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!

 

Mini Lush Haul 2

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I went to Lush a few days ago and yet bought a few things that I wasn’t planning to buy. We all know how that is! It’s impossible to walk into a Lush store and not buy anything especially the day that you go, its payday! 😛

lush haul

Anyways, I only bought 2 things thankfully and got a sample as well! Lots of people have been raving about their bath bomb so I figured why not purchase one! I bought the Rose Queen Bath Bomb and sadly I’ve heard that they’re discontinuing it. NooooOO! I love anything that smells like a rose, so I’m kind of sad about that! lol

bath bomb

I then also bought Hottie Massage Bar for those days that work takes a toll on me and those tired sore achy muscles! It smells a bit spicy like black peppers and then a sweet scent of vanilla. I love that scent!

massage bar

I had to get a sample of one of the fresh face masks, so I ended up getting a sample of the Don’t Look at Me face mask. They actually use ground rice that gently scrubs away dirt and oil and has a somewhat fruity scent like Fruit Loops! I honestly got the sample just because of the color. I mean have you ever seen a blue mask?!

dont look at me

What do you guys think? Any other must tries for Lush products?!

 

 

 

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.

dollar tree maybelline

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

.99 cent julie G

Elegant Edge, Dance in the Dark, and Passion

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

 

 

 

Brea Lush Haul and Review

Happy Thursday loves!

I finally went to visit a Lush for the first time in my life and finally purchased something I had my eye on forever. There’s only 2 Lush locations in my area. Anaheim and Brea, California both located in Orange County. As soon as you walk in, you can smell all their natural scents, like  the ocean and it smells clean and fresh. Karen the young lady that was helping me was awesome! She was very patient and didn’t rush me to buy anything. I went to look for the Dark Angels mask but alas, they were sold out, even online! She then showed me other types of cleansers and masks that are a little similar to Dark Angel.

She showed me Ocean Salt, Mask of Magnaminty, and the Coalface. Ocean Salt is a face and body scrub that smells like you’re at the ocean. It’s main ingredient is seaweed. (hence the ocean scent!)

lush haul

I ended up buying the Coalface and a small sample of the Mask of Magnaminty. I really do like the mask! First of all, it’s a clay mask which helps with oily skin and second of all the scent! The name itself is very clever, they somehow added “minty” in the name. I have a thing with anything mint, if there’s mint, I’m buying it. :p

mask of magnaminty

Coalface is like Dark Angels in a way but in a soap base. It’s a cleansing charcoal bar that you can use daily for normal to oily skin. It’s main ingredient, no surprise here, its powdered charcoal.

coalface

I definitely can’t wait to go to Lush again and try out more skincare products, I might even get those bathbombs everyone raves about!

Whats your favorite Lush product? Any recommendations?

 

Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish Haul

Happy Wednesday loves!

“There’s a difference between beauty and charm. A beautiful woman is one I notice. A charming woman is one who notices me.” -John Erskine

A few weeks ago, I was just browsing the beauty aisles at my local Rite Aid and found these gems on clearance!! All of the Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polishes were on clearance. Original price is about 5.99 and these were 75% off so they were $1.49. There was no way  I was going to pass these up! I’ve been wanting to purchase these for a long time but kept waiting till they had a good sale. The best thing about these polishes is that they are scented!!

revlon parfumerie

I got the:

*African Tea Rose: a pretty pink that smells like roses! This is the one I’ve wanted to buy since forever.

* Moonlight Woods: a metallic purple with a hint of blue. It smells like the Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods. (Go figure! :P)

*Wintermint: a sheer light green with a blue green glitter specks. Just like the shade says, it smells like Winterfresh gum! I’m pretty much a sucker for anything that smells minty so this is perfect.

*Surf Spray: a cool blue with blue shimmer. The scent reminds me of Irish Spring for some reason. It’s a fresh scent.

Swatches are coming soon! If only there was a way you all can smell the scents! lol 😛

Have you guys tried any of the Revlon Parfumerie? What do you think?

ISSE 2015 Sample Haul

Hi loves!

