Spell Cosmetics


A while back in January i purchased a couple of Spell Cosmetics items and never really used it because i either don't go out as often and i don't wear make up on a daily basis despite the fact i purchased an Eyeshadow in Bronze, Nail Polish in Fetish and I was sent a free sample of one of "allthatglitters21" favorite blush in Zinfandel .


The eyeshadow is in "Bronze" is a gorgeous coppery bronze -y color perfect for summer... and since I am in a very summery mood i decided to play with it and I must confess that I regret not applying it before!!!!!! the picture on the left is not an great picture but the color shows up quite well. On my cheeks i am wearing the Zinfandel blush and its gorgeous, the name sounds like a fairy tale name which resembles the color as well (if that made any sense) it's a baby pink with a bit of silver reflectors --if you're not into high end make up and are always up for a bargain try Spell Cosmetics, you can visit their site www.spellcosmetics.com, the prices are reasonable and their products are awesome and the color payoff is amazing!

Bare Bronze by Victoria Secret


Lately I've been in a gradual self tanner rampage and I decided to purchase this product after going into Victoria's Secret in search of under garments.
Like any other gradual tanners, the smell is not too pleasant once applied but the results that it gives you is definitely visible.
I love applying this product because besides adding color it leaves your skin feeling smooth and luminous in my opinion. To obtain good results its best if you apply it daily because if not your skin starts to look dull and blotchy.

Price: $16 USD

Confessions

On Wednesday May 20, 2009, i cheated on my project 10 pan promise after finding myself extremely stressed about my philosophy final. The professor was a total leprechaun drugged up douche lord (pardon my language) and really did not take the time to explain the material coherently. So after much hassle and killing myself i thought i deserved a little retail therapy and ended up purchasing Benefit Coralista blush in the Sephora at Times Square :)...

The Blush is comparable to NARS Orgasm blush minus the glitter, BEAUTIFUL,GORGEOUS, SEXY CORAL COLOR FOR SUMMER. This blush smells amazing and it brings a small eco-friendly looking brush and the bristles are extremely soft on the skin. The packaging is very catchy and bright and I SIMPLY LOVE IT!
