How could I have forgotten

HOW AMAZING THIS REVLON COLORSTAY FOUNDATION WAS!

I’ve been ignoring it for weeks! but I knew today would be a loooonnnggggg day so I decided to reacquaint myself with this amazing foundation. Not only did it provide great coverage absolutely all day and all evening, it also stayed matte, which is something I really enjoy and unfortunately don’t get with many other foundations without having to touch up every few hours.

I think I’m rediscovering my love for this foundation and I’m so glad about it :)

So this thanksgiving I was definitely very thankful for Revlon.

Also Black Friday shoppers are evil

That is all

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!

Little victories

Everyone that knows me know I have many talents.. Cooking is not one of them. I’ll make the simplest thing a total wreck in less than a second. When it comes to the kitchen, I am not fluent.
All of my childhood and adolescence, I never had to cook! I had my mother, who is awesome in the kitchen and never made me learn because I just didn’t want to. When I grew up and moved out, I was lucky enough to move in with people who not only accepted the fact that I was culinary deficient, but happily fed me and sometimes even tried to teach me new things.
Living with David, I’ve realized I’m gonna starve if I don’t learn something. Not only does David not know how to cook, but honestly, unless it’s attached to his PS4, there’s just no interest. So I’ve been learning. and failing.
BUT TODAYY!!!!!

I spent 4 hours making a lasagna

WHAT!?

HOW MANY HOURS?

4 hours. 1-2-3-4 <– hours.

WHY?

Because, damnit! I’m tired of not knowing how to cook! and it’s funny because all I ever watch is cooking shows! But I just don’t know how to cook!!!
At first, I was sure I was going to try to do something a la Gordon Ramsay, since I fckn love him right now. But then I found his cooking complicated and decided to go with a youtube tutorial by a guy named Chef John and he has a food channel called Food Wishes, and it is seriously awesome. He is hilarious and his food is simple and it always looks good.
So I decided on this recipe.
I followed TO THE TEE! I did everything the dude said! and at the end of the day, I had an amazing lasagna sitting on my counter, just waiting to ravished by me!

I was happy as hell, man!
This is the fist lasagna I’ve ever done, and possibly the fist thing I’ve ever been so hyped about because it wasn’t “eh” like most times. it’s fuckin awesome.

So as I continue this culinary journey of mostly fails, I can at least have one win. and it was a very tasty win :D

and how did it look?

well, i’m glad you asked ^_^

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 :)
