What I'm Wearing

I've bee so busy lately but I haven't  forgotten about you, I promise! Here is a collage of the colors I've been wearing as of late.

L2R: Stolen Kisses with flash, One Big Happy Fame-ily with flash, One Big Happy Fame-ily without flash, & lastly Respect the World feat. Oscar without flash.

Stolen Kisses is actually one of my fave polishes [a magenta red] but unfortunately it's a struggle to get one because my daughter split most of it last year and I can't seem to find a replacement anywhere =( Oh, I had been wearing this for a week and half before I took the pic, you can see my edges the tiniest of bits but no chips =)

One Big Happy Fame-ily is the latest of my polish from the KKolor II series, I definitely will be going back for more. I really like this soft yet vibrant lilac with it's silver shimmers. So yummy!

Respect the World and I have a apathetic love relationship, lol. Sometimes I look at it and adore it and then most times I look and am absolutely bored with but my husband picked it out so I slapped it on last time and put Oscar on my pinky to make me smile.

Guest Blogger: The Pretty Pisces

Hello beauties!! Today I have a special treat for you! A guest blogger from my BFF & consequently the blogger who peer pressured me into creating a blog of my own [Thx, Ash! Muah!!].  Without out further ado, Ashley of ~*The Pretty Pisces*~.

"Hey Karma's readers!! I'm Ashley from The Pretty Pisces and I want to thank Karma so much for inviting me to guest post on her blog. Today I want to show you how to get an easy smokey eye with a pop of color! 

I'll be using the Wet N Wild 6 pan palette in "Lust", but you can use any shadows that are dupes.

First, apply an eyeshadow primer and apply a gray base to your lid. I'm using a no-name cream shadow.

Next, apply a purple cream shadow in the cream. I'm using Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Painted Purple. You want to use bases to make the shadows really pop.

Using a fluffy crease brush, blend shadow #3 into the crease over the color tattoo. Next, pat shadow #4 all over your lid. So there's not a harsh line, blend where the two colors meet.

Place shadow #5 into the outer corner to add depth. You can blend it into your crease more if that's the look you desire.

Use a shadow that's similar to your skin tone to buff out the harsh line of the purple and blend it into your brow for a slight highlight. I'm using a shimmery shadow by Black Radiance.

Apply your favorite eyeliner and mascara. Add lashes for a more dramatic look! Groom and fill in those eyebrows!

Since the eyes are dramatic, I wanted to keep the rest of the face neutral. I used Wet N Wild's Megalast lipstick in Mocha-licious and Wet N Wild's blush in Mellow Wine.

Thanks so much for reading! Check out my blog if you liked this look! "

Thank you Ashley! Great post, and nice picture tutorial. =) Feel free to stop by anytime!
And if YOU, my beautiful subscribers and fellow bloggers, would like to be come a guest blogger, all you have to do is click on the tab above that says, "In 'Other' Words" or simply click the link provided. =)

SO I was going through my Lips bag and I realized that I have multiples of brands but I've never posted them so here's a quick run down.

First we have Urban Decay's Pocket Rockets, I've had these for years, lol. Let's visit Sephora for a refresher, What it is: Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss combines a girl's two favorite things: guys and gloss! With the tilt of a tube, your well-dressed man will be stripped to his undies (front and rear photos are included for your viewing pleasure!). The crème-brulee-scented formula slicks and shines your pout to pucker perfection, with each highly pigmented shade varying in opacity and finish. It also contains hyaluronic spheres that are known to improve cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill in lines and wrinkles.

Now, is all of this true, I'm not sure. Are they cute? Yes. Are they convenient? Yes. Are they lasting? Yes. 

Kirk: is an eco-friendly guy that comes in a sheer creamy nude, YUM!
Julio: is no longer with us so unfortunately I can tell you much besides he's a sheer glitter gloss
James: is  the emo-hipster that comes in a sheer hot pink with an ultraviolet glow
Click to enlarge
 Next up is Maybelline COLORsensational in 3 yummy colors: Toffee Tango, Pink Peony, & Red Revival

Lastly, Maybelline again in the pearl series: Bronze Beam & Coral Gleam

Bow Review

Hello beauties! It is way past my bedtime & I'm sure I will feel this in the morning >-< Oh wells =)

The other day, I briefly mentioned that I won a giveaway for my daughter, a beautiful bow from Brittany's Bows & More, well it has arrived and my daughter and I both love it and will definitely be ordering more. Actually I just placed an order for her lol. She saw the bows and said, "It's Doh-rah! It's Doh-rah, Moma!" LOL She adores Dora and since she's only 2 she enunciates like crazy, it's so cute.

Here are the pics. =)  I decided to play around with her hair to see which way I wanted her bow to be.

Fro =) OAN: Her smiles kills me, lol

2 puffs =) *Close-up

Her mini doo =)

One big puff *Close-up
 Okay, I tried to get one of a straight forward with the single puff but her smile would just not allow me to do it, lol I just would not put my baby out there like that with her crooked smile and squinted eyes lol.

So which style did you think I picked?

