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.
First is my favorite of the set, Neo whimsical from Essie.
This is the most beautiful muted grey purple pink color I’ve ever seen.
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!
Next I got this cute fall green color in Don’t Mess With OPI.
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.
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.
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 these two but I returned the Loreal one on the right because it looks nothing like in the bottle.
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.
Lastly for nails I picked up these three Nabi ones from a boutique. They’re only $1 each!
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.
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.
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.
I also ordered this Stila Lip Enamel in Giggle from ebay.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
And some hair clippies.
I’m always losing these little guys.
I also picked up some really random stuff I thought I would share.
^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.
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.
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.
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.
I picked up this suit case from Marshalls.
I bought some tweezers from f21 to apply lashes.
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.
I got a little makeup baggie from H&M in lime green zebra.
It’s the prefect size for my purse.
Picked up a beach towel.
It’s huge so I love it.
My little sister brought me this little blue headband from Japan.
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.
And that’s it for my beauty and random stuff haul for July!
