China Glaze's "Sunset Sail"

I bought this nail polish a while back and I've worn it about two times. I absolutely love this color! I know I say this about every China Glaze polish, but this one is great. It is the "perfect" nude for my skin tone. Even with a darker skin tone, I think this color would look gorgeous on! This color was great with two coats and I did not use a top coat. There was minimal chipping until the end of the week! 

Product: China Glaze's "Sunset Sail"
Price: $4.99
Bottom Line: Buy It!

Tiny Ulta Haul

I went to Ulta recently and I was really trying not to buy A LOT of things (because I have too much makeup!). These five things added up to $9 and some change! I was so excited! First, I bought NYX liquid glitter liner. This was on sale for a little less than $3. Next, I bought two pearl loose shadows, also from NYX. These were $2.99 then buy one get one half off. I also bought a China Glaze polish, which is gorgeous! It was on sale for under $4. I know I'm late, but I also got an EOS lip balm! Let me just say, that this lives up to the hype! 

Just a tip- Ulta always has a printable $3.50 off $10 coupon on their website. I always make sure that I print it off and that's how I was able to keep all of this under $10! :)

Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara

Before Mascara

After Mascara

After Mascara
This mascara came in the Sephora Favorites mascara pack. When I first opened this mascara, it was very silky. It continued to amaze me when I applied it! It says it adds volume to your lashes and it does that, without the clumps! I'm really considering buying the full size version of this because it works so well for me.

How To: Use Lush's No Drought Dry Shampoo

I purchased this dry shampoo about a month ago and I'm just figuring out the best way for me to use it. The lady at Lush said to just flip open the cap and pour it in your hair. That didn't work for me AT ALL, so I decided to share how I've been using it and hopefully it is helpful! :) 
First, I take the cap and pour some of the dry shampoo into it. It is okay if you take too much out because you can just pour it back into it when you are done. 
Next, I take a powder brush. This is just a brush that I don't use because it isn't soft. I don't think it would ruin your good brushes if that is what you wanted to use. 
After I find a brush, I just dip it into the cap that we poured some dry shampoo into. I usually take about as much as this picture shows. 
Once you loaded up your brush, I just pat it onto my hair. Usually it takes about ten brush fulls to get my whole head covered. This is what it looks like when you apply it. There is a white cast in your hair, which you have to brush out. I usually wait a couple minutes before I end up brushing it out. 

So I hope you found this helpful and maybe you will be able to apply this dry shampoo better! :)

Walmart Haul: Maybelline Color Tattoo!

Wohoo! I finally found these! I went to Walgreens and they didn't have any, not even a display. I went to Walmart and I wasn't expecting to find these there, but they had all of the colors! I only picked up two to see how they worked. The colors are absolutely gorgeous! I bought Painted Purple and Tough as Taupe. From what I've seen so far, they are amazing and worth it. These were actually $5.87 at Walmart, which made them just as good of a deal if I would've bought them at Walgreens for buy one get one half off because they are $6.99 there.

 Next, I picked up these Equate facial cleansing towelettes. On the package it says that they are comparable to Pond's clean sweep. I'm just going to use these for removing my eye makeup. I'll see how they go and let you know how they are! :)

10-Pan Challenge

I found this tag on YouTube and I thought it was very fun and interesting! I love finishing up products so I can start using new ones, so I thought this tag was perfect for me!

Most of the things I want to use up are skin care because I recently discovered Lush. I want to use all of my current skin care items so I can begin to use Lush "full time"!

Here's the products I want to use up:

What are some products you want to use before you begin new ones?

China Glaze's "Sexy Silhouette"

Sexy Silhouette is a gorgeous pink color with purple undertones. I actually really like the formula of this polish. It is very thin, yet very pigmented. It took me two coats for opaque color. Not only that, but it dried very fast! I haven't had a problem with chipping and I've had this on for three days. The only problem that I have is fading at the tip of the nail, but that could be fixed with a top coat. So, if you are in need of a new pink polish, I would try this one out! 

Product: China Glaze's "Sexy Silhouette"
Price: $4.99
Bottom Line: Buy It!

Lush Fresh Face Mask Update!

Will Lush fresh face masks last over the expiration date? My answer, YES! I've had my BB Seaweed mask for over a month from the expiration date. I use it pretty much every week and I'm down to my last two masks from it. It smells the same that it did when I got it and it doesn't seem to have mold on it. I don't know how much longer it would last, since I'm using the last part of it this week. But, I would say as long as it still smells good and you don't notice any weird things growing out of it, you should be good to go! Let me know what your experience with the fresh face masks have been like!
