The Three Musketeers! Kinda…ish…sort of….

Hello my Jujubes,

If you didn’t notice already, I added two new pretty awesome asians to this blog.  You all probably recognize Evon, who is my bfwlatcbwsleoa (best friend that lives across the country but we still love each other anyway).  We met when I had a youtube channel, and we still are besties even after I quit!  I also added Janine, my best friend in “real life” so to say.  She’s not as die hard about beauty and fashion like Evon and I, but she still interested in that stuff!  She’s into punky stuff.  For example, she wants to dye her hair blue and purple (partly).  She’ll explain more in her intro post, but I wanted to give you a little background (:~!  Now we are all one big family (ehh…) and can conquer the world…one lipstick at a time (LOL cheesy…Janine hates that stuff…but she has to deal with it.)

BTW, our “schedule” will be Evon will post on Tuesdays, I will post on Thursdays, and Janine on Saturday (:  Well, let’s just get into this.  AND, I almost forgot, thank you for 1,000 views.  I got there so fast, it’s amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you! ❤ Moi!

Janine has introduced me to new music (I used to be a mainstream wh*re), and here are some of my favorites :D!

1. All Time Low: Damned if I Do Ya, Break Your Little Heart, I Feel Like Dancing

2. Cobra Starship: Good Girls Go Bad, Hot Mess, City Is At War

4. Jack’s Mannequin: Dark Blue,

5. OneRepublic: Stop and Stare, All this Time, Good Life, Secrets

7. Paramore: Playing God, Monster, Misery Business, The Only Exception

8. Ron Pope: A Drop in the Ocean

9. Train: Drops of Jupiter

Refrain- Nails of the Day:

This picture do not do these nails justice!

Today, I’m wearing OPI Over the Taupe (I got my nails done with it, and I love it!  Need to buy it :D) and later when I got home I layer Sinful Colors Let Me Go on top.  Its pretty much gorgeousness on your fingernails, I’m in freaking love with it!

Chorus- Fall into Autumn, A Makeup Tutorial:

So you might remember this eye look from my old freshfabulous blog but I decided to recycle it to this blog since my camera isn’t working so I can’t take pictures.  Also, I deleted the last blog before I saved the text part so it’s all new description!

1. Prime you lids: This will keep everything on all day and make colors more vibrant.  I used the Shiseido The Makeup Eye Primer.

2. Apply a shimmery light beige base to the lid: Since the liner is the main part of the look, a subtle lid color is the way to go so your lids don’t look bare but don’t overpower the look.  I used the lightest color in the Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow Quad.

3. Do the wing: Using the foiling liquid of your choice, wet a small liner brush and use it to apply a dark copper wing to the upper and lower lash line (I used a toner to foil, and the lighter color from the NARS duo in Cordura to do the wing, and a e.l.f. Detail Brush to apply the eyeshadow). To do a wing, extend the lower lash line and connect your lined upperlash line, then fill it in.  Do the same to the lower lash line, except only line the lower lash line halfway.

4. Set the wing: Using the same eyeshadow dry, set the wet wing to help it last.

5. Layer Mascara: Layer mascara’s to create the spider lashes affect

And you are done!  Hope you guys enjoyed that! 😀

Bridge- Items of Interest:

1. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Travel Size Set of Five in Naked

~It looks super uber cool!  I’ve always wanted to try the UD pencil liners, and this is just makes it convenient! It has very neutral colors, and at $32, you can’t go wrong, with a full size being $18 (which I probably would never use up!).~

2. Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection

~The packaging it to die for, the colors look amazing, and I’ve heard so many good things about it!  Also, they are all new colors, so if you already own UD Palettes, you would have two of the same!~

3. Bare Escentuals Brushless Mascara

~I know what your thinking, a brushless mascaraI?  Wouldn’t that clump your lashes horribly?  Well, let me explain.  I saw a review on youtube by FleurdeForce, and it look AMAZING.  Like not just eh, but GORGEOUS.  It separated her lashes amazingly and in the end they looked like long, curled fans surrounding her eyes, no joke!~

4. Benefit Sugarbomb 

~I’ve heard it the perfect neutral blush that gives you the perfect glow, and I want to know if it is “the one”. But for $28 is it worth it?~

5. T3 Single Pass Whirl

~This clamp-less curling iron has amazing reviews, and it’s said to be the best on the market.  However, I’m skeptical about the $130 price tag, and wonder if there is a cheaper alternative.

Coda- Quote of the Day:

Fall Hits and Misses

Hello to my Jujube’s!

