Forever 21 Eyeshadow Haul

I was at F21 with my mom and my sister today and I saw some make ups at the bins at the check out. They are all so cheap! I ended up getting an eyeshadow duo for 99cents (on sale from $3.80), and then an eyeshadow quad for $1.50! I don’t really know how their qualities are but since they are so cheap, theres no harm trying right?! Continue reading

MAC, Forever 21, Aerie and Drugstore Haul

Yes. Another haul. And I would like to call it a “rage haul” since I went shopping because I needed to de-stress.  Too much has been happening lately and it is probably the most stressful I have ever been in my life. But it’s the weekend so I am going to forget about it and deal with it when Monday comes! So here are some of the things I got!

I went to Shoppers Drug Mart to get the Revlon lip butters since they are on sale. I grabbed two more since I really liked the formulation of the two that I got last time. I got Berry Smoothie and Tutti Frutti this time. I can’t get over how pretty the packaging is! I will be posting a swatch/review on these lip butters I got in the near future! 🙂 I also spotted the Essence display and grabbed a blush for $3.99! What a steal! Now I just need to see how’s the quality… I’ve heard mixed reviews about Essence products but hopefully this will be good!

Then I went to MAC and tried on some lipsticks… yes I am a lipstick fanatic if you haven’t noticed yet 😛 I tried on a few (hot gossip, brave, fanfare, viva glam V, and captive). I ended up picking up Fanfare because I think it is the best for everyday wear out of those I tried. Plus it’s a cremesheen… which is one of my favourite MAC lipstick formulation. I also finally caved and got my first MAC lipgloss. I opted for the cremesheen glass since I didn’t want any glitter in it, and the sales associate recommended the cremesheen (I don’t really know anything about MAC lipglasses). I tried on Partial to Pink (light creamy yellow pink with light gold pearl), but it was too neutral for me. I then tried on Double Dare, I can safely say that I am in love with that colour! According to MAC’s site, it’s a coral red. It was not really sticky when I tried it in store, so I am very excited to try it out for a longer period of time! I have been shying away from lip glosses because I hate how they are sticky and my hair always get stuck on them. So we will see how this one goes!

Next I went to Forever 21, it just opened in this mall near my place, so I am super excited! And it’s 2 floors! I picked up a feather patterned dress, a pair of jean shorts (for $12!), and a bat sleeve top. I’m not entirely sure about the dress but I will see! That’s why I love return policies! LOL!

The last place I went to was Aerie, they have 30% off everything in store! I ended up getting a pair of gym shorts (so not exciting), and another bikini! Sounds like it’s gym time for me!

So that concludes my haul! I hope you enjoyed reading it! Did you go on a haul recently? What did you get? Let me know! Or if you blogged about it, linked me! I’d love to read about it! 🙂

Have an amazing weekend everyone!

Obsessed with… Printed Tops

I am currently in this phase where I am completely obsessed with blouses. No more T-shirts. No more hoodies. Just blouses. I think it’s part of my effort in trying to slowly transform my still-juvenile closet to a more sophisticated and mature one.

And I have noticed when I am shopping for blouses, I keep gravitating towards those with cute print all over it. It’s no secret that I am obsessed with polka dots, but lately I find myself attracted to other prints… starting with bows, then hearts, then anchors, then owls… you name it. They add such a cute twist to classic blouses and can be worn with many different outfits. Pair it with jeans and an oversized bag for a casual look, or with a skirt and heels for a work-approve look (stick to more traditional prints might be a good idea if you are going to wear it to work. No cats, no owls…).

Here’s a round up for a few cute printed blouses! Let me know which one you like the most!
