How I store my mini makeup collection

This is how I'm storing my makeup collection so far; it's not much and even if It was I wouldn't want to show off. The containers on the left I got from a store called containerstore, if you want to know where it's located by you just go to http://www.containerstore.com, and the makeup brush holder is from Michaels craft store, and so are the vase fillers, last but not least bigger one on the right I got at a discount store around my way for a pretty cheap price around 7.99 if I'm not mistaken.


MAC blushes

I bought these two blushes from MAC today, I first said to myself okay just go in and get the peachy toned blush you've been wanting, but as a makeup junkie it's so hard to control yourself with so many goodies basically screaming for you to buy them lol. The one on the left side is called "Mocha" and its a Soft plum-pink (Matte) gorgeous color to wear in the daytime becuase it looks so natural; and the one on the left is "Sincere" Muted beige/coral (Sheertone) another beautiful color that looks super natural as well. I realized most of my blushes all had shimmer in them and don't get me wrong I love that glowy-dewy look to my cheecks but to were out in broad daylight it can be a little too much you know what I mean ? So, yea that's about it I didn't get anything from the Hello Kitty collection because none of the items really wowed me.

Orgasm Vs. Dainty

This a just a comparison of NARS "Orgasm" blush and MAC's mineralized blush in "Dainty" honestly they're nearly identical but NARS may be just a little more pinkish than dainty. Both are like a soft pink with golden undertones, they give you a sheer but gorgeous color to your cheecks but if you have one of them I really don't think you need the other. I have both becuase i love blushes, all kinds and I run through them quickly.

Tea Tree oil-Deep cleansing wipes

What product claims:
Best if you want to:
Minimize breakouts, tone your skin and unclog pores with a convenient, one-step wipe that sweeps away make-up, impurities and excess oil. How it works:

-Triple-action organic Community Trade tea tree oil, which is naturally antiseptic and soothing, controls oil, combats existing blemishes and prevents new ones without over-drying skin.
-Community Trade peppermint essential oil cools and refreshes skin.
-Pack of 25 biodegradable wipes makes it convenient to cleanse skin while you’re on-the-go
Price: $13.00

My thoughts:
I'm loving these wipes! They smell delicious, it's been around two weeks since I've been using them every other day and there so convenient. I like to remove all makeup before cleansing my face with my regular cleanser just to assure I'm removing everything possible becuase washing your face one time with a cleanser does not remove all oil, dirt and makeup. They're a tad pricey but tea tree oil is great for acne prone skin, and although I'm using the Mario Badescu products (which work FANTASTIC) but they don't sell wipes lol. So I totally recommend everyone to get these at "The Body Shop". They smells great, removes everything, and your face doesn't feel tight afterward.

Revlon lipstick/ nailpolish

So I stopped by CVS and picked up a few things like the two Revlon lipsticks and the ESSIE nail polish as well as the new INSTANT-DRI nail polish by Sally Hansen. I also had been wanting a messenger bag in a tan-ish color so i saw one that i really liked in billabong so i bought it and they also the exact same bag but in a dark purply color which i did not get but possibly will sometime in the future.













The one on the left is "Sparkling cider" and the right
is "Twinkled pink"

Loreal eyeliner precision tip review

WHAT THIS PRODUCT CLAIMS:
Slanted precision felt tip. L'Oreal presents Telescopic Eyeliner, for a precisely defined and intense eye look. Telescopic Eyeliner's slanted precision felt tip is angled to allow you to quickly draw the most accurate line. All day wear; Glides on without smudging or smearing; Ophthalmologist and allergy tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers; Fragrance free. Made in Germany.

MY THOUGHTS:
This eyeliner really does allow you to make the thinnest most delicate line ever. Dries pretty quick and doesn't smudge at all, I have to say I'm truly impressed this liquid eyeliner actually lives up to the whole "precision" thing. Although i find it a little hard to draw on a thick line because the tip is really fine and stiff but that's okay. I defiantly recommend this eyeliner for everyone but especially for those who like that soft natural look, which comes when making a very thin line but if your more into the really thick line you may have a little trouble using this eyeliner at first (I'm one of those who like the thick black line but this eyeliner is great for just a everyday look). My advice is to put it on in little strokes instead of trying to do it in one swoop.

Loreal Telescopic Mascara review

WHAT PRODUCT CLAIMS:
L'Oreal introduces Telescopic lengthening and lash by lash separating mascara, the first mascara to telescopically lengthen your lashes and separate them lash by lash.

MY THOUGHTS:
I stopped by CVS the other day just to look around, the mascara I was using (my favorite) was basically done so instead of buying the same one I decided to buy Loreal telescopic mascara the original price is like $8.99 or around that but it was on sale for 4.99 so i decided to give it a shot. This mascara does exactly what is claims lengthens and separates my lashes so that you don't get that clumpy look. Gives you natural looking long lashes great for everyday use. But if you like volume and lengthings you'll only receive lengthening with this mascara, personally I'm using this on a regular basis but I also love when I have that thick, long, dramatic looking real lashes which this mascara does not do. The Maybelline Define-a-lash volume mascara does give me that dramatic look. Overall do I recommend this mascara defiantly it just gives you the prettiest natural looking long lashes; no one will even know you have mascara on.

Why I never put my hair completely up

So today I decided to curl my hair or make it wavy with my new curling iron, I liked how it came out but I also clipped my hair in the front back. This is the reason why I never clip the front of my hair back or the reason why in all my videos I either have my hair down or up with the two bangs hanging on the sides of my face but never completely up. It's becuase I have a round face and chubby cheeks!! And me, NO likey this lol but yea whatever, won't be clipping the front back again or ever picking it up into a full pony tail unless my bangs are hanging (long bangs) as I call them.

Make Up Forever HD Primer Review


WHAT THIS PRODUCT CLAIMS:
HD Microperfecting Primer A lightweight, oil-free complexion corrector that enhances the skin's texture and primes the skin for makeup application. Deeply nourishes, moisturizes, and softens the skin, creating a glowing effect. Creates a protective layer on the skin allowing foundation to glide on easily and last longer. PRICE:$32.00 SIZE: 1.01 oz

What else you need to know:

#5 Blue (adds radiance to fair skin/ reduces minor imperfections)

MY THOUGHTS:
I bought this product about two months ago, and i honestly have only used it 3 times becuase i lost the receipt and i had thrown away the packaging it came in thinking i would love it; there's a lesson learned KEEP RECEIPTS UNTIL YOU USED THE PRODUCT AT LEAST 3X AND DETERMINE IF YOU LIKE IT. It feels really watery which is a good thing if you want just want a light weight moisturizer but i don't feel is creates a semi-barrier on my skin so when i put on foundation it goes on smoother and more evenly. And i actually feel that its a little streaky if you don't blend it in right away (I purchased #5 it has a light blue tint to it) so when you put on a setting powder you see powder set into the streak where you didn't blend as well becuase it dries pretty quick. So overall, I wouldn't buy this product again, not a horrible product but doesn't do much for the price.

Mario Badescu Review

My thoughts:
So I've been trying these products for a couple of weeks now and they seem to be working with my skin. I have noticed my cystic acne minimize in size by applying the buffering lotion before i go to sleep; when i wake up of course it's not completely gone but its not as red nor swollen. Most of their product smell great and don't have too many crazy ingredients which is a good thing, to me the less ingredients the more natural and pure the product seems to be but than again I'm not a chemist so don't go with what i say lol. In my opinion, you have nothing to loose by trying out their samples, its free of any cost and if they didn't work for your skin you just have to stop using them and the good thing is you didn't waste a dime.
