UD Fun Palette: Bite-Sized Review

Hehe hey my cutiepies!

This is a palette I purchased recently, that has to be my go-to!

Here…let me explain why….

Image

The URBAN DECAY FUN PALETTE. A festive rainbow of buttery seductiveness! Gorgeous shades for all eye colors!! AUGHHHHH CAN IT BE TRUE? DO MY EYES DECEIVE ME?

For one: The colors are sooooo buttery and light, it’s not like you’re wearing eyeshadow at all! For two: The colors are very pigmented, fun and playful. (I especially love Fishnet for my brown eyes!!) For three: They all go together so beautifully! And PLUS: The packaging is to DIE FOR.

This has to be the most beautiful UD palette I’ve ever seen!! (Besides Naked, of course.)

Nothing says “ooh la-la” more than a flatteringly smudged, rock-star eye, with depth and light in all the right place, fringy lashes, and a full, pouty lip.

You should totally check this out, it’s a steal! Six UD eyeshadows (18 bucks each) for 36 DOLLAS? Hell to the yeah!

Anyways, have a fun, colorful day! Talk to you soon.

Sweet Purple Smoke

Hi starlets and makeup mavens!

This is a look I wore yesterday, and it has to be one of my favorite ones I have ever done. ImageImageImage

The products I used on my eyes were the Urban Decay shadows in “Fishnet” and “Freakshow”, with Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara on my lashes. Fishnet is a light, buttery almost iridescent lilac, and Freakshow’s a purple matte color that I layered on my crease to give it that slightly smoky effect.

On my skin I’m wearing Dr. Jart SPF 45 PA+++ BB Cream, with Clinique Stay Matte pressed powder on top. :}

And, last but not least, on my lips I’m wearing MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Hot Gossip!

Just wanted to show ya what I wore, and wondered your thoughts! I named this look “Sweet Purple Smoke” because it’s like a sweet, subtle, slightly smoky eye that looks sort of sultry, but also whimsical and fun at the same time.

P.S: SORRY IF I’VE BEEN OVER-LOADING YOUR FEED WITH POSTS. I don’t have any homework today so that equals more blogging time! :}

MAC Mini-Haul

Aloha my beautifuls!

I recently went to my Macy’s to purchase a couple MAC lipsticks I’d had my eye on for a while. (By a couple, I really mean four.)

I got Viva Glam V, Rebel, MAC Red, and Up The Amp, four beautiful, classic MAC staples. This is going to be what I like to call it, a “bite-sized mini-hall”. It’s going to be short, sweet, and simple; BITE-SIZED. Enjoy!

Up The Amp:

Such a gorgeous lavender-violet, that can look really soft or really powerful and peppy. It’s a refreshing, unique, ladylike color, that can sometimes look more lilac than violet on the lips.

It sort of reminds me of candy, unicorns, cupcakes, flowers or pop-stars, something bright and slightly magical, glamorous and fun!

Viva Glam V: 

This is a buttery, delicious nude that reminds me of something sweet. It makes your lips look plump and healthy, and has enough shimmer to where it isn’t noticeable or unflatteringly frosty.

MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick See the very fine gold glitter? It’s not your average, boring nude, it’s the perfect MLBB (My Lips But Better), and has a nice sheen, giving your pout dimension!

Rebel: 

OHHHHHH MY GOSHNESSS! Can anyone say hello gorgeous?? This is THE PERFECT color for me. It’s an easy to layer, creamy, flattering color that can look rebellious, edgy, and elegant all at once…..it’s perfect! When I apply it, it instantly makes me feel very “va-va-voom”, “bow-chicka-wow-wow”,  and just plain confident! A lipstick like THAT deserves a gold star.

IMG_1275 Depending on your skin tone, it will bring different things out. On my skin, it brought out my golden undertones, and my warm brown eyes. On cooler-toned girls, it would totally make a ethereal, porcelain complexion stand out, and this would also look stunning on a darker complexion.

MAC Red: 

Finally found the perfect, classic red! This is definitely a new must-have for me. It’s a bright, classic red that some describe as “cool” or “bluish”, but it actually looks really beautiful on my warm-nuetral complexion! It is such a classic, iconic color with a stunning formula, that will make you feel just like the glam, Hollywood beauty, Marilyn Monroe.

Anyway, it looks cherry-red in the tube, but you can tone down the color to make it more of a stain if you’d like. This is WAAAY brighter than Russian Red F.I.Y, and I know I will love it forever!

Anyway my darlings, I hope you liked this short-and-sweet “mini-haul”. These are all gorgeous colors that I really reccommend, and if you try them, let me know how you liked them! Anyway, it’s snacky-snack time for me, and I’ll be back soon. Ciao!

The Wonderful World of Lipstick

Oooh lipstick, you’re so auhmayzing! So creamy and sweet and beautiful!

Anyway, hey my cuddly wuddlies! This is going to be a miscellaneous collection of reviews of some of my FAVORITE lipsticks. Like, ever. On this whole wide Earth. Or universe. Or whatevs.

