I Thought She Died...

Hello my amazing followers yes it is true I came back from the dead! I know it has been way too long since my last post but I hope you all can understand my situation, and with that said I feel like I should delete my previous post because that just brings back unnecessary memories.

Anyways school is in session now not to mention I am looking for a new job so I will try my best to blog as frequently as I can.  I also got a new puppy!  I got him about two months ago and he makes me so happy.  His name is Kona and he is a little yorkie and he is so so cute I will have to put a picture up of him in my next post!

I am so glad to be back!! Did I even need to say that?

On a different note, I recently was looking through my stash of makeup and I am happy with it but of course I want more LOL!  Before I start buying more, though, I was thinking of getting rid of some of the things that I don't use.  I don't feel like I am completely ready for a blog sale because honestly, I don't know how the whole paying thing would work.  Yeah i know paypal but I am not computer smart haha so it all seems a little confusing.  I do want to try it first and then maybe in the future I will have an actual blog sale.  If anyone has had a blog sale before I would be so grateful if you would email me and explain to me how to set it up.

Now, I want to test this whole sale thing out with one product but in order for me to sell it I would have to know how everything works.  This product is MAC Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre from the Spring Forecast Collection.  Are any of you interested?  If you all are I will get into more detail about the product however I can say that it has never been used.

To wrap it all up, if someone could email me about the blog sale ordeal that would be awesome and if any of you are interested in the product feel free to comment below.  Lets just say this is a preview and if enough people (meaning at least one person LOL) wants it I will probably make a new post just for the blush ombre.

I missed all of you and THANK YOU SO MUCH to my new followers I cannot believe I am over 100, it is insane to me!  Maybe there will be a future giveaway? ;)

FOTD: Turquoise Jewel

I got a lot of positive feedback from my first FOTD so I thought I would try it a second time  :)  As you can tell from the title, this is a colorful look. I hate to admit it but I used to buy colored eyeshadow just because it was pretty. Shame on me... I know. But it's summer time now and I want to play with some of my bright shades. I usually just dust on a very neutral eye and then pop some color on the bottom lash line but today that was not the case.

Maybelline Superstay Concealer
Prescriptives Mineral Foundation (only to set the concealer)
NYC Plaze Pink Blushable Creme Stick

Closeup (I took this without flash because with it on it totally washed out the color... hopefully you can kind of see the crease work)

NYX Milk Jumbo Pencil
Palladio Sky Blue Eyeliner
Maybelline Turquoise Jewel Eyeshadow
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow
Loreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner
NYX Disco Queen Glitter Liner
Rimmel Max Volume Flash Mascara

Revlon Peach Petal Super Lustrous Lipgloss

 Sorry for the cheesy smile LOL I couldn't keep a straight face!  The same thing happened last time... I took a ton of pictures and only like these few. I would have taken more but the camera died. So anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this and once again, I apologize for the quality. I think I might just do one more of these until I get a better camera. You know what they say... three is the lucky number  :)

8 Questions Tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Ariel to do this and I am excited!  The way this tag works is really interesting. So the person who tags you makes up eight questions and once your finished with answering theirs, you come up with eight of your own questions.

1. What is your dream job?
My dream job and what I will be studying for is to become a nurse. More specifically, I want to be a labor/delivery RN because well... I love babies! They are so freaking cute LOL! I also want to find a part time 'job' as a puppy sitter (and there is such thing as a puppy sitter... my friend worked as one!) I would love to sit around for several hours and play with puppies... what more could you ask for?

2. What is your favorite fragrance for summer?
I didn't have to think about this for more than a second. It's my newest fragrance... DKNY Be Delicious! I used to always smell it in Sephora and as you all know I finally purchased it in my last haul. I am obsessed with it and I got a ton of compliments! Absolutely perfect for summer!

3. How do you take your coffee/tea?
I like my coffee with cream and sugar.  I feel like that's a really obvious answer as I'm sure many people like theirs with cream and sugar but I always eye how much of each I put in so I can't tell you how many spoonfuls and stuff like that.  I also like the flavored coffee creamers like hazelnut or french vanilla.  I like my tea plain... I used to add just a little bit of honey in there but now I'd rather do without it.

