LIFE AS I KNOW IT

Deck the Hauls: I am a very happy camper. :D

Hi guys! ♥ Hope you all had a great day/are having a great day! My mom let me go out and do my thing with her car after she got back from work (as long as I filled up her gas tank). But...before doing so, my Sephora package came! I was surprised since my Hauteloook and PLNDR UPS deliveries all came at night. But anyways, not complaining..^^

I'll get to my Sephora stuff after I show you guys what I got at Rite Aid! Just a quick fact, CVS has always been my "go-to" drug store since it's down the hill from my house and it's in the same plaza as my bank (CONVENIENCE!). But, after reading the deals on G's ♥ Nouveau Cheap, I had to stop by.

I technically only went for the EcoTools BOGO free brushes...but I walked out with all of this:
jordan cosmestics: 75% off everything!; eyeshadow palettes, & gliding liners
Wet'N'Wild: BOGO 50% off; Mega Last Lip Color
Rimmel: $1 coupon; Lasting Finish PRO nail polish
EcoTools: BOGO Free; Bamboo Powder Brush & 5 piece bamboo brush set

jordan cosmetics:
(sunset and earth tones = $1.37; greens and violets = $1.24)
My mom's birthday's coming up ♥ so I've been trying to think of stuff to get her. She's always asking me for eyeshadows if ever she sees me with new ones so, I figured these are perfect! I also ordered some stuff from He Qi Crystal Designs and HOPEFULLY everything will come by this week/next week.

'Gliding Liner' eye pencils: (Only 97 cents!)
L-R: Ice Breaker, Molten, Forest, Blackest Ice, and Scuba


'One Liners' eye liner: Coffeeline (This was 97 cents too!)

Wet 'n Wild:
BOGO 50% off - reg. $2.99
Mega Last Lip Colors! I actually saw these on one of my mutual follower's blog ♥ (Everyday Makeup) and I loved her review so when I looked at the WnW section, I had to get me some! All of the lighter pink colors were wiped out, so I settled for 904B Rose Bud and 912C In the Flesh. So excited to try these out! I'll post swatches next time. :]


Rimmel:
Ok, so I wasn't planning on getting any polishes but, I saw the $1 off coupon on the display and saw the little crown design on top...aigoo...I caved and picked one for myself.
350 - Violet Metal

See, isn't the crown cute??

EcoTools:
(set = $9.99, getting the reg. $7.99 powder brush free)
YES, the brushes that made me drive over to Rite Aid in the first place. I couldn't find the section at first (hence why I picked up so many other random things..lol) but when I did, there was only one 5 piece set left! That made my day. :D There were around 3-4 of the regular sized bamboo brushes, so I took one as my "free" brush. Everything else was wiped out. D:

I'm actually most excited about these brushes. I've read reviews on them and when this deal for BOGO free came out for this week, I had to jump at the offer. They're soo soft and cute. Can't wait to use them. :]


And onto my Sephora haul!:
My freebies: D&G fragrance sample "rose the one", Sephora's instant moisturizer, Phyto Paris Anti-Aging hair mask, and Too Faced "Primed and Poreless" Bronze Tint SPF 20
Urban Decay: Naked palette (!!) ♥♥
Smith's: Rosebud Salve

The Too Faced bronzer was a special freebie for Beauty Insiders on Sephora so, I figured I'd try it out since it hasn't been released in its full size yet. Excited for this. :]

My lips are super dry and chapped and I've read good reviews on the rosebud salve ($6) soo, I got this too (and since I needed $50 for free shipping..^^)

NAKED PALETTE! Super super psyched to start using this! I first saw it on Jen's "from head to toe" youtube channel and fell in love with it instantly. I then added my name to the emailing list on both UD and Sephora AND I even went to my local Sephora and left my name and phone number. Yes, I was a bit manic and impulsive...hehe. But yay! I finally have mine.

Such pretty neutrals! I think I'm good with the eye shadows for a very very VERY long time. :D


And last but not least, my FOTD. Since I only went to run errands...not really a FULL FOTD...but yeah. ^^ I'm really liking the WnW palette I got from Dinorah ♥. :D It suites my perfect everyday make-up. :D
And yes, I have a pimple. Ew. T_T

PHEW, that was long. Congrats if you got through reading all of that. heh heh.
Have you guys tried any of these products? How are you liking/not liking them?
I'd love to know. ♥

  13. @Deborah - Yes! Yes! Very good deals!! I couldn't believe it either when these jane items came out to only be around a $1 (or 97 cents!). Aw, really? That's weird. Hm, probably Sephora Canada carries stuff that Sephora USA doesn't? heh.

    @EveryDay Makeup blog - Hehe. You're welcome! I love reading your blog. Your EOTD's are super awesome. :D

    I think you should get a palette too. ;] It's a permanent item for Urban Decay, so you still have time to get it!!

    I'll be posting a review on these WnW lip colors in a little bit! Swatching didn't work out for me..but hopefully you can still see the colors in the pictures.

    @♥PopBlush♥ - Thank you, dear! <3 hehe, yes NAKED!!!

    @TaTa - Thank youu! Ah, NAKED seems to be kind of exclusive then.

    Ah SHINEe~ XD if I had to be pick, it'd be with Jonghyun or Onew. (I like Minho too though...kkk). How about you? They're actually quite young for me, but I guess that's ok. Noona status. :P

    OH YEAH! Sorry about that. =[ I had no idea until a few days ago, but this layout seems to work fine with the commenting. Thank you! <3

    @Yami - Thanks!! Ah, you do? Did you ever swatch it? I'll go check out your blog soon after this, It is cute!! Ah and yes, the NAKED palette. I haven't touched it yet...it looks soo pretty though. hehe.

    @♥ Pixie D ♥ - Yes! SUPER BIG! I need to contain myself more. lol. NAKED palette <3 and yes, the Rimmel polish. I'm very excited to use it. :]

    @for the love of beauty by lara - Thank you dear!! Yes, NAKED palette! Get one if you can. It'll always be around. :]

    Haha, that face. :3 I bet you pull it off better than I do. lol.

    @Kayvona B - Yes! I'm excited to try them (once I wash them). I have heard a lot of good things about them, and for the price...definitely can't beat that!

    @AnNeTtEe - HIIII! I love your blog and commenting. I don't think I'll ever get tired of reading. <3 (And I like your music playlist too. ^^)

    Will definitely post a review on the 97 cent liners + the Rimmel Polish!

    Ooh and yes, the rose salve is great so far. I'm glad I got it. :D

    @Kenzie - Oops, I totally missed that. haha. SUCH CUTE THINGS! *o*

    @Donna ♥ Baby - Yes! I scored some awesome deals. :D I've never heard of jane cosmetics (oops I put jordan in my post..lol) either, but I figured I'd give them a try since they were so cheap. :] Hehe, naked palette~! <3
