This vs. That: Lashes

MAC 42 Lashes vs. a similar pair on eBay. Some of you may hate these lashes because they are a bit dramatic, while others may love it and it might be right up your alley. I am one of the ones who loves them! I own both of these. I bought the MAC pair first and then found this set on eBay. (since my photography skills are lacking, I had to browse eBay to find a picture of the 2nd pair.) They aren't identical, but they are a close dupe! & you can get a pack of 8 pairs for around $5 including shipping while MAC's cost $12 for 1 pair. The only downfall is they are a bit annoying to put on because the band is so thick and stiff! I stopped wearing falsies for awhile and when I tried to apply these bad boys one day out of the blue, they gave me some trouble!

Who else loves saving money?!!

MAC Holiday Collection 2010: A Tartan Tale

While browsing online I came across these pictures. This is the upcoming MAC Holiday collection. I think this collection looks cute! I really like the brush sets because it seems normally MAC has the same brushes in each set. It looks like this time they switched it up by adding different brushes, such as the 227 as 1 of the eyeshadow brushes and even changed the grouping as well. It looks like they combined face brushes and eye brushes in both sets as compared to having face brushes all in one set and eye brushes in another. I also love how they look just like the full size brushes, but in a travel size. (As in black with silver handle, instead of red, green, etc in previous collections) I own most of the MAC full size brushes so I don't necessarily need these, but I have to say-I am tempted!! What do you guys think? Impressed or no? & what do you think you'll buy, if anything?

Bored Much?

What do you do when you need a change? The first thing I do is change something about my appearance...whether it's something drastic like dyeing/cutting my hair or something simple like hitting the tanning booth.

The other day was one of those days. I was sick of looking at myself and needed to do something quick.
I've had the "Monroe" piercing since I was 18. I got it before it became popular and then once it did, I took mine out. I always wore the smallest possible jewelry with a tiny gem just like everyone else because I thought it was cute and girly. I decided to repierce it and this time put a black stud in to actually give it that "beauty mark" effect. I like it for the's something different and just what I needed.

Does anyone else get in these moods? & how do you fix it?!

Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion and Peel

Let me start off by saying I have never tried any other type of microdermabrasoin kit so I can't do a comparison, this is just a review from my point of view after using this product.

I purchased this about 2 weeks ago from Walmart for about $25 and have been using it twice a week. It claims to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles and reveal smoother, softer and more even-toned skin.
I can say that the look and feel of my skin has improved since using. My skin feels softer and smoother and also looks more radiant. I have read some reviews where people have claimed that their pores look far I don't see a change in my pores but I'm hoping to have the same results! (the pores on my cheeks next to my nose are on the larger side). 

This is a great product for the price. If anyone else is interested in trying microdermabrasion but don't want to spend a handful of money, give this a go and see how it works for you! Spend the extra money on a new lipstick or a cute pair of shoes! ;-)

Until next time dolls...xoxo
