Let the Holiday Shopping Season begin!
This past Friday I stopped by Sally Beauty Supply. Being a creature of habit I bought some China Glaze nail polishes. They always seem to have nice collections for the Holidays.
I bought the Dash of Dazzle and Touch of Twinkle sets. These sets were $7.99 each with my Sally Beauty Club Card.
(L-R) Mingle with Kringle, Bells Will Be Blinging, So Blue Without You
(L-R) Just Be-Claws, Be Merry, Be Bright, Santa Red My List
I also purchased some deep conditioner for my hair. I’ve added the Ion Repair Solutions Effective Care Treatment to my hair routine. I made a promise to myself that I would take better care of my hair. In the past my hair would break off during the cold weather months. I’ve made great progress this year and I want to retain my length. The Ion Repair Solutions Effective Care Treatment packs were 99 cents each.
Nail It! Magazine made its debut in 2013. This is the fifth issue I have purchased. I need to quit playing and subscribe to this magazine already.
There are step-by-step nail tutorials throughout the magazine. I really love that!
Nail It! touches on hair and skin.
Nail It! also covers makeup.
This is a great magazine whether you are a beginner or a professional. You get up to date information on nail trends too.

I visited Kmart this past weekend (no surprise there). I noticed some of the L’Oreal eyeshadows were marked down to $3.99. I also had three $1.00 off coupons I wanted to use too. In the past I have used the HiP eyeshadows which are very pigmented. I decided to try the 24HR Infallible eyeshadows. I have used Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadows. I wanted to see how the L’Oreal Infallible 24HR Eyeshadow would measure up.
The eyeshadows I purchased are: Bottomless Java, Smoldering Plum, Midnight Blue
(L-R) Bottomless Java, Smoldering Plum, Midnight Blue
At first glance the 24HR Infallible Eyeshadows are really pigmented and the color goes on smoothly. I had to use makeup remover to remove the swatches from my arm. Soap and water didn’t work.
Once again Crown Brush was on HauteLook. I’ve been curious about the brush cleaner from Crown Brush. In the past I have bought the brush cleaner from MAC. It only made sense to try the brush cleaner. The majority of my makeup brushes are from Crown Brush.
The Crown Brush cleaner was $6.50 for 4.0 fl.oz.
I also purchased the Duo Fiber Brush Set. This set was $12.00. These brushes are really soft. I can’t wait to play!

I visited my local Kmart today. The Ardell False Eyelashes are on sale for $2.69 again. There were also hair accessories on clearance for 10 cents each. I couldn’t pass that up.
It’s always nice to find really cute hair accessories.
Instead of buying the Ardell #110 lashes, I went with the #109 lashes again. I get a nice natural full look with these lashes. I also purchased the Ardell #102. Getting out of my comfort zone with it comes to false eyelashes.

I stopped by Target recently. That seems to be the only store where I can find the CoverGirl Queen Collection All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation in my shade. By the way, my shade is Spicy Brown.
I ended up buying a few more things too.
I wanted to try the Flamed Out Shadow Pencils. I chose Gold Flame and Melted Caramel Flame. CoverGirl released a new eyeliner. I bought the Ink It By Perfect Point Plus All Day Eye Pencil in Black Ink.

It’s no secret my fondness of Maybelline’s mascaras. I’ve been curious about the Flamed Out Max Volume Mascara from CoverGirl. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this mascara. It made my lashes thicker and longer with no clumps.

To stay on trend with the deep berry and wine lip colors for Fall, I chose Fine Wine lipstick from the Queen Collection.

After Halloween clearance doesn’t have to mean buying candy. This is what I found on clearance.
I don’t necessarily have to wait until next Halloween to wear these false eyelashes.
I already have a silver glitter nail polish. The eyeshadow and lipstick I could actually wear now.
I recently stopped by Macy’s to take advantage of the bonus that was being offered at the Clinique counter. To get the bonus you had to spend a minimum of $25.00.
I already needed more of the Clarifying Lotion 3. I also purchased the Dramatically Different Moisture Lotion for my youngest.
For the free 8-piece bonus you had the choice of Nudes or Violets. I chose Violets for myself.
