ELF Mineral Shadows

Aren't these colors gorgeous? 

This is my first time buying ELF's mineral shadows.  I was skeptical about buying their mineral shadows because;

1. I'm not a huge fan of mineral shadows and
2. ELF's eyeshadow quality isn't the best

The two colors I ordered were Golden and Celebrity.  Golden is a truer gold eyeshadow, while Celebrity is a paler, beiger, more neutral gold.  Both of these eyeshadows are very sparkley. 

 I received my items a few days ago and upon opening the jar, I was very surprised.  For $3 dollars I received a good sized jar of product.  I was also pleasantly surprised that the eyeshadows are very pigmented. It's hard to tell in my photos if they are pigmented, but keep in mind I ordered 2 shades of gold. 

Although the colors are already very gorgeous, I found that using them wet or with a great primer allows the eyeshadow to be more vibrant.

This isn't a proper review because I haven't used this product enough, but I am very amazed at ELF's mineral shadow line.  I have been buying ELF off the ying-yang but when I do order again, I will make sure to add more mineral shadows to my cart. 

Celebrity Swatches
Celebrity is a more neutral gold

Golden Swatches
Golden is a truer golden bronze color (this one was hard to photograph)

Has anyone tried ELF's mineral shadow line? What are your thoughts?

Forever 21 Corset Top


Posted using ShareThis

Corsets are so hot.  I want this one really badly!!  It's so cute and has the sexy vintage vibe.  It's adorable but do you think it's almost a little too much?

I wouldn't pair this with any other frilly, or lacey item.  I would pair it with a simple bottom, so the outfit as a whole is not distracting...or fighting amongst itself for your attention. 

I'm holding off on purchasing this item...for now.

My friend Jeffy (aka Hizke) drew this Lucario.

Oh snap, son! It's Lucario.  This was so easy to do.  Involves just two colors and a basic "mask" or V shape.  I think the hat really helped "create" Lucario.  If it wasn't for the hat, I don't think it would've looked as good. 

I feel my channel is becoming more and more...dorky.  Haha.  It's all in good fun but it is also a bit embarrassing.  As long as you laugh with me and continue to be amazed at my inner dorkiness, it's all good :D

To create the look I used:
-Snazaroo face paint in black
-Detrivore BSoD eyeshadow
-NYX silver glitter eyeliner
-Mac stately black
-ELF black eyerliner
-Revlon colorstay lip liner red
-Mac So Scarlette lipstick
-Annabelle Blossom Blush

I have a love for Abreva...the medicine.  Is that weird? 

photo from here
I'm currently feeling under the weather and in my case, I often get cold sores with colds.  It's gross but it happens! Like anyone else, I hate cold sores.  It's tres terrible! I've tried a bunch of things prior to Abreva, but nothing has ever healed my cold sores so fast!

My mom is also very prone to cold sores and she also tried Abreva.  She was also very amazed with the medicine.  I bought it today and I'm hoping it works it's wonderful miracle on me again. 

The consistency of the ointment is kinda like...Neosporin.  However, it is not as thick as Neosporin.When I applied it to my lips I can "feel" it working.  At first it tingles for a bit but soon dies down.  This does not feel like a lip plumper at all! Don't be scared.  I know some people hate the feeling of plumpers.  This just tingles for a second or two and it's done.

It's an over the counter medicine, so you can find it just about anywhere.  The only thing that stinks about Abreva is the price.  It's pricey! The tube pictured above (the one I got) is around $16 dollars.  The small squeezey tube is about $14 dollars.

I hope this was helpful to someone.  Fight the cold sores!

Respect to the Original Queen of Fashion

Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette (Vogue) I created this in PSP

I have a sad fascination with Marie Antoinette.  I find her life so interesting and trajic.  Yes, she had a great life but in the end she was treated in a very cruel fashion.  France hated her from the moment she stepped foot in the royal palace.  It didn't help that she had a love for shopping and spending money.  It also didn't help that due to a past King, France had a huge debt. Due to her frivolous spending and little else, she was France's target of ridicule and hate.  You got to admit even for a Queen that's a bit too much too handle.  It's not her fault Louis XIV went "haul" crazy!

My vision was to create a look that would incorporate a Marie Antoinette vibe without going all out in period make-up.  If she were still around, I would assume she would be a Pop Princess.  I used colors that reminded me of her and placed lots of blush.  I'm pretty content with the finished result.  Although I think I should've done bright pink lips instead of berry ones.  Oh well!

