Empties: March 2014

2 Apr

Hello everyone! Long time no blog but school has been pretty hectic and I’m in the midst of creating a game right now so just a quick post today. I probably won’t be able to blog for the next little while due to school (finals are just around the corner!!) though once school’s all done at the end of April I will have more time to work on my blog. Anyways, onto the empties post there are a lot of products that I finished this month it really surprised me!

Review: ELF Essential Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick

6 Feb

Hello everyone! Man, I feel like I am on a roll with reviews lately… either that or it’s just me. Anyways, let’s get on with this review.

IMG_2385 IMG_2387 IMG_2389

Description: Shades – Little Miss Thing: light shimmery champagne, Rock Out: metallic silver taupe, Forest Nymph: dark brown with green shimmer, Turkish Coffee: chocolate bronze shimmer

Review: I have been really liking cream eye shadow pencils lately they are easy to use and I don’t have to worry about contaminating a whole pot of eye shadow. These are very pretty as you can tell from the swatch very pretty and I like using them as bases and as eye shadows themselves. As a base they last 6-8 hours with a little bit of fading and by themselves they last 4-6 hours with creasing. I find that a thin layer works best and any thicker it will crease even faster. They are pigmented so one swipe is all it takes for a beautiful eye shadow look.  Overall, great products and I would highly recommend them.

Cost: $2USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? They are a lovely addition to my collection and are a great price point as well definitely recommending them!

Project Update: Month 5 + 6 + 7

8 Jan

Hello everyone! Update from October and I have to say I am slightly disappointed with myself. Here are the goodies that I picked up the past three months (and note that some of them are Christmas presents):

IMG_2366 IMG_2369 IMG_2371 IMG_2373 IMG_2375

For October I picked up a few things and then went really crazy for makeup in November due to the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales and got a lots of gifts sets in December. I also made two indie cosmetics orders (Sugarpill + Geek Chic Cosmetics) from Black Friday shopping (hooray for great deals!).

So first off I have to say that I have a soft spot for special/unique packaging. That was one of the main reasons why I picked up the Shu Uemura X Takashi Murakami collaboration palettes. The Canadian prices of these palettes are really inflated ($90CAD) and the colors are dupable but that packaging is to die for. So that makes these two palettes my most expensive makeup items that I own. >.< One of the palettes broke in transit but I got it replaced which was really nice of Shu to do now they are both in pristine condition ready to be used.

The other things of course is the Vice 2 palette from Urban Decay with it’s gorgeous jewel-tone shades how could I resist? And I have had my eyes on getting more OCC Lip tars to add to my collection and since these are only available online I picked two that are just perfect for the fall/winter times. I used them a couple of times and they are GORGEOUS! If you haven’t tried these lip products go and try them they are amazing! Shades purchased are Strumpet and Black Dahlia.

From MAC I purchased a duo compact and an eyeshadow for a brow duo and I also got the Violet lip bag which contained a lipliner (Vino), lipstick (Dark Deed) and lipgloss (Art of Seduction).
So from the online orders what I ordered from Sugarpill Cosmetics is Bulletproof eyeshadow (who can’t get enough black eyeshadows?), Tipsy and Weekender loose eyeshadow (the only pigments I’m missing for a complete Sugarpill collection), and of course the Cold Chemistry palette (this is a must have of course haven’t you seen the palette gorgeous!). From Sephora’s VIB Sale I picked up the Too Faced All I want for Christmas set and in the photos am missing the eyeliner, mascara and eyeshadow primer.

From Geek Chic Cosmetics I ordered a few things it’s been a while since I ordered from them but they had released a new collection and I wanted to try some lippies this time around. So I ordered the whole 8-piece Fellowship collection (LOTR related of course I couldn’t say no); Doll Cheeks Blush (Nerdgasm is one of my favorites); lipsticks in My little Pwny, Crysalis, Lipstick of the Shifting Sands, and Once Bitten; Geek Gloss in Health Potion, Benevolent, and Banished. I won’t wear Banished that much but when I review these item it will be epic.
Holiday Gifts from ELF (they all came in sets and stuff) and purchased for myself is a few new things from the drugstores (L’Oreal and Rimmel).

Face masks = haven’t used them very much in the past 3 months… You’d think with exams and studying that I would just put on a mask and continue to study but I haven’t actually used any sheet masks this month. I just used a clay one this month because my skin has been acting up. I will be trying to use up my stash much more this year.

So after this posts up comes my resolutions for next year and I’ll let you know then what my plans are for purchasing new makeup and stuff like that. And can I say HOLY WALL OF TEXT!!
