Eh

Drew Barrymore’s Flower foundation? an ok foundation. the best? no. The worst? NYX still holds that title in my opinion lol.

There are other foundations out there that can be better than this, but for drugstore it’s eh
I’m not even gonna review it because the foundation’s been out for over a year and at this point I can’t say anything that hasn’t been said before.
All in all, it made my skin a bit oily, which I don’t appreciate. and it has no SPF, which I also don’t appreciate.

Eh

just eh lol

Also I decided to bring it back with the pig tails today :) Highly successful ^_^

Flower Beauty Foundation

0081047401406_300X300I’ve been wanting this foundation for a while because it’s by Drew Barrymore and I really like her, but I’ve just never gotten around to finally buying the foundation.. Today, my fiance, decided he wanted to buy GTA and I decided since he was going to buy the game, that I would get something as well.. So as I am walking through the isles, I see that the Flower makeup is on sale and this $14 foundation is not $7.. After flipping out about it being half price, I got it and raced home with it and can’t stop looking at this pretty bottle lol
I’ll be trying it out tomorrow and I hope it’s as amazing as it looks.
I’ve heard some really good things about it, so I’m looking forward to it!

:D!

The Eyebrow Dilemma

I AM SERIOUSLY SO SICK OF THE EYEBROW ISSUE!
We have bendgate, hairgate, dogegate, and all these other mock watergate wannabe scandals, but no one is talking about the real issues here. WHY ISN’T ANYONE ADDRESSING BROWGATE!??
Seriously!?

Do you have a minute to talk about our lord and savior, the eyebrow?

It is the single most important thing on your face.. ON YOUR FACE, GUYS!

and you do this!!?

Eyebrows+fail_a455a0_3358445

HOW DARE YOU!

A proper eyebrow will compliment your face and make you look like the fierce bitch you know you are.
Now, I know it CAN be complicated. I did have my own eyebrow mishaps – all types of mishaps! I even shaved off my eyebrows once -_- but I tried, damnit! Everyday I tried until I learned how to do it right.
Figure out what your natural shape is and work with it!

No one is perfect, but there’s no way you need to be lookin like this

d3c50596200275037212254c575a6230

WHY DO YOUR EYEBROWS NEED TO LOOK LIKE A BENCH? WHY?

I see so many people on a DAILY basis that I wish I could attack with an eyebrow pencil and show them the heresy they’re committing.

Shenanigans

This month’s Ipsy bag was not really something I was amused by. Not because there was anything wrong with it, but because they’re just thing that don’t appeal to me, so I’ll be cancelling that service, unfortunately.

Aside from that, I’ve been keeping myself entertained by doing a lot of schoolwork and focusing on myself. Education is something that so important to me and I am so happy to be able to do this again, it’s amazing. This is something I’ve wanted for a while but wasn’t able to have before until now, so I’m way excited. All that schoolwork has left me no room for anything else, which sucks, because I really want to blog more and not disappear. I

Also, I got this really peachy nail polish by Wet N Wild, and I really love it, and I know it’s supposed to be Fall and everything and you’re supposed to switch to the cooler colors, but  let’s be real. I live in Florida. It’s summer year-round. So I thought so harm in getting a really nice warm color and proudly parading the streets of Orlando with it :D

Also in my arsenal, I have the L’Oreal True match Lumi foundation, which I had heard really great things about, but JUST got around to trying, and I was FLOORED… I don’t know if it’s just me, but it reminded me a lot of its more expensive cousin, the Lancome Teint Idole foundation. So, for like, a fraction of the price, I was pretty much able to get the same level of flawlessness, which I was truly excited about. It has def become one of my favorites, I can’t seem to put it down!!
Aside from L’Oreal, I have also acquired Maybelline’s Fit Me foundation ass well. It was surprisingly runny, and I made a mess everywhere when I first used it, but it was highly recommended to me by a girl I randomly stopped and interrogated at Walmart because I just really loved her makeup. She talked it up so much, I decided I’d get it. Though it is a nice foundation, and has a nice matte finish, I wasn’t all that thrilled with it, as I felt it left sort of dry patches on my skin. I’m not sure if it’s just my skin or the way I applied it, but I wasn’t too ok with it. Maybe I’ll give it another go after I’m done fangirling over L’Oreal lol

 

 

My cat, Loki, has gotten very comfortable around the house, often taking over areas altogether. He likes to follow me and meow at me and I feel like he’s yelling at me about something I know nothing about.. Also, he loves my laptop. I think it’s a cat thing. They’re always trying to sit on them. Loki’s very much the attention whore, and he’s way too cute to be denied attention <3
While, he spends most of the day with me being babied, when David comes home, he flips out and starts running after David and trying to attack his legs LOL Since David is the one that mostly plays with him, I’m pretty certain he gets all psyched out when he walks in the door lol.
Overall, he’s spoiled as shit.

