First Video of Requested Shout Outs

So I uploaded my first video of requested shoutouts and I wonder how what type of responses I am going to get about it.
I even decided to disable the rating section on the video, because I don't really want to know what people overall feel like rating it as.

I personally don't really like watching those type of videos, just because I think they can be boring at times. I do about half the time check out the channels that are talked about.

If it is a company or make up line, I will always look into it. Just to see what they have to offer as well as what their prices are like. I mean I do not know every single line out there, and it's always good to know what else there is.

Overall, I know I should be feeling good that I did the video, since I appeased the requests. I just don't want to feel obligated in doing videos like that all the time. I really have intentions to share in a different video a few channels that I actually enjoy watching. Guess I'm gonna have to wait and see what happens after this one!!!!

Attempting Project 5 Pan

So after much thought, plus tallying up my overall money spent on my newest addiction (i.e. Make up). And yes my total is enough so that Joe turn around and build his own master computer with some of the most expensive parts to do it as well!

Yeah, ha ha I kinda went hog wild when he said I could get what I want, as long as he would be able to get his computer afterwards. So needless to say, he is a very happy camper.

Starting today, I will be attempting to follow through with Project 5 Pan. I'm pretty sure if you are into make up, you will have an idea of what Project 5 Pan is. But if you don't know what that is, then I suppose I can explain.

Project 5 Pan (which can also be turned into Project 10 Pan) forces make up collectors/addicts to choose 5 (or 10) beauty products. It can range from any type, but you are not allowed to purchase any other make up products until you have finished your selected items. Which if you think about it, is good because it's bad to sit there and purchase tons of product and then NEVER use it!
I mean already I have tons of stuff and I don't at at all use it! And like all make up addicts know, make up has an expiration. So it is seems silly to collect a bunch of stuff, not use it and let it go BAD!!! Uhhh what a waste on MONEY!!!

Thus I have my chosen 5 products (with additional random beauty stuff that is almost done anyways). And they include the following:

MAC Frost Lipstick in Lame
Clinique Full Potential Lip Gloss in Beach Bunny
MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder
Clinique Double Lash Mascara in Black
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Face Primer

My almost empties that I'm throwing into the mix include:

MAC e/s in Shroom
MAC Bronzer in Bronze

My random other beauty products that I'm throwing into the mix are:

Victoria Secret Perfume in Sexy Little Thing
Eye Make up Remover by Target

Overall, I think it will be a challenge for me not to want to buy stuff. I have given myself two ways in which I can buy something (besides getting stuff for any give aways or contests I decide to have).
The first is with my upcoming journey home to the states in May, I know I will be hitting up the MALLS! I'm so excited about that! And for those of you who don't know me, I worked in retail on and off since I got out of college back in 2004. So I was always stuck in malls, it got to the point where I hated to go shopping on my off days. Yet, I can't wait to walk into one. And hear the mill of people walking and talking. To walk into a MAC store (even though I can't buy anything) and see all the lights and amazing colors on the display! I'm so excited!!!
But anyways my point in rambling is if there is something I absolutely have to get (if any of my basics run out or if there is something that I just can't walk away from) I will get it.

Apparently brushes don't count against me so, I might pick up one or two. Especially if I make a trip to CCO (which I have never been). But making a trip down to the outlets will be necessary cause I love Reebok sports wear for working out in. And I totally need some things from there!!!

Second way I purchase beauty stuff is...well I can't quite share that yet! But I will be able to soon :)

So for now it's trying to through the urge to buy and using what I have in my 7 drawer stand!!! he he

I think I should do a collection video soon, just so everyone can see what I have, which has caused me to make the Project 5 Pan decision.

Mail Call: Revlon ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad in Berry Bloom

So I went to my PO Box the other day and again was pleasantly surprised to find my Giveaway winning package from Miss Kelley AKA PhatGirlzRule.

As you can guess, I really like watching her channel, considering I have gotten two different items from her!!! See this is why I recommend checking her out, when she does reviews on make up products. She normally gets two of whatever she is talking about and offers one to her subscribers. You end up just having to answer a question that she poses in the review video and BAM, the item is yours!!!!

I won, Revlon's Color Stay Eyeshadow Quad in Berry Bloom, which is pretty cool. I love my Revlon Color Stay Foundation, but hadn't considered their eye products. Boy, do I really need to reconsider it!!! he he

The colors overall are pretty pigmented for a drugstore brand, and they will look great on any eye color. For some odd reason I have been noticing, as of recent, that Pinks/Berry shadows really pop on my skin tone. I don't know if it's because I'm olive tone, or if it's my brown eyes. But every time I wear shadows in that color selection, I always get a compliment or two.

As part of getting the freebie eyeshadow, Kelley requested my own review of the product as well as a look created using it. I plan on doing two, just to challenge myself more (I figure I could use the practice).

I do use all four colors from the Quad in this first created look, it's a smokey berry pink/purple. I paired it up with soft pink cheeks using Mayra's Cosmetics Blush Petunia's Touch. And a nudeish lip

I'm thinking Revlon has a good line with their Color Stay Products, tell will only tell. I used two different eye bases for this look. I am considering trying a look without any base and see how long the product lasts (without creasing or smudging).

