Anastasia Beverly Hills gloss

Hey all.  I just did a video on these glosses but I thought I would provide you guys the pics that I took after using the glosses.

Am I the only person that is almost off of the matte lipstick train? It’s not like I’ve tried tons but the ones that I have tried have been drying.  I know that this is the nature of the beast (matte = dry) but still, my lips are tired.

I can’t seem to find a matte that doesn’t eventually dry my lips out and I’m assuming that I never will.  I can’t help but think “why am I paying a lot of money to dry my lips out beyond recognition?”

Any who, I went back into my happy drawer and found this set of mini glosses from the ABH Fall Collection that I bought a few months ago.  I always loved the feel and colors and was just wearing them sparingly.

I decided to give my lips some much needed TLC and switch back to glosses for a minute.  Why?, because it’s cold and I just want another layer covering my lips to combat the elements.  I live in Atlanta but it’s still cold in the mornings and after the sun goes down. I just feel like a gloss or creme lipstick is better for your lips in the cold because you aren’t drying them out twice: once from the lippie and second from the weather. Just my opinion.

For all of my Sephora Beauty Insiders and VIBs, the ABH glosses can be purchased at Sephora: http://www.sephora.com/lip-gloss-P404830?skuId=1791730&icid2=products%20grid:p404830http://www.sephora.com/lip-gloss-P404830?skuId=1791730&icid2=products%20grid:p404830

You can still purchase the kit on the ABH website: http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/mini-lip-gloss-set—fall/ABH01-18302.html?cgid=makeup-lips#start=3&cgid=makeup-lips

So here are pictures of me wearing each gloss.  I had worn all except Amber and Carla. I love the creamy consistency.  They all went on smoothly and evenly except Amber, which was the lightest so I wasn’t surprised. Have you worn these? What are your thoughts, fav colors?

Carla – this one really surprised me. I had been scared of this because it was red but it’s a very cool red. I love it.

I’ve been duped . . . Part 2

You know by following me that I posted a video previously where I was duped on some super expensive fragrances: Flowerbomb and Spicebomb.  I had purchased these fragrances from Scent City Perfumery and when I got them, the codes inside the box had been removed.  The fragrances also didn’t smell the same as the originals which were acquired previously through Scentbird.  I told everyone in that video that I would do another video because I had also purchased 2 Juicy Couture fragrances that I was now unsure of their authenticity.

So we fast forward to now and I have bought the authentic scents from Luxury Scent Box (I’m a subscriber).  I bought Viva La Juicy and Viva La Juicy Noir and compared the scents.  Check out the video to see the results of what happened next:

BUYER BEWARE: How I got duped by a perfume company and how I got my money back

Well most of you know by now that I LOVE perfume.  Well, I fell for a company that claimed that they sold legitimate fragrances for up to 80% off.  I know, you’re thinking “you fell for that?”.  Yes, I did.  I got burned but I also got vindication.

Check out my video to see what happened:

Lilly Lashes

I am a HUGE Shah’s of Sunset fan.  I love all of the opulence and glamour of the stars of this show.  The men are beautiful and the women are breathtaking.  Their wardrobe and make up are always flawless.  One of the break out stars was Lilly Ghalichi.  Some people called her “Persian Barbie” because she looked like a living doll.  Everything about Lilly was over-the-top from her teeny tiny waist, to her hair, to her makeup and to her nails.

She came out with an eyelash line that is coveted by a large following of celebs and eyelash lovers across the globe.  Her lash line contains a Luxury Collection and 3-D Mink lashes and they ship WORLDWIDE!!!!

I decided to try her lashes during a huge sale last month.   I bought Milan and LA for $8.99 each.  Shipping was $5.99 so my total was $23.97 which is totally a score for celebrity lashes.

Her packaging is the bomb dot com.  I know some people think that packaging is bulky but I love it.  I hold it up there with collecting perfume bottles and displaying them.  The one thing I noticed immediately is that her lashes are SOOOOO lightweight. I’m talking featherweight.  I dropped one off of the tweezers twice because it was so light.  This translates into a very comfortable lash that you don’t even realize you are wearing.

LA is a very natural looking lash.  I wanted something I could wear to work. Here is LA:

Milan gave me a hint of va va voom for the office but was still work appropriate. Here is Milan:

The 2 that I purchased are not currently on the website.  Not sure if it’s because it’s sold out or if that was a clearance sale on those items.

I prefer my lashes to have more of a curled effect instead of flaring out and up.  So I need to get some of her other lashes for that look. I was mainly trying something safe before spending $20 or $30 on lashes. You know I’m a bargain shopper so I will always wait for a sale before purchasing.  She always has sales and has one going on right now.  Use the code “WEEKENDGLAM” to receive 10% (sale ends Sunday).  She is also giving away a free lash applicator was every order.  How cute is that???? It’s pink, I LOVE it!!!!

I have no complaints: shipping was fast and huge variety to choose from.

Here is the information on how you can stay in the know.  Like Lilly says it’s “more than just lashes, they’re a lifestyle.”
