Last Part of My Holiday Haul with NYX and Milani Swatches.

Hey girlies, how are you guys today~~~This post is going to be the last part of my holiday cosmetic haul...i don't usually post hual posts unless i feel like i really bought alot of items and people might be interested in them...This part is mainly what i've purchased from Cherry Culture awhile back, from some bits and pieces from Sephora and the Drug Store...i hope you guys like this post, and find the info and swatches useful...

PS if you only want to see Swatches, Just Scroll Down to the Bottom of the post ^_^

Here is everything that I've acquired
Alot of items right???But i think i won't be making too much purchase after this
And here is the list:
EyeShadow in Cherry, Rust, and Odyssey
Blush in Desert Rose
Jumbo Pencil in French Fries and Iced Mocha
Eyeshadow in Blue Lagoon
Blush in Fantastico Mauve and Corallina.
Eyeshadow in Galaxy(Green), OuterSapce(Purple), Orion(Bronze), and ShootingStar(Pink)
Infaillible Colour Eyeshadow in Golen Mahogany and Black Onyx
Urban Decay 27/7 Shadow Pencil Stash
Sephora Prisma Chrome EyeSahdow in Gold Reflection and Burgund Gem

That pretty much sums up all my beauty related purchases during the month of December and early January..please don't think i've bought everything in one day...that's just insane...I didn't swatch evrything in this post, because i dislike posts that are too long..or maybe im just getting lazier..also because i'm always late on the make up trend, so by the time my posts are up, there are hundreds of swatches already made...however, if you guys want to see specific swatches, or want me to review specific items/brands let me know down in the comment section, i will get back to you as soon as i can..

Now here are the items that i did Swatch:
Only NYX and Milani, since i think alot people like these 2 brand..
And here are the Swatches:
I like all the colours that I bought
Now I luv the consistency of the NYX shadows, they are very silky and soft, and have amazing pigmentation, but abit powdery. The NYX blush on the other hand is very good, very pigmented, not powdery at all, i've used it a couple times and i have to say apply with a light hand because it's a very intense colour. The Milani eyeshadow and blushes have almost the same kind of texture, with the blush being a bit softer. They are very pigmented, with the blush colour being slightly better than the eyeshadow. But all of them are very shimmery, especially the blush. While the eyeshadow has less fallout, the blush has alot of fallout, so be careful when u are using it. In General though, i like both brand...but i feel that if you want a more glow-ey look then go for Milani because their baked blush will give u that glow-ey effects. but if you want to go for a more matte/satin finish, then go the NYX blush, because it has no shimmer, just bit of a sheen/satin finish to it...

Anyways this concludes the last part of my holiday haul posts...i hope you guys like them, and find the swatches useful as your reference..again, if you have any questions of request, don't hesitate to ask, i will gladly answer all of them.
In the meantime i hope that your week is going well, and i will post again very soon

As Always, with Lotsa Luv and XOXO

Massive Lippie Swatches With DrugStore Haul

Hello to all my lovely readers, how are you guys today~~~This is yet another haul post...like i stated in my previous post, since I've bought quite a bit, i can't feature all of them in one post, that would just be too long, so instead im gonna break them in to 3...So this is the Second Part...

So this post is mainly all the lippies i got over the holiday season...there are quite a few of them..also with some Wet n Wild palette that i grabbed at wal-mart. I didn`t do swatches for the WnW because there are sooo many of them out there whether on youtube and by many other bloggers...but if you guys still prefer full swatches let me know..

PS if u are only interested in the swatches, just scroll down to the bottom ^_^

So Here is what I`ve bought:
The lippies Up Close

And These
alot of Lippies..hehe
So here is the Long List:
Wet N Wild:
Blue had me at Hello
 Petal Pusher
Sweet as Candy
ColorBurst Lip Butter in Cupcake 055
ColorBurst Lipstick in Baby Pink 020
Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire&Ice 720
Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fuchsia Fusion 657
Moon Drops Lipsticks In Sugar Poppy 716
Black Lable Lipstick in Heather BLL 182
Matte Lipstick in Audrey MLS 20
Round Lipgloss in True Red RLG 01
Soft Matte Lipcream in Addis Ababa SMLC 07
Colour Riche Balm in Heavenly Berry 318
Sephora Rouge in Mr. Lover 1202B R10

So ya as you guys can see i bought alot of Lippies...i think im going through a lippie phase at the moment..>_< While i havent wore some of them, I did tried on a few..and i have to say my favorites are :NYX True Red LipGloss, Sephora Rouge Mr. Lover And the L'oreal Colour Riche Balm Heavenly Berry.

