Girl’s Night & Haul

20130222-060624.jpg

So it’s been a crazy new year thus far and I haven’t had a chance to hang out with my buddy Lindsey so I invited her out tonight since I had 2 straight days off! Since Lindsey had to work I picked her up at work and we headed over to Elephant Bar. I’ve never been, but the menu looked decent. Lindsey had the Teriyaki Chicken and I had the Kona BBQ combo which had ribs and chicken. I have to say it was pretty delicious and very affordable. I was shocked when Lindsey said she’d never had Creme Brullee so we had to split one of those for dessert.

After dinner we went to Sunrise Mall, we always do the same thing but I always manage to get lost. We parked over by JC Penney’s because Sunrise doesn’t have an actual Sephora in the store so we had to settle for the one at JC Penney’s. We browsed for a bit and unfortunately the lady that helped us last time who was so awesome wasn’t working and we didn’t really get any help. I was going to try some foundations but the lack of service was a bit off putting so I just bought more of the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray. Lindsey purchased more mascara since that’s her favorite makeup item.

After that I had to stop at Bath & Body Works to pick up some of those little anti bacterial mini things for my brother. They were on sale 5 for $5, and I picked up one of the new Sweetheart Scents Sprays for $8 (Regular Price $12!). We had alot better service here from Chris and Dani. They’re definitely getting a survey from both Lindsey and I.

The last stop of the day was Victoria’s Secret. Now I rarely buy any clothes from Victoria’s Secret, if I do I get their pajamas or their sweaters but I do love their fragrances and I wanted to try some of their makeup. I was hoping they’d have some in their store and luckily they did. They were having a sale so I picked up a few of their makeup items to try, 2 of their body sprays, a setting spray and a little combo pack. Plus I received a trio of makeup bags for free!

Wet’n’Wild Mega Last Lipsticks

Swatches from left to right- Sugar Plum Fairy, Stoplight Red, Cherry Picking, Wine Room, Mocha-licious, and Cinnamon Spice

So I just found a CVS Drug Store that’s relatively close to my house and it had the best stocked makeup section I’ve seen! The majority of their items were well stocked and the displayed looked nice, and best of all- the products were not opened or destroyed. I don’t know about you, but when I shop at Walmart, Target or any of the other drug stores I’m always having to check the products I buy to make sure they’re not tampered with. Who’s gonna buy something that everyone has touched? I’m certainly not and its ridiculous that people do this. Anyways, I’m off topic.

So the day my mom and I went to this CVS I purchased a few items I’ve had my eye on and I found these lipsticks from Wet’n’Wild. They’re not new but they’re new to me because I’m just getting into the habit of using lip products beyond lip balms. I only purchased the shade Sugar Plum Fairy and I loved it. It was very pigmented with a more matte finish. And it looked good on me. Most importantly- the price. This awesome lipstick was only $1.99! I went back a couple of days later and bought 5 more, and with the buy one, get one 50% off, I saved more money. The Sugar Plum Fairy is still my favorite shade, the two on the right end were my least favorite but they’re still good. The odd thing I noticed was that one if the shades seemed a bit different than all the rest. The Stoplight Red shade seemed to have a glossier feel than the others. Maybe it’s just me.
