December Beauty Favorites!

I am deeply saddened that December is coming to an end! This month has been such a whirlwind. I completed my first semester of grad school, and I am pretty darn proud of myself! It was tough, but I made it! I've been back home for break, but I am so sad that Christmas went by so quickly, and now it's the day before New Years Eve! I've had such a great and blessed year with so many inspirational people indefinitely impacting my life in so many positive ways that I could never expect them to. 2015 is going to be very interesting. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing, but I just know that I will be kept busy! :)

And now I give to you my December Beauty Favorites! My last Monthly Favorites for this month! I am planning on filming a lengthy video of the Best in Beauty products of 2014 and posting it really soon! I say that it's lengthy because I already wrote a list of all my favorite beauty products I've used this year that I absolutely love, and it's a long list! HAHA :P

Thanks so much for reading my blog and watching my vlogs! I greatly appreciate it!

Nighttime Skin Care Routine for Dry Skin!

The cold has been making my skin drier than ever, but there are several products that have been helpful at relieving the dryness and itchiness! Here's my current skincare routine for the evenings. If I could recommend three products that I mentioned in the video, it would be the Tarte Maracuja Oil, Aveeno Body Lotion, and Aveeno Moisturizing Bar. All three products are very hydrating for my dry skin. If you have any skincare recommendations for dry/sensitive skin, please let me know! I especially need something for my overly chapped lips! :P Thank you! :)

Holiday Nails!

Red nails are my favorite because they look so classy, yet sexy at the same time. LOL It's the holiday season so I decided to throw some silver and white colors on my nails. It's a very easy approach in achieving holiday nails! :P

What am I wearing?

China Glaze's "Red Satin" is very sheer. You need at least three coats to get it looking opaque. Milani's Holographic nail polish is discontinued, but it's a beautiful holographic silver when you build it up with 4+ coats. It also takes forever and a day to dry! I purchased the Sephora Formula X "Vaporize" polish at Marshalls for $4! It's a sheer white pearl shade - definitely perfect for the holidays!

Happy holidays friends! :)

SWATCHES: Em Cosmetics Lip Gallery Lipsticks!

Yes, I have more lipsticks to swatch and share with you guys! :X These are the Em Cosmetics Michelle Phan Lip Gallery Lipsticks that I purchased during the BOGO Free Black Friday sale. I have seven of them, but two are the same shade. I've heard great things about Michelle Phan's lipsticks, and at $7.50 a piece, why not?!

Watch below or read on!

I am wearing "Pomegranate" by Bite Beauty.

I provided lip swatches with(top)  and without flash (bottom).
  • Nude Lace (creamy) - nude pink
    This is my favorite of the bunch. It's such a a beautiful neutral shade. This definitely looks good on warm skin tone complexions! 

  • Misty Mauve (creamy) - mauve

  • Uptown (matte) - pink mauve 

  • Be Mine (creamy) - red pink 

  • Nine to Five (matte) - pink (cool tone)

  • Daredevil (creamy) - berry
    I apologize for this ugly swatch. After swatching my lips all night, my lips just felt worn out. Haha!

Here's a better picture of daredevil!

Have a great weekend! :)

Clinique - $30 off $80+ Voucher via Gilt City!

I've noticed that Gilt City has provided a lot of high end beauty vouchers at 30%+  off lately, and I checked their site today and they have a $30 off $80+ voucher that you can redeem on the Clinique website until the 29th of this month. All you have to do is RSVP, checkout (pay nothing), and you will receive a unique coupon code that will be sent to your email.

I'm not sure if I'll be using this promo since I really don't need anymore makeup or skincare products, but $30 off $80 is 37.5% off if you spend exactly $80! That's a great deal. Shipping is also free with any purchase on the Clinique website, plus you get a free gift if you spend $35+.

REVIEW: L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in "Tempt"

Everyone, and I mean, everyone has been talking about the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints and how similar they are to the O.C.C. Lip Tars! I've never tried the O.C.C. Lip Tars before, but I definitely picked up the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint since it was less than $4 (ikatehouse.com). Let me be the first one to say it: I am not impressed.

I picked up "Tempt" which is the most "vampiest" of the 12 shades available. I have to admit that the color is stunning, but what the heck am I wearing on my lips?! I don't know what I was expecting, but I should have known by the product name that it's a "glazed paint." It really does feel like I am wearing thin paint on my lips, which isn't pleasant by the way.

The applicator itself is messy since it's in a squeeze tube, and the applicator or maybe it's the formula of the product or both, I don't know-- is just not good an applying an even application. Expect patchiness and an uneven lip color unless you apply a million layers on top one another. One pro about this though is that you can control the intensity of the color. If you want your lips to be darker, add more product. If you want your lips to be lighter, add less. It is however, really difficult to wear this product sheer because the color looks uneven too! What do I mean by uneven? One part of your lips is darker than the other part of your lips-- the color isn't evenly distributed.

