JewelMint Haul: My first order!

These earrings are my first purchase from Jewelmint.com. I first heard about this site on youtube, when juicystar07 mentioned them. It's basically an online jewelry club which was created by Kate Bosworth, and her celebrity stylist Cher Coulter. You sign up take a style quiz, which is free and depending on your results the site creates a jewelry collection for you. If you dont like the selection you can always chose to see more. Then if you decide to join you enter your credit card info and you are charged 29.99 a month. Each month you have 1 credit to pick out a piece of jewelry. If you dont want to buy that month, you have the first 5 days of the month to let them know you dont want anything, and then you wont be charged that month. I think it's really, really fun. I joined cause I really have no jewelry other then my wedding ring and like 2 random pieces of jewelry from old navy or something. I'm trying to be a little more fashionable, and get out of my Mommy wardrobe and look. Which is not really a "look" at all,lol.

I saw these earrings and was just drawn to them. They looked really simple and elegant. I have already worn them out and I love them. They are not too heavy, but they have a good weight to them, not flimsy and cheap at all. I was so happy with my purchase, I couldnt wait to order again, so I didnt, lol. I picked up a bracelet that I had really wanted. Oh I did get the earring for 50% off because Jewelmint sent me an email with a coupon code. You can find coupon codes for them on retailmenot.com. Also if you sign up and just wait a day before you purchase they will prob send you a coupon code as incentive to buy. As soon as I get the bracelet I'll post about it , and let you guys know if I like it. Oh and for everyone you invite to Jewelmint and makes a purchase they will give you a credit which is equal to 1 piece of jewelry for free. Oh and shipping is free. Well thats all I can think of for now.

Wet n Wild Palette in Sweet As Candy : Swatches and Review

Hey, I just thought I would start swatching the Wet n Wild palettes I recently purchased. I really am so surprised by the great quality of these palettes. The Sweet As Candy palette which is one of the color icon trios, is a HIT in my book. It retails for $2.99! You get 3 shades which is all you need to create a a beautiful soft romantic eye look. They really do take the guess work out of creating a look. Each shade is imprinted with where you should place the color, eyelid, crease and brow bone. I think this feature makes these palettes ideal for makeup newbies who have never worn makeup before and are intimidated by palettes, because they don't know where to put what. Of course you can still use the shades in any combination you like, or just a single color all over the lid. I love this palette, for an every day look or add some black liner and smoke it out for a more sexy look, without over doing it. The shadows are all very blendable, and feel very soft and creamy to the touch. The colors do last, but I always recommend using an eyeshadow base.

Keep in mind I have naturally tan skin, so the shades will look more intense on lighter skin tones. In my opinion you cant beat these Wet N Wild palettes for great quality at an unbeatable price. You can find these palettes at most drugstores, but I think they have a wider selection at Wal Mart and Walgreens.

Haul: More WET n WILD!

I couldnt help my self, I think I might end up owning every palette they have. I was so impressed with my first Wet n Wild color icon palette in Greed, that I had to get more. I mean for $4.99 and $2.99 for the trio's it's a steal. I'll put up swatches and review them soon. Cant wait to get my hands on that Blue : ) The Palette on the left is called Pride and the one on the right is called Sweet as Candy.

MAC's Carbon vs WnW Greed Palette! Even better Dupe!

So after weeks of hearing nothing but raves about Wet n Wild's color icon palettes, I decided I had to pick some up. I am so happy I did, they are AMAZING! So after swatching all the colors I couldnt help but think that the matte black shade on bottom left of the palette was a million times smoother and more pigmented then MAC's Carbon eyeshadow. I couldnt believe how black the wet n wild shadow was. I barely had to touch my finger to the shadowand I got great payoff. I was really surprised since Carbon is like the Holy Grail of matte black shadows. I say if you dont have Carbon save yourself the cash and pick up the Wet n Wild Greed Palette! You will get an even better matte black as well as 5 other great shades for $4.99! While Carbon will run you $14.50 or $11.00 for the refill pan. Just goes to show you price doesnt always determine quality.

CVS Haul: Wet n Wild, Rimmel

I'm kind of backed up on some stuff I wanted to post about. I went to CVS last night and picked up a few items. I was surprised that they still have a lot of stuff on clearance for 50% & 75% off. I was looking for the WnW color icon palettes but this was the only one I found. It's the Greed/Gourmandise palette, it also came with a free mega length mascara. I also got a a WnW Mega Liner in 861 Black/Noir. I have no liquid liner so I wanted to grab something inexpensive. I got two Rimmel Royal lipglosses, in Berry Crush and Pink taffy. Both were 75% off. The last makeup product I got was a Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick in Pink Champagne, which was also 75%off. I also picked up a mini nail polish remover nothing fancy, just ran out.
Swatches and reviews coming soon!
Rimmel Lasting finish lipstick in Pink Champagne $1.49
Rimmel Royal Lip glosses both $1.47 each
WnW Palette $4.99
WnW Mega Liner $2.99

I'll post swatches soon.

Haul: NYX Round Lipsticks + Swatches

I recently purchased 6 lipsticks from NYX  off of Ebay. I always get my NYX products off ebay, because they have incredible deals. I paid $12.01 for all six lipsticks! That includes shipping. You cant even buy one MAC lipstick for that. The quality and pigmentation is really amazing. I recommend them to anyone, on a budget or not. I swatched them all for you, keep in mind I'm naturally tan so the swatches wont look as bright on my skin as they would on lighter skin.

From Left to Right:

Hope you Enjoy!

Here's a link to the Ebay seller I brought these from:
