Skincare: Panda Face Mask #1 – Product Review

Hey guys! This is one of those old posts before I cut my hair that never posted! So here we go…

So I’ve had some really cute panda face masks for a while now. They were almost too cute to use! But I finally decided to try the first one out last week! The mask is for HYDRATING and SOOTHING skin. (This review is for the one on the left (again that would be stage right ;)) … Don’t ask.

Yes, I will be reviewing the second mask (the pink one) hopefully later this week so be sure to come back if you want to see the second one! So these masks we’re both given to me as a gift so I am not sure where they originally came from but the brand(s) are Soo’AE NY, for this mask and the pink one is from Peach Slices!

First off, please note that the mask is very fragile and somewhat hard to place gently. Masks usually come with a slimy gel type of liquid and this mask was thick and slimy honestly. At least in my hands. When I put it on my face it was perfect! Once again though be careful with it, because I ended up accidentally ripping my mask near the nose part, which made it kinda hard to position correctly… The first thing you notice is that it’s obviously hella cute! It’s literally a panda face (but only half of it) so it is made specifically for your eye area only not your entire face.

I waited a while to review this mask because I wanted to make sure I used it for what it says: revitalizes eyes, soothes, and hydrates. So I waited until my skin was particularly dry and my eyes had dark circles underneath them. The thick slim did the trick. I know most masks are slippery and sometimes they are slimy as well, but this particular mask was thicker than any other mask I’ve ever tried before… The hydration made my face glow again! I’ve tried other hydration masks but this one takes the cake for brightening and making my face glow afterward.

I definitely would recommend anyone needing hydration or even just a mask to make your face look alive instead of extremely dry this would be the mask for you! I, unfortunately, lost the after picture so you should try it out on your own! Just remember that the mask is thick, heavy, and slimy when you open it, so go slow so you don’t rip it like I did! 😛

Has anyone ever tried this mask before? Or even just heard of the brand ”Soo’AE New York” or tried any other products from them? What are your thoughts? Or if you haven’t, would you want to try out this mask? The cuteness alone is a bonus! Thoughts? xo

Photo Diary – New Hair Style (Snapchat)

Hey guys… So I guess none of the blog posts I have been writing and posting have even been going live! I guess that’s my own fault for not checking them LOL. Anyhoo… About two months ago I had to cut my hair. I have never liked my hair short. My hair is naturally curly so when it’s short, I tend to have overly frizzy curls and I think I look a bit like Annie (you know… Red curly hair in an afro-style hair style).

My friend on the other hand thinks I look more like Merida from Brave… But that’s with my LONG hair! I won’t argue with that one. Although Ariel is my princess for life, my red hair isn’t as smooth and wavy as Ariel’s. Well… Maybe if I was underwater haha. So fine then, Merdia, we have cool hair… And a Scottish heritiage!

Haha. Anywho, the point being my hair is short but for the first time in my life… I actually really like how it came out! Especially since I cut itself and it’s only the second time in my life that I have done that. New photos will be coming soon but for the mean time… Here’s my Snapchat diary! My hair is about a half an inch longer now lol but obviously you can’t really tell.

It’s shorter on the left side (stage right – LMFAO) so I don’t part it down the middle… And yes it was supposed to be. What do you think of it? Way too long of a blog about nothing but cutting my hair? Yeah… I agree. Pfft. Let me know in the comments below!

Pop Culture: Dreadlocks – Culturally Inappropriate or A Symbol of One Love?

Hey guys. So today I heard that Justin Bieber is being attacked because he had dreadlocks. Dreadlocks. Dreadlocks are a natural style of hair and not JUST FOR ONE TYPE OF PERSON. I do not understand how something natural can be considered culturally inappropriate because of someone’s ethnic background? There are tons of other people in the industry who also have this hair style so why attack Justin Bieber for it?

A few years back… Like a decade or so ago… I really loved dreadlocks (and still do!). I loved them so much I decided to actually try dreadlocks! Seriously! I am also a huge fan of cornroll (or is it corn rows? idk my computer wants to auto correct it…) braids and twists too. In high school, my sister would practice on my hair and I got a bunch of cute hair styles involving braids and twists from her! Back then, everyone loved it! Now… I’m not sure how people would take it?

I couldn’t hang because they were way too itchy for me… But for the past two years of my life… I didn’t have a choice. I won’t lie… I fell into a depressed phase of life and stopped caring about a lot in life… This caused me to stop brushing my hair for a while… Which caused it to go into it’s NATURAL state all on its own. Yes, my hair dreaded itself into a side ponytail (I kid you not) and a few smaller dreads in random places for almost a year and a half. I was unable to get it out and finally opted to cut it which lead to my new short hair style I debuted a few days ago on Facebook.

