Girl’s Day Out mini haul!

20130115-013910.jpg

Today was a day off and so I made plans with my friend Lindsey to have lunch and do a little shopping! First off I have a pic of my eye makeup today, it looks more blue in the photo but its actually purple. It’s so funny that purple is not actually my favorite color but I had purple eye makeup, purple nails and a purple shirt & hoodie on. My eye makeup was all from Urban Decay.

We started our day out with some Chinese food for lunch and then headed straight for the mall. We browsed around Macy’s for a bit and I was color matched at Clinique for the Stay-Matte foundation. I think I grabbed the wrong color when I purchased it and I was proven right. The girl at the counter gave me samples of both my shades. So I’m going to be returning the wrong shade when I get the chance. We then headed to See’s where we picked up some snacks, browsed in Bath & Body Works, and then into JC Penney’s where they had a Sephora. Lindsey received her birthday gift which unfortunately was just changed. Now they have a mascara set from Buxom for 2013. She was really hoping to get the Fresh mini lip set, but they had run out of those. They were also out of the Too Faced Lashgasm that she was hoping to pick up. Meanwhile I was color matched for the Urban Decay Naked Foundation and Pam- the consultant which helped me, told me I was wearing foundation which was a shade too dark! I guess I was over compensating for the redness in my skin my making everything dark! Shocker! Part of my problem as well was that I had been using foundation to cover up these red bumps that I had developed on my skin which were actually not there anymore. So she color matched me and sent me off with a sample of the Urban Decay foundation in 5.0, then I asked Pam to help Lindsey find a new lip gloss that would give her some color and plump up her lips. She eventually purchased one from Buxom after testing it out. She’s so shy about asking for samples. Considering they’re suppose to be helping, I gave her that little push. That’s why you go to Sephora instead of just buying things blindly at the drug store. I was a tad disappointed that they were out of the Urban Decay De-Slick setting spray, but I ended up purchasing a mini from Makeup Forever.

After leaving the mall we stopped by Ulta to see if they had anything interesting. I purchased a makeup palette on clearance from the Ulta line. She bought a mini palette from Nyx. After Ulta we were going to stop by Target but I got annoyed by the parking lot and we stopped by Walgreens instead where I bought 2 Jordana eye pencils.

Overall it was an exhausting but satisfying bout of retail therapy!

Wet’N’Wild $.69 Picks

20121106-012408.jpg

I had to stop into Walgreens after work one day and I happened to notice that they had some Wet’n’Wild products on sale, so I grabbed a few basics I needed and two lipsticks I wanted to try. I normally don’t wear lipstick, preferring Chapstick or lip gloss to lipstick. I just hate having to touch up makeup and I don’t want to spend too much money on a product I don’t use very often. So this was a way to give it a shot. I bought two lipsticks in the shades Cashmere & Java, an eyebrow/eyeliner pencil in Taupe, and 2 lip liners in Willow & Chestnut. Cashmere was a light brown color and Java was a rich, dark brown. I was very happy with the consistency, i didn’t try them with the lip liners so it was very slippery feeling. It probably would have been better with the lip liners. Unfortunately the colors did nothing for me, either being too dark or light. I may just have to give them away. The liners worked out much better for me, I will definitely get more use from them. All in all- the $.69 items were a great deal and I’ll be getting more liners if/when I go back to Walgreens.