A Case of the...sickness.

I am not feeling 100% today.  I hate waking up and finding my throat very scraggly and raw.  It's terrible.  I also hate the pain of pulling a muscle.  I pull muscles ALL the time.  I am the saddest girl you have ever met.  Use to be very active but over the recent years I have stopped.  Occasionally I will do something silly (like say do 2 push ups) and I'm sore for days.  Yes, it's true.  You can laugh at me, I do. 

Time for tea.

Detrivore Cosmetics Haul

I got some goodies in today! Yay! I've been on a matte kick.  I "need" more matte shadows to add to my collection.  I ordered from Detrivore Cosmetics mainly to try something new, and because of their unbelievable price.  Plus, I like to support small businesses rather than big corporate ones. 

I received the items in perfect condition.  Each eyeshadow was individually wrapped.  Shipping was pretty fast and it was free!  I didn't pay a dime for shipping. Yay! 

The full sized jars I purchased. 

I only purchased 1 sample baggie, but look at all the extra samples I got (I forgot Nameless in this photo)

Swatches with Too Faced Shadow Insurance

My favorite colors thus far are Dagon and Mildew.  They are super gorgeous.  I'm a sucker for rich true purples and sea-foam colors.  I'm super excited to play with my new eyeshadows.

I will be doing a review shortly, but I wanted to update you on new makeup. 

P.S. I think I figured what "BSoD" means Blue Screen of Death.  My friend reminded me what it was.  Yah know when you get that horrible blue screen and your computer...dies?  If you haven't seen it, that's a good thing.  I have and it was tres sad.

ELF is watching and YT Guru advertising

Last week I did a video on "A Guide to ELF" the video was about what items I would recommend from  I was brutally honest and in one clip of the video, I even said "the rest of the brushes stink."  I was referring to the dollar line brushes.  I'm still content with the video and everything I said...I was just super suprised that ELF themselves contacted me!  SAY WHAT? They were happy with my review and looked forward to seeing another.  They even gave me a $5 dollar "gift card" as a thank you. 

This may not seem that big to you but to me it's HUUUGE! ELF saw my video! It's so unbelievable.  I didn't make my video for them, or intend to have them as my audience but getting their attention is pretty cool. 

Although I was given some ELF cash, it doesn't mean I will become their video slave.  Don't worry, my opinion and thoughts will always remain true.  Unless I get bought out for 5 billion dollars.  I don't think I see that happening...ever.  haha.

On a more honest note.  I know there is a lot of "hush hush" talk with gurus on YouTube that are sent items or paid, from companies.  I don't think it's a big deal unless you are recommending something terrible or just plain lying.  If you think about it...that's how commercials and advertisements work.  Celebrities do it, all the time.  Most people don't even think twice about a product when celebrity endorsement is involved.  I think YouTube advertising is great, it's free for most companies and it really gets their name out.  Plus, we as consumers find out about great companies.  It's pretty much a win-win. 

Some people get really mad at YouTube Gurus for promoting certain brands or companies.  Personally, I'm okay with it.  I think it's a bit annoying if that ALL they do in their videos.  Many people also hold the gurus responsible if their product doesn't work out.  I just want to simply state that free will is a powerful tool.  The guru's did not twist your arm, and demand that you buy that product.  That was all free will!  It's also important to note that everyone has a personal taste and preference.  Just because you like the color pink, doesn't mean I will like the color pink.  It's a simple human concept. 

What are you throughts on YouTube advertising and guru promotions?

I went to my cousin's confirmation on Saturday.  It was way too long. It was long and it was torture to endure.  The Bishop decided to preach about abortions, sex, and pornography.  Really?  Is this the place to do it?  I was getting kinda upset but apparently the Bishop at my confirmation told us to have unprotected sex.  *shrugs* I really don't understand...
I took a few photographs but my camera is slowing all my pics kinda stink. 

Note the stockings.
Above is my cousin, Joao and my nephew Evan.

My sister was his sponsor. 
My bangs look like they died on my head.

I feel so very short.  He's 13 and almost my height. 

My cousins (his parents) told me, I resemble my grandfather and my sister my grandmother.  I feel that is the worst "compliment" or resemblance one can have.  Thank You?

Mac, I am mad at you!

Photos from temptalia
Baroque Boudoir Collection

I am so upset with Mac! This collection is to die for.  It's so me! I love the packaging and the colors and everything.  I was already swearing to save $20 bucks just to buy one item when I realized they are selling their lipsticks for $22 dollars!! WHAT? Did I miss something or did the price go up?  What happened to $14.50?  I don't care if it's a special collection or not, this is just a plain rip off.  I can't believe it.  The sad thing is that tons of girls will not think twice about spending that amount. 

