Make Me A Supermodel
1. The different colors the brushes come in.
2. They are great for traveling.
1. The texture of the bristles don't feel like the regular sized MAC brushes.
2. The 187SE doesn't pick up as much product as the regular 187.
3. I feel like I wasted money on buying these brushes.
Just because these are MAC brushes doesn't mean they have the same quality as the regular sized brushes. You can find cheaper brushes out there that will do a better job. Then again, if you love MAC and just need brushes to travel with then these are for you. I have one holiday set and the HK set. I don't plan on buying anymore of the travel sized brushes. I'd rather get another brand or save up to get the regular sized brushes.

I hope all of you had a great weekend! Anyhoo, did you hear about Enkore's make-up seminar? If you haven't heard about him he is an AWESOME make-up guru on youtube. He is a really great MUA. You end up learning a lot from his videos.
I'm excited, because it's in the bay. I live like an hour and a half from the location, but it's all good. The seminar is called "Mild to Wild". He is teaching a day time look and then a night time look. So, a look you can wear on the daily and a look you can glam up at night. This seminar is only $50 and I'm like that's dope for us who are BALLIN ON A BUDGET. haha..
I asked one of my bests to go with me and if she says no I'm about to go by myself. I really want to go to step up my make-up skills. Feel me? I'm not sure if it's before or after the seminar there will be a make-up sale. They will be selling products 20-60% off on NAME BRAND PRODUCTS. OH EM GEE!
So, I'll see yall there then. I might be shy to say hi to you if I recognize you from the blog or youtube world, but I'll definitely smile.
Here is the video if you want to check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rm5_wJvCK4
Hope yall are staying dry and warm.

Ladies, do you walk in heels all day? Are you dancer that could never be a foot model, because of the way your feet look? Have you ever wore the most UNCOMFY shoes to the club and by the end of the night yo feel really hurt?
Well, ladies and gents this is the product for you! I have been dancing for 9 years and my feet have been through it all. From, dancing on wooden floor each week to dancing on a volcano. Over the years, I have developed caluses on my feet. When I'd touch the side of my feet it would hurt really bad. It was SOOO not the BIDNASS! So, one day I was watching an infomercial about this product. I was skeptical about it and didn't know if I wanted to use it. Then last year, I was at Frys and there it was. Frys is an electronic store if you don't know what it is. So, I coped one and decided to try it out. This product is an inexpensive way to shave of your caluses.
Here are my results:
1. The packaging is convienient and easy to travel with.
2. The clean-up isn't hard.
3. The results are instant.
4. This product was only $10!!
1. Wash your feet.
2. Pat them dry with a towel.
3. Pull of cap.
4. Place metal side on the area you would like to get rid of.
5. Use an up and down motion toward the area. (I usually stop when my foot gets smooth.)
6. Put lotion on them so your feet will be soft.
Don't pay attention to the commercial, because they EXAGERATE on how much you will shave off. So, don't be SCURRED when using it. You will only taking off a little bit from your foot. I think everyone should or just even try it. Make sure that you have a soft hand when using this product. Don't go crazy and be rough with your feet. I've seen this product at many different places now so go check your local drug store.
Oh, how I love you PEG EGG! haha..
Well, hopefully this helps someone out there in blog land. You'll be seeing posts like this from me. I'm a real female that has real issues, so I'm not afraid to let you know. Ya dig? Plus, I like helping people too. *smiles*
Hope all of you have a blessed week!
Questions, comments, concerns, 2 cents?? Feel free to hit me up!

So, I was watching one of POWPOWBABY'S latest tutorials and she said that her little sister went to Mikey D's and got a Hello Kitty watch. If you haven't seen her youtube videos, she does amazing make-up tutorials. Go check her out! Anyhoo, I had to go see what all this watch hype was about. So, of course I went to Mickey D's and got a watch. They are too cute. I know the food is EVIL, but I had to get the watch. haha.. I might just go there to collect all the watches, because I'm wondering if the whole Sanrio characters are featured. Do you have any idea? I haven't had a Happy Meal in years and they used to be so cheap. I was thinking to myself PINKEY SWEAR it's almost 5 bucks now? UH UH.. I got HI-C, because I rarely drink soda now and that tasted like straight sugar water. HOLY HOT BOOGERS!
Aren't they cute?
Here is what I got...

Well, I was bored and decided to use my new palletes. I hope you like it and here is what I came up with.
I used pink, purple, and blue. I'll be doing more looks with my Hello Kitty goodies soon.
I need to give you blog heads and youtube gurus some props. The whole posting process takes a minute to do. I'm starting to understand all that yall do.
Hope yall are keepin warm!

Whud it do, blog heads?
So, I had to pick up some stuff at Wally World and decided to pick this up. I saw this commercial a minute ago and wanted to see what this hype was about. This mascara claims to lengthen your lashes.
1. Lengthened my lashes.
2. The packaging was different and chique.
3. The eyelash applicator is long and small enough to get to your lashes near the inner part of your eye.
1. This mascara only fits one purpose.
2. The packaging is long and may not fit in a small make-up bag.
If you are like me and need a mascara to thicken your lashes, then you'll need to use another type of mascara to do that job. I'd put on another coat of a mascara that thickens on top. I think I won't purchase this mascara again, because I'd rather have ONE mascara that lengthens and thickens at the same time.
Then again, if your BALLIN ON A BUDGET go ahead and cop this mascara. At least it will lengthen your lashes and the packaging is cute. If your not then save a couple of extra dollas to get a better mascara.

So, you could probably tell from the title of this blog, but I saw the movie. OHEMGEE! I really liked it. It was a cute chick flick. I heard a lot of "Awwws" from other people in the room. I heard about the book a minute ago and was excited that a movie was coming out. Every woman out there can relate to this movie. It really hit home for me too. It made me think about my past and the boys I use to date. I was thinking to myself that the woman characters in the movie are doin the most! I'm not even going to lie, but I've done some dumb lil girl stuff when I was young. Now, that I think of it and if I knew myself back then I would have SLAPPED my head so hard. I'm just glad that I'm SO NOT like that anymore. I would NEVAH EVA wait for a guys phone call like a little puppy and even if he was Columbus Short. haha!
To the females out there: Go see it. You can go see it with your girlies and even your boo la la. He may learn a thing or two from this movie and realize what you may have done.
To the fellas out there: Take your girl/wife/baby mama whateva to go see this. Like I said you may learn a thing or two. Suprise your girl as an early Valentine's treat and take her to go see this. She will appreciate it and thank you for it. TRUST!
Well, I hope you are having a fabulous weekend.
Take care and Stay Blessed.

Korn: Right Now
So, I just wanted to give you all a little update. The question you all probably want answered is "Does it work?" Well, for me I think that it's starting to work. My skin isn't bad or anything, but I seem to have pimples around my cheek area. I have tried many products and this was my last hope. I can't afford to be spending an arm and a leg for acne products, because they are not cheap. Feel me? So, I see that my skin is getting better. The acne is starting to minimize on my cheeks. YAY! My bestfriend even commented that my skin looks better. I thought to myself finally, because I should have acne issues in highschool and not now. Well, I guess everything happens for a reason and it's getting minimized. YAY! This kit advises you to use it once or twice a day. I have been using it once and it has been okay for me. So, its all on you what you'd like to do.
1. The packaging is handy, because each product has it's own area.
2. A little goes a long way so you will have enough for the 30 days.
3. I'm seeing results and it's only week two.
4. The box said it was a $60 and it was only $30. Good deal, yeah?
1. If you don't wait for each product to dry then your skin will start to sting. So, ladies and gents be patient! Let the product set on your face.
2. A picture or two could have been included in the packaging of people that saw results.
**This kit can be found at Bath and Body Works**
I will update you again in two more weeks. Maybe I'll even show you how my cheeks look.
Have a good night and good luck!
Take care and God Bless.
Bored? Want to collect something new? Love make-up? Want something new to read?
Well, if you answered yes to one of the following above, all of you should really check out Bobby Brown Makeup Manuel. I came across this book when I went Barns N Noble. I was like I'll just check it out and see what information this book has. Bobby Brown, really explains everything from your face to makeup application. So, since I'm getting really into makeup I decided to start collecting makeup books.
1. I like the fact that this book is hard back, so it can be in my collection for years to come.
2. I like that Bobby Brown really explained each chapter in detail.
3. I LOVE the pictures, because I'm more of a visual learner. If I see something then I can pick it up faster and the pictures help me with that.
4. I LOVE how Bobby Brown made this book for all different levels to beginners and MUAs.
1. I wish the book was longer. haha.. I wanted to learn more.
Wow, I only have one dislike. That is DOPE SAUCE!
Here are some pictures, just incase you are interested.
Did you know that MAC was founded by two white guys from Canada?? I was like hmmmm.. right on.. =] Well, I hope like this book.
Take care and God Bless!

