Humble Beauty #15

After not buying any beauty products in January, 
I did pick up a few items I have been in search of but all-in-all I've been reasonable...

Ordered the "limited edition" Maybelline Color Tattoo in "Sleek & Spice" 
{as Thrift Thick on youtube suggested!}

I've been searching high and low for this Loreal "Masked Affair" polish
and everywhere I go and see the display that color is the only one sold out! 
Thank goodness for Bianca my sister who scored it in Delaware! 
Can't wait to get it & use it!

 I've been battling severely dried hands these days, 
I have been trying the Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter and I like it even though I can't get the imagery of a pina colada when I use it...

I've also been trying this O'Keefe's "Working Hands" lotion for my cuticles and sides of my fingers that have been cracking & painful lately...
At first I really liked it and I thought was working well but it leaves a weird white cast on my nails and leaves your hands with like a weird tacky feeling, 
but I still think it helps heal the cracks that won't go away this time of the year.

I am so happy I picked up this Hard Candy Ombre Lipstick in "Practical" 
{as recommended by Tati on youtube}
I've been wearing it all the time! 
Also got the Hard Candy "Birthday Suit" palette- 
it is good but I think my Sonia Kashuk neutral palette is better.
Got a restock in the Softlips cubes from Wegmans: 
on sale for $1.99 and I had a $1 coupon = 99 cents! 
I love the sample I got so I am happy to have two more for a fraction of the cost!

I was pretty neutral on this month's ipsy bag
I do love the Model Co blush & my favorite item was the City Color "Creamy Lip Stain" in "Flirtini"
Still have to try the other items

Also I am in the process of trying Neutrogena c/o Influenster,
little weird and tingly but I am loving this stuff!
My skin looks and feels softer!

Also picked up two items from PinchMe
the coffee was good, I prefer expresso 
the body wash is nice too, will be a nice transition to spring!

I am also excited to be trying some Mary Kay products that were gifted to me by Lisa
So far loving the Apple Berry lip stick- warn here & CC cream!
Keep you posted!
Here are this month's empties: 
bath empties are pretty much the usuals: Dove soap / Crest 3D White toothpaste / Revlon buttercream in "Burgundy" / Yankee Candle "Christmas Cookie"

beauty: 100 % Pure body cream- smelled nice, not really a large enough sample to get a good feel for it... / FAB "Ultra Repair Cream"- this was good while it lasted / Smashbox- gel eyeliner- one of my first purchases at Sephora when I was in high school... passed its prime / Maybelline "Dream Liquid Mousse"- given to me by my sister- not really a fan / Versace- Bright Crystal Eau De Parfum- floral and pretty but probably not going to purchase / Clear Clinic spot treatment via ipsy- loved this stuff but got funky towards the end of putting the applicator back in... / Too Faced "Better Than Sex" mascara- LOVE this stuff! Using up others and then I will repurchase / Urban Decay "Anti Aging" primer- not my favorite but used it up!
I have to also include some "Shopping Cart Saturday" items since the 
Lauren Conrad Cinderella collection at Kohls includes these amazing tulle skirts!
Sold out for now- I am hoping they restock!

OOO it may be an amount thing! Yeah I use it at bed time and sometimes during the day if my hands crack from washing them at school
