EOS Shimmer Lip Balm New, and loving it!

img_6588

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday, and happy hump day, I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I keep telling myself to stay up to date, and yes I keep buying new makeup, and beauty products, so now I have a ton of catching up to do. The holiday collections are all releasing, so it’s pretty fun, and exciting!! I LOVE holiday makeup sets, I can’t resist, as I’m sure many of you can’t as well, oh the temptation!! 

EOS is a great drugstore lip balm brand, you may know of them, they are pretty darn popular. I have about 20 of them so far, and really didn’t need more, but how can I resist the new shimmer ones? I can’t, and I wanted to review them for you all as well. They are packed with a beautiful shimmer, that adds the perfect sparkle to your lips, okay my lips, and I can’t get enough of them, I really have been loving them so far! I have always been a lip product kind of gal, something about all the different types of lip products, that give so many different looks that I can’t resist!! Lips are in constant need of attention, so they are always needing something on them! my favorite lip products, or type has always been lipgloss, I love the gloss look, funny fact when matte lips were all the rage, okay they still are, lol, I was like what??? NO!!! lol, funny I know, I am getting more used to them, and do wear the look on occasional, although, still not my favorite. I also have always loved shimmer, ever since I was a little girl, my lips had to be shimmery, or sparkly, thanks bonne bell lipsmack, the addiction started young!! Anyways, with living in the pacific northwest the weather can change so drastically from day to day, so my lip products change as well, and they change often, which I don’t mind 🙂

My Review: 

I love EOS, as a brand, and their lip balms. I love how the ingredients are quality, and good for your lips, and the environment as well. They smell amazing, and truly are moisturizing for your lips. The shimmer I was really excited about because I already love the regular eos, and I have a ton of them, all different scents/ flavors. The clear balm gives the perfect amount of moisture, and they glide on effortlessly, the shape of the balm is a great idea, no wonder why so many other brands try and copy the design! I love these new shimmer balms, they add a slight sparkle, and the pink one adds a tiny amount of pink without being overbearing, which is nice. The scents are nice as well, sweet, but not floral. I really like the new packaging on these as well, it makes them feel more fancy. The price on these are around $2 more each, but I feel it’s very worth the price increase for what your getting!  I recommend these for sure, they work great, and will be great to have for the coming winter months, and the holidays! Would make a great stocking stuffer!

Nars *Steven Klein* Collection Review

narsskcollection

Hello there loves!! I do realize that I am a bit late on the game on this, I honestly planned to do this post like a month ago, I put it all in a pile, and no joke forgot about it!! WHAT? Ya, that happened, #makeuphoarderproblems LOL. So, I was organizing, and was SO happy when I found it all yeah, now I can finally start using all of these BEAUTIFUL products from cars, YES girls, YES! This collection was one of the most beautiful, and useable collections that I have seen from nars, when I saw the sneak peaks, and new I wanted it all, okay, yes I was dreaming…… but I knew there were definitely some that were must haves for me! I went ahead and bought the ones that I really wanted, and am SO glad that I did, they are all absolutely amazing, the colors are perfect. My favorite thing about the collection is the super cool packaging, the design is so modern, fun, and full of character, which I love! Were you able to pick up anything from the collection? I know a lot is still available, try finding these on sephora, nordstrom, and the nars website directly, some of these are nordstrom exclusives as well. I highly recommend the eyeshadow single in “stud” it is stunning, and is so unique, the shadow blends magically, and is super pigmented, and buttery, you will love anything from the collection though as I do! Nars quality is simply amazing, it will always be one of my all time favorite brands! I am going to review the items that I purchased from the collection fyi, it was a large collection!

François Nars and Steven Klein come together with design legend Fabien Baron to create an exquisite fantasy played to extremes.
“Steven is an iconic fashion photographer. His work defies the rules of photography—it’s arresting and provocative. It pushes boundaries and elicits a reaction. I like that. He perfectly embodies the spirit of NARS.” —François Nars, Founder & Creative Director

“I’ve always had the highest regard for François’ work. He is the pioneer of moving from one of the greatest makeup artists to creating great makeup. It is super exciting for me to collaborate using my photographs and joining them with his cosmetic genius.” —Steven Klein, Photographer

HUGE goodwill/ thrift store shopping beauty haul target & vintage items!

