December Favorites!!!

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by to my blog. Today I want to share with you guys my December favorites. Let's just jump right into it.
Makeup/ Face/Scent
First favorite I want to talk about is the Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent Toner on your left hand side of the photo above. Love this toner it takes off all of the extra makeup on my face that my cleanser didn't get off. Plus it also helps keep my acne at bae. This toner does make my skin feel a little dry and tight after using it,but that could be because this toner does have salicylic acid in it. I found myself putting on moisturizer after. Overall I really have been enjoying this toner and would repurchase it again.

Next favorite item that I loved this month was my Milani Baked Blush (Luminoso). This blush is so inexpensive but the quality of this item is amazing. Its so pigmented and not chalky like some other drug store blushes I have tried out in the past. The color of this blush is a pretty warm pink that gives you this beautiful flush and glow to your cheeks. Definitely a blush I will keep re buying.

The last item in this category are my Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black and White Perfumes. You guys these perfumes are amazing!!!! I first heard about these perfumes from MakeupbyTiffanyD if you don't know who she is. She is also a fellow blogger and also as a youtube channel. After hearing all of the amazing stuff she said about this item and how much she loves it. I had to go out and get me some and try it out. Was she right! These perfumes smell amazing separately or layed together. Which is the way I have been wearing them since I bought them. As I am sure you can see from the photo above these are not full sized bottles. They are the traveled sized ones, since I don't wear perfume that often. These are different in the sense I haven't stopped wearing them! Love them :)  
Makeup Brushes 
Last but not least favorites from this past month have been these two makeup brushes above. I just want to say before I get started talking about these items is that I am not going to say much since I am planning on doing a whole blog post just talking about these two makeup brushes. So be sure to look out for that post soon. Back to my two favorite makeup brushes. First is the Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush. This brush is super dense and soft. Its a get buffer brush. Love using it with foundation since it gives you these beautiful airbrush finish hence the name of the brush. Overall a great brush so worth the money.

Chanel Number Four Blush Brush. A other great brush super soft to the touch. This brush picks up product so easily. This brush I find works best if you lay the blush on your cheeks then lightly blend it out. Just a great brush a little more on the expensive side of makeup brushes but so wroth the money! 

That's all of my December favorites. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and found it helpful if you were thinking about picking up any of these items for yourself. Don't forget to follow my blog so you know when new blog post go up. Talk you guys soon.

A Sweater Haul From ForEver21, GAP + MORE!!!

Hey everyone,Today for my blog post I want to share with you a few sweaters and a other item that I have picked up the last few weeks. I was going thru my closet a month ago and realized I don't really have any sweaters to wear this winter season. If you have been following me on Instagram then you have already seen these sweaters been put into whole outfits. And if you don't follow me on Instagram what are you waiting for ? My Instagram is Shopaholic8450 Without further more lets get into this haul.
 Here are all of the sweaters I have picked up in the last few weeks. I am going to try list prices for everything shown here if I don't I am sorry that just means I couldn't find that piece of clothing item on line. Alright starting on the left hand corner of the picture above. First is this white sweater with two small splits on each side of it. Very comfortable sweater to wear a little on the heavy side. Love the braided detail that goes down this sweater. This sweater was from Forever21 it was ($27.90).

Next is this black and white stripe sweater from GAP. This a very long sweater on me it almost looks like dress I would wear it like a dress but it as two very long splits on the side of it so that is the reason I cant really wear it like a sweater dress. If you are thinking about getting this clothing item for yourself I would say go down a size. I wore this past Sunday to a family dinner gathering and it was so comfortable, soft and warm. The sleeves are tighter then body just so it balances it out. This clothing item was ($39.99).

The next sweater in the picture above is this big chunky turtle neck sweater it also as the little detail to it of the braids going down the shirt. I don't normally like turtle necks since I feel like I am beaning chocked. This turtle neck is not like other turtle necks the turtle neck on this sweater lays more flat on your chest so it doesn't really cover your neck much. Super comfortable and oh my gosh is it warm no need a jacket when wearing this. This sweater is from Forever21 it was ($12.99) Not bad of a price at all.

Last sweater I want to talk about is this dark gray one from American Eagle. un like the other sweaters that I have talked about in this haul this one is on the lite side of a sweater. Not sure if you can really tell from the photo but this sweater as zippers on the side instead of splits. This one was a other comfortable sweater a little more form fitting to the body. This clothing is about ($44.95)

 The last item shown above is not a sweater obviously lol... Its a pair of jeggings from American Eagle. These are my first pair of them to be honest I was always scared of jeggings because they seem really tight and a little uncomfortable. Man was I wrong! These are super comfortable and of course tight but since these are very stretchy I feel like I can wear them all day and not be uncomfortable in them. If anyone of you guys were wondering what bottoms I wore with all of these sweaters, that would be these jeggins.They looked great with every single item. This jeggins were ($39.99).

That's all for this clothing haul. Hope you guys enjoyed this haul. And found a clothing item that you might want to go out and get for yourself. As always make sure you follow my blog to know when new post go up or you can also follow me on Twitter @Shopaholic84504. I do tweet out my link to my blog on there.

