ladies & gentlemen... presenting.... the biggest cam whore!!!!


actually I did this look just to wear the Lakers colors so I could show my support..... hoping & praying that THEY WOULD FREAKIN WIN!!! but this was also a remake of one of the looks done at the MAC Class I attended back in April (see post HERE)... on look #3, which was the Grammy Award Celebrity look... they used Vibrant Grape, Goldmine, Shroom MAC eyeshadows & a darker lip color... I changed up the lip color... & since I don't have these e/s except for Goldmine, I decided to use the faux Hello Kitty palette I got last month.... I'm just not gonna mention who gave it to me, for privacy purposes... I got a few stuff from her, & didn't know what to do with them.. so I thought I'd give it a shot & see what's up....

so this is what the packaging looks like... I don't own any MAC palettes from the HK collection, so I don't have anything to compare this to...

just by looking at the shadows from the palette, they seem pretty pigmented

so, I swatched them (on top of a Revlon concealer)... & I was not disappointed... they are very pigmented & also offers a set of very vibrant colors....

just thought I'd compare them to a few of my eyeshadows... I only have a few MAC & none of them are purple... so I compared them to what I have that I feel are closely identical....

I must admit, the colors are great.. the only way you can differentiate these eyeshadows from the real thing is that when blended, the colors fade.... I mean, the pigments/shimmer - completely gone! all you'll have left on your skin is a matte version of that color.... also there's a lot of fall outs...

I won't knock 'em... but I won't buy 'em!

oh btw, I had my hair trimmed last Thursday... so here are a few pictures of the not-so-new do.... not-so-new coz I've had this style for quite a while now.. I've just been getting it trimmed... I really need a change of hairstyle... maybe I'll grow it out after summer time...

  5. Great look! I'm so glad they evened up the game and i HOPE they'll win Game 7. GO LAKERS!!!

    I did a look inspired by their team colors too. Check it out @

  6. Great FOTD Annettee, and those Lashes look great. I need to get me some of those!

  7. Hey Annettee, I was thinking about doing another look in honor of the Lakers making it ALL the way to Game 7! We should totally do another look!

    I have used all different kinds of things for my brows but so far I really like how Spiked Brow Pencil works for me. You can creat a great shape and make it more natural looking by brushing it out. And yes, it is by MAC but don't worry, they ALWAYS have that in stock so you don't have to keep debating whether or not to get it. O.o

  8. Love the eyes! Those palettes have great pigment!
