*taps mic* Hello? Is this thing on? Anyone still listening?
I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I’ve done an actual, honest-to-Jim post. I’m still trying to catch up with school stuff but I found a bit of time, so consider this a half-post, or a three-quarter-post if you’re feeling particularly generous.
I hung out with my best friend, Maggie, last weekend and we decided to play around with makeup, as girls do. She didn’t have any base on hand with her, and although I have a lot of mismatched foundations (a plethora, some might say…), we’re so different in skintone that none of mine even remotely fit her. (Plus I’ve got golden undertones whereas she has pink.)
I did, however, have a concealer which matched her almost exactly, so I used that to cover up her spots and to even out her tone.
There are so many holidays in this coming week, I was contemplating whether I wanted to do a Valentine’s Day look or a Chinese New Year look; I figured since everyone and their mother does a pink/red/white Valentine’s eye, I’d do something for Chinese New Year instead. 😛 Originally, I’d planned for this to be … Continue reading

I took swatches of all the shades, so those will be up soon, but of course … Continue reading
I recently bought Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy for the first time and I can’t believe it took me this long to jump on the bandwagon! For those of you unfamiliar with it, Pixie Epoxy is a foiling medium great for glittery and/or shimmery shadows — besides intensifying the color, it provides a sticky base for glitter … Continue reading
So, on Saturday, I went to New Orleans for Wizard World’s Comic-Con. There were a lot of celebrities in attendance, such as most of the cast of Star Trek: TNG (Patrick Stewart was scheduled, but cancelled due to work deadlines), Sean Patrick Flanery, Kevin Sorbo, Adrienne Curry and The Walking Dead castmembers Norman Reedus (Daryl), … Continue reading
I ordered these Holika Holika lashes in 06 from Pretty & Cute my first time purchasing. I loved that they were a criss-cross design, with longer, flared ends. I thought it’d be a really nice dramatic look. I did notice, however, after I wore them once that they seemed uneven. After looking closely at them … Continue reading
