Masquerade Mask

I know this is super super late but i still wanted to post this look i did on Halloween. I had to rush and do it because i had to do my boyfriend's zombie makeup and it took FOREVER, So we were already late and i rushed on my makeup and i didn't even have time to do my hair =(
and again i apologize for putting this up soo late but i thought i should still put it up cause i think it was so creative and i was happy with the results since it was my first time doing a mask. Everyone thought it was real! lol

So all i did was outline the mask and fill it in with black
then i added some silver eyeshadow and silver glitter on top and
i glued some rhinestones around the mask, on my lid and some under my eye
then i glued some loose feathers to the side of my face and i put a red pin
behind the feathers and done!
it was very simple but i wish i would've had more time cause i would have done much more detail.
but oh well, i still loved it!

P.S Since i was rushing to do my makeup i totally forgot to apply eyeshadow primer (Big Mistake!)
and since i took these pics at the end of the night you can see the makeup is fading, and its sort of coming off in some areas so i apologize.

Thanks for reading & Hope you enjoyed it!

E.L.F Makeup Remover Wipes Review

Ive been wanting to try these makeup remover wipes since forever because they are very inexpensive which is a plus because i go through wipes very fast since i wear makeup almost everyday and makeup remover can be eventually add up and be very expensive so since these are $3 i thought hey let me give em' a try.


Price:$3.00 20 Wipes
E.L.F Website

"Gently and easily cleans skin to remove all traces of makeup and dirt, even waterproof mascara. Great for on-the-go travel. Gentle cloths are soft and soothing for even the most sensitive skin. Infused with Aloe Vera Extract for deep hydration and moisture. 20 Pre-moistened cloths included."

On the back it says to rinse your face after you remove your makeup which i never do but with these i feel like you should because the wipes leave your skin feeling sort of too moisturizing and and your skin has an oily film on it so i did rinse my face afterwards and all that went away. The wipes itself are very thin and you can actually see through them so it doesn't remove my makeup all that great. I usually need 2 wipes to fully remove my makeup but that's because i do wear foundation, concealer, eyeshadow,powder etc.... so if your the kind of person that doesn't wear a lot of makeup then these are great for you but if you tend to wear a lot then i don't recommend them because you will have to use more than one therefore your going to use them up faster and have to buy some sooner. These wipes weren't so bad because they didn't break me out and they were gentle on my skin but it just didn't remove all my makeup with one wipe.

I always use the neutrogena makeup remover wipes and i prefer those much better because you only need one wipe to remove all your makeup and you don't have to rinse afterwards and they are also much thicker so that's good. Another thing is that the neutrogena wipes has 25 and its around $5-6 so for a few more dollars I'd rather go with the neutrogena wipes.

Overall E.L.F makeup remover wipes are best for people who do not wear a lot of makeup or for those who don't wear makeup often.

    Great Makeup App!

    So i found this App for my iPhone that lets you create many makeup looks on a face chart. The cool thing about it is that you get to choose makeup from MAC and Makeup Forever, they have all their shades in lipstick, eyeshadow, blush, and foundation.
    you can let your imagination run wild and create many looks. At first i did find it hard to use and it kinda is until you get used to it so don't give up and keep trying. i love it because i can create many looks that i can later re-create on my face. Experimenting on this app definitely gives me ideas and i get to go all out and be super creative which i love! This app is free but they do offer the glamzy pro for $2.99 that offers more advantages.

    Ive done so many makeup looks its crazy but if i show all of them it would be a long post so here's just a few that i created.
    I really took my time on these and to be honest my finger hurt after doing them lol cause i was on it all day..that's how addicting it is so hopefully you enjoy it as much as i do

    you can get this App on the ipod touch, ipad, and android as well as other phones so to check it out go to

    if you do download it then i hope you have fun cause theres tons of makeup possibilities!


    Shop NYX on HauteLook!

    On Tuesday September 27th NYX will be for sale on HauteLook and its great because you will be able to buy some of their new products for a great price so i can't wait! you do have to register to hautelook to shop there but its free to join and i believe the sale starts at 8am so rise and shine early before things sell out

    Great Money Saving Tip!

