New Milani Eye Tech & Infinite Liquid Liners

::A few days ago while on my lunch break, I decided to go in CVS to see what new beauty items or beauty deals that they had going on. While looking at the Milani section, I came across these new liquid liners, so I decided to take a few pics for my sometimes abandoned blog. =p

::The Milani Eye Tech Liquid Liners comes in about 6 colors I believe and they have the felt pen type of application tip.

::The Milani Infinite Liquid Liners comes in about 6 colors as well (these were they only 3 that CVS had left) and this liner has more of a brush applicator. Since I'm a fan of brush applicators for a liquid liner, I may go back to CVS to purchase a few.

::For those that have tried these, what are thoughts of these liners?

Attack of The Falsies...Eye Lash Haul

::I went into "Wally World" on Friday evening with my sis and decided to take a look at there 75% off Halloween stuff. Well to my surprise, I seen a box of falsies along with some other stuff and I grabbed 8 pairs. These false lashes are by Salon Perfect and the price of these babies were originally $3.00 with a 75% off price tag so they came to about $.75 a piece! Anyone that knows me, knows that I'm a sucker for a good deal or a good sale and I get some kind of high from it..Lol!

::I would have gotten more, but my sister scouped 5 pairs for herself and she is in the process of learning how to apply false lashes so these $.75 babies are perfect for her to practice with.

::Sorry that the quality of this pic is poor, I'm blaming it all on my BlackBerry =p hehe

::The top pic shows all of the lashes that I purchased and the bottom pic displays the four different styles that I picked.

::Has anyone else came across these falsies from there local Walmart? If so, How many pairs did you get?

::Hey Bloggerella's! I wore this look on Saturday while I was out *window* shopping with the fam. I don't normally like to wear a lot of neutral makeup looks because I always feel as if my look is missing something, so I created a neutral look and made it pop with royal blue.

The New Me...I did the Big Chop!

::Aaaaahh the sweet smell of liberation! I did it, I finally did it! I did the big chop on Tuesday, October 27th, and it feels damn good to get rid of my relaxed ends. Though my hair wasn't super long or anything, but it felt as if it was weighing me down or in the way of things. I made up in my mind that this is it, and I just couldn't deal with the hassle of managing two hair textures. I grabbed a pair of scissors and a wide tooth comb and I began cutting it, then my youngest nephew cut off a big chunk, and my sister cut the majority of it. family got in on the fun of cutting off my tresses! When my sister cut the very last piece, I felt like a free bird!

::I know many people save there hair as a keepsake after they cut it, but I looked at my chopped off hair as it layed limp and lifeless in the trash and I didn't even mourn the loss. All I could think of is this is the death of my relaxed hair that I've had since I was 10 years old, and the birth of my new journey of napturality!

::I'm at work rocking my twa and posing when my ace should be working and *eh hem..cough * emailing my friends. =p

::SOoooo this initially wasn't going to be a LOTD post, but I do have on a little bit makeup in this pic and as you can see...its VERY subtle and I was definitely being a minimalist. I was running late for work, so I think I achieved this look in barely five minutes! lol

Okay this is what I slapped on...Face: Monistat/Primer, Revlon Color Stay Foundation in #400 Caramel (combo/oily version), & MAC MSFN in Dark
Eyes: MAC Powerpoint Eyeliner in Engraved & Maybelline Colossal Lash Mascara in Glam Black
Cheeks: Nada
Eyebrows: Eek! Didn't have time to do them!
Lips: MAC Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks

::Here is another pic of my bowling ball head! It feels great to just wake up in the morning and not have to worry about trying to prevent my hair from getting wet in the shower. I just put some Cantu Leave-In Conditioner and Coconut Oil in my hair...rubbed my hands back and forth and walaa!
::I read so much about the different hair types and I just can't seem to figure out what type my hair falls under. I'm thinking on the lines 3b/3c *sigh* I'm so unsure so If anyone can give me some insight..I would greatly appreciate it! :)

1 Year Blog-a-Versary & First Fall 2009 LOTD

::Heyyyyyyyyyy blog world! It's been a long time! I haven't posted due to real life situations, time, and pure laziness. I can't believe it's been almost year since I began this blog and I honestly didn't believe that I would even get this far with it because in all honesty, I'm sort of notorious for starting things and not finishing them. Hmmm maybe I broke the cycle. Well all in all here's my latest post to celebrate my bloggaversary.

::Okay, lately I've had this fascination with bold lips. I have always admired a bold lip, but at times been too afraid to wear them, but when I wore this look, I guess you can say I was feeling a bit sultry and daring. hehe

Geez my face is shining like new money! Ha

Face: Foundation from my RCMA Pallette (color?), MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Natural (Dark), MAC Translucent Powder, Nabi Blush in Hot Rose

Eyes: UDPP, MAC Girlish Romp e/s quad (white portion), MAC e/s in GoldMine, MAC e/s in Mulch, MAC e/s in Embark, 7o e/s pallette in a brownish-red color, Milani e/s in Almondine & Red Cherry Lashes in #600 (my new faves)

Eyes: Top Lid Loreal Cream Liner in black & Water line Coastal Scents Cream Liner in White

Lips: MAC Lip Liner in Currant, NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Hera & NYX Lipgloss in Burgandy

As Wendy Williams would say: HOW YOU DOIN?

::I don't normally post about my hair, but I figured that I would add an addition about my
oodle-y, doodle-y, poodle-y hair. I'm in transition from relaxed to natural hair and I've been transitioning for 2 months now. *sigh* I'm so ready to cut this mop but I'm so afraid of the outcome, but I'm so ready to feel liberated. Any natural nubians with any insight or word of advice...I'm all for it so lay it on me!

L.A. Girls Nail Look

::Well Alright! Besides makeup I have another LOVE and it's bright colored nail polish. This is only my second nail post, but I this color was hot so I had to post it!

:;During my journey at the beauty supply store yesterday, I decided to take a look at there nail polish and I came across this rack of *L.A GIRL DISCO BRITES in TURNTABLES* this teal green caught my eye and for $1.99 why not give a try?!

::I put this polish on around 8:00 P.M yesterday and it is around 9:10 A.M now (eastern time) and it has NOT chipped at all! Normally with the cheapy beauty supply nail polish it would have chipped by now and I would have had to reapply it, but not this polish. I think I'm going to make a trip there today and buy a few more.
