a note from me + quote of the week

Happy Friday, y’all!

It has been a long week for me.  I didn’t go to bed before midnight every day.  So much to do and so little time.

This weekend I hope to rest, cook, bake and spend quality time with my kids. If I never leave the house I will be okay, you ever feel like that?  Have  great weekend and enjoy the quote of the week; I adore Anna Wintour. xo, Pascha

{MAC} A Novel Romance

Originally wasn’t impressed with this Limited Edition release from MAC…until I started seeing the swatches. Thank goodness for store credits, I swatched all the lipsticks but only Hearts Aflame caught my eye and picked up a nude-ish shadow (my addiction) named Pure Flash! Love the feel of this eyeshadow…like a sponge.

I’m sick with a cold so no swatches until I’m better. Did you get anything from the A Novel Romance Collection?IMG_1681.JPG

New! {L’oréal} The Wild Side Collection

L'oreal, The Wild Side Collection, Lip Lacquer, limited edition, Walgreens, new

How cute is the packaging on these lippies? Saw the display when I was in Walgreens yesterday. The formula of these glosses are great and features 6 great color picks for Fall. These are limited edition. My favorites are of course 304 and 306. It was hard to choose and I was only getting one so I got the deeper red of the two, 306. Check out the swatches below:

{Karma Wellness Water} Review

Karma Wellness Water, Karma Culture LLC

In my forever quest to be healthier, I picked up one of these Karma Wellness Waters to try during my latest visit to Marshall’s.  When I picked up the water, I didn’t really pay attention to it, I just like cutesy crap. Can I tell you I did not know how to open it?  I ended up just unscrewing the whole cap. Have you tried this stuff?  It takes some getting used to…it in no way shape or form tasted like Orange Mango, but if I’m truly drinking vitamins, I’m all in!  Someone on Instagram said Green Tea is her favorite so hopefully, I can try that flavor next.  The highlights?  6 times the vitamins and only 20 calories.  I would definitely repurchase this water.  Learn more about the brand/product here at Karma Wellness Water.

{Milani} Bella Eyeshadow – Review

Milani Bella Eyeshadow, Milani Cosmetics, Review, makeup, swatches
I was minding my business at CVS and saw the Milani display and thought of alllll the hype about these shadows on Instagram. Being the junkie that I am (and the Buy One, Get One 1/2 off sign) I thought I’d give them a try. Overall, I grade them a C and I am reminded why I don’t fool with drugstore products. See the captions below each photo for more of my thoughts and please share your thoughts on this post and/or your experience with these shadows.

They were easy to apply but I found that they were not “rich in color.” I chose the Cobalt blue because I thought it would be bright…not at all. It was dull and took multiple rubs to get a deep color. The wear was decent. I did not try them wet because I was over it.  I returned them all in the end.

06 Bella Espresso. My favorite out of the 4.

23 Bella Copper. A great copper color but did not like on my skin tone. This one had great color payoff.

07 Bella White. Because I have no white shadow. This was powdery and had bad color payoff. A lot of rubs to get color.

25 Bella Cobalt. The most disappointing. It tok a million rubs and the color was terrible on my lid. It swatches better. Powdery texture. Was messy when applied.
