Gold Filled Faceted Spinel Ring

Hello Gals! A while back a friend made me a ring and I really enjoyed it... While stone shopping .. I saw this beautiful black facet spinel and thought it would be perfect for making rings.. I used her technique and created my own.. What do you guys think?
It's good enough for my Etsy shop?

Sneak peek! Hautelook haul

wOO hOO lookie lookie! goods from Hautelook!

Amazing things comes in small packages! 

Edit: I loved the mini gloss included in a set I bought a while back so I decided to try the set. The colors looked a lot lighter when I ordered it. I'll have to double check my confirmation email, I'm hoping they sent me the wrong one. =X

This time around they had a few brush sets on sale. This was the cheapest one. More pictures to come.

In this bubble wrap there are Two Cream shadows and One cream blush ( I think ) Never seen these before.. Might be discontinued

I just got the package. Thought I would show you what I got. Will do a more in depth haul soon. Going hiking at Wallkill, NY this weekend.

ORIGINS Rich Rewards ( intensive moisture treatment for scalp and hair )

Within a year I professionally permed and dyed my hair and had TWO at home dyes...
My poor hiar is super dry... like the sahara!

I saw this at the CCO today for only $10. I don't know anything about this. Just picked it up simply because I need to take better care of my hair..

I was looking at Bumble and Bumble shampoo and conditioners at the CCO.. it's a huge bottle but it's $68 ?? crazy right?

blah.. I did some research on the ORIGINS product and I think I hit the jackpot.

check out the reviews on ORIGINS website. Do note that they changed packaging. This is probably why it's in the CCO.

I will post more updates after I test it out myself.

Urban Decay NAKED palette (swatches)

  Hello hello! Yes I got the Urban Decay Naked Palette! I spotted this at the Sephora near my work and Bam! in my face.. Like calling my name.. I snatched it.. quick and honestly.. I had a smile on my face.. Thinking.. this could me mine! but for $44.... yicks.. but reasoned with myself does come with a Primer potion and two 24/7 liner... and beside.. I felt people eyeing the palette... made me want it even more!

Just for comparison. The left one is the mini version. This is the one you'll get in the palette.. the right one is the regular full size.

Overall I think the palette is nice but I would not pay more then retail for this since Urban Decay are making them as we speak.. Really.. I'm not making this up.. I received an emial saying they are making more..

LA Hauling?

Hello Ladies! I went to LA for a few day at the beginning of March and here's what I got there.

~Stila Items~
I know it's kinda small, just click to enlarge the pictures
I also bought Cork from MAC I didn't take a picture of this but Stila's Tolima (center) is a really good dupe for Cork and so is Makeupforever's #127. Check out my Youtube Video for the comparison.

On the left is Stila's smudge pot in Bronze and on the right is Shu Uemura Painting Liner in white.
I didn't try the smudge pot on my eyes yet but it's really smooth when I swatched it on my hand and when I was removing it, the product was hard to remove.

Thoughts on Viva Glam Gaga and review on Relvon's New lippies

Hello hello, just a quick review on what I thought of the Viva Glam Gaga and Relvon's new lippies.
if you prefer to watching the review rather then reading it. You can check out my review on YouTube.

Viva Glam Gaga

Here I have Pink Nouveau (left) and Gaga (right)
According to what I read, lady Gaga was basing her color on Pink Nouveau (correct me if I'm wrong). Pink Nouveau was her favorite color but she wanted more of a softer look? Her intentions was to get the same effect of Pink Nouveau when you layer the lady Gaga lippie.

In my opinion, no matter how many times you layer Gaga. You will not get Pink Nouveau's color. Pink Nouveau is way more intense and more opaque.

So here on the left is Gaga, where I swiped a couple of times and next to it is Pink Nouveau. As you can see Pink Nouveau is a deeper pink whereas Gaga is more of a baby pink. Both colors are lovely.

There are no cons in purchasing the Viva Glams lip products. Since all proceeds goes to MAC's AIDS charity.

Review on Revlon's new Lipsticks.
070 Soft Nude (left) 020 Baby Pink (right)
 The packaging is absolutely lovely.

Look at that! Revlon is engraved on to the product.

Okay, so on the far right you have Soft Nude and on the left of that it's Baby Pink.
The overall product is really good. There's no bad smell, the color is nice. Not too instense but you can still see the color. The only downside is what you see on the picture below.

I think this is actually a deal breaker for me. They are way too soft.The ones I own have an ugly mark on the product and inside the tube due to the product leaning to one side. I mean if these were like $1.99 then I can't really complain too much but they retail for $8.99 each. I would expect alittle more from Revlon.

Let's see overall I think it's a good product but I won't get it if it's not BOGO. If the marks on the tube doesn't bother you then I say go for it. There's this purplish color that looked really interesting. Does anyone have it? swatches?
