Ruby Kisses Nail Polishes

I went to my local Beauty Supply Store(BBS) to get a few trinkets, and on display were the Ruby Kisses nail polishes. Such a variety of bright spring colors, that's what actually drew my attention to them. They are so pretty!! Just my shopaholic's luck they were on sale..:)). Usually Ruby Kisses nail polishes range from 2 to 3 bucks, well they were ONLY .99 cents....Yesssssssss! I only picked up the four colors that really said "BUY ME" But I will Be back(in my terminator's voice.)

Teal Envy
 The colors I chose are: (From left to right)
1."Look At Me Purple
2.Teal Envy
3.Tropical Blend
4.Pinked Out

These nail polishes are very creamy, has good coverage, I applied 2 coats to get true color.They seem to have a semi-gloss finish, which I like! The application goes on smooth, and dries in fairly decent time. The fact that my hands stay in water alot of the times, it's hard for me to tell how long these nail polishes last, and the fact that I change colors often. For these nail polishes to be only .99 cents, they are so worth buying again & again.

DIY Facial Scrub

Pic Belongs to Google Images
The Picture above does not belong to me, however, I have my own personal DIY(do it yourself) facial scrub concoction,which works wonders! I use all natural ingredients that can be found in your kitchen or a supermarket. I have combination skin,and sometimes can be very stubborn to products. I do not have sensitive skin, but have realized that some products I have purchased have irritated my skin. So, I went on a journey to find the best homeade facial scrub, and I have found it! Remember, all skin types are different, so what works for me may not work for you! I purchased a few "so called" organic facial products that claim to be so natural(i'm a no and have read the back of the jar, container whatever it's packaged in,and all I find is ingredients that a science lab tech could only know the meaning of it!

What I used to create the facial scrub
1.Sugar/ not too fine/brown  or white
3.Green Tea
5.Olive Oil/Virgin
6.Vitamin E Oil
8.Coffee Grind/ Optional
Mix together until it becomes paste-like, and that's it!

I actually wet my  face with cold water, then take a small amount(quarter-size) and rub all over the face,wash with cold water. This is Great for dry skin, because it moisturizes, however, for combination to oily you may want to use a toner after, to draw out some of the oil. The budget friendly thing about this is, you can make as much as you need without keep re-purchasing...uhmmm Money Saver!

If anyone has any other great DIY ideas, please feel free to share!

My Hobby Lobby Fave Blush Brush

Master's Touch 1"425 Oval Mop

Tapered Sable Hair
 As we all know, Craft stores & art supply stores come in handy, for make-up addicts. I have found some really inexpensive crafty products in stores like Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Just recently, I went to Hobby Lobby to pick out some glitters, basically browsing; when I ran across some brushes by a company called "Master's Touch." This company has many different types of brushes, however, this particular one caught my eye. This Oval Mop brush is AMAZING!!!  It's so soft, picks up product precise,and just enough! It has quite a long handle, but does not affect anything. At first,I didnt like the shellac wood handle, but it actually grew on me; I prefer black handle brushes. Washing was excellent, almost no-shedding or didnt have to worry about dyes, which is a plus!
The cost of the brush was $10.99, however, Hobby Lobby was having a %50 Off sale at the time, so I paid less than 6 bucks...(I should have bought more)
How would I rate this brush....uhmmmmm ........a freaking 4+ I love this brush for applying blush. If you gals  or guys have a Hobby Lobby Or Michaels, go and check it out! I promise it will be so worth it!

Btw...I also purchased a full set of detail brushes from Master's Touch, for miscellaneous things and they work great as well!

I Finally Found-ation!

Queenie Keisha's Beauty blog
For the longest, I have not worn foundation, because it was so hard to find the correct color match, formula, something without making my skin itch, and very light coverage. The funny thing is, I have tried soooooo many different brands to be disappointed!! But as of yesterday, experimenting like a Mad Scientist,I finally got it!
Okay, I purchased the Revlon's Colostay in Cappuccino & Amber a few weeks ago, mixed the two together, the concoction was good. A little too dark, so I had to add a little more of the amber to lighten it up a bit! I actually got this idea from "Holmique".We are very close in complexion and she used the same color cappuccion except she mixed hers with caramel. But anyway, I had to mix and mix until I matched the color perfectly...Voila! I  thought I could never get away with wearing Foundation, but now it looks like I'm not wearing any,rather than before, looking ashy, grey, or like a mortician did my
I probably will not wear foundation all the time, but its good to know that I have that option and feel comfortable!
If anyone has any suggestions about any other foundation that is good high-end or drug store,Please let me know! Im pretty sure I could find something better, if not, im satisfied with this...For now!

Can anyone tell me if they ever used the Revlon's Colorstay Foundation, and what are the pros & cons???

I will be hosting  a gieveaway when I get to 50 followers...Yay!!!

