August Favorites

August was a no-buy month for me but I was lucky to have happy mail from friends and shopped my stash.  Some new, some old that I reunited with and I legit grabbed for these things almost daily (except the red liquid lipstick; I received that toward the end of August but I love this lippie).  Deets below and as always ask any questions in the comments.

HA!  At the very top is my wrap cap; I wrap it around my hair in the morning after I have burned it into submission with my flat iron to keep it neat until I leave out for the day.

Next is my travel knots with striped beads.  Blacks and white striped beads. I heart Nikki and her shop. Shop it here.

Custom stickers of myself!  Duh…I absolutely adore and the creator is one of my best planner friends.  Want your own?  Shop here.

Diptyque‘s Nourishing Lip Balm. Worth every single penny.  It has a pleasant slight rose scent.  Normally I am funny about scents but this one is so faint and pleasing.

A great nude lipstick from Glo Girl Cosmetics in the shade Camel Toe.  I know…the name leaves a lot to be desired but it is what it is.  LOL. It is matte without drying my lips.  Big win.  I picked it up at the Atlanta Beauty Show a few months ago.

Diptyque sent samples with my order of course and I am not normally a floral scents gal, but I love Olène (Wisteria, Narcissus, Jasmine and Honeysuckle.)

The Lip Bar‘s liquid lipstick in Bawse Lady. Another great gift from my girlfriend Njeri. I am a blessed beauty junkie!

Maybelline’s Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner.  Love, love the curvy applicator tip. CVS.

I walked with this set of fine point gel pens from MAMBI since I received them from my planner friend, Akilah.  They are great. I need another set to hoard. Seen at Hobby Lobby.

If you’ve read this far (thank you for hanging in there) you think this is just a ruler, right?  Wrong.  It’s my ruler.  Every time I borrowed one in the house the owner would remind me that it wasn’t mine (kids!) BUT, now I have my own. It’s the little things. Walmart.

MAC‘s Transparent Finishing Powder.  Game changer for me when setting my underage concealer.  And how pretty is this LE Chris Chang packaging?  Adore.

Lastly…my beautiful, black kodiak traveler’s notebook handmade by Terri Bradley over at Speckled Fawns. It holds my multiple daily notebooks and I just love it.

Maybelline The Nudes Palette Review + FOTD

Soooooo, I know, I know, I’m not much of a drug store beauty blogger but I just had to see what all the fuss was with this Maybelline The Nudes Palette.  Youtube and Instagram yielded mixed reviews so I had to see for myself.  I got the last palette at my local CVS!  The makeup gods smile down on me.

The skinny:  It’s not Dior…or MAC…but it is good.  I recommend this palette.  Surprised? 🙂

I like: that it has 12  shadows, that you can create a look with quads, trios or duos, the price point, the compact case.

I dislike: the black shadow (not a true black but still workable), no names/numbers on shadows

Grade: B.

If you have this palette, please share your thoughts with me.  If you don’t is it on your wish list?

Sweet Summer Swap

For the first time I participated in a beauty swap put together by Beauty Expressions by Luchessa and Polish Alcoholic. I was matched with a woman named Deb, the budget was $20 and we had to send each other at least 4 items related to summer. Before we shopped we communicated allergies, favorite color and dislikes. All she knew is that I liked blue and didn’t want any flesh colored beauty products; all I knew about her is that she liked pink.

This is what I received in the swap.

Here is the package I put together and sent.

Not bad, hunh? Thank you to Luchessa for organizing the swap, we were both happy with our packages. I look forward to the next one.
