Tarte Natural Lip Stain and Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain Review and Swatches

Doctor Who Cosplay
Check it.

Not tall enough, tie is a LITTLE too tight, but the suit, hair, chucks (they need a little dirt and grime but they’ll do none the less), and gestures are cosplay at its best.

Loves it?

Thanks to my little DD for sending this sweet piece along after her visit at Dragon Con last week! Personally she should have gotten me a big wet kiss from Wil Wheaton but I’ll settle for pics of good cosplay hehe!

Sigh, try not to miss the 10th too hard after that little babble.

Anyway…………….

Check it out.

I finally got a chance to try out the Tarte Natural Lip Stain plus the Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain. OMG how did I live without it?

Shiseido Perfect Complexion Kit Review and Swatches

There’s something terribly appealing about flawless skin but I gotta say that the idea of complexion perfection packaged in a neat-o little box for under $50 kinda makes me hyper.

Meet the new Shiseido Perfect Complexion Kit.

Laura Mercier started the flawless box trend but Shiseido steals this show with some pretty incredible offerings in a single box for perfecting your face and getting you looking all kinds of stupid flawless.

You NEED this.

My $25 Buck Laura Mercier Fall FOTD

Laura Mercier 2

Not quite Fall yet but I’m already diving into warmer shades of color. How about you? Urban Decay’s Naked Palette is going to come in quite handy as soon as the cooler weather starts in.

This morning, I decided to give my face and eyes a bit of Fall. I snagged three Laura Mercier products on sale recently, they set me back, mmmm ’bout $26 bucks so it was a steal considering how costly Laura’s cosmetics are. I used a liner, shadow, and a blush to do up the look and added lipstick and gloss from my stash.

Smashbox Baked Cheek & Highlighter Blossom Review and Swatches

Smashbox Blossom Baked Cheek and Highlighter 1

Smashbox’s Fall Collection, Masquerade should be at your local Sephora. Have you seen it? Haul any of it? Wanting to? What did you think so far?

Along with the release Smashbox Masquerade Baked Fusion Soft Lights Palette was introduced which is a very pretty palette however a little overly done since Clinique has similar palettes and heck Smashbox has done and redone this style of highlighter before.

But…

We aren’t afraid of things that have been redone and I’m always of the mentality, as are most of you, that one can never have too many pretty powders.

Which is why I wanted to introduce you to Smashbox Blossom Baked Cheek & Highlighter which could prove to be a nice investment.

Smashbox O-Gloss Noir Review and Swatches

Smashbox O Gloss Noir 1

Ok, I think I’m finally out of denial. I’m come to the conclusion I can’t do plummy, black gothy lips. Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment proved it to me, and Bobbi Brown Black Velvet is busy taking me down and telling me how I so can’t do the vampy lip look, and now Smashbox O-Gloss Noir may be proving that this Fall trend is just not for the likes of Muse’s like me.
