Ah, the higher end makeup brands. I myself have a love for TooFaced, MAC and Urban Decay. I have personally wanted to try CARGO, but every single time I visit Sephora, I seem to be in a hurry and I just never actually get around to it. Well ladies, there are a few sites to check upon every now and again. For instance, I found this Eyeshadow quad by CARGO for $12.00 and it retails on their site for $30.00 CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!? No joke. This site has eyeshadow pens, and lip glosses of the brand CARGO for $9.00 and under. This is honestly how I purchase my high-end cosmetics. I wait for a sale, or I simply try to find it on another site for way cheaper! (I am frugal after all.) If you like CARGO, or wanted to try some of the line for way cheaper than Sephora sells it, here you go. Let me know if you purchase anything or have any recommendations! I am currently deciding on what to try. I kind of have my heart set on the Eyeshadow Quad! :) I will try to keep everyone updated with all of the sales I find on the net, so that you guys can get a head's up on the good stuff! ;) Here's the link: http://www.hautelook.com/short/3H1ay Keep checking out the site every few days for new beauty items to appear. They also sell Urban Decay, The Balm, and ELF products quite often, so it's very worth checking up on often, as things sell out really quickly here! (No wonder, lol)

I felt the need to use green. I must admit, green is such a great color...grass, money, the cups in my pantry, my fave pair of socks and is also my fave nail polish shade. I think you get the idea that green is my favorite color of all time. I have red hair and when I wear green things, it feels like Christmas...EVERY DAY THAT I WEAR IT. And honestly, who DOESN'T love Christmas? Well, with this look, I used 2 shades of green and a light neutral color. Step 1: Start with your basic face. (foundation) here is my basic face as well as my "Derp" face...woo!

I ordered this on Ebay a while back, and I just thought I'd let you guys know about this! This is the Miss Rose Delicately Wet/Dry Eyeshadow palette! This palette is PERFECT for those of you who want to play with color...and I'm not talking about muted colors, in fact I'm referring to quite the opposite! This has Purples, Blues, Reds, Yellows, Magentas, Pinks, Oranges, and they are metallic. Now at first glance, this palette looks cheap. Like "there is no way that pigment is gonna last," cheap.You will be in for such a surprise! These colors are bold, and this is NOT your grandmother's palette! The shadows are a powder, but at first touch they turn into a cream. I was shocked and thrilled! I figured it would be powdery and such mess! Nope, not at all. You don't even have to RUB your fingers in it! The only downfall is that it can be hard to get enough color on your brush (when dry) to apply it. I use clean fingers to apply this, or I use them wet. The colors are marbled together, so it's kind of a surprise to see what it's really going to look like. The cream spreads evenly and boldly. The staying power is truly amazing, and now I'm planning an order for some of the other palettes! (Glitter and shimmer palettes and even the baked stuff) Here are some pics: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MISS-ROSE-Wet-Eye-Shadow-48-Mixed-Color-Palette-1-/200440074311?pt=US_Makeup_Eyes&hash=item2eab28d047

I'm thinking about stepping it up some. 1 prize is alright, but the more you get, the more FUN it is! So here's my thinking: I may put together kits or sets after this current Giveaway is over. OR I may just add more winners! I want to know what you guys think...2-4 prizes for 1 person bi-weekly OR 2 winners bi-weekly? Let me know what would be more fun! I have SO much stuff, and even more on the way...so I honestly don't mind putting an eye set or lip kit together, or even a full face kit!
