Pokemon Inspired MOTD

So Pokemon came out on Saturday, and you best believe I was at the midnight release with my boyfriend right beside me on Friday. But to celebrate the occassion I decided to do a look that took elements from my soon to be starter Pokemon, Fennekin. And here are the results!


All I used for this look was my Burning Heart palette from Sugarpill (which I should have a review up for by Wednesday or Friday) and the shades Handwritten and Arena from MAC for my crease and highlight.  Over all I'm pretty satisfied with it! Though Charmander can also come to mind looking at it...or that could just be me. Who knows.

So My Wallet Hates Me: MAC Edition

So I got my school refund check (left over grant and scholarship money) and used it to go shopping for a few things. A new iPad, that I'm typing this on and loving, a pair of Beats (expensive @$$ headphones my brother has been asking for for three years), some stuff for my mom, some stuff for my step sister, and I'm doing some shopping for my step dad and step brother for Christmas as well. But I also used the money to help me finish (well for now) my makeup collection. So a big part of this was creating a neutrals palette of MAC shadows that work for darker skinned ladies. I bought the following:

~ Handwritten
~ Melon (Pigment)
~ Patina
~ Cranberry
~ Era
~ Mulch
~ Woodwinked
~ Amber Lights
~ Swiss Chocolate
~ Ricepaper
~ Satin Taupe
~ Expensive Pink 
~ Bronze

I also acquired the 239, 224, 217, 219, and 275 brushes, aka my first MAC brushes ever.

All and all I'm pretty excited to use this stuff. I don't think I'm going to be able to swatch everything all at once, so I think I may do two or three things at a time and see how it goes. I also pretty much bought everything but the Neon Pigments from Sugarpill and a few things from Sephora, but all that will get it's own post at some point this or next week.

Until then, have a blessed day!

Fall Wish List 2013

I've got wine taste on a beer budget...Or actually, no, I've got a wine budget because I've got a check coming. :D So this is my wish list for Fall 2013 for makeup! This isn't counting anything I want from Sugarpill because well...I'm buying out the rest of their stuff that I don't already have, aside from the neon pigments...Question is where in the world I'm putting all this stuff....

1. Canon T4i Camera [Body Only] - $499 - So I've been itching for a new DSLR for awhile now. Particularly one that has a flip out screen to make recording videos super easy. So after doing a little bit of research I decided on the T4i from Canon. I already have the some lenses for it, I'm familiar with Canon's, and well, I don' want to spend the money on much more right now until I start doing more with my photography...

2. Sephora Eye Pencils in Beige and Gold - $14 each - So I need these for a birthday look I'm planning on doing next month. I've never tired Sephora Eye Pencil's before so this will be interesting....But I hope I'm not disappointed! The look I'm planning on doing can be seen here

3. Sephora by OPI Gel Kit and Just a Little Dangerous Polish - $159 for Kit. $17.50 for polish - My nails have some kind of magic anti polish force field around  them that makes it impossible for polish to stay on for more then well, a couple of hours without chipping. My cuticles aren't bad, my nails are smooth, I don't know what it is...So this is essentially to see if this is my magic end all be all solution.

4. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - $29 for 4 oz - I love this stuff! I bought a tiny bottle off of Haute Look and it didn't last me long. So I decided I want to go ahead and buy the big bottle of it so it'll last me for awhile.

5. Beauty Blender Duo Set - $40 - So I bough the Beauty Blender like a week ago and I think someone threw it away. -_- I used it once and I haven't been able to find it since! So I'm ordering a set this time. That way if one magically 'disappears' I have a backup. And getting the cleaner seems pretty important to.

6. Smashbox Halo Powder - $59 - So I got this in that Try It kit I got for the BB cream. Not to fond of the BB cream, and I should probably post a review on that, but I LOVE this powder. Oh my goodness. It makes such a difference in my over all look. The price is a little steep, but my goodness is it worth it.

7. Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2 - $59 - Great value, pretty colors, and I want to put more color on my waterline so why not? I love their lips pencils so much, so I'm hoping the eye pencils don't disappoint.

8. Smashbox Photofinish Primer - $36 for 1 oz -  I've only had samples of this stuff so far but I love it! So might as well buy the full version. Again, one of those things I should probably post a review on...

9. Sephora Train Case - $110 - I need a new train case. One this expensive? No, but I've heard good things about this case and it's really big, from what I've seen, so I'm hoping it works for me because I've got a lot of stuff and no space.
