Black Friday + tips and tricks

Hey everyone how's it going?

ah such a wonderful day of consumerism haha!

The thing about Black Friday is that it's always fascinating to go and see a lot of people.But I think only of few of those items are actually on sale. I like to shop all throughout the year and I saw the trends and market prices go up and down as people usually do. Now if you live outside the USA let's say somewhere in Europe USD is definitely a lot cheaper!

anyway expect a lot of long lines and wait time and  here are my "tips"

1. Check the internet for online and in store deals

for we live in a day and age where you can almost do everything online and it's usually a lot faster,hassle free than lining up in real life haha.

2. Find the nearest store outlet near you

The outlet price cannot be beat! more savings = more money to spend on other things!

3. Wear comfy shoes and jacket

let's face it you'll be out there walking around and lining up grabbing the best deals you could find for who knows how long, Definitely a good time to gear up!

4. Eat beforehand then Bring some light snack,candy and water

you don't want to pass out and miss all these wonderful experience!

5. Go out there extra early 

now if you've done your homework and truly want to experience the glory of it all.Grab that deal you really really love and been rooting for! don't be ashamed to line up go there extra early coz you never know! some people even camp out. Plus you have more chances to find the best parking spot.

6. Be mindful 

not just of your spendings but of others as well. Don't be that person who caused the stampede,pulling stunts and acting all crazy you watched on tv. If it's for you then that item is for you no matter what happens.

7.The more the merrier

it's always fun to have company around especially if they are giving out some coupons or secret gift card or something in the entrance and ask the store clerks if you can combine the gift cards before the transaction that way you can definitely score some extra savings!

8.Enjoy!

hey don't forget to have fun and enjoy the present moment afterall that's why you are out there! expect long lines and great amount of wait time. Everyone's doing their best out there! ^^


I hope you find these tips helpful/ useful as I'd like to be reminded of these things whenever it's that time of the year again.

The Lucky Ones

Waking up every morning
Seeing you by my side
Still gives me that fluffy feeling.

As I kissed you goodbye
You told me to stay
But I gotta go
Or else I'll be late.

Now back home
You tried your best to stay awake
We talked about all sorts of things
The gap seems non existent.

At the opposite side of the spectrum
We're perfectly matched
We love and hate something about ourselves
But by the end of the day still enamoured.

We're the lucky ones
We made each other better
Never stop learning and improving
Quitting is not the answer.

Insignificant

They warned me about people like you
Who use people like a tool
Turned into a fool
Are you happy now?
As people swarm and followed you like flies
While dogs barked and howled at the moon
The media followed close by as they badly need a scoop
How sad you turned into this
zombie low life
Enslave by society
Drowning in your own ego
In time, will slowly fade away into the side lines
That will eventually evaporate into nothingness.

Bittersweet

I'd like to get to know you more
But it's too late
As I'm slowly drifting away
Moving on to the other side
I'd like to go back
how we used to
Our circumstances change so quickly
And so are we
I'd like to tell you how much I love you
and how much it pains me that there will be to no more us
No more late night drives
and late night food cravings
No more of anything
Cursing at the horizon
I muttered its better this way
At least I get to see you one last time
That foolish grin
I answered with a smirk
Goodbye my love

Mind Games

there's a thought inside my head
I can't get it out
I wanna see you instead

I've been arguing to myself
whether it's a good idea or not
mayhaps it is...I just don't know it yet

why is it so hard to ask you out
it's not as weird as it sounds
let's hang out let loose for a little while

getting pumped up
in this imaginary event
my mind is playing games with me
wasting my precious time

and so I'll just see you when I see you
call you when I miss you
and tell you that I like you
when that time comes I know that I already
love you

Good times

Imagine you and me
Walking side by side
At peace with ourselves
We could be anywhere really
We stopped by the nearby cafe and ordered a bunch of things to go
Then we head into the park and decide to have a mini picnic there also people watch
I drank my latte and you sipped into your favorite beverage
Ate some sandwiches and desserts on the side
We laughed at the littlest things
Played some games
Chattered til it's almost time for dinner
After a quick cleanup we're on our way once again into this nice corner restaurant
The waiter greeted us with a smile
We ordered something in season and something unusual for a change
The day quickly gone by as we bid each other good night
Til next time

One of a kind

I never thought I'd like you this much
Our attraction was immediate and spontaneous
I still couldn't believe I met a guy like you
So adorable,nice,humble and kind.

I'm a lucky girl to have someone like you
Just seeing and talking to you is a blessing
Every single day you never fail to amuse me
Where have you been all my life?!