Here is my take on the Flirt Cosmetics Pallette. I purchased this in December 08 at Kohls.
Here is what the Pallette looks like closed.
Here is what it looks like opened.
I'm not sure if they still have this at Kohls, but you can check. If you don't know what a Kohls is, it's similar to a Ross or TJMAXX.
1. The colors last all day, but don't forget to have on your handy dandy e/s base.
2. The colors are easy to blend.
3. If you are starting out with make-up or don't want to pay an arm and a leg for e/s then this pallette is for you.
1. Some of the e/s can slip out of place. (All of them aren't glued into the plastic.)
2. There is a little bit of fall out.
3. The packaging isn't that sturdy, because its plastic. So, if you plan on traveling with this pallette I suggest you put the shadows in another pallette. (MAC pallette, etc.)
FYI: I did a look using this pallettee in my 9.FIVE post.
Now, I need to get on the rest of my day.
Did you guys get any goodies from the Bath and Body Works sale? If you did then YAY, but if you didn't the sale ended last Sunday. Well, I didn't know about it until I watched one of Lepooke's haul videos on youtube. If you haven't checked her out, you should. She has some DOPE SAUCE videos. Anyhoo, when I heard they were having 75% off and their make-up was 90% off I had to think twice. I didn't really want to get anything, because I'm saving my money for the Hello Kitty MAC collection. Then I thought to myself you can't beat deals like that. So, I decided to check it out. I got a few things.
I wanted to get some body sprays and anti-bacterial hand soap. Then I got a few lip stuffz. The make-up was practically gone, but I'm glad I got a few things. I'm not really a lip product kind of woman, but I wanted to try these out because the packaging was cute and they weren't expensive. Then I came across their "Anti-Acne Starter Kit". I am still working on my dream of having flawless skin. Hopefully, this works because having acne in my twenties is not the BIDNASS! I think I'll do a review on it too. Just incase you loves out there have an acne issue too. I'm praying that this works for my sensitive skin.
All the stuff I got :
The Lip products
The "Anti-Acne Starter Kit"
Hope all of you purchased some goodies too. *smiles*
I hope everyone is having a fabulous Wednesday!
Anyhoo, I haven't been wearing make-up lately. Well, I have but it has been my everyday look. You know blush, eyeliner, mascara, and gloss. You females feel me? Then I started feeling bad, because all of this make-up is just sitting there and catching dust. So, I found a reason to wear make-up yesterday. My bff and I decided to have dinner together. We haven't seen each other in months and we haven't exchanged Christmas gifts. I decided to go pretty casual with my ensemble, but I tried something different with my eyes.
I was looking in my closet yesterday and I realized that I haven't used my JORDANS in such a long time. So, a thought went into my head that I should use them. Plus, it was sunny outside and I was not about to use them if it was raining. TRUST THAT! The Jordans were white, light blue, black, and gray. I decided to use light blue, greenish blue, black and gray. I used my new Flirt Cosmetics pallette. I'm pretty much diggin' it.
So, here is what I came up with.
Here is another picture, but with both eyes.
Hope you all dig it. Tell me what you think.
One more thing..
Here is what my bff got me for Christmas 08. Just incase you were wondering. *smiles* All of you and yo mama have probably seen these, but just incase you haven't here they are. YAY another traveling set of brushes. I love them too, because they are green.
One of my favorite brushes the 187SE. Sorry, it's kind of blurry but yall get the picture.
I'll be posting a few more posts today. So, watch out for that.

