Not ANOTHER personal post!?

Well, February has been quite the slow month in terms of blog output (in terms of real life events, it has sped on by). As some of you may know, I am a college student. This semester, I am taking 18 credit hours. It has been quite the adventure thus far, if an adventure is something along the lines of constant reading, writing, running around (with the goal of accomplishing some school-related task), and once in a blue moon, sleeping.

The next month or so will still be busy, but I do have some posts planned and I hope to have those up soon! My semester should be slowing down around the third week of April, which seems like a far way away, but since Feburary has sped on by, I feel like that week in April is just around the corner.

Obviously I'm not going to stop posting blogs, but I thought it would be good to let you know what is going on in my life in a rather short post. I swear, I'm just awful at talking about myself...

Have a great week, everybody!

NOTD: Butter London "Knackered"

Sorry for the lack of posts. I'm taking 18 credit hours this semester and it has consumed my life. Here are some pictures from my most recent NOTD, which is Butter London's Knackered.

I had heard a lot about this color through other blogs and made it my first beauty purchase of 2013.

What are you currently wearing on your nails?

January 2013 Empties!

Normally my empties posts are filled with skin and hair care products. This month I actually have makeup! I won't pretend I've finished a lot of makeup, but it's progress. A few items are samples, but I'm much closer to being out of my samples. I'd also like to apologize for the delay in this post. School got a little crazy, to say the least.

Desert Essence Jojoba Oil: I liked this. I used it to remove my eye makeup before I got my Magic Mitt and it worked well for my skin. I already have some almond oil and grapeseed oil, so until I finish those, I won't be trying any other oils.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater: I loved the smell and feel of this, but I think I want to try plain rosewater somewhere down the line.

Revlon PhotoReady Concealer in Fair 001: This lasted me a pretty long time. I loved the coverage and the way it looked under my eyes. I don't think I ever used it on pimples, but it definitely covered the darkness under my eyes.

Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel: This marks my last shaving cream or gel. Lately I've been using either body wash, oil, or conditioner and for my legs, all of those options work just as well as

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap (Rose): This is the two ounce size, so it's technically not a sample, but it didn't last very long either. I liked the smell of this, but I like the other scents better. I'll repurchase in the other scents and in bigger sizes.

Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel: This was something I wasn't thrilled to see in my Ipsy bag in November, so I'm glad it is gone.

The Balm What's Your Type Mascara in "The Body Builder": I liked this. I won't be repurchasing the full size immediately, but I would consider using it again.

Perfekt Lash Perfection Gel: I liked this too, but the applicator wasn't my favorite. If they could take the formula and change the wand, I'd love it.

Stila Smudge Crayon in Umber: I used this as an eyeliner. I'm not really sure how I finished it before I finished "Smoke" since that is my favorite.

Benefit Ooh La Lift:

Not Pictured, but expired:
Ulta Gel Eyeliner: This dried out
Urban Decay Primer Potion: it started smelling a little funky, so I tossed it.

What did you finish in January?
