I know I just gained a handful of followers recently from the giveaway and I'm sorry to disappoint you with a lack of posts! I need some time to gather my thoughts and get the motivation to do what I love. Life has been pretty hectic. I recently just bought my first car but there's a few things I need to get fixed with it which is costing a bit of money.
I'm going to try and record a couple of hair videos on my webcam and put them up in the next few days :) It won't be the best quality, but still fun to watch I think!
Other than financial problems, i've been alright! I'm going to see Die Antwoord next wednesday with my boyfriend and the trip out of town will do me wonders :) I'm very sure once we return i'll have my groove back :)
So today I was inspired by the beautiful changing colors of the leaves that are all around me! It's officially Autumn here in the USA and I'm loving it! October is my all time favorite month and Halloween is my favorite holiday! I have a few ideas that i'd like to post, so hopefully I can get to it! Anyways, here is the video!
I finally have a pretty darn good quality video! I'm so excited! I thought I would make a video to correspond with the palette I'm giving away :) I hope this video was helpful and that you guys enjoy this look :)
-Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette
-Too Faced shadow insurance
-Eyeko Fat Eyestick (the gold one, can't find the name!)
Did you guys know that I really hate most mascaras? No? Well I do. They just always are too greasy or too clumpy! I have very long thick lashes, so it's very quick for me to tell if a mascara is going to work or not. But this mascara, WOW. It's everything I've ever wanted and more in a mascara!
This mascara comes in three different colors:
The packaging for this doesn't beat around the bush with it's shape. It's just a long, cylinder shape with a rose gold body and a shiny gold for the cap. That shiny gold is also used for the print on the packaging. I really like how simple, yet elegant this is, It's not all bulky and awkwardly shaped. Just a plain `ol tube of mascara.
Now let's move on to the wand. Like the packaging, this wand is sleek and simple. The tip of the wand has a wonderful shape, almost like a bullet. The end is tapered a bit which makes it very easy to coat those lashes on the inner corner of your eyes, along with your lower lash line. As with most products, the formula gets clumped up at the end of the wand, so be sure to wipe off the access back on the tube.
I don't believe this is waterproof, seeing how it runs down my face when I take a shower. But it does come off fairly easily with makeup remover/vaseline. Oh, a very good note about this (not there are any bad notes) is that this stuff DOES NOT flake on you. I find that it keeps my lashes coated well throughout the day without budging at all. You can quickly put this on the ends of your lashes for a simple, more natural look, OR, you can go all out and add a couple coats for thick long lashes.
Would I buy this again? Hell yes. I'm very picky about what makeup I wear and i'm very much sold on this mascara. Doesn't mean I won't try out others though. :)
If you have any questions about this mascara, please feel free to ask in a comment below! I hope you all enjoyed reading this and I'm sorry it took longer than expected to get this review up! Been feeling kinda crappy the past few days, but am a lot better now!
Hope you all are having a wonderful week :)
I recently reached 20 followers and decided I'd like to host a small giveaway :)
I'm still gathering some prizes, but keep an eye out over the next week for the giveaway post! <3
I've mentioned this bad boy quite a few times! It's about time I get a review on it for you guys :)
Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner in Trooper is a form of liquid eyeliner. It comes in a small selection of other colors which I will list below.
Skater - deep blue
Maya - deep brown
Lapdance - rich plum
Biker - dark smoke
They all come in a sleek black packaging that is very pen like. Silver lettering describes the product's name along with sizing information and the place it was made (korea)
Now the best part about this liner is the tip. It's not your typical felt tip liner by any means! It's actually a brush! It's very soft and flexible, making it easy to do quick and precise strokes for that perfect wing.
"Achieve dramatic eyes and create temporary tattoos with this water-resistant must-have that brings out the artist in you. The innovative brush tip makes it easy to make your personal vision a reality."
I haven't made any temporary tattoos with this, nor do I think I will. I can vouch for that water-resistant part though. Once this liner sets, it will not budge. I've showered and cried while wearing this (not at the same time) and it stayed put. As soon as makeup remover or vaseline touches this though, it comes off with ease WITHOUT staining your eyes! One of the other things I love so much about this liner is the fact it doesn't leave anything behind after removal.
I should also mention a couple of side notes on this product.
After opening, this will be good for 6 months
Color payoff is very very opaque
0.02 fl oz/0.55 mL
I hope you all enjoyed this review! I have another one that will be listed in a day or two on the Loreal Voluminous Full Definition Mascara!
Thank you for reading, and I hope you all had a great weekend!

Hey guys! I have a look/tutorial for you all that's a bit different! I didn't want to talk because I haven't been feeling well, so I just put music over the video. But everything will be instructed below in detail along with brushes and products used! :D Hope you like!
-Too Face shadow insurance
-NYX jumbo eye pencil in MILK
-Wet N Wild Color Icon pencil liners in Purple and Black Black
-Kat Von D Autograph Pencil in Wonderchild
-Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca palette
-Australis eyeshadow trio in Exotics (THANKS MARY)
First, start out by priming your eyes! Then, you'll need a nice white base of some sort to help those pretty blues to pop! Take a blue liner (kvd autograph pencil) and draw out a cut crease. Go over that with a purple liner (wnw pencil liner) and do your best to blend it out a bit! Take your pencil brush and get a little bit of the middle purple color from the Lust palette by wnw. Press it over that cut crease and then blend it out. Don't worry abot fallout, it will get covered up! Take the middle shade from the Australis Exotics trio and apply that over the white part of your lid. In the center of the lid, apply Mad Max from the Mi Vida Loca palette, keeping it away from the inner corner, but bringing it into the outer corner.
Get some of the dark navy matte blue color from the Pride palette and apply that to the outer corner of the lid. No whip out your handy dandy 88 palette and your e.l.f. defining eye brush and get some of that light purple shade I pointed to. Pack that over the crease and blend out. Then move on to that true Purple shade at the bottom row of the palette and apply over the crease as well, and bring it under your bottom lash line. Take some of the NYX jumbo eye pencil again, and bring under that bottom/inner corner of the lash line. Blend it out and then go over it with a light pink shade that has hints of purple.
Almost a lilac color. Pack it on good and blend it in with the purple! Get your fluffy brush out and a nice cream colored highlight shade. Apply under your brow bone, and BLEND BLEND BLEND out the edges of that crease!! This step is CRUCIAL. Now get out that precision brush again and your Lust palette and pack on that darkest matte purple color and apply to the crease. Bring it under your lashline as well! Go back in with that first light purple color on the 88 palette and your little defining brush and blend all those pretty purples out! Get some more of that highlight shade on your fluffy brush and blend out some more. Apply that light blue shade from the trio of Exotics in that inner corner of your lid. Groom your brows, and apply some mascara! Tightline and line your waterline with a better liner than mine -n- Powder yo self, add yo blush, and WHAM add yo bright ass orange lipstick.
I hope you guys enjoyed this look! I may do more looks like this, with the music played over the video in the future! And I also want to note that you can use WHATEVER blue and purple shadows at your disposal! Don't feel obligated to have to use the same products listed or don't think you can't pull of this look with what you already have! :D TREAT YO SELF (I like to say that time to time)
Anyways, I hope you all have a great weekend wherever you may be! <33
