BIG apology!

Wow I have been pretty much MIA on my blog and I apologize to you who read =(

Everything is okay, just extremely busy with work and I lost my wi-fi internet for a couple days lol grrr.
BUT! I went shopping tonight at my mall and bought a lot so I want to do a haul post to share with you guy's what I bought, so look for that soon. Tomorrow I have a friends birthday party downtown Seattle so I won't be able to post it but hopefully Sunday.

I also ordered GEO circle lenses about a month ago, they should be in my hands in 2 weeks so I will do a review on those as well.

Until then, have a wonderful weekend ladies!



If any of you have any MAC Hello Kitty brush set available at your local MAC/Nordstrom/Macy's store, please let me know, I will paypal you more than it is worth. I made the mistake of waiting and I have called more than 25 stores near me and they are all sold out =(. Pretty sure I will never get my hands on them, but hoping I can try one LAST time. Let me know =)

Blushes - MAC vs. NARS?!

I am not quite sure which blush I love more. Unfortunately, I bought the MAC blush (Shy Beauty) at a Cosmetics Company Outlet store so I don't think it is available at a MAC store permanently but may still be available at your local CCO. The NARS blush (Orgasm) is a tad darker then Shy Beauty but both are a pink/pea
ch color with accents of golden shimmer. I am drawn to any light pink cosmetic with gold shimmer!!

The picture above shows that both blushes are pretty close in color. I did a little swatch for you guy's, and just to let you know, I did overdo it a little bit just to do this swatch. I bought the MAC powder for $13.50 but would have paid $18.00 if I had purchased it at a MAC store . NARS blushes are smaller by 1.5g and are $25.00, so it is a little more expensive which is a bit of a letdown but both colors are great!

Let me know if you guy's have these colors and tell me if you love them, hate them, whatever! I personally like Orgasm better just because Shy Beauty seems to flush my face a tiny bit since it is lighter, you can sort of tell by my swatch! I just love the glowy and shimmery look on my cheeks after I apply NARS on my face! Leave a comment below letting me know which color you prefer more!

OH HEY, it's my kitty =) lol she was bothering me while I was taking pictures for this blog post so I just took one of her meowing at me for 10 minutes straight.

The box price will not stay the same month after month (i.e. January's box price $10.99, February's box price $11.99) only because the content that they receive may be greater than a previous month, this is very fair and they will charge accordingly.
