KISS InstaWave

I recently received this KISS InstaWave curler to try from  I enjoy trying out new curling iron and especially this KISS Instawave it helps you curl your hair faster than ever.  I tested it out and I have to say that the curls last longer.  At times my hair gets pretty stubborn, no matter how I curled my hair, my curls do not stay that longAfter using the Instawave my curls lasted up to 2 days straight.  I had a great time creating pretty curls and I'm getting excited to play with my hair more since the holidays are coming.  At first I wasn't used of the InstaWave curling my hair for me by simply holding the left and right dial, but this KISS Instawave curler is amazing how fast you can create versatile types of curls. 

Here's the feature of what KISS InstaWave does: 
  • KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful curls
  • Easy for anyone to use, from any angle, with any hand
  • Features a Curl Dial with left/right curl directions
  • Automatically shuts off after 90 minutes
  • 2 heat settings with a low/high switch with maximum temperature of 420
Instructions of using this KISS InstaWave is easily as follow: 
  1. Hold InstaWave vertically
  2. Simply place section of hair on the InstaWave curling rod
  3. Touch the Curl Dial either left or right, and the InstaWave instantly and automatically catches and curls the hair
  4. Hold for 5-10 seconds, hold longer for tighter curls and less for beachy waves
  5. Pull the InstaWave down vertically, letting hair out
Tip: Switch between curling right and curling left to create the most natural looking curls

Autographed Make-up by ONE DIRECTION Giveaway

The One Direction “limited edition” makeup line, advertised as “bold, mischievous, vivid” and “everything you need” is an ensemble of slightly better-than drugstore cosmetics is now available at Macy's. The Up All Night collection includes a 4+1 eye shadow palate, a black volumizing mascara, an aqua metallic nail varnish, a glittery pink lip gloss, a crème pink lipstick, a decorator stencil set, and a navy eye pencil/ body crayon. This makeup line was inspired by One Direction’s albums, Midnight Memories, Take Me Home, and Up All Night. Therefore, each product is named after a song from the chart topping albums. The collection is in an attractive and modern collectable tin box featuring the members of the band and looks that could be created with the products. 

4+1 Eye Shadow Palette 
The eye shadow palate includes four colors, silver- “Gotta Be You,” soft pink- “More Than This,” turquoise shimmer- “Save You Tonight,” and royal blue- “Another World.” It also includes a sapphire glitter named after One Direction’s bestselling album, Up All Night. All of the colors were very pigmented and sensitive to the skin. However, the glitter “crème” was short lasting and had an odd, sticky texture.

Stand Up” Navy Eye Pencil/ Body Crayon and “Little Black Dress” Mascara
This eye pencil/ body crayon has multi-functions; it can be used as liner, shadow, or body art. Overall, it glides on smoothly and is pigment-rich. The “Little Black Dress” Mascara was [fairly] volumizing as advertised and went on evenly.

 “I Should Have Kissed You” Lipstick and “Taken” Lip-gloss
Both of these pigments were uneasy to the eye. The “I Should Have Kissed You” lipstick was not the as- advertised bubble gum, but a chalky, unattractive, neon pink. It also did not apply evenly, emphasizing blemishes and imperfections. The “Taken” Lip-gloss surely took me away when I first applied it. It stuck like molasses and felt as if I had bubble gum stuck to my lips. On the contrary, it is highly pigmented and uniquely glows orange under UV lights, which was surprising and impressive. However, I do believe that the creators should have chosen a different color for both the normal gloss and the pigment when under UV light. Thankfully, it is a more doable color in the Midnight Memories collection.

Na Na Na” Nail VarnishThe “Na, Na, Na” nail varnish is a metallic turquoise featuring specs of golden dust. Although it has an attractive color and dried fairly quickly, the nail varnish fails to be highly pigmented unlike the rest of the collection. In order to have a somewhat presentable nail, you must apply at least four layers of varnish, which was a letdown.

