Tarte Eye Lash Curlers.




Let me just say this now, I love Tarte. Just like Nars, I find that their products never truly disappoint me and they're totally worth the money. I wanted a new eye lash curler because I was getting bored of my old one and I didn't really like it very much. I went to Sephora and thought I should give this baby a try since one of my good girlfriend told me how much she loved it. And I love it too.


My previous eye lash curler by Lancome wasn’t all that bad but I found it to be painful whenever I tried to give my lash a few good curls. Tarte’s Picture Perfect Eyelash curler, as advised, is an easy painless curling tool - especially for $15 dollars. The packing for this curler is gorgeous, a classic gold look with purple handles and rubber. I think the handles are the best feature for this curler; it makes it a lot easier to hold because I found my other curler to hurt or simply just be a burden for me. No more drama with getting my fingers caught in the handles! Tarte’s curler is small size, so I put it in my school bag on those days where I woke up too late. The size of the curler is also perfect for me because it’s painless and fits my eye shape perfectly. I find that this eye lash curler curls upwards and fits the average eye size/shape. I would highly recommend this eye lash curler. If you have asian eyes, you may want to check how this may suit you in stores instead of buying it online.

MAC Line Up



Hey everyone. It's been a crazy month for me and this month will be too. This is my last month of school, my birthday month, and my 1 year blogging birthday! There's so many things that are going on during this month and my feelings are all over the place. Thank you all for being patient with me, it's quiet hard to manage my blog and school at the same time. I will be having a one year give away coming very soon! 

Rebel - You can say that I'm still feelin' vampy... MAC's Rebel is a mid-toned cream plum. Rebel is a satin finish that doesn't wear off too well. After a few hours of wear, it can make my lips peel or make my lips look discolored. Whenever I use this, I must remember to re-apply it after 2 hours. Rebel is also a permanent shade, so you'll never have to worry about this color being discontinued or never coming back. Rebel is just one of those colors that has a scary bullet but once applied to the lip, it looks a lot more suitable. It is a lot lighter than I thought it would be and at first I wasn't a fan. I was too into natural colors like Creme Cup to ever want such a dark plum-ish lipstick. This is still one of my favorite lips to wear during the colder months because it suits all of my dark colored outfits. It's surprisingly a big favorite of mine.

Diva - MAC Diva is a beautiful dark burgundy red that has a matte finish.  It's not an intense dark-red but it definitely leaves an impression on my face; I find this color too sexy. I find this color pretty comfortable to wear without drying or peeling it my lips. I do find that it can cling to dry spots and emphasize them if I don't make sure to apply some type of lip plum prior application. DIVA seems to lasts hours my lips without fading away like Rebel tends to do, so I normally grab this lipstick.

Creme Cup - Creme Cup is a blue-toned pale pink that is a huge crowd favorite. It is a cremesheen so expect this lipstick to have a lovely shine. This is one of MAC's top sellers and it should be. It's such a lovely nude pink that's great for every day wear. It doesn't require a lot of maintenance through out the day but it can make your teeth look a little yellow.

Media - Is a deep-dark red wine-ish color that works well on skin tones. It has a beautiful satin and lustre finish that makes this lip color unique and appealing. For some reason, I like to tap this on lightly on my lips because it's extremely pigmented- I rather work up then put too much on. It's one of my favorite colors to wear with nude or light colors.

Kinda Sexy - Has a beautiful matte finish; I tend to alternate between this and Creme Cup depending on if I want a matte or cremesheen finish. This does stick to dry patches a lot more then Creme Cup does so make sure you moisturize or scrub before you apply this. This is such a beautiful color because it's a warm natural pink that can be truly warn every single day.
