Cargo Destination Gorgeous

Me and my friend Sherri were at Kohls yesterday and found this little gem on sale for $10.00 plus we both had Kohls cash so essentially it was free.


The only issue is I could not find hardly any swatches to know if it was even worth the ten bucks.

So when I got home I immediately cracked it open and did a swatch fest of the whole thing I was like meh.


This is just straight out of the box with no primer. The bottom 2 rows are very pretty so I would definitely pay $10, (or free in our case with the Kohls cash), but I would not pay $25.

I decided to break out one of my eye primers and test it even further.


It does have very pretty packaging!


This is the first row of shadows.


Second row of shadows.


Third row of shadows.


Fourth row of shadows.


Blushes (although I would call the second one a bronzy highlight type shade).


4 lip glosses which are very shear to kinda of non existent which was a bit of a bummer but you can build a little. Thinking smile


I hope that helps anyone out and about shopping this weekend or if you are wanting to spend your Kohls cash and run across this palette.

Have a great Saturday!! Red lips

New Project With Shabby Paints

I started painting this last weekend.


This thing is a beast and I have never liked the faux oak look but it’s functional so I did not want to get rid of it.

I did some research on chalk paint and from what I found Shabby Paints was the easiest to use with no sanding or buffing and  the top coat was easy peasy to use. So I found a local store that sold it and started my project this past Saturday.


My intentions were to paint the outside Saturday and then paint the inside Sunday but it was going so well I did two coats on the outside and one coat on the inside Saturday. I was regretting that Saturday night when my body was rebelling against me. Crying face



Sunday I woke up and started bright and early to finish the inside. I did the next coat and then the reVax clear coat and was done by noon.


I was originally going to paint the whole inside but decided I would let this cure for a few days and paint the back of the inside with some buffalo brown and add a little brown bronze shimmer mixed in it to make it pop.

I am feeling a little crummy today so I will have to wait for the last of this project to start. Sick smile But I will show you as soon as it is all done.

Makeup Monday- Nude Lips

I got this lip balm by NYX in the shade Marshmallow back in December in my Ipsy bag. It is described as a pure nude and boy is that on point.

I use it a lot under lipsticks or liners to create a nice nude base, but Friday when I put it on I was like where did my lips go and why don't I ever wear this by itself.

I mean yes my lips vanish but it is still a pretty lip balm for those days when you just don't want to wear liner or lipstick or just want a nude lip but want some hydration at the same time.

Oh and it smells like candy so there is that too LOL.

I had not done my hair yet and it was 20 degrees outside hence the sweat shirt.
Happy Monday. Red lips

More Bzz- Weight Watchers Cereal

I tried the Frosted Shredded Wheat with protein I was sent from MOM brands last week in this post HERE.
I am now trying the Oat Clusters with cherries and almonds they also sent me.
I liked the shredded wheat a tad bit more but shredded wheat is normally my favorite so that was no surprise but I really did enjoy this cereal.
It kinda reminded me of Special K vanilla almond a little bit which I love so I would definitely recommend giving it a try.
Here are all the nutrition details from the box:
My one an only complaint with this cereal is how big the cherries are. I like my fruit to be a little bit smaller in cereal like in raisin bran but it is not so much of a complaint I would not buy it again

Happy Wednesday!


I was sent these products free as a bzz agent but these are my personal honest opinions. No one paid me or told me I had to give a good/bad review of this product.

February Ipsy Glam Bag

  make up monday new

It’s Ipsy Bag time and it came on Friday just in time for Valentine’s Day.

First off I love the makeup bag. It is super cute.


My first item was this Mitchell and Peach fine radiance face oil. I used it last night and it sinks in really nice and has a nice scent. My only complaints is it was hard to get out and it ships out of the UK so I imagine shipping costs might be a issue, but I have not tried to order any so it may be easy peasy with the coupon code ipsy provides. Full size retails for £30 which is $46.15 USD.


Next was a cute little sample of JOYA composition No. 1 Parfum Oil. The scent is fresh, outdoorsy with a hint of baby powder/rose if you ask me. I actually like it but it may not be for everyone. The full size roller ball retails for $30.


I also received this little gem from ModelCo in the color Peach Bellini. It is gorgeous and just might be my favorite product in the bag. I think it would be pretty as a eye shadow as well. It is full size and retails for $22.


I also received a very pretty eye shadow from Medusa’s Makeup in the color headhunter. It is a very pretty plum with a little bit of shimmer.  It was a tad powdery but the pigmentation was good. It is full size and retails for $8.


And last but not least I received a glitter polish from China Glaze in the color Marry A Millionaire.  It is perfect for Mardis Gras or Fat Tuesday tomorrow. It is full size and retails for $5.50 at Wal-Mart.


What is funny is I just bought this sinful polish to wear tomorrow from Wal-Mart the other day, but I think the china glaze might be a better color match for the day.


It was so hard to photograph but here are some pics in different lighting.




The photos just don’t do it justice.

I will try to do a side by side comparison for next Monday of the two.

I hope you all have a great Monday! Red lips
