Maybelline the Falsies ♥ Review

Hello everyone! Sorry that I've been MIA the last couple of weeks! They were busy and also lazy haha. But today I'm back with a review of my favorite mascara! I know that this has been talked about and reviewed to death, but I ran to the store yesterday to pick up a new mascara and ended up grabbing this one--again! So I felt it was only right to give the Falsies it's proper review. Enjoy xx

First off, for a drug store mascara, I really like the packaging. Its not too obnoxious or too boring, its cute and average with nice colors and practical sizes. I also really like how big the tip of the mascara wand is. Its really wide and allows you to catch almost every lash in one swipe. Although it may take a few tries and different angles to get your application just right (I know it did when I first used it!), after you have it down you will be in love! This mascara is the perfect amount of length and volume, without clumping or looking too heavy. It compares to the Benefit They're Real mascara, and is almost $20 cheaper! It also lasts all day without flaking or smudging in the least.  Overall I recommend this mascara to everyone, especially if you're looking for a quality mascara and a little more pocket money! 

Thanks for reading! I have a lovely day! xx

Would You Rather ♥ Makeup Edition

*picture from tumblr*

Hello my lovelies! Sorry I didn't post much last week, I was super busy with school and just didn't have the time! But this school week is going to be a lot less stressful and I promise I'll be posting more :) Today I decided to do a quick little would you rather makeup tag. Enjoy! xx  
1. Would you rather only ever wear eye makeup or skin makeup?
I would definitely rather wear skin makeup! My skin is very splotchy and uneven, and I have a lot of dark marks from acne because my skin scars very easily; so skin makeup is a must!

2. Would you rather cut off all your hair, or never cut your hair again?
I would rather never cut my hair again--it doesn't grow much regardless!

3. Would you rather always wear your clothes too big, or too small?
I would wear my clothes too big. I like big baggy sweaters and flowy skirts, especially coming near the colder months. Tight clothes bother me and I hardly ever wear them!

4. If you were given $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
I would rather buy clothes! I have a lot of both already, but I don't like to wear the same outfit twice! 

5. Would you rather wear lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
I would rather wear lipstick as eyeliner, but only because black, brown and purple lips don't sound too appealing! haha

6. Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or Biker Shorts in public?
I'd probably wear MC Hammer pants to be honest, because then maybe I could like pretend that they were supposed to be harem pants and then people wouldn't think that I was mental. 

7. Would you rather never be able to fill in your eyebrows or only fill them in using a sharpie?
I would rather not be able to fill them in. I have dark eyebrows and they're pretty well shaped. I don't really even need to fill them in now, I just do because I feel like it frames my face more!

8. Would you rather never pluck your eyebrows, or never shave your legs?
I would move somewhere really cold and then always wear pants, because God knows, me without my eyebrows plucked is a me that no one ever wants to see!

Thank you for reading! Have a lovely day :) xx

Music Review ♥ Lorde

Hello everyone! So lately I've been feeling obligated to share some of my music discoveries with you guys. I've gotten a lot of comments whenever I've posted playlists about my music taste and I felt like it was only right to share my findings with you all. 

So a few months ago while having a roam around Spotify I came across a particularly interesting character--Lorde. I'm honestly not sure how many people know of her yet in other countries (they just started playing one of her songs on the radio where I live), but I found her there haha. Anyway, she is a fantastic singer and her songs are so interesting and different. I love her style of music and its almost difficult to compare her to other artists because shes so unique. If I had to I would say that the style of her music is like Vampire Weekend mixed with upbeat Lana Del Rey and a sprinkle of edgy Marina and the Diamonds haha. Her stuff is definitely worth a listen though, and she has two EPs out: Love Club and Tennis Court and just released her first album called Pure Heroine. Below are links to a few of her songs:

My favorites are Buzzcut Season and Glory and Gore! Thank you for reading!

Autumn Tag ♥

Hello lovelies! Today I've decided to do the Autumn Tag that I saw on idkmatilda! Autumn (or fall as I call it) is my favorite season and even though there isn't much of it where I live--Arizona gets like two official weeks of a proper autumn haha--I still love it! Enjoy xx

1.  Favorite thing about it? I love fall fashion and fall colors! I have a lot of warm, fall colors crowding my closet and I always get excited to pull them out each year! I also love the holiday's in autumn, I seriously can not wait for Halloween!! 

2.  Favorite drink? I love Caramel Apple Spice Ciders from Starbucks, its feel like drinking a hug in a cup :)

3. Favorite scent/candle? I'm not super into warm-y scented candles (the smell kind of sickly to me to be honest) but I love the Twilight Woods Bath and Body Works scent for any time!

4. Best lipstick? My go to lipstick all year round is Maybelline Color Whisper in Pin Up Peach! Its my all time favorite lipstick, and goes perfect with almost any skin tone and outfit!

5. Go to moisturizer? I use Juice Beauty Oil Free Moisturizer, which is organic and paraben free. Its really great for those with oily or combination/ acne prone skin!

6. Go to colors for the eyes? Bronze and gold eye shadows are a must for fall. My favorites are Half Baked and Chopper from the Naked 2 palette.

7. Favorite music or band/singer to listen to? I love alternative/indie and classic rock! Vampire Weekend makes me wanna cuddle up in a sweater and wear oxfords for some reason haha, so they're at the to of my list right now!

8. Favorite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)? I'm obsessed with skirt and legging ensembles in fall and winter. They are literally all I wear! Add a scarf, combat boots and a big sweater and you got yourself a Jordan styled outfit :)

9. Autumn treat? I love hot drinks and all the food that fall holidays bring :)

10.  Favorite place to be? I love going out at night during the fall. I live in Arizona, so its still quite warm during the day, but on fall nights the weather is absolutely perfect :)

I tag everyone (mostly because I'm so lazy and don't want to pick people :))!

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day :)
