Target Haul! (I'm BACK!)

Sorry I've been M.I.A. I've been super busy getting settled etc. I am still looking for a place to take pics so until I find a good place that works this is what we've got to work with O_o

Anyways thanks for following : )

I wanted to try these new Sonia Kashuk Full Volume Lashes that my friend Jackie tweeted a couple weeks ago. I think I'm really gonna like them since I've been wearing shorter and less spike-y lashes.

$4.99 each at Target

idk why these next few pics came out vertical but...I also do not know how to fix it on here LOL.

Grabbed another pair of the Sonia Kashuk Full Glam Lashes (These use to be my favorites for like...ever!...now I feel like theyre kinda long for me but I still like them a lot)

$4.99 each at Target

I wanted to try these ELF lashes, I've heard they're bad but....I needed to find out for myself O_o We shall see.

$1 from eyeslipsface or Target (well anywhere that carries ELF)

I left my Voluminous Carbon Black at home so I decided to re-purchase another. I actually really like this mascara. The first time I tired it, hated it then tried it again a few months ago and really enjoyed it.

it was $4.99 at Target and there was a $1 OFF coupon so 


OMG these are my favorite eyeliners for the waterline! I found 2 AQUA ones which I have a reallly hard time finding so I had to grab em. And I was like what the heck...might as well get another black one. LOL. 
(I have all of the colors from this range. They have new ones that are auto sharpen but I am skeptical. Anyone try them yet?)

$5.99 each at Target

ENJOY! I hope to be back with more posts as I get settled and organized here.

Walgreens Haul!

What I originally went for! L'Oreal Lash Serum. I have already used one full tube of this and have seen results. I will do a video talking about my experience and before and after what not at a later date. This one has no harmful drugs or anything like that its just nourishing to help boost your lashes more naturally (like taking vitamins or using a night cream) (which is why I chose it : ) 

I actually find its cheaper at Wal-mart though...about $10 and change there. Its $14 or $15 at my Walgreens.

Limited Edition Maybelline Unstoppable Highlighters

in Fluffy Cloud and Twilight Pink

I expected them to be a little shimmery but they are actually kind of matte. Reminds me a lot of the Benefit eye bright but in a nice skinny form. These are the same packaging as the Unstoppable eyeliners. I think these will be pretty multi purpose. 

I would say you all could live without these lol. I mean get them if you want them but I wouldn't say they are super special. I won't be getting backups BUT I think they are cool because they are kind of the only drugstore type of highlighter like this that I've seen. If you do get one I recommended the pink.

These are $7.49 at my Walgreens and there was a $1 OFF Coupon on the marketing.

Picked up another Milani Liquifeye! These are my FAVORITE! So creamy and pigmented! MAKE SURE TO LET THEM SIT A LITTLE TO LET IT SET AND DRY OTHERWISE THESE WILL SMUDGE A BIT! I have heard a lot of ppl complaining but these are the longest lasting, least smudgy pencil liner on me. (sharpen or automatic)

I've never seen this Aqua one before and since Turquoise is my favorite exotic color to wear I hadddd to pick this up. I LOVE IT! I want to collect them all. There was only one so I wasn't able to grab a backup. : \ These seem to be always sold out everywhere lol.

Happy Shopping!

Over $100 on Socks? *SMH* Urban Outfitters Order

LOL. I don't have much to say about this other than I have a problem with buying back ups. 

I am always on the look out for cute ankle socks to wear with heels especially since Spring is coming. I just think its a cute look sometimes. (The black ones I just think are interesting  and cool to change a look for night)

The tights I loveddd in Jen's Outfit of the Day video, had to buy 2 just in case one got snagged or something. idk. Not sure how I'll like these on me though, we shall see. If not I'll just return em or blog sale em.

Eve Pearl Foundation in Medium

Ordered from Hautelook. I believe it was on sale for $40 something? I don't remember and its not printed on my receipt. The color is a little darker than I usually use but not bad. After all is said and done matches pretty well. LOVE the packaging and comes with a nice velvet-type pouch. 

