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.

Review: Hard Candy Glossaholic in Gorgeous

30 May

Hello everyone! A review today I picked this up a while ago and have been using it for some time then realized I didn’t review it yet so here it is.

Review: Let me start off by saying that this gloss is bigger than the ones on the market. It contains 0.38 fl oz. while regular is around 0.17 fl oz. That’s double the size and it’s at a really great price too! If you can see in the swatch there are chunky glitters in the gloss itself that depending on the light can be a green or red flecks. It is a pretty standard pink color with the glitters that add some extra oomph to the gloss. Wear time is the same for any gloss around 2-3 hours with/without eating and drinking. I like that it’s not extremely sticky but still stays on the lips for quite some time. There is a vanilla cake batter scent but that goes away after some time. This gloss looks great on it’s own or on top of a lipstick. For the cons since this gloss is bigger than other glosses on the market the applicator can sometimes get stuck in the small hole but can be easily fixed by applying force. Overall a great gloss for a good price.

Cost: $4.79CDN @ Walmart

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product  for those who love glitter in their glosses or for those looking for a basic color with some pop but I won’t be purchasing anymore as chunks of glitter isn’t my cup of tea.

Tootsie Tippers

20 May

I have never done a post of shoes before so I recently got new shoes and a question popped up.

Would you wear uncomfortable shoes if they were cute?

I am a very picky shopper when it comes to clothes and shoes… sorry if it is a bad thing. >.< But I picked up two pairs of shoes from Walmart (hooray for cheap but cute shoes) and they are both very cute.

 Left 2 shoes = old shoes, Right 2 shoes are the new ones. (there are newspapers in the farthest right to stretch them)

Bad thing is despite the shoes being my size (feet length wise) it is not wide enough. Here are my feet:

Don’t they remind you of duck feet? It may look slim… but it’s not photography can be quite deceiving. Hopefully I will do another post of feet types and shapes… but putting that aside because my feet resembles a duck’s feet I always have difficulty finding shoes that are comfortable. My parents won’t let me venture in the realm of heels so heels are always out of question when it comes to shoe shopping (but I will get myself a pair of heels soon hopefully >.< fingers crossed!).

With any kind of shoes I am always trying to squash my feet into a pair of nice shoes and it hurts like heck!! So from trial and error I have come up with ways of coping with the pain.

1. Decide if the pain is worth it for the pair of shoes – I always choose shoes that I can break in easily… patent leather isn’t my thing for that reason or it can be worn right away like flats (I don’t own any flats by the way…)

2. Break in the shoes – This for me takes about 10 days of wear… of course not consecutively as I wouldn’t want blisters popping and more blisters forming for the 10 days I switch on and off.

3. For the rubbing shoe burning feeling – I put on crushed aspirin on the blister or rubbed spot and it would calm down.

4. For stretching the shoe – To make that break in faster for the shoes I put on the thickest pair of socks that I own and mash my foot into the shoe (uncomfortable I know) and it will stretch the shoe out more quickly and reduce the amount of days trying to break in the shoe.

Well, those are my tips… I will most likely post up more things about feet since they play such an important role in our daily lives and function.

Review: Ecotools Makeup Brushes

25 Feb

A review on Ecotools Makeup Brushes. So here are the brushes that I have from Ecotools and I have been using them since I got them in July… so it’s been about 8 months. Photo of them.

 I have the 6 piece set and the powder brush. The 6 piece set includes a blush brush, concealer brush, slanted eyeliner/brow brush, all over shadow brush, brow/eyelash comb brush and the brush roll made of hemp. These brushes can be purchased at Superstore, Walmart, and London drugs. I believe that they are cheaper at London drugs than at Superstore or Walmart but you can look at those places and decide on which ever place you want to buy them from.

Review: When I first bought these brushes I thought that they would be scratchy and stuff but the bristles were really really soft for each and everyone of the brushes. Even the brush roll amazed me at how soft it was despite the fact that it was hemp. Each of the brushes are extremely soft and they feel really nice on the skin.

Now onto each brushes purpose, the powder brush is for your translucent powder but I find that it is quite fluffy compared to other brushes and due to its fluffiness it doesn’t pick up and distribute powder evenly over my face. I still use it as I really like the feeling of it compared to other brushes that I have tried and returned.

The blush brush is pretty dense and really does distribute blush evenly and is soft to boot! Picking up color on this brush is easy as one swipe across your product. A great powder blush brush.

The concealer brush is a wide multicolored brush and since I wear concealer most of the time I usually use this brush so it might seem like its worn out. It is a perfect width across as I can swipe this brush anywhere on my face and still be able to blend in my concealer really well. I really liked this brush as it worked for lots of different areas on my face.

The angled brush which can be used for eyeliner or brows. I use this brush to line my eyes and to me it is the least softest of the brushes. It was quite harsh and really hurt my eyes while I was lining my eyes. But it works nicely as a brow powder brush.

The all over shadow brush picks up a lot of product and is dense but where it lacks is that it doesn’t distribute the product evenly over my lids. Overall a nice and soft brush though.

The brow/eyelash comb brush is average as is any other brow/eyelash comb on the market.

Cost: Powder Brush – $8.49CDN, 6-piece set – $17.99CDN

Would I recommend these products? I would totally recommend these brushes to others who are starting off with makeup or want to be eco-friendly to the environment. They are so soft, great brushes, and are relatively cheaper than most other drugstore brushes (other drugstore brush brands include Annabelle, Joe Fresh, Quo, etc.).