Well, hello there lovies, I hope your week is going great. So, your hear because I am guessing you want to check out what I got at goodwill huh? Your at the right place, I got some amazing deals, I couldn’t believe how great, I was shocked, and so happy when I found these deals. Goodwill, and thrift store shopping I have always really enjoyed doing, there is something about the hunt, the thrill, of what you may find! I like to call it an easter egg hunt, sometimes, you just happen to get it right, and find really cool stuff, and sometimes you get nothing. I am lucky to live where I live because I have about 10 different goodwill stores, some being superstores, all within my city, awesome, I know how lucky I am. Apparently, my state (city) has the best, and most profitable goodwill’s in the country, I know this because people come to our main store to train, and I have read places, many times how profitable our goodwill’s are. I think it’s because I live in a beautiful, nature loving, eco-friendly state. I constantly am donating, and purchasing from all the goodwill’s by me, so it’s a win, win for everyone. I shop so much (okay, let’s not get crazy) but I stop in so often, that I know the employees ha, ha, hey they help me out, and give me little insights on when the good stuff comes in, they call it the 509, aka that means target stuff. So yes, most of what I buy are those 509 items, that target has sold to goodwill, I learned that goodwill get’s palettes full of random stuff like returns, clearance items, discontinued items, etc. and goodwill will then buy those palettes (not knowing what’s in them) for a very low price, so they can make a profit by selling to the customers (like myself) it’s pretty secretive still, which is weird, they aren’t supposed to say it’s from target, or that pink tags are target, or when they come in (I still don’t know, I only know when one stores 509’s comes in) I know it’s secretive I tell ya! But it’s all the fun in stopping in, and looking for stuff, most of the time I go straight back to where the cosmetics, and beauty section is, because that’s where all the good stuff always is, and duh I am a beauty blogger, and makeup junkie so of coarse I go straight to that section 🙂 

I got some amazing stuff over the past 2 months, and wanted to share with all of you, I know this is a different type of post, but a lot of the items are beauty related, so I thought you all would want to check it out too, maybe you also share a love of good deals, and bargain shopping, or finding really cool vintage items like myself. Everything is deeply discounted, and a lot of stuff in my home I have gotten a deal on at goodwill, brand new items, I love me some goodwill shopping, and am definitely not afraid to admit it! I used to post my great finds a lot on my personal Facebook, and people would be shocked, and amazed that I shop there, and find such amazing deals, I tell them, you should shop there too, why not!? 

The coolest things I have ever gotten from goodwill, OMG to many to list, but I will try!

Patio chair (smith & hawken brand, brand new in the box)

Rug (large area rug that I have had for 10 years) 

Pictures (SO many awesome pictures that are hanging on my walls)

Le creuset items

Pampered chef items

Jewelry box (from this haul)

Various makeup 

Goodwill Haul 

FullSizeRender 20 FullSizeRender 21 FullSizeRender 22 FullSizeRender 23

Okay, so as you can see from the pictures, I got some great stuff, can you believe the It cosmetics blenders were 99 cents each, of coarse I bought all 4! I also couldn’t believe that I got that set of buxom lip glosses for $4.99, I’m telling ya, I just get lucky! I have a hard time paying retail for anything now days, it’s funny, because I know I can find it at goodwill, I may wait a long time, one time I found something after a year of looking……… but it’s always worth the wait to save money, who doesn’t want to do that! 🙂 I hope you enjoy this post, and please watch the video for more details on each item in the haul! Happy bargain hunting to you all!

Popsugar Must Have July 2015 Unboxing & Review

image12

Yeah, it’s time for my favorite subscription box review! I am always so surprised with the variety, and selection of products every month. I absolutely love popsugar must have! If your unfamiliar with it, it is a monthly subscription box that is $39.95 a month, and the value of the box every month, is always WAY more than that! This box wasn’t the best for me, although I liked everything, there wasn’t the wow factor this month. I really didn’t like the pop toothbrush, I think it is very low quality, and I already use a sonicare toothbrush that is rechargeable so I definitely won’t use this, but that’s okay I can swap, or give it to someone. My favorite product out of this box though is the supergroup defense refresh setting mist, funny because I was totally going to purchase this a few weeks ago, but didn’t, this mist is AMAZING, highly recommend it, and love that it is spf 50, perfect for protecting my skin from the harmful sun rays! What a great product! This box had a high value that’s for sure, and definitely was worth it as always. I hope to get a big makeup product next month, come on popsugar it’s time 🙂 Please check out my previous boxes by searching in the sidebar to see what other boxes have been like!

