New boots for fall & winter

Fall is here and Winter is right around the corner, I have wanted a pair of gorgeous and kick ass riding boots since the style came out in stores. Today I went on a mission to find the perfect wide calf black riding boot, now if you are a wide calf girl you know how frustrating it is to shop for boots (more like a really big pain in the ass.) I googled my life away =) and found the perfect pair (refer to the picture below), I believe these fit up to 17" inches in width and they were $25.00 (SAY WHAT) they have 30% off all boots on this awesome website. Definetly check it out ladies, they have some gorgeous boot styles.

Next up the brown ones!!!!!

Nailpolish I'm Loving

Im guess I can start doing some nailpolish posts, I've really been loving painting my nails again and I recentely purchased some ELF polish for the first time. These nailpolishes are $1.00 each =) and boy are they good for the price...nothing close to OPI but not bad at all, good pigmentation and pretty good staying power, check out the pics below:

Overview - Maybelline Dream Products

Ok lovelies =) I have a wholeeeeeeeeeee overview of some Maybelline Dream products for all of you, I thought it might be easier to just group them all and I can give you guys my opinions on more products at a time. Yayyy!

So let's get on with my actual opinion of there items:

Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation

I must say that I really enjoy this compact foundation, now I'm not a big drugstore foundation buyer I usually end up buying department store foundations. This foundation really surprised me and is a staple in my make-up kit now, I love the smooth consistency of the product and the fact that the coverage is medium to full. Just be carefull and don't apply too much because it could look cakey (Just sayinn!) It dries not completely matte nor satin but just the perfect amount of both and for $8.00, heyyy gimme some more =)


Dream Mousse Concealer

The Concealer is my favorite product from the bunch, it is so light and airy but man can it cover. I have a lot of acne scars and this concealer covered them really well without applying too much product, I also used this puppy under my eyes and I didn't even need to set it with powder. It dries to a matte finish and a little products goes a really long way. My top pick and I definetely recommend this to ANYONE =) (hmmm love!)

Dream Mousse Blush - Peach Satin

Dream mousse blush is a very nice cream blush (one of the best I have tried as far as application) the colour is subtle but beautiful and the mousse consistency is what makes it glow. I have tried more pigmented cream blushes like the NYX ones, but this cream blush holds it's own. This particular colour is perfect for Light to Medium skintones, me falling somewhere in between, but it gives a touch of shimmer and peachyness (that's a word right?) to your cheeks and it stays put all day.

Dream Matte Powder

Last but not least is the setting powder in this category, It is a very good setting powder giving you a small amount of coverage without adding too much product on. It is very matte and has decent staying powder but I tend to use it more with lighter coverage foundations rather then full coverage ones. If you have oily skin this is a good product to try to keep your skin looking matte throughout the day!

Different Make-up looks I loveee

I haven't posted some make-up looks in a little while and i always take pictures of different ones I do everything & forget to post them as always, I'll put them all together into this one blogpost, I've been having so much fun with different make-up techniques and color combinations, I love make-up so much  . . .it really is my life and I put so much passion into it ( I loOooOove it) check out some of the looks below, also I'm filming a make-up tutorial tomorrow as well and hopefully it will be up on my Youtube channel very soon. Have a goodnight everyone!!!

This look is awesome, I love the sharp outer edge & as soon as I stepped outside everyone was complimenting this look, I think purple is a great color to play with, one of my favorite looks.

I recreated this look from another youtube guru but toned it down for work and I'm in LOVE with it, it's so soft but the brown in the crease really warms up the look alot. It's one of my faves right now!

I wore this look today, I love to wear a neutral eye but spice it up with a darker color in the outer V from time to time, you can never go wrong with a look like this!
