Tokidoki Is Going Away T_T

4 Nov

Heya Meebsies,

It has been awhile. I am not coming back for good yet. Still extremely busy and I don’t think that I will have time to post anything else till Christmas? Hope you are all doing well. ^^ I do miss you guys, so when I heard about this sad but good news for some; I just had to share it.

tokidoki is no longer going to have a makeup line. Which is sad, because I am going to miss those cute little characters. However, this means that Sephora is having all the tokidoki products for 40% off. Check it out before it’s all of of stock. And if you are already a tokidoki fan, STOCK UP!!!! ^_^

Much Love,

Makeup Forever HD Elixir Review: Quench That Thirst!

5 Sep

Ello Meebsies,

Being sick sucks. I haven’t eaten anything solid in a week. Every time I look at chicken noodles soup I want to gag. ūüė¶

On a side note, I was pleasantly surprised when my sister came home from shopping sporting a huge Sephora bag. She bought goodies for me!!! Most of the stuff I received were just replacements for things I was running out of. The only new product I got was the Makeup Forever HD Elixer serum. MAN DO I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! ^O^

Here is the product description.

What it is:
An innovative serum that instantly hydrates and adds radiance to the skin.

What it does:
HD complexion collection uses innovative formulas to create a new generation of makeup that is invisible on high-definition cameras and to the naked eye. This unique, lightweight elixir absorbs quickly into the skin, instantly hydrating and brightening the complexion. The breakthrough formula contains D-Panthenol and glycerin to ensure an immediate boost of hydration (+520% after 15 minutes) that lasts throughout the day (+175% after 6 hours). Argatensyl is added to provide an immediate smoothing effect. Each ingredient was specifically added to prepare skin for high-definition makeup‚ÄĒso you can count on the camera picking up the perks of this perfecting formula.

What else you need to know:
This product is oil and paraben free and dermatologist tested.

Research results:
-+520% increased moisture after 15 minutes
-+490% after 30 minutes
-+430% after one hour
-+250% after two hours

You have to say, it’s pretty impressive. After using it for about a week, it’s been a life saver. I think that everyone knows what I’m talking about when I say no one looks good when you’re sick. Your nose is dry, your face is flushed, and you just look gross. For me, because I’m dehydrated, my skin is also dehydrated. So when I go on a drug run I am in no mood to do my makeup. Fear not, all you need are two drops of this serum and you are good to go. ^_^

It’s extremely light,¬†extremely¬†light. Since this is a serum, your skin will drink it up in seconds. It leaves your face¬†moisturized and almost dewy looking. If you have fine lines or crows feet, I find that this product really helps reduce the appearance. Even though this product is meant to be a face primer, you can really use it all by itself. However, if you want to have flawless foundation, use this baby with any liquid foundation to look FABULOUS!!! ^_^

Retail Price is about $40 at Sephora.

Sorry/Gold Dangly Ring

13 Aug

Evening Meebsies,

I have to apologize for the lack of post. I’ve been sooo busy. I don’t even know if there will be another post this week. As I am typing this, I am functioning on zero sleep. I haven’t slept in over 24 hours. I feel a crash coming on. I will try to post as soon as possible.

In other news, I got a really cute ring in the mail today. I know. Random. I will talk to you guys soon.

By the way. If there are any products or tutorials you want to see, please send me an email. ^^

Cute right? ^_^

Have a good night Meebsies. I know I will. Lol. ^^

Love,

Meebs

July Beauty Favorites

31 Jul

Evening Meebsies,

Just finished making really good Japanese curry for dinner. ^_^ When I think about it, I’ve been cooking a lot more than usual. Maybe I should do a cooking post? Lol. Would you guys be interested in something like that? A Cooking With Meebs section? Lol. ^_^

This last month has been a really stressful one. My skin has been breaking out constantly. Not to mention the hot weather has been trying on my skin. Thank goodness for these products. I have to say that these are my all time favorite products right now. *O*

First I’m going to start off with beauty products.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! ^O^ Take it from a girl who has single lids, which equals oily lids; this product works wonders. Maybe I am a little behind on the Urban Decay Primer Potion craze, but ¬†now I know why there was a craze to begin with. Before I found this magic in a bottle, I used Two Faced Shadow Insurance. Don’t get me wrong, I still think that it is a fairly good primer, it just didn’t really do it for my lids. It was always¬†frustrating to have amazing eye makeup; only to come home at the end of the day wondering how long had my eye shadow been creased?! I actually first tried this as a sample from Sephora. The first time I used it and came home I was AMAZED. NO CREASING. WHOOT!!! ^O^ A must have for any girl.

