Mask As A Spot Treatment!?

That's right....the title is true! :D I was looking up other people's reaction to the Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask and someone had sumitted the topic of using it as a spot treatment! Hey, what did I have lose? So here's a pimple that just occured...
Spot treatment...
You're supposed to leave it on overnight...

Sorry for the super upclose pictures of my cheek. Hahaaa just thought it would help illustrate how well it works! Try it and let me know how it goes!(:

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Gunmetal

I starting to love Sally Hansen! I'm too lazy at the moment to dig out my camera but here's some webcam pictures!(=
Here's my Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear collection...I know pretty small but I've been seeing swatches of more colors and I'm sure I'm out to get more soon!(=

This one's called Gunmetal and this is just from ONE coat! Pretty nice quality right? Ahem for nail polishes like this! No time to mess with a nail polish that needs two coats? Sally Hansen is your girl!(;

Am I exaggerating? Or does anyone else agree with my opinion of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish?(=

PS: Sorry for the obnoxious kissy face pictures! Its the only face I can make without seeming like a total chipmunk....wisdom teeth! Ackk.

Shame on me!

I'veee been a bad blogger =( I'm sorry! Its been a tough junior I know why people were complaining! Hahahaa but I PROMISE I'll be more consistent in my blogging! But here's an update if you were curious. I just got my wisdom teeth pulled a day ago. All 4! =( And yes, I do in fact look like a chipmunk hahahaa. Also this sunday is going to be my 16th birthday!(= Too bad I completely lagged on my permit and license/= Eeek, I realize now that I lag on quite a lot of things....blogging...and my license. But I am trying to change! Hahahaa
Okay so back to blogging! Look forward to some more posts this weekend!(=

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque Review

Since I'm sure everyone has heard of this mask, I'm just gonna post the before and after pictures. I feel like seeing is believing for this mask(;

EWWW (before)
Can you see all those gross blocked pores?!? =(

After about 15 minutes...All those dots are my BIG pores.
After! Can you see the difference?
Very subtle but the results make me always come back to this mask(=
Have you tried the Mint Julep Masque?

Dollar Tree & Target Haul!

Yes, my blog is currently messed up. Anyone know how to add the whole home, next, back buttons on the blog? Please help! Thanks(=

OKAY so anyways, I ran errands this weekend and of course had to buy some makeup(; First, DOLLAR TREE. Yayyy, I love me a discount.
Found two L.A. Colors Color Craze nail polishes. In Static Electricity(blue) and Fire(silver).

I also picked up Maybelline's Cool Effect Eyeliner in Winter Green for a dollar! Yumm(; I've been interested in color eyeliner for a while now. Also at Target I picked up three other color eyeliners.
(Left to Right-Milani: Mediterranean Blue, Rimmel: Purple Passion, Rimmel: Jungle Green, Maybelline: Winter Green)

Would you guys like to see a look with colored eyeliner?(=

Montagne Jeunesse Spa Facial Face Tonic

This is one of those sheet masks. Its supposed to "calm and sooth the skin, lifts the spirit". And heck, it does! Hahahaa(; When I first put this on, it began to tingle. Almost to the point of pain but ALMOST! So its all good.(= My skin felt so smooth after! My clogged pores looked a lot less "clogged". The only thing that bothered me was the smell. Other people may like it but it was way to flowery for me. Ugh. I have one more of the mask but I probably won't re-buy it. But I'm down to try other masks from this line!(=
The mask has this cool water ripple print on it! Totally attractive like this right? Trying to do a "sexy winking, kissy face". Again, TRYING. Hahahaa(;

I'm curious, what are your favorite sheet masks?

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Rockstar Pink

So I got sick over the week and guess what that hospital! =D Of course I ran over to my nail polishes and picked out a color that isn't considered "neutral" Hehehee. The hospital will never know! (; This is a gorgeous glitter nail polish. One of my firsts actually? You can layer this over black or just a clear coat! The wear on this polish is amazing, its been a week and half and no wearing at the tips! The texture is a bit gritty so be sure to wear a top coat!(=

Bronzer Collection!

WEEE finally I finished all the pictures! =D So anyways....about bronzers! No reason why but to me, they're probably to easiest thing to buy in makeup. Because they're cheap? No/= BUT because you can hardly go wrong with buying the wrong shade or something. Or maybe that just
to me? Hahahaa(;
Oh! And WARNING: Picture Heavy!
I thought that if I was doing a bronzer collection, I might as well do the whole shebang with swatches and all(=
So in total I have 8 bronzers and for the individual shots, I'll go clockwise. Capese? And no, I don't know how to spell that. Hahahaa(;

Avon Smooth Minerals Foundation-Pure Beige
I know what you're thinking: "Um, this girl has no clue what the difference between foundation and bronzer is! Why am I even reading her crazy blog!?" Hahahaa well no, I actually do know what the difference is. It just had happened that I got the wrong shade for foundation in a swap so, I just decided to use it as a bronzer. And not too bad I'd have to say! This "bronzer" has just a hint of sparkles that make my face look a bit skinnier. Which, who wouldn't like that!?(;
Napoleon Perdis-French Riviera Bronzer
Got this in a swap! But
I haven't got to try it yet. If anyone wants a review, let me know?(= Although it looks a tad orange....kinda intimidated?
Stila Sun Bronzing Powder-Shade 2
Pretty much my first bronzer ever! =D Love this, works for my skin tone! Maybe its just clumsy me, but it keeps breaking? Anyways, it was part of a kit, might be discontinued?/=
Cargo Medium Bronzer
New fave bronzer! Has a beautiful sheen NOT shimmer. Which is the best part! Hahahaa Got it for 50% off at Sephora cause they no longer stock it there. But I believe you can find it in Ulta? But its such a big size I doubt I'll run out(;
Cargo Medium Matte Bronzer
Yup! Two cargo bronzers...I could'nt resist(; This one is a bit too light for me in the summer so I'll probably use this to contour in the winter!(=
NYX Mosaic Powder-Latte
I just got this in a swap but it seems a little dirty for my skin tone. Maybe I'll try it again later?(;
N.Y.C. Bronzing Face Powder-Sunny
Cheap stuff! Pretty good if you ask me! It doesn't really have the best pigmentation but it still is a nice color!
E.L.F. Warm Bronzer
Another cheap bronzer! All shimmery and so pretty! This has been in the back of my collection...I've missed you!(;

