Shoes!!

Hi all!
So I do this monthly shoe club where you pay $39.95 a month and get a pair of shoes or a handbag. You take a style quiz at the beginning and then Every month they pick 6 shoes and 6 handbags for you. You can cancel at anytime and you can skip a month whenever you want it just has too be before the 5th of the month. Here is the link Justfab so you can see more info and sign up if you want =). Also if you sign up it gives me some reward points and same too you for everyone who signs up through your link. Once you get too 100 points you get a free item. I have gotten a few so far and love it. It's a great idea! I got my new shoes today that I used my reward points for. I love them!
I would of shown on foot but I still have to paint my nails so I didn't want to show how they are now! haha but anyways I can't wait too wear these. I LOVE wedges!

I hope I explained it good enough and any questions please ask me! Have a great day!

My E.L.F hits and misses

Hey all!
So last weekend I did a E.L.F haul post to show you what I got. You can see that post and swatches if you click HERE. So now I thought I would do more of a review of what I liked, what I didn't like, and what is just so so to me and why. I guess I will start with what I loved...
*The blush and bronzer duo*
so pretty and I love the shimmer it has! Goes on super easy and a little definitely goes a long way for me.
* The complexion powder*
I had no clue how this would work for me but had seen so many positive reviews I had to try it and I am glad I did! I like to use it over my liquid foundation as a setting powder. It doesn't totally help with all the redness but it does a good enough job for me! I say try it if you haven't.
*Eyelash curler*
Love how this curls my lashes!
*Conditioning lip balm*
Goes on super nice and easy. Very pretty color for a balm and doesn't have bad taste or smell too it. I will definitely get more of these.
Last but certainly not least
*eyelid primer*
I gotta tell you I had no high hopes for this whatsoever! I totally thought it would fail me and just not work. I do have somewhat oily eyelids so I just didn't think it would work but had to try it and wow I was wrong!! I works so good for me it ranks right up there with Urban Decay Primer Potion! Now I don't know how it will last for a long night or party so I can't say it lasts all night but it does last through the day for me. I just really couldn't believe how good it worked. I am so happy it did since its so cheap!! I will definitely keep this in my makeup drawer!! Go try it if you haven't!

Eh...these are the products that are not the worst but really didn't work for me:
*The mineral infused face primer*
Didn't really do a thing for me at all and didn't help with my oilyness at all which is the main reason I bought it too see if it would help. I'm constantly trying to find something for my oily tzone so if you know of something that helps please please let me know!
*zit zapper*
I don't see it doing a thing. I have a couple pimples that I wanted to be gone but this really didn't help for me. I guess I will stick to what I know will help or maybe it's cause I haven't used it for long enough. I dunno but it just really didn't impress me.

And now for the stuff I won't buy again:
*Natural lashes*
They don't even look the same too me...one is cut too short in spots and they just don't look that natural to me at all.
 *eyebrow treat and tame*
I got the color dark and its not at all the dark color I thought it would be. I was hoping a dark brown color. I also switched the wands to see if I would like it a bit better but really I just don't like it at all. Just doesn't work for me and it's probably cause the color was so off to me. I think I will try what I have seen a lot of bloggers use. the maybelline clear mascara?
*eyeshadow duo's*
I got 2 cream and 1 regular and like none =( the cream ones crease no matter what I do and I just don't care for them at all and the regular I really didn't care for the color when I put it on. Oh well I am glad I got too try to at least see what I like and didn't like.

Hope this helped a little bit and you enjoyed it! Let me know what you think or what your faves are and any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!!

A fun NOTD

Hey all! Decided to share a fun NOTD with you all =)
  So my youngest daughter decided she wanted to paint her own nails instead of having me paint them today, so I told her go ahead and pick out the color or colors she wants from my nail polish drawer. She picked sugar sugar by sinful colors and Free fall by pure ice.
And this is how she did:
I say pretty good for a 6 year old =)
She was very proud and is turning into my little beauty monster! She loves getting into my makeup and nail polish drawers to play and to try to get stuff from me. She is always asking if I really need something because she wants it and really needs it! haha

Well I hope you all enjoyed a different take on the NOTD!
Enjoy your day!

Sinful colors nail polish haul

Hey all! So I decided to get some sinful colors nail polish off walgreens.com while they were on sale. I decided just to go off the swatches from online and see what I get and what they actually look like. I never rely on the online swatches, I swear they are always off! I took a chance just cause they were only .99 cents so why not! here are the pics...
From left to right:
Social ladder,Glass Pink, Beautiful Girl, Mint Apple, Hazard, All About You, and Hotspot

Social Ladder(done with 2 coats)
My thoughts: Very pretty but probably one I wouldn't buy again. I think I will try putting it on top of another color to see what it's effect is.

Glass Pink(done with 2 coats)
My thoughts:
I think its very similar to social ladder except for its a bit more pinkish. I think only doing one coat makes them look even more alike. I prefer this one over social ladder just because it has the more pinkish tone to it. This is another one I will probably layer over a different color.

Beautiful Girl(done with 3 coats)
My thoughts:
 I really love the color of this one but really dislike that I have to do 3 coats or more to achieve its color.

Mint Apple(done with 2 coats)
My thoughts:
Love this color!!! I don't think I have ever wore a color like this and can't believe it has taken me this long to get a color like this. I was hoping it was more like the mint green that is really popular right now but oh well cause I still love it. Definitely will use this a lot!

Hazard(done with 2 coats)
My thoughts:
Another color I would normally not buy but I actually really like it...I think that in the pic it looks a bit brighter than what it looks like in person. I like that its not the bright orange its more of a corally orange color. Definitely a good summer color I think.

Hot Spot(done with 2 coats)
My thoughts:
I am not a fan of blue nail polish. I think its pretty but just don't care for it on me. I seen the swatch and thought it would be darker than it is so I could see if I would like it but it's not so I probably won't use this a whole lot if at all.

All about you(done with 2 coats)
My thoughts:
This is another one I know I will use a lot especially to go over other colors. I have never have had a gold glitter nail polish before so it will be fun to play with this and see what kind of combo's I can come up with. I think I would wear it alone too but probably add another coat.

All in all I am happy with my purchase and what I got. I think that since they were so cheap I got to experiment a little more than if they were normal price(which I know is not a lot but this mama of 3 needs to budget!haha) or if they were more pricey brands of nail polish. Hope you enjoyed my post and let me know if there is one I NEED to try or just to let me know your favorites! I would love to hear.

Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Cream Liner

Hey all! So this is my first creme liner from Wet n Wild and I am pretty happy with it!
I picked this up after seeing a couple reviews on it so of course had to try it for myself =)
What I like:
*Goes on super smooth.
*Lasts a long time
*Can give a great dramatic eye and its great for doing the winged out look.
*Great for just an everyday eye if you have a good thin brush.
*I love how black the color is. Seems like with some eyeliners you keep having to go over and over to get it to be really dark. This takes one line and your good to go. (if that makes sense!)
*The price! I picked this up for around $3.00(can't remember exact price)

What I don't like:
*The brush it comes with. Don't even try a thin close line to your lashes with this one. Plus with how small it is I feel like I don't have the total control I want.
*No trying to smudge this liner. I tried the first time just because I used the brush it came to see how it would do. I didn't like how big the line was after using the brush and I really didn't wanna have to start all over, so I wanted to try too soften the line and learned that If you try smudging this liner you will have tiny black flakes all over you cheeks and eye area.

Other than that I am really happy and will continue too use this. Can't beat the price! I say go try it if you haven't and if you have...How do you like it?

Total Pageviews thanks to you!
