Thinking about buying some Coastal Scents, Sigma...?

Okay, Okay, Okay...

So I probably know that I am THE LAST person in the world to talk about coastal scents palettes, but I've been seeing lots of tutorials, pictures of people using these palettes...and I want to know from you guys if they are really the ISH! I mean, duh...they are definitely great on the prices and they seem pretty pigmented, I guess what I am truly wondering is if I already have colors like these, since I only own basically all of MAC...seriously LOL.

However, I really actually like their 88 Warm Palette, Contour & Blush Palette, 10 Piece Professional Blush Palette, 88 Metal Mania Palette and their Sky Line Gel Liner (because it looks like my love Royal Wink by MAC!!!). So I think I'm at a loss, and will just give in and buy, I definitely want to know what you guys think though! So let me know!!

Sigma...Yeah. Definitely EXTREMELY IDENTICAL to MAC Brushes, but a whole lot cheaper. They have 217 look alike all the way to a 190 alike. I am loving these prices though, even though I have all of MAC's brushes...So I possibly might think on that and purchase if I need them, I definitely want to know how the quality is on those brushes...

Please comment and give me some feedback on these brands!!

Some Holiday Makeup.

Hey everybody!

Gosh, I have been SO extremely busy with all of these crazy holiday hours I've been working, I hate not being able to post every day or every other day! It makes me sad, because I love to keep everything updated...

So I will definitely be a little more better at this! Anyways, I've been doing lots of makeovers recently and it seems like a lot of people are really into natural/earth tones for the holidays. Gold and pretty bronzes can go with a lot of outfits for holiday parties and ect. I did a makeover on two friends today who were going to a holiday party, they were both going to be wearing black and wanted to do natural eyes with some bronze and gold to accentuate there jewelry.

Here are some pictures of some work I did, and sorry if the quality is crappy, it was my cellphone!
On Crystal 's Eyes We Used:
MAC Groundwork Paint Pot
MAC Spiked Eyebrow Pencil
MAC NW40 Prolongwear Concealer
Jest, Amber Lights, Swiss Chocolate and Typographic Eye shadows
MAC #7 Lashes
MAC Smoulder Eye Khol
MAC Black Studio Fix


Now, I'm not sure what Kara used (a friend I work with) used on her, from looking at the picture, it's a pretty bronze smokey eye.

So I definitely wanted to post a few of my favorite colors from MAC that deal with gold/bronzes/coppery: Amber Lights, Romp, Bronze, Antiqued, Mythology, Goldmine, Gorgeous Gold, Mulch, and Woodwinked to name a few.

For highlighting the brow bone area when doing a bronze/gold smokey eye some of my favorites are: Jest, Mylar, Crystal Avalanche, Nylon, Dazzlelight, and Vanilla.

For a crease color for blending a bronze/smokey eye some of my favorites are: Folie, Swiss Chocolate, Embark, Espresso, Brown Down, Carbon, Typographic, Shadowy Lady, Brun and Mystery...that's all I can think of so far!

Anyways though, I think that this kind of look is great on every complexion! It really plays up your eyes and accentuates your natural beauty!

Haul at The Cosmetic Company Outlet Store!!



Hey guys!

Ugh! I am so sorry I haven't posted in about a week now, I have been so caught up in work, and especially shopping with the madness for the holidays! This video is my haul at a makeup outlet store I went to. I had a great time with my sisters and my mom, even though I spent almost a hour in that store! LOL.
Anyways, I will be doing more tutorials after the holiday season definitely, need to get my game up!
