Wow for awhile I was addicted to making a post everyday! But this post will have more than enough pics to make up for missing several days hehe ^_^
First want to do a review on Forever 21 eyeliner - this is from the beauty line called "Love & Beauty". I give it 5 stars!!! It cost me $2.99 online.. YAY for bargain! I love the felt tip applicator - it makes application SO easy, and you can apply it VERY lightly. All other ones I've tried took much longer to apply, and I had to apply more pressure (not good for your eyes!). And -- this DOES NOT smudge!!! I did a test too, by putting the liner on my hand, then vigorously rubbing for 10 seconds:
applied on hand
liner on my hand AFTER rubbing it vigorously for 10 seconds!! NO SMUDGE YIPPEE!
particles on the finger that rubbed the liner..as you can see, some flaked off, BUT it did not smudge! BIG plus for me ^_^
Pic taken at END of the day. No panda eyes for me! Excuse all the sunspots etc.. been trying to let my skin breathe..
Another pic at END of the day.
Here are the other brands I currently have:
ALL except the N.Y.C. one smudge terribly, making me look like a sad and angry panda >.<>
And, what pisses me off, I paid a lot (well, to me it is!) of $$ for the Bobbi, and the Benefit... and the Bobbi one especially pisses me off! $25 and you dry up on me, and are hard to apply. WHAT.THE.EFFFFFFF $@*&^(!?!?! I have lost faith in pricey makeup counters.. they continually disappoint me :(
Brands I've tried in the past that smudged (and not pictured above):
*Shiseido (such a disappointment, cuz I thot they'd make for Asians.. you know how we get panda eyes!!)
*Revlon Colorstay (works for my sister, but not me)
K, enough about that. Clearly I like the liner haha.
Oooh on Saturday, I opened my mailbox to get a lovely surprise from Nikki! My first ever love package ^o^ ! THANK YOU Nikki you are truly a sweetheart, and can't wait for lunch in March :)
Hehe we're chingoos!!
See the 2 BB cream samples?!?? I've never tried BB cream.. I'm torn between holding on to them and actually trying them out. And my oh my look at all the HK!!
And finally, I have to put up food pics from a dinner my good friend Mary hosted. She was my sponsor when I went through RCIA (rite to enter Catholic church.. I was baptized but never received Confirmation or Eucharist). She is a wonderful hostess, something I hope to be one day when I have dinner parties!
South American beef + hominy stew, with yogurt, cilantro and lime. We each had our own guacamole bowl + chips too ^_^ It was mm mm gooooood lol.
