Hope you US beauties are having a good Thanksgiving holiday! Enjoy your time with your loved ones - and even the annoying ones, lol. This semester is about to be over in 2-3 weeks so I have a lot of cramming to do with projects and finals. Plus, work is a bit slow right now so I have until after Christmas until we start getting busy again, then a new semester will start - its going to be quite a headache!

Before I start my review, I'm going to announce the new winner of my giveaway. Since it is holidays right now, I'm going to send the winner their package after holidays are over - which is like next week, haha. So you can click on the image to see who the new winner is! Congrats! Please contact me within 48 hours with your name, email and preferred mailing address so I can send your package!
Now the review!

My friend and I have a collaboration in the works, and today we were doing some practice shots so she could get the comfortable with the camera. So I guess this can be OOTD post? My style's pretty boring and simple, and I mostly wear basic colors, lol. For some reason, my legs look real short, I don't know why. Then again, I have man legs so maybe that's why, haha!

Jacket - Express
Shirt - Zipia
Necklace - Forever 21
Pants - PacSun
Shoes - I forgot, lol.
Glasses - Prada

Not sure what happened (shutter speed maybe?), but she made me look ghostly, lol.

Be back again tomorrow with the awaited announcement, so keep a look out! :D

This month

I like: That I have more time for school.
I don't like: That my car is falling apart.
I want you to know: I'm happy where I'm at right now.
I've planned: To achieve what others say I can't.
I want to say to someone special: Thank you for keeping me grounded.

For a more interesting post, here's an EOTD/FOTD from a few weeks back. I tried a somewhat "editorial-esque" look with the overdone liner, exaggerated wing and light shadow. I used MAC Blacktrack Fluidline & MAC Dame's Desire/Majolica BR751 (silver lilac/purple)

Super late, I know. :D But I purchased this when MAC's Fabulous Felines came out last month (?) and I picked up this quad along with a pigment that I'll mention in another post. What attracted me most about this quad was the unique red-based brown with the teal/green overtone. All the colors seemed like they would compliment each other nicely. To be honest, I find this quad to be slightly disappointing.

I apologize for not updating as much as I did before. If you follow my TWITTER, you know what I've been doing. Do you remember the look that I did in this post back in September? By reading the title above - I used this very inexpensive palette to create this look!

BRAND: N.Y.C (New York Color)
PRODUCT: Individual Eyes Custom Compact in Union Square (for brown eyes)
PRICE: 3.99 or 4.99USD (I forgot, sorry T_T)
PROS: Varying textures, Pigmentation, Price
CONS Packaging, Some hard to work with
