SPRING: Jewelry Haul !

About a week ago I decide I should get rid of all my old jewelry & start fresh besides my last recent purchase. So of course I love Charlotte Russe jewelry……

These are some pieces I purchased a couple of days ago:

I have not worn big earrings since FOREVER I started wearing my stud (ball like) earrings and ever since then I just always picked them up to wear. When I tried the earrings on I felt so weird but I think I can get use to them again..

Image

Image

I love gold as you can tell…

Image

I love this piece, especially the gold & I just love the baby blue color complementing it..

Image

This piece is my favorite out of my entire purchase ! I cant really explain why but I love the tribal look it has..

Hope you guys like my jewelry haul !

My experience at Sephora vs MAC

A couple of months ago I started on my journey of wearing foundation. Since my skin started breaking out a few months ago & after getting rid of acne or what ever the case was I was left with marks. I once mentioned finding my right shade when foundation shopping was hard, so I decided to try the Kat Von D tattoo foundation because I really wanted coverage & I seen a lot of good reviews on her product. After finding out this product is being sold in Sephora I went to my local mall to have a “professional” help find my shade.

Image

 

I walked in and was not noticed at first, while my husband & I walked over to the Kat Von D section we were talking & he mentioned that I should let someone match the product to my skin because he didn’t want me to waste $34. So it was a guy working at the time and I asked if he could help me, I should have known something wasn’t right but I went with the flow. After picking up a light shade & a dark shade he mentioned the product has an orange undertone and he wasn’t sure if the brand had any colors that would look natural on me. Hmmmmmm…..so he put both colors on two separate spots on my face and blended both. I didn’t know how much he put on my face put I couldn’t see the lighter one but I saw the darker one, which was the one he told me I should go with. I couldn’t ask my husband so thinking to myself I was like why would I go with the darker one if I cant see the light shade (which means it blended well) So I finally decided he works here he knows what he is doing, so i brought it.

The next day I wanted to play in makeup & try out my new foundation OMG  I only used a little bit because reviews said a little goes a long way. But let me tell ya’ll I looked like an orange oompa loompa ! I was so MAD & was going off. After calming down I felt like

1. I shouldn’t have trusted him because his makeup was TRASH.

2. He didn’t even have me facing the mirror so I could see what he was doing

3. I have to be mad at myself to because I should have went with what I thought was best.

I also felt like he was just trying to make a sale and didn’t care about the customer.

NOW TO SOME BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE…

Yesterday I went to Mac because I follow an old classmate of mines on instagram & her makeup is always flawless. She told me she uses Mac foundation and she has oily skin, so she uses the one with a matte finish. I love a matte finish & her makeup looks great so I said what the heck I will give it a try.

 

I went in & it was only one lady working an probably about 6 other customers but one thing for sure is she acknowledged everyone letting them know she would get to them. When she finally got to me I asked for her help with finding my shade, she asked if I used their products before, and if I wanted her to complete my whole face or just a sample. At first I said my whole face but she had another customer who was doing the same & I couldn’t wait so I did a sample.

Image

She put two shades on me and they both looked great but instead of her just telling me to buy one. She gave me a sample of one & told me it should last a week, to try it out and see how I like it & if  I wanted to try the other one come back to get a sample or come in ask for her and she would do a complete face. My husband was pleased this time & said that was much better. She also mentioned the light shade could work for winter but since it’s gonna be summer soon she know everyone gets a tan and that I probably would go for the dark shade. But because I loved them both I may purchase them both for Winter & summer an if I have to mix I know it would come out great.

I walked out a happy customer even though I didn’t purchase yet but the experience was better and her makeup looked great.

I hope this wasn’t to long I just wanted to share two different experiences I had when it comes to buying higher end products and actually having a sale associate help you out.

Let me know some of your experiences you had.

Thanks

March Glam Bag / Drug store haul

So I just wanted to share with you guys my Ipsy bag for the month of March. I have not tried any of these products yet. I also wanted to share with you two drug store items I have purchased recently.

Starting off with Ipsy I received…

Image

I wasn’t to excited about receiving this because the last thing I received from this line I was not pleased at all. But I will try & let you guys know.

