The Kingfish Cafe: Restaurant Review

On Saturday, my family and I went out to do some errands and then went to the Kingfish Cafe for breakfast. I've always seen this place since it was so close to my old high school, but have never tried it! Finally, I was able to fulfill my curiosities !

Velvet Blue

*my photos on my blog are out of whack so I have to fix it ASAP-in the mean time, here's a quick outfit post!*

I love velvet/velour textures and when I saw this velveteen skirt from Forever 21 that was in royal blue, I had to pick it up! (They sold out online but I found mines at the actual store, so I would suggest checking it out ASAP!)

New !! Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette--coming soon!

I'm sure you have all heard by now that Urban Decay will be launching their newest Naked 3 palette fairly soon (hopefully this year?)

image from
Now i'm not much of a face makeup/eye makeup person but this palette looks very impressive, mainly due to the more mauve and rose gold colors involved.
It's very soft and romantic and is a bit more tamed down and girly. The packaging is evne in this lovely rose gold color with gold writing. If I wore eyeshadow, I think I would actually get this palette and be thankful I didn't get the other ones before because this is definitely my favorite looking one out of the 3 (4 if you include the basics palette).

Over at temptalia, they have a whole swatch comparison blog on this new upcoming palette so click HERE to see the some of them!

Will you be picking up the the Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette? Do you already have another one of the Naked palettes? Please share some thoughts below!

LUSH's Santa Baby Lip Tint Ltd Ed: Swatch+Review

I hopped into LUSH the other day dying to see their holiday stuff and I stumbled onto this:
Picture taken outdoors
From the LUSH webstite:

"Sweet Christmas Kisses
A deep, classic red, this tint provides a colorful moisture boost for the lips. A rich base of fair trade shea butter and cocoa butters will soften the lips and keep them hydrated through the chilly winter months, while vitamin-rich carrot oil nourishes and softens. If a super hydrating base and gorgeous color weren’t enough, we’ve also added a sweet cola flavor made up of festive date and cherry extracts! Apply sparingl for a subtle rouge tint, or more generously for a bright crimson pout. Smooth onto lips and make sure your under-the-mistletoe kisses are as sweet as can be."

This product comes in a small tin is fully packed with a very pigmented lip tint product. However, I did not find it moisturizing at all and felt it become more drying (maybe it was just the one I have?). This is definitely a product where you need to exfoliate your lips beforehand because dry flakes will show up and the pigment will attach itself to them making them stand out more.

Based off different lighting, the color can look more red/orange or red/pink (like the photo with flash). In real life, the color looks more like a neutral red that leans slightly cool (to me). As for the smell, the main reason I wanted to buy this was after reading it had a cola scent. I was expending a fully loaded, hardcore, fizzing coca-cola scent, but was highly disappointed. The smell was so faint, I have to really get my nose close to the pot to smell it and even when it is on my lips, it doesn't really linger.

The color payoff, however, is excellent, and is wonderful if you want a nice rich red whether having it subtle or bold. A little does go a long way for this so it will give you a range of what you need when it comes to the color department. If your lips are nice and soft and exfoliated, it looks like a nice matte red on. However, I would recommend a balm before hand or mixing this with a balm to have a nicer application and less drying feeling. I did find the color to last long and kind of left a staining effect, however, it did become drying and I had to put a balm on top. The color does transfer fairly easily though so be careful about getting it on our teeth and smudging. It isn't exactly a grab a go item since ou will need a mirror to apply it since it is so pigmented. I can also see this product being nice on the cheeks as well for a just coming inside from a cold walk type of flushed look.

I would recommend this as a cute gift or stocking stuffer (maybe paired up with the lip scrup which I didn't get because I still have one), for lip lovers or someone who loves red lips.
I will however be returning mines because it wasn't what I expected and I think I may have just gotten a bad one because the product was a lot drier than I think it should be. Other than that, it would be great to have if you wanted some red in your life.
They retail at $8.95 and are limited edition so be sure to get them while you can!
