Revlon vs. Sephora liquid eyeliner review

Went to Walmart today for some stuff~

Kiss Brush-On Nail Glue
REVLON ColorStay Liquid Liner
REVLON ColorStay Eyeliner
Martha Stewart Holidays heart glitter

Brush-On glue for when my nail-tips come.
Also heard really good reviews about Revlon ColorStay products so decided to give them a try.
Also since I've been raping the last of my pencil eyeliners.
And Martha Stewart's gorgeous heart glitter.
Man, I love after-Valentine's sale. They only had one left too!

Oh, and a Bead Storage System for mixing my acrylic powder with glitter when they come in the mail (:

Aw look at the pink tabs!

So I decided to do a comparison for you guys! (:


By the way, I've been using Sephora's shimmering black liquid liner for about a year now.
The first bottle seemed to work best for me.
So that always brings me back and I'm on my third bottle right now.
But really, the eyeliner runs off like mad once in contact with water.
It easily washes off when I'm taking off my make-up and when my eyes get watery, I need to reapply.
Terrible when my allergies are acting up.
It also gets chunky around 12 hours after application on my way home from school.

The black-ness of it might be taken away from the fact that it's shimmery though.
I'm gonna miss it... haha.

Too bad they don't have REVLON in shimmer though...
I like glittery things. :P

And well, from the pictures, you could tell I'm really excited to try REVLON tomorrow.

Yummy yummy in my tummy~

And I have mid-terms on Monday when reading week ends...
Which reminds me... I should get to studying now. (:

Urban Decay's Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows

Sorry for not updating for so long!
School was keeping me busy, but it's finally Reading Week!
Which means I get a week of no school and I spent the first day of it waking up late and playing Kingdom Hearts...

Valentine's Day!!
I got my boyfriend two boxes of chocolates from Laura Secord
and... Bioshock 2 Special Edition! It comes with the original game, a vinyl record of the soundtrack, the soundtrack on CD, 3 posters, and a BEAUTIFUL art book all contained into a sturdy sexy box.

I hardly get to shop by myself since I'm with him everytime we go downtown for school.
So I had to lie to him and say I needed to go to the washroom.
Ran down a block to BestBuy and got the last one in stock!
I had a hard time convincing him not to get it for himself too. d:

He got me Urban Decay's Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows!
And a very sweet card which he photoshopped and made himself that I absolutely love to death.
It's so touching and kinda makes me cry, but out of joy. (:

So here's the Book of Shadows~

Full pop-up with slide-out palette.

Pop-up details.


It cost him $150 for it... I feel really bad but I will cherish this palette till the end of time!
It's the most beautiful thing in the world! And the price is just going to keep on increasing!
Except if Urban Decay decides to reproduce it...

I've bought a lot of stuff this month so I'll update with a haul entry later. (:
Right now, I gotta clean my room.
It's a total mess since I haven't had any time to clean it for the past two weeks.

Bronchitis again!

After class yesterday, felt sick... thought it was because of fasting but woke up with a terrible sore throat and stuffy nose and headaches. Fever was at 37.8 this morning. And just now...

._. I feel terrible. Thing is I also have a lot of assignments due on Friday. So I gotta finish them all tomorrow... It was pretty outside when I woke up though~

So I went to see the doctor... and apparently I've got bronchitis again for the second time this year... Got some antibiotics, Apo-Clarithromycin. I've been getting prescribed so many antibiotics, at this rate when I reach 20, I'll be immune to them D:

And the doctor's clinic was at a mall so I just picked up a little something~

Five Mickey Mouse folders~

And a Playboy pillow. (;

So things I gotta do tomorrow: critical response, 10 photoshopped collages, rough sketches for italian restaurant, cd cover using in-class life-drawing pictures.
Agh my head is hot and my hands are freezing cold.

Found this Starling rose print hoodie from Craigslist! It's so cute! Still contacting seller (:

Oh I lost 5 pounds since last week!
Need to lose 20 more pounds before May; trip to Hong Kong!
