Bride To Be Vox Box and review....

Ok so first off lemme say this box was AWESOME!! Vox Box Is a sampling program from I get awesome products for free to try and review. This box included Kiss everEZlashes, Dream Water, A Card For Ivy Date, Rescue Gum, Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Repair Rescue Shapoo, Condioner, & Sealed Ends.

So being Happily married I did not do anything on the Ivy Date site.

And my wonderful hubby decided he was gonna drink the Dream Water one night while i was already sleeping. But according to him it tasted somewhat like an energy drink. Sadly he said it did not help him relax and try to sleep. 

The Kiss everEZlashes are a steal at just 3.99! Personally the strings just got in my way when trying to remove them I pulled up the edge of the lash a bit and had to readjust it. However they did look amazing! The glue held well all day and they blended in with my lashes well as you can see...

The Rescue Gum was actually quite good. It had a orange and floral flavor I quite liked. It did seem to relieve my stress.

And the Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Repair Rescue set I loved!
It left my hair feeling light as a feather! The full set is a bit pricey. Also both the shampoo and conditioner where a bit runny for my taste. But if it works like that I could care less about the consistency LOL. I was a bit bummed the shampoo is much larger than the conditioner cause with my long think hair I need a ton of it. The Sealed Ends treatment had a nice lotion quality to it and did not weigh my hair down at all. The full set left my hair shiny and overall much healthier looking. It cut down on breakage as well!

Nothing but nails....

I am too lazy tonight to do individual posts so you get one big one LMAO!!
This is one my girl Abstract turned me on too. It is Creeper by Daring Digits. The color is just awesome but it is slightly transparent. I am wearing 4 coats here.
Next is NARS Endless Night from the 2011 Holiday Line. It is a nice dark Burgundy color. Here it looks kinda light in spots but I didnt notice until I saw the pic. On it looked nice & Dark ;)
Ok so this is the OPI Pink Of Hearts set for 2012. The colors really aren't my cup of tea but hey...For a good cause right! A Portion of the proceeds go to Breast Cancer Research. The light pink is 2 coats of I Think In Pink then I used one coat of the You Glitter Be Good To Me.
Finally my favorite combo I have wore recently.
I Used 2 Coats of MAC Polish in Steamy which is a vibrant hot pink color with just a tiny bit of an orange undertone to tone it down. Over that I used one coat of Pretty & Polished Punk'd Up Beatty. I am so in love with this top coat! It has Black and pink matte microfine glitter, Small Black & Hot Pink Hexes, And just a few HUGE Silver hexes. Plus it came off relatively easy!


In Love With Illamasqua Rubber Finish...

OMG!! Ok so I been drooling over these babies for awhile now and Sephora put em on sale for $11 and I had a 10% code and I had to go for it. I got 3 but so far this is the only one I have tried and it is called Nurture. It is a fab Green Apple kinda color and the finish is exactly as promised!! It really doesn't photo as well as I wish it did but I don't care. It dried super fast and didnt smell at all. I did have a bit of an issue with dragging and ended up adding a 3rd coat because of it. Anyway here ya go....One is with the flash and one without. There is not gloss to it like it photographs just a perfect Rubber looking finish....

More fun with Fyrinnae...

Ok So since I stumbled onto this company I am kinda smitten. These shadows go on smooth and have loads of shimmer. They have a huge collection of all kinds of colors too! Plus you can always order a mini for under $3 if you are worried about the color. Here is what I got in this order:

And the looks....
This is Callipygian just slightly above my lashes, Then Boytoy from Halfway on my lid to the crease, Then Bitey Tyrannosaur. I used the Pixie Epoxy for primer which you can also get a mini but the full size is on $7 and I can tell you now you will love it! The Liner is Kat Von D Autograph Pencil in Eyegasm and the Mascara is The Balm Body Builder.