    We all know that buying an eyeshadow pan is cheaper than buying an eyeshadow pot but a lot of the times the palette itself can be expensive. So i decided to buy this palette because it was super cheap ($1) and i was very excited to find that my MAC eyeshadows fit in the palette! which is great because a MAC quad palette is $6 and the palette thats holds 15 shadows is $14 and although i like the fact that MAC palettes are black and that they are labeled MAC i prefer using this other alternative cause hey! nothing beats a $1 palette and im trying to save money here

    E.L.F Palette

    This palette is magnetic so your eyeshadow pans will not fall out and as you can see in the middle there is a makeup applicator which im not going to use but maybe some of you guys might like it. Also it has a mirror which i think its great, definitely a plus!

    Here's the palette with the MAC eyeshadows that i use the most, I flipped the palette over to make sure the pans stay and yup it works!

    The only eyeshadow pans i own are from MAC so i don't know if any other brand of eyeshadow pans will fit this palette but hey for a $1 its worth trying it out.

    I bought mine at target but you can also order it online

    twitter logo Pictures, Images and Photos

    Hello my lovely beauties♥, i know I've been gone for a while and i haven't been posting anything so for those who are curious i will tell you all why.......
    my boyfriend's laptop screen broke so he disconnected my computer so he can connect his laptop to my screen. Which i thought it was temporary but apparently not and he didn't even ask so i kinda got upset and i cant post much on my blog because i have all my blog pix on my computer. So as of now I'm using my sisters laptop which makes it harder to upload and edit my pics which is why i haven't been posting anything lately. So i apologize but i still log on and view all the different posts from all the lovely bloggers which i love and it makes me miss posting on my blog =( but hopefully i will fix the problem soon.

    But for now i wanted to actually start tweeting because I've had my twitter forever but i haven't actually used it so to keep in contact with all you guys i want you to go follow me and that way we can keep in touch. I love seeing what other people tweet! i find it very interesting so I'm excited to start doing it myself and i am a very random person lol so expect random tweets =)

    I miss blogging but hopefully i will post soon =D
    i haven't disappeared, i will be back soon!

    Benefits of Green Tea

    For this post i wanted to talk to you guys about green tea and all the benefits it has. For the people that drink green tea regularly will now know all the great things its doing for you and for the people that have never tried it or don't like teas then maybe after this you'll be willing to give it a shot.

    Green Tea has many anti-oxidants that provides you with lots of benefits

    Beauty Benefits: with consumption of green tea and topically applied green tea products(cleansers, toners, moisturizers, masks,...etc)

  • Helps slow down the effects of aging

  • Controls redness in the skin especially sensitive skin and rosacea

  • Its an extra UV protection aside with your sunscreen

  • Reduces and prevents acne

  • It can whiten your teeth

  • Helps with blemishes and sunspots

  • Ease tired and puffy eyes soaking cotton balls in cool tea and placing them over your eyes

  • you can make many beauty products from green tea such as moisturizers, lip balm, face/body scrub, toner, face mask,

  • Health Benefits: With consumption of green tea

  • helps prevent tooth decay and plaque

  • helps fight off infections

  • helps treat cuts, scrapes and inflammation

  • helps with the effects of allergies

  • can lower chances of cancer, heart diseases,high cholesterol, and many other diseases

  • boosts immune system

  • it can help you loose weight

  • theres lots more benefits but i don't want to go on and on listing them all so those are just a few to give you an idea on how much green tea can help

    the best green tea to use is matcha green tea because it has 100% of it anti-oxidants and nutrients.

    for those people who dislike hot teas then i recommend Starbucks green tea frapuccino or the green tea latte..i love both of them and its so much tastier than drinking plain tea. I'm not a big fan of hot teas so i prefer these options much better but a warm tea once in a while is quite relaxing and soothing.

    Extra tip: don't make your tea in boiling hot water because it can kill most of the anti-oxidants and nutrients that carry the health benefits so its best to use semi hot/warm water

    Thanks for reading my long post =)

    Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer Review

    So I'm pretty sure you guys have heard of this concealer because people are going crazy for it and they have a good reason for it lol.

    Medium (what i have)

    Where To Buy:


    so this is what the website says about the product:

    "A heavy duty, highly pigmented, multi-use concealer that delivers ultimate coverage. The formula blends seamlessly into skin with plenty of play time creating a flawless and natural look perfect for any occasion. You can hide everything from dark circles and blemishes to tattoos!"

