My manicure started chipping so it was time for a fresh coat. I decided to go with a Revlon polish I’ve had for awhile, Revlon Top Speed in Vintage which is a beauty deep berry color. I am looking forward to purchasing some more colors from the Top Speed line. I love how quickly it dried and how it stayed glossy. Even though it contains a built-in top coat, I still finished my manicure with my typical Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat.

Last night the EPIC 6 hour long Sandy Relief concert took place in front of a crowd of over 13,000 people at MSG along with 2 Billion viewers that got to watch the concert on 37 tv stations throughout the US and more than 200 others worldwide. It was also streamed on more than 30 internet sites.

While most of us could have done without this outfit…

I applaud ALL the artist and host that took time out to help NJ/NY in this time of dispar. The performances were incredible and the love and support was more than anyone could have imagined.

The lineup included: Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Bon Jovi, Roger Waters, The Rolling Stones, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, The Who, Billy Joel, Eddie Vedder, Chris Martin, Michael Stipe, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear and there was endless host such as Jimmy Fallon, Chris Rock, Kristen Stewart and Stephen Colbert just to name a few.

The ticket sales alone  have already raised $35 million!

 I am now familiar with the brand Be a Bombshell because of Ipsy. They make some of the best pigmented lipglosses I have come across. They consider “Hot Mess” to be a true red and semi-sheer. You can layer this gloss for a more deep red that gives your lips a very glossy look that is sure to make a statement. It is not sticky and the sponge applicator is soft and works very well. Visit the Be a Bombshell website and receive 30% off all purchases until the end of the month with the code: IPSY30

 A highlighter on paper – what a brilliant idea! Basically you just rip a sheet out and lightly press and swipe on your desired area for a gorgeous glow. This makes your complexion glow without the messy residue that other highlighters tend to leave. Tip: Don’t forget to swipe this across your collar-bone. Visit the Mai Couture Website through 1/15/13 for 20% off all purchases with the Code: IPSY1212

I have yet to try the Mirabella primer but did swatch it on my skin. It was very silky and is also weightless and oil-free which is always great.  This product can be used for the face and eyes and because of its size is great for traveling. Visit the Mirabella website to receive 30% off any purchase until 1/31/13 with the code: ipsy

NYX is a great brand at an affordable price which most of us can always appreciate. I loved the color my Glam Bag came with and I can’t wait for a night out to test it out. Want to try it out? Visit the NYX website and enter code: IPSYDUST for 30% off all Loose Pearl Shadows.

Already obsessed with Urban Decay, receiving the 24/7 Glide-On pencil was such a treat! I’ve been wanting to test it out for a while and I am beyond happy with the results. I would not recommend this if you want to do a smokey eye because it does not budge. This pencil  is so creamy and really does “Glide-On”. It also comes in 7 other colors which I recommend trying if you like to add a pop of color to your eyes with liner.

Also included was a $20 credit for Just Fab!
