Products I used:
Revlon ColorStay Base Coat 
Pure Ice Emerald Crush
Sassy+Chic Nail art yellow flower
Milani Quick Shine Top Coat 

I have been wanting to wear Emerald Crush since I found it at Big lots. I really love this glitter polish and its only needs two coats to be opaque by itself. You know I had to added more to this mani so I added this yellow flower from Sassy+chic which was perfect. If you love green and glitter polishes you need to find this one to add to your collection.

Key West and Flower Mani

Hello my MJF stars,
I have another mani for manicure Mondays. I work this mani when I was in Hawaii and I did not have chance to get to many pictures of it.

with flash

Products I used:
Revlon ColorStay Base Coat 
Milani Key West
Nail Art White Glitter Flower
Milani Quick Shine Top Coat 

I bought Milani Key West awhile ago and never wore it and I thought it would nice to wear on my trip to Kauai an Island of Hawaii because Milani's nail polishes last a long time with out chipping and this one did not disappoint. Its such a pretty metallic shimmery teal green. I thought it was pretty by itself but I thought it would looks pretty with this white glitter flower that shifts pink as you can see in the photo. If you can still find this color and you love teals you need to pick it up. 

I hope you enjoyed this weeks mani for manicure Monday.

First Eye Look: Wonder Woman Paradise Eye-land Eyeshadow Set

Hello my MJF stars,
I'm here to show you my first eyeshadow look using the Wonder Woman Paradise Eye-land Eyeshadow Set.

NYC City Proof eye primer 
Wonder Woman Paradise Eye-land Eyeshadow Set:
Olympia: Brow Bone 
Wisdom: Eyelid
Heroic Beauty: outer v 
Spitfire: Crease
Klean Color Beauty Garden Waterproof liquid eyeliner black 
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara Black 

I really like the Wonder Woman Paradise Eye-land eyeshadow set. The eyeshadows go together in that the colors complement each other and the blend with out being blending away. I tried this new eyeliner by Klean Color which I'm not a fan of. Every time I would try to draw it on it would ball up and crack so after trying to fix it as you can see the line was not straighten because pieces of eyeliner broke off. I might have to try it again and if it does it again its going in trash. Besides that I really like how this eye look came out.

Review: Wonder Woman Paradise Eye-land Eyeshadow Set

Hello my MJF stars,
I'm here to review the Wonder Woman Paradise Eye-land Eyeshadow Set which is a limited edition form Walgreens. This set is $6.99 but I got it on sale for $2.99 which is nice. So lets get into what I think about this 8 pan eyeshadow palette.
Front in box
As I said before I love the art work its so bright and colorful like a comic book.

back of box
closed front
Inside palette out of box
back with names of eyeshadows
Wonder Woman vs. Disney Villains:

Wonder Women 8 pan eyeshadows vs. Disney Villains Ursula 8 pan eyeshadows
I wish they put the Wonder Woman design they have on the mirror on the out side like they did with Disney villains as you can see above. Or some kind of design beside being just red. I really like the have names of eyeshadows on the back.

Lets get into the eyeshadows right.

Here is me swatching them if you like to see them on video:


Swatches no primer

As you can see in the picture of the swatches the dark colors are not very pigmented which is a bummer which mean they will need a primer and will have to be built up to get the color you want which ok for some. There is a mix of finishes in the eyeshadows which is nice to see because these can be used everyday if you don't like bright color like the villains which was all shimmer and bright colors as you can see above. I really like Wisdom, Strength, Heroic Beauty, Spitfire, and Spirit of Truth. I really like this palette even more the beauty book. If you want one thing from the Wonder Woman collection and you love eyeshadows I would recommend this eyeshadow palette. I think this a nice 8 pan eyeshadow palette. It has wearable colors for everyone and it had naturals as well as some color. I also think it has a good price point for what you get.

Electrified Web and Seychelles Sand Mani

Hello my MJF Stars,
I have another mani for manicure Mondays. This week I used two Revlon nail polishes for my mani. So lets get into this weeks mani right?!

with flash

no flash outside lighting

Products I used:
Loreal One Stop Base Coat
Revlon Electrified web
Revlon Seychelles Sand
Milani Quick Shine Top Coat

I really love Electrified Web its a duo chrome orange which is pretty by itself but I had to do a few accent nail with Seychelles Sand. I thought Seychelles Sands was really pretty in the bottle but when I applied it to my nail it was really goopy and hard to work with. Also a couple days later it chipped  which was bummer. It made me not a fan of the Seychelles Sand. I might have to thin it out with nail polish thinner and see if that helps it. Any ways both of these nail polishes looks pretty together and I have happy how mani came out until Seychelles sand chipped.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks mani for manicure Monday.

