Mini Sephora Haul

I don't usually spend much on make-up but I think I've been spending too much time on this website that I'm openly exposed to advertised beauty products that I didn't even know existed, and will therefore buy due to my insane curiosity. Anywho, I guess that's why I actually bought something from Sephora the last time I went, rather than walking in and out like I usually dolol

Well, anyways, this is a really small haul with products that many of you probably already know. I guess I'm just slow at this makeup thing ahah So first of all, here are all of the products I bought..

 Products from Top to Bottom:
Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay
NARS Radiant Cream Concealer in Custard
Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay
Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector (it's a mouth full to say huh)


 Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay
 Here's the inside of this beautiful eyeshadow palette(:
It features 12 taupe-hued neutrals and comes with a double-ended shadow/crease brush.
I think the colors are very pretty so I can finally see why everyone loves it so much!!
You get a great color payoff and I think that the palette is versatile so you can use it to
achieve numerous looks. I can't wait to try them all out, I've only used 4 colors so farlol

 Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector
 I actually didn't see too many reviews on this product but the reviews
that I did see were fairly good. Most said that it is best for those with oily skin so I was like
"yupp..that's me" ahah. This primer is supposed to control the excess oil on your face by
minimizing the pores to create a matte look that should last about 12 hours.
The box says that you can either put it on before or after foundation 
so you can reapply whenever you feel like it. 

I've only had this product for a week so I haven't used to it too much but if you're
interested I can do a more in-depth review later on once I get to see the pros and cons of this product.
Just make sure you let me know in the comments if you would like a separate post for this!!

NARS Radiant Cream Concealer in Custard
When I was researching this, it seemed like every makeup guru/blogger had this concealer
and I wouldn't blame them. I've tried this concealer out a couple of times and I love how opaque
it is and how it makes the area around my eyes brighter and seemingly more flawless(:
I don't really have dark bags or circles to begin with but ehh, the less discoloration, the betterlol

Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay
The reason why I didn't put up a picture for the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer is because this was a re-purchase for me so I didn't think to give it its own photoshoot. I already had a tube of it but it was running low. My first time purchasing this product was from Ulta. I really love this eyeshadow primer because it really does what it's meant to do and that is to prime your eyelid and prevent your eyeshadow from creasing, as well as keeping the colors vibrant. I've had this eyeshadow primer for about 2 years now and it still works wonderfully^_^

So that is my small take on all of the products so far. I bet most of you already have these items, but still, what are your thoughts of them? How are they working for you? Please feel free to drop a comment below to share your thoughts!!

On an entirely different note, I can't believe New Year's is almost here ( ꒪Д꒪)ノ. This year really did go by so fast, well at least to me it did, it may have gone longer than expected for some of you ahah Still, 2014 is just around the corner (not kidding, it's  2 days from now (○o○) ) and I hope the new year will bring lots of smiles, laughs, and wonderful surprises for all of you lovelies out there 。^‿^。

Well, that's it for now. Thank you for reading and I'll see you again soon!! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

OOTD: Winter Black

It really has been a long timeO_O I seriously don't remember the last time I logged on to this website. I am really sorry I haven't been good at updating this blog of mine but with finals and work, I just got so overwhelmed>_< But while we're on that subject, I hope everyone who's in school did well on their finals!!I just finished last Monday so I am so happy to be free. But shortly after I had to hurry and do all my Christmas shopping so that was pretty hectic as well.

I bought mostly gifts for my family and friends but I did snag some things for myself that I will show you shortly in my next post (I promise that one won't take 2 months like this one ahah).

I really feel like I spent way too much this year. I think it's the season, like there's something about Christmas that makes me a very giving person.....which is bad since I'm close to being broke. Sighs...I need to plan better next year...

Anyways, here's a long overdue OOTD!!I took it earlier today and I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't freezing my butt off. The wind was blowing at about 15-20 mph and I had to fix my hair a whole bunch of times. I tried not to show it and I think I did pretty well but maybe next time I should include some "behind the scenes" pictures so you could see and feel the pain and suffering with me, because as they say, sharing is caring 〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)  ahah

 Crop top from Charlotte Russe
Skirt and Accessories from H&M
Cardigan from SammyDress
Shoes were bought by my boyfriend from my Pinterest for Christmas last yearlol

 It was probably really dumb of me to eat a full course meal before taking these pictures....
And since it was freezing, I'm not sure if my arm is holding onto my body for warmth 
or trying to hold down all the food in my bellylol

So how are all of you guys doing??Have you all finished your Christmas shopping??I still have one or two and yes I know it's extremely late since Christmas is 2 days from now but I don't see them until after so I'm safe^_^

I've really missed all of you and I am definitely going to start blogging more again, especially with this long break I have(: Please comment below if you liked this OOTD and also, you can tell me about your favorite Christmas memory if you'd like. I would love to hear about it!!

Thank you very much for reading and I will see you soon!!°˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
