Collective Haul – Sephora, CVS, Sephora, Target, HauteLook, LUSH

So here is an overdue haul!! The last “haul” I did was back in March, when I did my Arizona haul. I’ve been trying hard to save money and not spend as much, and once the last of my giveaway prizes are bought, I will be putting myself on a spending ban. I’ve got some significant changes happening in the next couple months, and I need to save all the money I can! So here is a collective haul….which means it’s pretty much everything I’ve bought – beauty-wise – in the last 3 months! I do have a small haul I have to film from this past weekend when I was in Indiana for my uncle’s wedding, but then I believe that’s it for hauls for the next few months. So without further adieu, here you go! Let me know if you see anything you’d like me to review!

Vacation Haul Part 2: LUSH!

Like I posted previously, this haul is the 2nd part to my little shopping spree in Scottsdale, Arizona. I went out there to visit my best friend, so OF COURSE shopping was on one of our lists of things to do.

I raved about LUSH products to my best friend, thinking she knew ALL about them (I vaguely remember checking out LUSH with her once, a year or 2 before I became a LUSHaholic!). When I found out she had no idea what I was talking about, I told her I was dragging her to LUSH with me in Scottsdale whether she liked it or not. Luckily for me, she didn’t put up much of a fight! I had no plans on buying anything while I was there. I didn’t want to deal with LUSH products spilling/breaking/leaking ALL over my things in my suitcase. But when we walked in and saw it was a party day, my plans of being well-behaved in LUSH went out the window!

Anyway, this is what I got:

~ Butterball Bath Bomb – $3.95
~ Sakura Bath Bomb – $6.15
~ Sunny Side Bubble Bar – $6.15
~ Space Girl Bath Bomb – $4.95
~ Happy Blooming Bath Melt – $6.95
~ Lip Scrub in Sugar Lips – $8.95

So I’m going to be lazy for this post, and not post any pictures of the products lol. If you’re interested in seeing these items, check out my latest video:

I’ll talk to you all later! Hope you guys have a great weekend and I will try my best to get another video up by Sunday! 🙂

LUSH Easter Haul

Hi Everyone!

So I posted my LUSH Easter Haul on my channel tonight. I’m still not decided if I want to use this blog to go more in-depth on my reviews/hauls/whatevers, or if I want to do recaps. So we’ll just see where this goes!! Today, this will have to be a quick post. It’s late, and I still have a lot of cleaning to do!
It seems that in the past, LUSH has gone ALL OUT for most of the holidays. Rumor has it that in previous years there have been multiple “giant eggs” in other scents opposed to the only two scents released this year. I’m not complaining. I LOVE all of the products I picked up this year, and I’m looking forward to collecting more LUSH products as the year goes on!
Check out my YouTube channel for the review!

Hope you all enjoy and that everyone has a GREAT Easter!

My first HAUL entry, sort of…

Ok, so it’s really not considered a HAUL, but I was super excited about these couple items and wanted to share them with all of you!

Down the street from where I work is a used bookstore. I go in there from time to time when I’m looking for new books and don’t really feel like paying an arm and a leg for them (I mean, $30 for a book that ONLY comes in hardcover? No thank you!). Today I just happened to be in the mood to browse for new books, so I went down the street and started to peruse the shelves. I made my way towards the health and beauty section and to my excitement and surprise I found 2 books I have been dying to get.
The first book:
Making Faces by Kevyn Aucoin
The second book:
Face Forward by Kevyn Aucoin

These are 2 books that I have gotten a lot of great feedback about. Everyone I know that has read these have nothing but compliments. Josh (Petrilude), another YouTube beauty guru, recently posted a video on one of his most-asked questions; how he got started. He didn’t have a bunch of formal training or videos to follow, he self taught with books and experimenting. These 2 just happen to be on that list. As soon as I got home I started looking through them, and I am excited to read through and work on some of my techniques and learn some new things!
The last thing I got at this particular book store was a little journal to jot down my ideas and some information for my channel and my blog. Right now I have random pieces of paper everywhere – my car, my desk at work, my bathroom, and my desk at home. All of these scraps of paper have ideas written on them or information for when I begin filming more reviews and tutorials. I actually had no intention on buying a journal from there, but they were up in front and this one caught my eye!
Medium Wire-O Journal in Zebra Print by Piccadilly
How CUTE is that journal?! I’m kind of obsessed with zebra print, so I LOVE it! I’m excited about being able to use this to jot ideas and suggestions for all of you! I’m a little obsessive about organization (you’ll see this about me eventually, I’m sure!) so this little journal was perfect.
My final part of this “haul” IS actually related to makeup. I stopped by Ulta after my little adventure at the bookstore and FINALLY got my hands on NYX’s jumbo pencil in black bean. While I was there, I also bought the very last Runway Collection palette in Jazz Night. I haven’t used either of these yet, but I’m planning on playing around with them this weekend and get some ideas on doing a tutorial. Here are a few pictures:

Here is a picture of each of the colors in the Runway Collection: Jazz Night palette

And finally, swatches of each of the products without primer or a base
My overall opinion of this palette so far is that it’s a good buy! It’s about $10 for the palette, so you’re basically paying $1 per shadow. As far as pigmentation, some of the shadows are better than others, but for what you pay this is DEFINITELY a great buy. I can’t wait to create some looks for you guys!
And on that note, this “little” blog post has turned into a fairly big one, although I blame that on the pictures! 🙂 Hopefully I’ll have a tutorial up for you guys by next weekend – depending on how successful I am at getting the perfect lighting in here!! The lighting in my bathroom is GREAT and filming at my vanity would be perfect, except for the fact that I film at night and my 4 year old brother’s bedroom shares a wall with the part of my bathroom that my vanity is in – so no can do! Thanks for being patient guys! Have a great weekend and I’ll talk to you all soon!
