CLOSEUP:: Wet N Wild's Comfort Zone 8 Pan Palette

Hey Guys!
I know you've probably heard of it before, but I recently fell back in love with Wet N Wild's Comfort Zone palette. I wanted to show you a closer up view of it along with swatches. The Comfort Zone palette is the most wearable out of all the 8 pan palettes. The left side is neutrals and the right side has greens and a beautiful blue duo chrome shadow [said to be a dupe for MAC's Club].

Swatches::Tarte Puttin' On The Glitz

Hey Guys!
I wanted to show you a set I won from Tarte a little while ago. It's one of their limited edition sets called Puttin' On The Glitz. The set includes three eyeshadow palettes, a purse to snap them into and a lip gloss. I've misplaced the lip gloss so I can't show you a swatch of that.

Here's what the purse and three palettes look like, not too bad. A silver snakeskin.

The first palette is Walk In The Park & it has a bronzer.

The second palette is Girl's Night Out & it has a shimmering powder.

The last palette is Nine to Five & it has an Amazonian Clay blush

This is the inside of the clutch. It has some credit card slots, a mirror, and a little pocket area for cash. This clutch isn't extremely big, but it's great for when you're going out and want to carry just the essentials. It also has an area for a lip gloss.

Each palette has snaps on the back and it just snaps into the clutch like so:

Overall I think this is a great deal, the shadows are nicely pigmented and you get such a variety of colors. My favorite is definitely Nine to Five! You can get this on and it retails for $48!

Thanks so much for reading!!

NOTD: Neon-licious!

Hey Guys!
Oh Em Gee, it's been FOREVER since I've posted a NOTD! I'm sorry I've failed you polish lovers, I'll do better :) This mani consists of a Color Club hot pink [the name rubbed off! It's one of their scented ones though], a Sally Girl neon orange [it doesn't have a name again! Ugh!], topped with Essie's Shine Of The Times and NYC's Matte Me Crazy topcoat. 

I'm not too crazy about how it looks matte. This is my first matte top coat so I'm somewhat underwhelmed. Bleh, I hate when that happens. Anywho, here's the mani :)


  • The polishes alone
  • The polishes topped with Shine Of The Times
  • All of the polishes matte

Thanks for much for reading!

Have you jumped on the BB Cream craze? Why or why not? If so, which do you use?

I, personally, don't think I'll try a bb cream. Two reasons: 

  1.  I need a heavier coverage.
  2.  I'm oily as crap!

My First OOTD!!

Hey Guys!
I never thought I'd actually want to do an OOTD. I don't necessarily think I have style and I don't look good [my opinion] in pictures taken by others. But I got my first high-lo top and I couldn't wait to wear it! This is what I wore to a birthday gathering.

Hey Guys
It's time for my first Wack/Win Wednesday and today I'll be talking about the NYX Girls Glosses. If you aren't exactly sure what this segment is, click here to find out all about it!

It's a because...

  • They're not sticky 
  • They last for about 2-3 hours
  • They keep my lips moisturized
  • They're SUPER cheap!
  • They come in a wide variety of colors

I love these glosses and I cannot wait to get more! If you want to buy them online, you can click here [they're on sale at the moment!] The only thing you have to watch out for is making sure the color in the tube is the same on your lips. Apricot & Strawberry are more sheer.

Beauty Supply Store Haul!!

Hey Guys!!
I recently discovered a BSS that sold some NYX & Ruby Kisses products so I decided to just get a few things I'd been curious of. I also picked up some Nicka K lipsticks as well.

Here's a look of all the products I got
Products from L-R:

  • Nicka K lipstick in Lavender Tint
  • Nicka K lipstick in Orange Tint

  • NYX Girls gloss in Apricot
  • NYX Girls gloss in Doll Pink

I have a feeling this concealer may be slightly too light for me. You can see the drastic contrast between my skin color and it's color, but we'll see!

Well that's all the products I've picked up recently. Check out your local beauty supply stores, you never know what what you may find! Thanks so much for reading.

P.S. One of these products will be in My Wack/Win Wednesday post. . .can you guess which one and if I'll like it or not?!

Pretty Pisces Beauty has a FB page!!

Hey Guys!

Thanks so much!

FOTD: Makeup for Glasses ::Bright Lips::

Hey Guys!
I wanted to share with you a look I did that was actually worth everyone else seeing haha. Don't you hate when you look good in person, but it doesn't translate on camera?! So annoying! Anywhos, here's the look:

I wanted to do a green smokey eye but felt like wearing a bold lip as well. 
I used the Maybelline palette shown here, MAC's Heroine lipstick and All My Purple Life lipglass on top. The blush I'm wearing is NYX's Amber.

Another reason I wanted to do a bold lip is because I was wearing my glasses. Sometimes your eyes get hidden behind them and the glare, so use the bright bold lip color to say "Hi!" rather than your eyes. Of course, you can do both eyes and lips like I did. 

I want to show you how a "bare" face and bold lips can look just as put together when you're wearing glasses:

This picture has an Instagram filter over it

I was super tired in that above picture but I wanted to look put together and nice. I applied my face powder to somewhat even out my skin tone and put on a bold lip! This lipstick is Wet N Wild's Purty Persimmon and I used MAC's Bittersweet lip liner to darken it up slightly.

What are your tips and tricks for making your makeup stand out when you wear glasses? Thanks so much for reading!!

What’s your latest makeup obsession?

My latest obsession has to be lip products. Lip glosses, lip sticks, lip stains and everything else!! Haha
