HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

When makeup is your favorite thing ever, you really kind of love Halloween, right?  We whipped out the wigs and created some fun "undead" looks last night.



Happy Halloween to all of our Darlings!  Be safe and have fun whatever you do today!

October Ipsy: Spooktacular!


We have had mixed feelings about some of our subscription programs as of late, but one service that continues to impress us is MyGlam, which is now known as Ipsy! 

We loved the chevron bags that came with our October bags…so so cute…and maybe our favorite bags so far!


We were equally impressed with the goodies inside the bags:


What’s Your Type Mascara by theBalm
Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer Stain by mirenesse
Pequi Oil Treatment by Couture Colour
Be a….Bombshell Eyeliner in Onyx
4 individual Eyeshadows from Coastal Scents

We absolutely love that this month’s bag was SO makeup themed, as makeup is our first and favorite passion.  Every single product has proven to be of great quality and we love the colors we got!

Thanks, Ipsy, for continuing to surprise and delight us monthly with fabulous Glam Bags…we heart you!

What was your favorite product in the October bag from Ipsy?

EOS + Alice in Wonderland = A Match Made in Heaven!


Anyone who is a fan of soft lips probably already knows all about EOS Lip Balms.  We’ve been using these spherical delights for quite a while now, and never leave home without at least one in our purses.  They are super moisturizing, and come in lots of yummy flavors.  Also…their unique shape makes them easy to find in the bottom of a cluttered purse.  :)

Anyone who knows WyoSparkles at all knows that we love any and all things Disney related, as we refuse to grow up and secretly dream of retiring and living at Disneyland for the rest of our lives.

Imagine our delight/euphoria to learn that EOS was teaming up with Disney to produce a trio of our favorite lip balms with an Alice in Wonderland theme!

Because our shopping options aren’t always super diverse, we had to search high and low and out of town…but finally got our hands on this adorable set!  Isn't it dreamy?


We love all three Alice themed flavors…Blueberry Potion, Watermelon Wonderland, and Sweet Vanilla Nonsense…Yum!


And…as the folks at Disney are known to be detail oriented darlings, you’ll notice the usual oval-ish notch on the sides has been transformed into a “Hidden Mickey” on each balm…Love!  :)


We even love the little diorama, featuring the Mad Tea Party, inside the box…we don’t want to throw it away!


Thanks so much to EOS and to Disney for creating such an adorable set and for keeping our lips happy and soft!

Have you tried EOS lip balms?  What is your favorite Disney character?

It's a Masquerade Ball....err Just K and J Having Some Fun!


While we do our best to try new and fun things with our makeup on a regular basis, we sometimes feel the need to go out on a limb and try something really new and fun.  

Last night we got together and each did our own take on face paint masks.  We loved our creations and had a real Masquerade BALL in the process.

What do you think?


Have you tried different looks with makeup and/or face paint?  What is the most creative thing you've done to step outside of your "norm?"

2 Minute Review: Primed & Ready Face Primer by Prestige


When we do our Glam Nights, most women are very excited to focus on fun eye makeup and lashes, because they want to step out of their comfort zone and try something new and exciting.  Bold colors and drama are always easiest to present via the eyes…so inevitably that is what people look forward to.

When Glam Nights are finished, however, most of our ladies are over the moon excited about something that they never expected:  Face Primer.

Face Primer is not the most glamorous of beauty products…and many women we've met with have never heard of it...or wonder why they even need it.  Once we whip some primer options out, however, and they see what they’ve been missing, they never want to go without it again.  We heart Heart HEART a good primer, but it is almost impossible to describe what it can do for you…if you’ve never actually used it.  Trust us, though…you want to use it.

Serving as a base for your makeup, a good primer will smooth uneven skin and fine lines, making the surface of your face feel better than it ever has…at least since you were 5 years old.  Makeup applies more evenly, and wears much longer, when you apply it over a primer…it’s just that simple.

If you’re not using a face primer, or if you’re looking for a new one, we’d love to recommend Prestige’s Primed & Ready Face Primer, which we received among our Prestige goodies for review.


Primed & Ready by Prestige is packed full of vitamins and antioxidants that are great for your skin, has a creamy formula that absorbs easily, and feels awesome once it’s applied.  It’s VERY reminiscent of our favorite primer of all time: Photo Finish by Smashbox.  As with other Prestige products we’ve reviewed…the biggest difference between this primer and those from “high end” lines is the price.  As far as we can tell, the payoff is the same as you would get from a much more expensive product….so why would you want to pay more?


Primed & Ready Face Primer gets a big seal of approval from WyoSparkles.  You can find it for around $11.50 at www.prestigecosmetics.com, or at Ulta!

What’s your favorite face primer?  Have you tried this wonder by Prestige?

Happy Birthday, Kristi: Ode to My Greatest Friend


Readers and Friends…it’s me, Janine.

I wanted to take a quick moment to let you all know that today is a day that I cherish.  Today is a day that I am grateful for every single year.  Today…marks the anniversary of the birth of my very best friend/sister/confidante/ally/sounding board/shoulder to cry on/cohort/comrade/partner-in-crime….KRISTI!


Kristi and I have known each other forEVER.  I literally cannot remember a time in my life when she wasn’t a part of it.  We went on our first adventure together before either of us can remember…”running away” as toddlers, and we have never looked back.



Kristi has seen me without my makeup…without my hair done…and without all my wits, and somehow she continues to put up with me anyway.  We have had each other’s back through good times…through bad times…through sad days and bad dates.  Through shopping sprees and bad hair-cuts…through Disneyland Vacations and Yellowstone Road Trips.  Lip synchs and dance parties, rollerskating and waterskiing.  Slumber parties, birthday parties, costume parties and pity parties.  Football, basketball, baseball and volleyball…and every other game you can throw in between.   Chasing butterflies and chasing boys and chasing dreams.

Kristi and I have worked, played, laughed, cried, flown, walked, driven, sang, danced, slept and stayed up all night together.  There is nothing that I have been through…that I haven’t been through with her.  She is the epitome of what a good friend should be.  


Happiest of Happy Birthdays to you, Kristi.  Thank you for being my friend through every single thing I’ve mentioned here…and for all of the things we’ve sworn never to mention again…hahaha.  Thank you for a million memories that I would never give away.  I don’t know what my life would be like without you in it…but I know that it would be less fun…and less beautiful.  I love you!

Janine
