Addiction Alert!!

I am such a beauty junkie that I have a set amount each month that I allow myself to spend on beauty related items.  Sometimes I buy a ton of drugstore stuff or splurge on one high end product.  And I have found a App that has fueled my addiction further by giving me high end products at lower (not quite drugstore) prices.  I have talked about the Tophatter app before on my blog.  I have not visited the app in a few months and just this weekend hopped on to see what I could find and boy did I find some deals, and I can’t wait to share them with you!  The first and probably what I am most excited about is

NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo in “the O word, and Laguna” Retail from Sephora $41.00 , Amazon $64.99 (What?! This stuff had better make me flawless for that price!!)  and Drumroll please, the price including shipping that I paid on Tophatter is… $26.00!!!!!  And yes I did a little happy dance when I won and I texted my sister to let her know of my steal.

theBalm FratBoy Shadow/Blush. This velvety smooth, peachy-apricot shadow/blush adds the perfect amount of color for a foxy flush so you look stellar around the clock. Frat Boy leaves you with a face that’s pretty and polished. Retails for $21.00 from theBalm , $14.86 on Amazon and including shipping I paid….  $12.00!!

As you can tell I am on a bit of a blush kick right now, I also bought this beautiful color from mark called “Charmed”.  This is the first blush I have used from mark and I really like it!  The pigmentation is good and it lasts all day.  Retails for $9.00 via mark 

What are your ‘go to’ blushes?  Do you stick to one or two, or a plethora like me? Let me know in the comments below!! 

April Favorites

Sorry for the long absence.  I have a job that I work like a crazy person for a few months out of the year  and barely have time to eat and sleep let alone keep up with a blog.  So moving on….

 Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Mudslide

Very pretty pinky nude color. While I am not sold on the “complete manicure” part , I like the color and the formula is good, but the brush is AMAZING!!  It is very wide and I can paint my nail in two swipes.  $6.50 at Wally World.

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner

 I saw this at Ross and picked it up. First time I used it I was not really impressed and I thought it smelled weird, second time I used it I thought the smell was so bad there is no way I will use this again.  I am not the type of person to throw away something I bought so I held onto it with the thought that I would find someone to pawn the smelly spray off on.  Fast forward a month and I had rolled my hair to tightly and had Shirley Temple curls, not cool.  So I sprayed this on my hair to loosen the curl. Hmmm strange doesn’t stink like I remember… and I got complements on how nice my hair smelled.  So I don’t know why I suddenly did a 180 on this product, but I love this stuff! Retails at Ulta for around $17 (which is expensive for me) but I paid $6.50 at Ross.

mark White Now Necklace

When I first got this necklace, I thought, “hmmm, well looks different then the picture but it’s cool.”  Seriously every time I wear it I get compliments , I loop mine like the picture so it is two strands.  $22.00 at mark.

Mask of Magnaminty

I love lush and this mask is no exception.  Unlike their fresh face mask, that you can only buy in store,  you can buy this one online as it does not have to be kept in the fridge.  But I like to keep my mine cool as it feels even more refreshing.  I like when you are removing the mask  the aduki beans act as an exfoliate, so you have a mask and light scrub in one!
