Shop and Tell

My Avon shipment was delayed a day because of Memorial Day, so today's post will be a Shop and Tell :)

It's been a while since I bought new beauty products from anywhere other than Avon, so today while I was out running errands I stopped by Wal-Mart and picked up a few things I had been wanting.

First I picked up a bottle of Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser. I got a sample size of this in my Target Beauty Bag and really liked it. Next I got a bottle of NYC Matte

Wish List Wednesday

I was looking around on Sephora the other day and seen this eye shadow palette from Stila called In the Light palette. I do not own any high end makeup, but this palette is one high end product I would love to have. I feel like I would be able to work with all the colors in this palette, because the are neutrals. I also like that all of the shadows can be worn wet or dry and it comes with a smudge stick waterproof eyeliner and an 8 page look book showing you how to create different looks with this palette.

What's on your wish list this week?

Try it Again Tuesday's

I'm sure, like me, a lot of you have bought a beauty product and it somehow found itself shoved to the back of a shelf or the bottom of a drawer either because you forgot about it or it was something that you didn't really liked the first time you tired it. This happens to me often so I thought I would try these products again and see if my opinion on them had changed or to remember why I liked them to start with. This may become a weekly or bi-weekly post :)

So this Tuesday I have two products, one that got shoved to the back of a shelf because I didn't like it a lot the first time I tried it and one that I simply forgot that I had.

Nail of the Week

This week I wanted something super bright on my nails. After I got my color on I just thought it was kinda plain so I added black polka dots, then on top of that I added silver to the dots. I used Sinful Colors in 24/7 as my base color. I used Rimmel Black Satin for the dots and Pure Ice in Beware for the silver dots.

What did you wear on your nails this week?

Friday Favorites

Here are my Friday Favorites for this week.

1) This is my Mark eye shadow in Gioia. It's not one of the best eye shadows that I own but I really like the color.
2) Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser. I got this in my most recent Target Beauty Bag and I have been loving it! I feel like it gets my face really clean. I think this is a product that I will be purchasing in the near future.
3) Nivea Extended Moisture Daily Lotion. Another product that I got in my most recent Target Beauty Bag. I love this lotion it is super moisturizing and smells amazing!
4) Was feeling the need for some extra coverage this week, so I reached for my Extra Lasting Foundation from Avon. I really like this foundation cause it gives such good coverage and it has SPF12.
5) I always get compliments on my skin/complexion almost every time I wear my ELF makeup mist and set. I love using this because it allows me to be able to wear powder with out my face looking all cakey! ELF is currently having a sale where you can get this BOGO Free!
6) My Avon blender! Love this thing!
7) I have been using this mascara a lot because I prefer brown mascara to black when I just want a natural look. So I have been reaching for my Mark scanda-lash mascara in Brown Out.
8) I have been reaching for my Kiehl's Abyssine cream+ quite a bit the last few days. I got this in my May Birchbox. I really like how well this cream moisturizes and how soft it leaves my skin.

What were your favorites from this week?

Avon Haul Favorites and Fails

If you have not seen my Avon haul from last campaign go ahead and check that out :)

Out of the six products that I purchased 2 of them were complete fails! The Main Squeeze lip gloss is just way too sticky and sparkly for my taste. The Mark Speedway Do Everything makeup in Ivory was an even bigger fail in my opinion. First off it has kind of a yellowish tint to it, it seems to settle in to any fine lines that you may have and the finish looks really powdery. Definitely not good for anyone that has any dryness on their face, like I do. Also I am pretty pale and this make up made me look like a ghost : /

Brainstorming and Opinions

I love blogging about makeup and such, and I want my blog to be the best that it can be, so over the weekend I sat down and did some brainstorming about things I could do on my blog. I came up with a nice amount of stuff and certain days to do them on. Such as on Sundays I'll do my nail of the week, Wednesdays I'm gonna do Wish List Wednesday. Every other Thursday I'll do my Avon haul (if I purchase anything) and on the next Thursday I'll do Faves and Fails from my haul. Fridays will still be my Weekly Favorites. I'll also still be doing reviews on products and other hauls besides Avon.

