make up build up...

so as I said before, I am trying to get started on a make up collection. 
I have recently purchased two brushes from Sigma.
One E55 Flat Eye Shading Brush and an F60 Foundation Brush.

My new brushes:
E55 + F60
F60
E55
I painted over the names with clear nail polish to preserve it.

My E55 brush, I really really needed because I was looking for something like the MAC 239 to use for my 88 colors bh cosmetics eye shadow palette.
The F60 was a brush I  just bought as a way to convince myself to start using liquid foundation. 
For a while now, I have been using my IMAN Stick Foundation and setting it with a Translucent Blotting Powder also from IMAN. As we all know, IMAN products are becoming increasingly scarce. Its a good foundation but it does leave me looking oily and pasty at the end of the day. It has served me well, but I feel I as though the time has come to try something else. I'll write what I think about them so far from other people's reviews, because I cannot seem to make a decision. These are the few I have in consideration: 


  •  MAC Face and Body foundation. My skepticism about this is that it is water-based and is very lightweight. I don't really like to use concealer, so I would prefer that my foundation hid all my blemishes on its own.


  •  MAC Studio Fix Fluid. My skepticism about this is that it is really very heavy. I fear that it will ultimately break me out. 


  • MAC Pro Long wear. I actually don't really know too much about it.

I think I'll just head to the MAC store out in Eastview Mall soon and ask them for samples to try out for myself. I also need them to tell me what color I am so I don't wind up looking like a clown. First thing would be to find a ride there. *sigh* I really do need a car.

in the hand of every powerful woman, lies that BlackBerry...

source: tumblr

I really don't know what my life would be without this contraption. As a College Student, there are many things I need to survive like my planners, calendars, to do lists, task managers. Having all of these in one place - the very same place I have all my social networks (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Blogger, YouTube),as well as all my friends and family and being able to carry them around with me is all too convenient. My BlackBerry has saved my life in more ways than I can even list! This post, I have decided will just be an ode to this modern revolutionary tool. To iPhone and Android users, BlackBerry users are out-of-the-loop/outdated/uncool. I retort their snarky remarks with nothing but silence, I just shake my head and think "they don't even know"...

all my latest cravings...


I am certain that everyone has cravings. Things they just really really want at any instance in time. Some are able to satisfy these more readily than others...  Well, here is an actual comprehensive list of all my latest cravings:


(and yes, I do have an actual physical list of them. ^__^) 

  • MAC lipstick in Hug Me or Shy Girl, I still can't decide. I've decided on Hug Me! 
  • THE Vintage MOSCHINO letters belt. 
  • ASOS Gold Double Cross Ring. (once its back in stock!)
  • A faux fur Gilet for the fall. (aka one of those furry vest thingys that Kim Kardashian would sport. haha) 
  • Lots and lots and lots of rings. (Yes, I've developed an obsession.)
  • I'm starting my make up brush collection so I need few... (I actually just ordered two Sigma Brushes and I think I'll collect Sigma rather than MAC brushes. You've seen the reviews, the brushes are almost exactly alike and the Sigmas are a third of the price of MAC ones! Do the math.. $$) 
  • Miss Dior Cherie (eau de Parfum).
  • Brown Brogues/Oxfords.
  • A vintage-looking satchel bag.
  • A spring jacket. Any spring jacket!
I'll be sure to do hauls on anything else I buy, and I'll be sure to put up videos when I get anything on this list or worthy of note. Don't forget to also sub my YouTube Channel! :)

my First Post

so...

I'm new to this form of blogging... 

I've had a few blogs in the past, but most of them were private, for personal rants and raves...

This will be my first public blog and it basically another avenue (besides my tumblr) for me to ramble about my latest cravings, what inspires me, clothing/shoe/makeup/textbook (lol) hauls, videos and pictures (of me and other) and much more....

I hope you all will enjoy it as much as I know I will!
