Favorites: September and October 2017!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! It is time for favorites for September and October! I will also be including my fave top 5 songs!

Empties Finished: First, let’s start with a Project Pan Update! Urban Decay Naked Basics 2: First, I finally finished my Urban Decay Naked Basics 2! I was giving this one so much love when I first got it even with my neutral looks for anything interview related and Pre-Employment Program stuff and man it took forever. I decided to toss it finally noticing that it is hard to get the eye shadow with my brush and knew that I had to let it go. I do have a back up of this pallet and it is out of its box!

Revlon Primer + Shadow in Bohemian and Metropolitan: Next I finally finished two of my Revlon pallets from that Primer and Shadow line which it was an okay thing and not very pigmented for most people. I only had three of them and finished two of them which happened to be Bohemian and the other Metropolitan. I don’t know what is up with some Revlon items but the nail polishes, the So Lengthy Mascara, and the lip items are the best from them while the eye shadows are meh in my book. I had these for a long time and glad to finish two out of the three, I will get to Advant Gard and I know it.

Burberry Brit: I finished a perfume and that is Burberry Brit from Burberry. I had this bottle for a long time and it was time for me to finish it! It was also a fave scent for anyone who noticed it at the Blind Rehab Center I stayed at in Daytona.

Painterly and Kaaahhhnnn by MAC: Time to start a new with Back to MAC and that is with Painterly from their Paint Pots and Kaaaahhhhnnn! From their Star Trek collection! I loved these two a lot. I am thinking of going for Soft Ocre next time if I am looking for a primer again while Kahhhnnn, it was just limited edition and this was the only other Star Trek themed lip glass I had. The thing is that the lip glasses tend to go thick and you finish them a bit too quickly. Glad to start a new collection to take back.

I think that is it for this Project Pan update!

Faves:

New Collection: Ulta Be Gorgeous Set: First is the newest Ulta gift set and that is the Be Gorgeous set that they released for holiday this year! When the new holiday stuff comes out you know I am getting some of it early to try out! This one especially when the email was in my inbox and it was $19 along with the Be Charming set. Even though these sets are the same price, the Be Gorgeous was way worth more than the other because I feel like I can create more looks with the shadows than the other. I did do two looks with it and managed to do a video of one of them but the other my Android camera kept on going out. I hope to get my next video up. I do admit I only didn’t like one item and that is the eye primer they put in this set. They did it as a cream in the plastic mold but wishing they did it as a tube of it instead because it is hard to put on the eye that way. I had to go into Painterly for my primer but I do love how it did get me into color correcting!

Color Corrector: NYX Concealer in Green: Next is a concealer and you would not expect to see it being a green one from NYX. I had some issues with dry patches and redness on my face and needed some help and when I saw the Be Gorgeous set had concealers, I decided to do some digging. I got the NYX Green Concealer at the NYX store in twon since a website highly recommend it and this concealer is amazing! It does go on thick but it does blend very easily and for $5 it is not that bad for a concealer. I am going to try out the light shade for the under eye because sometimes the Cover Girl one I use runs out a little too easily.

Eyeliner Pencil: Penny by Ulta: Next is an eyeliner fave and it might be cheating since I got it last month during the 21 Days of Beauty but it is the Ulta Gel Liner Pencil in Penny. These pencils are AMAZING! Yes, I know you have to sharpen them but I prefer to sharpen over automatic because they don’t break as easily. These go on smooth and they do pack on a lot of color. Plus, they do stay put in the water and lower lash lines! Where was this pencil when I first did Link but I would just get the black one for the wing. Still, it is a good pencil!

Lip Product: E. L. F. Lip Primer and Plumper: I mentioned this in my “Best Liquid Lipsticks for Conventions” because it does help and that is the E. L. F. Primer and Plumper! I heard about this all thanks to Andrea Matalano because she was have the same problems like I had with the Color Pop Matte Liquid Lipsticks where they ran all over the place! I looked like what if Harley Quin kissed the Joker way too much with Ribbon from the Hello Kitty collection. I was so happy to find out that I was not the only one and when she mentioned this product I knew I had to find it and Ulta had it on their website and it was amazing! Yes the plumper does sting a little but that goes for all lip plumping products but it doesn’t swell like crazy when I used a NYX plumping gloss a long time ago. You essentially put the primer down first and then put the plumper on top or put the plumper on top of the liquid lipstick after putting that down. This makes any liquid lipstick stay in place. I used it on my Kat Von D’s, my Ofra ones, even my Rimmel Apocalips or Show Off Lip Laquers and they stay put! Where were these? I did get two more by the way!

