Huge Makeup Shopping Haul TJMaxx & Marshalls, Amazing finds!

Hello, hello lovies. I hope today brings you joy, and your all having a fantastic start to your weekend! I have a fun, and exciting blog post for you today, well at least I think it is! I am such a makeup, and beauty junkie that I search for good deals, at stores like TJMaxx, Homegoods, Marshalls, and Nordstrom Rack pretty regularly, not only because it’s fun, but because I love a good hunt!! Let me tell you, now is the best time to shop, around the holiday season is when they get in tons of new stuff, especially in the beauty department! They really try, and boost sales for the holidays, to get the consumers in the door, because once you find that amazing deal, especially on makeup, your hooked! I remember last year I spent WAY to much at these stores during November, and December, I wait all year for the good stuff! Anyways, this year is looking to be the same, spending way to much again. I am splitting up the haul into 2 separate hauls, and posts, because it’s just easier to split it up🙂 I  just can’t help myself, I can’t pass up good deals, who’s with me on that? The beauty, and skincare department is literally packed with goodies!! I love going, and looking to see what new that got in, and for the most part it’s a lot of stuff they don’t normally carry. It’s like they hoard all the good stuff until now, lol! I am loving it though! I have found so many good high end makeup products, and the prices are always so low, sometimes unbelieveable. Some of the brands I have found lately include, Kat Von D, Lancome, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Bare Minerals, Buxom, Tokyo Milk, Bobbi Brown, Make Up For Ever, Tocca, Lollia, Mac, Too Faced, Ciate, Sephora, Formula X, Nars, Stila, and the list goes on, see I told ya, I have been finding so much lately!! So many high end, prestige brands! I am finding them at such low prices, and at incredible values. I will share below what all I have gotten recently in the last few weeks, and this isn’t even everything, this is just what I set aside to haul, I have gone a little crazy lately lol! I hope you all are able to find some good deals as well, I just wanted to share with you, so you can have your eyes open too, happy shopping, please leave a comment down below telling me which one of my finds you think is the best, and if you have been able to find as well! Happy hunting!!🙂 If you would like pricing information on anything, please ask🙂 Haul 2 is coming next Friday, be sure to come back and check it out!! I have been finding amazing deals lately!

Oh, and my little Pumpkin always wants her picture taken too🙂

Nars Sarah Moon Eyeshadow Duo “Indes Galantes” Review

screen-shot-2016-11-27-at-6-06-08-pm

Hi there, how are you all doing? I hope all is well, and all of you are having a great week so far! I am doing well, busy as usual, but really trying to reach my goal this week again, so I am keeping up with blogging, work, and life🙂 I hope you have been enjoying the blogs thus far this week, I finally feel like I am catching up, and getting the hang of it again! It’s still so fun, and I do really enjoy it as well! Today on the blog I am reviewing Nars Cosmetics, which is hands down my all time favorite makeup/beauty brand! They came out recently with a new line featuring Sarah Moon. Beautiful packaging, and colors, it’s actually a pretty big line, and I am loving the packaging especially on the entire collection, this one is just the regular packaging with special labeling, nothing special really, but some of the other pieces in the collection, are absolutely stunning with Sarah Moon’s beautiful artwork, and photography. This is one of the most beautiful limited edition packaging from nars cosmetics I have seen! I, like most beauty, and makeup lovers am a sucker for packaging, and design that’s for sure, I can’t help it, give me pretty, and colorful packaging, and I’m sold lol! Who is with me on that? 

Nars cosmetics has always been one of my favorite brands in the industry. It’s high end, and luxurious, the quality of the products is always superb, and worth every penny in my opinion. Although I only purchased one thing from the collection, believe me, I want to purchase more, but am refraining lol, I think this one was a good one to buy. I love eyeshadows, and especially these duos are always my favorite. Two colors in one travel friendly little palette. I feel in love with these colors in the palette, and think they are smooth, buttery, and highly pigmented, just what you would expect from nars! They also last all day on the eyelid, and have over 12 hours of wear time, which is incredible. They simply are beautiful, and anyone would enjoy these as well. I definitely suggest giving something from the new Sarah Moon collection by nars cosmetics a try!

Hello, hello again lovies! How are you all doing on this lovely day? I hope all is well with you all. I am having a blog a thon today, and getting most of my blogs done for the week, so that I can just keep going meeting my goals, yeah! I am also all cozy in pajamas, and slippers watching a scary movie, and taking blog photos, trying to stay warm! 

I went on a bit of a shopping spree lately, and was able to pick up a bunch of items from the new holiday collection from lorac, yeah for shopping, and finding what I was wanting to get! The first thing I picked up from the collection, wasn’t officially part of the holiday collection, but I think it may have, it was the lorac mega pro eyeshadow palette, I had to have it added to my collection of the pro palettes, the palettes are always the best quality, and that one is absolutely beautiful , even if the packaging gets super dirty. Lorac released more to the collection, and officially called it the Rose & Rivalry collection. The rose gold packaging truly called to me, anything rose gold does, I can’t help it, lol! I knew that some of the collection was going to be exclusive to Ulta, and some exclusive to Khol’s. I stopped in my local khol’s and what’s even better is that I had a gift card, yipee, anyways, I was able to get the happy hour alter ego lip gloss set, which I will also be reviewing soon, and the grand gala light source highlighter and color source blush duo. I thought for $28 for two full size products by lorac was a total bargain! These two colors, and shades are exclusive to this collection, and limited edition. I had seen swatches online, and they looked beautiful, perfect for me colors, for my light to medium skin. I do want to mention that there are two highlight/ blush duos that come in this collection. I think they are both pretty, but I definitely like the one that I purchased the best, and this is the one that is the limited edition shades. Anyways so I ended up getting the one in spotlight, and aura. These are stunning, and very easy to apply, they are very buttery, and soft, yet highly pigmented, so you only need a little on your brush, a little goes a long way. The pan size is also full size, and big, like I said, it’s a great value for the money. These are a bit hard to find in stock at the store, so I suggest purchasing online at kohl’s. I am so glad that I got pieces to this collection, and definitely recommend! Let me know in the comments if you plan on getting anything from this collection, or if you have, let me know your opinion!

Hello there lovies!! Who is busy decorating for the holidays? I got to get into the holiday spirit, and decorate, gotta make time for it, because I really enjoy it every year! I hope your all having a wonderful day! Thanks for your continued support, it’s truly appreciated! 

Today on the blog, I am sharing with you some colourpop holiday collection makeup items! They just came out with their new holiday collection, I saw pictures, and knew that I had to have some of the collection, because the colors were SO beautiful! Of coarse I jumped on it so fast that I didn’t really think about that there would be a black Friday sale coming up in a few days, lol, oh well, no 20 % off for me, or a free lip gloss, such a bummer, how many of you guys also hate when that happens? UGGGG! Okay, I had to take a little break, because I just placed another order because I wanted get the puppy love, and cat nap, they are for a good cause, and are on sale, so I also bought some pieces from the hello kitty collection, I can’t resist sales I tell ya, so I will be reviewing those as well, fun, fun! I am such a makeup junkie I tell ya, and always enjoy colourpop! If you haven’t ever tried anything from the brand, I highly recommend giving them a try, especially when they are having a sale! 

Okay, let’s get on to the haul, and swatches! After all, that’s what you came for right? I have really been loving colourpop lately, and have placed a few orders in the past couple months, and everything is always amazing, I really love when they release new collections, it’s the packaging lol! The eyeshadows, and matte lip glosses are always my favorite, because they are so affordable, and the colors are stunning, and last! I honestly think that the pigmentation in the eyeshadows are something like I have never seen before, and absolutely stunning, and beautiful! The pillowy texture is so interesting, and unique, you don’t have to use much to get an amazing eyeshadow look. The lip glosses also are smooth, and pigmented, and don’t cake up like a lot of glosses do, also they are non sticky!  Let’s check out what all I got from the new holiday collection from colourpop!

Thanks for all your continued support as well, I am so very thankful for growth, and my followers, and readers, so thank you from the bottom of my heart! 

I am here to share with you today my sephora play subscription box for November! This box was one of my favorite ones so far that I have received. I am so glad that they keep being good products each month to try, I knew this subscription box was going to amazing, because what products that sephora carries aren’t? Right? I am so glad that I subscribed! I love, and really appreciate the huge variety of brands, and items that come in the box every month. My favorite product this month that I received is the product by estee edit. I have been really wanting to try more from this brand, because I keep hearing positive, and amazing things about the new line at sephora. This makeup remover definitely doesn’t disappoint, it works so well at removing my eye makeup, it’s pretty remarkable! My mascara, and eyeshadow was completely gone, I see a full size in my near future of this! I also was really excited to receive the shadow stick by Laura Mercier. I love this brand, it’s one of my favorites, has been for a long time. This shadow stick is in a beautiful shade, and it glides on so smooth, and gives the perfect amount of shimmer, and lasts all day! I am loving everything in this box this month. If your not a subscriber, and are a fellow beauty lover, I highly suggest subscribing, it’s been superb so far, and enjoy using all the products, especially the makeup!

Hello there lovies, happy day after Thanksgiving, otherwise known as black Friday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a special time with their loved ones, I sure did, and cherish the memories, and time my family, and I spend together so much that’s for sure! I am so incredibly thankful for my family, I don’t say it enough, but I am, and love them all very much, I am so lucky to have them!

Today I am sharing with you some amazing drugstore, affordable highlighters! These beauties are from Wet n Wild, and I am sure you have seen them, and heard of them before, because they are highly buzzed in the beauty world, and they are also hard to get your hands on as well, but SO worth it!! These highlighters are so reasonably priced, it’s amazing, the pan size is surprisingly large as well, which for the price of $3.99 and $2.99 is simply incredible! I knew I had to have them when I saw swatches, so I placed an order online for a lot of the stardust & sequins collection (more coming soon in a seperate blog) so that I wouldn’t have to search for them in store, especially the impossible to find coveted gold bar! These are all must haves, and was so excited to receive them all. I couldn’t wait to swatch them, and really start playing with them! I will admit these are my first wet n wild products, ya I know say what? Yes, as I have mentioned before, I am just now getting into more drugstore, more affordable products, as typically I am a high end beauty makeup kind of girl, but using these have really made me excited to try more drugstore products, and makeup that’s for sure! These highlighters are so smooth, and buttery, and truly compare to the high end highlighters, they remind me a lot of becca, which for this price, is great right? They so gorgeous, and I highly recommend them! The gold bar is definitely something you have to search for in stores, I have seen it at Rite Aid, and Walgreens, may the odds forever be in your favor in finding it, but I think it is sold out right now on the wet n wild website, but the other two highlighters are still available, as of right now. I highly recommend these, please let me know if you are able to find the gold bar, I’d love to hear! They are definitely popular, and for good reason!
