Last Weekend Recap






Last weekend was a special event, so I wanted to do a sparkly dress and couldn't have been more happy with my dress and the price tag it came along with. It is from Macy's by a brand called "As You Wish". It was $48.00 and the pictures do not do it justice.
Top pic is of me and my bestie :)

I made a great blend of foundation with Revlon Colorstay in Caramel and the Bronze highlight by E.L.F (eyes lips face). For eye makeup I went with Stilla- Kitten as a base and Kevyn Aucoin eyshadow in Aubergine eyeshadow. Blush was also, Kevyn Aucoin in Neolita. And the mascara I used was Maybelline "Lash Stylist" . I have been using Talika Lipocils on my eyelashes and have noticed a significant difference in my eyelashes. But, I will save that for a later post.


Hope you enjoyed this quick post !





FSL Cosmetics Lip Glosses and My PROMO CODE !!

I have worked with Kim the owner of FSL cosmetics for a long time now. And her brand is all natural and I am a HUGE fan of her lip glosses. I mean beyond a fan. Besides the fact that Kim is a female entrepreneur/chemist and inspiration for all women. Plus, her lip glosses and lipsticks are to die for !

Her new summer collection is out and it is as wonderful as I would have expected from Kim. She incorporates exotic fruits, antioxidants and vitamins into all of her products. Which leaves your lips hydrated and smooth.


The 3 new summer colors for the collection are Divalicious, O-mazin and Bonita. And with my Promo Code" FSLglamLauren" (enter it in the comments section during checkout) you can buy 2 lip glosses for just $5.00 each and receive the third FREE! Which is a great deal when buying premium lip gloss !

Here are the colors they feel and smell as good as they look !!! That is what FSL stands for Feel Smell and Look good !

This is the color O-mazin on my lips :
(this is a great red for someone who rarely wears red and is trying to break themselves into wearing it, I think it is universally flattering !)





Next is the color Divalicious :



And the third summer gloss is amazing it is my favorite !

It is called Bonita and it is spectacular !





The smell of all of the lip glosses alone remind me of summer. They all smell just like sweet coconuty goodness ! Her glosses have been part of my makeup bag since she first launched the brand !


With my promo code you can get all 3 of the summer lip glosses in this post for Buy 2 Get One FREE !! So, for a $10.00 you can own all THREE GLOSSES !!!

Totally Fabulous Cosmetics

Totally Fabulous Cosmetics, it sounds like a hard name to live up to ! But, I have to say judging by what I tried it is clearly living up to its name. That is a true pleasure. And, I am happy to show you how gorgeous some of the products are.




Blush-on #320 is a matte mauve color and it goes on nicely and is extremely easy to blend. That is one of my main concern when wearing blush. You don't want something that you're going to put on your face and it turns out to be cakey in one spot. I HATE THAT ! But, none of that here !


I used "Sandstone" a mineral shadow as a base color, it is a great base color. It is a flat gold color with a sheen to it (no sparkle) I lined my eyes with #825 a deep chocolate color with great sparkle I did a really winged out eye. In the crease of my eyelid I applied #821 and added a touch of the #825 to darken it a bit. So, it served as a duo shade, which is awesome !


Also, covered my blemishes before using foundation with the color natural. Covered my blemishes well !



As far as the lipstick I have on, I applied Pink Patina and than I used blush to give my lips the same gorgeous mauve color I have on my cheeks. I love mixing eyeshadows, blushes and pigments into light glosses to give myself a unique color and because it usually lasts very long when I do it. Give it a shot with any color blush and you should be happy, as long as you like the blush of course !





The owner of Totally Fabulous cosmetics is Ms. BebeD. She is a fabulous person I have had the pleasure of "meeting" on twitter. The slogan for "Totally Fabulous Cosmetics" is : Totally Fabulous Cosmetics the brand that belongs in every fabulous women makeup bag, bathroom, makeup kit and pocket book .

Nicole By OPI Swatches

I have recently become obsessed with Nic's Sticks By Nicole for OPI. They are so convenient. When I recently purchased the Nicole by OPI quick dry drops I became even more obsessed.



My nails can now be done much easier at home because the sticks are so easy to use when polishing your nails and the drops make it a breeze, instead of waiting an hour before touching anything I feel confident that my nails are completely dry in about 10 minutes.



1st Pink color is - Express-Ion of Love
2nd color is - In The Nic Of Time
3rd color is - Text Me
4th color is - Baby Go Bye-Bye
5th color is - Indigo Go-Go
6th color is- Where's My Chocolate ?
7th color is- Home By Midnight




I love all of these colors. I am beyond obsessed with Nicole by OPI. And the Quick Dry Drops add to everything being even more amazing !!!


Look how the applicator is shaped. It makes it so easy to polish your nails yourself. Something I normally can't do !

Quick Memorial Day weekend Recap






Above are some snaps of my nice laid-back Memorial day weekend. My fiance and I went to our friends lake house for the night to have a bbq ! It was nice and relaxing !

My Jumper is from Hot Miami Styles. I am obsessed with their clothing. The prices are amazing the quality is actually really amazing. Two things that are very important to me !

All of my makeup was done from the Kevyn Aucoin "Making Faces" palette, which is amazing for travel ! It contains great blush and eyeshadows, the only other makeup I took along was my foundation.