Just Natural Organic Apricot Scrub

I recently got the opportunity to try this new organic line called Just Natural Organic Apricot Scrub.  I have tested this for almost a week and I have to say that I'm impressed by this scrub.  After cleansing my face each morning with this scrub my face feels fresh and clean.  I also love the hint of Apricot smell that lingers on my face and the scrub itself is soft and gentle to the touch.  I normally have dry skin and after testing this out for a week my face feels smoother and glowing.

Enjoying my Summer Days

Recently I'm enjoying my summer days. I'm learning to relax more and try not to get uptight on things.  I need to start focusing on being claimer and enjoy what's around me.  As for this summer on July 4th my family, friends and I went on a road trip.  This is my first year really gone out far to celebrate July 4th weekend and to see fireworks.  Typically we don't do much on July 4th, we just normally stay at home.

Here are some highlights of what I did during my road trip: 
I had so much fun and it was a nice mini getaway for once.  I hope that I get more opportunity to do more small road trips in the future.

My current cologne scent

Currently loving this Jo Malone Cologne that I recently got for my early birthday present.  I recently picked up peony and blush suede scent, it smells so good and flowery yet not too overpowering. Unfortunately I picked out the small size; I should have picked out the larger size.  I also like the fact that you can mix with other scents but I haven't find anything particular to mix it with yet.  I'm not a perfume person, but recently I really enjoy wearing perfume now.  After wearing it, it makes me happier and more lively now.  Is there a particular scents that you like to wear?

My Spring outfits

I'm trying to dress up more since the weather is getting nice and warmer now.  I recently enjoy shopping online and always find it therapeutic of looking online instead of doing actual shopping.  I don't have to bother with people shoving me at the store.  I picked some outfits from, pretty much 50% of my attires are from there.  I find their clothes are very unique and they have adorable patterns like the kitty and swan top that I picked up recently.  I received some compliments of the attires that I went out from time to time.  I can't wait to shop more and it always a wonderful excuse to shop there. 

What are some of your spring time essential attires that you enjoy to wear?

Current Loves

Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon - I'm currently enjoying using this to line my eyelids and waterline.  This gel eye crayon gives great intensity to the eyes, it's also waterproof, smudge proof and long lasting.  I like this so much that I had to get a back up for this.  I got this in shade Cocoa 48 - bronze with shimmer

Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Foundation -  I really like the fact that this foundation is sheer and provides great coverage throughout the day.  It gives me this nice dewy and glowy finish which is perfect for the Spring and Summer season.  No heavy coverage and provides SPF 18 sunscreen

Bobbi Brown Face Touch up Stick - I used this concealer to conceal my unwanted dark spot, dark circles and blemishes.  This concealer goes great with the Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Foundation that doesn't make you look cakey at all and blend in together very well.

Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Foundation

Sorry for my long hiatus; things has been hectic and busy on my side.  In this post I want to share what new foundation I'm currently using. I personally think spending more on foundations makes your look goes a long way. I recently picked up the Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Foundation and honestly I'm loving it a lot, it gives me a perfect and flawless finish and a lovely glow.  This foundation itself is very sheer but the coverage is very moisturizing and its long-lasting.  Additionally this foundation doesn't feel heavy at all and it's perfect for any weather conditions.  What I like about this is whenever I'm in a hurry this is a quick fix me up for the day.  In less then 5 minutes I will look totally fresh and presentable for work or any events that I attend to.

The descriptions on the Shiseido website indicates that this foundation:
cancels out the appearance of redness, blemishes and visible pores without concealing skin’s natural beauty. Skin looks fresh and glows with sheer perfection.
  • Oil-free
  • Long-lasting wear with all day hydration
  • Silky-smooth without shine or stickiness
Here's the final look using the Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Foundation

Top: Modcloth - Horsing Around Town Top
Bottom: Modcloth - Around the Corner Skirt

I've been using the foundation for several months now and definitely would restock this again when I'm out.
