Drugstore Skincare Haul!

I stopped by Walmart today with my parents to buy grocerys and whatnot, but me being the makeup obsessive freak that I am had to check out the makeup section. I didn't buy any makeup... (I had like four makeup products in my hand but told myself I didn't need it right now. Yay, be proud!) but I did pick up a couple of new skincare products! I've really been into skincare lately, so I might be doing a Skincare Routine soon! I feel like skincare comes BEFORE makeup.

So on my lovely trip to Walmart today, I picked up the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads! I wasn't expecting to get this (I wasn't expecting to get anything), but I saw it and it looked nice and I remembered hearing Macbarbie07 talk about it in one of her favorite videos! I used it a few minutes ago and I really like it, I have extremely dry skin and I feel like this moisturizes and exfoliates really well! They're basically pads with two sides, a cleansing side (which you use first) and a exfoliating side. It lathers like crazy which great, I think. I'll be doing a review once I use it more!

It has 28 pads, and I got it for $6.47 at Walmart!

The next thing I ended up getting is the Freeman Facial Peel-Off Mask (Cucumber) I also used this tonight and I don't really know how I feel about this. I have dry skin and I feel like this didn't help with that... I'm not sure yet! My stepdad who has oily skin also used it (LOL) and it worked AMAZING on him, it made his skin really soft and it whitened it a bit as well. I'll do a review once I figure out my thoughts towards it!
The mask comes with 6 fl. oz. and it costs $2.97 I believe!

So that is all I got at the all mighty Walmart. Again, I'll be reviewing both products soon! Have you tried any of these products? Do you like them? Let me know! xx

MAC Viva Glam Gaga Dupe!

I am super thrilled to show you all a dupe I found! I was looking at my collection (which I might do a video on soon!) trying to see what I can review or talk about since I knew for sure I wanted to do a post today. I took out a Rimmel London lipstick in Pink Champagne/ Pink Blush (They've changed the name, but I promise it's the same color!) and realized it looked similar to the lipstick I had on which was Viva Glam Gaga. I know a lot of you didn't get the chance to get it, and I've seen prices on eBay to be over $100 which is CRAZY for a lipstick! 

I bought Viva Glam Gaga when it first came out in February of 2010, it was my first purchase from MAC and I was ecstatic! It's a gorgeous bright blue pink shade. I honestly haven't seen great dupes out there. This one is probably the best dupe I've come across (if you know any dupes for this lipstick, please let me know!) 

I bought the Rimmel London lipstick almost a month ago during the CVS 50-75% off sale for $1.78 cents! I'm not quite sure if the sale is still going on but you can always check G.'s blog for more updates on that! She also shares all the great deals and sale out there, so make sure to follow her if you haven't already! $1.78 is an awesome deal for any lipstick really! 

As you can see the colors are VERY VERY similar! The Rimmel lipstick is on the top and the Gaga is on the bottom. I was really shocked to see how similar these colors are. They're not exact dupes; I say the Viva Glam Gaga is a little bit more blue toned and a little less bright than the Rimmel lipstick. Overall both colors are gorgeous and I'd definitely recommend the Rimmel London lipstick if you're looking for Viva  Glam Gaga and is having bad luck! Do you think they look similar? Did you get a chance to pick up Viva Glam Gaga? Let me know! xx

... I don't even know how to explain myself. I haven't made a post in almost three months! I can't even say I've been busy, because I haven't been. I have been semi-busy with school, family and friends, etc. but that is no excuse to not make a post in THREE MONTHS. I am back, and I'll be making a whole bunch of posts for you guys! Also, I make A TON of posts on my luuux which you can go to my page here! I've been on luuux non stop for a few months now, so if I don't make a post here you can always go to my luuux  page and see if I've made a post!

If you have any requests for me to do, PLEASE let me know! I'm pretty much brain dead which is probably the main reason I left blogger for a while! xx

Monday Night Dinner

I've never done a food post on my blog, other than the picture of funnel cake from my trip to Fair Park. Today was a busy day, I woke up at ten in the morning (which for me if I'm not going to school is way too early), I ate breakfast at my cousins place while watching The Devil Wears Prada, which is an excellent film. Then we went to the mall right after the movie, we stopped by Sears, Macy's, Sephora, JcPenneys, MAC, Forever 21.. SO many stores! Then we had to take care of my cousins cousin, he was so cute by the way. He was a couple of months old! One of the cutest baby's ever! Then I went to get my hair done and then I finally ate. My father invited me out to dinner at La Madeline. It's a very nice restaurant. Not expensive either. We ordered the same things and the total was around $32! The meal in the center was disgusting. I hate broccoli. Broccoli pretty much ruined the whole meal. I stuffed myself with the Potato soup (which is AMAZING, you must try it) and a bunch of bread with jam. The hot chocolate was amazing as well. Next time, I'll remember to not order that. I honestly forgot the name. My Monday was pretty exciting, my life is very boring so today was a change for me. Hopefully there are more days like these. Thanks for reading loves! xo

Haul: Walgreens and Dollar Tree + Update!

