Eye Makeup Haul!







Hey Guys!
 
I have been posting a lot of hauls recently, and they may just keep coming!
 
I received a sort of beauty box, or well, a girly box a couple of weeks ago, and it included makeup, jewelry, and feminine products. It is called the TOM box. I believe it costs $10/month, however you can like them on Facebook and get your first month for $5!
 
The first product I received was this Cailyn Mineral Eye shadow Powder in the color Star Purple. It is a loose eye shadow that is great to add a pop of color to any look. It is a very pigmented color and is very beautiful. It retails for $12.00 on their website.
 
The second product is a liquid eye liner from Cargo Cosmetics in their black color. I was never a fan of liquid liners until I received this product. I am so glad that I received this product because it has really changed the way I apply eye liner by being so easy! It is very prominent and shows up well. It retails on their website for $20.00.
 
Lastly, this mascara was not a part of the TOM box, but the Walmart box that I talked about in a recent post. I have yet to try this product, so I will update you on how I like it soon. It retails on Walmart for $7.97, so I hope I enjoy this!
 
I will let you know that this past week was my spring break so I am probably going to upload some more hauls since I am writing this weeks before it will actually go up. I have also purchased another NARS single eye shadow, so look out for a post about that!
 
I hope you guys had a good spring break if you have already gone, or if you are about to, have fun!
 
Thanks for reading!

MAC Lippie #2!

 
Hey guys!
 
Last week I mentioned at the end of the lippies haul post that I had got a MAC lippie- which is this one right here.
 
As you can see, there is not a label on the bottom of this lipstick like most products would have. This is because I bought it off of a website that is called www.allcosmeticswholesale.com.
 
I have heard good things about this site, such as it is legit, and I believe it is. This product is what you would call a factory "blem" meaning something was wrong with it, so the company sells it at a reduced price.
 
I believe the color of this lipstick is Brave Red from what I can tell on the website, but I am unsure. ACW had it on their site under lipstick #2 so I am unsure.
 
However, since I do have another MAC lipstick, I did compare the two to look for differences, and I could not spot any. (If anybody notices any let me know)
 
I got this for- wait for it-
 
 
$4.99.
 
 
A MAC lipstick for literally a quarter of the price. If it is real that is.
 
I however have not had any problems with the lipstick itself, and I love the color. It is basically a shimmer color of my lips, so it adds a bit more ummph when I want to have those natural days. I guess you could call it a nude for my skin tone.
 
I suggest that everyone check out this website if you want some high end makeup for cheaper than the usual price. They also have some limited edition products, so it has a bit for any and everyone(:
 
Thanks for reading, and let me know if you get anything off this website!

Lippies Haul!
















 Hello there guys! Long time no see... Again. (:
 
I have been focusing on college, trying to bring up my GPA from last semester (Curse you math!) So I haven't really been thinking about what I could post on here.
 
However, I went home for the weekend a couple of weeks ago, and stopped by my local target. I found the clearance section (where I will ALWAYS be) and found the bottom two lippies for about $1.50 each!
 
The first lippie however I received in the $5.00 Walmart Beauty Box for Winter 2014-2015. This box came with this Hard Candy all glossed up hydrating lip stain in the color zippy 923 which I think is ADORABLE! It is a bright pink with loads of glitter, however the color doesn't really show up on my lips, while the sparkles go everywhere! They retail for $5.00 at Walmart, so right there my box was paid for!
 
The next lipstick is a Maybelline color sensational lipstick in the color rose rush 735. This is a beautiful red color that compliments my skin complexion. It is not a bright red, but more of a subtle one, and so it is great for someone that wants to try a red lippie for the first time. This retails for $5.50, so I got it for about $4.00 less!
 
The last lipstick I got was the Covergirl colorlicious lipstick in the color temptress rose 405. This color is a very pretty rosy pink color that is great for the upcoming Spring season. I absolutely adore the way this looks, and it is great for anyone who loves their pinks! Again, I got this for around $1.50 and the actual retail price is $5.94, so it was a steal!
 
I recommend girls who are either trying to build their collection, such as I am, or even just a lippie lover to check out the target clearance section in stores! It is a great way to find these great products at bargain prices. The reason these were on clearance was because there was a bit of the product in the lid as if someone let it up all the way, however it was so little it did not hinder the product one bit.
 
I also love the idea of all the beauty boxes there are to offer, including the $5.00 Walmart box, and also the $7.00 Target box. They send full sized products as well as samples of others, and usually the products cost more overall than what you pay for the box so it is a great way to sample products you might not want to purchase in store.
 
Overall I am totally in love with all these lippies, and I am looking forward to going back for more(;
 
Also, you may ask why isn't the MAC lippie included? I am doing a separate blogpost on it- I just decided- to let you know a couple of things such as how I got it. More will be explained.
 
But thanks for reading, I promise I have a few more haul posts, then I will start back on other ideas soon!
