Wet and Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Review~!

 Hey Guys~!

Today I have a review for a product I've wanted for months, but only got is just recently. It is the new Wet and Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain. I've really enjoyed the different drugstore lip crayons and it was only a matter of time before Wet and Wild came out with there own. So now I'll be reviewing it for you guys. I hope you enjoy this and let's start~~!

The packaging is very similar to other twist up lip crayons, so I'm not really sure what else to say about it . . .

There are six shades and the line includes a great line of colors to choose from. The one I have is called Lady and the Vamp, and yes I bought it cause I loved the name. It's a reddish berry color, which I think looks really nice on me.

The formula is very smooth and is moisturizing. Also the color is well pigmented. The only problem I had was in the staying power. The color lasted nicely for a few hours, but after that the color faded and settled around my lips, creating a line around my mouth.

Wet and Wild isn't an expensive drugstore brand. I paid $2.99 for this and compared to other drugstore balm stains, that's a huge save.

Packaging: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Formula: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Color: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Pigmentation: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Price: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Overall: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

The only problem I had with this was the lasting power. Yes, I could've reapplied it throughout the day, but if something has the word 'stain' in the name I expect it to last a decent amount of time. Besides that I think it's a great product and I'll definitely be trying other shades.

I hope you guys enjoyed this review. Leave me a comment for which product you want a review for next, either the NYX Full Coverage Concealer or the Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara. Thank you for reading and I'll see you at my next post.

Anime Boston 2014 {Dangan Ronpa Meetup+Haul}~!

Hey Guys~!

So this past weekend was Anime Boston~! That's why I've kind of been busy the past few weeks, but now I'll be telling you guys all about it. I went on Friday and Saturday. I wanted to go on Sunday, but I got really sick. So let's start~~!

On Friday my friend Tiffany and I went after school to the convention center. I wasn't really in cosplay, I just wore a cosplay wig with the outfit I was wearing earlier that day.

We went to an event called Anime Unscripted, which was an improve performance done by some of the voice actors attending the convention. There I got to meet one of my favorite voice actors, Christina Vee. She's voiced one of my favorite anime characters, Kanaria from Rozen Maiden. The event also had Patrick Seitz, Matthew Mercer and John Stocker.

For the rest of Friday, Tiffany and I just met up with some friends and hung out around the convention center. We found two Mondo and Ishimaru cosplayers and they took this really nice picture for us. On our way home, we got lost trying to find the train station entrance, but we eventually found it.

Now onto Saturday~~!

I woke up really early to get ready because that was the day I did one of my dream cosplays, Touko Fukawa from Dangan Ronpa. I've talked about it before in a favorites post and it is one of my favorite anime/video games. So of course I went as my favorite character, Fukawa.

And yes, I made the cosplay myself, by hand. So Tiffany and I met up with some of our other friends. Together we went to the Dangan Ronpa Meetup / Photoshoot. It was so much fun getting to meet the people I'd been talking to online for months. Everyone was really nice and whenever we ran into each other around the convention we'd always chit chat.

Also my friend Tiffany and I did a brief photoshoot inside of Barnes and Nobles. It came out really nice and if you want to see those pictures, they'll probably be on my Deviantart. {Click here to check them out.}

During both Friday and Saturday I did a bit of shopping inside the dealers room. So I thought I'd show you guys all the really cute/cool things I bought.

First I got this Shappo plushie from Sentimental Circus. It's super cute and I just love anything Sentimental Circus. It is really detailed and soft too.

I wanted to get something practical that I'd use daily, so I got this pencil. I don't know why, but I love strawberry anything and this pencil is covered in them.

I have a tradition of getting a key chain at every convention I go to. So I got a Kanaria from Rozen Maiden key chain. It's really cute and now I have three out of the six Rozen Maidens.

So that was all I got at Anime Boston~~!

I hope you guys enjoyed this convention recap/haul post. If you did, please leave me a comment. Thanks for reading and I'll see you at my next post.

My Favorite Spring Nail Polishes~!

Hey Guys~!

Spring is hopefully approaching soon, so I thought I'd share my favorite spring nail polishes with you guys. I love wearing pastel colors, so keep in mind a lot of these polishes will be pastel colors. So let's start~~!


 Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen: It's a pretty pastel green polish with no shimmer or glitter. It has a nice shiny finish. I'm not too fond on green nail polish on me, but this looks really sweet and cute. It lasts a really long time without chipping too.

Magarita Senorita by Confetti: It is a sunshine yellow, but not neon bright, which I like. This is one of the few yellow nail polishes I've tried that actually has some pigmentation. Usually yellow polishes leave a sickly yellow cast, but this one is quite nice looking.

Lacey Lilac by Sally Hansen: I said I like pastel nail polishes, okay? This one is a pastel lilac color with no shimmer or glitter. It's really opaque and lasts really well too. It looks really dainty when worn with anything and it brings a nice pop of color.

Glass Pink by Sinful Colors: It's a pale pink with flecks of many different colors, mostly gold and silver. The best was to describe the finish is opalescent. It is sheer, so either apply this over an opaque pale pink polish, or just put on multiple coats of this till it's to your liking.

Coral Reef by Sally Hansen: It's a bright coral pink. I hate bright polishes, but this one is such a wearable spring color. It looks really nice with just about anything and is also a great summer time nail polish too.

So those were some of my favorite spring time nail polishes. Leave me a comment telling me your favorite nail polish for spring. Thanks for reading and I'll see you at my next post.

Everyday Eye Makeup Tutorial~!

Hey Guys~!

Recently I've been wearing the same eye look everyday. I really like it and have gotten many compliments on it, so I thought I'd should you guys how to re-create it.

It's very simple and looks really sweet and innocent. I hope you guys enjoy this and let's start~~!

First I prime my eyes with the Elf Eyeshadow Primer. This will help the eyeshadows last longer and look more vibrant.

For the actual eyeshadow I'll be using colors from the Naked and Naked3 Palettes from Urban Decay. I did a review on the Naked3 so {click here} if you want to check that out.

I mixed two colors from the Naked3, Burnout and Dust, and applied them all over my lid. Burnout is a warm toned pink with a slight shimmery finish and Dust is a pearl finish baby pink. Dust does have a lot of fall out, so if you're also using it, brush away any fallout.

Next I use the color Naked from my Naked palette, which is a matte light brown color. I blend that lightly into the crease and outer v to help define the eyes.

Back to the Naked3, to further define the eyes I use the color Buzz. It's a shimmery rose pink and I blend that into the crease too.

With the color Strange from the Naked3, a matte cream, highlight the brown bone. To highlight the inner corner, I use the color Virgin, a shimmery pale pink.

Now that the eyeshadow is done, I'll be using a nude eyeliner to line my water line. I used the NYX Wonder Pencil in the shade Fair. By using a nude liner, the eyes appear brighter and larger.

Last step is to curl your lashes and apply mascara. I've been using the Covergirl Clump Crusher and I apply it on my upper and lower lashes.

And now we're finished~!

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial for my everyday eye makeup. If you like it, leave me a comment. Thank you for reading and I'll see you at my next post.

D.I.Y. Pandora Necklace~!

Hey Guys~!

One of my family friend's just had her Bat Mizvah and I made her a pandora necklace. So I thought I'd show you guys how I made it.

It's really easy to make and looks super cute. Everything used in this D.I.Y. I bought in Joann's and in Michaels.

You'll need . . .

A Necklace Chain

Pandora Glass Beads

Charms / Other Beads

Round Nose Pliers

Flat Nose Pliers

So let's start~!

First open up and jump rings or wires connecting your beads and charms to their packaging. The crystal hearts I used were attached to a chain, so I used my pliers to open the jump rings and pull them off the chain.

Next plan out the placement of your beads and charms. I went for a very simple design, switching between beads and charms. Create whatever design you like.

Then string all the beads onto the chain in the same pattern you planned.

Close up the clasp and you're finished~!

I hope you guys enjoyed this jewelry D.I.Y. Leave me a comment saying what kind of D.I.Y. you want to see next. Thank you guys and I'll see you at my next post.

Dolly Eye Makeup~!

Hey Guys~!

Today I'll be showing you how I do my doll inspired eye makeup. This look may not be for everyone, but I really like effect it gives my eyes. So let's start~~!

I already applied my base makeup, so let's go straight to the eyes. First I applied my eye primer from ELF. This will make the colors last longer and look more vivid.

Next I applied a pale pink eyeshadow all over my lid up to the brow bone using my finger. This one is from Sephora and sadly the color was discontinued.

