Pretty Little Things

For the past couple of days I've been on a quick break as 1st Term transitions to Fall Semester...soon my last school year of college will FINALLY be over!! And to kick the break festivities off, what better way than to get this beauty in the mail:

Urban Decay 15 year Anniversary Palette
Limited Edition. ALL new shades. Very Pigmented. Beautiful, Durable & Reusable Packaging. I LOVE me some Urban Decay. I'm not sure if Sephora or have picked up on it, well, I did order this a while back so maybe they should have it in stock by now. But I know they are going fast. I always buy limited edition lines because they never disappoint. Although they go quickly, you'll own something that another makeup person won't have, haha. Plus they're always new products designed just for that L.E. line, so they're always pretty cool. 
U.D. also came out with a limited edition 24/7 pencils collection, but it was just too much & I already have majority of the colors from other palettes. 
If you've missed out on these L.E. eye shadows, U.D. also just launched their 5th?? Volume of their Book of Shadows....which has similar shades. I'm not getting it, since I have their 3rd Volume & bought their 4th but gave it to my friend Nea cause I wasn't feeling it....that's why its a pass for me....but it seems pretty cool. You get eye shadows + key chain speakers + liquid liner + mascara + ipod plug-in.....pretty awesome. 

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil 
(Matte Bronzing Powder)
Yum Yum YUM!! Chocolate Lovers, this is a makeup MUST HAVE.
Although my 2 FAVORITE FAVORITE BEYOND FAVORITE makeup brands are MAC and Urban Decay....I ventured over to the Too Faced cosmetics area in Sephora. I heard about this bronzer for quite a while & since all I had was a Sephora pencil sharpener in my shopping bag, I decided to give it a sample try. LOVE the smell of chocolate as soon as you open it. Great bronzing shade for my skin tone, and its MATTE!  I already have too many shimmery bronzers. I have been using this everyday so far, & made my husband smell it about a million times, hahaha. I can't get over its delicious smell. 

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation
I wanted to have lighter foundation since all I have are just different types of Mac foundations in liquid, cream & powder....& you'd be crazy to use those as everyday face wear. So in the times that I'll want to wear some coverage, I've been turning to Neutrogena's liquid foundation. It really feels good on my skins & surprisingly has even eliminated some blemishes. I like applying it with my Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki brush (which is another must have!!), applies very smoothly without streaks & blends well. It gives you a "fresh-face" kind of look, as if you're not wearing anything at all. 

One weekend my husband treated me to Sally's Beauty Supply after making a stop at Babies R Us. I love looking at everything in there & filling up my hand cart. haha. Obviously after buy diapers, formula...etc, leftover 'kala' goes to Sally's!!
Halloween's coming up, so I was excited to buy these Sally's Girl loose glitters, which are so cheap. They even come with the clear adhesive to help you apply the glitter.
I got them in a couple of colors, I know I'll have fun with them. 
I also picked up some ORLY nail polish in warm shades.....and....
Seche Vite for some high glossy tips
It's like I got my nails done in a salon.
Enjoy, Enjoy!
