Another FiS on lipsticks OPPS!

Well recently I read on Gianna's blog, also known as Nouveau Cheap, that CVS was having a clearance sale on selected products.  You could see her list: here.  I noticed that Milani Cosmetics' lipsticks and Revlon ColorBurst lipstick were all 75% off.  I knew I had to get some that caught my eye.  So once again my FiS session continues with lipsticks.  

I didn't pick up that many since I wasn't really feeling some of the colors, or the other lipsticks were all disgusting looking.  What I mean by disgusting looking is, used basically.  Where the lipstick would be all smudged up on the sides etc.  ICK!  Who wants that right?  It seriously bothers me when some people do that.  Just ugh look up swatches on your phone or at home before you buy something really.  If there is no tester DON'T OPEN IT!  This is why I always sanitize my lipsticks when I buy them.  Even if its still brand new, I do it anyways.  It has become a habit to do so.  Better safe than sorry.


Uh-oh total FiS moment with Lipsticks!

Recently I have been on a "must grab more lipstick" phase.  I knew I had to complete my Wet n Wild Megalast lip colors, since they are one of the best cheapo matte lipsticks I love.  Then there was that sale Make Up Academy MUA Cosmetics was having, and I wasn't really feeling eyeshadows at the moment so I splurged on their lipsticks.

If you know me, you know that I hate spending a lot on just one product.  If I do it's because I really want it!    I am more of the girl who will see it as "Oh it's $25 for one...UGH I could buy several items with that price! K next!"


Review: Ever Bilena Superlash Mascara - Blue

Today I am bringing you another review from the product Ever Bilena Cosmetics that I had received from my best friend's, Les, goodie package to me.  Ever Bilena is a popular brand in the Philippines that doesn't cost a lot.

I mentioned to her before that I wanted to try out colored mascara again.  She told me how a lot of people were using a blue mascara there that wasn't expensive at all.  So she picked me up Ever BIlena's Superlash Mascara Blue.    

I thought this wonderful how they have the mascara color shade as part of the tube design.  That way you don't have to look for the color name on the mascara tube, which honestly could be a hassle if you are in a hurry or you have some tubes that look the same.  


Uh-Oh! FiS on Sinful Colors and New York Colors

So before everyone starts doing a bitchy fit over the product, please understand we are all entitled in our own opinions.  Despite the controversy, IN WHICH Revlon has apologized for and is currently working with the bloggers it had occurred to, I still like the nail polish.  Though it upsets me they did so, I am glad they are resolving the issue.
Sinful Colors is just a nicely priced product that goes for $1.99.  So when it's on sale for just $0.99, I have to grab some!  With that said...
I also included  the two New York Color nail polishes I picked up when Rite-Aid was having the sale of 40% off all New York Color products.
Every thing is listed left to right:
New York Color Expert Last Nail Polish:
  • Green Means Go
  • Flash of Pink
Sinful Colors:
  • Happy Ending
  • Vacation Time
  • Lavender
  • Ocean Side
  • Clementine
  • Slate
  • Rain Storm
  • Citrine
  • Timbleberry
So there is my little haul of polishes over the weekend.  I had to buy Happy Ending again since that was the bottle that had broke awhile back.

Did you pick up any polishes during Walgreens' 99cents Sinful Colors sale?  What is your favorite color from them?


FiSed at the Craft Store

So I forgot to post this, which occurred a few weeks ago.  OPP!  Went to several craft stores:  Hobby Lobby, Joanne's, & Michaels.  Also stopped by several other shops as well.  My hubs and I went into the shops just to look around.  But like always there was some sort of good sale, or a clearance item which caused me to NINJA it!  Also ended up picking some polish up as well.
An air shot of all the goodies I ended up getting.  I went a bit glitter crazy!  Please excuse the bad quality of the pictures.  I took them at night. 


I cracked and FiS! OH MY!

So over the weekend, I had finally cracked!  I have been on a no-buy where I was attempting to finish up some products in order to buy some new ones.  But that was getting me no where haha.  I went into a drugstore to pick up a colored eyeliner, and instead I ended up buying nail polishes, along with some little goodies my son decided to pick up as well.  Gotta love the toss on the counter while mommy is paying!  haha no no!  My kid isn't like that.  He actually asked me if he may get one, and I told him "No, but you could get two."

