Drugstore Versus High-end Makeup ♡

Lord knows I am a high-end cosmetic junkie at times ; for example I will buy a $20 dollar mascara to make my eyes really stand out and lashes as high the sky. Hell I will even shell out $30 dollars for a nice coverage foundation. However along the years of my experience and experimentation with makeup I've discovered you don't need a $30 foundation when you can get it for $10 because the $10 dollar foundation works just as well. I really want to make a post dedicated to showing that not all drugstore makeup is scary and cheap like people have made it out to be and showing you the 3 main products that I recommend that are drugstore brands for everyday looks ! 

  • First of foundation ; the base that will give you a flawless working canvas for the rest of your makeup.

I have very oily skin so I when I was using foundation I needed something that was going to keep my face matte but with a little dewy look and Revlon 24hour  Colorstay foundation was perfect. It seriously does last long , even after a rowdy night..trust me. You get this beautiful coverage just as you would from MAC's studio fix foundation , it is very build-able without getting cakey ,and does not break out your skin.

  • Secondly we have mascara ; Now I am a huge sell out and admit I will spend more than 20 bucks for an amazing mascara but recently I have found a cheap yet effective alternative.
I am a self-proclaimed mascara junkie and have tried at least 3 or 4 dozen kinds before. I just keep coming back to this one. I love the mascara called Illegal Length Fiber Extensions by Maybelline. To start off I have I have thin average eyelashes and basically any mascara will make them long and thick. However , me being me , I want more and I love dramatic long and thick eyelashes. This mascara helps me achieve that look and I often get compliments and people asking me if am wearing false eyelashes or layers of mascara. So instead of resorting to MAC , Urban Decay etc.. give this mascara a try.

  • Last but not least an eyebrow pencil ;   A nice eyebrow pencil that can fill in my brows is the Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil. 

It perfectly define's my brows and stays matte through out the day. I bought this eyebrow pencil because I forgot my makeup bag and I needed to buy  a cheap essential to get me through the weekend. This eyebrow pencil is the perfect shade and it looks natural and is easy to apply. it beats spending $30 dollars on MAC's eyeshadow to fill my brows in.

♡ iPhone Cases ♡ (Mini-Post)

Ever since I got my iphone months ago I have been so obsessed with the cute cases you can pair with them. The current iPhone case I am using is my whit Koko Cat case and not only is its cute it's durable ! Most of the cases I buy i make sure they're stylish and durable because I drop my phone a lot  ! A lot of you ask are the cases I buy expensive or do they break easily and the answer is no ! I was skeptical when buying my black iphone case because it's a hard case and so thin but looks are deceiving. That case has taken so many blows yet my phone has not cracked or had any malfunctions. you can all purchase cases similar to mine or even the exact ones from here.

Have fun ♡

5 Makeup Products I Can't Live Without

Hello again ! Today I want to talk about the 5 makeup products I can't live without and why I love them to bits ! So I will start from greatest to least most needed products , even though they are all pretty much needed. but anyways let's get started :

  L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes

I love this mascara. It stays on without flaking, running, or raccoon-eyes. I don't have to struggle with removing it thus avoiding losing eyelashes. It satisfies my need for longer lashes without having to apply multiple coats. Though it's price is at the higher end of drug store brands, it is half the price of high end mascara's!

 MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon

MAC Carbon is just a good staple matte black eyeshadow. It is smooth and soft, easy to work with and is easy to build with. I find this eyeshadow very wearable, even during the day. I use it to fill in my brows everyday and have yet to hit the pan of it. This shadow does not only has a long life span but is very durable during the day. I can recall when I went to warped tour and I was drenched in sweat yet my brows were still somewhat intact afterwards. Like I said It's build-able and can be worn quite sheer, turning it into more of a very dark grey than black. I find this eyeshadow very useful and easy to work with while using my angled brush.

Revlon ColorStay Blemish Concealer

I find this concealer to be my go to concealer and easy to apply. I find it easy to blend using my ring finger and I have never had breakouts from this and will continue to use it.

 MAC False Lashes

I was extremely skeptical when I bought this product... I have never, ever liked any MAC mascara products before but the sales person really sold me on it. I'm really happy I did buy it because it has been the best mascara I've ever used other the double extend mascara. Contrary to my last tangent about not having to buy high-end mascaras this is worth it ! This mascara separates, adds volume, lengthens and curls (so much so I don't have to even use a curler anymore). Price is completely reasonable and you get a lot out of it. The one downside to this mascara is that I find the color tends to soften a bit at the end of the day. I'm a person who likes intensely black lashes, and this kind of bums me out, but I can settle since the overall product is amazing.

Maybelline Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

I don't have bad acne , just a few scars left over from years ago due to acne but this bb cream actually provides nice coverage , even though sheer , and leaves my skin feeling so nice and actually matches my skin shade. This works great on my combination skin that tends to be dry on my cheeks and slightly oily in the zone as the day goes on. It gives just a very sheer coverage but I believe it does what it claims and blurs my imperfections rather that covering them. I like it for my lazy days off instead of a heavy foundation. I have also found that it works well under my foundation as a primer.

♡ What's in my bag ♡

I only carry what I need in my bag, I don't like carry things I don't find vital or use on a daily basis. I like to try to keep it as light as possible because heavy bags hurt my shoulders.