4. What is your most important beauty secret?
Less is more. I think make up is something that is supposed to be used to enhance ones beauty and not to cover it up by piling on foundation and powder and so on.

5. If you had an all-expenses paid vacation anywhere, where would you go?
I would go to the Philippines! My boyfriend is half filipino and he is always telling me how  much he loves it there and how nice the beaches are. We are hoping to go later this year so an all-expenses paid vacation would be amazing LOL!

6. If a genie popped up in your lap right now and offered you 3 wishes, what would they be?
My first wish would be that all my family members are healthy and happy. Second wish would be to have my old dog back. He was a pomeranian named Prince and he was my baby but we had to give him away. And lastly, I would wish to be rich!  Who wouldn't?

7. If you could only have breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert foods for the rest of your life, which would you pick?
Probably dinner because there are a variety of foods you could eat whereas breakfast consists of pancakes and waffles and when I think of lunch I think sandwich haha... that's weird.

8. If you were Hello Kitty, what color hairbow would you wear?
LOL what a cute question! I guess if I were Hello Kitty I would wear a black hairbow because black goes with everything  :)

Now for my questions...
1. What are three things you love about yourself?
2. Where are your favorite places to shop?
3. If you have a tattoo(s), what is it and why did you get it? If you don't have one, what would you get and why?
4. Where do you see yourself in 15 years?
5. If you could live somewhere for a month where would it be?
6. What is one thing that you could eat everyday?
7. What are some things you like most about having a blog?
8. If you could choose to have all the products of one cosmetic line, which one would you pick and why?

I tag...
If anyone else wants to do this feel free!

A Little Bit Of Everything

Remember when I told you all that I was upset and that shopping makes me feel better? Well, one thing in that sentence has changed. I am happy camper once again and everything in my life is back to normal now... thank you all for your kind comments  :)  Anyways, shopping did make me feel better and man did I shop!

I didn't have enough time to take a picture or swatch each and every product but no worries because I listed them below!

I also got a new fragrance for summer that I LOVE!
It smells amazing and is perfect for the hot weather because you just feel so fresh with it on!

And onto the last thing that I am extremely excited about...A new phone! I have been wanting a new phone for so long and right when I was about to get one I was given this and I love it! Just a LG Neon... nothing high tech or touch screen or anything like that... and that's just how I like it LOL! It's simple and cute and I wouldn't ask for anything more. Now if I had my boyfriend's phone I think I would go crazy... way to confusing for me!

So that's my latest haul! I am positive that I will be reviewing some of these products but if you want me to review a specific one then leave them down in the comments and you will see a review in a near post  :)

Attempting My First FOTD...

I know I told you all in my everything ramble that my next post was going to be a haul... well not quite yet. I like to order online a lot and things are taking forever so hang in there because it's coming  :)

Meanwhile, I was overly excited about getting a new camera but I doubt that's going to be soon so I decided to give my old cam one more chance. I tried taking a close up of my eye but there would always be this shadow thing and without flash you couldn't see the colors at all and blah blah blah... it just didn't work!  I was so frustrated! Calm down May haha.

So I've said this before that I am a total neutrals girl and I have done and loved many brown smokey eyes and this is just another one to add onto the list. 
What's up with the tacky lip pout?I didn't even realize LOL!  Oh and don't mind my horrible eyebrows... I was trying something different and I hate it but it's too late to fix them now.

Coastal Scents Medium Camo Quad
Prescriptives Mineral Foundation (only to set the concealer)
NYX Barely There Eyeshadow (I use it as a highlight... it's gorgeous!)

An Everything Ramble

Hi beauties. I just wanted to chit chat a little about my blog and other things as well.

