February Favorites


I've never done monthly faves but there has been a few products I've been using a lot I would just like to share
1. MAC Complete Comfort Cream - this has greatly improved my skin. If you have dry skin, give this a try
2. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - full coverage, 15 hours, love it
3. MAC CCB in Madly Magenta - love the color
4. NARS Deep Throat - alone, this doesn't work but on top of Madly Magenta, looks wonderful
5. Viva Glam Gaga 2 l/s - such a pretty nude
6. Viva Glam Gaga 2 l/g - perfect topping to the l/g
7. MAC Cushy Cremestick - keeps me from looking dead with my nude lips
8. MAC Sketch e/s - mainly use this for daytime smokey eyes
9. MAC Plumage e/s - my new favorite love. Have been addicted to using this for smokey eyes paired with Carbon.

That's all folks. Off to study =/ ugh
Till next month

30 Day Challenge - Day 28

Day 28 — Your favorite drink
Long Island Iced Tea

I was trying to think of something non-alcoholic but all I drink is water and rarely juice. I'm not really a drinker but sometimes when I'm out with the girls we always tend to get Long Islands, i dont know why but it's always that. In the picture above, they were blue that night & matched my dress lol

Berry Love

So today I went to my school's library to work on a 4 page paper. I had no intention to do my makeup because, well its the library, but I was bored earlier & decided to do something simple. Nothing on my eyes because the right one is still in pain, so I opted for my MUFE HD Blush in Innuendo.



The only thing I dislike about this blush is the packaging. It's a pump and not even a half a pump will give you too much. & then when I use the stippling brush, the color isnt evenly distributed on the brush. If any of you have this, please let me know how you use it.
On my lips is NYX Narcissus with MAC Budding Romance l/g on top
Anyway, off to finish the rest of this paper! Oh joy -__-

30 Day Challenge - Day 27

Day 27 — Your favorite skincare product

I was a little unsure about buying a MAC Skincare product being that MAC specializes in makeup. It's like going to IHOP for their dinner, they don't really specialize in it so it won't be AMAZING like their breakfast. Anyway, I took the plunge after reading Temptalia's review man oh man I may say my skin sucks but this cream has made it IMPROVE! The redness has gone down, my skin tone is more even, and I can finally sleep in late before class and not put on any makeup. I save makeup for the weekends now since I'm trying to improve my skin. If you have dry skin like me, definately give this a shot.

Time to unwind...

Last night, me and my coworker Aneesah met up with her friends at TGIF for some dinner & drinks
Me & Aneesah
My yummy strawberry mango frozen margarita
It was a great way to just unwind for the night and destress from the week. As for my makeup, its the usual Plumage and Carbon, only this time with UD Half Baked on lid.
Also, lately my right eye has been having a sharp pain. It feels like someone just took and knife and decided to just twist it and cut my eye. After the pain went down, I started disinfecting my makeup thanks to my lovely friend Liz (check out her blog here). I disinfected all my eye products with alcohol & since I'm staying in tonight I'm giving my eyes a break. If any of you girls ever experience irritation with your makeup, DISINFECT! Thanks again Liz for the advice =)
xoxo Have a fabulous weekend

30 Day Challenge - Day 26

Day 26 — An Item from your wishlist

I've read so many good reviews about this. My skin seriously SUCKS, well the MAC Complete comfort cream has improved it but my dam pores and acne scars just will never seem to go away. I'm dying to buy this to better my skin.

Back in July, I bought Fresh Brew l/s with Fashion Whim l/g to create my perfect nude lip. I was obsessed with it. The same day I bought it I was rushing to work, ran over them, lost them, and found them at night. Then the day of the VV Prerelease party, rushing once again I lost Fresh Brew.

30 Day Challenge - Day 23

Day 23 — Place where you want to live
First, before I do this I was very happy with the comments on my last post. I even showed my little sister and she was like Awww lol. Thanks for such nice comments =D
Anyway, onto today, I would love to live in Miami, Florida
I went two summers ago but all the pix are on my old laptop that crashed =/
Miami is perfect because I wouldnt worry about being too far from my family by plane, I'll be by the beach, and no worrying about snow or earthquakes either. Maybe when I get a stable job, I can save up and start a family over there.

Day 22 — What makes you happy







My little sister aka my mini me aka Alyssia. I love my little sister so so much. We spend a lot of time together. I spoil her like crazy. Me and her are a lot closer than my older sister, but me and my older sis are getting closer now. I think me and lissy get along so well because we are the youngest and I'm a little kid at heart. We also have a YT together (youtube.com/lissyandkendra) We havent made vids in over a year but we have a few of our crazy times we have together. This is our most popular video with over 30,000 views

30 Day Challenge - Day 21

Day 21 — Your favorite lip stick
MAC I Like It Like That

This is my absolute favorite lipstick. Pink lippies are my favorite and I love "I Like it Like That" because it is the perfect pink I can wear during the day. It's just the right shade. This is limited edition and came out with In The Groove.

All Straightened Out

So I have a MAJOR obsession with curly hair but since I've kept it curly for the last few months, I decided to go back to straight today for some change.




What do you think? This is also my FOTD which is the same as yesterday because I'm still obsessing over Plumage and Gaga, only difference is today I am wearing UD Naked on the lid.
Hope you all had a good weekend.
xoxo Kendra

30 Day Challenge - Day 20

Day 20 — Your favorite mascara

MAC Studio Fix Lash is AMAZING! I got my first MAC makeover back in January and the MUA used this. When she first applied it, she wanted to try a different one because my lashes are already long and curly and my lashes looked like falsies, but I loved the results and kept it. This mascara is BOMB, even though I still think all mascaras are the same lol

30 Day Challenge - Day 19

Day 19 — Your favorite look from a beauty guru

Jlovesmac1 - My typical smokey eye
This is how I learned to do the smokey eye. She makes it so easy & I love how she used dark blue and then some black to make it smokey, as oppose to putting all black and looking like you got punched in the face lol. I also learned from this that I can do so many other smokey eye combos with a dark color. And plus, she's hilarious to watch. I swear by this way when doing my smokey eyes!
xoxo Kendra

In love with plumage






Plumage has been on my must have list for forever and I finally b2med for it. I played in it today and OMG I AM IN LOVE! This is gorgeous! I am wearing it in outer v and carbon in the inner v. I paired it with a silver color on the lid but i am dying to try it with blues and teals. This is my new favorite eyeshadow. On my lips are Viva glam gaga 2 l/s & l/g
Sorry for such a short post but I was so in love with this color I had to share. I'm on my way out the door so catch you all later
xoxo Kay & happy saturday

Viva Glam Gaga 2


First thing this morning, I went to MAC and got my hands on Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick & lipglass.

I also B2Md for Plumage, I cant wait to use it in a smokey eye. I've heard some complaints on how its hard to blend, but I've seen Leina use it in her videos and it looked really nice.
& here's me in VG2



I LOVE it =) Good job Gaga & MAC. This is a nice nude for darker skin tones as well, which I was worried about. Also, you may need a liner to bring out the color. On my cheeks, the MUA put Raizin blush on me but I was already wearing Madly Magenta with Deep Throat. This mix is gorgeous. Raizin is next on my list to get.
Happy Friday. Can't wait to see more of you with VG2.
