How To Get Perfect Lips

Are you suffering from cracked or peeling dry winter lips? I have the perfect solution! I found this recipe online, and it's worked great for me. Im sure it'll work for you too!

Sweet Honey Lip Scrub

1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sugar (white or brown)
1/2 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil

Mix all of these together in a small container. Scoop a small amount onto your finger. Rub it all over your lips (it gets kind of messy) for about one minute. Then, take warm water and lightly rub off all of the excess. Once your lips are completely dry, rub on chapstick or a really good quality lip balm. I especially like EOS chapstick eggs, as you already know. And youre done! I usually do this about once a month to keep my lips smooth.
I really hope you enjoy this tip!


The Body Shoppe Body Butter

I don't even know how to start this post, but here I go! This butter is my new obsession. Its superr thick, for dry skin in the winter, and has the most amazing peach scent and color. Its a good size, so i can basically bring it anywhere. Because The Body Shoppe believes in fair trade, it was kind of expensive, because it uses natural ingredients. This tin was 20$, but definitly worth it!! Out of all of the products ive recommended so far, this is the best!

Benetint Lip Stain

Hi everyone! It's been such a long time since ive posted, and i apologize! Today I am reviewing Benetint's Pocket Pal Stain and Lip gloss. the stain looks really red, but it goes on as a gorgeous champagne color. It stays for about three hours. I don't like the gloss, because it's too thick, but It was still a good buy. The Pocketpal was 20$ total, at Sephora, and it is a great product!

More Revlon Lip Butter!!

I finally got more lip butters! I got sweet tart and cotton candy. I really love sweet tart, but I unfortunately lost it already. Its very bright. Cotton candy is more glossy and has gorgeous gold flakes mixed with the color. It blends amazingly!!! I really want to just buy the whole collection!
In the picture is cotton candy.


Galaxy Nails!

Love it but it took soooo long! Used about five bottles of nails polish and a TON of patience.

The Posession

Helloo!!! So i know this isnt relevant to beauty or makeup, but i just had to review this. Today I saw The Possession with a big group of friends, and it was my first scary movie ever; im a big chicken. It was really intense at parts, but I do have to say, its a good excuse to cuddle with your crush;)! Personally, I wont sleep for the next three weeks.

American Pride Nails

Last night, i was really bored and decided that my nails needed to be repainted. So, of course I went on Pinterest and found this idea!!! The dark blue is Russian Navy by Opi, the red is a Shades of the Season brand, and the white is Never Been Kissed from Wet and Wild. I love it!

Hey everyone! I am sososo sorry I haven't been posting, but i won't bore you with excuses. This is my favorite mousse. It really holds together whatever style I put in, and has a weightless feel. No crunch allowed! It's also great for cheer practice, because it keeps every strand in place. I got it at Wal Mart for about 7$, which I think is a pretty good price for its performance.

Love ya,

I love my nails like this! They're like 80s neon/flourescent and sparkly! This is a base coat of OPI Russian Navy, Sally Hansen HD in Laser, and then Wet and Wild Crazy Orchid on top. If you haven't noticed, I love sky inspired nails!

Love ya,

Favorite Lip Balms

Review: Pink Body Mist: Soft and Dreamy

I. LOVE. THIS. MIST. It's truly amazing. It smells like yummy cotton candy, warm sugar cookies, a bakery, and everything in between. I can't say I love the price, though. 8$ is a little too much for such a small bottle. I still love it!!!

Caviar Nails

Hi girls! So many of you are probably aware of the overpriced "Caviar Manicure" from Ciaté. As you might not know, you can purchase the beads from most craft stores for only 3$, and use any regular nail polish. I tried this out today, and loved the results! I hope you love them too!


P.S. I like the black better than the silver/white

Review: EOS Chapstick Egg in Summer Fruit

Hi! I'm really trying to keep this short and sweet, but it's really hard because of the fact that I'm in love with this product. It tastes good, smells good, and is sooo cute! I use it multiple times every day, and I lovelovelove the texture and feel of it on my lips. Most of these "eggs" are around 3$ each, and you can get them at most drug stores. I recommend this product to anyone, and EVERYONE! It truly works wonders.

Alyssa :*

P.S. Please excuse my very chipped and ugly nails. We are out of nail polish remover D:

School is Starting!

