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.

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.
