I hope your week is going great so far! I wanted to share a mix of things with you today. First is a quick Face of the Day. Nothing special, just a mostly natural look. The standout factor would be the baby poop khaki green colored lipstick. I loved how it looked because it matched the faded parts of my hair. (My hair isn't green anymore. I have a slight backlog of pictures that I haven't gotten through yet.) The lip shade is Trouble from Lime Crime. I'm not a fan of the brand's founder and I realize there is controversy surrounding the brand so I will not post reviews of their products. I'm not going to be throwing away my LC products so if one shows up on my blog then I will just mention it in passing and that will be all.

There are a few lipstick formulas which are seemingly perfect for work or school. The Glo Minerals Cream Glaze Lip Crayon is one of them. I love lip pencils. I've reviewed a few on this blog and will be comparing these to the NARS Satin Lip Pencils. They seem like the most obvious comparison considering how similar they are in concept and look. The Cream Glaze Crayon shades I will be showing you today are: Chiffon, Praline, Heirloom, Mimosa, Bloom, Dahlia, and Jetset.

I saw a lot of adorable bedazzled and customized graduation caps. I wish I would have done mine!

Along with the happy news I'll be sharing in this update, I will also be touching on some heavier subject matter. I enjoy reading lengthy blog posts so I hope some of you do as well. I haven't opened up on my blog for a long time so... here it goes.

Queen of Highlighters: theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer

mary-lou manizer highlighter thebalm review the balm swatches medium tan nc30 skintone fotd
I haven't posted a review in a long time! It's been about three months to be exact. I remember once making a New Year's Resolution about posting more makeup looks but this is a bit ridic. I didn't mean to forgo reviews but I just haven't bought much new makeup in the past year. Most of the products I own I've already reviewed or featured a bunch of times. And this product isn't even one I own myself, two of my best friends do (and I live with one of them so I might as well say I kinda own it!) I'll need to get one for myself eventually because it's my favorite highlighter. I'm talking about theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer.

As promised in my last post, here's an all-green makeup look. Matching your makeup to your hair color is really fun. I've been enjoying it. If you're not keen on colorful makeup looks, I'll be posting some neutral stuff later on. There are some product reviews coming up as well. I'm finally going to have more time to devote to my blog since I just officially finished my last semester! *tears* Also, my hair didn't fade to this beautiful jade/teal green as quickly as it seems. I actually used a concoction on my hair in order to try and strip as much color as possible. I'm trying to change my hair color in time for my graduation but this Pravana reign just won't let up. Lame jokes aside, I hope you like this look! :)

Here are some more products from my last ColourPop Cosmetics haul. This time I've used their Super Shock Eyeshadow in Coconut and Ultra Satin Lipstick in Mess Around. Once again, my makeup is very monochromatic. This time my color of choice is blue which matches my hair nicely (at least at the time the picture was taken). My hair is currently a jewel-toned shade of green so (spoiler) expect some green makeup looks in the near future! Hope you like this! :]

Today's makeup look showcases a product I recently featured in my ColourPop Cosmetics haul: their Creme Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Puppy. This look is all about warm tones: tons of bronzer, as well as orange and copper on the eyes and on the lips. I was worried that such a warm toned orange on the waterline would make my eyes look sickly but I ended up loving how this turned out. Today's post is short and sweet. I've been very busy lately because the semester is coming to an end and I have a lot of school work. I hope you guys got through April unscathed!

colourpop cosmetics haul review swatches creme eyeliners puppy maybe orange green satin lip matte mess around jellies coconut super shock blue eyeshadow
New makeup purchases are far and few between in this blog lately. Some time over a month ago I decided to treat myself to some makeup from ColourPop Cosmetics. They had just released a lot of new products (brow gels, new lipsticks, eyeliners) so there was a lot to choose from. By the way, they just had a site-wide 20% off sale yesterday *cries*. I wish I had gotten this post up earlier, but, oh well. Although, when I tried to visit their site yesterday I was placed in a queue because of the high traffic they were receiving. They might just extend the sale, who knows. Anyway, here's what I got during my last purchase... 
Edit: The sale has been extended until today (May 1st, 2016 9PM PST).
