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!)
ELF Peachy Keen Blush

Stila Bronze Smudge Pot
Hard Candy Intergalactic Eyeshadow
MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
MAC Gesso Eyeshadow
Wet 'n' Wild Black Cream Eyeliner
Covergirl Lashblast 

NYX Natural Lipliner
MAC C-Thru Lipglass

I took SO many pictures and only ended up liking two of them, go figure. But I hope you guys enjoyed my first ever FOTD. I probably won't be doing this again for a little while because of the camera issue but I must admit... I really liked this :)  Please give me feed back and let me know what you think!

2. I have four piercings and one tattoo but that's still not enough for me LOL. It's true what they say...tattoos are addicting even if they hurt!

3. I usually don't drink anything when I'm eating a meal. I get scolded all the time but it just feels weird to.

4. I don't like sushi! I recently went to my first sushi bar and though I only had the California Rolls I still felt kind of disgusted. I don't even like fish but if I did I would like it to be cooked  :)

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.