Image

I am very excited to try this ! I love soft/vintage pinks…..stay tuned.

Image

You can never have to many natural colors, so I def will be using this often.

Image

Blue eyeliner hmmm…will be new for me. I wonder how this would look with a natural eye look. We shall see.

Well those were all the goodies I have received for the month of March.

Now to my drug store haul….

So the first product I purchased was something recommended by a inspiring makeup artist I started following on Youtube & Twitter.

Image

Omg the best Primer I have purchased so far !! My skin is combination oily/dry. Wow I actually wore this primer alone with NO MAKEUP at all. Which was not my plan but after applying it an running around before starting my makeup I was shocked so I decided to go bare. I highly recommend this for people with oily skin ! Thank you AaliyahJay for recommending this !

Last thing I purchased was…

Image

I think I finally found my match ! Ugh foundation is so hard to deal with lol. But Hopefully I love it

Hope you guys enjoyed

Newest Skincare Routine

So I finally gave up on trying the natural way of making my own skin care products because it was to messy & I couldn’t take it anymore. After going back to my old skin care products that I have been using since forever I felt like it wasn’t giving me that same feel that it use to. So I think I finally found a routine I can stick to, to finally get my skin back to normal. I must say it has cleared up way better since the first time I discovered my problem.

So here are the products I am using…

Image

I only use this twice a week because that’s what was mentioned on the back of this product.

I purchased this from Target for $10, the application of this product is very smooth and it will leave your face feeling just as smooth. It does not tingle or burn it feels just right.

Image Next  I use this every single day right before I use the other face wash down below.

Image

Since using this I have notice my pores getting smaller. My skin has been a lot more smoother & I don’t know why I use both at the same time but it seems to be working for me so…

I also purchased these from target.

Pink grapefruit foaming scrub : $7.59

All-in-one acne control : $7.59

After getting my face all cleaned up just as I would use my witch hazel I switched it up & use

Image

I use this to basically try & get my color back from the black spots that I have. It really has been fading my black spots day to day. If I don’t get lazy.

Last but not least for my moisturizer I use

Image

I chose to use this one instead of the regular black soap because I use the Coconut Hibiscus lotion & I love it my skin is so soft I don’t have any problems with being ashy or having to re-apply throughout the day. So I decided to use it as a moisturizer.

I also purchased this from Target for $11.99

Hope this is helpful for anyone struggling to clear their skin, feel free to ask any questions.

Thanks have a wonderful day

Charlotte Russe, Forever21 & Target Haul

So for a while now I have been telling my hubby that I want to get rid of clothes that I don’t wear anymore & clothes that I cannot fit. So yesterday I decided to start with my closet & I got rid of a number of items, of course I had to go do a little shopping afterwards. When arriving to the mall I right away thought it was a bad idea because I was in so much pain. So I picked up a few things while I lasted.

First place I went into was Charlotte Russe. For a while I have not been a fan of Charlotte Russe because my style changes frequently, but one day a while back I spotted some shorts I was interested in….

Image

Image

These shorts are originally $24.99 & they had a sale, buy one get one for $10.

Next thing I picked up was some jewelry, which is something I do love getting from them. Who can beat 2 for $10.

I got all four pieces from the 2 for $10, so in all $20

Last but not least from Charlotte Russe I came across some fun casual shoes I can just slide in when I wanna look dressed down.

piclab (6)

These shoes were $12.50

When I got to the register I was informed it was HAPPY HOUR so after my total they took off $15 SWEET :)

Next stop was Forever21…I think I prefer shopping online from them

But first thing I got was

piclab (7)

These were 17.80

piclab (17)

$6.80 I purposely got it big.

Last two things I purchased were

piclab (18)

Both were $1.80 each (just some basic tshirts )

Last place I made it in before going home because I couldn’t take it anymore was Target

piclab (16)

$19.99

piclab (8)

$19.99

Last two things I purchased were some more basic tshirts.

piclab (15)

Both were knocked down from $8 to $5 each.

This was everything that I purchased hope you guys enjoy. I will have more fashion hauls, next time I will go shopping when I feel better.

Thanks
