Beauty Stash: Eyes – Eyebrows, Mascara and False Eyelashes

6 Sep

Hello everyone! An all together post today to feature what is stated above. TO be honest these are things that I don’t use too much on a daily basis and when I do it’s one at a time… I should really decrease the amount of products that I have for each section.

Mascara: (Please note that all of these are new mascaras so they are still “fresh”, all the shades are in black and I crossed out the ones that I have finished)

– Benefit They’re real! sample, Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes, Maybelline MegaPlush, Tarte Lights,Camera, Lashes sample, Fairy Drops Las Vegas Edition, Fairy Drops Mascara Base, Maybelline The Falsies Flared, Revlon Lash Potion, Covergirl Lashblast Fusion, Lashblast Covergirl Lashblast Luxe, Maybelline The Rocket

Total: 9 products

False Eyelashes

From various shops: Mainly Daiso lashes, All of the Ardell + Cirque du Soleil’s lashes, Paperself Paperlashes 2 pairs, Duo Lash adhesive

Total = … can’t really put a total on the number of lashes that I have.

Eyebrows:

Integrate Eyebrow Powder and Etude House Drawing Eyebrows Retractable pencil in Grey Brown

Total = 2 products

So I can see where my prorities are when it comes to these products. I don’t use false eyelashes too much because they require more time in the morning than anything so I leave them for special occasions. But I would like to reduce the amount of unopened mascaras that I have right now. 9 products is a lot when I only use one at a time. I wonder if I can actually do a mascara buying ban… but they release newer cooler ones every few months!

Ah well, I do want to decrease my brow products to one because I only need one brow product and I like powder better because it does last longer than pencil. I have to repurchase my pencil every 4 months compared to 9 months for powder brow products. I do want to try a cooler tone eyebrow powder but I will only purchase it when I run out of the brow products.

This is a good way for me to see what I have and what I would like to decrease so in my case reduce mascara and attempt to find a new brow product after completing my current stash.

Finished Products #2

7 Jun

Hello everyone! A finished products post as tomorrow you shall be bombarded by something more sinister… just wait till tomorrow to find out. Anyways, I only finished 17 products so nothing to brag about but after a collection picture this it feels like an accomplishment.

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:

Long waited haul

8 Jun

So I admit I haven’t been shopping for a while but I went today just because I had to pick up some stamps and envelopes for work. These are the things I picked up:

So the items from Clinique is the Brow Shaper in Shaping Taupe, Maybelline the Colossal and Falsies Mascara, and from the Body Shop two spring limited edition cheek blusher stamps in Rose and Coral (on sale!) and a sheer lip skine in Sheer Guava. I really like the blushes and since they were on sale AND limited edition I’m going to pick up two more either tomorrow or Thursday. It’s a neat concept and I would love to have backups of it (and I generally don’t have backups of products unless I really really like it).

Hope you enjoyed this post! More coming soon!

Nightime Foxy look

28 Feb

It’s been a while since I’ve posted up a beauty makeup thing. So this is a neutral brown nighttime look… I should do a daytime look sometime soon. ^_^ Anyways, so here is the look:

 I look so white… O.O

So the products that I used are as following:

Face:

Maybelline Pure Makeup in Classic Ivory

Covergirl Fresh Complexion Concealer in no idea what shade

Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Loose Powder

Eyes:

Maybelline Quad in Chai Latte (all colors were used)

NYX Slim Eyeliner in Black

Joe Fresh Eyeshadow in Black (to set the eyeliner which has a tendency to smudge)

Covergirl Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara in very Black (as if I can get black enough)

Cheeks:

Joe Fresh Blush in Pink

N.Y.C. Bronzer in Sunny (discontinued by the way)

Lips:

Shiseido Perfect Rouge in Tender Sheer (sample size)

Hmmm… in the picture you can’t really tell that I have on bronzer and blush…. maybe I gotta pick up more product but I guess it was due to flash that the colors got washed out. That’s what happens when you go on a nightime look that isn’t really nightime…

Anyways, I am quite pleased with myself… I have gotten a lot better at putting on makeup and such so because of that I pat myself on the back. Hopefully I can get more colors and such so that I can try out different looks. The only colors that I actually have are white, black, browns, blues and one green color. Never done a smokey look…

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.

Project R

8 Feb

A new project loosely based on Project 10 pan by lollipop25? I believe it was her anyways  it is a products reduction for me. Project R… and here are the products that I plan to finish:

 These ones are self-explanatory… I personally don’t reach for these colors a lot but I would love to repurchase a full size of cranberry which is pretty good. ^_^ Blackberry is too dark for an everyday look and everyone raves about Kitten but I don’t like the strong vanilla scent that comes with this lipgloss. As you can tell I’m almost done blackberry which is positive and I have used up a lot of Kitten which is also positive. I am on the way to finishing these ones though I wouldn’t mind keeping cranberry for special occasions… sadly the lifespan of these lipglosses is only a year after opening the packaging. Ah well must finish quickly and the best as I can they were expensive. >.< $38CDN for a set of 8.

 Here are the product names

1. Covergirl Wetslicks Lipgloss in Clear Radiance –  Just regular clear lipgloss… this was bought with a coupon same goes for the Amazemint one too… I use this for tutorials and stuff.

2. Covergirl Amazemint Wetslicks Lipgloss in Slaphappy – Bought with the clear lipgloss it’s pretty good but I don’t wear gloss that often everyday therefore I must try to finish it up as best as I can. I would not repurchase this one… not as good as I expected.

3. Covergirl Fresh Complexion Concealer in Light-medium(?) – I don’t remember the shade because it fell off for some odd reason but this one is a pretty good concealer just not my shade. It’s a little too pink I believe for my skin tone but I still use it to correct my blemishs. I think I’m 3/4 done it.

4. Wet ‘n’ Wild Megalash Mascara – A really clumping mascara I would not repurchase but it does the job of keeping my lashes curled.

5. Covergirl Wetslicks Fruits Spritzers in Guava (yum)  – This was a yummy flavor but I don’t find myself reaching for it very often… but still pretty yummy.

6. Nivea Lip Care Caregloss and Shine – Bought about 3-4 years ago and I know I should throw it out but I really liked this gloss back then. I like it because it actually moisterizes the lips and gives it a gloss sheen as well. Not bad for a lip balm but for me I don’t like the stickiness of it.

7. N.Y.C. Lipstick in Petal – Bought for everyday but a little too sheer and light on me. But I still use it for practicing and designing looks.

8. N.Y.C. Lipstick in Blossom – Bought specifically for a tutorial coming up soon. I still haven’t mastered the techniques for this look yet but it will come out soon!

10. Rocky Mountain Soap Company Green Apple Lip Butter – just finished this product yesterday I had this one for over 2 years and the smell was gone but the moisterizingness of it was still in it. I use it every night as a nightly moisterizer good stuff! I’ve already repurchased a replacement.

And as you can tell I can’t count properly…. yeah… positive… but anyways these are the things that I would like to finish. Anyways, these are the products that I have included… I forgot to take a photo of the face products that I would like to use up but that can wait until another beauty related update. After I finish the products I know that I probably won’t be buying anymore glosses and just focus on stuff that I would wear everyday. Well, we’ll see how the project goes on and I hope to get everything done to the best of my abilities!
