Advanced Moisture

Medicell Labs Advanced Moisture Eye Mask Duo

mask

I do not like these gel eye masks. Paper masks stick to my face, while these silicone pieces slid around. I had to lay in bed and listen to music with these on and even then, they still moved. Also, I don’t think that they had much serum on them. It states a quarter of an ounce, but there was BARELY any product on the silicone pieces and NOTHING left over in the plastic tray. They were not expired and the seal was not broken. Maybe I got a dud? All I know is that I prefer paper masks better or a whole eye mask gel piece that have a string to hook on your ears or goes around your head.

Thermal Spring Water

For Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water

skincare

This was nice to have to use with my skincare to prep my skin before adding my serum. It allowed thicker serums to spread easily. I am not going to purchase, because this is expensive for water. I bought a spray bottle at Walmart that I intend to put distilled water in to use instead of an expensive aerosol can of water. I can see this being convenient for travel, but otherwise than that, this is very much a princess product. I welcome another PR bottle of this anytime, because it is a good product. It is just very expensive for what it actually is.

November Makeup Bag

We are half way through November, so I feel like I’m late coming to the party with this. I’m going to do it anyway though. I haven’t been using any of the eye makeup. I got pink eye and then caught a bit of a cold from my son. I’m feeling better, so hopefully I can dabble more into the makeup that I have set aside for the month. Before I get into this month’s picks, I’m going to recap on what happened in October.

I used this blush 5 days a week all month long and I barely scratched the surface of it. I thought for sure that I could pan it or at the very least wear down the imprint. I will bring it back for my December bag, because I really love this blush. It is very pigmented and a little goes a long way. I hit pan on my eye gloss and I found out that it wore better without eye primer. I love how this looked on my eyes. It was a nice and easy eye look that was very pretty. It paired great with bold lips. I used up my Cover FX drops. I didn’t make a noticeable dent on the Nars concealer or the Tarte lip paint. I made a bit of progress on the perfume, but I don’t mind because I love the scent on it.

I have used all of these products a few times. I have dabbled in the Hourglass 2016 Holiday Palette and used the finishing powder and blush a few times. I’m trying to use up the Caitlyn lip gloss, because I don’t like lip glosses that are pigmented in dark colors. It smears around like crazy. I only use this at home. I want to use up some perfume samples and work on my Vampire perfume that I love. I’m kinda getting sick of it though. I’ve used the eye shadow once and then got pink eye. I threw out my Benefit Gimmie Brow, because they have been on the news as having TOXIC ingredients. Could be the reason why I got pink eye. I also got rid of my mascara since I got pink eye and I had used that on my eyes that day. I’ve used the foundation once and liked it. It did flake up my moisturizer though. I’m going to try it with primer this week.

monthly

Above is what my daily makeup cabinet looks like. I have a few of my other daily supplies in there like primer, lip treatments, and a purple corrector. I like that it’s not too busy and I can easily reach in for things without knocking anything over.

What do you have in your makeup bag?

Beach Spray

For Marc Anthony Beach Spray

hair

This smells delicious, but I would not purchase this one. It left my hair feeling sticky and looking greasy the next day. If you wash your hair after using this and you don’t mind the stickiness than you might like this. It did keep my waves looking piecey and held them in longer. It is good for a bed head sort of look. The sweet scent also attracted flies, so its a pass from me.

Beauty, SALE

Sephora Lust List

I’d thought that I would quickly share my Sephora Love’s List with all of you while the sale is still going on. I will not be buying from the sale this year, but I am buying a ton of stuff from Victoria Secret’s. I qualified for one of their credit cards and I have my bonus for getting my degree in my next paycheck. I thought that I would charge my credit card now and get the $20 dollar gift cards when you spend $40. I plan on spending somewhere around $100 at VS, but with the gift cards that would be $140. So, basically instead of spending $100, I would basically be spending $60 when you add the two giftcards into the mix. I really need some new bras and underwear. I’m hoping to get some clothes too if I like anything.

I’ll be buying furniture with my other 250 of the raise. I might add another $50 towards shopping at my favorite thrift store, but more on that later.

I don’t have any pictures, but that’s okay. You can quickly search for the images on Sephora. I only use pictures that I own on my blog. My posts will be a bit on the quicker side this week, since I have so much going on. I hope everyone has a great week. I’m hoping to get my monthly makeup bag post up tomorrow if I find the extra time. I have the pictures all done since before November. I had pink eye this week and I’m dealing with a wart on my hand. Not good conditions to have to blog with.

$200 Before 2018: Update #7

I did not finish as much as I would have liked in October. I’m really cutting it close with this project. I’m starting to think that I won’t be able to use up $200 worth of makeup before the New Year. But I am getting away from myself again.

Let’s recap: I have used 15 out of 20 products to the tune of $133.20 out of $200.

I’m really not sure if I am going to make it. To “win” this challenge, I need to have used up at least 2 products to the tune of 22.27 for the next three months to pull this off. I am not sure about the dollar amount, but I did use up at least 2 products. At least, I think I won half the challenge this past month. It just means that I need to hustle in November!

By glancing at this, I can see that I finished up 4 products bringing my total to 19 out of 20 products used up. I will easily hit my goal of 20 by the November update no problem there. Now, let’s take a look at the price of everything. I paid $7 for the Sephora powder. The Cover FX was in a $10 kit, so I’ll take it as $5 worth. Okay, so far it’s $12, let’s keep going. These nail polishes retailed for $7.99. Now, I’m up to $19.99. Let’s give $1 for the sample. That’s $20.99. I’m looking up the perfume now to see if I can find it. I found the roller ball selling for $3.50, so I’ll say the same for this one. My total used this month is $24.49 and totally NOT what I was expecting. I might actually have a chance!

My total used up is 19 out of 20 totaling $157.69 out of $200. I need to use up $21.15 the next two months in order to “win” this panning challenge. It feels so good to use up what you have and not see SO MUCH clutter. I mean, I still see clutter, but it feels good to use up your stash. This challenge has really opened up my eyes to what I have and how long it takes to use up items. I’m going to be more strict with myself and makeup next year. I’m going to go on a year low buy. I’m only allowing myself to splurge twice a year, otherwise than that, only when I NEED something like replacing my daily face powder.

With Love,

Selena

October Empties

Another month, another empties post. I went through surprising a lot this month. I wasn’t expecting to use up so much, but it seems like a lot of my products are on their last legs. I expect November and December to be heavy months as well. I am grateful that I never lost power in the storm that terrorized New England this week and I pray for the lives lost in the terrorist attack in New York City. That city has gone through way too much. My car was damaged in the storm, but at least, no one got hurt. I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I’ll be outside playing with my son today.

I am super impressed with what I was able to move out this month. I’m running low on product reviews, so I might disappear during the week with no new posts once in a while. On those weeks, I will be writing product reviews for my blog. I like to hand write them first before typing them up on my blog. Next week will probably be an empty week. I’m going to try to write as many reviews as I can. Maybe I can empty out my review basket. I’m hoping to write ten reviews, because lets face it, there are like 50 products in my review basket right now. lol. If I do 5 reviews a day this weekend, I’ll be happy.

With Love,

Selena
