O.C.C Sci-Fi Lullables Spring 2013 

O.C.C held a party for the launch of there new collection on Friday at there store location in New York City.  The collection have 6 new lip tars ($18) and 6 new nail polish ($10) that are anti metallic and gorgeous!! I really like the nail colors because it has a pop as for the lip tars there were only 3 colors that caught my attention.

The NEW Collection
LeeLoo - sparkly orange and gold metallic
Pond - bright royal blue (satin)
Batty - Black w/silver glitter
Electric Sheep - Metallic Lavender
Ripley - Olive Green w/Gold (Metallic)

My favorite is Pond and Batty!!!  I bought Batty for me and Electric Sheep for my sister.  I MUST go back for Pond!  I didn't test 'VIDEODROME' but it's described as a grey teal blue (satin).

L to R: 'Lovecraft' and 'Batty'
L to R: pink/lilac metallic & black metallic w/silver iridescent

L to R: Annika and Clockwise

sorry bad lighting....

'Pris' - beige metallic

I accidently deleted 'Zhora' thinking it was a duplicate to 'Annika' and 'Clockwise' since I couldn't get a good picture of it.  'Zhora' is described as a pale peach with gold/red metallic duo chrome.  Overall, all 3 strike a hint to 'Cha Cha' and 'Kava Kava' except it's not metallic.  Click on link below to see swatches: 

Model - Francisca

As always the O.C.C. party was a great turnout because I love the NEW collection.  The eye pigments are not included in the NEW collection but was incorporatedIt was a pleasure chatting with Francisca who informed me that O.C.C. is developing lip liners so we have to keep an eye open for that :)  Francisca was so sweet!! :)  I highly recommend to check it out.

Drugstore Haul (Maybelline/Milani)

***Sorry for the mess in the video***
*****My 1st Video*****

Maybelline's NEW Color Sensational Vivids lipsticks are beautiful!! I've seen it in different places priced from $6.99 thru $8.99, but Target has it for $5.99.  I had a $1 off coupon so I got my lipsticks for $4.99 each.  I was told Walmart also has it priced under $6.00.  The collection consist 10 colors and I bought 4.  Click  on the link below to see all the colors: 
I've been using these lipsticks almosteveryday mainly 'Vivid Rose' and 'Electric Orange' and I love it.  The packaging is nice, smells good and so is the formula because it works as a lipstain. It goes on with moist without drying your lips.
L to R: Electric Orange/Vivid Rose/Fuchsia Flash/Brazen Bery
Swatches: T to B (in order) - as mentioned above
Target was having a lot of products on clearance.  A Milani pencil caught my attention.  It was marked down to $3.00.  I describe it as a raspberry with glitter.
Milani Lip Flash (full coverage shimmer gloss pencil) '04 Photo Flash
I visit Ulta to pickup a few items and they were having a sale buy 1 and get the 2nd one 50% off with an additional $3.50 offI FINALLY found the NEW Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal.  There are 5 cream eyeshadows in this collection.  I bought 3 and a Baby Lip Balm.

L to R: Electric Blue & Inked in Pink

I had to buy the blue since it's my favorite color but it applies to dark for my taste.  Therefore, I used it as a base and applied a sky blue over it and it looked nice.  The pink is very pretty and is an "everyday" use color.  It reminds me of Make Up Forever Aqua Cream in shade #16.  I like Maybelline's packaging - except the jar is a bit heavy, but affordable.  As for M.U.F, the packaging is very light, but more on the high end.  Both products are smudge-proof, which is great especially for Spring/Summer (hot days).
Can you tell which swatch is Maybelline and Make Up Forever????
#60 Silver Strike

Baby Lip Balm 'Peach Kiss'
I love this lip balm - it smells like peach and feels 'delicious.'  At first, I was under the impression that lip balms work as a lip conditioner but it doesn't.  It only keeps your lips moist - that's it.  It goes on with a light peach tint.

I LOVE all products and highly recommend.  The products work great!!!!!

Pretty Accessories/Makeup using MAC

Jewel Headband
Khroma by the Kardashians

Let me tell you your brother is constantly making fun of me when I wear this. 

I love to wear this headband when I don't want to do my hair.  I bought it in the street for $10.00 as a gift during the holidays.  As you can see the gift was to me, lol, I just liked it too much :)

My local drug store (CVS) was having a sale on these beautiful lashes made by the Kardashian sisters called Khroma.  I love how dramatic it is and it reminds me of Velour lashes (  I paid $5.00 for the lashes and there were 3 different types of lashes.


  • Tarte Poreless Primer
  • Tarte and Neutrogina Foundation 'Medium'
  • Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer 'Medium'
  • Cargo Blue_Ray Powder 'Medium'
  • MAC blush 'Darkly My Dear' to contour
  • MAC blush 'Small Vanity'
  • MAC Extra Dimension Skin Finish 'Superb'
  • MAC 'Blonde' Brow Pencil

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Benefit Corrector Lemon Aid (base)
  • MAC e/s 'Mylor' all over the lid & up to brow bone
  • MAC e/s 'Chrome Yellow' on lid

  • MAC e/s 'Swiss Chocolate' on outer crease

I was mad because my gel liner is drying up so after applying it was clumping up my wing when I reapplied.  I used my Ingot Duraline and you can see one side look more dark and filled than the other side

  • Mehron lip liner 'Manderine'
  • Maybelline NEW Color Sensation 'Electric Orange' 

Happy Valentine's Day

I was playing with makeup the week of Valentin's Day (sorry I know this is late!) and came up with this look.  I wasn't too excited because it reminded me of MAC Fafi Collection (one of my favorite collections).  Moving forward my wig was moving out of place, lol.  I have too much hair :)