First Eye Look: Wonder Woman Comic Beauty Book

Hello my MJF Stars,
I'm here to show you my first eye look using the Wonder Woman Comic Beauty Book.
I actually did two eye looks in one because I want to do a reddish brown and a blue eye look using this beauty book.
 right and left eye look

Right Eye

Left Eye
Products I used:
Both eyes: Bulletproof Eyeshadow primer

Right Eye Look: Amazon Princess - eyelid
Emancipation- crease
Legendary Pink- brow bone and inner corner 
Secret Identity- outer v
Milani liquif'eye 08 blue- lower lash as base for Marine Ultra

Left Eye Look: Modern Age- eyelid
Marine Ultra- crease
Valiant- outer v
NYC City Proof waterproof eyeliner 932 Dark brown as base for Emancipation 

Both eyes:
Warrior Black Eyeliner
Eylure Volume N 101 eyelashes
Covergirl Plumpify Bastpro very Black- top lashes only

I was really bummed that Amazon princess was an over spray and the glitter was gone in one swipe. Its still a pretty color but it would even prettier if it had the glitter. The eyeshadows blended well and there was not too much fall out which is nice. The eye primer in this beauty book was ok buy not the best. I really happy how both of these eye looks came out. I also love these new eyelashes that I tried by Eylure. 

Which eye look you liked better?? Let me know below.

Review: Wonder Woman Comic Beauty Book

Hello my MJF Stars,
I had many MJF stars wanting me to do a review on the Wonder Woman collection so I'm here to share my thoughts about the new Wonder Woman Comic Beauty Book only at walgreens. Ever since I saw this collection I had to get my hands on the beauty book and the eyeshadow palette. I will be reviewing the eyeshadow palette after the beauty book. 
So lets get into what I think this comic beauty book.

Cover of Beauty Book

Back of Beauty Book

Side of Beauty Book
I really love the art work on this beauty book it really looks like a Comic book from DC but with makeup. You know I love blue and Stars which is all over this Comic Beauty Book.

Inside Comic Beauty Book
In this Comic beauty book has 9 eyeshadows, a blush, Black liquid eyeliner, eyeshadow primer, lip stick and dual ended sponge tip applicator. It also have mirror like the other beauty books but this time its looks like a a comic book which so cool.


Beauty Guide under mirrior
Just like the other beauty books this one also had beauty guide for beginners or for some ideas how to use the makeup items which tells how to get the Wonder Woman's look for daytime and nighttime hero.

Close-up makeup inside Comic Beauty Book
So lets get into the swatches:

Eyeshadow swatches

Eyeshadows swatches, eyelid primer, eyeliner, and lip stick

All of the swatches are with out primer and one swipe of the eyeshadow and or blush. 
Here is me live swatching them:

I did an eye look using the eyeshadow and will be posting it after this review so I have an idea of how most of the items in the beauty book performed.

As you can see by the swatches the eyeshadows that some of them are kinda sheer which is a bummer and Amazon Princess has an over spray which I was really sad about because it was to pretty in the pan. I wish the gold color eyeshadows were more yellow then brown and that Amazon Princess was not an over spray. The first six that swatched above were nice but the last three the darker/ blue colors were disapponting. I know I sound like I putting the beauty down but with that said they perform differently with a primer which they have given in this beauty book. You can get pigmentation with these eyeshadows with the primer which I used in my eye look. The blush is pretty but it not a bright shade. The primer is ok and does the job but it not my favorite. There is a little bit of fall out with eyehadows but thats not a big deal to me. I really like the black eyeliner called Warrior black with is a liqud eyeliner with brush tip and drys matte. The last thing we get is a lip stick in Amazonion Red which is very pigmented and a nice pinky red color.


If you would ask me if I would buy this beauty book now that I know how it performed proably not but the collecter in me say yes.
So if you are not a fan of Wonder Woman you might want to skip this one.
If you love Wonder Woman you might want to get it, just to add to your collection.