Clearly I’m becoming a crazy cat lady :O

September’s Ipsy bag!

I just got my Ipsy bag, maybe 10 minutes ago. I had started the Ipsy bag thing a few months back and I’ve gotten 2, now previous bags that I was just not into. I was going to cancel this service, but had forgotten about it until I got my email confirmation that it was being sent to me lol. I’m super glad I forgot to cancel. This bag seems pretty epic.
I got a powder by Bombshell Cosmetics, which I looked up and have read some great reviews on, and can’t wait to try on myself! I also got a realllyyyyy nice looking lipstick from Hikari, in the color “Cabernet” that I am super excited to use. Got a pencil liner that I didn’t really care for much, but hey lol. Also got a very nice smelling perfume by Harvey Prince, and lastly, a Lavender lotion by BWC(Beauty without cruelty)
All in all, I’m really excited for this month’s bag and I look forward to trying out the things I got and talking about them as I get to use these products more :)

Update!

I haven’t posted in a while. Almost a month! 
As always, been working a lot. Since I spend so many hours in front of a computer at work, naturally, getting off work and sitting in front of my computer isn’t how I want to spend my evenings.. But I do need to get in the habit of posting more.

Anywhoosies

Been using the “Sheer Envy” primer by Hard Candy for some weeks now, and I really like it. I had heard a lot of good things about it, so I went and picked it up. Makes my face super smooth :D

Also, I’ve been having a thing with Coldplay for weeks now. I downloaded the entire discography and I’ve been listening non-stop. IDK what’s wrong with me :/
That Coldplay thing has also lead to a Placebo thing and I’ve also been listening non-stop to Placebo -_-

When I have the time, I’ve also been getting into “Dianetics” finally, after YEARS of having the book sitting on my shelf! Why? Because knowledge, that’s why! The book is more of a glorified self help book than anything. Looking forward to finishing it

Also, I GOT A CAT LIKE A WEEK GO!!! His name is Loki. and he’s awesome :D

My birthday is coming up in a few weeks! David wants to Drive to NY, and I think that’s an aweessommeee idea! Can’t wait to be back in NY, even it’s just for a few days! Def looking forward to a roadtrip! :D

Been curious as to what else to try as far as makeup. I have so much foundation right now, I don’t think I’ll be getting more for a while.. and I the ones I have, I’m pretty ok with lol
What should be my next buy? All ideas are welcomed :D

Hard Candy “Feelin Blue”

I’ve been working on learning how to do eye makeup for a few weeks now, since it is probably the one thing I really am not good at. Today I decided to play around with the Hard Candy eyeshadows that I had gotten a while ago, but never really have used, since, eyeshadow is not really something I use daily. I used the “Feelin Blue” eyeshadow set and decided to experiment with it a little bit

I chose the blue colors today because I was wearing a blue shirt today and I thought it would be cool to match my eyeshadow to my shirt. yay me. lol.
What I really like about these eyeshadows it that they are so pigmented and you don’t really need a lot of it to have some serious color going. Pricing at around $6 at walmart, they really make for the ideal thing a beginner like myself to start with when it comes to eyeshadow.
Plainly put, I love it.
I played around with it for a little bit and the end result was really nice in my opinion.
For the rest of my face I used my Revlon ColorStay foundation, which I haven’t used in a while and I was sad to find that my opinion on it may have changed. I hadn’t used this foundation in maybe 4 months, and today I opted for it. I like that it is full coverage, but upon applying it, it felt very heavy and not like the other foundations I’ve been using which have been very light and give off a natural glow to the face. This one seemed really heavy and a little difficult to put on, as it became extremely streaky while applying with my brush, so I switched to a beauty sponge to remedy the problem. I really want to think it’s because the foundation maybe needs to be replaced, but maybe it’s because, as I much as I don’t want to admit it, I have fallen in love with Covergirl’s “Ready set Gorgeous” foundation. Maybe it’s time to try something else by Revlon? Not sure.

I finally gave in and got a nude lipstick by Jordana!!! Surprisingly enough, I ended up loving it. Jordana is extremely inexpensive makeup and the lipsticks I got were around $2.99 each, so I did pick up a few, and I REALLY love the lipsticks. They are matte, and the smell very nice, and they also wear very nicely. The foundation though, was not really something I liked, but that’s another post lol

In the end I was really happy with the way the eyeshadow came out, though I know I still need some more practice, and I really liked the nude lipstick I picked out as well :)

Shortly after taking this picture, I went to make garlic bread, and for some reason the butter EXPLODED and got everywhere, ruining this perfectly awesome shirt I was wearing LOL but hey, at least I got a pic :D
