ColourPop Swatch – Wild Nothing (Holiday 2016)

swatches-cover

Thursday

Hello friends! I mentioned last time that I bought two of ColourPop’s new Ultra Matte Lips, and today I’ve brought the swatches for the second one I purchased.

This one is Wild Nothing, and according to ColourPop it’s a “dusty plum brown.”

 

 

I can’t really tell a huge difference between Wild Nothing and other pink-brown lippies from ColourPop, but luckily I’m into this kind of shade and I think I can rock it pretty well.

 

 

Thanks for reading, and make sure to check out my other posts too!

A Whole Bouquet of Oopsy Daisies

Thursday

Hello friends! Today I have a rather embarrassing thing to tell you guys. So those of you that post on WordPress will know that WordPress has a “media library” where you can upload pictures to embed in your blog posts.

I’ve been using that feature of WordPress since I started this blog, and since the storage on this media library is limited, I delete old pictures to make space for new ones. Only recently did I realise that when I delete those pictures from the media library, the pictures stop showing up on the posts themselves!

I’m so sorry to those of you that must have been confused because most of my blog posts did not show any pictures. I’m currently in the process of replacing all the pictures – now all pictures on the blog will be embeded from Imgur (hopefully that works out better!)

I’m sorry for the confusion, and I hope to see you guys again soon!

 

Love,

Diane

ColourPop Swatch – Perky (Holiday 2016)

Monday

Hello friends! Recently ColourPop released their 2016 holiday edition products, and I decided to get my hands on two of their new Ultra Matte Lips: Perky and Wild Nothing.

Previous ColourPop Swatches:

Calypso (Fall Edit)

Ouiji

Bumble

Dohee

Today I have the swatch for Perky, which is a “warm tone muted rose.”

 

 

I’ve said this before, but ColourPop lippies are always either too brown or too neon. In this case, Perky is a lot more brown-toned than it looks like in the tube. I’m okay with it, because it’s a gorgeous colour, but I’d describe Perky as more of a “warm pink-brown.”

I do like the formula, but I feel like I can’t really tell too much of a difference between Perky, Wild Nothing, Calypso, and Bumble. Next time I make a purchase from ColourPop I’m going to try to buy a more fun colour to make my collection more fun.

I Visit – Rochester Abandoned Subway

Rochester Subway Cover.jpg

Thursday

Hello friends! I live in the Greater Rochester Area, and one of the coolest things in the City of Rochester is the abandoned subway system. This strip of subway system has become a medium of art for many people in the area, and each wall of the system shows a different facet of the city.

My friends and I headed over to check it out, and I thought it would be a great place to get some cool pictures, and I wanted to share some of the pictures I got that day.

I Watch: Room (2015)

room-movie

Wednesday

Hello friends! A while ago I posted a book review on Emma Donoghue’s novel Room (read the review here), and recently I had the chance to watch the 2015 movie based on the novel with my friends, so I decided to talk about my opinions on the movie today.

I’ll skip the summary of the book/movie since I’ve talked about it in my previous book post.

I don’t want to be one of those annoying people that say “the book was better than the movie,” but in all honesty, I think the movie did a poor job of telling the story of the book.

Room is special in that it is narrated by a five year old whose entire world consisted of a tiny remodeled garden shed before it was expanded into a world where everything is different.

The short voiceover narrations did a mediocre job at recreating the first person point of view of the novel, and I also think the clash between Jack and Ma in their struggle to return to their original worlds – in Ma’s case, outside, and in Jack’s case, Room – was not as emotional and well played out as it could have been. And in a more personal note, the mood that the movie portrayed did not quite match the one I set when reading the book, and my friends’ opinion is that the story was a bit slow.
Is it fair to mention, though, that there are some things that the movie deserves credit for – for instance, the portrayal of Room was spectacular; the silence in between conversations, the claustrophobia of the small space, the darkness that seeps into the corners… And the actors that played the main characters really melted into their characters and their relationship was so natural – just like the relationship between an emotionally unstable young mother and her child.

But while the people were amazing, the story was lacking, which is why I won’t go out of my way to recommend it. I definitely do recommend reading the novel, though, because it’s a great novel that reels you in and gets you emotionally invested in the story.

Coastal Scents 120 Palette Two Swatches – Part I

Monday

Hello friends! I’m so sorry it’s been so long since I last posted! I didn’t mean to just disappear into thin air. It’s been a hectic couple of weeks; I’ve been trying to get ahead with my schoolwork as opposed to catching up with it, and in the process I got a bit behind with blog stuff (ironic, isn’t it?). But I’ve got a couple posts lined up for you guys and I should be back to my regular posting schedule in no time!

 

But babble aside, as you can tell from the title, I’ve brought you some swatches of a eye shadow palette I’ve recently acquired!

It’s the Coastal Scents 120 Palette Two! (That’s a mouthful isn’t it?)

I’m going to be talking a bit about the palette, but if you don’t care about my prattle and would like to skip to the actual swatches, scroll down to the big Swatches heading!
