FOTD and a Hot Mess! Yes you BM 101!

Ok... I need to digress here about the last post. My sister and BF saw my DevaCare post and noticed that I looked totally washed out and didn't like the pic. I was using Revlon's Color Stay foundation mixed with moisturizer (thanks ginawinabina! I've enjoyed the tip), and I don't think that it photographs well. I'd put Laura Geller's Balance n Brighten lightly over it, but alas to no avail.... in short, one hot mess!!! Any suggestions?

Onto the FOTD: I miss Hard Candy make-up

I was going out with friends and wanted to do a violet/purple look, but I was running late, which is why my hair is kind of wet and not looking the way I wanted it to look (skipped Deva...shoulda, woulda, coulda).

How beautiful is this quartet. I know that we all love saying quad, but really we should adopt new terms. If the eyeshadow has four shadows, then let's call it a quartet. I like the symphonyesque sounding ring to it. I picked this up at TJ Maxx for...wait for it.... $3.99. TJ can be like the more upscale Big Lots when it comes to make-up. Many of the colors are sparkly... not shimmer...sparkle...well a bit of a hybrid I suppose.

I'm trying to sport the Barry M famed color 101, which my BF went to four different Superdrugs to get when he went to London. Very sweet of him. He said he looked at it like a scavenger hunt. LOL! I was trying to rock it, but I think that really it may just be a good mixer color. What do you think?

BTW: I am still sorting out how to add the pics and place them where I want. Just haven't sorted it out yet... Yeah I know the pics are taken in my bathroom and will edit out the shower curtain action in other pics:)

The dark purple with the gold is called Star and the more Easter pastel pallette is called Dillusional. I've only swatched the bottom white/pearl looking color so you can see the way it changes. I used that on the inner corner. I've only swatched that one because this product is discontinued:(

Have a fantabulous day!


  1. Good luck with the new blog! I'm sure you'll love getting to know everyone through the beauty blogs :)

  2. Oh I WISH Barry M 101 looked like that on me!! You look stunning, that purple def brings out those very green eyes! lucky xxx
