Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

My friends, I have found a new holy grail item. It's the new mascara from Clinique. I have never had any luck with Clinique products, they always made me break out, but this is awesome.

I love the cute packaging. It is specially designed for your bottom lashes. I bet a lot of us tried to apply mascara on our bottom lashes with any regular mascara. The problem with that is that the brushes tend to be bigger and (at least my) lower lashes are smaller... the results... a lot of mascara ends up on your skin. Another of the problems is that regular mascara smudges and it makes it look like you didn't use any concealer, and you end up with panda eyes. The Clinique bottom lash mascara it $10 dlls for .07 fl oz, it is available in two colors. Black and Brown. Although it is not waterproof, it doesn't smudge!It features a tiny brush that is actually great, it allow you to even get those baby lashes in the inner and outer corner of your eyes. You can even use it on your upper lashes for those lashes you big brushes never seems to reach.
Here I have the Rimmel sexy curves wand so you can compare the difference.

I think it makes a huge difference in my lashes!


It really opens up your eyes!

Love it, definitely would repurchase.

Stila Trendsetting in Tokyo

I while back I purchased this from Sephora, It's only $10 and I couldn't resist. There were a total of 5 little palettes, and this one was the one that Stood out to me the most. I felt that the color combination on this palette is the best out of the others, like they go perfect together. It consists of 4 eyeshadows (a gold, pink, matte blue and a sparkly black) and a convertible lip and cheek color. This was my first Stilla purchase and so far I'm happy with it.

From top to Bottom and Left to Right. Sake, Kawai, Shibuya, Peace Sign, Sakura(peace sign, shibuya, kawai, sake)

I love how kawai and sake are so wearable, and appropriate for work and school and you can pump the look using peace sign or shibuya as eyeliner. However, I have to say that peace sign and shibuya aren't as pigmented, and shibuya is very hard to blend, something that is common with matte shadows, the others have no problem with blend-ability.Sakura convertible lip and cheek color

As for the convertible color, I love the color, it's a cool toned bright pink, but on the cheeks it gives a nice flush, I like to wear only on the apples of my cheeks and top it off with a matter powder blush and it gives me perfect doll-like cheeks. I don't like it on my lips because it is not as moisturizing as other lipglosses.

Overall I recommend to check it out!.

The Monster Ball

For the people who might not know what the Monster Ball is... basically is a Lady Gaga show.
I went to one last week and it was F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C (yup in capitals).
If somehow I would have been able to travel 3 years ago, and tell myself that I was going to go to one of her shows I would have laugh so hard because I hated her back then. The thing is that I hated her Poker Face song, I thought it sounded too robotic, too autoned, and she was just too eccentric for my taste.
As she went on becoming more famous, I stated to like her, I admiring her for using her fame as means to spreading important messages such as charity, following your dreams regardless of what people tell you, bullying, and trying to revoke "don't ask don't tell" (which i think is the most ridiculous thing ever), and spreading love throughout the world.
To me, this was my first Monster Ball, despite she had already been in town 3 times. First time she was here it was when I disliked her, then the 2nd time I wanted to go for my birthday, but tickets completely sold out. So this time was THE chance.
Her show is beyond amazing worth every penny! They are very hard to get because I bought my tickets on October for a show on March and the GA section sold out in a matter of 2 days.

She sang live the entire time, and changed outfits with almost every song. They changed the stage four times. Here are the songs she sang in the same order.

Dance in the Dark, Glittler and Grease, Just Dance, Beautiful Dirty Rich, The Fame, Love Game, Boys Boys Boys, Money Honey, Telephone, Born this Way (acoustic), You and I, So Happy I could Die, Monster, Teeth, Alejandro, Poker Face, Paparazzi, Bad Romance, and Born this Way.

I love the opening of the show... it gives me a strange feeling... like adrenaline running throwout my body (literally). I did recorded this one

Here are some photos of the show... my new camera takes so much better pictures than the old one. ( as you can see i was very close!) enjoy!
