Haul, Broken & All – Beauty & Extras

I did do a bit of beauty damage as well but again, a lot of this was with coupons or on sale or both. I stopped by Ulta and picked up some polishes on sale.
Photobucket

First is my favorite of the set, Neo whimsical from Essie.
Photobucket
This is the most beautiful muted grey purple pink color I’ve ever seen.

Next is Revlon’s Sheer Seafoam.
Photobucket
I should’ve realized from the name that it would be completely sheer but it’s so beautiful in the bottle that I didn’t even think about buying it until I got home and swatched it. It’s disappointing because if it wasn’t sheer it would be such a cute summer color!

Next I got this cute fall green color in Don’t Mess With OPI.
Photobucket
It’s quite a nice fall green color and the formula is pretty good. I haven’t worn it besides swatching yet.

Then I picked up this red from Essie in Red Nouveau.
Photobucket
It’s like a tomato red. I don’t have too many reds so I decided to add this to my collection.

I got this Revlon one in Blue Lagoon.
Photobucket
I’ve been hunting for light blues all summer and have for the most part been disappointed with the formulas. This one had a pretty chunky formula as well so I don’t know what’s up with these light blues but I’m still hunting.

Lastly from that set, I picked up this pop beauty one in mint magic.
Photobucket
This one is crazy bright! I have plenty of mint polishes but this one is definitely different because it’s so bright as opposed to being a muted or light mint color. The formula though is really bad. It’s gunky and sticky but I’m willing to deal with it because I love the color so much!

I also picked up these two but I returned the Loreal one on the right because it looks nothing like in the bottle.
Photobucket
I kept the Essie one in fiji because it’s such a cute light almost white pink color.

And then I found Essie A crewed interest on sale.
Photobucket

Lastly for nails I picked up these three Nabi ones from a boutique. They’re only $1 each!
Photobucket
The bright neon green and pink are so cute! I haven’t tried the blue yet but I will soon!

I also picked up a few lipsticks. First is this Tarina Tarantino one in Candy Jar.
Photobucket
It’s like this bright candy pink that’s almost reminiscent of an 80’s lipstick shade because it’s got some purple undertones.

I picked up another Nars Schiap because I lost my original one and I just couldn’t not have it so I picked up a replacement.
Photobucket

I got Mac’s Snob.
Photobucket
I’m so-so on this because it’s pretty unwearable on it’s own unless I’m going out at night and doing a crazy dark smokey eye. During the day it needs to be mixed with something else on top or under it.

I also ordered this Stila Lip Enamel in Giggle from ebay.
Photobucket
It’s crazy bright pink and I love it!

And then my sister came home from Japan and brought back this super cute baby pink lipstick for me!
Photobucket
It looks washed out here but in person it’s a true baby pink with coral undertones.

Moving along, I jumped on the bandwagon and picked up the new Revlon Whipped foundation but only because I got an awesome $2 coupon.
Photobucket
I got it in Natural tan and it’s pretty much a perfect match because I got so dark from pontooning. I actually like this much better than the normal revlon colorstay foundations because this looks the same and has the same staying power but this feels so much lighter and better on your skin and it doesn’t have that same super fragrant smell.

I picked up a sonial kashuk brush, again with some coupons.
Photobucket
This one is so unique. I have nothing like it. It’s supposed to be for contouring but I’m using it for highlighting and it works just fine.

I also picked up a bunch of random things from Target because I had some really good coupons last month that were going to expire.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
I’ve been wanting this cosmetic bag since forever because I love the red and purple stripes.

I also got these little organizer things from the dollar section at target to organize my chunky rings.
Photobucket

And some hair clippies.
Photobucket
I’m always losing these little guys.

I also picked up some really random stuff I thought I would share.

Photobucket
Photobucket
^these are my HG puffs because they’re sealed completely at the sides so no matter how soaked it gets, it doesn’t expand and come apart. It’s expensive though, $5 for 100.

I’m trying a different contact solution.
Photobucket
I usually use Target’s Generic one but last year when I bought new contacts my store gave me a sample of this Bio True one and I loved it so much because I remember it being so cool and crisp on my eyes but this bottle seems normal and almost the same as my Target one so I’m going back to Generic.

