5 Current Favorite GlamourDoll Eyeshadows;

Hi guys.
So, as you saw in my Cyber Monday Deals post, I told you guys Glamour Doll Eyes was having 30% off the site. [Except Grab Bags, Collections, Circus Shadows, & Gift Certificates]
I decided to go through my collection & pick out my 5 favorites.
This was toughhh since I own a ton of their shadows.
It took a good little while to narrow this down to 5.

I have the older & newer shadows. The bottom shadows are the current labels.

Here are my picks;

Descriptions from GDE`s site;
Brown Eyed Girl is an extremely shimmery brown with hints of purple undertones. Not vegan.

Olivia Green* is flat, matte, medium green pigment.

Bare Naked* is a mild, natural, gorgeous beige with a low sheen.

DinoSpotz* is an interesting color. It is a brown/red color with a hint of green glitter. The green really comes out when you use this shadow wet! This color is beautiful.

Dirty Jeans* is teal green and rubs into green-blue with golden hues.

My Thoughts;
I picked Bare Naked because this shade is my most favorite shade from GDE. I fell in love when I bought this. It`s the perfect shade for me to sweep quickly across the lids for a quick makeup day. Olivia Green I had to pick up after seeing Julia`s [missjbm22 on YT] galore of swatches. Brown Eyed Girl actually surprised me. I though this would be a nice shimmery brown shade, but upon swatching, it appeared more purple to me. So I knew I was in love after that! Dirty Jeans & DinoSpotz have duo chrome finishes. So I knew I was sold. As you see above, DinoSpotz looks like a reddish brown, but when swatched, the green really pops. Dirty Jeans to me looks like a light wash denim, but when swatched appears like a gold-ish light blue color.

As mentioned above, here is Julia`s swatch video.
I swear she has almost every shade ever made!

Be sure to check out the sale, which begins 12/28 @ 12AM CST & will last until 12AM CST on 12/29. Code to use is cybermonday11!
Be sure to check them out!

Thanks for reading ladies!

I am a GDE affiliate, but I purchase all of my GDE on my own.

New Wet `n Wild Palettes Haul;

Firstly, if you have not yet, click here to enter my Maybelline Baby Lips & Lots of Lashes Mascara giveaway!

Also, hello & welcome to all my new followers.
We are sooo close to hitting 150!

OMG ladies!
I finally found the new W&W palettes!
I have been stalking Walgreens like crazy!
They just landed last week at my local Walgreens.
I bought out the entire display. Lol.
I picked up all 4 of the new palettes, as well as some for my next giveaway.

Here are the babies!

The I <3 Matte palette is the one I`ve been wanting the MOST!
&The Baked Palettes.
From what I`ve read, the I <3 Matte palette is not completely matte. There is one or two shimmery shades if I read correctly. I don`t know if I`m going to like the baked palettes. I normally am not a fan of "baked" makeup. Like last year, the holiday palettes each come with a pencil liner. I can`t wait to use these & come up some FOTDs using these!

Best part? They were BOGO 1/2.
Be sure to check out your local Walgreens for these new palettes!

Thanks sooo much for reading!
I appreciate you guys so much.

Review: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm

Hi guys!
So I`m going to be reviewing the Baby Lips lip balm that I received.
I`ve been using one in particular like crazy.
So far I am definitely impressed with this balm.

Here are the 5 that I recieved;

The one that I have been using is Cherry Me.
It has just a slight tint to it.

Here it is on my lips;

I have religiously been using ONLY my Rosebud Salve lipbalm, but after trying this lip balm out, I may have found a cheaper alternative. My lips get very chapped in the colder months & this balm has been keeping them super moisturized. This balm has SPF 20. According to the packaging, their studies show lips were visibly less dry, less rough, more supple, & also give you better looking lips. Cherry Me does have a slight scent to it. It smells like cherries & I love it!
So, now let's weight out the pros & cons.

Affordable.[Around $3-$4]
Come in a variety of shades.
Very moisturizing.
Lovely fruity scent.

Some may not like scented balms.
Color payoff not too pigmented.
Only lasts about 1-2 hours.
Packaging maybe a bit "childish" for some ladies.

Would I repurchase?
Yep. &I plan on getting the grape one when I find it.
Have you ladies tried these yet?
If so, which is your favorite?
Thanks for reading.
&Be sure to check out my blog for a giveaway of 2 of these tomorrow!

