NYX Box of Goodies Advent Calendar

NYX Holiday.jpg


I will admit this purchase was an impulse buy. I was at ULTA getting a few last minute gifts for my youngest. ULTA had marked down NYX gift boxes by 40%. When I saw the NYX Box of Goodies Advent Calendar I had to have it. I didn’t want to go home and regret not buying it.


The Advent Calendar contains 12 Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks and 12 Limited Edition Eye Shadows. These are deluxe sizes.



The regular price of the NYX Box of Goodies Advent Calendar was $49.99. With the 40% off  NYX and 20% off coupon from ULTA, this purchase was $23.99.

Mini Maybelline Haul from Rite Aid

What can I say, Maybelline does it again! I never thought I would be a fan of their lipsticks. When Maybelline released the Color Sensational® the Buffs I knew I would purchase at least two lipsticks.

These lipsticks are very pigmented and creamy.

I also purchased the Face Studio Master™ Glaze in Plums Up. I really love this cheek color. The color is very pigmented so a little goes a long way but the color is buildable. Goes on smoothly and blends so nicely.

Kmart Haul: Ardell Lash Sale Again


It seems the only time I buy false eyelashes is when they are on sale at Kmart. Once again the Ardell False Eyelashes were on sale for $2.69 each. I stocked up on a few more.

If I wanted to wear false eyelashes everyday it would be the Ardell #110.  These lashes are still my favorite. I get that natural full look with them.


I also purchased the Ardell #109 just to add more variety to my false eyelashes collection. I can still achieve that natural full look with these lashes.



I also noticed some hair accessories on clearance. I have really enjoyed wearing my natural hair thanks to finding cute accessories like these.
