Whole Lotta Candy

December 1st. LET THE HOLIDAYS BEGIN!!

I hope you all haven’t forgotten me…I know I took a lengthly break. But hey. At least I’m one trimester done with being a freshman! ;D 

You guys know how this goes: as soon as Christmas starts rolling around, brands come out with lots of value sets or little stocking-stuffer type products. I was at the Clinique counter the other day, and this cute threesome caught my eye. It was SO adorable!

If you guys have stuck around on my  blog for even a little bit, you’ll know I’m a girl who is totally lip product obsessed! A set with three mini chubby sticks (usually 17 bucks each), all for $25? I am sold.

This set comes with “Pudgy Peony”, “Voluptuous Violet”, and “Two Ton Tomato”.

Or, the fuchsia one, the purple one, and the red one.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I hate the name “Two Ton Tomato.”

 “What are you wearing on your lips?” “Oh, it’s ‘Two Ton Tomato’.”

Blechhh.

Anywayyyys. The colors have different payoffs, so here’s the jist of it:

Pudgy Peony: A great fuchsia/berry shade. Most pigmented of the three.

Voluptuous Violet: Sheer purple gloss.

Two Ton Tomato: Pretty red tint that you can build up to higher intensity.

The colors don’t last particularly long, either, so I find you have to reapply them. I don’t really mind. The formula is extremely moisturizing, perfect for the cold winter air.

I hope you guys had a lovely  Thanksgiving holiday. Love you guys!

Short Update (PLEASE READ!)

Hai my beautiful people!

Look, I’ll keep this brief. A really close friend of mine recently passed away and I’m having a super-tough time right now. I apologize for being so M.I.A, but I wanted to give you all a heads up.

Anyways, here’s a list of some things that have happened since then!

  • I got my Halloween costume!
  • Some MAC goodies came for me in the mail.
  • I finished reading “Romeo and Juliet”.
  • I STARTED A NEW PAINTING!!

I hope everyone’s day is lovely. Here’s a pic of Pusheen stirring a caldron!

Love y’all, and talk to you soon. Promise!

Embrace MESSY HAIR.

Embrace MESSY HAIR.

Ladies of planet Earth.. When you wake up in the morning with the major bed-head (the kind that is really annoying and awful), comb it out, fluff it, and embrace that sexy ‘do! To all the girls with thick, luxurious … Continue reading

MAC Lipsticks GALORE!!

Howdy-do, my precious cupcakes.

I got a suggestion from a few lovely followers to do some reviews. Specifically, on things that I got from a recent haul here.

The two lovely followers were beautiful Ashley and Olive, who were requesting lipstick and eyeshadow reviews. (Be expecting a lot of reviews in your future!) ;}

Soo, I took my three brand-spankin’-new MAC lipsticks and decided to swatch and describe them in detail.

First off, is sexy and red-hot Lady Danger.

IMG_5621

First, the color is gorgeous. It’s a lovely orange-red with a matte finish, very classic and vivid. You can get rich color in one swipe, so pigmentation is no problem. Neither is staying power…this stuff sticks. (AND stains!!!)

Now, guys, this is a matte lipstick. If you have dryer lips, this will cling to those icky bits of dead skin. So, I suggest exfoliating and putting on a lip conditioner before you use this!

The next time you’re at a MAC counter, try this baby on. You won’t regret it!

Second is flashy Girl About Town.

IMG_5631

This, in comparison to “Lady Danger”, is a thousand times more buttery. You can also build up the color, depending on if you want a sheer or opaque look.

Also, I loooove the color; it’s a medium fuchsia with blue undertones. On an olive-toned girl, it just makes my skin glow!  A cream/gloss finish isn’t half-bad either. It just looks so yummy on the lips!

LAST, but not least, angelic Creme Cup!

IMG_5625

To be honest, this doesn’t swatch too well, but it looks amazing on the lips! It’s not your average boring nude, it’s a milky, sweet pink that won’t wash you out.

I can totally understand the hype on this one. If you want a “My Lips But Better”, or MLBB shade, try this one! It’s light and buildable, perfect for everyday or to pair with a smokey eye.

Staying power could be better, but I don’t mind reapplying this one. It’s so moisturizing and creamyyy. :}

Anyway, that’s all the lippies! I hope these reviews were helpful, and I apologize for keeping it brief.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I’d be glad to get back to you!

PEACE!!!!! <333

Just as I’m getting back into my blogging ZONE, I’m going to be racing off to dance camp for four days, TOMORROW morning!!

I’m just posting this short, sweet lil update to let all my followers know that I will be back. When I’m dancing from 6AM to 10PM, that leaves no room for me to post. Plus, I’ll be bonding with my team!

I leave you with a sleepy kitten waving goodbye..but don’t worry, I won’t be gone forever. Image
