"Give me high blood pressure when you blush."

Well! My haul from Mac's Friends and Family sale came in and to say the least I am ECSTATIC about what I got!
Everything in it's packaging.
Top Left: Sheertone Shimmer Dollymix Blush, Carbon Eyeshadow, Stain Well Dressed Blush, Highlight Powder in Honey Light, and Technkhol Eyeliner in Graphblack.

These 5 things are just adding to my ever growing Mac collection. I never thought I'd be such a fan of the brand but it's grown a lot on me.
I made this little box from the Mac cardboard box that they ship the make-up in. I just cut off the lid with an Xacto knife, take some red tissue paper from one of my Sephora bags sitting around and wrap up the foam that cushions the package and stuck it back in. It works great to organize the make up that I don't keep in my bag so it's accessible and safe from falling. With my new goodies is my Springsheen and Mineralized Skin Finish Natural and Powerpoint Eyeliner in Engraved.

Initial thoughts:

This blush lived up to every single expectation I had for it. It's a nice bright pink that doesn't look unnatural on your cheeks. Gives your cheeks a nice flush like you just pinched them. I adore this color!! I have a bit of a heavy hand with blush but a little bit of rubbing will blend the color perfectly.
AH! I'm in love with this color! I wouldn't dare say that I love it more then Springsheen but those two have got to be my faves.

Well Dressed
I love the color of this blush in the pan. It's a adorable pale pink, but I'm afraid it's too light for me. I swatched it in the store and decided to buy it anyways because it had a nice pale pink shade but I put it on my cheeks and it looked as if I hadn't put any blush on at all. In particular lighting you can see the pink, but other then that nope. I'll more then likely be returning this product but what should I exchange it for? Another blush?? Suggestions anyone?

Here's a side by side view:

Technkhol in Graphblack
EEP! I like this liner so much! It goes on very smoothly and and gently. I've been wearing it for about 4 hours now and it's sort of disappeared but that is what I bought Carbon for! Given, I did apply it to the waterline because I prefer my liner to be there, but I lined my eyes with Powerpoint and put Carbon on top and its barely budged! Things are finally looking up in the eyeliner department.

I went to H-Mart ( my local chain Asian supermarket) with my parents a few weeks back and I found some amazing things that I never knew existed/they had!

I've seen this candy before but I think the little girl on the packaging is adorable! It's like me
Then I saw this!
I made my brother take a picture of me with Giant Pocky. I almost bought it but then I saw the price haha but seeing it was enough for me!

I'm a little bit obsessed with cute looking things. Milk candy is so yum yum.

So, what have I been wearing? Nothing too special, haha. My style is always very casual and comfortable.
new F21 dress that I got a few months ago. The straps are braided =) But it's cut pretty low. With AE Bandeau that was on clearance for about $7
Haha I was dumb. I only took a picture of the top half of the outfit. I wore this pink long sleeve Ralph Lauren button down (with sleeves folded up above the elbow), dark washed Gap denim skirt, and dressed it down with Converse laceless Chuck Taylors (my fave!)

So I've visited CVS a lot in the past couple of days (had to pick up a few prescriptions for the fam) and I found some Adrell lashes and ORLY polish. I really wanted to buy some polish but I told myself no make up for a while, but I don't even know what color to start coloring my nails. I'm really indecisive. If you guys have any suggestions what so ever feel free to let me know =) I'd greatly appricate it.

This is my new favorite video/song! Haha sometimes I feel like such a teenie bopper for liking JoBros and Demi Lovato but I can't deny but dance to their songs! But Demi and Selena Gomez together... AWESOMNESSSSSS! Ta Da! Not to mention I love both their lip colors/make up in the video =)
