    I Take That Back!

    I went to my aunt's yesterday and I wore my Stila eyeliner. It looked awesome! It was so intense and the color is amazing. I got there at 7:30 pm and when I went to the bathroom around midnight, it was all smudged and smeared. :[ I am disappointed because I really love the color. But my UD 24/7 liner doesn't even budge. If only the qualities of the UD 24/7 and the Stila pencil could combine, it would probably make the perfect eyeliner! I will try it again tonight and see if it smears again. I refuse to give up after just one night :]

    On another note, I finally picked up the YSL Rouge Volupte in #7 (Lingerie Pink) and am IN LOVE! It's been backordered online for the longest time so I finally picked it up. It tastes like melon and it's very moisturizing. I am in love with the texture. However, the minute I drink or eat something, it comes off. But the color is so amazing, I will probably keep re-buying them and if they ever discontinue them, I will cry!

    So originally going hunting for a really cute pencil skirt, I ended up at Sephora. Surprise, surprise! I gravitated towards makeup. Me in Sephora or MAC is like a kid in a candy store. Anyways, I originally went to Wet Seal and was so disappointed! I had picked out a few things I really loved online and NONE of it was in the store. But I guess I'll have to stick to shopping online, which is nice because you can do it from your bedroom. :] 

    But I landed at Sephora, which is totally fine with me (not so okay for my wallet lol!) I only got a couple things, but I'm in love with every single thing!

    1. Stila Kajal Eye Liner (Onyx): I AM IN LOVE! I wont lie, I saw this pencil on TiffanyD's blog and she said she'll never go back to her UD Zero eyeliner, which was my favorite. I was sold when I saw her swatch and she was 100% right. This pencil blows UD right out of the water! The color is intense and long lasting. (Duh, isn't that what we all dream of in an eyeliner?!) I wore it from the time I got home till I took my makeup off and it didn't even budge. It's official -- it's my favorite new eyeliner! 

    2. MUFE HD Foundation (115): I wont be able to try this until tomorrow when I put on my makeup so I don't have a full review. However from what I saw (aka I wouldn't stop playing with it in the store to see if I wanted to spend the $40), it gives a lot of coverage for how light it is. I'm really excited to try it because I've been getting bored with my Studio Fix Fluid. So maybe after the week goes by I can do a little review on this to see how it held up! My friend bought it too and we came home, took off her makeup, and I applied it for her with a 109 brush. And honestly, WOW. It looked great! It made her skin glow and I only had to use a little less than 2 pumps to cover her whole face. I really loved it on her and can't wait to try it on myself tomorrow! *Fingers crossed I wont be disappointed*

    3. Juicy Couture Makeup Bag: I have walked by this bad boy a good 5 or 6 times, really resisting to splurge. Tonight, I was not so lucky! I had to get it! It's really big and as my makeup collection grows, I really need a makeup bag that is compact but will fit a lot. And this is going to do just that! It is pretty big (8 x 3.75 x 5.5) and has a ton of room on the inside. And it's pink :] Also, can I just say how excited I am that Juicy joined up with Sephora? I think Juicy is so feminine and classy and cute - I just loooove them! I think many girls have a weakness for their stuff, but are constantly pushed away by the price tag. 

    That's my little haul for today, but it was so worth the money! I don't mind spending if I really like the products and plan on using them. So very good buys today :] Hopefully I can get a MUFE HD Foundation review up soon, even though there are 100 other people out there that have already done one. lol! Oh well!

    Current Face Faves!

    I find that even though I constantly feed my makeup addiction, I always come back to certain products - staples for my favorite looks! I'll admit, my daily makeup is pretty neutral because I'm not quite brave enough to wear the bright colors to work or school. I don't use all of this when I have to do my 5 minute face, but when I have time, this is what I love to use. Anyways, here's my faves!

    Primer -- 
    MAC Prep and Prime 

    Concealer -- 
    MUFE palette 
    MAC Select Moisturecover (under my eyes)
    MAC Studio Fix Concealer (for redness)

    Foundation --
    MAC 109 brush +
    MAC Studio Fix Fluid (NC15) OR
    Dior Forever liquid foundation (This gives me a ton of coverage!)
    I really want to buy the MUFE HD Foundation next! 

    Powder --
    MAC 182 Brush + MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural (Light) 
    MAC 150 Brush + MUFE HD Powder

    Contouring (Bronzer/Highlighter) --
    134 Brush + MAC Bronzer (Golden) OR NARS Laguna 
    165 Brush + MAC Soft & Gentle OR NARS Albatross 

    Blush --
    MAC 129 Brush + 
    MAC Harmony & MAC Trace Gold
    OR MAC Petticoat
    OR NARS Deep Throat

    Lipstick --
    MAC Lip Conditioner
    MAC Snob or Creme D'Nude
    MAC C-Thru Lipglass

    Man, when you put it in a list like that, it seems like so much, but it really gives me my favorite face! I have a picture I'll have to post with all this on. I've noticed that it takes me quite a few attempts to get a good picture because I find with my Macbook Pro the color quality is just not that good at all! Idk if anyone reads this yet but haha whatever! :]

    First post!

    Hey everyone! :]

    So this is my first post! Awesomeee. It's more of an outlet for me, much like it is for many other people. I am a makeup addict and love everything beauty! However, not many of my friends are as into it as I am so that's why I made this blog! I have basically learned everything I know from bloggers/youtubers and I hope to do the same. I have saved a lot of money just based on the reviews I find so I hope to help others as well! I wanna be in a place where people have the same passion as I do and no one's begging me to shut up about makeup! lol

    I guess I should write a little about me outside of my obvious makeup addiction! I am 20 years old, 100% Italian, and engaged! I am a Navy fiancee, which could be a whole blog in itself, but you would just hear the typical rants and raves over that. (Although they might pop up a little bit here and there!) I am currently getting my Associates in Business - I'll be done with that in May - then I hope to go to makeup school in the fall. Either that, or get the guts to apply to MAC, which is currently my dream job. I've been handed applications, but honestly, I have not been able to get myself to fill them out because I feel like I have so much left to learn! 

    I look forward to blogging and hope to keep up with it! :]
