Migraines and some beauty buys

So yesterday I got what I believe to be my first migraine, which lasted all yesterday and up until afternoon today :( I couldn't do much at all, not even my homework so I have to turn them in late! At least the migraine cleared up enough for me to take my first science test this semester. It was really scary though since I didn't know what was going on, I just noticed that driving was really hard for me yesterday and despite taking a nap for 2 hours yesterday nothing cleared up. In fact, it got even worse! My head hurt so bad and it even hurt to close my eyes when I tried to sleep, I hope I don't experience it again :(

But anyways, after my test today I headed to Ulta to make a hair appointment for Thursday. I couldn't leave empty handed, and definitely not after they just expanded the NYX section <3
I got Rimmel's Glam'Eyes Day 2 Night mascara, NYX Super Skinny Marker and NYX High Definition Eye Shadow Base
The Super Skinny Marker is a felt tip pen applicator. I wanted to try another liquid liner since Dolly Wink's is currently my favorite (but too expensive, can't always splurge $18 for it).
Here's a quick swatch of it compared to the Dolly Wink liner. The color of NYX's is bolder than Dolly Wink, but it smudges easier~ I will have to try it out for real though before I can judge it 100%.
I'm a big fan of Rimmel's Glam'Eyes Mascara line, so when I saw it in this month's Cosmopolitan magazine I knew I had to get it!

I also purchased some new fake lashes from Rakuten via Japan to Door, so I will let everyone know about those when I get them in :D


  1. That NYX liner seems to be an alternative for those that cannot get Dolly Wink easy! ;DDD

    Thanxs! ^^

  2. Ooh I've been debating on getting Dolly Wink after finishing the 24/7 one - but Nyx really does seem better...but the smudging is making me unsure ><

    Thank you so much for the review ^^

  3. My dolly wink "nib" is getting dirty from my foundation now :(
    and that mascara 3 in 1 thing looks crazy!
    I gont get how it fits together haha

  4. @ Ukyo Ku
    Yes, I think it's as easier if not easier to use than Dolly Wink's liner! The color is nice and bold too and I think the size of the marker is perfect!

    @ Kotori
    I'm sure the smudging won't be too bad for the NYX when they're actually applied on the eyes :D The Dolly Wink's is amazing and doesn't smudge at all... just on the pricey side :(

    @ Samispoon
    Mine is also really dirty, except mine is covered in eyeshadow :x I don't really know how it works either but I definitely recommend the lengthening mascara part of it~ I didn't like the volumizing so much but I will try it again!
