Stila Convertible Color Review

Stila Convertible Color Review

stila convertible color

Overview:

I tried this product in store and kept thinking about it until I finally bought it! I didn’t want to buy this full price at Ulta because it’s $20 retail value, so I got it for three bucks off on eBay. You can also buy it here on Amazon or at Ulta to earn some points. I bought it because the Poppy shade is a natural looking rose and cream gives a nice finish.

Unique Qualities:

This is an extremely versatile cream color that can be used for cheeks and lips or anywhere else you see fit.

Dr. Paw Paw Tinted Balm Review

Dr. Paw Paw Tinted Balm Review

paw paw_01_square

Hi there everyone! I hope this review reaches you well. It’s been awhile since I last talked to all of my lovely readers! Hope you’re excited for this review!

Overview:

For this overview, we’ll do something a bit unorthodox. Imma tell you a lil story chillun.
As I wrote in my little goodbye post before my temporary hiatus, I was at Carnegie Mellon’s musical theater intensive for six weeks. I had basically zero time off campus but we went to see Ant Man… and then, an opportunity.
An Urban Outfitters.
It’s not even that I like Urban Outfitters. I think it’s extremely overpriced and overrated. But hey, I hadn’t bought any makeup for like… three weeks. I was going through withdrawls. I have a problem. I know. It’s horrible.
So I went in and these tubes caught my eye. Dr. Paw Paw’s Tinted Medicated Balm. I tried them and thought they were unique and would protect my skin while still giving me some color. Perfect for quick makeup on campus. The counselors started trying to lasso us out so I bought the red and coral tint and ran out of there and onto the bus.
Great decision. I love this stuff!

Rice Water Bright Cleansing Oil Review

Rice Water Bright Cleansing Oil Review

oil

Overview:

I bought this cleansing oil on eBay here. You can also purchase this oil on Amazon here. This oil is meant to clean your face of all makeup.

Unique qualities:

It is different from many Western cleansers because it’s an oil based cleanser, unlike many others. It has a light and good scent too!

Packaging:

This is in a pump bottle. It holds about 6.4 ounces.

Value:

For 11 some dollars this is a pricier cleanser. I really like it, but you can also try the Garnier oil cleanser on Amazon or in store and use coupons.

Skinfood Tomato Cool Jelly Tint Review

Skinfood Tomato Cool Jelly Tint Review

tomato tint 1

Hi there everyone! My latest find was the Tomato Cool Jelly Tint from Skinfood. As some of you probably know by now I have a bb cream and lip tint addiction so I have to try everything.

Note: When I use lip tints, the color always concentrates more on the weird inner patches of my lips and stains my bottom lip more than my top lip. This may not be the same for you so keep that in mind!

Overview:

I bought this tint on eBay for $5.44 in the shade Berry Tomato. It’s a natural looking rosy pink color that can be layered for a deeper stain. I purchased mine here but you can also get it here.

As part of my widely-read gyaru guide, I wanted to include some examples of gyaru style and makeup to help give all of you love readers some ideas for your new style adventure. Click here for part one of the series and here for part two if you haven’t read them yet!

Clothing:

There are a multitude of gyaru subtypes that are popular, and this set only addresses a few. Some common types are above. A lot of gyaru looks are meant to be sweet- light pinks, bows, flowy blouses and tiers are common, especially in the hime and onee gyaru style. Kogal (or kogyaru) was the first main gyaru type and is characterized by customizing a school uniform. Rokku gyaru is an edgier, rock-inspired look and mode originated as a monochromatic and mature look. Keeping these descriptions in mind, it’s just a matter of personal taste and experimentation before you create an outfit like the ones above! Google (of course) and gyaru forums are also great for inspo.

What to Wear: Waterpark Edition What to Wear: Waterpark Edition by lydia11-11 featuring a blue beach towel

I love summer! It’s only natural because I’m a high school student. Summer is like the savior of stressed teens everywhere.

One of the things I’m most looking forward to this summer is hanging out at a waterpark in Pittsburgh during the Carnegie Mellon MT program I’m attending. Waterparks are a great way to run around and get exercise, hang out with friends and relax. Whenever I head out to a waterpark, however, my friends are always wondering what to wear or bring. I created this set and post to help you pack easier!

I’ve gotten so many fellow students tell me they’re unsure of how to dress for important high school exams like the ACT, SAT and AP tests. I wanted to create a little guide for all of you who want to have some practical examples of outfits that’ll keep you comfy during and after your long tests.

Clothing:

Layers are exceptionally important. You have to be prepared for super cold air conditioning and even for super humid rooms. By bringing a sweater and wearing a thin shirt and leggings you can account for any temperature.

Hi there lovelies! The Fashion Mentor’s back with another easy guide to everyday fashion. As a kid going away for the summer, I know figuring out what to pack, wear and what to leave behind can be overwhelming. I went to Concordia’s Japanese Language Camp two years in a row and became a master of practical summer dressing- this set will give you an example of what you need to take you from the campfire to the campus, or anything else in between. (This would also be perfect for a day camp or summer school!
