Quick Update

Hello, beauty bloggers, I hope you guys are enjoying the end of your summer. As for me, I did and I am a bit sad to say that summer has ended for me but I do love the wheather lately. I haven't been blogging because my laptop broke down a week before school started, it's being fix but I think most likely, I will be buying a new laptop....sometimes this weekend. I'm undecided on what brand and which style to get. I'm definitely not getting hp, toshiba or the cheap brand. I also wanted a sony but I guess they are just famous for the name and their stuff aren't all that. Still debating and undecided so we will have to see. This week, I started school, I'm not use to it, I am getting into the habit but I have tons of homeworks to do and no beauty sleep at all. I'm tire and frustrated on my work so I haven't had the energy of blogging. If you're wondering what happen before my lap top broke down, well, we will just say that I was lazy and I didn't feel like blogging but I did have a lot to show you guys. Hopefully, I will get a lap top this week and blog some more if I get my english paper #2 done. Uck! But I guess english class was a class I enjoy.

Collective Haul

First of all, I like to say that I am on a budget for beauty products. I
feel like I have too much and need to use it up. I don't want to fork out
the bucks but not use it or touch'll just be sititng in my vanity drawer
for no good reason. These day I feel like no makeup products excite me
enough to the point that I will be desperate enough to buy it so I really am
not going through that makeup craze addiction, I was a few months ago. All
the products that I am showing in this blog are the ones that I got at the last
minute and it just happen so randomly that yes, I was in desepration that I had
to have it! I hope this explain the difference between wanting it and having it.
I don't plan to buy anything until Aug. 20 for the MAC makeup artist collection
and I think that'll be about it. As I need to use up what I have before buying more
to this massive collection...that somehow is driving me nuts because lately now I
can't decide which product to use since their is so much to choose from...
When I saw this at first sight, I knew I was going to take it and it was
going to be a brush holder! After seeing the glintzy glam brush holder
I was so envy of it and wanted one, but I don't think it's worth the bucks
on it....So I was just strolling around and this pink thing stand out on the shelf
more then anything else. Like seriously, it was calling my name..hahaha but
really it was and it was like, it was waiting for me to buy it. I grabbed it and knew
what it would be...the perfect brush holder ever! It's pink, it has a ribbon/decoration
on it and it's the perfect size..for my MAC brushes! So as you can see it's holding all
my MAC brushes! It's so cute and it looks pretty on my vanity!

I'm not sure if this pink is my favorite kind of pink but
it's a baby long as it's pink and cute I'll be taking
it home. Isn't it cute? I'm so happy I didn't order the glintzy
glam brush holder and I hold out for it but got this one instead!

I always check on this beauty site to see what they have and to see if they

have added any goodies to their site. I was cruising around and randomly

just looking and came across all these goodies. I'm so glad and excited that

I made this purchase because this is one of those haul that really makes you

jump out of your chair!

I got this stila set which contains all the award winners and

best sellers products! I'm pretty happy and excited to try all

of them out! Plus I didn't know that this was an ULTA exclusive

set which is why it's called the "ULTA"mate stila set...hahaha..

wasn't I a blondie for a moment?

People said that they love stila's packaging, for me it's not a to die for

or anything special. But to me what makes them different from other

brand is that their packing is always casual. Casual as in clothing and to

me, it's really unique and it stands out. Like not too much attention or too

little, just like when you're wearing clothes.

L-R from top to bottom: gologhtly, kitten, wheat and mystic

I love my nudes and brown so I gotta have these colors plus

as I stated earlier, I have been loving blue shadows. To me

this is like a teal blue but i haven't swatch it so I don't know yet.

But it's a pretty color just from the outside.

Top to Bottom: stila illuminating tinted moisturizer spf 15 in shade 1

and stila convertiable color in peony.

I really want to try their tinted mositurizer and see what all the rave

is all about. As you know, I already have this convertible color in peony.

I wish it was a different color but it's a pretty color it's just that I haven't

used up my other one. I might give this away to my sister because I know

she will love this product! I just do, know that she will like it a lot!

