Nutella + Hauls

Homemade bread with a little honey...stuffed with Nutella...baked to perfection!
First attempt:
Tasted a little off, but still yummy!
Second attempt:

Excuse the missing portion =X
It smelled like heaven when I took it out of the oven and I couldn't resist, so I ate a portion and went to grab my camera!
Yes, definitely gotta make more! It was DEVOURED by my fambam!

I've accumulated a crap load of crap during the past month =X
I am no longer an AMORE STORE virgin...My FIRST trip to Amore (Artesia):
I've been getting flaky skin so of course I had to try the Strawberry Peel!
Absolutely love it! I honestly don't have dry skin, so it doesn't really 'work' but it still leaves my skin silky smooth afterwards. And as everyone mentions, it smells OH-SO yummy!
Does anyone use it more than twice a week??
Got a couple lashes. I am also a virgin to criss cross lashes, so I had to pick some up!
Definitely loving them right now! The band is a bit stiffer than I am used to, but the benefits of that is I can see myself reusing it many, MANY times. My usual ones have a very soft band. It sits more comfortable on my eye but I usually can only get a couple good uses out of them before they get all wonky.
And, a BUNCH of lovely samples! LOVE IT!!
Quick trip to OHAYO & Walgreens:
Picked up the Egg Peel.
I'm indifferent about this product. I'm not sure I like it. Before I make any statements, I gotta use it a bit more. It def wasn't love-at-first-sight.
Also got a few eye shadows from Revlon's new Matte Collection.
They are actually really good! Very pigmented and just glides on smoothly! A bit powdery but I don't mind it. Even though it is their "Matte" collection, they are not entirely matte. It seems like there's a bit of some shimmer(?) maybe. But it is not at all noticeable. It also may be just me =X
Random goods bought online:

MAC Holidazzle Pink Eyes Palette (October 2003)
Smashbox Smashing Loose Eyeshadow
Philosophy The Little Black Book Palete

I'm not much of a PINK person, but it was a good deal!
I love the packaging!(Yogurt, Pink Freeze, Melton Mauve, Winter Twig, Trax, Sketch, Beauty Marked)
Gift from J:
Criss Cross lashes from Japan
MAC Mineralized Powder - Light Medium
(I think it's too light, gotta go exchange it)
MAC Charming Garnet Glamour Basics Holiday Set

YAY! I wanted this set but was hesistant to purchase it. I really just wanted the 181 and Slimshine. But at the price of JUST the 181, you get all these other goodies! Great deal =)
I def want more Slimshines now! But Bare ain't cutting it for me. Looks too orange(?) on me...
Belightful - not sure if I would use this, but it's super pretty in the pan!

Ulta FF20% & L'oreal BOGO:

EVERYTHING L'oreal was BOGO plus Ulta was having a FF20% coupon.
Picked up some HIP Jelly balms. Been meaning to try them since they first came out but never got around to purchasing them. So far, they are ALRIGHT. Def not pigmented enough but I was warned about that among other reviewers.
I'm trying to get into MASCARA because I def am NOT one. I have typical non-existent Asian lashes so false lashes are my go-to thing. Watched a youTube video about combining both of Clean Definition & Voluminous and getting fab results. So, I may give it a try and see. But, I may just stick to falsies. (I can't stand taking off mascara!!!)
First haul from Silk Naturals:

I've been meaning to purchase their Fibre Optic brush for quite some time now. Just never got around ordering it. Picked up a couple mineral blushes, shadows, perfecting powders, and a cream liner.


Lipglosses & Lip Stains
I really wanted to try Giza! So, I got that and a few others =X

First photo was in whatever lighting. Second is with sunlight.
I also got Dr. Jart's BB Cream.
But, I gotta reorder and get the Silver because the Black is for dry skin and since winter is over, it is def making me oily very fast. I hope the Silver is just the same =X
Anyone tried both???
Went to Macy's the other day for the Cosmetics settlement.
Yes, HORRIBLE photo (I know), but I couldn't adjust my camera right =/
I woke up that morning. Me and J decided that it would either be LONG ASS lines or everything would be gone (this was at 12pm).
At 4pm, bro calls and says his gf just got some goods! =O So, called J, and off we went!
This was in Pasadena on Lake. Even though the line was fairly long, it took <15>
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief 1 oz.
What I like about it:
Oil Free.
Super light.
Very cooling gel.
Really moisturizing.
Need only a tiny pea size amount for the whole face.

I can't really say that I would purchase this again (if I ever run out) because I don't think it does anything special. Only moisturizes, but a lot of other things just moisturizes, too. But I do like that it is oil-free! So that is def a plus.

I'm planning on trying out Laneige's skincare lines but I'll probably use this as an EXTRA moisturizer, if needed.

I still needa do a post about my trip up north! Everyone have a fab weekend!

A friend sent me this video and it's pretty funny!
You gotta watch it the through to the end =)

Any one know their alphabets backwards????
Bekuz I sure can't do that!!!

bought a BUNCH of stuff I got to share up on here.
Got my FIRST BB Cream, Dr. Jart, which I absolutely L-O-V-E but it gets me oily real quick. I don't know if it's me or not *shrugs* But I am hooked and will try others out there!

More posts to come!
