Limited Edition Allure Beauty Box | 12 days till '16


I am not a huge fan of beauty boxes because they tend to lure you in with the one or two full sized products and then add a bunch of samples. However, when I heard about the Limited Edition Allure Beauty Box, I knew I could not pass it up.

For $45 dollars, you get the best beauty products 2015. You get five popular full-sized products and two sample products. I was really excited to try all the products because everything was new to me, but I heard great things about.

Black Friday Haul



I am not a very big fan of Black Friday. The thought of waking up early after eating a 25 course meal, only to be fighting over 5 for $25 underwear with some middle aged woman, is not very thrilling. However, for introverts like me, online shopping is the way to go. Of course I have to leave the house to hit up those pre-sales and scavenge the left-overs after D-Day.

My Everyday Makeup Bag


The Everyday Makeup Bag. A pretty important pouch, if I do say myself. Previously, I kept all my makeup in the shallow, middle drawer of my vanity because I thought it was most practical. However, I noticed I would constantly have to open it to get more products which would result in me nailing myself in the stomach. Imagine if I was in a hurry and needed something from in there, I would be dead. 

I then began to think of ways to reorganize my collection because I was over stuffing the drawer. I thought what can I do to spend no money, but have some structure in my makeup collection. So I decided to have one makeup bag dedicated to all my everyday essentials, while I keep everything else in little bins in my drawer. In case if I have the courage to open the drawer even knowing the consequences.

Mac Naked Pigment


Pigments -- the lost makeup product. This beauty is what I consider to be the closest thing to magic on earth, or in the makeup world if you will. They have so many colors; many finishes; and overall, are one of the most versatile products in the cosmetic universe.

Today's focus is going to be on the Mac Pigment in Naked (link). This probably one of the most popular pigments from Mac because of its natural aura.

Sephora Skincare


Usually when I see store branded items, I have this natural tendency to buy the original because I think the store brand is trying to trick me with their lower prices. Lol...but when I see significant price differences, I tend to want to get the cheaper items to see if it is a proper dupe. When I was cruising around Sephora looking for something to buy, I starting taking an interest in their skincare line.

Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette



As you are reading this, my first day of school will be tomorrow. I will officially be a senior in High School and I am pretty sure I am going to have a serious case of senioritis. Anyways, for the longest time I have been eyeing the Too Faced Natural Eye Palettes. I wanted the original with the shimmer/matte colors. However, my sister suggested to purchase this palette, which is the matte version, and I thought I would share my thoughts.

Chicago Haul


Hello everyone! Recently I traveled to the city of Chicago and while I was there I had the privilege to shop for some makeup. To be quite honest, I find it really funny how I am able to buy high-end makeup for the full price while I tend to go to the clearance aisle when it comes to clothing.

Laneige BB Cushion


If you are not a big fan of the Korean skincare/makeup like I am, then you probably do not know about the revolutionary BB Cushion. To me, it has changed the makeup game with it's unique concept and here is what I think about it.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eye Liners


When I started out with makeup, I told myself I was going to be an eyeliner master. Pencil, gel, liquid: you name it, I will master it! I did not have a lot of money, so I had to make do with buying the cheapest things I could find. I remember circling the drugstore multiple times until I found the Wet n Wild Color Icon Eye Liners and was automatically hooked because they were only a $1.00!

YSL Lippies


As your reading this, I am in the city of Chicago. Most likely traveling Michigan Avenue trying to spend money I do not I do not think I have told you, but YSL has to be my favorite high-end beauty brand (I will definitely be stopping by there tomorrow!). I think because growing up I was always exposed to the gold and red YSL logo, pretty fashionable colors if I do say so myself. Anyways, I thought I would share my beloved YSL lip products in a post ^_^

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation


With all of the new makeup trends to take our appearance to the next level, some of us forget to rock just our skin. In other cases, a lot of us pass up makeup because we think some foundation is too noticeable on the skin. Today, I am going to share the most natural/skin-like foundation I have ever tried. That foundation being the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation (link) which was released, maybe, last year. It can be bought at any Sephora and Ulta for approximately $40.00.

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado



For the past year, I have been avidly searching for an eye cream. I have a very dry and rough eye area making it hard to have even eyeshadow and eyeliner. I have been looking into them and was trying to get one for under the fifteen dollars until my sister bought home the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.

Origins Modern Friction Face Scrub



Exfoliating on a regular basis is really import because it removes all the dead skin cells of the face. Doing so leaves the skin looking fresh, radiant, and youthful. For the past few months, I have been using the Origins Modern Friction exfoliator. I thought it was about time for me to tell you what I think.

What's in my bag?


I have never been a fan of hand-held or shoulder bags because I like to keep my hands free and not having to worry about the strap consistently falling off. I keep my bag in two ways, small and simple. I have been using my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Clutch as my purse for the past two years. It was gift from my parents on my 15th birthday, you can read about and see what other gifts I got here.

New Face Favorites


Having perfect or close to prefect looking skin is very important to me. Keeping up with a strict skincare regimen and choosing good face makeup helps a great deal in creating a nice complexion. I thought I would show three new things I have been using to achieve that flawless skin look.

Clean Pores

When I was in the seventh grade I went through my hormone-change were I broke out with acne for the first time. It was not until I was in ninth grade that I got all up close and personal with my face in the mirror and saw whiteheads on my nose. It was so annoying because they would not get lost with a my cleanser.

I then started to rub my nose with a cotton pad soaked in a toner at night and the next morning my white heads were gone. I had to do this almost every night to ensure they were not coming back. Then I ran out of my trusty toner and had to find an alternative and I was NOT going back to those pore strips...they still haunt me.

I am not that kind of person who immediately throws out products when they are finished. Instead, I like to keep them in my makeup drawer and try to use hardcore force to squeeze every ounce of product of the bottle/tube. After re-vamping my makeup storage, I found a few items that I thought I would include in their very own empties post.

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream

Aloha~ Today, I have a makeup review for y'all. I will be reviewing the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream, which is the direct counterpart of the Maybelline Dream BB Cream. However,  I want to take the time to thank all of you for the wonderful and supportive comments that you guys left on my short hiatus post. I could not have done as well on the post without your support. ^_^

I got this in the shade medium sheer about six months ago from Target. It retailed for around eight to ten dollars, I cannot really remember the price because it was such a long time ago >.< The only thing that makes this BB Cream different from the original is that it has Salicylic Acid to help with acne.
