So you walk in to Sephora, all excited, and you find… 40 dollar lipgloss. WHAT? You can’t believe

I love lip glosses that come in a little tube, they're easy to keep in your jeans pocket, and if you loose htem you don't feel as bad.

your eyes! I mean 40 dollars for a lipgloss!? You walk out of the store, your head drooping, defeated. Sound like you? I know I’ve been surprised by the mind blowing prices in that store. But lipgloss is neccesary in the winter monthes, not only to keep you looking fly, but to keep your lips soft and smooth. So were do you find the best affordable lipgloss? Let’s take a walk in your local Walgreens.

Yesterday I headed down to Walgreens to get a new shampoo and conditioner, but decided I needed a new lipgloss while I was down there. I walked past the rows of covergirl, maybeline, and Lorreal, all the lipglosses were still to pricey! And then in a little rack with the big words “DEAL ALERT!” on it, I thought I might have found the one. I looked down and discovered “Squeeze’ n Shine” by jordana, for $1.99. Why not, I thought? 10 minutes later I was driving home and took off the cap to smell the lipgloss. YUM! It smelled just like candy! And it even tasted good, not nasty and sour tasting like other lipglosses can be. I think I met have found the most perfect lipgloss ever!

So shine this winter with super tasy, super shiny, super cheap lipgloss!

I hate when I  get a pimple, it’s one of the most annoying, confidence-busting things in the world. It makes me

Fake beautiful skin with foundation and concealer.

self conscious and instantly brings me down. What makes it worse is that I can’t figure out how to hide the little sucker, well, not until now.

Here are the easy steps

  1. Wash your face with warm water, not hot, that will only irritate the pimple.
  2. Rub heated extra virgin olive oil in to your skin for a few minutes
  3. Wash off the extra virgin olive oil and dab (not scrub!) your face dry with a clean towl or paper towl.
  4. Next take some oil free moisteriser and apply it ont the blemish.
  5. Cover the blemish in oil free foundation.
  6. After apply concealer with a pointed brush. If you don’t have one apply with a clean finger tip.
  7. Keep applying foundation and concealer until the blemish is covered. Remember, try not to over apply, chances are no one else notices except for you.

So if you don’t have beautiful clear skin, fake it with a little foundation.

Want a great look for day and night? Try golden lined eyes.

It instantly brightens and makes your eyes bigger, but only if you do it right.


  1. First of all find a goldener eyeliner or gold eyeshadow.
  2. If it’s eyeshadow, learn how to turn it it into eyeliner.
  3. Next line you top lids in a thick line that touches your lashes.
  4. Bring the pencil down and line your inner corners, smudging under your eyes.


  1. Follow the first 4 steps.
  2. Take a Burgundy and smudge it into your crease and bring up under your brow bone.
  3. Add mascara.

Recently I went to my local CVS and because my old mascara was past it’s prime I decided I’d wing it and buy a new mascara.

Wowza, look at that brush!

Wowza, look at that brush!

From the title I think you can tell what it is was but I’l tell you anyways, it was Maybelline’s The Colossal Volum’ Express.  It was pretty cheap (7.49) so I thought what the hay, extra bonus was the super cute bottle!

After getting home and I putting it on, and the first thing I noticed was that this mascara was BLACK. Like midnight no stars or moon black. So it’s definitely a night mascara. Second thing I noticed was how full and long my lashes were looking, they were huge! The last thing I noticed? The flakes on my lashes and the rub off. At the end of the day I came home to find big smudges under my eyes, so not cool.


  • Dramatic, perfect for night.
  • Adds so much volume and length.
  • Smells like… nothing.
  • Cute bottle 😉


  • Dramatic, too black for day.
  • Leaves flakes on my lashes.
  • Rubs off easily.
  • Difficult to take off.

*** 3 out of 5 stars.

Should you  buy this product- If you want drama, the Yes.

Do you like going bare? (no, i don’t mean nude!) Well I have 10 reasons why you shouldn’t!

  1. Some studies have shown that putting on makeup makes you less clumsy! (You’d have to be a fricken’ acrobat not to need that!)
  2. It makes you prettier, I don’t care if bare is in, a little makeup never hurt anyone.
  3. It can make you more confident (even though notice else but you can see that microscopic pimple!)
  4. It can help get you noticed, I mean who doesn’t notice the girl in the neon green eyeshadow?
  5. It can make boys like you, I know it’s shallow but it works.
  6. It can help your skin (Bye bye wrinkles!)
  7. Bronzer is a great alternative to tanning, so technically makeup helps you stay skin cancer free.
  8. Keeps your lips from being chapped, I mean come on, you doesn’t love a great moisturizing gloss?
  9. Makeup parties are a great activity for a girls night in, you just can’t go wrong.
  10. And last but not least, makeup can make you feel more beautiful, and that’s all that matters in the end.

So rock that makeup, and know why you should.

I have outlast lipstain, and all I can say is holy moly.

Want to know what to wear on your lips this fall? You can push y0ur gloss and lipstick to the bottom of your makeup drawer, because lipstain is the lip product of choice. But not just any color lip stain, try cherry.

Yes, I’m talking about lipstain, but if you want to rock lipstain you need to learn the secrets of the trade. First of all, lipstain never goes on even, it leaves blotchy dark spots, and weird light spots. To avoid this rub your lipstain in after you apply it, and remember to check in the mirror before you go out to save from stained skin too. Secondly make sure you pick a good lipstain to avoid rub off. Try out last lipstain. I wore it at a the beach this summer and it lasted through dinner and swimming. Wow is right. But the perfect color for this fall is cherry. Make it darker in the middle of lips and gently lighten it out from there.

So wear it right this summer with cheery lipstain.

So wear it right this fall, with lipstain.
