NYX Wonder Pencil Review

Friday, May 31, 2013

I am so glad I picked up this miracle worker!!! The name of this pencil is no exaggeration, it is truly a WONDER PENCIL.

You can use this pencil as a concealer, waterline brightener, brow bone highlighter, inner corner highlighter, reverse lip liner, and even an eyeshadow base.
It comes in three shades: light, medium, and deep.
I picked up the shade light:)

I have used NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Rue Bonapart, for a waterline brightener for years. I must say that immediately replaced it with the NYX Wonder Pencil!

I love the brightening, yet natural, effect it gives the eyes:)

(swatched on NW15 skin)

Price: 4.49

Should you get it: YES

NYX Wicked Dreams Palette SWATCHES and REVIEW

I picked up the NYX Wicked Dreams Palette to use during Discount June. I honestly purchased it just for its amazing color range, not expecting the shadows to be any kind of quality. Well, I got waaaaaay more than I bargained for, because the shadows in this palette are so nicely pigmented and smooth. 
If you know anything about me and my relationship with drugstore cosmetics, you know I am not a fan. I would rather have less high-end products, than a bunch of drugstore products I never use. Having said all of that, I do love when I run into drugstore gems, like this palette, that slap me in the face for judging them. Let's get into swatching this pleasant surprise of a palette....

The color range in this palette is absolutely wonderful. You get 12 (very pigmented) matte shades, and 12 shimmery shades. I am very pleased to have such great matte eyeshadows, that actually show up, in one palette.  The shimmery shades are inconsistent in color pay off. The lighter of the shimmery shades are less pigmented than the darker ones. 

The shadows are swatched L to R starting from the top row.
 I am swatching on NW15 skin, with no primer underneath.

Top Row L to Right:

Middle Row L to R:
(As you can see, the lighter of the shimmery shades are a bit less pigmented, but great for highlighting)

Bottome Row L to R:

I have been using this palette for the last week to prepare for some upcoming tutorials. I am pleased to say, with a primer, the shadows last all day on lid with no fading. 

Price: 14.99

Should you get it: YES

Mommy Time!

Saturday, May 25, 2013

I had so much fun with my mom this past week. She flew in on the 18th, and left today:( I always miss her so much immediately  after I drop her off at the airport. I feel like a kid that is starting her first day of Kindergarten. I cry like a baby once she is gone!
I thought I would share some of the good times we had with you guys, so I wouldn't be so sad all day long.

We went to our favorite winery, Chateau Ste Michelle, and did a wine tasting and tour. It is so beautiful there, and we had such an amazing time. My mom and I were surprised we ended up LIKING white wines. We actually came away with four bottles of all white wine, and didn't even regret it!
We try to take as many serious pictures as possible, but the majority always end up crazy:)
I am not even sure what is going on in this picture, but I know we ended up laughing extremely hard!

 God bless my mom for putting up with my silly self!!!

 My mom is so much fun to be with and she is my best friend, through thick and thin...yes I just got cheddar cheesy!
Uh oh! I found a normal smiley photo!!!

This is us trying to take a picture, of course it always ends up a little off. We got some yummy Vietnamese for lunch:)

I know I have said it a million times, but we had such a good time, and I can't wait for her next visit! Until then, I guess it is back to the "beauty grind"! So be on the look out for some new tutorials this week.
Follow me on Instagram http://instagram.com/mallory1712 for more pics, and don't forget to sub to our vlog channel keeganNmallory http://www.youtube.com/user/keeganNmallory to see my mom in the vlog today:)

OOTD Rachel Zoe Head to Toe

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Today is OBVIOUSLY a dream OOTD!!!
Rachel Zoe is for sure one of my favorite fashion icons. I feel like her collections are for the modern day 40's frame of mind women. You know the women that are always perfectly dressed, no matter where they are or what they are doing. I wish I could say that is who I am, but the truth is far from the dreams I dream. Today for example, I wore my OLD NAVY sweat shorts and Washington Hatchets T shirt. That is exactly why today's post is a  DREAM OOTD post.
Most of the time I don't mind posting my hideous outfits, but I know that can get boring...because I wear them a lot!
So let's all dream a little!!!

This is the fabulous, easy to wear, Claudia Jumpsuit.
I love this jumpsuit, I feel like you could comfortably stand out in the crowd wearing it.
AH! Look at this shoe! This is the Brooklyn sandal, and that gold heel...is just THE MOST. I think this shoe would bring up the sexy in the Claudia Jumpsuit just enough.

Oh my goodness, the Morrison Medium Patent Leather tote just instantly made me drool. It is so rich in color that it looks edible. This is my kind of "pop of color"!

