Christmas was a lovely day as usual spent with my family and love ones. I enjoyed this Christmas a lot even though I didn't do any clubbing this year. My besties was out of town and the BF wasn't even in the party mood (even though I don't like partying with him now, our first 4 yrs we did all that like crazy). I'd rather hang with the girls and have our drink on or just get crazy in the club (good crazy).
We had our traditional family cooking by my mom and sisters. My mom did some crazy cooking and baking. I enjoyed everything from the dinner to our dessert : fruit cake with Sorrel and fruit salad. I was so full that night. I received gifts also but I wasn't even looking forward to gifts just thankful for my family and the love we all have.

I received an early Christmas present from a lovely blogger and friend Vixxan. This was too nice of her. I loved everything and I didn't expect all these lovely products. Thank you dear. I truly appreciate it.
My BF gave me two perfume set: Jean Paul Gautier and Calvin Klein collection (he didn't know that I have a nausea reaction to Calvin Klein from when I was pregnant with our baby). He felt embarassed about the situation and decided he'll return it for something else. Also I received a cellphone I've been wanting also from him... yayyyy!!
Both of us were super excited because our lil mini 'us' (our baby girl
) was super excited about her gifts. She is soon to be 2 yr old and just too smart. She received her lovely Kitchen set and oh my, she has been going crazy with it. No more going in the kitchen and taking every spoon and fork from the utensil drawer and playing with them. She now has her own kitchen goodies to play with. I can't get enough her, truly my blessing

Here are pictures of the items from Vixxan and also swatches.

Thank you Vixxan

Here is my lovely mini me and I. I am super crazy in love when it comes to her.

makeup look for the Xmas

Be fabulous and Have a terrific New Year!

Lips of the Day


Here I did some lip color combinations: Red and Purples are a few of my fave lip colors now and never get old for me.

Here is a combination of Revlon Matte Lip color: Really Red with a gift from the lovely Vixxan a lip gloss from Joie' Kollection in Velvet Red.

Another lip color is one which I have been searching for since I saw a blog post on this Revlon collection: Purple Passion. I finally found this lip color to try it and love it. Even though I expected a brighter color on me but it's a sheer dark color, it's still right up my alley.

I give you Revlon Va Va Violet from Purple Passion collection.

I will be posting some Revlon lip color swatches soon to let yall see some Revlon lipstick colors I have bought on BOGO's and I so loving Revlon lipsticks. As anyone tried their new Colorburst Collection yet?

Be fabulous!

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday/ Kwanzaa/Hanukkah etc etc...Just a terrific Happy Holidays. What did you all do?
Is there anyone super excited about 2010?

LOTD: L'oreal HIP is my MAC


I know from the heading your like "what" but hey I love MAC and L'oreal HIP has been a favprite drugstore brand of mine and I love it. The HIP duos have so mush possible dupes to MAC and I love almost all the HIP duos that have been released (minus those matte colors which were released lately). Not only do I love the duos but their lip stuck shine, cream liners, crayons and blush as well as foundation are great.

Here's a look of the day which I did using a few of their products.

Always use a primer (UD/TFSI) because if you have oily lids like me it will crease

Revlon Colorstay Mahogany (not my normal RCS color: a little darker)
Ben Nye Neutral Set powder
Wet N Wild bronzer: Bali
L'Oreal HIP cream blush: Tickled
L'Oreal HIP e/s duo: Adventurous (orange as blush and light color as highlight)
L'Oreal HIP e/s duo: Brazen (dark brwon for contour)

NYX tan concealer (base)
L'Oreal HIP Crayon: Authentic (second base)
L'Oreal HIP e/s duo: Riotous (bright green on lid & dark green on outer 'v' and crease & bottom lid)
42 Double stack matte palette: tan color (blend crease and highlight color together)
L'Oreal HIP Adventurous (light color for highlight)
L'Oreal HIP cream liner: Teal

NYX Louisiana l/s
NYX Pinky Natural l/g

If you haven't tried the L'Oreal HIP products don't be afraid to give them a try, because that are all super duper pigmented and you can always get them at great deals when your drugstores as BOGO's.

Be fabulous!

Review: Generic 15 Concealer Palette

Hello everyone,

Note: picture heavy
Pictures are click-able and give details

I had a request by Vixxan from The Glam Shack blogspot to do a review on the 15 Generic Concealer palette.

I purchased this palette a while back and now I can give my full review after using it for some time now.


15 Concealer Palette
Where to buy: Ebay and other website that sell these generic palettes. Don't think Coastal Scents have it.

What it consist of: 11 cream concealer ranging from light tone to dark tone, also three (3) correctors and one (1) highlighter.

Correctors colors:

-Yellow ~for under eye circle (neutralizes deep red & purple)
-Lavender ~correct shallowness
-Green ~neutralizes redness (pimples)
-Orange/ Salmon ~ for dark circle (blue color)

  • Gives a natural look when applied before any foundation application
  • great consistency
  • no smell
  • when applied it is a cream which turns to powder texture
  • there are various shades available to various skin tone
  • price for the 15 color palette is reasonable and cheap compared to other brand
  • very convenient for travel
  • Great eyeshadow base too. Eyeshadow lasted over 7+ hours without creasing

  • Have to set it with a powder
  • As a eyeshadow base it doesn't make the eyeshadow(s) appear vibrant
  • Not deemed a full coverage concealer especially if you have extreme dark acne scars to cover

Here are pictures to compare it to MAC Studio Finish concealer.
(Note: Concealer used from palette is 2nd row from L-R, last column and then compared to MAC NW45)

Hello beauties,

I hope you all have taken advantage of Sephora's VIB email that almost every Sephora Beauty Insider has gotten with some being $15 off or $20 off. I got my 415 off and of course I got one goodie that turn out to be 5 items.
Ok so here goes: I ordered a Clinique Moisturizing Lotion and I'm eligible to choose 3 free samples (yayyy!!) and after putting in my email VIB Gift card code of $15 off and then in the promo section I put a code: "JCPCHOOSE" and from their I choose a terrific free item [Smashbox Primer]. Walllllaaaa!!!!!!.... Can yall guess what was the total of my order?
Have you all guessed????

Well it's $4.33.... yes that's the total charge after shipping and tax and all the codes and promos. So 5 items for $4.33 is like getting each for less than a $1.

So if you haven't taken advantage of your Sephora VIB, take advantage now because the $15/$20 off email gift card ends tonight/today: Dec 14.

Be fabulous!!

Disclaimer: I am in no way getting paid to do this or advertise for the company, nor am I affiliated with them.

Generic 26 Eyeshadow blush palette


Here are swatches of the Generic 26 eyeshadow, blush palette from Ebay. Swatched on NW45/ NC 45 skin tone.

Eyeshadows swatches

All swatches are swatched without any base/primer

1st row of eyeshadows (no base)

2nd & 3rd row of eye-shadows (no base)


As you can all see, without swatches the eye-shadows are very pigmented. They are absolutely soft in texture and very blendable. So far I have only done one look using them to test it out and it came out great. Stay tuned for future review of this product .

But you can see some glamorous looks: Check out the lovely ABrilliantBrunnette (*my favorite makeup guru ) makeup looks using this palette:
