Too Faced Cosmetics and ***GIVEAWAY*** (Ends Feb. 14th)

I have two products from Too Faced in my makeup case that I currently own and like to use.
The first product I would like to show you is a blush stick.
Too Faced Blush Stick - "Who's Your Daddy?"
Too Faced Blush Stick ("Who's Your Daddy?") swatched heavily.
 I originally bought this for my sister but she didn't use it so it came back into my possession. :P
I really like it.
The matte shade is definitely great for shading the cheeks. I use the pink shimmery side as a highlight for my cheeks. Sometimes I mix the two colors together which makes it a bit customizable.
It glides on creamy at first but sets into a powder-like feel (semi-matte).
Its fairly easy to apply. Simply dab it onto the cheeks and blend in with your fingers (or brush if you prefer).

Would I repurchase?
Yes, although I still have a long ways to go before this blush stick is finished! O_o

The second Too Faced product I currently own is the "Lash Injection" mascara.
Lash Injection "Pitch Black" (Color: Black)

I like how this mascara's shade is very black like it claims. This mascara is supposed to make your lashes look like lash extensions but I mainly just like it because of the big wand. I don't like to spend a lot of time doing my makeup and so I like how I can just brush my lashes once or twice with this huge mascara wand and get most of my lashes coated. Of course its hard to reach the lashes in the corners but I'm okay with not having every single lashes coated with mascara.

So now for the fun part...

Biore Porepack Review

1. Product Image:

You get 10 individually packaged nose strips in one box

"tear here"

1 Biore pore pack nose strip (black color)

2. Product Description:

How to use
How it works

3. Who is this for? Not for?
This product is good for people who want to remove any blackheads and other gunk out of the pores of your nose.
This product might not work for people with sensitive skin because you have to tug and pull the nose strip off... kind of like a band-aide.

Here, we wet our noses with water first, position the nose strip and stick! :) We found it works best if you add more water to the nose strip until it is quite moist.
My poor bf is forced to try the nose pack with me. :P He was in the middle of playing guitar hero.. hahaha!
And another victim!!!! :P muahhaha! :P This is 'Jinja'.

4. Negatives
It can be messy because it leaves black residue on the nose (maybe the white nose strip will be better although you can't see the dirt from the pores as well as against a black background).
You have to deal with strange looks for about 10 to 15 minutes while waiting for the black strip on your nose to dry.
Black residue from nose strip -__-;;;
Awww... still smiling after all that I put him through! :P
Ninja cheated because he wiped off the black residue so he has a clean nose. :P

 5. Results/Opinions:
I like it! :P You can literally see all the gunk you pulled out of the pores of your nose, especially on the black background. Its gross but kind of fun to see that it worked. :)
My bf approved! He was surprised by the results. :P Maybe I can get him to try it a second time. :P
Ninja gave a thumbs up when I asked him what he thought about this product and its effectiveness. I think he would try it again as well.


6.Would you repurchase?/Where you can buy it:
Yes, I would repurchase this product.
I've been buying the white Biore nose pore clear packs since my teenage years and the black colored one works just as well as the white one.

Making Pizza from Scratch!

My sister came to visit for Christmas again! :) I love her company; she always makes me laugh so hard. O_o If she stayed any longer, I think I might have gotten abs, haha!
We made pizza from scratch because I wanted to use the pizza stone I got for Christmas. :P

I usually like my pizza all boring and plain (pepperoni and cheese only) but my sister loves lots of vegetables and mushrooms on her pizza. :)
There's also a few teriyaki chicken bits on the pizza... yum!

gooey cheese
Just kidding... My sister is super nice! :3
My sister absolutely loves her headband mom crocheted for her. :)
I also dyed my sister's hair red. :P What do you think?

Can't wait until the next time you come and visit again, Wazie! :P

I know I've been doing a lot of food posts lately but that's what we do a lot during the holidays right? :P
