Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette Swatches

image

I’ve been holding on to this little beauty for quite a while but now that I have some free time I’m all over it! I caught this adorable 70s rollergirl themed palette a couple months ago during an Urban Decay online sale. It was on sale for about $13 and was an additional 20% off! I couldn’t control myself so I snatched it right up!

L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner Swatches & Review

If there is anything I can’t live without it’s definitely liner. I feel like liner can make or break a look. That’s why I think it’s really important to find a good liner.

image

And these beauties definitely meet the mark! They’re super rich, smooth and pigmented. They’re about $8 but totally worth it!

image

What I really love about these liners is that they’re super pointy! You can make both thin and thick lines with ease. Plus you get a lot of product at once so you won’t really have to sharpen often. The pencils are also small but not too small. They’re the perfect size for precision and control for me.

These are the darkest liners I’ve ever come across. Just one swipe gives you the perfect intensity! When L’Oreal said smoldering they meant it! These are perfect for smudging for the perfect natural smokey look! I wish they came in other colors other than brown and black but these are still a win!

Here’s some swatches!

They last all day without really losing its intensity! These do bleed a little in the corners but I find that setting with a powder eyeshadow really helps with that. Definitely a good buy!

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!

image

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!

I couldn’t resist Too Faced’s Vintage Sale! I’ve been lemming for some high end makeup for a while and decided to jump in with this sale! I placed my order for this palette (a steal at $15!) on the 4th and received it on the 10th. Pretty quick processing and shipping!

image

I cracked open the box to be greeted by a ton of super cute pink squiggly packing paper everywhere! So adorable!

At the moment, I’m a total budget beauty! I’m slowly making my way into the big girl world of makeup: high end cosmetics. In the mean time, I don’t plan on letting up on the drugstore good times!

Milani Glitzy Glamour Gloss Swatches & Review

Remember the Milani Baked Blushes I just couldn’t resist? Well along with those, I also picked up a couple of Milani’s Glitzy Glamour Glosses for about $6 each!

These were a total impulse buy for me. Before I walked into K-Mart that day I had never read any reviews or seen any swatches for this product so I was a little leery about the formulation and pigmentation at first, but the packaging really helped me get over it. I just love it!
