Late Haul/Mini Review (PIC HEAVY)

So I went to the states and sadly, I didn't really do any shopping... I was on a budget! :( well, kinda.... anywhooo... ended up getting a few things from the drugstores since they don't carry some of the products in Canada! I'm also going to include a couple of things I got back at home. 

The names (color) of the products will be posted on the picture! I also don't have the prices for it this time - Sorry!

 *click* on the picture for a more close up look!

Make Up:

NYC Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm
- I got this because hollyannaeree (majority of the purchases I made were all because of her to be honest.. lol) said it's a super cheap dupe for MAC's Cremesheen in 'Boy Bait'. When I tried it on, it was a LOT more sheer than I thought it would be.. her swatched picture of it on her lips, made it look a lot more pigmented which kinda disappointed me.. I guess I just have to REALLY layer it on.. The smell is like a nice sweet vanilla scent.. It's kinda sticky for a lip balm. I also have it in '511A Sugar Angel' that I purchased awhile ago at London Drugs in Canada. (Sugar Angel is a deeper coral-y red)

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer/Highlight
- Amazing concealer! I don't even really need concealer/use it but I use it just to use it because I like it LOL. The formula is very nice, it's creamy and thick so it covers and blends very well!
 - The highlight is sheer and subtle, I still like it though.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss
- Very pigmented, glossy, and super pretty :) It's sticky at first but it wears down a little after. The finish is a creamy finish, I love it. No shimmers or anything. Can definitely be worn on it's own or on top of a lipstick.

NYC Blushable Creme Stick
- I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! It is suuuper lightweight and blendable!! It gives you the most pretty natural flush of color on your cheeks! It's fabolous!

EOS Lip Balm
- Not the best lip balm when you need it for chapped, cracked, dry lips.. It's just fun to have.. and it smells nice. I also got the Honeysuckle Honeydew but the scent was a little too sweet for me so I gave it to a friend.

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder
- Nice matte bronzer! Pigmentation is good enough to put some color back to your face and to contour a bit.. especially for those with fairer skintones!
I just got a back up of this because awhile ago, I heard it was discontinued but for some reason.. they're still selling it.. I guess they figured it was really popular so they changed their minds.. I don't even need a back up because the one I have is totally still brand new.. oh well. lol

 Loreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation
- Okay, I LOVE THIS. This is my absolute FAVOURITE foundation now! It is sooooooo blendable and smooth!!!! It doesn't feel cakey or anything on the skin and it lasts a decent amount of time! This color is a tiny bit too dark for me but it definitely blends in well enough for me to still be able to pull this color off! It's the perfect shade for me in the summer when I'm tanned though. I love applying this with my fingers, it gives such a nice finish and blends so so so so so well. :) :)

 Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Ehancing Shadow & Liner
- What a handful title lol! I got this because my friend used the two bottom colors mixed together and it was so pretty.. when I saw the rest of the colors, I fell in love.. aren't they pretty! The pigmentation is good, all shimmer finishes (duh). 

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow
- Very creamy, pigmentation is decent. As for creasing, I am not too sure yet because I didn't really get to test it out yet. Very blendable but when you blend too much, it will get patchy and wash away. 
I know, that dent saddens me... it happened when I first tried to open the packaging.. ugh :(

Maybelline Eye Studio Eyeshadow Quad
- Can't say too much, haven't tried it out yet. I've lightly swatched it and the pigmentation was okay for swatching it very gently. 
Weird how the colors are pretty much identical to the Revlon creme shadows huh? lol

Nail Polish:

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Nail Polish
- I decided to grab this because I have the matte version that I accidently picked up of the Sephora by O.P.I: Metro Chic (which I love but I also gotta put a top coat on cuz matte is so ugly). I love the color, it's a tad bit lighter than Metro Chic. The brush is flat and weird... but I kinda like it. I didn't put a top coat, just had a base coat and it did last a little over a week before it started to chip!

Sally Hanson Nailgrowth Miracle
- This is my holy grail nail polish/base coat! I have tried other nail strengthening ones and none of them has worked the way this does! It seriously keeps my nails super strong and grows fast! My nails have been suuuuuuper weak and brittle and thin when I got them done and I ran out of this and tried using OPI's Nail Envy and it didn't do anything for me. A week of using this Nailgrowth Miracle and I can already really that my nails are starting to get strong again. :)

So I also went to ROSS and found this eyeshadow trio kit from Natural Beauty by J.A. Cosmetics. At first, I was very skeptical because I have never heard of the brand and I didn't know how good it would be. I was debating for a very long time and finally I decided to just try it out because I fell in love with the colors! 

This kit came with 3 mineral eyeshadows, 2 eyeshadow brushes: a contouring brush, eyeshadow brush, and a brown eyeliner (I didn't take a picture of it because I didn't really care for it and threw it out)

- I've swatched these shadows many times, and have worn this whole look together twice and I love it. It's very pigmented and the colors are way too gorgeous! It blends nicely and it stays put! The brown shadows do stain a little bit when I swatched it on my hand.

The brushes are also fab! I really like both of them. They work nicely for the kind of quality that they are. 

This whole kit (+ the eyeliner) was $7-9 I believe.
I also went to an Urban Outfitters and I got two items.

