Last weekend Haul -- PF, ELF, Lorac, Bath & Body Works, Nail Polishes, and a Purse

Since I worked my butt off for the past couple weeks and got paid last Friday. I thought I was going to blow my money and splurge but I think I actually did pretty good. Spent less than I anticipated. I guess I can blame it on the Sephora coupon I got in the mail because April 14-21, VIB can save 15% off their purchase. So with that said, you can expect a Sephora haul post by this weekend.

Anyways, the point of this post to to show you what I got last week.

I purchased more ELF eyeshadows from Target. I bought the Blooming Eyeshadow Collection, which comes with 4 duo eyeshadows and a brush/pencil. I also decided to try more mineral eyeshadows and got the Sea Blue set. Each of these sets are sold for $4.99.
I bought the Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Bronzer from CVS. I used the $5.00 coupon. The PF blushes and bronzers were on sale for $6.00 off so with the coupon, I literally paid $3.00 for it.

I stopped by this nail supply store next to an asian market. My sister told me about it so I decided to check it out. The selection was ok and the prices could have been better but it is still cheaper than paying retail. They were selling China Glaze for $4.00 and OPI for $6.00. From left to right I have Eyes Like Sapphires, Sea Spray, and Simmer & Shimmer.
If you live in Milwaukee area and would like to check out this nail supplier, here's the address info:

Central Nail Supply

 If you know any other nail supplier in Milwaukee, feel free to let me know too! I hate paying retails, lol.

I didn't purchase this Lorac eyeshadow palette. This is actually a giveway that I won and was sent to me by Huda Kaake. So thank you so much Huda. I was stoked when I unwrapped my package. This palette is called "time to shine" and according to the packaging, is being sold at Ulta for $28.00.
The palette comes inside a clutch-like packaging with a wide mirror and 10 eyeshadows. They are all shimmery, except for the black one. I don't really like the rough glittery texture of the cover. I experienced a bit of glitter fall out but nothing extreme.
There was also a mini-size Multiplex 3D mascara included with this eyeshadow palette. I tried it the other day and was pretty happy with the result. The formula is a little wet but it allows me to build up volume and length without clumping.

Here are the swatches. The top row is definitely more subtle and day-time appropriate. The bottom row has more dramatic colors for an evening look. The eyeshadows are soft to the touch and blend easily. As you can see on the picture, the pigmentation isn't the greatest but with a good eyeshadow primer, they are doable.

Huda also sent me 2 hand lotions from Bath and Body Works and a small travel-size hand sanitizer...It's so small and cute and I love shoes! One lotion is not pictured because I lost the original photo of my giveway prize and I gave it to my daughter. But yeah, she sent me some awesome goodies.

I was browsing through DSW hoping to find a cute pair of shoes. Surprisingly, I didn't find any that I liked enough to buy. I managed to spot this lovely purse. Made by Etienne Aigner and genuine leather. The original price was $132.00. It was marked on sale for $55.00 and with my $5.00 birthday coupon, I got this baby for only $50.00. I like how classic and casual this looks. It's large enough to hold all the things I need. It also comes with a detachable shoulder strap.

That's all for now...I will be posting a couple makeup looks I did with the Lorac palette. So stay tuned, if you are interested in it. Thanks for reading :)
