SoothingSista XO Memebox #eyeloveSF Eyeshadow Quad

I've finally got it!! I was going back and forth for a long time trying to decide if I should buy it and I finally made the leap to make the purchase last month. I do have to admit that I haven't been following Stephanie (or Soothing Sista) for too long but from what I've seen of her, I'm really digging her vibe. She's exactly what I would want to look like if I had the guts (and money) to dye my hair all sorts of colors and to don edgy clothing. 

So when I saw Stephanie was going to come out with her own palette, I knew I had to check it out.

Seventeen Cheek Stamps

I love going to the UK and finding make-up and skincare products that we don't have here. In fact, that's my main goal when I shop around at Boots and Superdrug. On my second to last trip to Boots, I found these guys and decided to take a chance.

H&M and Urban Outfitters Haul

This past weekend, I accompanied my friend on a shopping adventure. She is basically revamping her entire wardrobe so we decided to go to some shops to find just the right pieces. We went to The Forum Carlsbad and raided H&M and the sale racks at Urban Outfitters. Check out the outfits I got!

Current Favorites #2

I'm back with my second installment of my current favorite products! This month I'm featuring my new favorite foundation: Make Up For Ever HD. I tested this foundation about three weeks ago and I have been using it since then. A few days ago, I decided I'd purchase a full-sized bottle. Yes, it is a bit pricey at $43, but it lasts forever because you barely need any. The coverage is medium buildable, and it is a demi-matte finish (at least on me). MUFE HD Foundation makes my skin look absolutely flawless without making it look cakey.

I have a huge gripe with most brow gels on the market, whether it's drugstore or high-end, and it's that most of them don't actually hold my brows in place. However, Maybelline's Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara does everything I need it to. It tints and holds which is not something I can say for the countless brow mascaras I've used.

The Urban Decay Perversion Mascara has been a long time favorite of mine when it comes to layering mascaras. Alone, this doesn't do much for my eyelashes, but layered on top of another mascara, it does wonders. It volumizes and lengthens my lashes quite nicely without clumping. Another plus is that it is really really black.

MAC's lipliner in Soar has also made my list because of how nice it looks on my lips. Yes, I completely bought into the hype*, but I get why it sells out pretty much everywhere. I think Soar is a shade that works for everyone. It adds color to the lips without looking over the top. Yes, I wear it alone like Kylie Jenner, but sadly it only stays on for maybe an hour before it starts fading. It might just be my lips or the fact that this lipliner isn't meant to be worn by itself. Regardless, Soar has earned a permanent place in my handbag/make-up bag.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss - #29

Does anyone else think this looks like Topshop's The Damned? But slightly more blue? I need to start keeping track of all the shades I have before my collection becomes too ridiculous. I have to say, though, that I'm crazy about this color. I think it goes really well with my complexion and it's a bright enough shade that it grabs your attention, but it's not too ridiculous.

I think Rimmel has done really well with the Kate Moss collection. There is something for everyone and they're all fairly cheap. I myself own at least 4 shades. No, they're not super long-lasting, but standards can't be too high when you're talking about drugstore products.