I keep it pretty simple when it comes to accessorizing. I absolutely LOVE this Marc by Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet. It is RUBBER, I mean how cool is that?

These Kate Spade Locked In studs are just so cute, and add such a sweet edge.

Last but not least, I usually add one ring... and then I am done. This ring is the All For The Want ring by House of Harlow .(have I mentioned I love Nicole Richie?!)

OOTD Yesterday's Look May 12th 2013

Monday, May 13, 2013

This one is a tad late, so I do apologize for that. We had church last night and didn't get home until pretty late, so I had to get some shut eye. No need to worry though, below is yesterday's OOTD:)

This spoon ring was my mom's when she was in highschool, and she gave it to me when I was in highschool:) 
It remains one of my favorite rings.

Aren't these Lucky Brand loafers just adorbable? I actually got these at Victoria's Secret online two yrs ago, but have only recently started to wear them this spring. They are so comfy and class up any outfit!!!

OOTD A Jason Wu Dream May 11th 2013

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Jason Wu has been my favorite designer for years now, way before Michelle Obama "put him on the map". Jason put himself on the map if you ask me:)

When he launched his line at Target almost 2 years ago, I was there opening day and grabbed all my favorite pieces.

Does anyone remember this adorable ad campain?!!!!

Needless to say, today was NOT a glamorous day, and was full of cleaning all the nooks and crannies. On that note, I thought it would be fun to post my DREAM OOTD. My dream OOTD of course consists of entirely Jason Wu pieces. Below are my favorite pieces from pre-fall 2013 and fall 2013.

This look is absolutely STUNNING head to toe. If I lived in my dream world, I would have a closet filled with Jason Wu designs.  So, let us all pretend I wore this lovely ensemble today instead of my Soffe shorts and old Alabama t shirt.

UGH, and the Jourdan bag in this gorgeous green is just THE MOST.  I pretended I carried this bag while wearing my pretend outfits:)

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the perfection of this look? Classy, modern, edgy, mysterious...I could go on for days. This is for sure a look I rock in my head every fall and winter. Heck I would wear this when it is 80 degrees if i could.

I really hope you guys enjoyed this dream OOTD!!!!

Check out Jason Wu's website for all this stunning looks:

OOTD Shopping and Errands May 10th 2013

Today I had some shopping to do and some errands to run.  It is  finally nice here in Seattle, so I really feel like trying to be cute every day!!!!  When it is constantly raining and cloudy, you never feel like putting a cute outfit together.

Once again I am wearing my Fossil Stella Resin watch:)

Today was also a day where I just wanted to throw on some mascara, and a bright lip:)

OOTD Kettle Bell Hell May 9th 2013

Thursday, May 9, 2013

Today was another one of those days that I spent in my workout clothes! We spent most of the day outside painting my jewelry box, then decided to trash it haha.

After that decision, it was workout time. We decided to give some love to our old kettle bells to mix things up.
Boy did it kick our butts!!!! I forgot how hard kettle bell workouts were. I was only using a 20lb kettle bell, and it I felt like I was gonna collapse. Needless to say, It was a great workout. On days like this, I am grateful that I have been faithfully drinking my Fighter Diet Greens.

Since I featured Fighter Diet Greens in my last April Favorites video, I have had a lot of questions and interest in purchasing them.


I absolutely LOVE my FD Greens. They provide me with more natural energy throughout my day AND help with my joint pain. What more could I ask for? Well they give me a lot more than I ask for. They make up for a lot of nutrition I do not get out of my regular diet, and provide nutrients for hair, skin, and nails.

I also LOVE Pauline Nordin!!!! Anyone who knows me, knows I am a huge fan. I trust her word on nutrition, supplements, and over all health. She is an amazing inspiration for all women to become who they want to be. 
I know I want to be stronger than my body tells me I can be. 
 I find constant encouragement from her words of wisdom on twitter haha!!!!

Now she has come out with two new supplements I know I just have to try:

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Today was definitely a day to wear a tank top and print leggings! I absolutely LOVE an all black ensemble, but I know that can get pretty boring...so I throw in a PRINT haha.

My Steve Madden Coquette Smoking Loafers are my absolute favorite flats. I have them in black and a bright coral.
The tank is from Marshalls two years ago...they have the best flowy tanks, at the best prices. I also bought this bralette at Marshalls.
I have 3 different pair of these leggings from PacSun because they are so comfy and they don't wear out.
Now let's take a peek at the details:)

This Fossil watch has been a favorite of mine for years! I love the neutral bone color, and its menswear inspired.
The earrings and ring are from Fuego. The little skeleton bodies actually move!
