CCO Haul


Over the weekend DH (darling husband) and I went to the outlets in Leesburg and I was able to pick up a few goodies from the CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet)!
They still had a few MAC 2008 Holiday palettes so I bought Intriguing Scarlet: Warm Eyes and Infatuating Rose: Cool Eyes.

They didn't have a huge selection of Paint Pots but I didn't have a blue cream base in my collection so I picked up Rollickin' Paint Pot.

I also bought a backup of Pleasureseeker from the Neo Sci Fi Collection and a Tinted Lip Conditioner with SPF 15 in Strobe Kiss. I'm really diggin the Tinted Lip Conditioner because it's a little sheer with a pink tint & it's extremely moisturizing. I might have to pick up a backup when I go back. :)

I perused the pigment section and Reflects Very Pink & Reflects Duo Purple caught my eye. The colors are so bright and shimmery and I couldn't wait to do a look with them. When I got home and swatched them they were very sheer and not pigmented at all! I think I might have to layer them on top of an eyeshadow because they are so sheer. :( I was really disappointed with these two products. If anyone has any tips for these two please let me know.

Well, that's all for now!

Purple EOTD


For this EOTD I used the following products:

Stila Pon Pon Gerbera eyeshadow trio (the dark pink e/s) all over lid
MAC Stars 'N' Rockets - crease
MAC Carbon - outer v
MAC Vanilla - brow highlight
Almay Intense i-color in Purple Amethyst - lower lash line
L'oreal HiP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in black
Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express in Glam Black


Hello lovlies!
So I've decided to start a blog. It will mainly contain posts about beauty & fashion however I might throw in a few craft & wedding related posts. I love reading about other beauty blogger's hauls & reviews so I decided to take a stab at it myself. Other than hauls & reviews I'll also include posts with EOTDs (eye of the day), FOTD (face of the day) & NOTD (nail of the day).
So I hope you enjoy this and thanks for reading!
