Lancôme Review Part One

Hello! I come today with a review of some products Lancôme Paris sent me for filling out a survey.

I was given four different products. I have yet to try the lipstick or eyeshadow palette but I have used the mascara and gloss! I will review those and save the others for another time.

The gloss I was given the Color Fever Gloss in Blushing Pink. The color is very light, it's almost a clear gloss on my lips. I have never really been a fan of glosses because of the stickiness factor, but this one doesn't bother me at all. It's very light weight as well. I have been using it ever since I got it. Its unique wand really does apply the gloss perfectly to my lips.

The mascara is called Hypnôse Drama. I love that this mascara does not clump my lashes, but it does not volumize them as much as I would like. It is easily fixed by using an eyelash curler though, which I normally do not use. This mascara is very easy to remove as well, so I don't wake up with my eyelashes still clumpy with stuff I couldn't get off the other night. I like this a lot more than my normal mascara, Maybelline Colossal. The wand on this one also has a curved shaped, making it easier to apply.

I will probably try the other products tomorrow (depending on if I go out tonight with my beau) so expect part two soon!

I haven't taken outfit pictures in a while.... my schedule is so cramped with school and work that it is hard to find the time. I am trying to actually teach my boyfriend photography, so he can take pictures for me when we move in together in a few months.

A lot of people have been telling me I shouldn't move in with him, but this has been an issue since we've been together and we've both gone over all the pros and cons very thoughtfully. I have told him no about 20 times before now telling him yes. It seems like no one believes in me and it's painful to realize. No one has really believed in me my whole life.

Anyways, I will be posting more often! Please stay tuned!

Happy Humpday

Woohoo Wednesday! I have a Stats test today that I am terrified of taking. My teacher just... doesn't teach the way I can understand, so it is a big struggle seeing as math is the hardest subject for me. I have not been taking photos recently because my main photographer was in Costa Rica on vacation, and I used the time to focus on school as well. lots of things have happened to me though in the meantime!

I have recently got a package from Giant Vintage containing four pairs of sunglasses for me to style! It was supposed to be three, but one of the pairs (unfortunately my favorite!) was running out of stock so they sent me that style in two different colors. I am very impressed with their customer service. Here is a picture from my instagram of the pairs:

The packaging was my favorite part! How sweet of them to add some candy~ I have been using these pairs for the past week now and they are all excellent! The tortoise shell ones are actually my favorite, the lenses are tinted so when you put them on, everything looks sepia toned. The purple framed glasses are similar, but everything is tinted purple instead.

Another thing that happened was that I won a giveaway! My friend Zoe from GrandTheftThrift hosted a giveaway with FlyingTomato for this dress and I won it!:

I will take pictures in it soon! The dress is great quality and very cute. I am looking forward to styling it with my Giant Vintage shades and a white blazer. B)

As for new purchases, I am going to buy these lovely tights from

I love the garter legging look. Layering another pair of tights under these would be very cute in fall and winter, or in summer with a cute tank top and sneakers.
