank" href="http://media3.onsugar.com/files/2013/01/01/4/1132/11329888/efd97fe32812148f_bm6e.jpg">Inside Lighting no Flash

</a>Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in Black.

I thought this applied amazingly. I love how it looks on my lashes. :) 

Natural Lipgloss in Sugared Strawberry: Shimmering Strawberry. I found this to be a light Strawberry Shortcake Pink gloss with shimmer. I would say its a sheer nude mauve pink shimmer. 

<a target="_blank" href="http://media1.onsugar.com/files/2013/01/01/4/1132/11329888/4280a1874ea72328_bm18ba.jpg">

</a>The color didnt show up very well on my lips.

</a>My skin was extra dry yesterday and it didnt help that I had fallen asleep watching a movie with my makeup still on (which is a no no) the night before.

</a>*Started with Primer. (ELF)
*NYX Milk to lid and smoothed out. (Today I used a peachy cream shadow)
*Applied Peach Surprise to Lid and inner corner.
*Smudged Peach Suprise to the lower lashes.
*Applied Flaunt to the crease.
*Smudged Flaunt to lower lashline.
*Lined upper lashline with UD 24/7 Liner in Zero.
*Then smudged a cargo purple liner and estee lauder black pencil to lower lashline.
*Then applied some flaunt back over with a mini smudge brush.
*Applied UD 24/7 Liner in Woodstock.
*2 Coats of BM Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara

I think this set is good for a neutral everyday look. The colors make me think of seashells and sand for some reason.

Thought I would share a picture of the Hello Kitty on my shirt.

OFF Topic Notes:

I wore this look yesterday to the Cheesecake Factory. We had gotten a gift card to there from a friend of ours. Our waitress looked identical to Autumn from The Daily Glamour. She could be her long lost twin. I showed a picture to my hubby and he agreed.

This Peppermint Bark Cheesecake was Amazing!!! It took me 3 sittings to eat this whole piece though. My hubby got strawberry shortcake since he doesnt like cheesecake. Though he tasted mine and tried to steal it.

I finally got a pet. Since we live in a small apt and cost a lot of money I havent been able to have a dog or cat anything. My hubby surprised me on Monday by taking me to Petsmart and getting these 2 Hermit Crabs for me. Their names are Zoidberg and Frye (Futurama characters). I've wanted a pet hermit crab for a long time. When I moved to FL a year after I graduated high school, we went to Cedar Key. While we were swimming I kept noticing this crab to come out and see me. I realized it was a hermit crab. Foolish me decided to take it home with me, and he died like after a couple days. I was sad. I remember going to one of the shops in St. Augustine and seeing Hermit Crabs. I really wanted to take one home, but I never did. So i'm super happy. We lucked out and got 2 friendly crabs. 1 is more active during the day (Frye) and the other is more active during the night. (Zoidberg). Since this look reminds me of seashells, these kind of fit in since they have seashells on their backs. :p This is probably why I have seashells on the brain. :)


My Glam Bag November 2012 - Party Perfect

By cristalena56 · November 17, 2012
I was excited about getting my bag, til it arrived. Its an ok bag. Its not that the products are bad, just didnt care for the color selection.

The infamous pink envelope. :p

I tried finding this on their website but all I found was just an eyeliner not the intense one. 

Quick Swatch of Products:

Thoughts: I was kind of meh on the color collection. Im not a gold nail polish color. You can tell in the pic it doesnt go with my skintone. I prefer silver. :p Black liner would have been better than brown since I only on a very rare occassion use brown. Brown shades make me look older so I usually stay clear of them. Wont see much use out of the brow gel either. The only thing I will end up using out of the whole bag is the lip gloss. I wont complain about getting only makeup products though. :p
