The mother of eye shadow palettes.

I have purchased… the most amazing eye shadow palette. 

Let me tell you my biggest pet peeve. Buying a palette with fab colours… but when applied… there is no pigment. This makes me angry. Like hulk angry. Regardless… these anger issues of mine are all behind me. 

I bought this bad boy:

This palette has literally every shade you could ever want. I love that it ranges from neutral to vibrant rainbow-ish shades. I have literally tried them all. It comes in a case of three different trays that are removable, so it is basically three palettes in one. 

Image

120 shades of pure amazing. I can’t express this enough, you can literally create any look. The possibilities are endless, people. With the pigments being so strong, you only need to use a small amount. This makes me happy, since I am incredibly cheap. i hate chalky shadows. This palette was a reasonable priced and I have a feeling it will last me a long time. Not to mention, I have dropped it, and nothing has shattered (hallelujah!).

How beautiful are those shades? One day I look like a fairy princess, the next, super earthy. Check out a look I created with the purple hues.

You can purchase this beauty straight from Etsy on Colorora’s page:

Prepare to have your make-up life changed, and for so cheap too!

I’M NEVER AMBERRASSED

 

How FUN!? These high shine nail lacquers offer a transparent colour that can be worn alone, or layered over any shade to create some funky looks.

“Nail color is all about self-expression; apply Sheer Tints over your favorite OPI nail lacquer to achieve your dream shade, accent glitters and darks or transform cremes and shimmers,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI co-founder and executive vice president.

I’m interested to see how these will look on their lonesome… how would a yellow tone be on a bare nail? We will just have to wait and see. 

We have to wait until March for these bad boys. 

 

 

Coca- Cola … you’ve nailed it with this OPI collection (…get it?)

I cannot contain my excitement. I have great news, people.

Anyone that knows me at all knows I have a serious addiction. I cannot kick this addiction, no matter how hard I try. It has consumed my life. My name is Lindsay (“hi Lindsay”) … and I am addicted to diet coke

Anyways… back to me being excited. OPI has announced a new collection which involves … a partnership with COCA COLA

Image

This OPI line is going to be inspired by some of Coca-cola’s most recognized brands, including Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke, Sprite and Fanta. 

…. Diet coke. Yes. 

“As the global leader in the professional nail industry, OPI is thrilled to partner with the world’s top beverage company, The Coca-Cola Company,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder and Executive Vice President. “These two iconic brands truly deliver happiness in a bottle – whether it’s a refreshing, invigorating sip of Coke or a set of fingers and toes perfectly polished with OPI nail lacquer.”

How brilliant is this? I have high hopes for this collection. Sadly, we have to wait until June to try it for ourselves. Until then, we can just drink copious amounts of delectable diet coke. 

 

 

Spring is coming!

I have come out of a long winter hibernation to share some great news. My lazy self is jumping for joy (figuratively speaking…I’m not getting out of bed). “Why is she jumping for joy!?!?” is what the two people that actually read my blog are asking. Let me enlighten you. 

Spring is on it’s way. This is exciting for two reasons:

1. I live in Canada, people. Throwing boiling water in the air and watching it freeze before it hits the ground was quite popular where I’m from this winter. Yes, it was that fridged outside. There is also snow. A lot… of snow. This is all going to go away, and this puts a smile on my face. 

2. Spring = new hair trends. This, my friends, is why I am figuratively jumping for joy. My laziness is going to be winning this spring. Messy… is in. Effortless looks are what is hot for the upcoming months. Are you jumping? For joy?

Let’s go in to some detail about these trends. 

1. Messy braids!

Yes. I love a good braid. Now i could potentially braid my hair, sleep on it, get up in the AM and look trendy

How cute are these? Perfection is not what we are going for. One of my favourite products right now is Label M Resurrection Dust. This miracle powder will give you lift and texture, and will complete any messy look. Buy Label.m Resurrection Dust Here!!

Image

2. Ponytails! 

Low ponys are in for the spring. How simple and easy is that?

Image

Is this too boring for you? You are in luck, my friend. Accessories are in as well. Specifically, gold accessories. Stick your hair in a low pony, stick a barrette in there, put a bow on it, whatever. You are one trendy son of a gun. 

3. Mermaid waves

This is my favourite look. I rock this almost every day. Grab a wand curling iron and you are good to go. Blake Lively is one to look to for a good mermaid wave – get googling. 

Image

The chica on the right is rocking another look for spring – mixed textures. Straight and sleek at the root, mermaid-ish mid shafts and ends. Not sure about this one, but according to the big wig fashionistas, this is what you want to be doing when the flowers start bloomin’. Tousled hair is where it’s at! Go to sleep with braided hair, let it out in the morning and voila. 

 

On a side note – bobs are also huge for spring/summer 2014. This does not interest me, as I refuse to live an extension-free life. 

Lazy is IN. What more could a girl ask for?

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s that time again…

It’s that time of the year that we both love and hate. Movember is upon us. The one time of year where looking like a creepy pedo is accepted in the community. An excuse to grow a dirty ‘stache.

I’m totally okay with this because of the cause. If you are currently growing a moustache for the sake of Movember, be sure you support the cause and start a donation page on http://www.movember.com and spread the awareness on Prostate and Testicular cancer. If we are going to put so much energy towards this we need to do our part to try and find a cute for this. We all know how I feel about the “awareness” factor, see my Breast Cancer Awareness post, so again, support the cause, open up those wallets. I personally donate to all my friends Movember pages where they post pics of their hideous facial hair.

If you are going to grow a beautiful mustache this month, for the love of god please keep that sh** groomed. Check out this article on ways to do that and keep that stache looking dapper.

Here is a pic of me and my Movember beaut of a mustache. God, I look absolutely fantastic.

Pam’s Pixie

Ya ya ya I’m a few days late on this one, I’ve been slightly MIA, but for those of you who have not yet seen… The Baywatch babe Pam Anderson got a pixie cut.

Guys, I don’t know how I feel about this. Sure, she looks quite chic, if you will, but I’m not feelin’ the execution of this cut.

I like my long haired Pam.

Unreal colour work!

Unreal colour work!

Check this out! This is such talented work. I am totally inspired by this, perhaps I will go dip my head in Kool-aid ( kidding.. don’t get any ideas, it wouldn’t work).  Either way, colour blocking within the hair is coming more and more popular, especially with unnatural hair colours such as pink, blue, etc. I’m currently sporting some lilac ombre and loving it.

Click that link, get inspired. Try something new and add some colour to your boring hair (no offence).
