CVS NYX Weekly Shopping Deal

Happy Wednesday loves!

Hope you’re all doing well, we’re halfway till the weekend.

I’m back again with a CVS Beauty haul and a deal!

If you buy $15 worth of NYX cosmetics you’ll get $5 back in Extra Care Rewards.

You can easily buy 3 items for $5 and there you go, you’ll get $5!

I got 2 retractable eyeliners and 1 eyeshadow base.

For the eyeliners, I bought Black and Aqua Green and I just love the green, especially as a waterline color.

As for the eyeshadow base, it’s actually a smokey eye base!

It’s actually black, instead of the usual nude and the white shade.

 

Hope you all have fun drugstore shopping! 😀

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette

Happy Monday loves!

I’m changing things up this week since I’ve still got my gel nails on! This has been an over due eye shadow palette review that I completely forgot about! Back in Christmas season, CVS had a Wet n Wild palette kit which included an eye shadow palette, an eye primer, and an eyeliner. This has been in my makeup storage for quite some time and forgot about it. The only reason I remembered it was because I was wearing a green top and wanted to go for a green look, and I found the palette hiding. This palette has 6 shades, and is called Comfort Zone.

There’s 2 sets of shadow shades: a rosey taupe set and an emerald green set.

The Rosey Taupe Set:

 

  1. A light golden shimmery brow bone color. I use this for the brow bone and also sometimes in the inner corner for a pop of color!
  2. A rosey eyelid shade: This usually my go to eyelid color when I want a rosey pink look. I love how its light and actually very buildable.
  3. A medium bronze crease shade: I wish the picture would do the color justice! It’s a medium bronze with  metallic shimmer. I sometimes use this as an eyelid shade for the days I want a basic bronze look
  4. A darker brown definer shade: This is probably one of the darkest shade in this palette! It has a burgandy reddish glitter to it. I love using this as an eyeliner for those days I don’t want to use a gel or liquid liner.

The Emerald shades:

I’ve read that people who use an emerald shade for brown eyes makes the eyes pop. So I love this part of the palette!

  • A. a bronze browbone: Again I use this for mostly the inner eye. It’s such a pretty bronze taupe shimmer.
  • B. a spring green eyelid: This is actually my favorite color from the whole palette. It’s a pretty shimmery green that is buildable. It looks really pretty on top of the Revlon ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow in Pistachio.
  • C. a grayish brown with a shimmery top crease. It’s a bit harder to blend in compared to the others.
  • D. a red brown with a blue-teal duochrome and frosty top. I love this is shade as well just because it’s so different!

There you have it loves! My very first Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Palette Review. What do you guys think?!

 

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.

 

Dollar Store Beauty Haul

Happy Wednesday loves!

Hope you’re all doing great and enjoying the summer!

I’ve recently been working at a few different Dollar Trees and have been finding some good drugstore brands there! (Probably the only pro about working inventory and seeing other Dollar Trees)

dollar store haul

At Dollar Tree, I found a few Maybelline Color Tattoo Pigments so of course I grabbed it! Honestly, my local Dollar Tree doesn’t have many product options, so when I see more products in other stores, I’ll definitely go for it.

40 Improper Copper, 5 Never Fade Jade, and 60 Buff & Tuff.

Out of the 3, my favorites are Improper Copper and Never Fade Jade. Buff & Tuff is more of a sparkly champagne that doesn’t really come out strong.

So at the .99 cent cent only store, there’s a section of makeup products that aren’t .99 cents but under $1.99. I found a few Julie G nail polishes that are only sold at Rite Aid. These gems are 0.99 cents and I purchased 3! Just for now at least lol

Have you guys found anything special at your local dollar stores?! 🙂

 

 

 

Massive CVS Beauty Haul

Hey Loves,

I hope everyone is doing great in this winter-ish weather. Brr it’s been freezing lately!

I went to CVS Pharmacy a few days back and I think I may have done quite some damage. haha :p

They have this end of the year sale on clearance, ranging from 25%, 50% or 75% off some beauty products. Every store varies, so I would check out a few of them.

They also had a sale where if you buy $20 worth of makeup from ANY Rimmel,  Maybelline,Physicians Formula and  CoverGirl Face, Eyes or Outlast Nail.

When you buy $10 or more on Revlon, you get $4 back in ExtraCare bucks.

Let’s just say I took advantage of everything that I liked!

cvs haul

The Essence of Beauty cleansing sponges were 75% off while the original price was $4.79 and I only paid $1.19 so I bought 2.

Some of the Covergirl Outlast Nail glosses were 50% which isn’t a bad deal. I got “Out of the Blue 295” and “Always Autumn 260”. Both are pretty colors and they last long! They were originally $5.99 and I only paid $2.99.

I then got the CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in “Lime Green Flame 315” and the CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in “Lime Light 310”. I had a coupon that was $4.50 off 2 CoverGirl Eyes. You could find the same coupon in a few magazines. The total of those together with the coupon was $7.98. Not bad at all!

Then there was the Maybelline Limited Edition Shimmer Blush in ” 110 Plum Shimmer. I paid $8.99 for this one. It’s price was pretty steep but then again I do enjoy these limited edition products.

So because I had bought over $20 worth of Maybelline and CoverGirl, I got to choose a free tote bag. It was either between a black tote with big white polka dots or a black tote with leopard print. When I first saw this in the ad, I thought it was a cheap small tote, but when I saw it in person I knew I’d love it. This is what I picked.

Lastly I had to get a new foundation since the one I had didn’t do its job, so I got the Revlon ColorStay Foundation for Normal/Dry Skin in the shade “320 True Beige”. I paid $12.99 for it but I did get $4 dollars back so yaay!

I’d say this is was an eventful week for CVS and their deals! 🙂 I honestly can’t wait till I look at the other CVS stores and see their variety!

Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara

Hey Lovies!

Influenster and Rimmel were kind enough to send me a complimentary Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara that was in my Rose VoxBox. This comes into stores November 2013!

Here are a few pictures showing how the wand but the photos don’t do it justice at all! lol

Photo 3 (1)

It’s an hourglass shaped wand where the middle is thinner.

I  only have two cons I have with this is that

1. when you take out the wand, there’s so much excess mascara.

2. It’s really hard to apply the mascara on the bottom lashes.  I feel like the wand is really big that I might poke my eye with it especially if you have long bottom  lashes.

Grrr.

But other than that, I love it! It gives an illusion that your eyes have a wide look (which is great for me since I have small eyes). *Forgive my blah eyebrows*

As you can tell, there’s quite a difference when I’m not wearing the mascara and when I am.

*TIPS*

-Tightline your eyes before you apply the mascara

-Use an eyelash curler before you apply the mascara

-If you can find it, buy an eyelash guard where you can place it on your eye as you apply the mascara so you don’t get any excess on your lids.

I wanted to try a makeup look with the mascara so I tried this out!

It’s the WetnWild 2013 Holiday Limited Edition “No Neutral Ground”.
