Coastal Scents Friday Sale

....and yet another sale that I can't partake in! C'mon Easter! Get here already!! LOL!

Coastal Scents ( is having a 20% off sale on their Creative Me #1 Palette. I believe the sale is only good for today, March 12, 2010.

The palette comes with a mirror and the colors are interchangeable with other "Hot Pots" that are sold by Coastal Scents
I personally have not tried this palette or any of the "Hot Pots" , but I have heard many great things about them. They are affordable, very pigmented and of course, many of the colors are dupes for MAC eyeshadows.

I recently swapped with someone on MUA for 7 "Hot Pots" and I am really excited about getting them and testing them out. I should have them any day now. If I like them, which I am sure I will, I will be ordering some from Coastal Scents.

I've ordered many things from Coastal Scents and have always been happy with my purchases and the customer service. Their shipping could be a little lower, but other than that, I have no complaints.

Until next time...

Great Sale at Cherry Culture is having a great sale right now - 20% OFF on all orders from March 10th-March 15th. The code is MMM2010.

I love Cherry Culture. They sell several makeup brands, including NYX which is a really popular inexpensive brand. Check it out if you can!

I can live vicariously through those who shop! LOL! I gave up shopping for makeup for Lent, and I've stuck with it! Happy Shopping Ladies!

Makeup Looks

I thought I would share some of my looks with you guys. I don't remember what products I used, but going forward, any FOTD's I post will include a list of everything I use in case any one is interested. Enjoy!!!

This was an entry to my first makeup contest back in 2008. I was recreating a Jennifer Lopez look. I wish I could find the pic now.

This is just an everyday look for me. I love to wear browns, golds, bronzes, etc.

I think this was the first time I ever really "played" with a lot of color. This is a rainbow look I created for a contest in early 2009.

This is one of my FAVE looks. I love the lashes I used...I was pretty sure that I could fly with them on. HA!!!

I was just playing with makeup one day and created this. I can't draw to save my life, but I think this turned out okay.

I saw MakeupbyRenRen do this look and I loved it so much I had to recreate it! I used those crazy lashes again!! They are so dramatic!

Red and Black Challenge. I was too lazy and did only one eye! HA

Oh, those Winter Blues!!! Please excuse the yucky zit I have on my lip! EWWW!!

This was my "Going to see NKOTB" look. I went to see them in October 2008 and that was the first time I saw them since I was 13 years old. Love those guys!!

My New Eye Makeup Remover

Lately I've been reading about the benefits of using Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) for skincare. It contains Vitamins A & E; it protects the skin; it's very gently to the skin; does not contain harsh chemicals, etc.

About two weeks ago, I gave it a shot as an eye makeup remover since I was out of my usual stuff. I have to tell you that I freakin love this stuff!! I pour just a little bit of oil onto a cotton ball; rub it on my lids and it removes ALL of my eye makeup!!! WOO HOO!!!

Ladies, save your money on those expensive eye makeup removers! I highly recommend using olive oil...if it gets along with your skin. I've had no issues using the Olive Oil, but I know that everyone's skin type is diferent, so use your best judgment!
