Purple spLASHes

Bonjour mes amis :)

Some of you may have probably been wondering why I've been swaying away from my original topic of makeup/beauty and posting stuff about my friends' musical achievements. Not to reveal too much, but music, art and performing arts are a huge passion of mine, and I have been in the arts my entire life. Both my parents are artists, as well as most of my friends that I met in high school--the FAME school in New York City. I definitely plan on revisiting this topic in the future and perhaps even post a video or two of my own artistic endeavors, so stay tuned! :) For today, I'll stick to beauty and maquillage.

Today's post is featuring my makeup of the day or maquillage du jour, starring moi and some newly acquired cosmetic products. Let me know what you think of my purple spLASHes ::wink wink::

Since discovering these awesomely bright pop color mascaras a few months ago, I've been obsessing over LA Splash mascaras and have been going back to the store to purchase a new color every week. So far, I've built a small private collection of mascaras with my most recent addition being this purple number in "Purple Splash". I've been looking for the right purple mascara for some time... most are either too aubergine or too deep; this one, however, fits all of my desired criteria. It's bright, it's truly purple and it's very wearable. The picture of the actual product is tiny because I took it from Ulta's website, but you can see the color pretty clear on my lashes. Don't they look funky?! I'm excited! Wish I had longer lashes though... hehe

  8. thanks ladies, glad you like the purple!
    @Donna: thanks doll, people have told me before that my face changes depending on the makeup. Nope, the hair is all natural, the strands around my face always burn out in sun in the summertime... I blame my mix haha
    @Dulce: thanks darling, I usually get it at Duane Reade in NYC (I don't know if other drugstores carry this brand) but I know for a fact that Ulta and Sally's have it as well :)

  9. Hey Maryam! I've been experimenting a little with purple myself but I haven't bought a purple mascara! I bought the Nyx liner in purple though! I love it on my water line! And Donna is totally right! I always thought Alyssa Mylano was a chameleon as well haha

    Thanks for the nail polish color btw! I can't wait to get my hands on it it's the perfect peach!

    love,
    dani