Review: Maybelline Great Lash Lots Of Lashes Mascara

Hello ladies.
Today I have a quick review for you guys.
I`ve been testing out a new mascara & thought I would share it with you.

Here is the packaging;
I am in love with the wand. As you can see above, it is a tapered wand.
It definitely helps easily reach every lash on your lower & upper lash lines.

Before & After shots;
[Sorry I couldn`t get the EXCAT same angle.]
My lashes look non-existent without mascara. Lol.
The packaging suggests you to NOT wait for the mascara to dry before applying another coat. It`s probably best so that you avoid clumping.
So, let`s weigh out the pros & cons.

Affordable[around $6.50]
No clumping & no mess.[Per the packaging]
Tapered wand.
Adds some volume.
No flaking.
Perfect for reaching your inner & lower lashes.

Not waterproof. [For some, this may be a con, I personally don`t mind.]
May not be enough volume for some people`s liking.

Would I purchase in the future?
YES! Personally I don`t mind that this mascara does not give a a TON of volume. I think it gives me the perfect amount, without it looking like I have falsies on. Plus no clumping like some of the other mascaras I have purchased in the past. Again, you have to make sure you do NOT wait for the mascara to dry before adding more coats. The wand is what has really won my over.

Have you tried this new mascara yet?
If so, thoughts?
I will be having a giveaway for 2 of my followers to win one of these!

Natural Hair; Twist It Out

Hey ladies!
I haven`t done a post related to hair lately, so I just thought I`d share my latest hairstyle with you all.
I`ve had my hair straight for the last 3 weeks & figured it was time for a break.
So, I twisted my hair Monday night & decided to do a twistout this week.
The results this time came out AMAZINGGGG!
I got so many compliments today & since it`s getting colder, I`m trying to find some styles for winter.

&I only used 2 things. The Organic Root Stimulator[ORS] Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Lotion to moisturize & coconut oil to seal. [I got the Olive Oil lotion from Sallys & the coconut oil from Whole Foods.]
I`m in love with the results.
This will def be one of my go to styles this winter.
To my fellow natural & curly girls,
what are some of your favorite styles for the colder months?

Thanks for reading.
&Have a lovely weekend.

GlamourDoll Eyes Circus Collection;

Hey guys!
I am soooo excited about the newest GDE collection releasing 11/15/2011!
Vee decided to team up with Natasha[Myeyeshadowisodd on YT] to create the circus collection.
This will be a permanent collection & let me tell you, the shades are amazing!
Here`s a photo of the packaging;
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Super cute!
Also, never before has GDE sent out a collection in boxes.
So this is also a major plus for me as a GDE lover.
Easier storage!

The colors in this new collection are:

Bearded Lady - a medium to dark brown inspired by the luscious beards of the women of the sideshow. The silver shimmers throughout add a hint of femininity.
Big Top - mimicking canvas tents, this medium toned yellow with red shimmer ties together the traditional colors of the circus all in one.
Cotton Candy - who says cotton candy has to be pink? This light to medium blue with pink shimmers brings forth the playfulness of the spun sugar treat. This color is NOT vegan.
Electric Chair - FLASH! This satiny/velvety white, somewhat metallic looking shadow is inspired by the shock of the electrical current. JOLT!
Fiji Mermaid - this greenish blue tells the story of a commonly used sideshow act. The Fiji Mermaid is alive and real with green shimmer undertones, reminiscent of scales.
Fire Eater - inspired by the heat and the excitement of the fire eaters act this eye light uses red, yellow and orange colors to bring the fire-y spark.
Oddity is a very unique blend of shimmer and matte. This is a lime green but almost looks duochrome as well!
Sword Swallower - down the hatch it goes! This semi metallic silver with silver sparkles embodies the shine and sharpness of the swords used in this traditional act.

Here are the swatches;

I love the names of these eyeshadows!
Oddity is the old color already apart of the permanent line. I plan on purchasing Cotton Candy, Bearded Lady, Big Top, & Fiji Mermaid.

If you are not familiar with the prices of Glamourdoll Eyeshadows;
Single Sample Baggie: $1.25
Sample Baggie Collection: $8.00
Single Sample Jar: $2.50
Sample Jar Collection: $16.00
Single Full Jar: $6.00
Full Jar Collection: $32.00

Along with this new circus release, GDE is also releasing 2 new eyeshadows!
Grenade & Candy Floss. I do not have descriptions for these two, but they are gorgeous colors as you can see below.