Nordstrom Rack Shopping Makeup Clearance Haul (huge discount)

Hi lovies! I hope all is well with you all, and your having a good week so far! I just wanted to share with you what I was able to find at my local nordstrom rack this week. Every once in a while I will stop in Nordstrom rack, Marshall’s, and TJ Maxx, I am lucky to have a bunch of these discount stores in my area, yeah for discount shopping, and getting great deals! Every time I go in to any of these stores, I look at the beauty clearance section, it’s a must, you never know what you can find. Just the other day I looked at marshall’s clearance and found a pack of glamglow for eyes for $10!!!! Ya, it’s definitely worth a look to find amazing deals, that’s for sure.

I made my way back to the clearance section at nordstrom rack, and low and behold I find these three makeup products from the balm. I seriously couldn’t believe my eyes, I was super excited, because I have been wanting these highlighters for like a year, and just never got them! I thought they would be broken, or something wrong with them, I opened the boxes and they were perfect! I then flipped over the boxes to look at the price, and well, almost screamed out load with excitement, pretty sure you would too, lol! Oh the joys of finding great makeup deals, especially on something you have been wanting for a long time to add to your collection! WOW, I couldn’t believe they were this cheap. Clearly they were a return from hautelook, when you order from their, it is a nordstrom company, and you can return in store, this must have been one of the rare cases they just put the items on the floor to sell.

I am SO happy, and excited that I was able to find them. It literally made my day! I have already used them, and they are absolutely beautiful, and stunning highlighters, perfect for my skin tone. The put a lid on it primer works great as well, keeping my eyeshadow on all day without creasing.The balm products are really the bomb, that’s for sure! I highly recommend them, and hey always check out the clearance sections in store, especially discount stores, you seriously NEVER know, I feel like I definitely scored! Pretty awesome right? Have you used any the balm products? I know they are great products, but only have a couple products from this brand.

Mary- Lou Manizer>>>> $24 paid $5.97

Cindy- Lou Manizer>>>> $24 paid $5.97

Put A Lid On It>>>> $18 paid $3.97

Sephora Favorites Kits Haul x3

Okay, okay so am I the only one that falls for these kits, I mean seriously? I absolutely LOVE these amazing kits from sephora, every time a new one releases, I have to at least check it out, if not buy it lol. I have 3 sephora favorite kits to share with you today, that I recently was able to get, some of these are currently sold out on the website, but they are still available in store, both the inside JCPenny store, and sephora. These kits are such high value, for a great price, they tend to sell out very quickly! One of these kits isn’t even on the website yet, also is exclusive to JCPenny stores, but is brand new, I just happened to see it, and knew I had to have it. So like I said there is 3 kits, they are the following:

*Bronze Bares All* $39

FullSizeRender 5 FullSizeRender 6 FullSizeRender 7

*Ultimate Cleanse* $34

image1 image2 image3

*Sun Safety Kit* $32

image4 image5 image6

Now that I have bombarded you with pictures, lol so many great kits right? I am so glad that I got all 3, I am already using them, and really am loving the huge variety that each kit offers. The sun safety kit has really come in handy because we have had extremely hot weather here lately, and will continue to through summer, yeah for sun! Let’s talk about a few favorites from each kit- Number one favorite from all the kits is the Nars lip gloss from the bronze bares all kit, that lip gloss is life, seriously always am impressed with anything nars, and when it’s full size, even better, yes please! I also really love the becca opal mini from that kit, I have a full size and absolutely love it, but it’s great to have a travel size for on the go highlight bling! Okay, my favorite thing from the ultimate cleanse kit is definitely the fact that you can pick from any of the samples included, and get a full size of it, I literally was shocked, some of the prices for full size is way more than the kit even cost, such a great value, it was a awesome addition, I love when the kits include these vouchers, so great! My favorite thing in the sun safety kit is the the fresh sugar lip treatment, this stuff lasts forever, and has always worked so well for my chapped lips, I love it! Where you able to get any of these kits? Which one is your favorite? Let me know!
