7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

Hey so I thought I would do a blog post today on a tag that went around youtube a few months ago, and I never got a chance to do it. So with out further ado, The 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag!

1. GREED - What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

       My most inexpensive beauty item is most likely a wet and wild product. Probably an eyeliner or eyeshadow that i got on sale for 99 cents. My most expensive beauty item is my Urban Decay Naked palette. It's the most useful palette ever and I love it! It's price went up to $50 and you can purchase it at Sephora, and Urbandecay.com.

2. WRATH - What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? 

     I probably have a love hate relationship with my concealer, or lip gloss. I use the Cover Girl fresh complexion concealer, and i think it works pretty decently, but sometimes, i just can't stad the way it looks on me. If I don't blend it out just right, it looks super cakey. my other product (yes I'm cheating ;) is lip gloss. I have a very on a gain off again relationship with it. Sometimes I can't stand the feeling on my lips, but currently, I don't mind it.

3. GLUTTONY - What are your most delicious beauty products?
    My most delicious beauty products are definitely my lush lip scrubs. I have one in Bon Bon (Christmastime release) and Bubblegum. They taste sooo good, and they eave your lips feeling super smooth.

4. SLOTH - What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
    I tend to neglect liquid face products such as tinted moisturizer and foundation. It takes effort in the morning that i usually don't want to exude, so I tend to skip this step :) If I really want nice looking skin, I'll use foundation, otherwise I'll just use concealer and powder.

5. PRIDE - What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
I feel like blush/ highlighters give me the most confidence. I think this because I feel like it makes me look happier and glowier. I think it just gives my face a nice lift.

6. LUST - What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

    Random question, But I think that any guy has to be able to make me to laugh, and have a good smile and nice hair. Other Characteristics are that they need to be intelligent and be able to have a really interesting conversation with me :)

7. ENVY - What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
    One thing that I would love to receive as a gift would be the Nars blushes (specifically the cream blush in Cactus Flower) I have been lusting after all of them forever! I'm still trying to convince my self to splurge on one this summer, but i'm not quite convinced yet ;)

I tag everyone to either make this a video on their youtube, or make a blog post like I did! I especially tag Classic+ Glam!

Project Survival

Hey Guys! 
Today I thought I would do a more somber blog post. I am.......

Going on a "No Shop" Until I finish Freshman year on June 7th 2012. (57 days not that I'm counting)

I know, but it needed to be done. This "Diet" Includes clothes makeup and everything else of the sort. The diet excludes shampoo, makeup wipes, and face care/wash. 

This is not my first choice on how to finish the school year, but I would rather save up my money for summer. I have usually spent all of my christmas and birthday money by that point, so this will be a nice change. 

This will also give me the opportunity to try and survive on my current collection and use some products up. (expect a blogpost on that.)  

This can also teach me self control (which I have little of) and teach me how to save my money better. 
   I'm sure during this time period, my beauty wish-list will explode. (hopefully so will my collection ;))

Spring Fashion Trends

Hey You!
   For this blog post I thought I would talk about some of my favorite trends this season. 

1.  Hi- Low skirts: I love the way they flow, the difference in hem length makes the skirt extra flowey and beautiful. Another reason I love these is because it look different from every angle. 

Macys Hi-low skirt- $25

2. Pastels: For some reason whenever I think of pastels, I think of easter and spring time. The light and airy look of the colors definitely go with the feel of the season.

3. Floral: Spring is in my opinion one of the best times to wear floral simply because of the flowers sprouting up everywhere! My favorite way to wear floral is in rompers, I think they look so cute and add something extra to the already adorable style :)

Forever 21 Floral Romper $12

Forever 21 Floral Tank Top- $25

4. Collared Shirts: Boyfriend or oxford shirts, especially silky ones are really in this season. The flowey and airy look of them go perfectly with the warm weather of spring. The collar and button-down look are classy, but the loose fit and sheer look of them make them more "fashion Forward."

Forever 21 Oxford- $19

These are just my opinions, and thoughts. If you have different ones, feel free to share in the comments below!

March Favorites

    I know this is a bit late, but I decided to do my March favorites.
(Sorry it's so long :( I'm a bit talkative)


Cover Girl Aqua Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer
This tinted moisturizer doesn't have much coverage, but it kind of makes me feel like I have a safety net on. The finish is not dewey but not completely matte. When you set it with a powder, (I use Maybelline Dream Matte) it creates the perfect spring coverage. (It also has Spf, always a plus!)

Cover Girl Cheekers Blush- Plumberry Glow
I love this blush because it gives your face the perfect glow. I think it's kind of comparable to Benefit's Bella Bamba Boxed Blush (Whoo that's a lot of B's!) It's strawberry watermelon color gives me a really nice glowy look on my pale complexion. This blush is decently pigmented for it's drugstore price, and the shimmer makes your face glow!

MAC 'Satin Taupe' Eyeshadow
I love this eyeshadow because it's such a unique taupe. It's a purpley brown that can create really neutral or dramatic looks! I also like to use it with a pencil brush and line my upper or lower lash line with it.

Urban Decay Naked Palette (Original)
OMG I got this palette this month and it's gorgeous. If you've never seen what it looks like, or never seen swatches, you've obviously been living under a rock. This palette is the perfect mix of light and darker shadows, and i pretty much reach for it everyday. :)

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in 'Bad to the Bronze'
I like throwing this on in the morning when I'm running low on time because it's so quick and easy, and it makes my morning that much easier. Of course as you've all heard as well, the pigmentation is gorgeous, and I think it would flatter many skin tones.

MAC Lipstick in 'Viva Glam V'
I love this lipstick! It's the perfect muted brown pink. Although it's a bit shimmery (it's a lustre) I really like the color and finish as long as I remember to reapply.

Cover Girl Lip Slick in 'Princess'
This reminds me of the concept of the revlon lip butters. It's a but of a sheer peachy pink. I love throwing this on in the morning because it's super easy and looks great with every look.

Inner Corner Highlight
I've been loving highlighting my inner corner this month. I use Ulta's eyeshadow in silk. It's just a good satiny off-white. Using a pencil brush with it in my inner corner just brightens up my whole face :)

Other Beauty:
Bath and Body Works Pink Grapefruit Body Splash
It smells soo good! I love this smell, I think it's a really nice crisp sugary scent that goes really well with spring for me.

China Glaze 'Fast Track' Nail Polish
SWATCHES TO COME! WEaring this polish right now and I love it! It was one of the colors that really stood out to me from the collection. It looks really great in the sun because of the really gorgeous golden shimmer.
