NEW L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Eye Shadows

Hey everyone, I've been sick lately and seeing these newer L'Oreal 24 HR Infallible eye shadows at Walmart brighten my day a bit. The L'Oreal stand had a mixture of their permanent colors with six new shades.  They're $6.99 each at Walmart.

I did a review back in January on these L'Oreal 24 HR Infallible eye shadows already so I won't be saying much because these 6 newer shades are the about the same quality as the permanent shades.

I wonder if L'Oreal will come out with more new shades in the future? These are so good that I just want to collect them all.

May MyGlam Bag

I unsubscribe from MyGlam the day I received their May MyGlam bag.

I've gotten FREE makeup bags from Target's Beauty Bag that is much well-made than these cheap makeup bag MyGlam sends out every month. I don't think I'm being ungrateful because if I'm paying for it then why am I getting something worst than what I can get for FREE! I just gave the Nail Bling to my daughter. The brushes stink as usual and stunk up everything else that came in the bag. I've never heard of the brand Studio Gear but this lipstick was an ugly color. I wish the Philosophy perfume sample was bigger since MyGlam did state they offered deluxe sized products. Besides I could get free samples from Sephora so this is a waste of my $10.

I think I won't subscribe to these monthly subscriptions anymore in the future. I get more when I coupon with my $10 at the Drugstore.

Milani Shadow Eyez eyeshadow pencils

These Milani Shadow Eyez are currently sold only at CVS stores. I had to order them from Cherry Culture's website. I did order all 6 colors but they were out of stock of the purple one so I only received the other 5 colors. Cherry Culture sells them for $5.99 each.

I have used them as an eyeshadow base, as an eyeliner and they stay on until you take them off with eye makeup remover.

These are FANTASTIC! It doesn't smudge, it's water resistant, long wearing, highly pigmented, and inexpensive. I do really think they are dupes of the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners. I will be picking up the purple one too whenever I make another purchase from Cherry Culture. Worth it, worth it, worth it!

Big Lots Philosophy Makeup Sale

I feel like I hit the jackpot when I heard about Philosophy makeup being sold at Big Lots. They are so affordable at only $3 a peice. The cash register lady was like, "So how much do you think you would of paid if you bought these at Sephora?" I just smiled. I don't know how much but I'm pretty sure it would of cost over $100.

If you have a Big Lots nearby than you definitely have to hurry over and get some Philosopy! I was so happy I spent only $21 for all of this.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

I couldn't help it and bought six of these new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain this past Friday cause of the 40% off Revlon sale at Rite Aid. Their retail price is $8.99 each but with the sale I paid only $5.39 for each one of these.

In my opinion these aren't similar to the Tarte Lip Surgence that I already own. The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain is a combination of a lip stain and lip balm hybrid. It initially feels and applies like a lip balm but dries around 15 minutes to a matte stain that does not budge once it sets.  

I've worn these for four days now. They are long lasting and remain vibrant over 6 hours on my lips. As all lip stains they do dry out my lips too but they're not as drying as other lip stains that I've tried in the past. My suggestion is that if you do have drying lips like me than you should wear a lip balm on top of these Revlon lip stain. I do think these are unique stains worth buying.

Target Beauty For Every Body Bag

I had totally forgot that I did sign up for Target's Free Beauty For Every Body bag on their Facebook page a while back.

This makeup bag is just too cute. I like collecting mini makeup bags because I usually switch up my makeup bag in my purse often.

I am most interested in the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes.

So far this is my third year that I've successfully received Target's Beauty Bag. I don't know if they will continue this again next year but definitely will be on the look out.

Vanity Expand-A-Drawer

Once again I've been on a mission to re-organize my makeup drawers so while out shopping this weekend I found this container at my local Fred Meyer store. It is called the Vanity Expand-A-Drawer and retail for $9.99 each.

The Vanity Expand-A-Drawer is a white plastic organizer with divided slots to help organize your cosmetics.

They also make a variety of adjustable Expand-A-Drawers to organize your desk, junk, cutlery, utensil, knife, spice, and also extra-wided cutlery drawers too.

The drawer has a 9" width that can expand up to 16" wide. The length of the container is also 16" in depth.

Although the inside dividers are permanent, the two side panels can be taken apart and they are adjustable. It has grooves on both sides of the center panel that allows you to adjust its' width to fit your drawers.

The Alex drawer has a dimension of 11.5" width by 16.5" depth by 2.25" height which makes the containers the same height as the top five shallow Alex drawers. This container almost fills up the entire space of  the Alex drawer but there is still a 1/2 inch space left in the back of the drawer.

I was unsure how it would turn out but I'm happy that these drawers fits well in the Alex drawers. If you are interested in buying a similar container they can be purchased online from The Container Store's website. It's called the Desk Expand-A-Drawer in black but it's basically the same style and size as the white Vanity Expand-A-Drawer.

I no longer store all my makeup in the Ikea Alex 9 drawer unit so this Vanity Expand-A-Drawer container is perfect for organizing all my makeup or brush backups and overflows. They are nice containers and I don't regret purchasing these at all. You should check them out too!
