Burt's Bees Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub


I am totally into sugar scrubs lately! They smell delicious and are wonderful products for exfoliation~

Stila Lip Glazes


This is my current stash of Stila's Lip Glazes. I got all of these for free with coupon codes on Stila orders. Seven of them I actually received today and are brand new. I thought it would be a nice reference if I swatched them all collectively.

Stila Travel Palettes {Preview}

Trendsetting in Tokyo & Adventurous in Aspen

This is just a preview of upcoming posts. I got these recently and swatched them today along with most of my makeup! I also got the Fabulous in Fiji palette, but I think I'll be giving that one away so I left it unopened.

Brushes


This is how I like to dry my brushes after washing them. It only gets a little inconvenient if I need to get something from that third drawer, but that doesn't happen too often.

Lumi Smokey Eye

I really wanted to try out Sugarpill's Lumi eyeshadow and did a simple smokey eye look that I wore in my recent haul video. It only took me ten minutes too!

Lime Crime 'Under the Spell' Contest Entry

curse my uneven eyelids!

I am a big fan of Doe Deere's Lime Crime makeup line and decided to try the current recreate-a-look contest in hopes of scoring some free makeup. I don't have any of the eyeshadows or lipsticks she used so I had to use what I already own as best as I could. I should learn how to take better photos though.

I feel like I am herpa derpin' in this video. huhu.. T^T Aside from that, I'd love to hear feedback and learn about other people's lists too, so please feel free to share yours~

Glamour Gloss in Pillow Talk

I hate this lip gloss! 

Enchanted Glamourland Palette from Too Faced

the packaging & outside of the palette itself
3 instruction cards, pop-up art, blush, bronzer

I've been using this palette for a while but I didn't take pictures until today. Most of my eyeshadows are really pigmented and bold, so it's nice to have the soft colors in this palette.

Yesterday, I got my latest HauteLook package filled with NYX goodies. It's hard to resist such good sales on affordable cosmetics! I stocked up on false eyelashes and their awesome eye pencils with some cute lip glosses to giveaway later.

Purple Outfit


I love playing with purple/pink schemed eyeshadows.
 Frank took photos after we went out for the night, and my makeup really lasted! I was also pretty proud of myself when I was getting ready cause I didn't take as long as I usually do putting it all on. ;)

I typically don't like big rings, but I have been lusting after this nOir one over at Karmaloop! *-* It's 132$ but there is a 25% off coupon right now.. maybe I can get it for Christmas. (One can only hope.)

First Interview

How to Ace the Interview by Grant Snider

I've got my first real job interview tomorrow and this comic by Grant Snider made me feel a little better about it. I want to try wearing a subtle amount of makeup for it, not too bold since that wouldn't be too appropriate. Here's to hoping it goes well!