Felling a bit blue? I was....Who would have thought I would fall in love with blue shadow!!
I started with The Pixie Epoxy. On the Outside corner from my lashes to the crease I used Arcane Magic in Sorceress. The inside and above the crease is Arcane Magic mermaid Masquerade. And then I used a shimmery white I had on hand. I lined the top of my Lashes with Wet N' Wild Fantasy Makers Liquid Liner in Magical which is a blue glitter (It is a good dupe of Urban Decay Stage Dive I think) Under my eyes I Used Sorceress and on my waterline I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Radium. Finished with 2 coats The Balm Body Builder Mascara.

Finally Purple!!!
This is my look today :P For some silly reason I was rushing today so I forgot the pixie Epoxy :( I Used Arcane Magic Mystical Hedgehog & Freya. At my brow I used a white shimmer I had. I used the Mystical Hedgehog under my eyes and St Germain Purple Sparkle on my waterline. The Mascara is The Balm Bdy Builder.

Just Some Shadows...

For this look I used Korres Cypress Green, Mac Gilded Green Pigment, & Urban Decay Polyester Bride Shadows. The Liner is Kat Von D Autograph liner in Eyegasm & the Mascara is 2 coats Maybelline Lash Stiletto. I know I used a primer and I am guessing it was Urban Decay but I suck and forgot LOL.

Here I used The LA Splash Duo in Mystical I picked up from Sneak Peek for under $10!! I used the shadow primer that came with it. The Liner is Stila Smudge Stick in Purple Tang and the Mascara is Rimmel Lash Accelorator

New for fall OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest, Essie Recessionista, & Daring Digits Death By Hex

I am sure by now some of you may know I am obsessed with dark colors so the fact that this fall Ox Blood is a huge hit makes me super happy. The photos above I think are my pick for my favorite fall polish. It is OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest. It comes out this beautiful burgundy shade after just 2 coats. It did have pretty full coverage with just 1 coat though and you could see all the beautiful blue and purple undertones then.

Next I have Essie Fall Recessionista. I got this free as a Klout perk and boy did they send me the perfect color! It is a super rich Oxblood creme color. No shimmer here which is perfect to add an awesome top coat! I used 2 coats of the polish....
 And like I mentioned it is perfect for a top coat so I added 2 coats of Daring Digits Death By Hex.

Young Punk Eye Makeup...

I used:
Soooo...I got these Kiss EZ Lashes Style 03 in My Bride To Be Vox box and I just love how this look came out. Really there wasnt much EZ about the lashes but I will write that up in my Vox box review shortly.  You can buy these online for $3.99 from Beauty Supply Online.
Urban Decay Primer Potion for my eyes. This is my go to primer for shadows. Right now you can get the Professional size for $20 at Urban Decay.
The Sparkly black shadow is MAC Mineralize in Young Punk. It is a black with pink shimmer running through it. Like always is goes on smooth and doesnt fade or crease throughout the day. Plus I am sure you know it is kind of a steal at $21. Yes I know some of you may think that is high but trust me it is so worth it! It is a large pan and you definitely get what you pay in value. Get it from MAC.
On the Inside corner of my lid and just above the crease I Used Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Woodstock. This is probably the most true to color eyeshadow in their whole collection. It is a super hot pink color. Get it from Urban Decay.
Above that I used Urban Decay shadow in Cherry. It is a super pale pink shimmer. Best part is right now it is on sale and you can get it for $6 from Urban Decay
I then added a little Urban Decay shadow in Polyester Bride at my brow. Get it from  Urban Decay.
My Black liquid Liner is Be A Bombshell Eyeliner in Onyx. This came in My October My Glam Bag and I am in love!! It goes on smooth and even. It dries almost instantly too!! Get it from Be A Bombshell.
Under my eyes I used Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner in Purple Shock. This liner is a bit soft and breaks easy but the color is just great. Plus right now it is under $6 at
One my waterline I used Bonne Bell in Black.
I finished with 2 coats The Balm Body Builder Mascara. You can get it from The Balm.