First I want to thank all my new followers and a personal thank you to KelliKelso for putting me on her blog roll. I love her blog and I highly recommend everyone check it out!  I appreciate it so much girly thank you  :)

Next thing is blog posts. I know I have been doing a lot of reviews/overviews and I really enjoy doing them and will continue to. However, I want to start FOTDs (face of the day) and even OOTDs (outfit of the day). The only reason why I haven't yet is because my camera SUCKS. I have a hard time even getting pictures of the products to be clear because my cam is old school. I plan on getting a new one very soon so I am super excited and I hope you all are looking forward to that too :)

On another subject... things in my life right now are not so great. I won't share too much but lets just say I haven't gone a day without crying so Lashblast's Waterproof Mascara is a necessity. I'm trying to keep busy throughout the day and I really love finding the time to work on my blog. It gives me something to do and I really want to thank you guys for reading! It keeps me inspired so X's and O's to all of you!

Sorry if this was a snooze fest LOL I just wanted to get some things off my mind. Oh and expect my next post to be a haul. Some people sleep when they're emocional, some people eat, and some people, like me, shop.

Lancome Loves

A couple days ago I finished two products from Lancome... and I miss them already.

The first product is the Definicils Mascara. I was actually given this from my mom who received it as a gift but doesn't use mascara. My first thought was how good could this be? Everyone talks about the Hypnose so I wasn't expecting much. Well, I was wrong. I love it!

(I saved these products for the purpose of this post)

The wand was thin which was something I wasn't used to but learned to really like. It grabbed each and every lash and the formula is just right. It gave a little more length than volume for me but I didn't mind because there were no clumping problems whatsoever. I will most definitely be purchasing this mascara in the future.

The next product is the Bi-facil Makeup remover. There really is no point in showing you the empty bottle but here it is anyways...

This lasted me months and months so it was a great buy. It isn't oil free which I actually prefer because I feel it really breaks down the makeup and takes it all off. The water and oil separate in the bottle so you have to shake it up before you use it. Basically, it looks like this when you first get it.

As you can see there is a separation in the middle and when they combine it is the greatest makeup remover that I have tried. It removes waterproof mascara so easily it's mind blowing. I would repurchase in a heart beat.

Have you tried these products?

Overview: Illamasqua Lipsticks

Recently I have been grabbing for these lippys because they are SO pigmented and since they are matte, the staying power is outstanding! I only have three for now but I do plan on getting more on my next trip to Sephora because they are fabulous!

Here they are. L to R: Sonnet, Obey, Liv

Swatches! Sonnet is a peachy nude, Obey is a coral/apricot, and Liv is a bubblegum pink.

Yes, glossy lips are a must have for me in the summer but don't get me wrong, I LOVE matte lips just as much. With that said, these definitely stay on your lips once you apply. They are drying, but all you have to do is apply some lip balm before hand, blot some off, and then apply and you will still get that same matte finish without it being so dry. Problem solved :)

Have any of you tried Illamasqua lipsticks? If so... what colors? I can't wait to try more!

Not So Popular...

Hey beauties! Sorry for the lack of posts this past week... I have been really busy with work. On top of that everyone decided to come visit at the same time... both my aunts, my uncles, and my cousin. It was hectic and it still will be for the next couple of days but I'm not complaining... I love family :)

Anyways, today I wanted to share a product with you guys that isn't talked about much... and I think it should be. Everyone raves and raves about the Loreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner... hell it was even in my previous wishlist in April. My sister has always used a liquid liner from loreal too but it wasn't that one. It was this one...

I'm showing you this in the case because I wanted you all to see that there is only one little difference. CARBON BLACK is not stamped on it and maybe that's why it gets pushed to the side and forgotten.

So it is a felt tip pen, just like the black colored one is. I have been using this everyday since I got it and it is so simple! Before this, I couldn't use liquid liners AT ALL. It was just too difficult.

I know... why would you choose this one instead of carbon black? Too be completely honest, I believe this one is super black also. I can't compare the two because I still haven't picked the other one up but if you have it please let me know how the finish is. The only difference I can think of is that It's not super matte... if that makes sense. It has a little sheen to it when dry but It's not noticeable unless your inches away from your eyes.

This product doesn't get very much love so why not show it some? It deserves it. Whoever out there that is looking for a new liquid liner I suggest the Loreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner... in the GOLD packaging.

Bring Out The Wedges!

I was digging through my shoe rack this morning and found these way at the top...

