Update and Happy Halloween!!!

Hi everyone,

I am so sorry that I have been slacking from blogging. I just have been really busy with school. Every week I have things that are due, and sometimes there are more than 2 things that are due in the same day. I just been going crazy lately. hee hee

I am so sorry that I should do something special for Halloween. I did make my mom turn into a cat, well, just semi cat like. I just draw some face makeup on her, and she put on a pattern dress and wear the cat ears with a tail. There is a competition at her workplace today. Though I doubt that her makeup will last since she is a dental assistant, wearing mask and working with patients would not make the makeup last long. Hope she won't turn into a monster by the end of the day. Hahhaha. I would show you guys the picture, but we were running late. So sorry guys.

This year I dress my sister up for Toga day at her school. Sadly, I don't have any picture at all that is good quality.

Although that I don't have any tutorials for anything related to Halloween, would you guys like to see tutorials from other gurus on Youtube? I have been into Greek costume lately, so I thought of some perfect videos below for those of you who wants last minute costume, makeup, and hair. Enjoy!!!!

All Lip Products reviews and swatches!!

Now, let moves onto all of the lip products I purchased recently. First, I am sorry that I could not swatch the lip color on my lips because my lips are always dry, the picture just make them look worse. I use my hand, so hope it helps.

First: N.Y.C Liquid Lip Shine
I am so sorry, but I am not opening the one in the package which is Ice Orchid.

These lip shine is like lip glosses more than liquid lipstick, but they are great bargain finds. I love the bottle. The application is sponge tip. Bottles made of cheaper plastic, but definitely durable.
(L) Iced Orchid # 555B; (R) Dusty Rose #549

Middle is Dusty Rose (retail $1.99, sale $.50), the bottom is Wet n' Wild Pink Ice (retail $.99, sale $.65)

Smell so yummy, like caramel vanillaish. 
Love the thick consistency, just a touch of stickiness.
Dusty Rose have coral micro glitter in it, such a lovely corally pink
Goes smoothly on lips
Very shiny on lips, a bit more on the sheer side, but still pigmented. 
Great on nude lipstick
Ok- moisturizing
For cheap lip glosses, it is obviously not long lasting. But if you do not eat and speak a lot, then it stay on great. 
Name is not on the bottle, I totally have to fish out the outside packaging  from the trash can to find the name of it. However, they print the number on the bottle. 

Overall, I never notice these Liquid Lip Shine before, I absolutely love this product. Even for $1.99, I would definitely go back and repurchase this. 

For Wet n' Wild in Pink Ice:
Pink Ice # 528 A  (retail $.99, sale $.65)

I think this lipstick is very interesting. You can see the pic above is a very bright pink because it is taken with flash. On the packaging, the color is actually pinky nude. On the actual product, it is darker pink with a touch magenta undertone. I love it no matter what. 

Please refer to the swatches above. It is the true color. 
Very shiny, not matt at all
Super soft and goes on smoothly
Consistency almost like a lip balm
Stay moisturizing and lasting for about 2-3 hour.   
Cheap packaging, the tube is flimsy, made with cheap plastic. 
Eventhough it is too easy to twist out the product, the cap actually lock it to prevent it from being dented by the cap. 
Not the color on the package or what we see. 
Name not on the package, why? You can print the number, but not the name? 

Overall? I love it. Not because of the price, but because of the product quality. I am looking forward to try out other colors that they have. They have great range of shade. Right now, on sale at Walgreens for $.49. 

Now, Nivea Lip Balm

(L-R) A Kiss of Milk and Honey Natural Defense and Soothing Lip care, A Kiss of Smoothness Hydrating Lip Care SPF 4, A Kiss of Flavor Strawberry Tinted Lip Care SPF 4.  0.17 oz (retail $?, sale $1)


Excellent flavor, strawberry is yummy, the other two is just vanilla smell (honey does have a faint honey smell)
Condition your lips
Long lasting on lip and does not dry up your lips after hours
Glide on smoothly
The strawberry goes on tinted like a sheer gloss, others are just sheer
Easy to twist
Bigger than ordinary Chapstick tube

Nothing...Does what the lip balm does

Overall, I found that I reach for this lip balm more often. I just cannot put it down. I love the strawberry one! Get these while it is on sale. I actually notice that I do not see it at all in Walgreen until this sale. Odd? May be I do not look around as much. I found two of them today at a bottom shelf in a big jar. I had to walk around the cosmetic section 2-3x to find them all. 

EOS Lip Balm

Honeysuckle Honeydew 0.25 oz (retail $3.99, sale: Free)

Isn't this just a little adorable thing? I just absolutely love the way they package this. It just like an egg. I have nothing for cons, so I will just describe to you the product quality. This lip balm is made with 100% natural product and 95% organic. Made with shea butter and jojoba oil. The product is hard so it seem like you are not using any product from it. It just glide on smoothly on the lips. It does not have that usual texture that you get with ordinary lip balm. It make your lips smooth, but does not have the oily texture on the lips. They have three flavors which are: Lemon Drop, Summer Fruit, and the one above. One thing I actually do not like is it kinda has to deal with sanitation. If you open up the product, all products will be expose to germ in the air and you twisting the cap back on, you are holding the bacteria in it. I am not a crazy health freak, so I'm not worry. However, it is something to be conscious about. I would love to try out the other flavors. These are just so cute. I cannot stop looking at it. At Walgreen, you can buy 3 of those flavors for $9.99.

