NOTD China Glaze For Audrey Swatch

This is probably the closest color to the trademark Tiffany Blue. I really love this color because it's opaque and the perfect blue! I got it for $6 on Amazon. 

Sonia Kashuk Pointed Blending Brush Review

At Target, once again i got another brush in the same week. This is the Pointed Blending brush so it can be more precise yet still blend. It's soft not that dense so it's good for putting shadow in the crease or blending. It was $4.79 at my Target. 

Victoria Secret Silky Eye Shadow (Velvet) in Bunny Swatch

To be honest, i originally got this just because of the name and also the fact it was 75% at the VS sale they're having! I also needed a highlight color so i took my chances and bought it. I'm not too familiar with the VS eyeshadows so i was guessing the velvet label was the texture/finish of the eyeshadow.

 Bunny is a matte cream shade with no sheen that UD's Virgin has. It's in a compact packaging and there's a label on the back of it.
 The box said for a more opaque finish use directly from your fingers.
Overall, i'm pleased since nothing can beat a $3 eyedshadow! i didn't see any other colors that interested me because i'm not really a color person haha.

Maybelline 24 hr Color Tattoo Bad to the Bronze Review/Swatch

 I got another one of the Color Tattoo Eyeshadows today! Bad to the Bronze is pretty much a bronze with shimmer. Like the other shadows in the collection they last for a long time but i'm not too sure about the 24 hr mark.

Tough as Taupe + Bold Gold Review/Swatch

Too Cool Review/Swatch + Size Comparison to Stila Smudge Pot

NOTD OPI ElePhantastic Pink Swatch

This is an OPI polish from the spring India collection a couple of years back! It's the prettiest pink i have worn my nails. It's more like a semi coral pink. I have three coats on just because i painted them unevenly but two coats is just fine. 

*sorry for the blurry picture

Makeup Organization/Organizing Makeup

 I decided to get more storage since my collection is growing quickly. I'm really in love with Target or something because all of the plastic containers are from target. This Makeup Organizer is in store for $8.99!
 I had this Sterilite small plastic 3 drawer for maybe a year and it was about $8
 I got this mirror today so i can do my makeup at my desk! it's a double sided but the magnification side is strange, it's more like a fish eye  magnification but i don't really mind since the normal side is perfectly fine. It was around $13.
I've been doing some early spring cleaning and i pretty much went through 10 trash bags from my closet and desk. My family is filled with pack rats so after 5 years of being in this house i decided i don't need most of the stuff i don't touch. I probably will eventually get the other vanity organizers because i love how they're clear and clean looking.

Maybellline Master Precise Ink Pen Liner Review/Swatch

 I ran out of my L'Oreal Liquid Liner so i decided to try something new and the packaging of this liner stood out to me.

 The tip is a very large and it's pretty much pen like haha if that wasn't obvious. When i drew with it it felt very precise! I think i might like this one better than my old eyeliner
The smaller swatch is when using just the tip but the bigger swatch is when applying more pressure. So pretty much you can control how thick you want your eyeliner to be. Also after it dries it will not smudge! I only saw this at Walmart.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eye Shadow Bold Gold + Tough As Taupe Review/Swatch

 So after a couple of days, all the colors started to disappear which was frustrating but luckily Walmart had most of the colors and only for $5.84 the cheapest yet! CVS had them for $7.39 and Target was $5.99

These colors are so so so pretty. I really want Back to the Bronze next. I think all of the 24 hour Tattoo Eye Shadows last a long time and they're all so pigmented! These work as a primer, base, eye shadow, and liner. I just hope they come out with more neutral shades like a nude and other colors and such!

Bad to the Bronze Review/Swatch

Too Cool Review/Swatch + Size Comparison to Stila Smudge Pot

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eye Shadow Too Cool Review/Swatch

 These eye shadows are pretty exciting after i heard that they're just as good as the MAC paint pots or even better. Nothing can beat the price at about $6-$7 dollars.
 I got these at target and most of the shades are not in stock so i decided to start with the white shade. This is perfect as a base for eye shadows!
 Their packaging is just like the Eye Studio Gel Liners! it's also very similar to Stila's Smudge Pots
 The size is similar but the smudge pot is shorter and more shallow.

I'm not sure if they last 24 hours but i know they last a full day's worth of wearing makeup. I really do not want to try this for 24 hours because your skin needs to breathe. The Color Tattoo Eyeshadows can be worn as a primer, base, eye shadow, or even an eyeliner. All the colors released are permanent.

Sonia Kashuk Large Eye Shadow Brush Review

I've decided to move up the make up brush ladder and got this brush. I don't have any large eye shadow brushes so i decided to get it. The only eye brushes i have are similar sized to each other are they aren't the best quality.

 I really like this brush because it covers most of the lid and it's flat and dense which is perfect for packing on a lid color! I think i might get a couple of more brushes before moving onto more expensive brushes.

 Sonia Kashuk is a brand exclusive to Target which means it's cheaper than other brands but it does not lose in quality! The brush was about $6.

Revlon Colorstay 16-Hour Eyeshadow Addictive Review/Swatch

This is part of the release of Revlon's Spring 2012 collection. I'm really loving these collections being release by many drugstore brands. I got this at target! Target has the new lines from Maybelline and Revlon but i only saw the nail polish from L'oreal. I got the color Addictive which was one of the neutral quads. There's about 8 quads to choose from ranging from neutrals, colors, and smokes.

The back will have a picture showing where you can place the colors if you want to follow it!

 The colors in this quad are mostly matte with some of them with a subtle shimmer or sheen so that is probably why they are very pigmented. I heard that some of the shades in other quads are more on the sheer side since they're more shimmery. So beware and look up swatches of the other quads!
This quad is the perfect everyday natural look for me and it's all in one quad so if you're ever in a rush this would be really handy. I think i might pick up more of these quads, probably a more smokey one for evening looks. :) The new collections can be found at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens and other drugstores.
