I try my best not to intimidate people when it comes to experimenting with makeup but there are some products out there that are just flat out intimidating. There’s no getting around it. Take liquid eyeliner, for example. People always joke that it can sense fear but I truly believe that. I’m serious! I can crank out a killer cat eye no problem with gel liner. But liquid eyeliner? I have to be focused.
Some of you lucky ducks have been soaking up all the good sunshine and warm weather for months now. But for most of us on the east coast, we’re just now reaching those hot 80º days and you know what that means. Time to start chasing that summer glow! You already know I’m over here trying to glow in the dark like an Atlanta housewife so I wanted to share some tips to get you glowing too.
TGIF! My best friend is in town for a few more days and I’m off this weekend so I’m feeling great and life just seems easy right now. Can’t wait to knock out this last shift and get some dranks! But before I go have probably a little too much fun I want to make your your Friday a little easier too. So here’s a quick round up of my Too Faced Melted Metallic Lipstick Haul!
The Melted Metallic Lipsticks are similar to the original Melted Lipsticks but they’re still in totally different ballparks. The Melted Metallic Lipsticks are thinner and have a bit more sheen along with a subtle metallic shift. Too Faced markets them as liquid lipsticks but they feel more like glosses to me as they’re mostly sheer (yet buildable), never fully set and don’t last too long (3-5 hours). However, I still enjoy the formula! I do like the original Melted Lipsticks a little better but the Melted Metallic Lipsticks are still quite comfortable to wear and look great on the lips.
Told ya, I was going matte lip crazy over here! And why wouldn’t I? Makeup companies just don’t seem to be letting up. We can now add Kat Von D to the ever growing list of summer matte releases as she recently announced on Instagram that there’s going to be 15 new shades coming in July. I literally wanted to faint when I seen the picture because I already spot at least 6 shades that I may want. I can’t wait for the next peek at these!
Will you be getting any of the new Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks?
Anyone else going matte lip crazy right now? First, it was the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. Next, was the Ruby Kisses Queen Matte Lip Lacquer. Then, I started digging the Sephora Cream Lip Stains. Now MAC is releasing a crap ton of new, permanent matte lipsticks after I already grabbed a handful of the new Ruby Kisses Matte Lipsticks. My pockets just can’t catch a break this summer!
Happy pink day! I hope you had a productive yet not too hectic hump day. Mine was just hectic! I had a ton of things to do before heading off to work including a last minute prom appointment. Needless to say, I could use a glass of wine and a dose of pink right now!
So I’ve finally joined SnapChat! If you’re not familiar with SnapChat, it’s a picture and video sharing app you can download on your smartphone (iOS and Android). Everyone has been obsessed with it lately so I figured I’d give it a go too. I love Instagram (follow me here) and as I’m saving up for some YouTube equipment (extremely excited!!) I thought it would be a cool idea to ease myself into it via SnapChat. Since I mostly work evenings and nights, I often don’t have time to catch the daylight and snap some good pics. However, I can still add some pretty fuzzy ones on SnapChat from my front facing camera while slacking off in the break room, right? And how about some quick yet awkward “get ready with me” vids and tutorials, too? Sounds like it could be fun! Meet me over on SC to join in! My screen name is: fancieland.

Sometimes in the beauty world, companies release products with gimmicky names that don’t always make sense. Like the CoverGirl Lip Lava glosses. I like the name, it’s cute. But when I think of lava, I think of hot. Not, “Ooo hot metallic glitta!” However, it seems that Lancôme was a little more spot on with their cute, yet gimmicky Lip Lover glosses. The first time I tried Violette Pirouette, I thought, “Wow. This stuff really does love lips!”
Are you crazy about matte lipsticks? Well get ready to lose your mind because MAC is releasing a brand new Matte Lip Collection this summer filled with permanent, previously released and brand spanking new Matte and Retro Matte Lipsticks. And guess what? They’re all permanent! YAAAAAAAAAAS!
Don’t you just hate when time moves a little faster than you’d like? I know that’s a weird complaint to have for a Monday but since I’ve picked up a To Do List book I’ve been challenging myself to be as productive as I can be before work. As a result, I got a lot done today but, of course, I almost forgot about Manicure Monday. Whoops! (more…)
