September GFC Give-Away - Dior Amber Diamond

Hi Dolls Its September Give-Away time!! I picked up Dior Ultra-Shimmering All Over Face Powder in Rose Diamond for me and decided to grab one in Amber Diamond for this months Give-away..Hope you like it:) Like in past month Give-away's all you need to do is follow my Blog with GFC and I will pick a winner through on Sept 20th.

* I took pictures when I opened it to make sure nothing was broken but plastic is still over powder and product hasn't been touched
I love this months Give-away (so much I may need to get the amber diamond for me) and hope you do too. Good Luck Beauties:)

Voluminous Power Collagen Mascara ( & Liner)

Hi Dolls I was out getting a few things done today including buying for September's Give-Away (which will be posted tonight!!) and I stopped in Shoppers to grab a new waterproof mascara since all of mine are hitting the throw out mark..I decided to try this one because I really like the other Voluminous Mascaras and it came with a bonus Liner:)

One Layer

 Two Layers

 With Liner

This is only my first impression of these products but I like them so far.

Voluminous Power Collagen WP Mascara in Blackest Black
I really thought it made my lashes look great and it gave me a choice of more natural to dramatic lashes. No Clumps:). I did find it difficult to get product on my outer corner lashes but that's more my lashes then the Mascara because I have this problem all the time no matter what I use.

Voluminous Eye Liner
Great colour pay off and sets quickly but I'm not sure about the shape of the tip. I found it impossible to do the point on my everyday winged liner look..but maybe I just need to experiment with it some more.

Watch out for tonight's Give-Away Post:)

My Fall Essentials (Shopping List)

Hey dolls Wanted to do a quick post showing my Fall Wish/Shopping List this year. Every thing you see below are staples in my wardrobe that I buy each year just changing the colours, patterns and material depending on what I like that year:)

 Leggings - Huge staple in my Fall wardrobe. Love finding ones with great detail and patterns
Shoes - I buy a pair of boots each year and although I still love my brown lace up Steve Maddens from last year, I have fallen in love with these ones (also Steve Maddens) and I live in my Moccasins.
Tops - Loose knit Sweaters are always on my shopping list for Fall/Winter and this year I'm loving Jean Shirts and fun T's.
Jackets - I live in Ontario Canada so Jackets are definitely needed..I like switching mine up. I have my eyes on jackets by Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply. 

What are your Fall Clothes/Accessory Essentials??

Just Slap Some Sparkle On It

Hi Dolls Tonight while I was re-dyeing the blond in my hair I decided to paint my really neglected nails. As you can tell by the pictures my one nails got damaged in a shaving accident (lol only me) but at least they look prettier now..every thing looks better when you slap some sparkle on it:)
I used Misa in 238 Perfect kiss & Essie a cut above.

FOTD (Using Recently Reviewed Products)

Good Morning Dolls, I Just got ready for the day and decided to use products Ive recently Hauled and reviewed on here so you can see what they look like on and my current thoughts on them. Its a very simple look but that's usually what I go for day to day.
Revlon Whipped Foundation - Loreal Magic Lumi Concealer and e.l.f Setting  Powder
Pale Yellow & Chocolate Brown  shadows from Sleek Matte Palette - Annabelle Smudge Paint
Liner in Tar & Tart Amazonian Clay Mascara
Nars Laguna Bronzer in 3E - Nars Blush in Douceur - Browzings in light
and MAC Up the Amp Lipstick

*Benefit Porefessional Primer - Favourite Primer
*Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation - The best foundation Ive ever tried hands down. I'm a smitten kitten
*Loreal Magic Lumi Concealer - I use this daily. Alone and over other concealers, really brightens under my eyes.
*e.l.f Setting Powder - Been using this to set my concealer and it works great..not sure about it giving a white cast because I don't use my flash.
*Nars Laguna Bronzer - AWESOME
*Nars Douceur Blush - Gives a gorgeous soft colour to the cheeks, I can see myself using this one a lot this Fall
*Sleek Matte Darks Palette - I was over the moon winning this palette. I'm a huge fan of mattes and the pigment of these shades is fantastic. 
*Annabelle Smudge Paint Gel Liner in Tar - Smooth and pigmented..lasts all day.
*tarte Amazonian Clay Mascara - This one Lengthens, volumizes and doesn't make your lashes all clumpy.
*Rose Salve & MAC up the amp Lipstick - Both Amazing.

Haul Time:)

I was super proud of myself today (well a lot lately). I should start by saying we have a few malls in my city one of which is across the street from my home but the one with the best stores is not as close so I don't go often and when I do I buy whatever catches my eye (some bad choices) well anyways I didn't go over board like I usually do on my shopping trip this morn..hence the proud feelings:)
MAC Up The Amp - Nars Douceur - Rose Salve & I used
500 of my points for this Benefit set which includes
Porefessional and They're Real both I love.
* A separate post on the Blush and lipstick will be up with this post
Face Masks - Sephora Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover - Blonde Hair dye
Todays Sample + 2 Samples of UD Naked Foundation
YAY New Candles
I know this may still seem like a lot but me going into MAC and leaving with one Lipstick or Sephora with a single blush & eye make-up remover is a big deal for me..Got to save for IMATS and NYC:)

MAC Up the Amp Lipstick

I have been obsessing over Purple toned Lipsticks a lot lately from Lavender to dark vampy shades. Today at MAC I picked up a new one...Check it out dolls:)

 Loving it:) What do you think about Purple Lipsticks?

NARS Douceur

If read my posts you will have seen that this beautiful subtle blush was on my wish list and today I caved. I actually fell in love with a few other Nars Blushes but decided this is the one Ive wanted the longest so I went with it:)
My usually brighter the better blushes have turned into more subtle shades lately. I think this one is just perfect but I don't think it would show up on everyone.
