Makeup Storage Tips & Tricks

Image
Hello Everyone, 
So this post is going to talk all about Makeup storage & for anyone that owns a lot of makeup (or even a little) you have to store it correctly and let everything have it's place. 
So make sure your products are in a ordered arrangement, I like to have Lipstick's & lipglosses, Lip Liner & Stains together. Eye primer's, eyeshadow's, liners & mascara's together & so on, for the face products even Nail polish in color order.
This make it much easier to find everything & your less likely to lose something or miss place it, which was always my problem some time ago.


The first example I have is this 3 stack plastic set of draws, that you can find at Office supply shops or Target, I picked my up for around $25, but prices will vary.
These store a lot of makeup, I mean TONES, the first 2 draws contain most of my eye products.
(The last draw is just some gaming things to do with my Wii & Xbox) You can store things on top of this set of…

BLOG REVIEW - Max Factor VS Covergirl Lipsticks

Image
Hello Everyone, 
If you watched my Drugstore Haul video I posted about 9 days ago you would have seen me mention & show a new lipstick released by Max Factor called Color Elixir Lipstick, now Max Factor claim that these lipsticks will make your lips soft, smooth & more health looking within 7 days of wear. They also claim to be bold color, long wearing & waxed based lipsticks, now this sounded a lot like the Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks, that I love. 
When I was researching this I found that Max Factor own Covergirl is well which, when I think about it would explain some of the things I own from both brands that claim the same things & look the same like the Covergirl lash Blast & the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara. Both the same but yet I did still find a difference, not in the brush or the packaging but the formula was a little less thickening in the max Factor one then the Covergirl lash Blast mascara, but this a different review for another day :)

VLOG: OMG My Hair & HAUL: Jewelry & Makeup 2011

Image
Hello Everyone, 
WOW, so this is an exciting video for me :)
I have COMPLETELY change my Hair & Look, & I personally Love it.
I really, really wanted something Fresh, New & just changing everything up completely for me.
I had been looking/managing at long hair for Years & Years. And I really wanted to reinvent my look to start a fresh, also good to get out of my comfort zone, to try something different. So I colored it "soft Black" & cut it to the length of my chin, when I had finished cutting it there was so much hair, since it did reach to the bottom of my bra strap before. But this is SO less tangled & hassle free to style, it now takes me 5-10 mins, where as before any where up to an hour for curling, straightening or formal up-do's. 
The "soft Black" / "Very Deep Brown" also softness the look done a little too, which is something I had wanted is well.
Let me know what you think?!


I also went shopping Yesterday too, before going t…

Crush Cosmetics - Wet N' Wild Makeup Haul

Image
Hi Everyone, 
So Crush Cosmetics was having a 20% off sale on all Wet N' Wild cosmetics items a few days back, & I just could not let the opportunity go buy. So I brought a few little things for Wet N' Wild only, I ended up buying 2 Eyeshadow Trio's in 332 I'm Feeling Retro & 384 On Cloud Nine. I also brought a Lipstick in 525D Nuveau Pink & a Blush in 831 Pearlescent Pink. 



Staring with the Eyeshadow, now it's safe to say I love these Wet N' Wild Trio's. I have been a long time user of Wet N' Wild eyeshadows, & I have been rarely disappointed by them.


The first Trio I got was I'm Feeling Retro, it's a beautiful trio containing a very shimmery White shade labeled Browbone, next shade labeled Crease is a stunning blue with slight sliver sparkles in it, & lastly labeled Eyelid is a Purple color with a domechorme effect of a blue running though it, this shade reminds me a lot of MAC Star's N Rockets, which is also a personal fa…
