StarFlash Collection Dupes – FOTD

I decided to “Shop My Stash” for today’s FOTD.   I wanted to use the StarFlash dupes suggested on Specktra.net and  Nessasary Makeup Blog.

All MAC products unless noted

I used colors that are supposed to be dupes of certain StarFlash e/s.

Face

  • MSF Dark
  • NYX Concealer in Nutmeg

Eyes

  • Matte Gel
  • Fresco Rose Paint Pot
  • Mancatcher e/s on lid (is supposed to be a dupe of Lotusland)
  • Circa Plum p/g
  • Thunder e/s on crease (is supposed to be a dupe of Top Hat)
  • Brown side from the L’Oreal Hip Duo Brazen
  • Retrospeck e/s – highlighter (may be a dupe of Dreamcatcher)
  • LA Colors Lash Building Mascara in Black
  • NYX Eye Liner – Sapphire

Cheek

  • Fab Blush
  • Warmed MSF

Lips

  • Pucker Tendertone
  • NYX Baby Pink Round l/g

I am totally looking forward to MAC’s StarFlash collection.  I have been looking for a shimmery mid-tone pink eye shadow and I, strongly, believe that Sunset B will be my HG eye shadow.  I got NYX’s Dolly Pink, but the fall out is excessive, which means that I do not have the appropriate base for that shadow and some other NYX eye shadows.  In my humblest opinion, paint pots do not work well with certain NYX shadows.  (Could be just me!!)

I know that I will not get any of the lip products nor kohl pencils.

What products are you getting from the StarFlash collection?

OOh I cannot wait to see the man in brown on Thursday!..woohoo!!

I am Hip to the Duo

Whoa-wee I have been super busy, which results in super tiredness.  Mr. Maven and I have been taking some classes and we have family visiting.    Then I started Facebook-ing. *Sorry, I am late to that party*  I reconnected with some friends that I had not heard from in years (some years in the double digits.)  Good times.

Being on Specktra.net nor watching YouTube tutorials is not good for anyone’s wallet, especially mine.  I joined the site because I was a huge MAC fan.  Then I was exposed to other department store brands and even drugstore stuff that I poo-pooed. *Don’t judge me* LOL 🙂 .  Most people start with drugstore brands, which I did back in the day e.g. Revlon and Max Factor only, then moved to Lancome, Estee Lauder, Clinique and  MAC.  I never thought I would go back to trying drugstore brands, except for mascara (never went high-end).

So I decided to get one L’Oreal Hip Duo in Brazen (at the recommendation of Yummy411 aka Kia).  Since she is a big time makeup artiste (She is quite humble), I ask her recs on various non-MAC products.  Anyway, I loved the brown side as a nice crease-creating color.   I will use the pink side soon.   Ok, so I decided to check out more.  Thank goodness, I waited for the BOGO Free at Walgreens and CVS.  I did not want to get too many as I have many dupes of the colors they offer.  (I know I am also late to the L’Oreal Hip Duo scene!)  Recently, I added Playful and Adventurous Duos to my collection.  I like the Hip Duos because they are a reasonably priced and suitable dupes of MAC products i.e. good pigmentation.  There is little fall out and you do not need to use a special base i.e tacky base too apply.  Since, I am a wonderful cousin, I have been getting my cousin, who is a poor college student, the Duos, so she can be extra cute when going around campus.

So here is my FOTD on my way to Costco.  (Who loves the free samples?!?!)

(All products MAC unless noted)

Face

  • MSF Dark
  • NYX Concealer in Nutmeg

Eyes

  • Matte Gel
  • Painterly Paint Pot
  • Peach side from the L’Oreal Hip Duo Playful
  • Expensive Pink
  • Shimmery cocoa brown side from the L’Oreal Hip Duo Playful
  • Too Faced Super NovaGlam e/s
  • Twinks e/s
  • Blonde brown side of L’Oreal Hip Duo Adventurous
  • Tempting e/s (lower lashline)
  • LA Colors Lash Building Mascara in Black
  • Too Faced Foiled in Black

Cheek

  • Sweet As Cocoa
  • Nars Torrid

Lips

  • Pucker Tendertone
  • Strapless (Lustre)

I find that I have trouble with orange and corally shadows, regardless of the brand.  This is the first time I made Expensive Pink work.  I promised that I would not repurchase Expensive Pink, but I may change my mind.  I still cannot get the Orange side of Flare to work, maybe all I need is a better base.  I am definitely getting some UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion) ASAP!!

Are there any colors that just do not work for you?

