I decided, after watch endless You Tube videos and blogs, that the best smokey eyes are matte. It looks better and blends better...I totally AGREE!
Here's a quick review on it!!
-I love the color.Its not as mauve on me as it looks in the tube. But its pretty.
-The formula is super light and not sticky at all.
-I like smell of it. Smells like spearmint(its infused with peppermint). Reminds me of Doublemint Gum.lol!
Of course I did the same as I did with Envy( the green one) I used it as a base with a similiar color on top. At the advice of Kia of Yummy411, I based my lid with my primer as well.

This is a picture of me in 1997 before I went to the Million Women March with 99 other women. I wacked off the rest of my already short hair. And... this was a time that chicks were going short and natural but had I folks telling me I should've cut my hair off( mainly female family members, like I had long hair or something). I had no political, emotional, or spiritual agenda to my decision. I did it because I saw the group For Real with the same haircuts and thought it was cute...
It made me mad back then that my own family was critical of the choice but I didn't give a damn and didn't defend it. This was the beginning of "I don't give a damn's" of how you feel about my look...
Over the years, I wacked it off several times. I even had a low fade...and a boyfriend who LOVED that haircut.
I'm just bothered at Solange and others who BC...feel "free" about it..then somebody says something...then they got something say back.She got on twitter used up all the periods available to make her point against "haters". If you didn't care why get on a social network and defend a haircut in which there is no hair left?
Own that cut!!! Find the right products for your hair, get a shape up, some earrings, and for goodness sake...don't go barefaced. If you don't like makeup,throw on some shades or something with that baldie.:) Hell, Solo, your creative than a mutha...dye the ish up like red, yellow and green.:)

So, I grabbed two Wet N' Wild Idol Eyes Creme Eye Shadow Pencils in Electro(blue) and Envy( Green) from CVS via $5.50 in Extra Bucks. I was going to buy a magazine but saw them on a display in the shampoo aisle *shrugs shoulders* and decided the pick them up.
They were $1.99 a piece.
This pic is my busted eyebrows that I need to get at... lol!... and the Idol Eyes Pencil in Envy by itself. I didn't base my eye because I wanted to see how they held up...
I use a green from one of my Santee palettes and a white color shadow on the brow bone to tie in the look...

Well....It arrived today and this is what I won....
a lip gloss. a makeup bag. a coupon.
Now...the reason I'm acting so cynical about this is that the "ARV( actual retail value)" says $50 in the ad.
This not $50 worth.Do you know what $50 of WnW looks like? It's the most of the display in the store and they send me this!
I know I say free is better than nada...but come on...
-It came within a month of winning
-I got a the new WnW lip gloss to review
-I got a coupon I'm going to use to get the rest of their new e/s crayons I saw in CVS.I already have two.:)
**You have on a bad outfit, hair and nails did and done, shoes and handbag just right...yet you have on no makeup...BAREFACED-NESS!!!***
And STOP it right now with "I don't how to do makeup" or "I don't do makeup" or ( my favorite excuse) "I don't have TIME to put on makeup" But YOU had time to go to the mall,waxed on and off about this hot outfit you got,drag people to the mall with you...yet you can't do 5 minutes of lipgloss and mascara.
As my Diva, B.Scott would say...bitch.boo.bye!!!
But your cousin Jamesy is here to help. In the next set of photos, I will show how to combat BAREFACED-NESS in about four steps....
Me...BAREFACED. But not dressed up. I was about to run an errand or two. But like Kimora Lee Simmons says " Leave the house dressed as if you might run into your worst enemy".
Wet N Wild Brow Kit( complete with brush, two colors and a brow wax for wild hairs)
Now...I still look " BARE". Because I have splotchy areas and uneven color on my face...

This is OPI Over The Taupe for the Paige Demin Collection. Reminds me of Sephora Metro Chic but a bit sheer. I did two coats and I could still see my nail underneath the color. All those taupe nail colors look like creek water...murky and dirty.

Because, I'm pretty sure we have all watch those YouTube tutorials that you went..
"Why does think she can do makeup...ewww."
Yep. Not everyone on that joint can do them...very well. I am one.:) So my channel will have a bit of a different angle. It's going to be...Me...real life...my life as a beauty addict and random beauty addict posts.
Hopefully, no one will ask for a tutorial.:)
Watch the video...subscribe...I promise to entertain!
I just did this N.O.T.D this morning...Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Blue Me Away. Its a great sky blue...but unfortunately out of all those different colors I saw in the collection( about 20 or so) it was the only one to catch my eye...step it up Sally Hansen.
Out of these two pictures...the first picture is the truest to what it really looks like.
