New thoughts on Lash Stylist

I'd just like to clear something up. I made a post a while back about how much I hate Lash Stylist by Mabyelline. Well, I sorta lied. I don't hate it. I really love it. It volumizes, lengthens and dramatizes my lashes like no other. Because I already have super long lashes, which I am so grateful for, mascara tends to really really emphasize them, even when they already don't need it. And I like to keep looks more natural for school, and the Stylist just makes them too bold and out there. But when I'm not at school, and I want an amazing bold lash, this is my holy grail party mascara. Honestly, they are insane with this mascara. I get so many compliments!! There's still the problem about the product depositing little clumps here and there, but they eventually randomly dissapear, or you can take them out easily when dried. But honestly, I suggest you guys try this out for yourself. I have a love-hate relationship with it, but right now I'm really really loving it. Maybe the fact that I have a waterproof version makes it thicker? I don't know! But I do reccommend it for bold, fluttery lashes!

Mac Little Darlings

hello everyone :)
So I decided agaisnt the whole christmas haul, because I only got one make up item, so I didn't feel the need to haul a bunch of random stuff. And I know I'm really late, but I've just been pretty busy, and only decided to post about this now. I was thrilled to recieve the Mac Little Darlings Lip Glass collection in neturals!! I had once been at the mall with my friend, and mentioned wanting to go pick up Love Nectar lustreglass. Well, my friend managed to get me Love Nectar, and 4 other lip glasses!! She is the least make up person ever, and I'm still in awe that she remembered the name that I said! Anyways, I absolutely adore this set! They are 5 mini lip glasses and lustre glasses exactly half the size of a regular one.

From left to right : C-Thru, Mouthwatering, Languish, Love Nectar, Beaux.

C-Thru is the perfect nude lip with subtle gold shimmer... I really love it!
Mouthwatering is a light pink, sorta frosty, i loveee this one!
Languish is much too dark for me, so I gave it to my mommy. She dabs it over her lipstick and it looks great!
Love Nectar is the MAC must have!! No description needed.
Beaux is a pretty coppery color but not too dark. It's actually really pretty :)

I'm really happy with all my lip glasses!! :) They are also so cute and little, but run out incredibly fast!! I'm really glad these are all permanent colors, because once I run out, I'll be sure to re-purchase Love Nectar (duh!) mouthwatering, and c-thru!

That's it for now,

I had to...

Hello again,
So as I was saying in my previous post, I've been gone from yt for about 12 days, and I missed out on tons of videos, and tons of drama. I've always been disconnected from the drama, though I've witnessed a lot of it. If you ask me, all this drama is getting quite ridiculous. Youtube is supposed to be a place where people can connect and share their ideas via video. It's also a place for fun. People have enough drama in their lives, especially all the teenage girls on here, I'm sure they have plenty at high school! So why should they have to deal with these cyber bullies, and stupid lame people who are honestly so bored with their lives that they try their very best to start turmoil in others. Like leave these poor girls alone! Don't call them spoiled, cause they're not. And if you think they are, then keep it to yourself. Don't call them ugly, because they're beautiful and they have the confidence to actually put themselves out into the world whereas you are hiding behind a screen name insulting them. Don't call them copy cats because a lot of the girls are friends, and share ideas. Just basically, leave these girls alone! It's really stupid to see all this happening. Girls are having to stop making videos all together, putting them to private, or switching usernames. This shouldn't have to happen. It's childish and really dumb. So honestly, if you're one of those people who like to start up controversy or insult girls, then you're a major low life, and you should spend your time doing something else. Wow, that was a rant and a half. I'm sorry. I've personally never been attacked, but I see all this stuff going on and it's all so frustrating and ridiculous to me, I don't imagine what it feels like to be in the shoes of a victim. I know everyone is making a video about haters, or posts, and I know it seems really repetitive, but I had to say something. It's so unbelievably stupid I can't even tell you how frustrated it makes me to see this happening. So girls, if you're a personal victim, all I can tell you is that for every hater, you have 50 other subscribers that love you, and watch your videos. So as hard as it is to ignore these stupid people, you should, cause if you pretend they don't affect you whatsoever then they realize it's a waste of their time and they'll stop. They feed off the problems they cause, so just try and ignonre it. You're all beautiful and talented and fun girls, and you deserve all the love and support in the world because putting videos up is very brave and you should not be critized for it.
I'll stop now, this has been a really really long post and I'm sorry.

