St Patty's Day Look

By cristalena56 · March 15, 2013

Last week the color of the week for BFTE was 1939 (sparkly dark green). I decided to order  and picked out some other greens and a gold for my sample colors so I could do a St. Patty's day look. I've been digging green looks lately. This is like my 4th posting of a green look in a month.

Mardi Gras Manicure

By cristalena56 · February 9, 2012

Going to a Mardi Gras themed bridal shower on saturday. I wanted to repaint my nails today and one of my new polishes from my secret cupid seemed like a perfect MG purple. The name Flying Dragon, seemed to go along with the theme as well. Im not the greatest at nail art but i tried lol This wasnt that hard to do.

Colors Used:

*Wet n Wild Sagreena the Teenage Witch

*Color Club Sugar Plum Yum(scented!!)

*Color Club Gingerbread

*China Glaze Neon Flying Dragon

*Migi Nail Art Manicure Pen
in Black and Blue(Not Pictured)

*Seche Vite Top Coat(Not Pictured)

*First I applied a base coat(Beauty Secrets from Sally's)

*Next I put nail guide stickers on the middle of each nail going diagonally.

*Then I painted one side with Sagreena and the other with Flying Dragon.

*I took the nail guide off to see which color i needed to add more. Then i painted in the bare spot.

*Im impatient with drying so i added one thin coat of Seche Vite.

*Next I applied Gingerbread to the tips of my fingers.

*I then went over it with Sugar Plum, Yum.

*I found it didnt cover all the green and purple underneath so i applied Gingerbread yet again to be more opaque.

*Next I drew a line with the black migi nail art pen under the glitter. (drawing with my left hand wasnt the greatest, sorry :()

*Applied Seche Vite so lines wouldnt smear(though i accidentally smeared my thumb and middle finger :/)

*Next I drew a little mask on my thumb with the Migi Nail Art Pens in Black, Blue, and Yellow

*applied seche vite

I have a hurt finger :( keep stabbing it at work when reaching in my bucket for a pin to hard tag clothes.

I took a better pic of Color Club Gingerbread so you can see all the sparkly goodness.

Strawberries and Champagne - Beauty From the Earth EOTD

By cristalena56 · February 6, 2012


I got 2 sample baggies in my Beauty From the Earth Blogger Set. For some reason i forgot to post this when i wrote about the other items. Excuse my messy hair in the pics below. I had taken a shower right before this. Was getting ready to go pick my mom up from the airport. I think this could easily be used for a Valentines Day Look.

Items Used:

*BFTE Bubbles - Peachy Pink Duochrome

*BFTE Stunning - Magenta Pink

*Maybelline Master Drama Precise Pen Liner

*Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara


*First I applied NYX Milk to my lids and blended out.

*Next I applied Bubbles onto my lids and to my lower lashline.

*Next I applied Stunning to my crease and rounded it to my lower lashline outer corner.

*Next I applied Maybelline Master Drama Precise Liner and winged out.

*Applied Illegal Length Mascara.

*MAC Tippy Blush

*Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Passion


Bubbles is a peachy pink duochrome with a sheen finish. I adored this color. It was love at first sight. I need to order the full size version because i see myself using it a lot. It stayed put and applied smoothly. Didnt take much product to be opaque on the lid.

Stunning is a Magenta Pink with a sheen finish. This one wanted to apply sheer and took a lot of product to show up. Had to keep applying more and more to the crease to get more depth. Too bad really because its a really pretty color. I might need to try it again. I came across another sample i had in classy which i think i could add to this look.

Final Verdict: These colors did last though through my eyes that were having an allergic attack all day. I love BFTE shadows. Some shadows though can be hit or miss. They might look beautiful when you look at them but when applied not very good color payoff. Some also can apply vibrant but in a few min the vibrancy dims. These 2 however vibrancy lasted. Was just disappointed in the color payoff of stunning. Wish it didnt take like 3 or 4 swipes to get the color payoff i was wanting. :/ Bubbles though i highly recommend.

Chocolate Covered Raspberry

By cristalena56 · February 6, 2012

Went to the Downtown Glendale Chocolate Festival Affaire on Sat with my hubby. Its a festival they have annually in the beginning of February. One of the big sponsors is Cerreta. I was told they bought the rights to be the only ones to sell chocolate covered strawberries. Theres all these little booths selling chocolate, wooden roses, dog collars, bath beads, lotions, kettle corn, art, coffee, cocktail mixes, wine, bbq sauce, seasonings and soup, etc... Theres horse and carriage rides, which i got to go on last year. :D So we first stopped to get some wooden roses. They are actually the flowers i had for my wedding 7 years ago(02/19/05). I saw them at a art walk when i was in fl. A french guy named Jean(big shocker lol) made them for us. :) Then we got chocolate covered strawberry, cerreta mint chocolate truffles, candy bars, chocolate mint fudge, chocolate covered cheesecake, lemon cupcake, peppermint cupcake, chocolate drizzled banana and brownie kebob, and a carmel covered apple with peanuts. We took it all home because it was too crowded to enjoy anything :( When leaving we got some home made root beer which is yum. For $4 you get a mug and either get just root beer, a root bear float, or a root beer slushie. Every refill is a $1. We brought our mug from 2 festivals ago and got another.

So I decided to do a look that made me think of chocolate of course.

Items Used:

*Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk

*ELF 24k 15 Piece Palette

*ELF Classic Palette

*Maybelline Master Drama Precise Pen Liner in Black

*Tarte Emphaseyes Clay Liner in Black

*MAC Tippy Blush

*Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Passion

*Revlon Pink Lip Gloss

*Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara

*I first applied Pomegranate Punk to my lids.

*I then dabbed my shadow brush into the bright red in the classic palette and the brick red in the 24k palette and patted it onto my lids over the PP. I think also applied it to my lower lashline.

*Next I took the brown from the elf palette and put it in my crease and rounded it around to the outer corner of my lower lashline.

*Next I Applied the Tarte Liner to my upper lashline.

*Next I went over with Master Drama Precise Liquid Liner Pen and winged it out.

*Next I applied Illegal Length Mascara.

I did this look in like 5 min lol because my hubby was wanting to leave and i had did my foundation 3 times because my skin just wasnt wanting to work with my foundation. :/ I think this would be a good vday look. :)
