Maybelline Dream Mousse blush in Pink Frosting

I've had this blush for a while and am glad that I grabbed it before the bouncy blushes came out. I got the shade pink frosting and I know there's a Maybelline bouncy blush with the same name, but with the swatches I've seen, the two are not so similar in shade.
 I have to say, I love touching this mousse blush! It feels fluffy!
I love how it blends so easily onto my skin. I also love how it feels, it definitely matches its name, "mousse."

Review: Milani Liquif'eye metallic eye liner pencil in black

So, I'm not the type of girl that likes pencil eye liners because I have oily eye lids and all the pencil liners I've tried have smudged on me. But I've heard so much good things about this eyeliner that I had to try it for myself.
First off, I did try a rubbing test; I let the swatches set on my hand first and then started rubbing the swatches. They will not budge! I was impressed! I also put some water on the swatches and they did not run/smudge, but after rubbing them with water, they did smudge, so I can say they are not waterproof. And the eyeliner is really pigmented! This eyeliner is also very creamy and applies so easily that it was easy for my to make a mistake. I am so used to liquid-pen eyeliners. 
As for the staying power on my eyes, they pretty much stayed put for hours, but by the end of the night, when my face usually gets the oiliest, I was sad to see that the eyeliner smudged on the top of my eyes where my eye lids touch when they are open and also below my eyes. I looked like a raccoon. So I'm sad to say that this eyeliner does not work well for ladies like me that have oily eye lids like mine. My sister, on the other hand did not have troubles with this eye liner because her eye lids don't get as oily, so I will be giving this to her. As for me, I will be sticking to my liquid eye liners. I will be doing a review on the one I am currently using, which is Revlon, and it's safe to say as of right now, I am loving it.

Wet n Wild color icon palette: Greed

I love this palette. My favorites are the top 2 on the left side, they seemed to be the most pigmented/opaque. Mostly, I've been using the top left eye shadow as a base for my lids, the middle left eye shadow for my crease, and the middle right eye shadow for my outer corner. You can't really see the top left eye shadow because it matches my skin tone. Haha! The matte black eye shadow on the bottom left is not as pigmented as the shimmery one on the right. I had to swatch it a couple of times to get it to become opaque but I personally like that because it allows me to slowly work with the eye shadow without picking up too much.

Kony 2012! Stop him!

Hi everyone, I'm sure many of you have heard about Kony 2012.
If not, I'd like to share with you all what Kony 2012 is all about.

Who is Joseph Kony?

Joseph Kony is the world’s worst war criminal. In 1987 he took over leadership of an existing rebel group and renamed it the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
The LRA has earned a reputation for its cruel and brutal tactics. When Joseph Kony found himself running out of fighters, he started abducting children to be soldiers in his army or “wives” for his officers. The LRA is encouraged to rape, mutilate, and kill civilians–often with blunt weapons.
The LRA is no longer active in northern Uganda (where it originated) but it continues its campaign of violence in Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, and South Sudan. In its 26-year history, the LRA has abducted more than 30,000 children and displaced at least 2.1 million people.

What is the goal of KONY 2012?

Invisible Children has been working for 9 years to end Africa’s longest-running armed conflict. U.S. military advisers are currently deployed in Central Africa on a “time-limited” mission to stop Kony and disarm the LRA. If Kony isn’t captured this year, the window will be gone.

We are taking action to ensure these two things:

1) That Joseph Kony is known as the World’s Worst War Criminal.
2) That the U.S. military advisers support the Ugandan Army until Kony has been captured and the LRA has been completely disarmed. They need to follow through all the way and finish what they have started.

Why are we making Joseph Kony "famous"?

Invisible Children’s KONY 2012 campaign aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice. In this case, notoriety translates to public support. If people know about the crimes that Kony has been committing for 26 years, they will unite to stop him.
Secondly, we want Kony to be famous so that when he is stopped, he will be a visible, concrete example of international justice. Then other war criminals will know that their mass atrocities will not go unnoticed or unpunished.
