Creepy-looking closeup, hehe. 

I couldn't sleep well last night, so I practiced doing gal makeup. I hope it looks okay! (◡‿◡✿)
Please let me know how I did! ヽ(*´∀`)ノ
Need to practice curling/styling my hair, for sure...

Julep Blake

2 coats of Blake

I'm not sure this color goes too well with my skin tone, haha.. but the formula is excellent! 

Color - ♥ ♥   ♡ - I think the color is nice, just not on me.
Formula - ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♡ - The formula is quite thick, but probably needs 2 coats to look even. Or maybe if the first coat is thickly applied. Otherwise, it's nice and feels pretty scratch/chip resistant.
Smoothness - ♥ ♥ ♥   - It's easy to tell where I didn't properly cover up the first coat with the second... 
Price - ♥ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ - At $14 full price, not worth it. But definitely worth my one penny. ;)

Overall - ♥ ♥ ♥  ♡ - I didn't like the polish as much as I thought I would, especially because I loved the grey one. 

Gonna go back and do the same rating for Meryl now!

MyGlam April Glam Bag

My very first MyGlam monthly bag, and the theme is Girl's Night Out.

24/7 Liner in Junkie, DermStore Lip Quench, All-Belle lashes, and 2 MyGlam brushes. 

And my very first YouTube video! It's for the MyGlam April bag and the intro box I talked about last post from Julep. :) Forgive my awkwardness... >A<

Julep replacement package!!!

Cutest packaging ever.

Free Julep emery board that will definitely come in handy.

My Julep polishes!!! In Meryl (grey) and Blake (pastel yellow).

Glycolic hand scrub that will apparently make my hands appear younger haha.

A swatch of Meryl (2 coats). I quite like it!

Color - ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ - I am in love with this color. My new favorite neutral.
Formula - ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♡ - The formula is needs 2+ coats to look even, but after it's fully dried, it's incredibly chip-resistant. Went for about 3-4 days without any chipping, even at the tips.
Smoothness - ♥ ♥ ♥   - Very smooth and shiny, but still not completely opaque throughout in places.
Price - ♥ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ - At $14 full price, not worth it. But definitely worth my one penny. ;)

Overall - ♥ ♥ ♥   - Love this polish so much. 

I emailed Julep about my lost package and they were kind enough to mail me a replacement intro box at no additional charge! I am so appreciative of that. Best customer service! I haven't tried Blake or the scrub yet, but I'll do a proper review/swatch for those when I do. I still cannot believe this was just one penny. Take advantage while you can!

Tokyo Lifestyle store haulll

First buys of April! I'm absolutely obsessed with pa polishes after this. 
(2 pa polishes in AA38 and AA36, 2 Kleancolor glitter stripers, 2 packs of Luxury Eyelashes, and a pair of pa bottom lashes)

Latest pa polish purchase and my current mani. Perfect for spring, and reminds me so much of bubblegum and cotton candy! 
1 coat Sephora by O.P.I. Strengthener, 2 coats pa AA19, 1 coat Essie good to go topcoat
Photo taken with Instagram for Android! Even though it's super buggy on my G2.

While I'm at it, here's another mani I did using pa AA38 over a Butter London color.
Can you see the ugly artifacts of a previous photo at the top left?? Janky, riiiight? Instagram, why do you hate my rom. :( 

I'll be swatching the other pa polishes soon. My favorite has to be AA36, a black jelly with pink sparkles!

Too Faced Vintage Sale Haul ♥

 The long-ago promised Too Faced Vintage Sale haul pictures! I have such a backlog. Almost caught up, though. :) On to the photos!

This is how it came in the mail! Too Faced has such pretty packaging.

The Galaxy Glam baked eyeshadows I got, in Moon Beam, Super Nova, Deep Space, and Magenta Moon. Cutest packaging everrr. Made me want to buy them ALL. $3 each!!

Eye shadow duos in Sexpresso/Peach Fuzz and Beauty Mark. $6 each, I believe.

Sexpresso/Peach Fuzz is the only one I've opened so far. Isn't it pretty? :)

and just for fun, my entire Too Faced makeup collection :)
I love how pretty everything looks together, especially with my leopard print scarf!

Until next time!

No Julep for me...

I discovered yesterday that, although my Julep Maven penny box was delivered to my apartment building on Saturday morning, my apartment has lost the package containing my long-awaited nail polishes... I am so incredibly disappointed. :( I had really been looking forward to the polishes, especially since the pastel yellow color in the Boho Glam box would have been perfect for spring/Easter. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the package will somehow turn up within the week and I'll still be able to receive my penny box... I'm so sad!!!

I'm glad others were able to take advantage of the penny deal, though, at least. Please do let me know what you think of your boxes when they arrive to you! Leave a comment or something, if you will.


Oh, and Hautelook is having another Urban Decay sale. You can get the fake lashes set that I got in my February hauls post for $7 (+$5.95 shipping, I believe), rather than the $10 that I got mine for. :) Just thought I'd share.

Julep Maven for just ONE PENNY!

I have some exciting news! Julep Maven has an offer for first-time buyers to get their first (monthly) box for only $0.01! You are in no way obligated to buy any more boxes, since you can choose to only buy 1 box, 3 boxes, 6, or 12. Julep Maven is one of those monthly beauty subscriptions, but only if you want it to be, which for this deal, is really awesome!! I decided to try it out since, well....I've only got a penny to lose, haha. The code is COLOR2012. I'm really excited to get my Boho Glam box! It comes with 2 nail polishes (a grey and a pastel yellow) and I believe an exfoliating cream? For a this is a steal!

Here's the link again, if you want to check it out! Julep Maven at

Wow, this almost sounds like an advertisement...but believe me, it isn't! I'm posting this because I want to share this awesome deal with everyone. :)


I heard that, even if you choose to only get 1 box, you will be signed up for the monthly subscription. Make sure you cancel by April 24th if you don't want to be charged $19.99 for next month's box. Otherwise, this penny offer is totally valid~