A few weeks ago, I went to the International Salon and Spa Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center. It’s a 3 day event where licensed makeup artists, cosmotologists, estheticians and pretty much any one in the personal wellness industry. Estheticians usually aim to go on Sunday and Monday because there’s actually more skincare booths and classes. For the past 2 years now, I’ve been going to the Saturday show mainly because it’s the cheapest day. (Bad I know!)

I went for the first time last year and was there about 3 hours in advance. (You can blame it on misreading the schedule and being sick). I pretty much walked in there and felt so overwhelmed! Just imagine a convention center filled with every type of beauty product booth! Anyways, this year I was prepared and being more social and talkative, I scored so much samples!

Daiso Japan Haul Lakewood Grand Opening

Hi lovelies!

I’m so sorry I’ve been behind in my Friday Mani posts, been working these past 2 Fridays! But I’ll be sure to post this coming Friday.

There was a big grand opening for the Daiso Japan store in Lakewood, CA and that’s the closest one to my house. So when I heard there was a grand opening, I had to go and this was my first time actually going to a grand opening of any store. The doors opened at 10am but by the time I got there at 9am, there was already a line! For the first 200 customers with receipts, they would get a goodie bag at the end.

Daiso is a Japanese discount store where most of the products are $1.50 while some other products are $1.00 up to $3.00. It’s almost impossible to go into this store to buy one thing, but I can tell you for sure: you’ll definitely buy more than one thing!

I do admit I do think I did go a bit overboard with shopping at this store!

haulBeauty View 

This is a mirror that can be used as standing type by folding the lid in backwards. This works perfectly for someone who is trying to do their eyebrows, put on their contacts or practice their eyeliner technique. I definitely plan to use it for those purposes. It’s has a cute pink hue to it with pink flowers on the cover.

Hair Pin with Mirror Case Set

This is a small black sophisticated box that carries your bobby pins and it did also includes 25 bobby pins. When you open it up, there’s a mirror. I really do love the design of this case on the top! It’s detailed with two roses.

bobby pin case

Cosmetic Cotton

This contains 150 sheets which you can use for makeup removal and nail polish removal and is 100% cotton.

Face Towel

It’s 100% cotton and comes in different colors and I chose navy. It’s always a good idea to have one towel used just for cleansing the face instead of using a towel for hair and the face. Honestly when I see this color, I automatically think of the Cookie Monster!

face towel

Foot Mask Pack

When I first saw this, I was surprised! A mask for your feet?! I’ve heard of the baby soft feet product but not this. I’m definitely post this on Instagram when I try it out.

Kleancolor Nail Lacquer and Kleancolor Wizard Pads

I got this nail lacquer in 139 Pastel Pink. The name says it all. I definitely need more summer polishes so I figured try this new brand out! As for the Wizard Pads, it is nail polish remover pads and cuticle oil. I like how it’s easy to use with no mess. Only recommendation is that if you do use the Wizard Pads, I suggest you use it on a light colored polish or any polish for that matter that doesn’t have any top coat on it because you’ll have to use about 3 pads for both hands.

Sumi Charcoal Facial Cleansing Foam

I’ve heard the awesome reviews about using products that include charcoal. For only $1.50 I figured it’s worth a try. I can’t wait to try this!

charcoal cleanser

I alos went the next day (Sunday) to see the winning nymbers for the raffles but alas I didn’t win. 😦 However, I did pick up 2 more things!

Sleeping Pack 

It’s a gel that you apply on your face at night and it makes the skin moist while sleeping. What really made me want to buy this was the main ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid!

Rose Contact Lens Case

I always need an extra case for my contacts because for some reason, I always lose them! When I saw this, I had to buy it. First of all, it’s pink and its roses. I don’t know if I already mentioned this but I am in love with all floral things especially roses.

contact case

Lastly they had a promotion the 1st day that was where if you were one of the 200 people with a receipt, you would get a goodie bag. This included two types of snacks: Shrimp Chips and Wheat Noodle Crackers, A Tea’s Tea black tea latte, Vitamin C tablets, Orange Gummies, 2 types of cookies and a yogurt drink.

Hope you guys and gals enjoyed this haul!
