My 1st BzzAgent Review

I want to state this first off. I'm a BzzAgent, I was given these products for review. That does not effect the way I feel about these products. Now that that's outta the way.

OMG am I in love! I'm loving the Baby Lips lip balm.
The colour I'm in love with is "Cherry Me" I love the red lip look. It's an amazing lip balm, super moisturizing & just a sheer hint of colour, It's not over powering in any sense. I wear the Peppermint before bed every night & my lips are super duper soft in the morning! So they claim on the packaging "To last 8 hours" "Have an SPF of 20" "After 4 weeks, lips are visibly renewed & revitalized" I can't claim that it has renewed & revitalized but it's amazing on my lips. Super smooth & just a little bit of sheen. It's been an amazing thing for me to have.  

The other thing in my bzz kit included was Maybelline Lots of Lash Mascara. This isn't my Holy Grail mascara but it does a decent job. I don't love nearly as much as I do the Baby Lips. I haven't had a problem with it clumping or flaking. While this isn't my holy grail of a mascara, if your not looking for major volume & a little length booster it maybe yours. Like I said it's not the best nor is it the worlds worst one either. Over all I'm enjoy it. My only wish is that the brush size was a little larger. Not that it's tiny I just long lashes & it would just make my life a little easier.

Over all, I'm enjoying both of the products. I'm enamored with the Baby Lips the Lots of Lashes is okay especially since it was a sample in my bzzkit. I dunno if I'll buy it again but I'm enjoying it for the time being.
So until next time.

I failed.

So my video was a major failure. It was like 15 minutes of me rambling. So I'm gunna try going another way about it. I'm a space cadet & I'm only human. I don't wanna get famous that's not the reason I started blogging,  don't get me wrong getting famous would be amazing but I don't plan on it. This is something for me to enjoy. I enjoy make up.
Let me explain. Growing up my mom worked for a deli in Illinois. She had a short poodle perm. I can't explain to you how bad it was. She'd get it touched up every 6-8 weeks. She has a friend who is a beautician.She had that style for as long as I can remember. Until we moved to Colorado when she didn't have the luxury of getting it touched up. She started to grow it out. Now it's longer then  mine! I digress, I remember being 10; getting my hair highlighted & my eyebrows waxed. It was my first brush with beauty & I was hooked. It changed the way I viewed myself & at 10 years old it was crazy how a few caramel coloured highlights changed my confidence. I've never been a slender girl I learned that if you had a pretty face & were funny you could be the center of attention & laugh with the bullies opposed to having the bullies laugh at you.
Fast forward 10 years & becoming a beauty school drop out. *queue the cheesy song from Grease*. Here I am blogging after our second thanksgiving this year. I want to go back to school but till then This is what I'm doing. I want to be an esthetician in a few years I will be but till then, This is my experience with skin care, make up & hair care.
Till then.

AHHH So I've done it!

Hey everybody!
So after a week of nothingness & blah I've figured out a way to make my little craptastic web cam camera work, for video on YouTube. It's up loading as we speak. I haven't quite figured it all out but it's getting better.This falls under figure it out as you go along. I feel like now that I have done this one I can do damn near any thing, except keep my self to a schedule, I wanna try to be here at lease twice a week. I know right now I'm kinda talking to cyber space. There are thousands of thousands of blogs out there in the interwebs. If you stop here by mine I feel honoured, it as simple as that. In my video I have mentioned swatches that I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to put them in the video so here the are.

  • Jilted is a creme lipstick &  is described by Urban Decay as " sheen & full coverage opaque" I find the sheen to be minimal, not even a full iridescent. 
  • .Jesse is a lipgloss claims to be sheer & have a sparkle, I find it to be a little on the sticky side. If you missed seeing my review on youtube it smells like brown sugar oatmeal. It isn't terrible & wears off kinda quickly.
  • Protest is a loose pigment. I can only dare to call it a blacked green it has some glitter but it's not a major deal breaker.
  • Chronic is a matte bright lime green, it has some very very tiny glitter in it. 
  • Big Fatty is this thick gooopy formula that hasn't gotten good reviews. I like it. I haven't had a problem with it like most have. They have said the brush is too big.
  • The eyelash primer poation is something I'm still playing around with & determining if I even like it. 
Well that's all for now.  My brain is a little fried.

    So much makeup!

    Hi everyone! So I confess I've gone on a binge. Ebay is my weakness. I have gotten a ton of stuff: falsies, Benefit cupid's bow (I believe is discontinued),BareMinerals in light, BareMinerals blemish therapy, mascara 3-1 shield, two 8 colour palettes from Avon  in neutrals & greens, the 120 palette, Kat Von D in Truth, BareMinerals in vintage pearl blush,& last but not lease Too Faced shadow insurance, On Halloween I bought Kat Von D's palette in Angeles, & I'm loving it. I'm sorry I still haven't figured out how to do a video I'm proud of. :( Also on Halloween when Zoya was doing their promo I got four bottle of polish Pippa,Mitizi,Tao, & Jinx. I haven't gotten them yet but hopefully in a day or two. I'm really hoping to get this whole ball rolling as far as youtube reviews are concerned.