For the rest of the eye shadow I'm using this palette by The Color Workshop. Taking a reddish brown eyeshadow and a fluffy blending brush, define the outer corner and blend it with the pink to create a gradient between the two. Also blend it into the crease to create the illusion of deep set eyes.

Then taking the same reddish brown on a small angled brush, line the outer lower lash line. This creates a more defined eye. With the same angled brush and a white eyeshadow, highlight the inner corner and line the inner lower lash line. Blend where the two colors meet to create a subtle transition.

To create the illusion of bright dolly eyes, apply white or nude eyeliner to your water line. I used a nude one from Rimmel cause it looks more natural than a white eyeliner.

Now onto mascara. First curl your lashes to open up the eyes even more. Then apply a lengthening mascara to your upper and lower lashes. Apply multiple coats to your upper lashes only, this will create the look of thicker lashes.  If they clump together brush through them using a brow comb.

And now we're finished~~!

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial. Comment if you liked it and I'll see you at my next post.

February Favorites 2014~!

Hey Guys~!

It's that time of the month where I share my favorites from last month~~! Here are my February favorites and as usual they aren't just beauty products. I hope you guys enjoy and let's start~~!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆ Makeup ☆*゚ ゜゚*☆

Covergirl + Olay Eye Rehab Concealer {Fair/Light}: I've been using this a ton this month. It's a salmon toned concealer, even though the shade is fair/light, and it does a great job of covering my blue toned dark circles. 

Maybelline Fit Me Blush {Medium Mauve}: Originally I got this blush for stage makeup, but I've now been including it in my daily makeup routine. It's a dusty rose/mauve color and it looks really pretty. I like wearing it when I have very simple makeup, since this blush compliments it well.

Maybelline Color Tattoo {Barely Branded}: I recently started using this again. It's a champagne colored cream eyeshadow and it has great staying power. I wear it when I don't have time to do a full eyeshadow look, but I still want to wear something. 

Clinique Color Surge Eyeshadow Quad {French Vanilla, Double Date, Midnight}: I've never talked about this palette, but I should have cause I really like it. It's all neutral eyeshadows, two matte and two shimmery shades. It came in a Clinique gift bag I got a long time ago. 

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer {Big Bang}: After wearing this for a play I was in, I became really fond of red lips. I've been wearing it a lot this month, and I really want to try more colors of the Show Off Lip Lacquers. 

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆ Nail Polish ☆*゚ ゜゚*☆

Sinful Colors {Glass Pink}: I love this nail polish. It is pale pink with flecks of gold and silver. The best was to describe it is very opalescent. The polish is sheer, so you need to build it up a lot to make it opaque.

Sally Hansen {Lacey Lilac}: With spring approaching, I decided to break out a pastel polish. This one is a lilac color and it's really pretty. The formula is great, so the polish lasts a really long time. 

Essie {Snap Happy}: I really like Essie polishes and this is one of my favorites. It's a neutral toned red nail polish. I wore my matte top coat over it and it lasts for a week and a half without chipping. 
☆*゚ ゜゚*☆ Skin Care ☆*゚ ゜゚*☆

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes: These are some of my new favorite makeup remover wipes. They remove all my makeup, and they don't irritate my skin. Which is great cause I've been breaking out like crazy lately.

Clean and Clear Morning Burst Facial Wash: I like a lot of Clean and Clear products, and this face wash is no exception. It smells really nice and lathers too. I use it twice a day, in the morning and at night, just to clean my face up. 

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆ Video Games/Apps ☆*゚ ゜゚*☆

Scramble with Friends: Oh my god, I love this app. My friends got me addicted to it, and I played it a ton while on vacation. It's similar to scrabble, so if you like word games, check it out. Also if you leave your username in a comment, I'll challenge you.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆ Anime ☆*゚ ゜゚*☆
Nisekoi: This is a new anime that is currently airing episodes. It is about this boy named Raku Ichijo who as a kid made a promise to a girl that he'd marry her. Now in high school, he's trying to find that girl. This anime has a love triangle, as expected and I already know who I want him to end up with. I'll just say that I love tsundere anime characters. What that means is a character that seems cold or harsh but warms up to people he or she cared about. This anime has a great example of that and her name is Chitoge Kirisaki.  I really like her character, and I hope the rest of this anime is as great as it's been so far.

Alright, those were my favorites for the month of February. Leave me a comment telling me some of your favorites from this past month. Thanks for reading this and I'll see you at my next post.
