"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
- Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the US
Review: Maybelline's Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
Maybelline's Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black is very creamy and super gentle when applied to the lids, not to mention the brush is definitely a great add in as well. I remember when I first bought the L'oreal Hip Gel Eyeliner, the tiny brush that came with it was super stiff and horrible, but this brush is more flexible and it can be use to fling your winged eyeliners and such. Would I repurchase this product again? Yes, I really want toeggplant. In terms of staying power, I have really oily lids, so when I had this on the other day, it lasted a lot longer than I thought (although I don't remember how many hours, definitely not 24 though because I could tell part of the liner was fading). I'm sure if you apply an eye primer base or your concealer, it would last a very long time. I took this picture right after I bought the product because I was so excited to try it since it had so many wonderful reviews and it does look pretty good. Although it's suppose to be Blackest Black, I really don't think it's the darkest black I've seen, but the color is very buildable to create the intensity you like. It does take a couple of minutes to dry, but overall, I think it's a very good eyeliner for the price of ~$8.00+ and yes, I would recommend it to a friend.
Today has been cloudy and cold, even some rain earlier. Fall and Winter seems to always bring with them feelings of sadness, don't you think so?
It must be really beautiful in other parts of the world, well the other states even, when leaves transform colors and they fall on your head. Or when you jump over a pile of them and giggle until your stomach hurts. California-eh, not so much. Below are some photos I've found online of amazingly gorgeous of what Fall season is like in other parts of the world.
....Finally, Fall season in Northern California, USA -_- California's Fall and Winter season is nowhere as beautiful as the other states and the East Coast, but at least our flowers still bloom (like the one below). Our our Springs and Summers are great!
This is the 2nd day I've been wearing The Face Shop Freshian Mascara, yet I keep forgetting to take pictures of the eyelashes instead of myself =( So far, it does not budge or smudge at all- but then again, this is Fal…
This was me roughly 3 weeks ago when I first embarked on my journey to run everyday for 100 days. Before this project, it was difficult for me to complete a 1 mile run or jog, without huffing and puffing, but after 3 weeks, I can make it to 1 mile without wanting to give up. I used to be quite jealous of people who sweat a lot at the gym because I did not have the perseverance to run to the point where I would sweat, I just gave up too easily.
People say if you fully commit yourself to something for 100 days, you'll blown yourself away, you might even be really good at it. To be honest, I have not run everyday since I have started, but I have done the best I can within the last 3 weeks. I should be up to 5 miles/run now, but this is the breaking point. I've jogged up to 4 miles (with a walking break after every mile), but my mentality hasn't been there recently. I run at our local community center and I would watch The Big Bang Theory or Modern Family as I run, but there …
