Pink/Gold Look

I have a black and orange halloween look as well that I did a week or so ago that I will upload as well. I'll add products used a little more of a description later. I need to some how complete a take home exam and it's midnight. Ugh. Just saw a preview for "In Time". It looks soooooo good! Finally a movie with such a different plot and an interesting idea/thought. Makes you contemplate what life would actually be like if you knew how long you had left and you had to pay for everything with time.

ULTA Eye Crayon - Quick, Quick Review

Not so much a review, but for now the thoughts I had on his product. I haven't figured out how I am going to do these reviews and what sort of rating system, so just my thoughts while I put off studying for a lit. exam.

Link to the product online: 

I got the color Fairy Tale which is just SUPER amazing. I love color shifting makeup and this is just that. It's this gorgeous bright, light to medium pink that in the light is peachy-orange-gold. I am just so in love to the point where I would but this color a thousand times over!

Since it is a cream-type it doesn't blend very well. There is a sponge on the product but it pretty much erases it instead of spreading it. I used it to "erase" the product if it got in a place I didn't want it. It may be this color, but if I used it, it got rid of the color shift and left a very muted pink color. I didn't try using my fingers to spread but I'm sure doing this would do the same thing. I'm sure it would be fine on other colors to mute and spread them, but since it color shifts, it got rid of this property of the color.

I put a decent amount on to color my entire lid and make the color noticeable. It is a lighter color, but I wanted to see the color shift very easily. I need to find a product to either go in the crease or blend it out so its not just on my lid. I put it a little bit past my crease, but need to figure out a better look. I didn't have the time to do that today.

It last all day!!!! HUGE!! Like this is awesome. It's 10:30p and at 10 when I looked in the mirror, it had only faded on the eye I had been rubbing because it was itchy. There was an itty bitty, unnoticeable spot on the other lid where it might have creased, but also almost looked like I had missed a spot putting it on. My eyelids are pretty oily and "wrinkly" so this was a HUGGE MAJOR YEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! So excited. Oh, P.S. I did use an eye primer, but it was the ELF $1 one. Not sure if this made a huge difference. Will test without primer.

I'm going to buy the white next in hopes of using it underneathe eyeshadows to brighten them up and maybe it will cause them to stay on just as long! Will also buy a darker one to see how it does as well. 

No rating until I try it more than once. And when I figure out how I am going to rate them. Oh another thing, applying it was a little tricky to get it even and in all the places I wanted. I guess comparable to any cream stick when not using your fingers or another applicator to put on.

Brand new to this - Trying things out

Hmm, well after reading through some of my favorite blogs, and contemplating this for awhile, I have decided to start a blog. Not sure why. Don't know who is ever going to see/read it. I'm not sure about the direction this is going to go yet. I have two concepts in mind, so I probably will end up with two because they are such completely different things I don't want them combined. Readers of one would probably get bored with the other and vice versa. 


It mainly started out because Ulta opened up a store 5 minutes down the road from me (SO EXCITED! But there goes my weekly paycheck). And I felt the need to share my little mini haul after seeing many youtubers and bloggers do such a thing. My camera is currently lost so pictures would come later. I also ran to Walgreens because I LOVE HALLOWEEEN and they have Face Makers makeup by Wet n Wild and I bought a 9 pan glitter eyeshadow palette. So a mini review on that and all the other makeup I purchased with swatches to come!

I am quite excited for this, I hope it works out and I get some followers as well as maybe doing some videos if I can bare to share my voice. Also am hoping for some tutorials because the look I did today was AH-MAY-ZING if I should say so myself. I cannot afford to buy expensive makeup, so as for right now, and probably for a bit into the future, all makeup is affordable, drugstore, store brand, large palette makeup. 

Introductory post up soon. Still unsure of what I am going to call this and such. Not feeling so creative at the moment.

Sweet Dreams!
