Hello fellow makeup junkies!! Welcome to my blog - A Daily Dose of Kaartehan (kaartehan = vanity)... This is my tiny slice of the world wide web where I celebrate being a girl & also where I store my boo-hoos & blah-blahs... I am a mother of 2 awesome boys who loves makeup & anything pretty... I am a certified MUA not MakeUp Artist, but a certified MakeUp Addict... If you are looking for a good read, hence the title of this blog, you are in the wrong place... So get out!! LOL... otherwise, thanks for droppin by & I hope you enjoy my blog!
and what better way to spend Thanksgiving Day than to learn how to be truly thankful OR just to shop til you drop....... there's a wole bunch of good sales goin on right now but this one excites me the most....

I really wish I have money to spend on this right now but I am still so jobless & so broke... the money that I have right now will be spent only on Christmas presents for my boys... so I guess that makes it ok.... well, just wanted to share this cool sale with you ladies incase you don't know about it yet & to say 'Happy Thanksgiving day!!!'
stopped by Wal-Mart today to get some stuff for the house... as usual, I had to stop by the make-up aisle, otherwise, I, my self would think there's something terribly wrong with me... I just picked up these 3 oh-so pretty pink things.... coz again, if I don't, I would feel awfully weird... LOL

a little review on this palette:
I.M.O. this palette is just ok... I mean I liked this look, it's very simple, not too dramatic than what you thought the colors in this palette would deliver after just swatching it... but the color pay off was actually not that good, especially the darker colors - Groupie(purple) & Motorhead(grayish black).... so you really have to work on packing on the colors & you would really need a good base to help intensify the colors... I expected to like the darker colors since they are the main focus in this look but it was actually the other way around... I liked the lighter colors (Believer & Confessional) instead, they are more pigmented than the other 2 main colors... this palette was also no bueno in terms of fall outs, I mean there wasn't really much but since Believer(used as a brow bone highlight) have glitters, some got stuck on my brows & I know noone likes looking like a christmas ornament... & there was also a little bit of fall out with the Motorhead(used on Outer Corner)... so I would consider this palette as a miss more than a hit... I personally feel like I just wasted 500 precious Beauty Insider points on this palette... I should've saved up my points & waited for better ones... another big 'oh effin well!!!'....