My lips look much better further away. This is not a comfortable lip product to wear.

Do I recommend this? Nope, at least not this color, but even then this type of lip product isn't for me, since I'm more into a creamy lipstick formula.

  • Messy, squeeze-tube applicator
  • Thin formula 
  • Uneven application and even patchiness
  • Takes forever to dry...

  • Inexpensive <$4
  • Ability to control color intensity... somewhat.

Don't get me started on their concealer either!  That's going to be another story/review sometime later. I'm already laughing just thinking about it. LOL

Black Friday Haul! :)

I know it's December, but I did film a short Black Friday haul from last week when I went with my sister! I didn't purchase too many things, and I did manage to spend a reasonable amount of money. *Pat on the back.* I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving last week! Expect this blog to get busier once it's December 17 a.k.a. the day after my last final! :P LOL

REVIEW: Tarte Cosmetics LipSurgence Set (Holiday 2014)

I missed out last holiday season on the Tarte LipSurgence set, so I knew I had to get my hands on it when I saw that Tarte released their set this year sometime in September. I am pretty satisfied! Most of the LipSurgence lippies are good, but a few of them are just a-okay. Watch my video below to find out my thoughts on these beauties.

Just want to see the swatches? :) I got'ya!

You can purchase this set on tartecosmetics.com, sephora.com, and ulta.com for $34 which is a great price considering this set retails for $100! :)

What is life?

What is life? Well, right now I can tell you that life for me has no brows. See photographic evidence below.

I am wearing "Rhubarb" from the Bite Beauty Remixed set. (Sold out online at Sephora)

But besides the fact that my brow hairs are sparse and has been lacking growth, the seasons are coming! The seasons are coming! Yes, fall has finally arrived as temperatures average around 70 degrees, and continue to slowly drop. Soon enough winter will come too... in February. I noticed that I tend to become less productive as it becomes colder, which isn't good considering the fact that finals are coming in just a mere two weeks. Half of December will be filled with presentations, exams, and assignment deadlines, and then a few days later it will be Christmas time!

I am definitely already in the holiday spirit! 

I drove home Thursday evening to San Diego for the weekend to get a teeth cleaning at the dentist (which by the way was horrible as I found out that the office was closed, despite having an appointment), and it's refreshing to be back home. 

I escorted my uncle with my mother to his post-op eye appointment. He has down syndrome and recently got a cataract surgery. It's unfortunate that he can't speak, but he sure has a lot of personality! Do you see all that paper on the floor and stool of the seat? His favorite activity is tearing paper into little bits and pieces. His favorite paper is shred is tissue paper, oh and a few of my books and coupons have been victimized by my adorable 40-year old uncle too!

Because I am in the holiday spirit, I started decorating the house! :D It's a tradition for my mother and me to put up holiday decor the week of Thanksgiving, but it just felt appropriate to do it sooner since I am no longer living at home. I like having a home where it feels cozy and warm! I think I accomplished just that!

Would you believe me if I told you almost everything in this picture was on super sale (50-90% off) with the exception of Mr. Grinch? ;)

For all you beauty fanatics out there, the CVS beauty clearance sale has begun! Look for the pink 50% off and green 75% off stickers placed on beauty products or if there are none yet, go on Instagram and look up the hashtag "#cvsbeautyclearance" to see what people have found that are ringing up as clearance. I stopped by a local CVS while I was in town and picked up the NYX Mosaic Powder for $3.74. Not bad!

One of the best reasons about going home is being able to hang out with my friends again! We celebrated Thanksgiving a little early by having an "Epic Hot Pot Night!" It was indeed "epic" as we feasted on seafood, meats, veggies, and maybe had a little too much soju and beer to drink. It was great seeing everyone again and having a blast like we used to in our college years. 

Now it's Monday, and Monday means business. I can't wait until it's Thanksgiving and then Christmas! :) Have a happy Monday, and a great week!

REVIEW: It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin

Within the past several years, I've heard so many people raving about the It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In products, and I admit that I happened to have gotten my hands on the original one a while back. Pricey little thing I must say, but it worked well for my hair making it smooth, soft and shiny in a good and healthy way. I also heard that the one with "plus keratin" was even better than the original, so I picked up a duo set at Target when I saw two for the price of one this past summer. My expectations were high. I loved the original one so much, so this one had to be better right, because it's PLUS keratin?! Keratin is good for your hair!? Well, after trying this product out here and there for the past several months, I have to say that it's not a favorite of mine. Although it smells extremely good, it doesn't do much for my hair with the exception that it detangles it.

The instructions states to apply it to damp hair and comb through. I've done that multiple times, and I've also used it directly on my dry hair alone. Some days I feel like it makes my hair silky and soft, and other days I feel as if my hair is just bland and weighed down with product. I've gone back to my BioSilk Silk Therapy serum, which I love, and I prefer over this. I seriously thought that the Plus Keratin product would take over my love for my BioSilk when I first purchased it, but I was wrong. You know how it seems to work for you the first couple of times and then it kind of stops? Yup, I think that's what happened.

