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!
