Beauty Bandit: Wet n’ Wild Kohl Eyeliner

 

When I found out that they brought this kohl eyeliner at my local Dollar store for $1.50,  I made sure that this made this way to my shopping cart.

This set is definitely a steal!¬†What I really like about this eyeliner¬†is it’s¬†super pigmented. It’s¬†as vibrant as the actual pencil¬†is. Available in nine color icon shades at selected drugstores, Walmart, Target and online.

Wet n’ Wild is a cruelty free drugstore brand and if you’re animal conscious person, look for Wet n Wild products. Make sure to check the bunny logo¬†behind the packaging when you shop.

This¬†pencil has really good staying power and won’t budge that sometimes it’s a pain taking them off.¬†You would really need a good MAKEUP REMOVER because soap and water just won’t cut it

The Baby’s Got Black¬†eyeliner is excellent for more gothic¬†look or you just want that pop of¬†Black¬†in your eyes. They’re good by itself for those lazy days or paired up with your favorite eyeshadow combinations. Look picture below.

The eyeliners are very soft and has a creamy formula, but surprisingly, it doesn’t smudge or budge. Also, since the eyeliners are soft and creamy, application is easy because it just glides. Perfect to use for tight line.

It’s so affordable, pigmented, and stays on all day! The pencil doesn’t need to be sharpened too often and it’s huge! Definitely recommend.

What was YOUR first wet n’ wild eyeliner color? |I love to hear your comments.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read.

Schnapps Out Of It! OPI Nail Polish

 

OPI Nail POlish

Today, I’m going to do one more Dollar store review on the OPI Nail Polish I picked up recently. I’ve put a link here if you missed the¬†previous post¬†(full review).

I’ll be starting my holiday wish¬†list soon and to¬†warm up the holiday¬†spirit,¬†I’m jumping into a intermediary nail polish color first. A shade which is not to bright or bold red yet ūüėČ

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had a drugstore brand OPI Nail Polish that I was in LOVE with. I bought this by eye for the color and it was perfect! The shade to review is this beautiful.  Schnapps Out Of It by OPI! 

For $3.00 at Dollar Store instead of $9.00 at a drugstore, I’m definitely loving the shade and the price lol! An epic deal, if you asked me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a brown/peachy/rosy color that’s almost a creme finish, with just a tiny bit of pearliness to it. To me, it looks like a pretty Terracotta shade which I really like. Net wt: 0.5 fl oz in a staple glass OPI bottle. I feel¬†that it¬†applies easily and has good opacity. It¬†goes¬†completely opaque when it’s¬†in 1-2 coats¬†and it¬†dried easily and is not streaky.¬†The formula applies evenly and wears well which is a big plus if you are rough on your hands. It lasts about 4-5¬†days on me (since I’m very hard on my nails) so¬†I was well pleased.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s a great color, but some might find it too mature or not the classic red for the Holiday but I want to try a warm up¬†color for the season and “Just because …”. Glad to report in this¬†review that I’ve been wearing OPI nail polish the past few times and everytime I wear¬†it, I’m always reminded of how much I like this polish. ūüôā

opi nail polish nagelock

Up closed picture of the tip applicator. It picked up the formula nicely and I’m going to mention it again, easy to blend.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One coat of the nail polish and you can immediately see how opaque it was without top coat.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The color is very neutral and can be worn at the office and anywhere without screaming ” I’m wearing nail polish!!”… It’s a good option if one is tired of wearing red or nude.¬†It literally goes with everything! I fully recommend this product. As for me,¬†I’ll totally repurchase this OPI nail polish again!

Which color nail polish are you rocking this Holiday? I love to hear your comments below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Stay Beautiful!

