Wild for Wet n Wild

Ever since I was a young teenage girl, my heart skipped a beat when walking towards the Wet n Wild makeup section in my local drugstore. Wet n Wild was my Mac in those days and actually still is. Especially now with the release of there Color Icon products. The quality and color pay off is fantastic. The eyeshadow quads are gorgeous, the blushes have good staying power and the lipsticks are not drying. I was tickled pink to hear through the great vine that they are releasing The Color Icon Collection which includes an 8 pan palette. If past palettes are any indication of which we are in store for then I am one excited beauty blogger! The fact that you can get such good quality makeup for such an affordable price is amazing. Wet n Wild has certainly taken notice of there new found popularity amongst beauty bloggers and gurus. Which is why I think they have stepped up there game and are producing such great products. I for one will be first in line for there upcoming new collection. Some of the names for these new products have T.V show inspired names such as, Everybody loves Redmond, The Gold & The Beautiful, Orange and Saved by the Blue. How brilliant are those names. Kudos Wet n Wild for a job well done... What are your favorite Wet n Wild products? What do you think about there new products?

The best book I have ever read!

Okay so this book is not beauty related but it's better. I am an avid reader. I go through two to three books a week. I like reading books on alternative medicine and self help books. This books far exceeded my expectations. It has changed my life! It is from New York Times best selling author Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. The book is called, The Power of Intention-Learning to co-create the world your way. I have been blown away by this book. It teaches you that everything in the universe has intention built into it.This is true for all life forms, whether it be an animal or a rose-bush. Intention grows fingernails, it beats ones heart, digest food and writes this post. It does this for everyone and everything in the universe. This book teaches you to tap into the power of intent to live a life free of fear but instead a life of endless possibilities. I will give you a sample of some of the quotes from the book and give you a link to Dr. Wayne Dyer's website. This is an amazing book that I am sure will blow you away too. I was not sent this book, it was given to me as a wedding present 5 years ago and I just recently read it. I wish I would of read it sooner. Here are the quotes:

"Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change".

"You were intended out of love; you must be love in order to intend".

"You must match intention's attributes with your own in order to capitalize on those powers in your life".

"If you're experiencing scarcity, anguish, depression, an absence of love, or any inability to attract what you desire, seriously look at how you've been attracting these circumstances into your life."

"That which offends your only weakens you".

"If life is not infinite, then it is not life".

Charlies Angels, Dynasty, Falcon Crest era in makeup

I don't know about you but there was something so captivating about the late 70's and 80's era in makeup on T.V. There was something about Jacklyn Smith's makeup on Charlies Angels that really inspired me. It was soft and warm yet alluring. Farrah Fawcett always looked sun kissed and bronzed. Joan Collins makeup on Dynasty was intense yet very feminine. I loved that era in makeup. I remember lots of nude, corals, russet lips paired with copper and rich chocolate brown eye shadows and very warm cheeks. Then there were the bronze goddesses like Farrah and Heather Locklear. There look was bronzed skin, warm cheeks, nude lips, liner and big feathery lashes. They all seemed to have that lit from within glow to there faces. I till this day think this was the best era in makeup. I will be doing a Jacklyn Smith makeup look that I will be posting soon. What was your favorite era in makeup?
