  1. That Viva Glam Gaga 2 looks great on you! I've been a little hesitant about getting it, but now seeing your pic has convinced me I can rock it too!

  2. Gorgeous!!! I recently ordered Gaga 2 and then regretted it after I saw some swatches....but this looks has me excited about trying it

  3. I have mixed feelings about Gaga 2: On its own, its way too light and ashy on me, but with chestnut lip pencil added I really like the finished result. However its a bit of work to get the 2 blended together just right. Why is it so hard to find a flattering nude lippie :(

  4. This is pretty, flawless look as always :) I like that Sweet and Punchy color.

  5. I love this look on you the color combo is great for spring.. and so glad your starting to like the brushes i think im going to try them i like pixiwoo...

  6. Gorgeous! Did you use the Viva Glam Gaga II lipstick or lipglass?

  7. Thanks Ladies!

    @Ms Viva Glam, I love Sweet & Punchy, but it seems like I always forget about it, only to happily discover it again a few months later, lol.

    @CocoagirlD, I think you'll like the Pixiwoo brushes, they're really, really soft and do a great job. Plus the price means you can get the whole set without bankrupting yourself, lol.

    @Shahada, I used the Gaga 2 lipstick. I would have used the gloss but I was in a rush and it was lost in the bottomless pit that is my purse :)

  8. beautiful as always hun,love it!

  9. It looks great on you! I can;t do any other color beside black. Not confident enough

  10. Thanks everyone!

    @Bostonian, a few years ago I would've never used brighter colors, but I find the more I step out of my comfort zone, the more confidence I have.

    You should give some other colors a try and see how you like it. If you don't, you can always wash it off and start again!

  11. I have yet to try a bold yellow look like this, but I think I may have to. It looks lovely.


  12. You have perfect brows have you done a tutorial on how you do them?
