Hello everyone! Long time no see. This video features three cute and cozy, warm outfits for the cold weather. I was originally going to have the title say "Winter Outfits" but I know when many of you hear the word "winter" you think of snow and 15-20 degrees, F weather. But where I live, it doesn't snow. During the night, it's usually 30-40 degrees, F. And during the day, it's usually 50-70 degrees, F. So if you don't think these outfits are appropriate for the winter time, please know that the weather where I live doesn't get below 20 degrees, F. c:

I hope all of you like the outfits I styled! Please support my video by liking! & Subscribe for more fashion videos! c:

Let me know in the comments section below which outfit is your favorite! c:

Benefit 'Hello Flawless!' Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation Review

Read about my Journey to finding my perfect foundation!


Before arriving to Sephora, I tweeted, asking if anyone who has sensitive, acne prone, oily skin has tried Benefit's Hello Flawless foundation. Having only eighty-five Twitter followers, I should of known I wouldn't get any responses back, but I tweeted it just in case because I needed any type of response fast. Since no one responded, it was up to me to make a quick decision about this foundation. I walked around Sephora a couple times, checking out different foundations but I kept heading back to Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW Foundation. Without reading any reviews before arriving to Sephora, I decided to purchase it. I believed this foundation could become my main foundation, but I had no idea it would become my favorite. What really made me run to the register to purchase this foundation was when I read how this foundation "helps to protect against environmental stresses". My period and/or stress seems to be the main cause of my break outs. And I hate breaking out, especially when I'm stressed, so when I read this, I was instantly sold. I love everything about this foundation. The name is just so cute, and the packaging is perfect. I love how this foundation has a pump because it doesn't create a mess and dispenses the perfect amount. All I need is two pumps and I'm good to go. I would say the coverage of this foundation is light to medium. The coverage is definitely buildable, so if you love full coverage foundations you can definitely work with it. It looks and feels great. I love how it feels light on my skin but still provides the right amount of coverage to cover my acne scars and any blemishes. I also love how this foundation has an SPF of 25 PA +++. This has easily become my favorite foundation and my go-to foundation that I wear everyday. I love it so much. It's an reasonably priced foundation that provides the perfect amount of coverage for me and still feels light on my skin, as if I'm wearing no foundation.

If you were wondering, I have oily, acne prone, sensitive skin. I always mention my skin type in make up reviews because it's one of the main things I look for whenever I read skincare or make up reviews. It's important to know if someone has the same skin type as you before making the final decision so you can get a better understanding if a certain product will really work for your skin type or not.

● Helps to boost cellular respiration for a "plumping" effect

Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation Review

CLICK HERE to read how I discovered this foundation!

I was really amazed. This foundation literally hides everything. You could hide a zillion zits underneath this foundation and not one would be popping through. During the time I tried this foundation, I had a pimple and it completely covered it. My acne scars were totally covered too. I normally use a concealer to cover my acne scars and any blemishes, but with this foundation I didn't need to use a concealer. I had a sample of this foundation, and I usually apply my foundation with a stippling brush so I always dispense foundation onto the back of my hand. I tried pouring a small amount of this foundation onto the back of my hand but it wouldn't move, so I had to put some of the foundation onto the back of my hand. This foundation felt and looked like a concealer. And all I needed was a pea-sized amount to cover my entire face, and hide my acne scars and any blemishes. The foundation bottle comes with a pump and I read in many reviews that it dispenses the perfect amount of foundation needed to cover your entire face. I instantly fell in love with this foundation by how flawless my skin looked after application. I also love how this foundation matched my skin tone perfectly (I'm in the shade Medium 54). So I quickly rushed to Sephora and purchased the full size bottle of the Kat Von D Foundation. My plan was to finish the rest of the sample, and then start using the full sized bottle. However, as I kept wearing this foundation more and more, I grew tired of it. I didn't like the way it felt on my skin throughout the day. It felt heavy and cakey, and after about a few hours, I just wanted to remove all my make up. And the weirdest thing happened, my eye lids became swollen, red, and dry. Since I'm not a skincare or make up expert, I have no idea what caused this. Was it because of the cold weather, or was it because my skin grew tired of wearing this full coverage foundation everyday? I don't know. About two days later, my chin became super dry. It was so dry to a point where my skin was peeling. It was yucky and weird because I have extremely oily skin and this has never happened to me before. I had so many questions but no answers. Was this foundation drying out my skin during the cold weather? I don't know! All I knew was I'm never wearing this foundation again; I'm too afraid might skin might become dry and start peeling again. So I ended up returning it, but as I was there, I ran into the foundation that became my all time favorite foundation!

I usually end my reviews telling my readers what type of skin type I recommend this foundation for, but I honestly don't know. I'm not saying this foundation was the cause of drying out my skin. I just don't want anyone to experience what I experienced. All I can say is that the coverage of this foundation is absolutely amazing. I think this is a foundation for someone who is looking to cover many blemishes and those who go to events and have photo shoots on a daily basis because this foundation literally covers everything! I don't think it's a foundation for every day use though, unless you love full coverage foundations.

Foundation Details:
● $34 for 1.0 fl oz
● Medium 54 (Medium complexion with yellow beige undertone) is my shade
● Full Coverage Foundation

My Journey to finding my perfect foundation || Interactive makeup reviews

I've been on the hunt for a perfect go-to foundation; an affordable foundation that was perfect for everyday use. Since I received a Sephora gift card from my parents during Christmas, I decided this was the perfect time to find to pick the perfect foundation right for my skin. I browsed all of the foundations on Sephora's website and three foundations caught my eye. I was attracted to Yves Saint Laurent LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT Illuminating Foundation SPF 19, Kat Von D's Lock-it Tattoo Foundation, and Make UP FOREVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation. My heart was mainly set on YSL's foundation since I read so many good reviews about the foundation. I was also interested in this foundation because it's currently Ingrid's (missglamorazzi) favorite foundation, and her skin is always glowing and flawless. We also have the same exact skin type and I have never come across someone with the same skin type as me. If you were wondering, I have sensitive, acne prone, oily skin with acne scars. Whenever I read a review about a make up or skincare product, I always make sure they have a similar skin type before I try it, because the one thing I hate the most about trying out new products is breaking out. And I know I wouldn't break out if I tried YSL's foundation. However, when I checked the Sephora website and went to the Sephora store, they didn't have my shade in stock. So about a week later, I ended up at the mall again and I decided to go to Sephora just to see if there were any other foundations I liked. One of the employees there was really helpful and kindly gave me two foundation samples, the Kat Von D Foundation and the Make up forever foundation. I was more excited to try the Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation just because I heard so many amazing things and the people who have tried this foundation, their skin looked flawless. The main things that I look for in a foundation is if it matches my skin tone, if it feels light on my skin and still provides a decent amount of coverage, and if it breaks me out or not. If it breaks me out, I'm automatically tossing that foundation. After I tried out both foundations for about a week, I honestly saw no problems with them. I didn't know which one would be my future go-to foundation, but there was something that drew me to the Kat Von D Foundation...

I have the sweetest sister ever! I've been talking about Mac's Archie Girls collection and she was so sweet to get me a few things from the collection. The packaging is waay too cute. I am definitely going to keep the boxes. She also gave me an Archie Girls pin but I'm not sure if it's included with every purchase or not :O Have any of you bought anything from MAC's Archie's Girls collection? Are you more like Betty or Veronica? I think I'm more like Betty than Veronica, but I definitely love fashion and shopping as much as Veronica does! c:
