Tarina Tarantino & Nicol's Giveaway

Wow I'm surprised I'm getting comments on my first blog entry! =]
As a thank you I'm posting up a swatch for the MAC Lady Gaga lipstick ...

It's a true light pink color..and actually the lasting power is pretty good too! I finally got the lipstick off my hand after lots of rubbing under the tap. The only down side is that the lipstick is a bit on the dry/matte side for a MAC lustre lipstick.


Btw..have you guys seen the new Tarina Tarantino line at Sephora yet? The packaging is cute with rhinestones and all, but I expected more from this line. Like cmon, I can stick rhinestones on my makeup pans below.. =P

As for the products themselves, I have no idea what they're like as I haven't even seen them in Canada yet. Sephora reviews gave most products pretty high ratings though! What do you guys think?
* Some of the products I liked... just looking at the pictures

haha pinkness overload *_*


btw Nicol has reached 200 followers (congrats ^^) and is doing a giveaway!

10 pairs of criss cross lashes ♥ (click above picture)
a girl can never have enough fake lashes yes? =P

First Blog Entry ^-^


I finally decided to start a blog, mainly to keep track of all my purchases..but also to have a place for me to ramble, rave, and review beauty related things =]

Just a mini introduction - my name's Natalie and I'm currently residing in Toronto (I'm from Vancouver/Hong Kong really) for studying purposes. Oh, and I loveeee shopping of course! =P

Ok that was the boring stuff. Now onwards to the more interesting things!

I fell in love the moment I saw this......

Yes, this is the Limited Edition Viva Glam Lipstick featuring Lady Gaga. Besides the pretty box with Lady Gaga's signature emblazoned on it (and on the lipstick), I loveee the gorgeous light pink color (despite the slightly matte finish)! Being a fan of Lady Gaga and just anything pink in general, I HAD to get it.
There is actually another Viva Glam lipstick out right now...featuring Cyndi Lauper, but it's in bright red and to be honest, I don't think I can pull it off -_-

Another thing I bought yesterday is Essie's Matte About You. It's basically a top coat that gives any nail polish a matte finish! I initially wanted to get the OPI one, but it's $20! (essie one only $10!)
There are lots of matte polishes out now, but I thought...why not just get the matte finisher? Isn't that even better? You can make ALL your polishes matte hahaha =P
Anyway I was excited to try this out, so I finally pulled out my CG in For Audrey...and this was the result:

I'm still not sure if I like the matte or the shiny..what do you guys think? (edit: ok I'm not sure if you can even tell that it's matte in this picture -__-)

I decided to drop by AE because I heard that the sales are better in store than online atm..

I ended up buying this

I was eyeing this before the sale...and omg it was $80!!! wtf. since when is AE so expensive??

Anyway yesterday when I went, a lot of stuff was on sale, with additional 40% off! So this bling sweater came to $21 =] ~$60 off...good deal?

I also bought a Winter Olympics 2010 bath towel today with Muk Muk on it =] But that's not really beauty related and I'm too lazy to take a that's it for now!

Thanks for reading and subscribe if you want to know what else I bought! =P
