Fierce and Tangy Makeup Look


It’s great to be back dolls! I’ve been very productive this past weekend. I managed to buy a new desk, for my office. In addition, I’ve been rearranging furniture in my house.
Every couple of months, I have a propensity to change the curtains, rearrange furniture, or buy new furniture, etc. Yes, I have a BAD case of ADHD :-/ On the other hand, I went to the Zora Neal Hurston festival in Eatonville on Sunday, with my sisters. Although, there is great art, and fun festivities, I really go “just” for the food *shrugs *. I want to eat at every food booth out there. I’m sorry, I’m a foodie at heart lol. I decided to keep my makeup natural, because I didn’t want too many stares. This is the look I created, with the new eyeshadow from the Maybelline collection.

Violent Lips Review

I tweeted a couple of weeks ago, about purchasing the Violent Lip Tattoo from Sephora. You’ve probably seen some of your favorite celebrities wearing them. They retail $10-$15 at my local Ulta, but Sephora had the Gold Glitteratti design on sale for $4. Yes, I didn’t think twice about getting it lol. Nonetheless, I ended up forgetting about it, because somehow I left it in my Sephora bag in my closet :-/. Each Violent Lip package includes 3 temporary lip tattoo applications. I had to give you dolls a review. And besides, I couldn’t wait any longer. The first step was removing all residue/dirt from my lips, which followed with measuring the tattoo in length, and the depth of my lips. Once measuring is done, I pulled the clear plastic off, and placed the tattoo on my upper lip, while holding my mouth in the “ohh shape”. Then, the UPS man distracted me, by showing up with a package *that wasn’t for me *. This led my lip tattoo to shift a bit, as you see in the picture *Fail *.I then took a cotton ball soaked with water, to smooth out the tattoo. Afterwards, I let it dry fro 5 minutes, and repeated the same steps for my bottom lip.
I wore the lip tattoo for approximately 4 hours. I even went to PetsMart to buy my dog some food and toys. In return, I got strange looks and a few compliments. I completely forgot I was wearing it. It feels like you have nothing on your lips. Removing it was SUPER easy; I just lifted the corners and pulled it off. I really like the Violent Lip Tattoos, I plan to get the pink cheetah design.


Will you try the Violent lip tattoo? If so, what design would you choose?

OPI Nicki Minaj Collection Review

Hey Dolls! Where did the weekend go?!? I guess I slept right through it. I can’t begin to tell you dolls, how much I harassed the employees at my local Ulta, about the Nicki Minaj OPI collection. This dates back to the first week of January. I called them inquiring about the collection, and when exactly should they receive it. They continued to give me the same answer, of not knowing the date. I gave my information to contact me, once the collection came in. Four weeks later, I get a call about the collection’s arrival. So, what do I do? I wait 2 days later, because I totally forgot about it *Grrrrr *. Once I got to the store, I only had the option of the OPI minis *sigh * .You know I was mad at myself. But, I ‘d rather have something, rather than nothing. I will say, I have similar colors to the collection, to an extent. For example, the polish, “Did it on ‘Em” reminds me of,“Who the Shrek are You”, from the Shrek collection. My favorite color from this collection is “Fly”. I’m happy with the collection, but I wish there were more colors.

Different looks



-Did it on ‘Em: Lime green
-Fly: A deep aqua
-Pink Friday: Bubblegum pink
-Metallic 4 Life: A charcoal color w/ tons of glitter


What do you think?

Nail Polish: Ulta’s Snow White


Finally! Friday is here, and I’m so ready to get the weekend started. If you follow me on Twitter, I recently tweeted about a HUGE nail polish sale at Ulta. Brands like: Piggy, OPI, Butter, China Glaze, Essie, and etc were on sale between $2-$4. Amazing right?!?! I racked up on so many that I may need to invest in a nail rack. This week I wore Ulta’s Snow white on my nails. This is the only white nail polish I own, and my first Ulta brand nail polish. The consistency of the nail polish is goopy, and thick. I applied 2 coats, and finished it off with a clear coat. Within a day, my polish managed to crack and chip at once. Boo!!!!!! I like the color, but I can’t say I’ll be buying another nail polish from the Ulta collection. Before this post uploads, this nail polish will vanish from my nails :-/

Have you tried the Ulta brand nail polishes?

Carbon Frost Makeup Look


Happy Martin Luther King Day dolls! I’ve been sluggish this past week. I blame the weather; it’s been cold for the past 2 weeks. This weather has kept me in, and little to nothing was done. I believe 5 things from my to-do list were completed *sigh *. There is beyond doubt, a plethora of work to achieve this week. Apart from the weather and my list, I went out with a group my friends on Saturday night. We danced the night away to some old school hip-hop, as well as Billboards top 100 songs of today. I got home really late, and decided last minute to put this look up for you all. I listed everything below. Have a GREAT week!

Nail Polish: Sally Hansen’s Lite



I feel like I can NEVER have enough nail polishes, and I’m always on the hunt to add to my collection. I purchased this nail color from my local Target. Sally Hansen has been around for many years, and they released a new High Definition collection a few months ago.  Despite, the numerous nail polishes I own, I don’t own any yellow polishes. So, I felt the need to get this one. I really like the color, and the finish. Two coats were applied.  I didn’t even need a topcoat, because the finish of the nail polish appeared shiny. I didn’t experience any chipping, until the second week. Lets just say, I’ll be adding more colors from this collection.


What yellow nail polishes do you own?

Pink Glitter Makeup Look


I had a long and hectic weekend, but it was worth the headache. My family and I have been debating on a vacation location for weeks now. We always take family vacations together, for as long I can remember. I just hope we come to a decision soon, because I’m past due for a vacation.

In addition, I went shopping with my sister, and nephew. And if you follow me on Twitter, you know I tweeted about the new makeup goodies, I purchased this past weekend. I just had to use up my Christmas & birthday gift card lol. On the other hand, my makeup collection is expanding by the week. I’ve been trying to reorganize my entire makeup collection, and I found some products that I should be using more often, due to the expiration date coming to an end. So, I wanted to do a final look using this glitter, before it goes away forever. This is what I came up with. All the products I used are listed below.
