My Halloween Costume: Lumpy Space Princess

I haven't really been enthusiastic about doing Halloween costumes in the past couple of years, and usually just wear a kigurumi! However, when I saw the Adventure Time episode "The Creeps", I knew what I was going to do:

So I picked LSP as Duchess Gummybuns! How did it come out?

My HG Highlighter: MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Gilt

A lot of people ask me about highlighters, and I have a lot of them. In the picture below is the majority of my collection, but I missed a few (including Benefit Watt's Up! and others that are in palettes):
There is one star in my collection, which is my HG (holy grail) highlighter. I simply feel like I cannot live without it!
♥MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Gilt♥
It is limited edition and was released originally in March 2012, but it is being repromoted *right now* in MAC's Holiday 2012 Glamour Daze Collection!

Beauties with medium to dark skin tones, you definitely need this highlighter!

Circle lens review: GEO Mimi XKP-304 (AngelColor Starmish)

I received some new lenses from that I purchased about a month ago, so I thought I would review one of the pairs!

Today I'll be reviewing GEO Mimi XKP-304, otherwise known as AngelColor Starmish Brown. These are produced by Popteen model Mai Hirose and have been getting a lot of praise in Japan!

Beauty Haul from Barneys New York

I have a lot of schoolwork to do, but I thought I'd post about a haul I got over the weekend. My friends from New York came to stay with me over the weekend so I am pretty tired!

Yesterday we went to Barneys New York in Beverly Hills, CA. One of my friends is an associate at the flagship store in NYC so I went on the incentive of using his employee discount. Discount on high-end makeup? I would have to be an idiot to pass that up!

Review: Diamond Lash Little Wink Series in Romance eye and Honey eye

I've had these for awhile now, and I know a lot of people are curious about how these are so I thought I'd review them! The Diamond Lash Little Wink series was released back in February to be more natural looking, similar to the newer Dolly Wink lashes.

Irvine Global Village Festival, 9/29

Last weekend was the Irvine Global Village Festival, which happens once a year where I live! It is set up to bring many cultures together to celebrate it all in one place. To be quite honest, Tony and I just went for food!

Review: tarte Fantastic Foursome 4-Piece Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Enthusiast Set

Sorry everyone for neglecting to update my blog :( I've had some troubles with negotiating my graduation at school, which is not happening this semester due to some technicalities set in place. I'm pretty upset by this since I worked very hard to get to where I am. but I will continue to work hard and not let it get me down.

But before I get super backlogged with posts, I thought I would post a review and swatches for a set of blushes that came out for the holiday!
The tarte Fantastic Foursome 4-Piece Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Enthusiast Set (what a mouth full!) contains 4 blushes for $35. The full sized blushes are $25 so these are quite a deal!
