Urban Decays Vice 2 Palette

This beauty is just one of the few palettes +Urban Decay Cosmetics  has released this holiday season.  The packaging is stunning with is layered orchid petal design no two vice palettes are alike. Urban made sure each palettes orchid petals were unique. Dont miss out on on this limited palette Buy the vice2 here!
This palette is Packed with jewel tone shades mostly shimmer only two true mattes, Which is a bummer for me personally being a matte lover. The new formula is amazingly rich, super soft and highly pigmented.  I have to admit i purchased this palette twice the first one i took back. Only because the i couldn't wrap my head around the price. 59$ and 65 dollars after tax at sephora it seemed a bit much. I waited a month to see if it was still there if so i would buy it again and i did. 
I was really surprised about pigmentation of a few of the shades. The ones i expected to be amazing weren't really all that. Shades from left to right: Smokeout, Lovesick, Shellshock, Coax, Xrated, Prank, Madness, Strike, Stash and Poison.

Left to right: Radar, Damaged, Voodoo, Betrayal, Derailed, Dope, Toxic, Habit, Ambush and Rewind. 
All 20 shade are beautiful in the pan but swatched you can she the duds clearly. For me lovesick, Prank and voodoo are stinkers. All though you can build voodoo up with a sticky base. 
I used voodoo as an all over lid color with a jumbo pencil in black bean underneath. With a matte hot pink from my 120 palette in the crease. I honestly love this palette i'm so glad i repurchased. I felt it was a need to buy a matte palette to go with the vice2 .To get more wearable looks so i picked up the lorac pro palette. It's like they
 were meant to go together lol, however i do wish that urban decay would come out with an all matte palette. I think that would blow everyone's mind!

Creme of Nature argan oil line review

Creme of nature has sent me a few things, right on time i might add because my hair was in dire need of repair. Since i've gone natural (5 years ago) i have been useing a lot of color it's like i traded addictions, from one chemical to another, relaxers to colors.
My last color left my hair excessively dry, i was getting flashbacks of my relaxer damage, it was nowhere near that bad but still too close for comfort.

My hair before shampoo and conditioning,has a lot of product buildup i've been using these products everyday since i received them. I definitely have my favorites and my not so favorites out of the bunch. 
After i washed my hair with the sulfate free moisturizing shine shampoo i conditioned with the intense conditioning treatment. Mixed with the argan oil, i let that sit in my hair for fifteen minutes then rinsed and apply the perfect 7 leave in treatment and argan gloss and shine polisher.
I decided to skip the flat iron and just blow my hair straight. I love how soft my hair is and the shine is lovely before and after blow drying. I am definitely going to purchase the argan oil 7 in one treatment, gloss and shine polisher and the argan oil those are most haves as soon i put them on my hair i felt like my hair was like silk i'm in love with this line. 
The shampoo and conditioning treatment  are just okay. I don't feel like i would be missing anything if i don't purchase them again down the line.

Hello my loves, here is a day and night tutorial featuring +Keshia Glam  of +Hautedare . My first collaboration and I'm stoked about it so lets jump into my look!
To achieve  my night look here are the steps i took.
Apply your primer and base I'm using beach resort by L.A. Colors.
Apply your lid color I'm using a pear blue out of my shany 120 palette.

Add your crease colors and blend until satisfied I'm using a electric blue a matte by L.A. Colors. On my outer corner and in my crease then blend out my crease with a dark purple from my 120 palette. If you lost color in the process of blending just add more!
Apply your highlight I'm using a white gold from my 120 palette. For my bottom lash line i used NYX jumbo pencil in black bean then applied urban decay shattered on the inner part of the lash line and finished with a dark blue shimmer.
For my inner corner highlight i used polyester bride by urban decay. On my lips coral sheen a moister lipstick by L.A. Colors. I used a coral and a champagne blush from my 27 blush palette from ebay
Just another lip option vivd pink by L.A. Colors .. Go bold or go home right!?! lol

L.A. Colors Cosmetics Product Review

This is a complete rave on these products i had no clue that L.A Colors products were this good. 
Honestly we all think if you buy cheap you get cheap.... But not with these i love everything i got. 
I got two spark palettes Effect and Sensation the shadows are smooth and blend beautifully. Swatches below: 
This is effect one of three spark palettes  by L.A  Colors   
The first row of shadows in the the effect palette
The second row of the effect palette
The sensation palette.

First row 
second row 

The lip jellie  comes with a standard doe foot applicator in little compact size.
  Bloom is a beautiful hot pink 
The mineral blush is also smooth and has great color pay off.
I built up the color to show the pay off but it does go on sheer as you can see the color is buildable.

Last but not least L.A. Colors shadier and blending brush set come with two brushes. 
I  bought a set of these brushes last summer and they became a staple in my routine. I lost my blending brush and tore my room up just to find it lol. I was so happy that L.A. Colors provided me with a new one!
