August Beauties

I'm so grateful to have a husband who UNDERSTANDS my love for collecting makeup! Here are just a few 'beauties' that I've added to my collection within the last month :)
Urban Decay's Naked Palette, i love that it's basically neutrals. Fans went crazy over this, its always soldout online!
 I purchased the Book of Shadows II last year & have been sold on Urban Decay since. It's pretty pricey so I never buy any separates or individual products. (one eyeshadow= $17!) Instead I wait for their palettes to come out, which are ALWAYS awesome & never a disappointment. The packaging has cool designs centered around a theme & not only do you get a great selection/variety of colors, but also an eyeshadow primer and eyeliner pencil. My palette was around $44, kind of alot but you definitely get more for your money with palettes! I can't wait for their limited edition I <3 NY!
It's coming out soon
 So James loves his TV & PS3, I on the other hand LOVE my YouTube makeup & hair tutorials. Its my excuse for a cheaper version of beauty school that I'll never put time/money towards officially. So I watch my Beauty 'Self-Taught' Guru's who I think know more tricks of the trade than most professionals. Anyways I was watching my favorite DulceCandy87 & she introduced a drugstore makeup brand from the UK! I was able to get my hands on some, woohoo. Now Long's needs to stock their shelves with these, the UK knows what's up!

The 'Original' Palette: earthy tones & neautrals
The 'Sunset' Palette: I needed some color variety in my collection
The 'Circus' Palette: BRIGHT colors!! It's also limited edition

 I needed a few little additions here n' there after running out of lipstick & glosses from Night Show. I don't wear a lot of lip products (the most was chap stick while @ BYU Provo) so I didn't want to spend a lot of money on restocking my supply. Anyone in need of CHEAP but GREAT QUALITY makeup/brushes should invest in E.L.F. Products (Eyes.Lips.Face. Cosmetics):
Everything is literally ONLY a DOLLAR!
Ever Girl should try NYX cosmetics, of course they're affordable! I enjoy their Jumbo Pencils & have finally completed my set. You can use them as eyeliners, eye shadows, or as a base to make your eye shadows pop! James even had a use for them last Halloween (little did i know) as his Zombie makeup!
My fave's & most used are: Black Bean & Milk

I also wanted to try their primer in Skin Tone & Pearl
If you're living in the Laie, HI area you may know that Conjunctivitis or for you mokes Pinkeye has been going around! Blah! Its hit my family and also a lot of girls at work. ONE of whom asked to use my pencil eyeliner & the angel in me GAVE IT TO HER!!! Anyways I went straight to Long's after and got another pencil because I am definitely not taking any risks in catching pinkeye. I love this pencil, its by L'oreal: Liquid Eye pencil. It's the blackest & smoothest pencil I've ever owned. It's also said to be the dupe for MAC's Smolder Eye Kohl: (Its on sale now@ Long's Kaneohe)


  1. Dang girl, now that is a lot of makeup! Maybe you should start charging for doing weddings;)

  2. Can you please ask your husband to convince my husband that a passion for makeup and collecting it is legit? I LOVE makeup. Unfortunately for me, I don't know many techniques on how to put it on, because I'm such a boy sometimes. Thank goodness for youtube and beauty tutorials!

  3. Ohhh I love it! Your blog is cute! Man it makes me miss Hawaii so much reading it!!! Our blog is www.chelsandmike.blogspot.com if you're ever interested! Take care and hope that you're loving married life! It's the best!
