Born Pretty Store Fimo Sticks Review

I recently got the 100 pcs Cane Nail Art Fimo Fruit Shaped Stick w/ Cutter kit from Born Pretty.
If you don't know Fimo sticks are polymer clay that can be sliced and used as nail decoration. 

Look at the detail in the canes! 
In the kit:
100 fimo sticks
10x cutters
2x jewel empty boxes
1x glue

The Hello Kitty one is one of my favs of course :D
There is a spot on my thumb because a kitty fell off :(
  •  100 different Fimo Sticks (variety)
  • Comes with empty jewelery box
  • Decent price
  • The glue is not the strongest..
  • Some of the sticks are not my ideal choices (in my opinion)
  • It takes a while to get the hang of getting the "perfect slice"
These are great if you're trying something new. If you can get the hang of cutting the sticks evenly & correctly... It's worth it.

CARGO Voyages Gloss Collection Review + Swatches

I recently received a CARGO Voyages Gloss Collection for review. I'm a sucker for cute packing & color stories, so these became my summertime glosses. I was able to bring these babies everywhere!
These glosses are thin but smooth. 
Four out of five have micro glitter....which can be a pain for some.

This collection is $22.00 on
If your Canadian divide that into 5 adding HST.. that comes up to $4.97 each.

Color Pay off:
These colors are very sheer **It depends on your natural lip color**.
I find that I have to do 2-3 applications to get some color pay off.



My favorite colors are Tokyo, Paris & Serengeti.
Las Vegas is too light & Morocco is too glittery.

What do you think?

Do you change your fragrances each season?

I don't!

I'm more of a Bath & Body Works kinda girl, so I basically buy what smells good. Of topic I love their sales! 

3 for 10, 75%-90% off and their freebies with purchases are my fav!

I will admit that I might indulge in a holiday collection or two but overall I don't retire scents.

What about you? 
Do you change your fragrances according to the season?

Every girl needs a OttLite Natural Makeup mirror

Every makeup artist + beauty junkie knows how important it is to have natural light/good lighting when doing your makeup. I remember my beauty days before I got my certificate.. doing my makeup before work in the bathroom.

WRONG move! 
It would usually end up with me spending more time wiping it off than putting it on. Those are the times I wish I had a OttLite Natural Makeup mirror.
Bring the accuracy and beauty of OttLite natural lighting indoors to help you apply makeup flawlessly for a confident look with no surprises once you go outside. The secret to the OttLite Makeup mirror is the precise blend of light wavelengths – OttLite® 508 Illumination™.
This mirror will help me:
  • On MUA shoots (indoor ones of course)
  • Filming youtube videos ( when the sun goes down)
  • Taking product swatches for the blog
Mirror Breakdown

* Dual sided mirror features 5x/1x magnification (Perfect for tweezing!)
* True to color tones
* Fashionable prints which can match any room
* Movable head
* One button touch to turn on

$69.99 is pricey for some but trust me it's worth the investment!

These swatches were taken with the Ottlite mirror. Doesn't it look like I was near a mirror!

My favorite Summer Lipstick was MAC Romancin'

The number one lipstick that stayed in my bag for the whole Summer was MAC's Romancin'.

Unfortunately it's no longer available since it was from the Adoring Carmine collection awhile back. I'm so happy I got my hands on it at the MAC warehouse sale.

Romancin' is a creamy magenta lipstick. It will work for every skin tone especially WOC because it's blue based.
                                                 That just screams summer to me <3
What was your favorite summer lipstick?

Fall 2011 Beauty: Annabelle Smudgepaint in Skyline Review

I've been on the hunt for a Navy blue eyeliner since I seen this picture of Rihanna.

Every product I used so far to get this look has been either too dark, light,dry or just plain ugly. 

I gave up recently until I got the chance to try out Annabelle Smudgepaint in Skyline!
Creamy gel-shadow + liner with a velvety smooth, crease free, smudge free texture that will survive anything life throws at you! Its long-lasting waterproof formula glides on easily for a mess free look.
Liner Breakdown:
Multifunction- can be used as a liner and "shadow"
Rich pigmented color
Creamy & easy to use
Pretty long lasting

Some may forget to clean the brush because it's built inside the handle.


Here is a picture of skyline. I didn't line my bottom lid heavily because I was going out to dinner.
Love this color on my skintone!

Ladies if you see these in stores.. pick them up!! 
I think these are definitely some of my Fall must haves.

Are you a fan of Navy blue eyeliner?
