For Bitten

Ulta Professional Nail Lacquer: Forever Bitten

I really like the dark brown look on my nails. If you look closely, this nail polish has a tint of burgundy with specks of sparkles in it. I like the rich bold colors on my nails during the winter cold season and eventually, my color choice gets lighter (pastels colors) as the days gets more brighter and sunny in the spring and summer season.

Happy New Year All!

Back to blogging now about my love for makeups and everything that has to do with beauty. I haven't logged on to this website up until now. It was a busy time for me after spring of 2011 and finally now I have the time to commit and share my thoughts about my love for makeups and more. So if you're interested in reading my blogs or if you just happen to stumble on here, welcome to my beauty blog!

Updates: My new website name is

If you're wondering why my beauty blog name is no longer islandgirl,'s because the name iwritebeauty defines who I am to my audience. I enjoy writing about beauty and expressing my thoughts with no limits about the beauty world from makeups to fashion. Hence, the name "I write." So if you're interested in reading, add my blog to your list and if you're not, keep moving please. Thanks for stopping by and happy 2012.

Check out new makeup pics coming soon.

Hey y'all! Check out my new toy. The Temptu babbyy! I finally bought it from Sephora @ Uvillage during their recent private sale. It is a limited edition system plus airpod foundation duo for only $165. Normally, this makeup system sells for $225. I didn't want to miss out on the sale so I rushed to Sephora and bought this big baby! What I love about this air brushed foundation is that it gives me a natural flawless look. The airpod I use is in 009 golden. The foundation feels so light on my skin as if I am not wearing any makeup at all. Luvin' it so far.

Sephora Favorites Best of Basics Makeup Starter Deluxe Sampler!

Check out aprilathena7's beauty blog. This holiday giveaway contains Sephora's favorites best of basic makeups starter deluxe sampler. My favorite one is the Urban Decay eye potion. I've heard a lot about it like how it works great as an eye primer. I still have a full bottle of my "stay don't stray" by Benefit, but once It's gone, I definitely will switch to Urban Decay's eye primer potion or hopefully I will win this prize next month so that I don't have to spend some dollars on it! Wishful thinking :)

What does your makeup say about you?

Just for fun ;)

What does your Make-up say about you?
You look extemely wise, and balanced by your applied makeup. People see you as not overdone, too desperate, or a wannabe. You look exactly right. People think of you as soft and sensitive by your makeup choices. You almost always look good, and you have an excellent esthatic sense and a great fashion sense. You know when you look wrong, and you experiment with new colors, but only satisfied when you are one hundred percent sure you look nice.

MAC lipsticks

My current MAC lipsticks. Never really owned any MAC lipsticks before up until I purchased these three. From left to right are baby's on fire, pink nouveau and viva glam I. The first lipstick on the left side of the picture (baby's on fire) has specks of glitters in it. It's very moisturizing on the lips but after awhile, the color rubs off. Pink nouveau is my favorite summertime lipstick. It’s a matte texture and it reminds me of a bubble gum pink. Viva glam I is also a matte texture that stays on the lips for a very long time. It looks like a dark red apple lipstick. What are your lipsticks?
