Summer Update

Hey all!

I felt like doing yet another personal post, because I have some things I want to talk about. So first off, Summer has been here officially for like a week, and we didn't get Summer weather yet, alot of people are still wearing coat. It's been super rainy also. And this is not the Summer weather we usually get, I know we're not in California, but I've seen better summer days. So hopefully we will get a better month of July. Speaking of July, how is it already July? We are now past halfway of the year. Which is so scary. So many things I didn't get to do yet in 2013. Woah. I'm thinking about going to festivals this summer, I really want to go to concerts and stuff. Go to the beach. Camping. All the summer fun stuff.

With all that, I've been working alot, so maybe that's why I haven't seen the time go. Which brings it up to leaving for college in September. I'm going in Graphic Design, as you may or have not seen on one of latest blog post. I'm super excited, I've always had in interest in arts and technology. So that seems like the right career option. Blogging/Youtube/Beauty community has made me a discover a big passion for beauty, makeup, fashion, social media, marketing, journalism and all that.    And with my Graphic Design course there's alot of options to make my passion into a career! Woohoo! Anyways enough with the future talk, I have blog post dedicated to that if you care! :)

Lastly as you may have heard GFC is leaving us tomorrow, so please follow me on

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Berry Allure

Hi lovelies! Makeup brands has been coming out with new products left and right, it's so hard to keep up. Especially when I'm trying to save up for College, and I have been Wal-Mart/any drugstores so that I don't buy too much. Although as a makeup addict, I have told myself that it was okay to purchase a few beauty products per month without going overboard. So for the past few months, that's what I've been doing. And this is my newest purchase: Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Berry Allure.

Revlon has been introducing new lip products/colors to their collection. And Revlon being known for their lip products, I was super excited about trying this.

For some reason, I find the packaging super cute. ahah! Although I believe it's smaller than the original ones. Which is not positive. But to be honest, lip glosses last forever so that doesn't really bother me!

 In the tube it looks super dark, but on the lips it's a semi-sheer dark fuschia pink with no shimmer in it. As for the texture/application, it's a very light weight and thin formula and is non-sticky... so the formula is a win for me! I wouldn't say it's the perfect lipgloss if you're looking for something that will last 24h, because it will not. On my lips it last only a few hours, but it's a gloss that is really
easy to apply so I don't mind.

Overall, it's a very good gloss, I love the texture and the color is very pretty. It's not as dark as it is in the tube, but very sheer so be cautious with that! I haven't really checked out the 11 other colors, but I will check them out as soon as I go in town. Aha!

Currently loving

Hi beauties! Hope your week has started right. I have a busy week! Ah :( Anyways, today I will be doing a post about things that I have been loving using.

Recently I've been loving natural makeup, using my Revlon Lash Potion mascara, it's a great mascara that gives volume and lenght, I haven't been wearing that much eyeshadow, but instead of using my using my usual black eyeliner I've switched to brown, using Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Eyeliner in Brown, to be honest it's not the best gel eyeliner I've used. It's not easy to work with and the color won't stick that well. Anyways, I love the look brown gel eyeliner, if you guys have any recommendation please do let me know, cause I really like it! To complete the natural eye look, I've been using Rimmel Scandaleyes in Nude on my waterline. Looks way more natural than white! I just love the look of it. With the same eye look, I've been loving using Revlon Pink In The Afternoon (warm pink shade with a hint of coral) and Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade (mixture between baby pink and coral/peach shade).

Which beauty products are you currently loving?

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Downtown Brown

So many new drugstore beauty products that I want to try! Maybelline recently came out with a new line of Color Tattoo Pure Pigments. Color Tattoos are very popular in the beauty world. So when I bought these, I had high expectations.

They came out with 12 shades. The one I picked is Downtown Brown which is a golden bronze. It's a lovely neutral for everyday wear that will get people asking what you have on your eyes. It reminds of the very popular Color Tattoo in 'Bad to the bronze'. To start off, I will say that I have a love-hate relationship with pigments. They are too messy for my taste. So I just own very few pigments. But these one are quite easy to work with, they blend well and are finely milled.

They last a very long time. They barely fade. Downtown Brown is the only Pure Pigments I've tried, but I can say that it's quite pigmented. As I don't have that much experience with pigments, I'm happy that there's some drugstore pigments eyeshadows that I can try without breaking the bank!

To avoid fallout and creasing, I would suggest a primer and a Color Tattoo that is close to your Pure Pigments. For Downtown Brown it would be: Bad to the bronze.

As I have only tried one, I can say that I am pleased with it. Downtown Brown is great everyday color that gets compliments. I'm not too sure if there's other ones I want to try but I would like to experiment more with the Pure Pigments!

What are your favorite Color Tattoo Pure Pigments?

Talking Future + Update.

Hi lovely people.

Today I felt like doing a post not beauty related. I was pinning stuff on Pinterest and I saw that quote which is quite relative to my life at the moment. Ah, Pinterest, you're so inspiring.

