Time is almost up for most Cyber Monday deals!  Go get them while you can!  There are some pretty good deals happening at this moment, and still many great stuff left.  I didn't get much, but I still wish I could get some more, but when you're broke! I can only browse and X the page when I'm done looking! :(

But anywho!  Some sites still up and running!

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow

 Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow

Discover an endless spectrum of luminosity. 
Play with all 4 shades and watch your eyes light up a new way every time! 


Moonlit Jewels

Flash + No Flash

 Review It:

~ Very Pigmented, the more you pack on, the deep darker it is, the less, more shimmer
~ Cheap (for four colors and a mirror)
~ Available at most drugstores and supermarkets
~ Dupes of MAC/Benefits creme shadows

~ Creases easily, may need a primer base

I've been using this palette for some time now and I must say its a good palette.  I have since purchased another palette in different colors.  The palette is slim and has a mirror so it is easy to carry and no need for carrying different heavier paint pots.  I chose this palette as it had all different colors which I could easily use any color for any occasion.  The colors are bright and have awesome shimmer to them.  For the price and how pigmented it is, this is a great buy!

NOTW - OPI Rumple's Wiggin

This polish is from the OPI Shrek Collection that came out earlier this year.  It is my first lilac, light purple color nail poish, which at first I hesitated to buy as I was not sure if it will turn out pretty one my nails.

Overall, I absolutely love the color!  It is such a soft lilac color, very girly, yet it is different.  I got lots of comments because it was different and a very pretty color.

NOTW - OPI Rumple's Wiggin

On an earlier post about my Ulta Haul, this polish was one of which I got a good deal on.  Overall I paid about $4 since it was 2 for $10 deal.  I wasn't going to go for a lilac color polish, but I bought it on a whim, and super excited I tried it out!  Definitely a color anyone can pull off, soft and pastel color, but catches many eyes.  I need to do at least 3 coats for an opaque look, and can be kind of runny.  Once finished, those 3 coats looked amazing!  With no top coat (I forgot), this polish lasted me about a week before it started to chip.  I definitely will look into purchasing more colors and colors especially in purples and lilacs.

Last week, I decided to head to Ulta since I had some extra time to shop after work.  I usually do not buy much at Ulta; I just look around and leave.  This time I actually picked up 3 items from Ulta.

HAUL Items:  2 OPI nail polishes and Revlon lipstick
 Rumple's Wiggin and Honeymoon Sweet
Revlon 035 Blush

Ulta was having a promotion for OPI.  It was 2 for $10 OPI sale, so I picked up two colors that were available for the sale.  That was a great deal since one OPI is already $8,50, so mines was about $5 each with the deal.  The Revlon lipstick was also on clearance, so about a $1.50 off retail.  With the $3.50 off $10 coupon, I was able to save even more on the purchase.  I love it when I can save some money on cosmetics.

Definintely, next time you shop at ULTA, don't forget to use those coupons, it will save you a ton!

Purchase a Regular Zoya Color Lock System and get any 6 Zoya Nail Polishes FREE. or Purchase a Mini Zoya Color Lock Syste (Holiday minicure) and get any 2 Zoya Nail Polishes FREE.

Not enough time for me to ponder if I want it or not!  I really want to try Zoya polishes, but haven't gotten the chance to get any just yet!  Maybe I'll have to get this bonus promo before I regret it!

Buy it here!

Have you tried the Zoya Color-Lock System?

Calvin Klein Sale & CK shoes @ TJ Maxx

Calvin Klein is having a Sale online with up to 40% off all outerwear including hats, gloves, scarves and more.
Since winter is already here for many of us!  New gloves and scarves will be handy!
Check out the sale online!

Talking about Calvin Klein, the other day I went to TJ Maxx and perused their shoe aisles.  I love that many times I can find brand name shoes there for half or more off the retail price!  As I was looking I spotted a pair of shoes that caught my eye!  I'm not a high heel lady, I only wear it out when I can or once in a blue moon, but this was beautiful to me! hehe  For $50, it wasn't a bad price at all.  I tried it and loved it but didn't get it, as I wasn't sure if I'll wear it again! Maybe if the next time its still there, I'll have to pick it up!

Anyone know the name of the shoe?

Ahh, I got to start wearing heels more often, so I can actually buy beautiful Shoes!!!!!

Nail of the Week: OPI Maine-iac Mauve

Its been awhile ladies! I've been super busy with life, work, and school.  I hope to come back full time! But I'll try to keep posting as much as I can.

Here is a quick Nail of the Week that I did this week.  I used OPI's nail polish color in Maine-iac Mauve.  Its a mauve tone colored.  A bit of red, purples, and browns mixed together.  I actually like this color as it is very toned down, not so bright but not so boring either.  It has hints of gold, but just hints.

I've had this polish for some time now, I just kind of forgotten about it! Its nice to wear berry mauve tones again as nail polish.  I've been wearing too many pinks and bright reds!

 Exciting News!!  

So 2 of my friends and I are super excited! We will be starting a Beauty blog together, where the 3 of us will be sharing our love of beauty, fashion, and nails for everyone.  It is in the works right now. I'll let you know when it is done! Come join me over there once its finished.  I'll continue to update this blog as my personal blog and beauty blog.
