Vegas Update

Some quick updates. I'm currently in Las Vegas and experiencing some massive heat, and editing some pictures for this blog as well. Vegas is really not my type of place to stay, I don't really like it here. I like travel, I don't like resorts. I travel to learn and see, not to relax and party. Usually when I travel I go to European and Asian countries, I love Austria and Germany, even Belgium. I also love to tour around China, Thailand and the such. But most of the hyped up places, like say, Paris, I just don't make much of a connection with. Maybe because there is so much hype, everyone else goes and makes those places jam packed with tourists, and that just makes the experience unpleasant.

Same in North America. I have a problem with Vegas. It is burning hot here in Summer and so much going on. I think for most people, locations around the world are usually a love or hate situation. Vegas, I can see why so many people love, but it just isn't my place. I have never seen this many beautiful people in one place at one time, so many lights, music, parties, gambling, alcohol, beautiful silhouettes, impossible stilettos.. It's like seeing the Seven Deadly Sins come alive in one place. Vegas is where everything shallow meets up and makes a connection. People come here to do and see what they normally can't in their regular lives. I see the point, but since I'm never going to do those things in the first place, I like but don't love here.

My Current Mani & Pedi

Ah, how I missed doing my nails, and I do them in NO TIME AT ALL. I'm gifted at doing French I'm guess, it takes me no time and no tools. Though I didn't do a real French lol. I'll show you. Pedi first, because everyone seems to love them so much!!

Clinique Black Honey Look

Here is a quick look with all the colours from the quad. Enjoy!

Clinique Black Honey Eyeshadow Quad

I was always intrigued by Clinique's Black Honey lipstick/lipgloss. I'm a sucker for honey. Unfortunately, the lip products were all too dark for me, and I'm really not into a reddish tinted lips anyway, I'm always a nude lip person. So when the eyeshadow came out, I was so excited, because I can finally try something from this line.

Clinique's eyeshadows were never really good in my opinion. They have that dry powdery feel, that really looks quite chalky to me. Since they are very powdery, they are VERY easily blended away. If you swatch some on you hands, with gentle rubbing motion, you can completely erase the shadows from your hand, leaving no stain behind at all. If it weren't for the Black Honey concept, I would probably never buy a full sized Clinique quad.

The packaging is beautiful, and it is very chic looking. The back of the palette is transparent, with 4 colours showing that represents the shadow colours inside. Keep in mind those 4 colour blocks are not the real eyeshadow, they are coloured plastic that mimic the colours of the shadows. When you open it, each eyeshadow is rimmed in similar coloured rings.

OPI Skull & Glossbones

I didn't intend to get this colour from the collection at first, because I thought Stranger Tides was so much better. And this is just a wannabe nude version of my beloved Stranger Tides. But I heard SO much hype, how this is the perfect grey, how it is the perfect neutral nude.. I finally caved in and got myself one. Because you just can't have too many neutral nail polishes. (Shakes head ...for the sarcastic effect.)

I don't love it still, but I like it much better now. It is a great neutral for school, work etc, while still has that unique vibe.

Quick Review for MAC Feline

Sorry guys I've ignored you for so long. I'm going to Las Vegas tomorrow, and I had many Summer courses and the such, so I was overwhelmed and really quite busy for the past few months. I'll add some reviews and looks on here tonight, depending on how much time I have, and how crappy my photoshop skills can get. Here is a mini review of MAC Feline Eyepencil.