Maybe it's my hair type, or maybe it's because I like another product more, but I will say that it is a very good smelling hair detangler. I was just expecting more out of this four ounce bottle that retails at most stores for $20. What do you guys think about this product? Hit or miss? I so badly wanted to enjoy this product! :\

The 10 things that this product is supposed to do for your hair.

Manicure Monday: Pink/Nude Nails!

This simple manicure is probably one of my favorites that I've done. I always enjoy painting my nails a nude shade that is slightly pink, and I enjoy some shine and glitter with that too! I am wearing Zoya's "Rue," and Butter London's "Dubs." 

Zoya's "Rue" is from the Naturel Collection and can be described as a cool-toned nude pink. It's very opaque, and leaves you with a beautiful cream finish. I absolutely love this shade! (2 coats)

Butter London's "Dubs" contains fine pink and silver glitter with larger circular silver glitter. This is a textured glitter so once it dries it has that rough surface that was once so popular back a year or two ago. This lacquer stays put since the polish eventually hardens on your nail, and if I could, I would wear glitter on my nails all the time, but I hate taking it off because it takes forever! My suggestion to save yourself some time in the future is to wear a base coat or a layer of a cream lacquer underneath the glitter, so that it's easier to take off in the future. It works for me all the time! Save yourself the struggle! (2 coats)

I Heart Fall Tag! :)

It is almost November! WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?! BUT, Halloween hasn't arrived yet! I love fall so much, so I decided to do the "I Heart Fall Tag!" This was so fun to do! Feel free to do it yourself! I want to hear/read it! :)

1. Favorite fall lip product?
L'Oreal Le Matte in "Matte-r of Fact!" This dark berry shade is so perfect for the fall! I love rockin' out the dark, bold lips during the colder seasons, and this one makes me feel "badass" in a weird way. Unfortunately this shade was a limited-edition twist-off lipstick from last fall, and that makes me so sad!

2. Favorite fall nail polish?
Again, I love the vampy dark colors for colder seasons, so I've been loving Zoya's "Dakota" which is almost like an oxblood/burgundy red, and Essie's "Velvet Voyeur" which is a deep darkened purple that almost appears black.

3. Favorite Starbucks fall drink?
Salted caramel mocha frap! I tend to consume colder drinks and foods during colder days for some reasons!

Photo source: starbucks.com

4. Favorite fall candle?

Mahogany Teakwood! It's the Abercrombie scent, but of a lesser degree.

Photo source: bathandbodyworks.com

5. Favorite fall scarf or accessory
One of my college friends gave me this beautiful scarf after he came back from India, and it's so special to me because he gave one to each of the girls in our hangout group, so all the girls have matching scarves, even though each scarf has a unique design.

6. Haunted house, haunted hay ride, or haunted corn maze?

Ugh, I hate the word, "haunted," so I would choose none, but between the three it would have to be haunted hay ride. I've had BAD experiences in the past going through haunted houses and whatnot, but the hay ride wasn't so bad when I went in high school, since I made sure I sat my butt in the middle of the truck where monsters, ghouls and scary things couldn't touch or get near me. *Smart girl*
7. Favorite Halloween movie?
Hocus Pocus! It's a Disney classic that my sister and I both love! 

Photo source: go.disney.com

8. Favorite candy to eat on Halloween?
Kit Kats and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Oh my goodness! :) 

9. What are you dressing up as for Halloween?!

I have no idea! I don't even have Halloween plans yet!

10. What is your favorite thing about fall?
Sweater weather, and the fact that we are getting closer to Christmas! :)

SWATCHES: LORAC Mega Pro Palette!

Hi everyone!
I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the limited edition holiday LORAC Mega Pro Palette ($59) last week, and I am here to bring you the swatches! From my understanding, this palette is sold out on the LORAC website; however, Amazon is supposed to have another shipment coming soon. You can sign up through Amazon HERE to get an update whenever the palette is available for purchase again. I heard rumors that it's coming back in stock again on the 18th? I have no clue, but sign up if you want to grab your hands on this palette! Do I think this palette is worth it? Yes. If you own any LORAC Pro Palettes, this is another must-have. Quality, buttery shadows for an amazing price. This would also be a great holiday gift.

Click on any photo to enlarge.
 The palette itself has the same rubber-matte texture like the other two pro palettes. This is exactly twice the size of one pro palette.

The top two rows are matte (16 shadows), and the bottom two rows are shimmer (16 shadows). The only colors that are repeated from the other two pro palettes that you see in the mega are: cream, white, and black.

Swatches below for each row.

The last one is not supposed to be "espresso," but "indigo."

My favorite rows? The 2nd and 4th ones! :) I've been using this palette almost every time I do my makeup now!
