MUFE Aqua Liners in Iridescent Fuchsia (9) and Diamond Burgundy (11)

I didn't buy these at the same time, but I've had #9 since May of last year, so it's been more than about a month since it supposedly expired. Yet the product doesn't seem very different (both in smell and application) from when I initially purchased it, so it'll stay around for now. I don't think I've used it very many times to begin with anyway. Aqua Liners retail for 23$ each at Sephora, and the two colors I own are Iridescent Fuchsia and Diamond Burgundy.

Shot of the Day {New Header}

star pea

Two weekends ago, my brother and I attempted to take our first water droplet macros and this was a favorite from the ones I captured. It is a lot more difficult than I thought it'd be! Great learning experience though, and it was fun. The stars on the water droplet are craft glitters whereas the others are actual cosmetic glitters by OCC and LA Splash. I hope you like the new header! I feel like it doesn't really match the rest of my blog, but I don't care, I'm proud of it. (Plus, I'm terrible with coding and don't want to fudge around with my layout.) Anyways, if you like the photo, you can click-through to the Flickr page and download it as a wallpaper. For personal use only, please!

Shot of the Day featuring Guerlain


I've really been loving this Guerlain lipstick! Ria helped me buy it with a eGift to Sephora a while back. ヘ(´ω`ヘ)

OCC Mirrorball

Mirrorball is a gorgeous multicolored cosmetic glitter from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Officially, it is described as a "disco-era silver with rainbow reflections," but photos do not do it justice. The glitter is absolutely stunning in real life.

I missed out on the Iris Apfel lipsticks I wanted, but at least I've got these pretties~!

Black Knight was a holiday release from butter LONDON that looks absolutely gorgeous in the bottle. It is a black based polish packed with blue, magenta, and silver glitters.

Too Faced BBOM for January 2012

I'm really excited to share that I made the Level 2 status for Too Faced's Beauty Blogger of the Month for January! There will be a giveaway for a 50$ eGift Certificate to their website posted later this week, so start up a wishlist! Thanks goes out to everyone who takes time to visit my modest makeup blog and helped make this happen. Next time, I want to be able to score Level 1 status and hold a better giveaway for you all. I think 50$ is plenty though, plus you'll get free shipping! Hopefully whoever wins will share their Too Faced haul with me. Stay tuned!

Newark with Christine & Anna

I don't write too much about my personal life on here, let alone post photos about it. But yesterday, I got to meet and spend time with two of my favorite online friends, Christine and Anna. It was somewhat last minute, as Christine and I already planned to meet for the first time Monday, but we decided to meet up with Anna in Delaware as well.

I drove to Christine's house and her room is crazy-filled with clothes! To be honest, I could probably go shopping in her room for a different outfit everyday for like six months straight. Christine is an ultimate girly girl. I need to work on being more like her when I go out, she enjoys dressing up and looking pretty. (I don't do it enough according to Frank.)

I curled Christine's hair and did most of her makeup which you can find pictures of on her Instagram account. And got a huge ego boost when she liked it after I was done!! Also, I'm sorry there are just has selcas of myself in this post.. They were taken late, after I returned home at night, and I was really tired. Plus, I didn't get any photos of Christine or Anna yesterday. (◕︵◕)