BB Cream/Tinted Cream From Dollar Store Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I picked up this BB¬†cream from the Dollar store a few months ago¬†for product review. I was intrigued to try this product especially since it was from the Dollar store. I love trying out beauty products and I took the plunged to risk it. I wasn’t expecting anything great from this BB cream but boy what I wronged.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have been using it religiously since last¬†summer¬†and it even was one of my favorite. It’s still going strong. Anyways, I have used it for a decent amount of time and I think I’m in position to give my opinions and share my experience with you guys on this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This 2 in 1 Tinted Cream or BB Cream comes in a squeeze tube packaging with net wt: 1.7 fl oz. I got mine in Medium shade and I somehow noticed the color to be a bit lighter for my skin tone especially in summer and would be great for fall. My skin gets paler as the season changed. Has any of you had the same experience?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Like many BB¬†creams that I had used in the past, this product offers similar end results as a BB cream should be. It’s moisturizing, easy to blend, lightweight and hide blemishes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This cream could be layered for medium coverage without looking cakey or flaky. I’ve been wearing it for a while and today and not having any breakouts.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The method I use with most of the BB cream I had is by using my fingers to pat the cream and then gently applying the product with feather light pressure and blend them evenly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This BB cream gives a soft and nice dewy finish which I really like. Another pro is that it makes your skin feels so smooth and moisturizing. So yay for that!

I’m really satisfied with the results hence my conclusion is –¬†I must say this BB¬†cream is now¬†my absolute favorite!! I’m not saying this because it’s¬†for $1.25 but I was surprisingly impressed with the quality. From my understanding, not all Dollar store has them, so it could be a rare find.¬†You really have to try it if you happened to stumble upon¬†one.¬†Try it and do let me know in the comment section if it worked or not

What products would you pick from your Dollar store?

Thank you for reading.

Dollar Store Beauty Haul

It’s officially fall! Hurrah! The season most of you have been waiting for is here. Pumpkin spice, darker days, cool weather, apple pickings, halloween and new fall makeup collection for us to be excited about.

Since it was a gorgeous weekend, I decided to check out if there were any new makeup products worth picking up at the Dollar Store. So with less than $15.00, I checked out with 5 products in my bag. Continue reading if you guys like to see what I got.

dollar tree beauty haul

From left to right are the Eyeshadow Brushes by Lori False Eyelashes and Quad Blushes by Mariposa and lastly Eyeshadows by Almay. 

With just $2.50 each for this Almay Pure Blends Single Eyeshadow¬†which was¬†freaking drawing me to it. First seeing Almay in this Dollar store and like children “Pokemon” I’ve gotta collect them all. ūüėõ So, I did picked the shades in 245 Lavender and in 240 Sage. Net wt: 0.09 oz and it claimed to be hypoallergenic with 98.2% natural and I’m all good with¬†that. Super excited to do swatches right away. Oh wow! ¬†It’s super pigmented shadow and I love how¬†smooth it was. The packaging reminds me of the Balm signature packaging – comes in¬†a sturdy hard cardboard box with a magnetic closure just like the Instain Blushes for¬†an example. Very cool packaging! I’ll share more of the color swatches and review in my next post. So, stay tuned.

mariposa blushes

Mariposa is a generic name which I think¬†can only be found¬†at the Dollar store but I could be wrong. Let me know if you’ve seen this brand at other stores or locations near you? This is a super huge compact blush I’ve ever seen. It’s enormous and was¬†as big my hand open wide. So you could imagine the size. Another bonus point is that it cost $2.50 only and great value for money. Unbelievably good price for such a generous formula in it. It claims to be Not Tested On Animals. So, yay for that! ūüôā

You’ll get¬†four beautiful Blush by Mariposa in this compact disc. There’s Pink, Plum, Peachy Coral and Neutral Mauve. Frankly, I don’t have high expectation on Dollar store products but this blush is mind blowing. The color payoff is insanely pigmented and also its true to the pan. I believe there is another palette for pale to light skin typed but this one has all¬†medium shades perfect for this fall season.