I’ve been buying a lot of studs online to diy shorts.
Photobucket
I’ve found that 10mms are too small and 12 is ok but I’m going to look for a size up.

I bought a car organizer that turns out to be too big for my trunk but’s ok because I plan to upgrade to SUV soon.
Photobucket

Since I’ve been doing my nails so much I got some polish remover and an eos balm.
Photobucket
I now remember why I stopped using EOS balms, they’re just inferior to my other balms. They only good thing about them is they’re cute.

I picked up this suit case from Marshalls.
Photobucket

I bought some tweezers from f21 to apply lashes.
Photobucket
I don’t like this, it feels really flimsy and it’s open too wide so holding them still while putting on lashes is really hard to do.

Picked up some goodies earlier from the Bath and body works sale.
Photobucket

I got a little makeup baggie from H&M in lime green zebra.
Photobucket
It’s the prefect size for my purse.

Picked up a beach towel.
Photobucket
It’s huge so I love it.

My little sister brought me this little blue headband from Japan.
Photobucket

And finally I picked up this doggie tray from Marshalls so I have a set at my house for my dog when she comes over.
Photobucket

And that’s it for my beauty and random stuff haul for July!

Recent Purchases – 6/26/12 baby Hauls

I’ve been collecting pictures of stuff I’ve hauled over the course of the past few weeks. I actually got a lot of this with coupons and sales so I’m super excited about that! First of all, as you know I’ve recently joined the Iphone train so I’ve made some ebay orders for covers. I think I bought 5 cases in total since I got my phone. They’ve been arriving every couple of days so I’ve snapped shots a few.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I gave this mint one to my sister but I love the rubberized feeling of it so I will probably order another one.
Photobucket
This is the one I’m currently using.
Photobucket
That little bow over the earphone jack is called a plug and it’s to protect dust from getting inside the headphone jack.

I’ve also been trying to diy some shorts so I’ve ordered a lot of studs in different sizes.
Photobucket
These are 8mm and they’re the only ones I’ve received so far. I got them off etsy but I’ve since learned that ebay is way cheaper.

I also picked up a few random things from Target.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I don’t know how I went for so long without a staple remover. My nails thank me.

I also got this cute little notebook to replace my old moleskin. I looked for ages for one without lines but I’ve given up and decided to go with this one.
Photobucket
It’s actually the perfect size, if only it didn’t have lines and the pages were thicker.

Sonia Kashuk’s summer stuff was on sale so I bought these two things with some coupons so they were super inexpensive.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I’ve been eyeing these brushes for a long time but didn’t pick them up because I have another old Sonia Kashuk brush set that have really hard bristles. Luckily these are a lot softer and better. I’m really glad I got this set because they’re all different brushes from what I already have.

I also used a coupon to get this beautiful brush.
Photobucket
It’s so different from my other brushes. It has a mix of plastic and boar bristles and it seems to smooth out hair as you brush it.

I also picked up some random stuff at the mall. First is a sweater that says drama queen.
Photobucket

I got some hair ties.
Photobucket

A cute bracelet in a peachy pastel color.
Photobucket

And then I dropped by sephora to return something and got a sample and a set using 500 points.
Photobucket
I don’t like this moisturizer so far. It’s very fragrant.

Photobucket
I’ve tried this serum and moisturizer once but it’s an odd thick gel that’s a dark red color. It feels so odd to rub on my face. I don’t know how I feel about it.

I also picked up some lovely polishes again with an awesome target coupon that printed for me.
Photobucket

First, Mojito Madness:
Photobucket
It’s lighter in the bottle than on the nails. On the nails it’s not as bright but still very cute.

Next, Bikini so Teeny:
Photobucket
It’s like a periwinkle blue. It’s very cute and definitely has a purple undertone.

Next, I got one of the new maybelline ones in Fierce N Tangy:
Photobucket
I’ve been looking for an opaque yellow for so long and this one is just perfectly bright and opaque.

Next I have To Buy or Not to Buy
Photobucket
Sorry for the unclean swatch, I did these right after getting home. This color is one of my favorites! It’s a super light lilac purple.

Next I got Charming by Revlon.
Photobucket
I was trying to decide between this one and lilacism but I already got two essie ones at the time so I went with this one.

And lastly I got Play Date.
Photobucket
It’s a true purple but not too dark and not too light.

