August 2011 Favorites

Do you find yourself constantly reaching for the same products even though you have a lot more options? For August, ‘ thought I’d share some items that I was insanely obsessed  with:

Top: Fully Loaded Mascara by Mattese NYC
L-R: Wet n Wild (The Gilded Age), Wet N Wild Megalast Lipcolor, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipcolor is a poor man’s answer to MAC. At less than $3, you can get five to six lipsticks equivalent to one MAC (talk about huge savings). To date, I own about ten of these beauties but my top 3 color choices were 913C (nude), C910D (coral), 905D (hot pink).  For a separate review on Wet N Wild’s Mega Last Lip Color, click here.

My eye shadow of the month is also from Wet N Wild Color Icon trio palette, The Gilded Age. Again at less than $3, you can build your makeup collection with good quality, richly pigmented eye makeups.

Think outside the palette. Use these colors interchangeably. No need to follow whether it was meant for brow bone, eyelid or crease.

Having oily skin, I always have trouble finding a makeup that will last throughout the day. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush (Natural beauty) is a keeper! The payoff is outstanding. Read separate review here.

This lasted me a good 8-9 hours. Not bad, not bad at all!

My mascara go-to is from a cult brand Mattese NYC- Fully Loaded Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara. I like that it really amps up my lashes to a flirty degree. I got this mascara from a local perfume store and found out that it’s exclusively sold in Ricky’s NYC stores in New York City. Fret not, you can order online, click here.

And  oh, As I am transitioning to my new online store name (previously Kakalina’s to, I needed a new business card-slash- earring card holder. I ordered this online two weeks ago. Here’s what I came up with:

These business cards are free- just pay for the shipping cost.  I paid $8 for 250 pcs.
Try it out, I got these from Vistaprint.

On the side, I have been re-designing my old clothes, check out what I did with an old halter top.
