Recent Beauty Haul

Happy first day of summer loves!!

I don’t know how the weather is over where you guys are but, it’s only 11am here in LA and already the sun is blaring down at us!

To kick off the summer spirit, I’ve got 2 honorable mentions of my beauty purchases that I’ve been loving lately!

I’ve been on the hunt for L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara and had the hardest time finding it. I went to Target and found out they sold out within the second day! Then went to Ulta and it still wasn’t delivered to them so last idea I had was to order it online. I did find it online on Amazon but it shouldn’t ship until another 2 weeks!

I plan to try it out for a few weeks and will post a review on my blog, so I won’t talk more about this till then!

As I was at Ulta looking for my mascara, I came across the Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar. I feel like this is a great dupe for the Lush Coalface for half the price. It’s even got a peppermint scent to it. So it feels great after a long day while your face is feeling refreshed.

 

Seche Premier Colour “Wicked”

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you’re all enjoying your Monday!

I stopped by Sally’s Beauty and found a 75% clearance sale on many nail polishes and opted to try out the Seche Premier Colour 2 Lacquer. I always see the Seche Vite base coats but didn’t realize they had a color selection!

This is the Seche Premier Colour in the shade of Wicked 83328. It’s a dark pastel lavender shade and only used 2 coats to get this color.

 

CVS Revlon Nail Polish Deal 4/16/2017-4/22/2017

Happy Wednesday loves! 

I don’t always post about nail polishes twice a week, but I couldn’t pass this opportunity!

CVS has a deal: $4.99 Revlon Nail Polishes and get $3 back in ExtraCare Reward bucks. 

To my surprise even the set was $4.99 which comes with a ColorStay Polish with a Top Cost. This usually costs about $12. 

I suggest running over to CVS and score this deal!! 

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s On the Go Kit

Happy Monday loves!

Have you ever went into a store knowing you were just going to browse and half an hour later, you buy more than you expected?! TJ Maxx is that store for me. I always have to take a look at their beauty products. This day was no different! I came across an OPI nail kit and once I realized it was Aubrey Hepburn, I knew I needed to buy it! Not only do I think Aubrey Hepburn was a great role model but Breakfast at Tiffany’s is probably one of my favorite movies.

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s On the Go Kit came with a few products which intrigued me to say the least.

The kit included the Nail Envy Original which is a nail strengthener, an Avoplex Cuticle Oil-to-go, Avoplex High Intensity Hand & Nail Cream and 3 Wipe Off! Acetone-Free Lacquer Remover Wipes.

I can’t wait to try Nail Envy because for some reason my nails have been quicker to chip than usual. 😦

FYI, this deal only cost me $9.99, which isn’t bad considering that OPI is somewhat an expensive brand!

 

Covergirl “195 Nemesis”

Happy Tuesday loves!

Hope you all had a great week, sorry I’ve been a bit MIA, work has been a bit hectic. I wanted to change things a bit, and so I’m posting a Mani Tuesday! :p

I was getting tired of wearing pastel spring colors and wanted something dark again. I opted for the Covergirl 195 Nemesis. It’s a dark wine red, and had to apply 2 coats of it to get it this dark.

What do you guys think?!

Influenster Fierce Voxbox

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

I think by now you’ve heard of Influenster by now, but if you haven’t, its a review type of website and if you’re lucky enough you can get a freebie box. It always changes from foods, beauty, fashion or even a mixture of both! Every time you finish these badges, you can get qualified for another Voxbox.

I was lucky enough to get the Fierce Voxbox which included:

Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Shampoo and Blow Out Creme

I love using Shea Moisture and trying out new products from their line. The shampoo and blow out are both made from Argan Oil, organic shea butter and almond milk. It smells so good! Retail price for the blow out creme is $10.99 and the shampoo is $8.99

Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Anime “Kiss Goodnight”

I really can’t get over this color! Kandee Johnson was the first youtube beauty guru I ever watched. So to see her progress and collab with Sinful Colors, I was ecstatic that this came in the VoxBox! I’ve seen them sold at Walgreens for $1.99.

Madam C.J. Walker Softening & Silkening Brassica Seed Oil

It’s a lightweight hair oil that smooths and creates terrific shine for heat-styled hair. It has a light blend of spun sugar and red velvet cream to refresh hair. I love to use this for my baby hairs that just can’t keep calm! This hair oil retails for $26 and can find it at Sephora.

I’ve been using Vaseline ever since I was a kid, it’s never gone out of style. I just recently started to use Vaseline for my night cream. It’s still too soon to see results but I’m excited! You can find this at any store for around $2.50 depending on where you shop.

L’Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Care Review

Happy Wednesday loves!

I recently took the plunge and dyed my hair a medium red brown, so when Influenster sent me the L’Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Shampoo, Conditioner and 10-in-1 Elixir, I couldn’t have been more excited! I don’t know about you, but when I dye my hair, I feel like sometimes the color dies down and fades away within a few weeks. Or maybe that’s just the reds. :p

The Claims:

*For the Shampoo and Conditioner, it claims that it’s a moisturizing formula with Rosemary flower botanical that quenches dryness,and keeps color pure for up to 4 weeks.

*Elixir: Nourishes, Hydrates, Soothes, Repairs, Density, Smooth, Textures, Strengthens, more softness and adds shine.

**100% Sulfate-Free, Paraben-Free, Free of Harsh Salts and Dye-Free

My Impressions:

I personally love it. The shampoo and conditioner both smell heavenly (a hint of rosemary and floral scents). My favorite would have to be the 10-in-1 elixir. It really did make my hair feel softer and hydrated.

I definitely look forward trying the Deep Nourishing, Repair & Defend and the Frizz-Defy lines!