How did I forget about these?? I bought them a couple summers ago so I don't remember where exactly I got them from but Forever 21 sounds about right...
Now I'm not really a fan of heels. Not at all actually because of one thing; they are hard to walk in. Stilettos? Don't even get my started...

Wedges, I think, are totally wearable. I love the platform of the heel and the thickness allows me to walk easily. These will be perfect for summer.

Haul: Elf Studio Line

ELF will always hold a place in my heart because it was the very first line of makeup I bought from and it was basically what started my passion for makeup.

My first purchase was from the regular line where everything is only $1! I haven't bought much from them in a while not because I didn't like the products but simply because I began wandering around in different brands and kind of... forgot about the line. I still get email notifications from ELF for sales and I thought I would take advantage of the 50% off on the entire Studio Line since I've heard good things about it. *Lots of pictures because there are lots of swatches*

Oh and I got to play with these products so I am capable of giving mini reviews. First and foremost, the Powder Brush.
People have said that this brush is fabulous for liquid foundation but as I have mentioned before, I've never tried liquid foundation. I can tell that it would work though because of the denseness and when the time comes, I will try it for that reason. As of now I use it for bronzer. Overall it's a multifunctional brush and it's super soft too!

Speaking of bronzer... I also ordered the Warm Bronzer.

I didn't even bother taking the picture without flash because you couldn't even see them. So the farthest on the left is all of them swirled together and then the following is each square separately. This product is way too powdery!! When I swirl my brush in it it looks like a sand storm... plus it smells weird.

Now on to the blushes!
Top: Left is Peachy Keen and right is Mellow Mauve. Bottom: Left is Gotta Glow and right is Candid Coral.

L to R: Mellow Mauve, Gotta Glow, Candid Coral, Peachy Keen. I LOVE these blushes because they are so pigmented! I'll admit they are a little powdery but no where near how the bronzer is. By the way, Gotta Glow is a gorgeous highlighter and I don't own NARS Albatross but I hear they look very similar.

Eyeshadow time.

Swatches L to R: Pebble Saddle, Mystic Moss, Sand Dollar, Amethyst, Wild Wheat (I know you can't really see it... It's a nude color), and Raspberry Truffle.
With flash:
Without flash:

I don't have a base under those shadows and the pigmentation is still really decent. With $3 a pop you can't go wrong with these.

The only product I wouldn't recommend is the bronzer but I was very satisfied with everything else. Do you recommend anything from ELF that you love? I would love to try new things for my future order :)

Ini Mini Miny Fendi!

I love love love sunglasses. I buy many many pairs because I tend to lose them or break them because I'm not extremely careful. No worries though because a lot of the ones I own are the cheap ones that you buy off the street or that come with deals... you know like the 2 for 20. I adore them all and sometimes I feel like I don't even need to get designer sunglasses because, well, they are all gorgeous!

This time around, however, I wanted something a little different. Something like this...

Fendi Sunglasses. I will always go for big sunglasses... that's just my thing. Lately I have been wearing my aviator style ones and I love them but like I said I want a change once in a while and that is why I picked this beauty up. I love the white rims and the frames fit my face perfectly. It was expensive yes, but it is a good investment. It was meant to be... or that's what I tell myself to soothe the buyers remorse.

Picture time! Tell me what you think :)

Have a great weekend!

You Lost Your Chance

Chanel's fragrance in Chance. I believe there are three different ones... the one I have is EAU Tendre and here is what it looks like.

I got this as a gift probably a couple months ago and I DID give it a chance (wink wink) and I really tried to at least like it but I just can't. It is described as a young scent, white musk, seductive and innocent, blah blah blah. I am horrible at describing what things smell like but to me, it has a strong floral scent and I hate floral scents. I am someone who loves fruity scents more than anything. My only other favorites are sweet scents but even those don't overcome my love for fruitiness. For example, I gave my sister the Aquolina Pink Sugar where as I chose the DKNY Be Delicious.

Chance is a no no in my book.

Something totally off topic... I have been obsessed with this drink right here.

Photo from Google because I ran out today. Of course.

