New Collections Mac Haul

Hey everyone! I have been putting up too many mini Mac hauls on my YouTube Channel  and most of the time i don't think they really warrant a whole video so I decided to just do a Blog Haul! Yey!
So I'll start off with a brush I got. I ordered the 214 short smudger brush online. To be honest I thought it was going to be smaller and a bit more stiff. I want to use it with a soft pencil liner to smudge. I haven't used it yet so no concrete review here just sayin...If you know of a smaller stiffer smudge brush please let me know!
So the next thing I got was from their new Pro Longwear Lipcreme Lipstick Collection. I was really hoping for a really baby pink but there wasn't one :(. I came across the color in Overtime and it was a really nice natural pink so I thought I'd try it out! It is similar to the Satin lipsticks in the flatness of the color. I haven't really tried it out too much but I am excited to! From the swatch on my arm it is harder to rub off than the satin lipsticks. The packaging of this lipstick is even different it is in a long cylinder slimmer tube and is way more matte than their other lipsticks.
Overtime Is The First One In The Line Up
Now the fun stuff! The new Disney Villian collection. It looked so fun I just knew I had to have something from it!! I am a huge fan of nude colors. I just wear them more often and they go with almost everything. I got the Cruella De Vil cremesheen in Innocence, Beware! It is really pretty and compared to Myth obviously the first difference is that it is a Satin and Innocence, Beware! is a cremesheen. Besides the obvious difference I feel if you like Myth, you would lie Innocence, Beware! It has more of a pink tone but it's still really nude and might be one of my favs! It is really pretty and the packaging is fun with Cruella's picture and it is shinier than the average Mac Lipstick!
Heartless Is The First And Innocence Beware Is Second!
 Last but not least is the Lipglass is Devishly Stylish. I really love this color! It is a really nice sparkly pink and would look awesome on top of Innocence, Beware! The packaging is like the average lipglass but with Cruella's picture with a couple of the dalmation puppies!

Wicked Ways is First And Devilishly Stylish Is Second

Here are swatches of all my new toys! :)

Hair Extension Criticism

Ok, where do I start... I have not been criticized very much about this topic (to my face anyways) especially because it is becoming the norm in today's world. But I have noticed that a lot of people have a hard time accepting what they don't understand.

Here are a couple questions I have been asked that I would just like to clear up for all the people who are confused and weirded out about the whole hair extension concept.

1. Why do you wear those "things"?
Answer: I wear them because I feel more confident wearing them. It actually takes me less time to put my hair extensions in my hair than it would be to style my own natural hair.

2. Why don't you just wear your hair short? It's so cute!
Answer: Because my hair is so fine and short, it takes a lot of product, styling and back combing to get my hair to look like I want it to. Therefore, it takes more time to style it. Believe it or not, I don't like to spend much time on my hair in the morning so it is an easy alternative to wear extensions.

3.Why do you want to wear something fake? Doesn't it weird you out?
Answer: Nope it doesn't weird me out. I think of it as a beauty staple. Basically like mascara, eyeliner, lip gloss and foundation. These things all enhance our beauty and are not natural but they make us feel better about ourselves. I feel the same way with extensions! If something is going to make you feel more confident and it's not hurting anybody then go for it!

4.What do guys say when they find out that you wear extensions?
Answer: Ok, where do I start with this one? I have never really had a guy say anything to me about extensions. Most people don't even know I wear extensions and think that I just have long hair. My boyfriend just thinks of it as another girly thing I do and accepts it as a part of my life. Most guys don't understand it and they probably never will. In reality, do guys really understand anything about why we do the things we do? Anywho, back to my point. I don't care what guys or girls think about me wearing extensions. The only thing that matters is that I enjoy them and they make me happy :).

5. Why wear extensions, why don't you just grow out your natural hair?
Answer: I get this question a lot. Most of you who follow my YouTube Channel know that I have thin, fine hair and it is a total frustration to grow! It get's damaged really easily because of how fine it is. I am constantly trimming my hair so it grows out healthily without split ends and breakage. If I just let it go, I would eventually need to chop a lot of breakage off at once and it would be counter productive! I am currently taking extra care of my hair and it has shown to help and it is growing out which I am grateful for! This is something I think a lot of women don't understand because most women have medium to thick hair that grows easily! So when you think your hair is way too thick, just get some layers to thin it out and be grateful! For girls like me, it's really hard just thicken up my hair unless your have extensions!

So those are the most common questions I get asked. I am sorry if you have a problem with it or you think I am fake because of it. My feeling is that if I am fake for wearing hair extensions than every girl who wears makeup in this world is fake too. Makeup is just more accepted.

If you have any more questions, just let me know!

Grow Your Nails!

Keratin - a protein which comes in a variety of forms, all of which are waterproof and durable. It is the principle component of horn, beaks, skin, hair, finger nails feathers and hooves among others.
       While I am almost positive most of you were not blessed with hooves and/or feathers, beaks and horns *YIKES!* I am pretty sure most of the human race has hair, finger nails and skin!

       For some unknown reason, my keratin is not very strong in my hair thus, it is not strong in my nails either...: (
I basically accepted the fact that my nails would just not grow! I was never much of a nail fanatic anyways (You all know my thing is hair) but I've always secretly admired women with nails on the longer side. It is something (along with hair) that most women take for granted!

So I found this product at the drugstore and figured I should just give it a try! I forget how much it was since I bought it a while ago but I have been using it about once a week and it has prevented my nails from chipping and cracking so now they are growing!! I see the white!! Get it...instead of  "I see the light"...Anywho...This product is by L'Oreal and is called Grow Stronger! Nail Treatment.
Now, my nails have always been weak so I can easily bend them in whichever direction. This obviously has been one of the causes of my nail breakage. However, now they are still pliable but noticeably harder!

I didn't follow the directions thoroughly enough, and only have been applying this strengthening treatment once a week under my nail polish. BUT the directions clearly state "To use: Apply 1 or 2 coats to clean,dry bare nails. Apply 1 coat daily for 10 days. After 10 days remove Grow Stronger! and use regularly on your bare nails as a base coat for continued strength." So I have decided to start this Today!!! I'll let you know what I think after 10 days. So that'll be it for now!

Lock Your Doors!

           So...I am absolutely paranoid about leaving any electronics in my car, locking my car doors and locking my house up anytime I step out! So the other day, I brought in my night stands from the car that I had bought off Kijiji (I hope to do a separate post of this). I had just painted these to match my bedroom and I was so excited to finally have them in my house!! As I was walking up the steps to my place I thought to myself "Did I lock my doors?" I quickly corrected myself because I was sure I did! I never leave them unlocked! So I set them up in my room and was very content! It was getting late so I went to bed.

          The next day I go to my car only to see the door ajar! So I thought "Hmm, that's weird, I must not have shut my car door all the way". I didn't think much of it because usually even when that happens the lock still works. So I proceed to open my door and see my bag that was in the back seat on my drivers side seat. I also see my glove box opened and everything poured out of it!! I quickly contacted my boyfriend to see if he had been in my car for anything! He hadn't so there could be only one reason...Somebody saw that I had Ipod and cellphone wires in my car and proceeded to search my car for anything they can get their grubby little hands on! Luckily they didn't find anything because, like I said, I am paranoid about these things. They left no evidence of forced entry so it was evident that it was just my fault for leaving the doors unlocked.

    Even though they didn't take anything, It still left me feeling violated! Literally the ONE time I leave them unlocked!!! There is always a lesson in everything! LOCK YOUR DOORS!!
