Hi guys






Hi guys! I'm sorry I that I fell of the face of earth. 2012 was such a bad year for me. I lost three family members and I'm just starting to feel better about my situation.
 
 I just wanted to post something real quick. I wanted to let you know that I will be coming back real soon. I bought a new house and I am finally getting my makeup Battle Station ready. I haven't really bought too much with cosmetics but I am going to try to post regularly.

Thank you guys for being patient with me. Its been a crazy ride and I'm trying to think positive.

Inexpensive blush-BEAUTIFUL COLORS!!!


Hi babes! I am now back to my regular schedule and I finally had a little bit of money to buy some makeup. YAY! I heard lots of great things (mostly YT reviews) about La Femme Blushes. I was skeptical about purchasing anything from this brand because I wasn't sure if people were really in love with the price or the actual product. Some  people swear by ELF and I am convinced it is because of the price and not so much the product. I have a love hate relationship with ELF. lol

I'm always excited to try new blush from companies other than NYX, MAC, Milani, Nars, Benefit etc.... These blushes cost me only $3.00 a piece. They also have pan refills for only $2.50 each. Great right? Below are the colors that you can choose from.


I didn't want to buy pan refills because than I would have to buy the empty palette. I wasn't even sure I was going to like the blushes so, I just bought four of the regular $3.00 blushes.I bought these blushes from www.MakeupMania.com. I ordered the blushes 10/24/11 and they arrived on 11/10/11. They do have really cheap shipping ($3.00) but it does take a while for your ordered to processed and shipped. Below are the colors I ordered.





Top--Purple Passion--Mullberry
Bottom--Framboesia--Cinnabar

Final thoughts about the products: The pigmentation very bright and vivid. I did not use a lot of the product to get the right amount of color. The price is pretty good for the blush. I am used to spending $19.00-$30.00 for one blush and these blushes are just as pigmented as some of the higher end brands. The brand has a really good color selection and there are different finishes as well. I very rarely see that with some of the inexpensive cosmetic companies. 

The only negative is the lasting power. I have very dry skin and blush can fade on me very quickly. With my Nars blushes, I would not have to reapply for 6-8 hours. Unfortunately, these blushes only lasted about an hour and half. :( I am going to try using them with a cream blush so that maybe I can get a couple more hours. Even with that said, I still think they are worth $2.50-$3.00. They are better than the $3.00 ELF blushes. I hope you all can try to check out this brand. 




I am so glad to be back guys! I really miss interacting with your all. Much love

YEAH BUDDY!



Hi babes! I hope you all had a great Halloween. OMG Have I been busy with work/kids/Halloween/vacations/car stuff.


Where to begin? After I lost my dog, the hubster thought it would be a good idea to take the kids out of the state. So we decided to visit my most favorite place in the world...Louisiana! I cant even begin to explain why I love this place so much. New Orleans is the most coolest place that I have ever been to my in my life.

On to the car stuff. My husband has been working very hard these last couple months with drift races and allllll kinds of other ishhh. Seriously the last 3 months, I have felt like a single mom. This is another reason I have been MIA.

My honeys car finished 2nd place at Formula D. I am so proud of my boys! They love cars/racing and we are really lucky to have a supportive/knowledgeable group of guys on our team.  


 Our new car was revealed this week at the SEMA convention. This is why I have no money to buy makeup. It cost us so much money to have a booth at the convention not counting all of the travel expenses for all of the team. My hubby spends all our damn money on his cars. I still love him tho.

okay so that's what I have been up to lately. SEMA ends tomorrow and I should be back to my regular schedule. I haven't bought much makeup because of the cars/husband expensive hobby but I will try to do some other posts. I miss you all. THANK YOU for all your kind comments about my dog. You all seriously made my day. I read your comments to my kids when they were sad. I appreciate you guys so much!
