Experimenting with Falsies!

Sephora palette, Elf Natural Lashes, several Rimmel shadows 
I couldn't get the corner right - yikes!
Crappy photo, but look at how long these are!

 So after I randomly bought two lashes from ELF Cosmetics, I decided to finally experiment with them. Now trust me, the eye look in itself took 5 minutes - but the lash application took like 10 minutes on one eye. :O

I do need to use Duo Lash Glue, but for now the ELF glue will just have to do. I really feel like this is appropriate for prom, homecoming, or any night out... I'm really loving blue smokey eyes!

Trend: Color Blocking on the Eyes

Tara Tarantino's 'Tokyo Hardcore' on the lid
This is certainly a trend for the brave, but a trend that's both bright and fun. You might have seen this trend rocking the spring fashion shows on clothes, but now it's rocking on the eyes after celebrities like Katy Perry have been seen rocking two different shades on the eyes. It's great to go with complimentary colors, like green and purple, or maybe even orange and blue. 
Tara Tarantino's 'Victorian Punk' on the lid
What do you guys think of this trend? Is it hit or miss? Comment below! :)

Benefit Stay Put Set

Front side packaging
A couple weeks ago I finally managed to buy this little set from Benefit that incluses a mini 'Stay Don't Stray' primer, a mini 'Erase Paste' concealer, and a mini creaseless shadow in 'Rsvp.' And the best part besides the oh-so cute packaging is that it's only ten dollars. The concealer will last you forever and a year, well at least for me because you need the tinest amount and being a concealer-holic I can totally reassure you that this covers a lot. The primer is great as well, but I'm trying to not use it up because it's so tiny! It also works as a concealer primer. The creaseless shadow is really nice as well.
Back side
The packaging is so adorable, they're tiny!

Comes in 02 medium, salmon toned (great for undereyes!)
RSVP - a great neutral sparkly base/shadow
This was overall a great buy if you're new to Benefit products, I'm hoping Benefit comes out with more of these mini packs!

I've joined blogspot! I've decided after all this time that I should have a blog instead of just my luuux, where I can get feedback and I can post personal things too. I still have my tumblr - but I felt that my blog here will allow me to make full posts easier but also allow me to write life related posts. Follow me if you'd like :)
