Review: Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick Scarlet

Today I have an item to share with you that I received from one of my best friends, Les.  It's a matte lipstick from the company Ever Bilena, which is a popular cosmetic brand in the Philippines.  This was one of her "I challenge you Ems" product since she knew I was sort of scared to wear bright red or anything red, sort of lipsticks.  The lipstick shades name is Scarlet.


Swirlin' about in the Polish

Today I decided to mess around some more with needle drag or no water marble technique, whichever way you think is best to call it.  I had this urge to toss some glitter upon it as well.  My motivation for nail art lately has been really...lacking.  Have you ever had those moments?

Review: BornPrettyStore 2 Way Waterproof Crayon Eyeliner Gel/Pencil Smoothing Smoky Make Up

Today for my review I have an eyeliner I received from BornPrettyStore that is a 2 Way Waterproof Crayon Eyeliner Gel/Pencil Smoothing Smoky Make Up.  If you never knew that BornPrettyStore also sold cosmetics, well now you do.  They sell a wide range of products:  nail art decoration, eyeshadow, false nail tips, lipstick, phone cases, circle lenses, and BB cream just to name a few.  Their website is very easy to navigate around and you will soon find yourself adding items to your shopping cart.

This eyeliner is from the company Landbis and it is their Long Lasting Liner in black.  It states that this last 24 hours, but I have not tested this product for a whole 24 hours.


Review: BornPrettyStore 2mm Gold Square Stud Rhinestones

Today I have an item to show you that I had received from BornPrettyStore for review purposes.  It's their 2mm Gold Square Stud Rhinestones.  I was super excited when I received these since I have been wanting some square studs for some time now!  BornPrettyStore is such a wonderful online shop that you could pick up items from nail art decorations to makeup, and is one of my favorite shops to look at.

You receive a small packet containing the studs, that is sort of like a Ziploc bag.  I am not sure on how much are exactly within the bag, but you do get a lot!  You could do several nail looks with just one bag, and should last you quite a while as well.


Oh Lazy Nails!

On Friday I ended up changing my nails, and not even sure why.  Just removed the nails I had for Thanksgiving, and I was super wiped from shopping that night.  So I ended up having a lazy moment from being that drained.  

I ended up doing a quick gradient look and placed on a flower water decal that was from a sheet I received from BornPrettyStore.  


To my wonderful followers who celebrate Thanksgiving, I would like to say I hope you have a wonderful one and get your grub on!  For those of you who are going to be doing some Black Friday shopping at the stores, stay safe!  You know how crazy some people could get.  I will be doing my shopping in the comfort of my own home this year.  For some reason I am just not feeling the sales this year & I am not even sure why.

Well anyways since it's been a bit busy lately, I decided just to do something super simple on my nails.

I ended up just doing a simple gem marble sponge on the base and then did a very quick jaguar print over them.  You could find the tutorial for the gem sponge marble technique: HERE.

  • Milani High Speed Fast Dry Nail Lacquer White on the Spot
  • Maybelline Color Show Downtown Brown
  • Sinful Colors Boogie Nights
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Orly Bonder
  • Seche Vite top coat 
So there you have it super simple since it's going to be a busy day. 

Sorry for the quick post but wanted to say "Happy Thanksgiving" to those who check out my blog <3 

Hope you have a great one and good luck shopping!!


Review: Kawayii Eyelash Natural Long from Uniqso

Today I have a review for you on Kawayii Eyelash Natural Long 023 lashes that I had received from Uniqso.  If you never knew that Uniqso carried false natural lashes, now you know.  They actually carry other items from makeup to nail polish.  Not just big eye circle lenses.  So if you're into the big eye looks you could grab your lashes and your lenses in the same place!  One stop shopping I say!

They came inside a case that had a clear lid, which I actually liked.  Because some false lashes don't even have a case if you would like to reuse them again.  So it was good to see that this had a case that you could tuck away after cleaning it up.


Review: BornPrettyStore 12 Colors 3D Steel Ball Caviar Manicure Glitter Nail Art Decoration

Today I have a review to share with you, a product from BornPrettyStore, a 12 Colors 3D Steel Ball Caviar Manicure Glitter Nail Art Decoration.  If you have not heard of BPS yet, you are really missing out.  They offer items from nail art to make-up to even items for your bicycle.  Did I mention it's all free shipping worldwide?  Their prices are cheap even!  So make sure to check them out, if you have not done so already.

How colorful does that look all sitting there together?  You get twelve different colors that are inside these little jars for just $5.41!  Such a great deal really instead of buying one huge jar at a craft store of just one color.  

The colors you get are random though.  So don't expect to get the same exact colors as I did or that they have pictured on their sites.  I really didn't mind that issue at all since they're all still very colorful and easy to use.