OKAY #1: MAC Lipstick (Cremesheens)

  AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH they’re great! They’re really..well, creamy! (Hence the name, hehe)  My favorite is the shade “Hot Gossip”, which is a nice, light pink with touches of lilac-plum. Honestly, it looks warmer in the bullet, but it would still work for a variety of skin-tones because it’s not really cool.

Image Okay so the MAC lipsticks are amazing, period. They smell like freaking vanilla cupcakes, rainbows, candy, and HAPPINESS!!!! And they’re like BUTTAH. And dat color selection! I mean, dammmnn.

NUMBA 2: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick 

These are super moisturizing and super pigmented! They are, like, three dollars more than the MAC ones, and not that different from Cremesheens, but these are some amazing formulas.

For one, they make your lips look plump, juicy, and hydrated. For two, they have colors for everyone! And for three, they stay on through eating/drinking/talking/kissing. They’re pretty sensational.

               Image

And, a plus, they’re really beautiful, especially on camera. The colors are certainly legendary!

BOW-CHICKA-WOW-WOW #4: Clinique Buttershine Lipstick  

Mmm, these are great! It’s like an amped-up, better-quality version of the Revlon Lip Butters! Only way more pigmented and long-wearing, and with a better range of shades.

The name, “Buttershine”, makes you think it would slip and slide, right? Wrooong! It can stick to your pout WITHOUT drying down to an oddly-matte finish, and is so rich in formula there’s no need for a balm underneath.  Image

My favorite color is berry blush, because it’s like the perfect “my lips but better” shade.

Anyway, thanks a lot (if you managed to read this through), and I really, really hope I’m not posting to a blank wall! I’ll be back in a couple days with a MAC haul, and maybe a few things in between. I hope you have a gorgeous, gorgeous day!

Hair and Winter Formals

Hello my little cream-puffs!

Okay, I’ll be honest with you, my hair is totally-not picture perfect. It’s a giant, multi-hued, ombre-frizzball of SADNESS. I don’t straighten it, or spray it, or curl it, it’s just naturally wavy-curly-frizzy, a combination I like to call “wacuizzy” (wack-oo-iz-ee.) the most horrendous hair type I know of.

Image

Most of the girls at my school straighten their hair, so it’s all glossy and swishy and long, and they can actually DO STUFF with it!

I going to winter formal this month (the 19th, just 10 DAYS away!) and have NO IDEA what to do with my wacuizzy hair. I bought a dress at this place called “The Annex”. Image

It’s expresso-colored with multi-hued sequins dotted here and there, with a swishy skirt that’s fun to dance and twirl in!

IMG_0727 <—— (This is my little wristlet!)

AND, it’s a high-school formal, (and I’m only in 8th grade!), so I’ll be surrounded by people who are much older than me, which kind of freaks me out. My date totally kicked me to the curb, so I’m going with a few friends instead. I mean, come on, a beautiful dress and nowhere to go in it? What a waste!

Do you think my dress is okay? I have no idea what color to paint my nails, or what jewelry to wear, and my hair is still a complete mess…..and, oh jeez I’m rambling. Anyway, I hope you, (my small group of followers), have wonderful days and I’ll talk to you guys soon!

P.S Sorry if this was a little short. I should probably go start my homework..(I haven’t even cracked open my back-pack yet!).

Today

Hello my sunshines!!

I’m Isabella, and I thought I might want to tell you a bit about myself before I begin my blog. So…I guess you could call this my “formal intro”. Cue the theme music!!! ….Hah, just kidding…I’m not THAT important :}

Anyway, today was totally bleak. It was rainy, gray, and cold, a day for leggings and tights which I stubbornly refuse to wear. I hate tights. They just make me feel so trapped and bundled-up, and I don’t like that at all. I’m not saying I dress skimpy or anything, but tights and me just don’t mix well.

I wore this today: Image

A lot of it was old clothes, dazzled up by new layers I got over Christmas. Of course, it did get some bitchy comments at school, but hey, whatevs.

As Lady Gaga says “I was born this waaaaaaay!”

My Earliest Memory of Color

When I was younger, everything felt new. It was a new world, a new life, new beginnings. Already at a small age, I was interested in color. Colors made me happy, and they made everyone else happy too. I drew all the time, every day, on paper bags or menus or computer paper or even on myself, with crayons or whatever I could get my hands on. My drawings made people seem proud of me.

I was six then, now I’m 13, and I know one thing. I love fashion.

Fashion is art you can touch, smell, and wear; it’s art that moves with you. It can create a statement. I’m young, but it is truly my passion.

I know tons of girls go through the “I wanna be a pop-star” faze or the “I wanna be a fashion designer” faze, or the “I’m emo” faze (yikes!). But this isn’t a faze, art is truly what I enjoy.

This blog is to share my journey through adolescence, my experiences, ideas, thoughts, and yes, my art. My fashion. My creativity. I hope you, whoever is reading this, is interested in what I have to say.
