It's Thursday

It's Thursday, but there will be no Avon haul today. I probably won't have another Avon haul until September. I'm trying to save up my money to take a trip to the beach with my best-friend :) So until then I think on Thursdays I'll do reviews on products that I have previously bought from Avon.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Beauty Freebies!

I love that companies are willing to offer free samples of their products. I get most of my freebies from Facebook.

First thing I got I was some samples from Biore. There is a cleanser, a scrub, and a nose strip. Also got a $1.00 off coupon.

I also got a sample of Bodycology's Wild Poppy body cream and a $1.00 off coupon.
This is the freebie that I was most excited about getting. A few months or so ago I was invited to try out a website called Style United. I was told that I would receive a free product from P&G for trying out the site and giving feedback. I thought I'd just get a make up products like a lip gloss or something. Was very surprised to see that I received an Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion and peel system! Very excited to try this out and see how it works.

Have you got any beauty freebies in the mail? If so what were they?

Nail of the Week

For this weeks nails I just wanted something quick, easy and effortless. I was going out of town and did not want to have to worry about chips and that sort of thing, so I used my imPRESS press on manicure in Hottie. I really love these nails! You can read my full review on this brand of nails here. You can also enter my Giveaway to win you very on set!

Haul - Rite Aid

I love Rite Aid, can you tell? It's the only place that I can find Sinful Colors in my area LOL. I posted a Haul the other day from Rite Aid, but I had to go back and take advantage of the 40% sale they were having on Wet n Wild products.

On my second trip I purchased

Avon Haul Favorites and Fails

Last weeks Avon Haul was pretty much split down the middle with good products and not so good products.

My favorites from last week are the Social Stackable Ring Set and the Silvertone Floral Cuff Bracelet. I have wore these pieces numerous times over the last week and always get compliments on them. Another favorite from last week is the eye liner brush from Mark, works great to clean up the nail polish that gets on the edges of my fingers.

The fails from last week were both total fails, very disappointed with the following items. The lip tint was terrible, to me it would have been okay if it was not loaded down with shimmer. I don't know about you, but I don't like to have glitter all over my lips. The next fail for me was the Avon 24k gold mascara in the shade golden brown. I don't like super wet formulas for my mascara, but this mascara was BONE dry! Worst mascara I have ever purchased! The final fail from last week is the Super Extend liquid eye liner in the shade brown. It faded pretty bad on me and it did not go on very dark at all, definitely prefer the pencil liners over this liquid liner.

Two products that I have not used from my haul are the Glimmersticks Chrome eye liner in electric pink and the Nailwear Pro+ in Berry Smooth, so I can't offer any type of review/opinion on them. When I do get around to using them I'll let you know what I think of them.

Did you have any 'Fail' products this week? What were they?

Be sure to check out my Giveaway! There are still a few more days left to enter!

Wish List Wednesday Shopping

I went out and purchased a couple of products from my Wish List Wednesday Posts! I picked up the NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer and NYC City Duet lip color in Cafe Cuties. I've used the primer a couple of times and I like it so far. After I have used these items for a couple of weeks I'll do a review on them both.

What I can tell you so far is

Haul: Sally's and Rite Aid

I went to Sally's the other day to pick up nail wheels, but they didn't have any. Anywho I picked up a few nail polishes from there. I got one of the polishes from the China Glaze Hunger Games Collection in the color Smoke and Ashes. It had been marked down to $3.29! I also picked up a couple Sally Girl nail polishes, they don't have names, but one is neon pink and the other is neon orange. I've been kind of obsessed with neon colors on my toes lately!
The neon colors are much brighter in person, my camera

What's in my Travel Makeup Bag?

I am taking a little trip this weekend (scheduled this post) and I thought I would share with you the makeup items I will be taking with me.

Latest Target Beauty Bag

I was so excited to see my Target Beauty Bag in my mailbox the other day. I am really happy with the samples that came in this bag.

First off it came with a sample of Garnier Fructis Color Shield shampoo and conditioner. I'm really anxious to see what this smells like, it's made with Acai Berry antioxidants and Grape seed oil. Another interesting thing about this product it has UVA & UVB Protectant in it.

Next I got Aveeno Active Naturals

Avon Haul: June 14

Yay another Avon haul! I love when I get my shipment of Avon in, it's like Christmas every 2 weeks :)
This post has quite a few photos, like most of my Avon hauls do.

This week I bought a few new products and some older ones. I got one of their new lip tints, which I am not sure I'm going to like, it has a lot of glitter in it and it feels gritty on my lips. It's in the shade shimmer, guess the glitter is how they came up with the name.

Wish List Wednesday: June 13

This week my Wish List items are more in my price range and are items that I will be searching for in the stores! All 3 items are from NYC (New York Color) I absolutely love every singe product of theirs I have ever tried.

First up on my wish list is an item I will probably never get my hands on because it was from their Spring Limited edition City Sweets collection, and it is the City Duet Eyeshadow in Brighton Peach. I have not tried any of their eyeshadows,

Review: Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Invigorating Scrub

I have been loving my Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Invigorating Scrub! I was looking for a good exfoliant and this has been the perfect thing. This scrub is very thick right out of the tube, but once you apply it to your wet face it thins it out some. I feel like it has just the right amount of 'grit' to gently, but effectively cleanse my face. This scrub has a strong mint type smell to it, it reminds me of Icy Hot, but that's okay with me because I love the smell of mint.