I styled my hair for that time period with my dreadlocks as apart of my style… It finally became too much to handle and I chopped it off myself (after it finally moved far enough from my skull to be cut).

Dreadlocks are not a one size fits some type of hairstyle. Dreadlocks are both a lifestyle (/hairstyle) and a natural form of hair for more than one ethnic group. I cannot speak for everyone’s culture, but I do know that my own culture does naturally grow dreads. To top it off, its still a really cute hairstyle for both guys and girls!! I hope Justin Bieber ignores all the ignorant hate and keeps them!

What do you think? Should Justin have to change his hair? Is he being culturally inappropriate or being racist by having them? Leave your thoughts below!

Beauty: “Knot On My Watch” Hair Detangler – Product Review

Hey my loves. So this past year I had some huge problems with my hair being overly dry and getting all tangled together. It got so bad I couldn’t even get a brush through it and I seriously considered chopping off ALL my hair, until…

Knot On My Watch hair detangler is the bees knees. Literally after trying so many different options, I ran into this product and I am never using anything else to detangle my hair ever again.

The instant you put it in your hair the brush just starts to move through the locks. I have extremely curly hair… It’s my lion’s mane (I’m a Leo) and my curls are rather important to me. Plus they keep my neck warm like a scarf during the cold months… So cutting off my hair was literally going to make me super upset. The absolute best part is it’s not expensive at all! I got it at my local Target store for under $15 which is great because before I found it I tried looking for solutions on YouTube and I found some companies and products that may have worked but they weren’t really in my budget at the time.

Has anyone ever tried this product? Did it work for you? What do you guys do when you have hair problems? Let me know in the comments 🙂

Product Review: Dead Sea Minerals Anti-Stress Facial Mask

IMG_5788

IMG_5811

IMG_5815

IMG_5833

This is one of my all time FAVORITE masks.  I haven’t been able to find the large version in the store (although I’m sure they have it) it really cleans out your pores and makes your skin feel soft. The main reason I fell in love with it is because it smells like you’re at the beach. It’s wonderful! Not to mention it’s bright blue! HAHA

This is a horrible product review, but really out of all of Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Facial Masks, this is my all time favourite and those are the only facial masks I use (I rotate depending on what my skin needs).  Right now I’m trying their “Chamomile Sleeping Mask” instead of using my night cream to see how that works so I will let you know! So far I really like it, but I’m not too sure if I like it better than my night cream because that makes my skin feel like a baby’s bottom the next day!

I bought a BUNCH of these packets for different facial masks from them including some new ones that I haven’t tried on my shopping haul last weekend (I haven’t posted all the skincare stuff I got yet!) so there will be some reviews up featuring some new products of theirs! I love Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Facial Masks.  They have one for all types of skins and literally use EVERYTHING you can think of to make sure you find one you love specifically for you. x

Confessions of a Shopaholic: Makeup & Makeup Kit (Part One)

Hey guys! It’s been stupidly hard to blog since my camera broke but the good news is, my new DSLR comes in the mail TOMORROW! I should be getting my camera bag & tripod today 🙂 anywho! I went shopping with my mom this past weekend and have a LOT of stuff to share so this is part one: the makeup!

I’m really excited because I finally got myself a makeup kit (it’s a bit small but it’s a start!) I have so much makeup that I have a huge makeup bag full of just lipstick plus these two little travel bags (both purple) one came with my new brushes! Check it out!

 

So I lost my black lipstick when I moved out of my grandmas house and have been looking for a new one ever since… But I finally got some NUDE lipsticks which I’m super excited about. One is more of a peach nude and is called “Lasting Finish” by Kate for Rimmel. (also Target doesnt sell my favorite lipstick brand and that’s really disappointing to me). The next one is “Bare All” which is more of a nude nude by Maybelline. The deep Rose one is called “Berry Rose” and is a nice mix between pink, red and purple. The last is a “Lilac Flush” which is a pink but not too bright since it’s mixed with purple. 🙂

 

I noticed after getting home that a LOT of my brushes went missing including my favorite blush / contour cheeks brush so I went and got some new brushes that came with a little makeup bag (haven’t decided what to use it for yet tho because…)

 
All of my brushes don’t fit in it so I use my other purple travel sized bag which is a little bigger for my brushes!

 

I also redid my key chains because I have quite a few new things including my purple pill holder, the butterfly keychain that my mom got me for Christmas & this daisy hand sanitizer holder (we went to bath and body works but that’s a different blog!) I also added my purple sharpie 😉 because I’m collecting everything purple on my keys!

 
And now it’s time for this bad boy! My new makeup kit. Like I said it’s a bit small for everything I have but I love it! It locks so I added the key to my key ring!

 

When it opens it has four shelves and a large bottom. So I put all my basics on the bottom.

