Thanks so much Itsura!! : )

1. I have a chicken pox scar right smack in the middle of my eye brows. (I'm sure you've noticed in pictures! haha)
2. I'm always singing. When I'm walking around work, around my house, in the car, you name it. To my best friend's torture, the song is usually "Tomorrow" from Annie. lol
3. When I was little I had a lazy eye, so when I would try to cross them one eye would go inwards  & the other would stay center. hahah
4. I'm going to school for business. I'd love to be a business owner. My goal as of now is to go to beauty school after I get my bachelor's & maybe one day have my own salon.
5. My grandma's maiden name is McGuiver. I always thought that was so cool. lol I am French Canadian, Irish, Dutch (basically everything that doesn't get tan!) & probably a few other things we don't know about. My other g-ma was adopted.
6. I have this weird obsession with baking cupcakes. I haven't done it in awhile, but I get crazy into baking them & sometimes decorating them. haha I make them from scratch, too! : )

7. I've bitten my nails all my life. Trying to get them to grow out is a constant struggle. Gross habit, but I just can't seem to break it!!

I nominate...

Burlesque Show Beauty
Emily Loves
Naive Nails
Reflections of a Reve Noir

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

REVIEW CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blast

I've had the pleasure of purchasing the new CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blasts & wanted to share my thoughts in case anyone else was interested in checking them out, too. I only purchased three of the shades (Buy 2, Get One Free, thanks Ulta!) in Citrus Flair, Onyx Smoke & Silver Sky.

From CoverGirl.com:

The two different, specially contoured ends of our ShadowBlast stick make it easy to create a bold, colorful, smoky eye. A duo of expertly paired shades provide the bold, spotlight-ready looks loved by today's hottest makeup artists.

These are supposed to be easy ways to pull of a smokey look. And I really do see their intention. The different ends are nice, the product is creamy & easily blendable, & they are fairly cheap! But in reality, these are much too greasy to really be used alone. Creasing is definitely an issue here. I was a little more interested in using them as a colored eyeshadow base. With a base to prevent creasing underneath & a shadow over the top to set it, these really have the color pay-off to be darn good bases.

In order from left to right: Onyx Smoke, Silver Sky, Citrus Flair

I'm definitely impressed with the color pay-off of these. I have been using them with the following products:

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Painterly Paint Pot
Eyeshadow of the top of the Smoky Shadow Blast to set it in place

If you don't have oily lids & don't already have to use an eyeshadow primer, you may be better off going with whatever eyeshadow base you prefer (MAC Paint Pots, Cream Color Bases, etc), but for the price of these I don't have a problem with it at all. I already have to use an eyeshadow primer anyway. But with that said, still better yet: NYX JUMBO EYE PENCILS. Hope you found this helpful. Thanks for reading!

50 Followers, Thank you!

So sorry for the lack of posts lately guys! But I just hit 50 followers & I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you. When I started this blog I really had a lot of fun with it but I never thought anyone would actually read it!

I'm flattered & appreciate the people I am getting to know through the blogging community. This is such an interesting phenomenon & I'm very proud to be apart of it. : )

So again, thank you. I have a couple FOTD's sitting in my camera that need to be posted so keep an eye out! Hope everyone had a good New Year!
