5 Jan

image

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.

L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain Review

10 Jun

image

I recently saw the commercial for this new lip product. While I am not a fan of lip stains this one intrigued me because it was suppose to give a look of a gloss and longevity of a stain. I have tried stains in the past but what I disliked about them was I never knew what the color would set on my lips as since mine are pale and if I did not like it then I was kind of screwed because it would stay on for awhile and look like I drank to much Kool Aid.

I was at Target and decides on this fuschia color (I was battling between this one and the coral) called Infinate Fucshia.

Now the color when your looking right at the tube doesnt do the color justice when opened up…see what you think (I took these pics in the same place in same lighting amd no flash)

image

image

I think on the brush its more vibrant. This is what it looked like on around noon today

image

Here is the EXTREME close up

image

Now while I love the color here are my pros and cons

Pros: vibrant color, gloss like effect, does not act like a regular stain, did not bleed when not using a lip liner

Cons: took several swipes to get an even color, brush is to wide and on an angle to make difficult application, consistancy thin, and left a little ring of color stain around my lips a few hours later

Im not sure if you can fully see it on here but there is a slight color stain around my lips still that I cant get off 11 hours later

image

So to wrap this up. I am not totally sold yet on it. I am going to have to wear it a few times to get the hang of it or find out the trick to putting this on evenly. I do love this color and find it complimentry to my fair skin and would think it would look beautiful against any skin tone. I would like to try another color in it to see if the material consistancy is the same as well as if a lighter color would go on easier and less stain. I do believe I will end up with the coral.

Have you tried this particular brand? Or tried lip stains? If so what do you like or dislike with them?

Happy Monday! Since I did a little shopping at Target in the makeup isle I thought I would show you what I bought.

image

I had ran out of my foundation and of course I do not get paid till Friday, so I had to get a something on the cheap. I had sampled a BB foundation months back and decided to opt fot L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. cream in light. The tube says it has 4 beautifying actions in 1 (primes, correct, hydrates and perfects). I was a little skeptical at first since it come out white. I tested it on my hand it seemed a bit of orangey but decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. So this morning I put it on and was pleasantly surprised. I have no orange streaks and it blended in fantastic. The boyfriend said it looked like I was wearing no makeup so that is a bingo! Plus my skin is extra super soft.

image

Then I had a coupon for any Maybelline product and bought the 24 Hour Color Tattoo Metal eyeshadow. I’m not a fan of cream based shadows but I am in love with the color Gold Rush. Its like a gold leaf on my eyes. This is this morning around 6:30am

image

image

And this is at 6:45 pm

image

The color hasn’t faded a bit. I’m going to keep it on over night and see if its actually a 24 hour wear. The lip stick is a velvet matte stick from NARS in Sex Machine Ive had for awhile.

Have you all bought any new fun stuff? Stay Beautiful!