 

The makeup that it holds are the BEST make ups I have including Dark Heart Designs (seriously the best makeup ever) I also added a few pallets that I use often. All my other makeup (broken pallets) like Elf that come off very easily I put inside the bag with my lipsticks for “back up”. I also got some regular items like black eyeliner (pencil, cuz i have liquid) & gray eyeliner, makeup remover wipes, q-tips, oil wipes, etc.

The very top holds my eyeliners, mascaras & eye shadow base (which I will be doing a review on because it’s great!) so this is the MAKEUP STUFF that I got this weekend. I have tons more to show like I said bath and body works, I got a few new clothing items & a lot of skincare product so! So it’s going to be a full blogging day for me! But first I am going to get dressed and do my makeup! 😉

Beauty Basics: Celebrity Perfumes

I’m winding down for the night! Only two more posts to go after this one! So, I rarely wear perfumes only because they are SO EXPENSIVE! And if you are really going to pay $50-$100+ for a bottle it better smell pretty fantastic! I usually use body spray… or more preferably just deodorant and I’m out the door with my normal skin scent.  However, there are a few perfumes that I DO actually think smell good and I have forked over the money for them especially this first one at least three times now!

tumblr_m1x4keMU6O1r0ay4y
Number one: With Love… by Hilary Duff

I have always been a fan of Hilary Duff and I think she released another scent of perfume after this one but I didn’t really like it as much but that could of been a dream… let me go look. Yeah, she did it’s called Wrapped With Love also it’s gone WAY down in price since it first came out… either way I LOVE the scent of With Love and I’ve bought three bottles of these since it came out.  The scent is great, sweet and perfect for nights that need perfume (because you don’t need it every night really now…)

tumblr_m1x4utXqGc1r0ay4y
Number two: Fantasy by Britney Spears

I am not even a Britney fan… sorry don’t hate me. I don’t dislike her, I’m just not a fan… I do however LOVE the smell of Fantasy which happened one day as I was walking through Macy’s and someone stopped me to smell it.  I was mildly surprised at how much I really did love the smell of it!

tumblr_m1x4r8sedT1r0ay4y

Number three: The last one I only tried because Emma Watson endorsed the product and I love her. The one thing I didn’t know was that I was actually going to fall in love with the perfume too! It has a scent of raspberries, vanilla & rose.  I’m not a huge fan of the way vanilla smells but the other two really brought this one together… plus the packaging is purple and anything that’s purple is really appealing to me.  Although this one I believe is the most expensive out of the three, it’s also probably the one most worth it! You should definitely try it out if you can! What’s your favorite perfume scent? (NOT body spray, perfume.. .you know the expensive kind that you only use out of magazines by rubbing the paper on your skin and hoping if you keep the paper sealed away the smell will last longer but it doesn’t… that kind of perfume), x

Beauty Basics: Kesha’s Infinite Lipcolors ♥

You might notice I’m blogging A LOT tonight… I decided if I just post one or two of my old posts a day.. that might take me an entire YEAR to catch up with them… So I’m sorry if all these posts bother you but I really want to post them all and get them out of the way.  Instead of posting them one – three per night I figured maybe I’d do all the blogs for one – two MONTHS per night.  Then maybe I’ll be done by the end of February and it will no longer bother me and I will be free to finally create new posts without having my old ones hovering above my head!

This post is brought to you by KESHA and needs to be updated because I own SO many more colors than I used to when it comes to lipstick…. I mean every shade of the rainbow and shades OF shades of shades… of shades of the rainbow 😉 I can’t wait to show you all of them! Until then, I wanted to post this about how my favorite musician Kesha (who has her court date NEXT month since it was unfortunately post-poned earlier this week) can literally rock every color of lipstick effortlessly… AND DOES.

At the time of originally writing this post, like I said I never really experimented with lipstick colors so this “Amber” gold-orange was my favorite.  Since I’ve tried many differents including purple glitter & black (which happens to be one of my ALL time favorites!

IMG_0225

I definitely need to do a lipstick palette post with my lipstick colors! Who knew there could be so many shades of just pink and red alone! I own everything from pink ballerina shoes (a VERY light pink) to hot Barbie pink (a VERY PINK pink).  What’s your favorite lipstick color and why? I can’t wait to show you the colors I have now! I have so many… this image below doesn’t even begin to cover it!

You have no idea… How many do you own? x

Product Review: Kimble Bounce Back Curling Revitalizer

Hey guys! So a few years ago my mom got me this curling revitalizer as a Christmas gift and ever since I haven’t found one that tops it (my next review of a curling revitalizer will be pretty much the opposite of this one).  This one really lives up to it’s name of “Bounce Back” and makes your curls fresh and really bouncy!

eb4a6fca93d211e18cf91231380fd29b_7

It’s a sticky gel.  Almost like hair gel but you apply it after getting out the shower and it works it magic while your hair air drys! That’s it! You just brush it in and it does all the work.

