Top 5: Black Liquid Liners

Greetings from the Dark Side!

I took a small break from blogging because I attended Fanime 2013 in San Jose, CA, so I'm sorry for being MIA! Today, I want to share my "Top 5" for black liquid liners. Well, this is not so much a "Top 5", it is more to show the liquid liners I currently own. But I do like all of the ones I own. So if you want to know more, please keep reading!~

Tutorial: Thanksgiving in Summer

Greetings from the Dark Side!

Today I have this look which, aside from my foundation, was done using only drugstore products~! Very cheap drugstore products at that!Maybe it is just me, but the colors are quite reminiscent of Thanksgiving. Either ways, I hope you enjoy ^_^

Top 5: Pencil Eyeliners (For the Waterline)

Greetings from the Dark Side~

Like many of you, I am always on the search for the best eyeliners, especially eyeliners to wear on my waterline. I've found a few really great eyeliners in my search and I want to share my Top 5 favorite eyeliners for the waterline! Keep reading for more information!

*In order from Left to Right:

1. Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner in 'Deepest Black'
This is the most recent find, and by far one of the best drugstore finds. The Prestige eyeliner is really affordable, but it does not lack in quality. It is an intense semi-glossy black that dries to a satin finish. This is particularly great for a smokey, smudged look~ You can of course use this on your upper lash line for a smokey look!

2. Milani Liquif'Eye Eyeliner in 'Black'
This Milani one is very similar to the Prestige eyeliner. This is also an intense semi-glossy black. I find that this one smudges a little more than the Prestige one though, so I prefer the Prestige one because it lasts longer on my waterline.

3. Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Eyeliner in 'Perversion'
If you have trouble finding a black that stays on your waterline, you might want to try this super matte black. I personally prefer this particular eyeliner for neutral or classier looks. It is still really dark, but it is not as smudgy and rocked out like the Milani and Prestige ones. This one is a bit pricier, but definitely worth the price. If you are not willing to shell out the money for this one, definitely try out the Prestige or Milani eyeliners.

4. Rimmel ScandalEyes in 'Sparkling Black'
When a plain black eyeliner gets too boring for you, try this sparkly black eyeliner. It is a pigmented black loaded with silver sparkles. It looks insanely awesome on the lower lash line/waterline and the upper lash line. It stays surprisingly well on my eyes too! Such a great drugstore find!

5. Rimmel ScandalEyes in 'Nude' 
The nude eyeliner is one of my recent beauty favorites. This Rimmel one is a cheaper alternative to the higher end nude eyeliners. I have to say that for $5, this nude eyeliner is freaking amazing. It is quite pigmented and long lasting. It looks so great for a wide-eye, natural look! Yet another amazing drugstore product! I used the eyeliner in THIS look.

There are so many more great eyeliners, but these are the standout in my makeup collection. If you have any recommendations for great eyeliners, let me know ^_^ I always love trying out new products!

Review: Revlon 'Juicy Papaya' and 'Wild Watermelon' Lip Butters

Greetings from the Dark Side~

Revlon's summer collection, the Pacific Coast collection by Gucci Wetsman, included four new shades of the Lip Butters. This was exciting for me personally because I am crazy about Lip Butters. Most of the them and extremely wonderful: they are pigmented, moisturizing, and easy to touch up. I purchased two colors from that collection: Juicy Papaya and Wild Watermelon. These are supposed to be included in the permanent range, so if you missed out don't fret just yet!

FOTD: Revlon 'Wild Watermelon' Lip Butter

Greetings from the Dark Side~! Today is a super lazy day, and I am not even wearing any eye makeup. During the busiest days of the week, I opt for wearing a bit of concealer or BB cream along with a bright lip color. On those days I usually wear my glasses and/or sun glasses to hide the fact that I am wearing zero eye makeup xD The best lip color for me during these days are very bright and moisturizing lip colors, such as the Revlon Lip Butters. Today, I used 'Wild Watermelon', and it is such as gorgeous lip color. It is redder in person than in the photo, but it still is very juicy and pink! Review for this Lip Butter coming soon :D

What do you think of 'Wild Watermelon'? Do you like the color?

Haul: Revlon Pacific Coast Collection + Nail Polish

Hello ^_^

After completing the 15 weeks of the a low-buy, I am happy to report that I have actually been sticking to a low-buy. I have not purchased anything after buying the four L'oreal Infallible eyeshadows and a few new RBL polishes. I have been really stressed out these past few days though, so I gave myself a small break and went to Walgreens to do some hauling. I bought a few things from Revlon because there was a BOGO sale going on~ Woot! Sales are awesome :D

1. Revlon Gucci Wetsman Pacific Coast Collection Baby Sticks and Lip Butters
I love, love, love Revlon products, especially Lip Butters. I managed to score all three of the Baby Sticks ('Pink Passion', 'Sunset', and 'Tahitian') and two of the Lip Butters ('Juicy Papaya' and 'Wild Watermelon').

Series Overview: Diablo III

Greetings from the Dark Side :D

I recently just finished my Diablo 3 Series so I wanted to show all the looks in one post :D I really enjoyed doing this! It was so much fun!! It was also fun compiling all the looks together and seeing them all on the same page. Seeing them has made me see how my skills have either improved or stayed the same in the past year. Take a look for yourself. Here are the five Diblo III classes and the one support class:

 The Witch Doctor look is my personal favorite! I really love this look and I have worn it a few times since I posted the look.

Diablo 3 Series: Enchantress

Greetings from the Dark Side!

I am happy and sad to announce that this is the last of the Diablo 3 looks! I was going to be done after completing the looks for the classes, but I really liked the Enchantress so I wanted to do an inspired look.

The Enchantress is probably one of the most colorful characters in Diablo 3. I liked her outfits and the voice actress' accent! I also thought she looked the most girly out of all the characters and I wanted to play around with that. She inspired me to do a very simple, yet slightly edgy look that is fun and different. I used peachy browns, pinks, and a bit of green to create this look and I hope you like it :D

A simpler look with just pinks

Rescue Beauty Lounge 'Smile'

Hello darlings ♥

You might know that I absolutely love Rescue Beauty Lounge nail polishes, they are a huge guilty pleasure of mine. They are really pricey, but completely worth the money (in my opinion). Recently RBL released a long-awaited collection called Emoting Me. I had been expecting the collection for months, so I put aside some money and I pre-ordered some of the shades. One of the colors I picked up was 'Smile' :D

'Smile' is a bright pink-red creme with fine gold shimmer. The color looks more red in the pictures than it does in person. In person, it even seems to change from a darker pink, to a brighter coral-y pink. The color is absolutely perfect for summer~

The formula is amazing, as usual. I have two coats of 'Smile' with no top coat. It would probably look even better with a top coat, but I am ran out of mine :(  I also noticed that this dries extremely fast, much faster than most RBL. That is a huuuge plus for me!! ^_^ I love when nail polishes dry quickly~

This polish really does make me want to smile! The name just reminds me that no matter what happens, just smile :)

Rainbow Polish 'Artoo'

Happy Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you ^_^

 In the spirit of Star Wars Day, I applied a Star Wars inspired nail polish~ This is Rainbow Polish's 'Artoo' nail polish. 

Artoo has a transparent base with chunky white and blue glitter, and rainbow colored sparkles. I used two layers on my bare nails, but you can always layer this over another nail polish. My nails look a but yellow in the photos, sorry about that >_<" It looks amazing in person though :D I love it!

I hope all you all had a great Star Wars Day!
