HHHmmmm....Makeup from Payless. "Unforgettable Moments"

Introducing Unforgettable Moments beauty and bath line... a collection featuring romantic fragrances, luxurious moisturizers, and gorgeous color palettes for eyes and lips.

The Product tag line: There are moments in life you’ll never forget. Your first date. Your first kiss. These are moments that are forever etched in your memory, moments when you feel your finest, moments that define who you are.”


I have to admit it was one of those "you had me at hello" moments. I immediately began to think of my wedding day and all those special dress-up moments of my life. So of course i did some looking through the display.

Unforgettable Moments gives a nice collection for eyes, nails, lips, body and fragrance. Prices are reasonable…

Nail polish $2.99/1 or $7.99/set of 3

Lip Gloss $2.99/1 or $9.99/set of 4

Eye palette $7.99 (four different color sets)

Eye/Lip palette $9.99 (five different color sets)

Perfume $19.99 (two scents)

Lip Balm $3.99

Well I chose to go with my personal weaknesses which are eyeshadows and lip glosses !

The shadows were nicely pigmented, but I especially liked the liners one brown and one blue. They both had a slight iridescent look to them which was cool.


Open!
Eye kit in "soft petals" Lip palette in "pretty plums"

 
 I liked the eyeshadow, and may get the other palettes in the future, but i am not too sure about the lipglosses. Not too pigmented as i would like but, maybe it's just the set i got!




Soft Petals
4 shadows 2 liners
1 applicator

 
 



lip gloss "Pretty Plums"




As you can see the 1st 2 colors only gives gloss no tint.


You can purchase them in your local Payless Shoe Store or at http://www.payless.com/ or http://www.unforgettablemoments.com/Makeup_c_33-2-0.html

My 2 "keep in my pocket at all times" products !!

This morning I realized that I no longer use the mascara/s I used. I have tried numerous mascaras and none of them really worked for me. Although I wasn't exactly sure what I was searching for, I never found it. So I made my way to Rite Aid and decided to try...Maybelline Falsies. In a nutshell, I have not looked back to any of my other mascaras that sit abandoned on my vanity. This gives me volume, length and such a boldness that i do get asked the question "are those your eyelashes?" Ha ha ha! Yes they are, just exploding because of my new found best friend! I keep one in my purse, one in my vanity drawer and one on top of my vanity! Yes I love it!!
Maybelline The Falsies Volum'Express Mascara - Blackest Black
Maybelline The Falsies Volum'Express Mascara - Blackest Black

Another of my favorite products is the M.A.C Lip conditioner with SPF 15. NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT!  The product description says :A lightweight conditioning balm for the lip formulated with SPF 15. Protects the lips from everyday aggressions, holds in moisture, provides gentle repair to dry lips. Contains Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Extract, Wheat Germ Oil, vitamins A and E. Petroleum based to seal in moisture yet smooth to apply, non-sticky on. Slightly vanilla-flavoured. Colour-free.

And believe me it does what it says. After brushing my teeth I apply this and continue as needed through out the day. Not much more to say except I love it. And it's another that I keep everywhere and instock!

Whoo Hoo Pure Excitement!!




I am so excited,
I have enjoyed blogging and youtubbing (is that a word) about beauty, makeup and sharing everything I have learned with all of you. Today I received word that one of my favorite beauty sites (which I am proud to be apart of) has compiled a list of the best beauty blogs; yup you guessed it...I MADE THE LIST.

Dancing in my seat.

I am a newcomer to the blogging world and am honored to be counted amongst my elders in the field!

E.L.F.


A big thanks to my friend Emily, who has sent me the new E.L.F 32 color eyeshadow palette.  Along with the palette I also got 4 of the eyeshadow duos and an eyeshadow brush as will as a blending brush (you can never have you many of those.

You can clearly see the colors here and they colors are so pretty and sooo pigmented.

So today I decided to try the eyeshadows (not the full face. lol so no foundatio or anything else). Ok maybe some lipgloss that's all. LOL!



Used maybelinne falsies mascara, NYX lip liner in Citrine, E.L.F Palette, M.A.C. lip conditioner, E.L.F minty lip gloss in Houston, coastal scents eye brush!
Unfortunately the lipgloss had two strikes against it; firstly it smelled. I know it is called "minty gloss" but it smells more medicated than minty. the odor wears off about 5-6 minutes later, so if you can get past that with out freaking out or puking, then you're good. Secondly it was not as pigmented as I had hoped, I used the NYX liner and filled in the lips with it then topped with the lipgloss and i still wasn't satisfied, but it is a nice lightly tinted gloss.

Birthday trip to SEPHORA

So, my best friend took me out for my birthday around Union Square and what did my eyes behold, Sephora. Talk about mouth watering, heart racing, excitement like a kid in a candy store. But I kept my composure because I had no idea where she was taking me. AND yippie we went in. Wow the joy that filled the air of all the women filling their baskets with goodies. The smiles that walked by and the backs of hands covered in swatched eyeshadows, liners, blushes and foundations; It was almost overwhelming but I controled myself. :-)


don't you just love that little bag
