Neutrogena 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes:Review

So, a couple weeks ago, I decided I needed to try out a new undereye concealer. I have medium bags I'd say... I don't get very much sleep, but I have a visible blue vein under my left eye that drives me crazy! I decided to give Neutrogena's 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes a chance. In comes in a small squeeze tube. It doesn't come with a very large amount of product, and it's $10, so it isn't a very good value, if that is what you're looking for. It is 0.37oz. Now this concealer is also an eye cream and an SPF, which is great! The only problem is that it doesn't have great coverage. It definitely lessens the look of your circles, but not greatly. But I did notice that the eye cream works well! It makes your under-eyes very soft and supple! The concealer doesn't  cake and has quite a dewy finish. If you have light under-eye circles, I recommend this for you. I believe it comes in four shades, the lightest being Fair 05, which is my color. Have a charming day!

Outfit of the Day 10/27/11

I wore this outfit last Wednesday!
I loved this outfit so much! It was very fall, and classic. That's what I've been leaning towards lately. Everything I wear is either black, brown, nude, or cream! The cardigan is Ralph Lauren. See the suede shoulder patch detailing on the right shoulder? So cute! It was long enough to wear as a dress, so i buttoned it all the way up and paired it with a pair of black Vera Wang tights! Lately, I've loved these black tights! I wear them almost every other day. My oxford flats are by Steve Madden. The crimson infinity scarf is from Target. Scarves have also been a big thing for me this fall. And of course my Aldo bag! Have a charming day!

Outfit of the Day 10/24/11

I wore this on Monday, but didn't get a chance to post it!
My jeans are just your basic slim boot from American Eagle in a medium wash. The light pink blouse is from Forever 21, and I put a short sleeve gray sweater over top to add some more style and warmth(It's been so cold!) I rolled the sleeves of the blouse up so they wouldn't be disproportionate to the sweater. I took a statement necklace from American Eagle and put it under the collar of the blouse. I really like that look, and think it's very chic, but still young enough looking. I wore plain black Steve Madden flats. I've been wearing those shoes pretty much every day lately! I wore my hair in a top knot with bobby pins to keep it from looking messy, which is a go-to style for me. 
Have a charming day!

Outfit of the Day 10/17/11

Today, I went with a theme of mixing patterns in my outfit. Sometimes, mixing different patterns doesn't work, but I felt like this did.
I'm paired some high-waisted American Eagle shorts over my black tights, and I also wore my plain black Steve Madden flats. My shirt is from TJ Maxx, and it actually is a tank top with a gold zipper all the way down the back. The shirt is very unique, because it has a knot in the front, but I tucked it into my shorts, because I don't particularly like the way it looks. My black blazer is from H&M. The lining is cheetah print, so I decided to roll up the sleeves a bit, so that it was visible. The blazer also has slight shoulder pads. My necklace is from Express. I bought this necklace for homecoming, and soon I'll be doing a post showing my homecoming outfit and makeup! With this outfit, I wore my hair in a straight, sleek low ponytail. Have a charming day!

Outfit of the Day 10/4/11

 This is an outfit I wore last week. 
My shirt is from Delia's and it says "I <3 Mr. Fitz" (from Pretty Little Liars). Underneath is a black lace cami from the Gap. My shorts are from American Eagle, and my tights are gray and are from Charlotte Russe. For this outfit, I would've preferred black tights, but I couldn't find any, so I settled for gray! I wore my Vince Camuto boots:
I carried my Christian Audigier bag, which I thought completely made the outfit!:
I wore red lips, which matched the heart on the shirt perfectly! :)
Have a charming day!

Review: MAC eyeshadow: Patina

Sorry for the lack of blogs! Today, I'm doing a review on a new MAC eyeshadow that I bought yesterday. I wore it today and I LOVED it! Patina is a frost finish. I had the MAC girl try it on me, and she put it from my lid all the way past my crease, and it looked so pretty, so that's how I wore it today! It was so simple, and looked so nice and put together. Because it has a subtle shimmer to it, the lid picks up more light that the crease and brow bone, so it looks like your wearing multiple colors. I feel like this color would flatter anybody! It would be such a beautiful wash of color on darker skin tones. Finally, here are the swatches(they don't do it justice)
Here are some comparisons:
