EOTD: Stripped Purple Dragons

Ugh its so hard to think of names for EOTDS. I mean, you cant just be like "oh this is a green and blue look!" because eventually you'll do another unique green and blue look and you can't name both posts "GREEN/BLUE LOOK". Blogger won't let you and well, its boring to just name it that LOL. Yeah. okay. Keep going. Here is my EOTD!

Products used:
  • TFSI/NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt as a base
  • Strip by Urban Decay- A silver color- inner corner and inner 1/3 of the lid.
  • Mix of PInk Elephant by Back to the Earth and Wild Child by Meow Cosmetics- middle 1/3 of the lid
  • Northern Lights by Back to the Earth in the outer 1/3 of the lid.
  • Purple Dragon by Back to the Earth to darken the outer 1/3 for more dimension
  • 2 shadows from the Wild Child collection by Meow Cosmetics on the lower lashline.
  • Purple color from the Green Eyes shimmer strips gel liners by Physicians Formula
  • Dejavu Imju fiberwig mascara, 2 coats
YAY! Does anyone want me to a certian type of post? Let me know in the comments section! Also, tomorrow I have a job interview for an on-campus job! WIsh me luck!

EOTD: Parroty eyes hehe

YEAH so i know that I haven't been posting nor commenting much, but it's becuase college is tough. I've been slamming through tons of work all the time. No worries though. I have something really big planned for the beginning of September and I've been working on it for a while now, so be prepared! Yay!
Oh and just a quick note, I think that I will start a project 10 pan as well and document my way through it. I have just too much stuff (at least I think that it's too much LOL. it's probably nothing compared to some of you ladies). The only exception will be MAC's face and body foundation because I actually need to get a foundation to even out my skin!

Onwards to the EOTD!

Oh and by the way, I still hate the new posting thing. I miss the ability to drag the pictures around so that they could sit next to each other. Also this thing is being really bitchy and not letting me uncenter the text SO I HATE POSTING NOW. Honestly, it kinda sucks. I wish that blogspot would make something that was easy for very horrible computer users like me. Do you ladies have issues posting?

Anyway, here are the products I used:

  • TFSI (Thanks Heather! I love it!)
  • Back to the Earth in Dandilion (inner 1/3 and inner corner)
  • Mineral Basics in Gold Shimmer (on top of Dandilion)
  • Back to the Earth in Cat Eyes (middle 1/3)
  • Revlon Matte Shadow in Venetian Blue (great MAC dupe for Electric Eel, but not shimmery. In outer 1/3)
  • Physicians Formula Trio Gel Liner in Green eyes (Black, winged upper liner)
  • L'Oreal HIP in Black (bottom lash line)
  • 2 Meow Shadows that I forgot the name of in the bottom lash line. They were from the Texting collection? Like the names were stuff like "ROFL" and such.
YAY have a nice day ladies!

Review: DejaVu ImJu Fiberwig Mascara in Extra Long

So i know that I haven't been updating recently, but I actually just got to Carnegie Mellon and so I've been bascially off the computer and like hanging out with people you know? BUT today, i took some pictures of my new mascara. This is the Dejavu Imju fiberwig mascara in Extra Long. OKAY a quick question to asian readers. Is this the same Imju FIberwig found in Sephora? I'm actually not sure b/c it says Dejavu on the tube, and its 10 dollars cheaper, but it looks the same and on the back, it says "imju". SO IM NOT SURE if this is the same, but its pretty good as well. PICTURES YAY! OH and you guys, you will be able to see my EOTD hehe.

Bare Lashes

Curled Lashes

1 Coat

2 Coats
I like how it really lengthens my eyelashes after 2 coats. However, it does flake a bit. I did experience a flake going into my eyeball and it stung like CRAAZY. especially since it is a "fiber technology" kinda mascara. Like it makes "tubes" around your eyelashes. It's like the L'Oreal Double Extend kinda tube thingie... It is smudgeproof, not waterproof, and it is easy to remove. I don't find myself like scraping at my eyelashes to get it off. OH another thing I don't like? I hate the stopper. I don't think that it scrapes off all the excess. But I like my wands to be really "clean" and not goopy at all LOL. SO maybe it's just me. Clumpiness? Not really. Unless you go like 3 coats and you go crazy. Just use a comb to comb it out. OH yeah, no volume for this. If you like volume, avoid this mascara because it only gives length. I also found the price to be expensive at 15 dollars. Please note that if it is the same Imju fiberwig found at Sephora, it is 25$. Its expensive
Recommended? If you have the cash, yes, but if you want to skim a few bucks off your budget, then no. The results could be duplicated by Maybellline Define-a Lash in length or some other drugstore mascara. It's not a must have, but I will use it up.

On a side note, does anyone now realize how sucky the picture uploader thing is? Like I'm still using the old version and like.. i hate it now. I used to be able to "drag" the pictures down the post but now i cant. Help?

~Taiwan Beauty Haul~

SO I KNOW that I said that I would post a makeup haul like... earlier but YOU KNOW im really lazy becuase I'm on vacation. Plus for some reason, I can't drag pictures around well so its kind of a hassle. It could be that the computer is pretty old so its harder to use? I dont know. This is my pitifully small haul from Taiwan. I will be doing a review of the
Deja Vu fiberwig mascara. It looks like the ImJu one and it even has the ImJu brand on the back. Does anyone know if they're the same one? I don't think so b/c the tube is slightly different. Well I know that its much cheaper (15 USD compared to ImJu 24 USD in Sephora). But it could just be the customs markup in the USA? Also, I got the Kate gel liner, not Kate Kanebo.

OMFG ladies. Can I tell you something? I wore those Etude House false eyelashes (in the heart shaped box) for the first time to go out dancing, and I COMPLETELY fell in love with false eyelashes. I'm just like HOW did i ever live without them?! I have to get Duo lash glue asap. Anyone want to CP for my birthday that's coming up in september? Email me if you can, thanks, or comment below! Well, I will be back with another haul! It will be a tights haul b/c they're SO CHEAP here in Taiwan! AH!

Insane Taiwan Haul!

Hey girlies! Did you miss me? Well I'm back with this massive Taiwan haul. Honestly, don't ask about the prices or where I got it becuase everything are from small stores or boutiques, so it's not like it's a brand chain. Also, most things are below 500 NTD. Which is around....15 USD. Only 2 things were above that. One was the blue dress with the beige/white polka dotted bow charging in at 800 NTD (25 USD) and real leather boots at 3000 NTD (100 USD). Enjoy! I just got a haircut so pictures tomorrow. Also, I will be making a makeup haul post as well. Reviews when I get back to the states!
