Boscia B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++ - before + after

Been looking for a B.B. Cream for awhile now but the problem i find is because im so pale finding a right match for my skin tone is difficult...i was recommended the boscia B.B. Cream so i went ahead and bought it from Sephora....I first tested it out at night under artificial light..it was darker then i liked but then the next day i tested it again in real sunlight and it was a huge difference in color...here is before and after photos..would love to know your thoughts!

MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua Smoky Lash

Bought this mascara online from Sephora after seeing my friends - Theartismakeup - on twitter post her blog post on this mascara..after seeing what it did to her lashes i had to buy it..I have gone through so many claiming to give volume and length but dont....it cost me $22 ..i have NEVER spent this much on mascara before so i took a chance and im so glad i did...this is the results i got..what do you think??


Some makeup looks from the past few months

I forget what products i used for each look but i usually use Sugarpill cosmetics,MUFE flash palette,inglot,Kryolan AquaColor palettes,eye kandy cosmetics,urban decay eye shadows and wet n wild

Kat Von D - Mi Vida Loca Palette

Bought this palette a few days ago and received it in the mail today.
The packaging is gorgeous!! this palette is also a spring open style ..you open it by pressing the spring loaded button which i really like 

initial thoughts - i like it..packaging is so pretty and the eye shadows are bright fun colors with a mixture of mattes and shimmers

here are photo's of the packaging and swatches 

name of colors (left to right)
Swan Song,Marya,No Regrets,Drama for yo Momma,Mad Max,Dublin,Sparklehorse,Altruism

Swan Song was a very difficult color for me to pick up on camera.To look at it it looks like an off white BUT when you apply it its becomes like a duo chrome that turns to this shimmery pink..its a really cool color

 The top line of swatches is WITHOUT a base and the lower swatch line is with a too faced insurance base

the grand prize was
