ELF cosmetics

Hey girls and boys....

So, I know that you've at least heard talk of ELF cosmetics. Eyes Lips and Face. Well...I was a bit skeptical...because 80% of their cosmetics are $1.00!!! Imagine. Yeah, so...again, I'm thinking dollar cosmetics equal dollar store results....NOT!!!
I did a couple of reviews on their products. Some are fantastic!!! Some, not so much...but then again, that goes for everything...doesn't it??? I've tired some MAC that I didn't care for...AT ALL....(eehheemmm...eye primer).
ELF website

All I'm saying is give it a go. What will you be out of?? $1.00???? LOL...They are having a sale right now, on their mineral products (I did my review on these, check them out) and I would sooooo recommend you pick up a couple of them, along with the mineral eyeshadow primer. If you love UDPP, you will certainly love this...and especially for $3 with 40% off!!!!

Here's my review on YouTube.
Check it out, lemme know what you think!!!

Sole Mates!!

Hi there boys and girls!!

In case you hadn't noticed, I, Dyna, am a complete and total shoe-whore. That's right. My name is Dyna and I'm a shoe-hoe!! I love them!!! Specifically, my stilettos!!! What's sexier than a pair of skinny heels with jeans, a skirt, a dress, NOTHING!!! LOL...

A problem that I found myself having is that I would always manage to stride myself right into cracks in the sidewalk...scuffing my lovelies, not cool. Take a look at what I found online...
They are called Sole Mates, and they go right over your heels to keep them from scuffing, and also, to give you a bit more balance. After all, one too many martinis, and those stilettos feel like toothpicks!! Check em out and lemme know how they work for you.


By the way, did I tell you that Steve Madden is having a huge sale??? Just in time for the Sole Mates.

Kissable Couture Lipgloss Review..

Honesty, Eric and Exposed color swatches.

I ordered lipgloss from a new

I picked up 4 of them... the packaging is so pretty..I purchased Honesty,First Lady,Exposed and Eric.

I will give my most honest opinion.
1. I'm really glad I received a discount on the purchase (I received a 40% discount at the time of purchase)
2. Not a high shine gloss
3. It smells good
4. the packaging..It's a pretty black box with silver writing and a pretty black ribbon
5. I've had drugstore brands that had a longer staying power
6. I had to re-apply more frequently than I have with others.
7. Would I purchase again? To mix with another clear gloss to give it the staying power.
the swatches are above ( I am an HD 177 foundation wearer/ MAC NC 45)

Hey there Jolies!!!

Robin and I have been so busy with trying to manage our budgets and deal with the kiddies that we've been neglectful to our dames and homs (I think that's how you spell men in french...tee hee). So, this blog is chock full of goodies to hopefully make up for our lack of focus...

1) Lip Tars by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (how fitting is that name?!?!)

We found this fabulous lip gloss thanks to Queen of Blending ( It may not look like much, but the pigments are to die for!!! OMG, it's ordered, we will be giving our own feedback and a tute on this one soon. Check them out on

They are having a wonderful sale on soooo many items, and there are sooo many fantastic freebies to be had. Check out their Beauty Bonuses Page to find the latest promo codes. My mom also wanted me to mention the $22 Sephora Beauty Palette that she's in love with...

I know a lot of people shop, but is pretty hot too. I usually flip flop between the two. Today, in honour of Earth Day (make sure you plant a tree, or do some extra recycling), they are offering an additional 22% off. Check out this oversized bath towl and mat set originally over $100!!! What better for those beauty mishaps or cleanups???

In honour of Earth Day (did you plant your tree yet), Kiehl's is having a benefit auction via ebay for some fantastic items donated by them and some stars (Erykah Badu...Adrian Greinier). Check it out and save your planet!!! Kiehl's Auction

6) The shoe spot
Make sure you do random drive-bys or click-bys to this site, they always have designer shoe sales, but they only last a day or so. Today, Bronx Shoes are on sale for $16.95!!!

Yes, I said it...hurry up while your size is still available!!

7) MAC of course
What would a blog be without Makeup Artist Cosmetics??? The have quite a few new campaigns going on. The most recent is A Rose Romance. Lots of fantastic shades to whisk you away to a secret rondesvous!! LOL...

A little X-rated...

Alright girls and boys...

I am a member of deals and steals on, and someone posted this wonderful site.

They have eye glasses starteing at $8.00! They offer UV protection, anti-scratch coating, and lens edge polishing and beveling for FREE!! You can get bifocals, color tinting, and photochromatic (dark outside and clear inside).

Lacura skincare system

Hi girls...and boys!!

It's been a moment many many apologies!!!! We've been busy!!! Here's the latest!!
Are you looking for an inexpensive skincare line? Lacura!!!

It's apparently all the rave in Europe, and finally here.

I'm a huge fan of Kiehl's Ultra facial moisturizing lotion. Truth be told, it's the only face lotion that I've used for the last year. I paid $60 for the large size...and it's honestly lasted me this long. I only use about a dime size daily, and it's about half gone. LOVE it!!! But still, figured I'd give this a try. I've been using the whole line since the weekend and love it. I have very senstive skin, and have not had a blemish pop up yet!! That alone is enough for the thusfar. My skin has had a phenominal glow about it, and I'm very happy. I'm going to give it a go for about 30 days. Here's what I'm using:

- Hydrating facial cleanser
- Hydrating facial toner
- Hydracomplete face lotion
- 10Q night cream
- 10Q restorative cream
- Moisturising eye cream
- Exfoliating peel gel (love it)
- Ultra firming mask

The whole line cost me only $40!!!!!! Imagine!!! I switch up the daily creams and also use the peel and the firming mask every two days. I'll keep you posted and of course put up pictures!!!

Enjoy my wait, the website...because you can only get this at your local Aldi!!! Cut and paste this into your browser:

Hey girls...and boys. The answer to the question is Jesse's Girl.

No, it's not brand new, but it is to some. Robin picked up a couple of the Sparkling Eye Dusts from her local drug store a couple of months ago. She was completely blown away...she actually compared them to MAC's pigments. Can you imagine? Me either. One of her earlier looks was actually done with Jesse's Girl. Check out the post entitled " ". is their product line-up for eyes:

Eye Dust - 21 shades available. Were alone for light coverage, or add water or mixing medium for more dramatic coloring!!

Eye Lites - 15 shades of liquid shadow availible in glitter and creme formulas.

Single Pan Shadows - 5 sumptuous colors availble.

Sooo...we just placed a big order for most of the items above. Come back and check for some looks. We're working on a retail agreement with Jesse's Girl, so look for her on our ebay page!!!
