Dollar Store Random Haul

 

Hey everyone! Thanks for joining me in this blog. Today’s post is going to be about Dollar Store Random Haul. I was in there when I visited Ottawa a couple of days ago where I excitedly picked up a few random things. Oh yeah! I’m literately the ultimate tourist.

Dollartree Haul

I noticed they’ve souvenirs for Canada 150th Birthday¬†(which is on July 1st) and so I grabbed a few as a memento. I want to say nothing is over $5 from Dollar Store and they’re usually price around $1, $1.25, $2 and $4.

Blending Sponge

When I saw this Blending Sponge by Jolie Couture, my instinct told me to get it. I don’t really know this brand but I don’t mind trying out new brands and products especially when it costs only $2.50.

I’m very curious to try out this sponge so I let you know what I think in the hit or miss series. So don’t forget to check back later.

Sticker and after sunscreen

I was tempted to go nuts on the sunscreens, but had to remind myself of the insane amount of sunscreens I’ve that I got to finish this year and opted to just picked one. L’Oreal Sublime Sun After Sun Rich Repairing Lotion¬†drew me to it. Made the purchase and I asked my hubby if he’ll help me to use it and was glad that he’s on board with the idea. I burnt to crisp with summer heat and this after sun repairing lotion is what¬†need this summer.

It smells amazing and feels so lightweight. I really like the cooling sensation which is not sticky at all when I rubbed it on my body. Seriously, I’m in love! You guys have to try this.

Next is the Adventure Sticker that I’ve been loving. It would look super cool to have them on my laptop. I’m a sucker for cute things so I can’t pass on this one. I’ll show you how it looks in my snapchat and don’t forget to add me!

Tattoo and keychains

I’m such a tourist in my own country. Grabbed some souvenirs to mark Canada 150th Birthday on July 1st. The Tattoos and Key chains are super cute. I wore the tattoos last weekend and even though it rained, the tattoo was still holding on. It was a big celebration for Canada from coast to coast. Check out my instagram or snapchat where I shared some interesting posts.

Sharp alarm clock

This is a random pick by my hubby. A Digital Alarm Clock that’s only $4 by Sharp that’s a super steal. I’m going to put this in good use once our old Casio call it a day.

Air Wicks Stick ups

Last but not least are two packs of Airwicks in Lavender and Chamomile scents. These are products I love to have them in my home all the time. I need to go back to get a few more packs. They smell amazing and it makes me happy.

Elf Brightening Eye Color : Photos & Color Swatches

elf makeup palette

Welcome to this week’s post review. Today’ I love to talk about the product from Elf. I did a mini beauty haul¬†previously and I’m sharing with you some pictures, color swatches and product review. So, let’s hop in!

This Quad Essential Brightening Eye Color consists of other colors namely Luxe and Drama.

Each quad is composed of 4 coordinating shades that allow for both natural and dramatic looks. A small built-in mirror tucked underneath the dual sponge applicator. Lovely packaging and easy to bring around in your purse.

I bought this in the shade¬†“butternut” and it’s amazing for $1.00.¬†I didn’t expect much for only $1.00¬†but each shade is nicely pigmented, smooth and blend easily. It has a slight shimmery finish. It’s not bad. Could be a bit more pigmented, but for a buck I’m not complaining. But I have to point this out so that you¬†know. The downside which¬†I notice¬†visibly was the formula – it’s¬†a bit chunky by using fingers but it blends well with eyeshadow brush.

But see how it blends out so well on my¬†bare hand. I don’t use primer or eye base when I do a color swatch. This is what you get from Elf Brightening Eye Color.

No color fallout and it give a soft dewy finish which looks so natural and feeling care free. It’s a perfect shade for everyday wear. No touch up needed.

As I have mentioned in my earlier post, I noticed that the lighter shades don’t really show up on me but the darker two shades are beautiful as a duo. This would be a great product for some one who isn’t really experienced with eye shadows or you’re new to makeup as well as people who value the inexpensive price.

BUY THIS QUAD FOR ONLY $1.00, JUST DO IT!

Which are your favorite products you always go back to with Elf? I love to hear your comments in the section below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

Moisture Renew Lipstick by Rimmel

Two weeks ago, as I went window shopping at Wal-mart. Just checking if there were any new products for fall season. My five year old son was with me at the makeup section and¬†he picked up this lovely color (Rosette) for me to purchase. Well, this was not the¬†new collection from Rimmel. But then I thought,¬†well I haven’t been¬†buying lipsticks lately and I desperately need one. I preferred to get Revlon because¬†I just love the creamy and matte¬†texture. Anyways,¬†so thought¬†it would be a good idea to get this one. First reason, so that I will not disappoint my son and second I pretty much like the color when I made a color swatch. I believed there were like twenty different colors to choose from. So, I paid $5.47 for 0.14oz.

I got to admit that this lipstick was¬†too creamy and it glides¬†easily on lips. It’s smooth and nice on the lips but in my opinion the¬†formula was too moisturizing or I would say wet. ¬†It’s smudges and¬†on top of that, Oh dear, it has such strong scents. I can’t tolerate the smell of¬†the roses scents (too strong for a lipstick).

I like the color I got in Rosette but not so much on the texture.

I put on the lip liner before applying this super moisturizing lipstick. It’s super pigmented and that might be the reason why it bleeds color like crazy.

This lipstick has intensed color shade. It’s bright and had glossy finish. So, when I tried to check on the¬†color transfer.¬†I was suprised to see the amount of the color transferred. I refused to believe to get three times of color transfers by just applying one coat of lipstick.¬†I rest my case.

The color wasn’t as long¬†lasting as the Kate Moss Long-lasting lipstick by Rimmel. I’m terribly disappointed with¬†this one. I don’t see myself wearing this lipstick again. It will be in with my other Collectible haul (products that I will not used again).

For that price at Wal-mart or any drugstores, and to pay $2 more, I will definitely go for Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks ($7.99 at Target) anytime than to go for this particular product.