I would love to know what my readers would like to see here on this blog. If you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments section below.

That's all for today, just wanted to let you know what you could be expecting on my blog. I'll see you all tomorrow for my first installment of Wish List Wednesday :)

Review: Avon Precision Grip Teardrop Blender

Have you ever heard of the Beauty Blender? Well the Avon precision grip teardrop blender is practically the same thing, but at a fraction of the cost. A Beauty Blender costs $19.95 and Avon's Blender is only $4.99! Avon's precision grip teardrop blender is made of Polyurethane and has a suede-like texture to help blend makeup seamlessly. I have searched to find out what the Beauty Blender is made from and all I can find on their website is "Beauty Blender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free". Avon's blender measures 2 3/8" X 1 5/8".

Nail of the Week 5/20

This week I was feeling the need for a little sunshine :)
For this nail look I started out with my China Glaze strong adhesion base coat, then I used Sinful Colors Unicorn and topped that with my Essie luxeffects in as gold as it gets. I'm still not too sure how much I like the Essie Luxeffects, but I figured I paid $8 for it, so I better use it LOL. I wish I would have got it in Shine of the Times, but I could not find it.
What nail look did you rock this week?

Review: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition

About a month ago I was sent a bottle of Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo and a bottle of the matching conditioner from BuzzAgent to test out and review. I used these products for a couple of weeks and I have to say I don't like them. The product claims to transform your hair with the most intense nourishment yet and that it nourishes hair to the core. Also states that hair shines from within.

Birchbox May

I received my May Birchbox in the mail last week. I barely got to try out my products from last months box before this one came LOL.

Avon Haul--Campaign 10

I've been sick and have not left my house in about a week, so no beauty favorites this week. But I do an Avon haul, even though it's all mark products ;) I did purchase another one of the Tear Drop Blenders, will have a a review on that soon!

So here are the mark products that I purchased. Main Squeeze lip gloss in Honey Squeeze. I think the packaging is really cute. The outer part is made of clear hard

Nail of the Week

This weeks nails were inspired by the shimmering body oil spray in my Avon haul! For this nail look I started out with my China Glaze strong adhesion base coat, then I used Sinful Colors Tahiti Breeze and topped that with my Essie luxeffects in as gold as it gets.

Avon Haul

Another post that I'm going to try very hard to get put up every other Thursday will be my Avon hauls. I am an Avon Representative, but when I do reviews on Avon products you will get my 100% honest opinion on the products.

This campaign I only ordered 3 products. The one that I was most excited about getting was the Precision Grip Tear Drop Blender. It is similar to the Beauty Blender. I also got a Super Magnify Mascara in Brown and a bottle of Skin So Soft's Mineral Gems Glamorous Gold Shimmering body oil spray.

I will be trying these products out very soon and will be reviewing all three, so check back for those.

Friday Favorites 5/4/12

Hello readers! I'm going to start posting a blog every Friday called, Friday Favorites. These posts will consist of the products that I have used the most during the week. I took one photo of all the products together, if you would like to see each of the products alone and closer up in future Friday Favorites let me know in the comments down below.

1) I Envy Volume N Define mascara by Kiss. This quickly became one of my favorite mascaras shortly after receiving it as a prize from on of Kiss' giveaways. It is super easy to remove. It's one of those 'tube' type mascaras.

2) Neutrogena healthy skin liquid foundation in classic Ivory. I've been trying to find a foundation that I really like (not having much luck) but this is the one that I used all this week

3) Wet n Wild Color Icon trio in Silent Treatment. I LOVE Wet n Wild products! This week I've just been do simple eyes, therefore I only used the bottom shadow in this trio.

4) Wet n Wild Mega shield lip color in the shade Birthday Suit. I really like this lipstick because it has SPF in it to help protect my lips while I'm out in the sun.

5) NYC Liquid Lipshine in the color Nude York City. NYC is one of my favorite brands!

6) Zoya Nail polish that I received in my Birchbox in the color Lotus.