Hello everyone, I have some news for my readers today. I'm restarting school on Wednesday, the 29th, so my posts will probably have longer spans of time in between them. I'll try as hard as I can to work around this issue. In the meantime, my last few days of summer, I'll try to post one, maybe two things a day.

Thanks for understanding,
Alyssa :)

Tutorial: Newspaper Nails

Hey guys! Sorry Ive been superrrr busy!!! Okay so today, here's a tutorial for newspaper nails! I use a different method from others, so i hope it works for you!!!

1. Gather materials: top coat, white polish, rubbing alcohol, newspaper, and nail polish remover/Q-tip.

2. Paint the nail white. I usually don't use a base coat.

3. Wait for the nail to completely dry.

4. Soak the nail for five seconds in the rubbing alcohol. Then, quickly press the newspaper onto the nail, face down. Make sure it covers all of the nail, and apply pressure for twenty seconds. Once it dries and you. cant see the words anymore, gently rip off the excess paper.

5. Clean the outer edges of the nail.

6. Now that the nail is dry, put it in the rubbing alcohol again and take it out very quickly.

7. Wait one minute after taking it out, and then put on a top coat, regardless of if it's dry or not.

8. Show off your nails!

Review: Hard Candy That's How Eye Roll in Drama

Hey girls! Today, I'm reviewing Hard Candy That's How Eye Roll shadow stick in Drama. The stick is a duo of a gorgeous chocolate brown, and a peacy roll on shimmer. This product worked great; I have nothing bad to say about it. For this look, I penciled on the dark shade across my whole eyelid, and then rolled the shimmer along the rest. I LOVE this product, and it was a steal, only 6$ at Wal Mart. In the picture, I'm wearing Maybelline's BB Cream, and I'll do a review o that soon.

Ta Ta For Now,
Alyssa <3

Attempted Space Nails

Hi guys! Today is a nail picture, it's supposed to be space nails, but it didn't come out to well. I did it without a tutorial, so I guess it isn't too bad. I love the stars, it's my ambition to become an astrologist! Anyways, for this design, the polishes are in the order that I used them. Opi Russian Navy, Sally Hansen HD in Laser and Spectrum, and then a Just Shine silver sparkle. Hope you enjoy!

Review: Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss

Hello, beauties! Today, I am reviewing Maybelline's Baby Lips Product in Peach Kiss. I recently bought every color in the Baby Lips collection, but Peach Kiss was my favorite! It's a shiny, new, almost gloss-almost lipstick. It hydrates your lips very well, but should be worn with chapstick underneath. Normally, one coat isn't enough, and you have to apply it appx. once every hour and a half. The smell is very yummy, and the color works good with pale AND dark skin! This is a great multitasking product!

My Daily Eyeshadow

Hi everyone! Today I'm showing you my favorite eyeshadow palette. It's a generic eyeshadow palette distributed by Markwins, Intl. This palette has 80 different shades, My favorite shade is the brown shade on coordinate 7,8. It highlights my brown eyes very well. Some of these shades go on sheer, some go on matte, and some go on very thin. However, this palette is great for blending of all types, and the matte pink doubles as a blush! From now on, whenever I use a shadow from this palette, I'll refer to it as EBFP and then the coordinates of the shades I used.

Review: Revlon Lip Butter, Raspberry Pie

Hi! I just bought this new lip butter yesterday, it's in the Colorburst Lip Butter Line for Revlon. J have to say, i love this product. the color is lon-lasting, has tons of shine, and hydrates your lips. The color is very rich, and works well for people that have yellow tinted teeth, like one of my clients that I tried it on. The pictures show this a little lighter than the actual shade, and the shade goes on darker than its color on the stick. The price was 7.99 at Wal-Mart, and I believe that I got my money's worth out of it. I will definitely be buying more Revlon Lip Butters!!!

Love to all,

Soft 80's Vibe

In this makeover, I have used a palette of 80's inspired colors. I used Revlon Lip Butter in the shade of Raspberry Pie, Maybelline's Dream Bouncy Blush in the shade of Fresh Pink, my favorite Sheercover Minerals concealer and foundation, and three shades of blue in an 80 color palette from… Walmart! Please excuse the bad lighting, bad hair day, and uneven skin. I didn't take much preparation for this look.
