Quickie: Shiro Cosmetics Intertubes

Just a short break from the eye bonanza happening on this blog currently. 🙂 Although, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who has gone out of their way to let me know what they thought of it and whether or not a post was helpful for them. If you have any requests for posts, please leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do for you. 🙂 Intertubes are lip thingies from Shiro Cosmetics, aka the place to be for funny geeky people who like makeup, too. I ordered some sample colors during my last weak moment and got for shades: Nyan Cat, Why Not Zoidberg?, Team Buffy, and Sad Keanu. LOL, I mean, really. How did you think I could resist these? Anyway, I’m happy I purchased these small samples as a test run because I’m not really sure about them. I’ve had them for a while, but I don’t know, they just don’t want to seem to work well on me? Here are some photos of me wearing each color: …

Drugstore Finds: Revlon Haul

I never thought I would be the kind of person who couldn’t resist sales. Alas! If it’s close to half-off, I’m in. Here’s a handful of Revlon lip things I got today—2 ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipsticks as per Krysty‘s suggestion, a ColorStay Ultimate Lipcolor, and one ColorBurst Lipgloss. I will review these over the course of the next days, but here are PhotoBooth pictures I took. For no reason at all, other than I love them so freakin’ much. I tried to go for shades I wouldn’t normally be bold enough to wear. It’s the perfect time, since the items were on a huge sale. Might as well, right? Lately, people have been telling me that they like me with a darker lip or that I should try wearing different shades, since I tend to gravitate towards one color family and just buy variations (case in point: NARS Pago Pago & MAC Viva Glam V & Chanel Perlé, which are all quite similar) from the families. Here’s to being more adventurous! I quite like it. …

How Exceptional is the Rouge G L’Extrait’s “Exceptional Hold”?: A Special FOTD Review

I know I said I was on a makeup ban, but what do you expect me to do when my Guerlain SA, Jean, texts me about a 30% off sale. “Resist like a responsible adult, Carina,” you might say. Unfortunately, I can’t hear you as I’m drowning in lipstuff happiness. See, my friend Gracie, keeps asking me if I plan on buying any shades from Guerlain’s Rouge G L’Extrait line. And I’m just always so puzzled by the persistence. I mean, what’s so great about this lip gloss, really? What about it would make me want to drop $48 on one color? Pretty steep, if you ask me. That said, I don’t think I would ever buy it at original price, unless I had a more stable and higher-paying income. For a 30% off sale, though, I think I can forgive myself. So, the Rouge G L’Extrait by Guerlain is a line of “lip colour” that they released pretty recently, in August 2012. It’s a “lip colour” because it looks like a gloss—with a doe-foot …
