MAC Haul

I work very close to a MAC store, and by very close, I mean I take maybe 20 steps and I'm there. I walk past it each day, unless I go through Macy's, and then I have to walk through the beauty department to get to work. It's a lose-lose situation, really.

I'm a college kid, so I can't really afford to be spending all kinds of money on beauty products every week. I saved up everything from the past two months for this haul. However, this does mean I have to be a bit more creative with my blog posts in the next few weeks, as I'll be on a fairly strict budget.

I bought the MAC Pro Palette with Woodwinked, Amber Lights, Naked Lunch and Ricepaper. I adore MAC eyeshadows (I also bought Blackberry recently which is not pictured). The eyeshadows are very pigmented and stay all day.
From Bottom to Top:
Woodwinked- (Veluxe Pearl) Warm brownish gold
Amber Lights- (Frost) Warm peachy brown with shimmer
Naked Lunch- (Frost) Slightly pink with shimmer
Rice Paper- (Frost) Light gold with shimmer

Phyto Review

As someone with extremely frizzy hair, when my mom sent these products to me to try out, I was really excited. I hoped this would be some miracle hair product that left me frizz free.

January Favorites!

Hey guys,

Even though it's mid February, I wanted to get a January favorites post up. These are products I've really been loving lately.

That's a rubbish title to be honest. I should probably have a better intro to my new blog, but hey, what can ya do? 

I suppose I'll introduce myself first, my name is Kyra (kuh-eye-ruh). I'm a 20-year-old journalism student with a love for all things beauty, fashion, music and travel. I tend to be quite awful at about me type things, so forgive me. There is plenty of time and many blog posts ahead for you all to learn more about me though. 

I read some fashion and beauty blogs and watch beauty gurus on YouTube. I'm also an avid reader of Nylon. And one day I started toying with the idea of making a blog or videos on YouTube. I obviously am going with the blog. I mean, I've written bloggy things before (I use made up words sometimes, you'll get used to it), mostly just about my summer in Italy, but still. So instead of using my day off to file my taxes, I decided to start this. I'll be doing reviews and such, along with a few random things here and there that pertain to my other interests. What fun, right?

Here's hoping it lasts!