I Love Randy Jackson’s Presents America’s Best Dance Crew

Randy Jackson\'s Presents America\'s Best Dance Crew

I love watching MTV’s (me watching is a rarity these days) Randy Jackson Presents American’s Best Dance Crew (Dang that is a long A$$ name 😉 . (Sidebar: this is the only competition show I watch… No Idol, no America’s Got Talent, No So You Think You Can Dance et al.) As of now, I do not have any favorite dance crews, but I am not feeling Fanny Pak.  I do think SoReal Cru is pretty good and the Detroit Crew was also good (yay for the deaf dancer.)  I am looking forward to the rest of the 2nd season.

ASSID, Detroit Dance Crew

SoReal Cru, Houston Dance Crew

Fanny Pak, LA Dance Crew

I enjoyed hearing the heartfelt back stories of the dancers and the crews.  I wish all of them best and I hope they can parlay this show into something very successful.

Which dance crew is your fave?

I Love Too Faced

Friends ask me all the time about which cosmetic brands, specifically which eye shadows, are worth checking out.  At first, I was all about the MAC, which I still am, but now I have added Urban Decay, Lorac, Ben Nye, CARGO. I want to add Too Faced to that list.

My Too Faced admiration started last year when I was looking for a shimmery chocolate eye shadow, which MAC does not have.  I ordered Too Faced “Dirt Bag” online from Sephora from the color description “dark chocolate with golden sparkles.” (Sidebar: There are about 2 Sephora stores close by my home and for whatever reason going to either store was not an option at the time.)  When the package arrived, I was pleased with the color and the product. Too Faced eye shadows are smooth and very blendable, which is something that should be available in all department store brands. Recently, I have added more Too Faced to my collection:

  • Glamazon single (Silver fawn)
  • Sitcom Siren single (Plum taupe shimmer)
  • Cocoa Lily Duo – (rich metallic chocolate brown/ glimmering lilac rose) *Very lovely*
  • George & Weezie Duo – (icy gold/ bronze pearl) *I bought this one because I liked the name*
  • Rich Bitch Duo – (slate blue with golden sheen/ soft gold shimmer) *Basically, these are both gold in my opinion, the blue barely shows up.*
  • Skinny Dip – (cobalt metallic/ iridescent sky) – – *The prettiest blue I have seen in a long time, the iridescent sky is too pretty…like a soft bluish purple hue*
  • Shooting Star Galaxy Glam Eye Shadow – (black with galactic gold) *similar to MAC’s mineralized eye shadows, but with a better texture*
  • Supernova Galaxy Glam Eye Shadow – (black with peach and pink)

Too Faced Dirt Bag Single Eye Shadow

Too Faced Cocoa Lily Duo Eye Shadow

Too Faced George & Weezie Duo Eye Shadow

Too Faced Rich Bitch Duo Eye Shadow

Too Faced Skinny Dip Duo Eye Shadow

Too Faced Galaxy Glam Eye Shadow (Shooting Star & Super Nova)

The Galaxy Glam Eye Shadows are great for creating a smoky eye look.  I tried the Super Nova recently with Cocoa Lily and I liked the outcome.  (Please pray for me and my liner technique…getting better though.)

Liquif-Eye Set

I also want to try the Liquif-Eye Set (eye shadow / eyeliner set). (See above comment) 🙂

Each eye shadow is very pigmented and has a buttery texture.  My only problem with Too Faced is that the brand needs more colors.  Too Faced, for the size, is a good deal as it is cheaper than MAC (when size is compared.)  MaybeI could break-up with MAC eye shadows for Too Faced (I love MAC too much though), but there is no other brand with the extensive eye shadow color range and textures.   I implore the Too Faced guys to come out with more colors.  I will be in the first one in line to snatch them up.

Definitely check out Too Faced products, I think they are definitely worth your time and money.

Have a beautiful day,

Some Favorite Gospel Songs

Hey Pumps and Glossy Ones,

I have been kinda under the weather, so please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Nothing major (Don’t worry too much!)

Here are some of my favorite gospel songs. I like these songs because they give me the extra hope and faith I need to make it through the day, that “Yes I can” feeling.

Ricky Dillard & The New G – “The Light” I like this song because it reminds that even when we do not realize it (at times) , God is always with us. The song has a great melody. This choir is quite hip and incorporates a lot of current dance moves. (I am surprised that they did not “Walk It Out.”

Marvin Sapp – “Never Would Have A Made It” Marvin Sapp is a powerful singer. His songs tug at the heartstrings and engage the listeners to reflect on the goodness of God. He is one of my all-time favorites singers.

