(5) Double Sparkle Eyeshadows from Inglot


Inglot's Double Sparkle or D.S. eyeshadows each have sparkle to them and apply smoothly with very little to no fallout.

Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blush in X-Rated


The beauty community has raved about Rock & Republic blushes so much that they were extremely hard to obtain even when in stock. HauteLook had them on sale a few times, but X-Rated was the only one I was able to get back in January. It's unfortunate that these blushes are sold out and really hard to find now, unless you scour eBay.

Yes to Blueberries Intensive Skin Repair Serum


I typically find that products which promote 'all natural' ingredients do not perform as well as those that don't. Considering the three products I've tried from the Yes to Carrots brand, they are the exception to that observation.

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in Lemon & Chamomile


I am totally part of the hype with this lip balm. I don't wear lip gloss or lipstick very often, so most of the time, I tend to wear Vaseline on my lips to keep them hydrated.

Lime Crime Giveaway!


I'm super excited to present to you with our second giveaway! This is so incredibly late, but I won a little review contest on Lime Crime's facebook back January and received the Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper and two magic dusts of my choice. After waiting for about a month, I still hadn't received my goodies and emailed Erica at Lime Crime's PR and she was really wonderful about it. The original tracking number said that it had been delivered, so we thought it was lost or stolen. Coincidentally, I did receive the package a day after I had emailed Erica, but she had sent me another package anyway! <3

Day Four of Asian Pose Meme

Day Four: Adjusting Glasses

This one is kind of embarrassing. It also doesn't help that the unevenness of my eyelids is rather apparent. (◑﹏◐)

JUARA Sweet Black Tea Eye Creme


I bought this eye cream last November and finally got around to reviewing it. JUARA lists this product at 37$ and I got it for about half the price through HauteLook.

(3) AMC Eyeshadows from Inglot

3, 5, and 10 pan palettes in their box packaging

I actually placed my first order back at the beginning of March and it got caught in a 'glitch' in Inglot's system where my order was completely overlooked at fulfillment. I waited way too long before I called them (after tweeting and trying to use their contact form online to no avail) and the nice lady I spoke to refunded the shipping (11$) and overnighted my order to me! So for future reference, calling Ingot is the fastest way to get service. This post will show you the AMC eyeshadows I received with a 3 pan Freedom System palette.

Mascara Shield


I hated smearing my mascara on my eye makeup all the time, so I decided to try out a mascara shield! I know you can make homemade ones, but this was only a 1$ with free shipping on ebay.

Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes vs Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes


Josie Maran's line of cosmetics is natural and her makeup remover wipes go towards a helpful earth-friendly cause. Up until now, I've been using Neutrogena ones as my go-to wipes and decided to compare the two brands.

Sephora recently had a promotion for free samples of Benefit's new skincare line. Since these were just sample sizes, this won't be a full review from a month's testing, just some info on what I think about them.

This is my entry for the UNII palette giveaway Beautylish is having! I've never actually depotted anything before and did not have much interest in it until I realized how many small palettes I have.

Let me know if you enter too, I'd love to see your makeup stashes!

Shot of the Day

Sephora iPhone case

I've had this case for a couple months now and I like it. I'm such a sucker for free stuff, and all you have to do is show a Sephora employee that you downloaded the official app or enter promo code MOBILE if you make a purchase online. It's smooth, fits snugly around my phone but is difficult to remove and scratches easily, but hey, it was free.
