Fall Beauty Trend Watch- Dark Plum Lips

This color is very appropriate for Fall and plays on that ever so popular vampire theme. I love the fact that this is a trend can can be shared by all women.  More importantly you can find this finish in matte, stain, glosses...need I go on!

My recommendation for Dark Plum lips on WOC would be to pair it with gold & bronzed eyes.

My recommendation for Dark Plum lips on fair skin tones would be to pair it with dark eyes to make your eyes pop!

My favorite dark plum lip is faceatelier lipstick in revenge:

So my question to you is how do you feel about Dark Plum Lips?

Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Masque Review

A couple of months ago I was given a few Cellnique items to try out.

1. Derma Brightening Complex
2. D’sensi Cream
3. Advanced Bio Renewal Masque

 The one product that worked with my skin was the Advanced Bio Renewal Masque. 
This unparalleled scrub masque is formulated with bio-captured fresh fruit enzymes and acids complex. It works effectively in exfoliating dead cells, optimizing cellular renewal performance and deep pore cleansing, thus revealing a softer, fresher and healthier skin.
I really liked how my soft skin felt after using the mask. The best part is the micro beads which makes exfoliating easy. If you don't like overly fruity scents I wouldn't recommend this because its very strong. Personally I didn't have a problem keeping it on my face 20 minutes.

Honestly the ($51.00) price is a major set back. That is A LOT of money to spend on one product but I will admit this jar will last awhile!

I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin, so the D’sensi Cream & Derma Brightening Complex didn`t work for me.

I may re-introduce it during the winter months to see if there is any change.

How much would you spend on a lipstick?

I love random post where I get to know more about my followers.

Personally I would never spend over $24.00. To some people that might seem crazy.. BUT If I really like it... why not?

Truthfully I know I could search around for a dupe but that`s time consuming..lol.

BH Cosmetics 10 pcs Deluxe Brush Set

I got a 10 piece brush set to try from BHcosmetics. I have everything from high end to low end in my kit but I wanted some affordable brushes for my personal use. I actually got these brushes in June.. So I had a few months to test them. I even brought them to Cuba..lol.

These brushes come in convient black zippered pouch which can easily fit in your purse.

fFace brushes are on the left.. eye brushes are on the right.
• Powder brush
• Blush brush
• Foundation brush
• Smudge brush
• Large eyeshadow brush
• Small eyeshadow brush
• Eyebrow brush
• Lip brush
• Pointed Eye Liner Brush
• Mascara brush

Now on to the different brushes:

They are very soft but not flimsy. Most of the brushes are made out of natural hair which means less pigment fall out. Also I have not seen any brush fall out when I washed them.

Price: The brush set is affordable at $39.99 US. Which means each brush works out to around $3.99US or $4.19 CDN. I have brushes which cost more than this brush set! So That`s a steal for 10 brushes.

Here are some close ups of the brushes: 

Powder Brush

Blush brush..which I think looks more like a contour brush...
Foundation brush..pretty thick and NOT flimsy

Mascara brush & Lip brush..I use the lip one for my eyes because it`s thin.
Smudge brush..I love using this for packing on color.

Large eyeshadow brush
Eyebrow brush

Small eyeshadow brush & Pointed Eye Liner Brush..which looks like a lip brush.

I like these brushes  and would recommend them but I really wish they had a crease or blending brush in the kit.

FOTD: Quick & Easy Smokey Eyes using E.L.F

I know I have been posting a lot of E.L.F products lately. Last month they had a 60% off sale and I had to take advantage!

This is the look I wore out on my date with the bf. As usual I was running late and had to make-up time quickly :) I just layered Charcoal all over my lid & covered up the harsh lines in Wild Wheat. 

Honestly it took less thank 5 minutes!
