My heated blanket- This is the background that everything is laying on. I was walking through Target and saw that the heated blankets were 50% off. I’ve been wanting one because I love to be extremely warm. I sleep with 3 blankets on me every night. This has been one of the best purchase decisions I have ever made. I love it so much! I’ve been sleeping with it on and I have been sleeping so good. I would recommend going to your Target and seeing if they have heated blankets on sale.

Ello water bottle- I am the worst at drinking water so I figured if I got a cute water bottle then I would be more excited to drink water. This is actually working. This also came with a mixer ball so it can be used for protein shakes. The bottle is also glass which is so much better than plastic. I got this for $15 at Target

Checkered robe- A robe is something that I’ve also been wanting. This was on the sale rack at Target. (Are you starting to see a trend here?) I picked it up and it is so warm. I sit in it for embarrassingly too long.

Naturebox snacks- YouTubers use to always talk about naturebox when it was a subscription service. Now you just buy the snacks individually. They sell some of the snacks in Target and I’ve been trying to snack healthier. The big island pineapple is some of the best dried pineapple I’ve ever had. To be honest the selection isn’t the best at Target and I don’t think I’ll go out of my way to buy them online.

Loreal infallible foundation sponge- I love this sponge more than I love my real techniques sponge. It is so much softer. When I read reviews a lot of people said it was the closest to a beauty blender they could find. I have not tried the actual beauty blender but I hope to compare these two soon. This was $7 at Target.

So I guess you could say that Target was also a favorite of mine because I purchased all of these things at Target. Let me know what you guys loved this month and what you’re looking forward to in March. Have a great week!

Small Sephora/Ulta Haul

Small Sephora/Ulta Haul

Hello, Everybody! How is your February going? Taxes came in so that means that I had a mini treat yo’ self day. I don’t really get to buy high-end products often because I’m on a tight college budget, but I allowed myself to splurge a little. I picked up a few things that were on my wishlist and I’m currently loving everything! I will do more in-depth posts about each product but these are just my first impressions. Let me know if you guys have tried any of these products, and what you think of them.

Smashbox Cover Shot: Smoky- This was the first thing that I for sure knew I was going to buy. There are 8 different palettes within the Cover Shot line. I picked up the smoky one because there’s a green shade that I love in it. These eyeshadows are great! I don’t really hear much about these palettes but I would say they are worth it. It comes with 8 shades: 2 big bases and 6 smaller shades. The base colors are a little chalky but overall good. I want to get a couple more of these palettes. This was $29 at Sephora.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Peach Oil Lipgloss- I don’t normally like lipgloss but I have been wanting to branch out of my comfort zone. I am very happy with this purchase. There’s a lot of people who don’t like the artificial peach smell but I don’t mind it. I think this would be really great over nude lipsticks because it’s not super pigmented. I have the shade pure peach but I really want papa don’t peach. This was $19 at Sephora.

Benefit Cheek and Lip Stain Trio- These really aren’t talked about anymore but I really wanted to try them. This is honestly a great deal too. Each bottle is 4 mL, which means you get 12 mL in total for $18. A full-size bottle is $30 and you get 12.5mL. So for $10 less you get almost the same amount of product with a bigger variety. Of course, if you don’t like one of the colors then it isn’t worth it. I like all of the colors, and I feel like I’m not going to go through these very fast. I think they also have a trio like this for their liquid highlighters. If you want to check out the tint trio it is at Ulta.

Tarteist Pro Glow To Go- This is such a perfect trio for traveling. I do want the full-size Pro Glow but I just went with the smaller size for now. You get a contour shade and 2 highlights. I have only tried it once but I enjoy all three. The contour looks really warm toned in the pan but looked more cool toned on my face. I got this for $23 at Ulta.

Makeup I Bought In December

Makeup I Bought In December

20170103_124433

Throughout December I decided to pick up drugstore items that I had been wanting to try. I would pick up one thing, and then a week later go back and pick up a few more things. So I’ve tried everything out and want to do a mini review on each product. Let me know of any products that you guys love so I can try it.

E.L.F HD powder in soft luminance-  I briefly talked about this in my December favorites which you can check out here. I think this powder is really nice. Lately, my face has been looking really cakey with makeup on. I thought it was this powder at first. This morning all I put on was some concealer and then the powder on top, and it didn’t look cakey. The cakey look must be coming from my foundations. They’re both pretty old so I don’t know if that happens. Also, my skin has been pretty irritated lately.

E.L.F exfoliating stick- I have a couple lip scrubs in pots that I don’t really like. I feel like I can’t get a good exfoliation with them. I like this stick because it’s mess free and really easy to use. I got the scent in sweet cherry, but it smells like nothing.

E.L.F. HD lifting concealer- This concealer is nice but it isn’t really anything special. I have it in the shade light but it is not light enough. It ends up looking ok on the skin once blended out. The only shades they have are fair, light, and medium. Not the best color range.

NYX suede lip liner- I have the NYX liquid suede lipstick in brooklyn thorn which is a gray/purple color. NYX is one of the only makeup companies that actually has lip liners that match and have the same names as their lipsticks. I just wish this was a twist up pencil.

NYX HD blush in bitten- I also mentioned this in my December favorites. I love this blush and I want more colors. This is a nice brick red color and I totally recommend it.

Essence pure nude highlighter- This is a really nice natural highlight. It is a bit too dark for me and pretty much blends in. Even though it blends in there is some of a glow there. Right now I’m having a love-hate relationship with this highlighter.

Rimmel lip liner in red diva- Believe it or not, this is my very first lip liner ever! I used to not really ever see the point of lip liners. Then I realized how bad I am at putting on lipstick. It can be hard to put it on clean. The lip liner really helps. I started off with a plain red one because I have a couple red lipsticks.
