Mascara Combination

I just thought I would share with you girls what my favorite mascara combination has been for the past couple months. First I curl my lashes then apply Covergirl lash blast length. This really is great for lengthening. It does not clump at all because it does not give volume, only length, that's why I apply Rimmel Max Volume Flash next.(After waiting a couple minutes) This gives a lot of volume like it says. I know my lashes don't look perfect but I like them!
Covergirl Lash Blast Length

Rimmel Max Volume Flash
Hope this will help you with your next mascara purchase!
*I bought these with my own money so this is all my own opinion.

Victorias Secret

So I picked up a few things from Victoria's Secret and I thought I would share them with you!

This is a new body mist by PINK and it's called Pretty & Pure. The bottle is adorable and it smells just like the name! This is a great spring and summer scent. I loveee this bronzer. It's a face and body bronzer and it's HUGE. (It's about the size of a CD) I picked it up because of the cute packaging and because it matches the body mist, I wasn't really expecting this to be a good bronzer but it is! And it was part of the 2 for $20 deal so I got these for $10 each. Good deal.

This is another body spray and it's called sweet and flirty. It's a little mini body mist, perfect to stick in your purse! They are so good at naming their body mist's because this one smells just like the name too! haha sorry I'm bad at describing them but I loveee it. I'm sure you can look up online what the scent is. This one is another good summer scent.

Random Haul

So I went shopping today and decided to show you guys what I got..
First I got a few OPI nail polishes. Lucky Lucky Lavender, Jade is the new black, (both from the Hong Kong collection) and You don't know Jacques! A terrible thing happened while I was purchasing these.. I was holding all three in one hand and all of the sudden.. bang. Yes, I dropped one on the floor and it splattered everywhere. I was so embarrassed and the lady working there was not happy at all but she didn't even charge me for it. Yep, pretty embarrassing.
These next three things are from Aerie. This is there new perfume called 'Aerie in love'. I actually got this one because right when I walked in the store it smelt wonderful so I asked what the smell was and it was this! I love the smell but I'm not a big fan of the packaging. Oh, and I got the lotion in the same scent for free with my purchase! This one is called Carly obviously haha and the main reason I bought this was because of the adorable bow on the top. It smells good too though.

I love this bikini. It's from Aerie also. I've always been a fan of floral and I'm happy because floral things are in style right now but I'm also sad because everyone and their mother likes floral now, too. haha

These last two things are from Forever 21. This is just the cutest little bow ring. I'm kind of obsessed with bow things at the moment.

This is just a cute little hello kitty key cap.

*Everything on here was paid for with my own money and these are my own opinions.
Well, that's all. Hope you enjoyed seeing all my little goodies I got today!
bye loves!

Hair product haul

Well my CVS was having a sale so I decided to go. Some of the things I got were on sale and some weren't. Also, some of the things I bought I've never tried before but some are things that I am repurchasing because I love them so much. This is got 2b smoothing lustre lotion. It says to use before you style but I'm not exactly sure what it is to be honest.. the truth is that I was drawn to this because of the packaging! Isn't it adorable?! Oh, and this was buy one get one 50% off.
Isn't the charm just so cute?
This is got 2b hot smooth flat iron & blow dry lotion. I got this one for 50% because I bought the one above. I couldn't find anything else to get my 50% off on so that's why I got this one. I already have heat protectant for blow drying and straightening from got 2 b (It's on one of my other posts) hmm.. oh well

TRESemme 24 hour body root boosting spray. I'm really excited to try this one! This is a whole new line from TRESemme and they have many different products called '24 hour body'.

John Frieda frizz-ease heat defeat protective styling spray. I already have this product but I'm about to run out so I needed to get some more! I recommend it! I have no clue why it says new on the bottle because it isn't old one doesn't even say new on it haha Anyways, I talked about this on one of my other posts so you can read about it there.

TRESemme anti- breakage shampoo and conditioner. It says it reduces split ends and I really need that! My hair is very parched so I hope this can help give it moisture and protect it from breaking.

Garnier Fructis super stiff gel. I have used gel by Garnier Fructis before and just ran out of it so that's why I purchased this. I haven't used this exact one because it seems like they change the name and how strong they are every time I buy one. The reason I am repurchasing this is because of the smell.. It is amazinnnnggg. Most gels smell bad, but this one sure doesn't and it does what it supposed to do buy holding the hair in place. I only use this for scrunching my hair so.. it works for that.
Thanks for reading loves!

E.L.F. Haul and a couple randoms

So I recently ordered some things from E.L.F. cosmetics and I got them in the mail today!
First is this really pretty lipstick. It's called mineral lipstick in Natural Nymph. I love neutral and light pink colors and this is both! It looks great with a little gloss over top of it and I love it! This is their Kabuki Face brush and it was only $5! I was not expecting a $5 brush to be so soft, but it is! I was excited when I felt it and I will be purchasing more of these.

This is a corrective concealer. I really got this so I could use the green because it is supposed to cancel out redness, which I need.
This is the Eyebrow kit. I believe they had a few different colors of these. It comes with the gel and the powder and a mini double sided brush.

These are individual lashes with a little bottle of glue.

These are called Hollywood eyelashes. I'm not too impressed with these because I don't remember them looking like this on the website. For me, these are way too dramatic and thick to wear out in public but it's a good idea with all the stuff that comes in the kit.

I also got an eyebrow stencil kit from E.L.F. but I forgot to take a picture, oops!

This stuff is from Target.
This is my new favorite foundation and it's taken me forever to find a foundation that I really, really like! It's Rimmel london Stay matte foundation.
This is Jemma Kidd lipstick ( you can find it at Target). The color is belle de jour. I like this lipstick but I don't know if it's worth $15. I was hoping to go to target to get cheaper stuff but this is the same price as Mac.

This is Revlon Colorstay mineral finishing powder in 010 Brighten. This isn't very pigmented but It works great as a highlight on the cheeks. I really do like it!

Thanks for reading! If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Heat protectants

I soon realized that I needed to find a good heat protectant after my hair seemed to stop growing after blow drying, straightening, and dying it for years. So I'm going to share with you a few of the heat protectants that I have right now and tell you the ones that I like the best.
This one is from the John Frieda collection and it's like to keep it from getting frizzy and it's a heat protectant for straightening your hair. I use this on pretty damp hair and I usually spray about 6 sprays onto my hair and then I brush through it with my brush. I've found that this also works as a de-tangler. This is my favorite of the ones that I have and I will be repurchasing this one very shortly. (It has lasted a while even with me using it after every shower) This one is Got 2B guardian angel flat iron balm + gloss finish. I do like this one but I'm not really sure if I've noticed a difference when using this.

This is Got 2B gloss finish Blow - out lotion. I usually don't use this one because I use my one from John Frieda. Really the only thing I can say about this one is that I like my one from John Frieda better haha.
These were all purchased with my own money so it's obviously my opinion.
Thanks loves!

Tanning Mousse gone wrong...

In my lifetime I have tried just about every tanning method known to man kind so when I heard about St. Moriz I knew I had to try it. The only problem was that I could only find it in London, so I went ahead and ordered it. (Mistake number one) I was so excited when it finally came in the mail until... I saw this...
and this...

Yeah, that's the receipt... (once white)

: (

I wonder how much of it got wasted... I hope I can still salvage some of it to use. I guess the lesson learned is don't order tanning products from across the world, they might not make it in one piece.
Does anyone know if they sell this in the U.S.?