    What i say (My review):

    The Good:
    This concealer is amazing, it will cover anything..any imperfections, dark circles and believe it or not it actually does cover tattoos, i don't have any but my bf does and he let me test it out on him and yup it works. it is a very thick consistency so it does need a lot of blending so its best to apply it with a blending fluffy brush like MAC's 224. and another great thing about it is the size, its pretty big because most concealers come in a small pot/tube since you don't need very much but The hard candy concealer will last you years and years lol no lie because the formula is thick and very pigmented/opaque so you only need a very very tiny tiny! amount. I'm not lying, you need less than a dot. The amount i used in the swatch picture will cover your whole face lol. I also like how it comes with a small concealer pencil which i use for small spots that don't need very much coverage. This concealer does wonders but i mainly use it for blemishes/redness and not for under eye dark circles which brings me to the bad part.......

    P.S another great thing is the price! so cheap

    The Bad:
    This concealer completely vanishes my dark circles which i love but what i hate is that no matter how i apply it, how much, or how i blend it,  it always creases on me which is a big thumbs down for me. even if i apply a tiny amount it accentuates my fine lines and it looks very dry under the eyes so if you don't really have dark circles then skip it, i use my regular everyday concealer under my eyes, but if you have terrible under eye dark circles then i recommend using and under eye primer or a thick moisturizing eye cream and blend blend blend the concealer so it doesn't crease as much or maybe it won't crease at all for you. That's the only bad part about this concealer, other than that its great and i recommend it.

    My New Favorite Nail Ploish: Mint Sorbet

    Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Mint Sorbet

    Ive been on the hunt for the perfect mint nail polish because im obsessed with mint everything lol. I was going to buy china glaze nail polish in refresh mint which is $5.99. Then i saw this nail polish (sally hansen xtreme wear) online and i thought i would go look at it in person. its funny because it was out of stock and i got sad but then i saw it in another nail polish section of another brand and it was the last one and i got happy haha funny huh.

    Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet (No Flash)
    It was very cheap for about $2.50 at walmart. When i tried it on i fell in love. its the perfect shade of mint just like the icecream. I personally don't like mint colors that are blue toned i like the green toned. Thats why the picture has no flash because every pic i took in flash looked blue. From what Ive seen on blogs i think mint sorbet is a close dupe to china glaze refresh mint.

    I love it because its so true to color and very opaque. i hardly applied a 2nd coat and it is very rich in color. This is the only picture with flash that truly captured the color. i didn't apply a base or top coat and the color has lasted and it hasnt chipped. Amazing! i love it..i wear it everyday.

    What is your favorite Nail Polish?

    I ♥ Starbucks

    Ice Cream

    So i bought the strawberries & creme starbucks ice cream and I'm so glad i did because i literally went on an ice cream hunt to look for it lol. i couldn't find it anywhere! until i found it at walmart when they restocked! which gets me kinda angry cause that's the first place i looked and it wasn't there until i went back a 2nd time. i wen to vons, stater bros, and target and no!   lol I'm crazy for ice cream =D

    I often get the strawberries & creme frappuccino because when my son sees me with a frappuccino he always wants one & i don't wanna give him anything coffee and this was also the 1st drink i ever got from starbucks because i used to completely hate coffee. So This ice cream tastes just the same if not better than the actual drink. I love it soo much and it has pieces/chunks of strawberries in it which i like. This ice cream is very addicting and i can have it all day because it has no coffee. i don't know about you guys but if i have too much coffee in one day i get tired of taste fast. This ice cream tastes great and it good for the people who dislike coffee. A+++


    From May 6-15 starbucks is offering half off frappuccino from 3:00-5:00 which is amazing. i went the 6th and Ive been going everyday to get my frappuccino lol (call me crazy but i love starbucks) I'm really sorry I'm telling u guys all late but i thought u guys might know since it is being advertised online and on t.v but you can still take advantage until the 15th.

    So what I've been getting lately is the new mocha coconut frappuccino and the coconut & creme frappuccino which i love and i am obsessed with. I love anything coconut as far as scent and taste so when i saw these i got super excited.
    and i believe these are for limited time

    i took a quick pic of the coconut & creme so its bad quality.(sorry) as you can see I've already drank a good amount lol and u can see the toasted coconut on top which i love as well. This has no coffee which is good cause my son loves it. This one tastes like sweet coconut milk and even if u don't like coconut then u might still want to give it a try cause my bf hates coconut but he liked this one.

