MUA Haul;

Hey Beauties!
I have a MUA haul to share with you guys!
Rai tweeted about a sale MUA Cosmetics was having & I decided to browse.
This is a brand located in the UK and they do ship to the US.
They were having 25% off sale PLUS free shipping to the US.
I couldn`t pass up browsing with that offer!
When I first visited the site, the brand reminds me somewhat of Sleek mixed with ELF.
Their variety wasn`t too appealing to me, but the palettes & glosses intrigued me.
I decided to pick up a few things & all together I think I spent around $12.

12 Shade Undressed Palette.
I had to get another neutral palette.
You guys know I love my neutrals!

12 Shade Poptastic Palette.
This palette really "popped" out to me when I was looking online.
I decided to go ahead & pick it up to do some fun, colorful looks.

[Top to Bottom;]
MUA Out There Plumping Glosses in Pin Up Pink & Buff
MUA Lipgloss in Shade 4.
So far I`ve only used Buff. As we know, with plumping products, there is a slight tingling.
The tingling lasted for about 10 minutes when I used this gloss. Definitely wasn`t expecting it to last that long.
Excited to try out the MUA Shade 4 Lip Gloss.

Blusher in Shade 5.
The blushers were super cheap, only £1.00.
I decided to pick a random shade & this happened to be the one.

I will certainly have swatches up soon.

Did you guys get to order any MUA goodies?
If so, what`d you pick up?

Thanks so much for reading!
You guys are the best!

Beyond the Rack MAC Haul;

Hey Beauties!
Recently I made a purchase from Beyond the Rack.
I had a credit for $15 & got an e-mail about a MAC Cosmetics sale.
[I hope everything was authentic]
I was super excited about the selection they had.
There were foundations, blushes, eyeshadows, & lip glosses.
I decided to pick up one lip gloss.
It`s actually called a Superglass, which is Limited Edition.
The shade I purchased is Superflash!
It`s a pretty pink shade with some fun golden shimmer.

One thing that did upset me about Beyond the Rack was their Customer Service, or lack thereof. I attempted to "Live Chat" with one of their reps after I placed the order. I did not realize the shipping would be $10, which is IMO totally outrageous for only a lip gloss! I initially wanted to cancel the order, but when I asked the rep how to do so, I got ignored. I found the answer myself & later got a reply of "I`m Sorry". Their shipping cost and customer service have turned me off from future purchases. I may browse, but that will probably be about it.

On a brighter note, I figured there was no point to cancel since my Superglass was technically $10. Their website says it would take about 4 weeks for me to receive the gloss, however, my order shipped about 1-2 days later & I received it within a week. That was a huge surprise that I was not expecting!

I will certainly have my new Superglass swatched soon for you guys.
Thanks so much for reading!

Fab Finds; Big Lots

Hey beauties!
Sorry for yet another brief hiatus.
I went on another mini vacation to Florida & that should be my last for the summer.
A few weeks ago I popped into a Big Lots & found some goodies.
I thought I would share with you guys what I found!

I found the CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion & Volume.
I have tried the Lash Blast Volume before & loved it!
The Lash Blast Fusion is new to me. I have tried it once & so far, so good.
I will certainly do a full review if needed!
The best part about these?
They were only $1.50 each!

I also found a product I used to LOVE.
It is the Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship.
From what I can remember, I believe they changed the formula & the label on the bottle.
I decided to pick this up & try the new version.
This was super cheap too!
Only $1.50.

Again, sorry for the brief hiatus.
I will be back to blogging regularly again soon.
Thanks so much for reading!

Happy Birthday E.L.F.

Hi beauties.
I wanted to inform you all of the 50% off sale ELF is having today.
This would be a great time to try the ELF`s Gypsy lipstick I used in my LOTD post or the amazing Baked Blushes & Bronzers I featured.

*I have posted my affiliate link in this post. You can certainly go to ELF`s site directly to take advantage as well!

Hey beauties!
This is a little mini hair update.
I just wanted to share with you all my new "peak-a-boo" highlights.
I actually had some highlights before these, but I wanted a few more.
My sister & I bleached each other's hair [I know, not too safe].
I wanted a change in my hair, but I didn`t want to cut it.
They came out quite nice, I love the color.
I`ll be doing a video soon showing how I bleach my hair.

Have you ladies gotten any hair color or changed your hair lately?
If so, what`d you do?

Thanks so much for reading!

July Favorites;

Hey beauties!
I normally don`t do "favorites" posts, but this month I had a few items I was using regularly & decided to share.
I have some makeup, nail polish, & hair products to share with you.

Makeup Favorites;
Avon`s Ideal Flawless Loose Powder in Fawn. I picked up this product just to test it out. I thought it was going to be the wrong color, but it`s actually matches quite well. This powder feels very light & does not cake on. It`s very easy to control the coverage level you need.

ELF`s Cream Liner in Black. I`ve had this for a while, but never opened or used it. Since I ran out of my liquid liners, I figured I would give this a shot. It goes on very smooth & is easy to work with. I definitely have enjoyed using this product this month for a quick wing liner.

MAC`s Touch lipstick. You beauties know I love MAC`s Lustre finish. This lipstick is the perfect brown nude. I`ve used it so much already this month & will definitely be repurchasing.

L`Oreal Colour Riche in Violet Chiffon. The price tag is not too pretty, but the color is. This shade is the most perfect drugstore pink-ish, purple I have found. I love that it gives you decent pigmentation & hydrates your lips. It reminds me a little of MAC`s Lustre finishes.

Nail Polishes;
Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in Sweet Clementine. This is a gorgeous, bright, orange nail color. Since the beginning of Summer, I have really been into the bright shades. So when I saw this color, I knew it had to be added to my collection.

Avon`s Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel in Coral Reef. I saw this shade in a limited edition ad & thought it was a pretty color. I tend to stay away from pinks because they look odd on me. Once I tried this shade on my nails, I was singing a different tune. Absolutely a gorgeous shade.

Hair Products;
Mixed Silk By Silk Elements Leave-In Conditioning Creme. I ran out of my beloved Beautiful Textures this month & decided to use this product that I had left over. I used this quite a bit this month when my hair was curly. This leave-in provides great moisture to my hair & leaves my hair feeling light & soft to the touch. It does sort of smell like dish detergent which would be the only down side to this product.

365 Everyday Value Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil. I bought this from Whole Foods & just can`t get enough! I wore my hair straight about two weeks & I cannot use anything water based on my hair. If I do, poof, reversion. So, I turn to oils. Coconut oil is amazing for my hair, gives me great shine!

Palmer`s Olive Oil Gro Therapy. As some of you know, I tend to have dryness around my edges. I used this product around my edges to help with flakiness. It worked great & was only $1 at Big Lots! I did see a difference when I used this product. Also, it gave a nice shine to my hair as well.

I hope you guys enjoyed my July Favorites.
What poduct(s) did you guys enjoy this July?

Thanks so much for reading!
