So it's been raining so much for the past couple days here in Jersey, and my sister, cousin and I were going crazy bored @ home lols so we headed over to the mall. I wanted to get some foundation samples because I wanted to try the pro longwear before I purchase it. Also Victorias Secret had sent me some gift cards so I wanted to use them before they expired. So one of the gift cards was for free undie and so I choose a purple one :
I love this color! Next I had a $10 off any purchase and so I decided to get something makeup related since its been a few weeks since I've purchased anything.
Sorry for the blurry pix, my camera is sadly giving its final breath. ( =[ ) So its an eyeshadow pallete and its small meaning it will be great for travel and will fit fine in my purse. They had two palettes, this one and a purple one and now that I got it home I wish I had gotten the purple one just because I feel like I have all these colors in my makeup collection which sucks because my sister said it when I picked it but I still got it. (Something about the bronzy colors that always gets me!! grrr) So I might just go back and get the purple one when I geta chance. This palette is $15 bucks and with my $10 off I paid $5 bucks which is a great deal!! I do like the colors and they are pigmented considering I have had bad luck with in the past with the victorias secret makeup. I am just annoyed that I liked the purple one but still choose this one lols. I like that its not bulky and I definitely see myself adding this to my travel makeup bag. I will play around with this sometime this week and when I get a chance I will post some pics up.
I went to Sephora and got a sample of the Nars sheerglow foundation, and also got a sample of the Pro Longwear at Mac. The guy at Mac was so nice and helpful. He matched me just by looking at me lol and I thought the foundation looked a bit orange but when applied it blends beautifully into my skin. He gave me a small sample of Oil Control Lotion when I told him about my oily skin problem. I had'nt gone to Mac in a while since the last time the other guy that helped me (I spent $300 bucks!) was so rude. He acted really annoyed and uninterested and didn't really talk to me. I didnt see him there this time and I was glad! I definitely am going back to Mac for some eyeshadows this weekend and I hope the guy that helped me today is there! On to the pics and my opinions....
So the Nars sheerglow I was excited to get, since I basically live on youtube and I love how it looks when I watch reviews. I was given the color Syracuse. On me, I hate it. It looks a bit ashy on my skin and It might be the color is off but even then, I dont like the coverage it gives me.
The prolongwear I only swatched a bit on my face and it seems to match. I am waiting to use it on a workday and see how I like it and how it holds up on my skin. Also the Oil Control Lotion feels nice on my skin, but I am waiting for a workday to see how well it works for me. I have a feeling I will be purchasing both tho.
I also purchased a skirt at Old Navy, which was a fail because it didnt fit lols but I got it on sale so I dont think I can return it. I guess this trip was a bit of a fail, I will be giving the skirt to my sister and returning for the purple palette I really liked.
This is the skirt.
Dont you hate when you head over to the mall and dont like anything, and the few things you get you end up regretting?? =[
Well guys, until my next post, ADIOS!
