Bright Blue using Coastal Scents

Here's a look I did on Sunday.  I used a lime green color on the inner half of my eyes and a bright blue on the outer half and in the crease.  The lime green kind didn't turn out.  You can't really see that color and I'm not sure why but it still looked pretty good.  IMO.

Sally's Haul

So I went to Sally's and got a few things.  I got the Aphogee Reconstructor, which I always use.  I got the Generic Chi Serum.  I can't wait to try this.  I got a sample of Ion Deep Conditioner.  Last but not least, I got Orly RidgeFiller.  I already tried the ridge filler and it works great.  My nail polish went on super smooth and the surface of my nails are super smooth.

Everyone is snogging but Hermione

Ummm, has anyone seen the new Harry Potter movie?  Wasn't there supposed to be a snog between Ron and Hermione?  I didn't see them snog.  I saw Ron snogging Lavender, I saw Ginny snog Harry.  I saw Ginny snog some other guy whose name escapes me at the moment, but I did not see Ron snogging Hermione.  I just need to read the book.  I'm stuck on the 4th one though.  I have seen the Goblet of Fire so many times that it is making me not want to read the book.  I'm reading the books because I know the movies are missing some of the sub-plots and that's what I really want to read about.  I think it's hard for me to read it  because I feel like I already know what's going to happen.  I haven't seen any of the other movies nearly as many times as I've seen the Goblet of Fire so I think that's why I'm tired of it and not the others.  I'll get around to finishing it eventually.  I'm reading something else right now anyway.

Coastal Scents Concealer, 88 Shimmer & 88 Warm palettes

What can I say, I love them!  Practically everyone on the planet already has at least on of the Coastal Scents palettes and I realize that they have been discussed a million times.  I don't care though because I love my palettes.  I'll keep my review short: lots of pigmentation, awesome colors, enough said.

Beauty of Essence Brushes

I was in need of a brush that I could put on liquid foundation.   I have the MAC 187 but I feel that it gives a really sheer coverage and I wanted something to give me more.  I was watching MichellePhan on Youtube and she was using this 2-sided foundation and concealer brush.  I had to have it!  It took a while to find it, and I could only find it in this pack of other brushes but I did, and i love it.  The brush gives a very even coverage and gets into all the small places.  I highly recommend it.  I already owned the concealer brush and it's an o.k. brush.  I really don't care much for concealer brushes because I think they're a little to hard.  I usually pat with my finger or use the foundation side of the brush to blend concealer.  
The pack also included a 2-sided blending & eye shadow brush and a 2-sided blush & powder brush.   As for the other brushes, I have only tried the blush & powder brush.  I used the the angle side and found it worked great for contouring.  These are great quality brushes at an inexpensive price.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Concealer

I am always on the look out for the perfect concealer.  I normally wear MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer which I really like because it gives good coverage and is moist. I'm still on the look out for a better concealer though because I feel like I need extreme coverage and although the Studio Sculpt does give great coverage I feel like I need more.   
 I was excited to try the Dream Matte Mousse Concealer by Maybelline because I had tried the foundation in the past and thought it was a bit too thick so I thought the concealer would be thick too.  I think there were 5 different shades and I got Ivory Light 235.  The shade is bit too light but once I put foundation over it you can't really tell.   Unfortunately, the mousse is very dry and doesn't blend easily.  I won't purchase it again but I will try and mix it with some moisturizer or something to see if it is more useable.

Here I am

Wow!  I can't believe it's been so long since I did a blog entry.  I have just been doing all my usual things so I'm not sure why I haven't blogged lately.  Anyways, I've been reading some other blogs and they have inspired me to get back on the horse.
I'm very excited because I finally ordered some palettes from Coastal Scents!  Yea, to free shipping!  I should receive them sometime next week.  I'm a little worried though because it is extremely hot here and I hope the heat doesn't melt or destroy the makeup or palettes.  I'm sure I would freak out if that happened.  I'll be doing lots of looks with the palettes.  I won't promise that I will post all the looks I do, but I will definitely post some.
I will also be doing some reviews.  I have recently bought a few items that I want to share; some brushes from Beauty of Essence, the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse concealer, and the Maybelline Mineral Bronze Bronzer.  I will do a review on all of that.
