I recently picked up a few items; most of them are re-purchases or back ups. While others I am trying for
the first time. I am going to mention something I forgot to haul awhile ago, but I recently picked it up a back up and felt the need to share it with you all. So with all that said, let's get started!
Let's begin with my Ulta Purchases:
- Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Cafe: This is a repurchase. I have been using this for a year now and I love it. It is super lightweight and easy to blend. Plus it isn't' too bright, so it is perfect for a no makeup makeup look.
- NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso: Again this is a repurchase. I have been raving about this pencil for the last couple of months and I will not go back to the Brow Wiz as long as this exist. It it literally the same product, except it is a bit more waxy. Which I like because I have curly brow hairs and this keeps them in place.
- Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater: I have been raving about this for several months now. I can't stop re-purchasing it! I love it!
- 3 mini salon boards: These are just nail files. You can never have too many on hand, in my opinion!
Moving onto my Amazon Purchases:
- 20 pairs of natural lashes: My friend said she picked these up and loved them, do I decided to try them. They were like $5.00 so I said why not. I have not used these yet, but they look like Ardell lashes. Hopefully they preform the same.
- Mehron Skin Prep Pro: I have heard amazing this about this and I knew I needed it in my life. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and I recently mentioned it in my special occasion foundation routine. This absolutely prolongs the wear of my makeup. When I say I don't sweat or get grease slick-ish with this product I mean it! I really don't experience any oiliness with this skin prep. I highly recommend this for oily skin people who are looking for something to pro-long the wear of their makeup on special occasions. I don't recommend using this everyday, because it contains alcohol.
- Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer: This is the product I meant to tell you dolls about but, for some reason it skipped my mind. I picked it up again because I love it! It will makeup any product waterproof. I will not say that this matiffies it does give the skin a slight glow. Which is fine for me, because I don't like to look super matte. Again I wouldn't use this on an everyday basis because this contains a high amount of alcohol.
- Derma Roller: I have been hearing how amazing these are for hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and more. I felt like I needed this in my life, so I picked on up. I will do a review in a few months after I have tried this and hopefully seen results.
Onto K-Mart Purchases:
- ELF Lip Exfoliator: My mom has had this for a while and I stole hers and LOVED it. So I decided to pick up another. It smells awesome and works like a charm.
Moving right into my Walgreens Purchases:
- Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick in Matte Blush: I gave my other one to my friend and I NEEDED to replace it. This is one of my favorite lipsticks at the moment.
- Jordana Easyliner for lips in Coco Loco: I ran out of this lipliner and if you have been following me for a while, then you know I ride for this product. Its the most perfect reddish brown lipliner. I LOVE this.
- Sunscreen in SPF 50: I needed to get some sunscreen to protect my skin, so I did. This was on sale at my local Walgreens. It believe the sale was buy one get on 50% off.
- Chapstick Lipbalm with SPF 30: You have to protect every part of you. I have a body sunscreen, a face sunscreen, a hair sunscreen, and a lip sunscreen. The sun can do your skin a lot of harm. PLEASE protect yourself. Reapply sunscreen every 60 to 80 minutes of sun exposure. If you feel the need to "tan" use self tanner. A tan is not worth cancer.
- Wet n Wild Build A Foundation Foundation Brush: A few weeks back I hauled the other two brushes in this collection and I figured I should complete my collection with this brush.
- Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in I'm Getting Sunburned: A few weeks back I picked up the Walking on Eggshells trio and I told you how much I loved it. When I was in Walgreens and passed the Wet n Wild section I felt like I needed to pick up another. So I picked up this one. Hopefully it works as well as the other trio.
Moving right along to CVS Purchases:
- Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows: I had couple of these before, but I liked them so much I decided to pick up some more. (Plus they were on sale) I picked up the shades: Bella Gold, Bella Bronze, Bella Cappuccino, Bella Rouge, Bella Emerald, and Bella Teal.
- Milani Liquid Eye Liquid Like Eye Liner Pencil in Aqua: I love this eye liner! It is super creamy and pigmented. Oh, and it lasts FOREVER! I need to pick up more shades. It's amazing!
Onto Target Purchases:
- Covergirl Queen Natural Hue Bronzer in Ebony Bronze 120: I have been binge watching Women of Color YoutTubers. As a darker women sometimes it is hard to find products that work for your complexion, so I decided to see what other women of color were using. A lot of the WOC YouTubers mentioned this bronzer and I felt like I needed it in my life. I haven't used it yet, but I am super excited. I will review it once I get a real feel for the texture and longevity, etc. etc.
Moving into my local thrift store:
- 3 Shorts: All three were denim. One was dark wash and distressed. One was light wash as distressed. The last one was a plain light denim pair of shorts.
- 1 Slouchy T-Shirt: It was from Converse. The shirt was made up of an oatmeal color on the front and light tan color on the back. There was a large deep tan pocket across the left side of the shirt. The shirt fits loosely, has a scoop neck style, and made of cotton.
- 1 Bomber Jacket: It's a gray jacket from H&M.
Next, Sephora Purchases:
- Too Faced Better than Sex mascara: I really like this mascara. It give length, volume, and curl all at the same time. I totally recommend it!
- Smith's Rosebud Salve: Youtubers make this sound like the greatest lip balm ever, so I had to pick it up and see what all the fuss was about!
Last, but not least Walmart Purchases:
- Salon Perfect Demi Wispies False Lashes: These are just garden variety lashes. They are nice and super inexpensive.
- Revlon Precision Dark Lash Glue: I am allergic to latex and I needed to re-up on my lash glue. I already have the clear glue, but I decided to pick up the darker color.
- Simple Cleansing Micellar Water: I have heard a bunch of amazing things about this and I figured it was worth a try. I am looking for an amazing makeup remover that won't burn my eyes and someone told me this would do the trick. I will test it out and review it in a week or so!
- Mitchum Women's Deodorant: I have been using Secret for years and lately it doesn't seem like it's working so, I am going to try this one! Hopefully it works out!
- Yoga Shorts: I needed something to workout in, lounge in, and/or sleep in. These are comfy and super inexpensive.
That's all folks!
I have been trying to not buy the entire store when I go to the store but, I am an addict. I need help lol. I hope you guys enjoy watching me binge on makeup!