45a980ea511711e1b9f1123138140926_7

This is my curls before I jumped into the shower.  I have naturally curly hair, so this is pretty much what it looks like everyday. Notice how it’s flat at the top by my roots and doesn’t really start to get curly until it passes my ears.  Then the curls are pretty much all over the place and I don’t mean in a good way!

e54b465c8a7811e19dc71231380fe523_7

This is AFTER my hair dried and using the Kimble Bounce Back Curling Revitalizer! The curls start at the roots, they are more spiral shaped, tighter and closer together and go all the way around my head.  I LOVE this product so incredibly much. The way my curls just literally bounce with it is amazing.  I mean I have naturally curly hair so no matter what I do the curls will always be there they don’t “go flat” but they can look disgusting and using this really made them look amazing. I also got two other Kimble products that I didn’t like quite as much.  One was a mint shampoo and I’m not a fan of mint.  When I opened it in the shower, it burned my eyes with the strong small alone… so I’m not saying that I love this product for any reason other than I truly TRULY LOVE IT and have not found anything better to this day.

This product is hard to find in stores.  Usually you can find it at Sally’s or possibly Target if you’re lucky.  But if you don’t feel like going on a hunting trip, you can always order it online.  Becareful of which product you are getting.  They appear to have MANY different ones under the exact same brand and same name but are different types of liquid texture. They also have changed the look of the bottle since I got mine (pictured above) so there are a few different looks that you might find when looking for it.  Mine (above), the newer-older version (below)…

kimble-beauty-bounce-back-curl-revitalizer-560x560_2

OR these newer bottles of it rather than a squeeze bottle it’s in a pump.  And these below are the ones I was talking about being careful when selecting the RIGHT product.

SBS-055100

This one seems right because it’s the Bounce Back Curl in “Curl Cream” form, but it’s NOT the one I tried.SBS-055101

This is the RIGHT one.  It’s the Curling Revitalizer not Curl Cream. (I have not tried the curl cream, but would love to if I ever get my hands on some!)

SBS-055102

This last one is a Curl Enhancer and also says Bounce Back Curl on it.  So just remember that you’re looking for the Revitalizer, not cream, not enhancer but the bottles seem to look similar.  You can buy it in the Sally’s Beauty Supply store in person or online.  I’ve also seen it at Target & JcPenney once.  If you are interested in trying the other two they are listed in the online store above in the side where it lists similar products.  The revitalizer seems to be the most expensive of the three, listed at $15.99 while the others are $13.99 and $12.99 respectfully. Have you guys ever tried this out? Do you want to? Let me know your trials below! x

Beauty Basics: Chosungah 22 Foundation + Lipsticks “Mini” Tutorial

So here is a MINI makeup tutorial using Chosungah 22 foundation (01 Porcelain) and their flavored lipstick products! I look super tired because it was really early in the morning, which is why this is a “mini” tutorial and I use only a few images mainly to showcase the foundation + flavored lipsticks in action.  A FULL tutorial using their foundation, but will all the steps, will be up very soon.


These are the products I used for this look. They are Chosungah 22 01 Porcelain for both foundations liquid and round compact.  I used my usual 02 Vanilla Revlon concealer. Loreal Paris “Neon Skirt” but I only used the purple & white for this look because I was working and didn’t want to go over the top wild! I used my LA Splash Proof Sealer/Base which is one of my favorite things because it helps keep your eye shadow on all day for those ones that tend to come off 10 minutes after you put them on… L’Oreal Double Extend Mascara, Victoria Jackson bronzer, which is one of my favorites but I accidentally dropped half of it down the drain in Chicago a few years ago and it’s pretty expensive so I rarely use it.  I also used their “Golden Pea Tea” flavored lipstick which is a tint of light pink & for the holidays my Victoria Secrets Beauty Rush Purple Glitter Gloss.

img_2594This is my face before adding anything at all. No makeup and slightly pimply.


This photo to cut short is right after I added the foundation & concealer but had no other makeup on.

This is after adding just the purple & white eye shadow (applying my base first), bronzer, mascara & eyeliner with their “Golden Peach Tea” pink tinted lipstick (I told you it’s more of a chap stick than a “pink” lipstick”).


And this is the final look after adding my VS Beauty Rush Purple Glitter Gloss.  There were a few other photos, but I want to do a proper tutorial with better photos. You can definitely see the difference in my face with no makeup and adding the Chosungah foundation though! At the end I really could of taken a wet tissue across my eyebrows to remove the foundation.  It makes my eyebrows darker and cleans the makeup out of them, but I was at my desk so I didn’t.

Their foundation has become my everyday foundation now so there will be a lot of tutorials & photo shoots soon using their brand. Wait and see! x
