Tight wallet Tuesday : Belletto studio HD airbrush

20130910-100613.jpg

It’s Tight wallet Tuesday! Sorry it has been awhile! I’ve been pretty busy! But, I’ve finally figured out a schedule to continue blogging, be a mom, continue my makeup artist gigs and my new endeavor going back to college for my general Ed. So anyways enough about the ranting and raving!

I have a new TIGHT wallet Tuesday and Its the Belletto studio airbrush machine! Okay so I’ve been on a hunt for a nice compact airbrush machine. A lot of times brides request airbrush makeup and I just honestly did not like the idea of dragging around the big iwata compressor that I already have! It was huge and heavy . So I finally decided on the Belletto studio because it has great reviews and a pretty good price! Originally this set is around $350 but I got the best deal ever on Groupon!

Have you guys ever used Groupon? Groupon is great! So I got this on groupon last week for $89! Yes $89 it includes the airbrush gun, the compressor , 2 foundation colors, a blush , a highlighter and the airbrush cleaner! Such an amazing deal.

Why airbrush?
A lot of people tend to love Airbrush makeup because it gives you a nice flawless finish, the actual product is water proof or water resistant. It is also super quick and efficient and a little product goes a long way.

Want one?

Be on the look out because sometimes Belletto studio will also have promotions on hautelook! It’s so worth it! Once I play around with it i’ll show you before and after photos!

If you have always wanted an airbrush machine and it was never within your budget now you can definitely afford it!

Makeup of the day: Blues Clues

20130828-201328.jpg

While cleaning through my makeup I ran into a blue eyeshadow that I absolutely loved when I worked at MAC called tilt ! And decided to have a field day on my eye makeup! I used royal wink fluid line and tilt on the lid, Samoa silk on the crease, and contrast on the outer crease. Don’t forget my homewrecker lashes from true or false lasheS!

Hope you enjoyed the makeup of the day!

We love lashes Wednesday: Wink of Pink Maybelline Great Lash

20130821-115825.jpg

So you’ve all seen my wonderful Maybelline great lash haul from target the other day! I figured I might as well swatch and try all of the colors and present them to you in my ” we love lashes Wednesday series”.

Today’s first great lash limited edition mascara I will feature is the wink of pink! I’ve never had a pink mascara so I was pretty excited to try it!
As you can see from the photos this mascara is really pink! It was even pink enough for my boyfriend to say ” hey your eyelashes are pink” !
The pigment is even more intense when you apply a lash primer underneath. I used tartes lash primer and got great results!

The photo above shows my lashes before, mascara without primer and mascara with primer!

This is definitely a game changer! Too bad its limited edition! Better hop on ir before they disappear! Maybelline does it again!

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?!

It gives you buildable volume without clumping! The brush on this mascara separates like no other!

Best of all it comes in multiple colors like the basic dark brown, black, blackest black. But it also comes In royal blue, and purple, and green different times of the year!

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!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: L’oreal Colour Riche Le Balm SPF 15

One of my all time favorite lip balms is Fresh sugar lip treatment! I love it because it spreads like butter on the lips, it has a hint of color and best of all there is an SPF 15. Just like it is extremely important to have SPF to protect your face and body it is extremely important to have an SPF in your lip balm. Our lips are highly capable of getting sunburned as well as wind burned and to prevent this we must use an SPF on the lips!

Although the FRESH sugar lip treatments are amazing and come in approximately 8 different shades from nice nudes to bright corals they are a tiny bit pricey for 0.15 oz lip balm. They will run you approx $22.50 each one! That’s a little more than I’d like to pay for a lip balm, but I’ve done it and I do not regret it. But, when you’ve just paid your car payment and rent and other things and your pockets might not be able to splurge on that $23 lip balm I might have a pretty similar product for you!

ImageWhile at my favorite drugstore CVS I decided to purchase these L’oreal Colour Riche Balm SPF 15! I decided to try them because it was buy one get one 50% off and it had an SPF 15. My daughters lips tend to get pretty chapped and I figured these would be great for her! These Loreal lip balms are only $8. Just like the fresh sugar lip treatments they have approximately 6-8 colors and they are moisturizing with an SPF.

They definitely aren’t as soft and creamy as the fresh sugar lip treatments but they definitely do the job!

So if you are on a hunt for a lip balm with an SPF which you should be and $23 is way too pricey check these out at your local drugstore! Summers around the corner, protect yourself.
