Elf Cosmetics, YES to Tomatoes, Youtube and Other Stuff

I am BACK!!!
I have been very neglectful of my little blog! I am very sorry excuses I know are thin but work has been insane and I am so tired I forget when I get home, or I get caught up watching my favorite youtube videots fall asleep!!!! But anyways.....

So I got a few new things to tell u all about. I discovered the line YES to Tomatoes (same as the Yes to Carrots but with the tomatoes ha ha) and it's for combo to oily skin which I have and it's paraben fee and 97.8% natural so I had to give it a try....well I love it!!! I started out with the face wash and the face mask like 2 weeks or so ago and have really been loving the results so tonight while at Walgreens (to get my niece who is turning 1 tomorrow a hair brush cause she like to carry hair brushes around...werid right?) I saw that the line was buy one get one 50% off so I got the toner pads and the facial lotion. I used both tonight and again I think I am loving it! So any one with that kind of skin I would highly recommend trying out the line if you are looking for a nice moderately priced (7.99-14.99) drugstore brand skin care routine!  I saw them at Walgreens and Target so far.

Also on the Beauty front I recently made a purchase (my first) from ELF Cosmetics. I was really excited to try some brushes from there as I had heard from my fellow youtubbers that their very inexpensive itmes (starting at 1.00!!!) were really good! So I placed and order and since I decided to spend 20.00 I got 40 free eye colors (that was 10 eye quads) and I got to choose which ones I wanted!!!! Now I really honestly didn't need any more eye colors but my niece really enjoys make up, I mean she is only 7 but she will sit at my make up area for ever and just put on a full face (really well I might add) of make up so I was planning to give her the quads. I did she was over joyed! I ordered one dup that was a really pretty color combo of neutrals called "etheral" that I kept but the other 9 packs went to the overjoyed 7 year old!!!! She cannot wait to try them out! I ordered her some really pretty ones! And I have to tell you I tried the oen I kept and the colors were really smooth and I liked the pay off! I used my Laura Mercier Wheat EyeBasic under it (which I also recieved today) and it looked good!!! Regurally they only retail for $1.00!!! So what a deal! Great for the make up bag in the purse or car that u dont want your good stuff in but you want something decent in! And the burshes are really nice I the face kabuki , the c  eyebrush, the face powder brush and the blush brush all from the studio line they were about 3.00 each! Very nice handles and very nice fluff to them!

Also I got 2 items from All Cosmetics Wholesale which is a really nice site to get some discounted and discountined items from the big name brands like MAC and Laura Mercier, and Dolce and Gabanna and Dior....I got the Wheat Eye Basics for $9.99 unboxed! It retails for $25! and I got MAC's Painterly Paint pot for 14.00 so that was a nice experience!!!!
Mac Cosmetics Paint Pot - Girl Friendly

I also got some really nice soaps that when I do the review on them on my youtube I will post the link on here from a place called Creamery Creek Farms they smell amazing and were recommened by a fellow you tubber and I just had to order some but the sweet owner sent me some others for free too I just am in heaven!!!!!! Check them out if you can!!!!!
til next time

Shopping Pictures, Images and Photos

So can I must confess to 3 things that I believe are not going to bode very well for me over the next Month:
1. I am a Shop-a-holic like it's seriously a sickness!!! ;)
2. I have been and always will be the biggest fan of all things Disney! When I go there I shopp my butt off and have to ship so much home! I love the atomsphere and the characters and the movies, I could go on and on and on. I even have planned to get married there someday if it all works out
3. MAC-I love MAC and now onto how all this flows together......


Ok this is like the most exciting thing I heard since the Hello Kitty collection, which btw I missed out on pretty much everything I wanted except a lipstick and gloss because by day 3 they were sold out around here!!! (but my Hello Kitty love is for another time!.....

I checked out Temptalia's Website and she was fortunate enough to be invited to the preeview in Disneyland and swatched and showed all the collections! Well....needless to say I already have a list of MUST haves/wishes and it looks like at least 200 bucks worth....dare I say more!!!

Now I know u are saying she is outta control! BUT I was thinking I have a month and like over 10 days til release, if I buy no new make up prodcuts (only like shampoo and contitioner or body wash if necessary) for the next month I prob will have justifed the purchase considering I prob spend about 100 a month on stuff like that!....Hello my last Ulta rewards certificate number was a 15 people!!!! They don't even go that high I had to conbine levels (it was great tho side note I got alot of cute stuff!!!) here are my wants in order of most to least from the collection (I want to hear form YOU!!!

