Hello everyone! I’ve been shopping quite a bit lately due to the holiday season and now that I’m officially done school (for now) I want to show you guys what has accumulated lately.

So from MAC’s Glitter and Ice collection I picked up Snow Season mineralized eyeshadow and Snowglobe beauty powder.

At Walmart I needed more foot cream so I picked up the usual Freeman’s Bare Foot Cream, and some other items that came home with me was a Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake, Wet ‘n Wild nail polish in Jezebel and Sagreena the Teenage Witch, and a few more Maybelline Color Tattoos in Too Cool (white), Bold Gold, Bad to the Bronze, and Pomegrante Punk (swatches will come tomorrow hopefully).

Various places  are from online stores and Sephora. The Naked palette came from Sephora and the others came from beautycarousel.com which includes Steam Cream, Naruko serums and extra Hello Kitty face masks.

From ELF or eyeslipsface.com this was ordered while they were having their Cyber Monday sale so everything was 50% off. I picked up some brushes, lipgloss sets to give away as presents and two blushes (Merry Berry, and Blushing Rose) and a translucent powder.

Makeup as a gift?

10 Aug

Hi everyone! So I get asked a lot by my friends about getting other people makeup as a birthday present or Christmas or whenever you give presents. And I am kind of on the fence for this question. I’m going to present some thoughts that go through my brain if I was going to give makeup to my friends as presents.

1. Do NOT give makeup to friends

Reasons

– You don’t know their color likes and dislikes or you could totally pick a wrong color for their skintone.

– If your friend is a makeup collector (like me) they could possibly have the same color or product in their collection.

2. Give makeup to your friends

Reasons

– Get a makeup bag and fill it up with some goodies and if they don’t like something they always have something else.

– Give them new products to try out such as an outrageous eyeshadow color or a new lip color without them having to commit to a full-sized product.

For me I only give makeup for those starting out with makeup so for those going into highschool or prom. That is where I do the works and go shopping with them to test out shades of color and such. For those who are already into makeup I give them hard to find items (or items they wouldn’t think about getting themselves) or products that are a staple in makeup collection.

Foundation, face powder, and concealer are extremely hard to match to a person so I would stay away from them. Everything else is fair game!
