NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Swatches (Pic HEAVY)

Why hello there... I'm BAACCK! Sorry for the LONG hiatus, I wasn't getting any LOVE (readers/comments/followers etc.) and I've had the runs all week, so I decided to take a short break.


Anyway, I have been DYING to buy some loose pigments... so I did a lil research and concluded that I should try the NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Loose Pigments. Since I'm asian, I waited until these were on sale, 20% off and free shipping at http://www.cherryculture.com/. And since these things were so freaking cheap ($1.50 per 10gram bottle) I decided to buy every single color! :0D

First of all, if you guys have not tried NYX cosmetics, you SHOULD... asap! NYX is a low-end drugstore brand sold at Ulta, perfume shops, and online. Many of the eyeshadows, lipglosses, and lipsticks are said to be comparable to higher-end brands such as MAC and are extremely pigmented.

I ultimately decided to get these particular pigments because they are dirt cheap. My friend and I split the cost of the pigments and divided them evenly into clear plastic bead containers that we bought at Joann fabrics.

Total, I spent $15 on all 30 colors and $4 for the bead container. :0D hehehehe DEFINITELY BEATS BUYING ONE MAC PIGMENT.

For all of you curious people, here are swatches and photos of each color. :0P``` (i apologize in advance for the horrible picture quality - bad lighting and bad camera)

NYX Pinky Natural round lipgloss, honey-snow white-harmonica round lipsticks

Swatches (without flash) With flash (i think)
Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase. Some of the colors are more pigmented than others and the consistency of each color is VERY different. If you like super shimmery colors then I would definitely recommend these.
My only complaint is the messiness of the pigments. They aren't true pigments like MAC pigments, they have a consistency of a soft powder (think flour). Some of the colors are SO deeply pigmented that you don't need to use a primer, while others are so sheer, that they only give off a hint of color... with or without a primer. :0)
For the price, I'm definitely NOT complaining. Buy here OR here, the 2nd site is cheaper.
So that's it for this post. TOOK FOREVER! Anyway, let me know what else you want me to blog about (in that lil chat box to the right) ---------------------------->

Who Knew Cornrows Were So Easy To Do?

I'm bAAAAAAaaaaaaaaack!


Where have I been? No where... I just decided that it wasn't worth my time to blog since I obviously have no readers, no comments, no followers etc. :0( But I'm bored today and I have today off (although I'm still working from home today cause our new assistants aren't capable of doing what they are asked) UGH


I'm also on my period right now too in case you're wondering.

But Yeah... I was really bored this weekend and have been wanting to do partial cornrows like BoA's. I think next time... or next time I go clubbing or something, I'm going to do them more diagonal and of course smaller.


*click click the picture for a bigger view*


I think we look like twins. :0D My mom was like... "OH MY GOSH! ARE YOU TRYING TO BE BLACK? DON'T WEAR THAT IN PUBLIC... but it looks cute on you." hahha



Another reason why I needed to blog is becausae I have been finding the BEST deals on random things, and of course I just had to share!



URBAN DECAY Deluxe Eyeshadow in Ransom!

I've been dying to get this color. I have been searching ALL over for the perfect dark purple shade. I hate all the purple shadows that are either too light, or too pinky. This one is a deep royal plum and it goes on soo soft and smooth like butter. The texture of Urban Decay is my favorite (next to Stila shadows). But this shadow was freaking $18!


$18! No way would I ever pay $18 for a single shadow. I found the best seller on ebay, who sold it to me for $9.95 plus free shipping and threw in a full sized Hard Candy lipgloss. :0D If you're interested in getting really cheap Urban Decay products, I highly recommend this seller: best ebay seller EVER


Swatch of RANSOM.



My next great deal:


This cute pinkish/purplish leather handbag by the SAK. I was browsing purses at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and stumbled upon this purse. It was on sale for $129 and the leather and craftmanship is top notch quality! I love it cause the handles fold under and can change from a hobo to a satchel. Also, this bag is a pretty close dupe to the popular Botkier Sasha hoba... but like $500 less! Here's a photo of the Botkier Sasha that I stole from someone's website.



ALso from the Anniversary sale: Steve Madden riding boots. $99.00 I believe! :0D




Target: CUTE CUTE Gladiator sandal heels! IN MY SIZE! $20





Target: Brown mini wedges $7.00


Lastly, I've been wanting an epicare for so long, but they're like $14 for a metal coil with handles. Demonstration for those of you who don't know what it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGbvrEQ4NyI


I went on ebay once again and got a cheapo version from HK. I paid $2 including shipping and it works wonders! It's super easy to use and is basically like threading. I just sit at my computer and do my uppper lip (cause i have a crazy mustache), sideburns, and hair line! hahahhaa... its sick but it gets all the fine hairs, fuzz, coarse hair (upper lip of course) and it's pretty much painless if the hair is super short. It feels tingly, like you're being shocked a little. :0)
hee hee... so that's it for now. It's super hot outside so I'm probably gonna go to freddies and buy an inflatable boat so I can float at the lake. adios
