Revlon Whipped Colour Stay Foundation Review Monday, Sep 24 2012 

Hello!
Alas Revlon has done it again, they’ve created a new Colour stay foundation which has created quiet the buzz in the beauty industry. Everyone seems to be picking it up lately and also a lot of the fans of the liquid colour stay foundation have picked this one up and have compared it. Now I don’t have the liquid colour stay foundation, but I’ve heard so many good things about it, that I actually might pick it up soon and give it a try. The first looks at this foundation was.. uhh ohh they copied the maybelline mouse foundation.. wrong! I hadn’t previously owned and revlon foundations until now, I was un sure of my shade, in drugstores I found it very hard to pick a colour. There is only one tester, which is one shade.. which makes it even more difficult to pick one shade and try and get it right. I did some research first.. I looked up people that had MAC cosmetics foundations and I had seem if they had the revlon foundation and what colour in the revlon they were if they were an NW20 in MAC , which is what I am. That made it easier.. trust me.. it did take about a week to come up with this theory and to try it and see if I could come up with a shade closet to my skin colour.. and the final result.. I did!!! I purchased this foundation in the colour 220 nude. Which seems to suit people who are an NW20 in MAC Foundations. Lets start by describing the formula of this foundation.. to me it is a whipped mousse…. if that makes any sense. It is not liquid.. not creme ( close to though) so more so like a whipped formula, if I tip the jar with the lid off upside down.. it is definitely not going anywhere it is that thick.

Colour: 220 Nude

It isn’t full of air either, the packaging is less than desirable.. because it is a heavy glass jar.. and I think if you dropped this on a hard floor.. it would break. It comes with a twist on and off lid and a white cap to keep the product inside the jar, it seems unsanitary to keep dipping a makeup brush in the product.. which I guess it is, but you can also scoop some out onto your hand each time you apply this, that way your not dipping a dirty brush in it constantly. There are a few ways to apply this foundation that seems to work for this product.. which is a way that I found works best for me and it is using a stiff stippling brush such as the real techniques stippling brush and or the sigma brushes that are very dense and are able to buff in this product very well.

220 Nude

The product claims to last for 24 hours.. I don’t know anyone that would wear makeup for 24 hours while awake.. not me! I seem to get about 8+ hours out of it, with a powder and a setting spray, such as Urban decay all nighter spray!  It seems to work for oily and or dry skin.. which makes it good and appealing to all skin types.  The glass jar doesn’t do the colours justice.. you have to take off the lid and remove the white cap to actually look at the colours available.  I picked this foundation up for $17.99 Canadian… that is expensive compared to other drugstore foundations.. but this one does work and is definitely a medium to full coverage foundation worth trying if you don’t want to spend the money on a high end foundation.  Overall I will be re purchasing this foundation in the future , continuing to love the Revlon colour stay products.

NYC trip- Thursday Monday, Aug 27 2012 

Thursday morning was our last morning in the fabulous NYC times square area, we got up early because we had to be at the airport early.. again to leave manhattan. We all got up and got ready and I was doing my makeup and freaking out about the plane ride I had to endure at 11:29am-12:40pm. We left the hotel early, and got a cab to JFK from manhattan, it was a quick ride to the airport, we were in a Ford Escape, hybrid, it even had a tv in the back of it. We got to the airport and where we checked in and gave them our bags was near the hawaiian airlines check in, I was freaking that my luggage was going to go to hawaii..lol So we went thru security and then went to get breakfast in T5 (terminal 5 at JFK) Jetblue’s home terminal. This time around the flight wasn’t so bad for me.. take off was smooth as well as flying, not as much turbulence, it was a few times but not that bad, so I didnt mind. I could actually put a tv show on and enjoy it for a bit. As we were decending… whether it was just me or not but we seemed to drop once really fast..and then level out, that scared the shit out of me. I had a neck pillow that I had bought from JFK and I was squeezing it the entire time on the plane home, also in the middle of T5 I dropped an entire dunkin donuts iced coffee on the floor and was soo embarrased at that point and flustered because of the flight home, so I told a janitor to clean it up and I went and got back in line and got another one. We ate and then had about 1ish hours to wait for our flight, so me and my sister went and walked up and down our terminal and watched planes take off and land and we had some fun on the floor escalators, and we saw a British airways plane take off.. that plane was huge, So as we were decending I got pretty scared and curled up into a ball on my sister and sat there until we touched down on the run way, we seem to hit the run way very fast and we all felt the brakes hard. Then we went to the baggage claim area and got our bags, my heat protectant had spilled, right after I grabbed my bag off the conveyer belt I opened it up at the buffalo airport and I could smell that something had leaked, I had my liquids in a bag, so nothing got on my clothing. I took that bag out and just carried it, we went and caught a shuttle to go across the street to the days in hotel across from the buffalo airport where our car was and got in our car, went to timmys and headed for the border home. We didnt have any trouble at the border at all, it didnt take that long to get home as it did going over the boarder. We got home and all ran for our cell phones.. which sounds bad but it was thursday and we didnt have them since sunday afternoon.

