Wet N' Wild

Hi Dolls!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I wanted to do a review on Wet N’ Wild products, a very affordable brand everyone can add to their makeup collection. 
When it comes to makeup, I am all about richness and highly pigmented products. And when it comes to makeup, sometimes you get what you pay for. BUT, not when we are talking Wet N’ Wild matte lipsticks and shadow collections. 

If you all haven’t heard of Wet N’ Wild, I would be surprised. It’s been around forever it feels like. It was my go to drugstore makeup brand when I was first starting out, lets say 7th grade. I haven’t used it in quite a spell and thought I would see if they have stepped up their game, which they surely have.

I am loving their semi-matte MEGA LAST lipsticks right now. The pigment in these lipsticks are out of this world. They are matte, yet have a beautiful cream finish.  These glide on easily and provide you with beautiful moisture and rich color for a good 6 hours. I can have my morning coffee and eat lunch before having to reapply! Better yet, they are a bargain price at $1.89 a piece. With twenty-five luscious shades to pick from, I am sure there is one out there for most everyone to enjoy ;)

My two favorites that I cannot seem to get enough of lately are, Don’t Blink Pink (brighter shade) and Think Pink (lighter shade). I tell ya, I can never get enough beautiful pinky nude shades in my collection and I am a sucker for anything bright lately. Don’t Blink Pink is a great dupe to MAC’s- Girl About Town and Think Pink is a great dupe to MAC’s- Please Me.
Ever thought about playing up your eyes with some colored shadows, but never feel like spending the bucks on products to do so? Wet N' Wild’s COLOR ICON Eye shadow Collections are fabulous. They include eight beautiful, highly pigmented shadows that are great to play around with, especially if you are new to color. They also help you with defining where to apply what color.

With the holidays just around the corner, you definitely want to add at least one of these great palates to your collection. Looks are endless with the variety of shades offered in each palate. The two palates that I have been loving are Petal Pusher and Blue Had Me at Hello. There is also a third palate that I have yet to get my hands on, called Comfort Zone. As you can see below, the highly pigmented colors are amazing. At 6$ a piece, you truly cannot resist these collections.


If any of you have any requests for future posts, I would love to hear them. If you would like to see a tutorial with these shadows, just say the word :)
I want to share so many more posts with you all, just wish there was more time in the day ;)

Be sure and have yourselves a fabulous week!

Happy TGIF Dolls!
Living in Michigan this month, I am not sure to flip on a pair of sandals or bust out the boot collection with this weather we have been having. No matter where you Fall or Winter- boots should be a functional and fashionable piece to everyone's closet.
For me, I cannot get enough of the ankle booties this season. They are comfy, versatile, stylish, trendy and affordable buy.
Call me a boot-a-holic, I bought these beauties below in early August ;)
What to pair with these boots you all ask.
From Left to Right:
1. I would pair this tan wedge ankle boot with a pair of black skinny jeans, a carmel oversized top, and a black leather bomber jacket. If you are a bit daring, I would throw on a floppy hat and a bold berry lip.

2. I would pair this black wedged beauty with a great pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, a great statement t-shirt, and an oversized above the knee sweater jacket.

3. Pair these fun fringe heeled boots with a great fall floral maxi dress and a jean jacket. Or a skinny jean and classy kimono.
4. This fun pair of black wedge boots are unfortunately sold out, but I found you a similar look that I actually like better! Pair this fun pair of black booties with just about anything. A pair of black leggings and over sized t-shirt comes to my mind. Also this bootie would look great with a casual dress, bomber jacket, and a great hat.

Better yet ladies, these boots are not only fierce and fabulous, they are all under $30! Pretty much a steal I'd say.

In my eyes it is never too early to buy for the season ahead!

Taking any and all suggestions for my next post :) Have yourselves a fabulous weekend!

Berry Beautiful Lippies

Hi Dolls! :)

Hope everyone is having a great week. Half of September has already flown by. I cannot believe it!

Fall is my favorite time of the year for many reasons. One being Fall fashion and beauty.
I could not be more thrilled with the fact that the bold berry lip is in high demand this Fall. Purples, berries, and red lippies to me scream fierce and fabulous.

I often pair these bold lips with a neutral eye and a clean face. If I am going out for cocktails and dancing, or a fancy dinner, I may kick it up a notch with a cat eye and some false lashes.
Here are just a few I picked up recently.

From Left to Right

Milani- Sangria
Revlon- Berry Haute
Revlon- Cherries in the Snow
Maybelline- Blissful Berry
Cover Girl Lipslicks- 215

 Cover Girl Wetslicks- Cranberry Splash

 These swatches are one swipe of each color. I paired both Cover Girl products together in the last swatch. These lipsticks are very pigmented and you can build them for a more dramatic look.

Not sure you can rock this look? Sure you can! Take baby steps and start off with a lighter shade ;)

1. Find your favorite celebrity figure who is rocking the dark berry lip to help you mimic the look. Beyonce, Katy Perry, Coco Rocha, and Khloe Kardashian are just to name a few.

2. The lighter your skin, the more dramatic the look. Decide how much of a statement you want to make and adjust your look accordingly.

3. Be sure and outline your lips with a lip pencil close to the shade of your lipstick. Any drugstore brand will do. This will give you a symmetric overall look. Apply lipstick with a brush for longer wear if you do not have a steady hand.

4. Your lips are doing all the talking. Be sure and keep your skin fresh, clean, and dewy. Make your eyes pop with your favorite mascara. Want an added pop to this look, amp it up with a pair of falsies.

Many of you may ask what would you wear with this lip? Your options are endless! Try a great pair of skinny jeans, over the knee boots and bomber jacket. A great cocktail dress . A pair of palazzo pants and a great tank.
Lets just say, you can pair this lip with as simple as a t-shirt and boyfriend jeans.


Any skin tone can rock this BERRY BEAUTIFUL LIP :)

Let me know what color you ladies are digging this season.
Be sure and have yourself a great week!

Nailed It

Hi Dolls!
Oh, it has been too long. Three weeks too long. I do apologize! I have definitely missed blogging to you all these past few weeks. Life has been a little chaotic. Pray you never get a kidney stone. They are truly miserable in more ways than you can count.
Is everyone ready for FALL? I sure am :) But that doesn't mean you can neglect your pretty fingers and toes.
Who doesn't love getting pampered with a great mani or pedi?! It is relaxing and you walk out of the salon looking like a million bucks. But who has the time or even the money to get your fingernails and toes painted every 2 weeks.
Not everyone....
Anyone dread painting their own nails? I just don't have the time or patience to allow them to dry completely. So what ends up happening....I will think they are dry, then I go do something around the house and I am wrong every time. I should have waited another 5 or 10 minutes for them to dry. Back to square one.
Well ladies, stress no more. Thanks to a couple special people in my life, I was recently introduced to a product I call " A Girls Best Friend."
A total steal right!
It is so simple. Paint your fingernails and toes. Apply 1-2 express dry drops on each nail after painting. Super easy. Your nails and cuticles will also get enriched with Vitamin E and almond oil at the same time. Your nails will be dry in 60 seconds or less. I PROMISE! You truly cannot beat this. An amazing product and its $2.99

I hope you all enjoy this product. A quick trip to Ulta is where its at.
I hope you all have an amazing week. Thanks for reading :)

FYI-I blog about only things that I have tried and tested myself. I do not get paid to do this. I do this because I love it :)
