Wash & Go;

Hey guys! So today I decided to do a hair post. Yesterday[4/23], I decided to do a Wash & Go. I actually was transitioning[20 months] & JUST cut off my relaxed ends Friday. I`ve been DYING to try out a WnG. I used the Curls Goddess Curls, it popped my curls in the back & on the sides, but for the front, I needed something a bit more heavier. I used the Organic Root Stimulator Smooth & Hold Pudding for the front & scrunched. For some reason, the front just won`t curl. :/ I`m thinking it`ll take a little while for my hair to finally pop. No worries, I have all the time in the word to be natural. :] So here are some shots of my hair.

I still see SOME relaxed ends lingering. Hopefully, they`ll be gone shortly :]

NYX Nude on Nude Palette Swatches;

Hey guys! So I heard about this palette on a blog. They compared it to The Naked Palette, only it had MORE colors & MORE matte shades. Plus it is ALOT easier to find & more affordable than the Naked Palette. It also comes with lip colors, which I won`t be using, as I am NOT fond of those type of lip products. After I saw swatches online I knew I had to have it! I must say, the pigmentation is AMAZING with these shadows. The swatches below are one swipe except for about 2 that were a little sheer. Overall, I`m happy with the purchase. I do however, wish I comparison shopped before I bought this. I purchased on Cherry Culture for $25, but later discovered this could be purchased cheaper on & for a bit cheaper. Lesson learned!

The palette & the packaging.

The palette;
[At first, I was confused on how to open the lipcolors
(I have the WORST trouble opening things XD ),
you have to push it from the back.]

Top Row Swatches;

Bottom Row Swatches;

I do recommend this palette for someone on a budget

or just looking for an alternative to the Naked Palette.

Have you guys purchased this palette?

If so, thoughts? :]

Saturday, April 16, 2011 haul;

Hey Guysss! So recently I made a purchase from, they are similar to Cherry Culture, as they also carry discounted makeup, except they sale only NYX. I heard about this site from a lovely lady on twitter[@Kysbelm on twitter] & had to check it out! I heard they were raising prices 4/1/2011, because NYX was raising their prices, so I had to order! Recently I did look at the site & only a few of the products prices have raised from what I see. Still, definately cheaper that the official NYX site & CC. Shipping was AWESOME! I ordered on April 1st & got my items that Monday, the 4th. They do use USPS priority & it comes from L.A. Here are the goodies I got & swatches!

I ordered 7 NYX round lipsticks for $1.99 each. They came in these boxes & the other was bubble wrapped with my lipglosses.



Swatches of the lipsticks;
I ordered 3 MegaShine Lipglosses. They WERE $2.75, but have now increased to $3.50.Photobucket

I also got a powder blush in Peach for $3.95 & a single eyeshadow in Deep Bronze for $3.45. The blushes are now $4.25 & the shadows are now $3.75. Again, still both cheaper than CC.

Here are swatches of the glosses, blush, & eyeshadow.

Well I hope you guys enjoyed the haulage!
Have you guys recently purchased any NYX goodies? Enjoy your Saturday! forever courtney; :]
