Fall 2013: NARS Fall Color Collection.

It's time to start talking fall. I know we are just half way through July, but the fall collections are hitting counters now and it's time to start shopping for your new fall faves. The NARS Fall Color collection was the first fall collection across my desk. It is nothing short of stunning.

NARS Fall Color Collection | Beautiful Makeup Search

The collection really plays up the eyes in wearable matte shades. I ususally don't go for matte, but the NARS matte formula is perfect. It is silky and soft, but adheres to the lid with ease as it fills them with beautiful color. The overall look is sultry.

The collection includes:

Eyeshadow Single - $24.00 each

  • Kamchatka - Navy Smoke
  • Namibia - Grey Moon
  • Yamal - Maple Sugar
  • Bavaria - Seep Sea Blue

Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - $24.00 each

  • Via de' Martelli - Chocolate
  • Las Ramblas - Yellow Gold

Pure Matte Lipstick - $26.00 each

  • La Paz - Orchid
  • Peloponnese - Ginger Pink

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - $25.00

  • Mysterious - Crimson Red
  • Paimpol - Pink Chiffon

Nail Polish - $19.00

  • Galathee - Dove Grey
  • Fury - Regal Purple

I am loving the combination of Yamal all over the eye, with Bavaria on my outer lid and crease. I am lining with Via de' Martelli, a beautiful chocolate brown, that looks like a creamy copper on my eye. Forget waiting until fall, this look is gorgeous right now.

Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem.

I have some really exciting news to share with you. I am making a change in my life, for the better. I am taking control of the one thing that is out of control: my weight. I am now part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program and will be starting the program within the next few weeks. I am so excited!

After a health crisis two years ago, I lost some weight (40 pounds!) in a really short period of time. I was not well and it was not a healthy way to lose weight. What that did do though, was motivate me to be healthier. I now exercise on a pretty regular basis, but my diet is not good. Some of that weight I lost has started to creep back up on me. I was afraid to step on the scale, but I knew things were bad when my shorts from last summer are now too tight. I finally did step on the scale and was horrified to see that I gained 15 pounds over the past nine months. I now need to lose 30 pounds.

Most importantly, I am at an age where my weight can and will start affecting my health. Both high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes are in my family, and I do not want them to affect me. I need to take control of what I can control, and that is my weight. I am starting now, with the help of Nutrisystem.

I am excited and scared. I am making the commitment in front of all of you and want to be successful. I need to be successful this time.

Stick with me and look for my weekly updates. My food will be arriving soon, and I will update once I have completed my first week. Wish me luck. I need it.

I will also be looking for your support and I want to support you too. If you struggle with your weight, please share. Let's get it under control together!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in 40 Shades!

Do you want to know the eyeliner that I use most often? It is Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. I can't even count how many Demolition, Rockstar or Zero pencils that I have gone through. For me, these pencils have always been perfection. I am super excited because they have extended the shade range to now include 40 shades. The line-up consists of best sellers, 13 new shades, and some of the most sought after limited edition shades - now all permanent in the line up.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils

Made with jojoba oil, Vitamin E and cottonseed oil, the highly pigmented formula glides on, stays creamy for blending and dries down to a waterproof finish that won't budge. These eye pencils do not tug or pull at the eye when applying. And creating a thin or thick line is simple. The formula is super long-lasting and like I mentioned, waterproof too. No one likes an eyeliner that is half rubbed off or smudged away, and 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils promise to never do just that.

The new shades include:
