Let's face it, with this recession going on, everyone is looking for a break anywhere they can get it. And since we all want to still look good and buy our usual things that make us look good, here is a list of high end brands (Mac, Bobbie Brown, Cargo) vs. cheaper drug store (Ulta, Jane, Loreal) dupes. STAY FABULOUS!
****if you're looking for something in particular, hit CONTROL+F on this site and type in a word (ie... parrot ---if you're looking for Mac Parrot). it will pull you to the first instance of the word. Makes finding a particular color ALOT easier than looking through the whole list.

I recently discovered Sally Girl makeup at Sally's Beauty Supply after seeing someone use it on Makeup Geek. The eye shadows are $0.99 but with your sally's card they're $0.89!!! so are the lip glosses and blushes. the shimmer bricks are kinda high though...$1.99. LOL! So I picked up a few eye shadows, a shimmer brick, and a lip gloss last week. So far i'm happy with the colors i've tried with the staying power and pigmentation. Which is not good because now i'll be buying alot more!! all the things i used in the look below, i already had which were basics (black eye shadow) or was a free sample I got from Mac except for the new Sally Girl stuff. So the look only cost me $5!!! You can't beat that

STAY FABULOUS!!! *smooches*

What I used:
MAc Studio fix fluid in NC45
Mac blush in Blunt to contour--not necessary but you can use it if you want
Mac blush in Coppertone or any peachy toned blush you have will work
Sally Girl shimmer brick as highlighter--the back says 'GTG', not sure if that's the name but its the peach one
UDPPNYX white jumbo crayon all over my eye
Sally Girl Green Apple e/s on inner 2/3 of eye
NYX Charcoal pigment in crease
Sally Girl Snow e/s as highlighter
Mac Carbon e/s in outer V or any matte black you have
Mac #36 lashes
Mac Hodgepodge liner or anything you have that's a neutral brown
Sally Girl l/g in So Barbie--LOVES IT!!


IT'S ME!!!! ok so i decided to revamp myself for the weekend. So i got some new hair---i went with jet black and super short! anywho, this is the look to go with the new hair do (for now). I rarely use Deep Truth so I tried it out and loved it! hope you like it too :-)

I LOVE PURPLE! every shade, no matter what it is. Since i thought i lost my mojo last week, i decided to go back to what i i had a new purple shirt that i needed a look for. ha!

And sorry for the crappy lighting. i'm usually doing looks on saturday mornings and taking pics in my dining room with good natural light. but I woke up late for church and didn't have time to take any pics. So i resorted to taking these late that night. you should have seen me searching the house for good lighting for these pics *sigh*


nc45 studio fix fluid
mac rose quartz blush
mac blunt to contour--which i did a crappy job of

mac trax on lid and almost up to brow
mac parfait amour on outer lid
nyx milk jumbo pencil on inner 1/3 of lid
mac entremauve pigment in crease
mac shadowy lady in outer v
mac vex as highlight

bobbie brown petal blossom l/g (great gloss to wear by itself for a sheer pink tint--but it's pricey..i'm still looking for a dupe)

I guess I would call this my natural look. Its pretty much what I wear when i'm running late for work. It goes with everything and it takes like no time to do because there's really nothing to it but its still a little something. and you can always make it go from this look to something more intense by just adding either some espresso or carbon in your crease and outer V. or wearing a red lipstick with it....hhmm might try that one day :-)

NC45 studio fix fluid
MSF medium as highlighter
Iman Earth 2 shadesick to contour
Mac coppertone blush
Mac Blonde's Gold pigment all over eye--you can also subsititute this with Mac Indianwood paint pot
Mac Carbon on lashline smudged up--you can also substitute this with Mac Espresso
BTFL on waterline and top liner
Mac Hodgepodge liner
Mac Underplay l/s
Rimmel l/g in Lure


A friend pointed out recently that I don't always post my looks on my blog that I do on other sites. and now i see that is true. So i'm spending a little time tonight to i guess repost looks. enjoy!

I used Mac Steel Blue pigment, NYX Green Tea, Mac Cork, Mac Carbon, Mac Shroom


here is a look using Heavenly Naturals Diva Pigment ( ). i like how the bright purple is balanced out with the browns....which you will see i do alot. it makes it more every day wearable IMO.

Heavy Metal
