Quick FOTD

I've missed class two days in a row trying to recover from the stomach bug =/

Thursday, October 22, 2009


As you probably already know from most the of EOTDs that I've posted up, I like my eyeshadow look to be a little bit neutral/natural. So here's a perfect example with the look I did today...

Eye Products Used

Aromaleigh Primer/Base
Jane's AguaMousse Eyeshadow in Silver Dollar
Aromaleigh mineral shadow in Fox
MAC's eyeshadow in Glamour Check

Fox is such a pretty/sparkly color. These pictures just don't do it justice.

I've been getting questions about some of the products I've been posting up so I'll probably do reviews on them when I get the chance. I'll probably do a video review on all the Rimmel Products that I own and on all the Revlon Lippies that I own. So do come back and check for updates. thanks for reading =]

Lipsticks, Mascaras, and Eyeshadows..Oh My!

I bought some goodies the other day but never got around to posting up swatches for them. These are the things that I bought..

my son got his hands on the tempting and scratched out some of the color. It's okay though, after freaking out for about an hour, I've decided to forgive him =/

I went to the Cosmetic Company at our local mall and picked up a few MAC items. I saw the Tempting Quad and felt like I just had to have it. I've been wanting Tempting for awhile now anyways, so i kinda killed two birds with one stone by buying this quad. I remember seeing one of the gurus on youtube do a review on her Metal-X cream shadow so I figured I'd give that a try. I bought the MAC's Metal-X cream shadows in Gold Spice (which is a bronzy gold) and in Material Gold (which is more of a illuminating champagne color). I really like these things. They're both so incredibly pretty. If you don't already know, I love sparkly, metallic-y eyeshadows (A LOT).

L to R: Gold Spice. Material Gold. Next To Nothing. Sharp. Tempting. Dark Edge.

Rimmel was buy one, get one free at Walgreens so that's why I bought two of their mascaras. I have their Glam'eyes mascara already but am almost out. It's by far my favorite mascara. But I felt like I wanted to try some of their other mascaras so I bought two different ones. I bought the Glam'eyes Lash Flirt and their new one, The Max VolumeFlash (which resembles Covergirl's big orange mascara). I've been using the Max VolumeFlash and kinda, sorta like it. It's no glam'eyes, but it'll do. hahah. It's not clumpy (which is a very good thing) and does an okay job of separating my lashes but just doesn't deliver enough color. And definitely NOT enough volume. I probably wouldn't purchase this again. It's okay but not the best. I haven't tried the Lash Flirt yet but will probably get around to using it this weekend.

I also bought lipsticks!! =D

L to R:MAC's pleasureseeker. REVLON's Twinkled pink and Just enough buff.

I'm a little bit obsessed with lipsticks..

Hope you guys enjoyed my little haul. Let me know if there are any questions..

Aromaleigh Minerals Haul

So I first heard about Aromaleigh from a video review that Fafibaby12 did and I was immediately interested. If you've never heard of Aromaleigh, you should definitely check them out. They've got a variety of gorgeous mineral colors at affordable prices. What's even better is that they have new sales every week. I was able to snag my full-size eyeshadows at 50% off, paying only about $2.88 for each of them. That's a pretty awesome bargain if you ask me. So here's my haul..

I ordered their Eyeshadow Primer and base (the larger container), 8 of their full-sized mineral eyeshadows from their Pure Hue collection, and 3 sample baggies. For those who aren't too sure if they want to commit to one full-size container, they do sell samples for $1.00. Who ever came up with that idea is a genius! haha. They also included 3 free sample baggies with my order. They definitely have customer service down pact =)

So here are the color swatches for my full-size shadows...

L to R:Arbor. Bronze. Caribe. Fox. Holy Grail. Peacoat. Pewter. Regal.

The colors are absolutely amazing. They're so vibrant. I love love love these things! Now whether you use a primer or not, it's really up to you but honestly, I think they're much more vibrant on top of a primer/base. Speaking of Primer, I really like the primer that I ordered from them. It's a bit sticky but goes on dry and almost translucent, and a little definitely goes a loooong way with this. I like it a lot and will probably order it again if I ever run out. If you don't order anything off their site, atleast order this. Believe me, you won't be disappointed. Here's a quick photo of it..