**This is a short movie review**
Have you seen Gran Torino yet? If you haven't you need to see it! OHEMGEE! I think this is the best movie I have seen so far for 09. Clint Eastwood did an AMAZING job! This movie made me cry and laugh at the same time. It made me happy to see Asians portrayed in a movie.
I remember I took a media class a couple of years ago and we discussed how Asians aren't really seen in the media. Now, they are coming up and getting to be seen. That is such a beautiful thing to see.
I loved how realistic that movie was and I liked how the Hmong culture was shown. They didn't just touch the surface of their culture, but it was more in depth. I even learned something new too. I didn't know Hmong people originated from Thailand, Laos, and China. I think the main Hmong actor and actress did a great job. This movie is great for men and women. Ladies, you can ask your boo la la if he wants to see it. *smiles* I saw a lot of men in the movie theatre with their loves.
At the end, it was total waterworks for me. Thank goodness my eyeliner on my waterline didn't smudge. Thanks to good ol' MAC for that. =p
Now, I can't wait for this movie to come out on HD. I hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did.
Happy movie watching and have a blessed day.
Come back and look for upcoming make-up/fashion posts. *smiles*
Wednesday, January 21, 2009
This will be one of my random posts.
Have any of you seen the latest skittles commercial? Well, if you haven't an Asian and Filipino man are on there. I had to do a double take when I saw it. (You know when you have to look at something twice.) I wasn't paying attention until I heard something familiar to me.
I thought it was a pretty DOPE SAUCE commercial. It feels good to have the media aknowledge an Asian and Filipino man.
If you haven't seen it you should go check it out. MOS DEF!

Let's start with the introduction, shall we? Well, I initially wanted to start this blogspot, because I have been INSPIRED. I have been a youtube lurker for sometime now. I started watching different videos here and there. Then, I discovered the FABULOUS make-up world. I found it amazing and addicting at the same time. heehee.. Honestly, I never knew about make-up until I started watching youtube. Nobody, in my family ever taught me how to put make-up on. I learned from two friends how to do the basics, but never in such detail as youtube. So, I learned how to do everything on my own. *POPS MY COLLAR* I started doing my make-up at age TWENTY1. Holy smokers, can you believe it? You can say I was a late blummer with this make-up thang. *smiles* It's all good though, because I have learned SOOO much and have expanded my collection. I have a six piece plastic container of make-up now and I think I need to get another one. EEEEK.. heehee..
My first love is fashion. I have a PASSION for FASHION. I may not match all the time, know the latest trends off the runway, afford the latest pumps, but I can ROCK and PUT together a FABULOUS ENSEMBLE!
So, on my blog you'll see a lot of make-up and fashion posts. You'll see haulage and reviews from el cheapo thangs to the expensive thangs. I'm thinking of adding some specific category related posts too when I get more comfortable with this blogspot bidnass. I don't know if I'll be discussing my personal life on here, because I don't know if I'm ready to lay my personal bidnass out there. You feel me?!? Hopefully, this blog is helpful to someone who doesn't know about make-up or fashion. Someone, who is just bored and decides to surf the net to get out of their bordem. Or even maybe someone who is involved in the make-up or fashion world and wants a gain more knowledge or learn something new. Hopefully, something does come out of this, because I'd like to learn more from you, you, and uhh you too. *smiles*
Unfortunately, I won't be doing any youtube videos, because I have NO clue how to put videos on there. I'll just explain and put pictures on here for your viewing pleasure. So, I want to give a BIG UPS and THANKS BUNCHES to my favorite make-up gurus. All of you have inspired me and I love watching your videos. Thank you for responding to my comments, even though I just said a simple "thank you". All of you have made me believe I can look FIERCE wearing make-up. So, thank you again and keep doing FABULOUS work! If yall haven't checked these FABULOUS people out then you should. GO GO GO... *smiles*
Enough, of blabbing about myself. I got up around 7 a.m. to watch the festivites going on for the Inauguration. It was just amazing to watch and see what goes on during this time. It felt like the world was coming together to celebrate this special day. I got really emotional when I saw President Obama take his seat during the introductions of the VIPS. I loved how even though everyone and their mama is a different religion they brought God into it. The power of prayer is strong and amazing. Michelle, Malia, and Sasha looked fierce in their ensembles. I have the utmost faith in our President, but there is a tiny bit inside of me that is a little skeptical. I just really want to see some change. I hope that all our soilders are taken out of the middle east. I hope that our economy gets better, because too many people have been effected. I could go on and on. heehee.. With all that said, I'm still very excited to see some change. YES WE CAN!
