Wednesday, June 30, 2010 Jewel Brown Clear contact lenses Review

hi guys! This is the third pair of contact lenses i've tried from and so far they are my favorite! They are very subtle and cute, they just brighten up my eyes. The Jewel Brown Clear contact lenses are mostly clear so your natural eye color shines through. They have a dark rim and then brown patches that make your eyes look like jewels. They were also really comfortable and suitable for wearing in public at any time.

Here are my eyes before:

Here they are with the lenses:

I really like these! They just add a subtle pop :] What do you guys think?

Another Elf Haul/Review

Well, I can't resist low prices so I ordered more stuff from Elf. I wasn't as impressed with some of the products I ordered this time around though. Here's what I got:

Elf Daily Brush Cleaner: I really like the idea of this product, but it just didn't work. I tried spraying it directly on my brushes and spraying it on a towel and then rubbing it on my brushes but it just didn't clean them very well. The scent is quite strong as well, but I don't find it entirely unpleasant.

Eyelash and Brow Wand: I just needed a spooli and got this one since it's only a dollar. It works the way any spooli does, nothing to rant or rave about really.

Natural Lash Kit: I haven't gotten a chance to try these yet, but I thin they're quite cute.

Eyebrow Stencil Kit: I'm in the process of trying to reshape my eyebrows and I bought these to help me keep them even on both sides. My eyebrows are a bit sparse to use it as a plucking guide at the moment; so I've been using it as it was intended to be used, as a stencil to fill in the brows. I rather like these and it comes with four different shapes.

Elf Eyeliner Pens in Plum and Black: I love love love the idea of this. It is so convenient. The plum shade has lived up to all my expectations and I use it more days than not. However the black shade is seriously lacking, it faded within a few hours! I had only a slight grey tint where my eyeliner had once been.

Duo Eye Shadow Cream in Black Licorice: I haven't really worn this throughout the day et, but I have played around with it a bit. I like the shades in this a I think it will make a great base for a smokey eye.

Liquid Eyeliner in Stardust and Black: I ran out of my Mark liquid liner and was hoping that these would be nice replacements. Stardust does what it is supposed to do and the glitter is very pretty. The black is horrid though. The applicator is not pointed, it's all frayed and yucky! I'm not a huge fan of the sponge tip applicators in the first place, but since the one on Stardust was pretty good I expected the same from Black. Pretty disappointed in that one :P

Tinted Moisturizer in Light Beige and Honey: At first I didn't really like these. I thought Honey would be a perfect shade for me because the studio concealer in the same shade was a great match, however this tinted moisturizer is much darker than I expected. After I first tried these I didn't think I would be using them much. Then I had a horrible breakout (seriously I have never in my life had that many spots at once) and started using Light Beige on my face. It worked really well! I got good coverage without feeling like I was wearing a ton of makeup. I'm hoping Honey will work well if/when I get a tan.

Plumping Lip Glaze in Champagne, Fuchsia Fanatic and Fire Coral: I rather like all of these. There isn't anything super special about them, but I like the scent and they don't feel sticky. There are so many colors to choose from too!

Overall I like these products, but will not be buying any of the ELF eyeliners as they seem to be low quality. Except for the plum one that is, I'll be buying that again for sure.

Hope everyone is having a fun summer!

Girlie Nails

Hey guys. I'm sorry I still haven't been posting regularly. I'm having a pretty wretched summer and it seems like I've just been upset the whole time. I haven't even had time to read my all my favorite blogs. Unfortunately stress triggers me to bite my nails, so they are nubbins right now :[

Which is why I bought these darn things to begin with! lol

I figured they would help me stop biting my nails again, but these babies really suck! I literally had these on for less than five minutes and they started to come off. The adhesive doesn't work at all :[

I understand that these are marketed towards younger kids, but I still think the quality is seriously lacking. You can buy less expensive ones that work much better. I purchased these ones because they were the only ones small enough for my tiny nails :P

They are cute though. You might not be able to tell, but the tips are glittery :]

I've found new inspiration to stop biting again though. I got my first MAC nail polish and I found SH Hidden Treasure! I'm going to try to get some more reviews up tomorrow if I get some free time.

Hope everyone is doing well!

New Haircut!

About two weeks ago (i think?) I went to get my hair cut. I chopped off about 6 inches and shortened my layers and bangs. I like it and it's very easy to work with :]

What do y'all think? Do you prefer having long hair or short hair? What kind of hair maintenance do you do?

P.S: Sorry to the Vapur winner! I haven't sent out your package yet :[ but I will get to you soon!

Crazy Dog T-shirt Winner!

Friday, June 11, 2010 Mirrored Silver Contact Lenses review

This is my second review of the lenses carried at , you can read the first here. :]

These Mirrored Silver contact lenses are pretty cool! When I first read the name I instantly thought of The Host by Stephenie Meyer. If you've read the book than you already know that a "soul" invaded body has eyes that reflect in the light. If you haven't read the book (you really should though, it's good!) then I've just told you! :]

By the way...I'm not wearing makeup in this picture, sorry if I scare anyone! :D

The lenses made my eyes a silvery color and they really do catch the light quite nicely. Obviously these are not really for everyday wear (unless you are mighty adventurous), but they are perfect for Halloween or any other type of wild costume party. I'm going to use these lenses in a feminine werewolf costume this year, they're exactly what I was looking for.

Also, these lenses were just as comfortable as the last pair I reviewed and they have a one year life span, so they will still be good when Halloween comes around! I'm so excited for my costume! Even if these lenses aren't really your cup of tea you should check out because they have a huge selection and you'll probably find something that works for you.

So what do you guys think? Would you wear these? Are you getting decked out for Halloween this year?

Tiny MAC Haul

I was at the mall a couple of days ago and stopped by the MAC counter in Macy's. I only picked up two things, but they're two things I really like!

I got an eyeshadow in a shade called Trax. It's a purply-plummy color with gold shimmer. To me it's like an eyeshadow version of OPI Maine-iac Mauve. I wish I hadn't swapped that! Anyways, in my opinion it's a very wearable shade.

I also got the Lazy Day lipstick from the new To The Beach collection. I finally found a lipstick I really like! The color and formula are great. And the packaging is cute :] Anyone else lemming things from this collection?

By the way, I'm sorry I haven't done a nail post in ages! Right now I'm working with nubbins! I was stressed out a bit and bit them off. Then right when they started to get presentable again we had several tornadoes in the area and I was so worried I bit them again! (Luckily everyone I know is safe and my house sustained no damage, but not everyone in the area was so fortunate. I'll probably put photos up of the damage soon.) Anywho, when they grow out again I have some fun polishes to show you guys!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

Crazydogshirts Review & Giveaway

The nice people at gave me the chance to not only review a T-shirt of my choice, but also give one to you guys! First off is the review.

Let me just say right off the bat that I was really impressed with the quality of this shirt. Since everything on their website is really affordable I expected the shirt to be super cute, but not high quality. I thought the fabric would be comparable to the logo t-shirts they sell in the college bookstore. Goodness, I was soooo wrong. And I promise that I'm not just saying that! The shirt is ultra soft! I think this fabric makes a more flattering t-shirt than the ones I usually buy at American Apparel. It's so soft and comfortable to wear, but structured enough that you don't look like a frumpy baglady with all your rolls tumbling everywhere!

Now for the design. Come on, who doesn't love the Golden Girls. I adore that show and my boyfriend is obsessed with Betty White! I think I'm going to order one for him. If Golden Girls isn't quite your cup of tea they have a ton of other designs to choose from. For example they have a precious one with a pug on it, a gnome (how cute!), Power Rangers, and if you're a fan of True Blood they have an awesome Merlotte's tee as well. I will be buying that one when I get my boyfriend the Golden Girls shirt :]

I believe most of the shirts are unisex sizes, but there are some woman's fitted shirts as well. My shirt is a unisex size small for reference.

Alright, now for the exciting part! One of you lucky readers will get a shirt of your choice from their website. Here are the rules:
