I took advantage of the buy get one 50% off on Maybelline the last time I went to Rite Aid. What I purchased is limited edition from the Maybelline Spring/Summer collection.

I recently went to the MAC counter at Nordstrom to pick up a few things I needed.
Pro Longwear Foundation in NC50, Eye Brows in Spiked, Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark Deep, Lipstick in Impassioned
I chose NC50 for the Pro Longwear Foundation because NW45 was too red on me. Using the Skinfinish Natural offers a nice balance so the NC50 doesn’t look too yellow when I’m wearing this foundation.
The MAC eyebrow pencil is my all time favorite brow pencil. I like the precision the skinny tip offers. Plus the pencil is self-sharpening.

I also did some recycling at the MAC counter. I got this lipstick for free since I turned in six empty containers.

This is how all of the products looked on me. 🙂
I actually purchased this kit for my youngest daughter. She wanted to flat iron her hair. I wanted something that would condition her hair really well. The Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Collection 3 Piece Starter Kit smells wonderful. It retails for $24.00 at Sephora.
The Ralph Lauren Big Pony Rollerball Set for women was on sale for $25.00 at Sephora. For that price I figured it was a good way to try out these fragrances.
The last thing I purchased was the Pierre hardy for NARS Collection nail polish set in Vertebra. This collection was inspired by Pierre Hardy’s Summer 2013 shoe collection. The nail polish set retails for $29.00 at Sephora.
I decided to treat myself to Coach this year for Mother’s Day. The only way I can afford Coach is by getting it from the online outlet Website.
Rihanna recently collaborated with MAC and came up with a remixed version of the Ruby Woo lipstick. On May 2, 2013, The RiRi Woo lipstick was available online for $15.00. Needless to say the lipstick sold out in three hours. RiRi Woo will be available again online in June.
RiRi Woo is described as a Retro Matte red. I must say I am so in love with this shade. 🙂 I do recommend applying a lip conditioner first.
I went to Kmart and noticed the Ardell lashes were still on sale for $2.69. I picked up a few more of the accent lashes. 🙂
I had to go to ULTA for something, but I can’t seem to remember what for. The ULTA store I visited changed the way they displayed their nail polishes. Needless to say I was a little distracted. Here are the polishes I purchased from China Glaze. 🙂
