Budget Haul

Some cute things I got for great prices.
  • 14kt and sterling silver disc neklace by Adina Reyter for Love Earth from Walmart - $35.00 or
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in Milk (white), Gold (looks more copper to me), and French Fries(bronzy brown) from Ulta.
  • Stila Kajal Eyeliner in Emarld and Onyx (these aren't really what I would call "budget", but a little goes a long way) from Ulta.
  • Benefit Eyebright (also not budget, but I had to have it) from Ulta.
  • Covergirl Liquiline Blast (I got the purple and the blue) - they are very comparable to the Stila Kajal Eyeliner. The color is very intense, and they glide on very easily. From CVS.
  • Milani LIQUIF'EYE Metallic Eye Liner Pencl - silver. From CVS. (also about the same consitancy as above.)
  • MAC Lipstick in Creme de' Nude - FREE (They do a recycle program called Back 2 MAC, when you bring in 6 empty containters, you get a FREE lipstick. I LOVE this program as I like to recycle and new free lipsticks!!)
  • Victoria Secret Lipgloss SPF 15 in Ravish (LE). Also free with a $10.00 off coupon with no other purchase necessary.
  • Brown Gladiator Wedges $14.99 from Ross (I wear these a lot, they are soooo comfy.)
  • Black and Grey Dress $9.99 from Ross.
  • 2 sleeveless vests (I am really not sure what to call these, they don't close in front, they kinda just hang nicely over camis and tees) $9.99 each from Ross.
  • M. Patrick White Patent Leather Wedges from Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse. These were less than $30.00 because of another program. When you purchase shoes here, keep your receipt, and the next time you buy shoes, they give you 10% off from your previous purchase. In other words, spend $50.00 on shoes, next time get $5 off...

Spot Light Product # 1 - Benefit Powderflage

1) What is it?

Light-diffusing powder concealer for under eyes & face (description from

2) What does it claim to do?

Virtually weightless powder concealer camouflages fine lines and dark circles. It's fast, easy, lite and breezy! (from

3) Why do I love it?

It really does what it says! It works wonderful alone, or to set liquid or cream concealer to make it last longer. I use it both ways, and I use it everyday!! Most importantly for me is that it doesn't settle into fine lines. Instead it diffuses them.

4) How much is it?

$28.00 everywhere I have seen it.

5) Where can I purchase?, Also, Sephora stores, but unfortunately I don't have one near me :( You can also purchase at some fine department stores. I know Belk carries it.

My Skin Care Routine

Products Mentioned in this video:
*Johnson & Johnson Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash
In my video, I mentioned washing my face twice everytime I wash it (usually morning and night). I found out from my aesthetician that when you wash your face once, it kind of smears makeup, dirt, and oil around. The second wash gets deep down clean. A few days later, I read the same thing in a magazine. Try it out by using a cotton ball and some witch hazel. Wash once, then tone. Now, wash a second time and see how much cleaner the cotton ball is. Since this cleanser and the witch hazel are very gentle, it does not dry out my skin, and my skin is already on the dry side.
*T.N. Dickenson's Witch Hazel (This is typically located in the section at the store w/ alcohol, peroxide, etc., because it can also be used for insect bites, burns, etc.)
*Swiffer Cotton Balls (Yes. I am particular.)
*Olay ProX Eye Restoration Complex
*Olay ProX Age Repair Lotion
*Olay ProX Wrinkle Smoothing Cream
(3 products above are full size and come in the Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Starter Protocol - approx. $60.00 or sold separately for around $20.00 each)
*Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller
*Neosporin Lip Health SPF 20
*Essence of Beauty Foundation and Concealer Brush (purchased at CVS)
*Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelettes
*Neutrogena Healthy Skin Rejunator
*Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Line (I will be doing a comparison on this VS. the Olay ProX)
*Nivea Body - Natural Tone SPF 4
*Aveeno Active Naturals Theraputic Shave Gel (This really works for my sensitive bikini area.)
*Gillette Venus Embrace (Also great, it has 5 blades!!)