Lipton Green Tea (any brand is fine but I usually stick to lipton)! It's yummy, healthy, and it's great for your skin. *It also helps with weight loss* I try to drink a cup a day though sometimes I forget but even then I have really noticed a difference in my skin. It looks healthier and I couldn't be happier. Why didn't I do this earlier?? So for those of you who haven't sipped the miracle, save yourself the question that I just asked myself and pick up some green tea at the store. Trust me... you'll thank me later.

I Like Me Some Orgasm

Girls and... boys... get your heads out of the gutter! I thought long and hard about what this title should be and this is the best I could come up with at one in the morning.

I am talking about NARS lipgloss in Orgasm.

Like I said, lipglosses are a must have for me in the summer time so lately I've been pulling out my favorite ones. I rediscovered this gloss that I bought several months ago and fell in love with it yet again. Now I don't own the blush but the descriptions are the same for both... a peachy pink shimmer. And that's exactly what it is.

This lipgloss is a little pricey at $24 a pop but it is GORGEOUS to say the least. If you wanted to splurge on a lip product I highly suggest you invest in NARS Orgasm. It's orgasmic! Hahaha...

Overview: NYX Megashine Lipglosses

Since summer is just around the corner, I thought this would be a proper post. A must have make up product for me whether I go shopping or swimming is lipgloss. The light coverage and shine they give are perfect for those hot days where a lipstick doesn't sound too appealing.

I hate NYX Round Lipglosses because of one thing... the scent! I am pretty damn picky about the smell of a product and I seriously could not stand those. The Megashine Lipgloses also have a scent to them but in my opinion, they smell delish!

Anyways, on to the important stuff... the swatches!

From left to right: French Kiss, Beige Pearl, Dolly Pink, Sweet Heart, Natural, Sugar Pie, Smokey Look, Beige

With flash

Without flash

As you clearly see... these glosses are intensely pigmented and they are not sticky whatsoever. I don't mind stick lipglosses at all but for those of you out there who don't like them these would be great for you. There are so many colors to choose from and on top of that they are really affordable! I will be keeping at least one of these babies in my make up bag at all times.


Love It Or Hate It #1

I am going to start doing this "love it or hate it" thing which is basically going to be a personal opinion/review on whether I, or hate a product.

Today I will be talking about Rimmel's Max Volume Flash Mascara...
I have it in the color black. The packaging is so cute because its PINK and better yet it is from the drugstore so it is super affordable. But, not only do I adore the packaging, I love the product as well!

Here is the wand and it isn't all that special really... just a typical mascara wand with plastic bristles. Combined with the formula however, it's magic.

Abra Cadabra...

With two coats it lengthens and gives volume and doesn't clump. What more could you ask for in a mascara? I, for one, love piling on mascara to get the fake lash effect and with this, I didn't even need to do it. Ah-ma-zing!

I think it is obvious that I love this mascara. I definitely recommend it so the next time you're in your local drugstore perhaps you can check it out for yourself :)

Eyeliner Comparison

Well... I'm back :) Are you guys tired of me apologizing for being gone? I'm sorry! Everything in my life right now is hectic, to say the least! Summer is coming however and I WILL be posting more frequently I promise but please hang on for now.

On to the good stuff... I finally figured out the camera ordeal and I have decent quality now! So to celebrate I thought "why not take some pictures?" That would be the only right thing to do. Lets get on with it...

Urban Decay 24/7


Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner

So here are the two swatched on my hand...

The one on the left is the Urban Decay and the one on the right is the Prestige. You tell me which one is darker. Many people are under the impression that the UD pencil is the best one out there... darkest, creamiest, and longest lasting eyeliner. I used to think that as well that is until I purchased the prestige. Obviously the prestige liner is much darker and in my experience stays on MUCH longer and it is just as creamy. After I let these stay on for about two minutes I ran the smudge test by rubbing my fingers across both of them and what do you know? The prestige liner didn't budge where as the UD liner faded some.

Do I even have to say it? The Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner is the winner! It is so black, its creamy, it stays on, AND it is half the cost of the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner. I suggest you all try this out before you, lack of a better word, waste your hard owned cash on the over hyped UD.

