Last weekend I went shopping with a friend of mine. I found a few goodies at Ulta, a few at CVS and a few at Marshall’s for a steal.
I got the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter and Too Faced Tutti Frutti Razzle Dazzle Berry palette at Ulta for a total of $22 for both (I used about $18 worth of points and a 20% coupon for non-prestige items).
At CVS I had $5 in ExtraBucks I used for the Elf Highlighter and a 40% off coupon I used for the Milani, so it ended up being about $6.
At Marshalls I got the ABH liquid lipstick in Rio for $6 and the ABH Blush trio for $9.99! I also got the other Makeup Revolution highlighter there for $3.99.
So far I’ve used the palette for about a week and LOVE it, it has the creamiest shadows and gives the prettiest berry looks! I’ve used the Vivid baked Revolution highlighter a few times and the triple baked once. I’ve used the blush about three times and enjoy it, even used the darker blush as a bronzer a few times and I’ve used the liquid lip once. I haven’t broken out the Elf or Milani yet. I am very pleased with my purchases. For a grand total of about $47.98 I am very pleased with my new goodies.
Until next time.
Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been MIA for a little bit, life’s been a bit crazy! Last weekend was my best friends bachelorette party in Chicago and next weekend is the wedding! Spare time has been scarce to say the least!
I did find the time last weekend to do a little shopping at the Victoria’s Secret sale! While we were on our trip I smelled a body spray one of the other girls had with her and knew I had to have it! That was Victoria’s Secret Bombshell.
Lucky for me, when we returned they were having a sale! I got two minis of bombshell (one not pictured) at $6 each. A mini of heavenly and a mini of crush and $6 each. A bombshell rollerball for $6. A water bottle that was filled with PINK fresh and clean body scrub, lotion, body spray (not pictured as it’s on my work desk) and lip balm all for $10.50!! Which is crazy, the bottles alone are usually $25!! I scooped that up real fast. I also got some super cute pink duo chrome slides that I’m obsessed with!
All together I spent $78 (so I got the pretty and useful free cooler bag tote; its black with gold script and in the trunk of my car). So I spent $78 for seven items (eight if you count my tote). Which is less than $11 an item if you count my water bottle gift set at one item. Overall, I’m super happy with my purchase. ☺️
As, I’m sure a lot of you know the VIB sale started last week and continues through Monday. Though I’ve been VIB/VIB Rouge for a while this is my first time shopping the sale. These are the things I picked up!
Viseart petit pro palette (pictured above); I wanted to try a handful of Viseart shadows without paying $80 so this is what I landed on. It’s a beautiful selection of dark/earthy mattes and shimmers. I’ll do a full review when I’ve been able to play with it for a while. For the longest time I wasn’t on board with this whole “omg warm tones” trend but now I’m finally getting into it so I thought this was a perfect little palette to pick up!
Becca Prismatic Amethyst: I’ve been debating this one for a while, as I already have rose quartz. With my birthstone being amethyst combined with the collector in me said I have to have this. It is a beautiful more subtle opalescent white highlight with a lavender shift and it is honestly perfect for my skin tone, so no love lost!
Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in the color sunset cove: This is a stunning holographic eye glitter that is wearable in the daytime. I already had molten midnight which makes a stunning smokey eye; but not something I could wear to work, whereas I can create a super fun look that’s office appropriate (well, at least in my office) with this! Lol.
Finally, I cashed in 100 points to try this YSL The Shock mascara. I’ll report back and perhaps even do a full review after I’ve tried this!
So, I didn’t pick up too much as 15% is honestly barely a discount unless you’re buying a lot/very pricey items, so I just picked up some things I was planning on getting anyway. Let me know what you picked up during the VIB sale in the comments!!
