HAUL – ELF, L’Oréal + MORE! 

I’ve got a quick haul today of some goodies that I recently picked up! I hit an awesome sale at Walgreens (buy one get one 50% on L’Oréal plus $7 worth of coupons on eye and face products as well as a couple of items marked down on clearance!) and I placed an order on ELF’s website (my first order from their website actually!) and I also have a couple of random things I picked up from Target. I’m super excited about all of these new goodies, so let’s go ahead and jump into what I got! 

L’Oréal Butterfly Sculpt Mascara 


This mascara is so unique, but it really does build up so much volume and length! The Want only has bristles on one side so you can really comb through your lashes with this.

L’Oréal Magic BB Cream 


This used to be my holy grail BB Cream, so I thought I would pick it up again for spring and summer and give it another go.

L’Oréal Lumi Highlighter “Ice”

I picked up this highlight because it was marked down from $12.99 to $6.49 and I also had a $2 off coupon (so I totally got this $13 highlight for $4.50!!!). This is such a beautiful color and it looks awesome on my pale skin!

L’Oréal Infalliable Shadow “Amber Rush”


This single shadow has been on my wishlist for a long time, and it’s absolutely STUNNING! I got this half off and had a $2 coupon, so it went from $8.99 down to $2.49!! I absolutely LOVE this shade, and this is going to be a go-to for me.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes

Confession time: I’ve become super lazy about taking my makeup off. Most nights, I would rather sleep in my makeup than get up and hunt down my makeup remover cloth, get it wet, and scrub my makeup off. I decided that I wanted to get a pack of makeup wipes for nights that I just don’t want to bother (most nights let’s be real) so I could keep them at my bedside table and grab them before falling asleep (no more excuses if they’re sitting right there).  I picked up some of these Simple wipes because I remember really liking them and long story short, I’m so glad I decided to get a pack of these because they’re awesome! I’ve been loving how easily these take off my makeup and they make my skin feel so clean and wonderful.

Wet n Wild Shadow “Brûlée” 


I picked up yet another one of Wet n Wild’s single shadows in the shade Brule. This is a perfect skin color for me, and I love to use this to set my eyeshadow primer every single day so that the other shadows blend easier (it only makes sense that powder eyeshadow would blend better when put on top of powder rather than laid onto the sticky primer directly). This is such a buttery shadow and I’ve purchased it probably 3 or 4 different times over the years.

ELF Lip Exfoliator “Coconut”


I picked up the ELF Lip exfoliator because I’ve heard so many good things about it over the years and I really wanted to try it out! I love how convenient it is in the lipstick tube so that you don’t have to reach into a little pot and dig out the product with your fingers. 

ELF Selfie Ready Foundation Blurring Brush


My favorite ELF foundation brush is starting to get really ratty looking, so I figured I would pick up a new one and I decided to try out one from the Selfie Ready line. 

ELF Eyebrow Duo Brush


I’ve been wanting the Anastasia dual ended eyebrow brush, so when I saw that ELF had a dupe for it, I immediately went online and ordered it. 

  

I hope you enjoyed seeing my quick little haul today! Stay tuned for upcoming favorites posts to hear more about some of these items. Let me know if there’s anything in particular that you want to see a full review post on! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you next time!

Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick Review

Spoiler alert for the review: I’m absolutely head over heels in love with this lipstick. I like it so much that I actually decided that it needed its very own review post so I can rave about it in paragraphs. If this post doesn’t convince you to spend the $4.99 on this lipstick, I don’t know what will, so let’s get into it!


To start off with the basics, I picked this up at Target for $4.99 after hearing several different YouTubers raving about it. I got the shade “Rebel Rose” (because it’s the one Jessica Braun wears and I adore her YouTube channel) and upon first application, it was a lot deeper of a color than I was anticipating.

The first time I wore this, I had it on for about 2 hours just to test out if it gave me the dry crusty looking lips or the “butthole lips” and I was very excited that it didn’t! While this does show the vertical lines on my lips, it doesn’t emphasize them like a lot of other liquid lipsticks tend to do (looking at you NYX Lip Lingerie).

I wore this lipstick again the following day for about 4 hours when we went over to my in-law’s for dinner. We got done eating and I was SHOCKED when I looked in the mirror and the lipstick hadn’t worn off AT ALL during the meal!! It still felt comfortable on my lips but hadn’t budged through talking, laughing, eating, and drinking. It passed the test and it was time to wear it to work.

The first day I wore this to work it was only on for about another 4 hours because I had a burger for lunch that day and with all of the grease, the lipstick wore off. But the incredible thing about it was how gracefully it wore off. This didn’t smudge or give me a lip line where any normal lipstick would have clung to the rim of my lips. This lipstick faded so gracefully that it looked like I hadn’t even been wearing any lipstick at all. For me, I would MUCH rather have a lipstick fade this way than cling to my lips and look patchy.

I wore this lipstick to work for 8 HOURS today. I wore it all through lunch and drinking out of a straw all day long. This still looked just as good when I went home as it had when I applied it that morning (and I may or may not have taken a 2 hour nap bringing the total wear time to almost 12 hours by the time I removed the lipstick).

To sum it up, this is an incredible liquid lipstick at an even more incredible price. I’m going to buy more colors asap (and probably a backup of this shade) because I’m just absolutely SHOCKED at how good this is. If you want to see this lipstick in action, go check out Tati’s review on YouTube to see just how long this lasts (and how shocked everyone was when she told them it was a $5 lipstick from Wet n Wild).

Thank you guys so much for stopping by my blog today!! Let me know in a comment down below if you’ve tried these lipsticks and what you think of them. As always, I’ll see you next time!

Wet n Wild One Step Wonder Gel Nail Polish Review! 

Today I’m going to chat with you about a nail polish that I recently picked up at Target. I had a dollar store polish from L.A. Colors that I absolutely loved the color of, but the formula chipped super easily and I wanted to replace it with a more expensive, better quality polish of the same shade. I looked all over the nail polish isle and compared shades from Essie and OPI and couldn’t find a close enough match. I was going to call it quits until I saw this nail polish peeking out from the bottom shelf in the Wet n Wild isle! I grabbed it, and the rest is history.


When I first applied this polish, I was honestly SHOCKED at how pigmented it was. I only needed one coat to get full coverage on my nails, and even when I paint with Butter London polishes I have to go over the nail with at least two coats.


I also loved the shape of the brush, and it really applied polish to my whole nail in just one swipe.

I topped the polish with my Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat (review post right here) and was on my way.

This polish lasted about 5 days on me before I finally took it off to try out another polish. If you’re a nail polish fan, you’ll know how hard it is to find nail polish that lasts more than just a couple of days before you have to redo your nails (I will say that a little bit of wear on the tips of the nails is pretty normal, so 5 days of no chipping doesn’t actually mean that there were absolutely no chips).

I would definitely say that I highly recommend checking out these polishes, especially because they’re only $4 each!! This wore just as well as my OPI polishes do, and I’m so excited to go pick up some more colors.
