RAVE: My Highland Honey


A Tartan Tale Presents...


A beautiful blush called...

MY HIGHLAND HONEY
 
This blush is so so pretty! I actually never owned a orange shade of blush thats why I knew I needed it! 

When I went to my MAC store, I went right to the blush and told them what I wanted..

I previously ordered a bunch of goodies from this collection but totally skipped over the blushes!

So when the Makeup Artist was ringing me up, she had told me it was the last one they had there!
Which made me so happy to know that its definitely a "BIG HIT" since now there all sold out!

 
If you do have a chance to stop by your local MAC store, or MAC counter .. I think you should totally go to at least check it out! When I went I didn't even swatch it .. I saw the color, the name and grabbed it! hahha 




Here's a quick picture of how it looks on! It gives you such a nice warmth, without looking any like a oompa lommpa ! or however you spell it hehhee :)

I really do love it, and if its definitely a new favorite!

Its perfect for this time of year, its reminds me of fall .. and looks cozzy, comfy & warmth!

OPI Russian Navy


Hey OPI Lovers! I picked up a new nail polish last night when I went to target, and was inspired by the fall to pick up a dark color! I was looking around to see what they had (which wasn't much) I decided to go with the darkest color that they had. Most of the colors on the shelves were bright which was a total bummer.... I decided to go with OPI's Russian Navy.

Before I painted my nails I put on a coat of Sally Hanson's Beyond Perfect Protein Nail Stregthener... since I have very weak, flakey nails! (booooo)


The Nail Polish Was $8.00 which Is around the typical cost for a OPI nail polish. The prices range to where you buy them, to what collection to how big the bottle is!


The bottle in natural light almost looks black, with some slight purple glitter era-descent.


Taking a picture with a flash, gives it more of a dark navy blue color effect! Which I think reminds me alot of the ever-so-famous Metro Chic ... that has a what I like to call 2 Color effect. Where depending in the light it looks like 2 different nail colors. For me that makes me like the nail color that much more!

It makes me feel like I have a different type of color every time I look at it ... in a way it doesn't make me bored of having the same color!


The color pigmentation is amazing! All I used was one coat.. no top coat! Most of the times when I paint my nails I need at least 2 coats to help the color really show up... with OPI not always do you need 2 coats ... and with this color for sure you don't!

I will see by this weekend how long it lasts and will do another blog post telling you its life span (REVIEW)! hehe :)


hope you enjoy!

xoxo

Nicki Minaj Inspired

Nicki Minaj- See Right Through
click here to watch the official music video


I got the inspiration to do this look from Nicki Minaj, who always has over the top, gorgeous makeup. For her in this video, it was one of the more subtle looks I have personally ever her seen her wear. Its a gorgeous green color on her lid, which makes for a beautiful unique look.

For inspiration, when I saw the music video I thought that the look was so pretty that I had to do it myself. And on a side note... green brings out brown and hazel eyes! double ++

Makeup Organization

Hey Everyone!




So we all know those bins that everyone on youtube pretty much uses, well I kinda can't stand them. At first I loved them, they were the greatest thing but now my there like all lop sided and are hard to close. I get annoyed everytime i struggle with them.

I'm Pretty sure we have all seen these, 3 draw organizer draws by Sterilite.



So I watched a youtubers video, and I saw she bought a new set of draws, I have seen other youtubers with them but didn't know where to buy them.

The ones she was talking about were these:



Now I'm kinda confused if I should buy them, or maybe wait.. for another idea. The thing is I REALLY WANT THEM!
But Here's The Problem

A. They Don't Match My Room
B. I don't know how "strong" they are/long lasting
C. They are kind of a lot of money compared to the $5-$12 3 drawer
D. I don't know what else...


SO I NEED YOUR HELP!

WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD DO COMMENT BELOW!

Por favor <3>





Halloween Pictures!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
