Beauty on a Budget Review: LA Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils

I recently saw a post from a fellow blogger +Dana Tanksley over at LuvSickBeauty on L.A. Colors jumbo pencils and I decided to finally check them out as a part of my Beauty on a Budget series. I'm a huge fan of the NYX Jumbo Eye pencils so I just had to try out these babies. I went to a few of my local family dollars and I found only 4 different shades. *sigh*

I hauled these in my last haul (link below). I went on a mini rant about how much I loathe LA Colors but was going to give a few of their items a chance so the LA Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils are up first.

Beauty on a Budget: Drugstore/Dollar Store Haul!

The past week I've been going to drugstores and dollar stores just to pick up odds and ends. I didn't actually go for anything makeup related but we all know how that turns out. I ended up picking up stuff that caught my eye. I figured hey this'll make a good post for my new beauty on a budget series! I'll be doing separate reviews with swatches on most of these products as I've tried all of them already.
In my last beauty on a budget post I stated how much I loathed L.A. Colors makeup but was going to give a few products from the brand a shot so I picked up a few items along with my usuals, Wet N Wild & NYC. I also bought my first Jordana product.

A wish for sunny days. LIFE UPDATE!

Hello beauties!  I just thought I'd give you guys an update about my life lately because I realized I rarely actually talk about my personal life unless you've read my 'about me' section or I'm doing a tag.

Awhile ago, I found out I'm no longer deploying which means I can continue on with all of my plans sooner that I thought. The plan before this recent news was to start esthetician school when I returned and use the money to support myself while in school. I also wanted to start making youtube beauty videos but everything was going to start happening for me in 2015.

Since the news, of course my plan has changed. I plan to work during the summer to pay for this amazing camera I want to buy and start esthetician school in the fall. My passion really is makeup artistry and I want to get better, learn all sorts of techniques and be that amazing makeup artist before I actually call myself an MUA. My long term goal is to open a day spa with makeup services, massages and facial treatments.

That's pretty much my latest run down. Oh, currently I'm using my amazing iPhone to take my photos *insert sarcastic smirk*. With that being said I only take my photos outdoors otherwise they'd suck. I ordered small lights from amazon but those were an EPIC fail. So cloudy=no photos. I have about 9 posts, literally!, that are written and waiting for pictures so they can be posted. Whenever the suns decides to come back out in sunny Louisiana, more interesting posts will be up!

MAC Eyeshadow: Woodwinked Review, Photo & Swatches

mac woodwinked eyeshadow

MAC's Eyeshadow Woodwinked is just one of those staple neutral eyeshadows you need in your collection. It's described as a warm antique gold with a veluxe pearl finish.

In the packaging, it looks sort of bland..nothing special. Once I applied it, I fell inlove. It's the perfect color for an everyday look. No fallout and excellent pigmentation with literally, a hint of shimmer. When I patted it on the lid- I got a beautiful gold but once I started blending it into my crease I got a warm brown! It really looks like you have two separate colors.

Blush Wishlist ft NARS, MAC & Benefit!

I'm just now starting to get into blushes so I'm really in a testing phase because I rarely include blush in my full face makeup routine. I've loved them on other women just not for myself. I decided to make a wishlist full of a few shades I've been eyeing. If you've tried any of them please let me know what you think of them!
