Blue Rocker EOTD

I'm on a roll! I think this is the most I've posted this year, haha. I'm really addicted to this Kat Von D palette. I've been reaching for this palette a lot. I actually did this look because I wanted to test out these Revlon self-adhesive lashes, and to my surprise, they work pretty well. The band is thicker than I imagined and the lashes are super soft. I personally think its easier to work with Korean/Japanese lashes, but maybe its because I'm just too used to slightly thicker, synthetic lashes. These Revlon ones are nice for natural looks, I'll do a proper review soon.

This look is pretty much like the Purple Smoke look I recently did, just using blue, silver and black. I hope you like!

I don't know why my eyes have been looking red lately.
I need eye drops!

PRODUCTS USED:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
NYX Jumbo Pencil Black Bean
Kat Von D Beethoven Palette
Revlon Fantasy Lengths Self-Adhesive Lashes


Anyone have a current fav mascara? I running out and I want to try something new. Suggestions please! <3

How To: Purple Smoke

I haven't done a make-up demo in quite a while. Here's a purple smoky look for you. I create the look using my newly acquired Kat Von D Beethoven palette. I included swatches so you can still create the look using similar colors. If I missed anything, let me know! Hope you enjoy and excuse the red eyes, lol. (:

Swatches

I recommend going light on the brows when doing dramatic eye looks.
Here's a demo on how I sharpen the edges to my look.

PRODUCTS USED:
MAC Soft Ochre Paintpot
Kat Von D Beethoven Palette
NYX Romance Palette
NYX Jumbo Pencil Black Bean
Black Eyeliner
Clinique High Lengths Mascara

Goody Thursday - Swatches Anyone?


I don't know about anyone else, but I've been getting some annoying spam comments lately. I'm sorry, but I don't want anything enlarged or enhanced! Thanks! (LOL) I haven't posted a haul in a while, and I've been happy with a lot of my purchases lately. These were not purchased all at once.

If you would like a chance to try this product, please join my GIVEAWAY, as I'll be including this as one of the prizes. (:


I don't see many reviews on Flirt! Cosmetics, so here goes. Flirt! is produced by Estee Lauder and is exclusive to Kohl's stores. All of their products are at the 10-14USD price range. Today, I'll be reviewing their blush line PEEK-A-BLUSH™ Sheer Powder Cheek Color. This range has 20 shades - which includes 2 highlighters. The shade I got was 03 Heartthrob.

Youtube Issues. Anyone having them?

So, I was going to upload a vid to show a sneak peak of the prizes, but when I logged in - it said I only had 5 subscriptions. I clicked to view it all and it said I had 25 subs - WTH? I lost nearly all of my subs and I think I lost my subscribers too. if you subbed to my channel, can you tell me if you still see me on your list? I don't know what's going on with youtube right now, so I don't want to risk uploading any vids if this is happening. Or was I hacked? Someone give me some insight please. ):

Lash Mantra Update: Week 3-5 & Food Porn?

I totally forgot to update this! During the third week, I didn't really see much of a difference, but then towards the end of week four and beginning of week five, I started to see some growth again. The lashes on my left eye are definitely fuller. If you look at the close-ups, you can see that the outer corner on my left eye has more lashes compared to the right - while the lashes on my right eye are slightly longer than the left. I love using this serum on my eyebrows as well. I over-plucked them a few weeks ago, and this product worked wonders. My eyebrows grew extremely quick (quicker than my lashes). Currently, my lashes are how they are now in these pictures. I'm currently in my allergies mode (I know, its weird having allergies in the summer). I'll start using it again once my allergies season is over.

Lemmings & Piece of Me July 2010

So I went to see The Last Airbender the other day in Dublin, and I have to say, as much as I liked the action and style, it doesn't make up for the bad acting, lol. I hope when the second installment comes out, it'll be better. We also went out to eat at the Pho Asian Bistro that was near the theater - and GOSH, it was the WORST Asian restaurant I've ever been to.

I haven't been wearing make-up lately because its so hot! Plus, my skin acts up when summer comes around so I tend to not put anything on my face. I have been eyeing some beauty products and I can't wait to get my hands on these once I start beauty shopping again, lol.
