This is what happens whenever I use one of my BH Cosmetics face brushes. No, I do not have any white pets. Those hairs are 100% makeup brush. They did this before and after washing. I'm so over them. None of their other brushes are worth it, either. I'm super aggravated.

I don't usually post the things that I wear, but maybe I'll start. [:
I don't have the best fashion sense, but I like what I wear and I wear what I like. ;]
Just a random, quick post for funsies.
Oh, oh! I was featured on Meredith Jessica's blog(<--- click) as March's blogger of the month! Go look and follow her! She's so sweeeeet.

Hello, everyone. I have been eyeing the website allcosmeticswholesale.com for a few months now, debating on what to order and waiting to get off of my "no-buy" so I could check them out. I finally ordered this past Monday and can honestly say that I'm very happy that I did.
Allcosmeticswholesale.com's name says it all. They sell a variety of cosmetics from high end and drug store brands at typically discounted prices. This website has a policy of free shipping over $75, so I, being the sucker that I am for free shipping and having a few extra dollars to spend on myself, ordered just over that amount. I found Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box with Primer for $27.00 compared to the retail of $38.00. I also found mini Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencils for $5-$10 which is an awesome deal if you want to try them out. Oh, oh and Too Faced Shadow Insurance for $16.00 rather than $18.00
Once I was just under the $75 limit, I was looking for something to push me over. I found Maybelline XXL Pro Eye Studio Volume Mascara in Very Black for $5.00 rather than the retail of $10.50. I personally like this mascara. One of the better ones I've tried.
The first step: white "microfiber" coat.
The second step: actual mascara. One coat.
Here, I added a third coat. As I said, I like this mascara. It doesn't do anything extremely dramatic, but it gave my lashes some pretty decent volume. Not to mention, it was only five dollars, so I can't complain. [:
Anyways, I ordered on Monday and received my order on Thursday. I believe they're in WA, but I could very well be wrong. >.< Super fast shipping. Priority mail. Everything I ordered was present and everything was bubble wrapped tightly in order to prevent makeup injury. ;]
Everything was just as expected. I really enjoyed my experience with this company and would recommend them to friends and family.
I did a look with some of the products I ordered. This is not everything, just a few things I choose to use for this look. [:
Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box, Mini 24/7 Pencil in Radium and Eye Pencil in Honey.
XXL Pro Eye Studio Volume Mascara(very black)
Stila Liquid Eyeliner - Black.
Sorry for the blurry picture. My camera died. Taken from my phone. Mascara, Book of Shadows, Eyeliners. [:
And here's the look! [:
I LOVE the way "Honey" looks above the eyeliner. I definitely recommend this pencil.
Again, my camera was dead. So these were from my cell phone. [: Go check out allcosmetciswholesale.com!
As for the Stila Liquid Eyeliner-- it's awful. Even at a discount of $9.00(originally $18.00), I wouldn't recommend it. It's extremely difficult to work with, it's hard to layer and I had to go over it with black eyeshadow to make it look presentable. Do not do not do not purchase it! Please! Save your money. [:
I'll make a post for the rest of my products asap. [;
Man, I missed doing this. :P

This is just kind of a basic, black, dark lipstick look. This is really typical, daily look for me. I switched it up a bit and added blue eyeshadow as eyeliner.
Simple black sweater and jeans. Usual outfit. Messy bathroom, thanks to the pumpkin' butt/godzilla child of mine. ;]
My front screen camera fails. The colors are a little off, sorry.
At this point, I'm just playing with photos.
That's all, doves. Just a silly camera phone post.
Sugarpill Poison Plum Eyeshadow(lips)
CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Embrace
Mysterious blue eyeshadow that seems to be an old CoverGirl color.
Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest Black
CoverGirl Aqua Smoothers foundation in Ivory.
Oh, hey! Does anyone know of any good black lipsticks?!
Let me know in the comments!

Look at that, I still exist! Sorry that I've been MIA. The shift from the holidays to starting college has made blogging a bit impossible. Not to mention; munchkin' and I passed the flu back and forth for three weeks. lol. I am back, though. I plan to be more active than ever with even more to talk about! [:
As for music lately:
My music taste covers so many different genres. lol.
As for makeup:
I've been on a no-buy since Novemberish so I haven't had anything extremely exciting to talk about. My camera had been out of commission, so pictures were in short supply, unfortunately. It's working again, though! So makeup pictures will surely be back!
As for my layout:
I hate it. I need to make one. Ugh.
As for Bacon:
I don't know if I've mentioned it on here before, but bacon is my all time favorite food. I love pretty much anything to do with bacon.
Well, I found these guys on YouTube. They make the craziest food out of nonsense and junk. WARNING: They are mildly explicit and vulgar. DO NOT check them out if you are against such things or are sensitive to it. Also, if you have a weak stomach, you should probable steer clear. Haha.
Also, my wonderful mother bought me Bacon Scented Hand Sanitizer. It smells like a straight bacon skillet and it makes me so happy. Bahaha.
Expect more posts from me, because I'm back!

I'm sorry, but I'm not doing to scheduled makeup anymore! I failed at keeping up and I wasn't happy with hardly any of the looks that I came up with. :/ It was fun for the first few days, then I just got bored. Haha.

This look was just a simple, quick look before work. Under three minutes to do, one color, and liner/mascara. Nothing fancy. [:
Sorry for the picture quality. >.<\