And lastly, I picked up this cute oversized clutch bag from the thrift store!
Photobucket
It’s perfect for summer!

That’s it for my haul this time around.


Recent Purchases – If only I can follow a ban

I picked up a few things this week, mainly makeup and accessories. I’ll start with the non makeup stuff and then move into beauty items.

First I picked up this pair of shoes from F21.
Photobucket
It’s a lot more comfortable than it looks. Most of the shoe is on a platform and the arch is actually pretty low so I can see myself walking around on a night out with these.

I dropped by this boutique that uses the “always 50% off” gimmick not expecting to find anything and of course I walked out with my favorite buys of the week!
Photobucket
Photobucket
I have been looking for sideways cross jewelry for so long! I’ve only been able to find it online on etsy and random european websites but finally I found some. My least favorite piece is the necklace because the cross is shaped a little oddly and it’s bigger than I like. I really love the dainty silver bracelet and how nicely it sits on my wrist. I can’t believe I found these in a local store!

Next I picked up a pair of sort of cat eye shapped sunglasses.
Photobucket
I’ve now realized that aviator shaped frames fit my face best because of my high fat cheek bones. Big frames won’t sit on my face and instead make me look extra puffy.

From Forever21 I also picked up two bracelets and a necklace.
Photobucket
I saw this pink chord bracelet online and almost ordered it but I didn’t and I was happy to find it in store. It’s less cute in person and I’m not huge on the actual material of the pink chord. It seems kind of weak.
Photobucket
I picked up this gold pyramid/chain one because I think it’s so interesting. I love that it’s not all pyramid because it creates a different look and can stand alone better than a pyramid bracelet.
Photobucket
And I just picked up this necklace because I loved how it looked with my outfit that day 🙂
Photobucket

Now moving on to beauty related items.

I got two drug store pieces. First my boyfriend got me one of the new Revlon balm stains in Cherish.
Photobucket
It’s a purply pink color and it feels like a balm. I don’t think it actually stains your lips though but it’s a nice color. For some reason it seems shimmery when I wear it.

I also picked up this new polish by Revlon in Smoldering.
Photobucket
It’s silver with pink undertones. I wished it showed more pink but it’s still a nice color.

I picked up a piece from the Mac Beth Ditto collection and it’s of course the fushia lipstick in Dear Diary.
Photobucket
I don’t love these pro long wear lip cremes as much as the regular lipsticks because these are really creamy. They remind me of the YSL Rouge Volupte where the product is not quite hard. It slides really easily and if you’re not careful you can swipe a chunk of lipstick off. The color though is amazing! It’s brighter than girl about town and more purple than NARS Schiap.

I also picked up a blush in Coy girl.
Photobucket
It reminds me of NARS Mata Hari. It’s a blue tone purple and shows up really nicely on the cheeks.

I picked my my first ever Dazzleglass in Money Honey.
Photobucket
It’s pink, red, and gold glitters. I love it over pink lipsticks!

And then I went to the outlet with my boyfriend and picked up a few more items. I got a lipglass in astro cool.
Photobucket
It looks silver but it’s actually lavender tone with purple glitters. I just thought it was unique and interesting.

I picked up another lipglass in curvaceous.
Photobucket
It’s a muavey grey pink.

I also got a sheen supreme in fashion city.
Photobucket
This is a light orange coral color. It’s very nice on the lips and the color is really pretty for summer.

And then I picked up some other stuff. I got a tarte lipsurgence in charmed.
Photobucket
It’s a bright bubblegum pink. It’s my first lipsurgence and I was actually inspired to try it because of my new revlon balm stain. It feels really good but I don’t like lip products that are more sheer and requires more coats. I really prefer lipstick products that are not too slippery.

I also got another MUFE in 18.
Photobucket
I really like the formula on these. They’re not chunky and ultra creamy like the YSLs but they’re not as thick as MAC lipsticks. They’re a perfect formula. They are pigmented and the perfect creamy consistency.

And then I picked up a Jack black lip balm because I wanted something with spf to see if it will help my crazy dry lips.
Photobucket
I got it in grapefruit and it smells so good!

Lastly, I picked up another balm with a gift card and a little bottle of moroccan oil to try on my ends.
Photobucket

That’s it for my haul this time around.
