Edgy Look

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope that everyone is having a great start to the weekend! I wanted to share a quick edgy look. It’s pretty different for me, but giving yourself a new look is fun!

I used my BareMinerals Matte Foundation in Medium Tan and then covered up my dark eye circles with my Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. Then for my eyes, I used the NYX Natural Palete.

NYX NaturalFirst, I applied the light brown color, third from the right. Then, I just took little bits of the darkest color and patted it onto my eyelids. I didn’t brush it in, because I didn’t want the color to be too harsh. I was going for a soft dark look. Then, to give more of an edge I used my Wet N’ Wild Mega Liner to give a winged look. After that, I used the white color, all the way on the left to highlight my upper brow To finish the look off, I used the NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Chaos and blotted it out a little, and there you go!

Let me know if you guys like this look! Have a great weekend!

L’oreal: Eye Shadow Quad in Good Luck Charm

Hello!

I’m not usually a fan of eye shadow quads, but when I saw the rose gold/pink color in this quad, I had to try it out! This is the L’oreal Paris Colour Riche in Good Luck Charm (103).

The colors are really nice! My only problem is that they’re very loose and powdery. As you can see in the picture above, the shadow powder is all around on the case. My favorite colors in this quad are the top pink/rose gold shadow and the highlight at the bottom. The middle two browns didn’t show up too well on me because my skin is too dark. But after a bit of blending I managed to get a nice rose gold look. Guys, I’ve been obsessed with rose gold! It’s so pretty!

I used my Clinique Superprimer in the shade Universal Face Primer (I know weird name), and the shadow stayed on without creasing for about four hours. Pretty good for a cheap drugstore quad, it was about $8 at Ulta. I also added a wing with my Wet N Wild Liquid Mega Liner, and just added some of the dark brown shadow to soften it up.

YesStyle Mini-Haul

Hello there!

I had ordered three items from YesStyle in February and I finally got them! So without further ado, here’s what I got.

Pompom-Accent Patterned Hooded Top:

Pom-Pom Hoodie

I really love this! It’s in the color “Honey”, from Tokyo Fashion. It’s actually really thin for a hoodie, but the actual hood is lined with fleece. It’s one of the softest hoodies I’ve ever felt! Also, I love the huge pom-poms! The only thing I hadn’t expected was that it was going to be a v-neck. It’s just unusually low for a hoodie, so I would recommend a tank top underneath. But overall, I really like this one!

Crochet-Collar Sweater:

swear

I was looking forward to this piece the most and was extremely disappointed! From the look of the pictures the website used, the peter pan collar looked like it was sewn on the sweater, but only the top is. The bottom of the collar isn’t attached and it looks like you hurriedly sew a doily on your sweater.

IMG_1756Also, the neckline’s seam are messed up. It looks really bad when you put it on. This item was a fail for me and I’m going to return it.

Inset-Shirt Cat Embroidered Sweater:

INset
This one is my favorite out of the three! I was actually surprised because I had decided to take a risk on it. From the pictures the website had of it, I thought that it was going to really big, but it fit perfectly! The material looks thick, but it’s not at all. The “sweater” part of it, is really thin, so I can wear it during cold spring/rainy days. Very happy with this purchase! The store I got it from is Fairyland, but they ran out of this specific one! Sorry guys, but they have a lot of similar looking ones!

For those of you who don’t know what YesStyle is, it’s an Asian clothing website. From what I understand, it features many popular stores and fashion from China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, etc. There are so many stores on this website, I couldn’t go through them all! Some stores are high quality, others are low. When you click on an item, it’ll have a tab that says reviews. People who already bought the item leave reviews and let other people know what the product is really like. The reviews are extremely helpful!

One downside to YesStyle, is that because it is an Asian specific clothing store, the sizes run quite small. There are some that are the usual S,M,L,XL, but the majority of stores I came across all say “one size”. If you’re short, I would recemond you try this out! If you’re taller than about 5’4, I would suggest by only a couple items and see how they fit before you buy a bunch. I only bought the three items because I wanted to gauge how well they fit. I’m 5’1 and they were all quite long on me, so they may work for taller people. Let me know what you guys think!

Review: Freeman Feeling Beautiful Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask

Hello lovelies!

So I wanted to share one of my favorite masks. It’s the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask. I love it! When I peel it off, I can feel all of the dirt and oil leaving my face, and I can see it on the mask. It gives that satisfactory feeling you get when you pull off a pore strip.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful: Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask

The only con I have about it, is putting it on. The product is extremely messy, sticky, and drips everywhere. Be sure to get your hair out of the way, and apply the mask preferably over the sink. Also, while you’re waiting for it to dry, put a towel on. I know that sounds weird, but think of it like a bib. The mask drips in different places, and I learned that setting a towel on me, while I’m sitting down helps my clothes from getting ruined. The instructions say to wait about 5 to 10 minutes for it to dry, but for me it take about 20. To each their own I guess.

Also, it’s super affordable, which is always good. I usually get mine at CVS. The tube in the picture is about $4.29, and the sample is $2.  But overall, this mask is awesome!

Let me know if you’ve tried it or what your favorite mask is! Also, check out my number one mask: Avocado and Oatmeal Masque.

Cattiva: Mineral Foundation

I love everything I got and can’t wait to try them out! I think I’m most excited for the Cattiva Mineral Foundation and the Bodyography Nail Lacquer, but the others are amazing as well!

For those of you who don’t know what Wantable is, it’s a subscription box, where you pay $36 a month. It is expensive, but they send you a variety of full sized products, all ranging in different prices. I paid $36 and got a box worth $99.50! Also, if you don’t want to pay for any reason, you can either skip a month or just cancel the subscription. If you want to just try it one time, not monthly, it’s $40.

Let me know what you guys think and if you’ve tried any of these products!
