JCat Beauty's Liptitude Review

Sooo a friend of mine got one of these babies from ipsy and LOVED it! She ordered a few more and they did not suit her so she gave them to me to try and I really like them. I am typically not a huge fan of shiny glosses.. I am a lipstick girl myself.

Lets start with the exciting details, shall we?

You can get these beauties here at JCat Beauty's website. They are $5.99 each which is a good price for lip stain. They come in 14 different shades. I plan on buying Fantasy Dreamer before fall!!

The colors I got were  Lipbanging (on left LLS111) and  Scandalous (on right LLS106). I really like the way this lasts. It has a minty tingling thing going on as well. It has great holding power but I would definitely recommend a nude lip liner to keep it from bleeding.


Lipbanging is my favorite of the 2! It is very good with my ton and I have worn it with a bronze glow look before. Scandalous is a little bright for my liking . The one good thing about these, is the color payoff. The swatches are one swipe of the product!

In my opinion, these are definitely worth the try and for $5.99 they are easy on your pocket as well!! Shout out to Jcat!!

Gwynnie Bee!!!!

So I recently signed back up for thing called Gwynnie Bee!

Basically what it is, its Netflix for clothes!

I know the first thing that comes to mind is, EW used clothes... But no its actually really nice. Almost like having one of those closets from Clueless but it takes a few days to get the outfit.. But it is nice. Using Gwynnie Bee has helped my confidence some and helped me find a new style for myself.

As most of you know from bearing children I gained some weight over the years and I am working to take it off.. SOME of it. I love my curves and I don't want to lose too much weight really I just want to be healthy. Gwynnie Bee is very much for women with curves! They have like the CUTEST stuff really. A lot of vintage type dresses and skirts which really drew me in and not to mention they give you the first month FREE!!!! You can choose from 1 to 3 items out at a time!!

I have not received my new box yet but when I do I will do another post about the process and what I got :) If you want to try Gwynnie Bee yourself I placed the link below!!

Thanks for reading pretties!!!

Maybelline Blushed Nudes First Thoughts!

Sooo for my first "First Thoughts!

I finally committed to buying Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette. I have been eyeballing it because I really wanted to add some rose colors to my collection. I have not tried the regular nudes palette BTW. I have Urban Decay Naked and its practically a dupe, but I will buy it soon.

So far, I like it but I just bought it yesterday. I did do some swatches (which I will post soon) and I like the pay off of most. Some of the lighter shades don't show up well. ( I am a MAC NC35) It comes with sponge applicators but I don't use them. I do keep them for projects and such.

Today I wore the shade second from the bottom right today on my lid and blended it with Urban Decay Naked and got a lot of compliments at work. I paired it with a nude pencil from the Fergie collection from Wet & Wild and OF COURSE my fave Hard Candy liquid liner. It lasted all day with out creasing.

I look forward to playing with it this week and letting you guys know what I think!!

Have you played with this yet? What was your thoughts?

I would like to hear what combos you did with it!!! Follow me on Instagram @tatswingsandnerdythings and #tatswingsandnerdythings so I can see!!!

Until next time!!


Hey there guys and dolls!!
Thanks for coming on by. So this isn't my first time at the rodeo.. I fell off my bull and its time to get back on and ride! I used to have a beauty blog like AGES ago! I had a lot of lovely followers however... something happened with me. For those who are returning (for whom I am grateful!) I kinda disappeared out of no where and I am sorry. I was struggling with somethings in the background. For my new followers WELCOME!!!

So kids it's story time!!

So when I disappeared, I did not do it because I fell out of love with makeup! NEVER THAT!
I went through some image problems of my own. I fell into a depression that I thought I would never get out of. I fell out of love with me and fell away from someone who has always loved me unconditionally, God. I was so concerned how others felt I was not being myself but truthfully I did not know who I was. So with that being said I have spent the past few years falling in love with myself.

While self and I have had our ups and downs, we are stronger than ever! And working everyday to grow closer to Him!

So what's new?

Well I am happily married nowadays to a very handsome ginger whom I love dearly! We have been married for 2 and a half years now! (This pic is like 3 years old... But its my fave!)

Here is recent pic of me... After I lost the teal and purple hair :( #grownupprobs

My girls... well for you moms out there.. Time flies when you are raising kids huh? Starting next week, they are all in school.... *wipes tears* Thank God for waterproof makeup..

I have a few more tattoos and shiny new piercings from last we spoke as well..

Patience young grasshoppers I will show you soon!!
