MAC Double Donation Day With Any Viva Glam Purchase

I love Viva Glam products and love them even more for this reason.  If you've been wanting to try something from the line today is a great day to do it! They are going to double the donation to their AIDS foundation.  If you didn't know, any purchase from MAC's Viva Glam line goes directly to their AIDS foundation.  It really is a great program.

My recommendations would be the Viva Glam V (5) lipstick and lipglass and the Viva Glam VI (6) lipglasss, which are my favorites.  But Viva Glam Nikki is great for a bright pink lip!

Be sure to let me know if you pick up anything.

L'oreal To Buy Urban Decay

I was just reading about L'oreal buying Urban Decay.  My only thought on this is whether or not they will continue to remain crueltly free.  Most L'oreal brands are sold in China where animal testing is the law.  Just my thoughts.  I'm interested to see how this will play out.

What are your thoughts on this??

*UPDATE* Urban Decay has issued a statement saying that they will remain crueltly free. =)

Maybelline Quad in Emerald Smokes

This has to be one of my favorite eye shadow quads for fall.  Don't get me wrong I LOVE my neutrals and wear them almost every day but this is a beautiful inexpensive pop of color for fall.  These greens just speak to me on cloudy dreary days.  

The smokiness of these colors make this quad so fun.  Pair these shadows with either a nude or berry lip and you can take it from day to night. 

Have you tried this quad?

L'OREAL Infallible Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald

How have I not owned one of these L'OREAL Infallible eye shadows before now.  It is so creamy and buttery, while having amazing color pay off.  I am loving this color for fall.  The vibrant emerald color with the golden shimmer is just gorgeous.  

I am loving these L'OREAL eye shadows and can not wait to add more to my collection.  What shades do you have? Any recommendations?

L'oreal Youth Code Day/Night Lotion Review

I think this is a pretty good product.  The consistency is very nice, it has a light but pleasant smell, and absorbs into the skin beautifully.  The one down side to it being both a day and a night cream is that there is no spf in it. You would have to wear an additional sunscreen during the day if you wanted sun protection.  On the other hand, if you have an irritation to some sunscreens or need a moisturizer with out any due to photographs then this is great!

I like that you can use it for day or night.  It makes it more affordable that way.  This actually came attached to a face wash in a set I found at Target.  When I purchased it , the set was clearanced for only $10! I believe the lotion itself  normally retails for $20 at Walmart or Target and is probably a few dollars more at your local drug store. 

Overall, I think it's a  great product with only one downfall.

This is just my opinion.  I would love to know if you've used this product and what you thought of it.

NOTD: Wet n Wild in Grape Vine

After several comments on my nail color that I was wearing in my video (you can watch it here) yesterday, I decided to do a NOTD post. 

This color is so pretty! I think it's a perfect berry color for going into Fall.  As with all Wet n Wild Megalast polishes the formula is amazing and the application was so smooth.  I love the brush it makes applying it that much easier!

If you haven't tried this brand, I definitely recommend it!
