Quick Review: MAC Underdressed Lipglass

Hey there! This post is gonna be short and sweet, I just wanted to show you my new baby: MAC Undressed Lipglass. It came out with MAC's big summer collection Temperature Rising, which hit stores Thursday. I also really wanted the Feel My Pulse lipstick, but I'm too broke. :,( But this lipgloss is truly stunning, so I don't feel too bad!

So this is the Lipglass in question. MAC describes as a bronzed plum with multi dimensional pearl. I'd called bronzed neutral with holographic gold and bright purple shimmer. It's very shiny and high gloss. It's less sticky than the normal formula, which I'm a fan of. This was really hard to photograph, so I didn't include a picture of it on. I promise the swatch is pretty accurate. Also let's just stop and admire how pretty the bronze summer packaging is. =)
$16.50 at MAC stores and counters. (Sold out online!)

DIY Banana Oatmeal Mask

Hey there you guys! Today I'm going to show you how to make this very easy face mask, out of stuff you probably have in your anyway. p.s I haven't done a post like this before, show let me know in the comments if you like it! :D

So first you have to gather your ingredients. You'll need: 1 over ripe banana, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/2 plain oatmeal, 1 tbs honey. It's pretty easy, you mash the banana, then mix everything else in. The texture will be chunky, so be patient as you apply it to your face. Leave it on for fifteen minutes or so. You'll look silly, like this:

This mask is great for your skin for a number of reasons. The banana is cleansing and nourishing. The lemon is a astringent and brightens. The honey is anti-bacterial, so its great for ance. And the oatmeal soothes and softens. As well as being one of nature's most gentle exfoliants.

So do you guys want more DIY posts like this, let me know in the comments!

Review: Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette + 2 Looks!

So today I popped down to CVS and got something I've been wanting for quite awhile, Wet n Wild's 8 pan Comfort Zone Palette. I'm a huge fan of Wet n Wild's eyeshadows and this is no exception! At $4.99 USD this is such a steal, and is really well rounded. Let's take a look, shall we?


On the left half of the palette are four neutrals. The first shade is a warm white gold with a slightly frosty finish (Not in a bad way!). Next we have a medium peachy pink with a gold sheen, this one has almost metallic finish. The third shade or the 'crease' color is a medium warm brown with a bit of a bronze sheen, also satin. And finally a dark red brown with fine burgundy glitter. All of these are very soft and easy to work with; the second shade is my favorite it's very smooth and pigmented.

The other half has some nice shimmery shades, and a pretty pretty duochrome. The first shade is a metallic silver taupe, not nearly as green as it looks here. The eyelid shade is very green though! Its a bright olive with golden shimmer, another satin. The next shade is a blackened green with multi-colored  fine glitter. Finally possibly the most interesting shade in the palette, a beautiful red-purple/ turquoise duochrome. I'm not very good with duochromes, they never seem to look right on me... but this one is stunning! 

Now I did two looks with this palette, pretty much as directed. The only things I changed were I used the top left shade in my inner corners for both looks. Also I mixed the some in with the top right shade for my brow bone for the second look, the taupe is just too dark to look good a highlight on me. (Still pretty though!) 

So what do you think, five bucks worth of fun? I'll say. I already knew how great WnW's eyeshadows were, and I was still impressed! 5/5 for this one!
 What do you guys think?

My Glam May 13

Hey everyone! I must say this month's bag was fantastic! They've started personalizing them a bit more, and I must say I'm liking it!

So first we have a lipgloss from Juice Beauty. I got the color Champagne, a sheer pearly shade. It's very smooth, I really like the way this lip gloss feels. Also this lipgloss is organic, which is always nice. Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss retails for $15 USD.

Next we have a perfume roller ball from Pacifica. I got the island vanilla scent. The vial is glass and the roller seems pretty sturdy. This perfume lasts a very long time on the skin, without being overpowering. Downside, I'm not a huge fan of this scent. It's a little one dimensional for me. But good product overall. This retails for $12 USD. (Side note, this product is vegan)

Then is Zoya nail polish in Neely, a whitened mint creme shade. I love it so much! This is possibly my favorite item this month. This polish is creamy, opaque in two coats, and a great neutral for spring and summer. Big fan. Retails for $8 USD

After that is Mirabella Color Sheen lipstick. I got the color Posy, a bright sheer raspberry. I really like this. It comes in a lipstick bullet, looks like a stain, but feels very smooth like a balm. I always love a good tinted lip balm and this is no exception. Color Sheens Retail for $22 (!!!) USD.

And finally we have Yaby Concealer, in pan form. I must admit I haven't fully tested this one, because it 's really not my color. I got in the shade Honey, which is a medium color with a very strong yellow undertone.\

My Glam is $10 a month at

April Favorites

Ugh I feel so lazy, I really need to be more on top of my posting. To my defense I was super busy this month, I'm not use to having a life. But that's no excuse enough whining, on to the favorites!

So my fragrance favorite this month is Victoria's Secret Angel Gold. This was sort of a surprise favorite of mine, I don't tend to like Victoria's Secret perfumes much. I don't hate them, they just aren't my style. But this perfume is so lovely! Its a great spring scent. It has a light but noticeable sillage; you can smell it if you're close enough to hug but not overwhelming even when its first applied. It has soft floral and bright citrus notes, overall it's a very happy fragrance. This is a travel sized bottle, which is considerably cheaper (I think VS body sprays are crazy over priced). I'm not a big fan of the bottle design though.

Second favorite is Popcorn Scrub from Lush. This sweet and salty little piece of magic came out around Christmas as a seasonal item, but lush recently brought it back! I'm very happy about this because I never got around to getting it the first time around. Its a tasty treat gently scrubs your lips for baby smooth lips, great for perfect lipstick application. Especially those stupid matte shades that show every flaw!

Next is Sebastian Shaper Fierce Ultra-Firm Finishing Hairspray. That's a bit of a mouthful! Seriously though, this stuff is fantastic. Great hold, not too crunchy and my favorite part... I love the smell! I hate the traditional 'hairspray smell' and my current favorite strong hold hair spray Kenra 25 (Which is great!) is a bit better it smells like tuberose and gardenia. Better than the old fashioned poison gas smell, but I strongly dislike tuberose and the scent lingers quite a bit. This smells great! Sort of woody and warm, I love it. If it were a perfume I'd wear it all the time.

Next up is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish in Quick Sand. This is a really pretty neutral polish color, it has a great balance of pink and brown tones along with a subtle silver shimmer. Covers completely in two coats, with no streaks. Nuff' said.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock. This continues to be my skins lord and master and the sun gets stronger. Second month on this list, big big fan.

Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush in Spicy & Sweet. I keep coming back to this blush because it's such a stunner. Inside its adorable little box it has four colors (a bright coral, a pinky brown, a bright warm pink, and a dusty rose) that swirl together to make a beautiful dusty coral coral that warms up the face and gives a great natural flush for summer. It has a satin finish and blends very nicely, also I think I should mention that its very pigmented for a drugstore blush.

Finally my savior from sad winter legs, Jergens Natural Glow for Light to Medium Skin Tones. I don't know what I'd do without this, especially the last couple weeks. Also I think it should be noted, they fixed the smell!! It no longer smells like a gross molasses floral mess. (Bleh.) It now has a very unoffensive fresh scent.

My non beauty favorites for the month? Well there's this drink called Coco Cafe that's espresso, coconut water, and lowfat milk that I've been loving. No joke, can't stop drinking it. And I've been obsessed with Netflix's new series Hemlock Grove. Sooo good, so weird. What are your favorites lately? Tell me in the comments, I'd love to know! =)