Fall is officially in session; the leaves have turned orange and red, the weather has slowly gotten cooler, and its time to take out the warm sweaters and fuzzy boots!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hits:

~Make Up For Ever HD Foundation: These days’s, I’ve been mixing it with my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion to use as a tinted moisturizer. I only used to use it for dance recitals because I needed an HD Finish, and now I can used to everyday and not let it go to waste!  As a tinted mositurizer, it goes on smoothly and evenly, has a nice velvety finish to the skin, and blends in superbly.  When I have it on, it doesn’t look like I’m wearing anything, and doesn’t clog my pores.  In addition, it was $40…need to get my money’s worth.

~Too Cool for School Angel Blusher: This blush just give a beautiful glow to the skin. It looks super natural and it’s one of those blushes I’m ok with wearing to school.  The baby pink gives you this young, fresh looking cheeks which is amazing.  Also, I love the finish and how smoothly it applies.  For an in depth review, check out my previous post here.

~NYX Jumbo Pencil in Iced Mocha: I’ve been wearing it all over the lid recently and it looks gorgeous. In general, NYX Jumbo Pencil apply smoothly and blend with no effort at all.  They are great for bases, or just wearing alone.  Iced Mocha is a beautiful color for everyday.  It’s super natural and has this beautiful shine and finish on the lid.  And guess what! it’s inexpensive as well!

~theBalm and the Beautiful Palette: I love this palette so so much! The texture the all the shadows are buttery smooth and it has great colors to choose from.  I use this palette everyday when I have time to actually apply eyeshadow in the morning.  This palette makes it super easy to create a quick and easy everyday look.  I have neutrals, sultry colors, bright and fun colors, and dark, smokey colors as well!  With this palette, I feel like I have the power to create endless looks.  Let me know if you want a review or a tutorial with this palette featured.

~Milani Liquif’eye Metallic Eyeliner in Brown: This eyeliner… oh mah gawd.  It goes on so smoothly its unbelievable.  I can create thin and thick lines.  I can smudge it out all over the lid for a little more of a dramatic look.  I am empowered with this eyeliner.  It’s so creamy, and it lasts forever.  Gosh, I can’t get over this eyeliner.  If you buy one of the things I’ve mentioned, but this!  And just as the cherry on top, it’s available at the oh so convenient drugstore at a price that won’t make your wallet cry!

~MAC Lustreglass in Love Nectar: This is just the perfect sparkly pinky-nude lipgloss.  It goes on smoothly and has a brush applicator for precise application.  I love how you can’t feel the glitter and sparkles in the gloss (let me tell you something… i absolutely hate when i can feel glitter on my lips).  Also, it last a good 3 hours on me if I don’t lick it off (it smells and tastes ah-mazing).  In addition, it’s not too expensive, at the lower end of the price range for high end products.

~Essie Nail Polish in Spagetti Straps: I love this color; it’s just the perfect cream baby pink.  It has a nice formula that is easy to work with, but i warn you it goes on sheer.  It takes a good 3-4 coats for it to become opaque, but i swear that the outcome is gorgeous.  I usually wear it with Sinful Colors Gold Glitter Polish (sticker fell off) on the thumb and pinky for some extra swag.  It’s a great all year color, and I defiantly recommend it!

Misses

~Maybelline Fit Me Concealer: This “Fit Me” line claims to “blend into the skin flawless” and “look natural”.  No.  Just no.  Do not lie to me Maybelline.  This concealer cakes and does not blend.  It doesn’t just half blend, no no siree.  This refuses to blend, it just sits on my skin and pushes around.  I do not know how to deal with this concealer.  Everytime it comes in my sight, I want to just throw a fit of rage about how bad it is.  Okay, I’m exaggerating, but do not by this concealer.  It is a horrible waste of your hard earned cash, dinero, doe, dollars, bills, whatever you want to call it.

~Benefit Perfect 10 Box:  This box powder is…eh.  It’s very sparkly, so when it’s supposed to “contour” your face, it leaves a glitter bomb behind.  The highlighter side is not a shimmery as the bronzer which amazes me that benefit did not have the sense to make that vice versa?  Though it doesn’t work that way, no fear, I found a way to use it.  I swirl both colors together and use it as a everyday highlight in the summer for a bronzy glow. For fall however, it’s not very natural to be sporting a summer glow when summer is gone gone gone away!

Not many misses; sign I’m getting better at being a better shopper! 😀

 

Updates:

-Homework has been piling on like my dad piles butter on toast.  I know, my simile skills are so chill.

-Evon and I have been planning a swap!  I’m so excited (:

 

Hope you all have a lovely day:

<3, Juju
