I hadn't been to a Sephora in a while so when I saw that they had OCC Lip Tars, I was excited. I grabbed "Femme" to add to my collection of lip tars... Which now equals a whopping total of two.
This shade kept catching my eye every time I'd visit Target or a drug store.... Finally I picked it up at Target for $6.99. "Endless Sea" is a teal-blue shadow. It's almost seems like somewhere between a cream and a powder but it's a powder shadow.
According to Ulta's website it is sweat-proof, water-proof and crease-resistant.
I received my "Tart & Trendy" from the MAC All About Orange restock and it arrived today. I hadn't even considered it until I had seen it a few times and it really grew on me. After reading a lot of wonderful reviews, I was sold. I'm a big fan of orange lipstick. (I also swatched Tangerine Dream from this limited edition collection.)
I took advantage of a Hautelook sale recently and purchased three Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadows for only $4 each (originally $18). The Hautelook sale is over but they are still on sale for the same price over at UD's website. Perhaps they're discontinuing them with the launch of their newer shadows, I'm not sure. I'd definitely check it out if you have any interest in pigmented, bold colors.
I had wanted "Graffiti" for a long time but never wanted to spend the money so when I saw it for only $4.00, I jumped on it and two other colors, getting all three for under the original price!
After partaking in the crazy drama that was the launch of RiRi♥MAC, I got "Heaux" today. I ordered "RiRi Woo" also but I did so in the heat of the moment, the ordering excitement got to me and I'm not sure I needed it. But, Heaux on the other hand... I couldn't wait to see it in person!
... Eventually I always break. There will be that one item I can't stop thinking about and these are some of those items.... Floating around in my brain and demanding attention until I finally sink and spend the money.
As an attempt to avoid this, I'm going to blog about these few little things that have caught my eye and stuck in my mind. Maybe it will help soothe The Wants and maybe it will make it worse... Either way, check it out!

I've been using these face wipes on and off for awhile now and I'm ready to jot down a little review.
The idea behind these guys is a cleansing, exfoliation and brightening in one swipe of a towel. Plus, a grapefruity scent. (No water needed.)
I've been spotting some very sexy Maybelline color swatches around and wanted to pick up something really bright so recently I grabbed "Fuchsia Flash." Even the packaging is insanely bright. I love it.
Due to some swatch posts at Beauty's Bad Habit, I decided I had to try Darling Girl Cosmetics. It's always kind of fun to try indie brands because you haven't heard them run into the ground and you can usually find something refreshing and different about them that makes them stand apart from mainstream brands. Darling Girl definitely has some interesting shades... And they're not just cool colors but they transform from pot to swatch into these almost magical hues. Very pretty and very awesome.
I stopped by my MAC counter yesterday morning while running some errands and such and they were almost already sold out of all the All About Orange lipsticks and the store had only been open for an hour!
I only planned to get the one that looked best to me and in the end, I grabbed "Tangerine Dream."
I've had problematic skin forever (10+ years) and for the past couple of years I've been going regularly to my dermatologist and she's tried a few different topical combinations and most recently she prescribed Aczone for my morning face routine. I've been using it for about two months now and can review the ins and outs pretty well at this point.
Let's get a few basics out of the way...