Outfit Of The Day! From This Past Weekend...

Hey everyone! For today's blog post I want to show you guys a outfit that I wore this past weekend for a family gathering. The sweater and jeggings that I am going to show you in this outfit is going to be in a haul post next week. So make sure you come back to my blog next week to see what I picked up in that haul. Ok without further more lets get to the outfit of the day.
First I want to say excuse the photo for the quality and lighting I know its not my greatest photo. I wasn't going to post this on here since I already have this photo on my Instgram. So if you follow me on there then you have seen this already. I really do like this outfit and I thought I would share what I wore this past weekend with you guys since not all of you know I have a instgram. Anyways lets get into the outfit. 

For top I wore this long almost looks like dress on me sweater from GAP. Its a black sweater with whites stripes on it. Its super comfortable and soft. The body to this sweater is bagging but the arms are tighter so it all balances out. It also as two big splits on each side. This sweater would look great with leggings since it covers your front and back.

 Bottoms I wore my jeggings from American Eagle. These are my very first pair of jeggings that I have own and I love them, they are super comfortable and super stretchy which I like when jeans are tighter.

Accessories I just wore my Burberry scarf since it was super chilly that day and I wanted a little bit more wramth. Last but not least I wore these light brown boots that I have had for years now but don't really wear them at often since they are a little bit uncomfortable on my feet. I cant explain to much since they are super cute. They have two buckles on each of the boots so you can tighten them if they feel loose on you, they also have a one and half inch heel to them. So it gives me a little bit of height. :)

That's my outfit of the day from this past weekend. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. As always make sure you are following my blog so you know when new posts go up. Let me know in a comment below if you guys would like to see more of these outfits of the day post? Talk to you guys soon.

UPDATE POST ON THE LAURA MERCIER TINTED MOISTURIZER, COVERGIRL THE SUPERSIZER MASCARA

Hey everyone! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Today I am going to do a updated post on the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and the Cover Girl Supersizer Mascara that I hauled a few weeks ago and said I was going to do on a update on them and let you guys know what were my thoughts on them and how I like them. Ok without further a due lets just get started.
First I am going to start off with the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with spf 20. The one that I have and that is in the picture is just a sample size one that I got from sephora with my beauty insider points. They gave me the shade (Nude) which I found to be to light for my skin tone so that was a little disappointing, since I was really excited about this item.  

The good things I can say about the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is that it blends really easy and smooth into your skin. It is also a light weight formula so it wont feel heavy on the skin which to me is always a really great thing. This tinted moisturizer gave my skin a really pretty dewy glow to my skin. I used my beauty blender to apply this if any of you guys were curious. This product doesn't give you a white cast on your face when you want to take pictures since I find that most face items with spf in it as a tendency to do that. Finally the question that most of you are wondering would I repurchase this item again? My answer would have to be yes I would I was very happy with this tinted moisturizer. I would just get a shade darker.

The last item I want to give you guys on a update on is the CoverGirl SuperSizer Mascara. The first thing I noticed about this mascara right away when I opened it is the brush. Its a very thin brush that flares out at the start of the brush. Also it as little spikes on the brush that act like a comb to your lashes so that helps to take away any clumps that might happen when applying it and also does a great job on separating your lashes but giving you lots of volume.

The last two things that I want to say about this brush is that it is rubber so it bends really easy and since its so thin it makes it the perfect brush to get those little lashes in the concers of your eyes. This mascara is a very dry mascara so if you don't like that then this mascara might not be for you. Not sure if I mention this already but its a very nice easy mascara to work with and it comes off at night super easy. I will be repurchasing this product again.

That's all for this update. Hope you guys enjoyed reading this post and found it helpful if you were thinking about buying these items for yourself. Let me know in the comments below if you have already tried this products out and what were your thoughts on them I would love to know. Like always don't forget to follow my blog and my twitter so you know when new post goes up. Talk to you guys soon.

EMPTIES!!! AND WOULD I REPURCHASE THESE PRODUCTS AGAIN???

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog today I am going to be doing a other products that I have used up. Who elas feels like these post are coming more often? I know I sure do. Anyways without further a due lets jump right into the products.

HAIR
First we are going to start with hair empties. The first hair product that I have used up is the John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Leave In Conditioner. This was a good leave in conditioner the scent is really nice and not to over powering which I like. Overall good product. The only downfall is that it didn't do much for my frizzy hair. Not sure if I would repurchase this item again. Since this is my third bottle already.

Second item in the hair category is the Pantene Blow Out Dry Shampoo. I really enjoyed this dry shampoo. I have enjoyed it so much that I have bought a other bottle of it. I have never used the patene dry shampoo before and to be honest I never knew that pantene had dry shampoo. This dry shampoo did a great job on soaking up all of the oil in my hair without leaving build up. The scent to this dry shampoo smells like there shampoos. Which is a pleasant scent by the way.

