NOTD + Hauls + NYX Lipstick Swatch

Quick side note, I lost 10lbs in a month. Woo-hoo.

AND - Why is it raining in CALIFORNIA?
I'm tired of this wonky ass weather.
I'm ready to for my Spring Break and do, um, nothing.
Nothing or dance all hot and sexy like this pretty young thing.

So my flash kinda brightened up the nail polish shade because it's a deeper purple than a bright pink polish. I really love it. Got many compliments off of it. But ya know with cheaper polishes, they tend to chip super easily so a topcoat is a must.

Sinful Colors in - Dream On
Sally Hansen Hard As Nail Strengthening Topcoat

This sinful shade dries matte - so topcoat is really needed here.



Walgreens Haul

Got BOGO-Free in Revlon products so picked up the Age Defying Spa Foundation and Concealer. (Review on this soon)

Sinful Polishes in:
Daddy's Girl
Rich In Heart
Good Girl
Vacation Time
Easy Going


ELF & Ms. Cuppycakes Haul + Riteaid


Also BOGO-Free in Riteaid on Maybelline products so picked up Colossal mascara.
[not pictured]
Neutrogena Spot treatment (WORKS WONDERS! My zit was gone in a day!)
Grapeseed Peeling Mask
Back Scrub

Ms. Cuppycakes: NYX Lipsticks and Red Cherry Lashes (one of those lashes is for the contest winner, forgot to put it in the other photo)
ELF: Crease Brushes, Eye Lash, Eyeshadow Brush, Pen Liquid Liner & flat top brush.



NYX Lipstick Swatches


And here is a comparison of both ELF Brushes...

Quick review:
The blending eye brush is $1.
Contour Eye brush is $3.

The blending brush does shed but blends well and is soft.
Contour brush does not shed yet the bristles are too short to the metal wand, you can easily scrap yourself if rushing but blends and adds color well too.

I like both products but both have their cons and pros - worth the money though.

That is all.

DON'T FORGET THE CONTEST!
I wanna see more entries!

  6. Congrats on the weight loss! Dream On looks so pretty on you. The matte-ness of it scared me, but now I'm going to try it out with a good topcoat.

    We have similar taste. I purchased Daddy's Girl (finally found it!) and Vacation Time the other day.

  10. Colossal works for you?? It kept flaking on me :( AND straightened the hell out of my lashes. Have you tried Lash Stiletto yet? Volume is non-existent, but I'm sure if I tried 5 or so coats it might work. The length is pretty amazing, though!
    P.S. 10 lbs in a month?! What's your secret?! ;)