It seems like I'm hating on Urban Decay but I really think they have some great products. I have a couple palettes and some lipliners which are nice but I have been loving THIS a lot...
Yes, ladies and gents, the famous UDPP. I usually use MAC's paintpots as bases and I have several other eye primers but I finally gave in and bought it and I'm glad I did.

Orange You Gonna Have a Tart?

Pathetic title numero dos. In my defense, I am trying to give off a very obvious hint in the title. Get it? Proabably not...

In my previous post I told you I was going to figure out the whole camera thing and guess what? I did! It isn't perfect so please excuse the blurriness. I tried to put it on ten thousand different settings but it still didn't work and I have no patience so... yeah. The problem is it doesn't focus whenI take pictures close up but when taken far away it's crystal clear. Whatever, I (probably my boyfriend) will get it figured out and it will be picture perfect in the future.

Anyways, onto my first review! Again I apologize for the poor quality but I'm working on it.

Essie Tart Deco

I got this gorgeous shade at Ulta a few weeks back and I am loving it. However, it is not true to the color in the picture. It looks extremely peach but in actuality it is a bright orange (hence the title). The formula is amazing, two coats is all you need to get an opaque finish. If you are looking for a more peachy color I suggest China Glaze Peachykeen which I have also and love just as much. Tart Deco has "spring" written all over it so you couldn't pick it up at a better time. Overall, this polish gets a thumbs up from me.

Just A Thought...

Three words...

How ironic. My last post was a wishlist and now I'm talking about not buying any makeup until I finish ten products?

LOL I am totally kidding! I am in no way, shape, or form physically and/or mentally ready for project 10 pan. It just isn't going to happen. I did, however, attempt to do it a while ago and I would say for my first try it wasn't bad. I ended up finishing about six products and then, well, I gave up. I know I know not good but I was pretty damn proud of myself :)

Anyways, I haven't yet posted actual pictures that I took but I have two excuses for that. Number one, I have no idea how to work settings on my old camera, and two, I am super busy with work therefore I don't have the time to learn. I promise I will tonight though and I will get it down. With that said, be prepared to see reviews, FOTD's, all that good stuff.

Before I sign off, I want to thank my followers for simply following my blog! It means so much to me and I honestly don't give a s*** (told you I curse) whether I have one or ten thousand followers because just having anyone read my blog is good enough. Yes I know this was cheesy but you knew it was bound to happen. XOXO

Wishlist 4/11

Lately I have been trying desperately not to buy any makeup because to be completely honest I have way too much already! There is one small problem with that though...

I am an addict therefore I can't be helped :)

So here are my list of things in which I plan to buy, one step at a time.

1. MAC Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation
You all should know that I have never used liquid foundation and that is because I feel it is way too much coverage than I need. I have a mineral foundation that I use on occasion for when I have one of those "bad face days" but with all the good reviews I have seen on this powder foundation I want and need to try it.

2. MAC 130 Brush
Since I want the foundation I of course need to have the brush that came out with it as well. They are like two peas in a pod. Nothing else more to say.

3. LORAC Multiplex 3D Lipgloss
The name of these lipglosses say it all. They are so unique and I want more specifically 3D and Clich which to my luck are the ones that are always sold out.

4. Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude
This is a peachy coral blush that I must have at some point. People have raved about these cream blushers and I want to see just how good they are.

5. L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black
I seriously could just run out of my house and go pick this up but I haven't... why? Simply because one, I am loving my gel liners and two, I don't do real well with liquid liners but since this one has a felt tip I'm thinking I should try it.

6. YSL Rouge Volupte #26
These lipsticks have always been on my wishlist but they are so expensive! I am a lipstick fanatic, especially for those peachy shades. Plus, I hear they feel so good on the lips and whats better than that??

7. Lancome Hynose Mascara
People have told me a lot of good things about this mascara. I already own the definicils mascara which is pretty amazing WITH the primer so I want to see how this one does.

Well, that's it for my wishlist as of now. All I can say is you gotta work hard to play hard!