I went to college for a year for a course that I needed for University. Went in primary education for    a semester and while I was there, I realised that it wasn't really what I wanted. Meanwhile, I have discovered the beauty community and my interests really expanded. Blogging has made me discover so many options that I would like to do in the future. I have discovered a big passion for beauty/makeup/fashion/writing/design/marketing/makeup artist/editor and all that. But now that I really think about it, it only makes since that I would be interested in those things. Since I've been young, I have been a really artistic person, a teacher I had when I was a kid, told me that she always saw me in arts. I really liked reading and desiging my own clothing brand (I have a name brand and all that) and I am really trying to get back into that again.

Apart from that, the quote that I saw on Pinterest really stood up to me. Because I am going to college in September in Graphic Design and I'm sure that it's a perfect career for me, because I really like designing/writing. One of my dreams would be to have my own company of Graphic Design or work for a makeup brand/fashion/a magazine/music company. But you know, there's always that doubt, that voice in the back of your head, saying: what if I can't find a job? what if it's not for me? etcetcetc... But you know, that quote is very important for me right now, because I need to not be afraid of failure but pursue what I want and be free, and happy with the career I will end up with. Something good will come out of it, I know it!

"follow your dreams that keeps coming back, it's your destiny"

what are you studying/want to study after high school? :)

UPDATE: I have created a new email address, so if you want to contact me, it's:

Review || NEW: Covergirl Clean Whipped Cream Foundation

Today, I will be reviewing a new product from Covergirl. The Clean Whipped Cream Foundation. In my makeup collection, to be quite honest, I don't have that much Covergirl products. But when I saw this, the packaging caught my eyes instantly and I thought: that's a oretty cool concept! So I picked it up in the shade 305, which I believe is the lightest shade. I'm not a pale person, but I still feel like it's a bit too dark for me at the moment!

Covergirl Clean Whipped Creme Foundation in 305.

I really like the packaging. I like the fact that's white, which really suits the name clean... but I'm sure it wont be like that for long. White is a color that gets dirty fast, which is a bummer! Also as you may have noticed alot of product goes in the cap.

Consistency/Texture: Thick and mousse-like/whipped. I have never owned a foundation like this to be honest. Now, I want to try all those types of foundation. I can honestly say that this is one of the best foundation that I have tried. It's really rich and creamy.

Application: The application of this is so amazing. Very easy to apply and blend. I used my Real Techniques Buffing Brush for application. (Really need to wash my brushes asap! OOPS!)

Coverage: I'm gonna say it's a medium coverage to a buildable full coverage. Doesn't look cakey and looks very natural, you will almost feel like you have no foundation on! It's a very light foundation, perfect for the hot summer days. 

Scent: More on the negative side, the scent is not something I really like, it smells kinda too make-up(ey) for my taste mixed with something else that I can't put my fingers on.

I believe that this would suit all skin types. I have oily skin myself, and I have not noticed oily-ness throughout the day: I use a good primer, powder and a makeup spray, so maybe that's why! :) Also, it doesn't change color, which makes me so happy, because let's just say that there's nothing more annoying than that. 

So if you want an easy to apply foundation with medium to full coverage, light, with a very nice finish and breathable foundation this is the one for you!!

May Favorites

Hi beauties! Kinda late with the May Favorites, but I still wanted to do this post. Monthly Favorites are one of my favorite post to write/read. Also, one of the reason that I haven't blogged for a while is that my computer can't connect to the wireless-whatever-you-call-that properly. It's almost as if other places in the house I can have some wireless but not in my room. I have Windows 8, and tbh, I'm still not quite used to that. I've been using other Windows all my life and they we're all quite similar and W8 is completly different. Ugh.

In the month of May, I haven't really adventured in buying new beauty products. I don't know if I can exactly say this but I'm kinda in a spending ban. I'm trying to rediscover beauty products in my overly excessive makeup collection. But anyhow they are still some new products here. (makeupaddictprob). So enough with the blabbering, let's jump right into May Favorites.

Milani Brow Fix Brow Kit: For the past few weeks, I have been using Revlon Brow Fantasy. But I rediscovered one of my favorites, this brow kit is amazing. I use brow 1 and as you can see I used it alot. It's the perfect shade for my brows and the application is just flawless. 

NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Boho Chic: This is also one of my rediscovered beauty product. I really like cream blushes for Summer and this is one of a few that I own. For a full review, I have one on blog which you can read here.

Wet n' Wild Blush in Heather Silk: This is also one of my love for Summer. It gives a glow/dewy look, which I really like for Summer. This blush is really pigmented so I would suggest you apply it with a light hand. The texture is really soft and buttery. It's a matte plummy pink shade.

Rimmel Scandaleyes in Nude: I'm sure you've all heard about this little gem. I won't say much other than it's the perfect nude color to put on your waterline, looks better and less harsh than a white eyeliner.

Nivea Lip Butter Vanilla & Macadamia: First off, I will start by saying that I'm sad that we only get to have 2 out of the 4 Nivea lip butters. If I base myself off of this one, it's super moisturising and the smell, is divine!

Revlon Pink in the afternoon super lustrous lipstick: This is one of my favorite lipstick for summer, or just one of my favorite ever. This is one of the lipstick that I will repurchase, it's a staple in my collection! It's a warm pink shade with a hint of coral I would say. It is subtle while still being noticeable if that makes sense. Just the perfect color for Spring and Summer. I really like the application of this lipstick.
