All of this is from drugstore.com. I love that website because it has SO many products that I can't find in stores. :) I really needed a toner and I had heard great things about witch hazel. I was a bit turned off by the fact that it has 14% alcohol in it, but I thought it wouldn't have so many awesome raves for nothing! :D HOWEVER, to my dismay, it didn't work out for me :( Review on that later on! I also wanted to try out Certain Dri because I'll admit it, I perspire a little TOO much ): I remembered watching a video of a guru on YouTube raving about this product so I decided to give it a try. You swipe it on a few times at night before you go to bed and it's supposed to shrink your pores or something. I've only used it for about 2 days and it's actually working! :D I got that Clean&Clear gel thing because Salicylic (sp?) Acid isn't working for me, so I hope Benozoyl Peroxide will! I got that Gilette Face&Body Wash sample as a freebie. Obviously I'm not a guy so I gave it to my boyfriend! :)
These are my today's purchases with the exception of the Mandom Cleansing Express Cleansing Lotion :) I went to Ulta and and Bed, Bath & Beyond! See that little cup right there with the adorable fishies on the side!? :D That now stores all my face brushes! :D Awesome buy for $2.99! I got some Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion because I realized I'm guilty of not moisturizing my body as much as I should ): Since the witch hazel toner from the above picture didn't work out for me, I decided to get that Olay Refreshing Toner to give it a go :) I'm going to use it in a bit and see how it works out for me :D If anyone watches MakeupByLeinaBaaaby, you girlies know she LOVES Fairest Nude lipstick by Revlon. I decided to get one myself and see what the hype's all about and OMG I LOVE IT AS WELL! :D It glides on soooo smooth and is the perfect shade of nude :) Weeeeeee.
That's it, ladies :) Stay tuned for my blog sale :D
Here's the link again: http://nunudoll.blogspot.com/2009/07/mac-graphic-garden-giveaway.html
CHECK IT OUTTTTTTTT! (:
I have a bunch of stuff that's nearly brand new that I just don't use including LOTS of liquid foundation (I bought them and it wasn't my shade at all!), a few lipsticks, and MAC blush.
Would you girls be interested in a blog sale in the above items? I don't want to take the time to set it up and take photos if no one is going to buy. ):
What the website says: Create a balanced and radiant complexion that is beautiful and healthy. The lightweight formula evens out the skin tone and absorbs excess oil. The sheer formula brightens, mattes and neutralizes the skin.
Website's directions: Blend the powder over the entire face to brighten and even out the skin tone as well as neutralize any redness.
Ingredients: Mica, Talc, Magnesium Myristate, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Nylon-12, Titanium Dioxide, Octyldodecanol, Dimethicone, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Boron Nitride.
My thoughts: All of the reviews I've read about this products says it's almost HG status. For me, it's just an alright product. Sure, it does somewhat brighten up my face however if you use TOO much, it really gives you a sort of white cast over your face. Maybe I'm just heavy handed, but I always end up just looking somewhat washed out. The green shade to conceal redness is nothing special. It doesn't cover all of the redness around my nose area. Another thing, it's veryyyyyyyyy messy. ONE swipe with my brush and there's powder everywhere. For the price, it's a good purchase if you are light handed and know how to apply it properly. I guess I'm the odd one out on this product. *Shrug. So, will I buy it again? Not really. Anyone want to buy it off of me? LOL.
P.S. Just a little side note, I just bought Missha's BB cream :D I'm so excited to receive it and give it a try!
My initial thoughts? The regular line face brushes sorta suck. They're prickly to the skin but soft to the touch? Do you get that? Haha. I'm hoping after it's done drying, it'll be a little bit softer but if it isn't, then ehhh they were only $1 a piece! =P The flat top powder brush is OMFG AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGLY SOFT<3 My friend already told me how soft it would be but I didn't know it would be THIS soft. o__o I'm soooo excited to apply the mineral foundation I got with this brush tomorrow :)
She's giving away some fabulous stuff because she's reached 50 followers!! Go and enter, it's really simple! Just tell her something embarrassing that's happened to you! =P
- Blushing, Bronzing and Blending Brush
- Complexion Brush
- Complexion Perfection (I heard TONS of good reviews for this, hopefully it'll work as wonderfully for me! :)
- Coral Nail Polish
- Dark Navy Nail Polish
- Eye Shadow Brush
- Powder Brush (I also heard many awesome reviews on this brush too! It's rated 5/5!!!)
