The Best Thing You Can Do...

Hey Guys,
This is kind of a venting post because of some non-youtube related things that have been going on. Just ignore this post if your going to be offended by this. Just really think guys before you say something, you don't know how it could affect them.

Ever hear the saying "If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all" or "treat people as you would want to be treated?" 

Think about these quotes everyday. 

Think before you say something mean to someone.

You never know what a persons life is like, and you never know what could happen from saying one "little" mean thing to them.

Just be cautious and be kind, because being kind is the best thing you can do. 

The same is true reverse, one little nice comment could make someone's day! Try tomorrow to say at least 5 nice things to people in your life. Let people know how much you appreciate them. Sometimes they just need to be reminded.

Your more loved than you could ever imagine. 

I love you all,

For The Love Of The Internet!

Hey Everyone,

Today is not a beauty related post, just letting you know right off the bat. 
Although it still concerns you. You may have seen googles logo today, or maybe you didn't see it because it's blacked out. It's a censor bar.

There are two bills going around congress right now: SOPA and PIPA. I don't consider myself an expert on this at all but basically what it means is that the government is going to censor the internet. 

If you haven't hear about it you can read about it here:

Wikipedia has shut down their site to raise awareness about this:

CNN also has a story on other websites raising awareness:

Who knows my very own blog (not that too many would be concerned) could be changed! If you believe in freedom of speech, and you don't want to be censored on what you can say I hope you will get involved! Other youtubers could change as well! 

Think there's nothing you can do, think again!

*Please ask parents permission first if you are under 18*

1. Educate yourself and others about this issue!

2. Sign the google petition!

3. Encourage others to do the same!

4. Contact your local representatives and make your voice heard! 

Thank you all for reading this blog, I hope you get involved!

I don't like it... (ELF Eyeliner)

Here is another I don't like it post!
This one is on the product: Elf Liquid Eyeliner.

I had been using this product as my liquid liner for probably a year. Once it's dry it stays for about 3-5 hours but starts to fade. That part isn't the problem- it's the application. No wonder I've always hated lining my upper lash line, this product makes it really difficult. You know how people pull their eyelid when they apply eyeliner? I wasn't doing that and working with this EXTREMELY watery formula. It was hard for even really steady handed people. It runs, drips and if you mess up- forget eyeliner for the day!

If you want to try it it's only a dollar but really difficult to apply. 

*Note: The product I am talking about could have changed since I bought mine. When I bought mine it looked like one above and now it's in different packaging.*

I don't like it....

Hey Girls!

I've been kind of MIA recently but I thought I'd make a blog post today, an I don't like it. 
In these posts I'm going to review a product that I don't like that's something you may be considering, usually from a high end brand (don't waste your money!).

This post: MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation.

This foundation is described as a matte, light/medium coverage gel based foundation. I would say the coverage is light and the finish is matte. If you have oily skin and are looking for a natural coverage this might work better for you. MAC makeovers and color matching is free so don't be afraid to try it out and ask for help!

It had the coverage and finish I wanted but I didn't end up liking it. It was really drying to my skin, maybe I just didn't like the gel based formula. It made my skin look like it was dry and peeling. It was also cakey and flakey eeeek!

Most people don't like MAC foundations but I wanted to try it out.
MAC does have a great return policy and I will be returning it. 

I did pick up the interior life palette ( I think it's limited edition so go get your hands on it!) and I love it!
