Hello All My Beauty Lovers,
I have an amazing deal that I need to let all my makeup lovers know about. I came across this deal today on QVC where you can get this whole set for only $59.94. That is an amazing deal especially for all of the products that you will receive. The kit includes:
- Three eyeliners in plum, bronze, and charcoal.
- Two Amazonian clay blushes.
- Two lipsurgence Lip Creme in Wonder and Rare.
- Two Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara.
- Lipsurgence Lipgloss in a soft raspberry shade.
- 2 eyeshadow pallettes
This deal is only available today (11/10/14) and the deal will expire at midnight So get this deal while you can. This would make an amazing Christmas gift as well. If you bought all of these items separately it would cost $287.00, and if you were to buy this kit at regular price it would be $72.50. But if you order it today you get it for $59.94. So if you love makeup or if you want to try Tarte then this is a must have kit. Especially when you consider that this is usually the price of one pallete or two blushes. Hopefully this was helpful.
Have you even wandered into Sephora and was just amazed by all of the different makeup they had available? Is your first instinct that you wish you could buy everything in the store, but that you couldn’t afford it all? Well I’m that girl. I have a serious makeup addiction. I have so much makeup that I barely even use it all so it ends up just sitting in my makeup cases going bad. Even though I know that I have so much I still can’t pass up a good makeup deal when I see one. If you want the makeup they sell at Sephora, but can’t afford it, then the next best place to go is Nordstrom Rack. They always have amazing brands like NYX, TooFaced, and Stila there. Those are the brands that I see most often, but if your lucky you could possibly find even better brands. It mainly depends on the store closest to you. A few weeks ago I was in Las Vegas and was out shopping. I saw a Nordstrom rack and you know I had to go there and good thing I did because I picked up this amazing steal. I got this TooFaced Bonjour soleil bronzer pallet for $16 when its regularly priced for $44. I know I probably didn’t need anymore bronzer, but how could you not pass up this deal.
So if you ever need any makeup and your on a budget. Head to your local Nordstrom Rack first to see what they have available before you go to Sephora. Thanks for reading.
Sorry I haven’t been posting as much as I would like, but this semester I started graduate school and it has been exhausting. This whole semester I’ve just been thinking everyday “WHY DID I DO THIS?”. I know that in the end having my master’s degree will be a great benefit for my career, but I have been going to school non-stop and I feel like i’m at the point where I’m just done and I want to work. There’s so much more to life than having to worry about taking tests and studying every single day. Before I use to think school was so important, but don’t get me wrong school is important, but if you already have a degree than you should be fine. Everyday I do homework hours at a time and I always think that there is so much more stuff that I could be doing with my time. Life is meant to be lived, its not meant to sit in a room with your face in a book. Not only is school exhausting, but its also so difficult too. I’m getting to the point where I feel hopeless and lost.
I know these aren’t usually the typically things I post about, but I wanted to take some time and just went out my stress. Does anyone out there going through the same thing that I am going through? If you are I would love to hear how you are getting through this. Well I would write more, but I have a group meeting for school. This group sucks BTW. LOL.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
Recently I received the deans list vox box from influenster. If you haven’t heard of Influenster it’s this great program where you get a box full of different products to try out for FREE!!! Ya for FREE!. Then all you have to do is review the products. In this current box I received air heads bites, sinful color nailpolish, covergirl foundation, softlips lipcube, playtex sport tampons, pentel erasable pens, and kiss eyelashes. I haven’t gotten to try all of the products yet. Only the airheads and the covergirl makeup. The airheads were pretty good. They come with all of the flavors even though I only Like 2 of them. Ive only worn the covergirl foundation for a few hours so I still have to test out if it’s long lasting. Overall this was a really Good box to receive.
Have you ever wanted to try the Ciate caviar nails trend, but never wanted to pay for it? Well I’m right there with you. I love all of the latest beauty trends, but they can get so expensive. Every time I go to Sephora, I always see the Ciate caviar nail packages and they always look so cute that I want to get. Until I look at the price. $30 for some nail polish and beads? Ya I don’t think so. I rather spend $30 on some good foundation. Well this weekend I was browsing at my local Burlington Coat Factory. Usually I never find anything good there because its all so cluttered and a part of me doesn’t want to waste time searching for something that I know I won’t find. Luckily when I was looking in their beauty section I came across a Ciate nail kit and it was only $10. $10!!! can you believe that? A good bottle of essie polish costs around $8 already so I figured it was a good deal and I couldn’t pass it up. So I bought the kit. It came with 4 cute nail polish colors and 4 bottles of beads that would match the polish and a little funnel to pour the excess beads into the bottle.
The polish colors that came in the kit weren’t that great. It has your standard white, pink, baby blue, and red. Being the nail polish love that I am, I already own these colors. But then again I wasn’t buying the kit for the polish, I was all in it for the beads. So of course after me buying this kit, I had to try it out on my nails. And to be honest. It looked great on my nails for about a day…….
The polish had a nice consistency to it, but you did have to do a couple of coats to get the color looking nice. And of course after my nails dried I have to put on my favorite seche vite top coat. The top coat made my nails look amazing. It gave my nails a gel/shellac manicure look. I don’t know what it is that I do in my everyday life, but the beads fell off so quick. I probably have random little beads around my house somewhere now. The instructions say for you to paint your nail and then pour the beads on so that it will stick and that worked and all, but it just didn’t last. I wasn’t sure if I should use a top-coat on the beads or not, so I didn’t. Maybe when I try it next time I will put a top-coat on and see how much longer the beads will last on my nails. All-in-all, there were some pros and cons to this product. The pros were that it was a good price and the colors were fairly decent. The cons are that the beads didn’t last on my nails that long, it can get messy because they do put glitter in with the beads. When I was pouring some beads onto my nail, a whole bunch of glitter came pouring out with hardly any beads. Luckily you really couldn’t tell the difference from the glitter to the beads.
Overall I’m glad I bought this product and gave it a try. However, I think next time I will try using a top coat or maybe even some gel to get the beads to stay longer because you have to admit my nails did look amazing for that one day. lol.
Recently a blogger that I follow posted an image of a badly done Photoshop image on Target’s website. They tried to create a “thigh gap” on the model. And for those of you who don’t know what that is, it is basically a gap in your thigh so that your thighs don’t touch. I thought that it was so crazy how big this tread is spreading. So I wanted to take some time to talk about body image. I, myself like many other girls in America have body issues. I am very short, which causes me to be a little bit bigger for my size. If I were a couple inches taller, than my body would actually be thinner. I struggle a lot with no only my weight, but my looks as well. I actually wouldn’t mind if my body looked better and my weight still stayed the same. I feel like I have done everything I could to get into shape. I would use to run 3 miles a day, I’ve tried juicing, cutting out junk, and exercising like crazy. I feel like non of that has worked. I’m going to Florida in a couple of months and my goal was to look great in a bikini, but I feel like my goal is lost and that I should give up.
Does anyone out there feel the same way as I do? That no matter what you do, nothing works? You see all these girls who have accomplished their weight loss goal and I feel like why isn’t it the same for me? What am I doing wrong?There are some days where I want to give up and get liposuction or try weight loss pills and then maybe I would see the results that I want. Unfortunately, lipo is super expensive $$$. I’ve heard a lot about body sculpting, but I am very skeptical about it and if it really does work. So if anyone out there has tried it I would love to hear your opinions on it and what your experience was like.
I still have 3 months until my trip so all I can do is exercise, eat better, and drink more water. For my whole life I’ve never been that pretty skinny girl. For most of my life I have always been the bigger than the rest of my friends and I have always hated that feeling. As i got older I started learning how to do my hair better and my makeup. That was the only thing that would actually give me confidence no matter what my size was. If I didn’t have makeup then I would feel lost. That’s why I want to shed the excess weight so that I can be toned. I have always dreamed of being a better me and now is the time for me to get serious.
Sorry if this post is a little long, but I want girls out there who read this blog to know that there are other girls out there who feel this way and that there not alone. I’m just an ordinary girl who at times feels lost in this world. Its hard to keep up with what society calls “perfect”, but as long as you do what makes you happy, then that’s all that matters.
Welcome to my page! I have always wanted to blog about fashion, makeup, and pretty much the daily life of a girl. Hopefully I can provide some good advice and insight on what I have been through in life. My goal is to at least blog once a week. So please keep checking back. xoxo