- Sunset Nail Polish
- Total Face Brush
- Mineral Foundation in Warm (I wanted to try this foundation out because I'm on the hunt for my HG foundation. I really hope I got the right shade for myself.)
So, I'm hearing ALL these raves about Revlon's Colorstay liquid foundation so for the past 3 weeks, I've been on a mission trying to find my shade! I've been through at least 5 different bottles AND NONE OF THEM FIT ME RIGHT! I guess I've gotten darker since summer started. I had to mix two shades (Sand Beige and Natural Tan) to get something close to the shade I am. HOWEVER, I noticed that one of the shades is the normal/dry formula and the other is the oily/combo formula. I'm scared to mix formulas so I have to once again go back and pick up the lighter shade in the normal/dry formula! Sighhh* So much money spent trying to find my perfect shade BUT IT'SO WORTH IT because I absolutely LOVE this liquid foundation. It applies like a dream with my Studio Tools Duo Fiber brush and doesn't break me out like MAC Studio Fix.
OH, speaking of MAC Studio Fix! I never told you girls what happened, huh? WELL, before I even bought my SF, I read reviews and it seemed like half of the girls that reviewed it broke out due to their SF. I really liked the coverage it gave me so I went ahead and bought it anyways, hoping to be one of the lucky ones that doesn't break out from it. MY HOPES WERE SHATTERED WHEN I STARTED TO NOTICE HUGE ASS PIMPLES ON MY HAIRLINE! D: I was like OHNOOOO! So yeah, now I'm in the middle of salvaging my skin. :|
Btw, I'm also in the process of looking for a good facial cleanser. My current one is for acne and once my acne has cleared up, I believe I'll need a regular facial cleanser for everyday use. I also want a recommendation for a good night cream as well :) So if you girls already have your HG facial cleanser and night cream, LET ME KNOWWWWW! =)
So many gorgeous items :) I can't wait to try them out and I'll TRYYYY to do mini reviews on the everythingggggg. Some of the stuff I just threw away because it was breaking apart :/ Some stuff I can't wait to try like that HealthySexyHair SoyRenewal Nourishing Styling Treatment :)
Next, MAC! :) I'm pretty sure most of you girls know about the MAC Friends&Family sale going on right now, am I correct!? :D If not, then hurry and go on maccosmetics.com and use the code "SUMO" or "SAVE25" to save 25% off your entire order! :D And if you order over $60 worth of stuff, shipping is freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! :D I helped my friend and manager order some stuff as well. Our total came out to be like $123 for 9 items which isn't too shabby :) I myself got Rose Romance's Beauty Powder in Blush of Youth, Lustreglass in Decorative, and Tinted Lipglass in Queen Bee. :) I wanted to get brushes, but in the end I restrained myself because I don't believe spending $30+ on brushes is justifiable. =/
Today, I went to the mall for Victoria's Secret's Semi Annual Sale and I left with only a lipgloss because all the bras in 34B were HELLA push-up and that's the ONE type of bra I absolutely LOATHE is push-up! Idk, to me it makes me feel fake. =/ I didn't want the mall trip to be a total loss so I stopped by the MAC stand and got myself Eversun Beauty Powder Blush from the Warriors Collection :) I also stopped by Target to pick up Ecotool's blush brush because I heard RAVES about this brush! :D
Oh and if you're wondering why I happen to have a MAC lipstick in that photo. It's because I finaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally received the package in the mail! About a month or so ago, I ordered a Creme D'nude lipstick from eBay and although the tracking number said it was delivered, I NEVER RECEIVED THE PACKAGE! D: I called my post office and they said they'd call me back within the week to update me. I never got the call. -____- Fast forward to last Saturday, I came home and this package was sitting on my desk. I was like "HMMMM.. I received all my online orders. What's this??" I open it and I was like :O! Turns out, the mailman delivered it to the wrong house because the packaged had "No such person living in this house" written all over it! =|
Packages from the lovely JM & my 120 palette!!!!! :D I love love love all the things I got in the prize package from you, Joan! :) (I hope I can call you that!) The 120 palette was seriously smaller than I had expected AND two of the colors cracked! :( One of them was the matte black and the pieces fell onto my rug and stained my BEIGE rug! D: I tried to clean it off and then the stains got worse! UGHHHH.
Did you lovely ladies order yours yet!? They just on sale this morning, I believe! :)
And for liquid, I use Revlon's ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF6 in Medium Beige.

