Tagged Again! Plus New Scent-sations

Apparently I'm either slow or liked...or both!

I've been tagged by DustBunny! Thanks sweetie!

What’s your favorite eye shadow color to wear?
Green...but I've moved onto blue. Purple is also a fav smoky look for me.

What’s the one product you wouldn’t leave your house without?
A small 2 oz. bottle of Hempz hands get dry after washing them and in general I just like to keep my skin moisturized at all times.

What’s your favorite makeup look – high drama OR natural?
High drama...anyone can do a natural look any day but high drama requires extra care and special attention and is usually done for a unique and memorable moment.

Which feature do you play up the most?
Eyes...I like people to look me in the eyes and be drawn in to me, muhahaha.

Which feature do you try to downplay/cover up?
For cameras/pictures I like to downplay shiny glare especially on my forehead and nose...otherwise definitely any scars or blemishes and dark undereye circles.

Your favorite makeup brand, if you could pick only ONE to exist?
I am head-over-heels in love with NARS...but if there could only be one, it'd have to be MAC since it costs less (so you can get more!) and I have many fond memories in which I was wearing MAC.

Which product have you re-purchased OVER and OVER again?
MAC Lipglasses...I don't care how sticky they are, how it sucks when it's windy and my hair flies and sticks to my lips, or a lover complains (he'll accept my kisses regardless)...they are the prettiest to me and last long.

Which product would you NEVER repurchase again and why?
Rimmel...I've tried some of their eyeliners and mascaras and they did nothing for me.

One beauty treatment you would always PAY to have done?
This is a hard one as I don't think there's haircuts count? lol

One beauty treatment you would NEVER pay to have done?
eye dee kay =)

One beauty trick you can share with everyone:
Keep a small hair clip (like a butterfly/claw clip) in the shower to use when you condition your hair - apply conditioner in your hair and then clip it up to let the conditioner do its thing for a few minutes while you finish the rest of your shower routine, and then rinse out. It gives the conditioner more time to work its magic and condition and hydrate your hair, like a mask, so that your hair will be nice and soft and healthy. =)

Best advice you've ever been given regarding beauty and makeup?
The one I just gave, duh! jk I'd say using eyeshadow primer. Before I knew about that, it was so frustrating to use eyeshadow and not see the color show up well on my eyelids, or if I packed it on for a night out it'd fall off and I'd have panda eyes, thus making me look even more like a horribly drunk girl! =P

I'm tagging back Iyah, WuzzyAngel, Yasumi, Melissa, Yumeko, Songling, Amanda, Kon and anyone else who wants to do this but hasn't been tagged yet.

In other news...everyone reading this, you MUST go to Bath & Body Works!! They have new scents and some sales that you just MUST take advantage of.

I mentioned in my last post that I am in love with the new SLEEP Black Chamomile in the B&BW Aromatherapy line...goooooo smell it! The current sale is 2 for $20 Select Aromatherapy . Last week it was only the lotion and body wash on sale so I'd gotten two bottles of the lotion plus the pillow mist for FREE with a coupon I had (and they gave me another coupon to use in March for a free signature item). Just doooooo it....go, smell, fall in love!! I'm telling will cuddle yourself to sleep! haha

Another great new scent is "Dancing Waters" - very clean but kind of sexy! B&BW body butters are on sale for $7 (regular price $15) so I got two in "Dancing Waters" (and they gave me another free item coupon for March). What are you waiting for? At least just go and smell!!

Happy weekend, everyone!!


  1. Great post!
    The Body Butter looks edible, haha


  2. oh...I'm so excited but would do this right after my tests. Thursday night ( Malaysia time) will do this.

  3. I don't think you're slow, but one thing's for sure you're liked :D

  4. That cream is so cute! It's all swirled

  5. Ooooo dancing waters, I liked it -- it was a very fresh "just showered" scent -- which is a great item to get for boys who don't want to be "foo-foo" about getting fancy lotions.

    and i STILL need that damn pillow spray, yah yah even tho i have my lavender/chammomile one, but u know how we likes to change it up when we can (wink wink)

    my word verif. : TRAPP
    "shut yo trapp"

  6. I'm actually in love with their new scent optimism!

  7. i looove MAC lip glass too! it really does last the longest and the colors are amaaaziiing! haha and i def agree with the primer! i dont know how i ever lived without it!

  8. Great hair tip!! I will definately try this as my ends get pretty dry =[ Thanks!

  9. Oooh I love Bath & Body Works! They make great gifts and my mom's obsessed with their cherry blossom body butter. They were on sale cause they had new packaging, so I'll have to drop by to see their current sales! Thanks for letting me know :]

  10. aww you caught me!! i gotta try the hemps lotion!!

  11. Dammit! Tagged again!! If I don't get it done before we leave, I'll def do it when we come back!! :)

    I think you and I would share some of the same answers!! ;)

  12. Life before primer was soo sad... Especially having a darker skin tone, I'd get soo frustrated. I have a hair clip that I keep in the shower too!!! I like to let my conditioner marinate.
    I need some hemp lotion in my life. I keep moisturizer in my purse. My hands get hella dry after I wash them especially in pubic restrooms with harsh soaps.

  13. i wish i could smell them too!
    i shall hunt for em on ebay hee

  14. dancing waters sounds like an intriguing scent...I always end up liking the scents from B&BW that get discontinued though =T

  15. OMgoodness Diana! I didn't even know I was tagged. Haha. Havent been updating that much, that's why! :) I will do this ASAP! :p

    Yeah I agree with you about MAC Lipglasses, we still buy them even if they're sooo sticky. Adrian complains a lot of it, haha!

  16. Hahah quit tempting me with B&BW! I said I'm gonna go check them out already! =P haha
