Surprise the Dragon Look of the Day

It's a day that ends in "y", so I thought it would be appropriate to use the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette on my eyes.  This time I used some neutrals on the upper lid, and the bright green shade "Dragon" on the lower lashline.  I thought the green pop of color on the lower lashline was sort of a surprise, which is how I came up with the name of the post.

China Glaze Sex on the Beach and Some Hearts

I have found a beautiful nail polish color.  It's China Glaze Sex on the Beach.  It's a rosy pink with some gold shimmer and very very tiny silver sparkles.

I have been wearing this nail color for weeks.  I used it for my Valentine's Day manicure, but added some little hearts from the Nicole by OPI polish in Love Your Life on my ring finger.

I was going to put the hearts on all of my fingers, but they were such a pain to get out of the bottle that I decided to just do the accent nail thing.  And, like all other polishes with large particles of glitter (I consider the hearts to be kind of like glitter), this was a chore to remove.

Those hearts look so pretty in the bottle, but, ugh, the fishing!

This is definitely a new favorite polish.

Just a little bit of sparkle.

Whatcha got on your nails?

Throwback Thursday with Cosmedicine

Who remembers the skincare line called "Cosmedicine"?

Cosmedicine was a brand that was introduced in 2006 (I think), and was supposed to be a Sephora exclusive brand for at least five years after it debuted.  Unfortunately, I don't think the brand lasted that long.  At least, not as a Sephora exclusive.  I remember seeing it in Meijers (a grocery store chain here in the midwest) a few years later.  The brand is now defunct, as far as I can tell.

Spring-y Pinks with Urban Decay and Becca

I know it's only February, but I cannot wait for spring.  Maybe that's why I'm tending to use so many colors that feel spring-y (as in spring inspired, not elastic and bouncy).  Of course, I had to use the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette.

Pardon the wet hair.

Freeze! It's a Vice 3 Look

I had some fun with my new Urban Decay Vice 3 palette last night.  I decided to just go all out with it and create a colorful, dramatic eye look.  I only played with my makeup, so my hair is really weird, and I'm wearing a purple sweatshirt.  The sweatshirt does have rhinestones on the shoulders, so it's a little fancy.

Perfect Pairing: Purple and Peach Look of the Day

Nice alliteration in the post title, eh?

I've been doing a "shop my stash" type of thingy lately (y'know, where you go through your collection and find something you haven't worn in a while and make it a point to use it).  One of the things I put in my "use this product" basket is Milani's Baked Blush in Luminoso.  Nikki from Nikki Tutorials has been raving about and using this blush a lot in her videos lately, and it made me want to pull it out, which then gave me the idea to "shop my stash."

MDSolarSciences Mineral Crème Broad Spectrum SPF-50 UVA-UVB Sunscreen Review

I have actually been meaning to write this review since last summer, but writing/reading a review of sunscreen during the winter may remind us how important it is to use year-round.  That's what I'm telling myself, anyway.

Chocolate Gold Face of the Day

I was trying to think of a name for this FotD, and all I could come up with was naming it based on the fact that I used the gold shade (named Creme Brulee) in the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette.

New Year's Day Face of the Day

So, this is what I wore on my face for New Year's Day (yes, I am leettle behind in the blogging department).  I watched the Michigan State football game, so of course I had to wear some green eyeshadow.  I've done this look tons of times before, but I love it so much that I can't help but repeat it.