So before I go ahead and get right into the haul I want to apologize for not making a post practically all month. I can't say I've been busy because I haven't. I've just been using other websites and just kept procrastinating about making a post on my blog! The procrastination ends now. I'm hoping to be back for good- not being back for a month then not making a post for two months, no. I'm going to start taking my blog seriously. I love blogging and this is my only way to blog at the moment. I love you all! x

Now that my little update is done, I'll be doing a really quick haul. I went to Walgreens and Dollar tree today and picked up a couple of goodies I though I'd share with you all! I have a really good "dupe" for something in this haul as well! So keep reading if you want to save up to $84 dollars (:

Alright, so the first picture is everything I got from Walgreens and Dollar Tree. The second and third picture are the things I got from Walgreens. I only got four things. Cotton balls, two Sinful Colors Proffesional nail polishes, and a LE WNW Color Icon palette.
The first nail polish is a very pretty silver glitter polish called "Queen of Beauty" and the second and last nail polish I got is a beautiful silver metallic color called "Out of this World". I got both of these colors to wear on Thanksgiving, which in the United States is this Thursday (I have the whole week off! Yay!) Then I got cotton balls, which is boring. Just jumbo generic cotton balls to remove nail polish. The last thing I bought was the new WNW Color Icon Palette in Sugar Plum Fairy. I saw Stephanie's post (blog linked here) on some WNW palettes she picked up and I thought this was one was gorgeous. Lately, I've really been loving purple eye shadow so this is perfect. If you want swatches, I'll do a review once I start using it!

Now the Dollar Tree part. If you don't already know Dollar Tree is probably the only dollar store where everything is $1. Everything, nothing is $5, $4, $3, $2, or even $1.09. Everything is $1 or less! I love it, I spent $20.24 in total (but some things were for my mom and I got a bunch of snacks that I didn't include here) so I'm only showing beauty related things :P
So the first thing I got was a pack of 6 mini packs of tissue so I can take it to school now that I have a really bad cold! Then, I got a pack of makeup remover wipes. I really like the Target brand Up & Up ones but I saw these so I thought why not try it for a buck? I haven't tried it quite yet, but when I do I will be doing a review! Then I got a little loofah for you know, showers haha. I also got some nail polish remover since I've been really into nail polish and I'm running low on the one I'm using now! Now for the I guess you would call it dupe. The Daisy by Marc Jacobs dupe. The brand is called Jean Phillippe Paris. I'm sure you've seen these generic perfumes at dollar stores before, I know I have. I saw it and I was like "Oh! I love Daisy!" So I smelled it and I swear it smells EXACTLY the same! It's ONLY one dollar. If you like Daisy I reccomend this! Even though I already own Daisy by Marc Jacobs I thought either I can give it to a friend or keep it in my purse for touch ups! Then I got the generic version of Anais Anais by Cacharel. My mom used to use this ALL THE TIME when I was around three and four years old, I even remember spraying it in my eyes because I was curious.. Oh how stupid I was. It smells nice and floral so I had to get it!

I hope you guys enjoyed this haul, if you want a review or comparison of anything just let me know in a comment! Thanks for reading lovelies! xo

Transdesign Nail Polish Haul! OPI + China Glaze

(from l-r: china glaze for audrey, opi got a date to-knight, opi done out in deco, opi tickle my france-y, opi over the taupe, opi you don't know jacques, opi lincoln park after dark, opi my private jet)
Last monday I ordered from Transdesign and bought 8 nail polishes, shipping was EXPENSIVE. It was $20 to ship 8 nail polishes! I ended up spending a little over $60! That's crazy, but hey, I did it. I am very glad I did. The colors are all so gorgeous! I'm currently wearing "My Private Jet" which I painted two days ago and there has been NO chipping! Which for me, is crazy. I do a lot with my nails, including biting and they usually chip in like the first hour. Oh yeah, and the main reason I even bought My Private Jet because it is Kim Kardashian's favorite nail polish color.. (:

As you can see the color is absolutely gorgeous! I am obsessed with looking at my nails now (I know, conceited) What do you think!?

What are your favorite nail polishes? Do you like OPI? Have you tried OPI?
