CONTEST CLOSED Important Contest Update

I'm 4 followers away from 50, but there is only 23 entries to my contest. It's kind of a bummer to me. The prices aren't bad I think, and I would like to get more entries before getting those out. I think I might only give an eye shadow now, and wait for the shadow and lipstick when I get to a little more followers. I want to know if you think it is fair ( n.b.: All of the entries on the contest post will be valid for the eye shadow give away still, if it is what happen )

Let me know what you think in the comments, it's important!

Mascara Fun : Hard Candy 1000 Lashes


Today I went to Wal-Mart and of course walked in the make up isle... AND GUESS WHAT I FOUND!? Hard Candy! I know it's been out in the United States for ever, but it's a premiere here!

The first thing I got are these babies:
As you can see, these are the Hard Candy 1000 Lashes Fiberized Lash weave mascara in Heartthrob Pink and Divine Purple.
Heartthrob Pink
Divine Purple
So yeah. Since I had them BOTH on right after I got them and I managed to cry with them on, I think I can do a review. First I'll let you know what the packaging claims.
-'' Fiberized Lash weave mascara '' 
-'' Infuse with volume building fibers that thicken and lengthen lashes ''
-'' We love our animal friends. We don't test our product on them ''
Now onto the pros and cons

Pros :
-It is fun to have colored mascara, it spices up any look
-They're available in many many colors, including traditionals like black and brown
-They're cheap and easy to find ( is there a place in the world without a Wal-Mart invasion?? )
-They stayed up pretty good when I cried
-The fiber in it really lenghten my lashes ( pictures a little further )
-They hold my curl ( hold, not magically create one, I need to curl my lashes before applying )
-They don't test on animals, always a must!
-Not clumpy
Cons :
-It doesn't thicken that much
-You need to build it up a little for it to show up perfectly
-Can be hard to pull off
-The type of brush ( the more natural bristle kind ) is not my type really...
-Product builds up at the tip of the wand, which can be irritating

Quality : 4/5
For the price ( around 6 $ ) I can't complain. It does pretty much what it claims, and it shows up  
Packaging : 5/5
Come on. It's Hard Candy. They're known for their pretty darn cute packaging with details all over!

Price : 5/5
Cheap and works! Can't asked for more. 

Total : 14/15
Looking for a good colored mascara under 10 $ Go for it! :)

Here are the '' swatch '' pictures

BOLD looks!

Hello Again!

I did those two looks yesterday and today, only to play with my make up.. I do preffer the first one a lot, the second one isn't being what I wanted it to be.


 So yeah... This is what I do when I'm bored.. The first look took nearly 5 h to be complete ( INSANE ) and the second not even 2. I really like the lips on the second one tho , they're pretty for fall :)

 I don't remember EVERY thing I used, but it's mainly my coastal scent 88 color palette for the first one, and a mix of M.A.C. and Urban Decay for the second for the shadows.

 I hope you like them :)

Beauty Tag ! :D ( Tagged by FunnyFace Beauty )

Hello :)

I was tagged by the sweet Alicia from FunnyFace Beauty today to do this simple but fun tag! I really don't have people to tag since I don't really ''talk'' with other blogger yet, Alicia being my first real contact in the lovely beauty community ( Thank you by the way :D). So you can do this tag if you want, and leave your blog down here for me to see it ! 

Here I go :
What's your favorite make up look? 
If we talk about the one that I wear the most, it would be the simple neutral eye, with a light lid color, a light brown in the crease and a well highlighted browbone with a pop one bright color on the lower lash line. It could be blue, green, purple or really anything, I love the effect it gives. If we talk about my favorite one to take my time and do, it would be a sexy smokey eye ( not just black ) with a nude lip and a close to flawless face ( that's hard to do with my rebel teen skin ).

Do you have a beauty vice? 
Oh, eye shadows. It's the make up product I wear and enjoy the most :) I like to buy a ton of them, having the different colors and be creative with them.. L.O.V.E. It's surely the first ( exept for liner and mascara ) beauty item that I used. 

What part of your body do you love? 
My eyes. I love their almond shape and the color of them, which is a light brown with green and gold reflects. I also like to put make up around them to accentuate them more :) I hate most parts of my body except for them.

Who is your beauty icon? 
I have to have a similar answer to Alicia here. I like the Kardashians and Bobbi Brown ( I recently bought a book from her.. Sooo great :) ). I also like some pretty beauty gurus.. To mention one, I can't get enough of Tiffany D eye lashes and liner. It always look great!

What beauty product makes you feel instantly good?
Liquid or gel liner on my top lash line with a wing and mascara. I feel uncomfortable not wearing AT LEAST those to items. I also love to put lipbalm on when my lips feel awful, it makes me feel good. :)

How do you look after your skin? 
Being young, I'm having a lot of issues with my skin and hormones and all those stuff. I usually exfoliate once a week with the St. Ives Apricot Scrub, I wash my face daily with Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser and Clean and Clear Morning Burst Shine Control Facial Cleanser and I try to moisturize, but it makes my skin feel all greasy.. And if I don't, my skin become all dry. Ahh, the joy of untamed skin :)

What is your signature scent?
I only have body splashes at this moments.. I'm young and poor :) If  had to pick one, it would be the Dove Go Fresh body mist in Revive, which is the pomagrnate and lemon verbena one. It is my everyday one.

