Princess Jasmine..."Your Only In Trouble If You Get Caught"

How are all my lovelies doing?!! Hopefully all of you are doing wonderful!! Well as promised if you follow me on Instagram I assured you guys that I would do
swatches on this beautiful palette and share it with all of you :). Just to let my followers know a little fact about me, I am a huge DISNEY FAN!!! When I say huge.... I mean HUGEEEE!!! Anything Disney I absolutely love and am obsessed with so it only made sense for me to purchase this exquisite piece of eyecandy. When I recieved the email from
 Sephora that this was launching as an online exclusive I knew that I had to get my hands on it, not to mention that Princess Jasmine is one of my all-time favorite
princesses to date!! Where to even begin when it comes to this palette?!! Let's talk about the packaging Ladies, Is it not just an absolute Dream!! Here are couple of snapshots of the cover in which the eyeshadows are held in :)

 The packaging is so intricate and has so many details and totally fits in with the theme Arabian Nights. The box is so colorful and so vibrant and really it's just simply

Honestly I can just sit and gaze at the packaging for a little bit because the packaging is so gorgeous, totally Disney approved in my book. Now let's
get to the really good stuff...Eyeshadows!!

 The pictures of these beauties just simply speak for themselves, they are truely just gorgeous and rich colors. They weren't kidding when it says in the description about how the colors match the movie, meaning they have so much life and brillance to them. Most of the eyeshadows are however shimmers and metallics, there is maybe one or two colors that are actually matte but nevertheless they are GORGEOUS. The blush and
the bronzer are also have some shimmer in them. I personally like my bronzers to be matte but the bronzer in this palette would make a beautiful eyeshadow color it
just all depends on your preference. Here are the Swatches I did on my skin, I apologize in advance for the paleness of my skin color, so sorry dolls.

(Quick Note: The Only reason why you cannot see the Ali Ababwa Swatch in the pictures above is because it is a Vanilla shade and is really light and well naturally it doesn't show up on my skin, sorry dolls but I can assure you that its a beautiful matte color.)

 The texture on these are not chalky at all as so many claimed that the Cinderella Storylook Palette was, but I personally couldn't say because this is my first storylook palette that I own. I can tell you though that I have no complaints about the texture, on the contrary I am absolutely in love with all of it!! The pigmentation on this palette is incredible!!! Great color payoff in my book ladies. They are all definitely very very pigmented, on a scale of
1 to 10 I would give this palette a solid 9 only reason being is because I am a matte eyeshadow lover but other than that minor detail I love it!!Here is some more snapshots of the palette :). 

Besides for them being so gorgeous, they are bright, fun, and exciting!! I have to say from them being from the Sephora brand, the quality of these are amazing and believe me I'm not just saying that just to say it. The swatches and pictures really do speak for themselves! I most definitely would recommend this beauty to anyone that loves makeup or is an
enthusiast. It is such a precious collecters item, you will not be disappointed loves. It is a little pricey but for a Disney lover there is no price lol. I can't wait to actually play and do some looks with this palette so be on the lookout dolls!! Hopefully this review has been helpful until next time loves. Stay Fancy!

The Long Awaited M*A*C Lazy Sunday :)

Hello my lovelies!!! Finally another blog entry and I'm so sorry for the wait :( I've been so busy as of late but I finally feel like I'm back on track. Well the title I gave this post is really self explanatory, If you don't know.....I have a total obsession with Nudes and Pinks when it comes to Lip Colour, it's more of a problem really and that's to say the least. Here is a swatch on my lips of the colour M*A*C's Lazy Sunday, isn't it just GORGEOUS!!
Where to even start dolls!!! It all started when I first started to see this Lip Colour on IG  where I absolutely fell in Loveee with it and became obsessed in hunting it down. It took me a good two months to track it down considering that this item was limited edition and was no longer sold by M*A*C. I wanted to see for myself if all the swatches I've seen rang true and that I was not hallucinating on how beautiful I thought this color was in those pictures. And Ladies and Gentlemen.....I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!!! I truly do not have any complaints at all, it is such a perfect baby pink color that I can't even stand it, it is so GORG! It's a perfect layering lippie, and also works as a great cheek color; definitely an item that's worth having in your makeup collection or for any makeup lover to own.  The smell of it is lovely, smells like BubbleGum and the texture is just so creamy and it actually feels moisturizing to the lips which is a total plus for me. Here are some pictures of it on my lips with flash and without.


In the pictures I only have the actual Lip Colour on, there is no lipliner and  no lip primer underneath. I don't know about what are your thoughts on it from just seeing it but to me it gives me that perfect pouty look and just makes the lips look kissable and so so sexy!! I can only imagine when I start playing with different lippies to go with it that I'll probably fall in love with it even more!! Sorry guys if it seems that I sound like a total Lipstick Junkie and the truth is..... I'm totally guilty of it!!! Next pictures coming up are some other swatches I've done  of this beauty. It might look a little bit sheer in the picture and I apologize but it was so hard trying to capture and keep the integrity of the this color through the lens, seriously the pictures do not give it any justice!! I need differently lighting for sure dolls!

