More Annoyances from FaceFront

•••
Recently Facefront tried advertising on my blog via Project Wonderful. As soon as I found out I banned them. Considering the constant harassment by them or someone associated with their company over the past two years (nasty comments left on my blog, etc) I found it to be a slap in the fact that they'd open a Project Wonderful account and advertise on my blo[...]

Flamingo's Flowers

•••
Between my Pink Look and my Purple Look, and now my coral look, I'm definitely craving spring this week. I have to admit, Smashbox's Flamingo is prettier on the eye than I thought it would be. It's got some nice depth that does become a coral pink. It's not as pretty to me as Fyrinnae's Rapunzel Had Extensions, but it's definitely pretty. I think it could be[...]

You may have seen me mention them before in my Too Faced Teddy Bear Hair Brushes review. This is for a $25 gift card[...]

French Twist

•••
I wanted to try Flirt's French Toast with the new trio of eye shadows I purchased from Nyx (on Hautelook). This is the look I came up with. I started by applying my eye shadow primer. Then I used Nyx Pure Skin from eyebrows to upper crease and along the inner lid. Next I applied Nyx Purple widely in my crease and blended out the upper edge of the crease with[...]
