A Mini Haul
Along with Mufe HD I also picked up some other stuff, and it was kinda unplanned, one of those walking-to-the-register, impulse buys. I wanted to find a nude lip liner, and not wanting to break the bank...completely, I kept with the Sephora Brand, and 114 and 135 are the colors I picked. So here's the swatches of the liners, on top it is 114, and on the bottom 135.
I am happy with the lip liners, for how much I paid. No they are not the best, but they were only five dollars. I like the 114 color and the 135 seems to look best with Creme d' Nude out of all my lipsticks, so I like that.
The other thing is Smith's Rosebud Salve, I already had Smith's Minty Rose Lips, and this was right before the register, and since I was still in that Mufe HD haze, and such an easy sell, the products in the line got me..and I was just about up to the register too! Well either way it is a nice lip balm, but I admit I have yet to wear that solo when I go out, but it is definitely apart of the nighttime routine.
Also I picked up Cover Girl Lash Blast at Longs the other day, and I am pretty happy with it. In fact I am regretting my high-end waste of money when I purchased Dior Iconic. Though Iconic is a nice formula (but difficult to get off unless you have a good makeup remover), and the wand is really cool (in my opinion), it actually is very similar to the Lash Blast wand...so now I'm feeling pretty dumb. Oh well I have to say that the Iconic mascara definitely feels high-end, the package at least. And it was nice for a change ( I have always used Loreal and Maybelline mascaras til now).
I was super tempted to let my inhibitions go and scoop up a couple Revlon Colorstay foundations, but I didn't!! Well the reasons I was so tempted is because I have read about these from Lollipop26, and seeing that she compared Mufe HD to these, and I just bought HD, I was very intrigued..
Now the other reason that I was soooo tempted to throw caution to the wind and use the last coins in the piggy bank (so to speak), is because it was on sale...buy one get one free...Now I know I may sound crazy, cause If I'm trying to save so much money, why wouldn't I just pour out the dough for one, and then have a supply of foundation that would possibly last me an entire year!?
Well I decided I know how easily I get bored, and guaranteed at least one of those foundations would have gone to waste, and I hate buying things I know I'm not going to use.
So that is that, and Yay For me, I said NO! No I am not giving the cosmetic industry ALL my mooonay!! LOL I'll just be giving it to MAC instead of Revlon I suppose... I know I'm just a crazy girl.
