Tarte 'Gifts from the Lipstick Tree' - Achiote, who knew?!

A few weeks ago I received my first Tarte Gift Set! I bought one for myself and one for my mother for Mothers day (I got 30% off each one + Free Shipping).

That's right folks, say 'Hello!' to Tarte's Gifts from the Lipstick Tree! The star of this set is an ingredient called Achiote, and if any of you cook, or are Hispanic, such as yours truly - You're first thought may be...'Don't you cook with that?' - YES! These are those little seeds that we infuse our olive oil with to put it in rice or those yummy pasteles/tamales that we all enjoy! Who knew we would be putting it in our makeup!?

Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm - Lip Crayon Madness!

I’ve been on a bit of a lip crayon kick & I can’t help but start seeing them every where! I had a very difficult time stopping myself from picking up the New Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain I saw at my local Riteaid for $8.99 – So many pretty colors…::drool:: & then I saw that Wet n' Wild had their own lip crayon, MegaSlicks Lip Color Pencil for $2.99. I really deserve a medal for this self-control! To be honest, I’ll probably break down and head on back over there tomorrow with my tail between my legs and pick them up, lol. Oh! Now even Victoria Secret has a line of lip crayons in stores under the ‘Beauty Rush’ line (2 for $12, or $7 individually). THE TEMPTATION IS NEVER ENDING!

I was in Target a few months ago and I saw the Pixi Display and spotted these very cutely packaged lip crayons. It just so happened that I had printed up 2 coupons from the Target website for Pixi products and I had a $10 Target Gift Card, so I decided to splurge and pick up 2 Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balms; Baby Bare’ a soft pink, and Craving Coral’ a bright light coral. At $16 a pop, you better believe I had coupons!

Gotta Love EOS Lip Balm Smooth Spheres!

I have to say, I went a little overboard with these lip balms. But, they are SOO useful, especially when you’re carrying around a purse the size of an overnight bag (GUILTY!).

I was looking into these little round cuties, after talking to my brother, who happens to be one of the healthiest and smartest people I know.  He is all into the “organic”/”good for you” products.  So, I decided to venture out and take a stab at the EOS lip balms Smooth Spheres and later their Shave Cream in “Vanilla Bliss” (that stuff smells SOOO Good).

The ideal engagement...House?

I was having a conversation yesterday with a soon to be famous rock star friend of mine (She was featured on billboard.com this month) about love, marriage, and the ever fantasized about engagement. Mind you, we had just gotten out from seeing the “5-year engagement” (Very cute movie – I have a secret crush on Jason Segel, shh! don’t tell anyone).

As we were digging into the $3 rack at Rainbow shop we happened upon this conversation.