T. V. Show: Stranger Things: It took me a year but glad I did see it in time for Season 2 to come out and that is Stranger Things! This show was interesting and yet weird but I loved it! It tells about a boy gone missing in a small town around the 1980s, is it around that time? Anyways, He goes missing after a night of Dungeons & Dragons with his friends and then the next day a mysterious girl shows up and more people do go missing as the story goes and the girl, 11 or El for short is linked to the strange happenings that lead to a world that is different from ours. This show was great and I loved it! Yes, the first season was slightly short but it is NetFlix after all. I can’t wait what comes next since Nerdy Shirts and his brother were the ones who got me more curious about the first season after watching their reaction video to the second season trailer, I had to see it for myself. If you are into strange worlds beyond and having nerds be the hero, this show is for you!

Cartoon: Voltron The Legendary Defender: I had to mention this since it is a part of my Rookie Days of Anime and that is Voltron Legendary Defender! I haven’t mentioned it on a faves because I didn’t see season 1 and it got spoiled for me while I was in Daytona but I did catch up very well with Season 2 and now that Seasons 3 & 4, or shall I say Season 3.1 and 3.2 came out this year, I loved it! All I have to say is that the characters they did for this series is better than the classic, sorry that’s my opinion, because you have Elura be more useful and not always in distress, Lance as more like Saka from Avatar and a lady’s man, Pidge with HER character seems more like the one in the original but looking for her brother and dad who got taken, Hunk being more handy in the kitchen and science, and Keith being emo, and Shiro being the leader! Lotor, which I did like more, had a better character build up especially towards the end of 3.2 which I won’t give which you must see yourself. All I have to say is that this was a really good come back for the series and told a better story, even it gave an origin story for Voltron and filled in the blanks. I can’t wait what the next season will bring because it did end on an amazing note.

Book: Shattered Heir by N. M. Howell: I know I gave this book a bit of a detailed review but this was a great book and I want to apologize to Ms. Howell because I feel like I won’t get any newsletters from her again but I was pretty honest. There are times when you can’t always please everyone and someone at a job search seminar I went to recently said know your target audience and you will retain more as much as you repel. I didn’t think the story need any changes because the story was well-written and enjoyed it very much. I hope I get to read the sequel because I want to know what happens next to Reina and her guardians and how she will get her kingdom back in order.

Songs: Now onto my top 5 fave songs because it is hard to pick ten and these songs have been stuck in my head for the longest time!

1. “Victorious” by Panic! At the Disco: This one is a very catchy song with a very catchy beat!
2. “Uma Thurman” by Fall Out Boy: This always pops up on any radio I tend to listen to on I Heart Radio! I really want to try out CK Eternity since Calvin Klein is a fave clothing brand of mine and perfume brand too!
3. “Bulls&*^!” by Rise Against: Next is Rise Against with a song that does tell all! It does get into my head time to time and don’t always sing along.
4. “A Favor House Atlantic” by Coheed & Cambria: I started listening to these guys again and I still remember an old classmate loving them. I also have an easier time singing along with this song too!
5. “Strike Back” English Cover by Jonathan Young: I found this cover on YouTube by this guy since I love the song by Back On and did finally get my paws on Part 18 of Fairy Tail. The lyrics do fit me the most since I did get put down recently for my career goal by someone but not letting it be put down anymore. Heck, I would get the chorus tattooed with my Fairy TailxKingdom Hearts tattoo design. Plus, the song was well translated too!
Well, that is my faves of September and October! Let’s see what November and December brings when of course we have Thanksgiving and Christmas and Holiday Matsuri rolled into one!
