Dupe Alert!

Hello lovelies,

It's here again, another high-end -----low-end dupe alert. This dupe is exactly, if not twins to each other. I have been eyeing and wanting MAC Shadowy Lady, I purchased it from BeFlurt.com recently and now I have it in my collection. It occurred to me that I have a color which looks so similar, now it as been stated that a specific HIP duo is a dupe but I tried that HIP duo color and it wasn't even nothing near to it. Well my makeup junkies, Wet N Wild has their new eyeshadows palettes with 6 colors: three matte and three shimmer. The Wet N Wild Lust palette contains a exact duplication of the MAC Shadowy Lady.
Here are some pictures and swatches for verification.

L-R: MAC Shadowy Lady & WnW Lust eyeshadow

L-R: WnW Lust eyeshadow & MAC Shadowy Lady

Eyeshadow: 3rd row & 1st column

L-R: MAC Shadowy Lady ($14.50 US) & WnW Lust eyeshadow ($4.99 US)

Btw if you look at the palette, you may see a couple more dupes to some highend, well I will be doing my research and keep you up to date, but hey I would definitely get some of these Wet N Wild palettes.

Be fabulous!!

Hello lovelies,

I have another bold lip color for you. I am hooked to MAC lipsticks now can you tell. I ordered this color from MAC for a while now when it was on the regular MAC website. It is actually a Pro color and it was out of stock for some time now. I think it's a hot, bold and demanding color. It's the lovely lady Violetta. Let just say It wasn't what I expected but I really like it. Violetta is a amplified cream and from the MAC website it's described as bright clean violet purple. It's bright indeed and definitely violet purple looking. Definitely wearable for a night on the town or hanging with the girls (club night). Don't be afraid of it bold look because I know that it can be mixed with other to create pure awesome and I will be sharing some of that on next posts.

As you know me I love a dupe, I tried all the purple lipstick I have to compare to this and one alone pop out to be pretty close. If you have the 66 generic lip palette the purple color in the palette (the end color) is very similar to it. I did a previous post (Click here) with a purple lipstick color mixture using 66 palette purple color and this is very similar to it. If you have the 66 lip color palette, don't be mad if you don't have MAC Violetta l/s because it definitely duped in that palette.

Here are swatches

Eye of a Tiger

Hello lovelies,

I haven't used my ELF Eye Encyclopedia in a while now, so I grabbed for it today and came up with this smokey Tiger eye look. I wasn't going for a tiger eye look but after I completed it I was like "this looks so much like a tiger eye"!!

Btw, if you want to purchse ELF products minus the high price shipping fees, check your local Target s they are now carrying ELF products both original and studio line.

The Eye Encyclopedia was basically a release from last year Holiday introduction of ELF in Target. But I know they are alternative in the ELF original eyeshadows to create this look or maybe their are colors in your stash to alternate.

Revlon Colorstay: Cappuccino
Black Radiance powder: Mahogany

How I do my brows

**Picture heavy

Hello lovelies,

A lot of you have been complementing me on my eyebrows and I am very thankful, I try my best even though every time I do them I always think they aren't perfect. I have learnt so much from Youtube about doing my brows from the infamous ABrillantBrunette, LilPumpkinpie05 and Rjmakeup. In my opinion I believe brows make up atleast 60% of your makeup look. You could have a fierce eye makeup going on but the brows bring out more dramatic look in the makeup look. If my brows aren't looking great I always think nothing of my eye makeup. So here is a step by step process of how my brows are done.

1. Use a spoolie or your makeup brow comb brush and groom the brows.

2. I use a eye maker to draw the outline of the shape of my brows. I don't start from exactly where my brow hairs start, I actually start drawing from a little from the inner half. The eye marker I use is Jordana Fabuliner: brown ($1.99 @ Walgreens) or L'Oreal HIP cream liner: brown. You can use whatever you desire. If you choose to use a powder/ eyeshadow that is the closest color to your brows, use it along with a angled liner brush.

3. Then I fill in the outline with my HIP cream liner or any color powder that matches my eyebrows.

4. Using my spoolie, I then brush out the filled in area slightly, without placing so much pressure on the hairs, making sure to create a light to dark dimension from the beginning to the inner brow hairs.

5. Taking my concealer, I then define my brows both upper and lower. Concealing hides any hairs or define the brows angle. (Note that if you do this after foundation technique, to blend the concealer into the foundation so has to not have your brows looking ridiculous)

6. Apply brow gel, clear mascara or brow wax to set the brows so that the hairs don't move around and you lose the color on the brows.


I am sorry if this isn't detailed enough or very helpful to yall but I hope you have an understanding of some parts that maybe of benefit to you. I have listed the people above that I have learn so much from about brows, so you can definitely check them out (All the names listed are links click able to their site).

Be fabulous!!

I am currently using WnW cream liner in black, it's my staple now, but PF is getting my love. This PF cream liner for green eyes comes with 3 stack able cream liners in a green color, purple color and black color. All colors contain some shimmers in them but are not excessive.

Mini Haul - Discount MAC !!!

Hello lovelies,

I had to share this with yall, I wanted to share from the beginning that I saw this post and purchased the items but this was my first time purchasing from this website and wasn't sure if it was legit or true to it's word. However, I have gotten my items that I've purchased and I absolutely recommend this website for all you makeup lovers.

I recently saw Leinababy from Youtube post on her Twitter about this company that sells discount MAC cosmetics which is called BeFlurt.com. I was too excited so I hurried up and googled it and saw that they had MAC cosmetics on sale at terrific discount prices. Now I know that a lot of people saw these discounts and being the YT guru is famous, I know for the prices the items would go pretty fast. Well I went ahead and took the risk and ordered. I ordered another Girl About Town l/s, Full Fuchsia l/s and Shadowy Lady e/s. I received it today and being that the order was made Wednesday of last week. I still think it's very fast shipping. Well lovelies, everything is legit and authentic MAC products..... yes yes yes.....Now if your looking for discounted MAC items please visit BeFlurt.com now, I urge you to go now because they are having a terrific discount sale. I purchased my lipsticks at $9.99/ea. and eyeshadow at $12.50 I believe. They have MAC pigments and lipgloss also.

L-R: MAC Girl About Town l/s, Full Fuchsia l/s & Shadowy Lady e/s

MAC Full Fuchsia l/s

I know both Girl About Town and Full Fuchsia looks similar. I think they are, they are both Amplified cream texture but as always each will have a slight difference. Full Fuchsia (PRO) is more red pink and Girl About Town has a blue undertone. On my lips they both look similar, so as you can see I'm loving this lipstick color. I sure will be wearing this color out a lot.

I love me some OLD GOLD

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone weekend is going well. I recently ordered some sample MAC pigments from a seller online, yes they are authentic because I made it my duty to do my research on the seller and up on getting the products also.

With my order I purchased other colors to try and I have to say MAC you gonna have me broke, I want them all but I wish I had the funds to even purchase one MAC pigment color.
