Over the past few weeks I have been buying a few beauty related products here and there and I will be reviewing most of these products soon. This post is just a general overview of some things I have accumulated, most of which have been on my wishlist for some time, to give you a sneak peek at what is to come.
I had $8.50 in CVS Extra Bucks and Milani was BOGO 50%, which usually is not a good enough sale for me to justify buying anything, but I wanted to use up the Extra Bucks. The CVS in my neighborhood did not have the new mineralized blushes in stock yet so I settled for the Luminous blush that has quite a lot of good reviews. I wanted to spend as little money as possible so I chose to get a nail polish which looks super interesting. The polish is a metallic taupe silver and I'm looking forward to trying it out soon even though it s not a typical spring color. Wet n' Wild is 40% this week at Rite Aid so I picked up one of their lipsticks since I heard a lot of good reviews and I do not have a coral lipstick in my collection. I'm slowly building my lipstick army :)
Last week I dropped by the Mac counter at Macy's to use up what I had left on a gift card to get the 239 shader brush. But the sales associate who helped me was not friendly or helpful and I ended up not being able to use up the money I had on my giftcard because she was extremely absent minded.... I will not go into depth about my experience day but I left the counter extremely annoyed. I have already used the brush a few times (which is why the tips of the bristles are pink) and I like it.
On Monday I made my second ever Lush haul because I ran out of toner and I had a few things I wanted to try. I got the big bottle of the Tea Tree Water and I wanted to get one of their fresh face masks so I asked for Cupcake. The guy who helped me was really nice and he asked if I tried any of their cleansers and I said no so he recommended Herbalism to me. I didn't need a facial cleanser but I asked for a sample and they were really nice about it. Some people are really peeved by the Lush sales associates but the store I go to is great. They are polite and friendly but not pushy at all. But back to what I hauled.... I repurchased Sugar Babe which is a body scrub I reviewed HERE and I wanted to try another product that seemed similar called Glorious Mud. I will be reviewing everything after I have used them a few times :)
I am planning to do a few posts on prom related makeup and beauty tips soon. I'll show you guys pictures from my own prom and stuff like that so stay tuned! Please leave requests and comments to tell me if there's a certain look you want to see ^^