Okay for the Color Club and Cosmetic Arts nail polishes, I have no clue what the names of it are.  So if you have ANY IDEA at all, let me know!  Either send me an email or make a comment.  I will greatly appreciate it.  I'll post swatches of it soon. 
As for the New York Color I bought them over at Rite-Aid which is currently on sale for 40% off for this week only (July 15 - 21).  Actually it's all the New York Color products at the moment.  Which is great!  If you're lucky your Rite-Aid could have the $0.50 off coupon for NYC cosmetics.  Not to mention $1+up with Rewards card. 
So here are the NYC polishes I picked up:
  • Mint Breeze
  • Golden Glam
  • Times Square Tangerine Creme
So there is my small FiS moment of goodies! 

What did you pick up over the weekend?


A little FiS moment

I did a little FiS and picked up some goodies.  I am still trying not to spend so much at the moment.  Since a lot of family or coming down and the two special love of my life boys' birthday is coming up SOON.
First off is a Japanese brand called Detclear, which is basically a brightener and peel toner that removes dead skin, black heads, and such.  There is a gel solution of it as well, but I ended up accidentally picking up the liquid solution.  Which honestly doesn't bother me one bit.  I love being able to see results of how smooth my skin feels after using it, and the gunk it picks up.  I will be picking up the gel solution after this bottle is finished.  It has a slight smell of fruitiness, but it isn't anything overwhelming.
I ended up picking up three Wet n Wild Megalast nail polishes from Walgreens.  B2G1F deal.  The colors from left to right:  Heatwave , Tropicalia, and Bite the Bullet.

So there you have it, my little splurge moment.  Like I said I am still trying not to spend so much.

What did you buy lately?  Are you on a no buy?


Uh-oh! FiS Moment!!

So here are the goodies I got over the weekend!  Most of them were from Walgreens.  I swear my local Walgreens, a bunch of them know me now haha.  I almost went there every day last week just because of the sales.  Friday was my last grab from them, and I only grabbed a few on Sunday.
Oh Mail! Oh My!
  • Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum
  • JĀSÖN Restorative Biotin Pure Natural Shampoo
I received these in the mail from Klout, which is a great way to get free items!  You get to compare your score with friends and such.  It's pretty interesting!  So if you're into blogging, twitting, etc. make sure to check them out!  I'll be giving the Neutrogena to my mom.  And can't wait to use the shampoo!  Thanks Klout!
**Under no obligation did I receive this item or talk about Klout.  I will not get any additional benefits for talking about the product or company.
Sally Beauty:
  • Lip Gloss Applicators & Mascara Wands
I couldn't believe I just went in there, grabbed what I needed for work, and left.  I think mostly cause one of the workers at the Sally I went to, which by the way I never go to that one, irked me!  She was arguing with me saying she thought my nails were fake, and that I didn't do them.  She then went on how she has to do stiletto nails for class.  I am sorry if my nails were fake, I'll let you know!  And I never let anyone do my nails really!  If I didn't do them I'll say where I got it done.  -sigh- K end of that.  It just annoys me when people just keep saying I didn't do them, or insisting that they are fake.  HATERS HAHAHA!  Okay vent over!  Back to my haul!
  • Pond's S Hydrator for dry or sensitive skin
  • ELF Clear mascara and brow
Picked up the ELF for easy usage on the male actors for the shoot.  Honestly I rarely use it unless their brows need to be groomed up a bit.  I decided to try out Pond's S Hydrator, since the last Pond's moisturizer I have tried was in high school.  Hopefully it'll be good for hubs dry and sensitive skin issue.  Lately he has been using theBalm's timeBalm Vanilla Oil moisturizer, which he loves.  And here is a little confession:  I have been such a moisturizer fiend lately!
  • 6 Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm (BOGOF) - 2 have been left out of the picture
  • Nivea creme moisturizer & soft creme moisturizer (BOGO1/2)
  • 2 Rimmel London Foundation - which will be used for work
  • Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer
  • Rimmel London Sexy Curves waterproof mascara - black
  • Rimmel London Gentle Eye makeup remover RAIN CHECK for 2
When I bought the Rimmel items it was during their 50% off.  I asked for a rain check on their eye makeup remover since they didn't have anymore.  Still an awesome grab, and I am hoping that they are in stock before my coupon expires!
  • Revlon - Whimsical 
Been hearing about this polish for awhile, and thought I should finally grab it.  At the moment all Revlon items are at 40% off at Rite-Aid.  So if you love their products head on over there.  Also make sure to like Rite-Aid on their Facebook page so you could get the $1 off coupon for a Revlon nail polish.  So I basically paid $1.99 for Whimsical!  How awesome is that? 
  • Wet n Wild Spoiled - Let's have sushi
  • Wet n Wild Spoiled - Lox-y Lady
  • Wet n Wild Spoiled - Thanks a Latte
If you haven't heard, Wet n Wild Spoiled polish is on sale for $0.99 this week over at CVS!  So make sure to get them before they run out.
And there you have it!  My total FiS moment, and with that I am going on a no-buy for awhile.  How long does your no-buy cosmetics usually last?  Mine...not that long to be honest.  I always end up cracking over something.  So I am going to see how long I could last on this one.


Uh-oh! FiS moment!

So I went back to Walgreens since that 50% off Rimmel is going on until Saturday, and I knew I had to pick up some other stuff.  Don't forget if you are planning on buying some Rimmel, make sure to check out my other FiS for coupons on it.  You can seriously save some major bucks!
The two packs of Makeup Remover from Nature's Care is a 15 sheet, and I bought them at Rite-aid.  They were $1.99 each, and wanted something to try out new for wipes.

All the Rimmel London items I bought at Walgreens.  Seriously this sale + the coupon is just way too awesome! 
Rimmel London snagged up:
  • Clean Finish Foundation - Ivory (was for my bestie, but it's the wrong shade OPP.  So just going to go back and exchange it.) Original Price $5 sum Sale price $2.74 - $1 coupon
  • Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Original Price $7 sum Sale price $3.74 - $1 coupon
  • Volume Accelerator Mascara Original Price $9 sum Sale Price $4.74 - $1 coupon
  • Lash Accelerator Mascara Original Price $9 sum Sale Price $4.49 - $1 coupon
  • Lasting Finish Pro Nail Polishes Original Price $4 sum Sale Price $2.24 - $1 coupon
I spent a total of  $14.19 plus tax.  I saved about $26 on my haul!  Gotta love saving when it comes to cosmetics!

Have you picked up some Rimmel London items from Walgreens' sale yet?


Uh-oh! FiS moment!

I was suppose to be on a total "no-buy cosmetics" goal, but with getting supplies for work, I find it difficult to avoid.  Not to mention some of these sales that have been going on!
So here is what I picked up over the weekend!
The Sedona Lace samples came in last week, but I never got around to posting about it.  Just been so busy with so many things going on.  It included three pans of eyeshadow from their most popular palettes, and a travel brush of their Vortex Synthetic Blender.  I haven't opened up the pans yet.  As for the brush it's so cute and small!  The bristles are super soft!  Will definitely will have this in my stash when I go on travel.
Headed to Ulta.  Picked up two of their Salon Nail Lacquer in Jaded, and Maine Attraction, which is currently going as 2 for $4.  I only have one nail polish from Ulta, so I had to try more, before I pick up some for a care package to a good friend.  I also picked up Maybelline's Dream Matte Powder, in light and medium shade BOGO1/2.  So basically my trip to Ulta I spent only $12 sum since I also had the $3.50 off coupon.  Not bad at all!
Went to K-mart and noticed they had BOGO1/2 on Wet 'n' Wild products, and noticed they had the shades I was looking for the Megalast Lip Color.  Honestly if you have not tried these yet, I suggest you pick one up!  They are actually my favorite items from them.  They were actually $2.99 a piece for the lipsticks.  I picked the Coral-ine, and Purty Persimmon.
My next pick up of items, was from Walgreens.  They are currently having 50% off ALL Rimmel items.  How awesome is that?  And not to mention here are three coupons for you to print out.  Make sure your Walgreens does accept these.
You are able to print them out several times.  I didn't grab that much today, since I had forgotten my list of items that I need for the shoot.  The sale is well wicked!  The foundations were about $2 sum a piece at the 50% rate already, minus $1 from the coupon!  So I spent $3.74 + tax for both of them.  LOVE SAVING!  Oh they were the Match Perfection, and Clean Finish Foundation.

What did you pick up over the weekend?  Do you plan on heading out to Walgreens now for the sale?

Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and have a great week.  Happy Monday gorgeous!


Uh-oh! FiS moment!

Wait wasn't really an FiS.  More of I was buying items for work, and not to mention some gifts.  Meh FiS or not, it's a haul so HA!
I went to Sephora, and was only suppose to pick up one thing, which was the travel size for the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray.  Doesn't work seriously!  I always end up picking up something else!  So I walked around a bit, and decided to grab Sephora's Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner, and their pencil sharpener since I needed a new one.  I then spotted sponge tip shadow brushes on their sale items section for $1!  Grabbed up two of those.  The canister pots are samples I had asked for.  The left contains Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, and the right is Makeup Forever's HD Elixir Primer.
If you didn't know you could do that, well you can!  You could ask for a sample of foundation, wash, primer, etc. to take home and try it.  I normally don't ask, but I needed to check some other primers out.
See that black bag in the back?  That's where my items were put in!  It looks super sleek, and I was actually shocked.  I never received a bag like that from them before.  Have you?

