Check out this deal!

School has been rough this week, actually this whole semester but that is a story for another day. Last night my husband and I went out for dinner (no way was I cooking after this week) and over to the mall. We of course stopped by Lush. I think my husband is becoming more obsessed over the products than I am. I picked up some of their Valentine's day products and he got a new shampoo bar (Ultra Shine, I think) and some type of deodorant bar (something that I don't think I will try) and then I stopped in Sephora because they are next door. I needed nothing but retail therapy is good for soul.

Check out what I found.

It comes with

- 0.4 oz Hoola
- 0.45 oz High Beam
- 0.08 oz Gilded
- 0.19 oz BADgal Brown

4 full size items and a cute makeup bag for $35.00
I had been eying the Hoola bronzer, but my Nars luguna is working just fine so I never really jumped into buying this.

The Hoola is $28.00 alone so for 7 more dollars I got three other full size products!

I have yet to try these items out. I am excited about the high beam too!

If you love Benefit or are looking for some new "bronzing" products, hop on over to Sephora and check this out!

Favorite Beauty Products

I did a post like this awhile back, but today I am joining in over at Kelly's Korner for her Show Us Your Life Friday post. This week is right up my alley!

It was quite an investment but I cannot imagine not having my Clarisonic. I have had it a little over a month and it has already evened out my skintone and I haven't had any blemishes. Which always means less makeup and no concealer anymore!

I also use Philosophy's Purity cleanser with this and its a true dream. My makeup comes off easily and my face feel super clean.

I use Mac's Skinfinish Natural for my foundation and its super light but it gives me the coverage I need. I used Bare Minerals for years before but I love my Skinfinish Natural so much more!

I also love love love my Urban Decay Primer Potion! This stuff keeps my eyeshadow on all day!! It's great!

Some other products I adore are:
Lush's Vanishing Cream for my mostiurizer. It works great on my oily skin
Lush's Tea Tree Water
Mac eyeshadows
Biolage Moisture Milk
and Lush's Godiva Shampoo Bar

First FOTD

Well this is my first FOTD (Face of the Day) here on the blog. Which is pretty self explanatory. It was also my first day back at school so I wanted some quick and neutral!

I actually didn't get to take a picture this morning before I left so today you only get eyes!

I started off my eyes with Urban Decay primer potion all over my lid.

Next I used Mac's Fresco Rose paintpot for a base.

For eyeshadows I used-
Mac's Naked Lunch all over the lid.
Mac's All that Glitters on the outer 2/3rds of my eye
and Mac's Satin Taupe in my crease and a little Mac's Shroom to highlight.

I used Mac's fluidline in blacktrack on my upper lid and Stilla's kajal eye liner on my bottom.
And I finished it off with my Cover Girl Lash Black Mascara!

Talk to ya soon!

Happy New Year!!!

Today I am waiting on my UPS man to deliever my clarisonic skincare brush. I plan on documenting before and afters during our first month together.

I also want to do some review on here but I am not sure which product I should do first. Any ideas would be awesome!

I also have a lot of extra makeup laying around that I am thinking about selling, maybe through a blog sell on here.

I am excited to get this blog going!