Until 2 weeks ago, I've never  heard of Sp3ctrum Cosmetics. I was on FB and Badassplatinum posted Sp3ctrum cosmetics on her wall because they were having and still having a $1 day sale on pigments. She always post all make-up sales, promo codes and bunch of other goodies, for her YT & FB friends...Thnx:))
Well I decided to try Sp3ctrum Cosmetics out!  The  Owner is Amber Rose(not her) and she's an esthetician from California. She creates mineral make-up that is FDA approved and non pore clogging. Sp3ctrum Cosmetics also supports Autism Research, which 30% of all proceeds are donated...Love It!
When I went to the site, I saw a link to Sp3ctrum's YT Channel. Amber Rose has videos about Sp3ctrum cosmetics and  her eyeshadow line. Speaking on the eyeshadows, they are so pretty and Vibrant and I LOVE how she named them...ex. A Woman's Secret(Purple-ish color) Black Body Radiation(Black-Multi sparkle) Caution(Bright-yellow Gold).
So I decided to take advantage of the $1day sale. I purchased 14 sample size shadows because those are the ones on sale for a buck, this way I'm able to check out a few shadows. The Pressed shadows are 5 bucks and loose pigments are 10 bucks. They do carry other things like, glitter, lipgloss, palettes ,and she also customizes shadows of your choice...that's great!
Here is  the list of what I purchasesd:  *Reminder these are sample size 5gm Jar with 1.02 gram of eyeshadow*
1.Sugared Belgian Waffle
4.Black Body Radiation
5.A Woman's Secret
6.The Woman In Black
7.Pink Kryptonite
8.Red Velvet Mud Pie (2x)
9.Take Off Your Cool
10. Rokk'n The Beat
11.Down Home Voodoo
12.4 Am Parking Lot
13. Urban Chic

Here are swatches:

4 Am Parking Lot/Light Green with gold sparkle

Urban Chic/ Black with purple& Turquoise sparkle

Blk Body Radiation/ blk with multi-sparkle

Down Home Voodoo/Brwn with Teal Reflex

Brown With Copper-tone Reflex

Take Off Your Cool/Soft Blue With Light Blue Sparkle

Magenta Pink/With Metallic Finish

Caution/ Bright Yellow with Yellow multi Sparkle

A Woman's Secret/ Dark Plum Purple With Hot pink & blue sparkle

Sugared Belgian Waffle/ Brwn-Peach Champagne

Famous/ Muted Gold With gold-multi sparkle

Red Velvet Mud Pie/Purple-Burgandy with Hot pink Sparkle

The Woman In Black/ Black With Red & Pink sparkle
My Review, I really like these shadows alot; I like the way she blended the colors together so well. I did swatch some on my hand and the pigmentation have a great punch, however ,must apply a base in order for shadows to be vibrant and stick. I truly have no complaints about these pigments, and I'm very happy with my purchase and I plan to order a few more is the link....Go And check it out!!!

I  will create a few looks with these shadows on my YT Channel for tutorials!

Thanx to all my BFF's

Accessory Freak!

I find any reason to buy accessories.....and I love it! I recently went to a store in my town "Its Fashion" to do my usual browsing inventory. This store not only carry accessories but , urban wear, work clothes, casuals, shoes, under garments and more. Similar to a Rainbow, or Pretty Girl, or Pay half for my NY up northern Readers. But I usually go there to catch their accessory sales that are Crazy! I have found earings, bracelets, even complete  Necklace & earings sets for a low as .99 cents..yes!
This particular set was marked down from 7.99 to1.99..I couldnt believe it when I saw it! It is soo pretty. An antique gold leaves in layered design with aqua beads draping down the necklace and earings......2 bucks!

One of the things I truly love about this store "It's Fashion" is, U can always find something different in there, as well its a store that caters to women of all ages. Much more to!

Thnx to all my Bff's and let me know whatcha think! Is this something you would wear?

Estee Lauder Double Wear Eyeshadow in Ivory Lace

Well I should have posted this a while ago, Sorry Im just getting to it! In my CCO Haul, I purchased a few Mac items, and one Estee Lauder product, not intentionally. The CCo had some great things there but had only 1 paint pot(cant think which one, burgandy color) so, I wasnt interested. So I walked over to the Bobbi Brown section, then Estee Lauder when I noticed rows of the Double E/S.. Thank GOD! I've never tried a paint pot, but the E.L has Great reviews about staying power. They had a huge selection of colors but I chose to get "Ivory Lace" because, its a very light color with a sheer pearl like-finish. To compare to UD(Urban Decay) not as tacky, and packaging is not an inconvenience, furthermore, I only paid 13 bucks;)). I really, really like the E.L Double wear; does not crease at all and a little goes a long way! The sales woman in the CCO also agreed that it's a great base for shadows, However, I would not wear as a shadow, well the color I chose. I kinda regret not buying the other 2 I had my eyes on, I didnt want regrets after purchasing, due to the fact, the CCO is over an hour ride:((
I would rate the Estee Lauder x2 wear a 4 out of 5!!!

BTW..I really like the packaging for depotting other!

Thanks to all my Bff's & let me know your thoughts if you tried this product!!

Love<3 ProfeChanel
