ZOYA Buy 1 Get 2 FREE! + more Deals Steals 4 Reals

I love a good Zoya Promo =)
Right now until November 29, 2010 everything in the 
section is Buy 1 Get 2 FREE
They have color cubes that include a mini polish and full size Hot lips for $8
Zoya Mini Color Lock System for $20
Plus so much more!
I think I'm going to get 3 of the mini color lock systems and 3 color cubes and pay a total of
$28 plus shipping
*EDIT* Sadly, you pay for the most expensive items in an order, so if i bought 3 mini color lock systems and 3 color cubes i would have to pay for 2 of the color lock systems because they are the most expensive, making it $40.

Also, here are some other deals you might want to take advantage of
Best Bath Store Deal

L'Oreal Lash Boosting Serum- 4 week update

Click here to see my 2 week update

It's been 4 weeks since I started using the L'Oreal Lash Boosting Serum and before I post my review I wanted to share some pictures of my lashes with you guys and let you decide if you think its been working or not.  For those of you who don't know, I have only been applying the serum to one set of lashes and leaving the other one alone as a "control" to this little experiment.  I haven't mentioned which lashes I've been using them on cause I don't want cloud your judgments, LOL.  So, here are some pictures after using it for 4 weeks. 

Can you see a difference? Which eye do you think I've been using it on?

DS4R: Physicians Formula Bronzer

Rite Aid is having a sale on Physicians Formula Bronzers.  They are Buy One get One FREE! And to make this an even sweeter deal, some packages have $5 off instant coupons on them.  If you grab two bronzers that each have a $5 off coupon on them, thats $10!

My Rite Aid sells these Shimmer Strips for $12.95 each, and they were BOGO FREE this week, so two shimmer strips for $12.95 - $10 from the instant coupons makes it = 2 shimmer strips for $2.95! Plus tax i got these two for under $5 =)

I picked up Sunset Strip and Waikiki Strip

*prices vary by location and area tax

DS4R:Tresemme Fresh Start

Tresemme has a fairly new line of products, Fresh Start.  4 products designed to let you extent the time between shampoos.  There is a Dry Shampoo, a Waterless Foam Shampoo, No Frizz creme and a Refreshing Mist,

I actually picked these up last week at CVS when they were on sale 3/$9.99 but this week they are on sale at Walgreens for 3/$10, pretty much the same deal =) 

To make this deal even better, i have a coupon for Buy One Fresh Start Item get another Fresh Start item for FREE! And to make it even better I had a $1 off coupon on a Fresh Start item, making these extremely cheap =) Two of them came to $2.33, so I scored all four products for a little over $5.

So head on over to Walgreens and check out this steal! 

Print coupons here:

*If you are lucky enough to have a $2 off coupon then you get an even better deal =(

L'Oreal Lash Boosting Serum- 2 week update

So, it's been two weeks since I started using L'Oreal's Lash Boosting Serum.  Here's what L'Oreal has to say about the product: 

Get the lashes of your dreams, with Concentrated Lash Boosting Serum . This breakthrough formula contains Centella Asiatica Extract and Arginine to reinforce, condition, and protect each lash. Apply daily under your Mascara and at night to bare lashes. The result: visibly fuller, thicker natural lashes with less lash fall-out when removing makeup. You won't believe your eyes!

Basically, its a lash conditioner that promotes lash health and strength, it's not a miracle lash growth serum.   Unlike products like LiLash or RevitaLash, it doesn't state that Lashes will grow longer. Instead, it's supposed to help make your lashes stronger and prevent lash loss and in doing so, possibly let them grow longer and fuller.

I decided to use the serum on only one set of eyelashes.  I won't tell you which eye I have been using it on until the end of the 4 weeks.  Look at the pictures and let me know which eye you think I've been using it on! Can you see a difference?

Its actually really hard to get a decent picture of my lashes, keep in mind that the lighting isn't quite balanced (esp. in the first picture).  Also, please ignore my freckles =)

My Everyday Makeup

This is my blog entry to Lorraine's Everyday Makeup Contest.

 My everyday makeup consists of:
Concealer under my eyes
Filling in my eyebrows
Eyeshadow primer
Eyeshadow (light shade inside, darker shade on outer half and in crease)
Curl my eyelashes, apply mascara and liner
Bronzer and Blush
Lipbalm or gloss

Thanks for having this contest Lorraine =)

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks Review and Swatches

So i picked up two of the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks
because they were on sale for 50% off at Walgreens this week and I had
a couple $2 off coupons (i love coupons!)
These are the two I decided to get:
Rose Blush (300) and Pink Chic (220)
Both are really pretty Pink shades.
When  I swatched these I was so surprised at how "wet" they were
Applying them to my lips I found them to be really smooth and moisturizing, almost as if I applied a lipbalm.
I just bought these so Im not sure how long lasting they are, but so far I'm pretty impressed.
I did notice a light floral scent to these, nothing overpowering.

Have you tried any of the Rimmel Moisture Renew lipsticks?
What do you think? Any favorite shades?

Solar Power Nails

What do you guys think?
I bought this polish over a year ago, its Solar Power by China Glaze
I love the idea of yellow nails, especially for the summer!
But Im not too sure this color is flattering on my skin tone.  This is the only yellow nail polish I own, I haven't found one that really suits me.  

This is my second time applying it (over a year later LOL).
I find this color difficult to work with because it can look quite streaky, I had to apply 2 thick coats (3 probably would have been better).
Also, I find that this color can look "messy" for a lack of a better word.  
If this edges aren't perfectly neat it looks very obvious.
But I am enjoying it more the second time around...
Thoughts? Do you have any yellow nail polish suggestions?

ELF eyelid primer comparison swatches

The ELF eyelid primer retails for $1
UDDP retails for $18

Here are some swatches of different shadows over the E.L.F. eyelid primer (left/top)
and over Urban Decay Primer potion (right/bottom)

shadows from left to right:
MAC nightlight pigment, covergirl trio- shimmering sands (1st shadow), 
MAC mauvement pigment, GDE Aqua Foil

If you can tell, the shadows swatched over the UDPP were slightly more vibrant than those swatched over the ELF primer.  I also noticed that the color applied more evenly over the UDPP as opposed to the ELF primer which was more vibrant on some areas and a little lighter in others.  I also noticed that pigments/loose shadows worked a little better over the UDPP.

Overall, I felt that for $1, the ELF primer held up pretty well throughout the day without 
and major problems of creasing.
