NYC Lip Sliders Tinted Lipbalm in SUGAR COATED

I've been looking for a reliable lip gloss or lip balm that I don't need to re-apply every often especially the kind of work I do plus its winter and its freezing cold! So I went to Walmart last night after work and browse the makeup aisle and this tinted lip balm I remember was one of the gurus in Youtube's monthly favorite. Just by looking at it you won't be attracted right away, but by having my Iphone with me I searched some of the Youtube's reviews and decided to give it a try. I was kinda hesitant because NYC's line of makeup usually is one of the drug store makeup's taken for granted. Actually this is the first product I bought from NYC together with the mosaic face powder and another scent which is the SUGAR RUSH

PRICE: $2.44 at Walmart

Weight : 9 g/ .32 oz

               last long- I applied this morning and its still on
               inexpensive compared to other  drug store brand
               moisturizes my lips more than my EOS lip balm
               not too sugary smell
               light scent
               its opaque but buildable
               packaging is cute, slides all the way
               its my favorite now!

               non hygienic needs to use a lip brush
               this shade is to sheer on my natural lip color
               it has paraben

 This is a light pinkish color. On my lip I applied 2 times and I felt that its already moisturized upon application. People that are sensitive to strong scent like me will like it. Over all I'm gonna buy this again if I ran out. This is my favorite now!

That's how sheer it is, but IMO, it creates a natural lip color for just couple application. If you visit HolyAnnaeree blog on the left side of my bar, she said its a dupe of MAC's BOY BAIT cremesheen....

I know for sure that this is my favorite now, my EOS lip balm will sit for awhile, what's your favorite lip balm this kind of weather?

Wet N Wild coloricon single eyeshadow

I got this eyeshadow in RiteAide when they were having a 40% sale several days ago. I decided to get KITTEN, NUTTY, ENVY and PENNY. I got this for $1.19 a piece! Anyway sad to say because of rushing too much and procastinating before Christmas I ended up breaking the ENVY! 

            creamy, silky, pigmented 
            doesn't break me out
            color pay off is awesome
            lots of this eyeshadow are dupe of Nars
            long lasting with eyeshadow primer on
            with just one swipe the color is visible
            wearable color, can be an everyday look

CONS: they should have more shades to choose from
             addicting! haha

This is my favorite among all the single eyeshadow, perfect for this holiday and for everyday look. Ever since I got this, I've been using it constantly. Here's the swatch below

It has like a golden undertone, this is what it exactly how it show up on your skin.....

Isn't that pretty? Guess what? I read somewhere that you can use it as blush, I tried and wow, amazing look! yey!

The famous NUTTY shade, its gorgeous color, its a taupe shade! Swatch below

Just one swipe on this swatch, if you want it darker why not, get that taupey color you want!

If you love purples like me, you gotta have this baby!

One swipe only, make it even more darker if you want to......

                                       (image is from Makeup Alley) mine is broken

                                                               Swatch below

 I swiped 2 times and it gives this kind of shade, I wear this at work today with my greens  and I got a compliment :)

Second try of Olay

After Christmas, I went out and it so happen that its my day off so I wander around couple of store to just see anything interesting to try and of course its gonna be a 50% to 75% off from the original price. Went to Walmart and saw this gift pack of 50% off. I tried one Olay moisturizer before and so far  I didn't break out so why not because my Clinique Moisturizer is almost out.

I think this is a good deal. I know that for sure because Olay moisturizers alone are 25 bucks or more each and for this pack I got  a bit of everything. Its $32 value but got only for $10 yay!

And its MADE IN USA so its a plus! Almost you buy around here in USA is freakin made in China which is a total disappointment!

Happy Shopping with good bargains!

L. A. Girl nail polish in Addict

This is my christmas nail polish! L. A. Girl I guess is under LA colors not sure though. I used 2 coat and finish it up with my Sally Hansen Insta Dri as usual.

I bought it for $2.99 in Fred Meyers. Its pigmented, the color is bold maybe because its red though. It has some glitters in it so its perfect for the holiday. I wear this at grandmas for christmas and the next day at my mother in law's celebration. Mind to share what you wear on Christmas?

China Glaze in Spontaneous

It's my long time favorite shade of China Glaze, spontaneous! I love love this shade. I did 2 coat of this one and for my top coat is Sally Hansen Insta- Dri. I'm not using Seche Vite anymore because it does rip off easily after a day or two.

From Bath & Body Works

I was shopping for Christmas present and came across bath and body works again. Can't resist this goodies especially if they are cheap. A buck each isn't bad at all so I got 6 more pocketbac added to the 5 I had last time. I have 3 cupcakes in red velvet,strawberry and lemon glaze. I decided to get the Winter Candy Apple, I love this one, I have a hand soap in my bathroom and smells awesome. The fresh lime basil and Comet's ginger mint smells good too!

I got this signature collection of lotions with the same price, a buck each and 2 ounces per bottle. They are Bali Mango, Hawaii coconut and Fiji Passion Fruit. I can't decide which variant is my fave because they all smell good. Do you have any favorites? Let me know

From RiteAid

Rite Aide is having 40% off on Maybelline products and Wet N Wild cosmetics so I went there and grab some goodies. Here's what I got:

                                6 eyeshadow palette in LUST and VANITY
                                Mega Eyes creme eyeliner in Black
                                single eyeshadow in Kitten and Envy
                                lippie in Think Pink(901B)
                                Maybelline Dream Smooth mousse

I started using them even before posting this! Can't wait!

Bath and Body Works PocketBac

I saw these little cuties from my co worker one time and I was surprised how handy they are especially at work that we need to sanitize as often as possible. On my day off I was glad I found time to go to the mall with my friend, so got this for $5 for 5. Its an ounces each tube with different scents. I didn't really like the Holiday Edition, but maybe because I squirt lots of body spray on my palm already and didn't have the chance to smell each of them, oh well maybe next time, I'll check on the other variants. Its only 68% alcohol though so don't rely on it as an antibacterial, what I do is I wash my hand and squirt a lil bit and your hands smell like heaven. They sell the holder for $.50 each, my favorite among the 5 I grab is midnight pomegranate!
