Took a stroll into the new Walgreens for nothing more than a box for shipping something I needed to return. The first thing I see when I walk in is this gorgeous cardboard display of maybellines fall 2013 on the runway collection!

It was like purple rain! I immediately went crazy and threw all of the purple lipsticks in my basket! Purple is my favorite color and I love it in lipstick form because its screams fashion forward! As I continued to look through what they had to offer, I died when I saw the purple gloss! Omg this gloss color I have never seen anywhere! It was like poisonberry by limecrime in a gloss form!

Here are swatches of the colors I purchased.

Target Haul: Maybelline Great Lash Limited Edition 2013

20130820-091633.jpg

For the last month I have been on the hunt for these limited edition Maybelline great lash mascaras! I first ran across the ad for these in Allure or Elle magazine about a month ago, I tore the advertisement out and put it in my planner to remind me. I don’t know about you but if I don’t have a list or a reminder these days I totally forget what I’m supposed to do/ or buy.

So to my surprise while back to school shopping I finally found them! In all 6 colors, and you know me couldn’t pick 3 so I got all 6! They were only $4.50 per mascara and the best colors ever. Plus, when I searched for them online on amazon people were selling them for $15 a mascara because they are limited and selling out! Super glad I found them!

The colors come in pink, berry, purple, blue, teal and green! And of course they all have extremely catchy names.

Pink = wink of pink
Teal = teal appeal
Purple = vision in violet
Berry = so very berry
Blue = I see blue
Green = green with envy

Did anyone purchase any of these mascaras? And if so which ones did you get?!

Tight Wallet Tuesday : Silver and Gold Dr. Martens

How many of you have shopped on hautelook.com?! I love that website! But what do I love more than that website super great deals that help the pocket instead of hurt the pocket! Which is why this is today’s tight wallet Tuesday!

I am a sucker for Docs aka Dr. Martens! I think it’s because after moving back to San Francisco from Los Angeles the weather is a lot cooler and I can Rock boots all the time! Plus I had a pair in the 90s that i loved dearly and the styles they come up with lately are just too cute not to!
So these silver and gold Leyton style docs I first ran across at the Dr martens store in soho New York and fell in love! Instead of a boot they are a leather sneaker super comfy and super cute! I know I needed then both but wasn’t ready to spend $80 per shoe!

Patience is definitely virtue because approximately 3 months later they were on hautelook! Yes hautelook! I was so excited and was thinking do I get them both?! And of course me the over consumer says “duh of course !” The price was $20 cheaper they were going for $59 each! So yes! I got both pairs for a little under $120 got free shipping and I am a happy camper!

If you are ever looking for great deals try hautelook! they have name brand deals for the house, the kids, men, women and beauty for less!

Those are my cute little shoes below! Don’t you love them??

REBLOG

Reblog: posting other people’s blogs on your blog.

I have tons and tons of gifted and talented friends! A lot of them are a jack of all trades! For example my friend Abe creator of his new line “All Black Everything” aka ABE! That’s super creative in itself has began to launch items here and there from his upcoming line! He just got in his new hat “REBLOG” because as a blogger the feeling of getting your posts reblogged is pretty cool! Knowing that someone out there thinks that what you post or what you’re saying is worth reposting makes you feel like “wow I’m actually reaching people”!
Like I mentioned my friends are extremely talented Abe is also a photographer! We did a quick 3 minute photo shoot. I modeled for him his new hat “Reblog”! Here are some photos from the shoot

Turn heads Thursday: Illamasqua Fierce intense lipgloss

20130523-132119.jpg
It’s Thursday! One day closer to the weekend and it’s time to turn heads! Take a step out of your comfort zone and try a color on your lips that screams out DOPE!
My color choice for today is purple! Purple is one of my fav colors and there are currently so many pigmented purple lipsticks out there!
This color on my lips is a true bright blue purple! The craziest part about it is that its a gloss. There is no lip liner and no lipstick underneath just pure gloss! If you have not tried illamasquas intense lipglosses I suggest you take a browse on http://www.illamasqua.com or stroll over to a sephora near you that sells illamasqua.

This purple is called Fierce and couldn’t have been named better! Super fierce! Throw this on with a simple eye maybe a winged out liner some bronzer and call it a day!

This lipgloss retails for $22 and a little goes a long way with this crazy intense pigment!

You will for sure be turning heads! Stay fierce my friends.

Fine Finger Friday’s : OPI Mariah Carey Liquid Sand Review

OPI Mariah liquid sand mini nailSo usually on Friday’s is when I re-paint my nails! This is only if i’m doing a regular manicure with regular nail polish. We all know that by Sunday these regular manicures have chipped! We walk around with embarrassing nails for an additional 2 days and by Wednesday we’ve had it! Wednesday is usually my nail polish removal day, and then I give my nails a breather for a few more days.

Which leads us to this Friday! Fine Finger Fridays today I will be reviewing the Mariah Carey OPI Collab liquid sand nail lacquers! I have actually had these sitting around the house for approximately 6 months and this is the first time i’m trying them! The kit comes with 4 mini liquid sand nail lacquers. It comes in 4 colors Get your Number, Cant Let go, The Impossible and Stay the Night.

Get Your Number:  Matte blue with sparkles

Can’t Let Go: Matte Purple with sparkle

The Impossible: Matte Fuschia with Star confetti

Stay The Night: Matte Black with red glints.

The color of choice today is Stay the Night. These liquid sands are basically like wearing a glitter polish that has a matte finish! It’s quick drying and it eliminates an additional step of applying a matte coat on top!

Stay the Night OPI nail lacquer

Liquid Sand is the perfect name for this polish! Once the nail polish is dry it has the same texture as sand paper!

I can’t believe I waited so long to try these polishes! I can’t wait to try the other 3 colors!

Fine Finger Friday: Reviewing the finest finds for your fingers!
