OOTD: Versatile Look

Happy Holidays! I'm so stuffed and jolly right now :)  I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday too ^_^  The other day I spent some time filming three videos and this is the last of the three.  It's a short outfit of the day video.  I don't think I've really talked about my style or the way I dress much yet so this is a good place to start right? I'm sitting here right now trying to compare my style to one single person and I realize that I don't have a specific fashion icon that I look up to.  I think I take a little bit of inspiration from different celebrities, bloggers, and my own taste.  I'm quite a petite girl so that is also something that I always have to put into consideration...which can be extremely difficult sometimes.  There are a lot of cuts and designs that tends to make me look even more petite.  I have always been into business and professional look because I want to be a no-nonsense, strong, and kick ass kind of woman.  I hope someday I will be :)

Product Review: La Femme Blushes

Hey everyone! This entry is extremely late, actually I think it might a two or three sorry everyone! >_<  I bought this La Femme Blush palette a couple months ago during the summer when I watched a review video from gossmakeupartist.  I personally think these blushes are amazing and highly pigmented, to point where to it might be wayyyy too pigmented.  The only downfall that I found to these blushes is the fallout of the blush and it is very powdery.  The next best thing about these blushes is their price.  I'm pretty there are other places to purchase these blushes but I went to Makeup Mania.  Each blush costed about $2.50 (What a steal!!) I'll link their website below.

Colors: (Left to Right) Cinnabar, Coral, Coral Spice, Soft Beige, Heather, Red, Mandarin Red, Pink Velvet, Mocha, Peach, Peach Sparkle, and Terracotta

Makeup Tutorial: Holiday Look

Hey girlies and guylies :) Happy Holidays to you all. I hope you have a great time with family and friends this holiday and for college students, welcome home! It's good to have my sister home again....sort of. Haha I'm just kidding.  Since the festivities are just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to do a holiday look.  I have worn this look before and it's super super simple to do.  I spent the whole day filming and editing three videos.  This is the first one and I forgot how long it's been since I filmed a video in my living :) Hope you guys like it!

Product Review: Elle Bang Confidential Brushes

A while back, Elle Bang was having a sale on many of their brush products.  I never heard about them before so I decided to pick up the All Natural 12 Piece Set.  This has been the biggest brush regret purchase so far for me.  I love raving about makeup products but there really isn't a lot of good that I can say for these brushes. On the good side, the shipping was very fast and customer service was decent.  I really appreciated how Elle Bang was willing to remedy the situation by sending me replacement brushes but I was still unhappy with the product itself in the end.

So to start, I ordered the All Natural 12 Piece Set and when I received my order I was missing several brushes.  Including, a contour brush, a concealer brush, and also the lip brush.  I didn't realize that I did not receive the lip brush until later on when I checked out the website again.  The foundation brush was synthetic too which I don't understand because they were all suppose to be natural.  All of the brushes shed like crazy, I think I almost cried from frustration when I used them on my face.  I contacted the founder of Elle Bang through their Facebook page because I was unable to email or call them. She answered quickly and was very helpful.  She sent me replacement brushes but I didn't like them any better.  I won't be purchasing any Ellen Bang products anytime soon but I do appreciate the customer service.
