Tag: Would You Rather….?

The lovely Julia from Penny Pinching Perfection tagged me.  This was fun to do, I actually had to think about some of these!

1. Would you rather lose all your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?   I have a lot of other products than palettes so I definitely would rather lose the 2 palettes I have 🙂

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again? I’d rather to never be able to cut it again. Every single time I cut my hair I always end up missing it 😦 I love my long hair, and right now I’m trying to grow it out and it’s painful. It’s not growing as fast as it used to!

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek? I love neutral colors so coral is the closest thing to it 🙂

4. If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup? Clothes! I have more makeup than clothes lol

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick? Definitely eyeliner as lipstick, so many possibilities!!!

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora? Sephora. So many different brands to choose from!!

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life? Oh my this is a tuffy. I would have to say eyeshadow. I love lipsticks and glosses!

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in the summer or summer clothes in winter? Depends if I’m inside or outside 😉

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round? This one’s easy! DARK! I can’t wear bright colors, the dark hides my flaws! If I see my nail splitting I can’t help myself!

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product? Eye. When I’m lazy or in a hurry I leave out the eye makeup.

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
I work in the healthcare field and it’s a messy bun everyday 😀
12. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?
Oh no, another hard one!!  Hmmm, look pale or have short nails forever? I would have to give up lip gloss, there’s always lipstick 😉
13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or Sharpie them in everyday?
Lmao!!!  I’ve seen pictures of both and trust me a sharpie is a lot better than none!!!
14. Would you rather live without makeup or nailpolish?
UGH, Nail polish. First thing people look at is your pretty face. 😉

Beauty: August Ipsy Glam Bag

I’ve been a subscriber to Ipsy for three months now and I have to say I am totally in love with their service. Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service.  For $10.00 a month, you receive beauty samples and full size products with a bag.  Every month is different and exciting!  So far I’ve been very happy with what I’ve received.  This month’s theme is titled Glamour Academy. It’s a beautiful purple with gold shimmer for the logo and came with 5 products.

The first product is Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub.  It’s black in color, comes in a 30 ml./1 fl oz. tube.  It’s goes on very smooth and you can feel the gentle  “grains” exfoliating your skin.  It’s gentle enough for sensitive and acne prone skin.  I put a bit on my cheek and rinsed.  I definitely felt a difference.  A lot smoother and softer.  It has a very mild fragrance.

Next is MICA Beauty Shimmer Eyeshadow Powder in Bronze.  Definitely one of the most beautiful shimmers I’ve seen for an eyeshadow. It comes loose in a 2.5G container.

Next is Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Anarchy. These lipsticks are highly pigmented!  This beautiful color is similar to Maybeline’s  Vivid Rose from their Vivids collection.  It goes on so smooth, I wish I had gotten all 20!

Next is Pixi Beauty’s Lash Booster Mascara.  Now, I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t confirm that it does “boost” your lashes.  The color I received was Blackest Black.

Finally, we have Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream.  It goes on extremely light, has a light shimmer, and blends beautifully.  It has no fragrance and comes in a 0.34 fl oz tube.

Beauty: My First Fishtail Manicure

fishtail3


I am so proud of this manicure.  It took me a while but I finally got the hang of it.  The trick is not too many layers and use opaque nail polishes so you only have to paint the stripe once.  I made the mistake of polishing the stripe twice and the manicure got ruined.  So my on second try, I only went half way on my nail on the first stripe (by the bottom cuticle) and only striped once the rest of the way. Worked like a charm! Products used:  Julep: base coat, China Glaze: Glistening Snow, Nars: Schiap,  Loreal: Royalty Reinvented, Seche Vite Top Coat.
