As mentioned previously, I went on a teeny beauty binge over the weekend while helping my moms cousin shop for makeup essentials. From the department stores, to Sephora and even the drugstore, I couldn’t help but to pick up a few things for myself along the way.
While in the drugstore, I had to re-up on my daily essential – Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. While I was out of it, I was using the Deep Treatment Masque as a daily moisturizer, which may have worked better for me…but I’m not quite sure. I’m going to see how it goes with the Smoothie over the next few weeks.
I also picked up the Shea Moisture Dandruff & Dry Scalp Elixer because I’d been experiencing an itchy scalp for a few days. No matter what I did, the itch wouldn’t stop and I regrettably scratched my scalp with my nails to get it to stop. Not wanting to irritate my scalp any further, I picked up this product in desperation. A full review is in the works.
…and of course, I had to pick up some lacquers! Nails Inc has been on my list of brands to try – their magnetic nail polishes in particular (yes people of the world, magnetic nail polish), but my heart melted a little when I saw Wellington Square. It’s such a calming hue…I had to get it.
The Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear were on sale 2 for $4.00, so that was a no brainer, lol. Two nail polishes for that price…why not? This is brand is my favorite cheapie brand, the quality is not that bad for the price – I purchased the colors “Mellow Yellow” and “Black Out”.
Finally, my favorite purchase so far in 2012!!! A little back story here in case you need it: Anastasia is a brow expert who has celebrities flocking to her Beverly Hill studio. Name a celeb and chances are, she’s done their eyebrows. I love Anastasia mainly because of her story, she came to this country without being able to speak a lick of English, and is now a successful business by doing something she’s truly passionate about – eyebrows. This woman has built a business on eyebrows!!! Anyway, for those of us who can’t visit her in Beverly Hills or couldn’t afford her anyway (me), she’s created a line of products. I had the pleasure of picking up the Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes. I’m so excited to play with it. I’m jumping out of my skin over here!!!
So those are the things the items I’ve recently purchased. I’m very happy with everyting and I can’t wait to dive in!
