Sunday Shopping

I FINALLY found a marble case for my iPhone 6S+! 
It is so hard to find cases for this phone,
this one from Ankit is perfect & arrived so quickly!

I also love this Clear Black Cow Print case!
might have to be next!

My new Firmoo glasses from the buy-one-get one came in as you may have seen in my blog anniversary photos from Friday! {& blogged last Sunday Shopping}
I love them!

Humble Beauty Opinion #26!

This was a great month for beauty products! 

Lets start with this quote my cousin sent me on instagram,
this is so true! 
But I want to be the grandma with winged eyeliner and a sleeve ;) 

I also placed a Colourpop order!
I got the "porter" shadow from the new Kathleen Lights "Where the Night Is" quad,
& a lilac highlighter called "Hippo"
LOVE both!

Speaking of different color of highlighters,
when I saw that coffeebreakwithdani posted about these Love Luxe Beauty highlighters
+ a coupon code, I decided I needed to try other highlighter colors!

Especially the DayDream blue one, I have been wearing it everyday since I got it
& will need to order a back up for sure!


 I have also been working on my Z-Palettes.
This leopard one is full of samples,
a palette that was a gift from my sister-in-law that was broken so I moved the shadows

My Sephora one is full of Makeup Geek, some BH Cosmetics, my new Love Luxe Beauty highlighters, Benefit Hoola Bronzer & Benefit shadows, the Balm "Hot Mama" sample,
and some Physicians Formula matte eyeshadows

I recently purchased the baby Z-palette from Sephora for like $10 and it is awesome!
I have been using it for traveling and it is perfect!
I just throw in my favorite items and it saves space and time!

I picked up one of these Loreal Colour Riche Shadows in "Green Promenade",
I thought these would be more pigmented and easier to apply,
I still have to work with it some more though.

I finally found and picked up the Coty Airspun Loose Powder in "Naturally Neutral" at Walmart,
I am loving it as a powder after my foundation!
{glasses- BonLook x A Beautiful Mess}

I finally picked up the Kat Von D "Lolita Lip Duo" that I wanted at Christmas time,
I got it on PoshMark and with credits I only had to pay like $5!

From CVS I picked up with MUA Crease Brush for a more precise application, CoverGirl "50" Star Wars lipstick, & Garnier Olia haircolor in "Dark Intense Auburn" {this is so nice!}

I love this CoverGirl Star Wars lipstick in "50" it is like a dark purple/blue {worn here}
It is a unique color to my collection!

I checked out the Hello Kitty x OPI collection when it came out and couldn't decide if I needed any of them, but I realized that I don't have a black polish!
So I got the shade ""
and since watching some YouTube reviews, I think I might need to pick up a few more...

What really made this month of beauty is this month's Ipsy,
I mean THAT BAG!
I also love the Hikari eyeshadow, but the bag made it AWESOME.

I have also been curating a beauty wish list this month {naturally}
1. Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette- this is so cute, I will have to swatch it but it looks like it is up my ally! Not sure when it comes out yet though, sometime Summer 2016 according to allure
I love the Chocolate Bon Bon palette too!
2. Another adorable Too Faced pallete- Peanut Butter and Jelly Eye Shadow Collection + yes it smells like PP&J! Available 2/28 {on Ulta}, looks like a neutral palette with wearable shades and a few pops! 
3. I want to try these Catrice shadows from Ulta, they look so pigmented and nice metallic shades! 
& less than $5
4. Too Faced La Creme lipstick in "Unicorn Tears" an iridescent shimmer color. How good would this be with my "DayDream" highlighter from Love Luxe Beauty?! Or too much iridescent blue shimmer? I think not. 
5. I love everything that Kathleen Lights comes out with so I think I need this liquid lipstick in "Lumiere 2" from Colourpop!
6. I NEED to find these NYX Lip Lingerie liquid lipsticks, I can't decide on shades, they all look so pretty, I definitely need the "exotic" one!

 bath: Dr. Teals Pure Epsom Salt in Eucalyptus & Spearmint- this stuff smells so good, makes for a great bath! / Loreal Studio "Out of Bed"- I have had this stuff for years finally used it up and now I miss it! / Garner Olia in "Dark Intense Auburn"- such a good hair color, leave hair soft and healthy feeling / Neutrogena "Healthy Skin Booster"- I like this cleanser, it does a good job taking off my makeup / Dr. Bronner's "Pure Castile Bar Soap" in Peppermint- we got this from Trader Joe's and it is SO GOOD! I love the liquid form to clean my makeup brushes and this is refreshing in the shower! / Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter- another goodie from Trader Joe's love this stuff! / Pure Silk "Raspberry Mist" shaving gel- I haven't used a shaving cream in a long time, this was a sample from the Walmart beauty box I believe, it was nice but I don't think I will purchase / SkinINC Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask- not sure about the hydrating part, but it was okay / Biore "Ultra Nose Strip"- I found these deep in my collection, they are fun but not sure they really work that well and can see how they can be not good for your skin / St. Ives Fresh Skin "Apricot Scrub"- this is my all time favorite face scrub- need more ASAP! /  Sea Breeze Sensitive Skin Astringent- I love this stuff use it daily & have a new one already / White Barn Bath & Body Works "White Barn Christmas 2010"- I ordered more on Ebay since they are from 6 years ago, this is my favorite Christmas scent / Rustic Lakehouse candle from Walmart- for under $5 these are awesome! Got to get more! / (Malin + Goetz) Vitamin b5 body moisturizer x2- of all the Malin + Goetz products I've tried these are my least favorite, I just don't think they moisturize for long periods of time

beauty: Secret "pH balanced Powder Fresh" deodorant- this is a good basic deodorant, nothing too special / Secret "Clinical Strength Completely Clean"- I liked this travel size but still a basic deodorant / luminessence "Pumpkin Pie" candle- from the Dollar Tree, I like these cheap candles! / Pacifica lipstick from last month's Ipsy- this BROKE after two days of using it / Elizabeth Mott "You're So Fine" glitter eyeliner from Ipsy, I loved this last year for the holidays but it is all dried up now / Jadience "Vitality Anti-Aging Serum"- this was a decent face oil but the packaging was so annoying and would spray all over the place / Loreal "Revitalift" sample- I liked this stuff not sure if it works but it was nice to try / Marc Anthony "Oil of Morocco" hairspray- I feel like this lasted for ever, it was okay, nothing too special- I love the Marc Anthony sea spray a lot though! / Pur-lisse "hydra balance moisturizer"- this is a nice face moisturizer also from Ipsy, my sister loved it too! / Mitchell and Peach "English Leaf" body cream- from this month's Ipsy- not sure it is that great at moisturizing but it smells nice and I used it up after two showers / e.l.f. "Makeup Mist & Set"- this bottle sucks, I loved it unto the Urban Decay setting spray bottle to make it usable, its okay, not sure it does anything, not going to get it again / Amazing Cosmetics Concealer Sephora Sample- WOAH this stuff is pigmented! I used it as foundation honestly, this is a FULL coverage concealer! / Maybelline Eraser Dark Circles in "light"- LOVE this stuff, will repurchase it is great for everyday! / Lucky Brand "Lucky You" perfume- my all time favorite scent, have a larger bottle ready to go! / Taylor Swift "Wonderstruck" sample- enjoyed this, not sure I would purchase it though / "Clean" perfume sample from Sephora, I am not sure why people seem to be obsessed with this scent, it was okay, happy is it used up though.
