Affordable Halloween Style

My youngest daughter Naomi and her friends decided to wear Halloween costumes today. They are all way past the age of trick or treating too. LOL! Buying a Halloween costume is almost like buying an outfit you’re only going to wear one time.

This is what Naomi wore. She called herself the Magical Mad Hatter.

Naomi Halloween Costume

  • The hat she is wearing is actually two hair accessories she borrowed from me. The bow tie is another hair accessory she borrowed.
  • The necklace is mine along with the red shirt.
  • The vest, black jeans, and boots are hers.
  • The cape is a long cardigan of mine.

Kmart Haul: Featuring L’Oreal



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

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. 🙂