I really can't say anything bad about this beauty. I would certainly recommend it to you if you are a lover of pink lippies. I totally forgot to mention that a plus to this product is that it's a buildable lippie meaning that you can make as bright as you want it or if you want a more sheer/subtle look then just apply one layer of it on your lips. If you can get your hands on it ladies you will not be disappointed that's for sure!! Happy Hunting My Beauties and remember Always Stay Fancy!! Hope this entry has been helpful, until next time my loves!

Cheap Makeup Vs. High-End Makeup....Oh the Pressure?!!!




How are my dolls doing?! Hopefully all are doing fabulous! :) Today's Topic.....Makeup :) Let me start off by saying that I'm a proud owner of both high-end and cheap cosmetic brands; and I personally favor both the same. When I first got into makeup I was like many of you watching tutorials on Youtube and felt that if I didn't own high-end products (including makeup tools) that I couldn't simply achieve those looks in the videos. In my case, all I saw were MAC Cosmetics and MAC brushes in those tutorials, so naturally I felt the pressure to own those particular products. At the time, I just simply couldn't afford it and because of that I kinda felt inferior and simply to put it lightly....I felt like a LOSER! <---Not a great feeling.

 Over time I started to build my makeup collection and learned that there's nothing wrong with owning "affordable makeup". I will say that I've came across personalities (people) that only favor "high-end" products and even made it perfectly clear that they would never purchase low-end makeup, and to me that saddens me. I don't know about you guys but to me that's the WRONG mentality! Whether you're an aspiring makeup artist or a shouldn't down others and make them feel inferior just because they can't afford "high-end". I applaud all those pros that keep it real and are honest and use both high-end and cheap makeup and are not afraid to admit it. High-end or the end of the day it's still makeup, the only thing is that the quality is different; Agreed?. If you claim that you're a so called "skilled" makeup artist than you can use any kind of product to your advantage regardless of the price, in my opinion. Over time I've also learned that some products of the cheap makeup brands even out-shine some of the high-end ones and that's the truth my beauties!

 The point I'm trying to get at's not the product that makes you but the SKILL that you have to apply makeup period. So dolls it's okay to work with what you got and be proud of it; there is nothing to be ashamed of. CONFIDENCE is key Ladies and Gentleman. I hope this entry gave you some type of insight on how to look at beauty products differently and in a more positive light :). Let me know what you guys think about this entry and what are your thoughts when it comes to owning high-end or cheap makeup or both. Till next time my lovelies! Have a Fab Day!

Nails-On-Go? Yes Please!!

Welcome to my blog my fellow beauties and fashionistas!! I'm kinda new to this whole blogging world so please forgive me for any errors and please feel free to give me any suggestions. Feedback is always welcome here :) If you haven't read the description in my profile yet basically to just keep it brief and straight to the point....I'm a Fashion/Makeup Junkie! Anything that has to do with beauty or fashion I'm there. :) But I'm not going to make this blog entry all about me, that's a whole different story and a blog entry itself lol. By all means read my description in my profile if you want to learn a little bit about me :). Anyway enough about me lets get to the topic I wanted to touch upon in this entry....You guessed it....... Nail Strips!!


I know I'm not the only woman on the planet that is always on-the-go and is always looking for easy or fast beauty fixes; In this case.....our nails Ladies! :) Me, personally, I don't always have time to go the nail salon to go get a mani or pedi. And for many of us, time is not always on our side; we all have busy lives and I'm sure the majority of us women can agree to this. So for the time being, in my opinion, these beauties are the solution. These nail strips are my lifesavers! Literally! You just simply apply the strip that fits the nail best and viola!! No drying time! Just get up and go!! What a beauty right?!

Now grant it that there are several different brands out there and not all of them have the exact same result. What do I mean?? Well it's simple really, it might come down to how long they might last (the dealbreaker for many) or if the application process is more difficult or maybe something as simple as the smell or scent of the strip. Everyone has their own preference. Whichever the case may be, the bottom-line is not every nailstrip brand is going to give you the same experience. For example, the Sally Hansen strips last way longer then the Revlon ones, in my opinion.




Nevertheless, whoever came up with this concept was brilliant and a genius in my book. Some women hate them and some love them; I personally love them for their convenience. Don't get me wrong, I'm a true nail polish lover and always will be but when there's absolutely no time I stick with these babies! :) The following snap shots are from having them on for six days. :)

Let me know what are your thoughts on these, I would love to hear from you guys! :) I'm sorry if this blog entry seems so short and straight to the point; I am such a newbie guys :) Thanks to those who took the time to read or post a comment! And always remember Ladies to always stay Fancy! Have a fabulous day! Until next time. :)
