recent buys!

hello. so i was going to do a things i am wanting at the moment post but i can't actually think of anything that i really want! lol so i am going to do a post about things i bought recently =D

this is the rare earth mask from kiehls. i waited over a month for this mask because it was SOLD OUT company wide! i had a couple samples of this mask and it is just amazing! i really really like this mask. a little goes a long way. a jar is 5 oz for i think 23 dollars. it will last you a really long time because the formula is really thin therefore u a little goes a long way.

my new favorite mattifying product! i tried it a couple of times and it really works. if used in conjunction with a primer it will keep your make up on all day and keep you less oily for a longer period of time. at first i thought it would just be like the matte cream from mac but this is so much better! love it

new favorite lip product! my lips have been incredibly dry for some weird reason even though i've been drinking lots and lots of water. normally i would use aquafina chap stick and it would be enough. but it wasn't working so i bought this. this product is really really awesome. its 9 bucks for a tube and it comes in different flavor! mine is coconut and it smells divine. and it also works wonderfully. love it!

another laura mercier product. except this one i am not 100% about. might actually return it actually. its just like any concealor except it feels really really drying. the coverage is good but its too drying for me. i think i just got a dud. maybe i'll just go exchange it. =)

this lipstick is eh. the color is too dark for me. btw the color is 'caramel' it is very creamy and smooth but the color isn't for me. i think i might just go exchange it for some color that i actually like. lol

so anyway that's all for now. if you want to see me ( =D ) then you can go on my youtube. hehe

hello =)

hello everyone! so i haven't blogged in over a month.. i just haven't been in the writing mood. school has been hectic. i really really am stressed out because of school and work. i work at a place where theres not much to do but pretend to work. it really depresses me because im the type of person that rather have lots of work to do than do nothing and be bored. i know i am still getting paid but i feel like im cheating someone when i have nothing to do =/. also because i work in a doctor's office there are many types of people that come in and out of the office. some patients are just really really "urghal;ksdjflksd" and other are really really nice. but overall im really really tired of my job.
also, another reason that i am really stressed is because of school. my first year of community college i went to this counselor and he told me a list of classes that i have to take to be able to transfer. today i went to another counselor and he told me that i've been taking classes that does not apply to my major at all. so i am stuck at my college for about another 3 years. fml. but he said that i will have time to raise my gpa and get into a really good school (ucla). that is my goal for now. im really stressed because i was hoping to be able to transfer next year. but i am a strong person and i will move on from this.
but overall i've just been emotionally and physically drained. i think it might have something to do with my birth control pill. i recently changed pill and i've been really really emotional and i've been breaking out like crazy. everything just adds to my insanity =/ but anyway... the only really good news lately is my grades. =) my boyfriend says that i am a naturally good writer but i never believed him. but i am starting to. because i spend 1 hour on a paper and i get an A in it. and without trying too. lol. this makes me happy. anyway... i think i will do some make up talk now. hehe i think i am going to copy swtest2lips and do a things i am lemming at the moment =) hehe i hope its okay with you!
