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?!

Last night on Instagram Beyonce shocked all of us with a photo of a pixie cut! Most of us were trying to figure it out if it was the real deal or if she was a rocking a wig. But this morning sources are saying she chopped it off!
I love it! She has a beautiful face with great face structure! I actually chopped my hair that short 3 years ago! It’s a nice fresh start and plus its just hair!
It will grow back quickly and on top of that we will never see the ugly growing out in between stage because she has the funds to get her the best weave In town!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Wet & Wild “Fergie” On Edge Creme Eyeliner

Out of all the topics I post on my blog Tight Wallet Tuesday is my absolute favorite topic! It’s been a little while since I’ve brought you guys one of these! But I’m truly happy that this is one of my comeback post!

This product makes you say MAC fluidline who?! No lies the consistency, the color pay off , the price, the staying power! This doesn’t even give Mac a run for their money it RAN Mac.

This mystery product is Wet and Wild’s “Fergie” creme liner “on the edge”. It comes in black – little black dress and a brown cocoa Riche!

20130730-101623.jpg

So I figured I would buy the brown color because my dip down fluidline from MAC was completely dried out. I was $5 away from free shipping on drugstore.com and this was perfect $4.99!

20130730-101849.jpg

So the jar looks pretty similar to the fluidline packaging shown above! It’s a nice rich brown and it glides on like you would not believe!

20130730-102022.jpg

I promise you this product is long lasting, waterproof, smudge proof and it has a crease resistant finish so you can use it as a base for a bold smokey eye!

And to add to the amazingness it’s not tested on animals!

It’s a 0.10 oz but a little goes an extremely long way! And actually MAC fluidline is the exact same size
At $16! You can buy almost 4 of these for the price of one!

This product will leave you saying MAC fluidline who? $16 for what?

Go out and get it! You’ll love me for it!

Back with another Manic Monday Mask Review! It’s been a minute since I’ve reviewed a mask! This mask right here is one of my absolute favorite masks! I know I say that about a lot of things but this mask gives me instant gratification immediately! 

So just a little history on the mask! It’s made in California my home state! Hollywood to be exact. It was created to be your quick fix before you hit the red carpet. It’s created for both men and women, all ages, and all skin types! It’s a quick 10 minute mud mask that you can apply before hopping in the shower.

What is this amazing mask supposed to do for your skin?

It is designed to give you the glow back in your skin, exfoliate, tighten, smooth and soften the skin. It also removes impurities without removing the natural oils in your skin! 

How do you use it?

What is making my skin amazing?

 

* French Sea Clay: absorbs toxic substances and impurities
