Why, hello there!

Hello, internet! It's been way too long since my last appearance here on the blog and I must say, I've missed you all dearly! Quite a bit has happened to me during my hiatus, which has made me focus more on myself as well as getting lazy and neglecting this baby of mine.

 For a while, I've felt that the blogging scene has gotten a bit repetitive and I kept seeing the same posts of the same products. Let's just say it made me lose interest. So, I decided to take a break - a long one at that. It made me reflect on what kind of content I wanted to post as well as some of the changes I will be making.

I'm back permanently now and I can't wait to share with you once again. Until then, I bid you adieu with some pictures of San Francisco. Talk to you soon!

Urban Decay The Vice Palette

Hello beauties! Hope you all have been doing well. To those who have just graduated, congratulations! I wish you all nothing but success!

When The Vice Palette from Urban Decay came out last winter (this review is so delayed, haha), I was on the fence whether or not to purchase. What actually changed my mind was a friend had gifted me an Ulta gift card so I only ended up paying 15USD for the palette – original price is 59USD. OH YEA! I was curious to see how some of Urban Decay’s matte shadows performed since I only own a few of their palettes – which are full of shimmer and glitter (excluding Naked and Buck in the Naked palette, I needed more to test out, haha!).

How To: Precious Paradise

I've realized that most have already gone to prom (haha, whoops!). So instead, I'll be doing some looks for graduation later in the next week. As promised, this look features two of the new Maybelline Summer 2013 Color Tattoos that I talked about in the last post. Here, I used Precious Pearl and Blue Paradise.

Here are the swatches of the shadows used in this look so you have an idea.
