I have become a bit of makeup snob after trying some high end products. Now more expensive does not always equal better but I have found in regards to makeup it can. So onward to some products I picked up at Wally that I really like.
NYC Cheekglow in “Riverside Rose”
This blush on my fair skin gives me a nice healthy natural color. It is not super pigmented but at around the $3 mark I can afford to layer it up.
Flower Nail’d It Nail Lacquer in “NP10 What’s the Daffodilly-O”
This polish looked like a pretty coral color to me in the bottle. The formula is good consistency neither to thick or thin. It is also free of DBP, toluene & camphor. Best of all it is around $5! I am excited to try more from this line, I love Drew Barrymore’s style and the packaging on all the products is super cute.
L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara
I am a mascara whore, Yes I said whore. I cannot be faithful to one mascara, I am constantly on the search for the newest and best. How difficult can it be to make a volumizing, lengthening and thickening mascara?! Apparently impossible, but I still search for the holy grail of mascara. Until this day of miracles come around I will be content with trying every mascara under the sun. That said, I may purchase this one again! It does give me some volume and then I can put a layer of a lengthening mascara on top. And you can’t beat a mascara that cost around $6.
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….
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.
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.
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.
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!