You can purchase GDE here;

I can`t wait to get my hands on these shades!
I may also pick up a few for a giveaway!
Are you ladies excited for this collection?
Which shade[s] would you be interested in trying out?

[All images posted in this blogpost are from GDE`s facebook or sent by Vee. I do not own these photos, nor do I claim to. Also, above is my affiliates link. I will get a credit if you use the above link.]

Walgreens WnW Mini Haul;

I picked up some Wet `n Wild goodies recently from Walgreens.
They were having a BOGO1/2 on all eyeshadows.
So I HAD to find these palettes.
Also, I was lucky enough to find the lipstick Ravin Raisin on sale too! :D

I picked up Blue Had Me At Hello & Petal Pusher.
Someone hid these behind the 6-pan palettes & tried to leave the broke ones in front.
Luckily I was able to finally find these unbroken for myself. :D

These 2 particular single shadows[Kitten & Envy] were $1.09 each. Plus I got 1/2 off one of them due to a sale @ Walgreens. Such a steal! I also picked up 2 of the lipsticks in Ravin Raisin. These were on sale for $1.59. I figured I`d pick up 2 since this is one of my favorite purple lippies.

Where you guys able to catch the Wet `n Wild sale?
If so, what`d you pick up?
Thanks so much for reading.

FOTD; Pushing Petals

Hi guys.
I recently picked up some new Wet `n Wild goodies & figured I`d use them for a FOTD.
I have been searching for the 8-pan palettes & everytime I would find them, they would either be broken or sold out. Luckily, I was able to find Petal Pusher & Blue Had Me At Hello finally.
Here`s my FOTD I came up with using Petal Pusher.
[&Please excuse the brows! I need to fix them ASAP! Lol.]

What I Used;
Wet `n Wild`s 8-Pan Palette in Petal Pusher.
Wet `n Wild lipstick in Ravin Raisin.
NYX Powder Blush in Pinky.
Sephora Liquid Liner in Black.
Avon Extra Lasting Mascara.

Hope you guys enjoyed.
&I will be posting my Wet `n Wild haul soon.

Avon Haul #4;

Today I`m going to share yet another Avon haul with you guys.
Recently they had some good deals & new products I wanted to try out, so I picked up a few things.
I also ordered some gorgeous colored gel liners, but they ran out.[Boo! :/]

I picked up 2 more of the Avon Makeup Remover Lotion, they were on sale again for $.99! I also bought the Avon Extra Lasting Mascara in Brown & Avon Satin Satisfaction Lip Color in Va Va Vino.

I picked up this cute gift set with Mini Avon Pencil Liners & a zodiac necklace that I think is super cuteee.
Closeup of the necklace.
Swatches of the mini liners & the lippie;
I loooove everything I got. I actually thought the liners were gonna be liquid, but I didn`t read the details. The payoff on these liners are AMAZING! Also, the satin lip color is to die for! I need to pick up a few more before they go off sale. The zodiac necklace I thought would be cute to have, though, I wish it were a bit longer. Oh yeah, the mascara is my new favorite! I`ve been using it everyday.

As always, these items can be purchased from your local Avon rep or on my e-store.
Since this is the holiday season & Avon has a TON of gift sets, I thought I`d offer a discount just for my blog followers!
From now until Dec 12th, you can shop my e-store to save 10% on your order in my shop.
If you spend over 30$, you always get free shipping.

Thanks soooo much for reading & I hope you guys enjoyed!
Also hello, to my new blog followers! I`m getting very close to 150.
Once I do hit 150, I will be having another giveaway! :D
Until my next post, have a lovely day.

Hey ladies!
I have been getting into the habit of taking care of my nails again.
They have been peeling lately & looking horrible.
So I`ll be doing more NOTWs now! Yay!

This week I used OPI`s You Don`t Know Jacques & San-Tan Tonio[ring fingers only], as well as China Glaze`s Crackle Polish in Lightning Bolt.

This was how it looked without the crackle.
A little boring for me.

So I added the crackle to the ring & index fingers.

What are some of your favorite nail polish shades for the winter?
Thanks for reading ladies!