NYX, MAC and the Naked Palette

So I finally got my hands on the Urband Decay Naked Palette! I am beyond thrilled with the look of the palette, the quality of the shadows (not too many messy chunky glitters like some of their stuff) It's stunning to look at and worth the Price of it! I was hesitant to pay $44.00 for a single make-up item, because while I love the high end stuff it just kills me to shell out almost $50 bucks and get one thing I would like to get many things as I am a typical make-up girl/junkie!!! But I have been using this for he last 4 days and I love it! My favs for high lights are Sin and Virgin and I am loving Smog, Buck and Naked the Most! It also comes with a dual ended  eyeliner in Zero (black) and Wiskey (brown)! Oh and you get a mini Primer Potion which does help the staying power of all shadows in general espically the UD ones. I prefer the Sin Primer Potion by UD but hey, it came with so I am not gonna complain and it's tiny good for travel!!!! The case is a beautiful matte chocolate brown velvet and the letters are done in gold! There is a small mirror as in all of their eye palettes. And the inside is as beautiful and chic as the outside with a satin taupe background and gold letters and it has a magnetic close! I recommend this highly to everyone!  If u wear the neutral look or you know someone just getting into make up or ahave a high school or younger girl to buy for this is the gift!!!! This is of course my own opinion!

I also got  few NYX items in the last couple weeks that I am soooo happy with! For a "drugstore" brand they are highly pigmented shadows, liners and lipsticks!!! The jumbo eyepencils which I linked here are a cult fav with the beauty gurus. I was intoduced to this line about 4 yrs ago at a dance convention in a stage make up class where I revied the MILK colored jumbo shadow and  a Godess of the Night gloss, since then I always wondered where to get it and not till I guess the last year did I realize Ulta had this line. Now Ulta doesn't carry everything and I was seeing alot of YouTube vids that had items I could not find such as the Bronzer and the Black Label stuff. So I found a site called Cherry Culture. ( where they sell most of the line and their prices are wicked awesome!!!! They do not just sell NYX but a lot fo other brands as well as the famous Red Cherry Fake Eyelashes alot of the gurus rave on! From there I got a 5 color eyeshadow palette from the Caribbean Collection in "I Dream of Barbados" and I got an Angled eyebrush, 3 of the Ultra Peal Mania Eye pigments (very compareable to MAC and their pigments only cost....wait for it...$1.50!!!!) and I got the NYX bronzer in "Daydream of Ohau" I am pleased and will shop here again!!!!

Onto MAC! I am a MAC girl I love the brand and I love the artists I have been able to work on me, I cannot say enough nice things about the place! I purchased some pigments recently off of ebay from a very nice seller. The colors I got were fun and I cannot wait to play with them. They were Fushsia 97, Typographic(a steely gray), Bronze 67, and Shimmer Moss (a bright fun teal!) I wish I could change my look like 4 times a day cause I wanna wear everyhing right away!!!

If U all have been shopping lately tell me what u got I love comments!

So I've done some Beauty Shopping Lately on Ebay and More!!!

I placed a few orders/bids on ebay as I mentioned before fora several items and I have a mixed bag of review on them.

First of all ebay and make up is a tricky thing! Alot of the MAC stuff is fake and u need to beware and some of the make up sellers!! I have delt with  one that,while they have high reviews they have been nasty to deal with! I ordered one MAC Cream Shadows palette, which i have a feeling was fake, from an Ebayer SHOPSMART2525, so beware on that! They did refund my paypal money but it took 13 days to get it back and they never sent me the product tho they claimed to have proof it was sent, they never furnished said proof, I think they never sent it and I think they just expected me to go away! So I got most of my momney back but they took out some fee which I did not appreciate and I will not ever do business again they also refused to give me my money back til I agreed to cancel the transaction on ebay and make it like it never happened therefore I cannot leave feedback! It was a mess!!!!!

Another thing is before when I use to ebay like 4 yrs ago when i paid for an item right away which I do via paypal I'd gegt my item fast cause the seller had their money, but the last 6 transactions I had the shipping took over 3 weeks! I don't find that good business! It's like I hadned u over my money right away and U get to keep it for 3 weeks and then give me my product!  No I don't like this and I think I am gonna go back to just looking for harder to find items on  Amazon Marketplace and if I can't find it Oh well not ment to be!!!

Share with me any experiences u guys have had negative or positive and if there are some great sellers out there please tell me I will buy again if they are recommened by u!

Congrats to Lauren Froderman the SYTYCD Season 7 Winner

Congrat Lauren!!!!
Last night was the final show for the summer (booooo! I love this show) and America's Favorite Dancer was crowned! Lauren Froderman the 18 year old from AZ was the ultimate winner! This girl is Phenomonal and if you have not seen her dance check out the Fox websiteSYTYCD LAUREN and view some of her most amazing moments! For me and my 7 year old niece,Sara, this girl had our vote from the beginning, I must admit tho we were pulling for Kent "the kid" from Wapakeneta too! A tie would have suited me fine but I know only one dancer can reign supreme! Lauren was the most consistantly great dancer each week AND the ONLY GIRL to survive the first 5 eliminations in which every other girl went home!!!!!

Some of my fav Lauren moments this season was:
Her dance with Kent as the Prom King and Queen to Collide
Her Hip Hop with Twitch to My Bad Chick
Her Damn Yankee's Routine with all Star Allison
And her audition Solo to Fever!

Lauren recived high praise from the judges week after week but the 2 best compliments I think I would take with me and remember as best if I was her are
Adam Shankman: "I am gonna say to you, the words every dancer wants to hear I WANNA HIRE U"
Mia Michaels "If I were still dancing I would want to dance like you"
