Overall Thoughts: 

My Septermber Ipsy Glam Bag, arrived and I was not all that impressed with them items in this months bag. I received my on September-19-2013 I had seen other subscribers that received there Glam Bag as early and the eleventh, and after seeing a couple of items that other subscribers received I was really excited to received mine. Once received I was a little disappointed since J.Cat Fantabulous Lipstick was broken and the other items that were just not for me, I would have preferred a Butter of London sample, John Frida Shampoo, or a Cailyn Lip Balm like some of the others did but I still managed to come up with a look using most of the products in the bag witch is very appropriate for fall. The September Bag was not my favorite but I'll keep my subscription and hope next months is better.

Reflection Sunday


My number one goal in life is to make my mom proud, I know that I'm not perfect and that she doesn't expect me to be but I just wanna make her proud of me.  I want her to see that she gave me a great example that she thought me well that I have learned from my mistakes just like she said I would one day.  All I want is to one day be half of the women she is strong,caring, protector, but most important a Great mom. 

Love you, 


For months I have been trying to make a change in the way I live, the way I live my life and most important keep a positive mind set not only for me but for my family.  Every Sunday I read different quotes and pick the one that stands out to me the most and right a little reflection of what this quote means to me. This way I start my week with a positive attitude and the feeling that I can accomplish anything.

Review: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

Shade: Anarchy (Purchase Here)
Fill Weight: 2.8g
Cost:  $22.00

Company Description:  

Creamy, badass luxury. Our Pigment Infusion System™ delivers insane color payoff with creamy shine, Maxi-Lip™ plumps and nourishing oils leave lips cushiony soft.

First Impression: 

It goes on like a dream, It's very smooth and creamy.  It also gives a very nice shine to the lips that for my liking its enough that you don't have to add a lip gloss, of course if you do like a very shiny lip you can add a lip gloss on top.  I did notice that after an hour of wearing it it did bleed a little since I did not use a lip pencil since I wanted see the true longevity of the product. 


* How creamy they are 
* Last a long time
* It applies really smooth


*The change of color


As you can tell by the pictures the color completely changed in went from a pinky-salmon color to a bright pink. (please note that the first picture was taken right after I put on the lipstick), to me this change is not a big issue but  I don't understand why the dramatic change of color in such a short period.  I did have lunch at around 2:30pm and as you can see the lipstick pretty much stayed put and I didn't have to retouch. Over all I think that this are great lipstick love how long the last and how creamy they are.
