Oh man! I went to the mall intending on paying my macys bill and getting late xmas gifts but ended up blowing my whole check! I looked ahead of time online at the stores at Boca Town Center... I knew Old Navy, Gap and Banana Republic had sales but only hit up Old navy. I ended up buying my mom a couple tops (as a late christmas present) and getting my self a few things... I got myself a black cardigan and 2 white tops... very nice and @ $2 a piece, even nicer. I went to Sephora to pick a two gifts (one for each of my besties) and something for myself. As I'm standing in line, I see a box and a lady is standing in front of it and I see $10... DING DING DING DING! I was resisting on buying it, but I caved. (I need to up on my insider points too, lol. I;m at 76 points =]) Anyway, I was so excited to use it, but I was running late for work... So, I got home, and I immediately opened the package. It a set of 2 illuminating powders (that are full size, mind you.) The set comes in rose gold and bronze. These retail at $32 each!!! U ain't gota tell me twice! lol... I was about to buy a mineralized skinfinish from M.A.C. but I spent half as much for 2 times the product! These are two beautiful colors that can be used as highlighter or blush... More info is here. Enjoy the weekend!

So, while at the dollar store on my break, I saw this mineral powder kit and wanted to try it. I have seen it at Walgreens & Walmart and always passed on it... This time I bought it to give it a chance. I got it home and looked through the packaging, by the way which is very clever. It features a pot with a sifter and a cap to the sifter so the powder doesn't go everywhere. I love it! It also features a little brush/sponge duo and a waterproof sealer (main reason I bought this). The next morning I tried it and instantly fell in love. I used the powder fry at the upper lashline to smoke it out and then did the liquid liner. So pretty! I forgot to post pics of the liner wet but I will do that later. Enjoy! P.S. I liked it so much I bought another the day after! lol

So, I went to Sally's today to buy a hair relaxer to do my hair today. I walked around looking at various items. I saw that China Glaze's Matte Magic was reduced to $2.99! I wanted to purchase but skipped out, maybe another time. So anyway, I always stop by the Sally Girl display and peeped the Sally Baked Eyeshadow singles. I was initially looking for a black or carbon color. But found a pretty green and pretty blue. They were only 89¢... Can't beat that price... well check you guys out later. I will probably post a look tomorow... Im hitting up Sawgrass with my bestie!! Time for a nap!

Sorry about my absence... I guess I have been sort of discouraged because of my lack of followers and lack of a good camera.. Anyway, I wanted to blog about a recent haul that I did over the weekend... I bought two makeup brushes: 1 face powder and 1 eyeshadow smudger. I have tried both brushes and they are very soft. The face brush is perfect for applying face powder and blush... I used the eyeshadow smudger brush yesterday and it looks the same shape of the 219 (pencil brush) from either M.A.C. or Sigma Makeup.. although I do not have these brushes, this brush is a great alternative from the reviews of the above mentioned brushes. I did two looks with this brush and it helped wonders as I didn't have a pointed eye brush before. I would post but my camera is busted at the moment (mentioned in a previous post)... [Update on the camera situation: I am currently saving up for a camera I saw at Target...] Anyway, I will keep in touch... Besos...
