First up, I had to try to lighten the stain, so I used a Clorox Bleach pen and layered on the bleach gel. I let the bleach sit for about 20 minutes, then washed and dried as usual.

I swapped clothes with one of my besties and snagged myself this striped top from Old Navy.
Tank is from Nordstrom B.P.

The Erase Paste sent in the kit I purchased from Sephora is the No.2 Medium shade. While I normally purchase medium beige shades for my olive skin, this color looked pretty warm in the jar and I thought it might be too pink for my tones. As you can see in the swatch (Erase Paste on left), there really isn't a huge difference though once applied to skin. The textures are definitely different - Erase Paste is thicker and creamier than MAC (although that may not be a fair comparison being my concealer is older).

My latest pedicure ... I love how the nail techs look at me like I am crazy sometimes. They tell me that I pick the colors that barely get used. I adore the bright colors, especially the blues. They make me smile!

The color that was sent with the set is called Birthday Suit. I was thrilled with this, because 90 percent of the time, I wear a cream colored shadow for a clean look (Shroom by MAC is my everyday shadow).
I was nervous at first, because being such a creamy/oily base, I assumed it would only wear off quicker. I decided to wear it alone, without adding any other shadow on top. The look was pretty and had a frosty shimmer that was subtle. I liked it. I had it on for a good 8 hours, and when it was time to wash it off, I didn't notice any major creasing!
I received a smaller size with the set I bought, but these shadows retail for $19 each and are available in some amazing colors. I would definitely purchase a couple of my favorite colors to have in my stash. These would be perfect for a night out being that they last so long and have gorgeous pigments!!
Here's Benefit's description of this product, found on Sephora's website ...
Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner
What it is:
Benefit's creaseless cream shadow/liners are guaranteed to make you gorgeous as they line, shade, and contour your eyes.
What it is formulated to do:
Blendable, beautiful - this do-it-all shadow lines, shades, and contours your eyes with a lovely crease-proof, smudge-proof formula. Mix and match, or go as sheer or as dramatic as you like with layerable, buildable color. You'll love the glass jar - just remember to close it tight to keep your cream shadow creamy and dreamy!
Have you tried these yet? What did you think?

This weekend, hubby let me pick up a couple new tops to keep my cravings down. I have been really good at not shopping so far this year, and I don't wanna lose my strength to continue to do so. He knows this, and because he is the bees knees in my world, he rewarded me!

Bamboopink is a new fashionable, yet affordable jewelry line made and designed by a famous, high-end designer whose current line is sold in upscale department stores, is all over the red carpet and worn by Oprah! This company is the first of its kind, an internet launched company with virtual trunk shows. There are no parties to host and no phone calls to make.
The company will launch with 100 jewelry items and 100 other items including iphone covers, ipod covers, sunglasses and other accessories.
Jewelry prices are reasonable and will range from $29-$100. There's something for everyone and every budget!
Bamboopink will train us and give us all the resources we need in order to be successful. No previous sales experience needed!
Analysts speculate that Bamboopink will be the largest women's internet start-up company in history. The company has a cutting-edge business model, and the jewelry will be sold through consultants on our personal websites and through "virtual" jewelry parties.
What sets this company apart from other direct sales companies:
* GROUND FLOOR opportunity (probably won't ever happen to you again!)
* Very successful "designer" multi-million dollar jeweler making/backing this jewelry, so sure to be successful
* Instead of growing one sales rep at a time, this business model using the free sign-up period - we can grow fifty sales reps at a time - but the time to do that is NOW!
This company is going to explode in a few weeks with a national press release and official launch. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. So be one of the first to sign up!
Then you can do the same as me and get credit for signing up your friends, which is what we are compensated for with jewelry, cash and/or an ipad. It is not about selling the jewelry at this point, but networking and creating interest. If you decide not to sell, you have lost nothing and your name is dropped from the list.
