Mini Haul from Big Lots and Forever 21

These items were collected last week and were very inexpensive. If you like drugstore brand products like Revlon and Covergirl, check out your local Big Lots. They carry such brands from previous collections at a discounted price. The Big Lots near my house didn't have such a great selection, so I went to the next city and it was like hitting a jackpot! I got some generic facewipes for removing makeup for $1, Revlon Super Lustrous gloss in 110 Life's A Peach for $2, and Revlon 600 Clear Lipliner for $2.

From Forever 21 I picked up a Blush in Pink for $2.80. This blush is really pigmented and their packaging has improved quite a bit! It reminds me of the Jill Stuart blush packaging!!

I got this nail polish in Grey for $2.80, because it reminded me of MAC's On the Prowl from the Hello Kitty collection. That color is one of my favorite nail polishes to wear and I thought this might be a good dupe. Forever 21's Love & Beauty Grey polish is a couple shades darker, but nonetheless pretty darn close!

On the left is Love & Beauty Grey, and on the right is MAC On the Prowl.

Swatches on the gloss, and variations of the blush.  Enjoy!

Revlon Suede Collection Spotted at Rite-Aid

Revlon has their Suede Collection out!  I was at Rite-Aid the other day and spotted this!  They have new nail polishes, Color Stay lipsticks, and Super Lustrous lipsticks.  Sorry for the quality!  I only had my camera phone handy.  I believe they just set these out as you can see, the display is full, except for that one lipstick called Primrose missing...I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it even though its a very pretty dusty pink color.  If I do decide to keep it, I'll swatch it and let you know how I like it!

If anyone gets anything from this collection, let me know how you like the products!

Black Bag from CSNstores.com

About a month ago I was contacted by CSNstores.com and given the opportunity to review a product from their site.  I was given a $45 online gift certificate to shop their website.  They offer a variety of items- home decoration, luggage, shoes, office furniture, and more.  I shopped their bags and found this one in which you could carry two ways.  There is a set of larger handles and smaller handles as you can see from the above pictures.  I believe this bag ran no more than $35, my gift card took care of shipping and I received the bag within three days.  Kate, the CSNstores.com representative was really helpful and answered questions about items that I was interested in.

I really like the quality of the bag.  The material is better than the material used at one of those mainstream fashion stores like Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe.  This bag is really trendy especially with the stud detailing.  There was another bag that I was interested in, but they were all sold out!!  You should definitely check out the site.  They may not have a billion trendy bags to choose from, but they do have some amazing furniture and home decorations.  Thank you CSNstores.com for allowing me to review this product!

Rumor Has It...Sephora F&F Sale is this month...

So I'm sure most of you beauty lovers have heard the rumors that Sephora's F&F Sale is this month...supposedly October 21st/22nd to be exact.  So what is everyone planning on getting?  I was on Sephora and saw this REALLY cute tokidoki palette.

If you've tried their shadows, do you like them?  Let me know?

As for other products...I'm still on the fence over the Urban Decay Book of Shadows vol III since I have vol II and the alice box and the naked palette, all which i love dearly.  I probably use these shadows the most.

Maybe I'll get a few Dior lippies since those are always nice, and stock up on the Sephora Lash Plumper Mascara.

Let me know what you're adding to your lists!
