How has music changed your life?

So, this also being a music blog. I figured I'd start putting up some songs. The songs I'm going to post is songs that have impacted my life. 

First one is one of my favorite songs of ALL TIME. This is the first song that comes to my mind when I think of ones that have changed my life and/or have an impact. It's like she reached in my soul and wrote down what she found. The part of me only a very very few get to see. It brings tears to my eyes every time.

Evanescence "Breathe No More"
I've been looking in the mirror for so long.
That I've come to believe my soul's on the other side.
All the little pieces falling, shatter.
Shards of me,
Too sharp to put back together.
Too small to matter,
But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces.
If I try to touch her,
And I bleed,
I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe no more.

Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirits well.
Yet again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child.
Lie to me,
Convince me that I've been sick forever.
And all of this,
Will make sense when I get better. ----one of my fav lines ever

But I know the difference,
Between myself and my reflection.
I just can't help but to wonder,
Which of us do you love.
So I bleed,
I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe no...
I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe,
I breathe-
I breathe no more.

Illamasqua's Generation Q Collection

Generation Q is a celebration of beauty. Ageless, and without limits or restrictions. It’s our declaration to the world that beauty is inclusive, not exclusive. In fact, Generation Q is a clear message to everybody, everywhere that beauty is not young, old, black, white, male or female, but anything, everything and everyone.

MAC cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection

MAC For Marilyn

Alright you Marilyn Monroe fans, MAC has made a Marilyn Monroe collection due in October!

Since It's special packaging the prices are a $1 more than usual.

I'm not too sure what I'm getting from this. Swatches always determine that for me. I think I'll want Love Goddess Lipstick, maybe a couple of the shadows (I love the VP formula!) and the Beauty Powder.  I have been very very choosey on what I get these days as funds are very tight. So I havent been getting much.

Sephora Brand Instant Polish Remover

As I said about my computer before, it overheats after like 15 min online. So I havent been able to post. BUT I figured I'd at least get one post a day on here. It may be something short and not important lol but at least its something! :)

So for todays I bring you a new staple of mine. I bring you Sephora Brand Instant Polish Remover. This stuff really is magic! Just stick you finger in the pre-moistened pleated foam for a few seconds, depending on what kind of polish, it sometimes takes a little longer. No need for cotton balls. With some of the more stubborn polishes you have to rub your fingers in there a little bit, but nothing rough. This even takes off glitter polish. Which we all know is a pain in the butt to remove. It has a pleasant smell and doesnt give your fingers that bitter taste like other removers. I get bored with polishes pretty quick so this allows me to change it more often. LOVE this product! You can get it at your local Sephora or Sephora online for $9.50

Live, Love, and Rock and Roll!

Here I am again apoligizing for not posting in a while. Sorry about that! I guess me turning 30 this year has got me thrown for a loop. But I've come out of my never ending journey in this crazy thing called life to get back to the simple things that make me happy. Part of that is makeup and fashion! I'm sure you've noticed that I wear mostly MAC. So I'll be shelling out info on up and coming collections for 2012!

Hey Sailor and Beth Ditto came out this month. I was a good girl and only got one lippy from Beth Ditto. Funds are tight so I have to be incredibly choosey.

Here's Dear Diary. It's an awesome bright pink longwear lipcreme. Here's a swatch...

Dear Diary is on the top and Candy Yum Yum is on the bottom. Some have said they are simular so I put a comparison swatch. DD is darker and has a tinge of fucshia in it compared to CYY.

Small Sephora Haul

I went to go get some tops for work at JC Penny. And of course I had to go into Sephora thats inside. I just picked up a few things....
  • On the left: Korres 3 in 1 cleanser. I have really dry skin so the MA suggested this face wash.
  • NARS nailpolish in Diamond Life. I've never purchased NARS but have heard great things. I'm a sucker for metallic purples! I think it's pretty dupable. But the formula is top notch so I think its worth it. Plus it has a full 0.5 ounces, which is more then your average polish.
  • NARS Larger Than Life eye liner in Rue De Rivoli. It's a beautiful forrest green. It's very smooth and pigmented.
  • Sephora brand clear mascara. I use it to set my brows
  • Sephora brand Purple eyepencil sharpener. Its designed to put in your makeup bag without spilling.

NARS, Rue De Rivoli swatch.
Sorry about the blurriness, I couldnt seem to get a good picture.

This is only one coat!!! Excuse my horrible cuticles.

Ooooo!.... Ahhhh!

Estee Lauder's Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss in Violet Rain!

I NEED this gloss! It reminds me of the amazing dare to wear lippies that MAC released last year. I sure hope they come back cause they are my FAV lip products and I only snagged 2 of them. I think I'll be purchasing this one and the light pink one thats also being released with this. I want a couple more but just dont have the funds.

(these are NOT my photos. They are from one of my fav blogs, the lovely Christine @ Thanks for the awesome swatches as always.

Here's a link to her full review...

There are some more awesome colors! You can purchase here...

Thierry Mugler Fragrance "Alien"

Thierry Mugler's

When I order from Macys online they always put paper samples of purfumes in my box. Over the years I've tried many, this one for some reason is special. I dont know what it is about it exactly. It has such a feminine, sexy, goddess like smell. At first sniff I dug it. As the day went on I kept getting a whiff of an intoxicating scent. I figured out it was the sample sitting on the side table. It's the second day and its still lingering. At first sniff its pretty in your face (in a good way, its just strong), but the dry down makes this fragrance so wearable. The name totally fits this scent. It's like nothing I've ever smelled before...It's out of this world! haha. And get this, It's refillable!! Of course it costs money but costs less then buying a whole other bottle. I am absolutely in love with the bottle as well! And it being purple is the icing on the cake. I can wait to finish my coach poppy purfume (which is saying a lot cause its one of my favs) so I can snatch this one up! I hope that the actual purfume is as good as I'm hoping it is. But if it has this kind of effect just by a paper sample, I think this will be one I'll wear for years to come.

Here's the description from the sephora website...
Discover Alien, radiant and mysterious, the elixir of absolute femininity. Be seduced by the soothing solar energy of this extraordinary fragrance from elsewhere. Luminous like a brilliant solar flower, the fragrance exudes a positive energy, charged with mystery. Evoking the scent of wood warmed by intense sunlight, Alien is sensual and intriguing, yet as soft and rich as the caress of cashmere.
Notes:Solar Accord, Jasmine Sambac, Green Notes, Cashmeran, Vanilla, Transparent Amber.
Mysterious. Soothing. Magnetic.
