WTH!!! Sara is alive??? + project 10 product

Hello? Heelllloooooo? Is anyone there, does  anyone still read this blog? LOL, hi my lovely readers, long time no communicate. Who would have thunk that a new job would mean 16 hour work days? NOT ME! But, I’m here, I’m rearing to  share my thoughts so lets get started!

So this summer, I decided to go on a shopping hiatus. This meant NO new makeup, NO new bath products, NO new nothing! I wanted to force myself to use up all that I had stock piled. So how did I do? Take a look 🙂

 

  1. generic baby wipes to remove makeup
  2. 2 tubes of Milani lipgloss
  3. Benefit Lip Plump
  4. Dove deodorant
  5. Clarisonic cleaning brush
  6. Kiels eyecream
  7. Revlon Colorstay Foundation
  8. Neutrogena Acne Face Wash
  9. Maybelline clear mascara
  10. Maybelline Stiletto liner
  11. Maybelline Lash Stilletto mascara
  12. Smashbox Hyperlash mascara
  13. Loreal Collagen Mascara
  14. Maybelline One-by-One Mascara
  15. Elf  Clear gel
  16. Revlon Lash grow Mascara
  17. Maybelline Falsies Mascara
  18. Essence Gel Liner Black an d Purple
  19. Acuve Oasis contact lenses
  20. FAB shaing cream
  21. Bigelow lotion
  22. Perricone MD moisturizer

 

Considering I’m addicted to cosmetics, I think I did fairly well. I knocked out most of my mascara collection, cut out all my skin care samples,  finally finished my foundation and even used my Clarisonic so much that now I need a new brush.

Phewww Im exhausted, just looking at this huge pile in front of me is making me nervous, its like there is a huge void on my vanity…must…replenish…NOW!

MASSIVE $255 MAKEUP HAUL!!!!

Oh dear lord, what have I done!!! Yes, you read right, my dumb butt just bought $255 worth of makeup. WHAT!!! But to save face, I swear it wasn’t ALL my fault. The evil lady at ULTA, distracted me with her caked on makeup and spiderlashes and fooled me into buying stuff I didn’t even need:)

I went in originally to buy some higher end products for my lovely mother. It’s her birthday in a few days, and gosh darnit, the woman deserves some pretty products as well. However, I got selfish. Whoops. If you’ve been to ULTA then you know that they sell higher end products on one side and drugstore products on the other. So jee, hmmm where do you think I ended up? Yup!

I practically skipped to checkout line thinking I had done fairly well, but when the handsome man behind the counter said ” That will be $255″ I literally passed out. Seriously, my evil sister who I only see every other month and had egged me on to buying half the stuff, literally had to grab my hand, cause I was seeing stars before my eyes.

Sighhh……so what does one get with that much money? Not much.

Ladies, ladies, ladies. Luckily ULTA has a really good return policy, because there is no way I could live with myself if I spent 1/3 of my rent money on MAKEUP! I mean I love cosmetics, but I love a roof above my head more 🙂 And, yes some of you may be thinking, why didn’t I just return some products then? Well, soorrry,I got I selfish again. I thought it would make for some reviews, so be prepared 🙂

Drugstore Liquid Liners Comparison

I looooove me some liner! Not only does it  help my hooded eyes pop, but it gives an overall more put together look. Now I would be  lying if I said I’m  not curious about higher end liners, but why spend so much when drugstore liquid liners do the exact same thing 🙂

Below is a comparison of three very popular drugstore liquid liners : Loreal Linear Intense, Maybelline Stiletto, and N.Y.C Liner

Brushes: While both the Loreal Linear Intense and the Stiletto have felt tips,  the NYC liner has a really thin brush

Color Payoff:

Comparison: For overall intenseness of color, the Maybelline Stiletto is the BEST! Not only is it the darkest of the three, it also has the longest staying power. I found  that with the Linear Intense (which is also the most advertised and over hyped on YouTube), I had to go over the line multiple times and even then it wasn’t very black and it had a tendency to turn grey and flake on my oily  lids. The NYC liner was great in color, but the flimsy brush and liquidy formula made it more difficult to work with.

Overall: I’ve been using the Maybelline Stiletto Liner for years, and even when I experiment with other brands and styles, I always find myself going back. Most definitely worth a try 🙂

Review: L’Oreal Lip Balm

Sigh…they got me again you guys. Those evil genius’ at Walgreen’s knew I was coming so they put this pretty pink product right on checkout counter because they knew I wouldn’t be able to resist it. But isn’t it so pretty! See so you can’t really blame me for buying something I didn’t need 🙂

Product: What this essentially is, is an overpriced tinted lip balm. it goes on smooth and is  VERY moisturizing and the slight hint of color  and baby shimmer make the lips look refreshed and pouty. Although the color pay off is very minimal, it can be built up depending  on what shade you purchase.

I purchased Mauve, and this is after a few swipes of color.

Container: It comes in a basic lipstick form. There is nothing special with the packaging but the soft color caps make the product not look cute but very sleek as well. It almost looks like the Dior Lip Balm.

Pricing: Ughhh…..Alright I paid $7.99!! I know, I know, but I told you it was an impulse purchase.

Overall: I really like this product! Besides the sleek, high-end look of the packaging, the lip balm is very mositurizing, long-lasting and the color pay off is  soft and natural. So my dear readers, if you have the money or if you can find this product on sale, go ahead give it a try

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
