I'm alive... and 40 Beauty Questions

 This tag has been going around for a little while and it seemed fun so here goes dolls ..
How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice, pretty sure this is standard. Morning and night, gotta get the dirties off.

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
Combination. I have an oily T-Zone and dry cheeks and such.
-What is your current facial wash?
Angels on Bare Skin and Herbalism. I really love both of them. Angels is a good everyday one and Herbalism is a good one for oily skin but I CANNOT stand the smell. YUCK!

-Do you exfoliate?
Yes, Angels on Bare Skin is a mild exfoliate and I use this everyday but two times a week a exfoliate that's slightly more abrasive.
-What brand do you use?
Lush =/ Noticing a trend here are we?

-What moisturizer do you use?
Dear John by Benefit for night time. Seriously a godsend for winter months and Ultralight Moisturizer for the day by Lush.
-Do you have freckles?
No, my sister does though and I'm a tad jealous.
-Do you use eye cream?
I want to say Eyecon by Benefit but I haven't been using it for a while and that would be cheating huh?
-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Not so much. I don't have amazing skin by any means but I'm not prone to breakouts but I do suffer from the occasional painful blemish that forms under the skin.
-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
No this seems incredibly scary to me as people have told me it is really harsh .. and I happen to be a baby so there.

-What foundation do you use?
MakeupForever HD foundation, it's okay. I'm not really over the moon about it.
-How about concealer?
I use Select Cover-Up in NW20 by MAC.
-Do you know your undertone color?
Warm. I always thought I was cool toned until someone promptly told me how wrong I was.
-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I like them, I feel they aren't worth the hassle if all I'm doing is going to the movies but for big nights out I think they are essential.
-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yeah but I always run out and I have like 10 mascaras rotating at the moment. I know, bad girl.
-What brand of mascara do you use?
Every kind. I feel like with mascara it's stupid to be a brand snob.
-Sephora or MAC?
This is a hard one, I like the variety of Sephora but I love the collections from MAC.
-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
MAC Brushes and Shu Curler.
-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Mostly my Urban Decay Primer Potions, I have the Original, Eden and Sin. I also use shadesticks and paintpots as well.
-For the face?
I have the Makeup Forever HD primer in Green but I like Benefit's That Gal the most. It smells yummy.
-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I work in an office so I usually stick to the neutrals. When I'm not in the office I love using cranberry-esque(really is that allowed, lol) colors because they make my green eyes pop.
-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I prefer liquid when I want my eyeliner to be the focus point but gel when I just want to put on some eyeliner.
-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never, ladies must be careful when doing such things.
-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I like them but I'd much rather prefer pressed shadows.
-Do you use mineral makeup?
No, it makes me itchy.
-What is your favorite lipstick?
Urban Decay's Naked at the moment but it's always changing.
-How about lipgloss?
Benefit's Life on the A List.
-What is your favorite blush to use?
Right now I'd have to say Sunbasque but normally Spaced Out.
-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
I did when I first got into makeup but never now.
-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Sometimes. I feel like sometimes you pay for what you get.
-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
Yes going to mine this weekend!!!
-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I've considered it. My best friend is a hair dresser and she wanted me to take some with her but I'm not too sure.
-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Sometimes with my liquid eyeliner.
-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
When ladies use to heavy a bronzer and their faces tend to look a little dirty or orange and honestly which one is worse?
-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Neutral mostly.
-Which celebrity always has great make up?
I LOVE Katy Perry's makeup. I also like Kim Kardashian but who doesn't?
-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Lip Balm
-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes, I didn't wear a drop of makeup all through highschool and it didn't bother me then and doesn't so much now.
-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I think I look okay but I think I look better with makeup.
-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I'd have to say a tie between MAC and Urban Decay.-What do you think of Makeup?
I don't think anyone that dislikes makeup would bother filling out a 40 question tag.

Mac Haul - Apologies

Sorry again for the delay, I didnt think my flu was as bad as I thought and apparently I was wrong. This haul is a little old because I've had the products for more than a week but I wanted to share regardless.

