NYX I Love St. Thomas Look

I finally decided to try one of the NYX Caribbean collection palettes and came up with this look using I Dream of St. Thomas!

I used the shimmery silver shade on the lid and inner eye and used the shimmery black shade in the crease and outer corner. Then I highlighted and softened the look a bit with the light shimmery gold shade!

So far, I really like this palette! I wish it had some mattes though! = (

Drugstore Haul!: L'Oreal, Wet n Wild, Maybelline

Of course I can’t resist a cute stand of lippies or blush so it’s no surprise that I walked out of Walgreens with a few things!

As you can see I picked up a few glosses, some lipsticks, and a super adorable blush! I’ve tried L’Oreal’s Lip Infallible lip glosses so in picked up a couple more in sheer candy pink, beige nude and berry. I also grabbed a couple of Wet n Wild’s super cute and super cheap (around $1!) Silk Finish Lipsticks in super bright hues of pink! I also snagged a Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush (which feels sooooo soft and creamy!!) in a gorgeous pinky peach color!

Check out the swatches!