Inglot freedom system eye shadow palette review Sunday, Aug 12 2012 

Inglot cosmetics was created over 25 years ago, A young chemist created the Inglot’s cosmetics. All Inglot cosmetics are made within the European Union and 95% of them are factory-made in our own state of the art production facilities.  The unique Freedom System allows customers to create their own custom palettes with countless shades and color combinations of different face products.  While I was in New York I knew there was an Inglot store in Times Square right near where I was staying, the 2nd day I was in NYC I decided to go  into Inglot as I was in Sephora earlier and decided on creating my own palette. I went in and it is a small space that sits on a corner, in times square. I saw all the colors to choose from for the freedom system palette, the employee was very helpful and nice, I picked the square 5 palette and choose 5 colors, and then she took the ones I picked and went to a draw and got them for me. To buy the palette is separate from the 5 colors , the palette alone is -$11.00 which isn’t bad , the colors are $6.00 each. While at Sephora I picked up the Naked Palette by Urban Decay, and I love the colors it has, it also comes with a brush. I’m more drawn to Inglot because of the freedom system, I will post pictures in this blog post to show the 2 palettes I created for myself.  When looking at all the colors to decide I will admit I was overwhelmed with choices.. But I stopped and thought about what I would want in a palette to use for every day and also change for evening looks. The Inglot Store in times Square is located diagonally from Hershey’s store and across from the M&M store.

Palette #1

Palette #2

The palettes are all magnetized, the cover for them sticks with magnets and also the eyeshadows stick in the palette with strong magnets.

NYC Trip- Tuesday Saturday, Aug 11 2012 

Tuesday morning we woke up in our hotel room in NYC, and realized it was real.. we were actually in NYC!  Our mom went and got us break fast and we got ready and left the hotel to catch our bus tour that was doing the down town loop, we saw all of lower manhattan,we got off on a few stops to go shopping, I stopped in at Sephora, and Victoria secreys: Pink, and picked up a sweater. We went to the empire state building, I didn’t end up going in the empire state building.. it is a little high for my liking, so i went to a Starbucks and sucked up their wi-fi for about an hour, also along the tour we stopped at ground zero.. didn’t go in.. because you had to pay to go in.. we were already sick of standing in lines… so we got back on the bus and kept going. We got off at the Macy’s stop and went in.. it takes up an entire block.. 11 storeys.. all for macys, the escalators.. are so old.. I don’t recommend using them take the elevators! I picked up a Ralph Lauren Polo shirt for my dad in Macy’s, we saw the huge post office, madison square garden and a few homeless people. I wanted to get out of that area quick.. I feel like all I did was shop.. oh wait.. thats what I went there for. That night for dinner myself and my mom went to TGI Fridays… was 2 storey restaurant in times square, was more expensive then we thought. but the portions were large and very tasty.

Scared Of Everything Monday, Jul 30 2012 

You read the title right! .. well maybe its a bit over done.. but Its true… I’ve gone through life thinking about everything very thoroughly.. maybe more than I should to the point of scaring my self out of a lot of things, I’m not necessarily proud of it, it is more of a hassle but its me! Even the littlest things sometimes scare me.. if given enough time to think about it. There are people who are just the “go getters” in life, they don’t need to think about what they are doing everything just seems to workout for them. Where as for me.. I seem to want to think each situation through.. to make sure it will work in my favour.. or everything will be ok in the end for me. I sometimes try and tell myself.. “Today.. I’m just going to go out and do.. and not think to hard” It never works.. well it actually has sometimes, and I end up proud of my self.. but it never is enough or the situation wasn’t that bad. With jobs some people I know just get shit ass lucky and nail the interview and get hired.. me: I have to think about it.. get nervous.. then try and survive it.. and I make it out to be a traumatic thing.. but really its not that bad. I guess my brain works to hard 9 times out of 10, some people can just go out and have fun with friends , Me: I gotta plan.. every minute of it.. or so it seems and I get scared if things aren’t gonna go how i planned them in my head. Weird… I know! I tend to sit back and applaud the people who can just do anything on a whim, and I sit their and wish it was me. A few people have come into my life.. who made me a more confident person and that helped a ton. A few times I was able to just go out and do things without thinking.. like going ridiculous speeds on highways and jam to music.. (Note: I don’t trust many drivers) and laugh and have fun, I always think of the bad things that can happen. Soon I’ll be flying to NYC and I will admit.. I’ve been counting down the days until I have to get on this flight. (Note: I’ve never flown before) uhh ohhh. my flight is about an hour and 20 minutes ishhh, As of today It is exactly a week until I leave for Buffalo. Im staying in Buffalo across from the airport the night before my flight.. just to make sure I get my flight on time.. Otherwise.. I’m screwed!  Each day I’m trying to be more confident and self assured.. I don’t want to go through life afraid of everything… even the smallest of things, because in the end I know I will miss opportunities that are available to me

 

-Anyone else with this issue?
