Bad Habit Beauty Aphrodite Palette eye looks and sneak peek to the new launch

Leave a Comment

Hello, I hope everyone is having a blessed and productive day! In my last post, I introduced the Bad Habit Beauty Aphrodite palette with some swatches. Recently,  I was able to play with it.  Here are some quick and easy looks I did using this bad boy palette. The quality of these shadows are superb! All you need is eye primer and water or mixing medium or setting spray to work with the textured shadows to get the best results.



For the first look I created, I used Coy, Flirt, Blushing and the uniquely textured shadow Crush. To get the intense vibrancy of Crush I used it with the NYX dewy finish spray and the longevity was greater than I expected. 



Here's the second look I did with the shades Coy, Romance, Blushing and Beauty. I used Beauty with the same setting spray to intensify the color more on the lids. This Palette is worth all the hype! Not too mention the 10 πŸ’΅ price tag.☺️ 




To my surprise on IG, I saw this! Yeah! Bad Habit is coming out with another dupe for the Huda Beauty palette and this time it's for her Desert Dusk. Bad Habit will name thiers Athena pictured below.  I can't wait for this new launch (clapping my hands excitedly)

New Hair Change with Guy Tang Mydentity

Leave a Comment

I was very confused on what I wanted may hair to look like after dying my highlights magenta. My birthday is coming up in December and I'll be hitting 43 so I thought to myself maybe some more pink highlights but in a softer shade or caramel blonde.
So, I  decided to get my hair chopped off into a chin length straight bob and got some hair color ideas from my friends on FB.
One friend reached out to me who happened to be a hairstylist and she came up with this concoction which I like to call Galaxy Hair but in a cool way. The highlights idea was gone and a full head of hair color was on the horizon.
She used Guy Tang's new color line called Mydentity. But the process to get my dark hair this galactic took hours but the end result was worth it.


                                                    Here's the Before!
                                             Here's the Between! 
                                            Yep I went there! πŸ˜‚


   My hair reached a level 9 and this was this was the inspo picture we decided on using.
 She did a shadow root using a demi- permanent using Dusty Lavender and 6 volume in developer shown here which turned into a dark purple.

Then for the rest of my hair she combined Pink Diamond and Ultra Violet to create a Lavender shade.


After doing chemistry on my hair, this was the  final and fabulous result and I was very very pleased. :)






So far, I have gotten so many compliments and my hubby even loves it! Of course, with hair like this hight maintenance is involved like conditioning it and touching up the color frequently to keep it vibrant. Let's see how long it lasts, me and my hair phases...

The Aphrodite Palette From Bad Habit Beauty

Leave a Comment
 I Just got the Aphrodite palette in the mail.☺️ These shades are pigmented and beautiful and for only 10 bucks plus free shipping on the shophush_ app which you can download on the google play store for Android or on the App store on I phone.
The 18 shadows are a dupe for the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette but without the $65 dollar πŸ’΅ tag. I can’t wait to play with it! It sold out once so get it before they are gone again.




Here are some finger swatches of the #aphroditepalette. There’s a mix of mattes, shimmers and texture making it fun and versatile. So far, they feel creamy and buttery and can be a bit messy but that's how the Huda Beauty one was as well when I switched it at Sephora.




I was very pleased with the packaging and that no damage was made to the palette in shipment       thanks to all that bubble wrap. πŸ˜€

I can't wait to see how they perform on my eyes! Stay Tuned...

I don't understand why this palette is not getting the love it deserves. The Double Duty Tarte Dream Big 8 pan Amazonian clay eyeshadow palette has a wonderful scent of a chocolate desert and the shades are soft, buttery and pigmented.
This is my very first Tarte palette and I am very impressed.

Since the name of the palette is Dream Big, the encouraging and inspirational shade names go perfectly with it in mattes and metallics!
They are
  • This Is It (rose gold)
  • All In (deep rose)
  • Go For It (brown)
  • You Can (gold)
  • Happening (plum)
  • Hustle (black luster)
  • Ambitious (cream)
  • Risk Taker (pale pink shimmer)


Here is a look I created with this palette. I really like how the colors blended well and the staying power lasted 8 hours under a good primer and or concealer.

For the Crease: happening
 Brow bone: ambitious 
 Lid: This is it 
 Outer corner: all in 
 Lower lash line: happening and all in 
 Brows: Divaderme in Cappuccino Brown 
 Liner: Starlooks 
 Mascara: UD perversion Concealer: 
Amazing Cosmetics hydrate concealer in light golden 
Mineral Powder Foundation: Mica Beauty

I took advantage of Ulta's 20 percent sale and got it for 25 bucks.
Overall, This palette is beautiful, it smells great and works with all eye colors.

The Glassesshop.com Grand Prairie Wayfarer and 50 % Off for You

Leave a Comment
I got very excited when GlassesShop.Com reached out to me to review one of their eyeglasses.
Finding glasses online is not an easy task. There are so many styles and sizes to choose from so you need to know not only your prescription but PD (pupillary distance) as well. All this info you can acquire from your eye doctor. Thankfully, I have my prescription info so it makes shopping for eyewear easier but the decision making can still be challenging. After looking through their website, I picked out a frame that matched my new hair color. These glasses are so pretty in pink and purple and they are called the Grand Prairie Wayfarer. Yes, they are bigger than my normal ones but that's ok because they still fit me well and I'm absolutely pleased with them. They are fashionable and comfortable to wear because they have no nose grips.

My new specs came in a sleek plastic case with the company's  logo on it and a cloth to clean them. 
This site has an array of styles and also carry prescription sunglasses as well. 
I have good news for you! GlassesShop.com is offering my readers a 50% discount on their frames with free lenses including sunglasses. (Sale frames excluded) just type this code GSHOT50 at checkout.
Here are some more pictures of my cool new glasses :)
