Hi guys! Ever since I organized all my makeup and invested in a vanity, I have been so happy and content with my makeup collection. I am able to see everything I have and everything is so easily accessible and handy, I have had zero interest in purchasing anything new. I know I don't have the biggest or greatest or fanciest collection out there, but I have all the things I really want, way more than I need, and I am just so happy with it. Over the past couple of months I've just picked up a handful of things, nothing major, and I thought I'd share them with you.
Maybelline Eyestudio Quads in Bare It All and Taupe Tease from the Dare To Go Nude limited edition Spring 2014 Collection
I am a sucker for Maybelline, it's by far my favorite brand at Walmart. And if you've ever used them, then I don't have to mention how great their Eyestudio Quads are. They are silky smooth and so beautiful. I have around 10 or so of these palettes and I love them all. The two that I picked up are both limited edition. They are out now so hurry and pick them up! I found mine at Rite Aid for $8 or $9 each.
I briefly mentioned this in my beach makeup post, the Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream. We just got back from a week at the beach, and this (along with my 50 SPF It Cosmetcs CC Cream) is all I wore. Two amazing items for tropical/hot climates where you want a little coverage but don't want to wear actual makeup. I got mine at Walmart for $19.
Boots Expert Instant Matte. If you follow my blog then you know I am constantly battling oily skin. I found this at Target for $5 and it works really nicely. Basically it's an unscented liquid that you apply in trouble spots and it absorbs any excess oil. Great for oily gals like myself!
And while we are on the subject of oily skin, two new products from Rimmel I spotted at the drugstore. I haven't tried them yet but am excited to do so. Anything with the word 'matte' in it, you know I'm all about it. I don't remember how much these were, but I know they wouldn't that expensive. On Walmart's website it says both of these products are available in store only.
A beautiful rose gold liner for your waterline, the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Pencil Liner in 230 - Highlighter. Great for brightening up any eye look. Found this at, where else, Walmart for $7.97 (yes, I bought two, lol).
And a random goodie totally non-beauty related, my new old-fashioned headboard lamp from my mama. She said this was the kind of lamps they used when she was a little girl. I hadn't ever seen anything like this, I totally love it! It has double hooks on the back of it that securely anchor it to any headboard and it has a gold pull chain to turn it off and on. I have touch lamps on either side of the bed on our nightstands, but we use this cute little thing more than those now. So sweet. And, I also want to mention another love in this pic. My new 100% silk pillow case. I found this at Amazon for $33 (including shipping, king size, standard is cheaper). I have had satin pillowcases in the past, and I guess I always associated the two as the same. Well, they're not. The silk is so luxe and glamorous. I totally love it. They have several colors available (mine is in Natural White) and it's really worth checking out. Silk pillowcases are supposed to be really nice for your skin and hair, as they don't soak up and strip all of your oils and moisturizers.
Alright guys, that just about does it. I highly encourage each of you to go shopping your stash instead of purchasing all the new latest and hottest products that are continually hitting the shelves. If you do I think you be surprised at how much stuff we accumulate and probably won't ever be able to use! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Muahhhh!
