October Hits and Misses

Sterling Silver Chain with Elephant Pendant – Silver $19.99 From Target http://tgt.biz/Hx1exA

 14613041

I love this little necklace and I enjoy wearing it.  It is definitely a conversation starter, every time I wear it I get a compliment.

 Essential Little Black Beauty Book – Eye Edition in Warm $6.00 From e.l.f http://bit.ly/16FVlrh

I love finding quality product at a great price.  There are only a few products from e.l.f that I have been disappointed in and this is not one of them.  With 48 colors in a variety of matte, satin and shimmer there are endless looks to be created. This was the only eye palette I brought with me when I was out of town for a week.

Maybelline SuperStay 14 Hour Lipstick in Keep Me Coral $6.94 from Walmart  http://bit.ly/19CUJni

Ok bottom line does this lipstick give you color for 14 hours straight? No.  But does that mean you shouldn’t try it? No.  While it doesn’t live up to its claim of 14 hour wear it is still a long wearing color that doesn’t dry out your lips and has a great color pay off.  I love the shade Keep Me Coral and I feel like it really complements my skin tone, so it is a keeper.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Dark and Deep Brown $8.52 from Amazon http://amzn.to/Hx6122

FINALLY!!! A dry shampoo that doesn’t leave my hair with a white/gray cast and somehow also absorbs oil!  If you have dark hair and are struggling to find a dry shampoo that doesn’t make you look like you are three months past your root touch up then give this one a try.  And bonus, it doesn’t stink!

Bare Face Cleansing Oil $28.00 from Julep  http://bit.ly/187rllh

You have oily skin why would  you use oil to clean your face?  Good question, I don’t know why it works but it does.  While the price point on this is pretty steep ( I received mine in a julep maven box) this is by far the best cleansing oil that I have ever tried that doesn’t leave my skin with a slick feeling after being washed off.

Dark Orchid Raspberry Bubble Delight Bubble Bath $8.00 from Avon http://bit.ly/1ekBrGX

PROD_1164673_XL

I love Avon’s Bubble Bath formula.  It is seriously the best I have ever used. This bubble bath is scented with notes of rare orchids, intoxicating black raspberries and warm blonde wood which essentially smells like heaven!

No Misses I could think of this month, which I guess is a good thing!

I quit using eBay a few years ago because it brought out the gambler in me.  I have never been to a casino or done any “real gambling” but I think I should steer clear, I’m too competitive! But I discovered the Tophatter app and I am smitten! It is like a cooler and more hip eBay.  I went on a spending spree last night (and restrained myself and stayed within my budget).  One thing I love about this compared to eBay is that the bidding time is so short, I entered three showrooms and bought my three items within 45 minutes.  And it is so cute, the app is set up like an auction house as you can see below.

The person with the current highest bid has a top hat on hence the app name of Tophatter.  There are all kinds of goodies to be found here and I cannot wait to receive my wins!

Swarovski Elements Hoop Earrings paid $19 (including shipping) found a comparable pair on Swarovski website for $62.00!!

NYX Spring Fling Palette paid $13.00 (including shipping)  found on Nordstrom’s for $15.00.  I have never used any NYX eyeshadows so I am excited to give these a try and I don’t really have any pastel tones in my collection.

And my final and biggest discount was the 24k Amore Mio OroGold cosmetics Skin Exfoliation Peel Treatment.  I have never heard of this brand so I am curious to test it out.  I paid $18 (including shipping) and I found the same product on the Amore website for $124.95!  That’s a saving of $106.95!