Full retail I believe is $54 from EvePearl.com

I like that it can be worn sheer to med-full coverage. It doesnt look as thick as i thought it might. (esp. for a cream foundation) Still need to test it more to see if and how much I like it.

Dark Circle Eye Treatment + Concealer in Sheer Tint
about $13 at drugstores

I don't know if its doing anything for my dark circles but I really like the idea of it and its a nice quick and easy under eye concealer and has really decent coverage. Will not replace my beloved Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer (I use the color Light) butttt I enjoy using this for errand days etc. 

Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush $7 from Walmart
Color shown: Skinny Dipping

I just swirl them together to use for blush. The brownish color is a sheen finish and the orange is a matte. Both colors look much more wearable ON than in the box so dont be scared! I really like these! (idk if I'll get any additional though, all the others look like ones I already own.

So much to post but for now...A&F White Jeans...

I loveee A&F jeans! I couldn't resist picking up a few more pairs since they are about 20%-30% OFF lately.
(does anyone know why?)

I haven't had white jeans in a whileee but thought I'd pick some up since I have a new favorite cut from A&F The Brett Super Skinny
(I take a size 0, I kept purchasing a size 2 but they would stretch out sooo quick. I tried on a 0 at the store and they fit like a dream! They still stretch out after wearing them for a few hrs unfortunately.)

I also noticed they had some off the shoulder shirts as well so I wanted to try those out. (If I don't like them I'll just return them)

(I bought 2 of the same pairs because...I have a problem. LOL. I always like to have a fresh pair just in case I wanna wear them somewhere special or if anything happens to my other pair. I own 3 pairs now of the destroyed wash from this cut. I may purchase more O_o)

After Shipping and Tax it came to $170 and change.  Gahh I hate how quickly things add up!

Sorry for the delay....Tory Burch - MAC - Lancome

I've wanted these ones for a while now and I figured that since I didn't get the CLs that I wanted I might as well get these plus these were under $250 and the CLs would have been over $700 so...I kinda got a deal? well no cause their price is their price but....you know what I mean! *trying to justify* LOL

I don't regret it though I like these more than my original pair!
(bought these from Nordstrom)

MAC Wonder Woman Mighty Aphrodite Blush

I had really wanted this one but it was Sold Out online when I pre-ordered my stuff. I stopped by my local MAC and scooped this! So glad I did. I like this one better than the other but like them both a lot. Mine was weird when I bought it like someone had touched it but I can't be bothered to return it but now that I've been using it its getting kinda weird like...when you see things that have been swatched too much and they get kinda nasty and swatch uneven with that hard layer over it....O_O idk if any of you know what I'm talking about. LOL. Although...it could be from trying to get a good swatch for you guys for these pics...lol. O_o okay I'm gonna stop with that ramble now. hahaha. 

MAC Kissable Lipcolor in Woo Me

I had originally passed on this but I've seen a lot of ppls blog posts and YT videos saying they picked this one up so naturally I got curious. And I'm glad I did because I freakin LOVE the color! It doesn't look so brown on me since my natural lipcolor is a dark/bright pink, it still shows through and just makes a really pretty soft and feminine nude. LOVE! 

...I purchased 3, may go back and get more O_O 

I like it better than the pink one (Enchantee) actually.

Lancome L'Aboslu Rouge in Rose Essencea

This is my favorite Lancome lipstick formulation! So smooth and moisturizing plus the magnetic cap is love!
This color is pretty tied with Rich Cashmere, which was my favorite from this line. This color is still a nude but def. on the peachy side. Again, very pretty and feminine.
(I had a swatch but I lost it...if you follow me on twitter you know that damn deal LOL)

I have a bunch more stuff I can't wait to show you! : ) I dread having to take all the pics >_<
I also just placed an order for some YSL Rouge Pur Glosses! I'm excited! I ordered 3 ($30 a pop! O_O *dies)

 Amazon Princess Blush, Reflects Bronze Glitter
$24, $21
