NOTD

Hey all! so just wanted to do a  NOTD. I love seeing all of yours so thought I would share =)
This is one of my absolute favorite colors. I swear whenever I go to my nail polish drawer I always go to this color. I thing bright pinks and reds are my fav choices. I am now trying to venture away from those and try more to see what I like.
This as you can see is Sinful Colors and it is the shade Cream pink. I just love it!! So bright and fun and makes me want summer to hurry up! I live in rainy Washington and although I love it here I am just so dang tired of the rain lately! So I put this on and it cheers me up a bit! =) What colors do you find cheer you up or what are your go to colors? I would love to know, then maybe I will try it out!

Also I would love some feedback...I want to find a good topcoat that also prevents chipping. Having 3 kids and always doing laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning I want to be able to wear my nail polish but to have it last more than 2 days. So if there is one you have tried and LOVED please let me know. Thanks everyone. Have a great day!!
xoxo,
Miranda

Also, if you didn't know Walgreens is have a sale on these for .99cents each! I just actually placed an order for some so I will have those in a haul with swatches when I get them! Click HERE to check it out and see what they have left.

Looky what I finally found!!

Hey all! So I am so excited I finally found the wet n wild trio's I have been looking for forever I swear! I found 2(the top ones) of them at a Winco grocery store which I totally didn't expect, but they had them along with a lot of other wet n wild stuff so I will definitly get some more stuff later from there now that I know its there! The other 2(bottom ones) I found at fred meyer. Which I knew they had them but they were always sold out of the colors I wanted so I guess I got lucky this time! The only thing now is to find the 8 pan palette. I can't find those anywhere which is sad! I really want 2 of them and nowhere around me has them. So hopefully I will get lucky soon and find them somewhere unexpected.

Top left: Sweet as candy & Top right: Walking on Eggshells
Bottom left: Knock on wood & Bottom right: Silent treatment

Some colors are very similar but that's totally fine with me, I know I will get good use out of them all! I know most of you have heard and seen these so I won't do swatches but if you do want me to do them let me know and I will get pics up =)

Another thing I found at fred meyer's while I was out and about was the mega lash clinical serum and mascara.
It says in just 4 weeks, longer, thicker, fuller looking lashes so I'm really hoping it works! I am going to do a review on this so expect that in a month with pictures of every week =)

FOTD!

I have to say I am loving doing the FOTD even if it is only my second time doing it. It gives me a reason to play with makeup and show you all what I come up with. I am in no means a professional and am still learning tricks but I do what suits me for the day =) Since today I am staying home with my kiddo's(its spring break) I decided to go very neutral...almost trying to go for the no makeup look in a way but still want it to be noticed if that makes sense! Hope you all enjoy and a thanks to Steph. She let me know in my GIVEAWAY I am doing now that she would like to see more of the FOTD posts =) Go enter if you haven't yet! It's not a huge one but its something! The big one will be coming when I hopefully reach 100 followers! Anyways I will stop ramblin now and put up some pics.

What I used:
*Tarte Amazonian clay foundation
*Sephora mattifying powder
*Hard candy blush in living doll
*Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion
*Pixi wakeup kit
*Milani liquif'eye eyeliner
*Tarte lights,camer, lashes mascara
*Wet n wild ultimate brow kit
*not pictured is good ole vaseline I used on my lips..they were feeling a bit dry today so that's all I have been using.

Have a wonderful day!

My first Milani Cosmetic's Experience!

Hey all! So a lovely woman named Jenna from Milani cosmetics sent me a little goody bag with different products. I am so excited cause this is my first time trying this brand. I haven't been able to find them in stores around me so I am really excited about this post! First up is just a couple pics of what I got.
This is how it was sent too me.
I open it up and find...
sorry for the lighting...onto more fun pics and what I think.

I got this metallic baked eyeshadow in color Purrr-fect Purple(604)

Thoughts: I really love this color(probably cause I am a sucker for purples!) but its a little harder to get on and get even. You definitly need a good brush for this and go over the eyelid a few times to get an even coat, but when you do the payoff is soooo pretty! Another thing is you definitly need a good primer. I put it on just to test with no primer and it creased and faded a little to easily. I do have oily eyelids so that doesn't help but wanted to see how it did with no primer.




This is the Liquif'eye metallic eye liner in color Brown (05)

Thoughts: Oh my word! I love this eyeliner! It goes on so smoothly and has great color payoff. It stays put too! (The swatch on my hand I had to scrub off) I just couldn't believe how easy and effortless it went on. I will definitly get more of these especially a black one. Definitly a top fav in eyeliners for me now.





Baked blush in color Rose D'Oro

Thoughts: Wow, what a great blush. It is such a pretty peachy pink shade that has gold tones baked into it. This will last me awhile because a little definitly goes a long way. Very pretty.









Here is a pic so hopefully you can see the gold in it.













Lip Flash full coverage shimmer gloss pencil in color In a flash(07)                                                          

Thoughts:It is very pretty but honestly I probably      won't wear this hardly at all. Its so shimmery and      bright and I am just so used to light pinks and nude   colors that this is way out of the box for me! Maybe for a fun party night or something but definitly not     for regular use for me.                                             


HD Advanced lip color in Classy nude(102)
It says it is light to medium coverage that hydrates and moisturizes.

Thoughts: I wasn't even aware of this product till now and I love it. It goes on really nice has buildable color and feels great on my lips. It has a nice kinda fruity smell too it and its not sticky at all. I am really pleased with this I think this, the blush and the eyeliner I will keep in stock in my makeup drawer!











Milani Nail Polish in color Purple Gleam
It says one coat glitter

Thoughts: I really like the color(duh, its purple! haha) but as far as the one coat glitter I don't think so. I put 2 coats for the picture because 1 just didn't do it for me its was very thin and spotty. I think it would be pretty on top of a different color polish with some kind of top coat to help the scratchyness of the polish. This just wasn't a favorite of mine, but hey that is ok with me. I love trying different things to find what I like and don't like.










well that's what I got and what I think. I hope you enjoyed this post! What are your favorite Milani products or what are the ones you want to try?


*All products were sent to me for free for review . Company that is mentioned is not paying me for this. All opinions are 100% my own.

Fun Friday Haul

Hey everyone so I had to go to Walmart to get a few things for my house and of course I can NEVER just  stick too my list. One quality my husband wishes I didn't have! haha Here is a pic of What I got:
I have heard really good things about the Not your Mothers line so I got a bunch of it! I'm excited to try them all out and they all smell really good! Another thing I have heard raves about is the Bonnebell Liplites so decided to get 2 of them to try out. I will post swatches below. Also I decided to try Hard Candy skin perfecting primer just to see how it does with my skin. Hopefully it will do great since it's only 8 bucks!! So there it is my Fun Friday Haul!
Strawberry Parfait & Vanilla Swirl
Hope you enjoyed and have a great weekend!
Also, if you would like me to do a review, let me know what you want me to review and I will do a post once I have used it enough to give a good one on it =)
