Humble Beauty Opinion #7

Apparently I've been doing quite a lot of beauty shopping…
At Lord & Taylor, I finally scored the Dior Lip Glow that changes to the perfect pink 
& got a sample of a primer! 
I also found the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Apricot 

love this lipstick!

I also got a sample of the Bombshell in Bloom from Victoria's Secret, 
I am loving it & will probably get a bottle!
At Sephora I got the Too Faced "Better Than Sex Amazing Eye Set" 
& let me tell you, it lives up to it's name!
It is definitely one of my favorite mascaras I have used & I was surprised I like the eyeliner as much as I do! For like $12 it was a great sample! Will definitely buy a full size when this one is done 

I was also so excited to score this free sample of the new Urban Decay "Perversion" mascara,
I like it, not as much as the Too Faced one but it does a nice job of separating the lashes, 
in combination they are perfect!  

I had my first experience at Lush,
I have always wanted to go in but I found it a little overwhelming and with too much stuff,
But I was taken in by Joan in the Quakerbridge Mall, NJ Lush and showed the whole store!
I took home a toner because I haven't been using one, a perfume in the vanilla scent, and Happy Hippy body wash, Love Lettuce face mask, & lots of samples. 
I am LOVING the "Hello Gorgeous" face lotion, 
I know the bottle is expensive but it is on my wish list!
I also went on a hunt for Kate Spade Twirl because it is being discontinued & finally found it at Kohl's,
along with this super cute "Smoke Balm" mini palette from the Balm,
I love the dark green shadow!
I also stopped by Rite Aid to re-dye my hair & pick up some Jessie's Girl pigments that I have heard good things about, I also picked up the Rimmel lip liner in "East End Snob" both recommended by CoffeeBreakwithDani on youtube 

Which lead to a pampering night =)

I also went to CVS and picked up TONS of lip products that have been on my wish list for quite some time,

I am obsessed with these Revlon lip stains! Happy to add these 4 to my collection, 

Also got two Rimmel lip products in "Let's Get Naked" and one of the Kate Spade lips in #17,
I am LOVING both of these for a pink/nude color!

I also got two Wet & Wild Lip sticks from the Fergie collection in "V.I. Pink" & "Fuchsianista",
excited to try these!

One of my favorite lip products that I recently tried is this NYC duo lipstick in "The Red Hots" 
definitely a perfect red for me and I have already purchased one for my sister & a backup, 
at $1 I couldn't resist!

I also got the "Berry Amore" Milani Baked Blush! 

I was so excited to finally try these Sally Hansen Color Foil Polishes, 
I love metallic nails and these seem to have a lot of promise,
the "Sterling Silver" will be tomorrow's Mani Monday! 
The red, white and blue will be perfect for the 4th of July!

 I have also heard amazing things about the Sally Beauty Supply eye shadows from Emily Noel's Beauty Broadcast on youtube, you click them together to build a palette,

I am loving the pink shades & the Cinnamon red!
They are my favorite eye shadows at the moment!

I love blue shadows too, I have been eying this NYX blue from shopamylynn on instagram,
& I love mini Coastal Sense shadows!
I was excited to see that this month's ipsy had a Rebecca Minkoff pouch!
Love the NYX gloss & the beach spray may be the favorite I have tried!
The blue eyeliner is interesting and was perfect for an 'Merica party & will be for the 4th of July,

My second PinchMe came in and I love the Dove shampoo, I will be purchasing them!
Barry ate the dog treat in a minute, & the nail polish is pretty too!

Also ordered my 3rd PinchMe!

Next new samples are released Tuesday July 15th! 

I am not the only one with new beauty favorites, 
the hubby ordered the sample set from DreamBeard on etsy & has been trying out different oils!
Happy Humble Beauty Opinion #7!

Last day of school today!

What I Wore: glasses- BonLook, lips- Be a Bombshell in "Hot Damn", necklace- handmade gift from student, top- Old Navy, skirt & flats- thirfted, bag- 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target  

I love this bracelet that the hubby brought home from China Town in Philly,
too bad I lost it before I got to fix it =( 
But he got me a new one that was not broken, crisis adverted! 

I love today's mani too!
Blue- Sinful Color in "Tidal Wave" ℅  PinchMe / Sparkle- Essie "On a Silver Platter"

convinced the hubby to take me to the AVA movie awards at school!
It is so fun to see my students excel outside the classroom!

Had to get one of these jersey tanks from school before Summer, 
so "on trend" 

I also received the cutest gift from one of my students who has been tutoring for me all year!

It is so perfect in my living room! 
I have not been able to find anything to put on the coffee table & this bowl is too perfect!
Even grumpy Maggie approves...

Happy Summer!
