Recap: I did a romantic makeup look for Valentine’s Day that I did not photograph. I will recreate it! I also did a lot of cooking. I made Sweet Potato & Sage Cream Sauce with campenelle pasta. Very easy to make, but it looked super fancy. For dessert, I made a burnt caramel cake. Yum! I will take a picture of a slice soon. I love the awesome people in life and that made 2/14. Love, Amanda

E.L.F. Eyeshadow Pigment Collection Swatches

I got the E.L.F. Eyeshadow Pigment Collection for only $3. At first, I was apprehensive about using it for everyday wear because it is very pigmented and has a lot of glitter. However, it actually came out really nicely. I used the gold on my lid, the maroon in the crease, and little of the black to create a smoky look. Below are my swatches of the three colors. The glitters can be blended out easily. I’m really happy with this investment.

American Apparel Lip Glosses

Lipglosseslipgloss swatches

I recently went to American Apparel and got these two lip glosses for free because of a promotion. The purple color is called African Violet and the red is called Legalize LA. They both look really nice and it will be fun to play with these colors.

Unfortunately, American Apparels employees at more than one location are ***holes. These people were so rude and attitudinal to me and my other friends that I realized why I do not shop at this store. They seem to not like me as a young black female.