I will keep you updated with my thoughts and eventually review of the item!!! Thanks again Momma Kelley!!!

Vivian Made an Appearance the Other Night

So after a very very long stressful week, I was finally able to have the free time I have so desperately been needing. And finally made my official 100 Subscriber contest video, which I have to say has been the most interesting look I have done so far.

I think it was having my new colored contacts that made me decide to do something out of my norm for make up, and thus Vivian had a "new look".

True, I have always gone for a darker look when I have "dressed up". But adding the colored contacts, just give me the push I needed to go out of my comfortable look into something completely different!

And I just felt the look, the idea of having that Alter-Ego was perfect theme for my 100 subscriber contest. I mean it allows anyone to "dress up" or do make up and be someone else. Seriously who doesn't love the idea of being someone else just for one evening? I have so much fun being "Vivian" and I think Joe hopes she will come back very soon.

I do plan on doing a tutorial recreating a wearable Vivian Look, more than likely focusing on the eyes and a light contour. Just because the way I applied the colors was alot different compare to how I normally apply. Overall, it seems like I changed up everything for Vivian.


I'm really excited about my contest, now that it is up and running. The only thing I haven't been able to do yet, is film the prizes video. Waiting on getting stuff in the mail is such a pain in the A$$!!!! Especially when certain companies have overall huge sales and for whatever reason the whole shipping out process takes longer that I like. And then the mail itself takes forever. I just want the stuff here already so I can show it off, and then package it up and wait to announce the winner.

Well more thank likely Vivian will be announcing the winner, it only seems appropriate. If she starts something, she should finish it! Though I do notice she is a bit of a B#tch, so she could always make more work for me. ha ha

Until next time!

Mail Call: I Luv My New Purse

I Luv my New Purse!!
So when I went to my po box, I had an awesome surprise!
About a week or so ago I had posted a video of my other collection,
my awesome purses! Ha Ha, to my girl Kelley's channel.

If you haven't checked out the video of me showing off my new baby,you so should! But also I recommend checking out my girl's channel as well.
Kelley aka PhatGirlzRule is a positive BBW who has all types of videos,anything from make up tutorials, reviews on beauty products,giveaways (cause she feels everyone deserves something), and vlogging about her life as a BBW.

I totally respect and admire Kelley. It is far and few between that you get to"meet" someone who is so kind, determined and dedicated to getting it out tothe world that it is okay to be a BBW. And I'm so happy to have found her channel and gotten to known her fromher videos (as well as personal messages)!

Link to Kelley's channel:

So yeah, I got an awesome sparkly (cause every girl has to have something shiny) clutch style purse. It can be a shoulder evening bagor a regular clutch (cause the straps come off). If I don't rock it at an Air Force Ball, when I head to San Diego to visit family, I'm totally taking it out on a night on the town!

That's it from me, I just wanted to put it out there!
Thank you Momma Kelley :)

Sunday...Chillax day

Random Sunday Thoughts

So today was a semi-productive day in regards to getting a few things done around my own house (ie cleaning). Did a few baby shower things (picked up a few things I will need to make the food). Picked up some fun beauty wants while at the exchange and pending on what I think I will make sure to do a review on the items.

Products purchased:
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation in 200 Nude
Covergirl Translucent Loose Powder in 105 Light
Covergirl Liquid Liner in Black
Cosmetic Sponge pack in squares 24 pack
Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant in Powder

I also was able to upload some videos onto my channel, which is great considering I had a major event occur (ie 100 subbies on my channel). So I have to come up with an idea for my 100 subscriber contest! I think I might have to seek the advice of a few friends who don't know I have a YouTube channel, just to get an idea of what they think would be interesting to learn/watch.

On a side note, I was so disappointed when I was at the Exchange today, they had been carrying the mini waxing kit (pre-made wax strip kit) by Sally Hansen. And apparently they are no longer going to be carrying them now!!!! OMG!!!! That was probably one of the few things the Exchange actually carried that I liked, love and need!!!! GRRR to you AAFES!!! The closest place I can buy that from is the Exchange an hr & 1/2 ride (one way) besides try to get it online. I seriously just hate how when it's stuff I need (more than want) it gets taken away from me!!!! And the stuff I don't necessarily need, they make sure to get my attention with it.

Thus explaining why my random beauty products purchase today, the Covergirl was on sale for 30 % off. Revlon was also 30% off, and of course a few others that I didn't get (ie Almay for 30%, Loreal for 25%, Maybelline for 25%). Evil, Evil AAFES, trying to make this make up addict want to pull her hair out!

Anyways it's late, I edited my second request tutorial (from one of my younger subbies). I rocked the look all day today, and I know it caught a few stares! Whatever Joe, thought it was cute and his opinion is what matters most. :)

I think it's interesting that the only requests I have gotten so far are from high schoolers, nothing at all wrong with that. Just something interesting to note.

Until another time!!!
