This is a collective haul I did not purchase these all at one time! Each nail polish is 8$ each. BUT a few I got from my local TJ Maxx for 3.99$ HOW GREAT IS THAT!!! I was so excited when I saw the price, I am thinking they are older colors.

2. Luxe Effects Stroke Of brilliance
3. Midnight Cami
4. Dive Bar
5. Soirée Mauve 3.99$

Flirt! Blush Swatches and Reviews (All Dolled Up and Pink Tutu)

I picked up two of the Flirt! brand blushes! You can get these from your local Kohl's or online by Clicking HERE! These blushes cost 14.50 each, which used to be the price of a MAC Blush! I chose Pink Tutu and All Dolled Up These brushes have great color payoff! a little goes a long way most definitely, so don't just swirl your brush around all crazy on this blush and then applying it to your face because you will end up looking like a clown. Build up to the color you want with using a little at a time. I don't think I would pay 14.50 again for these blushes, I would rather save my money get another dollar and buy two MAC blushes!! haa ok moving on.
The flash doesn't really do the colors justice it totally takes away the pink and rose in these blushes! making them look more like bronzers, the colors are very gorgeous though. I just think the price is not fitting for the product, but since it is Kohl's everything is overpriced there.

Here are some swatches: The order of the photos goes in this order for the first two: Top row: Left to Right: Natural light(NL), then flash(F). Bottom Row: Natural Light, Natural Light.

(Left to Right)Top Row: NL, F  Bottom Row: NL, NL

(Left To Right) Top Row:NL, NL, Bottom Row: F, NL

Now this one could be a bit confusing although I am hoping you can tell which is flash and which is natural light. Anyways the Left Longer side is flash while the upper right picture is natural light. In the longer left picture and upper right picture : Pink Tutu is the first swatch, it has gold shimmer in it and is a bit more rosey then the one beside it. Next to Pink Tutu, All Dolled Up is swatched its more pink when swatched, it just have a bit of shimmer in it.

Overall I really love these blushes I just don't agree with the price tag.

Would you pick up these blushes? What do you think about them?

Lumene Day & Night Creams

Lately I have been very intrigued with this brand, but a lot of their things can be very very  pricey! I'm always excited to get something for cheap from this brand because you know its good quality! So I saw these mini super cute day and night creams! I'm like this will be a great way to try the product before I pay over 20$ for the full size item. I paid roughly 3-4$ for each of these mini cream jars. I picked them up from my Local Drug Store, I haven't had a chance to try the creams out, but I am hoping I will get the chance this week so I can review it and see how I feel about it. Now i thought oh paying 3-4$ and they are in these mini jars they won't be much product in the jars, but when I opened it up I was pleasantly surprised. They are filled to the brim as much as possible!! and I think that with face products a little always goes a long way.
They have a light normal face cream smell, except the Vitamin C+ Day Cream has a light citrus scent. All of these creams are made with Artic heather(?) The day creams have an SPF of 15. Each Jar is 15ml or 0.5 fl oz.  I would have got the Vitamin C+ Night Cream but I didn't see any available in the mini size. So here are the creams broken down. Also the Firming Day Cream has a kind of off white color tone, while the Firming Night Cream has a Bright very bright white color tone, and the Pure Radiance Day cream has a light orange tint to it.

1. Firming Day Cream- TIME FREEZE 
2. Firming Night Cream- Time Freeze goes with the above mentioned day ream
3. Pure Radiance Day Cream Vitamin C+ 

Here are some pictures:

Lumene Finland: Matt Touch Deep- Cleansing Peat Mask Review!

So I was at my local drug store and saw this mask, Im not sure why it got my attention? Maybe the colors or the promise it made to tighten my pores and absorb the oil on my face! or maybe its that its from another country? Either one of those would do it for me. I picked this up for 9.99 at my local drugstore! but you could get it from Ulta on sale for only 6.99$ CLICK HERE 
As soon as I got home I tried it out, it smells EXACTLY like a sample I received in My October 2011 Birchbox. The sample was Pangea Organics Facial Mask HERE.. It does smell lighter then Pangea Organics , and the cost difference is massive 6.99-9.99 as opposed to 40$ for the Pangea Organics. There is a slight ounce difference but not bad at all for the price and what your getting 3.4 fl oz in Lumene Finland mask and 4fl oz in the Pangea Organics, which I think is another plus about this product! The texture also is different I remember the Pangea Organics being very chunky and hard to apply to my skin, I would have more product on my fingers from applying it then on my face. BUT with the Lumene Finland Matt Touch Deep-Cleansing Peat Mask its smooth like a mousse, and has little to barely any tiny specks.
This is by far ALOT better then Pangea Organics Facial Mask!
This mask is also Paraben-Free and has over 85% natural ingredients!!
After I used the mask and rinsed it off I did notice a few blotches of redness..they faded after about 5 minutes, but my skin looked pretty fabulous after I used it. It says for best results use 1-2 times a week, and leave on for 10 minutes! Over time you should notice oil absorption and tighter pores!!

Here are some product pictures!

I am loving this product a whole bunch more knowing its alot like the Pangea Organics BUT BETTER and cheaper!!! :)

Pink Ombré Update!

So the Splat! Hair kit I recommend AGAINST! I loved the results after doing the bleaching and adding the color and how it looked, but every time I have gotten in the shower the water is pink. Now I have dyed my hair funky colors before and I never had that problem! The pink looks more natural but I'm going for a stand out bright vibrant look!! So Since the pink is now faded, I stopped at Sally's a few days ago and picked up some gloves and a different brand of hair dye! They were out of my favorite Manic Panic Pink! So I chose Beyond the Zone Pro Formula Color JamZ Bubble Head Pink , and Colortrak Black Reusable latex Gloves.

Zoya nail polish HAUL!!

So Zoya was having a BOGO(buy one get one) special but you had to have a code. So I got a few polishes I have been eyeing up one for quite some time and finally decided this is te perfect chance to get that and a few others!
I chose:
- Robyn- gorgeous sky blue
- Song- shimmery dark deep blue (reminds me of China Glazes Blue Year's Eve- except China glaze is a bit bluer)
- Rory- shimmery magenta pink

I will do swatches in another post, also a side by side comparison of China Glaze's Blue Year's Eve & Zoya's Song!

Did anyone else use Zoya's BOGO Code? What did you get?

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr in Bad to the Bronze & Tough As Taupe Review and Swatches

So I waited a bit before I bought these, a lot of te time new things come out and people just want it for the hype. So I waited looked up tons of swatches etc. and decided these were the two I would get! I love taupe colors and bronze colors so of course these were perfect!!! They are super creamy!! I do not love these more then my paint pots though!! But these are also fantastic quality for being Drug Store brand. They are about 6-8$ depending on where you get them. Totally worth purchasing! You can use them as a base or alone! The colors are so gorgeous!!!!

Do you have any of the Maybelline Color Tattoos? Are you wanting to get some? And what colors?

NOTD: Midnight Starry Sky

For my nails I used:
- L'Oreal Stroke Of Midnight
- Essie Pure Pearlfection
- & some confetti stars

Eylure Katy Perry Lashes

I am a big fan of Katy Perry, so I saw these lashes and I just had to have them. I don't know why, I am so terrible at applying lashes! There are four different lashes: Sweetie Pie, Cool Kitty, Pretty, & Oh, Honey! All of the lashes come with eye glue except Pretty which is Self Adhesive. They all came with Stickers that had the eyelash names on them except Pretty which I may or may not have accidentally lost it while opening it up.
The eyelashes are round 6-8$
