Review on Etsy Shop: Cry Baby Sailor Moon & Hang in there Luna Pins

 I made my first ever Etsy purchase because after seeing these Sailor Moon inspired pins, I had to get them. I purchased them from Elorasaurus. First off, the Cry Baby pin was $8 and the Hang in there pin was $9. Shipping to the U.S. was $4.50 so the total of my order was $21.50. These are typical prices as pins usually go for about $10 (give or take). Elorasaurus' shipping policy said that items ship 1-2 business days although mine wasn't shipped yet and it was about a week so I went ahead an contacted the seller. She got back to me explaining that she's been busy as she's moving into a new house. So it was understandable. I wasn't in any rush, I just wanted to make sure I was getting what I paid for.  As a seller myself, it's important to give customers a heads up on what's going on or on any delays so they're not stuck waiting and wondering. 
 Both pins look so much more beautiful in person and smaller than I expected, but I'm pretty happy about that. Their car backs also look amazing and I don't plan on throwing them away.
As a big fan of Sailor Moon, I am very happy with my purchase as they have great quality.
The seller was really nice to send me a freebie of her cute design stickers as well as a discount code for my next purchase and not to mention, the wonderful star confetti. 
 Love, Chris

Top 5 in July 2016

1. Reading a book of short stories is a wonderful time-passing hobby as I don't have the patience in reading a whole book in one go. I get sucked into the stories and before I realize it, I've read a whole story.
2. Milk candy is my current addiction as they taste amazingly milky and sweet.
 3. Lush's bubblegum lip scrub not only exfoliates my lips but also adds moisture to it. This is a must-do before any matte lipstick application.
 4. The beauty blender: I finally splurged on this little sponge and I'm glad I did as it does wonders blending in my foundation and concealer without giving me a streaky finish like some face brushes tend to do.
5. The Maybelline Better Skin Powder gives such great coverage and a flawless finish as it covers up my pores and smoothes out my skin. I highly recommend giving this a shot.
 Love, Chris

MAC Chicory and Brick-O-La

Hi everyone, today I will be sharing my review and swatches of MAC's lip pencil in Chicory and amplified creme lipstick in Brick-O-La.
Chicory is a a brownish brick shade
Chicory lip liner. This is the technique of how the MAC makeup artist applied the lip liner.

Brick-O-La as described by MAC is a mid toned berry, amplified creme finish.

MAC's Chicory lip liner and Brick-O-La lipstick make a great pair. Both not only apply nice and smoothly but also have a good amount of wear time. They are definitely comfortable on the lips, especially with the creme finish of the lipstick. With their high pigmentation, I feel like they can last me a while before finishing each of them. 

Have you tried these MAC lip products? How do you like them?
