**I've been hearing hoopla over the "cheap"packaging. MAC just followed the comic book look that is Wonder Woman. I think it looks expensive toys. Have some FUN!!! I can't wait to get this:-)

I AM SPEECHLESS :O Beautiful...

Trend Report

For Spring 2011

Textured Tights

This was a huge trend last year and it's back again! I love this look it can transform a rather boring outfit& make it young,edgy and fun. I know some of my gals are frightful about adding attention to their thighs but I promise you textured tights actually lengthen and disguise flaws. You'll feel a lot sexier too;] Celebrities like Leighton Meester and Ke$ha loves textured tights.

Leather bracelets
This leather bracelet is from $99.95
This is a very hot accessory for Spring. It's different and unique jewelry is very trendy now.I love leather bracelets with a white T-shirt,Jeans,a blazer and flats. This adds a more polished and cool look to outfits.

Nars Lip Gloss [Harlow] $24
It's a tad pricey but it is definitely worth it. Try and get a nude/matte color especially for spring. Spring is about understated and light colors. This lip gloss is not sticky and it lasts forever! Great buy!

Lace-up Wedge Booties [Chloe]
This was the main show for the Spring 2011 runway shows. It's east to see why,it's very funky,super comfy and FASHION FORWARD.Wedge shoes are raved for their comfort.The platform on this particular style of shoes has great support and balance. Gotta get me a pair:-)!!!

Cool Scarves
[Echo Design]
The trick with scarves is to HAVE FUN WITH THEM. There are tons of different ways to wear them. It's best to just throw on a scarf and go rather than trying to place it so perfectly. Also this year it's all about cool patterns!
Check out this helpful video from the lovely,Michelle Phan:

Words cannot explain how much I love lace...yet I don't own a single piece of clothing with lace detail. Well, his was be a major hit on the runway and it's made its way to the real world. Very romantic and adds an instant air of elegance! Little = More in this case. Too much of a good thing= BAD.

[Akris-Spring 2011]
Bold Prints
Designers went crazy this year looking for fresh ideas to create wild and crazy prints. You only live once right?

Apothica Review

I can't believe I never did this. My poor lil 19 year old brain. In Early December,I received my lovely Apothica makeup via USPS.

(Not the best photos but these are the actual products.Cute,huh?)

I ordered the following:
JAPONESQUE Brush Set Touch Up Tube - Blue *****
Jane Iredale PureLash Conditioner *****
Borghese Linea Precisa Liquid Eyeliner No. 01 Black **
Pur Minerals Under Control

Japonesque Brush Set is a travel tube that comes with five well crafted brushes. I was in desperate need of great brushes. My old brushes which I got from CVS were falling apart..literally. The bristles were falling out,just a mess. But these brushes have a smooth easy to hold handle and strong bristles.It includes two eyeshadow brushes,a powder/blush brush,concealer brush and a lip brush.Of course,the beautiful blue color is so MAGNETIC. Had to get it...

Jane Iredale PureLash Conditioner is a formula to strengthen,lengthen and add volume to eyelashes. The white and gold tube is very pretty,cute packaging. The formula is absolutely scentless.I have very sensitive eyes and this product DOES NOT irritate my eyelashes or eyes whatsoever. I've seen a difference in just the four weeks that I've been using it. My eyelashes are definitely fuller.You can wear the conditioner by itself or apply before mascara. It goes on white but blends into your eyelashes in seconds.

Borghese Liquid Eyeliner is a beautiful liquid liner from Italy.The packaging was very nice but it does not have any staying power. I've never seen a liquid liner disappear off my eyelid faster than Borghese. Maybe I just have oily eyelids? 0.o I got black,it's a shame because it goes on very smoothly. The tip is specialized to create a straight& smooth line.Maybe I should use eye primer than use this? I will report back!

Pur Minerals Under Control is a primer for oily skin. My secret is out! I have the oiliest T-zone of all time. The T-zone is the forehead,nose and chin. Pur Minerals DEFINITELY reduces the amount of oil especially on my worst part-my nose. You have to use a dime-quarter size amount for maximum protection. It's scentless and I'll definitely buy it again! Pur Mineral is a non sticky cream that allows your skin to breathe.It feels like you've put nothing on. Most primers feel like sticky film ;( Best primer out there!

I also got two free samples: a herbal bath gel and an acne cleanser.
In summary,I LOVE APOTHICA:)