Teasers **UPDATES**

As I said before, I went to Sephora and treated myself to a few things that were on my wish list and I although it isn't much it was as usual expensive, for me anyway. I have an online order that is to arrive today [yay!!] and I just ordered something else. AH! I'm such a Sephora junkie!! But I couldn't resist! Not my fault they know my weakness [promo codes, points, & freebies] =(

I also went into CVS and snatched up Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam!! If you have been subscribe to me & my post &/or tweets then you know I've been searching for this and it has always been out! >_< But I  finally found my true love! I always knew Khloe & I were kindred spirits lol. Oh, and while I was there I grabbed 2 of the CVS exclusive Kardashian Kolors II.

Then I quickly, blindfolded myself in to Sally's grabbed this $5 jar of Olive Oil Edge Control and ran out before I got sucked into the bountifulness that is Sally's lol

ANNNNDDDD my first Julep nail mail came! Yay! I've been scoping Julep out for a while, indecisive but then I saw on The Nail Junkie's blog that I could sign up for a $1 this month!! I said swEet! And signed up and I was so surprised at how quickly it all arrived. Today is the LAST day that you can sign up for a $1 too! Don't miss out! Sign up here & use code "SHAREONFEB". =)
So I went to Sephora and got a couple of things on my wish list, yays! I signed up for Julep since this month was only at $1, click here & use code "SHAREONFEB", you only have 3 more days so hurry!! I also ran down to CVS and Sally's to check out some exclusives and hair products. I won't go into details just yet but here are pics, pics, pics!!

BUT! In an effort to make it up to you, I will tell you which products I used.

What I'm Wearing

Tonight I have on this gorgeous chrome color on my nails. My husband picked it out a few days back and since I hardly wear it and it is really gorgeous I decided to let it stay for awhile, such a shocker. Annnyyywhoo! I bring to you Sand Dunes...
With flash

Without flash
Isn't it pretty?! It's like this chrome-y beige but it has a pinkish undertone to it in person and it really does have a sandy look to it. If you are sleeping on petites, don't. They are very affordable and come in a variety of colors at Wal-Mart. The formula goes on really well, smooth and it comes with a standard brush. Since this is a chrome, it's a one-coater but of course, I went two =)

Oh my brightness! *Updated*

Okay, so now that I've calmed down, lol. Yesterday I was looking through my shadows trying to decide what looked I wanted to go with while out with the girls but that didn't happen so the possibilities were endless!! And I settled for a brightly summery look. =)

If you want to know the specific products I used, or see a video on how I did it, ask and I will post but for the cliff notes version: I created a simple but bright, yellow winged eyes, topped that off with purple lashes, contoured cheeks, and vividly show stopping red lips.
*original* I was feeling very summer-ish today so I decided to make a beat face full of colors. Chhhhhheccccckkkk itt ouuuuuttttttttt!!

I have yellow eyes, purple lashes, and red lips. WHOOP WHOOP!!
I love how my brows look

You can see a bit of everything here. Check out those lashes!

"Your face dirty!"

Hey beauties! How are y'all on this fine bleak & rainy day? I bring to you today the wonders of Boscia. =)

Last night, I decided to use my Boscia Luminizing Black Mask to pamper my face while relaxing and watching Nitraa B on YouTube. While putting on my mask, my son [he's almost 4] came into the bathroom and looked at me and said, "Your face dirty! Your face dirty, Moma. You need to clean it." Of course, I laughed and sent him back into his room. LOL

Okay, sooooooo Boscia makes this awesome line of cleansing products, esp their black line. Ah! I love the tingles lol. This mask is so refreshing and pore cleansing, it's *sings* amazing! You should definitely try it. It's at Sephora [of course]. But wait, I'm getting ahead of myself. *breathes*

Is it weird that it looks like I have 3 fingers? LOL

Sephora describes the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask as "A groundbreaking, mineral-rich mask that peels off to deliver powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening effects.You can find this Boscia Luminizing Black Mask at Sephora [online or in-store] and it retails at $34

I'm inclined to agree. I absolutely love this stuff. I won't get into all the details of what's in or not in it, blah, blah, blah, that's what the link is for. HOWEVER, I can show you and describe to you how I use this mask.

Wear Something Spar-Kylie

Natural & Flash
Layered on Pink Friday
Wear Something Spar-Kylie is one of the few Kardashian Kolors from Nicole by OPI that I thought was a must have, Listen to Your Momager! was one that I snagged right away. This is a pretty, glittery rose-colored pink with multi-colored, microscopic pink glitters inside which does, indeed, cause this polish to sparkle!

I have to admit that I am sorely disappointed in the application, idk maybe I got a bad brush, but the application was thick and uneven. On top of that I did these nails last night at around 10:30 & as you can already see a little on my ring finger, it's starting to chip [and that's just the one you can see in the pictures]. I had such high hopes because it is a pretty color but is it worth the hassle? The only good from it is how quickly the polish dried.

Overall? C+ Would I buy it again? Probably not. Have you had any issues with your Wear Something Spar-Kylie?