One day we'll surely look back
On how and where we met
Telling absurd tales
Laughing til our bellies ache and no sound comes out.

I hope we won't forget
These lovely memories we once shared
I'll cherish it forever
Let's grow old together.

Chemistry

We saw each other on the very first day
Didn't really expect to be friends right away
You seem like a nice guy
I smiled as you wave and said hi!

You're pretty cute
And drive some girls crazy
But not me, we kept each other grounded
And company.

Then life just sorta happens
We haven't talked in awhile
Our distance grew
But then when we talk...

We picked up immediately where we left off.
I miss you my dearly beloved friend
You're one of my favorite persons in the world
And you'll always have a place inside my heart.

Makeover Essentials? Meh not really -_- | 1st Impressions/Overview


I've always wanted to try and buy off things via Hautelook a lot of people seems to rave about them online so anyway this one is one of my first purchases on their website and there are more coming hopefully on their way by now...Let's take a look at this one






But the packaging doesn't look or scream like Vanity Planet to me D:



But hey they look alike from the picture inside right? hmm...
it contains:
5 eyeshadows
4 blushes
5 lip glosses
3 applicators


expires in 12 months once opened
cruelty free
made in china
ophthalmologist tested
it does contain mineral oil

this is what it looks like detached

yup these 2 transparent lid just came off :/


 All 5 shadows without primer (finger swatch)

 All 4 blushes without primer (finger swatch)

All 5 lip glosses.You can't really see it they're more like shiny and there are no difference color wise when I swatched it in my fingers and lips these are by far the most disappointing product in this palette. And it tastes like plastic ugh SO SAD!


All 5 eyeshadows with primer swatched using a makeup brush

look at that powder kickoff oh boy!


all 4 blushes with primer swatched using a makeup brush

they look way more pigmented with primer on seriously!

I tried to do a brush swatch again of all the eyeshadows and blushes but without primer they are way less pigmented so definitely use a primer with this one.

I like the premise of this product the On the go detachable customizable palette,the clear lid but overall it's a hit and miss especially the lip glosses so I'll try to make it work somehow and mayhaps recycle the packaging like maybe remove the glosses and just replace them with other product(s) I'd like to depot or something.Lesson Learned more research before buying things online haha!

Beauty Wishlist part 7 (Anti-haul almost haha :)))


A lot of these products I haven't tried anything from the brand. This wishlist is currently into my online obsessions circle of things haha it is a bit cray there are lots of products that seems to be launching here and there. Tons of sales everywhere! Consumerism at its finest! but for now indulge me as I share with you some of the products that crossed my mind. Also I just found out about this anti haul videos on youtube which is kinda inspiring and empowering really
let me present to you the originator of such video: Kimberly Clark!

Here's my list:
All rights reserved to the owners of this pictures which I screen grabbed from the internet and pinterest ^_^v

I'm sure by now you've already heard of this Palette if not well this is inspired by the Renaissance era hence the name. I love the cranberry shades in this also there are some orange tones which is great for the fall season or if you just love these kind of colors in general haha
Price: $42 
you do get 14 eyeshadows so it's like you're paying $3/pan which is not bad. Looking at the swatches,online raves,reviews and hype if you are in that kind of thing the pigmentation and quality seems great!


The moment I saw this I was at awe like angels singing and lights streaming haha this cost about $82 WHOA! I know right?! Is this worth it? maybe..I haven't swatched it or anything in real like I just saw it in a youtube video and I just love the design and the color pigment seems I guess ok since it does cost a lot haha isn't that always the thing ohh it's so expensive it must be really good! oh terry I could only reach you in my dreams for now...Just so you know I love your design and the concept of it all it's just for now...I can't : )))


The Love Your Selfie 2 by Pur Cosmetics. I like the concept of it, the message its trying to send out to the world then again it almost seems too gimmicky to me you know what I'm saying? I'd like to try Pur Cosmetics for so long and I think this kit is nice although I don't really like sharpeningg lip things haha I don't have any green shadows in this shade range and I like the cranberry shade other than that it's all pretty basic and neutral. I'd like to see more orangey tones since it is their Fall collection. This Set retails for $42 which is $3 more than their 1st selfie palette but with this sequel you do get a lip pencil.
watch this video by Nicole


and read this blogpost by Sona: http://simplysona.com/2016/07/pur-cosmetics-love-your-selfie-2-palette/#more-14936

with their code of 20% off code whether you choose NICOL or SONA this palette will now cost $33 something not sure about tax but if you get it from the pur cosmetics website they do offer complimentary shipping which is nice and if this set expires let say in 24months once opened it's like $15/year and with 14 products it's like $2.35+ each not bad...
I haven't heard of this brand to be honest and this product is from Pure Cosmetics I stumble upon this brand when I was googling swatches for the PUR cosmetics mineral eyeshadow love your selfie 2 haha anyway this is PURE COSMETICS Essential Makeup Set which retails for $40 originally $60

