Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup

One thing that really stinks is watching your favorite Youtubers talking about all these fantastic make up but they don't have it anywhere else other then USA.  WHAT THE FART!  Canada isn't that bad since we have about 80% of the products they have in USA but it is always that 20% that kicks you in the bum and makes me want to live in the states.  I really want to since they have all the good shops, awesome drugstore deals like bogos and half off.  We never have awesome deals like that.  Not only that, our tax is higher and the price is higher.  But at least we get to say this to them, "FREE (not really) health care :D".
The one foundation in the drugstore that I really want to try and I've heard way too many good things about is the "Neutrogena healthy skin liquid make up foundation".  Why do we not have this here!  We have Neutrogena skincare but not their make up.  Sigh but I think I will get my mom to get this when she crosses the border hopefully this weekend.  

Has anyone tried this?  Anyone reading that is NC15-20?  Will the classic ivory work?

IMATS Vancouver 2013 Haul

 Ohh yea, it is haul time :D.  This is an overlook on what I bought.  Not much since most of my money went to Hakuhodo anyways.  I kind of blow my budget of $300 and went a little overboard at Hakuhodo but it is okay because those brushes are worth it.  I work hard for my money, I can treat myself right? LOL Okay okay, i know it is a lot of money but I held off buying anything make up related for half a year! Why do I still feel bad :(.
 Overview of the vendors that were there.  I felt like there was only around 12 vendors that were actually there to sell make up and others were just taking up space LOL. 

IMATS Vancouver 2013

For the longest time, i was debating whether or not to go to the IMATS.  I didn't want to go because during the two weeks, I would be spending a butt load of money.  I even tried to sell my ticket but then found out that you can only transfer the ticket before April 4.  So I was kind of stuck with the thought, should i waste $30 and save me hundreds or just go?  In the end I went because I wanted a Make up forever face and body liquid foundation and a few Hakuhodo brushes.  NYX wasn't there sadly or else my experience with IMATS this year would have been better.  I didn't take a whole lot of pictures because, well IMATS really didn't impress me all that much.  As a matter of fact, it was quite disappointing.
 I got there bright and early, right before they opened. I maybe should have went there half an hour early so I could get to the Make up forever booth faster but I choose to sleep a little bit more keke.  Woke up at 7:00 am, put on some make up, and got my bum out the door and onto the skytrain.  When I got there, i had to take my online ticket and get my neon orange band.  The neon orange band was for a certain day and a blue band is for two days.

The body shop haul

I must admit that I do like the body shop as much as I don't want to.  I don't know why but in the back of my mind, I don't like the body shop LOL.  I think it is because I feel that there are too much artifical smells.  But I couldn't pass up on their sale (which they have one almost everyday but the best one for sure is 3 for $30 which you can pick whatever you want) 4 for $30 mix and match of their selected body butters and body showers.  I saw the size of the shower gels and was impressed!  Everytime I pass by the store, i go and check if they have their peach scent back and also smell the other scents (which i do like some of them) but a few of their "try me" smells disguisting.  It smells just like stinky plastic in body butter.  Ewwww.....

Pokemon obession

I never thought I would say this but Hi,  my name is Christina and I have a Pokemon TCG (trading card game) addiction. If you were a late 80's to 90's kid, you would know what is pokemon for sure.  Even me as a child, not really paying much attention to them and not being a gaming person, I knew what they were.  I would always tune in for the cartoons when it was on tv.  I even remember me being all mischievous and was suppose to be doing my homework but turning on the tv instead and watching Pokemon. There was a small TV in the upstairs game room that also had a desk.
The obession started about a week and a half ago when me and my boyfriend had a day to ourselves, nothing else to do but just chill around.  He said "hey why don't we go to the dollar store (specifically Dollarmana).  There are pokemon cards there for a really good deal."  I was like "sure...." LOL but in my mind I was like "why do you want pokemon cards.  No one plays them anymore and you're just going to waste money on them."  So when we finally got there, they were in a pack of five random cards for $1. Not bad.  I didn't want him to feel left out so I bought 10 packs.  Why not right? He bought 30 right off the bat! I was like WAHHH?  He kept saying "its worth it, its worth it :D. "  I'm like...sure.....
After we paid for them, we rushed to the bench right outside the store and started to open them.  It was so much fun!  The thrill of not knowing what cards you would get, would you get a rare holographic?  The ratio for getting a shiny in the dollar store is approximately 1:25 so it is quite a gamble since most of the cards that they give you in the packs are commons, uncommons, rare if your lucky.