Messing with the Acid

It's been awhile since I had used my Sleek iDivine Acid palette.  So I decided to mess with it for my look for the day.  Sleek's Acid palette contains some of my favorite eyeshadows in it.  So brightly pigmented since they're NEON!  Here's a quick face look I did just for fun.


Review: Uniqso I.Fairy Yuri Red

Today I have another pair of big eye circle lenses to share with you from the lovely company Uniqso.  I decided to pick an I.Fairy circle lenses in Yuri Red.  Uniqso is a company that is located in Malaysia, and carry a wonderful various selection of lenses.  They supply prescription and non-prescription lenses.  They also have some cosmetic and nail art products as well.

They supply you with a free lens case, that will be a random color.  The top is transparent enough so that you  could see what lens are inside, which I find very helpful if you have more than one contact/circle lenses.  If you are wondering what the cotton swab is for, it's basically for removing the circle lenses from the tubes.  


Review: Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Collection Sparkle Til Morning

So a while ago I picked up another Wet n Wild Limited Edition palettes: Sparkle Til Morning.  I was curious to see what the rave was about with it.  It took me a while though to get it because I kept going back and forth debating if I really wanted it or not.  I eventually made up my mind and did a total FiS moment on it.

I sort of found it funny how everything basically was neutral sort then all of a sudden BAM one blue eyeshadow pan.  I guess it's mostly because I love color!  But of course you don't have to use this palette to do a look.  You could always mix it up to the way you like to do your eye looks.


My November 2012 Birchbox!

Over the weekend I received my Birchbox for November, and it was three days early.  I was super excited to get it, and worried I might not be so happy with it.  Boy was I wrong!  I loved this box, though minus one thing that made me go meh, but it's all good.  Hits and misses right?

So this month they were focused on the wonderful get your grub on Thanksgiving.  So who is ready to fill their belly up with delish food?  Oh not to mention SHOPPING!  I know I am haha.  But they are also supporting the Art of Elysium and you could check out the Birchbox site to see what items the celebrity supporters picked and buy it.  I love the little logo design above the Art Of Elysium.  It feels so welcoming for a child really.  


Nail Art & Acetone? Why not?!

So this week I used acetone (nail polish remover) to manipulate the nail polish upon my hands.  I finally got around to doing the acetone watercolor nails that I has been on my list for awhile now, and revisited my acid grunge nails as well.

If you are unsure what watercolor nails using nail polish remover is, you could watch a quick tutorial of it: CLICKIE

At first I knew I wanted to do acid grunge nails for sure, but I wasn't sure what colors to use for the watercolor ones.  I kept looking at my nail polishes switching back and forth.  I eventually came to terms and went "K neon polishes it is!"


Marbled away

My nails at the moment were one of those I got lazy and irritated.  I was suppose to do water marble nails and for some reason it just would not go the way I planned it.  The colors I picked would normally work nicely, but when I dipped in my finger it was just horrible!  Put it this way it combined to look grey...I have no clue!  I normally do water marbles fine, but that day was just terrible.  So I decided to just do a dry marble or some know it as a no-water marble.  It's where you basically use a needle/toothpick/etc and drag the nail polish around.  

And even at that I still was not happy with it.  I am being uber picky and lazy at the moment. 


Review: Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Collection - Drinking a Glass of Shine

Today I have a review to show you of Wet n Wild's ColorIcon Eyeshadow Collection in Drinking a Glass of Shine.  My Walgreens had finally put up limited edition palettes from Wet n Wild.

I decided to buy the re-released "I heart Matte" palette which has been re-named as "Drinking a Glass of Shine" since the shops around me never had them.  So I was happy to see this, and knew I had to buy it or I'll end up regretting it lol.

The palette comes with eight pans to achieve several different looks. I like how half of it is colorful while the other half is neutral.  A wonderful palette to bring along for a short trip.  It comes with a sponge tip applicator on one side, and the other side of the applicator has a brush.  I never use the applicators that come with palettes, so I could not give you a statement of how I feel on it.


Review: BornPrettyStore 11 Pieces Hello Kitty & Snow White Nail Art Water Decals

Today I have a wonderful product to show you from BornPrettyStore.  It is an eleven pieces Hello Kitty and Snow White nail art water decals.  
I loved how this had a nice variation of Hello Kitty, Snow White, and flowers.  Oh I almost forgot there is a chubby kitty I am assuming.  It looks more of a cookie jar sort. 


Review: NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Dark Shadows

Awhile ago I received a NYC New York Color IndividualEyes in Dark Shadow with my Influenster VoxBox.  I have honestly never used NYC New York Color eyeshadows at all.  It was something I would always pass up.  I am not even sure if I have seen their IndividualEyes line before.  If I ever look at NYC New York Color it was for their nail polish really.
