Snap shot Sundays teal cardigan

Todays snapshot sundays was taken awhile ago. Its another comfortable everyday look. I love oversized cardigans when its cooler outside, they are so easy to throw on over a tshirt or tank and always look cute. Whats even better is when you can get them for this teal one I have on, I found it on sale for $9 at walmart!  Today I have on skinny jeans but a pair of leggings or even a maxi skirt would look cute paired with a longer cardigan.

Snapshot Sundays Crops and Zig Zags!

One of my favorite things to wear right now are lightweight palazzo pants and a crop tops. I've also been wearing  a ton of maxi skirts too because both options are super comfortable and you always look somewhat dressed up without even trying.

I am loving the lace detailing on the crop top! 

Pants: Last year from Body Central (these are cute)
Crop Top: JC Penny (Similar)
Watch: Michael Kors
Wedges: Not shown due to the fact that I forgot to take a photo of them before and I broke them later that day,lol (similar to what I had)

Hope Everyone Has A Great Week!!

Sephora "Escape To Rio" rouge cream lipstick in Flamingo

 Sephora Spring/Summer 2014 "Escape to Rio"collection. This Collection consists of 4 very bright cream lipstick shades a powder bronzer ( which is sold out) and two gift sets, one containing some very bright nail polishes and another containing 2 liners, 2 polishes a bronzer and a self tanner. The only thing I purchased from this collection is one of the lipsticks because they are so bright I was not sure if I would wear it enough to purchase the other 3 BUT I did swatch all of the  lipstick colors. :)  The two gift sets are pretty and I am thinking about purchasing the one with the self tanner to see how well it works.  Anyway...On to the swatches...:)

         Escape to Rio collection creme lipstick in Flamingo:


                                       All 4 Shades of the collection together:

Hot Bikini~ Bright fuchsia  cream shade
Flamingo~ Bright pinky/coral cream shade
Samba~ Bright orange cream shade
Cougar ~ Bright pink cream shade

                                                      Me wearing Flamingo:


Price: $12.50 USD

The formula of this lipstick is creamy yet thick. The best way I have found to apply this lipstick is using a dabbing motion rather than a normal sweeping motion as the sweeping motion does not place the product onto the lips well and causes it to concentrate in certain sections of your lips while other sections look very sheer. 

How long does it stay:
Wearing this lipstick alone lasted about 2-3 hours before I needed to reapply.

My Thoughts:
This lipstick is very creamy and highly pigmented! The color is a mix between a bright pink and a bright coral which is perfect for the summer months. The two photos above show how the color may look either bright pink or bright coral depending on the lighting you are in. It also has a slight tropical vanilla smell that I find very nice. The application is a little tricky at first and if you use a lip liner underneath it goes on a lot better. The formula did not dry out my lips and as the lipstick wore off it left a slight stain behind. All in all I am loving this lipstick and I know I will get some use out of it this summer!

$18 USD
$39.50 USD

SnapShot Sundays. Vintage 70's Wrap Skirt from Surcees

 If you've read any of my other Snapshot Sunday's posts then you know that I am obsessed with my local vintage store called Surcees and this post shows off a cute wrap skirt I found there. (Actually I found 3 but I only bought 1... I think I'm going to go back and get another one). I love wearing skirts, preferably long ones because they are so comfortable ( haven't you heard that maxi skirts are like crotchless yoga pants?). It is also pretty windy where I live and short skirts are a disaster waiting to happen...I'm not fond of flashing strangers my goods, ya know? :) So I stick to what I like best and its a nice long skirt!

                                                             Here's how wore it:

The skirt wraps around your body and ties in the back. I had no issue with this skirt falling down or coming untied. once I tied it, it stayed put all day.

Wet n Wild Limited Edition Spring 2014 8 Pan Palette in Walking the Red Carpet

 After an agonizing drive around town in search for the limited edition Wet n Wild walking the red carpet 8 pan palette from their new spring collection I finally found it ( 5 drugstores later) for around $4.99 at Walgreens. Needless to say I was beyond excited and I got there just in time because they only had 1 left so I had to snatch it up.

                                      Wet n Wild, Walking the Red Carpet Swatches 

(top to bottom)
Browbone shade~ A pale pink matte that on my skin looks a little peachy/white
Eyelid shade~ A beige semi matte
Crease shade~ A warm taupe with a satin finish
Definer shade~ A dark brown matte with tiny traces of bronze glitter ( once used the glitter appears to be on the surface and the underlying color looks more of a matte dark brown)

(top to bottom)
Browbone shade~ A frosty white
Eyelid shade~ A gold shimmer with gold sparkle flecks. This color can be somewhat sheer. I have found that using your finger and packing this color onto your lid helps intensify the gold.
Crease shade~ A very pretty copper/bronze shimmer
Definer shade~ A semi matte milk chocolate brown with gold sparkle.

Once again Wet n Wild has hit the mark with the wonderful pigmentation on these shadows. Like I stated earlier the gold shade is somewhat sheer but it can be built up to make a beautiful golden glow on the eyelids. All of the shades in the Walking the Red Carpet palette are super smooth and blend easily. I have a feeling, I am going to be using this palette a lot this summer. I mean, who doesn't want to look like a bronze goddess all summer long? Right? :)

  Were you able to get you hands on the new Wet n Wild spring 2014 collection?
