FOTD 7/21

So on Saturday, I went with my friend Amy to see Static-X and boy did we have fun! There were 4 opening bands that night and each one rocked my socks, two in particular by the names of 9Electric and Davey Suicide. Both of these bands totally rocked the house and had my friend and I thoroughly impressed with their performance and overall stage presence. We got to hang with Ron the 9E singer for a bit after their set and after Static-X's and he is a pretty cool dude I must say. Static-X completely rocked us with an awesome show and when we left the venue it was with huge smiles and good memories. Now that my little show review is done, I shall get on to my look for the show. I had wanted to do something more dramatic, but I didn't have a lot of time to get ready due to going over on my nap and my nieces and nephew coming over for a bit so I went for one of my go to looks and was pretty happy with it despite fudging my liner. On to the pics!

*Note:  My face looks a bit white because I took this right after being done and my setting powder wasn't fully absorbed yet. I have noticed that in pictures unless I let my natural oils come up a bit first that my face looks a bit white when flash is used. :/

Mini Moi haulage!

Moi Minerals has just launched their new website and until the month of July you can get 25% off all purchases! I was very excited to see that now you can earn rewards points for purchases, there is a wishlist and a new Color of the Month program where you get a full size shadow for $1.99. The site looks great and there are some new items to drool over. Speaking of new items, on to the pics of my new pretties!

Left to right: Diego, Mercy and Spank Me

L-R: Bloom, Awakening, Affection, I ♥ Coral, Rosewood, Cheeky

This is a tinted lip balm, I like it but I had to layer it a TON to get any color. My lips are pretty pigmented though, so that might be why.

Summer Loving ingredients 

Aphrodisiac lip gloss: Like all the other glosses I have gotten from Moi, I love this one! Gorgeous color, very pigmented and feels great on.


Look at how bright and fab this color is! This is the first lipstick I have tried from MOI and it will NOT be the last. Love it!

The applicator for Aphrodisiac

The blush samples in their baggies

Such a lovely blue that you can now grab for $1.99!

New labels on the pots! Love them

L-R Don't Tell, Aphrodisiac and Summer Loving

I hope that you all liked this post and also hope that if you have yet to check out Moi you give them a shot. Holly has wonderful service and wonderful products at great prices, you won't be disappointed.

I hope you have a great rest of your day and as always:

P.S. Does anyone know if and how you can re-position pics on Blogger? It drives me nuts when they are all out of whack like this.

BFTE Swatches!

I had not ordered from BFTE in some time and decided to get this past week's COTW which was a new duochrome by the name of Splash. The COTW (color of the week) is a full size eye shadow and 3 samples for $6 that will come out to a flat $10 once shipping is added in. You can either get shadow, foundation or blush as your sample choices, I chose blushes. I also added a limited color called Winter Wonderland to my order, this color had been a part of the Christmas collection that I missed out on.

Top to bottom: Winter Wonderland, Splash (no base) and Splash over black base (used flash)

Left to Right: Pinked, Destiny and Doll Face

Both shadows are absolutely stunning and I can't wait to play with them! Of the blushes I think I will get the most use out of Destiny and Pinked though I like them all. Have you tried BFTE? If so what is your favorite color?

Hope you all have a lovely Wednesday and as always,

FOTD 6/30 Tequila Sunrise

I went to go hang out with some friends on Saturday and decided I wanted something super bright and super fun, so of course I got out my Sugarpill stash and went to town. I was inspired by the Tequila Sunrise drink and I was pretty happy with how it all came out even though I slightly fudged up the liner on my left eye. :/ Anyhow, I hope you guys like it! :)

Don't mind my brows, didn't have time to shape them how I wanted.
