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!!¬†