Anyways, I got lazy and didn't take pictures of what I bought from each store so I just have one photo for all the beauty products and one photo for the clothing/accessories! =P I am so lazyyyyy! D:
Let's see what we got here: some brushes from Michael's, replacement disc sponges for my Studio Fix, Art Deco nail pen, Fix+ (which I absolutely in love with!), Neutrogena Colorstay liquid foundation (I am 240 Medium Beige), Milani Brow Fix brow kit, and Clinique's Blended Face Powder (it comes with a mini brush!).
All from Forever21! :D Purple tube top (the detail is amazing!), satin zebra print belt (I had got this 3 months ago for my friend's birthday and I went back to get myself one because it's so cute!), and a bow headband! :)
That's all I really have to say in this blog. Keeping it short and sweet because I am sick like a beeeeezy. I can't breathe. :(
Btw, EVERYONE GO WATCH UP! CUTEST MOVIE EVERRRRRRRRRRRRR! :D
I went Ulta on Friday before work to just look around and see if there was anything that caught my eye. :) I ended up hauling a bit, haha. There were some sales and stuff. I picked up a mirror that converts into a stand, Revlon creme eyeshadow (finally! I've been meaning to get this to use as a base!), some NYX stuff (felt liner, jumbo e/s pencils, and lipgloss) and some Revlon lippies! :) I decided to sell some of the stuff I got because I am such an impulse buyer and I don't really NEED most of the stuff I bought so I thought it would find loving homes to go to! =P And plus I know how some girls internationally cannot get NYX stuff so yeah. :) Check out my sale section here!
Today I went to the mall expecting to carry out a bunch of Old Navy flipflops because I was told it was their annual $1 flipflops sale! :D HOWEVER, when I got there, the only sizes left were like.. 9 womens and 10 mens. TOTALLY LIKE DOUBLE MY SIZE! D: I pretty much was sad after that so I decided I wouldn't leave the mall without something to cheer me up :) Well that "something" turned out to be THREE "somethings" hahaha :D
Look how big it is compared to his cell phone, rofl. I told him if he never takes it off, I'm gunna be mad at him! O:)
Girls, remember my other post about Nee's giveaway and I said my favorite HK item was my nerdy HK pouch!? WELL GUESS WHAT I FOUND AT THE SANRIO STORE TODAY!? :D AN NERDY HK LUNCHBOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wooo :) I honestly don't carry my lunch to school with me BUT I'm going to use it as a purse, LOLLL. I asked my boyfriend if he would still go out in public with me if I carried that around, and he said yes! =) Tehehe.
I went into Victoria's Secret and I saw that all of the Very Sexy cosmetics were 75% off!!! :D It was a pretty messy sight though. Empty boxes everywhere and most of the stuff were just laying there. I dug through HARD to find stuff that weren't already swatched and messed up. THEN I had to find their respective boxes. -____- I only came out with two things because those were the only ones I wanted that weren't already fucked up! I got the Mosiac E/S in Frisky (right) and the Mosiac Blush in In Lust (left). Both were only $4.50 each! :D

Overall: 4 out of 5
Would I repurchase? Yes!
Where to purchase: CVS, Target, Walmart
Pros: I got the one with the curved brush and I absolutely love it :) Gives me lots of volume though it isn't great with lengthening. BUT that is where my Maybelline Lash Stiletto comes into play! Does not clump much either.
Cons: The lengthning issue, but that's not what they claim to do so I shouldn't even be complaing! :P
Conclusion: I love this mascara. It is definitely HG status at an awesome price! :)
Here's the link again!!
Edit; I guess I'll include what I did for my entry :)
Here is my Hello Kitty nerd pouch! :D <3
I am makeup-less and my hair is a MESS! Andddd I am wearing my glasses! And to top it off, I'm wearing my retainers.. Eeeeep!!
I totally COULD NOT believe it when I stepped inside Rite Aid and I saw Jesse's Girl Cosmetics!! :D I was like wowow. Since I am still on my makeup ban (BOOHOO!), I got some nail polishes instead. :) They were $3 which isn't THAT bad, I guess? I also got a few bottles of top coat from Sally Hensen since they were buy one get one 50% off!!
The Jessie's Girl nail polishes are cute huh!? The pink is more of a hot pink! The camera picked up the color weird. They're called Hot Pink and Blue Moon. I don't know WHY it's called blue moon when it's a PURPLE color. Again, the camera picked up the color weird. It ISSSS a deep purple!
