hello everyone! i've missed y'all so much. i went with family to the USA for Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend for a little mini getaway. i was sooo looking forward to being away from work and all of that for just few days.. and i unfortunately spent quite a lot of money.. whoopsie.
since i purchased so many make-up items i decided to split it up into 2 parts so that this post wouldn't be too long or too boring for you guys to read. these items are all from K-Mart and 'The Dollar Tree' (strange, i know). also, i am in no way BRAGGING about buying any of these items, i am actually having buyers guilt at the moment because of what i spent.
Wet n' Wild "rose champagne glow" by Fergie $5.99
I have been seeing TONS of blog posts about the Fergie line by Wet n' Wild. all of the items looked so beautiful and it really took Wet n' Wild to a whole new level. my goal in the USA was to purchase items that aren't as easy to buy in Canada, so when i came across the wet n' wild stand at K-Mart i just had to have a look. this is a beautiful illuminating powder. i love the swirly-ness of the powder, it looks amazing. when swatched it is just a really nice champagne/pink colour.
E.L.F blush in "mellow mauve" $3.00
in Canada (well at least in my area) we don't have any e.l.f stands or displays at our stores, so we have to buy the products online, but i have seen E.L.F in dollar stores and Winners (oddly enough). but i found the e.l.f display at K-Mart, and since i love the products so much, i needed to pick up something. i wanted some plum toned blushers for Autumn so i seized the perfect opportunity to do so. unfortunately my camera didn't catch the exact colour of the blush, it is darker in person. and i have to say that i am obsessed with the packaging of this. it is so sleek, and comes with a mirror. for only $3.00 you can't go wrong with e.l.f.
Wet n' Wild Limited Edition coloricon eye shadow trio "a regular at the factory" $1.70
again, another product i have seen all over the blogging world. i couldn't find these limited edition wet n' wild eyeshadows in Canada, even though i'm sure you could find them at Wal-Mart or something.. anyways, this one was in the Clearance for a $1.70. i'm not even a huge fan of the colours of this, it's a little too out there for me, but i figured for Halloween or something i could work with it. it was so cheap that i just bought it without really thinking. oh well.
Maybelline 24 hr Colour Tattoos in "pomegranate punk" $7.00
i also wanted more berry toned eyeshadows for autumn, and at K-Mart their maybelline products were "buy one get one for 50% off," so i bought the colossal (which you'll see at the end) and this colour tattoo for the 50% off. i am obsessed with Maybelline's Colour tattoos, i think that they are amazing quality. i can't wait to play around with this shade, and i think it will look really nice on brown eyes.
e.l.f. Matte Lip Color in "Praline" and "Rich Red" $1.00
these were my big "dollar tree" purchases! i love going into a dollar store and end up finding decent brand items for really cheap. i have a few of these Matte Lip Colors already and i love them so much, and for a dollar, i'd be silly not to buy these. they aren't too matte where it dries out your lips or anything, they have a really nice formulation to them. they are really easy to apply because they are like a lip liner/lipstick in one, so you are really precise when applying these. love them!
Colossal "smoky eyes" instant volume mascara $7.00
and lastly, i bought this mascara because i had previously saw it on MacBarbie07's september favorites video, and thought that i should try this out, because -to be honest- i wasn't a huge fan of the original colossal mascara, and she said that this one was better. this one was the other item i purchased with my 24 hour color tattoo to get the 50% off deal. i can't wait to see how this one turns out!
alrighty guys, that was all of part 1 of my beauty haul from America, and then i'll be posting part 2 beauty haul, a fashion haul and a miscellaneous haul from the USA as well. so keep posted for those!
thanks for stopping by, little loves. xx
