I totally feel like I am getting back into my blogger groove!!! I have a bunch of posts lined up and today I am going to go sit out on the front porch of my apartment and reply to comments :). I went out to a bar with my boyfriend last night so I thought I would take another crack at a FOTN (face of the night) post,  it definitely was a lot easier when he took the photos for me!!. Please ignore my manky eyebrows I think I am going to go get them threaded since I cannot seem to pluck them very well. I don't know about you ladies but whenever I go out I always do the exact same makeup, a gold/bronze smokey eye and thats it. I bought this Maybelline Colour Tattoo about a month ago and I just love the teal/green colour its gorgeous!!!! So I thought I would do something a little different for me and put it underneath the lower lash line which I freaking LOVE, it just makes my blue/grey eyes pop out.  I definitely want to get some more of the Colour Tattoos, they are great. I have been trying out a new bronzer from Annabelle and so far I love it even more than my NYC Sunny bronzer which I didn't think was possible, there will be a review up on that product soon. I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Review: Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

      Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara $2.99 on Beautyjoint

I showed this mascara in my last makeup haul and I finally used up two of the other mascaras I had open a couple of weeks ago so I could use this bad boy. I first heard about this on youtube from LaurenBeauty and for three bucks I figured it was definitely worth a try next time I sent in a order to Beautyjoint or Cherry Culture!! I am a huge believer in have a good mascara, if I am late for class or having a lazy day I will put quickly put some on and its just such a huge change. Mascara was the first makeup product I ever bought for myself when I was thirteen years old so throughout the years I have tried a few different kinds. This mascara is awesome, no doubt about it and I was pretty skeptical when I pulled out the wand since it doesn't look like anything special. Before I always used to layer about three mascaras together to get my lashes to look the way I wanted but all I do now is put this on over my Elf Mascara primer which is fantastic (review here) then boom, huge lashes. Its pretty wet but I dont end up getting to much on my eyelids which is a huge bonus since I am super clumsy when it comes to that. My only con is there isn't a waterproof version which I would like, I wear contacts and my eyes are always dry so I have to use drops or my eyes tear up a bit and then my mascara starts to smudge. To fix this I like to run a bit of a waterproof mascara over the Jordana Great Lash to seal it in just in case!! This is a great mascara it beats all of the Maybelline, Covergirl and Rimmel ones I have tried so far. I am such a big fan of Jordana products, I know they are super cheap in the U.S and we don't get them here in Canada but so far everything I have tried has been wonderful. Have a great day everyone!!

Will You Still Love Me When I'm No Longer Young And Beautiful

Jacket: Thrift $8, Purse: Forever 21 $7, Scarf: Stitches $5, Shirt: Old Navy $5, Leggings Stiches $9, Doc Martens: $130

Hello everyone!!!! I actually took these photos on my blackberry or well my boyfriend did but I don't think they turned out to bad although we are still having framing issues (lol). My camera is going to be fixed on tuesday and I am SO excited to get it back and start blogging regularly. I have been shopping and have some awesome outfits to post and lots of makeup favourites :). I recently bought this scarf and I have been so in love with it, the second I saw it in the store I knew I had to get it. The skull print sold me on it, it totally reminds me of the stuff I used to wear when I was going through my all black clothing phase. I got the jacket earlier this year, my old black one which I LOVED got stolen at a club (tear) so I have been wearing this as a replacement. After school ended I went on a bit of shopping spree and I got two of the same shirt in different colours from the Old Navy Clearance section for five dollars each, the other one is in this pretty coral colour. I picked them up in a large since they are awesome oversized shirts to wear with leggings on lazy days while still looking cute. Although you cant see it here there is a little chest pocket and they go a bit off the shoulder. The weather here has been crazy, it was so hot last week everyone was in shorts and now its snowing out as I type this, so weird!! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Review: NYX Round Lipsticks

In My Sleep by Austin Hartley-Leonard, Kendall Jane Meade on Grooveshark

Nyx Round Lipsticks

Good morning everyone!!! I decided to wake up at six thirty this morning and couldn't get back to sleep so I figured would do a bog post. I recently dropped my lovely Canon DSLR camera on the floor and broke the lense (I may have cried a little after that) so I need to take it to a camera store to get fixed :(. I had taken these photos already so I could do one more post but I am quite upset. I have been shopping and I have some awesome bargains to show everyone and moneys more than a little tight (when is it not) so this did not happen at a good time, anyways enough of my moaning and onto the review!! I currently have four NYX Round Lipsticks and I love them. They are super creamy and decently pigmented, lipstick never seems to last to long on me so they have about the same longevity as all of my other lipsticks. I bought Narcissus and Strawberry Milk on ebay over a year ago so I dont really remember how much I payed for them but i recently purchased Chic and Tea Rose on Beautyjoint and they were about three/four dollars which is pretty awesome!!!! It is so bloody hard to find NYX products in Canada but I definitely want to try more of there products. Cherry Culture has a 40% off sale on all NYX products and I am trying so hard to resist placing a order.

Strawberry Milk, Narcissus, Chic, Tea Rose

I absolutely love Strawberry Milk, Chic and Tea Rose, they look amazing on the lips. Strawberry Milk is this incredibly pale pink which I didn't wear for about a year after I bought it since I thought it was a bit to pale for me but I discovered recently it is amazing for mixing other colours with to create the perfect pink shade for me. Chic is this really bright coral shade which I think will look amazing in the summer with a tan. Tea Rose is a deeper reddish colour which is actually a darker version of my natural lip colour. Narcissus is the only one the photos don't do justice for since it is almost a neon bright pink. It is the only one I have never worn even though I have tried mixing it with other colours, I still cannot get it to look nice on me. Overall I would definitely recommend trying the NYX round lipsticks but definitely research the colours and look at swatches first because I dont think I would have purchased Narcissus if I had!! Have a great day everyone :).
