Christmas Eve OOTD + Christmas Day Presents

Christmas Eve OOTD

Top, skirt, accessories: Forever 21
Shoes: Marshall’s

Clockwise from top left: Stella by Stella McCartney Perfume, Brother Sewing Machine, Leather Jacket, Sweater

First off, a very merry Christmas to all of my followers!

I had actually meant to post my OOTD yesterday, when I wore it, but I got back home really late and I still had to finish my prescribed title draft x_x. I had a lot of fun coordinating this outfit because that cat crop top is literally my favorite crop top and the shoes are actually the cutest things in the world. *squee* The accessories are actually a secret Santa gift from one of my really close friends (◡‿◡✿).  Those of you who follow me on instagram (if you don’t, by the way, you probably should ;))  are probably aware of my little Sephora shopping spree where I bought Marc Jacobs blush and NARS foundation, which I’ve been using just about everyday since I got it. I’m even using it in that picture! My lips are a combo of Milani Lipstick in Black Cherry (11) and Maybelline Color Whisper in Petal Rebel (60). My eyes are basically Tarte eyeshadow, Marc Jacobs eyeliner, and Clinique high impact mascara.

Onto Christmas Day!

Oh man, this year was pretty hard on my family this year, so I wasn’t really expecting much for Christmas considering my college tuition is going to be about 50k/year, my mom went to the Philippines this year, and she got married. I was really surprised that I actually got anything this year, actually. I really loved all of the gifts, but my favorite one by far is my brand-new Brother SC9500 Computerized Sewing machine *________* I had really needed a sewing machine to do the portfolio portion of my FIT application, so this was literally the best thing ever for me. Other things I got were an OCC Lip Tar set including Anime, NSFW, Black Dahlia, and Memento, Stella by Stella McCartney perfume (one of my faves!), as well as a leather jacket and a sweater.

Anyways, I hope that you guys are having a great Christmas (if you do celebrate Christmas)~ Did you get any good presents? Give any great ones? What was your favorite?

Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld: Mon Shu

Mon Shu is Fashion Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld‘s latest creation. Mon Shu is the result of Karl Lagerfeld’s recent collaboration with Cosmetic brand Shu Uemura. Believe it or not, Karl did say that he uses Shu Uemura cosmetics for his sketches  “because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors.”

The above video show’s how Mon Shu was born, and includes a sneak peek at the collaboration. It looks like there’ll be several shadows, at least one lipstick, blush, liner(?), face powders, blush, and bronzer (maybe.)

I’m über excited for this collection because I missed out on Karl Lagerfeld x Sephora last year, so hopefully, I can score some goodies this year!

So this leaves me with the question: Should I break out some red contacts for Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura to have a Mon Shu inspired look?
