Too Faced Better than Chocolate!!!

Hey! What's up? You know what hasn't been up? My blog posts, ugh.  I've had such a busy past couple weeks school-wise and haven't been able to post very often lately. I know. I suck, I'm sorry. Fortunately, I'm getting back into the swing of things, and I'm planning something fun for the upcoming week that I'll update you on a little later :)

Anyways, I took a break from college for a few days and came back home.  Besides being ecstatic to see my cats again, I came home to THIS:




GUYS DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT THIS??  Several weeks back, HSN had this set on sale for $49 and free shipping for one day only.  I happened to wake up early to a post from Nouveaucheap about this that day, and good thing I did because I was lucky enough to be able to snatch it up before it sold out.  This was an incredibly good deal, let me just show you what's inside to prove it to you.  Just a reminder, I am SO excited about this! ~let's go~

First Impression: Wet n Wild Coloricon Contouring Palette

Hey guys, I have an exciting post to make today.  I was wondering around in my Walmart the other day and found a new product that I had just heard about from Nouveaucheap the other day.  You probably already gathered this from the title but lets build up the suspense, drumroll anyone? ~





It's the Wet n Wild Coloricon Contouring Palette!!!

Okay, now that we are done with the suspense, let's get down to business.  This palette is sold exclusively at Walmart for $3.93 (.46 oz), and is the same price and size as their cabana bronzers (but much thinner and more compact).  The shade I picked up (the only shade at this Walmart) is "Caramel Toffee."  Here are a couple pictures that show them as they appear in the display.




As you can see, they don't have their own special display, they are just integrated with other permanent products... which makes me think these are NOT limited edition- yay!


Here's a closer look at where they are in the display.

How to: Start a skin care routine

Hey guys! How are ya?  I've been doing a lot of contemplating and thinking about what my next post would be, then I had a few epiphanies.  First, I decided I wanted to do an informative post that a lot of every day people like me could relate to.  Second, my roommate has been having skin issues lately.  Since I'm kind of a skincare pusher, I've been trying to help her develop a routine that works for her skin type.  So, I put the two together and thought "Why not make a post about finding the right skin care for your skin.  I have a lot of bases to hit with this one so lets get started~



My routine, in one picture


This picture right here is an overview of the products I use in my routine.  I know, it's a lot.  And I know it's not too convincing for people who have no idea what to do with their skin to hop on the skincare train, but here me out-everything has its purpose.  Before I dive into my tips and what is used for what, keep one rule in mind (well, two now that I think about it): 1. These are guidelines based off of what works for me. If you don't have the same skin type or preferences as I do, these might not work as well or at all for you.  2. This is a trial and error process. You know how your mom told you "You have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince"? That applies here.