DeWayne Woods – “Let Go and Let God” I love, love, love this song. When we are stressing about the cares of the world, we need let go and let God have his way. A great testimony.

What are some of your favorite gospel/inspirational songs?

Super Tuesday Hangover

Hey Pumps and Glossy Ones,

If you live in a Super Tuesday primary state, did you vote? I really do hope so.

If you did not because you were not registered, please hightail yourself to Declare Yourself as soon as possible. At this site, you will find voting registration applications and deadlines for all 50 states.

This is by far the most historic election in the history of the United States of America. Who would have thought (some may have hoped) that we would have a woman and African-American man as viable candidates?

Hillar Clinton and Barack Obama - Source: Reuters

Even with all this progress, do not ever forget that the struggle is not over. Work still needs to be done, especially to equally educate all the children of the United States from the crumbling ghettos to the affluent suburbs. There needs to be equal pay for equal work. Much work needs to be done in this country. Hopefully, whoever becomes president will begin to transform the nation into a positive direction.

Mr. Maven and I were tracking the Super Tuesday results as if we were tracking a sporting event. We knew at the end of the night that there would be no clear leader on the Democratic side, so we did not stay up all hours of the night to get the results. I will say that I thought that Barack would have done slightly better in the Northeastern states, yet he did well in Western states, which held caucuses. I thought that he and Hillary would have split those states. So stay tuned to this race as it will get even more exciting.

Former Governor Mike Huckabee showed he had some fight left in him. I am sure he got the Conan O’Brien bump. I think his showing will continue to add fuel to the O’Brien Vs. Stewart-Colbert “feud”, assuming the writers’ strike does not end soon. The feud is that Conan O’Brien and Stephen Colbert claim that they made Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. It seems that when Huckabee is on the Colbert Report, he seems to do well in a primary. Colbert refers to that as the Colbert Bump, which means that guests benefit from being on his show. Jon Stewart placed himself in the mix saying that he made Conan, which means that he, too, made Huckabee.

Settling of the O’Brien v. Stewart-Colbert Feud

On a serious note, check out this Barack Obama “Yes We Can” speech set to music. This video is reminiscent to a Dr. King speech.

Yes We Can

Remember voting is very important.

Dr. Martin Luther King’s “Our God is Marching On” speech resonates still

(Source) Seattle Times staff reporter

Listen.

Listen — and you’ll hear the words of a man who was more than just an orator. Listen, and in those words you’ll hear not only yesterday’s struggles but the challenges of today.

Nearly 43 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a speech under the most trying of circumstances, forging rays of hope amid tragedy and strife of landmark resonance. On Monday, the Central District Forum for Arts & Ideas (CD Forum) will present “Our God Is Marching On,” a staged reading of that speech, at Seattle Center’s Center House Pavilion.

The reading is the fifth in an ongoing partnership between the CD Forum and Seattle Center’s annual holiday celebration. Past readings have included King’s most famous speech, “I Have A Dream,” as well as his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech.

Through his words, a much broader picture of King emerges, showing a civil-rights leader who, steeped in the African-American church experience, addressed issues ranging from segregation and poverty to nuclear proliferation and the Vietnam War.

“All of those issues are relevant today,” says Timeca Briggs, director of Monday’s stage production. “We saw in the last couple of elections problems with voting, with who gets to vote and who doesn’t. … So this is the time for this speech.”

Selma march

By March 1965, the nation’s new Civil Rights Act was on the books. But parts of the South were slow to embrace such a paradigm shift. In particular, in Selma, Ala., African Americans faced corruption, intimidation and gerrymandering on their way to becoming registered voters.

Early that month, two weeks after the assassination of Malcolm X in New York, King and more than 500 demonstrators left Selma on U.S. 80 en route to the state capital of Montgomery to tell Gov. George Wallace their rights had been infringed.

But six blocks away, at the Edmund Pettus Bridge, state troopers and sheriff’s officers attacked the group with bull whips and tear gas.

Prompted by media coverage of the assault, supporters from around the country descended on Selma two days later for a second try. But when King agreed to abide by a federal restraining order, the 2,000-plus marchers made the march purely symbolic, once again halting at the bridge.

That day, after the curtailed demonstration, James Reeb, a Unitarian Universalist minister who had traveled from Boston for the march, was attacked outside a Selma bar. He died two days later.

