AMAZING MASCARA ♡

Im pretty sure Im not the only one that having a hard time finding the right mascara; Im never a fan of mascara.. I guess its not that I don't care or don't like it; is more of I having found the right one that work for me. I barely have any eyelashes; when i started wearing false eyelashes, thats when I notice my eyes makeup change dramatically! Even after when im done with my eyes makeup... i just HAVE TO apply false lashes or else the look doesn't look complete cause my eyelashes is just to short & no volume what so ever! Yes, i have try different type of mascara but none of the mascara that i had try WOW me!

But everything change since I just recently found a new mascara & im ABSOLUtELY in love with this new mascara! Its By ESTEE LAUDER (DOUBLE WEAR; zero-smudge lengthening mascara. As soon i applied the first coat on I was like omg what just happen lolz! my eyelashes look fuller & longer; even though i know its doesn't give me volume but my eyelashes look fuller as well! What also amaze me that I can actually apply this mascara on my bottom lashes lolz.. trust me I had such a hard time applying mascara on my bottom lashes because I barely have any bottom lashes haha! Most of the mascara I try the wand does not fit for my bottom lashes so i REFUSE to apply any mascara for my bottom lashes!

Now i can said I had found the right mascara that work for me; I love the formula of this mascara. I love the wand & how its so easy to apply on.

Mini Haul; SEPHORA & VICTORIA's SECRET♡

So I decided to stop by Sephora yesterday since I know they have the 15% discount; honestly my intention was just to look around & not buy anything lolz... which that was a major FAILeD; i end up buying MUFE (DUO MAt powder foundation), Tarte (Amazon Clay blush) & Sephora (perfume atomizer) haha. Felt so guilty since i been stoping by Sephora almost every week just to check it out but everytime im there i ended up buying something ughhh thats so bad!

From left to right:
MUFE: DUO MAT powder foundation (205) $32
MY THOUGHT: well i only use it once since i just got it, but so far so good; i really like the coverage & I love the mat finished! One thing kinda bugged me is that my certain part of my face look so flaky but again it can be because i do have some dry patches on my face. Thats might be the reason why I like to use liquid foundation more so that it doesnt make me look flaky (by the way i have combination skin if you're wonder). Well im going to keep testing this out & see how i like it; hopefully it wont break me out since my skin is really sensitive! I love my MUFE HD FOUNDAtioN so i would think i love this powder foundation as well & i heard a lot great review about this product.
What it is: A long-lasting, oil-free mattifying powder foundation for normal to combination skin types.
What it is formulated to do: Provides a shine-free finish that covers blemishes and other imperfections and perfectly evens out the skin tone. SIZE: 0.35 oz (info. from Sephora.com)
http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P177118&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=4028

SEPHORA: Perfume PINK Atomizer $15
My THOUGHT: hmmm not much to said i do like how convinent this perfume atomizer is, definitley perfect for travling since i can put in my fav. body spray or perfume. One thing im concerning is that i heard alot of people said it does leak a little, didnt happen to me yet but I hope not lolz
What it is: An easy-to-fill, mini-spray bottle to take fragrances wherever you go.
What it does:
Now you can take your favorite scent anywhere with this atomizer that fills in seconds—without any messy funnels. Simply pull off the cap, insert the stick into a perfume bottle, and pump the atomizer until it's full. Tough, light, and approved for air travel, its leak-proof container is made of durable aluminum and holds up to 50 Sprays (0.14 oz). The fill level window lets you see when it's time to refill.

TARTE: Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush (NATURAL BEAUTY) $25
MY THOUGHT: They have alot of beautiful shade but i chose Natural Beauty; its like a deep reddish pink color. I love it the color pay off was amazing, so true to color & its so pigmented! Definitely a little go a long way. I have it on for about 5 hours & the color havent wear off yet so thats pretty impressive! Down fall is the price, i found it to be so pricey lolz.. dont think i would wanna buy another one since its like $25 each. Way to pricey for a blush in my opinion.
What it is:A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours.
What it does:
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours.

Parabens- Sulfates- Synthetic Fragrances- Petrochemicals- Phthalates- GMOs- Triclosan
What else you need to know:

I just love how VS bras fit me perfectly & it felt so comfortable like im not wearing anything! Most of my newest bra are from the Miraculous line & im still & always in love with the VEry Sexy line. AS soon as the sale lady introduce me to the Dream Angels Demi Bras my eyes was like clued to it haha; the way it shape & how it look was so flattering; especially the lace design of the bra was so attractive. I just have to get it & yes instead of just buying one I bought 3 lolz. I got the lacy hot pink, black & nude!
