Hello everyone! Are you all excited for Halloween? Are you going to any parties? I'm not a party person but I was invited to multiple parties and it was hard to choose which one to go to, what I'm going to wear, how to do my makeup, blah blah blah. What are you going to be? Whatever it is, I'm sure you're going to look cute because all my readers are adorable. :D But, I found the perfect fall manicure! Well, if you have pumpkins on your nails, then you might beat this, but for us lazy girls, one color is enough work.

I first saw this polish when Claire Marshall on youtube mentioned it in one of her favorites and I thought it was the perfect Halloween nail color because it's a beautiful almost-black color. And come on, that name puts the cherry on top. Wicked, as in wicked witch, get it? Just me? Okay.

That's it for this quickie post! Let me know your favorite fall nail polish shades. See you next time! XD

Hello everyone! I get asked about my hair a lot, like if I dye it and what products I use, stuff like that. And let me tell you, I don't spend a lot of time on my hair at all. I'm pretty lazy when it comes to styling, so anything that makes it easier to do my hair, I'm all for trying it.

Background: I have fine hair, so heavier products that are supposed to moisturize your hair weigh my hair down and make it look greasy and gross. And no, I have never dyed my hair. Occasionally, like once a year, I will use gradual lightening products (a.k.a., blonde highlighting shampoos, leave-in sprays, ect.) to keep my hair the shade of blonde that I like. As for the texture, I have very straight hair. I can air-dry it and it'll look like I straightened it with a flat iron.

Washing: I wash my hair every 2-3 days. Washing your hair everyday can strip it of its natural oils and ultimately dry it out. At first, I had to train my hair to get used to going that long without a wash. Your hair will be greasy some days but in time that will reduce and you can go 4 days without washing it. And yes, you can still shower everyday, haha. Just put your hair up in a top knot or a shower cap to prevent it from getting wet. Sometimes when I tell people that I don't wash my hair everyday, think that I don't shower for 3 days. No, I live for my shower every morning.

The Products: I have found my HG haircare range! And it's super cheap so it won't break the bank. *drum roll* It's the L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 line! Everything I've tried from this range, I loved. I don't need as much repair as it claims to give, but I do use heat and it does take a toll on the health of my hair. The shampoo and conditioner help reverse that (or at least makes it look like it did) for everyday use, but the repair balm is great if you want something that's going to pack a bigger punch. This range makes my hair soft, shiny, and look healthier. And for those days that I'm not washing my hair, dry shampoo is a must. Out of the million dry shampoos that I've tried, the Batiste Dry Shampoo in the Blonde shade is my all time favorite, but since ran out recently, I'm currently using the original which is still good, especially if you don't want anything tinted.

Styling: I feel like you can get away with dirty hair more if your hair is curly, I don't know if that's just me. But personally, I like messy, curly hair because it's fun and effortless. I'll just curl my hair one day, and then wear the curls the next two days. If they start to fall, I just go back in with my curling iron, touch it up a bit, and then I'm out the door.

Let me know some of your HG hair products! Do you like curly or straight hair? See you next time! XD

Hello everyone! Is it just me, or do you guys love fall lip colors? It pains me to put away my bright oranges and corals, but I'm happy that I can pull out my berry and plum lipsticks. They just make me feel like a badass, does anyone else feel like that? Since I'm easing my way into bolder colors, most of my vampy shades are from the drugstore. Out of my entire collection, these are the top 5 colors that I will be using this fall!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry: If you are looking for a deep vampy shade for cheap, this is the the lipstick I would suggest. It's very versatile in the way that you can apply it lightly with a lip balm and it will be a wash of berry, but if you build it up, it's a rich color. One of my all-time favorite youtubers, Clarie Marshall, mentions this shade a lot and that made me rush out to the drugstore to get it, and now I have been converted.

Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum: This is great if you're looking for an easy-to-wear plum color for fall. It shows up more on the purple side but it's not going to be too bold to make people like me, who are not used to bold shades, uncomfortable. And you don't have to worry about upkeep with this shade because it fades nicely and does not leave a lip liner effect.

Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready: This shade, oh goodness, this shade is soo pretty. I saw it on my friend and she looked great in it, so I had to have it. And then I had my friends in my art class try it and they look great in it, too, and we all have very different skin tones. Almost everyone can rock this and the formula is very comfortable and it smells like fruity pebbles. Enough said.

MAC Shanghai Spice: Fall is also the time for smokey eyes and heavier eye makeup, and that calls for a nude lip. I like Shanghai Spice because it is a beautiful peachy shade that goes well with my skin tone. If I don't know what to wear, it's usually this because I know it's going to work for me.

Rimmel Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner in Obsession: A liner is a must for most vampy shades to make sure it stays in place and looks clean and neat. This particular shade is in the middle of brick red and berry so it can lean either way depending on the lipstick you choose. Or you can wear it on its own for a long-wear, matte look.

Let me know your favorite fall lip colors! Especially for MAC because, I have an addiction and I want/need more MAC lipsticks. See you next time! XD

4 Disappointing Products!

Hello everyone! It's been getting harder and harder to find time to sit down and actually write. I wish I can update every day, but I can't. :( But we're here, so let's get down to business, products that just didn't work out for me. 

Nyx Glam Liner: This is a glittery liquid liner I got in a set around Christmas time and it just sucks. It makes your eyelids feel tight and constricted. Plus, it flakes like no other! By the end of the day half of your eyeliner has chipped off. Don't buy it.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss: Don't shoot me, but I don't like the Maybelline Baby Lips. It's not a very good lipbalm, and it doesn't have a lot of color, so what can I use this for? It smells good, but it doesn't do what it's supposed to. It's just useless.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains in London Posh: I know that some people love the Moisture Stains and some people hate them. I've only tried this shade, but I wouldn't recommend it. The color is really pretty and shiny, but it's so patchy. It likes to bundle up in weird places and it just looks off. Plus, the smell is weird and chemically. Maybe the other shades work just fine, but this one is a no go.

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Classic Ivory: First of all, to address the packaging in the photo, all of writing has rubbed off because it keeps on getting thrashed about in my makeup collection. But the thing is, I don't necessarily hate the formula of this. It's a good foundation, but the color I chose is waaay off. Classic Ivory has a very pink undertone and it just does not work with my skin. It made me look fake and it was just weird to see myself with a pink-toned foundation. I'm definitely a yellow-toned girl.

Makeup is very personal and some of these things might work for other people, but they just didn't for me. Usually, I can't do these types of posts because if I don't use something, I find someone who can so it's not a complete waste of money. Let me know what product didn't work out for you! See you next time! XD