On March 21, King and thousands more took to the road again. For four days and 54 miles, they braved pouring rain, roadside naps and “trying hills,” finally arriving in Montgomery, a place often called “The Cradle of the Confederacy.” There — like Jonah in the belly of the whale, as one historical account put it — King faced an eventual throng of 25,000 from the capitol building steps.

They told us we wouldn’t get here. And there were those who said that we would get here only over their dead bodies, but all the world today knows that we are here and we are standing before the forces of power in the state of Alabama saying, “We ain’t gon’ let nobody turn us around.”

A history lesson

They were here to talk about voting rights.

But King saw the injustice they faced was rooted in the post-Civil War period, and he took his listeners there with him, giving focus to a speech at once broad and epic. “There were no laws segregating the races then,” King noted. But “toward the end of the Reconstruction era, something very significant happened,” he said. Segregation became a weapon used by Southern business interests threatened by the Populist Movement that had united both poor whites and African Americans.

If it may be said of the slavery era that the white man took the world and gave the Negro Jesus, then it may be said of the Reconstruction Era that the Southern aristocracy took the world and gave the poor white man Jim Crow. … And when his wrinkled stomach cried out for the food that his empty pockets could not provide, he ate Jim Crow, a psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than the black man. …

And his children, too, learned to feed upon Jim Crow, their last outpost of psychological oblivion.

“Revolutionary”

This is a Dr. King many may not recognize. That’s what CD Forum director Denee McCloud sought when she chose this year’s production.

“I wanted something people had not heard,” she says. “This was a culmination of so many things that were going on. … He goes into so many things — where racism comes from, why we are here at this place. He talks about it in terms of class, of voting rights — which we’re still dealing with. There’s still people being disenfranchised. So in that way, I thought the speech was very powerful.”

Stage director Briggs and her six cast members aim to capture the speech’s religious rhythms, the call-and-response cadences King built his prose upon. The passage above, with its potentially controversial linking of religion to oppression, gave them chills.

“How very revolutionary and forward-thinking,” Briggs says. “How out of the box. He was just heroic. Somebody could read that as blasphemy — but he was courageous enough to be honest about the role that religion played.”

The imagery of eating Jim Crow also struck a chord. “We talk about food and feeding our bodies, but he’s talking about feeding your mind and your souls and your heart,” she says. ” … What we put in is kind of what we are. If we’re eating junk, our bodies are going to reflect that. And if your mind’s eating junk, you’re going to reflect that.”

Reaching out for unity

They were on the move now.

Today I want to say to the people of America and the nations of the world, that we are not about to turn around. We are on the move now.

Yes, we are on the move and no wave of racism can stop us. We are on the move now.

The burning of our churches will not deter us. The bombing of our homes will not dissuade us. We are on the move now. …

Like an idea whose time has come, not even the marching of mighty armies can halt us. We are moving to the land of freedom.

Despite the unnatural divisions King said had led to their circumstances, the speech breathes with hope, which production members say still resonates today. “Though he goes to some really radical places in the speech, he always comes back to remind his audience that the goal is not to divide, but to connect,” says actor Lin Lucas.

While CD Forum’s McCloud hopes the reading will showcase the breadth of King’s work, she also wants “to let people know his dream is still alive today. I heard somebody refer to [presidential candidate Barack] Obama not being Martin Luther King, but Obama is Martin Luther King’s dream. King is still alive, because his dream is alive.”

Briggs says she hopes it inspires people to think and act differently. “That’s what I hope to do with all my art,” she says. “At the end of the speech, he talks about that great day, not of the white man or the black man, but of man,” she says. “He’s still holding out hope. … He’s talking to all people, saying, we can come together. And that hope is always relevant.”

A seemingly inconceivable task. King knew his weary followers would ask: How long?

How long? Not long, because “no lie can live forever.”

How long? Not long, because “you shall reap what you sow.”

… How long? Not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.

Weary road

In his conclusion, McCloud says, King offers nothing less than a spiritual call to action. “He’s taking us and shaking us and saying, ‘Listen, people — we’ve been on a long march where we’ve been physically attacked. We’re pushing though a certain moment. It doesn’t matter that the Civil Rights Act just passed — look what’s happened here.’ People were tired.”

The battle, as he said, was in their hands. Against the current backdrop of an oft-divided, election-minded nation, the speech’s relevance remains.

Listen, King was saying. Listen. And in doing so, he invoked a song with spiritual foundations but whose lyrics carried a powerful, universal reach.

How long? Not long, because:

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;

He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;

He has loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword;

His truth is marching on.

Within five months, President Johnson had signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
