I noticed a new Holiday 2012 display at my CVS. “Lo an behold…” there is the the I Heart Matte pallet with a new name!
I purchased was this LIMITED EDITION Wet N Wild “Drinking a Glass of Shine” (I Heart Matte) Eyeshadow pallet. [I also got “Sparkle Til Morning” (with Urban Decay Naked Pallet Dupes) ] I picked this pallet because of these gorgeous matte colors! (Not to mention it’s the go to pallet for beauty You-tubers.) Beautiful bold colors with a relatively cheap price tag.
So you might be thinking…that was for the holiday season in 2012. Where can I get it?!?! I know that eBay, Amazon and the alike will have them (for marked up prices). Just be on the look out for them in the future. These totally caught me off guard. Glad I was able to snag a pallet before they were all gone. (One happy beauty blogger here!)
Stopping by the Chanel counter at my “local” Saks (2 makeup products and $75 later) the sales lady told me the new mascara from Chanel (Le Volume De Chanel Mascara). She gave me a deluxe sample to try out. I thought, “Cool.” I never had any of their mascaras and could not wait to try. And since it was FREE, even better.
I get home and try it out. The brush was nice looking. The formula was thick. BUT when I applied it it was all down hill for me. Why? My lashes are curly and are a beast to tame if I don’t have the right kind of brush. For me it took to long to apply and clumped my lashes together .
Every month (or so) I go to my local CVS to pick up $20 of makeup. New (to me) colors, brands or whatever to review. I don’t live near a mall so CVS is all I have.
Anyway, one of the things I purchased was this LIMITED EDITION Wet N Wild Sparkle Til Morning Eyeshadow. [I also got “Drinking a Glass of Shine”/ I Heart Matte] I picked this pallet because of these gorgeous neutral colors! I don’t know if it’s just me. And tell me if I’m wrong. BUT some of these colors remind me of the Urban Decay Naked 1 and 2 pallets. All of these colors remind me of the Naked pallets except for the the obvious blue-green/ teal definer color. This is a great dupe for someone on a budget.
So a couple of weeks ago ELF (Eyes Lips Face) sent me a coupon code for this large beauty set for only – $20! Very CHEAP! I usually buy ELF in stores and not online but this one was so cheap I could not pass it up! Not to mention there were a few items in the set that I have never tried. Couldn’t find a reason for not buying this kit…so…I had to snatch up this deal.
It arrives! I opened up in front of my camera and slowly began taking stuff out one-by-one. So far so good on the makeup products. Now on to the brushes! (Saving the best for last.) I was pretty disappointed with 2 things.

One Saturday afternoon three women sat around my dining room table and had a girls afternoon filled with cleansers, moisturizers and tons of makeup! I tried on a lot of stuff…I mean a lot. Two hours later I wanted to buy so many things to add to my growing makeup collection!

NARS and MAC makeup companies are very popular. Bold and daring colors that have makeup addicts rushing to retail stores and online to buy the best eyeshadows (as far as pigmentation).
I recently took a trip to Saks Fifth Avenue and was immediately stopped at the NARS counter in the front of the store. Strategically placed I’m sure.
So I have decided to review the new Maybelline mascara called Illegal Length Fiber Extensions and also make my first “talking” video about it. YAY!
Maybelline says this product is new but I could have sworn that back in high school they
