eBay Listings;

Hey ladies!
I just wanted to let you guys know I have a few things listed on eBay.

Thrift Gift; Dolce Vita for Target Boots

Hey fashionistas & fellow thrifters!
I recently decided to take a thrifting trip with my sister.
This is one of the rare times that we get to go thrifting together.
I was browsing a local Goodwill`s shoe selection & saw the cutest boots.
Sadly, they were a size 9.
I happened to take a peek inside & saw they were Dolce Vita for Target boots!
I was sooo excited & upset at the same time.
I wear a size 6 to 8, so I knew they couldn`t fit me.
I showed them to my sister & she fell in love with them!
I haven`t even told you guys the best part about this find!
These boots were only $4.59!
They looked as though they had been worn maybe twice.
Such an incredible find!

I definitely am going to have to start thrifting a bit more often.
I will be showing a few more finds this week.

Have you ladies found any amazing thrifting deals lately?
Also, do you guys like these kind of posts?
Let me know in the comment section!


Thanks so much for reading guys!
I really do appreciate it!

MAC`s Touch;

Hey beauties!
While I was in Vegas, I decided to pop by a MAC counter.
This counter was located inside of a Macy's.
The sales rep who assisted me was super nice & friendly.
I decided to finally pick up MAC`s Touch.
My sister owns this lipstick & I swatched it.
It was a gorgeous nude & I knew I had to have it!



The lipstick is a bit more brown than it appears in the photo.
The finish is a lustre, which is one of my favorite from MAC.
The texture is very smooth & it provides just the right amount of color for my lips.


Here I am wearing MAC`s Touch;

I absolutely love this lipstick & can definitely see myself wearing this a lot.
I`m pretty sure I`ll go through this lipstick quickly.


MAC`s Touch can be purchased at your local MAC store or counter.
You can also purchase this lipstick online at www.maccosmetics.com
The cost was $14.50.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post.
Thanks so much for reading!

MAC`s Surprise Me;

Hey beauties!
Recently I purchased a MAC limited edition lipstick from Jacqueline with FabDiva20.
She had a back up she hadn`t used & I definitely wanted to try this lipstick.



Surprise Me definitely was a surprise.
I was hoping this lipstick had a bit more pigmentation.
It just adds a small hint of pink to my lips, nothing major.
This shade glides on smoothly, as most lustre finishes do.
It does have a tiny, tiny bit of shimmer, but luckily it is not frosty at all.

Here I am wearing MAC`s Surprise Me;

This lipstick is a nice shade, but I think I`m going to be wearing a gloss over this lipstick.

This lipstick is limited edition, however, I was able to find it available for purchase.
You can purchase this lipstic on All Cosmetics Wholesale for $22.99.
Luckily for me, I was able to purchase for only $14.

Thanks so much for reading!
I hope you guys enjoyed!

Hope you guys enjoyed this quick NOTW.

Avon Haul #6;

Hey beauties!
This haul is long over due.
I actually bought these products back in late May or early June.
Some of these items are limited edition, so availability may have changed.
I did check online & currently everything is still on the site.

I picked up an Avon Nailwear Pro+ polish in Coral Reef.
The shade is gorgeous! You guys will see this shade in a NOTW soon.
I also picked up the Cherry Ice Exfoliating Foot Scrub for my mother.
This was only $1.19, so I could not pass that price up!
I have been waiting months to get my hands on the Avon Ideal Flawless Foundation. The shade I chose was Caramel & it is a perfect match. I have fallen in love with this foundation you guys! I will certainly be doing a review on this foundation soon.
I picked up some new face products.
First is the Avon Ideal Flawless Loose Powder in Fawn. They did not have this in the shade Caramel, but luckily it matches pretty closely. It comes with a sifter which is very handy to avoid spilling the product.
I also picked up the Hawaiian Shores Bronzing Petals Bronzer. This is really gorgeous & gives a nice little glow . It is shimmery, so if you don`t like a lot of shimmer, this may not be the bronzer for you.

As always, you can order Avon from my eStore or your local Avon rep.
I will be doing a review on the foundation, loose powder. & bronzer soon.

Have you ladies tried any of these products out yet?
Thoughts?

Thanks so much for reading!

Walmart Beauty Haul;

Hey beauties!
Before my vacation, I was browsing Walmart & found a new display of lip products from Rimmel London & Soft Lips. I know Soft Lips for their amazing lip balms, so I figured I would give the gloss a try. The Rimmel London lip gloss looked promising as well, however, most of the shades I wanted were open. I also found a nude lip gloss from the Maybelline ColorSensational line & decided to try it.
During my vacation, I noticed a very large display of Maybelline nail lacquers. I had never seen them, so I decided to pick up a few to try.
Onto my mini haul.

[L to R]
Soft Lips Sheer Lip Coral Gloss, Maybelline ColorSensational in Touch of Toffee[#255], & Rimmel London Stay Glossy in My Eternity[#260].


Soft Lips Sheer Lip Coral Gloss.
Price: $3.97.
This has SPF 10 which is always a plus! This is obviously not going to give off a ton of color, but I think it will be great for just a hint of color.

Maybelline ColorSensational in Touch of Toffee[#255].
Price: $5.50
This shade grabbed my attention as I was just browsing. This is a light nude brown with a few hints of shimmer. I am hoping it will not be too light on me.


Rimmel London Stay Glossy in My Eternity[#260].
Price: $3.97.
Rimmel London`s Stay Glossy gloss come in a few of pretty shades.
I picked up this shade because I thought it would be a nice mauve shade.
Plus it was one of the "untested" shades.

Lastly, I picked up the Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquers.
The two shades I got are Tenacious Teal & My Clementine.
Be sure to check here for swatches.

I hope you guys enjoyed this small haul.
I can`t wait to try out my new lip products!

Have you ladies seen any of these products?
Have you picked any up?
Thoughts?

FOTD; Pink Passion*

Hey guys!
Today I`m showing a FOTD from last month.
I wanted to do something with the color pink & used my BH Cosmetics palette that I hadn`t touched in a while.


I unfortunately don`t remember the exact shadows I used.
I do know that I used shadows from my Sleek Nude Palette & BH Cosmetics Custom Palette for the eyes.
On my cheeks I used Maui Bronzer from E.L.F.
For lips I used Avon`s Smooth Velvet Lipcolor in the shade Plumful.



Hope you guys enjoyed.

Protective Style #1; Just Twisted

Hey beauties!
Sorry for the brief hiatus. I was on another vacation.
It feels great to be back now!
I meant to put this up weeks ago, but I couldn`t get around to it.
Today I wanted to show a protective hairstyle that I had done by my sister.
I was bored & tired of my hair for a little bit, so I asked her to twist it up.
[I envy how perfect she does flat twists.]


She flat twisted about a third of my hair to the right & the rest was two strand twists.
After wearing that style a few days, I undid the two strand twists & a few of the flat twists. Another really cute hair style.

I`m planning to do more protective styling posts for you guys.
There are endless possibilities!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
Thanks so much for reading.
:]
