Easy Hello Kitty Halloween Costume!

Happy Halloween everyone!! I LOVE dressing up for Halloween! It's the one day a year you can look like a complete freak and get away with it ;) Here is my Hello Kitty inspired costume, which I'm wearing to uni today :)

The flowers are from Forever 21, and the maxi skirt is from a local boutique.
I made the shirt myself using an old t-shirt I no longer wore and fabric pens.  I simply printed a picture of Hello Kitty, taped it between the shirt and traced :)

The flats I'm wearing are from Ardene.
Products used:
Rimmel Vinyl Max One Stroke Maxi Shine lipgloss in "Legend",
Rimmel lipstick in "Socking Pink",
Maybelline Line'Express eyeliner in "Black".

I was so impressed with this lipstick! I bought it a few years ago and
never had the guts to wear it.  It's super pigmented and smells like candy! 
Will you be dressing up today?? Thanks for reading!! xo

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Review!!

Hi loves!  I've seen ads everywhere for the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain so of course I had to give it a try :)  The "crayon" style pencil is so fun to use!  I decided to purchase a nude shade, since I'm not very adventurous in my lip color choices. 

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in "Precious"

Unfortunately, this shade is very similar to my skin color!! If you try really hard
you can see some shimmer where the red arow is pointed :)

I really enjoyed this product.  The application was so easy! This balm glides on really well and had a slightly shimmery finish.

Have you tried this Balm Stain yet?  Thanks for reading!! xo

Simple Peach and Blue Eyeshadow :)

Hi everyone! Here is a simple eyeshadow look I wore a little while ago. I was in the mood for bright colors so I decided to try something different. Hope you enjoy :)

I was inspired by my tank top :3

I used my Sephora Blockbuster 2010 palette :)  It's a little dusty, sorry about that!

I used this Eye Definer from the Body Shop in "Brilliant Blue" for my lower lash line :)

Thanks for reading! xo

Avon Eyeshadow Duet Review

Hi loves :)  I recently made a HUGE Avon order, so I thought I'd review a few of the products I purchased for you.  First up is the Avon Eyeshadow Duet in "Black Violet". 


The Eyeshadow Duet is a cream eyeshadow stick combo. Avon had many other colors to chose from, including a nude duet and a khaki/green duet. The eyeshadow is fairly pigmented as you can see from my swatch.
Unfortunately, I do not reccomend this product. It was very hard to work with. Many cream eyeshadows I've tried have been "wet" during the application process but dry a few minutes later. This product never dried! I tried applying eyeshadow over it to set it, but the eyeshadow became clumped and impossible to blend. It took me ages to get this very simple look, and lasted for less than 2 hours before creasing! It was a mess.  I was quite surprised by the poor quality of this product; Avon usually has excellent makeup! I love their Glimmerstick waterproof eyeliners and their  Glazewear lipglosses.  If you have never tried Avon makeup before, you are missing out!! Just don't buy this product.
Thanks for reading!! xo

September: What I've Been Up To!! :)

Hi everyone! As you probably noticed by the lack of posts, I've been quite busy this past month!! Uni is back in full swing so readings and studying have been taking up most of my time.  However, I do have a few NOTDs to share with you :)

I absolutely had to try the new Sally Hansen Magnetic nail polish!!
I decided to try it in a fall shade, "Gold Conduct".
The other nail polish is NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel in "Purple Pizzazz".

Here is Borghese Nail Lacquer in "Espresso Brown".
I love fall nail colors!! :)

Here is Avon Speed Dry Nail Enamel in "Don't Be Jaded", and
Essence Color And Go Fast Drying Nail Polish in "Choose Me".
These aren't really fall colors but I bought the Avon polish recently and I HAD to try it!!
I really love how sparkly this Essence polish is!! It can look blue or green
depending on how the light hits it :)

I picked up this Maybelline EyeStudio Palette in "Caffeine Rush" on impulse
 at the drugstore.  I heard many other bloggers/youtubers rave about Maybelline
eyeshadows so I really wanted to join in on the fun!! These shadows are super
pigmented and I love the name of the palette ;)

I've been studying at Starbucks a lot!! I go with a friend and we stay for hours
at a time.  The staff don't mind as long as we keep buying drinks.  They also
gave us MANY samples.  How adorable is this mini cup? :)
Thanks for reading!! Hope you had a nice September! xx