June Birchbox

I received my June Birchbox the other day and wanted to share what came in it. I have not had a chance to try these products out enough to offer a review on them, but I will post a review of the products next month.

Up first the Balm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen. This is a two-in-one lip and cheek stain. It's a sheer gel formula that is supposed to deliver a subtle, long wearing flush. Full size retails fro $17.00

Nail of the Week

This week I just wanted something different, so I paired Wet N Wild's I Need a Refresh-Mint with Sally Hansen's Celeb City. I used China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat, then painted all my nails, except my ring finger, with I Need a Refresh-Mint. I painted my ringer finger with Celeb City. I then added a diagonal line of dots to each finger. And topped them off with NYC Grand Central Station, fast drying top coat. Super easy mani with a different look.

ELF Haul

First off if you don't know what ELF is, it's a great website to get inexpensive makeup and brushes from. You can also purchase ELF products in select Target and Kmart stores. Sometimes you fan get lucky and find them at dollar stores. Most of the products that I have bought from ELF I've liked, but there are some that I have not liked so much.

I have not ordered from ELF since sometime last year, and I noticed they were having a buy one get one free sale on their top selling items. I needed some more of the Makeup Mist and Set so I took advantage of this sell :) here are the items that I purchased:

1) 4 bottles of the Makeup Mist and Set spray.

Avon Haul Favorites and Fails

As you remember last week I had four new items in my Avon HaulEladia CZ Ring Set, Super Extend Extreme Mascara, Clearskin Pore Penetrating Invigorating Scrub and a True Color Duo in Gold Goddess. None of these items were fails to me (YAY). I did have an issue with the True Color Duo, it seems as though you have to use a lot of product to get the color to show on your eyes, but other than that, I love this duo! The Clearskin Scrub is amazing, it smells of mint and when you put it on your face you get the same feeling you get when you wear mint lip balm, except it's all over your face lol. I feel like this scrub gets my face super clean and it does not leave me with that tight dry feeling that some scrubs leave you with and it makes my face feel really soft and smooth. I'm really liking the Super Extend Extreme

Try it Again Tuesday: ELF Conditioning Lip Balm

I have been digging down in my makeup and using products that I have not used in a while. This week I've been re-trying the ELF Conditioning Lip Balm with SPF15 and I remembered why I quit using it in the first place. I have one in Peaceful Pink and one in Nice & Natural. I think these lip balms are a tad on the sticky side while they are on your finger,

May Birchbox Hits and Misses

I've had a chance to try out all of the products thoroughly that I received in my Birchbox last month. Which were the Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15, BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette Spray, Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 and the Kiehl's Abyssine Cream.

I really like the Tinted lip treatment, it moisturizes your lips while giving you the right amount of color to you lips. It also has a really nice fragrance to it, kind of smells sugary. I also like the packaging, it's made of hard plastic on the inside and the outside has a

Nail of the Week

This week I wanted something different so I used my Kiss Nail Dress in Gown. Love the concept of this product! It's just a strip of polish that you stick to your nail. Easiest way to do your nails :)

What did you wear on your nails this week?

Friday Favorites

Here are my favorites for this week :)

1. ELF Golden Bronzer. I feel like this gives my face just a hint of color with out looking all weird. I do wish that it didn't have shimmer in it though.
2. Physicians Formula Healthy Wear tinted moisturizer with SPF50. I love this stuff, it's super easy to apply, I just use my fingers. It lasts on my face all day and gives me good coverage.
3. My favorite fragrance this week has been Moonlight Path by Bath & Body Works. This is probably my favorite scent from there.
4. This week I have still been using my Wet n Wild Silent Treatment trio. It's such a great trio!
5. For my eye shadow base I have been using Avon's Cool Bliss eye shadow in Pebble Stone. This is kind of like a cream shadow and when you apply it to your eyes it leaves them feeling cool and refreshed. I think it's the perfect base for the Wet n Wild Silent Treatment Trio. Really makes the eye lid color pop.
6. Still loving my Mark Scanda-Lash mascara.
7. For my lips this week I have been loving my Wet n Wild Megashield lip color in Birthday Suit.

What were your favorites from this week?

Avon Haul Campaign 12

My Avon shipment finally came, so I can get this post up. Better late than never I guess :)

This campaign I only ordered four items. First up I got the Eladia CZ Ring Set, it is a beautiful 2 piece set. Love it already! Next I got the Super Extend Extreme Mascara, love the yellow tube it comes in, will let you know what I think about the product it's self next Thursday. I also got Clearskin Pore Penetrating Invigorating Scrub. I've been looking for something to exfoliate my skin, hopefully this will work. It smells like peppermint and I LOVE minty things :) Last but not least I got a True Color Duo, I love the quads and they recently came out with the duos so I thought I'd try those too. I got the Gold Goddess Duo, it's just as the name says 2 golden colors.

I will be trying these products out over the next week and come back on Thursday to find out which ones I liked and which ones I didn't.

 Kind of makes me wonder why it looks 'stringy' :/

Has a Golden incandescent look to it
