40 LE E/S Set

Whud it do, boo?

Here is my take on the Flirt Cosmetics Pallette. I purchased this in December 08 at Kohls.

Here is what the Pallette looks like closed.

Here is what it looks like opened.

I'm not sure if they still have this at Kohls, but you can check. If you don't know what a Kohls is, it's similar to a Ross or TJMAXX.


1. The colors last all day, but don't forget to have on your handy dandy e/s base.

2. The colors are easy to blend.

3. If you are starting out with make-up or don't want to pay an arm and a leg for e/s then this pallette is for you.


1. Some of the e/s can slip out of place. (All of them aren't glued into the plastic.)

2. There is a little bit of fall out.

3. The packaging isn't that sturdy, because its plastic. So, if you plan on traveling with this pallette I suggest you put the shadows in another pallette. (MAC pallette, etc.)

FYI: I did a look using this pallettee in my 9.FIVE post.

Now, I need to get on the rest of my day.





First Haulage of 09


Did you guys get any goodies from the Bath and Body Works sale? If you did then YAY, but if you didn't the sale ended last Sunday. Well, I didn't know about it until I watched one of Lepooke's haul videos on youtube. If you haven't checked her out, you should. She has some DOPE SAUCE videos. Anyhoo, when I heard they were having 75% off and their make-up was 90% off I had to think twice. I didn't really want to get anything, because I'm saving my money for the Hello Kitty MAC collection. Then I thought to myself you can't beat deals like that. So, I decided to check it out. I got a few things.

I wanted to get some body sprays and anti-bacterial hand soap. Then I got a few lip stuffz. The make-up was practically gone, but I'm glad I got a few things. I'm not really a lip product kind of woman, but I wanted to try these out because the packaging was cute and they weren't expensive. Then I came across their "Anti-Acne Starter Kit". I am still working on my dream of having flawless skin. Hopefully, this works because having acne in my twenties is not the BIDNASS! I think I'll do a review on it too. Just incase you loves out there have an acne issue too. I'm praying that this works for my sensitive skin.

All the stuff I got :

The Lip products

The "Anti-Acne Starter Kit"

Hope all of you purchased some goodies too. *smiles*

Stay blessed!




Whud it do, boo?

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Wednesday!

Anyhoo, I haven't been wearing make-up lately. Well, I have but it has been my everyday look. You know blush, eyeliner, mascara, and gloss. You females feel me? Then I started feeling bad, because all of this make-up is just sitting there and catching dust. So, I found a reason to wear make-up yesterday. My bff and I decided to have dinner together. We haven't seen each other in months and we haven't exchanged Christmas gifts. I decided to go pretty casual with my ensemble, but I tried something different with my eyes.

I was looking in my closet yesterday and I realized that I haven't used my JORDANS in such a long time. So, a thought went into my head that I should use them. Plus, it was sunny outside and I was not about to use them if it was raining. TRUST THAT! The Jordans were white, light blue, black, and gray. I decided to use light blue, greenish blue, black and gray. I used my new Flirt Cosmetics pallette. I'm pretty much diggin' it.

THEEEE inspiration:

So, here is what I came up with.

Here is another picture, but with both eyes.

Hope you all dig it. Tell me what you think.

One more thing..

Here is what my bff got me for Christmas 08. Just incase you were wondering. *smiles* All of you and yo mama have probably seen these, but just incase you haven't here they are. YAY another traveling set of brushes. I love them too, because they are green.

One of my favorite brushes the 187SE. Sorry, it's kind of blurry but yall get the picture.

I'll be posting a few more posts today. So, watch out for that.

Gran Torino

Good morning gorgeous!

**This is a short movie review**

Have you seen Gran Torino yet? If you haven't you need to see it! OHEMGEE! I think this is the best movie I have seen so far for 09. Clint Eastwood did an AMAZING job! This movie made me cry and laugh at the same time. It made me happy to see Asians portrayed in a movie.
I remember I took a media class a couple of years ago and we discussed how Asians aren't really seen in the media. Now, they are coming up and getting to be seen. That is such a beautiful thing to see.

