Hi lovelies,

I recently saw a post by the lovely NouveauCheap about these mini kits containing L.A. Colors goodies. I went to my local $1 store which is called DEALS but a sister store to Dollar Tree to see if they had received these little goodies in stock. Of course they had them and I had to pick up a few. These mini kits are all $1 each and each kit comes with various items: some eyeshadow palettes with a mini eyeliner or nail polish with glitter jar or lipstick with mini lipliner and lipgloss and others beauty items.

Here are pictures of what I purchased and swatches as follow

Mini value kits

Ocean Breeze eyeshadow kit

Swatches not in particular order and no primer or base used

Berry Smootie lip kit: lipstick, mini lipliner and lipgloss

Sugar Coated lip kit: lipstick, mini lipliner & lipgloss

 The lipsticks are very creamy and have a cotton candy fragrance to them. I actually like the lipsticks and for a buck I didn't expect any high-end quality from them, not saying they are comparable to high-end lipsticks. However they are worth a try and great mini gifts for beginners. Check out your local Dollar Tree or DEALS store for these cute goodies.

*All items were purchase by me and i am in no way affiliated with any of the companies/ individuals mentioned

FOTD: GIOVI palette re-visited

Picture heavy!

Hello lovelies,

I hope everyone is doing well. My FOTD for today features me using the Giovi eyeshadow palette I had purchase couple years ago at Ross. I haven't played in this palette for so long. There are some pretty nice earth-tone colors in this palette. Few of the shadows are chalky IMO, but the shimmer earth-tone colors can create a beautiful look with a good base or primer applied.

FOTD: Addicted to Red lips

Hello lovelies,

I hope each and everyone of you beauties are doing well. I apologize for the delay in post.... the queen bee gotta take care of her hive...LOL!

The FOTD are looks that I may have done before and decided to re-create. I have just been recreating looks since I don't want to go overboard on bright colors for any work makeup. However can you point out the main love for me: red lips. I am truly addicted to red lips, it's a lip color which is so versatile that their is no season in which you can and cannot wear this.

Here are the photos and sorry but I truly don't recall the products used.


Don't you just love that lip color... oh so gorgeous!



Here we have matte red lips

If you have any questions, please free feel to ask and I will do my best to respond. Thanks beauties for your support and love. 

Be fabulous and be smart!
