Monday Questionnaire: Sept. 23, 2013

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you're all doing okay! I was pretty busy today running errands and cramming for my bio exam (which I totally pass!). Let's get started with questions shall we?

1. How dedicated are you to your skincare regimen?
Very! I'm only 20 but I really want to take good care of my skin.

2. How often do you go to bed without removing your makeup?
Rarely. I do, however, have those moments where I'm just plain tired and want to go straight to bed.

3. What’s your favorite beauty ritual?
Probably putting on foundation weirdly enough. I like seeing my skin go from dull and acne scarred skin to an even, radiant skin tone.

4. How would you describe your style: easy, experimental or excessive?
Super easy!

5. If you color your hair, how old were you when you first started?
I've never colored my hair. Although some people do since my hair is jet black naturally.

6. When it comes to makeup, what’s your biggest gripe?
Blending out eyeshadow! I feel like it takes forever to get that perfect blended eye look.

7. If you had to narrow down your entire fall wardrobe to a single fall uniform, what would it look like?
Dark blue skinny jeans, a cream colored shirt, my green cargo jacket and black combat boots.

8. What’s your go-to purse this fall?
My Steve Madden black satchel.

9. What’s your biggest skincare gripe?
Waiting for results haha! I'm so impatient.

10. What was the highlight of your weekend?
I went to a Fall Out Boy concert on Friday and it was THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE! They are my favorite band and I had a good view of them: literally five feet away from the stage! I'll post some pictures below!

How was your weekend? Hope it was awesome like mine! Until next time!

***here are a few pictures from the Fall Out Boy concert!

Twenty One Pilots was the opening band and they were amazing! I've never heard of them until then and I'm thinking of buying their album! I totally recommend checking them out!

Panic! at the Disco was next and I was so thrilled! I love their music! Brendon Urie was unreal!

Fall Out Boy came on and I was seriously losing my mind! Getting the chance to see my favorite musicians up close and live was definitely one of the best moments of my life! These guys mean everything to me and I'll always love them!

It's that time of the year..... Pumpkin Spice Lattes!

Happy Monday everyone! I finally had the chance to go to Starbucks today and ordered my first PSL of the year! Yum! I can't wait for sweater weather! 

1. Is your desk neat or messy?
Well, I don't have a desk but if I did, it would be neat.

2. One fun thing you did over the weekend?
I was sick all weekend. Not fun!

3. What book(s) are you reading?
I just started reading Storm Front by Richard Castle. So far I'm loving it!

4. Something you keep meaning to do but don’t?
Clean my room.

Wake up at 8, put my contacts on, brush teeth, check my phone, shower, breakfast, head to school or work.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush, MAC 217 and the ELF $1 Eyeshadow Brush

Always use an eyeshadow primer!

10. Are you wearing any polish on your toes, and if you are, what shade?
Yep! It's My Personal Serpent from Sephora by OPI. Love this color!

Until next time!

Maybelline Fall 2013 Collection Haul: Review + Swatches!

Hey everyone! Today I'm here to show you all the items I bought from Maybelline's new Fall 2013 Collection! I have been stalking stores around me everywhere and I finally found new, untouched products! I'm sort of disappointed that there were no new Color Tattoos this year but I have so many to use up! Anyway, let's see what I got!

Let's start off with the lip products! There are a lot of purple lip products in this collection and I really wanted to try them out! Here's the lipsticks I got!

From left to right: Fuchsia Fierce, Violet Intrigue, Midnight Plum

I have reviewed all of my Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks here and these lipsticks feel exactly like the ones I own! I'm especially excited to wear Violet Intrigue more often this fall! I don't own any colors like these so I'm thrilled to wear them frequently! 

From left to right: Purple Royale, Lavender Lavish, Raspberry Ablaze, Berry Brilliance

I have actually never tried these lip glosses before so I decide to get most of the glosses. I might go back to the store to get the other two because I love these lip glosses! I have worn all of the glosses this past week and it might just be my new favorite lip gloss formula! They feel incredibly smooth and creamy on my lips, last a fairly long time (3-4 hours without eating anything greasy), and I love the doe foot applicator! If you want just a couple things from this collection, check out the lip glosses! They are amazing!

Swatches from left to right: Violet Femmes quad, Fall Temptation quad

I own a couple Eye Studio quads from their permanent line I have to say that these weren't really the best. They weren't as pigmented and long lasting as the permanent ones I own. I still like them but the pigmentation could be better in these two quads.

Overall, I'm really impressed with the products I got from this collection! The lip products are definitely the star of the entire collection! Have any of you gotten anything from this collection? Let me know!

Until next time!
