Update + A Partial Review

It looks like I won't be really feeling better for a little longer. I can mostly breathe (still a little stuffy), but I'm still coughing up my lungs and have basically no energy.

Review: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in 605 Strawberry Milk, 621A Pure Gold, & 604 Milk

I love NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. Melt on the lid and glide across the skin like butter in a hot skillet. Generally not that impressed by eye pencils but there are winners out there and these are among them!

Review: NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in 595 Strawberry Milk

I don't really like strawberry milk, I never really liked it as a child. I can't even drink milk anymore.

But this is a Strawberry Milk I can actually have.

Swatched & Tested: NYX Glam Liner Aqua Luxe Liquid Liner + Bonus Swatches

I stopped by Ulta today to pick up NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencil in 604 Milk, which is in a forthcoming review. While I was there, I swatched the Glam Liners that were available. As you've read, I can't wear these.

EOTD: Mint + Gold

I don't really like gold that much, but I do like mint. I'm not sure what exactly made me think of this, because I don't really look at eye makeup photos online that often or at color combinations. I don't have or use Pinterest (find it stupid personally).

I'm sorry, I have a sinus infection!

Normally, I would post and do my pictures. Get them cropped, maybe adjust lighting so its more accurate or sharpen the photo, and watermark them.

However! Friday, my energy level dropped 100 fold by the time I got to Ze Boyfriend's. Most of Friday, I was feeling okay. My nose was stuffed when I woke up but it cleared when I sat up in bed. Didn't think any of it but then the base of my skull, where it meets the top of my neck and spine, started to hurt horribly. Really tried not to think about it, went on doing my makeup (which I really want to post! I thought it was gorgeous and will work on various skintones!), and the pain went away.

Later on, as afternoon turned to night, I just got lethargic. My nose became stuffed up relatively quickly, my throat started to hurt, and I wanted to roll over and die. I haven't been much up to doing things, I had a tutorial I was going to do but it's being put off for the time being since I don't have the energy.

I will finish up whatever reviews that are waiting, one mainly needs photos and I need to watermark my photos from the look. I'm sorry, everyone. I don't normally get sick! I get a sinus infection maybe once a year and I don't have allergies.

I'll be taking it easy and working on getting better for the time being. Posts might be slowed. One good thing about this weekend: Ze Boyfriend had been to an arcade/carnival-type thing and won me two Hello Kitty plushies. They're adorable. One has a punk-y theme of black and pink, with striped stockings.

Please don't do everything you read on the Internet

Just please, don't do it.

There's a lot of bad information floating around the web. One such tip is using Vaseline as an eye makeup remover.

Affiliate: PinkyParadise Circle Lens Store

I've mentione before in maybe one or two posts that I have worn circle lenses and loved them. Like really, really loved them.

Well, now, I'm affiliated with PinkyParadise, my favorite and preferred lens store.

Review: Wet n Wild Spring Forward Going in the Wild Palette

URG. This palette! It's slightly frustrating... I like the colors. I like the brand. But application?

Guess who just set up a Facebook fan page!

MEEEEE ~ I'm very excited for this. It means I can keep in touch with you in another form. The link is on my Contact page and will be right here. If you have suggestions, you can make them there if you aren't comfortable with the contact form.

And don't worry; Facebook actually has a translation function (though it isn't extremely accurate). I hope you make use of these options, my wonderful readers! I'm going to try and start giving the blog a "make-over." Maybe it's a make-better?

New Page: Conatct

Yaaaaay I finally got those pages up! I'm sorry, but Blogger has some silly presets in place. I had a few pages in place but were set to "don't show." How... Anti-helpful.

BUT!! I now have a contact page, which goes directly to my email (I had Ze Boyfriend test it), so you will be getting in touch with me directly by filling out the form if you don't want to leave a comment. You can leave feedback, recommend or ask for specific product reviews and make suggestions.

I hope you'll make use of it. I will reply personally to all emails unless I possibly get backed up on replies. Enjoy ~


Sample Review: L'Oreal Total Repair 5 (Shampoo, Conditioner & Damage Erasing Balm)

Yep, a sample review. Not because I received a sample to review, but because Ze Boyfriend had sample packets of the shampoo, conditioner and damage repairing balm lying around. My hair wasn't feeling so great after I tried a yogurt mask on it.

Moral of the story: don't use Greek yogurt on your hair in an attempt to do a moisturizing yogurt hair mask.

Sorry, Here's Some Art! Part 2

I'm sorry I haven't reviewed anything recently or finished up that Gatsby post. I've just been in a funk sadly.

I'll be picking things up to review and will review a Wet n Wild palette I have (one that is a bit of a issue for me but it's more like it needs the right primer!).

Telephone for Mr. Jay Gatsby! Flapper Eye & Lip Tutorial

I promise a separate tutorial on the eyes and lips and here it is! I'm sure from the popularity of my BB cream post that you all know I'm using only my BB cream and NYX's Stay Matte powder for my foundation.

Let's begin, shall we?

Telephone for Mr. Jay Gatsby! (An attempted 1920s Flapper FOTD)

Ze Boyfriend took me to see The Great Gatsby! I really like going all-out for certain movies (yes, this is weird. I don't care). Since this movie takes place in the summer of 1922, I knew flapper makeup would work wonderfully.

Dual Review: Benefit Watt's Up! Luminizer & They're Real! Mascara

I have my (second) birthday gift of the year!* It's from Sephora, being that I'm a Beauty Insider and very much enjoy it. Gifts are fun,especially little freebies from different brands.
This year, the gift is from Benefit, called "Real Birthday Turn-Ons." Oh Benefit...