mariposa falsies

Have I mentioned that I’m now obsessed with falsies? Many of you know that I’ve never tried a falsies before and was always afraid to wear them. I’m not sure what makes me changed my mind to try but here I am with more false eyelashes to practice on. Honestly, after my first experience with false lashes my perception of wearing a falsies changed completely. I really enjoyed this new love. So,¬†I got 5 pairs of False Eyelashes by Mariposa for $3.00 a packet which is a good deal for a starter¬†on falsies.

lori blushes

Last but not least is the Brushes by Lori. I picked the Angled brush and Eyeshadow brush.¬†I like the texture of these¬†brushes. It’s soft and very easy to¬†work on. For only $1.50 each I’m pretty¬†satisfied¬†with the quality given the low price.

That’s it for this month’s Dollar Store Beauty Haul and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it. I’ll definitely try and the eyeshadows and blushes to give you a full review in my upcoming post to including color swatches.

So until next time, stay beautiful and have a great day!

What is your favorite false eyelashes and if you are to recommend it to your bff which brand would you suggest?

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Sinful Color Nail Polish

 

DSC03422

Summer has arrived and who is excited to brighten up their nails to go with open toe sandals, flip flops and let your favorite bright neon color nail polish shine this summer?

DSC03427

Recently, I picked this nail polish by¬†Sinful Colors in Anchors Away. It’s a bright cantaloupe¬†shade which I find it cheerful. You can always choose a neon lime, lemon yellow to metallic touch or to the classic tan and pinks.

I’m picking a comment from my Question Tuesday two weeks ago¬†by my¬†beauty friend, Stash Matters who mentioned in her comment that Sinful Colors is her¬†favorite below $1.99 drugstore product. So, if you haven’t check on her blog, please head over after reading this. She has a lovely blog and friendly ūüôā

DSC03425

There are over 100 beautiful shades to choose on their website and for only $1.50 a bottle at Dollar Store, what can possibly go wrong! Sinful Colors nail polish is also available at Target, Walgreen, Rite Aid, Rexall and several Canadian drugstores.

DSC03429

The nail polish comes in a cute little glass bottle with a decent amount of formula. Net wt: 0.5 fl oz. I find that the texture is a little thicker and it drags as I applied them. I’m not able to do a even paint with only one coat.

DSC04232

This image shows application with one coat and it looks opaque with second coating below. I decided to put a top coat to prevent any chippings.

DSC04238

I¬†notice that this formula takes a bit longer to dry up and you have to wait until it’s completely dry before going for second coat.

Overall, they quality is average for a drugstore brand and for the price, I think it’s a decent purchase. I’ve been wearing them for a few days already and the color is still looking good except with one or two chip. I guess, I’ll be removing them off tonight but will wear it again when I go to the pool ūüėõ

So, as usual thank you very much for reading.

Friday Beauty Haul: Dollar Store Haul

I remember when¬†I first started my beauty blog, I used to do my beauty haul on Friday and if you have been following my posts you know what I’m talking about. But for those of you who are new here, feel free to read my previous Friday Beauty Hauls. But anyways, long story short,¬†I decided to do¬†a Friday Beauty Haul every once a month. I’ll share with you what I pick¬†from the drugstores, Walmart and Dollar Stores etc…¬†If you have any drugstore makeup products that you like me to¬†do a review on, just leave comment below.

So, for this week I’ll start with my¬†Dollar Store Beauty Haul. I got these last week but I just couldn’t find the time to do it until last night. Ya, I’m obsessed with makeup and I just pick and pick more of the makeup products and they’re piling up as high as an anthill.

Anyways, long story short. Today’ I’m going to do a haul and a¬†first impression at the same time. So, let’s get rolling:-

Oh, yes remember that all the items are all under $3.00 mark.

dollar store haul

I got a Top Coat by Revlon for $2, Eos lip balm for $3 and a gift set bag for $3 and inside this bag, we have Eye Define Pencil, Lip d’ovotion and an Eyeshadow Box all from Bonne Bell.

