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: Revlon PhotoReady Eyeshadow Quad in 530 Bohemian

14 Jan

Hello everyone! I am going through a backlog of posts so don’t mind the fuzzy floors. ^_^

IMG_1738 IMG_1739 IMG_1740 IMG_2181

Description: A trio of eyeshadows with a primer and glittery top coat. From top to bottom a light coral orange shimmer with gold shimmer, medium chocolate brown with shimmer, light baby blue shimmer.

Review: I love baby blue shades even though people say you shouldn’t wear it but it’s my favorite color! I think it works great for Spring/Summer looks and paired with a neutral outer v/crease shade it is a great color to wear. I really like the pigmentation and all the shades are shimmery the brown less so but they work very well together. The eyeshadows are all smooth and blend easily though it is very easy to blend the colors into non-existance. The primer is actually a really creamy powder and is a gold skin tone shade it works okay as a primer but I still apply another primer underneath. The glittering gold is a top coat that you can put on your eyes for a bright and fun look it is pretty smooth and applies quite easily. Overall, this is a great palette with fun shades.

Cost: $12-15 CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? This is a gorgeous palette for Spring and Summer I mean look at that blue it’s so pretty! This is a great fun palette to have to just brighten up your day.

Favourite Fall Lipsticks

12 Sep

Hello everyone! A fun post for today since the weather is slowly getting colder and colder I have been pulling out all my darker lipsticks. I still love my brights so I will be showcasing what lipsticks I will be rocking for the Fall. Of course I couldn’t choose just 10 I had to pick 12.

IMG_2127 IMG_2130 IMG_2136

First row: Revlon Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Socialite, ELF Mineral Lipstick in Rich Raspberry, MAC Plumful, Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie, Maybelline Color Whisper in Who wore it Red-er, MAC Rebel, MAC Apres Chic (limited edition)

Second Row: Clinique Chubby Stick in Voluptuous Violet, Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Blissful Berry, Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Embrace, Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet, Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Hot Plum

Now that I see all the lipsticks lined up Maybelline’s Hot Plum looks really out of order lol.

So most of the shades actually look like MLBB (my lips but better) shades but I like to save my redder lipsticks for the holiday seasons but some of the berry lipsticks are one of my favourites to sport. All of these lipsticks are fantastic so definitely check them out!

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)

IMG_2006

– 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

IMG_1971 IMG_1974

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:

IMG_2016

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.
