Drugstore Deals: Eyeshadow

Hey yall,

So pretty much.. If you haven’t heard of the Maybelline Color Tattoo eye shadows, you’re completely missing out! I’ve been seeing them on blogs for a long time and keep thinking about buying them, so on Cyber Monday I bought two! To say the least – I’m obsessed.

These are all that I’ve been using for the past week. No brushes needed – they pretty much take about 30 seconds to put on and look like you spent a ton of time on your eye makeup.

Awkward selfie But you see my point :)

Ringing in at only $6.99, these are a great deal. And right now at ulta they’re BOGO 50% off. Happy shopping! :)

Cyber Monday-Rewind

Hey yall,

So I finally got my huge ulta order from cyber Monday ( which took way too long in my opinion) but one of their deals was that if you spent $60, you got a 19-piece makeup and beauty set. So.. Voila!

I chose the silver set, and I was shocked at how much was REALLY in it! Today I tried out 3 products and loved them. I’ve been wanting to try Smashbox’s primer for so long, and it felt amazing (we can see how it holds up later), the brow gel was something super new for me which looks really natural, and the bare minerals mascara had a super cool twisty wand that worked amazing!

There are SO many amazing products in here – several perfume samples including Gucci and Juicy, shampoo and conditioner, face masks and cleansers, and so much more! I won’t bore you with the whole list (unless you want it) but this was an amazing buy.. For free! Did you do cyber Monday shopping? Get one of these sets? Let me know!

Also.. Have you entered my giveaway??!

DIY Lip Scrub

Hey yall,

Hope everybody had a wonderful weekend! I’m still suffering from a cold so I don’t think it’s possible for me to be rested but I definitely got to relax AND finally have thanksgiving with my family.

And now, unfortunately, it’s Monday again.. I’m TOO ready for the short work week in just two weeks. And that means Christmas is in two weeks. And I haven’t even started shopping. So there’s that..

But today I’m featuring a little yummy DIY lip scrub. I think this is actually my first DIY I’ve ever featured! I’m not the craftiest person, but when something is this easy, I’m in.

When it gets cold outside my lips get crazy dry, and scrubs are the perfect solution. I’m semi new to exfoliants, but they’ve been life changers for my skin care and beauty routine! This one only has 3 ingredients:

Brown Sugar
Honey
Vanilla Extract

IMG_2651.JPG

And I promise my bowl isn’t dirty.. Some of the black has just come off.. Oops!

So I basically threw in about 3 spoonfuls of brown sugar into a small mixing bowl.

Then, I added a little bit of honey at a time – just enough to make the sugar damp when I mixed it.

IMG_2652.JPG

Finally, I dropped in a little bit of vanilla extract for taste and to make the mixture smooth. Then voila! You have yourself a (super tasty) lip scrub. So apply and scrub away!

You can place it in a small container for convenience – like my cute Cuban coffee cup (or something with a lid unless you’re lazy like me). I made just enough that I’ll use it up before it dries out, but be sure to keep it covered or protected for sanitary reasons and to keep the moisture in.

Enjoy!

And PS – I’m putting up a giveaway soon (aka tomorrow), so follow me on bloglovin so you don’t miss it!

Budget Buys – Drugstore Foundation

Hey yall,

I’m so excited right now.. I found a drugstore foundation that I love!

IMG_2640.JPG

IMG_2639.JPG

This Revlon Photoready Foundation is super light-weight, medium to high coverage, with great blending ability! I unfortunately woke up today feeling 1000x worse from a cold and this foundation saved my face and covered up my bags under my eyes and splotches.. at least I hope it did! Haha!

IMG_2641.JPG

Forgive my semi-miserable face since I’m not feeling too hot whatsoever, but I’m loving this product. Ringing up at less than $10, it really holds up to the test. It’s a great alternative for my usual high-end foundation. My all time favorite (NARS Sheer Glow) was too dark for my skin and I just wanted something quick so I stopped by Target and found this gem. It has the same sort of coverage and feel and even though the color I got is a little too light, it blends so well that you can’t even tell!

Have you tried this foundation? What are your favorite budget buys?
