Wet N Wild Petal Pusher

           Ok I know this has been around for a while lol. I'm still excited enough to write a blog post about it. I have raved about wnw shadows in the past so I'm sure this is'nt a great surprise to you guys, but I love it !!

          The right side has three mauve-ish colors and a sparkly charcoal. I pretty much followed the directions to get this look.


          The left side has more true purple and violet colors. This palette is perfect for those with green, hazel, or brown eyes. Again I just followed the directions to get this look.

           This palette is everything I hoped it would be, and more :) It was totally worth the wait.

Come On Urban Decay !

          Urban Decay has just become the next cosmetic company to give way to dollars over principles. I was so saddened and disappointed to hear that they ( who have always touted themselves to be animal friendly,) have recently allowed their products to be tested on animals.

          I stumbled upon this news through a blog I'm subscribed to. It said that U.D. began selling their products in China which requires animal testing. I went to the PETA website and found that they had removed U.D. from their companies that don't test list. I also found several articles on this matter.

          I myself will not be purchasing any more products from Urban Decay. I wanted to put this out there so you can be informed of this situation so you can make your own decision. I have recently made a promise to never use or feature products tested on animals on my youtube channel. I uploaded a video about it a few weeks ago.

What's on my desk

Hi guys I thought I'd give you a tour of my desk essentials. This little basket of goodies gets me through the day.

Wet n Wild Hi Shine Top Coat

     I have been experimenting with different top coats,  and so far have not found a fav. This one is good for shine, but not great for preventing chippage ( is that a word ?).

Frog Magnifying Glass

     This is invaluable to me because of my sight. It makes all those tiny labels easier to read. I also love frogs.

Riccola Cough Drops

     I talk all the time. These are the best ! They keep my whistle wet, and I love the lemony flavor.

Pad & Pen

     Well this is pretty self explanitory lol.

Hand Cream

     This one is from caudalei. I love the cute little size. It's a mild light cream that sinks in quickly.

I also keep whatever polish I'm currently wearing . If you guys can suggest a good top coat let me know :)

Eos Lip Balm in passion fruit

     This thing is practically worn down to a nub. I really like this flavor, but it was limited edition. When it is gone I will replace it with another flavor I love, summer fruit.
