leave in the dark, come home in the dark

H&M sweater, Urban Outfitters shirt & jeggings, Acne Atacoma knockoffs/fakes from Lovelyshoes.net!

Finally got my Acne Atacoma knockoffs/copies/fakes from Lovelyshoes.net!

Ordered them last week on Sunday, they shipped on Wednesday, and I received them yesterday! I picked EMS shipping this time because it was cheaper. The total was $40.16, so not bad! : ] The only thing is that these shoes are obviously cheap. I immediately wore them out yesterday and already they're falling apart:

Target top, Urban Outfitters jeggings, Forever 21 bag, DSW shoes

purchased these Jeffrey Campbell Copen Platform copies from DSW today. the store near me is closing so they're having 30% off additional clearance. these shoes were $99.94 on clearance with an extra 70% off, so in total i got it for $20.99! they were originally $130. wore them immediately to the mall and now my feet are filled with blisters...it hurts to walk!

*EDIT: looks like this brand, Crown Vintage, copies other shoes! thank goodness for knockoffs!

smooth nude

purchased Revlon's Colorstay Lipcolor in Smooth Nude (350) on ebay because my dumbass thought they discontinued it, but i recently saw it at walmart (-__- fail.) either way, i still love it! it's so easy to apply compared to my other nude lipsticks! this applies evenly and is sooooo smooth! almost like butter : ]

this one is a bit messed up as you can see, but it still works fine.

here are swatches comparing it to the other nude lipsticks i have:

H&M cropped top, Forever 21 top, Urban Outfitters jeans, thrifted boots

exchanged Christmas presents with the boypren already because we're weird and don't care about Christmas day (well mine is going to be crappy anyway). got him Stay Puft caffeinated marshmallows and a Melodyhorn.

the packaging from ThinkGeek is so cute! the air cushions say they're monkey breath lol

i love the smell of the wrapping paper that looks like paper (-__- just what i was looking for) from Daiso. it smells like the Sanrio paper bags that they used to use before.

my gift: tunic, leopard handbag, and suedette platform pumps all from Forever 21

the boypren mocked my blogging saying that he was going to blog his gift. -__- yeah i went home and blogged this.

H&M cropped top, Forever 21 skirt, Zipia satchel, random tights, thrifted boots


another trip to Daiso to get random shit i don't need, including nom i will hoard in my room and pig out on. the more notable things though:

-kawaii tissues for when i get sick
-cute false eyelashes i can't wait to try out
-heel cushions for the boots above which fit! hooray!
-eyelash curler replacement pads which fit in my ELF eyelash curler. yes!

First picture: Daiso on top, ELF on bottom
Second picture: ELF on Left, Daiso on Right
The Daiso ones fit even though they are wider and shorter. Plus they curl well too!

H&M cropped sweater, Urban Outfitters high waisted jeans, McDonalds Badtz-Maru watch

went shopping on the last day of classes. it was meant to be for finishing my book essay right before it was due that day!


Mitsuwa is the best! yummy foods and kawaii things. got my favorite, Gokuri pineapple, tried yummy coconut crackers, bought a rice bowl to use with my mineral makeup, and tried a new liquid eyeliner.

Pa Liquid Eyeliner

it was the cheapest one there ($8.99) and works great! the ink comes out easily, so winged eyeliner can be filled in with just the tip! i don't know how it is with smudging since i just put it on 10 minutes ago.

Received the toggle coat I ordered from Target yesterday and it's satisfactory. I don't think my search for the perfect toggle coat is over though! : ]

Also received my Eyes Lips Face haul today!

Travel mirror ($1) just to have in my bag and got another eyelash curler ($1) for when the pad on mine is kaput! I can't find any replacement pads that fit in the eyelash curler, so I just bought another one.

Bought their Studio Kabuki Face Brush ($5) to use for my Everyday Minerals makeup. I didn't expect the brush to be that big. It's so soft as well and I just love rubbing it on my face! : ] Here it is compared to the Ecotools kabuki:

Ordered another spoolie ($1) (the one I bought a long time ago broke -__-), their Studio Powder Brush ($3) (so soft!), and another Studio Small Angled Brush ($3) so I can have one for filling in my brows and one for cream eyeliner.

Got eyelashes in Dramatic and Natural ($1). I bought them before and failed at putting them on, so I need more practice! Also got their Cream Eyeliner ($3).

I forgot it came with a mini angled brush! It's just like the Small Angled Brush, just less dense. It's sort of difficult to use because of the mini handle. I was hoping this cream eyeliner would not smudge on my lid, but the oil is eating away at it as we speak. Still, I'm loving this cream eyeliner because it's creamy and easy to apply. The wet n wild cream eyeliner is not as creamy in comparison.

Studio Blush in Peachy Keen (Left) and Gotta Glow (Right) ($3). Been wanting Peachy Keen for awhile even going to Target many times in vain. It's sort of meh to me. I think it's the gold shimmer/sheen. Gotta Glow is nice though! It pretty much has the same gold sheen as Peachy Keen. As a highlight, it's definitely more noticeable.
sorry for the sucky swatches!

and I finally got the Sanrio watch I've been wanting--Badtz Maru! I feel like buying them all though T_T

turned off

as usual, procrastinating. not doing homework and blogging just to use an excuse.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Born With It and wet n wild palette in Vanity

went to Walgreens because they're having a 40% off Maybelline sale this week. i've been wanting Born With It, but now it's just meh. sucks that Walgreens doesn't have a beauty return policy like CVS and Riteaid do.

the color is nice, but it is oh so frosty/shimmery/metallic looking. i swatched it on my hand and when i wiped it away, i was left with glitter. my sister said it looked like the makeup we used as kids -__-

i'm loving this purchase even though! i wasn't as excited when i bought it (it was on clearance for $2.59 so i thought oh well). the colors are great: 3 matte and 3 shimmer.

and lastly, waiting for this:
elf 100 palette

my friend Jimilyn gave me a code to use on Target.com that took off $0.50 and gave free shipping. the palette was on clearance for $5 so in total i spent $4.92. great deal! let's just hope they don't screw us over or something like that!

he has all the memories

the boypren finally developed his pictures! one more souvenir from TIMF.

received my Everyday Minerals order today! i ordered the Try Me Free kit in Olive and i ordered a sample of Lucent Powder in Natural. i received extra bases in Sunkissed Fair and Bronzed Tan.
most of the colors in the kit were too light for me. Olive Medium is the closest. at first i thought it was too yellow, but now my face looks a bit light, but it's night time so i won't know how it really is until the daytime. hopefully it won't break me out like bareminerals did with it's bismuth oxychloride!

really loving the lucent powder and bronzed tan base! i've discovered the wonders of highlighting! the CVS Blush/Powder duo brush fits perfectly into the lid and applies right on the cheekbones! this bronzed color is perfect as well, but a little goes a long way!

target toggle
finally found a toggle coat to satisfy my want for one! this one is from target. i bought it online on sale for $29.99. it's regularly $49.99 and i found it in the store, but i didn't want to pay full price -__- *cheapass. hopefully it mails soon! i received an email saying it might be delayed and i saw that it was sold out online, but i called the customer service (which was really awkward bc i couldn't hear the person and it was a guy, so i kept on repeating myself) and he said the same thing as the shipping status. so.....we'll see.
