Dolly Wink no. 2 review// what I've been wearing recently

Hey readers! [very small amount I know orz|||]
I'm at school right now and needing a bit of downtime from working so I thought I'd do another post!

I received the limited edition set of Tsubasa eyelashes because my friend showed me a website called AdamBeauty . If you don't know, they sell their Dolly Wink lashes for a super affordable price. I paid 15ish dollar for a no.2/no.6 set and limited edition eyelash case.  The case is SO useful. I can fit almost all of my lashes in there.

As for the no.2 lashes....well I was sort of disappointed. Maybe I was too used to the stiffer band, but it was quite difficult to put on, and I'd like to say I'm pretty adept at putting lashes on after almost 3 years of using them.

They were however super comfortable because of said flimsy lash band.

BUT I also noticed how much I had to cut to make them fit my eyes. /SOB
So it was kind of a waste.  Oh well.
I will probably not repurchase.
Here's a pic of me wearing the set together when I had a 'gyaru' day out with a friend of mine. A saleslady in Costa Blanca complimented me on my lashes so all was well >w<
I've even had a few girls compliment me when I wear them out clubbing.

Also what do you guys think about the hair style? I tried the twists on the side /mock braids. Kinda hostess-y? I think it'd be good for nights out. A new way to do hair that's not up or down but in-between?

Another thing I've been doing is using lip products again.  Usually because of school and my schedule I just slap on lip balm and go and also because my glosses/lippies are scattered around the house lol...
So I took a go at finding them. It was a fun game of hide and seek and except for my one MAC ltd edition lippy, I think I've found them all!

My favorite go-to has been Etude House's lip tint in red. It moisturizes, isn't sticky at all, delivers a punch of color, and tingles, as it claims it has plumping properties. Since it already has a good color delivery, I like to layer it over my red lipsticks to keep my lips smooth and amp it up a bit. I don't see any plumping when I wear it, but summer or winter, it's one of my favorites to wear when I'm feeling brave.

I might not be able to update as [in]frequently now because school is getting reaaaally crazy aaaaaaaand I got a part time job!

That's right!

I'll be working at Godiva at Metrotown for the holiday season!
Hopefully they like me enough to keep me on for the rest of the year, because that would be great.
I'll start training in the next week or two, but until then, I gotta shop for work outfit. :>

Happy November!

Ahhh I missed blogging about Halloween but that's okay because I had fun despite not going trick-or-treating like I usually do!
[I might be too old, but I can usually pass for younger so I think it's okay. I'm still a kid at heart u___u]

This year I was in school working, but since the teacher had a 'sick' day we decided to catch up on assignments, order pizza, and play Amnesia.  If you don't game a lot or listen to gamers talk, you wouldn't know Amnesia probably since it was released by an indie game studio.

Here's a funny video to explain what it's like to play. :D

I chickened out after the first 5 minutes when things are just moving on their own! Q___Q omg all the guys manned up and played despite being scared. The worst feel is when you turn a corner and one of the monsters is right in front of you. AHHHH
You can't fight/hurt them. You can only run. And you generally run slower than them.

It's so scary and perfect for Halloween!

Recently I've been in a few shoots because a lot of my friends are photographers and they need models. "Models" lol.  SO here are a few pics I especially liked that my friends took!

Also pictured here is Kathy who is the sweetest thing! <3

Next up in a Halloween themed dance that a local anime club was hosting.  It was super fun and really nice to see friends again that I hadn't seen since summer.

I was also in a hair photoshoot because a very close friend of mine was graduating salon school!
It was definitely an experience and I got to have my hair tortured lol but the result was awesome!

Sorry I haven't been blogging lately guys! All my spare time has been going to school!
I'll try to do some more reviews for you guys!