Stila ' The It Girl' Palette ($10)
- I love this palette, especially for the price for 3 full sized shadows!!!! I mainly got this for Stila's star eyeshadow: Kitten. The pigmentation is quite nice, however major fallout as you can see on my palette! But I love Chloe and of course, Kitten! Lame is an okay color - I'm not too crazy about that one, it's kinda lame. (ha ha ha! PUN INTENDED!! LOL. Well actually, lame has the little accent on top of the e so....)

I also got a blazer from UO as well and I love it!

Last but not least, my friend had to exchange something from Guess but she didn't end up finding anything so she told me to grab something and it would be my super late birthday present :P 

So I grabbed this cropped sweater.. it's super cute, short and cropped, baggy/loose on the arms.

That's the end of it!!! I don't think I am missing anything else.... Hope you enjoyed it! I am suuuuuper tired and my back hurts.. Been editing and writing this post for a couple of hours.. O_O

Off to bed I go! Thanks for bloggin! :)


EOTD - Peeping Tom / FOTD / mini haul

I called this look "peeping tom" just because there's a peep of a fire berry color on the lids with the smoky gray around it.. so when you open your eyes, you can't really see the berry color, just a peep until you close your eyes... :)


- no flash -

- with flash -

Products Used:
- Estee Lauder Deluxe Pure Eyeshadow Palette: Berry Ice [on lids]
- Maybelline Stylish Smokes Quad: Natural Smokes, Outer Corner Color [outer corner blending up and around towards the crease, and into the inner corners / lower lashline]
- MAC: Wedge [transition color in crease, below brow bone]
- Lancome: Statuesque [outer v to deepen it a little]
- MAC: Brule [brow bone]
- Buxom Lashliner: Leatherette [line the upper lashline, and tightline]
-Ardell Lashes: #107


- Revlon ColorStay: 240 Medium Beige

- NYC Bronzing Face Powder: 720A Sunny
- NARS Blush: Deep Throat

- Revlon Colorburst Lipstick: Soft Nude

Okay, so I went to the mall for a bit and I dropped by Superstore and picked up some stuff. So when I got home, I really wanted to try out the lipstick/lipgloss that I got! :)

PS. I know I still gotta do a haul post from the stuff I got when I was in the states... I'm just sooo lazy... hopefully that'll be the next post?

Perfect Pornstar Pink... in my opinion hahaha!
It is Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipstick: 006 Pink Blush!

It's a super barbie pink shade. I love it.. :) 

The finish is nice.. it's not totally matte but it has an okay shine to it.
It's smooth and wears very comfortably on the lips. 
As for how long it wears for, pretty good I would say.. I took it off after it was still on my lips for over an hour.. and I also have their 'Airy Fairy' which lasts a good amount of time as well.

On top of that, I got this gloss from Joe Cosmetics: Sheer Pink Rose Transparent. I've never used/tried any of their products from their cosmetics line but I heard some of their stuff was pretty good... I walked by the section and this color instantly caught my eye!

The swatch of it, is a little dark... sorry. So in reality, it is a very nice baby pink shade.
At first I didn't look at the name of it, so when I got home I was like crap! "transparent?" and was worried the formula would be a sheer transparent color. Fortunately the pigmentation is actually fabulous! It's not sheer whatsoever.. definitely buildable!
As for stickyness, it is a tad bit sticky but nothing like the disgusting MAC lipglosses :)

Hope you found this somewhat helpful or just entertaining to read! Thanks for bloggin' with me. :D
I got lots more for the future.. just be patience.. :) The more followers I get, the more I feel motivated so thanks to the new/old followers! <3

Late bday outing/girls night out

Since I missed my legal birthday back at home, my bestie took me out for a super late birthday outing! Originally we were just going to go to a lounge but we decided to hit the club after :)

 So first we went to Sip Lounge to grab some appies and drinks! My bestie came to pick me up without giving me notice so I had to rush my outfit.. I had no clue what I was going to wear! So I didn't really think it'd be a big deal soo.. I outfit repeat. Big deal!! It happens :( lol the key is to switch up the way you wear it ;) like so...


Dress: Forwever 21
 Blazer: Urban Outfitters

No accessories! :( that's what happens when you get rushed.. sigh.


And my very first legal drink... hehe ^___^

So we decided to hit up the club after to Republic
On the way...

ps. We NEVER have any super good pictures together.. it's strange. Really strange. =/

Apparently I have horrible camera skills lol...

It was a good night with just my bestie and I! Despite the creepy boys.. but ya'll know how it is!! It ain't a good night until you get hit on ;) hahaha! :P

My clubbing virginity is now taken away!!!! I was a good girl and I waited... as should everyone else because clubbing when you're underage is kinda... creepy.. for the guys at least.. because little do they know that they're grinding with some 14 year old and you're grinding with some 30 year old.. O_O

I mean look at AKON!! LOL.. let's not get ourselves into another situation like that ;)




Hi, hi hi!!

I am sorry for being away. Thank you for your patience. I am back. I went away to be with my lover boy soooooooooo.... I did pick up some stuff - not a lot. Mainly drugstore! (I wasn't allowed to shop) :(

But expect a haul post. I would've did some EOTD's if I had a good camera... I suck. Sorry!

Expect some heavy pictures of my man and I as well.

Do that all later when I get settled back in at home!
