My Ulta Package arrives!!!

Best deal was the Smashbox “try it kit”. Sometimes they don’t exactly specify how the products are going to be. As much as I love the Benefit brand, I didn’t like the sample benefit “coral my world” package. I had to return it because the coralista blush was on a plastic container (I thought the container was built cheaply). But with the Smashbox “try it kit” I was thrilled to see the quality of the packaging (as you know packaging is important to me and I am sure it is for a lot of you out there). The sizes of the products are perfect and they are awesomely priced, $19.00.

I will post the full review soon. This is just to let you know that Ulta is still selling this on their website, if you are interested :). They have free shipping available for purchases of $25 or more if you type this code: SHIP4FREE


Oh, How I loVE CloUdS

This was on the way to lake Tahoe before it got dark. Isn’t that cloud gorgeous? It literally looked like strokes of paint.

My first Nasty gal Purchase!!!

Hi there, I normally don’t post online shopping hauls but I am so excited for this one! I was super excited when I saw this on, because it’s different. Even my husband liked it more than lita. So I bought this pang platform boot by JC, necklace and a clutch. So far, I have only worn around the house. It is very comfortable but not as much as litas. I still love them because look at them heels…..they are cute. But, hey they are still comfortable. :)  They were on sale for $75.50, which was $188.00 before.

Diy your own unique glitter nail color

Hi there, I just thought about this glitter nail diy idea and I wanted to do it right away because this was something I could do it right away. I have this black and brown glitter from my other projects. I used those glitters and my Wet n Wild megalast nail color. What I love about this Megalast nail color is that it has flat brush and it’s very easy and fast to put it on. Of course, they have beautiful colors to choose from. Anyways, here is how I made my own glitter nail polish. It is great because you can use any color for your base coat and you can choose your glitter color.
1. Mix black and brown/gold glitter in a small bowl. OR IF you want only one glitter color, dip your finger after step 2.

EF | STUDIO Full Coverage Foundation

Hi there,
I decided to try this foundation since I have not been using any foundations for more than a year now.
why? Because, I have a weird combination skin type. It is oily and sensitive at the same time. So, I am hooked on Missha BB cream ever since I found out about it, because it’s very easy to use and my all time favorite, Bare Minerals powder. Oh! and I use MAC pressed powder occasionally. Anyhow, it is not full coverage so I wanted something that covers well especially to use it during special occasions or when i feel like it. :)So far, I love this EF | STUDIO Full
Coverage Foundation. I have used it few times and has not given me any break out. I think its perfect for winter because it gives you kind of dewy finish. It would be great if you have a dry skin. The container is tiny and only has 0.25 oz but it goes a long way. :)

Britto Makeup bag by Heys!!

I had to get this Britto makeup bag by Heys when I saw it on Ideeli. I am not a big money spender on things but This Luggage line is beautiful! I got this makeup bag for a pretty awesome deal ($60 with shipping). Usually I wouldn’t even spend that much for a makeup bag but I had to get it because of the design and the case is very well made, very easy to use, has a strap on the back to hook it to your luggage. Its definitely worth it. The website doesn’t have it anymore but amazon sells it for $182.26 for the same kind. And they have a satin one for $36.49.
Detail of the bag:
Large enough to hold brushes and toiletries yet small enough to fit into an overhead bin. Its like a mini suit case.
Features a high-gloss finish on the artistic design
Top rubberized carrying handle and optional crossbody strap
Zip around closure
Customized fully lined interior with multiple pockets to keep your products organized when traveling
Material: polycarbonate composite
warranty:7-year worldwise

The Heys sale is back for 2 more days! In case you were looking to buy. If you are not sure to buy it right away, you can click on the heart to save it under your favorites :)

Smashbox Jet set eyeliner: This is one of my favorites in this pack. I used my brush from Maybelline gel eyeliner’s brush. I have been using Maybelline eye studio gel eyeliner for couple of years and it used to pay $11.00 a piece. To have this smashbox eyeliner in a pack which i paid $28($82.00 value) was a great deal. To buy single, it costs $22.00 and has in 5 more colors.will i buy it again?Yes, it is jet black, waterproof and does not smudge. I like cream eye liner.
