Review: Smashbox Heartbreaker lipshine--Berry

Hola ladies I'm here with a tiny review on a lipgloss that i've really been loving and I wanted to share my love for it with you my lovely readers :D

I bought this lipgloss a while back while out shopping with my friend be honest with you ladies I only bought it because my friend was awwing it and decided to get it kinda hurt me to pay $19 for  a tube lipgloss...I mean it sometimes kills me to spend $14 for a MAC lipglass; but I've grown to love it soo much I carry it in my scrubs at work all the time.

So on to the review of the Smashbox Heartbreaker lipshine in Berry from their Spring 2010 collection.
I really loveee this lipgloss, It is super wearable because you can either wear it sheer and also layer it on for  a more pigmented finish. It doesn't smell bad or taste bad, It's not sticky at all, I love the color I mean on the tube it looks like a very strong fuschia but it's really not that's very sheer yet buildable.

I did only two swipes of the lipgloss...I love wearing it, I wear it to work and for work I usually don't wear strong lip colors and this is perfect, it works great as a subtle yet noticeble color...I feel so pretty when I wear this lippie.

I really recommend trying this lipshine [if you can still find it since its LE], it's definitely worth the splurge.

Target Goodies...& Swatches

So lately i've been on a target kick...mainly because they sell elf now and I loveeee elf I picked up some of their "Elements" eyeshadows ..I was mainly going to pick up moondust because I've been lemming MAC  Satin taupe e/s and since I haven't been in the mood to go to the mall...I've been looking around for I found that Elf elements e/s in moondust is a very close dupe so for now I'll settle for that..but I'll have you soon Satin Taupe!!!

I bought a makeup bag, Target brand makeup remover (comparale to Neutrogena m-u remover), 4 E.l.f Elements e/s, compact, & Maybelline quad

So I got Moondust, Golden Glow, Wisteria, & Dusk.
So I was only going for Moondust but since I didn't wanna have it floating around on it's own I decided to pick up a compact and 3 more eyeshadows.

I also picked up another Maybelline Stylish Smokes quad in Charcoal Smokes I have 3 of them, now I only need Emerald smokes.

Swatches for Charcoal Smokes, they're a bit darker in camera flash washed it out a bit, the only thing I don't like about this quad is the highlight color.

E.l.f elements compact which I'm pretty sure many of you all have seen.
Which fits many eyeshadows other than the elements eyeshadows (ex. MAC, Milani)

Elements eyeshadows come with magnet & name of eyeshadow.

This eyeshadow is such a pretty color very close to Satin Taupe.

My New compact :D

Elements eyeshadow...
Top row (L-R) Dusk, Wisteria
Bottom row (L-R) Golden glow, Moondust
I hope this helps out some of you ladies who are lemming Satin taupe :D

Thanks for Reading!!

In love with Mark Cosmetics + mini review....

Hey ladies Im here with a mini haul from Mark....I ordered these off of a friend from work..I've been wanting to try their blush for the longest time and I finally had a chance to try it out plus a few other things so here is what I ordered

I got two lipsticks, a blush, & a eyeshadow/eyeliner duo

The shade I got is in "After glo"...OMG this blush is sooo is such a steal at only $7dollars..I got this shade because I have heard so many good things about it and it is def lives up to its hype.
it gives me such a beautiful glow without looking too shimmery or overpowering..I might get another shade and a compact for it, since I still have it in the original packaging [you have to buy the compact seperately]..any suggestions on what other shade to get..please let me know :D

look at this beautiful glowy peachy pink shade!!!

these here are the Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color  and let me tell you these are definitly moisturizing..I don't even need to apply lip balm under these babies...the colors are a little sheer but on me they do show up nicely :D

ok so I was kinda skeptical to try these out because they kinda look like a rip-off but trust me they have the same product as a normal l/s would it's just that the packaging is tiny...I got skinny dip because I loved the way it looked on one of the models in the is such a pretty nude color and I got crush because it looked like the shades I adore which are pinky/lavender shades and I love it too..

they almost look wet..that's how moisturlicious they!!!

the last thing I got is the Keep it going longwear eyeliner & eyeshadow  hmmmm....I'm not really impressed with this I tried it a few times and the purple shade is just like all the other purple gel liners I've tried, plus it's also a little on the sheer side..and as a base it super hard to blend, it dries up really quick I guess that's how it stay put for a good the gray shade is a little better it's not sheer at first I thought the purple shade was going to be an eyeshadow and the grey an eyeliner I mean they make it seem like one is a powder shadow...but both are gel consistency.

and this is $10 would I purchase more of these?...NO! I would def repurchase more of the blushes and lipsticks!

Thanks for Reading ladies!!!