Am I the only sane girl who believes $14 dollars for a lipstick/lipglass is too much?

Addiction to Glamour and Cuteness

I adore vintagey/glamour packaging. Of couse I would love Too Faced's new collection
Too Faced collection "French and Fabulous."  french & fab I'm a sucker for anything related to Marie Antoinette.  I think that's who they based the collection off.  The packaging is gorgeous.  The makeup itself is also cute but I have colors already similar so I won't be least not full price.  This palette retails for $28.50 which is a bit too much for my poor butt.  Damn, Too Faced and their regal prices.

New makeup!

I've been eye-ing some mineral makeup websites lately.  I really want some new makeup but when I reach into my pockets...little flies come out.  Kinda like those cartoons. Yeah, Je suis tres poor.  What is poor in french? Pauvre? suis tres pauvre.  Quel Domage! I can't believe I remember this much french. 

Back to topic: I was surfing Ashley's YT Channel when I found her video on Detrivore Cosmetics.  I fell in love! The colors were beautiful and best of all the price was up my alley! Lexy approves: $3.00 eyeshadows. Yaaaaaaaaay!  Did I mention that I also received free shipping?  Free shipping without any codes? I am in heaven at the moment.
I ordered 7 full eyeshadows and one sample.  I'm very happy and I hope to be even happier when my items arrive.  I'll update you when my stuff arrives to it's anxious owner. The link is below if you are interested.

Avon Dress--Take a shine on me dress!

I bought this dress off Ebay.  It's originally from Avon's Mark line.  I fell in love with it a few months back.  I was going to wait for it to go on sale but..I gave up.  I searched ebay and found it 50% off.  The item I receive is in excellent condition and I adore the item.  It's white and VERY sparkley.  It has a gold print.  It's a chic white dress that is ideal for summer.  I love the dress, I'm just kicking myself for not getting it earlier.  Now, I'll have to wait until Spring to wear it.  Darn this coldness. 


I gave Spotty a bath today.  He was a very good kitty but I think he was very upset about the he decided to lay on my jean drawer.  He hasn't done this since he was a young kittty.  Thanks I have to use the lint roller on all my pants. 

Yes, those are corduroy pants in the photo...I still wear them! Why do people on hate on corduroy?  It's comfy and warm in the winter. 

On a more random note, I bought daylight light bulbs today at Target.  They are so...weird.  The lighting they omitt is cooler and blue-er.  It's not as yellowish as normal bulbs.  Who knew that a change in bulbs would make such a difference?  I placed them in my bedbroom and they really lightened the room up.  I think they will be better for tutorials too.  Now I won't have to be a reverse-vampire and film only when the sun is out. 

ChinaFierce's Carnival Contest Entry

Carnival is such a naught time.  It's a time to get your wild and naughty streak out of your system before Lent starts. Looking at the Brazilian Carnival and then the Portuguese Carnival...makes me feel really lame. I just don't think the Portuguese Carnival is even close to being called wild.  I guess that's a good thing :D
As a kid I remember pulling pranks during Carnival and dressing up as a clown.  How wild is that?  Then again, I was only a kid.  I wasn't suppose to be going crazy. 

While looking through Carnival photos I had to filter through lots of body parts.  Haha.  Speaking of which, I don't think I could ever dance in the middle of the street in a sparkly thong.  Even with "the perfect body" I don't think I have it in me, to dance with my jiggly bits hanging out.

I AM....Robin HOOD!

This past Sunday I went to the Rennaisance festival.  I love Renn fest!  I've been going since I was 16 years old, and every year since then it has been a blast.  I'm a fan of anything "historical" so of course, I would love the renn rest.  The first year at the festival I fell in love with the magical environment, the costumes, the shows, well...just about everything. 

However, it was only until last year that I decided to dress up in costume.  I really wanted to save up for a fancy costume but those cost around $200-500+.  So I settled on being part of the "low class" costumes. Haha. 

My friend Jeff and I were both Robin Hood.  I was the cooler one though :D

This is an awkward photo. lol. 

Speaking of awkward...there are sooo many boobs at the renn fest.  That's so weird to say, but there is sooo much CLEVAGE.  Women put their goods on display.  They even tuck money in between the goods.  It's hilarious!

