Small body shop haul

The Body shop was having a great sale the other day and here are some clearance items i picked up. I had never been there before but with some time to kill i stopped by. I didnt even know they sold makeup. I figured i'd get some stuff on sale to try. The 2 quads were $5.00 and the lipsticks were $1.00 yes !.00 i was shocked the pigmentation is great and they would be great fall colors. Check out your local store as they also had other items on sale plus their body stuff.

Mac Semi Precious Haul

These are the items that I managed to get from this collection. When I first saw pics of the items I thought I would want much more but that died down over time.

Here we have golden gaze mes this e/s is gorgoeus its a dirty gold color. I got the 128 brush I was going to get another blush brush anyway and the 234 blending brush. I like the different sides of the brush its different and I was able to use the 128 with cream blush on one side and an msf on the other.

What did you get?

Lipstick tag!

Ok so i have never been tagged so i guess i'm it. Thanks Ms. Viva Glam for tagging me you can find her blog here

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?

I didnt use her lipstick but she used them on me to give me bright red lips and rosey cheeks for photos as i was dressed in her oversized jewelry and clothes.

2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?

Hmm maybe around 16 it was a jordana lipstick which was blue with blue glitter. LOL i thought it was the greatest thing in the world boy was i a novice i wore it all the time.

3. Pink or red lipstick?


4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?

Nars Jungle red. Love mattes and this one is great

5. And the cheapest?

Wet and Wild they do have some for 99 cents although i have been known to dig through a bargain bin to find some off brand for 25 cents.

6. What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?

Tried to use it as an eyeshadow base, yeah that was a no go

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?

I recently discovered the new wet and wild color icon? lipsticks i mean for only 2.99 they have great pigmentation and variety plus its easily accessible at most drugstores.

I would like to tag Lily Seymour, Nessafoo, Marked for Glamour