What it is:
A luxe black engraved case filled with limited-edition eye shadow, lash, and cheek essentials.
 What it does:

Never overpack cosmetics again! Simply toss The Essentials All Inclusive Makeup Set in your bag and go! The Essentials by Pure Cosmetics is the ultimate travel kit with everything you need for on-the-go application. Easily create a complete look with a full range of cosmetics for the eyes, lips, cheeks and face. Luxe enough for the vanity, but practical enough for any purse!

This set contains:
- 6x 0.06 oz Neutral Eyeshadows

- 0.13 oz Shimmer Bronzer

- 2 x 0.08 oz Blushes

- 0.13 oz Translucent Powder

- 2 x 0.02 oz Lipsticks

- 0.10 fl. oz. Mini Lip Gloss

- 0.10 fl. oz. Mini Mascara

- 0.02 oz. 2-in-1 Concealer and Eye Primer

- 0.04 oz Powder Black Eyeliner

- 0.03 oz Brown Eyeliner Pencil

- 0.03 oz Pink LipLiner Pencil

- 1 x Blush Brush

- 1 x Lip Brush

- 1 x 2-in-1 Eyeshadow/Eyeliner Brush

I think this is a nice beginner's kit although I haven't tried any of their products but looking at this set it does contain a lot of product!(eyes,lips & cheeks) can't beat that for that price! although they're all neutral and limited edition! but if you're into that and haven't got any shades quite like this I feel like you might like this one. As for me I like how travel friendly it is,it seems compact and durable the thing is I feel like neutral shadows looks the same to me and the I don't really get to inspired with these shades.I could only get the basic look for this still dunno how to feel about it haha




This Palette is from Juvia's place haven't heard of it till August 1,2016 apparently they're new launched around April 1 which everyone thought was a joke. Mostly popular at instagram since that's where some youtubers say how they found out about this. This is the Nubian 2 Palette which was inspired by an African Empire in old Egypt, headed by the beauty icon named Nefertiti. She was famously endowed with strength and spirituality. This palette consists of 12 versatile arraign of metallic shades and matte shades. 

Consists of 4 Matte Colors and 8 metallic pop of colors .

Each Pan Net Weight : 3.5 g /0.12 OZ

Product is Cruelty Free.

I'd like to show you a picture of the very 1st Nubian collection in light green cardboard which consists of 12 rich and highly pigmented Nude shades. Brows, Golds, and some Neutrals. But for some reason I have a hard time  pasting that picture here ugh anyway so it has 4 Transition Matte Colors and 8 shimmery/ Pearl Textured Colors 

Ingredients
Talc, Mineral Oil, Magnesium Stearate, Iron Oxides, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Mica, Kaolin, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Chromium Oxide Greens, Manganese Violet, FD & C Yellow 5 Al Lake, FD&C Blue 1 Al Lake.

Net Wt: 18 grams / 0.63 oz

If ALLERGIES occur please discontinue use.If you have ALLERGIES please do not use.

Whoa reading the disclaimer bout the 1st one seems kinda alarming to me what do you thing? although the 1st one consist more of the warm tones I think I was attracted to this first but the 2nd one seems more fun and vibrant and does look as if you're getting more in the 2nd one due to its size.

The thing about Juvia's place I watched some youtube videos about some drama bout a winner who won a giveaway but didn't get it or whatever also bad customer service I hope they fixed that and let me find that video.

she also made a blogpost about it . So yeah take what you will from that. As for now Imma just gonna wait patiently til my next Palette calls me haha

Shady

Hello

Do I know you?

It seems like eons ago since I last saw you

I tried to reach out

But it seems my message wasn't fully conveyed

I travelled to the moon and back

And yet you didn't even bother to say..hey!

My last contact seems like a lost cause

I gave you two chances

I refuse to give you another

Like a strikeout meant to happen

It's extremely sad to lose a friend

Or at least that's what I thought you were

But I guess not

So.. goodbye stranger

It was nice to know you

At least for a little while

That mere thought was rather comforting

I ought to go 

To a place faraway

And never again will I ever bother to the likes of you.

It seems rather bitter to part this way

Then again what else is there to say?

100 layers of lip tints! #NEVERAGAIN
