I need to personally thank Revlon. Seriously. They have made my lips verrrry happy!

I found these beauties at Walgreens last night, and guess what? This week at Walgreens, Revlon is buy 1, get 1 half off! You guys know I was a happy camper!! Lol!
I bought Strawberry Shortcake, Sweet Tart, Candy Apple, and Red Velvet.  
FYI: The Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters retail for $7.49 each.

I love the semi-translucent caps of the lip butters! Very cute, don't ya think? The quilted pattern on each cap is typical of every Colorbrust lip product Revlon sells. 
I've heard rumors of these babies being permanent, so let's hope that's true because they are amazing!

These lip butters are GREAT. Initially, I didn't think I'd like them because they are indeed a bit sheerer than a lipstick. Yet, they feel SO amazing on the lips! They are very very VERY moisturizing, and the texture of them is very creamy and nice. The pigmentation is not a big deal. Yes, they're a bit sheer, but you can always build up the coverage of the product.

I only have one swatch for you at the moment because I'm supposed to be getting ready for a Here it is ^_^

This is a swatch of the ColorBurst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake!
It's a beautiful light pink! It's perfect because it's not too light. It's just right. As you can see from my swatch, the pigmentation is pretty good as well!

Above is another swatch, but this time in the shade. So far, this is my favorite of the four. I'll try to have more swatches soon!

What do you think of these lip butters? See any colors that tickle your fancy?

Nail Of The Day: Nicole by OPI Ornament For Each Other (Holiday 2011)

This is Ornament For Each Other, a new glitter polish from Nicole by OPI for one of their holiday collections for this year! There are two holiday collections by them, one being Kardashian Kolors, and I have info on that collection HERE. The collection this polish came from includes 3 other glitters, but I only bought 2 (so far...).

Ornament For Each Other is a mix of bright red glitter and a warm gold glitter. It's PERFECT for the holidays! It reminds me of Santa...
Of course, I can't wait til the holidays, so I'm rockin' this beauty now! I got this polish at Target for about 8 bucks. This collection was just released, so your local Target should still have it. However, there were only four of each color to a display. So if you want it, get it ASAP!

What do you think of this polish? Let me know below! ^_^

Makeup Look In Honor Of Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Hello my loves!
To the surprise of many, October is not only Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's also Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
"The cycle of abuse ends with awareness."

After years and years of silence and indifference, it's great to see that our country is becoming more aware of what domestic violence is, and how it can affect any and every one.

I did this makeup look in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Purple is the official color associated with DVAM, so I used mostly that color for this look.

(close up of my bad skin...yay -__- )

Products Used


Wet N' Wild Vanity Palette (soft brown dupe as base color)
MAC Cutie Palette (used every color in the quad! White as highlight, light pink in crease & inner corner, Light lavender over the pink, dark purple in deep crease)
NYX Nude on Nude palette (the white, beige-y color on lid)
Wet N' Wild Greed palette (black shimmer color under lower lashes)
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara
Maybelline Eye Studio Blackest Black gel liner


Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzer Duo (for blush & contour)


natural lip liner
MAC Pink Friday lipstick

As a DV survivor myself, I'd like to let anyone who is or was in a bad situation know there is always sunlight at the end of the will smile again, and there is ALWAYS help if you need it.

The Nicki Minaj OPI Collection 2012: Bottle Pictures

So yesterday, OPI released "accurate" bottle pictures on their facebook page of the Nicki Minaj Collection, which is scheduled to release in January 2012. Here is the picture below:

According to OPI, Super Bass is a "deep, shimmering purple", and Pink Friday is a "bubble gum hue".
Therefore, to the disappointment of MANY nail polish lovers and OPI lovers alike, Pink Friday is NOT an awesome pink holographic polish like we assumed...

I really wanted a pretty holographic polish to play around with...oh well :(
One day!
These shades still look very promising! I don't know about you guys, but I seriously can't wait for swatches of these babies! Do you see any colors that you like?

