Hey y'all! Ashley here today, and I just wanted to let y'all know that I sure have missed you!! I know it has been a while since I've talked with y'all, but life has been crazy to say the least! So, I have been trying to watch my spending lately, but there are a few items I just couldn't resist from buying! These are all from the drugstore, so that definitely makes my wallet happy! I have recently picked these items up in the past few weeks, and have had a chance to try them all.
Milani Bella Eyeshadows
I have three of these. I have Bella Sand, Bella Cappuccino and Bella Espresso. I really enjoy using these! They are the perfect shades to create a soft smokey eye. Perfect for daytime! They are very blendable and there isn't too much fall out, which I usually find in cheap eyeshadows. They are defintely worth the $3.99 price tag.
Physicians Formula Mascara
This is a great drugstore mascara. It doesn't make your eyelashes "crunchy," but does volumize them. I didn't notice that my eyelashes are a longer, but definitely thicker. I would probably not repurchase this again, but again, for the price, great deal!
The first time I used this, I didn't love it. I saved the box and receipt in hopes that I would actually return it to Target. However, I gave it one last try and I really loved it. Isn't that so strange how makeup can be so different from day to day? It's like good mascara. It's never great the first or second time you use it, but give it a few days and it's fab! Same thing with this. I can't put it down now, even over my Urban Decay 24/7 and my beloved Nars Larger Than Life.
L'oreal Nail Color Riche in After Hours
I was actually a little disappointed in this. I was really hoping that this would be a go-to nail polish for me this fall. I liked the color as just one coat, but two coats was almost black. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to black polish, but this wasn't what I was thinking it was going to be. I have black polishes, so I was hoping for more of a navy blue. Because I added my favorite top coat, Seche Vite, it didn't chip for almost 7 days. By day 7, I was ready for a change, so I took it off. It was very hard to remove, and I had blue/black stains around my nails for 1-2 days.
Seche Vite Top Coat
I have been using this top coat for years, and I can't stop talking about it! I recently picked up a new bottle and realized that I will NEVER use another top coat. I do my own manicures, typically every Sunday night. This top coat has made my process SO quick and easy. If I am ever in a hurry, my nail polish doesn't go on that smooth. However, this always smooths out the polish and makes it so shiny! It dries within 3-5 minutes which is amazing! Hands down, best top coat ever!
Nail Polish Remover Dispenser
Y'all, I love this! I was able to fit about 1/2-3/4 a bottle of nail polish remover into this dispenser. It is so easy to use and makes taking my nail polish off so much easier!
Freeman's Face Mask
I'm obsessed! I think I have 4 different Freeman's masks in my drawer at the moment including Chocolate and Strawberries, Pineapple, Cucumber Peel off and one more that I can't think of at the moment. These are the bests masks that I have found that are affordable. You just can't beat $3.99 for such a large bottle! I use a mask about 3 times a week, and I can tell a noticeable difference in my skin. Definitely worth the buy!
Yes to Coconut Wipes
I am a huge fan of makeup wipes! I will forever love my Clarisonic, but I always use a makeup wipe prior to washing my face with my Clarisonic. I love the smell of anything coconut, so these wipes were right up my alley! They do a great job of getting all of my makeup off, especially my mascara.
Garnier Moisture Rescue Refresh Gel Cream
I bought this several weeks ago and have almost used up the entire bottle! I grab for it every day and can't imagine my skincare routine without it! It is nice and cool-like as it's a gel. Although it is oil-free, it does a great job of hydrating my skin without making it oily.
Jergen's BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream
I bought this in the darker skin tone. Although I am losing my summer tan, I had read reviews to go up a shade. This does a great job at smoothing out my legs (hello cellulite!) and does a nice job of maintaining my summer tan. Love this!
Loreal Colour Riche Lip Balm in Heavenly Berry
This is fabulous! It is definitely a balm as it hydrates my lips, but adds so much pigment like a lipstick. My lips have been extremely chapped lately, so this has been great to throw in my purse to apply throughout the day. I need to buy this in more colors!
I am so glad I got to chat with y'all today. Happy Hump Day and talk with you soon!
