Work Flow Outfit #12: Asymmetrical Tribal

It's been a while since I've posted a work outfit. I just wanted to have a little bit of variety on my blog and put a hold on the series. 
I had a morning shift so a cardigan was definitely in order in this outfit. It gets pretty chilly in the early morning in Hawaii. This asymmetrical skort is very similar to the Zara skort but definitely much more affordable. I love that I get to wear shorts, which isn't dress code for my job, but the fact that it appears to be a skirt as well is so versatile and I love it! 
I hope you enjoyed another Work Flow Outfit and stay tuned for the next one.

Love from Hawaii, Jasmine Mae

Outfit Details:
Tribal Cardigan: Charlotte Russe
Loose White Crop Top: Forever 21
Asymmetrical Skort: Wet Seal
Flats: Wet Seal

Sephora Haul: Anastasia / Kat Von D

I got a gift card from my grandma a few months ago and never had the time to actually look around Sephora. I had an opening shift today at work and decided to have a little bit of personal time afterwards. I walked around the mall and did a bit of shopping (clearly, as seen on my twitter here.) I stopped by The Body Shop, Sephora, and Victoria Secret. Surprisingly, I didn't find anything interesting at Forever 21. Any who, here are the items I finally decided to purchase at Sephora.
I say finally because I seriously wanted to buy every single item that my favorite beauty gurus on YouTube mentioned. First, let me just say how ecstatic I am to know that my Sephora finally holds Bobbi Brown items!!! Ekkkk, I seriously wanted to buy everything in her new Nectar and Nude collection. In the end, I decided to go with the Anastasia Brow Wiz and Kat Von D Tattot Liner because I needed a new brow product and I'm in search on the perfect eyeliner for me. But no worry, I definitely will be back for more products!
In the mean time, I hope you enjoyed this Sephora Haul and let me know if you want to see a review of any of the items. See you Beauties next time.

Love from Hawaii, Jasmine Mae

Anastasia Brow Wiz: Brunette - $21
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner: Topper - $18

Manicure Monday #1

Welcome to a new series called Manicure Monday. I tend to change up the color of my nails every two weeks and I know that may seem like a long time, but that seems to work best for me. With this new series, it would be a great way to show you want new color I'm rocking for the next couple weeks.
This Monday, I decide to go with a nude and also new color to my collection. This nail varnish is by L'Oréal Collection Privée in Julianne's Nude. This collection comes in 5 other colors and this color best suits my skin tone. I was in search for a nude nail varnish and bought this at my local Walgreens. It only takes two coats for an amazing opaque color and it dries fairly quickly. I decided to add a little accent flower to my ring finger in honor of Spring and I loved how it turned out.
I hope you enjoyed this new series and see you Beauties for another Manicure Monday next time.

Drugstore Haul #4: Walgreens

Here is a two part haul from Walgreens. I've been watching a few of my favorite YouTubers March favorites and empties videos and it's struck my shopping senses. I made a list of the many things I wanted to try out and this past few weeks I've been purchasing them when ever I got the chance to go into Walgreens.

Pssssst! Instant Dry Shampoo: $4 - HeyClaire did a favorites video and featured this product. I've been wanting to try the Dove dry shampoo but I couldn't find it anywhere. In addition, I got the travel size instead of a full size because this would be the first time trying out dry shampoo on my hair. I want to do a trial before committing to the full size.

Maybelline Baby Skin: $6 - I have been searching for this ever since Nicole Guerriero featured it in an old Ulta haul video (view that video here), but every time I go into any drugstore it's sold out! I get so upset! Walking into Walgreens a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to have the last one available. 

Wet n Wild The Naked Truth Quad: $3 - I first saw this product on Nicole Guerriero's channel and once I saw the colors I've already declared that I needed to get it. Who denies a beautiful, pigmented, and affordable nude quad?

Maybelline Line Stilleto Eyeliner: $6 - I have been using the Milani Eyetech Extreme Eyeliner but I've been needing something new. I feel like the more recent Milani eyeliners I've been using have been drying out more quicker than they use to. So a new eyeliner was in order.

Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets: $4 - Just an essential in my makeup bag that I needed to get a new one of. If you want to see this product features in my Everyday Make Up Bag post click here.

Clean & Clear Foaming Facial Cleanser: $5 - A little TMI but I totally didn't know that my current night time facial wash was expired, eekkk. I haven't really gotten into the skin care routine until beginning of last year so I never bothered to check the the dates of the products I already had for a while. I tend to stay with C&C with my skin care, so I decided to give this product a try. 

Clean & Clear Morning Burst facial Cleanser: $6 - My morning face wash however, I used up in time before it's expiration date, thank goodness.

I hope you enjoyed another beauty haul. I will be featuring a few of these product in future posts that I have planned. Let me know what else you'd like to see more of from this haul and I'll make a separate post for it. Stay tuned for a new series coming up in my next post and I hope all you book worms will like it :) See you Beauties next time ^_^

Love from Hawaii, Jasmine Mae

Drugstore Haul #3: I want nudes!

