Swatches of Benefits Sugarbomb

Hello Everyone,

Here are the swatches of Benefits Sugarbomb. This is truly my most favourite highlighter/blush (really more of a highlighter than a blush) that I have used or owned. If you'd like to see my full review click here to visit my youtube channel.

Left to Right: Rose colour, lighter pink colour, light purple, and peach (barely seen), all colours swirled together.

Have a great rest of your weekend : )

**Nail of the Day**

I was so excited for O.P.I's Alice and Wonderland collection to come out!! I really wanted Mad as a Hatter and Absolutely Alice. I went and looked at them a few days ago.... I decided I could only get one, so I chose.... Absolutely Alice.

I put on two coats and was not disappointed. This nail polish in beautiful, the sparkles look the same on both the nails and in the bottle; which sometimes isn't always the case with sparkly nail polishes. The sparkles/glitter are fine particles not chunky so they cover better.
Have you guys checked out the collection?? If so which ones were you tempted by, and purchase?
Hope your weekend was great!

**FOTD** Jan 12/10

So this is my first face of the day in a really long time! And it is also the only one that is on my blog : ) I am thinking that I will start doing these posts again (although not often as I typically wear the same thing).

I wanted to show you how the Revlon Photo Ready looks on my skin. I got the liquid in 003 Shell and the Powder in Fair/Light. I will be doing a review on this but I want to use it for a few weeks before I go in to any details.

(top photo without flash, bottom photo with flash)

Face: Revlon Photo Ready Foundation and Powder (003 Shell and Fair/light).
NARS Laguna Bronzer
Too Faced Absolutly Flawless concealer (London Light)

MACs Femme Fi (lid)
MACs Quarry (Crease)
Rimmels The MAX Volume Flash Mascara

Has anyone else tried the Revlon Photo Ready Foundation?? What are yours thoughts so far?

Have a great night!

Foundation Swatches

It was requested that I show a swatch of my NARS Oil Free foundation in shade Deauville. So I thought that I would also show it beside my newly aquired Revlon Photo Ready Foundation in shade 003 Shell, and with Cliniques Ever Better Foundation in shade Alabastor.

With Flash: Left NARS Oil Free Foundation in Deauville, Middle Revlon Photo Ready Foundation 003 Shell, Right Cliniques Even Better Foundation in Alabastor.

Without flash: Left NARS Oil Free Foundation in Deauville, Middle Revlon Photo Ready 003 Shell, Right Cliniques Even Better Foundation in Alabastor.

I hope this helps. Have a great night!

Forgive me for I have sinned.....

Ahhh Please forgive me Project 10 Pan gods...

While in Shoppers Drugmart today (I was there to return a cleasner and to pick up much needed makeup remover wipes). I spoted the new Revlon Foundation and the matching powder. I said to myself "just have a look, it doesn't hurt to test it on the back of your hand".... WRONG... before I knew it I had picked them both up and was walking to the next aisle.... where I found another launch display of the Rimmel The Max Volume Flash mascara.... and something just took over me... lets call her the "if you don't buy it now you'll never find it again" girl. You know this is an addiction when you don't have enough self control to say "it's ok you, can buy it later".

So needless to say I ended up at the checkout and paying for a foundation, the matching powder and a mascara. BOO....

As my penance I will now have to finish 13 products before I can purchase any new products. Slap on the hand... and tsk tsk.

Ok so enough of the self pitying ... and self loathing.

Hope you all have a great day And I hope that if any of you are doing Project 10 Pan that you can beat the feeling of longing and panic over the new products that are coming out. Hang in there..... and wish me luck : S

Happy Monday!

ps. I will do a review on the foundations...
