My Lime Crime Confession

I’ve been stalking this makeup line lipsticks for months!

Finally, I clicked ‘submit order’ for my Cosmopop and Glamour lipsticks!

Cosmopop on My Pretty, Peachy Lips

The color looked different on me compared to the fair model because of the lighting. I used my phone camera since my camera at the time was out ‘sick’ and I couldn’t wait for it to get better aka fixed. The lipstick is pretty pigmented, I usually apply nude color lip-liner, apply Cosmopop and rub it down with my fingers to smooth it out.

I was so excited with my popping color that I just went on a photo shoot rampage! As you can clearly see. Stay tuned for my blog on the oh la la Glamour color.

           

They have so many different, unique colors to chose from-for a Makeup Artist this is Candyland!

 I’m impatiently waiting for them to bring back Mint to Be and New Yolk City!

Crossing fingers they’re back in stock before summer gets here.

Oh! Here you can check out all their other awesome colors at Lime Crime

My lips will stay popping, rocking this summer.

Caught with Make(down)

Are We Sometimes Better Off WITH or WITHOUT Makeup?

Let’s be honest, there are some of us that are blessed with natural beauty and some of us that need a little makeup help to enhance our beauty or hide certain unwanted blemishes. I, sometimes can look quite pale (as you can see on the picture shown below) and like to add colorrrr (i.e. bronze and/or blush). There are also my big, round eyes which I enjoy accentuating with my number one look — winged/cat eyeliner. 

Here is a picture of myself au natural with freshly done eyebrows (first time I threaded them) and the other one with of course makeup, what do you think?

Celebrity Mask-Off

Now, check out the celebrities I provided my kiss of opinion. Enjoy!


“The Most Beautiful Woman in the World” Mrs. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

I really love this Indian Beauty Queen turned actor! She’s absolutely beautiful! She has the natural beauty going on, and, yup, looks even better with makeup. The makeup helps to enhance her piercing grayish-blue eyes.

Pint Size Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi

Our fun-to-watch Jersey Shore character! I really like how Snooki looks without makeup…natural definitely suits her! If I were her Makeup Artist I would accentuate her eyes with a more natural makeup look with taupe, brown, purple shadows.

Tattoo Hottie Kat Von D

Hmm, I was a bit indecisive with Kat. She doesn’t look horrible without makeup, I think it was a bad shot taken by the photographer (we all have those). I like her extreme smokey eye look tagged with bold red lips which she owned for years. 

FYI she has her own makeup line in SEPHORA (click here to check out Kat Von D Makeup line)

Soul Singer Ms. Adele

Adele’s New Zealand born, Makeup Artist, Michael Ashton has released a craze of makeup tutorials trying to imitate Adele’s retro glamour makeup look (including myself!). She always looks absolutely stunning with her signature cat/winged eyeliner makeup.

Ms. Pouty Kerry Washington

Honestly, I cannot believe that’s how Kerry’s face (left) looks like without makeup! That’s why I placed my vote/opinion in the middle. However, comparing both photos, Kerry looks better with makeup.

You be the judge! But remember that you and I know that 

B E A U T Y runs skin deep; and is in the eye of the beholder.
