Essiebutton and seeing that it did actually look very pretty, I decided to check it out. While in California this was my go-to lip color/balm when I didn't want a full on lipstick, and after a few weeks of trying it I think I can give a good honest review.

I've been trying out this Wet n Wild duo I got at the drugstore for $2. Think about it that's a good deal, right? I got the more neutral/naked eyeshadow trio with a mascara. The shadow trio is very nice, pigmented and portable. However, I don't tend to choose it often (nothing against it). In it's defense, I've basically forgone eyeshadows and liners, now I go out with just mascara. For the mascara, well I'm a bit apprehensive. At first I liked the fact that it painted my lashes black, which is what I look for in a mascara. My lashes are long so I tend to stray away from "volumizing" mascaras. But after using this for some weeks I did notice that my eyes were watering a lot during the day, so I've stopped using it. And yes, the eye watering has now stopped. Also, the mascara formula is very watery. My conclusion is, yes to the eyeshadow trio and no to the mascara.
Finally, an outfit related post! It's been ages since I do one. Why haven't I? I've just been feeling more attuned to make-up and reviews, that and no one ever wants to take a picture of my outfits... Sad, really. Anyway! Since I did a collaboration with Desi, I decided to go ahead and do a transition outfit from day to night! If you're like me then you're always on the go and sometimes don't have the time to go an change for a night out. So this post is a bit of help on how simple you can take an outfit from a day casual look to a more night out look. Enjoy!
Going to uni or anywhere sometimes entails being comfortable. I love being comfortable but stylish, which is an easy task. Here I took a simple polka dot peplum blouse, which gives me a more curvy appearance, and paired it with some simple blue jeans. To add another print into the mix, I added some leopard print loafers which gives the outfit a quirky touch. Tying my hair up into a bun gives me a more casual yet put together look, which I paired with my glasses. As for make-up? A simple cat-eye liner and a hot pink lippie did the trick. And add a messenger bag to continue that casual look.

Sweet Pink I was a little apprehensive before buying it. It was the only one and someone had swatched it. In the end I got it and thoroughly cleaned it again and again, and now it's good as new. It's my favorite of the two I got and I'm really happy I did get it. This shade of pink suits any skin tone, dark or fair. Actually, it would look divine on darker skin tones.
As for Bloody Mary, it may look red but trust me there's some pink in it. It's a cross between red and pink and it looks very pigmented when on. I like wearing it and only applying mascara on my eyes, that way I let the lipstick take front and center. This is amazing on fair skins, especially if you have darker hair this baby will pop! I love it. I'm very happy with them both and I may look into getting more since they're only $5.
Hi, guys! I did a collaboration with miss Desi on some turban DIY's she did. I styled three of the four looks we did, and I'm showing two here (the other one is for another post). So, if you wish to learn how to make your own turban, go check out her post. If you wish to see a couple of idea on how to style them, then keep on reading!
We kept the looks clean and simple, letting the turban shine through without looking like a fortune teller. Remember to pass through Desi's blog to check out her DIY and also stay tuned for another look I did about transitioning your outfit from day to night. Hope you all enjoyed!