Recently, I went to the drug store located at the mall I work in. I went in to kill some time before work started and I was in need of some nude lippies. Here are the items on ended up purchasing.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss: Super Natural
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain: Adore
NYC Intense Lip Color Twistable Crayon: Brooklyn Brown Stone
NYC Intense Lip Color Twistable Crayon: Riverside Rose
NYC Intense Lip Color Twistable Crayon: Ballroom Blush
Here are the swatched for the lippies that I purchased. I loved all the different shades of nudes that I purchased and I can't wait to rock them all. I am currently obsessing over riverside rose. If I ever posted an outfit or a face of the day on my other social networks, more than likey, riverside rose would be on my lips.

I hope you enjoyed this make up haul. I have another haul post on its way, stay tuned for that. I know I've been MIA for a while, but I've got a few post planned in the up coming week. Follow me on bloglovin' for updates and comment down below for any request or feedback as well. :)

What's in my everyday make up bag?

Today's post is a bit different from my usual outfit posts. I present to you what's in my current everyday make up bag. This make up bag, and everything in it, is always in what ever bag I'm using at that moment. Whether it's my school bag or my regular bag. It holds everything I need in case I need to touch up or put on a quick face for work.
First, my make up bag is from a thrift store. I found the patterns to be the very first feature to draw me in. After exploring it a bit, I learned that it is an old Ipsy bag. It's not to small, yet not to big, and it fits perfectly in my bags. It lays flat, so it lays thin and not bulky. That's great for me because it doesn't take up a lot of space in my bag, yet it holds everything I need. 
Here are everything that I hold in my make up bag:

Sephora Mirror: I got this dual mirror in a gift card set from my one year anniversary with Nik. It has a normal mirror on the top and a more magnified mirror on the bottom. Having both comes in handy when I want to see my overall face or if I need a closer view to do my eyeliner.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (004: Sandstorm): I use this drug store pressed powder in my everyday face and keep it with me at all times to touch up throughout the day. I love how matte it makes my face, yet it lets my natural oils to surface just a little. Plus, who can beat the price of an amazing performing face powder.

Mac Hello Kitty Mini Face Brush: This face brush actually came from a set in Mac's holiday Hello Kitty brush set. I use it to apply my pressed powder throughout my face. The fact that it's a mini face brush makes it fit perfectly in my make up bag.

Maybelline Rocket Mascara: This mascara is my ultimate favorite. I'm not one for very voluminous eyelash, but rather more for length. Although this mascara does both, there is a certain way I apply it that it only lengthens my eyelashes extremely. The results are amazing and satisfying.

Eyelash Curler: Unfortunately, I don't remember where I got my eyelash curler from. What I do know is that it's an amazing curler and I'm satisfied with its performance. 

Wet n Wild Lipstick (522A: Dark Wine): Although fall is over, I still like to rock the dark lip. I just apply it lightly to my lips and spread it over my lips with my finger. It goes on a little more pink than a wine color.

NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream (Nude Peach Fuzz): To tone down my wine lipstick even more, I add on this more pink toned lip cream. It's a perfect everyday combo for me, that is why I always keep the pair in my make up bag.

Nivea Lip Butter (Raspberry Rose Kiss): Definitely something to have with me to hydrate my lips whenever they get dry. One amazing feature I love about this lip butter is it's smell. It smells jut like raspberries. Plus it acts great as a base to my favorite lip combo.

Clean and Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets: Ladies, you know I need to have these in case my oily days go a little crazy. I also need to blot before I need to apply a touch up of my pressed powder.

Bobby Pins: For the days I need to pin back my crazy fringes.

I know this post is a bit of a read but I still hope that you all enjoyed it. It's something different and I've just been getting a lot of inspiration from other top bloggers; this happens to be one of them. If you want to see a post on my everyday look, featuring these items and others, please let me know in the comment section below. I'll see all of you Beauties in my next post ♡

Accessory Haul: Spring Prep!

I did some accessory shopping recently and Wet Seal had some amazing spring pieces. I think my favorite purchase from this haul would be the aztec pastel necklace. I love that it's not too bright in color, being as the colors are in a more pastel shade. Secondly, aztec will look great this summer. Lastly, the length of the necklace is perfect. I thought that this necklace had a long chain, but when I tried it on it stopped perfectly on my chest area.

I also got some awesome deals from my local Papaya store. Its like a Ever Blue or Love Culture store here in Hawaii. They had a wide variety of knuckle rings and I needed some silver ones, so I got a few of those and a pair of earrings for only $1.99, WHAT A STEAL! :)  
Overall, I'm super satisfied with my purchase this past weekend. I think I'll be getting more necklaces because I have a ton of studs and earrings, however I'm lacking in the necklace department. I'll be styling the necklace in a future outfit post, so keep an eye out for that.
I'm looking forward to add more color to my outfits this season and I hope you all are ready for more outfit posts. I especially can't wait to put these accessories to use. I hope you enjoyed this post and see you guys again next time :)

Love from Hawaii, Jasmine Mae XOXO
