Makeup Haul

So, my daughters birthday was on friday she turned 5 years old and my fiance got paid on that day so we left her with her grandmother and went out and did our birthday shopping for her. And while i was out I picked up a few things for myself. This is the most makeup I have ever bought at one time, I know it's a little sad, but usually I just pick up one or two things at a time. Anyways, I wanted to share what I picked up so here goes.
I went to my local mall first, which is really small, and picked up a few nyx products at the only place that sells it in my valley. I picked up a blush in the color peach, an eye shadow trio with the colors highlight, brown, and sued, a concealer in a jar in the color light, and a lip pencil in the color Dolly Pink. here are the pictures. Everything cost me about $25.
From there we went to wal-mart where I picked up only 1 thing. I got the Revlon Photo ready perfecting primer. This is the first face primer I have ever owned, so I will let you know what I think of it, but it was around $10.
After that I went to TJ Maxx where I picked up a few more things. I found some of The Balm Cosmetics on the clearance rack. I got the Black Tie Kit, which included Hot Mama, a nice peachy blush, 2 shady lady single shadows in the colors risque renee and just this once jamie, a Hot Ticket nail polish in the color boysenberry, an overshadow in the color no money no honey, a Balm Shelter lip gloss in the color all american girl, and Cheater mascara. All of this cost me $15. I was stoked. I also picked up a Shady lady palette for only $5, I think it had been dropped because one of the shadows was a little broken, but all in all in good condition. I was super happy with what I got from TJ Maxx, and I think I will be looking for makeup in there much more often now.
And Very last I purchased two lipsticks from the Dollar Tree from LA Colors for $1 each. The colors are Lilac Frost and Berry Red. They both look amazing on my skin tone and for $1 you just can't beat it.

So all in all when the day was over my daughter made out like a bandit, and so did I. And here is a picture of my total haul.

May MyGlam Bag

So my first impression of this myglam bag was that it smells really bad. lol. But that is about the only bad thing I can say about it. The bag is really cute, blue with pink lips on it. And I really enjoyed the products in this months bag. The first thing that came out of my bag were the "iss beauty nail blings" I was excited about these because I have just recently been more and more interested in nail products, I have not tried these yet, however I am pretty excited to. Next I pulled out the "Philosophy love sweet love perfume" I like trying out new perfumes, and I must say that this perfume smelled sooo good. very fruity flowery scent. very summery and nice, it is a little strong so a little bit will go a long way. Then I recieved a full size studio gear lipstick, in the color "teaberry". This isn't the perfect shade for summer in my opinion, but it does look really nice on my skin tone and I might get more use out of it in the fall and winter months. I do like the lipstick and the packaging also. Then last but not least were the 2 more brushes that came in this months bag, a concealer brush and a what looks to be a liner brush. I am not super fond of the concealer brush but the other one is perfect for lining under your eyes. So all in all I am very happy with this bag, I got to try new things and get a super cute bag to go with. Thank you MyGlam.

May Birchbox

So I recieved my birchbox for may maybe a week and a half ago and I was so disappointed with it. It is my very first birchbox ever, and i was expecting a little more. I recieved only sample sizes and samples of pretty crappy stuff. The things I recieved were; Arquiste perfume sample ( It smells like mens cologne), beauty blender clenser (I dont own a beauty blender), Color club nail polish in Disco Nap (this is actually the only product I like), Dr. Jart waterfuse BB cream (this sample was empty), a twistband headband (it's already fraying), and my extra was a birchbox notecard. Is it me, or could they have done way better than this, especially since one of my crappy samples was empty. I just expected a little more than this for $10. I think i may give it another month or two to see if it gets better, but if it doesn't I am definately not sticking around.

May Julep Maven Box

I recieved this months Julep Maven box and was very happy with what I recieved. The first thing that came out of the box was a makeup bag that they included in this months box. It's a very pretty black cloth bag with the Julep logo on it. Inside of the bag were my products, which included Sarah nail varnish, Fina nail varnish, and a roller bottle of the best pedi prep ever. Also in the box was a foot file for pedicures. I love The Fina Nail polish, and the sarah nail polish looks amazing in the bottle, but i definatley wouldn't pay $14 for it, I put it on my nails and it doesn't look nearly as pretty on my nails as it does in the bottle. You can Join Julep maven and pay only a penny for your first box, just use my referral code after you click the link:

About a month ago I purchased the Physicians Formula PH Matchmaker Powdered Blush from my local target store. It looked intruiging and there was a $3 off coupon on it, so I figured what the heck and purchased it.  I have used it regularly since purchasing it since I currently only own about 3 blushes. I got the formula in "natural". My first impression is that it's a really cute package, with a brush and mirror included. Also on the mirror is a light with a light switch. The Blush is a really nice color for my skin tone in my opinion, however I didn't see any change in the way it looks after 60 seconds, as is there claim. It didn't seem to change with the ph of my skin or light. I still really enjoy the product anyways. And I definately recommend it, it lasts for a good amount of time and looks very pretty and natural.