Anyways i will let the swatch speak for themselves:
All those Pretty Colours
Aren't They Nice~~~
So ya there you have it all the swatches of them lippies...Now if you ask me why i prefer the L'oreal ColourRiche Balm over the Ever so Popular Revlon ColorBurst Lipbutters, i will tell you that, although L'oreal one is very sheer, but it stays for a long period of time, and it really moisturizes ur lips..But the Revlon ones even though it is much more pigmented, the colour itself looks good in the tube, but very bad on my lips...and because it its a lip butter, if you are not careful it is very easy to smoosh the lipstick because it is too creamy...

I actually really love the NYX True Red Lipgloss..it is super pigmented, and even if applied alone without a red lipstick, it still looks very nice, and still is VERY pigmented... 

Anyways, i hope you guys enjoy this post and the swatches, if you have any questions, let me know down in the comment section..if you want to request anything review and whatnots let me know i'll get back to you guys as soon as i can.
So in the meantime, i hope guys have a wonderful week ahead

as always, with lotsa luv and xoxo.

Xmas Sasa haul + My Gift from My Bff + My first Nars Product

Hi to all my lovely readers, how are you guys??? Aren't glad the weekend is almost upon us...I'm always happy when it is the weekend, b/c it means i get to spend more time with my family and friends.

I actually have a haul post today, since my order from Sasa.com finally arrived today, I thought i'd show you guys my purchases...A while back i think it was Dec 28th? Sasa.com was having a great sale, alot of items were 90-50% off, and not just regular drugstore brand, they had alot of big name brand on sale...Also at the same time they had a promotion that once u spend more than 15USD it is free shipping to North America... So I took this opportunity, and bought a few skincare items that i normally wouldn't have...overrall i spend less than 80 dollars for everything, so i though it is quite a bargain

Here is the picture of everything i ordered

So here is what i bought:
Sasatinnie Dolly eyeshadow Palette in 04 Dazzling Blue
Jealousness Falsies in Js-506
Methode Swiss Purifying Cream Ultra Moisture
SK-II Cellumination Mask in Lotion x 2
Peter Thomas Roth Aloe Tonis Mist
Haruhada Vitamin C Activator x 2
You also get to Choose 2 free samples which i Chose
Suisse Cellular Revitalizing Eye Mask
Sasa Cosmetic Puff(cotton pad)

Out of all the items i bought, im most excited about is the Sk-II products. For those you who are unfamiliar with the brand, it is under P&G, and it originated from Japan...and Its Facial Treatment Essence is the most popular product from the brand. Every SK-II product contains pitera, which is their secret ingredient: a type of yeast that originated from rice-fermentation..Im not clear of the science stuff..but the brand has a HUGE following in East Asian countries...and numerous well known celebrity are fans of the brand. Once i get more use out of the products i will do a more detailed review...From the Official Sk-II website here is the product Description: "The latest product launch from the Cellumination family, New SK-II Cellumination Mask-In Lotion is the first step to achieving the way to a glowing complexion. This unique everyday pre-lotion offers mask-like hydration benefits. One application delivers immediate and long-lasting hydration to the skin, similar to the effects of using a substrate mask."

Im also very curious about the Methode Swiss Cream, because it claims that the products has both detox effects as well as deeply hydrate and moisturize. Normally i wouldn't buy from this particular brand because it is quite expensive, but it was on sale for a very reasonable price, so i thought why not, if it doesn't work i'll just give it to the hubby...^_^...

On another note, my Bff had just returned to Canada, and she brought me some unexpected present...I've known her since high school, and we've being Bff ever since. She works mostly in the States, so i ask her to brought me some stuff that i bought from cherry culture which i will show in a separate post..because if i include everything in this post, it's gonna be too long...So when she got back, she not brought me my order, but some surprise present that i wasn't expecting.

