Review: NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in Beige

Someone might be reading this and thinking "Did you buy the wrong concealer?! Return it!" I didn't buy the wrong concealer, I promise! Okay, maybe I did... Kind of.

I bought it for contouring, not concealing! But I do wish NYX had a more middle of the road, not heavily red/orange-y and not overly yellow medium shade.

Blue & Green

My prelude to split hair.

I'm very hesitantly trying Manic Panic with low expectations—it's that notorious fade and other things that make the hair community cringe. (I swear, every time I've seen someone with Manic Panic hair, it just looks awful—extremely fluffy like it was very, very severely over-processed then they didn't care to do a treatment of some sort and the dye, which claims its conditioning, did nothing to re-hydrate it even a little bit!)

Review: OCC Metallic Lip Tar in Batty (Limited Edition)

When Batty first came out, I didn't know it was limited edition. I only knew I loved it and that the name alone was a reason to buy it.

Thankfully, someone was selling one on eBay!

Review: NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Black Berry

Thanks to Ulta having a massive 40% off sale, I was able to get this lip pencil for only $2.09 (regularly $3.49).

I was torn between their Slim pencil and the Retractable one. I dislike retractable pencils, they seem to break for me often... Or maybe it was just that particular eyeliner.

Review: OCC Lip Tar Test Tubes x3 in Pink Prism

I Bought This
I love OCC but I've never tried wearing a Lip Tar. I've only swatched and admired them.

I'm that girl who can't pick ONE color from a massive selection that's made to be mixed for custom shades. Especially when trying to pick a normal color—I pick out a weird color, like blue, purple, etc, very easily but tell me to get a normal color and I don't know what to do. But thanks to OCC's brilliance, these little Test Tubes make it easier.

Review: Hask Keratin Protein Smoothing Deep Conditioner

First time using a Hask product (you know how I feel about placenta hair treatments, ugh) and first time using a keratin product!

It was only $1.77, so this isn't a bank breaker luckily.

Look Ma! Bruises! (WARNING: BLOOD)

BEFORE I get comments of "you're glamorizing violence," the only thing I've wanted to do for the rest of my life as a job is makeup. Special effects makeup, because brides bore me. I've had black eyes before because hey, kids are stupid. I get bruises in daily life because I'm a klutz who will slam into an OPEN door. And jeez, does that HURT!

Tonight I got a bit bored. I needed to clean my brushes out, but first, I thought I'd play around with makeup.
