Phototutorial: Pink Bow Ties.

I was inspired to this tutorial because of a Makeup Forever Labshine t-shirt I have.  I know, that doesn't really make a lot of sense, but these are the colors on the shirt, and that's what I wanted to capture, even if I didn't use Makeup Forever products to do it.

In today's tutorial, I use Tarte's Lash Primer & Gifted mascara, MSC pigments Adipose, Hello Sweetie, Bow Ties are Cool and the Silence, MSC Optimus Primer, and the Too Faced 3-Way Lash Lining Tool.

Phototutorial: MSC's the Bride

Today's look is inspired by the fact that I have yet to meet a Madd Style Cosmetix green that I didn't absolutely love.  Seriously, it's a fact.  The Bride arrived in the mail and it was love at first sight.

Mail time: Plant Fusion Vegan Protein Powders!

I wasn't expecting to be doing a blog on this today, but the package came & I was too excited to not share this right away with you guys!  I recently spoke with Scott of Plant Fusion to inquire about their protein powder.  I'd heard a lot of great things and wanted to try the different flavors before I bought a tub because something like Chocolate Raspberry sounds great in theory, but can go terribly wrong in powder form, haha.  I am excited to say that he went above and beyond with this package!  I can't wait to try all of the flavors out & give a full write up because I know a LOT of protein powder users feel the same way about flavors as I do.. "could be good, could be very, very bad."

Review: Palmolive Fresh Infusions Dish Soap!

Influenster sent me this lovely box right here!  It is the Palmolive Box, and as someone who likes the consistency of their dish soap, I'm pretty excited to be chosen to review them.

Mailtime & Review: Sunwarrior Protein & Supplements!

I spoke with Ashley at Sunwarrior to find out more about the brand and she was very friendly and customer service oriented!  She sent me some samples to try out because, as you guys know, Clancy is helping me eat better and we're about to join a gym... he's essentially my personal trainer.  He makes me smoothies pretty regularly, and I bought myself a blender bottle for on the go.  Several of these mixes are perfect for just mixing with "milk", water or coconut water on the go, so I took them to work with me and drank them during my long hours in retail.  For those of you who don't know, that's putting a LOT of trust into the brand, haha.

Madd Style Cosmetix Haul!

At last!! It's arrived!!  I technically placed this order back in October or November, but due to a paypal glitch, this package went to an old address and we had to wait out the process.  But here it is!  This is the Alice In Zombieland Collection, the Shaun of the Dead Collection, the Halloween Grab Bag, Candy Floss, Weeping Angel, Hello Sweetie, the Silence, Bow Ties are Cool, Optimus Primer in a pot (woo hoo!), Rebel Lollipop blush, and samples of All Nighter & Are You My Mummy?  I am going to try to get some swatches happening tomorrow, but my main priority is getting Clancy to actually get some sleep tomorrow.  Clearly, this photo doesn't show much besides a whole crap ton of pigment pots, haha.  =]

Disclaimer: I paid for most of these items. A handful of the pigments were "payment" for being a brand model.