    A blend of milk, ice and coconut-flavored syrup, blended and topped with sweetened whipped cream and toasted coconut flakes.

    The mocha coconut frappuccino is great as well. I don't have a pic of it because i didn't have my cam with me but it looks just like the picture above the coconut one. This one does have coffee and i love it because you can taste the coconut and the chocolate mmm its so delicious.

    Rich mocha sauce and coconut-flavored syrup blended with coffee, fresh milk, and ice. Topped with sweetened whipped cream, mocha drizzle and toasted coconut flakes. 

    Starbucks Petites
    Cake pops
    Left to right: Birthday cake, Rocky road, and Tiramisu 

    I don't know if you guys have tried this but u definitely should they are really good and they are perfect to have with your starbucks drink. I don't know how long they have had these out cause i never really look at their bakery section but u should cause they have so many amazing things. My favorite one is the rocky road one and i tried the birthday cake one today which i love too. but I'm a chocolate person so rocky road for me

    Price: 1 for $1.50, 2 for $2.50, and 6 for $7.50 (price varies per area)

    Birthday Cake Cake Pop:

    Vanilla cake and icing, dipped in a pink chocolaty coating with white sprinkles.

    Rocky Road Cake Pop:(favorite one)
    (I have no picture because i ate it it in the car lol)
    Chocolate cake and icing dipped in a dark chocolaty coating, with mini marshmallows and roasted almonds.

    Tiramisu Cake Pop:
    Vanilla cake and Starbucks® coffee with vanilla icing, dipped in mocha flavored chocolaty coating, with a chocolate coffee bean.

    Fashion Haul

    All the stuff that I'm going to show in this blog post wasn't bought all at the same time. Ive been shopping lately and i wanted to include all the stuff in one post instead of making separate posts. I did buy some of this stuff on separate days. All the stuff I've been buying lately are for spring because i have tons of winter clothes and hardly any spring/summer clothes so I've been shopping like crazy lol..... Ok so onto the goodies =)


    All this jewelry i purchased from forever 21. Ive been obsessed with their jewelry because its really nice and affordable which i love. I don't like to buy expensive jewelry because i always tend to lose them or break them lol. Ive also been buying a lot of gold because i hardly have any and i think its great for spring because it looks lovely with corals,pinks,greens, and any other bright color. and gold is compliments ladies on the tanner/darker side like myself.

    All the necklaces i own are long and very out there so i wanted to buy simple small necklaces. a simple necklace for certain types of shirts that wont look good with long necklaces, for when your wearing big earrings. Because they are so simple they can be worn with any outfit. I really really like them and the best part is that they are very affordable that's why I've been buying lots of these.
    $1.50 (gold heart)
    $2.80 (silver love heart)
    $2.80 (gold Rose)

    I'm usually into big dangle earrings but I have noticed that sometimes when my outfit, makeup , or hair is too much or a certain style then its best to wear studs but i never owned any (except when i was little lol). So I'm very glad i bought these because they are very simple but very pretty and it doesn't overdo it. Its nice for when you have a big/extravagant necklace then the earrings tones it down a bit.

    Price: $2.80

    I bought these because i love the mint/gold combination. I really love them they scream spring lol. The rings i liked very much as well because they come in a set of 3 and they are meant to wear together in one finger and I've always wanted to get some like these but usually they are expensive. but both pieces were affordable
    $3.80 (earrings)
    $2.80 (rings)

    I wanted to show you guys a pic of how beautiful the rings look. I love when you wear multiple rings on one finger but not too many like 2-4. This was one of my favorite purchases and cheap at $2.80



    These i bought at papaya not at forever 21. I had to pick up this skirt because I'm really into flower print and its one of the top spring trends and skirts are great for the hot weather. The top is a simple top for those days that i don't want to dress up and i want to keep it simple. i lied it because of the minty blue color.
    Prices: $9.99 (skirt)   $3.50 (top)

    I didn't want to post this pic because it is very bad quality but i wanted you guys to get an idea of what the color is. with flash the color would look washed out so i took it without flash. so i just bought two spaghetti strap shirts mint and peach color to put under other shirts. i really love these colors.
    Prices: $2.50 (mint)    $2.80 (peach)

    Thanks for reading =)

    EOS Lip Balm Review

    Today i am going to review the eos (evolution of smooth) lip balm in sweet mint. They have different colors and flavors but i chose this one because i love mint. Ive previously purchased the green one called honeysuckle honeydew but i can't show it because i lost it (actually my son "misplaced it" lol). So obviously what caught my attention was the sphere shape and at first it felt weird applying it but you get used to it. I have seen some people  apply it on both lips at the same time but i can't do that. It does have a flat bottom so it can stand alone.

