Mini Drugstore Lippie Haul + Swatches!!!

Hey Guys!
I picked up a few lipsticks these past couple of weeks. Two from Milani and two from Revlon.

Milani Flamingo Pose | Milani Teddy Bare | Revlon Raspberry Bite | Revlon Cherries In The Snow

Flamingo Pose

Teddy Bare

Raspberry Bite

Cherries In The Snow

The Milani lipsticks have a very loud watermelon scent and it's apparent as you're applying, but it disappears. They are somewhat less moisturizing than I expected, but if you put on a lipbalm before, you'll be fine. They're super opaque.

The Revlon lipsticks are much creamier in texture and opaque as always. I've been wanting Cherries In The Snow forever! It's a really pretty color. [Revlon Cosmetics & Beauty Tools are 40% off this week at Rite Aid!!] 

*NOTE* All of them except Teddy Bare stain.

Have you hauled anything recently?

Valentine's NOTW

Hey Guys!!
So, I know I'm late with all of the Valentine's Day posts but I've been sickly these past couple of days and I'm trying to play catch up! Be sure to check a few posts back to see my Valentine's Day makeup look! I went pretty simple, I just used Revlon ColorStay nail polish in Passionate Pink and for an accent nail I used OPI's Meep Meep Meep.

Did you do a specific manicure for Valentine's Day?

2013 Valentine's Day FOTD

Hey Guys!
I only got a couple semi-good pictures of my makeup I wore for Valentine's Day. I didn't really go anywhere, it was a chill day since the Mister had to work :(

Unfortunately I don't remember what I used, I'll do better next time!

I wore my Betsey Johnson red heart stud earrings :)

What'd you do on Valentine's Day?

Did You Know I'm On Youtube?!

Hey Guys!
I just wanted to pop on here and let you know that I have two awesome giveaways happening on my YT channel right now! It's super easy to enter, I just ask that you be a subscriber of mine! You can win either a Coach wristlet [and?!/]or the February PopSugar box!! Check out the videos below :)


TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette + Swatches

Hey Guys!
A few weeks back, Hautelook was having a sale on TheBalm. One of the items I picked up was the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette which is a palette that consists of 9 matte shadows all of them are named a different "Matt".

These are just neutrals that I think would be great to add to any collection. There are a mixture of warm and cool undertoned shadows. The only shadow I had a problem swatching was Matt Lombardi. It was somewhat less pigmented than the others. Other than that one, the shadows are incredibly smooth and soft. This palette retails for $42 on their site, but I'd wait for it to go on sale on Hautelook again!

Do you have this palette? Is it something that looks interesting to you?

Mini MAC Archie's Girls Collection Haul + Swatches!

Hey Guys!!

Tomorrow [Thursday, February 7th] MAC is releasing their Archie's Girls Collection in US stores, but [like usual] they released the collection online a few days earlier! I have always been an Archie's Comics fan. I used to love getting them from the grocery store when I was younger.

I only picked up a few things because not much appealed to me. This was a huge collection and thankfully I didn't want more!

How cute is the packaging?! 

Let me say how happy I was that these were actual boxes and not just sleeves on the regular boxes like the past LE collections have been. I also love the white color. Some say the packaging is cheesy or corny, but it's based off of a comic book, so what do you expect?! Haha I think it's very well done.

I picked up four things, but I'm going to show you three because the fourth hasn't arrived yet.

I picked up the blush from Veronica's side:

Prom Princess is described as a mid-tone violet pink and it's a Satin. This is my first MAC blush and I love the texture and how well it blends out![$22 USD]

I picked up two lip glasses, one from each "side":


Kiss & Don't Tell is described as a bright coral.[$16.50USD]


Mall Madness is described as a mid-tone pink violet.[$16.50USD]

These are also my first ever MAC lip glasses[shocker!]. They are known to have a slightly stickier texture, but I realized that the formula helps it last longer on the lips. I got about four to five hours wear [with minimal drinking] from Mall Madness.

Well that's my haul! I hope this helped some of you with making choices for you list! 

Do you plan to pick something up from this collection?
