Because iLove It: Angelina Jolie at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards

I used to have a love affair with Angelina Jolie. I thought she was beautiful, sexy and fascinating. Well...that's kind of over. But, once in awhile she reminds me why I used to love her. I thought she looked beautiful at The Gold Globes a couple of weeks ago. The hair, the dress and the makeup were clean and simple but bold at the same time. A lot of people don't agree with matching makeup to clothing but I like it when it's done well - and here I think that it was. The red lip complements the red handbag as well as the red accent on the dress. I browsed a couple of sites to find good pics. Thanks and credit to Just Jared and Angelina Jolie Place.

REVIEW: LORAC Close Up: Real Life to Red Carpet Eye Tutorial

I've wanted to share this with you guys FOREVER! Ok, here's the story: the very first LORAC product I purchased was a matte brown eyeshadow from a department store about 10 years ago. The pigmentation and texture were okay but nothing mind blowing. I used it on occasion but it wasn't a favorite so after some time I tossed it. Well, as things go my indifference toward the product generated an indifference toward the brand and I never made another purchase. Fast forward a few years and I became curious about the brand again. Then I saw this kit. What sold it for me was the value. You get four (4) FULL SIZE products and a double-ended brush for $36. The price of a single LORAC eyeshadow trio, similar to the one included in this set, is $26. You can purchase the kit at Ulta and Sephora locations as well as Ulta.com and Sephora.com. I highly recommend it and it's a great way to try several products from the line for the first time. Now, I'm going to go through the different elements in the kit and give you my opinions.

Swatched: LA Splash Mineral Eyeshadow & Diamond Dust

Awhile back I did a video reviewing LA Splash Diamond Dust. Recently I got a comment on that video from MAKEUPNAILSQUEEN asking for swatches. I was going through all the pics on my drive and realized that I do indeed have swatches that were never posted. So, here you go. I hope this is helpful for you. Just an FYI, Ulta has most LA Splash cosmetics Buy One, Get One 50% until January 21, 2012. It's a good time to try them out or to stock up on some you've had your eye on.

My life and love of beauty in pictures.

I have been suuuuuuch a lazy blogger. I know a lot of you have been there. There is so much that goes into my posts. So many pics. So many edits. So much prep. I just get tired thinking about it sometimes. And therefore nothing gets posted. But, the thing is that I have a lot I want to share with you guys. So, that's one of the reasons why I provided the links above. I am always tweeting, retweeting, reblogging, posting and pic-ing somewhere.  

So, because I have been gone so long I have a couple posts that I want to share with you and heeeeeere we go!

Halloween 2011

I can't believe I didn't post this! I did two Halloween makeup tutorials on my YouTube page. One I called Bubblegum Disco and the other was my take on Catwoman. I LOVED the Bubblegum disco look but the wig just ruined it. Next time I need to spend a little more and get a GOOD afro wig. Oh well.
