[Di]ana & [Wi]nsley's Night Out

 We started the night out by strolling Kmart for goodies. We didn't buy much, but ended taking some pictures, lol.

We thought this packaging was funny with the "vintage" look.

Here's Winsley with the box, rocking her new leather jacket.

 Afterwards we headed to the East Village to eat sushi at May's Place. Here's Winsley with her grub.

Then me...

Lychee Sakeeeee

Pretty stars on the ceiling. (I'm a huge star lover.)

Secret snapshot of the chefs, gotta love 'em stalker skills, hahaha.

Graffiti in the bathroom. -_-

Me with my blingin' scarf. <3

After dinner, we took another stroll and ended up in Walgreens.

Blessue Tissue? LOL

xoxo, Diana

4 in 1

Okay gals, your ready for this? This is gonna be a super long post full of pictures as well as, well, words.
So here goes. . .

First product up for review: EOS Lip Balm

I was very interested in these little balls of moisture when they were first introduced because of their shape. You don't see many lip balms out there that come in this form. The three flavors are Honeysuckle Honeydew, Sweet Mint and Summer Fruit. My favorite out of the three is Sweet Mint. The other two don't smell like the names they were given and so therefore, was a bit of a disappointment. 

They're pretty moisturizing but it might be because of the ball shape but the application was not as precise as I'd like. I don't know why but I feel like they also travel down to the area right under my bottom lip in time. Maybe it's just me but when that happens it makes it seem like I have a very oily chin or maybe that I didn't wipe my mouth after eating. Ew. How unladylike. I do not believe I will be repurchasing these nor will these be the first product I reach for to replenish the moisture in my lips. 

Next up: L'Oreal Go 360° Clean

Okay, so when I bought this cleanser, it wasn't because I wanted it. I just wanted the little scrubber it came with. Yea, that pink thing in the middle. Little silicone scrubbers like this one are available in places like Hong Kong and Taiwan but I have been unable to find them here. '

It's stored right into the bottle!

So on to the cleanser itself, I like it because it leaves me feeling refreshed with a cooling/menthol-y effect. I feel squeaky clean after using it but it does seem to be a bit drying though. 

Next: Lancome Color Fever Gloss

I don't have much to say about this because there's nothing really special. The color payoff is okay. All of them has glitter/shimmer in them and so it can get a bit gritty after a little while on your lips. The first color, Rainbow is showing up clear in the swatch but in the tube it's full of multi-colored glitter. 

And finally, I went to get a manicure yesterday with Di of DiWiMakeup and I love love love love love the color. 

Color: Essie's Mint Candy Apple

Remember when I ranted about the oh so great Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish? Well, here are some pictures from day 3.




But, enough of that, let's move on to better things. Like OPI's Meet you on the Star Ferry:

No flash.

Flash ON.

I know they look like two completely different colors, but that's where the beauty lies. Oh, and the black thing I'm holding is a new scarf I bought from Forever 21. I love sparkly things and knew I had to have this in my collection (I think this is the 20th scarf I own.) Weird that it looks brighter in the picture without flash.

Since my birthday was earlier this month, I went to Sephora to pick up my beauty insider gift. It was a set that contained an eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara.

The eyeshadow color is aspen summit No 23. It has a pearl finish and is pretty pigmented. The picture above was one swipe.

Close up of the texture.

The eyeliner is in #11 Silver green.

One swipe across my hand.

And lastly, the lash plumping mascara. I haven't tried this yet. Maybe I'll take some pictures in the near future.

CoverGirl Lipslicks

So this is a product that I've had for a while and after using it a few times after I first bought it, I stopped using it. I think I stopped because I didn't see anything special and that it didn't really do much for my lips. But lately, I've been using it more as a sort of base underneath my lipstick. It helps the lipstick feel smoother longer and so my lips don't feel so dry after a short while.

I like the texture of the product because it isn't too thick. I used to use Softlips lip balm under lipstick but I felt like it was too greasy and caused the lip color to fade easily. So one day while doing my make up, I decided to give this a try again. I've been using this for a good month or month and a half now.

It looks pink in the tube (in both pictures and in person) but when applied, it's actually clear/colorless so it won't affect the color of your favorite lipstick! It's fairly inexpensive being that it's a drugstore product. I forgot the actual price but I believe it was a couple of bucks and Duane Reade. (I have just been  informed that it was about $7)

I'm not sure if I will repurchase this when I am done. But then again, I don't even remember if I've ever finished a lip product completely.

A lil' bit of err'thang

So here's a quick update about a bunch of random stuff that's been going on.
First off, I would like to rant about a couple of nail products I recently purchased.

After reading a great and promising review in Allure, I decided to try this product out. This claims that one coat is all you need to achieve the color seen in the bottle. It's also supposed to dry within minutes and stay chip free for 5 days.

Although the brush takes some getting used to since it's flat, it's really not a big deal.

This is a picture of day 2 with the polish on:

Yup, I even used a base and top coat. So much for being chip free. And it's not like I did dishes or anything.

Next gem:

Hard as wraps powerful acrylic gel?! This acted as just a normal base/top coat. It applies clear and does dry relatively fast. But wait, there's more. It even bubbles on your nails! Oh joy, just the way I like to finish my manicures. For only $5.99 you can have this special effect! Don't wait, call 1-800-BUBBLES now, and we'll throw in the Insta- Dri polish for FREE!!

Haha, all jokes aside, I really didn't like these products and will probably not be trying more anytime soon.

Now onto the good stuff!


Oh, there's a shot of my nails for the weekend.

Sooo, isn't the packaging gorgeous. I got sucked in and really wanted to get it before it sold out. It's a pale pink with a hint of blue. As a lustre finish, it's sheer so it's easier to control the amount of color you want to apply.

On the lips:

Ya deeeggg? lol

Andddd, lastly, my latest obsession:

Creme Dazzleglass in My Favourite Pink
I love love love this gloss. Too bad I didn't get a picture of it on my lips. Maybe next time. ;p

This was also a very special weekend because I celebrated my 21st birthday yesterday! (Even though the 15th is the real day, lol.) I thought I'd share this picture with you guys...a picture of me and the other writer of this blog! 

I'm on the right, and the pretty ladayyy on the left is my partner in crime. <3

I hope you all had a great weekend! I'm off to celebrate some more since I can now exercise my legal right, hahaha.