Any reviews on the bronzers?(;
What's your favorite bronzer?

Broken Makeup....Again =(

Hello! So I broke my Stila Bronzer again. -___- I know, clums
y me. I didn't even realize it was broken! Hahahaa, so I was planning on doing a Bronzer Collection post but as I gathered all my bronzers, I realized that my Stila one broke AGAIN?! Darn, so whoever was excited for a bronzer collection, you're gonna have to wait another day/=
Well, if there was anyone...Hahaa So anyways, I fixed my bronzer!
Drumroll pleasee(=.....FROM THIS
Look at the mess I made....
Ewwwwwwww I know. =P
Yayyy! Success(=
Heres the site where I got the instructions:
Tip: Use a spoon to smooth it out while its still wet! And a q-tip to clean up around the edges when you're done(=

I'm back! And quick question?

Finally back from Costa Rica! Miss me much?(;

Okay so I'll start posting again! But before that, quick question time!
Is it okay to combine your shampoos? Is it okay to combine your conditioners?
Because I have all these separate shampoo and conditioner samples and I have a feeling I'm too lazy to go through and open them all every time I take a shower. Hahahaha lazy? Of course. So I was thinking of just combining the shampoos in one bottle and conditioners in one. But is that okay?

Someone help! These samples need a home.(=

OPI: Makes Men Blush

Heheheee 2 posts in a row! I'm proud of myself for not slacking.(= But I should warn my readers out there. I'm leaving for Costa Rica tomorrow, but no worries I'll be back in one week! =D So without any ado, here's the NOTD!

And since I'm volunteering at a hospital every week, I have to make sure my nails are neutral. But it doesn't bother me that much cause I've been digging neutrals(; This nailpolish took 3 coats to achieve the same color of the bottle. First coat is kind of sheer but fret not! It's all good after a couple more coats. There's also a really cool iridescent look about the polish too(=

Quick question: How do you (a fellow blogger) take pictures of your NOTD? Cause my pictures always turn out kind of creepy, with fingers coming out of nowhere. Hahahaa help!

OOTD: Outfit of Yesterday?

Again, my bad. I've been MIA./= But schools out! And I promise to keep posting(;
So today's post is called OOTD but I'm technically was from yesterday. Hahaha I know, FAIL.(=
It was my friend's suprise birthday party and it was semi-formal. I had no dress to wear so I pulled out this dress I never wore because of the fact it was too short and added a pencil skirt. And WALA! Semi-formal outfit =D

Here's a close up of the minidress/top.

Top: Random boutique. Sorry!

Pencil Skirt: H&M

Sorry no jewerly, I figured that the top had enough detail.

So what do you think? Should I keep doing these kinds of posts? Give me some feedback! (Please) Hahahaa(;

Covergirl Bzzkit!

I know I've been gone for so long, but I just thought I should let you know about the Covergirl Bzzkit I got about a few days ago. Bzzagent is a online site where they send you free samples/coupons to give to friends and family. And Bzzagents as well get free products. The purpose of Bzzagent is the whole word of mouth. And I can assure that I am not getting paid or compensated for doing this review. I understand that there's lots of controversy about the whole issue for other bloggers/youtubers.

Smokey Shadow Blast in Silver Sky
And Shine Blast in Flare!
In most Bzzkits, you receive a letter, product, and a pamphlet about the brand.

(Quick review: Creases without primer, Lovely complementary colors.)
Anyone planning on picking up these Covergirl products?

Burt's Bee Collection

Okay, so I am taking the idea from What a great idea! This post is pretty much gonna be a quick review of the Burt's Bee products I have.
Here's the collection!
Garden Tomato Toner: my second buy of this product! Acts like a toner supposed to be, a bit hard to find and kind of pricey. But I'm sticking to this as my toner!

Purifying Gel Cleanser: Okay so I think I should get this out first. Yes I recieved this product for free by Bzzagent and no, this doesn't affect my reviewing at all! So anyways, this is just a basic cleanser. Did nothing for my acne but hey, everyone's skin is different! In my opinion, this cleanser is a bit on the pricey side. But then again all of the Burt's Bee line is pricey.
Beeswax Lip Balm: FAVORITE LIP BALM! Love the minty tingle, waxyness of the balm. I'm sure everyone's heard of this!
Lip Shimmer in Peony: Okay so the blogger that I got this idea from didn't like this product at all. But I would have to disagree. This shade gives me natural shimmer and a hint of color. Out of 2982305982 pictures, this is the swatch that doesn't look to creepy. Hahha You can even see a hint of my braces! /=
Sun Protecting Lip Balm Spf 8: I had big hopes for this lipbalm! Passionfruit with spf 8!? Yes please! But no, this chapstick just has to rain on my parade and gives a white cast on my lips =(
Anyone have anything else to recommend?
