You look splendid m’lady!

5 Nov

I happened to go to the good old Ren Fest last month (as i do each year) with a friend and thought id put together a little post of how things went.

To start of, when i told a guy i didn’t want to buy any of his pickles, he flung pickle juice at me shouting ‘no pickles for the pickle hater’ and walked away. ………what.

I did a bit of a lace henna style design in my crease and under my bottom lash line with liquid eyeliner and was quite proud of it. I got a lot of comments on it along with ‘holy cow your hair is so LONG!’ comments. 🙂

Ipsy Excitement!!!

2 Nov

Eeeek! So its been said from Ipsy headquarters themselves that for November we get an Em product!

I cant contain myself. Its most likely going to be just waterliners, pillow plush balms and mascara that we will get.

I hope i don’t get a mascara, i have so many already and i REALLY want to try the Ros Gold waterliner and deep red lip balm so hopefully i get one of those 🙂

What are you hoping to get?

Happy Halloween!

2 Nov

Happy day after Halloween you monsters! What did you dress up as? And if you didn’t dress up, then whats wrong with you!? I was inspired by Promise Phan’s Stitched Voodoo doll video and went as a Stitched Voodoo Queen.

Varsity VoxBox

29 Oct

Alllllrighty well i might be a tad late to the Varsity party but I’m here now and I’m ready to get things started.

In this Voxbox(Varsity themed) i received the following:

Tide Pods
Lip Gloss
Airheads Extremes
Nail strips
Facial cleanser samples and coupons

I have only one thing to say about the Tide pods. I don’t do laundry. My mom does. I use to do it before i got ill but now she does it and she loves the pods, how easy they are, but they are pretty expensive compared to regular detergent.

NYC Big bold Lipgloss was a surprise. I love NYC but i never wear lip gloss anymore. I used to, i mean i used to collect them and wear them like there was no tomorrow but something changed and now i just don’t wear them. Most are very sticky and or tooo glossy and if you have hair thats all the way down to you butt like mine, then you know the horrors of getting your hair stuck in gloss. Ew. The color i was sent was a nice pink toned gloss an although i didn’t like the texture because it was very goopy, it plumps nice and gives you that pleasant tingly feeling. But i was blessed with big plump lips so i don’t see myself using this product that much (if at all) in the future.

The Kiss Nail Dresses were AWESOME! I loooove this brand an i lovvvve the designs.

The Clearasil samples were pretty neat but i like the coupons for some of their other new products better and cant wait to try those out.

Last but not least, AIRHEAD EXTREMES. I love these. Some of my favorite candy right here. Always has been.

Well, until next time my loves,
Summer Josephine

PS. Happy almost halloween. What will you be this year? I have two ideas in mind and i can decide even though i don’t have much time left.

Ipsy October 2013

21 Oct

Hello Beauty

I GOT MY FIRST IPSY BAG!! Ahhhh 😀

I signed up back in August for my birthday and was on the wait-list but i finally am a member now! I was sad i missed Septembers though because it looked like it had some pretty freakin awesome stuff but I’m happy none the less.

My bag contained :

A wet n wild Fergie collection eyeshadow palette in Desert Festival

A Sexy hair blow dry gel

A coastal scents medium shadow brush

LA Fresh face wipes

Zoya nail polish

Now, i love nail polish, addicted to it really, but the three colors they gave out this month weren’t anything too special in my opinion because i have so many like them already. I got the blue one and i must admit it looks much prettier on than in the bottle. So thats good.

I was disappointed that i got face wipes, i mean i can buy them when i go grocery shopping and they are all pretty much the same. But then i read that back of the package where it listed that it contained things like cucumber, aloe vera, vit e and c, and other good things for your face skin. They are not so much ‘makeup remover’ wipes as they are face refreshing wipes and i like that. Theres only ten in a pack though.

I have been wanting a coastal scents brush for Soo long now and this is probably my favorite out of the whole bag. It really does make a difference in how my eyeshadow looks when compared to my ELF brushes. And its so soft!

I wish i didn’t get the blow dry gel because ever since i started using my new shampoo and conditioner (hydra recharge) that Bzzagent sent me, i haven’t needed to blow dry my hair because it dries within 15 minutes now which is quite the feat since i have REALLY long and thick hair. Plus, i have a blood volume problem so whenever i do blow dry my hair, my arms go paralyzed after three minutes. Literally.

The eyeshadow palette is really cool because it has colors i will actually wear. There is a really nice coral color and some browns and tans. One color i even used as highlighter on my cheeks because its my skin color but with a really pretty sheen.

The theme this month was Art of Beauty and the bag was white with pink cursive writing.

All in all, it wasn’t too bad for my first Ipsy bag. But lets hope next month is even better.

Ta ta,

(ah)Em Cosmetics by Michelle Phan

11 Oct

Let me start this out by saying i love, LOVE Michelle Phan and cannot get enough of her… Er… You know what i mean.

She’s brilliant! In many ways. Not only is she amazingly talented with makeup and style, shes a total video game nerd and i love that about her. Plus, shes very inspiring and goes after her dreams.

Now she has released a makeup line! Oh my gosh, how exciting! I was so stoked when she announced it and still am excited for her but theres just one thing…a lot of the stuff is just so *ahem* expensive.

Dont get me wrong, i know that usually means higher quality but if you just released the line, wouldn’t it be best to see how well everything sells and the reaction of buyers first before having them go for such a big price. (A life palette is around 70? Dollars i believe)

There definitely a few things (okay, a lot) that i would LOVE to get from Em like the contour/highlight stick (which is genius) and the pillow plush lip balm. And of course the life palettes, the design is just awesome. But i just cant drop that kind of money like that which is a bit disappointing but who knows what the future holds 🙂

If i ever do end up buying something from Em ill be sure to write about it.

Until next time-
Byeeee for now my lovely’s

L.A Colors pencil Eyeliner

23 Feb

Good morning, afternoon or evening. A lot of people ask me what is my go-to eyeliner so i thought id work up a quick review for you all.

My favorite (so far) eyeliner that i use is LA Colors Pencil Eyeliner in black. It was about a dollar for a pack of two at the Dollar General and i honestly first bought it as a last minute liner emergency and thought it would turn out to be sort of crappy. How wrong i was. This liner goes on so smoothly, so easily. Its a perfect shade of black and it lasts for quite a while. Its not waterproof, but it doesn’t smear. I have been using this liner everyday for about three years now and i plan to continue unless something else proves to be better.

I also love that its not very big so its easy to take with you on the go.

So, thats my favorite eyeliner and review of said liner. Maybe you’l decide to give it a try. Let me know what is your favorite eyeliner in the comments below, id love to try them.
