Apology to my beautiful readers/followers...

I'm sooooo sorry for being such a terrible blogger the past few months. A lot has been going on in my life that's very personal and i have not been able to find it in me to post regularly so i took some time for myself to figure out a couple of things. 

I thank you all for your comments, messages and requests that i will get to as soon as i can. I'm hoping to get back on track with blogging in the new month so i can start a good month fresh and nice. 

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

FOTD - Liner and Lashes

I don't usually not wear eyeliner on my waterline because i feel it makes me look a bit naked LOL! But at the same time drawing the right top lashline line will make eyes look more open and give that classy look that is perfect for everyday. I paired up the look with the new ES lashes that look long in person. The picture don't do them much justice but nonetheless it works out. Hope you like it =)

Review: KKCENTERHK False Eyelashes

I was recently contacted by a representative from who was kind enough to provide my with some lashes to try out. They offer a variety of different types of falsies, wigs and other items. I love that they have a really huge selection of lashes that you can choose from at a very affordable price for the amount of lashes you get, depending on which type you choose. 

I was sent four different sample boxes of the ES brand: A020, A134, A109, A119. Each box contains 10 pair of lashes. 
A020 - Clear liner short under lower eyelashes - $3.50
I've never tried lower lashes before so it was kind of interesting to see how they work. I'm still experimenting with how to use them and wear them. It's personally not something i would wear on a daily basis but definitely something i would consider adding to my eyes for a night out. The lashes themselves are quite long so they have to be cut and adjusted to the shape of your eyes. 
A134 - Hand Made Clear Line Black Natural False Eyelashes - $4.98
Out of all of lashes, these have to be my favorite ones. They seem very natural, long and curled up very nicely. They kind of remind of Kim Kardashian style of lashes where they're long enough to reach close to the eyebrow. These seem that long because they curl as i applied mascara so i love that about them. 

A109 - Black false EyeLashes - $3.80
I'm not sure if i prefer these specific lashes since my own lashes aren't too long and the reason why i would wear lashes is to have longer thicker lashes. This specific pair has very thin hair, so while it gives the length it doesn't give me the volume im looking for. They do however work great cut in half and keeping focus on elongating the outer corner of the eye.
A119 - Luxe Black false EyeLashes - $5.20
 First thing that i thought when i looked at these lashes was "Snooki" LOL! They're gorgeous thick lashes that you would definitely wear on a night out. They don't look natural for everyday, unless you prefer this look. I love that the band is flexible to it adjusts to the eye shape pretty easily and stays put nicely. Again, they're very long so you might have to cut and adjust to your eyes. 

In general i think the wesbite should be checked out for good quality lashes at very reasonable prices. You have a ton of variety of lashes to choose from. I haven't had problems with them so far and i would probably consider buying from them in the future since i'm lash addict LOL! 
Disclaimer: I was sent these for review purpose by the representative of the company. 
I was not paid for this review and what i've said is my honest opinion.

My top 2010 favorites!

First of... Happy New Year everyone!!! Thank you to all the new subbies that read my page..Welcome! I'm really sorry i didn't post an official new years post, i've been having personal issues to deal with so i haven't had much blogging time but im hoping i can fix that and get back on track. 
I know this post is a bit late but i just have to mention a few products that i couldn't live without in my makeup collection in the past year. I would definitely find myself re-purchasing all of these products as soon as i finish them. I'm going to go through the products and tell you why i loved them individually. 

Urban Decay Naked Palette - I'm pretty sure this one is on a lot of your lists for 2010. This was a big deal when it first came out and it's been my most used palette that i own. The color selection is amazing and works for any natural/smokey look you can think of coming up with. I believe this is a permanent palette so i can always find it. I would highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't yet have it. Check out review and swatches HERE.

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty foundation in Sandy Beige - I've used this for most of the year and i prefer it over any other drugstore foundation that i've tried. As soon as i went back to it after using the Revlon Photoready for a while, i knew that this one was my keeper LOL! I have a quick review on it so check it out HERE.

Mac Rhapsody in Two mineralized blush - I've been using this every single day since i got it from the Too Fabulous collection that came out last year. I use it as a highlight, not so much as a blush since it's so glowy and shimmery. I mostly use it on the bridge of my nose and sometimes on my cheeks if i dont use another shimmery blush.

Mac Refined Golden bronzer - I actually have to go buy another one because i finished the one i got from the To The Beach collection. It's the perfect bronzer to me. The little golden sparkles don't show up on the face but it still gives a nice bronzy glow. I love using this to contour my cheek bones and my hairline on my forehead. So far, it's my favorite bronzer out there. 

MeMeMe blush in Rouge - i recently did a review on this blush because i just can't stop using it. It's a gorgeous color, and gives a great glow to my face. Too bad it's not sold in the US but ill definitely swap for more in the future. You can check out swatches and a full review HERE.

Mac Myth lipstick - I'm almost finished with this one that i have and if i don't get a backup soon i feel like i will die lol! I don't think any lipstick in this world can replace the love that i have for this one. It's definitely pale but with a gloss on top, it's perfect for me. I love the nude- pink color pay-off. It's a satin finish so it goes on very smooth. Definitely my HG lipstick

NYX Sweet heart lipgloss - I love combining this with Myth lipstick. It's not an annoying sticky gloss. It's very creamy and shinny and makes my lips look a bit fuller and very nice. The smell and taste are like cherry coke but i got used to it by now lol Check out swatch HERE.

Milani Liquif'Eye metalic eyeliner pencil - I can't part with this eyeliner. I re-purchased it all year since i first tried it out. It's the perfect eyeliner that doesn't irritate my eyes at all. Definitely my HG drugstore liner. Check out a full review with pictures HERE.

Sally Girl Mini baked eyeshadow in Grey Purple - this has been my favorite purple that i would not hesitate to keep re-purchasing. Especially when it's only 99 cents! I think this is the top purple that i own and i always use it most over any other eyeshadow that i have. Highly recommend these. Check out swatch and more colors HERE.

Sinful Colors in Easy Going - i always find myself reaching for this shade out of all the nailpolished i own. It's a milky pink color and it works great all year long. It makes me feel like i still have a slight tan so i love wearing it right now LOL! You can never go wrong with simple shades like these so it's definitely my top pick. 
What are some of your "can't live without" products?
