Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in Lolita

Can we talk about this baby for a second? 

I have what seems to be the third incarnation of this ever elusive and forever sold out dusty rose shade, and let me tell you I love it. I thought about it for a looong time, like since the first one was still available when I heard the "old Lolita" was back, I thought alright now's the time. Looking at swatches online it seems this one is still darker than the original but I'm actually pretty happy with that because I feel like the original color would look a bit light on my skin tone.
She's just perfect.
Lip shot. Sorry about all the hair, never fails to get in the way. But how pretty is the color though?
Do I look surprised? I'm not, I promise.
This turned out to be a beautiful dusty rose shade perfect for every day. Though maybe don't wear it every day cos it might dry out your lips.  The texture is very light wight feels almost like nothing on the lips and as promised it dries down matte and lasts forever. Okay not forever but I've worn it for about seven-ish hours at a time meals and everything and it stays put until I remove it with some coconut oil. Towards the end of the day if it does start to feel a bit drying I just throw some chapstick on top and move on. 

For someone like me who hates touching up this is all kinds of perfect.

March 2015 Ipsy Bag: Floral Fantasy

Excuse the terrible cell phone shot.
I know March is almost over, no it's over. But I still wanted to share what was in my Ipsy bag this month. I'd have to say this was a pretty good month, and the bag is so cute, it's my new makeup bag replacing the one from May of last year.
Swatches of the eyeshadow duo and NYX buter gloss in Little Susie
Let's move on to the items, I received:
NYX Butter Lipstick in Little Susie- Perfect spring shade, glides on super easily. I was kinda hoping for Pops but I do see myself wearing this through summer.
Purlisse Cleanser- I love it, it's gentle and doesn't leave my face feeling tight and dry.
Pixi by Petra eyeshadow duo- Beautiful shades, great for every day wear and perfect for travel or just swiping it on quickly. The shadows are soft but not chalky or powdery and apply well even sans primer. I ended up giving this to my mom just because I have so many similar shades already that I love an wear regularly.
LeeAnni Eco Moisturizer- When I first tried it I thought it felt a little heavy, not like my usual super lightweight oil free moisturizer but the second time I tried it I used less and it went on so lightly and smooth. It fixed any dry patches I had without making th erest of my face extra oily. It has a faint rose smell which I actually enjoy. 
Infinity Shadow/Crease brush form Crown Brushes- I cannot tell you how excited I was to be receiving this brush. Let's just say very. It did not dissappoint, the bristles are soft and I love that it's dual sided, If you only had one shadow brush this one is perfect. The pencil point is great for depositing precise color on the crease and under eye as well as inner corner highlight, and the fluffier side can be used for sweeping shadow all over the lid, brow bone highlight and blending.

I can't wait to see what's in store for next month!

Playing Catch Up (this kinda turned into a vanity post)

Since I've been gone a while I thought i'd give you a little peek at what I've been into and up to!

Makeup: It's become a huge part of me and I plan on pursuing it as far as I can.
Loving alien mermaid creature looks at the moment.

I took my driver's permit test. I failed, time to try again this year!
I still love nail polish. This is one of my new favorites, Color Club in Harp on it:
 I dyed my hair a couple of times, first blue then green.
Don't mind my face...
I spent a ton of time with my family, it was a pretty good year. I even got to visit my Texan cousins which was the best. I can't wait to go back!
sorry about the feet. also, those shorts are amazing.
 I practiced tarot waaay more and I actually did a few successful readings for other people!

Well I'll end it here for now because it's getting too much but I have so many more things to show you so check back soon!

Happy 2015!

There's no better way to start off the new year than with a new planner. This is one I got at the dollar store ripped the cover off of and painted over. i'm sort of in love with it even though it's a bit crooked in some spots.
I absolutely love agendas/planners whatever, as you know I'm a list maker and these things just keep me on track which is something I most definitely need!
Keep a look out guys, there's more to come!

tie-dye and sunset nails.

Yes, another nail post. Obviously it's a thing with me! These were so fun to do and are super cute and springy. Here's what I did: I started with a base of white. Once the white was dry I sponged on four different colors: peachy pink, yellow, light blue, and lilac. When I was happy with my design I topped it off with my Seche Vite top coat.

Later I added a coat off Essie's Shine of the Times and it made the mani even prettier, almost opalescent. My nails feel like a freaking fairy and I'm totally loving it!

Here's another mani from a few weeks ago, I got the idea from Janelle at elleandish,she does such beautiful nail art:

It was a bit chipped by the time I took the picture but doesn't it make you feel like hitting the beach?

Spring nails and an obsession confession.

I bought a couple of new nail colors in the last week and I couldn't wait to try them out so I went for both! I used Essie's Nice is Nice and Haute as Hello(love the name). And for good measure I added little silver studs to my middle and ring fingers to give the mani a little something extra.
I don't know but lately I've been on a total makeup kick(okay, I'm totally obsessed), I've been buying things left and right, which I know I shouldn't but cute stuff! How could I resist? I'll have to show you some of my new goodies because they're so pretty and yeah...

I want to know: What is your current obsession?

Favorite spring nail polishes

Hello, and happy Easter! I hope everyone is having a good time, and if you don't celebrate Easter then happy Sunday! I thought I'd celebrate by sharing some of my favorite nail colors for the season. These are just some of my most worn colors this spring. Of course there are so many more I'd like to share but it might be a little too much! I'll probably be doing another mini compilation sometime closer to summer. anyway on to the good stuff!
From L to R: Wet'n'wild I need a Refreshmint, Revlon Electric, Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet, Confetti Belle of the Ball, and Sally Hansen Pacific blue.
I'm actually wearing one of these right now, it's Sally Hansen's Mint Sorbet. I love the color, and it's so opaque I can almost get away with just one coat! I'm wearing it along with another Sally Hansen polish from the same line in Golden-I, topped with gold glitter.

What are your favorite nail colors right now? I'd love to hear them.
