Mini Haulage

A couple of weeks ago I went into Walgreens to pick up some Revlon products. I like to wait for 40% off sales on Revlon since they are one of the pricier drugstore brands. I don't think the BOGO 50% off sales are worth it, but that's because I'm a bit on the cheap side :p

I am really begining to like Walgreens! They opened one by my recently and I love their expanded beauty section and their sales and register rewards.

From L to R, top to bottom:

Venus Pro Skin Razor- LOVE THIS! I plan on doing a review soon!
Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Natural- I wanted to test out a neutral lip liner to see what it did to some of my lip colors in terms of pigmentation
Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Moonlit Jewels- I was just intrigued by these colors and will test them out as bases.
Revlon CustomEyes Shadow and Liner in Party Pop- Honestly, I was a sucker for the pattern on the product lo

Later that same night I went to Target with my friend Tanya. She was wearing a jacket that I just had to have that was on clearance.

Found the jacket! I don't know why it looks so filthy in this picture, but I guarantee you it is not. It was on clearance for $16 and is just too cute! It's Exhiliration brand and I love the ruffles on the bottom of the jacket and by the buttons. The length is between waist and cropped. LOVES it!!

This open cardi was also on clearance. It was $8 and has a lace back. It just screamed summer and nautical to me.

On top of the cardi is black leggings. They seemed super opaque in the store, but I was disappointed when I wore them the first time to see a lot of skin through them and underwear! BOOO

Finally, a small beauty purchase. I smelled this EOS Shave Cream in Vanilla and fell in love. This is actually my first EOS product.

My Target FINALLY got Elf products, but the selection was a bit limited. I got the $1 eyelid primer, $3 Blush Brush and $3 Eyeshadow C Brush.

30 Day Blogger Challenge- Day 4

Day 4- Favorite Foundation

My fave foundation is Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup in Buff. I LOOOOVE this foundation! It gives such a glowy look and the coverage is great considering how liquid-y the foundation is. I've read and seen videos comparing this to the Nars Sheer Glow, but I've never tried that so I'm not sure. If you're using Revlon ColorStay Foundation every day, this may be a nice and lighter alternative to that for you.

30 Day Blogger Challenge- Day 3

Day 3- My favorite Brush

My favorite brush is the Sigma SS150 now known as the Sigma F30 brush. This brush is a large powder brush and I love to use it to apply my bronzer for soft all over color. The brush is super soft and rarely sheds. It also dries surprisingly quick for being such a dense brush.

30 Day Blogger Challenge- Day 2

Day 2-Favorite Bag I Own

I own A LOT of purses. I'm a bit of a purse whore. I'm mainly a Coach gal, but I've recently become a Kate Spade fan as well. I bought this bag in November and use it every weekend I go out!

I love this Kate Spade mini shoulder bag. The black patent leather keeps it from looking too "wedding-y" and the chain handle keeps it young and fresh. I also ADORE the polka dot lining. This is big enough to hold my phone, camera, gloss and my id and some cash. Perfecto!

30 Day Blogger Challenge- Day 1

I've decided to participate in the 30 day Beauty/Fashion blogger challenge that I've seen on a lot of people's blogs. I'm basically doing it to force myself to blog. I have at least 30 topics to blog about! I would like to do it every other day. Let's see if I can keep up with it!

Day 1- Fave Eyeliner

Almay Intense I-Color in Raisin Quartz

I really love this liner, but it's not for those of you who want a precise, sharp line. This is a soft, creamy pencil formula in a berry-brown shade. This is my every day eyeliner and under my glasses it really helps my eyes pop. I've had this for a REALLY long time. I hope it's not discontonued because I haven't had to look for it in a while!

Wow- so this is what money feels like

I've never tried Nars before and I sort of love it now. My Tammy-ness sent me a Nars Lip Gloss/Lip Stain duo in Kisses/Pampa. Wow! The gloss is super glossy and not sticky and a very warm cocoa shade. The lip stain is a deeper shade and it's GORGEOUS! I've actually never tried a lip stain before this and I really want to try the Palladio lip stain now. The stain is only minimally drying so I use my Lush lip exfoliator prior to wearing it and then a thin lip balm.

Secondly, I received the Nars Illuminator in Orgasm in my February Birchbox. I played around with it for a bit and at first didn't like it, but then I layered it over a few of my NYX cream blushes and WOW! This gives a legit glowy lit from with in look. I apply it on top of my cheekbones. Perfecto! And this lil' bit will go a long, long way!

L to R:
Kisses Lip Gloss
Pampa Lip Stain
Illuminator in Orgasm