Smashbox eyeshadow in butter and pop mini ribbon gloss

in honeysuckle bronze.

I thought that this eyeshadow was going to be a champange color but

it came out a white frosty shadow with gold shimmers in it. The closet

MAC shadow would be nylon except you can't see the shimmer in it until

you actually apply it on, then you see all the shimmer. I thought it was

going to be a matte or satin shimmer because this thing can fool you for either

one of those style but really it's a shimmer. As for the gloss, it was my freebie

but I feel that the color aren't for me and aren't my favorite. I haven't swatch it

nor touch it so it might go up on ebay or I might test it out and see what I think

of it.

Smashbox O-glow, smashbox artificial light luminizer lotion in glow

and pop beauty cheeky cake in beach babe.

Don't you just love the design on this plastic bag? I do and it's so girly

girl! There are two products out of all the one I got that I'm most excited

about. O-glow is one of those product I have been eyeing and have been

dying to try it out, for a long, long time now but I can finally try it out and

see what my thoughts are on it! The other thing I'm happy about this product

is that I pay half or even less for this then I would have paid at retail or sephora!

Heheheh...the last product that I love and is in love with is the smashbox artificial

glow. As you all should know if you read my blog, that I have one of this and still do

but I feel like any day now I will run out of this product so I got me a back up. To get

that natural j-low glow and that luminious flawless look I find that this product does

the job and you don't even have to try hard....somehow this product just does the magic

and makes your face so glowy, flawless and perfect! yes, the word perfect should go out

to this product because it will deliver you with a perfect "fake" tan! I love it so much and

I haven't really love loving a product for a while as you should know. But this was my must

have product in May....I may post up a few photo from May when I went to the chicago zoo

and it will prove how flawless and glowing it makes your face looks!

Thanks to Cindy also known as pink is my favorite color on blogspot, was

having a blog sale and these are the things I got from her.

The three eyeshadow I got for a great price! I have swatch

beauty marked two times and it was a color that was undecideable

for me. I couldn't decide if I like it or hate was one of those odd

and hate it or love it feeling! At the time I was like euck, yuck! But after

seeing, don't know which guru it is now but I was like...I have to have it!

L-R: beauty mark, dear cupcake and sketch

Look what I got with my package? Stickers and a card, I don't know

if you notice but I love stickers and I have been collecting them ever

since I was little! Grown up but still lovin' it!

I got the NARS sin blush. When I swatch it, it's a berry/mauve

blush. To me, my first thought were that it looks dirty but some

how I feel that I can make it work.

I love the card she wrote me, it's so me and it's so cute!

Here's a closer view of it! Of everything!

So what are your collective haul from this week or any week, that

you have been hauling?

July Favorite's

For this month, I can definitely say that there are quite a lot
of things that I have been loving this month. I have tried out
many looks and tried out different ways and style of applying
makeup, no matter if it's eyeshadow, foundation or blush....any
thing that has to do with beauty and fashion, I would say this
month is the month that I can freely say that I have went out of
my comfort zone! Here goes....
  1. lip products: no matter if it's lipstick or glosses

I have been loving it a whole lot and been quite

addicting to them. My lips has never felt better

and so good! I have been playing with all of my lippies.

I have played it safe with nudes and pinks but other times

I have made a statement by wearing bright bold pinks

on my lips! I'm lovin' it!

2. I have been using my beauty blender a lot, a whole

lot this month. I would have to say probably the whole

month of July I have been using these baby instead of

my regular brushes. IDK but somehow I tend to grab these

blender over my brushes. I have to say I am pretty impress

with them and have been loving them since and quite seem

to not put them down and use my brushes?? But I guess I am

getting the money worth of these baby out...LOL

3. Out of all the pencil liner I own, I kept grabbing for my

urban decay 24/7 pencil in yeyo and zero. I haven't play that

much with the white one but I will say this, I have used it on

my water line throughout this whole month! One other thing is

that I have been sharpening my zero eyeliner pencil quiet a lot

this month and I have seem to notice that the length is shrinking.

Hahaha..I know I'm just using it way too often that's why it's


4. I have been so in love with the MUFE concealer palette in N1

but this month I have been trying out a new product and it's the

MAC moisturecover concealer in NC30. My overall impression of this

product is that it comes out heavily, if you don't want that much pro-

duct you will have to dap the wand lightly and gently on your under eye

area or else you'll definitely get a lot out of a tiny wand. I guess it is

good that such a small package comes with a lot of product in it so you're

basically getting your money worth of it!

5. Since I have been outside quiet a lot this month, I would most

definitely say that more then any of the last past month. I really

don't like the sun..hahaha...meaning that I hate getting tan and dark!

Yes, I don't tan nor do I like sunburn or getting dark just because you're

outside. I don't get sunburn obviously because thanks to sun block

but I do hate getting dark. I think I am dark enough to the point

where I don't want to be darker then this...With this to say I have

been loving lots and lots of sunscreen on my face and all over my

body where ever there is skin exposing to the sun.

6. The second favorite beauty product, of mine, for this month

is blue eyeshadow! Lately I have been loving the color blue

a lot. I have been wearing lots of blue clothes, shoes, nail

polish and of course, blue eyeshadow. This is my first time in

a long long time doing a blue look. I remember the last I did a

blue eyeshadow look was when I was a freshmen in high school.

I still think it's dramatic, not quiet my style and taste but if I keep

practicing I will get better and eventually I think I will look at least

decent in it. At the moment, I think it's too dramatic for me and some

how i feel that it makes a statement when I'm out in the city...we'll

have to see how it goes but I do plan to play with the blues I have

and do more blue look so I will update how I feel about blue eyeshadow.

7. I have not play with my paint pot a lot this month but I will

say that I have play with those shades that I forget playing with

and I must say, "I love them!"

8. My number one product that I kept grabbing and reaching for is

my mineralized skinfinish natural in medium plus! I have been loving

this product to set my foundation in or I use it alone on days that I

want less coverage. But one thing I have found out by wearing this

product is that even if you wear it alone, it gives a medium coverage

and if you want more you can build it up. But the one thing that I'm

so happy that I have played with this product again is that it looks

so natural, flawless and it looks like you're wearing a liquid foundation!

If a powder makes you look like you are wearing a liquid foundation on

then I must say, "that it's damn good and worth the money." I have read

a couple years ago how people just wear this mineralized skinfinish

alone and I was like, "why would they?" But now I have tried it out for myself

and I am so happy because this is my new has been awhile that

I have been excited about a product! I now can trust that never judge a

product by it's cover or look because you'll be amaze at the result!

8. I have been using refined golden bronzer the whole time this month

so I will say it is a favorite of mine but I don't know if it would count

as a July favorite since it has been in my other month's favorite.

9. I have been loving the new style of skirts. You know the one that

kinds of flare out, not those regular skirts that go straight down.

I will show a photo later if I have to. But I have been addicting to

these skirts and I have been loving them!

10. I have went out of my comfort zone and tried a new style. For me

I always like to dress either, fashion diva, adorable and cute. But for

this month I have gone for a more causal and sophisticated the

new trend you would see in the magazine like...seventeen, glamorous,

websites like forever 21 or wet seal. I'm usually a person who's afraid to

take risk in life and it's always hard for me to make a big decision. But I

have come to my senses that I need to loosen up and play around and

see what suits me and what doesn't. So I will be getting out of my comfort

zone and start trying out new things...

I think this is it for my july favorite. I did have alot on my mind

and to say about my july favorite but at the moment my mind

is wandering off and it seem to can't think any longer. I don't

have a particular favorite blush this month because I have been

playing with all of my blushes from higher end to drugstore brand.

I want to use up everything that I have and play around and see

what I am missing out on and which are really favorites of mine.

I guess next month, I will be doing this blog when my head tells me

to do it right then or else I will definitely lose some this one..

So what's your july favorite?
