Tagged and Updates

Sorry I haven't been updating recently.
I actually haven't been doing my makeup or my nails "/
I also forgot to bring my laptop charger home!  I'm pretty sad about that but my friend lent me a charger.

Miss Banny tagged me in a post so I'm going to do it haha.
But beware, I don't have much time before my laptop will die so I don't think I can tag everyone that I would tag.  I also hate tagging people in these things for some reason.
Here we go.

Rules that must be posted (rules are meant to be broken)

Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.
No tag backs.
No stuff in the tagging section about 'you are tagged if you are reading this.' You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

1. Even though I'm a girly girl, majority of my friends are male.
2. I love to watch House (New Years marathon? Heck yes!)

5. If your could describe yourself in one word what would it be and why?
Dense.  Well, last night, my friends and I had all the same sodas that were open because we were playing a game.  I asked if I could have a certain soda because it was a little more full than the others and then one of my friends tells me he spit in it.  I said something along the lines of: but it's more full than all the other ones!  Everyone laughed at me and I didn't understand why.  It was embarrassing!

Collective Haul and Review

I came home to a lot of packages :3
Most of the things were gifts but these are the things I got for myself.

From Pretty and Cute:
Sana New Born Eyebrow Mascara and Pencil in Light Brown
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
Lioele Carry Me Blusher in Cutie Peach
Skin79 Diamond Perfect Cover BB Concealer

From Sephora:
A free Tokidoki bag
Tokidoki Gelato Lip Balm Stain in Pink Martini
Tokidoki Cromatico Eyeshadow Palette in Mozzarella

From Milani:
Eye Tech Liquid Liner in Black
Eyeliner Pencil in True Black

From Amazon:
Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler
Double Eyelid Tape

From Missha:
M Signature Radiance Two Way Pact in Chic Beige

Onto the review!  I'll be reviewing K-palette's Real Lasting Eyeliner
In the box, it came with an eyelashes :3

Out of the box

Just the eyeliner

The tip

Three different sized lines. You can make lines extremely thin!

After rubbing 20 times

After running it under water for 10 seconds

After rubbing it with the water 20 times

My take:
This eyeliner is pretty good.  The application is the best I've ever tried.  The tip is so sharp but it is very soft.  The lines I made were really thin.  That's also a bad point for me because I like to make thicker lines.  The felt tip is amazing!  This is the best felt tip liner I tried.  It makes application so easy, like you're drawing with a pen :3  The color is fairly black.  You need to go over it a couple times to get it to be a true black.  The staying power is better than most eyeliners.  It really is waterproof but it does not last if you rub it while it is wet.  It does not smudge at all and it is not flaky.  It is not one of those eyeliners than when you continuously go over the line, the color rubs off.  I really like this eyeliner!

Great application, you can make the tiniest lines
Smudge proof
Long lasting
Easy to control felt tip

Comes off if you rub it after wetting it
Expensive ($16 from Pretty and Cute)
Hard to find
Can't make thick lines

Overall rating: 4.5/5  I love this eyeliner.  It makes application fast and easy :3  This is a great eyeliner for a beginner!

Anemic, flight pushed back

I've been extremely fatigued and lethargic lately and I'm pretty sure it's because I'm anemic.
I've been extremely anemic a few years ago.  So I know what it feels/looks like to be anemic.
(rapid heart rate, fatigue, lethargy, dizziness, light headedness, pale skin, pale tongue, pale eyes)
(okay pale eyes sounds weird but you know when you do make that silly face where you pull your eyes down and expose that reddish part? lol)

So since I have nothing to really blog about, I will tell you about my adventure with anemia.

Here is a chart of normal range of Hemoglobin levels
Okay so since it happened a few years ago, I was a child.  My Hemoglobin is supposed to be 11-13gm/dl.
When I went to the hospital I was at 6.3gm/dl.
They even wanted to give me an emergency blood transfusion as soon as they received the test results.
There was actually one lady (I think she was the specialist) that said I should just stay in the hospital and take Iron supplements.  My primary doctor lady (who was in charge of me at the hospital) did not like this idea (but I did not like her) so I asked if I could just do the supplements (esp since a transfusion scared the crap out of me)
I had to do a chest xray since I was anemic for so long they thought my heart enlarged (I had PE every other day and we had to run a lot so it was very straining on my heart)
If my heart did enlarge, there was a high chance of my heart failing.
Of course, everything was fine :3 The supplements worked and now I'm here!

So being anemic really sucks.  Can you imagine walking up one flight of stairs and you're feeling so tired that you want to faint?  It's terrible.  I know there are a lot of things out there that feel terrible but I think that feeling weak is one of the worst feelings.  I really feel so helpless.  I can't stand not being able to do things for myself.

Other news, I had to delay my flight until tonight because they would not let my doggie on the plane.  They told me that I'm being cruel to her by putting her in a bag that she cannot stand up in.  Now, they told me to bring her out to try to see if she will fit in another kennel, and she refused to come out of the bag.  I forcefully carried her out and then she ran back into the bag.  I could see it being animal cruelty if she jumped out of the bag at the very second that she could, but she wanted to go back in!  I don't feel like that's animal cruelty.  Now these next few statements are going to be kind of vulgar but I thought it was a fitting analogy.  Please skip to the next paragraph if you are easily offended.  Okay okay so is it domestic violence if your husband/wife likes to get spanked during sexual intercourse?  No right? (I'm sorry if any of you do think that it would be domestic violence but I really don't feel like it would be)  I mean if they like it, I don't really see how it could be domestic violence.  If a neighbor called the police saying that he seen the man next door spank his wife during intercourse, I feel like the police would laugh.  Yeah, I'm not sure how that neighbor would be seeing this, but if it happened... lol.  So how could it be animal cruelty if my dog likes to be in the bag?  I honestly feel like it was out of their place to tell me that I was being cruel to my dog.  She wasn't crying to come out, and she didn't jump out at the very moment I opened the bag.  (I'm sorry if anyone thinks that I'm being cruel to my dog for putting her in a bag that she likes and feels safe in)

Okay sorry about my little rant about the airline people.  I actually had to go out and buy a kennel that she can stand up in and she has to go in the luggage compartment.  I'm really scared for her because she has a pretty severe case of separation anxiety.  She can't stand to be away from me and on top of that, she gets panic attacks when she's in a new environment (she really starts to hyperventilate and shiver non-stop).  She will have to go in the luggage compartment all by herself.  I hope she will be okay.  I'm so afraid that they won't secure her in well and she will be sliding all over the place.  I really hope she doesn't have a severe panic attack.  I wanted to see if I could possibly get tranquilizers for her but I couldn't.  It is hard to get a vet appointment so last minute.

Thank you for reading this super long post about stuff that doesn't matter to you :3
You guys are the best haha!

Finals are over, flight, sick?

It's 9:22am here in Hawaii and I finished my last final this morning.  
I came home at about 9:00am and as soon as I stepped in the door, I threw up ):
I'm not sure why.  I was feeling fine until I came home.
Since finals are over, I will be flying back home to Oahu tonight with my doggie (who may be too large to be allowed on the plane -_-')
Hopefully I'll be able to post a bit more but I'm going to be quite busy with Christmas shopping and spending time with family.
My giveaway ends next week saturday :D
I  can't wait to  go home and see the prizes in the flesh haha.
I bought so much stuff on black friday and cyber monday that I don't remember what I purchased.
It will be a nice surprise (: My lenses I ordered from LensVillage should be arriving soon.
I hope that goes well.  I also need to make an updated review on their service.
If you follow me on Twitter, you will know that they have contacted me about their bad service and made some changes to their website so customers will be more satisfied with their service.
They also offered me a free lens with no strings attached.  We will see how that goes though.
I'll probably update tonight with a haul post if I have the time :3
Until then, please enjoy these photos:
(random guy sticking out his arm lol)
A kitty.  He looks like he wants to run away!

Alrighty.  That's all for now :3
Thank you for reading about my boring life ^^

FOTD and Revlon Lip Butters Review

(Please ignore my large forehead lol)
Okay okay this is totally vain and I'm not usually this vain but...
OMG look at my eyelashes!  Haha they look so nice today :3
I'm not wearing falsies ^^
Sorry for that extremely vain moment.

I received a sample of the Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream from Pretty and Cute so I'm going to do  a small review on this.  I'm wearing this BB cream in my photo.
I actually dislike this BB Cream because it really highlights my dry skin.  Most BB Creams I have tried kind of moisturize my skin and leave it dewy.  This one had a matte finish.  I think this BB Cream would be great for people with oily skin.  Since my skin is normal to dry, I didn't care for this one.  I do like that the color matches my skin tone perfectly but I normally wear BB Creams that are lighter than my skin color because I want to be lighter :P and my face is also darker than my neck for some reason.


Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream
Sephora Mattifying Foundation in Warm Fair

I don't know what the eyeshadow palette is called but I used the Tokidoki quad that came with Adios.   I used the matte black shade
elf Cream Eyeliner in Black
Dolly Wink Volume Mascara
Maybelline NY Lash Discovery Mascara

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters in Cotton Candy

Okay so onto the review:
I bought Lollipop (left) and Cotton Candy (right)

Swatches: Cotton Candy (top), Lollipop (bottom)

Cotton Candy
(sorry for blurry photos)

My take:
These Lip Butters are fairly moisturizing.  It is nothing like a lip balm though.  My lips felt dry after about half an hour so I had to keep reapplying it.  That isn't much of a problem to me since I'm constantly reapplying my lip balm to make sure my lips don't get dry.  I HATE the lollipop shade.  It is like a hot pink with a blue tone to it.  I do not like it at all.  I do love the Cotton Candy Shade. 

Comes in a lot of different  shades
Good price
Good Availability
True to color

Neither the color or the moisturizing effect is long  lasting
(Color fades when you eat or drink and if you don't eat or drink, it fades in about an hour to two hours)
(moisturizing effect faded in about half an hour)

Rating: 4/5 
I really like these.  If they were more moisturizing, they would be perfect.

I definitely would buy these again.  I want to get more colors :3

50th Post: e.motion in motion, random photos

I'm so behind on posting since I'm studying for finals.  I also have ADD so I'm always so distracted by things.  I was studying for my big Chemistry final and then my dog was doing something cute and I forgot what I was doing and went on YouTube.
Fail ):

I also have exciting news.  Well, it's exciting to me!
Erynn from e.motion in motion began blogging again :3
She was the second blogger I discovered (the first was Eki) and she has been one of my favorites!
Her posts are always super detailed and honest with a lot of photos ^^
She's also from Hawaii like me :D
I also seen that she began following me.  I feel so special ^^

My nails are beginning to look unhealthy so no new NOTDs until they heal (I might do designs on these false nails I bought awhile ago if I have the time).
I'm leaving to go back to Oahu on December 15 (next thursday), which happens to be the day of my last final.
I need to study like crazy for my Biology exam.
I'l try to post as much as I can (probably when I get distracted).

So I'm leaving you all with these photos:
Hapuna Prince Hotel view :3 (Big Island of Hawaii)

This one is the view from a hike called pill boxes. (Kailua, Oahu)

Different view from Pill boxes

This one is blurry ): But this is another view.

And this one is my puppy Maci :3 I think she was about 3.5 months old.  (Now she's 6 months)
I'm going to give her a bath now haha!

Okay thank you for reading this post filled with nonsense!

Wet 'n' Wild Eyeshadow Review

I recently bought this eyeshadow because I read good reviews on it and I had a coupon for a dollar off so I only paid $2!  Here's the packaging.

The eyeshadows themselves.


My take:
I was extremely disappointed with the black eyeshadow.  If you can tell, in the packaging, it's really glittery and pretty.  When I swatched it, there was hardly any glitter at all.  I really only bought this palette because the black one was so pretty!  I also do not think they blend as well as they should.  The black one especially was kind of choppy.  I had to spend extra time blending it.  The pink shade glided on perfectly and it blended beautifully.  I actually do not care for the silver shade as a color for my brow bone like it advises.  I like to give my brow bone a subtle highlight.  This color is very opaque so it isn't subtle at all.


The black one wasn't glittery as it is in the packaging
The black one didn't blend well
The silver one is a bit too opaque as a brow bone color for my taste

Overall I'd give it a 3/5.  I probably wouldn't repurchase the shimmery colors.  I would maybe purchase the matte shades.

Here's an FOTD using this palette
I wasn't very photogenic today lol!  (This look is actually doubling as the challenge look)
That hot pink shade is very unflattering on me ):

I used:

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream #13
Sephora Mattifying Foundation in Warm Fair
elf Blush in Innocence

Wet 'n' Wild eyeshadow palette in Spoiled Brat
Milani Infinite Liquid Eyeliner
Maybelline NY Lash Discovery Mascara

Revlon Lip Butters in Cotton Candy


First, here is the napkin that inspired my last NOTD.
Isn't it adorable?!

This is my current nails!
I've been doing my nails a lot recently.  I really like to do my nails now that I'm getting better at it.
I feel like my control got much better than when I posted my first NOTD.
I think this is the best quality work I have done yet.  I love Totoro and thought it would be adorable to do a Totoro Christmas theme since I've never seen anything like it :3

I have a final tomorrow so it's going to be crazy studying all day!
