Maybelline stylish smokes: Amethyst smokes look (all drugstore) // products I regret buying

I recently purchased the maybelline stylish smokes quad because they were on sale for $3.99! super great deal! The amethyst smokes was my favourite among the four kinds. So I decided to make a tutorial using the amethyst smokes quad. The rest of the products I used were all drugstore.
Here is a couple of picture:


Revlon Colorstay Natural tan
Revlon Photoready 010
Maybelline Age rewind double face perfector (light/medium)
Rimmel Natural bronzer
NYC sunny bronzer
Wet n wild blush (sorry i dont know the color)

Loreal decrease primer
Revlon creme illuminance shadow in wild orchids
Maybelline stylish smokes quad: Amethyst smokes
Loreal lineur intense
Annabelle smudgeliner ohmygoth
Maybelline lash blast volume mascara
Maybelline volume express mascara

Maybelline colour sensational Warm me up lipstick

I made a list of a few products that i regret buying over the year. They are simply the products that did not work out for me.

Maybelline mineral powder foundation - gave me dry patches
ELF studio eyeshadow - chalky,powdery, you need to layer this to really get the color
Physicians formula wet/dry baked eyeshadow trio ( I never really liked the physicians formula brand. The only reason why i bought this was because I had a coupon) - poor color payoff
MAC lipglass - too sticky
ELF 2 in 1 conditioning gloss - stickier than the lipglasses, the color comes out chunky, packaging sucks
NYX circe round lipstick - this particular color washes me out
Sally hansen instadry nail polish - it dries too fast thus making application very hard, streaky, creates air bubbles
Loreal nail polish - streaky
EBAY false lashes - It came in 30 pairs (3 box). 1 box was full of lashes that were too thick and dramatic for my liking. I tried a pair and i had to remove them immediately because i looked like a hooker.

If you have any questions for me at all, feel free to ask me on my formspring account aprilrovi. I will gladly answer them :)

trying to wave like a beauty queen lol

Last sunday, JP & I went to the theatre and watched Alice in wonderland. Johnny Depp is his favorite actor. Theatre was pretty empty. The movie was great. Then we went to Joe Fortes seafood restaurant downtown for dinner. Great atmosphere & ambiance. i must say and there was also a piano playing in the background. Service was alright not exceptional and the food was delicious especially their crab cakes! While JP was drinking his beer he felt something hard in his mouth and surprisingly he found a very tiny piece of glass. He wasn't sure if it came from the glass or the cup of soup but whichever it is he was shocked and scared at the same time. He called the attention of our server right away to complain then their manager came to our table to apologize. We ended up getting our dinner for free that night. Anyway here are some of our photos
