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?!

 

Wet n Wild Here’s to the Wild Ones Review and Swatch!

Happy Monday loves!

Ahh I’ve been so missing and I’m so sorry. Things got a little hectic so I was away for awhile but I’m back again!

I hope you all had a great Halloween! I realized that mostly every season Wet n Wild comes out with a Limited Edition collection and this fall wasn’t an exception. I made it my mission to get all 6 nail polishes, something I’ve never done before! What I love about this, is that they all have a metallic finish!!

Happy Friday loves!

 

How are you all?! I figured I would change up this week and do my Mani day today instead. (Back to the old days!)

So in my last post, I mentioned that I bought some nail polishes at the .99 cent only store and oh dear lord, I love them! It also helps that its pretty darn cheap! I only paid .99 compared to going to Rite Aid and paying $3.99 or so.

I really love this color and how it changes color in the sun.

Revlon ColorStay Sunburst!

Happy Monday loves!

I hope you all are doing great! I’m so sorry for not posting as much as I used to, but been kind of busy with work! But I’m back. 🙂

I feel like I haven’t done a Mani Monday in forever. I scored this polish at the 99 cent store for only $1.99! Who would have thought you can find drugstore brands at the dollar store!

I’m wearing the Revlon ColorStay in the shade Sunburst. It’s a jelly type texture while I had to do a few layers for it to come out like that! The top coat on the middle finger is SinfulColor “Frenzy”.

What do you guys think?! 🙂 What’s your opinion about jelly polishes?

Revlon 260 Bold Sangria

Hi Lovelies!

I hope you all are doing great! This week I wanted to change up my nail polish since lately I’ve been doing the Covergirl Hunger Games edition of Mani Fridays.

I’m wearing Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in 260 Bold Sangria. It’s a medium deep purple cream shade. I definitely love it! With one coat, its very light but I did use a second coat which made it more dark. However there is still some patches where the color isn’t concentrated but its OK! I could easily use that nail as an accent nail and use a glitter coat on top if I wanted to.

I got this for a real good deal at CVS just this past week actually. After I scanned my CVS ExtraCare card at the magic red machine, I received a $3 off any Revlon Cosmetics and I also had a manufacture coupon as well that was $1 off. Not to mention, this specific color was 50% off with a pink sticker. I basically just paid the tax! 😀

P.S.!! If you do want to snag a few makeup products on clearance at CVS, always look for the pink, green or blue sticker that mentions it’s either 25%, 50% or 75% off. You will simply be amazed!

 

Revlon 730 Valentine

Happy Friday loves!!

I hope you all are having a great Friday and fun filled weekend ahead of you. Good luck to all who have finals coming up!

This weekend I’m wearing the Revlon 730 Valentines. It’s a classic red wine oldie that I totally forgot I had. I used the Orly Poli-Shield top coat.

I have a few upcoming reviews on the Lemongrass Spa products and can’t wait to post them!