See you later,

Back to reality...

Hola chicas,

I know I haven't posted in a really long time, but I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season no matter what holiday they celebrate! :) I actually left for vacation on Christmas day, and only got back the night before school, and ever since things have been so hectic I haven't had anytime to go on blogspot and post. I've also missed out on a lot of videos, and it's hard to catch up!! But I will in time see all the great Christmas hauls people are putting up! :) Anyways, yes. That is why I've been gone. School is started again, BOO. But spring break is just around the corner...sorta... Also, lately I've been seeing really cool and elaborate templates and layout schemes for blogs. Personally I'm not the most saavy in that sorta stuff, so if anyone can help me out or give me a cool one that would be greatly appreciated!!

I hope everyone had a great break (hey, that rhymes!)
See you later,
Lauren <33

Mascara, Mascara, MASCARA!

Hello again!
Second post of the day, woohoo!
I'm on a major mascara high lately, so today I decided to make a post about my least favorite mascara. I hate it. It's "Lash Stylist" by Mabyelline. I hate it. I wish I loved it, because it does do a really good job of volumizing and lenghtening and thickening your lashes. Like that aspect of it is amazing, except that it deposits these little chunks of mascara on your lashes, and it just looks terrible! I've tried expirimenting with the application to try to avoid the annoying little clumps but I can't figure it out! The brush is so innovative, and you'd think the product would go on great, except it doesn't. and it's sad. :( I've also tried combing out my lashes afterwards, and it does eventually get the chunks out, but by the end, you've just messed up your lashes and they're all in different directions, and it's just a really hard mascara to work with! It also takes an annoyingly long time to dry. Like you have to keep your eye wide open for like 30 seconds or else it'll smudge. ALSO! when you blink, about like 10 minutes you'll see mascara on your bottom lashes, EVEN if you didn't put any!! And last but not least, this mascara flakes really bad!!!

Rating : 4/10

Pros: Thickens, lengthens and volumizes REALLY well.
Cons: Flakes, smudges and leaves chunks of mascara on your lashes!!

Update & Shout out!

Hey everyone!

Well, I sure haven't blogged in a while. School has just been so hectic and with mid-term exams coming up, I've been really busy. But I've still been following all my subscriptions videos and I've been in a couple Ustreams and I've also been reading blogs. I'm really loving the Current State Of the Union. I've been reading the clique books since the first one came out a million years ago, and I always love Massie's CSTU. I might start it up, but I rather not be accused of "copying" since that drama has been going on a lot lately.

Moving on, I'd just like to give a quick shout out to Strawbezzi. I'm sure you are all quite aware of this amazing youtuber, but if you aren't, GO SUB TO HER RIGHT NOW! If I made youtube videos religiously I'd make her a vid, but since I don't, I'll have to settle for a blog-shout out! Honestly guys, she's amazing and beautiful and her ustreams are always soo much fun. She's so down to earth and cute, and just overall a blast to watch! :)

So yeah, basically. After exams end, and it's winter break, I'll probably be blogging much more. I'll be away on vacation for about 12 days, but I'll have a lot of time before and after I depart.
I hope everyone is having a good day, and I'll see you later!!

My new mascara obsession and beauty rush lip glosses

So, I wanted to tell you about my new obsession...fresh supernova mascara. What first caught my eye was it's gorgeous packaging. It's so pretty and dainty in it's black tube and white flowery design! Second, it was on Sephora's faves for mascara. I love it a lot! But the price tag, not so much. It's a fairly expensive mascra, but in my opinon, it's more than worth it!! It seperates, elongates and volumizes your lashes without the least bit of clumping. It's the most dramatic difference, but the most natural one too! I can't say enough good things about this mascara. GO PICK IT UP!

I'm currently on a Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush high right now. I carry around 5 at school. 2 in my pockets, one in my locker, and 2 in my pencil case! I adore them!! They are sooo cheap, $7 each, $12 for 3, and $15 for 5. GET THEM NOW! I have : "grapefruit blast", "slice of heaven", "mango madness", "pinkberry" and "red delicious". My favorite would probably be "slice of heaven". They smell and taste amazing, look so pretty, last a decent amount of time, and aren't sticky at all. They are a great alternative to high end lip glosses and probably the best cheap lip gloss on the market. I will definately be buying more soon. :)

That's it you guys, til next time,
