NARS Eyeshadow!






Alrighty, as promised, here is my first NARS product!

It is a single eye shadow in 'Silent Night' and let me just say.. It's a beauty.

I received it in the mail just under a week ago, and have been so busy and couldn't upload but I finally got the chance today. I also wore it yesterday (Sunday, August 17) and I am in love with the color pay off. 

It is a gold color with many flecks of shimmer and sparkle, and is right up my alley. I love browns and golds on my lids personally, and this one has quickly become a favorite of mine. 

Now I do want to say that I am not bragging, in fact I will say that I did not order this off of the original NARS website. ( insert crowd gasps here. )

If I were to buy this from the website, this small compact would of cost me almost 30 dollars, and I am not one who spends loads of money on well, anything. I actually stumbled across this piece on Storenvy, from a seller that was just clearing her unused or lightly used makeup, and scored this for only 10.50 shipped. A steal right?

So I would definatly buy NARS products from the original place now that I know what good quality their products are, but also if I am on a budget ( like now since I am about to be in college ) I do not mind ordering items such as this from other people, AS LONG AS THEY ARE CLEAN. Just to make that clear. 

But all in all, I am in love with this eye shadow, and I am so glad I purchased it. Leave a comment down below telling me what your first NARS product was/is or even what you want to be your first product. 

This is the end ( for now ) of these sort of product reviews for a while, as I said I am about to be attending college for the first time, so I will be focused on that. However, I do have some ideas about some new DIY blog posts, and also the tips I have for college freshman, or things of that sort. 

If you have any suggestions for blog posts, leave them in the comments as well(:

Keep Calm and Sparkle On,

MAC Lippie!





Isn't crazy how something so small can make a person happy?

My first ever MAC lipstick in Angel!

I was so excited to be able to buy my first item from MAC the other day, and even more excited to receive it in the mail yesterday. 

It matches perfectly to my lip shade, and gives them a finishing gloss look, and I am absolutely in love with it! I was really scared to order online with out swatching it and all that ( I know, bad right? ) but when I received it, I fell in love with it.

That's not the end of my MAC dreams either, as I am going to ( hopefully ) buy another one or two in the next few days. I bought this one straight from the MAC site, but I think I am going to try my first blog sale, and buy some from there as well. 

Along with these lipsticks, I also bought my first NARS product, which is a single eye shadow, and of course I will take photos and share that with you guys as well! 

But this was just a quick update blog, as I have not written one in a while other than the spur-of-the-moment one at midnight this morning. 

I am finally achieving at least one of my dreams of owning "high-end" makeup, and I am so excited!
Thanks for reading, and comment down below one of the high-end products that is on your wishlist!
( P.S. That may or may not be a future blog post (; )

Feelings.

Very very VERY quick post.

This is not going to be a typical blog post that I would post, one because it is midnight and I should be sleep and two because I am just going to pour some feelings out.

Feelings are a weird concept to me.. I don't understand them at all. Not like physical feelings like sadness and sickness (although those are weird too) but rather liking someone.

Now I've had a stupid crush on the same guy for a while now, fading in and out my whole high school career.. It seems as if I'm in the friend zone and can't get out. Probably won't. But its weird to think that a certain person can hold your interest for that long, but doesn't even have the same feelings in return, right? I just do not get how I haven't moved on from this guy, like I want to but it just seems as though he just draws me back in.

I look back at the pictures we have taken over the years and I just get a goofy smile on my face, and I daydream about what it would be like to be with him.. Always hoping that one day it will happen.

I am up this late doing that exact thing. Looking at pictures, daydreaming (if you can even call it that) and reminiscing on certain memories... and I am smiling. I have a love/hate relationship right now with it.

But most importantly I am thinking that it is okay to have this "stupid crush" because it just reminds me that I am a normal human, and I am going to want things I can't have.. And I am just going to have to live with it. This comes with a lot of things in life, and I know that I am just beginning to experience it, seeing as I am a college freshman this year. (annnnnd I'm pretty sure I am going to see a lot more of this guy.)

In the end, I am just going to have to deal with these feelings, because it looks as if they aren't going away anytime soon. But I'm okay with that(:
