Playin' With Gold Inspired by Ms. Katrina & A Quickie Product Review

Hi Y'all... The last few days have been really craptastic (craptastic is a word) here in CT... It's been all stank, gray, drizzly & gross. This kinda weather takes such a toll on my sunny lil heart. I'm all kinds of cranky. I've been holed up in my room getting my ass fat off of Yan Yan & Dessert Pocky (desert Pocky is the sh!t, it's like Pocky for grown folks and they are THICKER)...
I've been reading & keeping up with everyone's blogs, forgive me if I'm not commenting but I'm there, I promise.
I scored the awesomest (is that a word?) wallet from Kimberly Tia's BLOG SALE!! Go take a look, the Tokidoki "inspired" wallet is MINE all mine so don't even look at it! I emailed her so fast to claim it, I've never typed so quickly in my life. It's so weird that she posted it up because I'm going through this "art" phase, and discovering artist and stlyes that I like, Fafi she's such badass! I'm so bummed that I missed the Fafi MAC Collection!! Maybe it was for a good reason....I fell in love with the Tokidoki by Italian artist Simone Legno and all of a sudden the wallet was on her blogger sale. That's why I totally ♥ Ms. KT! I can't wait until it arrives so I can fill it with my $16.70, maxed out credit cards and my new ugly ass Drivers License!

I'm even thinking about going to Micheals and grabbing me a little sketch book and some pencils and maybe start doddling, lol...

Last night I was feeling creative and I wanted to try a new look! I loved the Gold Winged Eye Look that I saw on Katrina's blog (Katrina is A Princess). I really wanted to try it because I ususally look like a crack hoe when I try to wing my liner.... So here's the look that I was going for. I hope you don't mind me borrowing a pic from your blog...

Did I nail it? I don't think so.... It was my first time winging (is that a word) liner, so I'm going to have to practice this technique. I was kinda afraid to really wing it and go to far. It's super easy and I'm sure that if I practice it a few times I'll get it down in no time. Refer to Katrina's Post here for the breakdown. I do like the way the gold came out on me. I'm going to try this look again for a party that I might go to on Saturday.


Ardell LashMagic- Quickie Review
I found this little treasure a few weeks ago at Harmon's (the beauty section inside of Bed, Bath & Beyond). It claims to blend your lashes with your falsies. "Ardell LashMagic is not your ordinary mascara, LashMagic Blending Mascara simply blends your natural lashes into artificial ones making them undetectable. LashMagic does not add length or thickness to your lashes so your lashes will remain clump-free. The LashMagic formula is water soluble and can be easily removed without ruining a perfect pair of lashes".
I give this product 4 ♥♥♥♥... The product does what it claims, it does work better at blending your lashes with falsies then a regular mascara, b/c a regular mascara is usually formulated to "do something" like volumize, lengthen, etc. This just makes them blend and gives a nice finished look. The lashes I used were big and fluffy and a regular mascara probably would of made them look clumpy or like too much... Do you need this stuff, not really, but it's like less than $5 so it wont really hurt your pocket.
