NYX Blush Desert Rose Review, Swatches, Photos

NYX Blush Desert Rose 1

I did a little too much damage during the 50% off site wide sale at NYX during Thanksgiving weekend. Ouch! But who resist at these prices?

Anyone haul?

Whatcha get?

I was excited to haul some of the mega palettes they had and I gotta tell you, so far, I’m not disappointed!

Anyway….

Even if you missed the sale, NYX still calls to the beauty budget souls among us. Check out their blush if you’re seeking pigmented yet wallet friendly.

I tried the shade Desert Rose and loved it!

Check it!

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher Review, Swatches, Photos

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher 1

I used to stick to the high end road on Musings for a very long time but many of you expressed more budget friendly posts and thus my adventures in drugstore land began. I’m lucky the walls don’t crumble down around me when I walk into a drugstore because lord knows I avoid the makeup aisles at the local shops like the plague.

But lately….

Things have improved and brands are definitely competing with their more higher end sisters. So Beauty and a Budget is definitely a regular deal around these parts and I’m ever so happy to bring you a great deal on makeup that has high quality to back it up!

One such item, Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher. Can you say wicked good?

Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection Review, Swatches, Photos

Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection 2

I gotta admit that I thought the Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection was an ickle boring but part of it’s appeal was 1. it’s packaging and 2. its auto delivery status on QVC.

Basically Bare Escentuals packaged this up on an auto delivery which offered new seasonal colors every few months. Fabulous gift in my humblest which is why I ordered some as just that but I couldn’t go without getting one for myself because they came in a hat box. Gush! Totally slayed me. Couldn’t resist that kinda packaging. I know, I know I shouldn’t give into the packaging demons but I couldn’t resist plus hey it was a mere $36 dollars for several full size BE products. Not a bad deal all around.

But the colors…well they are a bit meh but wait until you see them in action!

Josie Maran Love Nest Josie’s Argan Favorites Review, Photos

I’ve commonly associated Argan Oil with Emu Oil for far too long. No idea why when one is a bird and one a plant. WTH am I thinking?!

Anyone try Josie Maran Argan Oil, no, not Emu Oil. I’ve worked it into my regime for the past two Winters, it’s fab for dry, flaky skin.

If you haven’t tried it yet the best way to do so would be snagging yourself Josie’s Love Nest Argan Favorites. It’s a cute little set that not only features her best selling Argan Oil but other fab little offerings too! I love it for the name along, Love Nest awww, oops wait, another reason to think of birds, nest!
