You Don't Make Sense

Hey Beautiful,
     So I don't know if you have heard of the Coastal Scents 88 palette but it's amazing. There are 88 different shades of the rainbow that are super pigmented and its only $20. I know can't be true. There's so many colors that you can do anything with. Perfect for people just beginning with make up or wanting try out bright colors. You can also get 88 neutral palette, though I don't have one for myself so I can't make any promises. But want to know something funny? This palette is super pigmented but there hot pots (single pan shadows) aren't. I thought that the colors in this palette were super pigmented so the hot pots must be too, and it would be awesome because they were so reasonable at just $2 each. They weren't pigmented at all, just a bunch of shimmer. The matte ones, were very chalky and need a lot to get even a light color. So sad. Just thought I'd tell you guys about a great palette and an odd inconsistency in a company.

Mac Attack

Hey Beautiful,
     I was in the mall today and stopped by my Mac to pick up two basic things that's for some reason I didn't have. So for some reason I have had the same blush for the past 5 months and I don't like it. Makes no sense right. Today I picked up my first Mac blush in "Coygirl", I love it. This color is a bright muted pink, that's perfect for my super pale skin tone. I also got one of the new Sheen Supreme lipsticks in "Behave Yourself." It's comparable to a lustre lipstick, therefore it doesn't dry out your lips. In the tube it looks like a Barbie pink and on Taylor's lips it is a Barbie pink (we got the same exact lipstick). However on me it looks as if I'm wearing a sparkly lipgloss and I don't like those. But this lipstick is an exception. You don't have the stickyness of a lipgloss and its not too sparkly. Either the way I like the way it looks.

Almost Black

Dear Beautiful,
   I like black nail polish but sometimes it's too stark of a comparison on my very pale skin. As we get farther into winter the whiter I get, though I'm never very tan even in the summer. So usually I pick out some very dark colors, that aren't black. Such as navy blue or a very deep plum but i wanted something with no shimmer of another color. My go to color is 'Black Sand' by Sally Hansen, Hard as Nails. It's a very dark gray, almost black but a few shades lighter. Though you need three coats to get it fully opaque its so worth it in the end.

Rain, Rain Go Away

Dear Beautiful,
     So it's been raining in New York quite a bit lately and I don't really have rain boots. Ok well I have this pair of purple zebra rain boots that I got from Target for like $30, but I don't really like them. There too heavy and kind of really ugly. I have been dying for a pair of Hunter rain boots for like a year and a half now, today I took the plunge and bought a pair. I figured that I have loved them from a far for so long that it wouldn't be a waste of money. I absolutely love them. I just want to wear them everyday regardless if its raining or not. But it should rain Tuesday so I guess I could wait.
     I went with a very classic pair, original if you may. I got plain black ones because if got them in red or pink I wouldn't wear them unless I had red or pink on, I'm oddly picky. I figured I could switch all different sock in and out of them to add a little color. For right now the socks I got are knit gray, black and white stripes. I wanted the cream fleece or cream knit ones but they didn't have them in my size, actually they had almost no socks in my size only the striped one and a pair of red. Also with the socks the 5-7 fit really well but for some reason they weren't long enough to fold over the boot. And the boots were a little too big in the 8, but way too small in the 7, the socks made them fit better. I'm also short, so the boots may come up a little below the knee on some for me there on my knee almost over. But I love them so much, definitely worth the money.

  Stay Beautiful, Rose.

Buns Away

Hey Beautiful,
     So I know I'm late on this but I just got the Goody Spin Pins and I live them. At first I was a little iffy on if they even would work and then thought it would take some playing around with. But no, they are the easiest thing to use and hold so well. Even if you do a loose bun it still holds. There's absolutely no getting used to how they work, just which way to spin the pins. I wish I had bought them sooner. So in short there amazing and worth buying.

Hey beautiful,
     I have been so MIA and I'm going to try and fix that. So I have made a few beauty resolution's, nothing crazy, that I am going to try and get through this year.
1) Blog at least once a week.
2) Stop biting my nails.
3) Drink more water.
4) Never sleep with my make up on, even if its just mascara.
That's all I have, I figure if its a short list I'm likely to get it done.

  Stay beautiful, Rose
