My Look: Mirror, Mirror...

I am not good at "mirror selfies". I am very new to the whole taking a picture of myself in the mirror thing. So bear with me on that. I'd love to do more outfit of the day type posts (you know, on the rare days I get dressed lol), so I will be practicing. Here is what we have so far.

This particular day was about a week ago, and I was headed out for another birthday bash (a birthday is an event you know) I will post whatever info I have below pics.

Phone case - Big Lots
Hair - Revlon Deep Waver

Jeans - American Eagle
Striped Top - Plato's Closet (not sure it's origin)
Vest - ?? Kohl's possibly. It has a skinny racer back, and it's long and drapey. 
It was a hand - me - down. 
Necklace - Rhinestone high heel. Forever21

Eyes - Lorac Unzipped palette
Cheeks - Tarte Exposed blush
Lips - Nothing. I eventually wore Jordana's Cranberry Crush

My Look: Casual Mommy Monday

     I have a love/hate relationship with long weekends. It's nice having hubby and kids here, but it takes me hours and hours on the following Monday to put my house back in order. Needless to say, it was a sweats and simple makeup kind of day.

Some of today's products: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, Essence single in Party All Night, Wet n Wild MegaLiner, NYC Color Wheel blush in Rose Glow, Hard Candy Tiki highlight, Milani Brow Fix kit.

My Über sophisticated and high couture outfit of the day, complete with intricate updo (lololol!)

So what are you all doing on this Monday? Recovering from the weekend as well?

Have a lovely day beauties!

Sigma Wish List & Coupon Codes!

Big news for anyone interested in trying, or those of you whom already love their brushes (as I do!)

This Friday (Black Friday, November 29th), Sigma products will include FREE SHIPPING!! This is big because Sigma NEVER has free shipping, ever.

Also on Cyber Monday, select products will be 20% off!! This is also exciting as Sigma generally only offers 10% off with the coupon code for that particular month. Here is a visual if you want more info:

     So here is my wish list, and I hope you get a few good ideas if you are looking to try anything from this brand.

This is one of the new brush kits recently launched in the line.

This is also one of 3 new brush kits recently introduced to the line.

These brushes have synthetic bristles, and are great for applying foundation and concealer. 

If you are not into brushes, and are more interested in makeup products, I've got you covered too! :-)

This kit includes 3 of the eyeshadows bases, and also a mini eyeshadow base brush. The shades included are: Provoke (matte cream beige), Pursue (eggplant purple) and Spy (blue/green/red brown duo chrome).

$49 (it's already on sale!)
This palette includes 2 brushes: one for eyes, one for cheeks. It also includes 8 beautiful eyeshadows inspired by Paris, 2 blushes and a highlighter.

$12 (LE, will be gone soon!)
This is a beautiful soft pink blush, and is highly pigmented.

Individual Eyeshadows
My picks: Topaz (matte burnt orange), Fawn (frosted mushroom), Luna (pearl gold duochrome), Grasp (frosted peach) and Moonbeam (frosted iridescent periwinkle).

Swatches & Photos: Too Faced - A Few of my Favorite Things

This kit is exclusive to Sephora, and is Limited Edition, so get it while you can! I highly recommend it!
This kit retails for $56.00 USD.
Included is:
Pink & gold chevron clutch
Lip Injection Color Bomb in Bee Sting
Better Than Sex deluxe sample size mascara
20 eyeshadows
2 bronzers
2 blushes
small "look book"

All swatches are finger swatches on bare skin

Snowflakes / Whiskers on Kittens / Chocolate Milk / Moon on Their Wings / Dark Chocolate

Cream Colored Ponies / Honey Honey / Buche de Noel / Evergreen / Blue Satin Sashes

Coquet / Taffy / Crisp Apple Strudel / Woolen Mittens / Soiree

Tinsel / Bluff / Ooh La Orchid / Party Time / Pure Glam

All the shades are very pigmented, and are wonderfully pigmented. The only shades with a little trouble are the matte purple "Ooh La Orchid" and the shimmery "Party Time". "Ooh La Orchid" just needs a little help when applied, just build it up. "Party Time" is not the spectacular shade it appears in the pan, more like an overshadow actually. I'd use it over top of another shadow to give it a little "pop!".

Chocolate Soleil / Melt into Spring / Raindrops on Roses / Sun Bunny

No complaints in the face products department! All winners in my book, and I'm especially fond of the peachy coral shade - Melt into Spring.

The "Better Than Sex" mascara is just ok for me. It reminds me of Almay Get Up & Grow, as far as the brush. It's nothing special, but it's not bad either. 

First of all, I'm sorry I have to say this, but this lip stick looks like a penis. I'm sorry that's disgusting, but it does. It's quite off-putting. The color is beautiful, ou know I'm partial to natural nude shades. However, I'd wear this over a lip balm, so as to have a "buffer". The name of this shade is "Bee Sting" and I find that perfect, because that's what it feels like. It hurts SO bad on the lips!

All together, I am more than pleased with this purchase. You like? 

I give this an:

My Birthday Look & Birthday Haul :)

    For my makeup look, I did a black and warm brown smokey using my Anastasia Lavish Palette. Lips are Jordana Balm Stain in Cranberry Crush.

My birthday was on the 14th, and to celebrate I did dinner at Chili's with my husband, mom, stepdad and sister. Fun times :)

A few goodies I picked up at Ulta with birthday money:
Essence Beauty Beats Shimmer Powder in Swag!
NYX Pore Filler (video soon!)

I also picked up the Vice 2 palette with a birthday gift card, which I blogged about here.

Lastly, I also picked up the A Few of my favorite Things kit by Too Faced. So so so pretty! Swatch post to follow!

Later beauties!!