October My Glam bag....

YAY! My October My Glam bag is here!!
This month I got:
Mirennese Lip Bomb in shade #4. This is a super shiny reddish gloss...I dont really do lip stuff but I swatched it and the color is stunning.

Bombshell Liquid Eyeliner in Onyx. I am loving this. It is kinda like a felt tip marker. It goes on smooth and dries instantly!

Pequi Oil Treatment by Couture Colour. This is I havent tried out yet but it promises to smooth Flyaways.

The Balm Body Builder Mascara. This stuff is great. Goes on with no clumps and is perfect of building layers.

And Finally A Mini Coastal Scents eyeshadow Set #1. The dark color is actually a really dark green shade. these colors applied well but are slightly lighter when applied dry.

And here is my eyelook ;)
I also used Urban Decay Primer Potion on my lids, & Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eyeliner in Junkie.

Indie Shadow: Fyrinnae. Looks, Swatches, & Review

OMG OMG OMG!!! I am in LOVE!! So I got these wonderful shadows from Fyrinnae and I think I have a winner. These super pigmented and super shimmery shadows are heaven! They go on smooth and are not that messy. Not to mention the fact they shimmer like no other! They have 2 sizes to choose from too! A full size and a mini. The collections are just stunning. If you like dark shimmer shadow look no further. I used the Pixie Epoxy as my base for shadows as well and that too they have a mini if you just wanna try it out first.
So here is my order...
I got:
Shinigami which is a dark purple with a blue/Crimson glitter

Sultry Samhain Which is a metallic Burgandy

Purgatory is a black base with a metallic red

Raven's Prophecy is a dark black that shimmers pink & Turquoise

The small bottle is the pixie Epoxy (Description from the site:  The original! A must-have for shimmery, sparkling shadows! This is not an eye shadow primer, or really a base. It is to keep sparkles on and/or to make shimmery shadows appear "glossy": a foiled look without foiling.
Originally developed and formulated in 2007, this unique "glue" is designed to hold the sparkliest, most shimmery eye shadows in place, minimize "fallout", and also to easily create a foiled look without foiling. Don't worry, it's easily washed off, and while keeps shadows in a water-resistant state, the product itself is water-soluble (no silicones or oils). 

Plus they sent me a free sample Of Mermaid Masquerade with my order. It is a super rich blue. Now I know I shy away from blues but this is just stunning and fit in perfect with my other shadows.

The best part...I ordered the minis since I had not tried this brand before and my total order was under $15!!

I did use the pixie epoxy both times I wore these shadows. They wore all day without and creasing at all! Plus they wiped away easy at the end of the day.

Here are the colors...
Left to right is Sultry Samhain, Shinigami, Purgatory, Raven's Prophecy, & Mermaid Masquerade swatched over the pixie epoxy.

And here are my looks...
Here I used Sultry Samhain & Purgatory. At my brow I used Urban Decay eyeshadow in Polyester Bride. Finished with a black eyeliner on my waterline and Maybelline Volume Flash Mascara.

And this is my look today...

On the outside corner of my eye is Raven's Prophecy, In The middle is Shinigami, And the inside is Mermaid Masquerade. Under my eyes is Mermaid Masquerade on the inside and Raven's Prophecy on the outside. Again I used a dab of the pixie Epoxy on my lids before applying. I finished the look with Urban Decay Polyester Bride at my browline. I used Stila Waterproof Liner in Purple Tang & Doir Extase mascara.

So yeah....Madly in love with these shadows! Head over the Fyrinnae and pick some up today. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Fun with Urban decay....

Ok so today I started with Urban Decay Primer potion.
The dark Blue shadow is Urban Decay Evidence. The inside corner and Above the crease is Purple haze.
Above that we have Half Baked. At my Brow Line I used Polyester Bride.
Under my eyes I used Half Baked & Purple Haze.
Finished with a black eyeliner and Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara in black...
