Feeling Springy

23 Jan

 

This outfit makes me happy, I called almost every J.Crew in the state till I found it last spring. It went on sale and sold out fast but finally I got lucky and it became all mine. So I brought it to play.

That summer craving

16 Jan

I dont know about you but I am sure ready for warmer weather, really I just want to wear light layers and not a jacket. I love the cool weather just not so cold I need a jacket. So to feel like its a little warmer I decided to wear my lobster sweater and a bright pink gingham oxford.

L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

28 Oct

 

I am in LOVE with this mascara. Its its volumizing lengthening and more. Its everything I’ve been looking for in a mascara. I have tried so many different ones and none have been like this one.  The 1st image is me without mascara, the rest with it. the wand is amazing I wish I’d taken a picture before I put it on the bottle. It has one side with short bristle which are perfect for your bottom lashes and the other side has long bristles that get shorter as it goes down the wand. It doesn’t clump, my lashes are still soft and not crunchy as some mascaras leave them. If you haven’t tried it I suggest you go get it right away.

5.  The Synthetic Essential Kit brushes from Sigma. I have been wanting these since the day the came out. I have some brushes from them but not these. The reviews on them are amazing.

Thats it I really don’t have a longing for allot of things just a few.  I guess I realized I have allot of stuff and I really need to get rid of some. so there maybe a Instagram sale soon. if you don’t follow me there you should. Username: XOXOAURORA

Rimmel Show off Lip lacquers

5 Aug

I have been wanting these ever since one of my favorite UK YouTubers talked about them. They are the Rimmel Apocalypse Lip Lacquers in the UK and Show Off in the US. But like the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation(still not available in US) they weren’t available the US till recently. I’ve been too every drug store where I live several times, and finally I found them at Walgreens.

I wasn’t sure about them at first. They go on very pigmented and are a little sticky.  Just know a LITTLE goes a long way. The wear is amazing. I picked up 4 colors I know I would wear and not normally wear. I’m trying to getting out of my comfort zone with lip products.

IMG_3046 Big Bang a bright red color. Im going to love this in the winter.

IMG_3047 Apocaliptic a bright pink.

Hope you enjoyed

Loreal Infallible 12 hour Super Slim liquid eyeliner

10 Jul

I have been obsessed with this eyeliner since he first time I tried it a little over a month ago. I normally use the Loreal Liner Intense. But this one gets so close to the lash line and I love that and the fact that its so slim. For me the more natural eyeliner the better. I do have a gap in my eyelashes that if I don’t wear eyeliner you can see the gap. 

Its so easy to use, I feel I have more control with this than any other eyeliner I’ve tried. Its very pigmented which is great. The staying power is amazing. As far as it being a 12 hour liner, I would say it is. I have normal eyelids they are not greasy so it stayed well on me. 

Hope this was helpful if you were looking at buying this eyeliner. I would recommend this over and over again. 

Available at most drug stores, I purchased mine at Target. price range $6-8