I bought mines in light.

and here's a quick swatch of the sample baggies that I received.

L to R: Aurelie. Mireille. Nico. Purple Princess. Satin Laces. Teddy Wisp.

Due to my eye infection, I steered clear of makeup for a few days so I wasn't able to play with these colors a much as I'd like. But so far I've used fox, holy grail, and satin laces. These colors are so pretty and so versatile.

The only thing I don't like is that I think the full-size containers are rather small. They're much smaller than what I'd imagine them to be. I also found it hard at times to try to get the colors out of the little holes. LOLz. Maybe it's just me. Here's a comparison of a full-sized jar next to a MAC eyeshadow..

It's rather small.

But the size of it doesn't even compare to the quality of the product. This is good stuff. You have to at least try one sample baggie just to know how beautiful the colors really are. I'll probably get a EOTD done today before I head to work. If you've got any questions, feel free to ask =]


I ordered my stuff Wednesday night and received it Saturday morning. Their shipping is awesome!


So here's the look I did for today using:
-Nyx eyeshadow in black
-MAC eyeshadow in Next to Nothing


if you want a complete list of everything I used on my entire face/eyes/lips/ect..just let me know. I'll be more than happy to list them.

Blog Award? For Me?!? Why, Thank You!!! =)

My very first blog award!!..I'm ubber excited.

I guess I'm suppose to..
— Accept the award; post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
— Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for these awards.

Thanks to Karen (Riny) for the awards. I couldn't help but wonder when I was gonna get one of these things. LOLz. Thanks hunn, you made my day =D

And...she also tagged me! yaay. According to the tag, I think I'm suppose to give 10 random facts about me and then tag 10 people. So here it goes...

[1] I procrastinate..ALL the time =/ It's a habit I need to kick or else my son's going to pick up on it (which we definitely don't want happening). One of my teachers once told me that those who procrastinate tends to have more stress in their lives...hmmmm..that probably explains a lot.

[2] I looooove to dine out. Food is my savior. I'll eat anything and everything. I loooove me some food. That's probably where most of my money goes =/

[3] I'm literally going blind, yet I refuse to go to the eye doctor. *sigh* don't want to add more bills to the list.

[4] I wake up 7 am almost every morning (including weekends thanks to my biological clock). I hate waking up in the mornings. I'm NOT a morning person, at all.

[5] I spend my whole day Sunday watching nothing but football. My favorite teams so far are the Vikings (yes, I've joined the Brett bandwagon), Colts, and the Giants. My brother says that I can only have one favorite team, so I tried to narrow it down, but I can't. It was impossibly hard. I love them all!! What can I say, I like my Mannings and my Brett.

[6] I don't shave my legs unless I'm about to go out. LOLz. gross eh? It's cool though, my bf hasn't complained yet. hahaha.

[7] I didn't learn how to drive until I was 20. pretty pathetic. haha

[8] I'm Hmong, my BF is Laos, and my son is Vietnamese. hahah. talk about diverse =)

[9] I hate carrying a purse around. I have one and occasionally I'll buy a new one but I always end up leaving it at home and taking my wallet instead.

[10] I sleep with my mouth open sometimes. Which reminds me, 2 years ago I fell asleep in the car while my sister-in-law was driving and my son tried to stick his A.B.C gum in my mouth. LOLz. everyone though it was hilarious, I still do every time I think about it.

That's about I tag you to do this!

Eye Infection..OUCH!!

Sorry for the lack of wanting to update. I've been suffering from a horrible and hideous eye infection and don't really feel like doing anything but maybe mope around because I look A MESS! *sigh* My self-esteem is at a major low right now... Aromaleigh mineral eyeshadows order came in the other day so I've been playing with it a little. I've been applying it to my non-infected eye =D. hahaha. I'll post up pictures/swatches/reviews/ect as soon as I can. I ordered a few of the full size colors as well as the sample baggies. And I also ordered their Eye Primer/Base, which I'm loving at the moment. If you've never heard of Aromaleigh, you should definitely visit their sight. They've got some beautiful eyeshadow colors at affordable prices. --> ..and tell me what you guys think =]

That's enough update for now. With this infected eye, all I've been wanting to do is sleep. So off to bed I'll be going. 'nite guys <3
