Rite Aid Haul

5 Jan


Happy Sunday. I hope every is all snuggled in and warm. We are waiting for a cold snap here in VA.

So yesterday I had some time to kill and went into Rite Aid and hit a sale. Well all but the Aveeno was on sale. I think all in all I spent $20 before taxes.

Aveeno Postively Radient Daily Cleansing Pad

This was a last minute grab. It said it had an exfoliant side. I was curious so I decided I would give it a try. I believe it cost $8.


Sally Hansen Salon Effects

I have used this product before and love that I can have a cool design on my nails that I didnt have to do myself. A select few were on sale for 75% off and only had to pay $2. Im going to keep this one on hand to use for Valentines day since its a cute pink style.



Loreal Undying Ember Lipstick

There were a selct few of lipsticks on their way out. I picked up two darker neutrals for me. Or what I consider neutrals. This was 50% off and ended up being $4.

This is a bit redder than what it really is. But its a smooth formula and I cant wait to use it.



Intensely Mauve

This is the next color is something I wouldnt get since I tend to not like mauves. I am more of a bold girl but since it was on sale why the heck not



Wet and Wild Mega Shield Lip Color

The next sale was on Wet and Wild it was buy one get one half off. They only cost $2.99 any ways. I picked up Its a Girl and Pink Slip. I went with some cute everyday pink colors. When I put the sample swatches on my hand it went on as silky smooth.


That was my haul. I love hitting sales like that. I will be doing reviews on them soon!


The Best $1 You Will Ever Spend For A Concealer

17 Nov


Sorry for the bad picture, but you can tell I have been using this for awhile and it’s been well loved by the rubbed out name. I bought this about a month ago and been recently using it more since I have been having the case of the dark circles.   E.L.F. always has some great products for great prices for someone on a budget.  When I bought this I was out of my own concealer and pretty much broke. I am very happy to report that you can find this at Target for a whole $1 at regular price! How amazing is that?


[Excuse the cracked out nails] I got the apricot beige just because I like to get a concealer a shade darker than my skin tone to have that maximum coverage, plus you can always blend it when you put your foundation over it.

To get an idea of the color, keep in mind that I am pretty fair skinned


That’s what it looks like on my skin and what it looks like blended in.  Pretty nice right?  I hope this is true but when testing out items like this they say use the back of the hand since it’s closest to your face tone.


Here is what the coverage is like.  I have no make up on [gasp the horror, that’s why your only seeing my eyeballs lol].On your left is me using the concealer, I look pretty even.  The right, you can see the dark under my inner corner of my eye and down, definitely not even.

So if you have a $1 burning in your wallet and need some eye savior cream then go hit Target and get his amazing concealer, I promise you, you won’t be disappointed. In fact with e.l.f. I’m never disappointed in their products.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Products Score

23 Oct

lips 017

About a week ago I was in Rite Aide scoping out their sale end cap and I came upon this score. They had their limited edition colors on sale regular price $7.99 marked down to $3.99 and I couldn’t pass it up!  I bought 3 of their lipsticks and two of their lip glosses.  I’ve purchased their lipstick brand before but not their lip gloss, but now that I have I can’t believe what I have been missing on the glosses! They are super lustrous and just feels amazing on my lips, not sticky at all.

The top pink color is called Berry Brilliance and the purple is Lavender Lavish.  I really can’t say enough how much I love these two colors and the product over all. The applicator is amazingly soft!

Next up the lipsticks. I really liked 2 of the 3. The really dark purple I’m going to have to really exfoliate my lips before I apply it and try to layer it with a pretty lip gloss with it to make it less severe.  I’m thinking some type of gold or silver gloss might be really pretty.

The first lipstick is called Fuchsia Fierce.  The name pretty much says it all. My lighting was kind of cruddy in my bathroom and the color pops much brighter in person.  Next to my Urban Decay Anarchy I have to say this pink is fantastic!  I like putting the gloss over it to make it a bit more pink, kind of Barbie pink if you will.

lips 022 lips 035

Next is Midnight Plum.  This is the dark one as you can tell!  I really love this color but it’s not doing it for me by itself.  I don’t like the lavender gloss over it, since it’s to much contrast. I think something clear with accent color/glitter might go better. If you have any suggestion to lighten it up some let me know!

lips 024 lips 036

Lastly this is my favorite out of the lot.  It’s called Violet Intrigue.  It’s such a pretty color and with the lavender gloss over it, it is magical.  Really I felt magically with it on! Check it out……you can tell in my eyes how magical I’m feeling20131012_135611_resized

Here is a sample swatch

lips 027

From left to right:  Violet Intrigue, Midnight Plum, Fuchsia Fierce, Lavender Lavish, and Berry Brilliance.

If you like bold colors I would suggest trying to find these colors or at least try their glosses out, I can’t say how much I love these!

Top O’the evening to you

18 Mar


Today has been an uneventful rainy Sunday. It wasn’t till late afternoon till the boyfriend and I went out and got a bite to eat and hit up Target. As you can see I did wear my green out. I did go light and natural in the makeup. I used my Uband Decay eye potion primer in Sin as my shadow then used my Sephora brand liquid eyeliner in glitter green. Then topped it off with my Forever Makeup Smokey lash mascara and blush by NARS in Orgasm. Might I suggest for everyone to buy it. Its worth the price, it last long, and works on every skin tone.



Tomorrow Ill be reviewing two new makeup items I bought today at Target which was the BB cream foundation and Maybelline 24 hour tattoo eye shadow. Stay beautiful!
