These are all of the beauty-related purchases I’ve made in the past three weeks.
I grabbed a few more of those Nicka K HD eyeshadows from the beauty supply store. At $1.49 a piece I don’t feel too guilty buying one or two per week. I also spotted some new Nicka K/Absolute 12-pan eyeshadow palettes for $1.99 and I couldn’t resist the blues & greens in the one I ended up choosing. Lastly, I bought a 99 cent Nicka K lipstick in Natural.
I made a special trip to the mall — which I rarely visit because I hate dealing with the crowds — because I’ve been curious about those Hot Topic blushes that Tao (iamgrape1119) raved about on her blog and You Tube video. As she mentioned, they were on clearance for $0.98 each (regularly $5.99) and they’re super pigmented. I’ve already tried the Orange blush and I can see it lasting for the rest of my life. With this blush you seriously need to use a featherlight touch because a little definitely goes a long way. I was so impressed I went back to get some more but they were already sold out of the Red and Candy Pink blushes, so I only managed to score the Hot Pink which is fine with me because it looks gorgeous as well. BTW: I tossed the brush that came with the Orange blush because it was super scratchy and I intend to do the same with the Hot Pink brush.
At the Dollar Tree, I was so happy to find a small expandable file folder. I’ve been looking for something to keep my coupons in and this accordion style folder is perfect. Now I can separate my grocery coupons from my beauty coupons, and subdivide my beauty coupons in more specific categories (hair, makeup, skincare). The folder is super light and made of plastic so it’ll take up hardly any room in my purse and it’ll be durable and easy to clean, too. Great purchase for $1! I may go back and get a couple more.
But the purchase I’m the most excited about is the Limited Edition wet n wild Gilded Age trio! Yes, that’s right, I finally found it at Duane Reade. It was the last one in the display so I had to get it. It was fate!
Swatches of all my goodies to come in the next few days so stay tuned!
P.S. While I was at the Dollar Tree I spotted a bunch of N.Y.C. Loose Face Powders and e.l.f. Studio Blush in Berry Merry, so if you’re interested you may want to head on over there before they’re all gone. I know a lot of people like that face powder for setting makeup.
