  2. hey niki! enterded the givaway contest! loved the cuff!
    thanks for all this makeup info! im seriously a rooky when it comes to makeup and beauty products :P
    thanks for your comment by the way, i really dont know where are theese hate comments were comming from :P ive never dealt with this before, have you come across with a simillar situation? im not sure how i should handle it :S

  3. yayy i have some of those! i have never used bare essentials though, is it good?

  4. love the MORANGE. been wearing it all summer :) and the Diorshow Mascara... well, thats all I needed all summer (and some lip gloss) now, just gotta stop biting my nails and pur some color on them.

  5. where can i buy those OPI colors online? AND i've been looking for an all over coverage matte foundation - any suggestions? i've heard lauren mercier, but i would definitely need to go in and have someone help me pick my shade.


  6. Yay for Aveeno! I love their products, totally gentle and effective.

    Hehe sorry, the giveaway is running until Wed! Only 2 more days to wait ;)

  7. I will readily admit that I am makeup challenged, but I throw my full support behind your recommendations of Diorshow mascara and Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer. I wear both daily!


  8. Oh my, that OPI is getting - once again - to me.

    Sweetly addictive.

  9. I want to get the nars orgasm blush soo bad!! I've heard all sorts of great things on it

  10. I love how you did this as a collage! NARS Orgasm blush is the best, isn't it? It's the only blush I use.

  11. Great guide, and I definitely agree with you on almost all of them being essentials! My Nars blush is by far my most integral makeup piece, Orgasm is amazing, so is Cactus Flower too if you ever want to try anything more rosy!

    Love Alexandra

  12. Great picks! I wouldn't be able to live without my Shu Uemura eyelash curler.

  13. I've been meaning to get an orange toned lipstick forever. I love MAC but its rather expensive.

  14. Great picks! Love the OPI colours for fall, and NARS blush obviously!

  15. great products! i bought the chanel version of the OPI You don't know jacque - a nice taupey mushroomey shade that's perfect for fall. and Nars blush is my staple all year round.

  16. OPI is most definitely the only nail polish to use.
    Such unique colours.
