I have been a busy bee recently with so many great and busy things going on. Besides work and family events, I have been involved in a fabulous COUTURE FOR A CURE Fashion show in Washington DC, which raised money for Nadine Namoff's Woman of the Year Campaign (money goes to leukemia and lymphoma treatment and research). I have also been going to sporting events and spending very much valuable time with friends :-)

With that said, I missed you all very much and would love to update you on my recent favorite/Go-to products!!

Almay Nearly Naked Touch-pad Liquid Foundation - this is incredible...and funny enough, I used to use it in High School. I put just a little bit of this on before concealer application and final look is flawless!

Almay Smart Shade Concealer (in Light/Medium) with a breakthrough shade-sensing technology, which "starts out white and adjusts to right." So perfect under eyes and everywhere else. I've fallen for this one.

Mary Kay Concealer (in a black tube) color Beige 2 - This one is thicker in texture than Almay and still looks amazing under the eyes and everywhere else!

Eye Liner Pencil
Cover Girl Perfect Blend
MAC Smolder
Eyeliner Pen (Dupe of MAC's Penultimate)
Jordana's Eyeliner Pen (only $1.99 and amazing)

MAC Charcoal Brown - This color is perfect (for me). Instead of using a lot of different taupe's and browns on my eyelids at one time, I now only use a light nude color all over and this Charcoal Brown in crease, and it looks better than anything I've tried before (as far as neutral browns). This is also a great color to fill in the brows (for the light brown/medium brown hair).

Barry M 101 Lip Paint - Perfect pale/nude pink :-)

That's all for now, but please expect more Favorite Products Posts coming up shortly!

Kim Kardashian Queen of Kims Contest

Being the huge Kim Kardashian Fan that I am, I went ahead and braved up to enter her Queen of Kim's contest. Have you heard about it? Ladies and Drag Queens will be battling out for number one spot to be Kim's look-a-like. The winner will receive a phone call from Miss Kim herself as well as a bag of her favorite products.

I was going to go all out and re-create her look to the Nth degree, but because of the lack of time, I took one of my photos and did some work on it. The photo is 3 years old, and although my hair was darker then, I had to use a bit more of photoshop to tone the color down even more :-).

The end result is not completely like her (and why would it be...she is a unique girl), but at least I entered, right?

Has anyone else entered the contest? I'd love to see your photos!!

Also, what DO you think of the darker hair color? Maybe its time I go back to the natural dark, no?

My Apology!

My fellow bloggers,

I am truly sorry for not updating you much lately. I actually have so many pictures to show you and products to review, but I have been so busy for the past 2 weeks. So I apologize to you. The good news: I will post a few fun things very soon for you! Hold tight :-).
