Imma be honest

5 Sep

Hello everyone! So being honest I have been uninspired to blog lately. As you can tell from the 3 week disappearance of myself. And yes, I miss blogging but 3 weeks ago it felt like I had an obligation to blog but now I just want to get back into it. New fall collections to think about and Holiday items are being released as well. But just an update that I am putting up posts again. I think my summer vacation is over now. ^-^ School begins on Tues Sept 6! Eeeeek!!

So I’ll just leave a photo of me about to taste the rainbow.

Preview: Quo Summer Collection 2011

23 May

Hello everyone! Just a preview today for Quo’s upcoming summer collection hitting stores in June.

So the collection consists of 2 lipglosses named Miracle gloss which are glitter filled and is workable on top of a lip color or lip gloss this is $10CDN , 3 summer palettes which include 4 eyeshadows, a blush and a bronzer (in super cute packaging) and retail for $20CDN, and a shimmer powder which adds a nice glow to your face and body and it retails for $20CDN.

And yes I did purchase a palette it was too adorable!! Review coming soon!

Hoarders much?

25 Mar

Hello everyone! So I was just watching a makeup collection video on Youtube… which is quite common on Youtube and a thought came to me. Why do these young teenage girls have so much makeup? Don’t they throw out makeup that’s out of expiry? For example Juicystar07 has a huge makeup collection but when she took out her mascara drawer I was like WHOA!! Expired mascara!!

I mean I think I have a lot of makeup but at least I know when to throw out products and such. It makes it seem like these young girls are hoarding these products and they keep buying more (haul videos). An arguement that I’ve heard is that they are makeup collectors. *insert laughter* Usually when people collect things they are increasing in value but with makeup it decreases value so why ‘collect’ something which could ruin your skin later on? I also think that Youtube enables these girls to go out and buy products so that they could make videos and such.

Anyways, I just hope that these girls will release how silly they are a little ways down the road (and realize how much money they spent!)

For those who are curious here’s the video:

Coming Soon…

26 Jun

So these products are coming soon and I am planning to purchase these products. Sorry for all these beauty posts a regular blog post will be up soon!

Fall makeup collections are slowly making their way into the industry and out of the ones that have been released these two companies fall collections are the one that I am most looking forward too!

First up the Body Shop:

The fall collection is called ”Smoke & Fire” and the one product that I look forward to is:

The Body Shop Fall Collection 2010 1 The Body Shop Fall Collection 2010: The Body Shop Smoke & Fire Autumn Makeup Collection

The Autumn Leaves Compact (retail $21 USD) which comes in Chestnut and Berry (above). It is a beautiful compact and definately just for a collector’s sake. ^_^ Me personally I love pretty packaging but for something that looks this cool I will definately purchase! This collection is hitting the Body Shop stores July 6.

MAC + Disney Collab

23 Jun

It’s official MAC Cosmetics is collabing with Disney for the Venomous Villains.

I don’t know if I should save up for this collection or not… as much as I like Disney I’m not a huge fan of the villains. If I were to pick up some items from this collection it would probably be Innocence, Beware! Lipstick from Cruella De Vil and Strange Potion Lipglass from the Evil Queen.

Deals of the Week

22 Feb

Here are some of the deals of the week and these are the items that I picked up. I probably won’t have many of these posts as it does seem to be a bragging post that and the only things that I buy all the time is food. ^_^ So for those who live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada these deals are going to be held until this Friday which is Feb 26 and they are pretty good deals.

First up, I gotta mention the stores that I went to. The first place was Lemon Tree to get myself something you’ll see it later… then it was Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, and then Superstore.

The items:

The brushes are from Quo which is Shoppers Drug Mart makeup brushes… they even have their own line of makeup too! But anyways, those brushes were 40% off. So in total they were… let’s see… about $33CDN. If I bought it full priced it would have been $46CDN. Yeah… saved a lot of money.

From Rexall which is a chain of drugstores owned by Darrel Katz, also known as pharmaprix in some other Canadian places but what I actually got from there is the pressed powder which is N.Y.C. Translucent powder and the Maybelline Quad in Chai Latte. They were both 20% off and the total came to under $10. It wasn’t that much so compared to Shoppers I only saved about $3.

The last place that I went to is Superstore and they had a deal on Covergirl mascaras… not all of their mascaras but the professional and the exact collection. That and some crackers… hooray triscuits! They were 2 for $9.00 so I saved a lot there. Yippee! I’m excited to try them out. Both are in Blackest Black as my eyelashes are really… well being asian black.

So the special item that I got was this:

 This doll is a Momiji Doll. A pretty doll. Just for me. Her name is Rainbow she likes shopping, fashion, and long division. Just like me! There is only one place in Edmonton that sells these doll, I would very much like to get some more. Of course, ones that speak my personality. ^_^

Well, that will be it for today…. sorry for double posting.

Wanted!

10 Feb

Something new that I want to get… MAC’s new Viva Glam models Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga. Here’s the promotional photo.

I would love to get Lady Gaga’s lipcolor which is a blue-pink tone.

Best part about MAC’s Viva Glam collection is that they donate all the money made from these lipsticks to an HIV/AIDs program. Great huh? The two lippies will hit shelves Mar 18, 2010 and I am so getting mine even though I really don’t like Lady Gaga I will get the shade and help out a cause. Yay!

Other then that positive part of the day I’ve been trying to track down a MAC Hello Kitty Lip Conditioner in Popster which kinda looks like this…

 

Thanks to http://fav3.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/maclipcond.jpg for the photo.

If anyone knows where to find them still in Edmonton, AB, Canada that would be great… I don’t like online shopping therefore no ebay or any other online shop site. *sigh*

Today was a pretty good day overall… until the exam of course… studying like crazy!