I loved how realistic that movie was and I liked how the Hmong culture was shown. They didn't just touch the surface of their culture, but it was more in depth. I even learned something new too. I didn't know Hmong people originated from Thailand, Laos, and China. I think the main Hmong actor and actress did a great job. This movie is great for men and women. Ladies, you can ask your boo la la if he wants to see it. *smiles* I saw a lot of men in the movie theatre with their loves.

At the end, it was total waterworks for me. Thank goodness my eyeliner on my waterline didn't smudge. Thanks to good ol' MAC for that. =p

Gran Torino Pictures, Images and Photos

Now, I can't wait for this movie to come out on HD. I hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did.

Happy movie watching and have a blessed day.

Come back and look for upcoming make-up/fashion posts. *smiles*

Cravin skittles now

Hey there!

This will be one of my random posts.

Have any of you seen the latest skittles commercial? Well, if you haven't an Asian and Filipino man are on there. I had to do a double take when I saw it. (You know when you have to look at something twice.) I wasn't paying attention until I heard something familiar to me.

I thought it was a pretty DOPE SAUCE commercial. It feels good to have the media aknowledge an Asian and Filipino man.

If you haven't seen it you should go check it out. MOS DEF!


Stay blessed!

Intro/ Inauguration

Good morning!

Let's start with the introduction, shall we? Well, I initially wanted to start this blogspot, because I have been INSPIRED. I have been a youtube lurker for sometime now. I started watching different videos here and there. Then, I discovered the FABULOUS make-up world. I found it amazing and addicting at the same time. heehee.. Honestly, I never knew about make-up until I started watching youtube. Nobody, in my family ever taught me how to put make-up on. I learned from two friends how to do the basics, but never in such detail as youtube. So, I learned how to do everything on my own. *POPS MY COLLAR* I started doing my make-up at age TWENTY1. Holy smokers, can you believe it? You can say I was a late blummer with this make-up thang. *smiles* It's all good though, because I have learned SOOO much and have expanded my collection. I have a six piece plastic container of make-up now and I think I need to get another one. EEEEK.. heehee..

My first love is fashion. I have a PASSION for FASHION. I may not match all the time, know the latest trends off the runway, afford the latest pumps, but I can ROCK and PUT together a FABULOUS ENSEMBLE!

So, on my blog you'll see a lot of make-up and fashion posts. You'll see haulage and reviews from el cheapo thangs to the expensive thangs. I'm thinking of adding some specific category related posts too when I get more comfortable with this blogspot bidnass. I don't know if I'll be discussing my personal life on here, because I don't know if I'm ready to lay my personal bidnass out there. You feel me?!? Hopefully, this blog is helpful to someone who doesn't know about make-up or fashion. Someone, who is just bored and decides to surf the net to get out of their bordem. Or even maybe someone who is involved in the make-up or fashion world and wants a gain more knowledge or learn something new. Hopefully, something does come out of this, because I'd like to learn more from you, you, and uhh you too. *smiles*

Unfortunately, I won't be doing any youtube videos, because I have NO clue how to put videos on there. I'll just explain and put pictures on here for your viewing pleasure. So, I want to give a BIG UPS and THANKS BUNCHES to my favorite make-up gurus. All of you have inspired me and I love watching your videos. Thank you for responding to my comments, even though I just said a simple "thank you". All of you have made me believe I can look FIERCE wearing make-up. So, thank you again and keep doing FABULOUS work! If yall haven't checked these FABULOUS people out then you should. GO GO GO... *smiles*


























Enough, of blabbing about myself. I got up around 7 a.m. to watch the festivites going on for the Inauguration. It was just amazing to watch and see what goes on during this time. It felt like the world was coming together to celebrate this special day. I got really emotional when I saw President Obama take his seat during the introductions of the VIPS. I loved how even though everyone and their mama is a different religion they brought God into it. The power of prayer is strong and amazing. Michelle, Malia, and Sasha looked fierce in their ensembles. I have the utmost faith in our President, but there is a tiny bit inside of me that is a little skeptical. I just really want to see some change. I hope that all our soilders are taken out of the middle east. I hope that our economy gets better, because too many people have been effected. I could go on and on. heehee.. With all that said, I'm still very excited to see some change. YES WE CAN!

Stay blessed!