Last but not least, Wet n' Wild New Lip Stick in Think Pink (retail $2.99, sale $1.49)

The color above is the true color of the product. The Lipstick is pink to almost pinky nude. I thought I am going to love it, but I actually surprised at the color when it goes on my lips. 



Pigmented, nicely pinky nude
Goes on smoothly
Matt finish
Long lasting
Condition your lips
Have variety of shades
Cheap for great quality


I don't like it on my lip, it just totally make my lips pale pink (I am just not use to nude lips)
Does not look like what it offered
Name is not on the tube
Need to add gloss for glossy and less pale color. 

Overall, I like it for the quality, but the color is a disappointment. However, I can play around with different color of glosses or mix with another lipstick color. I actually like Dusty Rose on top of this. 

Sorry guys, for the very long post. I want to do all lip products and I do not want to left out any information that I know. If you guys have try this product, please add more information in the comment. Have you guys try any of these products yet? Which one do you want to get? What are you thinking?

Wet n' Wild Nail Polish and Eyeliner

As I said, I will be reviewing and putting swatches of the Wet n' Wild nail polish and eyeliner. So let's start:

Wet n' Wild Wild Shine in Fireworks at Rite Aid ( retail $.99, sale $.65)
This polish is chunky golden glitter. It has not only glitter, but it also has chunky circular flecks. I think it is really pretty. I could not decide between this and Champagne. Champagne is a very pretty shade between gold and bronze, I don't know why I could not put down the gold though. I was kinda disappointed when I swatch Fireworks at home. However, I still think it is such a nice color. This is part of their limited edition Wild Shine collection. I have no idea if it will discontinue or not, however, check out your local Rite Aid to get your hands on all of the shades. I love them all, but I just need one.

3 coats
One coat on three fingers with a purple base (with flash)
2 coats with purple base (no flash) Hate it :P

Chunky glitter (+); (-)
Big brush
Dry fast 1-2 min
Stay on strong, long lasting
Great alone without a color base
2-3 coats are enough
Hate chunky glitter? Then this is NOT for you. I don't really like it either. 
Very ugly looking with color base, may be a lighter base with similar shade. 
Hard to clean. 
Those flecks is semi-useless, can be ugly with 2-3 coats. 

Overall, I like it and hate it. I will probably try to avoid those flecks if I use it for nail art. But use it alone, I still think it great for some occasion. I hate chunky glitter because it take a bit more effort to clean. However, this is great. And with that price, it is too hard to resist. 

4 swipe
2 swipe

Now, onto the white eyeliner....I have been looking for a white eyeliner that are soft and long lasting, but I haven't found one until this Wet n' Wild white eyeliner pencil. Sorry for not taking the pencil picture alone, but it is just an ordinary eyeliner pencil in white. The swatches above is a little bit ugly, but it just show you the quality of it. 

Actually quiet soft
Glide on easier than others cheap liners like N.Y.C
Can stay on waterline to help make our eyes look more awake
Act as a good base eyeshadow
Highlight underneath the brow bone and inner corner of the eyes. 
Cheap (retail $.99 , sale $.65)
Not necessarily long lasting because it not that easy to blend, the consistency is too waxy. So it just stick on 
Stay on waterline, but goes on kinda sheer
If you over blend, it will just disappear.
Cause a tiny bit of irritation if trying to blend on the waterline.

Overall, I like it better than the ones I tried before. My cousin own one from N.Y.C and it does not work on waterline. I am not that satisfied, but it is not bad. I want to find a cheap white eyeliner pencil, but I guess, it is not possible. Still on the mission to find one. I know Jordana also have white eyeliner, but I believe I swatch it once and it is not soft.   

Tell me what you think?  

Shop til U Drop! : Rite Aid

I did a recent post about the sale from Rite Aid, but I just haven't had the time to post some picture about the items that I bought. 
So here it is...


I bought four items from N.Y.C and Wet N' Wild. 

Remember that I told you WnW $.99 products were 3 for $1.95? So I ended up getting the white eyeliner, the nail polish, and that lipstick (swatches and review soon).
The nail polish is from their new wild shine collection. Everything from this collection is glittery and sparkle, I love all, but I just want gold nail polish because I haven't had one in my collection. I should have got another one, but man I am having too much nail polishes and I barely paint my nails. Hee hee.

Also, that week, N.Y.C were BOGO Free. For some people, they also had a coupon in All You magazine from the manufacturer for BOGO. That would make your two products free. Cool, isn't it? I did not have that coupon, but I did print out a $1 off coupon for any N.Y.C products two months ago. I still got both of the glosses for just $.99. Still a crazy bargain right? 

