So as we decided – I will confess my shopping sins to y’all as soon as they are committed…
This is the damage post a visit to Duane Reade:
I got a 98 color palette for $5!! It was $9.99 and I used my $5 rewards… ta-da!
I also got three Revlon scented polishes (I have been visiting them in the drugstore for days already and I had to get a couple – at least I didn’t get them all!!) I also got a Maybelline palette for either the goodie bag for the Doll Contest or maybe for a swap. I have also started myself on a bright pink lipstick kick and got one in the shade from Jane and Prestige. I also got a Styli-Style Khol pencil thingamabob (and a second one for gifting – not pictured) – it’s new and seems interested.
Instead of letting y’all in on my problems with purchasing on a regular basis, I am going to make this monthly, so on the last day of every month – watch out for Swag Attack! This month I’d say I was good (at least in comparison to how I foresee March going down in the history books). Like my honey says when he sees new shadows/items: “I smell a big purchase in there.”
Well here’s what the scent carried folks:
Sephora Swag:MUFE Glossy Full Couleur
in pale pink
(I think #7)MUFE Flash Color E/S
in Fard Gras
(or pale green as Sephora calls it)MUFE Eye Seal
(wanted to see if it worked better than others… )Sephora by OPI nail polish
in Metro Chic
(got it b/c it was the closest dupe of OPI You Don’t Know Jacques and I have been trying to track that down for weeks already – sold out – though now that I think about it… why didn’t I order it online sooner? … ANYWAY!! – See sample below)
Too Faced Mirror Mirror Gloss in I’m Perfect (scroll down to 2/26 to read my review)
It looks a little more gray in person.
Got some cheapies from Feel Beauty Supply
in downtown Brooklyn. Everything on that list was $2 or under each (not counting the polish b/c that cost more and
was from another store… Didn’t get a chance to sample the polish yet!! ahh!)
Went to CVS and Duane Reade to get items to review and came back with aplenty.
Got a Gel Liner Palette from Pantina (their site is under construction) in Duane Reade b/c it looked interesting. I found an article snippet about the company here if anyone’s interested.
Pantina Gel-Liner Palette (see swatches below)
CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stains in 420 and 415 (for a future review)
L’Oreal HIP Jelly Balm in Savory 420 (seems to be my # for lips I guess)
& Sally Hansen Insta-Dry nail polish in Lightening 10(I swatched it on a nail once before and it really did dry fast and I also happen to be a sucker for bright colors so when I saw it again, had to take it home – see sample below)
Also – me being me, I remixed the Pantina color names since they were a little too plain to me.
The colors in the palette are generically named:
Charcoal, Plum, Dark Gold, Green Blue, Bronzy, Black, Brown
Now you see why I had to switch it up?! =]~
Looked different in different lights.
I had to swatch it and photograph it in different lights because the photo of the actual palette didn’t come out satisfactory. See for yourself!
And now the polish…
