False eyelashes

I finally got my orders of false eyelashes from ebay today in the mail! I gotta say, I didn't like the outcome of the damaged package of one of them.
You can see the smashed box. The box top easily slid off. It was damaged & not secured. You can see some of the eyelashes are ruined & one of them is falling off. If you girls want to know who the seller is that I purchased this from, here is the link.
The next pics are my other pair of lashes I ordered. They were better packaged & also covered in bubble wrap. Much better! They came with eyelash glue as well. To know who I purchased this pair from, click here.

Vitamin World: Tea tree oil & L-glutathione

So I've been wanting to try tea tree oil (for my face) for the longest time now & I finally found it at Vitamin World. Also, my mom heard on the radio about all these good things that L-glutathione does for your skin, so I decided to give it a try as well. I will blog about my reviews on them after I have a sufficient amount of time to review them.

My current skin care routine

My camera is old & not working for me, so I couldn't take photos. So now, a new higher mp camera is on my wishlist. Anyways, I just wanted to share with you girls my current skin care routine, since it is doing wonders for me. My skin type is acne prone, oily, & sensitive so it's a miracle for me to find a good skin care routine that actually works for me.

Facial cleansers- I switch back & fourth between 2 facial cleansers: Cetaphil daily facial cleanser: for normal to oily skin & St. Ives green tea cleanser.




 Facial scrub: St. Ives Green tea scrub

Toner: Clinique clarifying lotion
Moisturizer: Myra E daily sun protect facial moisturizer w/ vitamin E & spf 15

E.l.f. waterproof eyeliner pen

I saw a bunch of E.l.f. waterproof eyeliner pens & was skeptical about getting one. But I thought to myself, hey it's only $1.00, why not give it a try? I was expecting it to be a "shake the ink out" kind of pen, but to my surprise, it's just like a marker! But for your eyes! I tend to get oily skin  & this eyeliner lasted the whole day! Just do NOT put it on your waterline, because it doesn't stay. This is by far my favorite eyeliner. ^_^ I tried coming back to get myself a few more. but they already ran out of stock at my local store. :( But also it's not that easy to remove, so the package says "To remove easily use an oil based makeup remover." I use olive oil to remove my makeup everyday anyways, so it isn't a hassle for me. :)




Thanks for reading!<3

Hope this review helped! ^_^

Camera recommendations?

Hi dear blogger friends!
I need help. I need to get a new camera and I want to know what you girls use to take your blog photos? & also what camera you girls recommend? (Brand, amount of mega pixels, etc.) I am looking for an affordable one, so I'm not looking into those expensive professional SLR cameras. I was thinking about the Nikon coolpix S3000 with 12 mp since it is around my price range. What do you girls think?

Nivea lip care: Velvet Rose

Nivea lip care lip balm does a great job in moisturizing my lips. 
 Scent: It has a faint sweet smell.

Nivea lip care in Velvet Rose barely adds any color to your lips. If you do layer it, you can see just a tiny bit of color, but not so noticeable.

Dove Go Fresh Body Mists

I love Dove Go Fresh Body Mists. Here are the two that I've been using. They both smell really good. I can't really explain their scent, but their names can probably give you a sense of what they may smell like. I recommend both of them & I'd definitely repurchase them. I haven't tried the other scents they have which are the pomegranate & lemon verbena (which I'm dying to try) and the cucumber & green tea.

Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strength

This product is an acne medication that contains 10% benzoyl peroxide. I have very sensitive skin. This product really does dry up your zits. For me, I liked it for the first 2 days because it really does work, but after that, it started burning my skin & made my acne worse. I guess for me, since I do have sensitive skin, 10% benzoyl peroxide is too much for my skin to handle. But keep in mind, everyone's skin is different & I have seen positive reviews on this item.

Degree Sexy Intrigue Women Body Mist for Women

Degree's Sexy Intrigue Women Body Mist for Women is one of my all time favorites! It smells like vanilla & jasmine rose. I found it at a local drugstore & as soon as I finished my first bottle, I came back looking for more but unfortunately, they didn't have any in stock! I kept coming back to check but I eventually gave up. Luckily, my boyfriend sent me some because he was at the states. Price: between $4-$5.

If you hate the heavy feeling of lotion on your skin

I have a confession. I use this as a body lotion, not just a hand cream. Why? Because I do not like the feeling of lotion on my body. When I use lotion, it feels heavy on my skin that I just wash it off! Since I don't normally use lotion, my skin became very dry to the point that my family would say something about it. So this product is a life saver. Miracle of Aloe Miracle Hand Repair.
It does not give me that heavy lotion feeling. It blends & absorbs into my skin without me feeling that I used anything on my skin. It does help keep my skin smooth & soft. It has more of a cream texture instead of a slippery lotion feel.

Circle lens & ebay eyeliner gel

Hey girls! Well, today I got my circle lenses in max pure pink & my ebay eyeliner gel in the mail! Yay! The contact lenses look really nice on my dark brown eyes. & it came with a cute animal lens case, card with a written note, and a cute gift box. You girls can get these contact lenses at http://candylens.com/. As for the eyeliner gel, I would say it's pretty good, but for you girls with oily skin, beware! It does smudge. If you girls need tips on how to decrease/prevent eyeliner smudging, you can see tips here: http://msodapop.blogspot.com/2010/09/review-loreal-paris-infallible-16-hour.html
