Collective June Haul/Review! (some swatches)

Hey guys! Oh my goodness. It's been so long since I had a blog post. If you follow me on twitter (which most of you do) you know I've been a little overwhelmed with my new job, the wedding, house stuff... just life in general, so I took a break from blogging.

I've collected a good amount of new makeup stuffs so far this month and I wanted to share it all in one big post! There aren't a lot of swatches because it's kind of blah outside and the photos aren't coming out well.

A more detailed look after the jump...

An unimaginably delayed FOTD

So a few weeks ago... I want to say 3 or so... I talked about how I was going to be brave and post my FOTD. I wasn't lying! I was using a really old computer that somehow *cough* got some pretty nasty viruses on it and these viruses prevented me from using Google or Google based site (see : blogger.) I got a new computer last week so now I can start posting again! Hooray!

This FOTD was inspired by A Brilliant Brunette's look called "Bright Sunset". I linked it so you all can see the original look. I just have to say I LOVE her looks. More often than not, if I want to try something new, I use Jacqueline's looks. Her and Morena Barbee. It's a toss up. Anyway.

Not a great pic, but it is what it is.  I'll post a close up of the eye after the list of products I used!


L'Oreal Magic Perfecting primer
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer and foundation. (Now, obviously, I do not have alot of aging that I need to rewind but this foundation is AMAZING. A review will be up sometime soon. And maybe a face routine VIDEO!?).
CoverGirl Loose finishing powder
MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle
theBalm blush in Frat Boy


NYX eyeshadow base in skin tone

Maybelline Color Tattoo  in Fierce & Tangy on the inner corner of the lid, Pomegranate Punk on the middle of the lid , and Painted Purple on the outer part of the lid and up into the crease.

I packed colors over the cream shadow, all from my BH cosmetics 120 palette...first edition I think? I circled all of colors I used in the palette. This isn't a great picture either. I'm working on a light box to take better photos.

I used the orange, dark purple and hot pink on my lower lash line as well

Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil on lower lash line
and Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara

Lips :

Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
Benefit gloss in Spiked Punch.

Close up of the eye :

This was my first FOTD post! Hopefully I can work it out to get better photos for the next time.

Upcoming posts : Wet n Wild 8-pan palette reviews/swatches. Review on Instant Age Rewind foundation. Possible foundation routine.

My first blog award!!

Hey ladies! OMG so I am super excited this morning. I woke up to an email about new comments (which I already love to get), and this comment was from Jennifer at Adventures in Beauty. She had given me my very first blog award!

She tagged me with the Cute Blog Award. It has some questions to answer and then I will be tagging some other ladies with it!

Cute Blog Award

1. Link back to the person who awarded you.
2. Answer the award questions.
3. Tell something about yourself that you haven't told anyone on your blog yet.
4. Award as many blogs as you think worthy of this award.
5. Make sure to let everyone you gave this award to know that you awarded them.

The Award Questions
What is your go-to makeup brand?

I don't really have a *go to* brand, over all. What I have the most of is Urban Decay. I LOVE their palettes. I have 5 or 6 of their palettes, eyeliners, and de-slick finishing spray.

What was your favorite fashion trend of 2011?
I'm not really an on-trend person so I don't keep up with what's hot and what's not fashion wise. A trend that did catch my eye (but I did not participate in) was color block clothing.

What is your favorite dessert?
Cupcakes! I love cupcakes! They're small, colorful, creative, and delicious. I'm eating a cupcake right now. Yup. It's only 9 a.m. and I'm chowin' down on a cupcake.

Favorite color?
Pink! I love all things pink and/or sparkly. If I had it my way, my whole house would be pink/sparkles/cupcakes/girl things. It would look like a Barbie dream house.

What is your middle name?
Sara Elizabeth.

What's the last song you listened to?
The Cave by Mumford and Sons. 

Cats or dogs?

Dogs! We have both, but I kind of, really, dislike cats. They're just mean to me.

One of my 2 dogs, Gracie the Beagle

Some thing you didn't know about me is....
I am a worrier. I worry about everything. EVERYTHING. It causes me to be extremely stressed out to the point of tears a lot, usually over something stupid.

The award states you're suppose to list as many blogs as you want but I follow a lot of blogs. Jennifer already tagged a couple of people that I will follow, so I'm going to go with 5 blogs! 

Rai from Glam-Morena
Jacqueline from A Brilliant Brunette
Laisa from Chica Bloggerista
Beverly from Fully Beatable
Cathy from My Pinktastic Life