    What the site (eos) says:

    •  Long-lasting moisture
    •  Shea butter & vitamin E
    •  Smoothes on clear
    •  New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips
    •  Twist-off top
    •  Gluten-free
    •  Paraben-free
    •  Petrolatum-free
    •  Phthalate-free

    "eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth." 

    Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*, Beeswax (Cire D'abeille)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Natural Flavor, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf/Stem Extract*, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract*, Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Fruit Extract*, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract*, Linalool1. 1Component of Natural Flavor. *Organic. Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth. Patent Pending.

    summer fruit (pink)
    lemon drop SPF 15 (yellow)
    honeysuckle honeydew (green)
    medicated tangerine (orange)
    sweet mint (mint/blue)

    When you apply this lip balm it does apply really smooth and because it is mint it does give you that minty/tingling feeling on your lips which i like but i know a lot of people dislike it, but not all the lip balms have it just this one. The smell is kinda minty and it has no particular taste (a lip balm taste i guess lol) .Some cons is that it doesn't provide long lasting moisture, its one of those lip balms that you have to constantly re-apply throughout the day which a lot of people do anyways, and it doesn't contain SPF which is very important during spring/summer, apparently only the lemon drop has the SPF. Another con some people might have is the actual shape because it is kinda bulky so it might be uncomfortable in your pocket but for me it's not a problem since i carry everything in my purse. To me its a regular lip balm, theres nothing special to it and its not great but its not expensive either(got mine for $3) so you can still try it. what i mainly liked is the shape because its unique but the product itself doesn't do wonders. I'm 50/50 on it

    Where to buy: Walgreens, Walmart, Rite aid, CVS, and Target.

    P.S- I'm sorry i do long reviews but i always want to make sure i cover everything and give u all the info and my honest opinion.

    My Free NYX Gift!!

    Hey so today i wanted to share with you guys my free gift that i received in the mail. First of all i want to let you guys know that i am not affiliated with nyx so they didn't send me this to review or for any business purpose. I received this for Easter..some are wondering what?! for Easter?! lol. Some people might know or might not know but on April 23- 24 NYX was having an Easter hunt on their website. The people who subscribed to their email news letter got the email for the egg hunt. So I got excited and i went to the website and i went crazy trying to find eggs and i found 3! so i wrote them an email telling them where i found the eggs and i only told them about two because i didn't know if there was a limit of one egg or not. well at first i thought my price was going to be an online coupon then the next day i got an email back asking for my address for my prize..and i got excited! but then i thought oh they're only going to send me a sample lol
     but i got happy when i saw that they sent me real size products and then i felt dumb lol. I'm guessing they sent me 2 prizes cause i found two eggs? so now i regret not putting down more eggs lol anyways i love my Prize, i got a trio eyeshadow palette in Hippie-chic and a black label lipstick in Debutante.

    I like these shades because they are light pastel colors that are nice for the spring season. All the colors are sheer.

    The 1st color is a shimmery white

    The 2nd color is seafoam blue/green

    The 3rd color is a pale lilac color

    The colors are nice although I'm not sure exactly how I'm going to work them but I'm sure ill figure it out, there are many looks i can create with these.

    I was very excited for this lipstick for two reasons. first because i don't own any of their black label lipstick which i have always wanted and second because I've been wanting to buy a coral lip color for spring. This lipstick shade is a peachy coral. I know it looks orange in the pic but in real life you can see the pink coral.
    The color is very sheer as you can see in the swatch so sadly it's not so opaque as id like but its still nice. It reminds more of a lipgloss so i think it would look nicer on top of another lipstick.
    but overall its nice to have.

    Thanks for reading! and once again i did not receive these products for reviewing purposes i received them as a price for the egg hunt which was really fun!