So lets see what this weeks mani. 

with flash

no flash outside lighting

Products I used:
Revlon Colorstay Base Coat
Revlon Colorstay Coastal Surf
Pop-arazzi Sparkle-fetti
Milani Quick Shine Top Coat

This weeks mani I wore Coastal Surf by revlon which I love because its a pretty light sky blue cream. Its a two coater and great formula which most revlon color stays have. Its pretty just by itself but you know me I love glitter so I added Sparkle-fetti by Pop-arazzi which is pretty by itself too but looks even better on top of Coastal Surf. If you love blue nail polishes you totally need Coastal Surf just saying. :0)

Walgreens Haul

Hello my MJF stars,
I have another haul from walgreens and I happy to show you it because I found the Wonder Woman collection that I posted on my ig awhile ago.


I went to two different walgreens because the first one had a few items. At the first store I got the Wonder Woman comic beauty book which was $11.99 which is more than last beauty books that was $9.99. I don't why they marked up price? They were sold out of the Wonder Woman Paradise eye-land eyeshadow palette so I had the girl call over to the other walgreens and they had one left that I had them hold for me. So  I went over there and  got it which it range up on sale for $2.99 which was cool that I got it on sale because it was $6.99.

I will be posting a live swatch and a review of each on my youtube channel and here on the blog soon.

I hope you enjoyed see my haul.
Did you find the collection yet and did you pick any up or planning on buy any of the collection let me know below.

99 Cents Only Store Hauls

Hello my MJF stars,
I know I told you that I might not post today because I'm sick but I'm feeling little bit better today. Also since I bought some things from 99 cents store that is star wars items and its Star Wars Day I would post these hauls.


In this haul I just got three items which is a old school boom box container for $1.99 which I got for my nail polish collection. I also got the tool essentials 3 pc d- ring set. The last thing I got was this Pillow pets mini dream lites in zippity zebra which was the last one. I wish they had the unicorn too but they only had a few left. :0( I hope they get more in. They usually cost around $7 crazy.




In this haul I went back to get more of the containers that I got in last haul by they were all gone. :0( But of course I found other things that I could not pass up. They got more of the $1.99 plush throw 50" x 60" so I had to get two. You know I love stars so I got the pink one with stars and the one with Scottie dogs for my dogs. I found the Hobby Knife by Tool Essentials which I paid more than 99 cents for my other that I lost so I got this one in case I need one. They also got more of the drug store brand makeup and I only picked up a few items. I got loreal nail polish in totally d'accord, Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 hr foundation in 100 ivory which I hope is right color for me it was hard to tell. I also got Rimmel London show off lip lacquer that I have been wanting to try in 200 comet. If you buy any the lip products from 99 cents store make sure the seal has not been broken as you can see this one is still sealed. As you can see I forgot to put in the first picture so I took separate picture. The last two makeup items I got was two of the Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Numbskull and Out of line which I took a close up picture below. The last two things I got was $1.99 each and they are Star Wars Lite Force Action lite that are mini light sabers in a blind bag which you can get a Darth Vador, Yoda, and or Luke Skywalker lightsaber. 



In this haul I went back to get four more of  Star Wars Lite Force Action lite that are mini light sabers in a blind bag which you can get a Darth Vador, Yoda, and or Luke Skywalker light saber. They were $1.99.

If you want to see which ones I got check out my video of me opening the blind bags:

Walgreens and Target Hauls

Hello my MJF Stars,
I two little hauls from Walgreens and Target. So lets get into what I got from Walgreens first.


I went into Walgreens to see it they got the wonder woman collection in yet but they did not. So I went in looked at what was left over from Easter and I found this cute 5 inch peeps plush bunny and 4 pack of peeps candy for $1.49 was $4.99 with 70% off so I had to get it. I also found the Wet N Wild display and they had a few items left. They had the highlighters but I thought $4.99 was little to pricey for a wet n wild highlighter but I did get the last eyeshadow palette which was To In-Di-O I Go Go for $2.99 which is the one that wanted so I was so happy to find one. 


In this haul from Target in which I finally found Disney Tsum tsum Lip Smackers  Stitch Blueberry Wave flavor for $4.89. So if you could not find them during Christmas they are restocking them and putting them with the rest of the lip smackers lip balms.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my hauls.

Products I used:

Klean Color Pastel Teal
Island Girl 1407A

I have been want to wear Pastel teal which is a beautiful cream pastel teal. Its close to wet n wilds sky me mine which is more blue and pastel teal is more green. Its pretty by itself but I thought it needed glitter so I used 1407a which is a pretty iridescent rainbow hex glitter. They look so pretty together and then I said it needs more so I added the little purple star. I really love how it came out.
