Kmart Haul

I make it a habit to visit my local Kmart store after the Holidays. Aside from buying wrapping paper, I never know what other deals I may find. I bought this massaging pillow for $4.99. This will come in handy for me at work.


I found this scarf for $4.99. I’m going to have to hide the scarf from my youngest or I will never see it again. I also came across texting gloves for $1.99 each. They really work! The last things I bought were these hair accessories. I plan on wearing my natural hair more often and this will look cute. Not bad for $2.39 each.

A Closer Look: Naked Basics Palette from Urban Decay

When Urban Decay first released the Naked Basics Palette, I wasn’t sure if I was going to buy it. I already have the original Naked Palette and Naked 2 Palette. I didn’t see the point in purchasing the Naked Basics Palette. I did think about this palette having more matte colors though. My opinion changed once I visited my local ULTA and swatched the colors. Great color payoff and the shadows blend so nicely. The compact case with mirror is an extra bonus.

Whether you have the original Naked Palette or the Naked 2 Palette, the Naked Basics is a great addition. The matte eyeshadows work great with both palettes. The Naked Basics Palette retails for $27 and can be purchased at ULTA, Sephora, and the Urban Decay website

A Closer Look: Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup from Urban Decay

When Urban Decay first released the Naked Skin foundation, I was glad they included shades for women of color. My local ULTA store didn’t have the darker shades initially. I didn’t want to buy the foundation online either without finding my match. I tried the Naked Skin Foundation once the darker shades came in at ULTA. I was truly amazed at how the foundation blended into my skin. I could tell my complexion was even and the makeup looked really natural on me. More often than not I skip wearing concealer since the coverage of Naked Skin is buildable. To be honest I almost didn’t buy the Naked Skin Foundation because of the price but I am so glad I did.


My shade is 12.0

Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup retails for $38.00 at ULTA, Sephora and the Urban Decay website.
