Next is Revlon’s Sheer Seafoam.
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!
I got this Revlon one in Blue Lagoon.
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.
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 a few lipsticks. First is this Tarina Tarantino one in Candy Jar.
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 got Mac’s Snob.
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.
Moving along, I jumped on the bandwagon and picked up the new Revlon Whipped foundation but only because I got an awesome $2 coupon.
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 also picked up a bunch of random things from Target because I had some really good coupons last month that were going to expire.
I’ve been wanting this cosmetic bag since forever because I love the red and purple stripes.
I also picked up some really random stuff I thought I would share.
I’m trying a different contact solution.
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.
Since I’ve been doing my nails so much I got some polish remover and an eos balm.
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.
And that’s it for my beauty and random stuff haul for July!
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.
I gave this mint one to my sister but I love the rubberized feeling of it so I will probably order another one.
This is the one I’m currently using.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
That’s it for my haul this time around.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
And I just picked up this necklace because I loved how it looked with my outfit that day 🙂
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.
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 picked up a piece from the Mac Beth Ditto collection and it’s of course the fushia lipstick in Dear Diary.
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.
And then I went to the outlet with my boyfriend and picked up a few more items. I got a lipglass in astro cool.
It looks silver but it’s actually lavender tone with purple glitters. I just thought it was unique and interesting.
And then I picked up some other stuff. I got a tarte lipsurgence in charmed.
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.
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.
That’s it for my haul this time around.