Have you guys tried any of these products? Comment and subscribe please!   

Shop til U Drop! : Walgreen

Hi everyone,

From now on, I will use "Shop til U Drop" as a title for all of my recent shopping trip hauls. It is just something new & if you guys can find any name for this post, please comment below and I will change it up a bit.

Well, today and on Tuesday, I went to Walgreen because there were awesome sale on three lip products. You guys still can get in on this sale and I will tell you guys in a minute. First, I want to thank you Nouveau Cheap for mentioning my blog on her post. Thank you for your support!!! Secondly, if you guys check my sidebar on the "Beauty Related", I have link three of my favorite blogs there to help you bellas get in on beauty sale and cheap beauty products.

Now let's get on with my haul... so the sale for Walgreen this week is $1 Nivea lip balm and EOS lip balm for free.
Here is how it works:
1. Nivea is on sale for $1 and there were a $1 off coupon in last Sunday newspaper. This will let you get it for free. I did not have this coupon because my family only watch news, not reading newspapers. I would buy a newspaper, but it's ok...
2. So for EOS lip balms, they are on sale for $3 and when you buy one, Walgreen will give you back a $3 coupon (Register Reward) to use. So technically, it is FREE!! I have been dying to try out this lip balm because it is super duper cute.

Now what I did is, I bought the EOS lip balm with one Nivea lip balm on Tuesday and I only have to pay around $4 and they print out a $3 coupon for me. Today, I went to Walgreen again to use that coupon because it will be expired on 10/18. I already checked the sale for next week on Make-Up on the Cheap at Walgreen and nothing seem interesting to me.

For today, I bought two more Nivea lip balms and because some Wet n' Wild products were 50%off, I decided to buy their new line of lipstick for just $1.49. Now, what I would like to do is use my $3 to buy another EOS lip blam, but I don't know whether or not they will give me back another $3. Hmm. That would be crazily cool, but I really doubt they let you do that. So that is why I bought those items today.

Now guys...what are you waiting for? Take this opp for a great sale. It will end on Saturday this week, so you still get a lot of time.

I will be posting swatches and review soon for all of the products I bought.

Thanks for reading guys,

I cannot defense myself....

I am so tired of always get yelled at. I am an adult, but I constantly feel like a kid. I am so tired of them always yelling at me. They do not understand me at all and I am not even a bad kid. I listen to them all the time, I never do anything without their permission, and I always do what they want me to do. But once in a while, I just too tired of them. I don't understand why they do not understand me me me me.

I cannot defense myself at all, none of them are on my side. One will just add on with the other to push me and push me. It is not fair, not fair, not fair!!!!! My GOD they got to STOP being like that. Just little things that they push it to make it a major problem. I cannot defense myself because I am not allowed to talk back. I just could not explain to myself because they don't listen.

Just a while ago, I help doing house chores and one of them come home yell at me. She told me why I am being lazy and don't do anything in the house. I just did it, but she don't accept what I did. I don't understand, what does she want? Does she want me to video tape what I did to prove that I did it? Do I have to brag about it? I am not a bad person, I tried to do nice things, to help out, but all I received is bad words coming back to me. All I receive is nothing but scolds, swears toward me. I don't understand, what do you want from me? I don't understand. And then, another one come home and decided to add on to my misery. All he can say is " YOU DON'T DO Anything in this HOUSE? What do you mean that " I DON'T"? I don't get it, do I have to tell you every little thing I did to prove it to you? I AM NOT like that!! I am not that kind of person. I cannot just tell them what I did and I cannot defense myself. Why is life being so unfair to me? Bad luck come to me all the time and I am so tire of it. They keep thinking I am not being responsible. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING About? I am too tire of it. I DID what you want, and no one appreciate it. And then they told me that I never understand how hard they have to work to support me? What are you talking about? I tried to help out but I don't get it. They told me that I got to think about my action, but they never think about what I did. I don't understand it, I am not telling them that they should appreciate what I do, all I want them to do is please understand that I want to help them. They don't SEEEEE it!!!! Why are they always being unfair to me? I always and constantly LOVE THEM....I want to pay back what they did, but all they see is nothing nothing from me. What do I do? I am just so mad and I just cannot explain myself. What do I do? I want to be quite for the rest of my life so I never have to explain myself? But that is not an them it is stupidity, to them it is disrespectful, to them I AM JUST A WORTHLESS person.

Why is every part of my life is so hard? I tried so hard, but I can't never catch up. I never feel confident with myself. I don't know what is my credibility, all I see is I am not worth it. All I see of myself is nothing. I am struggling in school but no one can understand that it is so hard for me to compete, I am not being appreciated at home. I just feel so numb, everything from me is useless. Is that what I deserved? I am never feel Happy, there are so much pressure. I don't know what to do. I feel I am being left behind and life just goes on for the others....

Please support me my believer, I believe in you, and please help me get through the rough roads ahead of me.

Cry silently.......