One of the few things you guys should know about me is, I LOVE GLITTER!!! I just think that adding that little bit of glitter to your eye makeup makes all the difference. You never see me without a little bling bling. ^^ I love this NYX Liquid Crystal Liner! The liner itself is very sparkly. I love it when the glitter is really dense. When you put it on, it doesn’t look like glitter. It kind of looks like sparkly black eyeliner. So if you don’t like really dramatic glitter this is prefect. ^^ It’s also really long lasting but easily removable with some makeup ¬†remover. Warning, it does sting a little because of the¬†alcohol¬†in the liner. But that only happens if you apply it on your waterline.

I am LOVIN’ this brush. Not only does it work like a charm, but it’s affordable. I think I paid around 12 dollars for this brush at Ulta. Which totally beats paying $30 for a Mac brush. ^^ ¬†The brush is really dense and when you use it to apply your foundation… FLLLLAWWLESSSS!!! *O*

Idk about you guys, but I love chapsticks. This is the second Nivea one I’ve tried. I’m all about honey and oatmeal. Weird right? I just had to try this out when I saw honey. The scent is really nice and it glides on my lips like butter. ^^ Really moisturizing and light. The only downside is that there isn’t any SPF. With the sunny weather, SPF would be nice.

Next are skincare products.

One of the best facial scrubs I have ever used.¬†Extremely¬†gentle, but very exfoliating. It does smell a little weird, and I do wish that the product wasn’t so chemically?.. smelling? I still prefer using good old oatmeal for facial masks. But this is a good alternative when you don’t have the time or resources; or when you’re traveling. If you guys know this Company Queen Helene, they make the mint julep masque. If you guys are a fan of that masks, you should try this one out as well. ^^

I have always been a fan of Clinique. Idk why it took so long for me to try out their lotion. This lotion is¬†extremely¬†moisturizing. Even more than the Cetaphil face lotion I’ve been using. Doesn’t make your makeup greasy, creates a great canvas for foundation, and evens skin tone. It’s pretty awesome.

AMAZING SKIN LOTION!!! This is a miracle worker. All I have to say is use it once and you’ll see the result the next day. ^_^

This body wash is awesome. It’s extremely moisturizing but leaves you clean feeling. Idk how to explain it. I hate when moisturizing body wash leaves a film on your skin where it makes you feel like you aren’t clean. On the other hand, I hate it when the body wash makes you feel so clean that you stick to everything. Lol. You guys know that I’m talking about. This is the perfect blend of everything I love without everything I hate. Also, if you have ingrown hair on your legs, use this with a loofah everyday and see them gradually¬†disappear. ^_^

Finally hair products! ><

I have always had really flat hair. I feel like I’ve tried everything to make my hair more¬†voluminousness. The thing is I hate the feeling of product in my hair. I like my hair to be clean and light. This product is great because it’s not heavy and easy to use. Right after the shower, you just spritz a little on the roots of your hair. Go to sleep and TA-DAH!!! Light, bouncy, full of volume hair. It’s pretty magical. *O* Plus it smells AMAZING!!!

Since I have really thick hair, I’ve always found it hard to find a hairspray that would hold my hair in place. This product is probably the only product I have found that will hold my styled hair for a whole day. Not only on a normal dry day, but on humid days as well. It smells good and doesn’t leave my hair feeling crunchy.

These are my favorites for July. ^^ I hope you guys have an awesome rest of the day.

Please remember these are just my personal experiences with the products. ^^

Much Love,

Meebs

Ulta and Sephora Mini Haul

29 Jul

Good Day Meebsie’s

How has summer been treating you? Mine has been pretty amazing. I’m going to be going on a road trip to Seattle tomorrow and I can’t wait. Sorry, sucker for Grey’s¬†Anatomy. Lol. ^^ I just wanted to show you guys a few things I got from Ulta and Sephora when I was in Chicago. It was actually my first time going to an actual Ulta. I’ve seen their online website, but I never knew that they had an actual store! It was pretty exciting. >< I love Ulta because it has EVERYTHING!!! Even though I am a Sephora lover, they mostly have high end makeup there. I love how Ulta is the perfect blend of high end and drug store products. One stop makeup shop. Lol. ^^

I was¬†ECSTATIC¬†when I saw this section. We don’t have anyway to buy NYX back at home. I’ve always wanted to try out¬†their¬†products.

Love Smashbox!!!

I thought it was really neat how they organize their products by face, eyes, lip, etc.