Have you noticed? Everyone is going bat shit crazy over Alice in wonderland. There is a huge hype over it. I'm not hating on Alice, I just find it amusing.

So to add to this Alice hype I want to introduce "Looking Glass Wars" by Frank Beddor. It's a book about Alice in Wonderland...but not the same story. This book offers a different and creative view on the beloved story.

"The Looking Glass Wars is a novel written by Frank Beddor. Inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, it claims that those two books were nothing but lies and that this is the true story. It features twists on the original story, such as the white rabbit
actually being Alyss's (Alice's) tutor, Bibwit Harte, and that the Mad
Hatter is actually a very agile, sober bodyguard named Hatter
Madigan"--Taken from Wiki

My plot:

Alice is a princess in Wonderland. Redd,
her aunt wants to take over the land. Alice flees the land and ends up on
on our world. In our world, everyone believes she is crazy because of her
Wonderland stories. Everyone besides....the reverend. He writes a
book based on her travels. Alice realizes he has distorted her story and
she gets very angry. Wonderland there is a revolution

There is sooo much more going on but..I would be giving away the story.

I have never read/watched Alice but I know enough about the plot to find this book interesting. It's an easy and fun read. This book will keep you hanging and wanting to know more. I'm very happy to have found it. So jump on the Alice bandwagon and read this book!

Mermaid Eyes

Once when I was little I dreamed of being a mermaid. How awesome would that be? Splashing around, swimming, brushing your hair with a fork. Wait. That's the little mermaid. Mermaids would have to be my other favorite mythical creature..aside from fairies. This look is so precious and girly. This was a very fun, colorful eyeshadow look.
stuff used:
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • NYX Eyeshadow pencil in purple
  • 88 pallette
  • UD 24/7 eyeliner in electric
  • ELF eyeliner black
  • Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara
  • ELF Facial whip
  • Avon looking glass lilac lipstick
  • Mac lipglass in fast friends
  • ELF lashes
  • Snazarro paints for seashell

Daisy Mouse Soap

(Lavender Vanilla, Oatmeal, Milk & Honey, Lavender Vanilla, Pear w/ Calendula Petals, Angels Wings)

I recently purchased some soaps from this company. I am completely, madly in love with their Oatmeal, milk, and honey soap. I don't even like the smell of honey and I'm in love with this soap. It's such a seductive scent, it lingers, and it just a tad bit sweet. It's the perfect blend.
It lathers very nicely, and I think it's a decent size soap. This soap exfoliates but it's not rough on your skin. It's pretty gentle. I like that it has just the right amount oatmeal. Unlike other exfoliating soaps packed with things such as oatmeal or porridge, this soap won't create a mess in the tub. As I mentioned, it has the right amount of oatmeal.

The owner uses many different oils in her soaps. She uses olive oil, palm oil, castor oil, coconut oil, rice brain oil, and shea butter. All of which have great benefits for your skin. For more information regarding the oils & ingredients visit the owner's website.
I'm also very proud to have found this soap IN PERSON! I was visiting a small town in MD when I stumbled upon this wonderful scented soap in a book store. How random.

My description of the scents:
Lavender & Vanilla--obviously it smells like these 2 scents. It's a great blend. It's sweet but not so sweet, that it's obnoxious. Very soothing.

Oatmeal... --Smells seductive. You can trace the honey & milk. It's very suave, refreshing and calming.
Pear.. -- You can trace the freshness of the fruit in this soap. If you like Pear this is for you.
Angel Wings - Girly, floral scent.

Overall thoughts:
Soaps are a decent price. They are well made with great ingredients.
I will be buying more soap from this company. Their Oatmeal, Milk & Honey stole my heart.

Simple Fairy Look

I absolutely love fairies. I realize now that I forgot an essential item in this look. GLITTER! How did it slip my mind? It's a crime to forget glitter.

This is by far the easiest way to be a fairy for Halloween. It involves just 2 colors for the eyeshadow, and a few swirls on the face.

If you are interested I used:
  • Mac bare canvas paint
  • Nyx strawberry milk e/s pencil
  • L'oreal Hip e/s in Fiery
  • BFTE e/s Grape
  • 88 palette (red, white shimmer, pinkish shimmer)
  • Revlon Liquid Eyeliner pen
  • ELF black eyeliner
  • Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara
  • Nyx lipstick in Eros
  • Visine
  • Stencil

As you can see I loooove dressing up as a fairy. They are my favorite mythical creature. What is your favorite mythical creature?
