Some Summer Favorites

I've been seeing this post everywhere and I just wanted to let you all know a couple of products that I constantly reach for this summer!

1) Revlon Age Defying Moisturizing Concealer in medium: I don't like using foundation anyways and this concealer is just so nice and smooth. Best part is that it's moisturizing and a bonus- SPF 25 baby!!

2) Revlon's Super Lustrous Lip gloss in Life's A Peach: First, just wanna mention the SPF... second, just want to point out the awesome moisturizing ability! Third, just wanted to tell you about the shine quality, staying power, and really pretty color!!!

3) Wet N' Wild's Spotlight Peach: I don't know if this is discontinued or not but I LOVE this color! I makes me look healthy but in a "I've been in the sun all day" kinda blush! Which is just perfect for summer I think!! I've had this blush since 2009 and it is still not going away!!! And I swear, I use it everyday for summer for past two years! It's crazy.

4) Bath and Body Work's scent for the summer: Bali Mango Fragrance Mist. OMG- even though I already have a ton of body spray that I need to use up... I just couldn't pass this up. It smells so nice, sweet and just like a the perfect SUMMER. YES, it smells like "the perfect summer". Haha!!

5) Eye brightening colors - I put these shades all over my lids with some black eyeliner and I just find that it is such a good look for summer. Very shimmery, very pretty but classy and simple at the same time. Those are my three favorite shades to do that look with.

Ulta's Rose Dusk is definitely the coolest of them all because it has a like a rosy undertone.

CoverGirl's Mink is so pretty because it is the most reflective.

NYX's Champagne is my oldest, most used, and most loved! It's got this gorgeous golden shine.

What are some of your favorites???

♥ It was my birthday on Wednesday! It was very nice. My parents... got me a new purse :) AND a mascara... that I'm kinda excited and yet very scared about!!! LOL!! You'll see.

♥ As a birthday celebration, I went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 last night.

Let me just say... I CRIED. I cried 20 minutes into the movie and the tears pretty much just kept coming. I stopped crying in the last 30 mins but it was just... a great ending!

Why people make such a big deal? - honestly, I think we all fell in love with the characters. I met Harry Potter when I was 11 and I just grew in love with his world, his friends, his enemies, his quest - his magical world. It's different than Twilight because it is not just about two people. Harry Potter is about entire world; designed with wild imagination and careful creation, beyond anything I've seen in my generation! And each book contain these epic adventures that eventually tie together into a beautiful conclusion. I think I cried, even though I know what will happen, because I feel like my magical adventure is coming to an end as well. Most of all, I feet for these characters - The Weasleys, Harry, Hermione, Snape, Neville, Malfoy... all of them!

And for those of you who aren't really fans of the book or of the movies, just go see it - it's got fantastic filming... and Snape scenes are just amazing!

Although, I don't really give a crap about Ginny... haha

Possibly The Best Haul EVER!

I haven't hauled like this in forever but I just went crazy this weekend!!! Most of it was on sale and I got pretty sweet deals too... so let's just get started! YES, I'm very excited about what I got.

First off, I have been meaning to get a new pair of sun glasses for weeks now! My favorite pair of sun glasses broke a few months ago and I've been wearing this other pair that just doesn't look that great. I have been searching high and low for a new pair that looked like my old ones but, truth be told, that last pair was just too perfect to replace. But I think I found something pretty close!

At the same place I found these sun glasses, I also picked up a new wallet. I first saw this wallet and thought it looked really good... but it was $12.50 and I just thought I could find better ones for less. But today I just gave in to temptation... and turned out that wallet was on sale! YES - on sale for $5!!! WHAT? Hahaha I was so happy!!! To quote JLo- "I'm lucky like a four leaf clover"... haha

Charlotte Russe

What do you think?

On Saturday, I went to Ulta because I received the coupon for $3.50 off $10 purchase. I saw that the Ulta brand was having a sale and wanted to check it out.

NOW... you guys... I really really recommend you going to Ulta and check out some of those products!!! Especially the Automatic Eye Pencil and single shadows!!! I was swatching the eye shadows for like 30 mins because I couldn't decide what to get! They had many options and I would've gotten so many but I had to control myself... haha

I also got a new mascara - L'Oreal's Voluminous Naturale in Blackest Black --> possibly of the my favorite mascara EVER!

Liner- $1 in charcoal; Single Shadows- $2 each; Top: Rose Dusk, Bottom: Eggplant

By the way, that liner is FANTASTIC! Way better than Revlon's Colorstay because it is long lasting but goes on very creamy! I think I might go back to grab a few more since it is only $1!!! And for those of you who LOVE eye shadows, please go check out there single shadows collection. The greatest thing about Ulta brand make up is that you get to try it out and swatch the colors before you buy.

Anyways, I am so happy about my purchases overall!!

What have you guys been hauling?? Please share!!

♥ My Bday is next week!!!!! UGH I don't like getting older... But I did get a cute dress to wear to it! HAUL HAUL HAUL - that's all I did this weekend - I swear.

♥ I got complimented on my eye make up today - woot woot

♥ New dislike: Product placement (OBVIOUS ones) in music videos... who here agrees w/ me?

♥ I got me new sun glasses & wallet ---- the only thing I need now is a new purse... anyone know a good place for a cheap (less than $30) bag???

Miss USA Inspired

I haven't tried any smokey eye looks lately but after watching Miss USA a couple of weeks ago, I was inspired to do something like that!

FYI- I don't really watch Miss USA - I just happened to came across it and... strangely wanted to watch the entire ending b/c of their make up! Haha... they had on the prettiest eye looks and I was enchanted by that!!! WEIRD huh! But anyways, I did the best I could... so... ENJOY!

I didn't use that many products. I just have CG's Mink all over the lids to give that sparkly look. Then I put the bronzy shade from Natural Smokes quad into the crease. And finally deepened the outer V w/ the darkest brown shade in that quad. Lined my eyes w/ Physician's Formula's gel liner (which I will do a review soon!) on the top and bottom lash lines!

I wanted to add the sparkle onto my cheeks so I used Physician's Formula highlighter! Overall, it is a pretty dramatic look and I think it turned out pretty good. I might've changed the outer V a little bit... but I think it is very nice for a smokey look to go out and dance the night away!

♥ So what's new w/ you all???
♥ I've been away for too long :P but I do have something to show you! It will SHOCK you!

I saw... the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge!!! YUP - Prince William and Kate Middleton when they visited Canada for Canada Day!

Besides that I've been working and just enjoying my summer... reading and watching movies and hanging out with friends! You know, the usual!

♥ I've also been HAULING!!! WOO HOO :) I will be doing a post on it soon... see you all then
