JujuJabbers: Swatch Scars

Hello Jujubes!

First, I just wanted to acknowledge the fact I have just relapsed into a tumblr addiction.  Its not healthy.

Today I’m doing a jumbo post, as promised in my last post, which was very short and kind of sad…:P.  Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful week!  I sure didn’t…so much stuff happened, I’m so glad it’s the weekend and I get to sleep in,  not have finals, and have some alone time with just me and my computer!

So, this week I have some makeup to haul!  This will probably be more of a haul/review since I’ve had time to use the products and stuff.  So, without further ado, leggo! (:

∞~Ready to Go~∞

Verse: polishrant:  the speechless horror

Refrain: the contest results.

Chorus: drugstore swatcharoo!: feat. maybelline, e.l.f, and revlon

Bridge:  the -otd’s

Verse:

You’ve got these little things
That you’ve been running from
You either love them or I guess you don’t
You’re such a pretty thing
To be running from anyone
A vision with nowhere to go

polishrant: a horror story

There once was a girl named Juju, who decided to paint her nails a pretty color named “Austentatious Turquoise” from OPI.  It was a mini polish, and because of her love of mini things, decided to try it because of its cute packaging even though she hadn’t heard the best reviews about it.  As she painted her nails, she noticed something horrid; low pigmentation. Very skeptical that OPI would make such a terribly thin and watery polish, she tried another coat to see if it would turn opaque.  Nothing.  Another coat maybe would help, she thought.  After five coats of horror, it looked presentable, though you could still see the nail line, and it had gotten unbearably goopy looking.  Not wanting to spend time removing it, and already being late for a dinner, she quickly put a coat of quick drying top coat on her left hand and rushed out the door.

I hope you guys enjoyed that little story segment.  Pretty clever, huh? Wait…no? Oh, ok….

the results:

day numero 1 left hand

  Sorries about the blurry pic, I’m still getting used to my new camera.  But this showed off the adorble mini bottle!  If you guys haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for mini things.  AND jumbo sized things, like giant pocky!  BTW, this is my hand with topcoat!

day numero 2 left hand

Day 2.  As you can see, there is major tip wear already, and some chipping on the thumb.  However, this is good compared to…

day numero 4 right hand

No words.  Speechless.  Three words for every nail polish junkie; DO NOT BUY!!  The reviews on the full bottle are the same as mine, so its not just the mini size.

This color, though gorgeous, is very dupable [it is just a teal color], and you can probably find a drugstore dupe that has a better formula.  Do not waste your 8 bucks on this.  Go and get another OPI, like “Grape…Set…Match!” or “Servin’ Up Sparkle”.  Its not worth it!!

Refrain:

So tell me right now
You think you’re ready for it
I wanna know
Why you got me going
So let’s go
We’ll take it out of here
I think I’m ready to leap
I’m ready to live

the contest results

So, I’m pretty much going to paraphrase what janine said in the post here.

The Scores:

Cindy: 0/60

Alexa: 24/60

Evon: 25/60

Rain: 25/60

Cece: 35/60

Jill: 40/60

Arielle: 40/60

Avery: 48/60

Randy: 50/60

Lauren: 58/60

The next challenge is to make a playlist of 5 youtube videos/ youtubers that you think we will like.  There is no need for title.  You can’t use anything from Janine’s last post or the Motion Picture Entertainment page.

Good Luck!

Chorus:

I’m ready to go
(Get me out of my mind
Get me out of my mind)
I’m ready to go
(Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh)

 drugstore haul/swatcharoo!: feat. maybelline, e.l.f, and revlon

first up to bat: Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Pink Plum

I really like the formula; it is sheer, but it feels really nice on your skin, doesn’t make you feel greasy, and gives you a nice glowy flush.  Also, its super fun to play with; like playdough!

next up: e.l.f. blush and bronzing duo in blushed/bronzed

Personally, I think the blush is too sparkly.  However, I like the bronzer; it has a natural sheen and is pigmented.  Me likey 😀

here is our next special guest: TheBalm Time Balm

I LOVE this concealer; probably a HG (holy grail) product.  Its 10 hours of extra sleep in a pot, pretty much.  This goes on smoothly, doesn’t cake, and is super pigmented.  This is love  ♥

for our act of the night: Maybelline Volume Express One by One mascara

This is my second tube of this mascara, so I think that alone shows how much i like this mascara.  The formula isn’t too wet or too dry, and the wand is brilliant (:

and the last act to end the show: Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum

The Revlon Lip Butter; what can I say, I joined the band wagon.  All I can say is that it is totally worth the hype.  First off, I love the buttery consistency it has on my lips.  The color is also fabulous, it really is my lip color, but better [trust me, I hate that term], but it is truly amazing.

Bridge:

I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think

the -otd’s:

NOTD:

So right now, I’m currently wearing something that might be my new favorite nail combo/manicure.

You guys ready for the awesomeness?

Sorry for the crappy iSight quality

Its Essie’s First Dance [bright red jelly like creme] with OPI’s Pro’s and Bronze [gold, copper, and pink fleck glitter] on top.  MIND EXPLOSION.  I’m kind of in love with it.  AND, it been three days and I haven’t had a single chip, and no tip wear!  Even with no top coat.  I must say, I’m very impressed.

AOTD:

So, today’s app of the day is really mainstream.  Almost everyone knows what it is. Its called…

TEMPLE RUN

Oh, and I have relapsed into my addiction to tumblr.

QOTD:

Hope you guys enjoyed the post (: See you next time

With Love,

Juju
