Man oh man!  I was chuckling at all of your comments on Instagram about her legs being open.  Let’s saaaay that this is her creativity. Yeah…her ART.  Let me share what I do know:

This  limited edition, hot pink lipstick and lipgloss (with sparking pearl) will cost $16 each.  Available January 22, 2015 in the great old USA and internationally on February 12, 2015.

SMH, I don’t care for Miley Cyrus but it is for a good cause. All the money (every cent) collected will go to the MAC Aids Fund to support those living with HIV and AIDS.

I have seen no swatches and I have already stepped out my conservative box and bought Kelly Yum Yum; which by the way I won’t wear out in public – it is so bright!  It is in-my-house-pretty.  HOWEVER, I may be able to get down with the lipgloss.  Time will tell.

Besos, Pascha

Review: {Tarte} Lights, Camera, Lashes

So yaaaay, I won this mascara in a giveaway last month.  I was so excited to try it.  I never liked the packaging but I have not tried anything by Tarte. True to me this review is short and sweet.  As always please share your comments and or questions in the comments area.

Packaging: Bulky and why leather?  I guess…why not?  LOL

Formula: I found it to be non-coating and flaky.  It took multiple applications to get it on my lashes.  It was so bad I started to wonder how old it was. I can’t…just can’t…

Brush: I do like a big wand and this is a full medium-sized wand but all the mascara seemed to be at the tip.  I have long, full lashes so I like a clean sweep from the middle of the brush…nothing there, y’all!

The skinny:  I don’t like it.  I compare it to drug store mascara. Buy it if you dare.

Have you tried it?

Hi Fabbies!

My daughter Madisyn and I are so excited to have received the Clear Proof Vox Box  gratis to try.  Madisyn is not happy with her skin which flares up and she wants a clearer complexion.  This was the perfect Vox Box for her to try and I am grateful Influenster will let her try it instead of me.  7 day sot see results?  We will be the judge of this!

Here’s a quick video with our Before photo and unboxing of the kit; details included in the details area.  We will be back in 7 days for a follow up and again in 30 days for a complete run down.

{Dior Beauty} Holiday

Hi Luvs:

Yesterday I went down to Nordstrom after receiving a text from my favorite Dior rep.  She wanted to show me the eyeshadow palette’s from their Holiday collection.  Being the sucker I am for pretty nude eyeshadows I went down there to visit and play.  I love Dior beauty, their product line is one of my favorites. Palette 1 has 4  nude shadows, palette 2 has 6 shadows (4 nudes, a gold and black (sheers)), 2 lip glosses, a fabulous highlighter and a blush.  Call me picky…I don’t like palettes that put lipgloss and eyeshadows in same palette. Palette 1 is now on my Wish List! Please check out my swatches and photos below.  Which palette do you like better?

The Pasch Life: Getting Fit

Fitness, getting fit, exercise, Lifesum, health

The title should really say Getting Fit Again.  Ahhhhh, the struggle of balancing life.  I was going so strong with exercising daily but when school started back, I fell off.  Suddenly my gym time turned into Mom’s Taxi Time.  Little time is left for myself.  What happens?  I get stressed and BOOM, my body forces me to tend to myself.  What does this look like, you may ask?  I look frazzled and I get rude; ruder than normal (LOL).  I am short with my answers and require solitude, STAT.

A friend of mine this morning asked me what was on my agenda for today.  My answer? Finding my reset button.  Grateful for a flexible work schedule I was able to tend to myself this morning.  I did some cardio on my personal trampoline, attended my weekly Small Group (so good for my soul) and took a 2 mile run/walk.

I have also started exercising with one of my awesome followers from Instagram, Laurie, and we send each other simple texts each day just checking in on the day’s fitness goals and updating each other in those efforts. I recently downloaded Lifesum, an app that allows me to keep a food diary and track my exercise.

My daily goals are simple because if they get lengthy…I get uninterested:

  1. maintain my momentum/Laurie
  2. do something physical
  3. track my activity with Lifesum

Any tips for me? I’d love to hear them!  Thanks for reading.  xo, Pascha

 

Ombré Lip

I can’t believe I am just now trying an ombré lip. This is why I try to do challenges that are beauty based.
Not only was it easy…I love the end result! More ombré lips for me!!IMG_3392.JPG
Products used: MAC Lavender Whip, MAC liner in Currant, Givenchy Black Plum.

Favorite Coral Lipstick

Oh wow, I am really not a fan of anything in the orange family but I do have one coral lipstick that I like from MAC. The formula is a Cremesheen and the name is Saigon Summer. In the spring and summer I like to wear because it adds a slight coral tint to a nude lip look. Sadly it takes work for me to wear it and I often top it with a complementary lipgloss and I must use a neutral colored liner to pull it off. IMG_3269.JPG

Best Nude Lipstick Ever + Lipstick That is Always in My Bag

Being a lipstick lover I am truly enjoying this #31GorgeousLips Challenge by Gorgeous in Grey. Day 6: Best Nude Lipstick Ever and Day 7: Lipstick that is always in my bag goes to MACs Fresh Brew.

Can I tell you how much I love this lipstick? It is theeeee perfect nude for me. It’s finish is a lustre and it goes on smoothly. No mirror nor lip liner needed–it is perfect! Do you have favorite nude lipstick?

My New(est) Lipstick

Day 5: My new(est) lipstick.
My sweet daughter brought me these Barbie Ultimate Lipstick Sets from Forever 21. IMG_3024.JPG
As you can see below, the “pink” is a lip balm and the “fuchsia” is more of a purple. These go on feeling great and they are moisturizing.

IMG_3034.JPGStay tuned for a giveaway later this month for a chance to win a box of these pretties for yourself. xo