So the next haul in was a drugstore run.
  • Sinful Colors Nail Polish was going for $0.99 a piece!  So I picked up four at the moment since there wasn't really any colors I wanted.  One is for me, and the other three are for my best friend Leslie.
Here's a close up of the polish I grabbed up.  From Left to right:
  • Island Coral < a peach coral shade which is the one I got for me
  • Pink < one of my favorite neon pink polishes thought it would be fun to add to her collection :)
  • Pink Forever < I think it's one of their new shades
  • GoGo Girl < a nice red shade polish
  • Wet 'n' Wild was going for 40% off the whole cosmetic, and nail polish line.   So I grabbed up two of their eyeliners a Mink Brown, and Black to use for the film mess.  One of their Megalast Lipcolor in the shade Mauve Outta Here.  I ended up realizing I should of picked up more of those lipsticks!
So there you have it my little spree.

What did you pick up over the weekend?


Uh-oh! FiS moment!

Last night, we headed to Target, which was near a Rite-Aid I normally go to.  We decided to swing by, and I was only suppose to grab one of Xan's favorite cookies (Moon pies), but I ended strolling around the cosmetic aisle.  haha which I always end up doing!  I decided to just grab three polishes.
  • L.A. Girl Glitter Addict - Celebrate ($1.50 it was half off)
  • Sinful Colors - Energetic Red ($1.99 typical price for them)
  • Hedy's - Bolts of Blue ($2.99)
I haven't seen Hedy's polish before, but I think I have seen some makeup products from them.  I'll have swatches of these up soon.

The other day, hubs received a package in the mail from Milani Cosmetics.  I totally forgot I entered him into the giveaway they were having on Facebook and Twitter.  I guess he won their last one with the 25 sum random item winners.
He gave me the items, so another intake to my collections.  It was their new shades for this spring Runway Eye Shadows.
  • Peaches & Cream
  • Antigua
  • Golden Touch
I have Peaches & Cream, and Antigua already, so I might be giving these away eventually.

Yesterday I received the items I won from Crown Brush's giveaway they were doing on their Facebook fan page.
I received Enkore's lovely makeup brush set he has with Crown Brush.  I had bought this already last year, but HEY a girl can't have enough brushes haha.  It's funny because I was just talking to my best friend, Les that I was thinking about buying some brushes.  The Cosmetic Gods heard my prayers and granted me brushes YAY!  I'll post up some sort of review or close look of these in due time.

Which of these items are you interested in seeing a review of?

Thank you for checking out my blog, and I hope you have a wonderful day!


Uh-oh! FiS Moment!

So this weekend, I decided to check out some cheapo eyeliners, and spend a little bit on myself.
I normally overlooked these, and grab something else, but these were saying "Grab me!"  It gave me the opportunity to also try their eyeliner since a friend of mine was looking for a cheap nice brown eyeliner.  Jordana Cosmetics is apparently owned by the same company that owns Milani Cosmetics. 
I picked up the colors:
  • Brown
  • Purple Fusion
  • Blue Devine
Have you tried any of Jordana's items?

Thanks for stopping in, and seeing my FiS moment!


Uh-oh! FiS moment!

So this weekend I was actually focused on picking up goodies for two awesome girls in my life, and my mom.  Just little goodies, but I did end up having an FiS moment haha.
Not huge at all.  Just a mini of random things.


Uh-oh FiS'ed moment!

When ever I mention FiS it means "F*** it!  Splurge!"  It's something my best friend and I say when we just pick up something, usually cosmetic items, and not care at all.  Or it would be where it's on our "I want" list, and we wouldn't get it, since it isn't a "I am in a rush to get it," sort of thing.  Then once we see it in the shop -ninja'ed and dances- "FiS!" 

Well today I decided to pick up a few theBalm items!
  • Hot Ticket - All you do is taupe!
  • Plump Your Pucker - Pink my lemonade!
  • Stainiac - Beauty queen
  • Bahama Mama (bronzer)
  • Hot Mama (shadow/blush)
  • Mary-Lou Manizer aka "The Luminzer"
Over time I'll show swatches, and reviews on it.  Which one would you like to see first?