I started my mall journey at the candy kiosk because I have a WEAKNESS for Razzles. It's a problem. They are my favorite candy item ever. Everytime I see them (which is not often) I always buy a ton and try to save them but it usually never happens. I went shopping when The Warm and Cozy and Love Lace collection came out and picked up a few things.

First is Feline kohl pencil which is just a backup. Next we have Nurture Shadestick, Equality Lustre Lipstick, Glamour for All Lipglass.
I usually never wear nudes because I can never find one that doesn't make me look like a walking zombie but this one is amazing especially paired with Glamour for all.

From the permanent line i got two blushes:

The last two which look similar in my crappy picture but I can assure you are not.
The middle is Peachykeen and the last Sunbasque (which happens to be my new favorite).

I apologize if this seems a little rushed but the boyf is on the way over and I am hungry, but this past weekend I have picked up a few (yeah right) Lush items that I will be posting next so look out for that! Night Sweetcheeks!

M.I.A for a little

Hey dolls!

It feels like forever since I have posted and I just wanted to check in and let you know i'll be back with an upcoming MAC and Forever21 haul.

Recently, I have come down with a MAJOR flu. I have an ear infection, scratchy throat, stuffed nose the works. (Not that you wanted to know the dirty details). I have been meaning to get my butt on blogger but seriously my daily outfit has consisted of sweats, the boyfriend's t-shirts and my slippers, and on the face there has been ZIP. Not cute, not cute at all and I figured, Jenny no one wants to see you looking like a bum so I have resisted. I am feeling slightly better though so tonight you shall hopefully see my next blog update.

Anyone know any good flu remedies? I want this sucker gone!

Weekend Haul

My first haul post ... are you excited? I'm excited. Well this weekend was a long one off of work so I decided to hit up the two malls in my area. The thing about these two malls is the fact that they are five minutes away from each other which I find ridiculous.The stores that I favor in one mall aren't in the other and vice versa so essentially you have to visit both. So that means lots of driving and lots of crowds. But I braved it all anyway.

First I went to Menlo Park and picked up some minor things from Sephora and the Mac counter in Nordstrom. Then I ventured to Woodbridge Mall. Included below are also some recent CCO finds.

Included in this picture is:
1. Korres Lip Savor Roll with Pomegranate, Quince and Jasmine Lip Butter in full sizes. This was an awesome deal. A regular full size lip butter is $9.00 at Sephora and this Lip Savor Roll is $19.50.
2. Mac Stylistics Collection -  a Sheer Mystery Powder in Medium. Purely for the packaging. =) From the CCO
3. Benefit's Bright Lights Big City set that was originally $48 that I snagged for $35. I planned on getting That Gal primer and figured why not pay a couple dollars more and recieve two other full size products that I've been meaning to try.
4. Mac Spaced Out Blush from the Neo Sci-Fi collection from the CCO
5. Mac By Candlelight MSF
6. Mac Feeling Good TLC
7. Mac Utterly Frivolous from The Fafi Collection again from the CCO
8. My 1651641th EOS lip balm. Clearly an exaggeration but i've bought tons of these I keep them everywhere, my all time favorite lip balm. (as of yet).
9. Covergirl Lash Blast backup, mine is currently running low

(unboxed, hopefully you can see things a little better)

I did also pick up some rings as I have said in a previous post I am on a ring kick

Again, not the greatest of pictures but the first is my owl ring from Charlotte Russe that I'm LOVING, a stackable ring from Forever 21 follows and a charm ring from Heritage 1981. Also a Juicy Couture crown necklace that snuck its way in.

The Lush in Menlo Park was also having the cleanout sale and I managed to pick up some items (of course).
Don't have any pictures of that sadly at the moment but my room currently smells like dreams. If that was possible at all.

If there is anything you would want reviewed or swatched feel free to leave a comment below and I'll be sure to check it out.

Have a good day dollfaces!