Nicki Minaj OPI Collection 2012!


First Katy Perry...
Now Nicki Minaj...

Nicki Minaj will be doing a nail polish collection with powerhouse nail polish company, OPI! :D
The official launch of this collection will be in January, perfect timing for my birthday! He he

The six shades from the Nicki Minaj collection include:

"This charcoal sparkle flies with the stars in the skies."

  is this a HOLO?!?!?!
"Kick off the weekend with this mesmerizing pink!"

"I came to win, to fight..and to wear this aqua."

"I drove for miles just to find this silver-rainbow glitter."

"A lusty little lacquer that loves the 'lime'-light."

"A record-setting purple that 'shatters' before your eyes."

When I first saw these promo pictures, I wasn't too excited. Yet, now the more I think about what these colors could look like in person, the more excited I get!
I'm most excited for the Super Bass Shatter and Pink Friday, IF it's a holographic polish.
Yall know I'm a big Nicki Minaj fan, so I love how each polish name relates to one of her songs! Especially Super Bass Shatter and Fly, my two favorite Nicki songs at the moment! ♥
"Yes I did, yes I did! Somebody PLEASE tell 'em who the EFF I IZ!"
Do you see any must-have colors for yourself? I know I do!! ^_^

Rihanna Debuts New Music Video - "We Found Love"

I am not lying when I say this is probably one of the BEST music videos I've seen all year.
This is definitely the best music video by Rihanna that I've ever seen. 
It's so good, I just had to share it with you all!
It portrays how love can be a wonderful thing, yet also dangerous and tormenting.
The whole time I watched this video, I couldn't help but think of Rihanna's past relationship with Chris Brown...
Watch the video below!
what did you think?

Outfit Of The Day 10/13/11 + China Glaze Traffic Jam

Soooo...the sickness that I thought was totally NOT.
Why me Baby Jesus??? :(

So I'm blogging while coughing, which is not as easy as it sounds. Especially whilst coughing, your whole body moves & shakes. Not a fun time...
BUT I told you lovely people that I would have this blog post up, so I'm putting it up! It's my first outfit of the day post that will be exclusive to my blog only. If you're subscribed to my youtube channel, you know I usually post an outfit of the day video there, and post the pictures of that same outfit here. From now on, I'm going to have more outfit of the day posts on my blog only. I'm pretty excited about doing this! I feel like it makes my blog a lil' more special ♥
Anyways, here it is!

Sweater - H&M
Necklace - Forever 21
Shoes - Forever 21
Belt - Thrift
Nails - China Glaze Skyscraper (ring finger), NYC Little Italy (middle), & Sally Hansen Shiny Penny (index pinky)

As you guys can see, I mixed a pastel with not only one, but two metallic colors- gold & silver! Yes, very odd combo, yet it WORKS! At least, I like to think so ; )
And here's a swatch of China Glaze Traffic Jam, one of the polishes I bought from Sallys recently. I mentioned it in a video, so I figured I'd swatch it in case anyone was interested in it! It's a very nice magenta-berry creme polish.

So what do you guys think of my outfit?
Also, what are your thoughts on China Glaze Traffic Jam?
Let me know below! =)

It's a deep blue polish with silver glitter. VERY lovely!

Outfit Of The Day: Crosses, Paint Splatter, & Sparkle!

Is it bad that I don't dress according to the season?'s not that serious. Lol!

I don't think I EVER dress according to season.
If you look back through some of my outfit of the day post, I probably look like I was dressing for the winter in the summer, and dressing for the fall in the spring.
I cannot tell a lie...I don't care what season it is most of the time.
I dress how I want to dress
Just sayin'...

Here's a better look at the shoes I was wearing!
These flats are from Forever 21. I bought them last year, and have loved them ever since!
here's the video of my outfit! =)

aaaaand here's a picture of the Most Adorable Kid Of The Day!! :D
you can't totally smiled when you saw the picture of the kid huh????
This picture totally inspires me to start meditating again!
Til next time...
