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 :)

Got questions for me that you've always wanted answered?? Well hesitate no more! To celebrate reaching 10,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel (I don't think I'll ever be able to say that without my shedding a few glittering maiden tears in my soul) I figured I would do a Q&A video since it's so highly requested.

stila stay all day 10-in-1 HD illuminating beauty balm: First Impression + Review!



Happy weekend everyone!! I hope you're all enjoying it so far; even though I'm spending my days working (as per usual) at my retail job I'm beyond excited over the cool down weather-wise. Bring on the pants and sweaters! Adios to only being able to wear black because every other color shows the sweat dripping down my back! Bye-bye air conditioning bill! I'm just… ugh. Beyond.
Anyways, I posted a new video over on my YouTube channel the other day so feel free to check it out if you haven't already! It has nothing to do with the above chitchat but, well, you know. Hopefully you'll find it enjoyable nonetheless.

Makeup Collection | Vanity Tour (LIPSTICK, PERFUME, ORGANIZATION, ETC.)



Ever been curious to have a nosy around my vanity aka the place where I stockpile all of my beauty items? Well then you're in luck because I just recently posted a video giving a tour of the space on my YouTube channel
Super exciting; super long; super embarrassing. 
While I know my collection is modest compared to some of the big beauty names out on YouTube, it's definitely also not a 'normal' amount of makeup to own (hoard) either. But oh well… that's life I guess! We've all got our vices and makeup/beauty items happens to be mine. If you haven't seen the video yet and you'd like to then feel free to have a gander. If you do, as always, I hope you enjoy~

NOTD: Forever21 "Purple Confetti"


Welp, it's officially every student's least favorite time of the year: time to get back to the daily grind; back to the cornucopia of emotions occupying your every orifice 24/7; back to self-deprecation at its finest; time to go back to school. And, in true-to-Cassie-fashion, I'm clearly back at it… didn't I just proclaim that I was going to get back into regular blogging? Wasn't my last 'real' post a week ago now? Aren't I always saying how tiresome I am for only posting about freaking nail polish??? 

I'm so annoyed with myself. 
I'm also tired (even though we're only a week into the new semester; yikes).

Let's look at the pretty polish to make ourselves feel better, shall we?




I've said it a million times before and I'll say it a million times again: Forever21 makes, quite possibly, the best milky glitter polishes out there. And for only $2.80 a bottle? SOLD. I am such a happy customer (and have the cutest looking nails 'ta boot).
"Purple Confetti" is a gorgeously muted lavender cream with baby pink, blue, and silver glitter laced throughout. In terms of the 'too much glitter'/'not enough glitter' spectrum I'd say this polish leans a little on the glitter heavy side but, let's be honest, I'm the last person to complain about a bit of extra sparkle. When you put two or three layers of the polish on your nails it gives a good illusion of depth and really creates a nice contrast between the milky lavender base and sometimes-matte-sometimes-sparkly pieces of glitter (depending on how buried in polish they are [or aren't]).





Overall: it's love. I just can't get over how endearing the glitter polishes from Forever21 are. "Purple Confetti" is particularly whimsical and makes all of the bad-back-to-school-feelings seem a bit less potent.
If you haven't seen the plethora of other milky glitters from Forever21 I've reviewed then feel free to take a gander hereor herehere tooand here's another one for good measure!

What are your favorite milky glitter polishes?
Are you in school at the moment?
How's the new semester treating you?
Do share!!
