Make-up haul:

Over the weekend I avoided all that I wanted to do (clean my room, laundry, etc) On Friday I went out to Walmart and I looked around the make-up section trying to find a primer, which I did find.  I also found mascara, and two lip products, and concealer.  Then on Saturday I went to Target and found a lipstick from a brand I’ve never heard of, and two lip balms.  Then later that day I went to Ross and found two shirts and one scarf.  

I’m pretty sure this one is my favorite. I got it from Target and I was a little hesitant in buying it, because it was a little expensive ($10 not on sale) but I truly believe it’s worth it.  This lipstick is by Sonia Kashuk. It’s called Rosette, and it’s a beautiful pinkish berry.  (I’m not good at describing colors…)  I did find it kind of odd that it came with drug facts, but then I saw that it has sunscreen in it. (Which comes in handy I feel.) The reason why I picked this one as my favorite is because it’s such a smooth lipstick.  I really want to say it’s the smoothest I own.  It’s also the best smelling I own, it smells like sugar cookies.  I absolutely love it.  I will be going back to Target soon to buy more Sonia Kashuk products.  

This one was a close second.  It was my favorite of the weekend buy, until I tried out the Sonia Kashuk lipstick.  This Covergirl lipperfection gloss balm is my first lipstick that’s an actual stick.  In the store it was a toss-up between #235 and #250.  I went with #235 because it was more pink than red.   It’s amazingly soft and glossy.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the lipperfection because it is like a huge crayon, but it turns out I actually do like it.  I’m actually now thinking about all of the other crayon like lipsticks out there that I’ve been missing out on. 

This one I wasn’t sure if I was going to like, because I’m not a big fan of lip gloss, but once you get past the heaviness of lip gloss, it’s actually really nice.  Maybelline Color elixir in Captivating Carnation is perfect for when I want an easy swipe then go.  I love the packaging because it looks like a tube of lipstick, and it even confused my sister because she didn’t know what it was exactly.  And if you’ve been following me for a while, then you would know that Maybelline is my favorite brand.  It also has a very sweet smell.  

Burt’s Bees is the best lip balm I have ever used. I love that it’s 100% natural and you can never go wrong.  The dark blue one is Blueberry and Dark Chocolate, and the greenish blue one is Eucalyptus and Menthol.   The Blueberry and Dark Chocolate is for revitalizing your lips and the Eucalyptus and Menthol is for soothing your lips.  I love them both, and I suggest that you buy them both if you’re looking. 

The reason why I went shopping this weekend was because I was looking for a primer.  I did find myself a primer.  I was looking for one from Hard Candy, but it was either out of stock or my walmart doesn’t carry it.  So I went with the next best option, Rimmel London Fix and Perfect., and I’m glad that I did.  It’s an allover primer vs the just eyeshadow primer that I wanted, and it just gives me more options.  Fix and perfect is very smooth and creamy, and I have noticed a difference in my make-up besides just my eyeshadow not creasing.  I love it. 

Then right next to it, I noticed a concealer, and I decided to try it out.  The only thing I don’t like about it is it’s applicator.  But other than that the Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer and highlighter is perfection.  I’ve always had a hard time with concealer, because it looks like it matches and then when I get home, it doesn’t, but this one actually does.  I like that Rimmel London has really light products. They have the lightest foundation I have ever seen. 

When I go with mascara I usually go with Maybelline, but I branched out a little bit, and I went with Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black, and I’m glad that I did.  It’s a little clumpy but if you brush right through it with either a comb or another brand of mascara, it works great.  I like it a lot better than the mascara that I was using which was by Maybelline.  

I know I said this was a make-up haul, but I couldn’t help but not include theses shirts.  The first one is supposed to be a dress, but I’m not one to wear dresses.  So, I’ll either pair it with jeans or maybe some thick leggings.  The next one is a shirt that has an over shirt connected to it.  I don’t usually like shirts like these, but this one actually attracted my attention (I think it was the lacy detail at the top.)  The Tiger dress was $7.99 and the layered shirt was $9.99. 

Then this is my new scarf.  I really wanted a new scarf from Target but it was around $17 and that was a little expensive, so when I got to Ross and found this one, I was very excited.  It was $7.99.  So much cheaper.  I love it.  

I know this was a long one, but I got a lot of stuff over the weekend.  Thanks for reading this far, and tell me, which product is your favorite?
