Welcome to my World of Beauty and Reviews!

I finally got my hands on the infamous INGLOT 10 Freedom System palette. I decided to play around with it today and came up with a look and I have to say these shadows are amazingly pigmented!

New Vanity Mirror!

It is incredibly bright and I think it came out Amazing!

Polish Hoarders Anonymous!

So the 1st step in any program is admitting we have a problem...

Ulta Rewards

Happy Sunday everyone! Today I went to Ulta to finally redeem the points or rewards that I earned. After some careful thought I decided to put my 7 point credit towards a perfume. For those that know me I am not big on switching up on my scents too often. Remember that because a perfume smells great on someone else it does not mean that it will smell the exact same way on you. Everyones body chemistry is different and interprets scents differently. Over the last 10 years and I am being so serious I have worn the same perfume! SERIOUSLY! I have tried switching things up a bit here and there and for some reason family and friends know me by my signature scent by now and I am quite pleased with the perfume as well. I use to get asked all the time what I was wearing and they would buy it to only be disappointed because it didn't smell the same on them .

To me scent is everything. A person can look great dress great but if they don't smell good to me its just blah. My sense of smell is on of my strongest senses and for me I am extremely careful when choosing one. I have maybe 5 different bottles ranging from Juicy, to Ralph Lauren, and Philosophy. For me it was personal not to change my perfume because of my Dad. He is visually impaired and his sense of smell has heightened due to his vision loss I assume. So whenever he couldn't find me or was wondering where I was in the house , or if he wanted to know if I was in the house all he had to do is look for my scent and he immediately knew I was close. Very sentimental for him and I he found comfort and so did I  . My husband has also gotten use to my scent and whenever I try to switch it up he says "it smells nice" but when I wear my original I get " WOW you smell GREAT" ! ha ha ha

So here it is...
Nothing super Fancy but If I ever hit pan on anything it is always this bottle!
As you can see I am almost close and well so bummed.

So after going to Ulta I was browsing the perfumes and one Scent seriously stopped me in my tracks!

I am not easily impressed by perfumes and this to me was AMAZING. I like light and sweet type perfumes. Not to pungent in your face Wholly crap did you bathe in your perfume type scent! LOL

Pretty Decent Size also:

Originally when I went this morning I picked up the box directly behind the tester thinking it was the one that corresponded to the bottle:

Was soo wrong. Totally different smell too strong and got the Clippies on my Level 1 reward free!
I immediately drove back to Ulta and thankfully the store person was sweet enough to dig the Last Bottle for me!

Packaging is soo Adorable and so me Pink cant go wrong!
10x cuter than that other bottle I grabbed.

How cute is this top?!!

** So this runs for about $85 for 4.25 oz. With my rewards from level 6 I was able to apply $45 towards this purchase. So I only paid $40! How awesome was that?**

** This does come in a 3.4 oz bottle but they were completely out. Girl told me it sells out super quickly and all they had was this one big one left.**

Hope you all have had a great weekend will chat soon !

Ulta freebies!

Hey gals, so I recently got a catalog from Ulta and as I was flipping through it I noticed that I had some points accumulated.

So I went to my Local Ulta and tried to redeem it and to my surprise was a little more complex than I expected . There is a list from levels 1-6 . I am 7 so I didn't know where to begin.

So here were my Options:

After speaking to one of the girls they told me that I can combine so I can item from level 4 and a 3 or an item from 6 and  1 to complete a 7 etc you get the picture. Does that make sense?

So since I couldn't decide and it doesn't start till Sunday I decided that I will use a Number 6 which is $45 towards any fragrance and pick an Item from level 1. 

Since I was at Ulta waling around I saw there Sign  that stated Spend $17and get:


I got a couple things and Here were my freebies:

This is an $88 value for free!! Love the bags!

Go Go Girlfriend Box

Happy Valentine's day my fellow Beauty Bloggies! So much to my Surprise to day I had a little package waiting for me. Let me begin by saying that the customer service with this company is great. The Little Black Box is somewhat similar to that of the other company I have talked about the Pretty Pink Box.
With this company you pay $12 for the membership a month and you receive a monthly box filled with sample and sometimes even full size items. There is also a $6.99 which only ships it every 2 months. You can earn points towards boxes for doing a review on there site and with the points you accumulate you can get another free box or put towards purchases of items on there website. FREE SHIPPING!!! by USPS.

 They even include a list of all the products and descriptions!

This brush is such good quality and Pink enough said !

At first I thought these were Breath Mints...

Apparently its a towel cant wait to try it!

** So Overall I am thrilled and impressed with my 1st box. There was a delay in my shipment because there were some kinks that needed to be worked out on an item but they emailed me immediately and apologized and made up for it by adding a few extra things.**

Hope you guys all have a Wonderful Valentin's Day and have enjoyed this post!

Ikea Organizing

Hello my Bloggies , I was trying to organize the drawer in my vanity a little better because I felt like some of my products were being pushed to the back and not being used. I went to Ikea recently and found some ideas better yet a wall of ideas LOL

These are the Anordna Lyx 
I have not yet found a use for this only because I have my brush holders already but came w the set. Here is an idea if you are looking for something to hold your makeup brushes. 

or another use...

Now with this I found that it can only hold obviously round lipsticks such as, Mac, Wet n Wild, Ulta, etc.
If you have more square ones like me :
 Here is a Rimmel and a Hardcandy (round) that does not fit in the slot :-(

 Comes with larger holes and smaller holes to accommodate whatever you want.

Another option is to remove the layer with the holes and just use the trays as is! Thinking I can use this better that way!

My one organizer for mascaras and concealers, and gel liners etc.

This was my favorite in the set because I can fit my tube like items and I can see them all.

** The Ikea organizers range from $7.99-$9.99 for a 3 pack. Very Budget Friendly**

Hope you all enjoyed . Will work on some swatches on products for you all soon! Have a Great Valentine's Day!

My little Haul form the Supermarket! ha ha

So recently I went to my local Acme store here in NJ and there had a section where theres was a range of items from beauty products to food items etc. marked 75% off. Well let me just show you

Where to Begin !!

So let me start by saying that I set my budget to no more than $10!! Right off the bat!

 And now for the Best Bart... Drumroll please!!

$9.61!! for 13 items!!!!!

So I tried not to go too crazy as tempting as it was wanting to take the whole bin but I only got what I would use and really liked. It was fun trying to hunt for a good bargain.

Other Items they had but didn't get:

Lash Stiletto Mascaras
Almay Products Mascaras Foundations ets
Maybelline Foundations,
Wet and Wild Color Icon ( were smashed but for $.79 maybe someone could repair it at home?)
Tons of Lipliners from Wet n Wild ( I have never used a lip liner just me I guess lol
