Mini Haul

I was out on a mission this morning to get a beautyblender, as well as some other products I have been wanting to to try for a while.

Here are the products in my mini haul:

My first stop was Walmart. I picked up the e.l.f. Natural Glow Face Palette ($8), the e.l.f. Aqua Beauty Molten eyeshadow in Brushed Copper ($4), Rimmel Stay Matte foundation in 103 True Ivory ($4.97), Wet ‘n Wild Coloricon bronzer in Ticket to Brazil ($3.93), Wet ‘n Wild Coloricon blush in Apri-cot in the Middle ($2.93), Wet ‘n Wild Ombre blush in The Princess Daquiries ($4.68), Rimmel London Lip Conditioning balm by Kate Spade in 01 Clear ($4.97), and the OXG Coconut Water conditioner (because I have a lot of the shampoo left ($5.16).

Next stop Sephora.  I picked up the beautyblender ($20), Buxom Lip Polish in Clair ($20), Sephora Rose sleeping mask ($4), and Hello Fab Vital Greens Face Mist Refresh & Set ($18). I am curious to see how this setting spray works with sensitive skin.  A review post will follow soon! I’ll also do a beautyblender review post in the next couple weeks.

My last stop was Ulta to pick up Soap and Glory’s The Righteous Butter ($15).  I can’t even explain my love for this product. I always have to have an extra one because I go through a full jar in just under 2 weeks.

I am ready to try my new beautyblender, and I will use it tomorrow morning with the Rimmel Stay Matte foundation.  I recently bought the L’Oreal Infallable Pro-Matte foundation and wasn’t crazy about it.  I think I just picked up the wrong color.  The matte foundations do tend to cling to dry patches, so this just may be a product I use when my face is having a no dry patchy day.  Being 44, I do not like to set my foundation with powder.  It gets into my wrinkles and adds another 15 years.  I’m hoping the Stay Matte produces good results!

The e.l.f Natural Glow Palette (below) is very pretty. The first two colors on the left of my arm are from the top row. It’s highlighter, two blushes and a bronzer. I love the light peachy pinks.

The molten eyeshadow in Brushed Copper is also very pretty.  I don’t wear a bold lid. I typically just dust on a light brown and I’m good to go.  I’m trying to venture out into different eye looks.  The Buxom Lip Polish in Clair is gorgeous!   I am very much a lip gloss kinda gal, and I love glosses with just enough shimmer and color.  I stick to the light pinks and nude colors. The Buxom lip polish is very pretty.  It also has a cooling effect on my lips.  I’m really liking it so far! I have to run out to the food store so we’ll see how long the cooling effect and color lasts!

That’s it for my mini haul!

Soap and Glory Hand Food and The Righteous Butter – A Review

Soap and Glory Hand Food (and The Righteous Butter)

I have been using these for over a month now and I love them.

I bought a travel size Hand Food from Ulta and loved it so much after a few uses that I went back and bought two regular sized tubes.  I also just recently bought the The Righteous Butter.  If you suffer from dry skin like I do, even eczema, this stuff is AMAZING.  And it smells so good!

I wash my hands a zillion times a day and I need a lotion that can keep my hands moisturized like I don’t wash them a zillion times a day.  Hand Food does exactly that.

From the Ulta website:  A non-greasy hand cream with shea butter, macadamia oil, and marshmallow. Scented with our Original Pink Rose & Bergamot fragrance, combining fresh bergamot, mandarin, rose, jasmine, peach, strawberry, and soft musk & amber base notes for skin that is blissfully clean and silky-soft.

Moving on to The Righteous Butter.  This stuff is also TO DIE FOR.  I use this daily all over my body after my shower.  My skin is so darned soft and it leaves my skin smelling yummy.  I can stick my head down my shirt right now and I can still smell it on my skin from applying it almost 12 hours ago. The Righteous Butter makes my legs so soft.  I can apply it in the morning, and until I shower the next day, my legs are soft and smooth.  With other lotions, I have to constantly reapply to keep my legs from looking flaky.

GET IT.

You can find it online, and at Ulta, select Walgreens, and Targets.  It’s a bit pricey for lotion; Hand Food is $8 for a full sized tube (the travel size is $4) and the The Righteous Butter is $15 (travel size is also $4), but those medicated lotions and other body lotions that promise soft skin at half the price are crap.

Invest in your skin, yo.