It’s like $1 each per item not counting the labor for the bag and that’s a great deal. Yipee!!! I love great sale and deals. Every dollar I save adds up and I got to spend on another item the next time¬†round. That’s saving too according to my own interpretation¬†(giggling).

Believe it or not, you can find some good products¬†especially drugstore items¬†at Dollar store or Dollar tree store nowadays. It’s convenient and cheap. You pay less at Dollar store than at a drugstore with similar¬†products. Don’t get me wrong, I still love¬†shopping at the drugstore but it makes more sense to shop at Dollar Store¬†especially if I’m¬†on a budget spend.

bonne belle kit

I’m excited to open this Eyeshadow box by Bonne Bell¬†in Cafe Classics. I’m pretty sure that the items are¬†sold separately at the drugstore or Bonne Bell Cosmetics website but in this case it happened to be packed as a¬†gift set.

This is a pretty cafe shades that have shimmery and pearly finish. The texture is smooth and it has beautiful pigmentation. I did a color swatch on bare arm- meaning without primer on. The instruction on the website says that you can apply using dry or wet application.

neutral eye look

These shadows are easy to blend and I really like the appearance I get using all the shadows from this shadowbox. If you love shimmery eyeshadow then this could be another drugstore brand  to look for. The shadow pan is descent in size and it comes with 2 cute sponge brush. It comes in a plastic packaging which you can stash in your purse or jeans pocket.

So here is the finish look. I really enjoy playing with the colors and for this look I used dry application and without eye primer. The shadows stays on nicely and long wearing .

eye define pencil

Next in the bag is the Eye Define Liner Pencil in Espresso Brown. There are 5 shades for color options. I have Bonne Bell eyeliner in the past and have always love how smooth and easy it glide on like a skyglider. The formula is creamy and it doesn’t drag or skip. I like it ūüėÄ

lipvotion

Okay, this is a fun new¬†Lipd’ovotion by Bonne Bell.¬†This comes with a¬†twist-top applicator on one end and the brush the opposite end. I personally think that this packaging is genius.¬†I love the idea of having a lip brush with a lip color together. ¬†So easy to apply the lip gloss with much precision.

By the way, its available in 5¬†shimmery¬†shades that fit any outfits. This clear¬†shade ¬†lipd’ovotion smells like caramel. Yummy! The downside for me is the formula. I feel that is a little bit¬†sticky or tacky and¬†if you dislike¬†sticky lip gloss¬†then you’re not going to like this one either. I’ll have to pass on this one even though I really like the packaging. It’s just that this¬†sticky formula isn’t something I’ll reach for. So, I’ll not repurchase this again.

eos lip balm

Eos Lip balm¬†in Sweet Mint. It’s 100% natural and 95% organic. This is my favorite¬†scented lip balm. It smells so good and it’s so so smooth. My lips feels so smooth and moist and I can feel the minty sensation on my lips. It’s not gunky or sticky at all. It has 7 different minty scents to choose¬†and it’s available at Walmart and all drugstores.

I love the super adorable “kinder egg” packaging. The rounded top formula reminds me of the tropical hairy fruit in Asia¬†called “rambutan”. You can googled it up in case you’re curious to know. I will repurchase again and again. Totally love it.

revlon top coat

Revlon Colorstay Gel Shine Top ¬†Coat in 0.4 fl oz. On the bottle it says long wearing nail enamel. Well, I’ve been meaning to get a top coat a month ago and this couldn’t come in a better time. For $2 a bottle of top coat by Revlon, I’ll have to say I’m a happy camper. With summer approaching, all finger nails and toe nails are ready to be painted for flip flop or beach sandals.

So, I hope you enjoy this Dollar store beauty haul for this month and I’ll see you all again next month¬†on Friday Beauty Haul.

Which is the best deal of makeup products that you found recently at your dollar tree store? I love to hear your comment below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

Dollar Store Beauty Haul

 

Hey guys,

I received a few request from friends recently to do a dollar tree haul or dollar store haul. Since I don’t have a dollar tree store here I’ll go a head and do a dollar store haul instead. The structure is quite similar where items are sold at $1.00 to a maximum of $3.00.

Okay, I don’t usually buy things from dollar store except for¬†party stuff for my son or plastic sandwich bags for lunch. So, here are some of the stuff which I picked up recently for this haul.

Why dollar store products? First of all, you can find similar items in the¬†drugstores¬†and¬†paying the regular price which are more pricey than the dollar store price. So, I’m trying to save a couple of dollars here and there. I’m like why pay more, right?

Besides my obsession for makeup, another product which I really enjoy purchasing is¬†body wash. I managed to grab a few good finds at the Dollar Store and I’m excited to share them with you guys ūüôā

beauty haul dollar store

Hair & Body Products:

1) AXE Dual 2 in 1 Shampoo РConditioner (net wt: 650 ml) for $3.00. I enjoy smelling amazing and beautiful scents on hair and body, no wonder I fell in love with this AXE or anything about AXE to be precise. Fabulous smell! They really have an incredible formula for hair and conditioner which my husband also like. Directions behind the bottle: Wash, Attract, Repeat.

2) St Ives Mineral Therapy Hydrating Body Wash (net wt: 709 ml) for $3.00. I picked this because it claims to be formulated without parabens and dermatologist tested. I really like the clean smell of this mineral therapy body wash. I’m going to try it out and will be back with a review on my thoughts and opinion.

3) Dove Gentle Exfoliating Nourishing Body Wash (net wt: 354 ml) for $2.00. Oh yeah! This gentle exfoliator is truly microscopically tiny. It smells good and refreshing. Can’t wait to clean and exfoliate my dry skin actually but no I’ll wait till I emptied my St Ives exfoliating body wash first which should be soon.

4) Olay Body Wash + Body Butter with jojoba butter (net wt: 295 ml) for $2.00. Again, this body butter has a lovely smell no doubt. It claims to satisfy dry skin with intense moisture in just 5 days. Okay, seriously is it just me or you too are curious to try this body wash cum jojoba butter in your shower after reading this?

parfume dollar haul

Health & Beauty Products:-

5) Hydrogen Peroxide Antiseptic Spray On (net wt: 100 ml) for $1.50. I always have a bottle of this in my Medicine cabinet. The secret of this peroxide is not only to kill harmful bacteria but also to remove liquid foundation from fabric stain. This is an absolutely must have.

6) Remembrance Forever Mine an impression of Always Yours by Ralph Lauren (net wt: 100 ml) for $3.00. I’m a huge fan of Ralph Lauren fashion collection all the way to its perfume. I’m surprised to find this impression or copy fragrance at the Dollar store. It has a nice fresh fragrant scents which I have to admit to be quite pleasant. I’m going to wear it¬†when I’m running a short errand.

7) Sweet Kisses an impression of Victoria’s Secret Heavenly Kiss (net wt: 50 ml) for $3.00. The first spray I tried smells like when I’m at my dentist office. It has a clean and subtle scents. I plan to put in my powder room for guest or family friends who visited to wear. The packaging is pretty as a decoration.

8) Elf Eyeshadow Brush for $1.50. Lastly is this brush. I really find that this elf eye shadow brush is handy¬†when I’m working on my shadow.¬†It takes a good amount of powder from the palette to apply on lids and crease. So, I’m going back¬†to get a few more brushes to stock up.

Well, I hope you guys enjoy this Dollar store haul and f you like to see more of my Dollar store post, don’t forget to leave your comment below.

Since I have a few body wash to try and do a review, please be patient and it will all be up soon.

Which is your best pick from your Dollar store or Dollar tree store? Please share your findings.

Thank you for reading.
