Strangly Tea Rose is not rose at all when on my lips but swatched its dark.

Notes: Paris looks like a darkish pink but goes on much lighter, Narcissus is seriously brighter then bubble gum pink, I tried to edit the color in photoshop but they didn't even have it. Everything else is pretty much spot on except Margerita is a little bit lighter.

CherryCulture.com NYX Haul

I got my Cherryculture haul today! I love everything but two of the lipstick colors. I'll have to try them on later and see if they look better on. I will swatch everything tomorrow.

NYX jumbo e/s pencils Yellow, Purple, Hot Pink & Amuse glitter mascara

NYX e/s brush #1, this thing is soooo tiny

its smaller then my pinky nails, and my fingers are really small

here is the purple/prune/deep purple trio

the Round Lipsticks if you can't read the names just ask. I don't think I like Taupe and Ceto :(

LA Colors Glittering Starlet palette, surprisingly pigmented & very sparkly, named Elizabeth


here is Fuchsia, Violet, and Yellow pigments and Luxor e/s

my problem now is that Violet, Luxor and the Team Spirit Trio purple look the same lol

here they are swatched, the blues and green are from the LA Colors palette


Should I keep all three purples or return the Luxor? Idk, idk.

Guess where I went shopping?

Uh huh, I got me some Forever 21.

$10
$13
$5 this is actually all black, flash washed it out
$13 this is dark blue/black
$11 I love this dress, it looks better on me in real life
These two dresser were $12 but I think I'm going to return them. They are shorter then I like and the top V goes way too low on my chest, and I have a bit of trouble filling it out so it like comes open. I don't want to have to worry about everyone seeing my bra when I wear these so its not practical to keep them. (at least thats what I'm telling myself)

UDPP gets cut.

It was getting hard to get any product out of my bottle of UDPP so I figured it was time to cut the sucker open. I've been using it for about 10 months, and I took out the stopper (the plastic bit in the opening that keeps you from taking out too much) 6 months ago. If you do this make sure you put it in a GLASS jar, it'll dry out in a plastic one (this is why MAC and such use glass).


It kind of looks like two crazy eyes are starring at you... O_0

This is just from scooping out the top half.

Super cute Forever 21 tops!

I went to Forever 21 this morning (I'll be moving in any day now) and found 3 really cute tops for practically nothing. The first two were the ONLY ones in the store, and I got them (muahahaha!). I was going to order these online anyways but the F21 website doesn't seem to have all the colors up. The third shirt I was going to order online too, I like not having to wait for it to come in the mail though. I've got plenty of other stuff to get online anyways (like more of those $12 jeans, SO COMPFY!).

$4.50


$9.80


I paid like $20 in total, my wallet is happy =)

L'Oreal De Crease vs. Urban Decay Primer Potion

It took me ages, but I finally got around to trying out L'Oreal's De Crease eye primer against Urban Decay's Primer Potion. I had De Crease for a long time before UDPP but I stopped using it because I couldn't get any more product out of the tube, even though you can clearly see that it looks full. However I think that maybe they put some kind of filler between the outside and actual product, but I'm not possitive.

Anyways, I used both primers at the same time and UDPP clearly won. De Crease starting creasing after just 4 hours, and UDPP didn't start creasing until after 7-8 hours. Eight hours still sucks, so usually I put pressed powder over UDPP and it'll last another 3-4 hours for me but I didn't this time.

UDPP: $17
L'Oreal De-Crease: $8

(the silver thing is a sword if you couldn't tell :)

Right after I put it on, still fresh and pretty.


5 hours later and I've got a little creasing on the De Crease side but the UDPP side is still looking good


at 9 hours DC is looking like a hot mess and UDPP is just starting to crease
