Swatches: Sephora Lipgloss #15 (sale)

I was contemplating posting these swatches because this is the discontinued lipgloss at Sephora, but they are still online and some colors in the store. They are on sale right now for $4, which is more discounted than when I bought mine at $7! Either way, a really good deal for a really good lipgloss!

This is one of my go to lipglosses - they aren't sticky (including their newer formulated lipglosses as well), and it gives a nice natural wash of color all over the lips. This is typically what I wear to school or running errands something where I want a color on my lips, but not too much. I recommend these sephora lipglosses (older & newer), they're amazing!

Keeping up with...Jenn!

This blog is WAY more updated than my YouTube pretty much because I'm a busy girl. I have school, work, boyfriend, and inbetween all of that I rarely have time to relax and when I do I take full advantage of it. I'm trying to get better on making more time to record videos, edit, all that jazz but believe me if you make videos yourself you know there's a LOT of time that goes into making one video. Blogging for me is my passion and love and will always be! I also have the ability to update my blog from my phone which makes it a lot easier as well.

The uses for my blog:
-Mini Hauls
-Personal life
-twitpics (but better! because I have more than 140 characters to show you guys what I'm doign :D)
-and randomness

My blog I try to keep more beauty related because I know that's what everyone likes to read and that's what it'll mainly be. But I do like to throw in some fun personal posts here and there as well. As for my posts I do like to keep them short and sweet because I am no professional and I'm not trying to be. So my posts are based off of my personal usage and reactions to that product. I like to just show the swatch and put a short insert of my thoughts on the product. I really don't like sitting here reading for pages and pages of one lipstick and how well it works. If it works it works! If it doesn't it doesn't, simple as that. That's just my thought on blog posts you don't need a fancy explanation of a certain product.

So...how to updated with me:
1. Follow my blog! I post here as much as I can! I want to make it so you can just search my blog for a particular swatch and find it!
2. Follow my twitter! I tweet a lot...probably TOO much but I love twitter, I'm always on!
3. SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel, I may not post as much but I'm trying :D

and if you guys have any requests, questions, or suggestions email me: themakeup101@yahoo.com

Thanks for listening :D

Zebra Key Covers!

I don't know if I've ever posted anything on here about my love for animal print, specifically zebra print. Whenever I see zebra anything I immediately need to make it mine! I have almost everything you can think of and now I even have it on my laptop when I type! I bought them here! They have tons of other prints too! I think they just add more pizzaz and fun to my laptop than just boring old keys!

I love pulling this out in front of friends or even in class and having something fun on my keyboard!

Rimmel Lipstick in Rose Blush

Rimmel Lipstick in Rose Blush:

Their lipsticks are very soft and moisturizing. They also have a very soft feel to them with a long lasting power. They have a wide range of colors, this particular color is more on the natural side with a hint of rosy pink to your lips. This is a great drugstore lipstick!

Physcians Formula Shimmer Brick

I have been wanting to try this for so long so I finally went to Target to pick it up. This is great because it reminds me of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks and this can be used as a highlighter, blush, and eyeshadow! I will hopefully be doing a tutorial using this product as all three. Until then here are the swatches!

I'm on a roll with posting swatches so if you have any requests on any products you want to see or review just let me know and follow me!


Drugstore Palette for $4?!

I have NO idea why I bought this other than my impulse buying. I saw this one night while I was killing time and decided to pick this up cause it was only 4 dollars! The pigmentation is pretty good for being 4 dollars and the quality is well....what you pay for it is kind of chalky but I think if you put these shadows under NYX jumbo pencil in milk and they'll stand out like no other!

This is a CVS exclusive so go check it out! Honestly, I would only say get this if you like to try new things and are an impulse buyer like myself. Other than that SKIP! hahaha

Mulberry For Target

I know this post is a little late, but Mulberry for Target came out about a month or so ago and I have still seen some of their purses in Targets around me. I thought this was going to be another Cynthia Vincent phenomenon, but luckily I was able to get my hands on a few purses.

This pink leopard one I am not too sure if I still want to keep it....I don't know if I'll use it everyday or not. Let me know your thoughts!

My favorite one is the large black pebble, I use it everyday and it fits all my books and even my laptop for school I just love the way it dresses up any outfit. I got the smaller one for my sister and she loves hers too!

Thanks for reading as always,
