LA Girl Matte Pigment Lip Gloss- Dupe for Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss?



Hi there!

While Anastasia's website is mysteriously on the fritz (you click and go to an error message if you want to test it out) I was looking for an option to find an affordable matte lip paint.  You want a Velvetine from Lime Crime too?  To satisfy that itch for a matte lipstick that applies wet I found a new love in La Girl Matte Pigment Lip Glosses.  For $5 each (yes, for realio) you can get LA Girl's Matte Pigment Lip Glosses at a fraction of the cost of similar products.

Maybe Rebel is a dupe for Lime Crime's Riot Velvetine?  Wouldn't that be nice?!

New Collections from Aromaleigh- Galactic Eyeshadow!



Hi there!

So yeah, I've not posted in eons.  BUT I have been working, working like a busy bee to finish school and be smart and swift at work.  Both are keeping me humming along and leave little time for blogging.

BUT I wanted to share a new collection from Aromaleigh.  I love Aromaleigh.  I always have.  They make beautiful glimmering products with such quality, intelligence, and thought.

Here is Galactic- a lovely new collection of 10 eyeshadow shades inspired by the cosmos.

Comparisons and Dupe of Lime Crime Salem Velvetine: Brown Lipsticks and Liners

I love brown!  And yes, chocolate!

Hi there!

Okay so brown lipstick- specifically Lime Crime Makeup Lip Stain in Wicked.  I've wanted it for.ever.  It's this gorgeous brown that constantly pops up on Lime Crime's Instagram and taunts me.  It's not just 'brown' it's like milk chocolate but with a slight warm undertone that keeps it from looking like you raided your stash of Hershey's.  It's just gorgeous.  Here are some of the pics I'm talking about:

Hello there!

Busy busy bee around here.  I'll be on hiatus for a while until I get some blogging time.  I'm super duper excited that I am now working as a nurse and in the best unit I could ever hope for.  It's the hugest dream come true but also the most frightening/exciting thing I've done.  I want to give 110%. Soooo you might not see/hear much from me but it's all dream building around here.  However, when I get time, here's what I want to share:

Vice 3 (a bit more)
OCC Lip Tars and Polish
Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette
Starlooks/Wantable/Ipsy/Lip Monthly boxes from like you know, the entirety of 2014
J Lynne Foundations (dreamy stuff)
Aromaleigh collections (gorgeous, gorgeous!)
MAC Lip Trios
...etc and yonder and non...

Anyway, lots going on and I'll get to it, but there is a time and season and right now my season is my work.


Have a great day,
T

My Ode to School:

Homework, homework every day.
I get no sleep. I get no pay.
Heaven help me as I curse.
It ain't easy to become a nurse.
I try and try to get good grades.
As blub and wrinkles amass in spades.
One day soon I know it will end.
And maybe I'll be skinny with a BSN.
Then off to grad school I will go.
3 more years of rows to hoe.
And once I'm old and finally free.
I'll maybe have my NNP.
If that's the case the war is won.
And DANG IT ALL I will BE DONE!


Have a great day,
T
