It's here!

Got around to making a brow tutorial. I'm using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade in Chocolate and applying it with her brow brush as well. Using application is a looot easier but I accidentally left the cap off one day so it's a little dried out so it's a bit harder for me.

I'm also using some random creamy concealer by Lancome to clean and sharpen the edges a bit.

Thanks for watching :>

Monthly Favorites: October

So I' decided to do a special monthly favorites and share a few of my favorite online subscriptions :)

1. Hulu+
Originally I got Hulu plus so that I could watch the last season of Teen Wolf, but they honestly have sooo much that I couldn't help but keep it. I have Netlfix as well but Netflix is more movie oriented whereas Hulu has TV shows galore that I usually don't get to watch. Needless to say I'm up all night watching Law & Order SVU.

2. Spotify
Honestly people don't give Spotify enough credit. You literally have every song in your phone without using up all your memory (however it does take up a bit of space.) I have Spotify on my computer, iPad and phone and I think I only pay like $10 a month? Something like that, you can even get a student discount and get half of that, it's honestly so worth it. I would highly recommend taking the time to check it out. Also if you download it for you computer I don't believe you have to pay, unless you want it on mobile devices.

3. Ipsy
Once again getting my beauty fix without paying a bunch of munnies and going out of my way to try new things (I honestly forget how much I pay a month for Ipsy?) They're usually pretty spot on with color matching, I've never really had problems with BB creams sent to me. For the most part I use Ipsy to help me figure out which eye shadows I shouldn't buy lol. For some reason I've never had good quality eye shadow sent to me before however I've had amazing BB creams and face scrubs sent to me that I actuall ended up buying full sizes up afterwards. But like in my las monthly Ipsy post I gave you a higher end alternation subscription called birchbox you can check it out here

So far that's it for now, I try not to go crazy with online subscriptions, there's a few I've been itching to try out but I've put them on hold for now..

What's In Ma Bag~ Ipsy

Hey guys, I got my ipsy bag a couple weeks ago and I'm not entirely sure if it's meant for October or November, but whatevs here it is. I finally have the energy to create a blog post about it.

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I am actually a fan of the Marc Anthony sprays. (I use the beach hair spray every now and then) I'm not sure if it's just me, but all his sprays smell so good lol

Next is this eye base in "submissive" by bombshell cosmetics. It's an odd taupe-y color and when I swatched it it was a bit thin? Usually eye bases are more creamy and thicker but I kinda had to layer it a bit to actually see some color. Personally I'm not a fan of bombshell cos. in general but I suppose if you were looking for a lighter base this would be good.

The favorite: I've been talking about It Cosmetics a lot recently and was surprised when the Bye Bye Under Eye was in the bag this month. It's one of my favorite makeup brands right now and an amazing concealer :>

This is a highlighter in "pink pearl" which actually reminded me of Benefit's High Beam which has a pearly finish to it as well. Although this Tempu highlighter has a pinker finish to it, I don't entirely mind the pinkyness so I may try it out the next few days.

And that is all, once again for those that don't know Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription. You can click here to learn more about it and subscribe. I'm kinda sad other bags from this month got something from Laura Mercier and I didn't :'(

Another good alternative to Ipsy is Birchbox, which is basically the same concept but which higher end makeup. You can check that out here as well :>

 I have yet to post an October favorites, but I'll get to it..

I got a Macbook Pro and I'm pretty excited. Now I can make actual legit youtube videos :> I'm going to start saving for the Final Cut Pro X video editing software, it's a good $200 :l But at least I'm not on an iPad anymore or my HP forced to use crappy film editors -.-

I have a few new posts coming up and probably a dark lip tutorial. I'm most likely going to do an updated brow tutorial (instead of a pictorial eee) so everyone can see in HD video guuurl.

I'm excited.

Healed tattoos

It's been a while since I added color to my sleeve and I'd thought I'd make a healed updated post on it. As usual Tieken does an amazing job, there's a few places I need to get touched up again when I go back for my next session. I'm horrible at letting my tattoos heal properly by constantly picking at the scabs :/ They end up looking like house tattoos sometimes. It's a bad habit.

My computer still isn't working for some reason so I'm trying to save for a MacBook Pro :/  I have to do everything from my iPad so bare with me u.u It5's driving me nuts. But I have an October favorites post and monthly ipsy bag post comin up :>

Reviews Reviews Reviews: Topshop

So I made my first purchase at the newly open San Diego Topshop :))) Immediately after my shift I went on the floor and picked up some things I've been eyeing. There's a lot of hype around our makeup, specifically the foundations. For those that don't know the people that actually make MAC makeup make our foundation as well. Which originally I disliked bc I hate MAC foundations and concealers, but I figured why not, it was like $14 I think? The quality if the foundation is amazing and has a nice velvety finish to it. I honestly didn't think I'd like it just because I'm very picky with what I put on my face but it's actually very nice. I wore it to Coscto and literally the first day I tried it out numerous people commented on my makeup that day. Whenever I try out new makeup and get compliments I just assume it's because of that product :> Hence my good review.

At first I wasn't a very big fan of the applicator. It's just a mini turkey baster basically, I would rather just pour it out myself or have a pump but it's not too bad.

NEXT, the nail polish. They have a lot of amazing colors and glitter nail polishes and I'm been meaning to try some polish with that metallic look so I went ahead and got this in "hidden treasure" and it actually came out a lot more yellow than I thought it would :/ I was slightly surprised, I was expecting a neat marine colored finish. It's not too bad, also dries quickly.

And that's that. Overall I'd say they're quality products indeed :> Keep a look out for my upcoming blog post, Tattoos 2.0 Color Edition (my updated version) n.n


Happy Halloweenie :3 (HUNDREDTH BLOG POST HOLLA)

Eeee my 100th blog post :>

I've been busy and haven't kept up with the Halloween posts :(  I have to make posts from my ipad from now on which is tedious but doable. I only have a few pictures from Halloween, but it was by far the best and spontaneous Halloween I've ever had to say the least. :')

Also I will be doing a Topshop makeup review very soon :>
