Things I Bought This Past Week

I've been really good about budgeting and avoiding the sale papers, but I had a hard week and retail therapy is my favorite stress reliever (besides sleep). On my way home from school, I stopped by Marshall's just to see whats new. Low and behold, they've started carrying "the Balm" cosmetics. If you remember, I reviewed their nail polish here and I loved it, so I was anxious to try out some other products. I found the Black Tie Kit for $12.99, if bought individually the products would cost $115. I'd say that's a steal! In the kit, I got two Shady Lady eyeshadows (Caught in the Act Courtney and Shameless Shana), Overshadow mineral eyeshadow (No Money, No Honey), Bahama Mama bronzer, Cheater mascara, Balm Shelter tinted lip gloss (Pin Up Girl), and lastly Hot Ticket nail polish (Better Off Red). I am really impressed with my initial swatches of each product which I will detail in a later post. I recommend you getting off your tee-hiny and going to get this kit, its sooooo worth it.

Also in case you've been out of the makeup loop, Ulta is having a 40% off NYX cosmetic sale this week. AND to make the deal even sweeter their usual $3.50 off a purchase of $10 or more applies to the sale items. With that combination, if you're anything like me you'll leave with great deals and a lot of things you don't really need. NYX is a great brand for those just starting off in makeup. Its inexpensive but with quality products that have great pigments. Its also a nice brand to use when you want to try a new trend but aren't really sure about it. 

Here's what I bought: "Mood" lip gloss, Eyeshadow Base (white), Rouge Cream Blush (Boho Chic), Triple Eyeshadow (03- Nude, taupe, Dark Brown), Lipliner Pencil (Brown), and two Fabulous Lashes and glue sets (108 and 110). I will review and swatch these all in a separate post soon. Nothing on this list was more than $4.79 and with my coupon I spent $21.37 total (7.75% tax included).
