I Fail - Day 9


2 weeks into the semester and school is already kicking my butt :c

I've been ridiculously busy, running around campus, trying to sign up for classes, adjusting my schedule, so by the one I get home I am K.O'd.

I definitely don't want to drop this, so I'll pick the "90 days" back up, but I know I won't be able to post every single day, is that cheating?

I'll try to build up a schedule for the blog so it's not all random and with my Mondays being free (yay!) I should have more time to organize everything :)

Now, I do bring a peace offering: pics of my current manicure! I gave water marbling (sp?) another go and I am still not convinced. It's so much hassle and product and time for a look that I'm not so keen on... But I do believe this has been the most successful try, yet!

Easter Sunday LOTD - Day 8/90


Hey, guys!

I'm finally catching up on the challenge!
Today I did a super quick and simple look because my grandparents were coming over for lunch and I woke up at 1PM :P

All I used was a little bit of concealer under my eyes and a bit of foundation to blend everything out. I did rather thick and strong brows, tightlined my top lashline with a black shadow and used a bit of a highlight under my brows and on the inner corner. A little bit of mascara, blush and lip balm and I was done!

After lunch I tried on the Maybelline lip stain I bought recently, but I think I liked the look better without it. Besides, I'm not so impressed. It comes off pretty easily with just a little bit of water or even from licking your lips, which kinda defeats the purpose of a long wearing lip product, in my opinion. The color is lovely, though and if you seal it with a bit of lip balm it lasts longer and doesn't make your teeth pink! 

Product list:

Maybelline - Dream Mat Fluid - 21 Soft Beige/Nude
L'Oreal - True Match Concealer - Warm Light/Medium (W4-5)
BFTE - Mineral Veil - Translucent
Shiro - Heart Container blush - Potion


Maybelline - 24 Black Glamour (For brows)
Ardell - Brow Sculpting Gel
Etienne - Eyeshadow trio - Blackstage (black for tightlining)
L'Oreal - Volume Million Lashes mascara - Black
BFTE - Mineral Eyeshadow - Way Up High

Maybelline - Color Sensational Lip Stain - 75 Cherry Pop

And that's it! Happy Easter!

Tag: 11 Things About Me - Day 5/90 - Due Yesterday (^-^')


Hey, guys!

Yup, I'm (super) late on this, but I'll try to have two (or three) posts up tonight. 

I was tagged by the lovely Jessica from Better of Redhead and instructions are as they follow:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus eleven questions for the people you have tagged to answer.
3. Choose eleven people and link them in your tag.
4. Email the person to let them know that they’ve been tagged.
5. No tag backs.
6. You legitimately have to tag.

Does rule 1 mean I have to post eleven things about me besides answering the questions? Well, I think I'm gonna do that anyway :D

1. I absolutely love to read, yet I don't do it a lot. I have a huge list of books waiting to be read. 
2. I used to collect music albums before I started collecting makeup. I have a LOT of CDs. :/
3. My favorite color is green. I gravitate toward anything green.
4. I legitimately think animals are the love of my life.
Who needs a boyfriend when you can come home to them? :3
5. I've never tried a single MAC product.

Monochromatic Look - Day 4/90


Hey, guys!

This week there's a "Monochromatic" look challenge going on NTMS. Wendi actually asked for ideas for this week and this was mine and it won! Yay :D

This is what I came up with; since my nails are peachy-salmony-orange, I went with oranges. And yes, I even went with the same colors on my outfit, which might have been a little too much, but it was fun!

Easter NOTW - Day 2/90


Hey, guys!

I don't have the best pictures for this, but I might edit this entry tomorrow if I remember to take pictures in day light.

Lately I've been really into nail polish. My collection went from 20-25 polishes to maybe 60 in the last couple of months. I know for a lot of people that's nothing but to me it was really fast and I'm still eyeing so many nail polishes, it's crazy. 

The last thing I've been really into is matte nail polish, and I just got OPI's Matte Nail Envy that I'm using as a top coat, the only matte "clear" polish I've been able to find around here.

I hope this pictures aren't that bad :(
The other hand is actually different, I used an iridescent glitter polish on the accent nail, but pictures aren't picking it up very well in artificial light. Again, I'll try to post pictures of it tomorrow.

EDIT: Pictures in day light; not the sunniest day, though. And as I'm typing this I noticed my left thumb chipped :( Damn mattes and they're sucky adhesion... 

Onto the products!

Essie First Base as base coat.
Essie Haute as Hello
Etienne Maximum Long polish in 715 - Bijoux Strass
Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Gold
OPI Matte Nail Envy Nail Strengthener as top coat. 
OPI RapiDry Top Coat for the accent nails.

And that's it! Remember to check out the rest of the blogs doing the challenge:

Hope you enjoyed! :3

90 Days Makeup Challenge - Day 1/90


Yup. I'm gonna give it a try, but I can't promise anything!

Wendi (Makeup Zombie) came up with a really fun way to do this which is basically for everyone from her facebook group who wanted to, to do it and to link all of the other bloggers who are also doing it on each entry. So, I said why not? :D

In order for me to even think about success regarding this I'm gonna keep the posts short and sweet, with just pictures and the products list, if I can remember what I used.

Since it started today (yesterday?) and I wasn't prepared or wearing any makeup, I'm doing a collective post with a bunch of looks I never uploaded anywhere because I either forgot about them, was too lazy to edit the pics or forgot what I was wearing. Which happens quite often…
Some of this looks are very old and I believe my skills, skin and photographs have improved quite a bit, if I do say so myself.

So, without further ado:

I think I used mainly shiro for this one.
I remember using Ganondorf as base for the look and maybe Hyperbeam. I believe I used Epona to blend, alongside something else that I don't remember and the gold is BFTE's Autumn.
