I really shouldn’t have, but I did. BH Cosmetics recently had a good sale that I couldn’t pass up, so I bought myself some new goodies. Time to show you guys what I got! I haven’t tried the products yet except for the lip creams and the foundation, so I can’t really say what I think of most of the products yet. I have several other palettes from BH Cosmetics that I absolutely love though, so hopefully these live up to that. I definitely plan to do some makeup looks soon using some of these products, so keep your eye out for those.

I watched two movies on Netflix over the weekend, Terrifier and It Follows. I just love horror, what can I say. Here are my thoughts on the two flicks.

Time for Halloween look #2! The previous look I did, I primarily used eyeshadows. With this look, I primarily used face paint. The great thing about these face paints is that they wash right off with a little bit of water, so the cleanup was easy.
I’ve been wanting to do a Beetlejuice inspired look from the beginning, but I was hesitant to do one since it seems like so many people are doing them this year for some reason. I don’t really like to be trendy or jump on the bandwagon, I like to just do my own thing. However, since I was planning on doing a look like this for a while, I decided to go ahead with it. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, although it is a bit sloppy in places. My line work isn’t the best, but I have very little experience with this kind of thing, so I guess it’s not too bad for a beginner.

It’s officially October! You know what that means? Halloween! Yes, Halloween is all month long, not just one day. To celebrate, I plan to do some different Halloween makeup looks all month long. My goal is to do one a week, but I’m not entirely sure that will work out. If not, I at least I want to do three looks this month.
This is my first one. I figured I would start off with something less creepy and more dreamy. I call this look “Hybrid” because it’s kind of a cross between an alien and a clown. I used an app to change my hair and eye colors just to enhance the look a little bit, and add to its fantasy factor. It’s a little sloppy, but I didn’t have any wigs or colored contacts.
For the makeup, I used a combination of eyeshadow, face paint, highlighter, glitter, and white eyeliner and mascara. Overall, I think this look turned out okay. I really didn’t have a plan or an idea of what I wanted to do. I just started putting color on my face and went from there.

This glam bag was definitely better than last month’s bag, which I’m happy about. There was some small disappointment with shade selections though, which Ipsy is notorious for. I will get into that in a bit.
I’m not a big fan of this bag, although it has grown on me a little bit. I just feel like the last couple bags have been pretty boring, like not much thought or planning went into the design. I do like the quote on the inside of the bag though.

I ordered two new movies, and they came in the mail on Friday. Just in time for the weekend! I saved them both for Saturday night and watched them one after the other. It definitely made for a fun evening. It’s so exciting watching new movies for the first time. Especially ones you’ve been wanting to see. Maybe there’s something nostalgic about it too, but actually having the physical copies instead of just watching on Netflix makes it even more exciting. I don’t know, maybe that’s just me.
I have been wanting to see both of these movies, but I had been putting it off because of bad reviews they had gotten. I usually don’t pay attention to movie reviews because most of the time movies I love have bad reviews and the movies that everyone else seems to love, I don’t really like. That’s why I finally said screw it and went ahead and bought them.

I used another bath bomb that I showed off in my Butter Me Soft Haul. This one is the Summer Sunset bath bomb. I thought I would go ahead and use this one since Summer is ending. It didn’t smell as good as the Galactic Dreams bomb, but it still smelled lovely. As it fizzed, pretty swirls of pink, yellow, and orange came out, which resulted in fruit punch colored bath water once it was all done. I thought I would show you guys some of the pictures I took. Bath bombs are so pretty, they’re like works of art. Other than a sunset, the colors in this one reminded me a lot of the 60’s/70’s as well as candy or sorbet.
