Two New Videos!





In case you missed either of them, here are my two latest YouTube videos! One of them is all about how to use the water decals from the Born Pretty Store (I've done multiple blog posts on them before but figured a video would be a nice addition) while the other is an installment of my OOTW series. If you end up watching either of them, I hope you enjoy; have a wonderful weekend everyone :)

Sephora Favorites "Meet Your Match": Swatches + Review!



I don't think you guys understand how behind I am on blog posts… okay that's a total load of bull to make myself feel better. Y'all are probably beyond aware of how behind I am considering I just about never write legitimate posts these days. Photos are still taken of my nails and various makeup products I'm testing out, but getting around to editing those photos and reviewing the products? Hahahhahaha. Especially when, now that I'm finally doing a 'proper' review of some goodies, it's going to be far from proper at all; I've tried out most of these things but have yet to put some of them to the test of real-world-wear.

Le sigh/I digress/please forgive me.

Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lipstick: First Impression + Review!



It's definitely been up for quite awhile now but I figuredjuuuuuuuust in case you missed itI would let the blogger world know that I reviewed the Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lipsticks over on my YouTube channel! I had been dying to try out this line of lipsticks since they first came out (years ago?) but waited until recently to nab some when they were on super sale; a $22 lipstick on sale for $8 is something I absolutely cannot pass up (can you blame me???). 
If you want to find out what I think of them then just watch the video linked above!! I'll eventually do a proper blog post with swatches of the other colors but, since you can be sure it'll be at least a little while until that happens (I'm sorry, feel free to blame grad school [you know I do]), know that Google is a wonderful thing and there are TONS of swatches of them out there already (˃̴◡ुؔ՞ઁ)♡⃛

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend~

Three Looks With The NAKED3 Palette!



It's been up for a few days now but I figured, in case you missed it, I would let all of you lovelies in the blogger world know that I posted a video (FREAKING FINALLY) showing how to create three looks with the NAKED3 palette! I had mentioned doing this exact video when I hauled the darn thing last Christmas but 
alasI'm a flake and find filming tutorials difficult so I put it off until now hahaha (at least I'm honest). 

So, without further ado: here's the promised tutorial! I hope you enjoy the looks I put together; the first two I wear extremely often and truly do think that this is a great palette overall. The predominantly pink shades make the NAKED3 quite special amongst the plethora of other nude palettes on the market and this green eyed girl appreciates it!!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Extravagant Mascara: Swatches + Review!


I figure it's about time for me to review this little sample of MUFE's Smoky Extravagant Mascara (it's the one that came in my/the birthday kit Sephora is giving out this year) since a.) I first reviewedand never followed up onit a month ago in a "Best & Worst of Beauty" (B&WOB) video and, b.) my little tube is just about finished. May as well write about my makeup feels while they're fresh, even if the makeup is anything but at this point, amiright?



I stand by my initial statement in that B&WOB video that, upon first sight, this mascara wand is like seeing a horse with an erection. WOW. There's really just no other way to describe it; it's long, thick, and tapers to a point… see what I'm saying? The comparison is about as horrendous as it is perfect. 
Until you see the ridiculous thing next to an eyeball though I feel like you may not quite understand:


Whabam! Immense. And quite frightening; even after using the MUFE Smoky Extravagant Mascara for as long as I have I still get a little twitchy when I bring the wand up near my eyes. Granted I get over the fear real quick because I know how magnificent this mascara makes my lashes look. It lengthens, thickens, and just overall intensifies the look of your lashes without (for the most part) making a clumpy mess. 

The only real downfall, aside from the monstrous wand and my inability to be mature about it, is that the mascara tends to get smudged on my eyelids during application. No matter how careful I am while dragging the wand through my lashes it's just too darn big and cumbersome to avoid lid contact if I want to get to the root of my lashes. Even now that the mascara is nearly all dried up I still can't seem to get a clean application; I get over it though because, as I've said, this mascara from MUFE makes my lashes look freaking fantastic.


Sadness that this little tube of mine is almost out! Tears for the lack of money in my bank account! But no worries about mascara running down my face because even though this sample isn't waterproof, it sure does act like it. For the month or so that I've been using the MUFE Smoky Extravagant Mascara, never have I ever ran into problems with flaking, smudging, or general pain from mascara mixing with my watery eyes. Pretty freaking spectacular if you ask me! Plus there's the fact that it's virtually weightless so the curl to my lashes stays perky throughout the day, refusing to wilt along with my mental alertness (homegirl would take a nap every day if she could). 

Have you tried the MUFE Smoky Extravagant Mascara?
Love it? Hate it?
What's your favorite high end mascara; one that's so good you don't care about the price?
Do share!!

Best & Worst of Beauty: September '14!



It's everybody's favorite time of month: monthly favorites time!! Was that sentence as annoying for you to read as it was for me to type? I love a good pun and everything but that was just… blech
Regardless, it really is that point in the month where everyone is going to be uploading/sharing their favorite beauty products for September; if you're interested in seeing what I've been loving (and loving not so much) then feel free to check out my pyramid style "Best & Worst of Beauty" video linked above!

I hope you're all having a great weekend so far~

NYX Macaron Lippie: First Impression + Review!



Because I'm an absolute goob and can't seem to keep a promise to be "back" on my blog, I'm just going to stop apologizing and hope you all are okay with my terribly infrequent/unpredictable posts and updates. I really am so sorry about it but with grad school and my jobs… I just can't always keep the ol' blog running smoothly like I can at other points of the year. Hopefully you can forgive me; I'm beyond grateful for those of you who stick around!

For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, I uploaded a video over on my YouTube channel reviewing the NYX Macaron Lippie "Lavender". It was incredibly outside of my comfort zone but fun to try out nonetheless! I hope you enjoy the awkwardness if you take the time to watch the video :)
