Oh Winter...

Sometimes I feel like there are two kinds of people in the world, ones that love winter or ones that love summer. My boyfriend is a true summer lover. Not only was he born in July, but as soon as the first leaf touches the ground, it's time to break out the gloves and heavy jackets. On the other hand, as long as I can layer to get warm enough, I prefer the winter. Nothing beats snuggling under layers as opposed to sweating your butt off. My personal motto is "You can always add layers to get warm, but if you're hot...once you're naked... it's game over".

Anyhow, as much as I love winter, I'm not a fan of some of the consequences that come along with it. My skin and hair tends to get a lot dryer this time of year. I usually end up having to make sure I switch to heavier creams, adding in some night time care as well. I normally take long hot showers, but during winter I try to limit those as well.  For my hair, more leave in conditioners is a must. It's been a while since I've worn a hat, but this year I'm considering braiding up my hair or something so that I can wear one~. I'm sure that would help. I also end up having to switch to something like Head and Shoulders once in a while when washing my hair.

To be honest, I also tend to stay inside more often to avoid the possibility of being cold. I really am not good at loving winter up close...but seriously...it beats the hot sun hands down!

Bare Minerals Iced Coffee Lipgloss Swatch

Despite having enough lipgloss to last eons, I went and bought another one. This times its Bare Minerals Iced Coffee Lipgloss.


Iced Coffee:


Brush Wand:

I don't really have much to say about it since I just opened it tonight. It has a very sweet smell, reminds me of...mm cupcakes I think. I love brush wands...and maybe this isn't super cool, but the fact that every time I pull the wand out of the tube, it seems like it has a little stopper guy to keep it from getting messy amazes me. The wand always looks clean~!

Maybe I'll wear it tomorrow and see whats up.

Zero Liner~

The Zero part of the double ended liner from my Urban Decay turned out to be my most used black liner these past couple of weeks.

Um. I'm actually kind of sad to see it almost go.

 Time to get a new one I guess.

Never thought I'd like a pencil liner...Let's keep this a secret from my gel liners okay?

Hi There!

Had a pretty craptastic week so I've been laying low. Someone broke into my car so I don't have a window at the moment, second to last Japanese test didn't go well which isn't encouraging since N2 is next week, old phone kicked the bucket but I did manage to get a new one yesterday after being phoneless for a few days...The list is a little longer but...

That week is super over. So, bleh! This week should be good though. I have a feeling that it will be lol.

Finally used some color again:


Graftobian foundation in Golden Sunset
Cargo Bronzer in Dark
LaFemme Mocha blush

Urban Decay eyeshadow in Free Love and S&M

Sugarpill eyeshadow in Bulletproof
Stars Makeup Haven Eyeshadow in Wine Not?
MAC Firecracker and Ricepaper Eyeshadows
Urban Decay Zero Liner

N.Y.C Carnegie Melon Extreme Lip Glider Lipgloss

Ok thats all for now. If I'm not back before the holiday, everyone please enjoy and be safe if traveling about!

Face 5~

On school days I tend to not do too much in terms of makeup. Some days I'll feel spiffy and add a color, but most days I keep it super simple like in the pictures that follow.

Graftobian Foundation in Golden Sunset
Korres Blush in Purple
Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick in Apricot

Urban Decay Naked (as a switch from my usual MAC Tempting)
Urban Decay Bourbon Liner
Covergirl Lashblast Fusion

MAC Sweetie lipstick
LORAC Couture lipgloss

So sad my favorite picture came out blurry! I tried again but...that never works lol

It's very rare that I paint my nails since I have the tendency to take the colors off the next day. But this weeks nails just so happen to be:
Sally Hanson in Wet Cement.

Flip Lucky Berries!

Get it??
It's raining over here and it's absolutely miserable but I'm still in a pretty good mood despite my socks getting wet through my shoes. I should've worn my rainboots...Guess I had a lapse in judgment as I ran out the door this morning.

On to the eyes:

And closed:

MAC Lucky Green, Birds & Berries, Flip, Ricepaper
Sugarpill Bulletproof
Smashbox Nude
Urban Decay Zero Liner
CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion

In other news, I'm absolutely excited! For weeks I've been doing my best to not buy anything and now its paying off! I even skipped on the Sephora Friends&Family! What could make me do such a thing?!

Mm...A light. More specifically, my first studio strobe.

On the plus side, I liked going through what I already have and using things that I barely touch or haven't touched at all. Downside...I do have a list of things I'm possibly curious about but never looked at because I didn't want to buy.

It never ends...lol

In other news, how was everyone's Halloween? I did not participate in any festivities nor did I dress up. I was a true stick in the mud this year. I did get to see a lot of cool costumes though. A few Avatars, some Kittens, couple of devils, etc...

I'm wondering if anyone reading is looking forward to any holiday collections this year or if you've already gotten something, care to share? I'm personally curious about the NARS Pokerface Nail Polish.
