My Haul & Experience

Sooo... I gave in again,
& went shopping. 
My lovviee had some extra money...
& he took me shopping.
I wanted some lush,
& saw there was one about 30 mins away.
One thing i learned, its def. and hour away...
& its at this really high end "mall"
with saks, nordstrom, like several mac counters,
chanel store, lv, etc.
I was certainly beyond out of my element!
But i was so glad i went!
Got some great things,
& it was an awesome experience.
Not gonna say what i got, for the sake of not ruining my haul
coming up on monday.
But i was so happy to leave that expensive place & go to a dollar store.
more my style...

but anyyywho.
I hit my 100 sub mark!
So Tuesday there will be a contest posted on my youtube channel!
But i have vids recorded all the way til wed...
then im gonna take a break from uploading at least to try and get more views.
So i'll have a couple days where i won't have to record!!!!

well thanks for reading!
stay beautiful!

All You Magazine!

One definite recommendation that i have for
all of you out there that love
saving money,
I urge you to pick up All You Magazine.
This can only be purchased at WalMart since it is there magazine.
It has loads of coupons.
I found one in mine for $5 off a $10 NYC purchase.

There was a $3 off Neutrogena coupon,
$2 off Lubriderm...
It also has more than just beauty coupons!
its a great value.
It ended up only costing me $2.25 or so,
and i already saved twice that with one coupon!!!
The subscription is about $20 a year, if i'm not mistaken.
Thanks for reading!
&& Stay beautiful!

A series focusing on eye makeup looks,

product reviews

Sorry I have no posted in like a week!
ughhh i'm so ashamed! I really didn't
want this to get neglected.
I've just been so busy making a few contest entry
I find out one tonight...
So we'll seee.
but who knows.
I wanted to take this time in the blog..
to review a few things. Give you my opinion...
I purchased all of these products,
& am not affiliated with any of these companies.

First Product is the Sephora Lip Attitude [Chic] C24
This is like one of my favorite lipsticks!
its beautiful!
Creamy, has a nice staying power.
I wear this like almost like half the week!
i cannot get enough!!!
Very sleek black packaging!
Cheap price tag.
Visit any Sephora store, or

  • Product: 5 out of 5
  • Packaging: 5 out of 5
  • Quality: 5 out of 5
  • Overall: 5 out of 5
  • Would I buy again? Yes
  • Price: $6
Next Product is E.L.F's Complexion Perfection Powder
I know anyone who's anyone knows about E.L.F's awesome prices!
This is a pressed powder that evens out your skin tone.
It's a combination of yellow, blue, green, & red powders.
This is super smooth,
very easy to use.
I definitely see a difference in my skin when i use this!
This has become a must for me each and everyday.
go to

  • Product: 5 out of 5
  • Packaging: 5 out of 5
  • Quality: 5 out of 5
  • Overall: 5 out of 5
  • Would I buy again? Yes
  • Price: $3
LA Colors Shimmering Loose Eyeshadow
This product can be purchased at any Dollar Tree,
or check out
This is a really nice product.
Its very nicely pigmented,
it gives a great shimmery glow, & they have such pretty colors.
My issue is that it has HORRIBLE packaging,
& it comes with a brush that is always so messed up.
The packaging doesn't even seem logical!
But i did find a way around it!
You can pop open the container [after some work]
& store it in your own container!
definitely much better.
So I went and got other colors cause I love it!

  • Product: 5 out of 5
  • Packaging: 1 out of 5
  • Quality: 5 out of 5
  • Overall: 4 out of 5
  • Would I buy again? Yes
  • Price: $1-$2
Lastly, My final review is on the Smashbox Color Correcting Primer in Green.
I recently got a sample of this at Sephora to try.
So glad I did not buy!!!
I mean it is very soft,
just like every other Smashbox product.
But I didn't notice any difference in my redness,
nor did i see a difference in my foundation application.
I want something that's going to do what its supposed to,
if i pay all that money.

  • Product: 3 out of 5
  • Packaging: 5 out of 5
  • Quality: 2 out of 5
  • Overall: 3 out of 5
  • Would I buy again?No
  • Price: $$17[travel size]-$38[full size]
Hope you all enjoyed my reviews!!!!
I have lots of stuff up now on my youtube!!!
you can find me by searching amariew340!

120 Palette Favorites

So finally getting my pictures up of the 120 palette i bought from ebay.
Mostly have good things to say about this.
I love allll the colors they are very smooth,
such good pigmentation...
But the negative about this is that its not by BH cosmetics
or coastal scents so its a little different.
The matte shades are less smooth...
& i really wish the case was made a little different.
But all in all i love it.
Such a great buy.

Here it is....
side one...
Starts at whites, goes to greys and blacks,
then green to blues.
Followed by purple shades.
Then pinks, to reds, to creams and browns...

Second side.
This has a row of marbled shades on the right hand side.
Starting from top goes from blues,
to purples,
then to greens and light greens
then yellows and oranges.

Here are the best swatches i could manage,
six of my favorite shades.
they have no names...

starting at the top,
a dark brown with gold flecks, semi shimmer.
A coppery reddish brown, high shimmer.
Into a bright coral, semi shimmer
a golden yellow, matte.
An irridescent fuschia shade with purplish tints.
Finally a very shimmery dark gray.
I had 12 all together,
but the other picture got deleted.
Sorry this took so long,
if you'd like more swatches let me know.

I will be doing another blog later tonight featuring some of my new videos...
& the sunday sale alert from the LOVELY budgetbeautiful!
go visit her pages..
budgetbeautiful on youtube,

stay beautiful everyone!
enjoy your weeks!
