I picked up a couple new items from Walmart the other day, looking for some inspiration and the new highlighter palette by FlowerBeauty. I obviously did not get the palette because this Walmart didn’t have it yet. I was pretty disappointed, but I found a few other items I had my eye on. the Ardell Magnetic Accents lashes and opted for this beautiful HardCandy highlighter palette. I stumbled upon the L’oreal Crushed Foil metallic eyeshadow in Diamond dust. Honestly this shadow is so pretty, it has an iridescent green tint as well as a kind of Burgundy undertone. It’s a crystal kind of finish and its just stunning. A little goes a long way! The magnetics lashes are amazing, they required a bit of fidgeting about in that I had to use a tweezer to get them to stay in place. You have to first put the top lashes to rest on your now lashes and then let the bottom ones join on via the magnets. They stay nice and tight and do not move, which is great once you have them the right place, but until then, its a bit annoying. It’s worth it for me though because then I do not have to deal with eyelash glue, which I don’t mind, but it does save time not having to deal with it. Definitely give them lashes a go! The picture below is an image of the look I created and on my YouTube channel you will find a close up clip of the look. Tutorial coming soon.



About face foundation by Flower Beauty is a different kind of addition to my makeup treasure trove. I’m conflicted, as I am surprised by how the shade I chose seem to dry lighter, meaning it aerated or oxidized to a shade too light for my skin. however, how wonderful it feels going on and the fact that it stays all day due to the built in primer are reasons for me to recommend this foundation. I feel like those benefits outweigh the shade in that it is easy for you to go in store, be that at Walmart or Ulta beauty to color match. I ordered this online based on a picture and thus, mistake were made.

Definitely give it a try considering it’s on sale now for only $9.80 USD, it is a decent product and fortified with all kinds of good treats for the skin such as vitamin C and E as well as anti-oxidant and anti-aging qualities. It comes in a pretty package in that it’s a glass jar with a removable cover and a nice pump that gives just a little at a time. It has the signature faux rose gold leaf logo on it that makes the packaging so elegant. Which is perfect because a little goes a long way. It is, after all, a full coverage foundation.

There’s nothing the effect of the constant reminder of the various mainstream products advertisements of their products. But when you go into a store like Target and decide to stop in the beauty isles, because you know, you just can not help it. You find there’s a decently competent sales person working there who see’s that you’ve walked around a product a few times, clearly debating which color to buy and she says, ” so I see you’re debating something here, can I give an opinion? This product I was debating was the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Color. I couldn’t choose between the rich plum shade in Believer or the nice peachy nude in Dreamer.

She began telling me about her journey with this product and how she’s a smoker and often found that any lipstick would eventually need touching throughout the day. But this particular lip color stayed on, lasted the whole day, regardless of how many cigs she had, or if she ate or drank anything, she did not need to re-touch it! I asked her if the product came off easily and she quickly said oh ya, the makeup wipes work best. She then went on to explain that the more dramatic shades were her go-to colors and that she had been hunting for a nice plum. She opted for the darker plum in this new Maybelline line called Escapist and loved it.

I was clearly intrigued asked a million questions ranging from length of time to dry to if it required a lip liner and so  on. Finally, I also opted for a richer tone and was super excited to go home and try it. She then returned with more wonderful info, that the Target app saves you money daily. Basically, if you are looking of r a particular product, check the app in case its part of the daily sale and that today these Lip Colors were on sale for 20% off and they are already fairly low priced at Target as it is!

Below is a picture of my trying it out for the first time. I was on my way to the Montessori  where I work and loved that it didn’t actually take as much time to put on. I find it really difficult to apply lip color within the lines as I have really strange skin around my lips. But the applicator in this precast really helped me out and as long as you remove anything that got outside the lines before it dries then your golden! It lasted the whole day, did not come off. truly does feel like you’ve applied ink on your lips. Only weird thing I notices is that when I did drink something like coffee, the color started to peel apart in bits on the inside part of my lips. It was almost like you were eating tiny bits of the product. Not the best experience there, but honestly minor for a busy day where you don’t have time to be concerned with your makeup.

Definitely go give this product a try, at $7.19 at Target, you really can not go wrong! They have a range of 20 colors and although in store there were only 9 on display and even less available due to the sale, keep your eye out. They will have them in stock soon enough!
