Bright Blue Eyes

Hi Bellas,

How's it going in your neck of the woods? Is it cold like it is here? The weather is so boo hoo...cold and gray. Meanwhile, I need to keep myself indoors so that I don't freeze andddd don't go shopping. No more MAC till Fafi! I was checking my bank account today and it saddened me, I really need to discipline myself. Last year I was on point with a budget...that kinda flew out once I got back into makeup. I get paid tomorrow so that will be a fresh start and I'll only budget enough for Fafi for this month. After that, enough for heatherette. However, yesterday I headed to CVS because they have a bunch of makeup sales, I know I just said I was on a budget...but this isn't MAC, lol. L'Oreal H.I.P products are buy one get one free. Other brands like Maybelline and Revlon have certain products half off as well. I got a few items. For drugstore cosmetics, the HIP line is kinda expensive...the gel cream eyeliner was like $13...luckily like I said it was BOGO or else I wouldn't have gotten one. I made a quick vid to show yall what I got and will probably post it in a few days :) In the meanwhile, go to CVS or your local Duane Reade and check out the sales!

SUNDAY 1-20 TO SATURDAY 1-26

CVS BUY ONE GET ONE FREE ALL L'OREAL HIP ITEMS

RITE AID BUY ONE GET ONE FREE ALL L'OREAL HIP ITEMS

DUANE READE BUY ONE GET ONE FREE ALL L'OREAL HIP ITEMS

WALGREENS BUY ONE GET ONE FREE ALL L'OREAL HIP ITEMS

Meanwhile...Here's the eyeshadow look I rocked for the first half of the day on my anniversary. You may be thinking...didn't she wear the crazy daises rainbow eye look on her anniversary? Yes you got me! I did a mid-day eyeshadow change...I couldn't help it, I was inspired! he he. Anyhow, I used Otherwordly paint pot and it made the blues pop! I also did a video but I dunno if I'm going to post it b/c I kinda got frustrated with my eyelashes at one point and I seemed crazy during the video, lol. Anywho, so I definitely should have written down what makeup I used but i'll try to do it from memory:

i love the blue!! soooo pretty..! what is CVS? is it a drugstore? i want more stuff! i am so sad there's no Ulta store near me. *boohoo*

dang, you really can pull blue off. sometimes it works for me & sometimes it doesn't. you look so adorable though :)

& yessssss, i'm on the same page as you about the whole budgeting thing. i think we spend a lot of $$ only because MAC keeps on releasing collection after collection. damn you MAC! LOL.
