Walmart Haul

image

Picked these up recently and they are all re-fills EXCEPT for the salon perfect lashes and lipstick.  The eyeliners & mascara & powder are my makeup bag staples.  LOVE the products, the colors and the way it wears all day.

The lashes have purple and black lashes that were made to compliment brown eyes (my eye color).  So I’m excited to try it out for new years!  It also comes with a purple eye liner so let’s see if it brings out the brown~ =)

Color Whisperer lipstick is my faaaaave right now.  These lipsticks go on as smooth as lip butters (which i love).  These don’t last very long so you have to keep reapplying throughout the day, but I love the color, amount of pigment it leaves, and the feel of them on my lips!

Fall Lipstick

I finally got the chance to try out this fall’s new lipstick trend: dark red/wine lips.

THE BEST PART of this entire trial?  I found the colors in my own lipstick collection!  I had bought a few darker colors a year or two ago and found that it didn’t really compliment my skin the same way bright colors did (bright pinks/reds).  But with the help of this trend coming back, I gave it another try. =)

Colors:

NARS: Damaged (matte color)

Fresh: Sugar Plum (added on top for some shine and moisture)

The light wasn’t on my side, so these pics are a bit dark.

Sephora Delivery

I ordered a few things from sephora recently for myself and for some extra goodies to pad 2 birthday presents.

I love sephora~~ i love makeup and I love trying new things out.  Although I like to stick to specific color families…it doesn’t hurt to experiment once in a while right?

This time, I got some fall nail polish colors, a variety of perfumes (to test out and for traveling) and a hot pink lipstick from NARS. =)

NYX Makeup Haul

A couple of Sunday’s ago, I went to this little Persian store near my place and picked up some fun makeup!  I’m a huge fan of NYX and love the variety of products and colors available to me =)

 Eye Shadow: Navy Blue

Nail Polish: LOVE LOVE LOVE the pink/purple glitter.  So festive, flirty and fun!

Lipsticks: 571A Hot Pink & 643 Femme

Absolutely LOVED these lipsticks.  The pigment was rich, the color wasn’t too glossy or matte, and it stayed it had great staying power on my lips.  I wouldn’t say these lipsticks were super moisturizing~ but that’s probably why it stayed on my lips longer than other lipsticks (like Revlon‘s Lip Butter)

Target Haul

Went to Target with my co-worker today during lunch and found a TON of unnecessary items that I HAD to buy! (of course)

Starting from the top…

1. Herbal Essences Condition in Hello Hydration.  It has a coconut-y smell that I LOVE in the summer.  Plus the extra hydration helps heal my hair from the harsh sun, chlorine and beach (salt water).

2. Grapefruit Scrub by Up and Up.  Basically the same as the Neutrogena one but way cheaper.

3. Visibly Bright face wash by Neutrogena.  I have never tried this before but I’ve been looking to mix up my skin care in the morning so I hope this will “visibly brighten” my skin. ( hehe pun intended)

4. Nail Polish.  Up and Up in the nail strengthening line.  Super cheap and works great!

5. Rimmel bronzer.  I’ve bought this before and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.  It’s easy to use and has a rich pigment. (#027 Sun Dance)

6. Maybelline Volum’Express Mascara: The Mega Plush.  I’ve never tried this one before but I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this brand of mascara.  Not only does it make my eyelashes look 10x thicker, but it keeps my curled eyelashes…curled!  Most mascaras are so heavy that they weigh them back down but this line of Maybelline is AMAZZING. (#275 very Black)

7. Maybelline Master Drama by Eyestudio.  I bought this color a few weeks ago (here and here) in Midnight Master.  It glided on so smoothly, stayed in place all day (with the help of NYX eye primer) and it was INCREDIBLY rich in pigment.  LOVED that.  Therefore, with my penchant for buying things I love in every color…I bought #405 Vibrant Violet today.  Can’t wait to try it!  Purple really brings out my brown eyes (since they’re lighter than most Asian eyes) and it helps me to line my bottom lashes without a harsh black.

8. And FINALLY…more lip butters from Revlon!!  I have 3 of these already and can’t get enough of them.  They are creamy, rich, have a wide variety of colors and they’re such a steal for under $8!  I actually loved my #045 Cotton Candy so much that I bought a replacement today.  My second color is a lighter, more pastel shade of pink: #055 cupcake.  Can’t wait to add these to my lip collection.  I swear adding a little color to your lips (clear gloss or lipstick) really changes your appearance and brings your makeup together.  LOVE.

and that’s all folks!  Will let you know how these products work out!  If you have a brand or color that you love, please share!  I’d love to try it out~  xoxo

Accessories of the Day

Friday was one of my off days and I decided to make it as productive as possible! =)

Here are the acessories I wore.  I tried to mix things up and pair items that I normally don’t wear together~ but that’s the beautfy of accessorizing!!  It’s always more fun to put together odd combinations and make it fit together. xoxo
