Photo an Hour // 21.03.2015

Monday, March 23, 2015

11:30am / I actually woke up before this shot and ate breafast but after breakfast I decided to sleep a bit more and when I woke up I decided to start a 'Photo an Hour'.
12:30pm / My sister driving to the shopping mall.
13:30pm / Taking a look around H&M.
14:30pm / Burger King for lunch.
15:30pm / There was a great deal in Bath & Body Works. We got buy 3 get 3 free! And we also bought a candle. You know how much I love their candles.
16:30pm / Back at home and in my room just chillin.
17:30-19:30pm / We decided to watch a movie and unfortunately I forgot to take photos until it ended which is why I'm missing two hours :/
20:30pm / Reading a book in bed.

I stayed up a little bit more after reading and did a bit studying. It lasted longer than I had imagined but it's okay. I'm trying to be a better planner with my life and my blog these days. I'm considering a change in my blog name but seems like it's a risky thing to do. I'm looking for people who understand how to handle that sort of thing so I can get a few pointers. Anyways I hope you enjoyed looking into a day of my life :) See you later.

Lime Crime Lipstick Review // Triple The Fun

Monday, March 16, 2015

Hey guys, how's it going? I truly hope I'm not boring you with reviews but I have started to enjoy doing makeup more than I usually do so this led me to talk more about it. I'm still keeping it simple but I'm also trying out new things. These three lipsticks were included in the giveaway that I had won recently, which I mentioned on my last post. So once I recieved them I immediatly tried them out and of course snapped a few photos and here I am.

As you will see below I have arranged a few photos to show you guys how these three colors look like applied on lips. They probably aren't 100% like how they are in reality but I'm hoping it can give you guys an idea. I have heard of Lime Crime before and I have always been impressed with the range of colors they provided but as I don't really go for the expensive choice when it comes to makeup, I have never really considered getting myself one of these. Now that I have three I will definitely use the crap out of them. As it is also stated on their website their lipsticks are "bold, opaque and recklessly loaded with pigment" and they have the cutest packaging. I think maybe the price could be a bit cheaper but I guess if you want a good quality products you have to consider paying a bit more than what you usually do.
Airborne Unicorn: This shade in my opinion is definitely what Lime Crime is all about. It's a shade to go for if you're feeling a need of change from the regular pink or red ones. It's a hard color to pull off but if you think you can then you will definitely enjoy this. I don't think I can pull it off as well as many others would but I'm glad to have this in my little collection of lipsticks.
Countessa Flourescent: When it comes to lipstick that are pink I'm always a little worried. The reason for that is I don't think it looks good on me. I would still wear it but it won't make me feel as confident as how I feel when I put on darker shades. With this one I feel a bit more confident considering the fact that it's rich in color so it fills my lips quite nicely. If you're not like me and you love a good pink shade then look into this one, you might like it.
Glamour 101: Oh la la! I love a good red lipstick and this definitely makes it to the top. This won my heart over in a second. I have been using it everyday and I definitely don't want it to end but I know that day will come and I will be sad when it does. If you want a good red lipstick I recommend this one.

Have you ever tried Lime Crime? What are your thoughts?

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Review

Sunday, March 8, 2015

Hey guys! So I kind of messed up with my blog planning this year and I feel terrible about it. I guess being on vacation from January till the middle of last month got me super lazy. But now that phase is over because I've got classes, assignments and other things that keep me busy as well as my blog. And while I haven't been around here you've been amazing at being the best readers. Thanks for sticking around and commenting :)

Recently, I got an email from Emi from Emi Unicorn saying I had won a giveaway that she held a while back. I'm not that lucky with this sort of thing so of course I was super thrilled that I had won. Emi has the prettiest pastel purple hair and she gives off a super positive vibe. I enjoy reading her amazing blog, you should definitely check it out.

One of the things in the giveaway was this Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Before I tried it I had already fallen in love with it because of the way it looked. As you can see it's a very pretty shade of pink all over, even with the letters. Simple designs will always have my attention. When applying the mascara I noticed that it adds a lot of volume even on the first coat. Even though I like being simple I decided I'd try something new and do one more coat. My lashes looked amazing. I didn't even know my lashes could look so bold because they aren't that long and full. I was happy with the result. Second thing I noticed is that at the end of the day I had a bit of smudge under my eyes. It wasn't much though so I didn't make anything of it but after seeing a couple of reviews on their website from some people I thought I'd mention it. But my sister did not have a problem with it what so ever. I wasn't much of a mascara person until this month I think and right when I was thinking of buying one for myself this appeared on my door step. For me something like this is definitely pricey so I'm going to make the best of it while it lasts. If in the future I decided to spend a bit more than I usually do on make-up I will purchase this again.

What is the one mascara you always go back to? I definitely need recommendations.
