Drugstore Sightings!

Monday, February 25, 2013
It's been a while since I've ventured into my local Fred Meyer, but I was very impressed with my trip yesterday!

Revlon ColorStay liquid concealer and some new ColorBurst products (including the new shades of the Lip Butters for those of you who like them).

Current Cosmetic Crush! Benefit Velvet Eyeshadow in "Fawn Over Me"

Friday, February 22, 2013

This little lovely has been sitting in my collection collecting dust for a few months now. I have an embarrassing amount of eyeshadows so I really don't make "the rounds" through everything I own, and although I have used this one a few times in the past I can not believe that I've overlooked it for so long!

My 5 Favorite Pinky Nudes.

Friday, February 15, 2013
Yes, this post is me professing my love for 5 lip products that fall in to a color category, but it should honestly be named "The Post in Which I Flaunt More Limited Edition Products than Permanent. Yes, I Feel Like a Huge [insert obscenity of choice here], and I Am Very Sorry. Please Don't Stone Me".  Moving on...

When it comes to lipsticks or lip colors, I'm either wearing a nude lip or a vampy one. Pretty bi-polar with my preferences, huh? The nudes I prefer are more on the pinky side since I'm not a huge fan of the whole "corpse" look that can come as the result of a flesh toned nude. I do have a few other nudes that lean peach, flesh, or brown in my small army of lipsticks, but pinky nudes and myself get along the best, so come meet my dream team!

Weekly Wish List #2

Saturday, February 9, 2013
Here we are again! Another Sunday, another beginning of the week, and another blog post in which I fawn over products that I'm either too lazy to go out and buy or are just our of reach in terms of budget.

1. NYX Setting Spray, $8.

Partial LUSH Valentine's Day Haul! + a sneak peek at the LUSH Easter line! :D

Tuesday, February 5, 2013
I had the pleasure of being able to shop at my absolute FAVORITE LUSH shop (Bellevue Square LUSH) last weekend and of course I had to pick up a few of their Valentine's Day products.

It's a pretty modest haul, I'll admit... but in my defense the store was UBER busy that day and I had a grumpy 16 year old boy that was slightly reviled by the scent of the place so my stay was painfully short. I was probably in there for a grand total of 3 minutes, but I still managed to snag a The Ex-Factor bath ballistic, a From Dawn 'Til Dusk massage bar, and two Magic Mushroom bubble bars. I really wanted to pick up the rest of the line, but alas... perhaps at a later date. 

Weekly Wish List #1

Sunday, February 3, 2013
1. Urban Decay NAKED Basics Palette, $27

Yeah, yeah... I dedicated a post to this product pre-launch pretty much bashing this palette and Urban Decay for over playing the whole "NAKED" fad (which they totally are), but now that I've seen a ton of people use it, swatch it, or review it, I've had a change of heart... plus I've also become inexplicably attracted to mattes. Figures.

2. MAC Strawberry Malt Veronica Lipglass, $16.50

I need this for reasons... and reasons being that it is the most perfect strawberry red lipgloss EVAR and spring is rapidly approaching. I needs it. Go google a swatch of this. Do it. 

3. NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Powder, $34

All of the bloggers that have reviewed this have pretty much raved about this to the point where I kind of supderduper need it. Plus I'm rapidly running out of my Maybelline Dream Matte powder and I'm in serious need of a new one. 

4. LUSH Be Mine gift, $39.95

This gift is essentially a butt load of rose scented items, a sweet thing to go on your lips, and a massage bar. Uh... hello! This is essentially all of the things I love during the month of February! I must acquire this before it goes away! It has a small pot of Turkish Delight and Ro's Argan Body Conditioner, a small imprinted puck of the Willow Pattern soap, a tin of "The Kiss" lip balm, and a Tender is the Night soft centered massage bar. BE STILL MY BEATING HEART!

Beauty Purchases of January 2013

Friday, February 1, 2013
I purchased a landmark number of products last month. Anyone want to guess a number? $20 it's significantly lower than what you're imagining.

Here is a hint: It's more than 2, but less than 4. I'm even a bit baffled by my lack of usual product splurging! I can't really remember a time that I've bought so few items, but hey... if I really want to keep my makeup "collection" as condensed as possible after a loooooong journey of de-stashing (which you can follow here), sacrifices MUST be made, i.e. no more willy nilly product snatching.

Since this month has a very manageable number of purchases, why not do a little bulk review? Sounds fun, right?

Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in Bare Bones, Physicians Formula Conceal RX in Natural Light, and Rimmel Match Perfection 2-in-1 Concealer & Highlighter in Light

I'll admit, this is a pretty pedestrian "haul", but hey... at least I'm happy with 2/3rds of the purchases.
