It's been a long time but I'm BACK!!!

It has been a year since I’ve posted on my blog or even attempted to make an YT video. I was on can hectic roller coaster ride called “Life”. Things have gotten a lot better and now that I am in a better place I decided that I should continue to do the things that I enjoy the most. I am still head over heels in love with all things beauty related. Have I been behaving myself when it comes to purchasing products? Hmm…  Well, kind of. I haven’t gone overboard but, I do look to see what’s on the clearance racks. You can find a lot of awesome things on there from makeup to clothing. I see a 70% off sale and I’m attracted to it like a bee to honey. So this is just my way of saying hey to all the blog followers. I’ll be back with FOTD, product reviews, and more. 

Pink Kisses….. MUAAAHHHH!!!!

Mini Haul/Product Review

I’ve really been behaving myself lately when it comes to cosmetics. I told myself “You will not purchase any more makeup unless you run out of something.” Sometimes, you have to give yourself the pep talk. It worked for a while until I continued to see the same Maybeline advertisement for Eyestudio Color Explosion. No matter if I was looking in a magazine or watching TV , it would always be there. I felt like it was calling me! So I finally gave into temptation and I purchased it. I am so in love with the Amethyst Ablaze palette or quad. I’m not sure what to call it. What lured me into it were the really pretty purples and the sparkly silver. I was star struck! I haven’t used it yet but once I do I will let you know my take on it. In addition  to that I purchased Maybeline Great Lash mascara, Sally Hension Crackle polish in Gold Rush and Violet, Essie Polish in Bubbly (not the exact name but I’m too lazy to get up and look), an ELF powder brush, brow gel and ELF tinted moisturizer that only cost me 75 cent! BINGO!!! 

Now on to the reviews (only 3):
Maybeline Great Lash: I love it!! This is my second go to mascara. I normally use The Falsies (Maybeline) all the time. To be honest, the only reason I purchased it was because of the pink and green package. I have a color obsession, especially with PINK!!!! 

IMO, the want is the perfect size. Also the formula isn’t as watery as The Falsies. It seemed like I dried instantly. I didn’t have to worry about blinking and being afraid that mascara would be on my eye lids, plus my lashes looked long and lovely! This product gets 10 pink kisses from me. 

ELF Tinted Moisturizer in Almond: This happened to be on sale and I didn’t even know it! Regular price $3 at the cash register $.75. My expression ^_^. This was the darkest shade that they had. It says that it for “medium to dark skin with yellow undertones”. It also has SPF 15 and Aloe Vera.
IMO, for the price it works really great. It glides on really smooth and I didn’t get that clogged pores feelings. This gets 9 pink kisses from me. 

ELF Flat Top Powder Brush: This brush is from their studio like which cost $3. For the price the brush is exceptionally soft and great quality. It gets the job down.  I didn’t experience any shedding after I washed it as well.  10 pink kisses from me.

Thanks for checking out my blog and listening to me rant on and on at times. LOL!