They have a pretty big hair sections. Soooo many hair dryers. ^^

Had to get NYX products. HAD to get bling bling. Lol. ^_^ I’m a glitter addict.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about these brushes. I’ve been using a foundation brush for my liquid foundation, so I thought I would try out a stippling brush. Let me tell you something. I am in love with this brush. My foundation looks FLAWLESS. *O* GET A STIPPLING BRUSH. It’s a MUST HAVE!!!

I absolutely love this pink. Very simple, elegant, yet fun. ^^

Once again, my glitter addiction got the better of me. But this nail polish was so pretty I¬†couldn’t¬†resist. Actually, this glitter matches the China Glaze I got from Ulta. I might do a nail tutorial with them. ^_^

I’ve actually been using this primer for a long time now. I found out the other day that they are discontinuing it. =( I think they are using the same formula but in a new bottle? IDK. If you guys want to try it out, you should go to Sephora asap.

I thought this was really interesting. Since I only order online when I shop at Sephora I usually get prepackage samples. I was kind of shocked when the lady asked what sample I wanted. When I asked for Urban Decay Primer Potion, I thought she was going to give me a little pouch or something. But she just went over to the sample on display and squeezed a little into this pot. It’s actually kind of really cool. Plus I’m happy that I got to try out this primer. I’ve been using Two Faced Shadow Insurance Primer but now I think I might switch over to Urban Decay. Maybe I’ll do a primer comparison/review sometime.

That’s all for now. I will have another Chicago post soon. Yeah, I have a lot of Chicago memories. Lol. ^^

Love,

Meebs

Del Sol Color Changing Nail Polish Review

21 Jul

Heya Meebsies,

I’m taking a little detour from the Chicago Trip to this AMAZING nail polish someone gave to me as a gift. It’s sooo cool. If you haven’t heard of Del Sol products you need to check them out. They specialize in products that change color in the light. I got their color changing nail polish in Superhero Pink. It’s pretty awesome.

Before sunlight, it’s a frosty blue.

After sunlight, it’s superhero pink.

It’s kind of hard to tell the difference in the picture; but I’m telling you guys, this stuff really works. It’s pretty cool.

Yeah, so I just had to share this with you guys. ^^ Idk why I thought it was just soo awesome. ^_^ Have a great day today!

P.S. I am not endorsing or advertising. I just thought this was really cool so I should share it. ^^

Summer Shopping Haul/Giveaway Announcement

1 Jul

Hello Meebsies,

I hope you are all having a fabulous time in the sun. ^^ Yesterday was one of the first real sunny days we have had. Living in the Pacific Northwest can be a little depressing at times when the weather is a constant cycle of rain, rain, and rain. So it was nice to have a little ray of hope that summer is indeed coming. ^-^As a celebration, I decided to do a little shopping for summer clothes.  Since I am going to Chicago in a few days; I really need some new summer clothes. Compared to the 70-80 F summer weather here to the 90-100 F weather in Chicago. I NEED summer clothes. LOL Most of my haul is from Forever 21. I LOVE FOREVER 21! >< But I did get some stuff here and there while I was walking around in the mall. ^^

From Forever 21

I love this skirt because I am really big on things that flow. One of my pet peeves when it comes to summer is sticky clothes. With the heat and humidity, the last thing I want is clothing that sticks to my body. This skirt is made from the scarf like material. So it allows your body to breath, keeping you cool and sticky free. ^-^ Not to mention it’s super cute. LOL

Just another Navy Ruffle Skirt. It’s easy to match and is great for summer.

Basic Half Shirt Top.

I love these shorts because it’s not made from actual denim material. It looks like denim but it’s made from really breathable fabric. It’s super soft and comfy. ^-^

I know it’s kind of hard to see. But this shirt has deep slit on the sides of¬†the shirt. I think this is great to wear with a tank top under, or a bikini for the beach.

From Etiquette

I LOVE THIS DRESS. I don’t think you can really tell, but this is a bubble dress. I’ve never really liked wearing dresses, but this dress I can’t help but love.

Really simple but pretty. You can easily match this necklace with almost anything.

Just a laced top.

From American Eagle

A pair of denim shorts is a must have for summer.

From Target

From Bath and Body Works

One of my favorite scents. I am a little bit of a  Bath and Body Works addict. ><

GIVE AWAY ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

I wanted to show my love and appreciation to all my readers out there. So I was going to do a give away with this post. But since I will be leaving soon for Chicago; I’m going to have to do my give away once I give back. So please keep reading and look forward to my give away. ^^