Tokyo Hardcore Review

                                                                     Tokyo Hardcore

     So I am a huge advocate for Tokyohardcore and her amazing clothing store. I  buy from her store whenever I get the chance because the quality is just amazing and it's so darn cute die. To begin lets talk about the quality first in for most. typically the tank tops I wear are for my active life and rip/tear but not with these clothes.

 I wore my too cute to prostitute tank top for Warped Tour ,  mind you I sweat and got pretty crazy in the mosh pits that i joined ,  for 6-8 hours. by the end of the day there were no tears and even the printing was still amazing afterwards. I washed it and nothing came undone and still looks brand new. Moving on the adorable clothes they have are just to die for ,  I remember for summer I ordered a ton of tanks but there was a problem with shipping so what the owner did throw in a free shirt which happened to be my too cute to prostitute shirt for how long i had to waited and she even threw in sticker's , button's and cute packaging. She is so sweet and considerate of her buyers and will make sure you get your delivery in a timely manner.

So recently I just ordered my latest piece from her which is the stay cute crop top that I can't wait to flaunt around.

It's cozy yet functional and you can even layer it up for those colder days. So to end my rant Tokyohardcore sells some cute clothes that are durable , affordable and super cute. If you want to go to her amazing store just go to the link listed below. Stay cute and don't forget to follow me for more post.

Fall Ideas and Hellish Heat

Fall Ideas


So fall is coming up but in Florida it never gets that cold to completely layer as I want it to. So I created these looks geared towards us Floridians that have to do with the hellish heat here. These are looks that you can wear that won't burn you up while in Florida because I believe between the hours of 6:00 AM and 12:00 PM temperatures begin to rise from 50 degrees too 70. So you end up taking some clothes off. But with these outfits I feel you won't have to . Now you can click on the photo's below for my polyvore to see the exact items I used but I'm pretty sure you don't have to buy these exact things. You can buy replicas like these at stores like Thrift Store's , Pacsun , Forever 21 or even American Apparel

Lip care


   A lot of you want to know how I keep my lips hydrated , plump looking and line free. I want start off by saying with this routine has kept my lips looking the way they're for years now and it's so easy. Plus I am pretty sure no one wants chapped lips.
 So to begin you want to drink a lot of water to hydrate yourself not only for your skin but it is also good for your lips. You want to drink 3-4 glassess of water a day. Then we can move on by exfoliating all the dead skin off your lips by using a tooth brush and useing it to brush your lips in a circular motion for about 1-2 minutes every other week. This will not only rid your lips of  dead skin but allow blood to flow through your lips making them look plump. You later want to use a lukewarm wet rag to remove any excess that you might have missed.
I then later use my favorite lipbalm which is baby lips by maybelline ! I believe they're only $3.99 at your local drugstore and I know that's a bit pricey but it' so worth it in the end. I started using this two weeks ago and I can feel/see the diffrence it has made.

Baby Lips has SPF 20 and Gives 8 hours of moisture and lip renewal.

Later through the day I obviously eat so the lip balm wipes away with each bite so I like to use EOS lipbalm in Mint and Honeyuckle depending on how I am feeling to keep my lips hydrated.

 Also depending on where I am going say for example a dinner or just a night out on the town I I still use baby lips as a top coat then my Tony Moly Lip Gloss. It still hydrates my lips and adds a hint of color to my lips , the only downside is you have to re-apply every 30 minutes or so to make the color pop again. I primarily use Cherry , Grape , and Strawberry because they have the sweetest scents and nice color finish. You can get them anywhere just google them and they're roughly $6-8 depending on where you go to get them. Also they come in more varities than the ones I just stated !

Top 3 Favorite Outfits

So I frequently get asked what are my favorite outfits to wear around this world and they all will pretain to summer wear because it is still beyond hot in Florida. So today I will post three frequently worn outfits for Day , Night and just an outfit I can wear for both occasions in my (opinion). 

So during the day it's always so hot even at 8 'o clock in the morning it's almost 85 degrees. So I typically like to wear shorts with a nice funky shirt , something that draws a lot of attention because everything is so minimum layered due to the heat. But keep in mind during the day I am contsantly moving around from home to school to hanging out with friends. So I like to keep a cardigan on or light weighted sweater on.

  • Diy Knotted Grey Shirt from Leslie's Closet
  • Off-white Cardigan from Thrift Store
  • Braided Brown belt from Thrift Store
  • Khaki High-waisted shorts from Leslie's Closet
  • Loafers from Brandon's Closet


At night I love to wear dark colors and go all out on layering because the sun is down , it's cooled down a bit , and it's time to play.

  • Manhattan Cart Shirt from American Apparel
  • Bowler Hat from Yesstyle
  • Denim Jacket from American Apparel
  • Black Jeans from Thrift Store
  • Doc Martens from Official website
  • Black belt with gold accent from Thrift Store

 An outfit for both occasions

So I love verstiale outfits that I can wear for day and night ! This outfit is constantly worn disregarding all the elemnts like weather , time and place because I feel it works for both.

  • Striped Cropped Top from American Apparel
  • Navy Blue Jeans from the Thrift Store
  • Bowler Hat from Yesstyle
  • Oxfords from Thrift Store
  • Black leather belt with gold accent from Thrift Store

So those are most frequently worn outfits and I typically shop at American Apparel , Thrift Store , Forever 21 and eBayif you were wondering.
Have a nice day and thank you for reading.