What are your hair care secrets?
Fast like that I would say washing them and letting them dry naturally. I don't really use products in them other than shampoo and conditionner from the drugstore ( I KNOW :O ). They are naturally full of volume and curly. :)

How do you pamper yourself?
It might sound like older than my age to say this, but sitting in a hot bath full of lush goodness with a good book and my iPod ( don't worry, I have one of those bath wooden shelf thingy that I put my iPod and book on.. :D ). Just after I like to do a face mask again, with the book and the music and stay in my jammies all day long :)

What is your beauty pet peeve?
Oh my god. I have a lot of those, you should ask my boyfriend.. When we are walking around downt
own I can't help it.. I need to say every beauty crime that we pass by ( not to the actual people, to him, I'm not mean enough to say such things to strangers. To a friend I would tho, I don't want them to look like clowns! ). There's the unmatching foundation, the overdone blush, the half-way eyeliner ( not from middle-out .. from in to middle.. that grosses me out ), the dark lipliner around the lips topped with gloss, the creasing unblended uneven shadow, the over botoxed face, the weird bronzer.. and I can go on and on forever :) ( I'm not perfect, I know.. but sometimes it seems like people are giving all of themselves to look bad.. )

What would your desert island must haves be?
If I take the question like Alicia , it would be my beauty must. I would definatly have a good face sunscreen ( I went to the Six Flags park sunday, my face is awefully sunburned, it hurts and now breakout like crazy ), then waterproof mascara, eyeliner, lip balm and.. a bathing suit :)

Finally, do you have a beauty philosophy?
I like this one : '' Good nature will always supply the absence of beauty; but beauty cannot supply the absence of good nature. '' It is so true. There not much things worst than a beautiful bitch. I would rather be with a less pretty but oh so nice girl than the bitchy pretty princess. 

That's all guys! And again, thanks to Alicia who tagged me ! :)

Candles By Victoria : First Experience.

So yeah.. I got my Candles by Victoria scent shots quite some time ago, but I really wanted to try them out before telling you anything about them :) I got the 8 scent shot sampler pack in the bakery scent, plus the Dr. Pepper one and the Bath time with Pooh one.

Seriously, I LOVE those. They are fully scented, and they melt like a dream. ( I also bought the electric tart warmer, the black one if you are interested :D )

( You can get some candles by victoria from , and you can also check out her youtube channel here )

So I'll show you them one by one, telling you what I think about each!

Pumpkin Pie Spice.
I have to admit that I don't really know what pumpkin smells like, but this baby surely smells like spices. It reminds me of the little cinnamons hearts that are available around valentine's day plus another scent that I can't put my nose on.. That might be the pumpkin part :)

Wildberry Scone.
Pure yumminess. I can smell the berry and the bakery dough scent out of it. It's surely something that I'm happy to have for fall since it is a really comforting kitchen scent.

Dr. Pepper.
I'm not impressed with this one. It does smell like cherry spicy cola, but nothing dead on Dr. Peppery. I still like it, but not one of my favorites.

Buttery Caramel.
Let's be honnest here, since this little story have an happy end. When I first smelled it, I tought of pee... The cold throw of it is disgusting to me. I was disapointed. But then, I decided to burn it, taking the chance. That's when the magic happened! It started smelling like a graham cracker crust with melted butter plus a little caramel on it. Yum :)

Log Cabin.
According to Victoria, this one is suppose to smell like pancakes covered by maple syrup. I can smell both actually, the pancake scent being overpowered by the maple syrup one. Still a great one :)

Bath time with Pooh.
I looove this! It really smells like the product it's duping. Fresh flowery honey scent that all my family likes :)

Buttercream Crunch.
This one I like. It smells just like when my mom cooks cake it the kitchen. It truely smell like butter and cream. I can get the maple syrup and the vanilla that Victoria discribes, but none of the coconut and cocoa is coming to my nose actually.

Country Fair Funnel Cake.
I actually don't know what this type of food is so I can't say if it's right or wrong, but it smells like something I would like to eat! It's syrupy and buttery, plus a little something that I don't know.

Butter Rum Crunch.
It does smell like the name says. Buttery dessert scent and a subtle note of rum added. ( I have never drink rum before, but to know the smell of it I did opened a bottle in the kitchen, my mom was really looking wierd at me .. )

It does stand to what Victoria put on her website. Cookie sugary dough and lots of spices! I'm not a fan, but it still smells good :)

Simply Delicious.
This is one of the House Blend Frangrances. According to Victoria, it includes pears, vanilla, rich cream, butter and brown sugar. I can smell every notes except for the pear in the cold throw of this, kind of sadly  ( I love pears :) ). It's is still a good one, and the only one that I haven't burned yet.

That's all actually! I'm really pleased with those scent shot and I want to get more of them :) I might try some of the fruity scent, plus a couple perfume and more bakery. I can't wait!

Thanks for reading! 

P.s.: Have you ever bought some candles from Victoria? If so, which is your favorite? :)
