NYX Haul

My order from NYX came in the mail today!  Here's what I got:
Ultra Pearl loose eyeshadows in:  White, Grass, and Charcoal
Felt Tip Liner in Dark Brown,
and the item I was most excited about...Jumbo Pencil in Iced Mocha!
I am so happy I got the Iced Mocha cause I can never find it at Ulta.
I think I'll do a review on the liner and maybe post pictures of looks I do with the other stuff.

Angels & Demons

This movie was good and bad.  The first 2/3's of the movie was kinda boring.  It was like The Da Vinci Code in that Dr. Langdon was running from place to place with a pretty sidekick looking at symbols and trying to crack a code.  The last 1/3 of the is where it got really interesting.  I think that the last part of the movie makes up for the first 2/3's of it.  It's crazy what happens!  I would never have guessed.  Crazy!  
Ewan McGregor is  amazing!  All of the actors were wonderful and the scenery was beautiful.  It's definitely one of those movies that keeps you thinking even after it's over.  I can't say that it's better or worse than the Da Vinci Code.  I think they are on the same level.  Definitely stick it out to the end cause it's well worth it.

Revlon Double Twist Mascara

This mascara is terrible.  Double Twist mascara claims to volumize lashes.  If  clumpy, smushed together lashes are your idea of volumized lashes then the claim is correct.   The first time I saw the brush I had a feeling my lashes were not gonna look good.  The brush looks like a smaller wand inside of a larger one.  The first time I used the Double Twist it did volumize my lashes and didn't leave them too clumpy.  It didn't separate them or add any length.  (I know it doesn't claim any of that but usually you get some length with mascaras.)  The second time I used this mascara I pulled out the brush and the product was clumped all over the brush!  I'm not gonna lie, I was scared to use it.  If it's clumpy on the brush you can almost guarantee that it will be clumpy on your lashes.  I decided I would  wipe the brush off with a paper towel.  That has worked on other mascaras that I have used.  Yeah, that didn't work at all.  My lashes looked like crap.  I ended up combing most of the mascara off and I didn't even attempt to apply it to my bottom lashes.  This is that worst mascara I have ever tried.

Revlon Outlet

So yesterday I went to the Revlon outlet with one of my friends.  I love this place.  It's kinda in the "trucking district" which about an hour away from my house.  Anyway, they have tons of discontinued and available Revlon and Alamy products, (and I think another brand but I can't remember which), all at a big fat discount.  I use the Revlon Lip Glide Sheer and I am running out.  Unfortunately, the color has been discontinued (and I think the Lip Glide Sheers as a whole have been too).  Well, I thought, no big deal I'll just go to the outlet.  Lucky me.  Nope, they didn't have my color!  It's really discontinued!  Boooooooo!  Oh well, I guess I'm on a quest for a new sheer nude lip color.

Dior Bellucci Look

This look was supposed to look like the Monica Bellucci Dior add but it didn't quit turn out that way.  Oh well, better luck next time.

I bought some stuff from Sally's Beauty Supply and some lip glosses from Ulta.  At Sally's I gotall Aphogee products: Keratin 2-minute reconstructor, the 2-step protein treatment, and the balancing moisturizer that goes with it.  I've used the reconstructor before and I really like it.  I'm really excited to use the protein cause I've been wanting to try that for a while.  I'm gonna use it this weekend so I'll do a review on it.

I also got 2 really nice lip glosses from Ulta during a buy one get one sale on Revlon lip products.  I got the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip gloss in Pink Pursuit.  It's an amazing light nudy, pink shade with a touch of sparkle.  The second one I got was Raspberry something or other.  I can't find the name of it.  Anyway, that shade is lovely.  It's very pigmented so I just use a hint of the gloss and it makes my lips look like I just ate a juicy raspberry.  
I actually got the Nude Attitude lip stick everyone has been raving about and I hated it.  It was a terrible color for me but the worst was the texture.  It was clumpy and left little bits on my lips. Gross.
