To Faced Cyber Monday 2015 Mystery Grab Bag.

IMAG2273_1

 

Yup, I did it again this year. I mean after last year, I kinda had to didn’t I? I figured it could go one of two ways, I would absolutely love everything that was in it. Or hate it with a passion, not really an in between with this one at all.

I wasn’t all that worried, because generally speaking, Too Faced tends to be inclusive colour-wise, they tend to mostly swing cool toned, but usually darker skinned ladies and fair ladies are represented.

Now, while I didn’t love everything that was in the bag, I didn’t hate any of it either. It was more a case of most of those items not being things that I would pick for myself. This year the bag was advertised as having a value of $137, and costs $4 more than last year at $39. I was able to stack it with a 20% off coupon and got the mystery bag and one other product for a total of $47 with free shipping as the mystery bag always ships free.

When Something Seems To Works For Every Brown Girl…But You.

 

IMAG0108

Those are the times when you feel wholly inadequate and like something is just really very off about you, cause dang what’s your problem anyway? And then you remember that all your (brown) girlfriends used to rave about MAC too, and that ish wasn’t too hot for you either. Yeah, so we’re talking about Sacha Cosmetics today. This brand out of Trinidad seems to be on the lips and HG lists of every brown beauty guru. I had heard about them for so long that I decided to do a haul.

Holiday Sets 2015: Stila Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set.

IMAG0570

The second item that I got from the Stila holiday sets was this set of six mini liquid lipsticks. For some reason, even though these had always been a must try for me, I continually overlooked them. Somewhere inside of my brain, I thought they weren’t a matte finish. Please don’t ask me where that idea got lodged, because I couldn’t tell you. In any case, even if I hadn’t gotten the other palette I was determined to get this just so that I could finally try it. There is also a smaller set of three that I think is $20 or $25 that I’ve only seen in store in Ulta, but I wanted more choices and figured this $39 set was a better choice for me.

Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro Palettes.

I’ve been doing a lot of high end hauling lately, and while it’s been fun discovering the benefits, differences and advantages of luxury products, I realise that not everyone can or is willing to hand over hundreds of dollars for just a few pieces. Trust me, I’m also a fan of getting a whole bunch of stuff for $80 versus just getting one thing. When my boxes arrive and I open them to a bunch of stuff, my happy place gets happier. So I decided to take it down a thousand and bring you guys some really awesome drugstore products that only really differ from higher end ones in the form of their price tags, starting with these.

Hello lovelies! Can I just tell you? I totally spaced on the last few posts. I’ve been so busy, that not only did I not remember to write post, I didn’t even remember what day it was so I couldn’t do a late night emergency post. And if you asked me what it was that made me so busy? Couldn’t tell you. In any case it’s a good thing that I couldn’t do an emergency post because what I have for you today is a bit much.

Zoeva Cosmetics Germany; Luxe Colour Blush & Luxe Cream Lipstick.

This is gonna be a simpler, shorter (I hope) post than the last, because I only have four items. Along with the palettes, I also got two blushes and two lipsticks. The last few items was a bit of a mixed bag. I liked or could work with some items, but was disappointed in others. Let’s start off with what I liked better.

Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Colour Collection.

Good morning beauties! And I do mean morning, since I’m writing this the day of at about 9:30am. I’m finally (mostly) able to sit up now, although not for very long stretches. Can I just tell you though? I never realised just how many things you use your back for till this little incident. I’m for real about to get into the gym with the quickness to do some back training exercises because the last week has been frustratingly frustrating.

Anywhoo, I have such a pile of stuff to review for you guys, and I feel like I’ve reached a huge saturation point with my make up, so much so that I need to get rid of most of it, and pare it down to the things that I truly love. That’s gonna be hard for me since I can’t stand to part with my crap. But that’s a story for another day, on to the review.
