This vs. That: Cream/Gel Liners

I don't know about anyone else, but I prefer gel or cream liners over liquid or pencil. I love the lasting power of the gel/cream and also the intensity of color. There are so many different options as far as brands and colors go when deciding to buy any makeup. Some people prefer only high end, some prefer only drug store, others prefer whatever gets the job done..which is me. lol

We've all heard of MAC fluidline. It is one of the more popular gel liners on the market and many people own and use it. I do own it and I do love it, but is it my favorite? Ehh, I don't know about that. My first liner of this style was the L'Oreal HIP cream liner in black. It worked well and I liked it but it seemed to have dried out so fast. The cost of the L'Oreal liner was about $10, I figured if I was spending that much for drugstore why not just try the MAC. So I made my way to MAC and picked it up. It had great consistency and the color was also intense, it didn't seem to try out nearly as fast so overall I was pleased...and then I came across Wet n'Wild cream liner. The price is ridiculously cheap (around or less then $4!) and let me add the quality is great! I love this stuff!! I pick this over the fluidline each and every day! The only downfall is that the packaging isn't nearly as nice and looks cheap. I am someone who cares about packaging but if you can get past that, then it's a great product. Definitely thumbs yourself some moola and give it a shot!

Baking Fun: Tie Dye Cake

I spent the afternoon yesterday baking with my little brothers. I wanted to do something out of the ordinary and surprise them so this is what we came up with!

It was a little more time consuming then the average cake but I just love how it looks and they were so excited when I cut them a piece. I was a little worried that it might have a funny taste from the food coloring but no worries at all, it was actually very yummy! haha

Has anyone ever made one before?!

How cute are these?

Mini Haul

I stopped at MAC the other day to pick up a lipstick I needed for a swap. For some reason blush is something I always seem to pass on, & it's not that I don't like blush because I actually love it...I guess I am just content with what I have. (which doesn't include very many MAC blushes)
So I decided my MAC blush palette needs to be filled. I picked up Pink Swoon and Blunt. Pink Swoon is already depotted and in the palette, I think it's such a nice color...but Blunt is still in the box, in my drawer. I am a NC30 naturally with no tan and I know this would be a good contouring color but I am afraid maybe it will be too dark? At the moment I am using my MAC Emote blush for contouring and it seems to do the job perfectly...Emote is quite a bit lighter so I don't know.

Does anyone have any input for me? Should I keep Blunt or exchange it for a different color? Help a girl out!

This vs. That: Primers

We've all heard of UDPP, it works wonders and we all love it....however lately I've noticed that it is bothering my eyes. Maybe it always has, who knows?..But I am realizing it now. My eyes itch shortly after applying and sometimes they even begin to water.

This is annoying for a few reasons.
1. I just want to itch my eyes therefore messing up my eyeshadow.
2.) my eyeliner/mascara starts to run, and...
3.) it's just plain uncomfortable!!!

Not cool!

I haven't tried too many others but the few I have just didn't work. They caused creasing and it was just a mess. (although sometimes I do like the messy look). I decided to give the Pilladio eye primer from Sally's a try. I have to say I like it. It doesn't cause irritation to my eye :-) but the packaging is smaller then UDPP and also the same, causing a lot of product to go to waste.

Moral of the story...if anyone else's eyes are irritated by UDPP or any other primer for that matter, the Pilladio is affordable and easier to get to. (well, for me anyway!) Just a suggestion...

Until next time dolls, hugs & kisses xoxo

Lady Gaga: Ridiculous or Not?

Now, don't get me wrong..I like her music, but COME ON. She is just completely ridiculous. Half the things she does is unnecessary and her "dress" she wore to the VMA's was made of raw meat, along with her shoes, hat and purse. I am not a vegetarian but animals die daily for us to eat. Okay, we are surviving off that...but for her to wear it as an outfit I don't agree with.

I don't buy it that she's just "1 of a kind' or "trying to stand out". The girl is an idiot and obviously starving for attention in every way possible, as if being famous isn't enough attention for her already.

What are your thoughts?
