We're Off to See the Wizard.....The Great and Powerful...

By cristalena56 · January 19, 2013
</p> <p>I decided to use some of my new BFTE colors once again and the colors just reminded me of the wizard of oz. I kept thinking after I applied the yellow, "Follow the Yellow Brick Road.." Then the green made me think of emerald city. Reminded me of the  new movie coming out. Anyone else can't wait to see this?? I hope i'm not disappointed.</p>

Can Mila be any prettier?? ugh.. lol
And James Franco... <3 </p>

A fan on my fb page said my look reminded her of a modern wicked witch. I recreated the look once I got home and its why only one eye is done. Went a little to crazy with the black. :p</p> <p>

Other Notes:

<p>Sad day.. Came home from work. Sat down to relax and opened up my netbook and I saw splotches on the screen. I realized there was a crack in it. Good thing though I bought a protection plan. But.. the original person who rung me up for my netbook added the wrong service plan. (Desktop Computer plan not Netbook) Luckily we called the store and I went in and they did a return exchange to give me the right plan. Now I need to call the service plan people again to file a claim. I thought I was going to have to pay extra to get the new plan because the paper said it should have been $59 not the $29 I paid. Well turns out they changed the prices of the plans and it was actually only $28. I got a whole dollar back, score!!. :) Im going to miss my netbook because I have a feeling Im going to have to mail it in to be fixed. :( What will I do with my time?? lol ;)

<span style="font-size: large;">This look I did for my last minute Christmas Shopping on Saturday. I also was wearing my Hat my hubby got for me. It's Vanity Smurf!! <3 We found it at walmart for $10. I couldnt believe it was of him, my favorite smurf. <3 I dont know why I always loved Vanity, but I always thought he was cute. Maybe its because my Mom always said to me "Vanity, Vanity, Vanity". She said this because I would look in mirrors or at a reflection on something to make sure my hair or face looked ok. lol I wasn't admiring myself. lol

So hope everyone got what they wanted for Christmas. I got a External Hard Drive so I can store my Pictures for my blog. :) Which is Awesome!! Also got a Ulta Gift card that I cant wait to use along with some DVDs/Blu Rays (Brave in 3D!!! :D I finally got to watch it and it was super cute. Also my hubby got me a Snorks DVD and Care Bears Original Series Collection set. <3), Fuzzy Pajamas, Money, Hello Kitty Stuff, Makeup Bags, and Candy. With some christmas money so far I bought a snapware storage thingy for some makeup, the Bare Minerals Fresh and Fabulous Set (was on sale for $19 and I had a 20% off coupon on top of that. :D), and a couple of NYX Liners. :)


All That Glitters is Gold

By cristalena56 · December 13, 2012
This was the 2nd look I did. Its ok I guess. My eyeliner wasnt working with me. I dont know why but my liners arent wanting to apply well lately. I guess it doesnt help that my eyes water a lot. I found that everytime I use the Be a Bombshell Liner I got from one of my recent glam bags that my eye waters a lot and crusts up which is really gross. So I cant recommend this liner to my fellow people with sensitive eyes. </p>

Items Used:
*BH Cosmetics 120 Palette 2nd Edition

*Be a Bombshell Eyeliner Pen
*The Balm Body Builder Mascara

<a target="_blank" href="http://media3.onsugar.com/files/2012/12/50/4/1132/11329888/d4d745d2d2c5a78b_goldy16a.jpg">

<p></a>*First Applied Primer (Elf Shadow Primer)
*Applied Shade A to inner half of lid.
*Applied Shade B to outer half of lid.
*Applied Shade C to crease.
*Applied Shade D to upper crease and rounded down to outer corner of lower lashline.
*Then starting in the inner corner of lower lashline applied Shade A, then B, and then C.
*Lined eyes with Black Liner (Be a Bombshell)
*Applied 2 coats of Mascara (The Balm Body Builder Mascara)</p>

This shows this look next to my Christmas Party Look. Changed my lips to NYX Pure Red with NYX Razzle Dazzle.

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. Last month they started with the customization bags by the answers you gave for the beauty quiz. This month they did not, but one of the products you either got a brow gel or mascara. It seemed that the US subscribers got the brow gel and the Canadian Subscribers got the mascara.

The infamous pink envelope. :p

Came in a shiny brown bag this month.</p>

Card showing contents of the bag. This month 1 of the products you got 1 of 2 products (mascara or brow gel).

Got 5 products this month. (my shadow is missing from the pic..)

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 
Total Value of Products: $53.20
Cost of Bag: $10.00
