Drugstore, MAC and Ulta Hauls

Hey guys! Over the past couple of weeks, I have been out and about picking up things and wanted to share what I have purchased. I will do full reviews on these products as soon as I use them! So lets get started!!


Just randomly in here one day saw that some of the Milani products were on sale! The only Milani products I own are a few nail polishes and I wanted to try out some of their beauty products. I also wanted to pick up two more of the Jordana lip pencils, I love them!!!

Milani Products:

Brilliant Lip Shine Lip Gloss in Berry Tempting
Baked Blush in Red Vino
Iluminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar

Jordana Lip Pencils in Plush Plum(top) and Terra Kiss(bottom)


So I went to Ulta on multiple occasions and even found a random bag of goodies when I was cleaning one day lol!

The first trip was when I received the coupon for 3.50 off a purchase of 10 or more plus a free item in the category of how much you spent in a period of time. At the time the lip butters were buy one, get one half off and after reading about the Real Technique brushes, I decided to try one out. My free item was the Revlon nail polish. Everything else I wanted to get for my free item was sold out or in colors I didn't like too much!

Starting from Left to Right:

Revlon Lip Butter in Fig Jam
Real Technique Large Powder Brush
Revlon Nail Enamel in Dreamer
Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle

Second and third trips were after I got off work. There is an Ulta down the street from where I work which is not good lol! I found some really great NYX products in the clearance section!

From Left to Right:

(Bottom Left) Nyx Ultra Pearl Mania in Silver Agent
(Top Left) Nyx Eyeshadow in Golden Dune
OPI Nail Polish (from the new collection) in Don't Bossa Nova Me Around
(Bottom Right) Nyx Eyeshadow in Skin Tight

Essie Nail Polish (From the Spring Collection)
Under The Twilight (left) and Resort Fling (Right)
Ardell Glamour Demi Lashes #101

And here is the random bag of goodies I found. I must of purchased this around Breast Cancer Awareness Month because of the pink bracelet that was in the bag. All of these items were in the clearance section, I had issues with getting the stickers off!

Left to Right

Nyx Lipstick in Chole
Zoya Nail Polish in Dove
Nyx Jumbo Lip Pencil In Iced Mocha
Zoya Nail Polish in Megan
Nyx Lipstick in Sky Pink


Lastly, I went to one of my favorite stores on two separate times. The first time, I wanted to see if there was anything left from the Spring collection. I wanted to get this pretty pink pigment and they were sold out so I picked up this really beautiful Mineralize Skinfinish in Perfect Topping.

So then I went to another MAC location on another day and was looking for a nice spring time lipstick and they had the new Mineralize lipsticks out. I tried on just about all of them and purchased two of them, a lip pencil and a small Studio Fix+.
(Left) Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Bold Spring
(Top Center) Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Nice N'Spicy
(Center) Fix+ Spray
(Left) Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Good Taste

That it is for my hauls from the past couple of weeks. I think I need to stay away from all beauty products until IMATS next month and then go on a no buy for a few months lol! What products have you tried? Which ones are you interesting in trying? Comment and let me know!

    1. Hey Tiff, thanks for stopping by! Yea I think I went a little crazy but glad it was over a weeks!

  3. I NEED to try some Milani products esp the blushes! I actually used to use Milani back in high school (2005). Its been around for quite some time. I used their shadows and eyeliners which I loved. Please let me know what you think of those Nyx shadows. I had only tried their quads and wasn't super impressed.

    1. Hey Tanya, thanks for stopping by! I had to try some of the Milani products after reading a few reviews about them. I love the NYX shadows, they are pretty pigmented.

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
