Did you see the title? Well, this news is sure to stop you short.

After much deliberation (in my head, with my self), I have decided that blogbylili is going to move. The new address is sugartoglitter.blogspot.com 

Blogspot offers many more options in terms of customizing layout and posts, and I think it will be for the better. I hope you enjoy and see you there!



Dior Best in Show Lash Amplifying Duo | Review

The fact that this was on my wish list (and then bought it a day later) tells you something, eh?

With my lashes, the biggest problem I have is with volume, for my lashes are relatively long. For $20, you get a mini size of DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum (which is basically why bought this) and a DiorShow mascara.

The mascara is okay (for, it doesn’t give as much volume as Maybelline Full’n Soft, which I love) and it is more lengthening, but the real winner is the serum. I LOVE it! I’m not sure if it’s “holy grail”, but it’s pretty close. I have been using it everyday and it gives my lashes so much more volume, while still making my lashes not look clumpy or hard, just perfect.

Here’s a picture of the brushes. I’m not going to talk too much about the mascara, because I don’t really like it (by the way, it’s scented like the Dior perfume). The brush of the serum has many small bristles that work great at coating each and every lash completely with the perfect about of serum.

Overall, I think I’m in love…with this serum. I may just have to bring myself to by the full size…

Calling All Beauty Lovers

Okay, first, I must make myself clear. I have this blog for a few reasons: 1. It is fun and it gives me an excuse to buy more things and continue a side-hobby. 2. It’s for you! This is exactly why I need your help. I want to blog what you want to read. In that case, leave a comment below telling me what you’d like to see. Is it more tutorials (wait…I havent done one yet)? More product reviews? You get the gist.

Second, I am on a search…for a lipstick. I do not currently own any (I know…no judging) and I want to know which ones are your favorites.

On that note…avoir!

Beauty Lab: Powder Comparison

Well, now I’m back from New York. Although I am very sad, I must say that sleeping in my own bed for the first time in over a month was amazing. Anyway, there will be lots of new posts coming your way so stay tuned. Recently, I tried a new powder that I am in love with, the Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Powder. 
Powder Comparison
Originally, I was obsessed with my bareMinerals Mineral Veil, until I tried this. The problem I soon came to see with the veil is that it left my skin looking ashy and powder heavy, not clear and natural. I tried the Clinique powder and I was hooked. It heals the natural redness that my skin has while still making it look clear as day. It works great on its own if you don’t wear foundation or with foundation if you do. This powder is seriously a miracle worker.

You Choose

Throughout the time that I have been blogging, I have realized the importance of scheduled posts. I already have some on my blog, for instance, Foodie Friday every friday and My Life Lately every wednesday, but I would like to implement in one more. This blog is in action 24/7  after all! Just reply to the poll below and the winning choice will be chosen. It’s that simple! I will keep track of the other options maybe to implement later on, but for now, the best wins. Here it is (and I have one more thing to say…please vote)…

Here are the options:

A sugary and glittery day – once a week, I will post my day. From dawn till dusk, you will follow me around through ballet classes, shopping, cooking, and much more.

The Weekly Goody – every sunday, I will do a post on one item that I have been using constantly this week. This item could be anything – the new cereal I have been loving, a new website that has joined my “most viewed” list, etc.

This or That / Mint Shorts

As my journey finally comes to a close for the perfect mint shorts, another begins as I try to find the perfect shirts to match (I cannot even start to think about accessories). The first look, the “classic and sassy” one features a billowy blouse with gold polka dots from Zara, the perfect combo to ground the eclectic-ness of the shorts. The second look features a neon pink striped tee from J. Crew. Although it may seem like too much color, the stripes add a classic, fun approach to the shorts, perfect for summer. The only problem now…which shirt to buy first!
