I'm SOOO excited!

3 cheers.. no 4 cheers for Makeupalley swaps! I've gotten so many cool things in swaps...right now I'm trying to get my hands on MAC's MSF's and so far I've gotten So Ceylon and I have Glissade, Shimpagne and Gold Deposit (hope this one is not too Gold!!) coming in the mail this week! Hopefully both of these work on me!! All I've gone by is the swatches I've seen online and they both look very pretty! *fingers crossed!*

I'm starting to loose track of what I have coming but these are what I remember! LOL

I also have Buxom Lips in Dolly, Anastasia brow kit, Benefit High Brow and Mac Tango lipstick.

Then I went a little overboard at mydivascloset.com and got sooo many NYX lipsticks!

Prestige Pure Shimmer

I went to Walgreens and picked this up today. Lollipop26 reviewed this on her blog http://lollipop26writes.blogspot.com/2008/11/prestige-kind-of-day.html and it looked beautiful on her... though she can pull everything off so I had to try it, too!

I don't really care for this color to be honest with you so I think I'm going to take it back and it the Glam Tan I believe it's called (they were out today so I grabbed the Pure Shimmer).

These things smell like CLAY! Yuck yuck yuck! It's a very strong smell, too! The smell doesn't linger but it's strong at first! The Pure Shimmer is way to light on me and totally washes me out.

Fingers crossed they get the Glam Tan soon because I'm not digging this one!!:(

My Favorite Hollywood Make-up

Hands down would be Megan Fox! I love the way she (or her MUA) does her make-up. It's stunning and flawless every time... and natural. I'm not one who can pull off heavy make-up (especially eyes) without looking like a clown or a drag queen... so Megan's make-up style is one I hope to emulate when I have time.
I love how she plays up her eyes with enormous lashes and plays up her lips with beautiful colors. Over all in my mind her make-up style is perfect!

Flirt! Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette

Tonight my mother in-law gave my husband and I a gift card to Khols. My in-law's come over every Friday so my husband and I can have date night. We were trying to think of something fun to do without spending a lot of money. My mother in-law told us to go to Khols and split the gift card and see who could get the best deal for our money. I was off to the make-up section!:)

I found this awesome 40 shadow Palette by Flirt! Let me tell you... it's awesome! Ten times better than the Coastal Scents.. at least I think it is. The colors are soooo beautiful and very well pigmented. They go on great and stay on beautifully! I'm really excited about this palette. There is every color in the rainbow plus some.

This was on sale for $22 and the Flirt shadows usually run around $10 each. This palette also came with a huge gift bag but I gave mine to the girl working the register because she really liked it a lot and it was the last bag.... so I told her "Merry Christmas" it was all hers... personally... I didn't think it was all that cute but shhh... don't tell her.

This is WORTH getting!! Seriously! Hurry hurry.. it's Limited Edition!

Here it is at Khols http://www.flirtcosmetics.com/templates/products/sp.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY6756&PRODUCT_ID=PROD14363

Best Tanning Lotion

I know tanning is so bad for you but I love it!! I love the way it makes my skin look and feel...I love being able to lay down in the warmth ALL ALONE for a few minutes. It's my time.

I've used a lot of different lotion throughout the years...I've tried a lot of sample packs trying to find just the perfect one. I finally found it and let me tell you.. it's a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!
I tend to go for the lotions with a bronzer in it to give me that extra glow. This one gives me an extra extra glow... it's great! It's called Fiesta Sun Platinum Tini - Contouring Blend Bronzer.
I highly recommend it if you are a tanaholic. The smell is ok (one site on the lotion said the fragrance was a "sensual white floral" but I don't know about that) but the smoothness and the color it gives helps me overlook the just ok scent. Also, make sure you wash your hands right after you put it on otherwise you'll have brown in between your fingers. That happened to me and it was kinda embarrassing!

Platinum also has benefits of the anti-aging and skin firming ingredients will leave your skin looking and feeling years younger. Nourish your skin with a variety of vitamins designed to protect against damaging free radicals. Infused Kola, Licorice and Grape Seed extracts will help rejuvenate and pure Extra Virgin Olive oil to keep your skin look and feel silky softPlatinum Ingredients: Unipertan
Squalane
DHA
Vitamins A, C, E
Aloe Vera
Olive Oil
Green Tea
Ginseng
Grape Seed Oil
Golden Seal

Sounds good to me!

CHI Flat Iron

I have to say I'm pretty impressed with it. I found mine off of Amazon.com. I just typed CHI flat iron and on the page it says look at new or used so I clicked on it and I found a new one going for $60.. good deal but what made the deal was if you open up a VISA card through Amazon they give you $30 back... so I got my CHI for $30... ok... that's awesome. These Flat Irons are anywhere from $170-70 new... make sure you look at amazon if you are interested in one!!

Ok.. so my thoughts on it.

I have a really long, wavy/curly hair.. pretty much difficult hair! The CHI did an amazing/FAST job at making my hair look really straight and very shiny! I love how you can curl your ends with it, too. My only gripe is it gets SOOOOO hot... I burnt my fingers a few times. The outer shell gets so hot and and because the iron is so thin there is not much to grab and if you aren't careful you will burn your fingers on the side.

I'm pleased with it and would recommend this to any friend and I do think it's worth the price and in my case I didn't have to pay much and I hope you have the same luck as I did if you are looking into getting this!!
