Hauls and reviews! :D
I recently went to the mall, going into Aeropostale, looking for clothes, and instead bought some lip stuff! ;) I also went to Target, and got some cream eye liners and a lip cream. Here are the things that I got from Target:

 I purchased a Wet n' Wild Mega Last Lip Cream in I Can Bare It. In another post (Target Haul!) I bought a bright red Mega Last Lip Cream, and LOVED it, so I was excited to get this milk-chocolaty-nude color. (I love the Mega Lasts because they come on as a cream, and dry as a VERY moisturizing matte, and they last FOREVER!)
 I Can Bare It on my lips.
 I also got 2 cream eye liners from Elf.
 They both came with handy little applicators. :)
 It was kind of funny, when I opened the caps, the underside of the caps were different! ^-^
 Here they are swatched. The first color is Black and the second is Midnight. They look very similar, except that Midnight has a blue tinge to it. (These liners are also VERY long lasting!)
 Aeropostale haul!
 The first thing I got there was a GORGEOUS sparkly pink lipgloss in Strawberry.
 The second thing was a stick of 6 different sparkly lipglosses.
 They each open with a nice little applicator too. :)
 The pink one.

 The orange one.

 The yellow one.

 The green one.

 The blue one.
 The applicator gets longer and longer! ^-^
 And the purple one. You may not see the difference in the glosses in the pictures, but in real life they are all slightly different. My 2 favorites were the orange one and the purple one. These little guys are AWESOME for travel also! :)
 The last thing I got at Aero was a Lip Crayon in Pineapple.
 I expected it to be more of a neon orange-as it looked-but it came on as an orangy-coral color. The reason I bought it was because I wanted a bright orange....but that is not what I got....but I still LOVE that coral color!
My whole haul! <3
Hope you enjoyed my little haul! :)
Tomorrow, I will be going to Sephora, and instead of doing a makeup look-I may be doing another review. Just a heads up! :o)
See ya later! <Lucy

Bittersweet! ;)
This colorful look is inspired by chocolate with a sweet center! ^-^
I love the combo of blue and purple, so I wanted to make it bright. :) When I put the purple and blue on, I thought that if I added some brown, the look would sort of look like sweet-centered chocolate! (YUM ^-^). The look:

The tutorial:
 I primed with my Elf Primer in Sheer.

 To start the color, I picked up a MAC semi-matte purple with my IL MAKIAGE Fluff Brush.
 I put the purple on the lid.
 I next took the darker of the 2 aqua blues in the Elf 100 Color Palette with my Elf Eye Blending Brush.
 I put the aqua in the crease, and above it.
 I also made a sort of thick wing shape-thing..... :)
 Then, taking the Fluff Brush again, I picked up the darkest brown from the Color Workshop Neutral Palette. 
 I put it in the crease only.
 What it should look like.
 For mascara I used Cover Girl Lashblast Fusion Mascara in Black/Brown.

 For a sparkly blush, I used a MAC sparkly mint color. (And I only dusted it on, because I didn't want too much sparkle on my cheeks.) ;)
 To start the lips, I took a shimmery lavender MAC eye shadow.
 And I applied it on my lips with my finger.

 I finished the lips by topping the shadow with a MAC sparkly lavender lipgloss tester.
The finished lips.
The finished look:
I hope you liked this sweet look! ^-^ <Lucy

Classical Drama :)
Today, I did another pretty dramatic look. I wanted to do the dark lips again! :)> I mixed classic dramatic colors in with a pop of gold shadow on the eyes for a modern twist, and a classic red lip. Here is the look:

This look didn't come out how I had wanted it to, but I still decided to post it with a tutorial:
 First, I primed with my Elf Primer in Alabaster.

 Next, I picked up some of the beige color that is the bottom color in the first row in the Elf 100 Color Palette with my Mary Kay Eye Blending Brush.
 I swept on the beige for a base color.
I then picked up the first color in the yellow section in the 100 Color with my IL MAKIAGE Fluff Brush.
 And swept it on the lid, and blended some of it in the crease.
 Next, I took the gold color below the one used before with the same brush.
 I softened up the bright gold with the other gold.
 Then I picked up a MAC bitter-chocolate brown with a contour brush.
 I patted the color on the outer part of the lid.
 And blended it up to the brow bone, and very slightly blended it in.
 For mascara, I used Elf's Lengthening and Defining Mascara in Black.

 For blush, I used the only reddish eye shadow from The 100 Color Palette.
 To start the lips, I took out my L'Oreal Infallible 6HR Lip Liner in Red/Wine.
 I began lining at the cupid's bow.
 I thickened the line, and lined all around.
 Then I filled in.
 I next got out my Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie in Goodness Grapecious.

And I topped the liner.

I hope you liked this dramatic look! (If you have any requests or ideas, just let me know!) <Lucy