Isn't She Sweet~~~i luv her
So here is what she got me:
L'oreal Youth Code Serum Intense
Armani Code Perfume
Nars Hanamichi Eyeshadow palette
Hello Kitty Nail Deco Pen
Hello Kitty Lipgloss Keychain

Anyways, the only product that i ask for was the L'oreal Youth Code Serum...ive actually bought another one, and have being using it...once i get more use out of it, i will do a review...But ya how incredible is she...i mean i luv her to bits...in all honestly i never expected this much stuff, so when she showed me my jaw dropped...If she reads this which she does sometimes i wanna say thank you again for being such a dear friend to me...If you guys want to see a swatch of the Nars Palette please let me know down in the comment section...anyways about the Armani Code perfume...usually i like my perfume to be more of a sugary, fruity scent...If for a more formal occasion i like a floral scent...This armani code however has a very sensual scent, that I never really tried before. It smells like a sexy mysterious women at night....which isn't really a bad thing, and i grown to like it...i'd say i can wear it to a nice formal dinner date with the hubby...or when im feeling very sexy...^_^

Anyways, this concludes my haul post...i'll admit it is quite long...well longer than my usual post...but nevertheless i hope you guys enjoy it, if you have any questions or request please let me know i'll get back to you as soon as i can..Also, there are going to be a few more X-mas haul post because i bought quite a bit through out the holiday season...and i want to share with you guys...and please don't take this as bragging, thats not what my haul posts are about...It's here so guys know ahead any product that im going to review and use later...plus i normally only do hauls once a month anyway...i dont do that much shopping...lol

anyways i hope you guys have a great day ahead, and i will post again very soon

As Always, with Lotsa Luv and Xoxo

Look of the Day - How to Look good for less..and yes i am a terrible blogger...

Happy B-lated new year to all my readers...I know i've being a very bad blogger since my last post was like mid-december...but i was pretty busy during the holiday season. I wanted to do a holiday look, but there were videos and blog post of those like everywhere, so i kinda pass on that idea. But i do hope that y'all had a great holiday season...and wish y'all have a wonderful year ahead

I don't know about you guys, i've went over my budget over the holidays, since there were alot of good sales...so being totally broke, i thought i'd do a look that is very budget friendly... Personally, i've being very into neutral looks recently. I guess with the winter season neutrals are better options than vibrant colours...They requires less products and less efforts in my opinion. 

so here is the look that I came up with:
You Like???
Here is the Close up:
Eyes Open
Eyes Closed
With Flash

So ya, as you guys can see, it is a very understated, everyday, neutral look...the products that i used to create this look are very cheap, and easily obtainable..it's mainly drug store make up.

Here is what i used:
Make up Palette from Clairs(Click to see Swatch)
E.L.F. Studio Line Blushes in Pink Passion and Gotta Glow
Bath and Body work Lipgloss in Strawberry
Maybelline Mousse blush in Pink Frosting
Sephora Brand Flashy Liner Waterproof in Deep Black
Maybelline illegal Length Mascara (not shown)

All of these products cost less than 10 dollars. And chances are you probably have similar products in your make up drawer... Personally i like this look since again because i've being very into neutral recently. Also if you are a student on a budget, or just started to put on make up, you don't need to spent a fortune on high end products...

Now im not saying the quality of these are just as good as high end make up..they are not..
for example the mousse blush is very sheer, the clairs palettes are very powdery and not very pigmented. But nevertheless, they are still good products. My point is, there are alot of ways that you can make yourself look better more polished that doesn't require tons of money...For example, even though i luv Dior Show Mascara and YSL volume effet faux cils, but spend 30+ on a item that i can't use for no more than 6 months is insane amount of money...where as maybelline mascaras are just as good, for a fraction of the price...To be honest i havent bought any high-end mascara in over like 2years now...Well they are good, i just don't think spending that much money on product that expired in 6 months is worth it.

Anyways i am not preaching you guys, so please don't take it the wrong way, but if there are ways that you can look good for less I think it is a way better options than spending more and not look that much better..Right?

Anyways, I hope guys like this look and my little honest opinion, I hope it helps you in your future purchases, and hopefully saves you some money..

As always with Lotsa Luv and XOXO.J.
