First impression- Heat by Beyonce

So, I get a billion and one perfume samples and I just either let them sit in my draw collecting dust or give them people in swaps or give them to friends and family. So I have decided to do first impression for you guys. I'm not one to have a lot of different kinds perfume or body sprays, I'm not one to want to smell like many things, if I like something a lot I will sigh with it. With that said, if something catches my "nose"(lol), I would be inclined to make purchase. Okay enough rambling, on to the first impression.

Heat by beyonce
There is a special place in my heart for Beyonce, I loved her in destiny's child, almost every song she had recorded has been a hit. Which is why it's so hard for me to say this, I'm not a fan of this perfume, when I first took a whiff, the first few things that came to mind were: hair dye and soap. I also detected a bit of a spicy scent, which didn't help.

Top notes: magnolia, neroli, red vanilla, peach
Heart notes: almond macaroon, honeysuckle nectar, creme de musk
Base notes: sequoia milkwood, tonka bean, amber
I don't know, maybe I had a bad batch, I really tried to like it, maybe I just need more time to get use to it. Maybe I will try it again in the future. But you want to give it a try for your self, you can purchase it from almost any place that sells perfume, I put a link down below for Macy's, as that was the first thing that popped up when I Googled it, the smallest bottle you can purchase, from Macy's anyways, is 1.7 oz for 50$. But if you do a little more research, you could probably find it cheaper. I hope this was helpful!

Review: Mark- Get in Line liner in- Deep Aqua

When I was little, I remember borrowing my mother's Avon Catalog and instead of going straight to the kid section of it, like a normal kid would do, I would go straight the cosmetic section(and of course getting caught looking at and getting lectured saying that I was to young to be thinking about wearing make up...)My first lip gloss(and of course it wasn't the deep red one I wanted, it was a sheer pink one, because I was too young to wear such dark and provocative color or so my mother told me) was from Avon, so when I heard that Mark was a cosmetic branch off of Avon, I was all over it. This was my first product from mark

I was a bit skeptical about this liner though, one it was very small, the packaging was very simple, yet complex, Mark has this hook up system, which is suppose to make it easy to travel with the products. So if you are girl on the go, this might be something you want to look into. When I first opened the product, I almost didn't want to even swatch it, it had one of those all over the place applicator, very big turn off! Many time I have bought products with similar applicators and have been frustrated with them, even using the small short stoke technique, the liner would all over where I don't want them to be. But since I received in a swap, so I though the least I would do is try it out.

When I swatch this liner on my hand, my heart nearly stop, I was so shocked at how pigmented the liner was and it was only one sweep. I though I swatching one MAC's liquid liners, so I decided I would to apply it on my eye. Surprisingly, I didn't have a problem applying this liner, regardless of the applicator, mind you, I was using very short strokes and slow motions, but it really wasn't necessary, the applicator wasn't flimsy. They staying power of this product is a beast, like you have to have a oil based make up remover to take this off(I had to get some to get the swatch to come off my hand xD), so that's also a plus. You can purchase this product at the online Mark store(which I will provide a link for below) or from Avon lady for only 6$(I know right) They have only a few shades though, so if you would like to try out some good liquid liners that are comparable to MAC's Liquid last for a cheaper price, you should check it out, I know I will. I hope this was helpful!

Review: Fyrinnae Liners in Flamboyant Forest and Midnight Mistress

I have never heard of Fyrinnae products, let alone tried them, but I received these liners in a swap, so I had nothing to lose if I tried them. You have to shake them a bit, as it's instructed by the packaging, they are a bit on the watery side, so use a little at a time and build up to the color pay that is desired. I like them, they are not the greatest, they don't last 8 hours, but they do last a good amount of time even in the heat.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find them on the Fyrinnae site anymore and I can't seem to find them sold anywhere. Which really sucks cause I was hoping to get some more of these. But I will put a link to the Fyrinnae, because their products are really nice. I'm going to have place an order myself. Hope this was helpful!:)

Imats- 2012

I've made up my mind, some how I'm going to make to IMATS next year and I'm going to take you through my planning and preparation. From booking the hotel to knowing what to pack for the trip. Which right, the big thing to do, is booking the hotel, it can't be booked later than the first week of january, I'm told anyways, the later it gets in the year, the harder it is to book a hotel close to the location you want, especially during the summer. I let you guys know when I have booked my hotel and will keep checking for hotels as it gets closer to the date and let you when is the absolute cut of when you won't be able to find hotels. Thanks for reading!

I thought of a usefull thing to post, which is swatches(which is one of the many reasons I read blogs) So I decided to swatch all if my lovely dazzleglasses for you guys :D All of these products were either bought with my own money or were sent to me in a swap unless otherwise noted.
 Dazzleglasses left to right:
Baby sparks- Light baby pink with gold, silver and light blue glitter
Rags to Riches- Light dirty pink with purple, gold and blue glitter
Internationalist- A coral pink with pink and blue glitter.
Funtabulous- A light pinkish purple with gold, pink and purple glitter

I love all of these, but I would have to say that my favorite is Goldyrocks, it's such a unique color. You can find Dazzleglasses at MAC store's, The MAC online store, MAC counters and CCO's(If your lucky to find some there) I can't promise that you find some of the ones listed here, some of these were limited edition.