Last week I had gotten into a huge argument with my boyfriend and I told him I did not wanted to see him for a while so two of my girls suggested going to Ontario Mills to do some shopping to take my mind off of him! :D
I finallllllllllly found a Marilyn & James poster! Isn't it SO pretty! It was $8 at Charlotte Russe. I think it's totally worth it. You can't tell from this picture, but the rose bud and Marilyn's lips have a reddish tint while the rest of the poster is black and white! :)
Went to Forever21 to check out some stuff and came out with these two things. I love their bras - they're only $4.50! :) Contrary to the whole you-get-what-you-pay-for type deal, these bras are really comfortable and last me a while! I have like 5 of these all in different colors!! :) I have a HUGE thing for crochet tops so I bought this one to add to my "collection!" ;) It was only $9.80!!
I finalllyyy found a purple&plaid flannel for under $20! :) This is my FIRST short sleeve flannel and I love it. I like how it has a v-neck although you can barely tell in this picture!
MY HELLO KITTY BUILD-A-BEAR!!!! I had been eyeing this darn cat for a while so I just decided to go on a whim and buy her :) I named her WAI MAO, which is chinese for Hello Kitty. I know I knowwww, my friends & I are just THAT creative, LOL.
My sample finally came in :) I got the free sample (had to pay for shipping though!) of the Peace&Love Mineral Foundation. It came with a mini kabuki brush :D I used it and I'd say it is so-so. Nothing special. It also came with a free sample, a moisturizer of some sort. I've yet to try it so I don't have a clue of it works or not, hehehe.
OMG my ELF haul had finally came in last week! :D So far I am loving the brightening eye colors and the eyeliner&eyeshadow stick. :) I have yet to try the beloved blending eye brush as well as all the other brushes but I WILL SOON!!! =) The concealer stick is like whateverrrrs.
So my initial purpose of dragging my boyfriend to KMart with me was to get those oh so famous "KMart flats" for $7! I went and they didn't have size 5 in black, let alone ANY COLOR!!! They neverrrrrrrrrrr have size 5 in anythinggggggggggg! D: Anyways, I was looking through the shoes section when I spied with my little eyes something gold and black and OMGGGGGGGGGGG, they were SO cute!!!!
Adorable, no!?!?!? I tried it on and it fit perfectly. It was meant to be :) They were also on sale from $18.99 to $14.99! :D Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :)
I went to CVS with the intention of buying that crease duo brush pack from Beauty of Essense but I decided against it because I am going to Michael's tomorrow to get some Loew Cornell brushes anyways. I went to the teeth section hoping to find Plus White and I DID!!! =D I hear this stuff does WONDERRRS at whitening teeth so I'm going to give it a try. Maybe a future review? :D I also got a new tooth brush and a loofa with a stick attached SO I CAN SCRUB MY BACK MORE EASILY! :)
My friend recommended me Plus White so I'm going to try it :) My teeth unfortunately has a yellow tint due to all the coffee I drink so I've been meaning to whiten them but I cannot for the life of me justify spending $100+ at the dentist for a professional cleansing. So instead, I opted to buy this kit for only $12.99!!! :D
MY NEW BLACKBERRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My sidekick decided it was going to give out on me so I was left with my old old oldddddddddddd cell phone for a few days. I then decided to get the Blackberry Curve 8900 from the store. I was heading to the store, WILLING TO SHELL OUT ABOUT $500 ON THE DAMN THING, when I decided to go on a whim and look for some listings on Craigslist! I FOUND A LISTING WHERE SOME GUY THAT WORKED FOR TMOBILE WON IT IN A CONTEST AND DECIDED TO SELL IT FOR ONLY $300 BECAUSE HE ALREADY HAD A G1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11 I was like OMFGGGGGGGGGGG, this is perfect. So I texted him and he called me back and asked where I lived and I told him Temple City. HE DID TOO! He asked me where I was at the moment and I said I was going down Rosemead Blvd to go back to my boyfriend's house. AND HE TOLD ME HE WAS AT TARGET PLAZA (WHICH IS RIGHT BEFORE MY BOYFRIEND'S HOUSE!) I was like OMFG DON'T MOVE. I'M COMING RIGHT NOW. I HAVE CASH ON HANDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!! :D
So yeap, that's the story of how I got my beloved BlackBerry<3. I got a cuteee purple and silver zebra case for it as you can tell. LET ME TELL YOU, THIS BLACKBERRY IS THE BEST PHONE EVER INVENTED. I LOVE IT TO PIECES! :)
ANDDDDD, do you girls recognize my wallpaper/theme?!?!? :D
