August's Top 5

Hello again readers~

It's that time of the month (no, not THAT time of the month), August's Top 5!


AUGUST'S TOP 5:
  1. Sassy Legs Hair Remover Pads: These actually don't remove hair. At all. Haha, though, they do leave whatever areas you use them on, incredibly soft. Now, as I've posted before, I had dry, flaky skin on my brow bone. It was super gross, make me look aged, and my foundation made it look ever grosser! I tried using an emery board on it earlier this month, but it was too harsh, and since I was messing with these on my arm, I tried it on the dry skin. These might not be able to remove hair, but they're WONDERFUL at gently buffering away dead skin, and leaving silky, smooth-as-a-baby's-bottom, skin behind. Glad I gave these a second chance.
  2. Maybelline Falsies Mascara: This. Is. My. Favorite. Mascara. Ever. It doesn't really run on me, and unless I'm DYING of sweat, it doesn't leave a 'look at me I'm a raccoon!' effect under my eyes! They keep my lashes looking curled, and it makes them stand out too! It's wonderful, since I have straight, short eyelashes.
  3. Gold Mustache Necklace: Found this little beauty at Forever21 for about 6 dollars, and am SO glad I did. Definitely one of my 'hipster' pieces. I have gotten a few compliments on it, asked where I got it, etc. Unfortunately, the only way to get one is hope they still have it in stock in the store, since they don't sell it online. Similar ones like this, cost over 20! So be wary if you are looking for one!
  4. China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat: And THIS is my favorite top coat, of all time. I am so impatient, it's not even funny, but if you put this over a semi-dry layer, and wait a minute (really thirty seconds, but I wait extra just because) they feel dry to the touch (with your skin, not your nails)! Though I wouldn't advise doing something rough to your nails, you can go about your day like showering, typing, writing, etc and not have to worry about your nails messing up. I just love it~
  5. Witch Hazel: I wasn't really that happy with this... at first. XD I got it, because I heard it was a good cleanser/toner, and it was cheap! (about 2 dollars!) I usually used a Sea Breeze astringent, but the bottle is smaller than this, and costs over 4 dollars! Though first using it, I hated it, because it's a natural scent, and I wasn't used to it, and it was a little gross smelling, but it did such a good job, I was willing to work with it a bit. I'm glad I did. It keeps my skin clean, gets rid of the excess dirt/makeup/gross unmentionables that might have been left on my face after washing it. As for the smell? Wears off in a few short minutes, so that's not even a huge concern anymore. It's perfect if you have normal to oily skin, as it helps you get rid of the excess oil.

First Day of School, OOTD, and NOTD post.

Hello again readers!

Today I started my second year of college! I was a little nervous to be going again, but I do love the professor I have on Mondays and Wednesdays (I had him last Spring), and it's going to be an interesting year! I didn't have a lot of time to get ready this morning (I woke up with only a half hour, and I spent half of that time on Facebook...) but luckily today was an easy day for my look.


Just my 'first day of school shirt' (have worn it on the first day every year since I was a Junior in High School), with my black skinny jeans, and converse. I tied my hair up and put a clip on it, because I wanted it simple, and didn't really feel like straightening it. (Also, I apologize for the background... I've been cleaning my room, and had to stop on a dime last night as to not bother everyone in my house. TAT)

For my face, was almost the bare minimum. Concealer for my dark circles, foundation to even my skin tone, eyeshadow cream, eyeliner, and mascara. If I only had 10 minutes I would've skipped on the eyeliner and eyeshadow.

Lazy day, lazy post. (^^;;) I'm going to wrap it up with my nail post!


Base coat, China Glaze in Turned up Turquoise (Neon), and China Glaze Fast Forward Fast-Dry Top Coat. I really do love this color, and couldn't stop looking at it! @.@

Thanks for reading!

July's Top 5

Hello again readers~

So July is officially over! (TAT) Now I only have a few more weeks until classes start again. Oh well, I'll just have to make the best of it yeah? Onto what this post is REALLY about.


(sorry, blogger flipped my photo -_-)

JULY'S TOP 5

1.) E.L.F Zit Zapper: I've used this product over a hundred times, and I've barely made a dent! It helps get rid of those pesky zits that I want gone fast too! It was WELL worth the dollar I spent on it!

2.) "Hipster" Glasses: I definitely want a sturdier pair of these to wear as my prescription glasses, and will probably wear these even if I move on to contacts! I just like the way they look on me.

3.) False Eyelashes No. 102: Natural, and they make me look like I actually have eyelashes. What's not to love?

4.) Clean & Clear Finishes Mattifying Cleanser: I. LOVE. THIS. PRODUCT. I don't really like my face, since I get super oily in my T-Zone throughout the day, but if I wash my face with this in the morning, it doesn't get nearly as bad! It keeps me looking fresh and matte all day. Exception is if I sweat really really bad haha.

5.) Wet n' Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 900B Pink Sugar: I was so happy when I found this lipstick. I've been looking for a nice nude lipstick, and this is just perfect for me!

Makes my lips go from this:
