I am a beauty blogger and I don't have or want ...

1. I don't own any of the Naked Palettes and I am totally ok with it. I know people love them, but they are just way too shimmery for my taste. I really tried to like them due to their hypes, but every time I swatch, I can't get over the shimmer.

2. I don't own the Ikea Alex makeup storage drawers. I really do love how they look. I think they are perfect for collectors. I personally try to be a "buy what you need" person, so I don't see the need for Alex drawers at the moment. 

3. I don't own any Nars blushes or anything else from the brand for that matter. I don't know why, I just have this thing against overly hyped brands and products. Once, specially makeup gets this cult status, I just have this natural tendency to avoid them. I would not say I would never purchase anything from Nars, because I might...

4. I never wish I could blog for full time, because it would not be very fulfilling profession for me.  As a hobby, I absolutely love it and would continue to blog in the future. So I don't blog for PR samples, sponsored posts or anything like that unless I really like the product, because I am not planning on making living from blogging.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows Review

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows are known to be affordable alternatives for Georgia Armani Eyes To Kill cream eyeshadows. I personally never used the Georgia Armani ones, but based on my research Maybelline Color Tattoos come very close to them without the hefty price.

I have it in the Bad To The Bronze and Inked in Pink. I absolutely love them for a few reasons. They are just shimmery enough for daily use as all over color for my lid. They stay put all day without primer on my oily and hooded lids. Also, I use them as base and primer as well. 

Bad To the Bronze is very light brown when it is shear, and a beautiful bronze when you get the full pigmentation. Inked in Pink is light pink color that is just beautiful. I lusted over Urban Decay Naked 3, but after buying this, I was over the Naked 3, because Inked in Pink just provided me the color I was looking for. So if you are looking for care free everyday shadow for you eyes, you should definitely check them out.

Long Blazer Coat

Bag: Coach // Coat: similar // Shoes: similar // 
I don't really have much to say today. I have a test on wednesday and my last two weeks felt like it was a month. Fridays don't feel like fridays anymore, and weekends don't make much of a difference besides being able to sleep in a little bit. I think my life is going to be like this for a while.

I am just so happy that I can at least do some posts, but replying to comments and catching up with social media have been difficult. Please do understand that I am not ignoring you if I don't keep in touch. I need to get organized more so I have some dedicated time to blogging, which is going to be more sustainable in the long run with my busy schedule. 

Briefly about the outfit, shoes and the blazer are my mom's donation to me, hence I have no idea where they are from. I wore them when I went shopping the other day. Did not find anything, which was probably a good thing. Anyways, any organization tips for busy life is greatly appreciated in the comment section for real!

Wet and Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Wine Room Review

Wet and Wild eyeshadows are really popular and almost have the cult status, but they did not really work out for me (reviewed here). However, I did not give up on the brand. So I tried Wine Room from their Mega Last Lip Color range. It was little over 2 bucks, so I thought it was a good way to try out new colors without spending a fortune. 

Wine Room is beautiful everyday rose pink that is almost Chanelisk (is it a word?). My first thought was to bring this color with me everywhere to find the exact same color from Dior or Chanel lipsticks, because I thought it is probably going to have better formula. But to my surprise, I was blown away with its texture, finish, and lasting power for its 2 dollar price.

I applies completely matte with almost creamy texture, and lasts for 3-4hrs with some fading towards the end. It does not completely smudge off with drinks. Really does not it sound like any other lipstick you pay more than 2 bucks for? My only complaint is that it is not creamy enough, but for matter finish, I doubt I will be able to find something creamy and completely matte at the same time. 

Would I recommend it? Seriously why not, it is a cost of two snickers bar at most. And I am pretty sure you will use it at least a few times until you are bored if you are into more high end beauty products. If you don't want to spend ton of money on lipsticks, then seriously go for it!