FACE
 Next category is face. This category as the most items out of all of them that I am going to be showing you today. First item is the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. Now I am not going to go in much detail about this product since I did do a whole post on just this item last Friday. So if you are interested on what I have to say about this item please go and check out last weeks post. What I can say about these towelettes are that they are amazing and I have gone thru so many of these packets no matter how many times I want to try different makeup wipes I have always find my self going back to these. These wipes take off all of my makeup with just one wipe even mascara! They also don't bother my eyes which is a big plus for me. Overall great makeup wipes and yes I have already bought a new packet.

Moving on to the Murad Clarifying Wipes For Blemish - Prone Skin. I really enjoyed these wipes never have used them before. I don't use these wipes to remove makeup I used them in the morning to remove any oil, dirt or left over makeup from the night before. They do a great job on cleaning my face in the morning. They do dry out my skin a tiny bit but that's because they are clarifying wipes so I kinda expected that already. They also do a great job on keeping my acne at bae  which is a nice extra bonus. Now for the scent to these wipes I would its ok you definitely get use to it. Over all great product and something I will be re buying again soon and totally recommend to anyone to try. Don't think I said this already but they come with 30 wipes in a packet.

Third item that I have used up is the Masque Rose Sephora Rose Mask. I am also not going to say to much about this product or the next one since I have done a whole post on these items talking about how I like them and what I didn't like about them and also what I thought about them. So if you are interested in what I have to say about this product and the next one that I will be talking about, please feel free to go and check out that post. What I can say about it is that I did enjoy the mask it was different since it was my first time using a sheet mask. But over all it was good and I am looking to try other ones.
 
The last product in these category is the Sephora Honey Eye Mask. Really enjoyed this eye mask.This was my first ever eye mask I have ever tried and I surprised myself and really liked it. Definitely will be repurchasing this again.

Body + More 
Ok guys last two items. First is the Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion. I didn't use this lotion for my body I used it for my hands at night before going to bed. It was a good hand lotion it kept my hands nice and hydrated. The scent was really nice and clean smelling not over powering which is great since I am not a big fan of lotions that have a very strong perfume scent to them especially at night when I am going to bed. This lotion is on my list to repurchase again.

Last product that I have used up is the Johnson's Baby Shampoo. This shampoo I use to clean my makeup brushes. This shampoo does a great job on cleaning my brushes. And leaves them smelling really nice. Already have a other bottle.

And that's all for my empties this time around. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what have been your empties? Make sure you follow my blog so you know when new blog post goes up. Talk to you guys soon.

REVIEW:NEUTROGENA MAKEUP REMOVER CLEANSING TOWELETTES

Hey everyone! Thanks for taking the time to stop and read my blog. Today I want to talk about and give you guys a review on my favorite makeup towelettes that have been showing up on other post on here. They are the Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes. Ok without further more lets jump right into it.
 Here they are they are the ones in the blue packet. I am sure you guys know that neutrogena as many different kinds of these makeup towelettes but these are my all time favorite. They come with 25 pre moistened towelettes in each pack. These towelettes cost about ($6.99) but I also have seen them for $7.99 or even $8.99 so it just depends on where you go to buy them.

Love these wipes because at night when I am ready to take off my makeup they take off all of my makeup with just one towelette. Without leaving your skin dry or oilying feeling. I also found that these wipes are great for taking off eye makeup even mascara because they won't irritate my eyes. Which is a big plus for me since I have very sensitive eyes. 
I would 100% recommend these wipes to anyone who is looking for some new makeup wipes. I have used these wipes for years and I am never disappointed by them.
They are soft towelettes to the touch and super wet. The best part is that these wipes don't dry out really quick they really do stay wet all the way down to the last one. The way I like to store them is the opening face down. I just cant say good enough things about these wipes they are just great makeup wipes.
 
That's all for this review. Hope you guys enjoyed on reading my thoughts on the Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes and found it helpful. If you guys have already used these makeup wipes please feel free to leave your thoughts on them in a comment below. Also let me know would you guys recommend these wipes? Talk to you guys soon.

A SEPHORA & CVS HAUL!

Hey everyone. Hope everyone is doing well, and welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to share with you guys a few items that I picked up at Sephora and CVS recently. Without further more let's jump right into this haul.
 Here is everything I picked up recently most of this stuff I have ran out of and needed and the rest is things I have wanted to try out but have not picked it up until now. Two items I have tired out for the first time this past Sunday and there is one more item that I have tried out already. So I will let you know my first impressions on them. The Sephora stuff is mixed in. I guess I will start with the CVS items since there is more of that. Then finish off the haul with Sephora items.

Pantene Original Fresh Dry Shampoo: I have tried out the pantene dry shampoo's before and really enjoyed it. They do a great job on soaking up all of the oil in hair but also leaving it looking fresh. The one thing I really like about this dry shampoo that I found others that I have tried in the past do is this one wont leave a lot of build up in your hair. ($7.49)

Biore Deep Cleaning CHARCOAL Pore Strips: I have already tried out one of these strips. Overall they did a good job on cleaning out my pores. One thing I didn't really like is that they didn't stick on very well on to on my nose. I found that I had to keep pressing it down so it wouldn't fall off. They come with 6 nose stripes in a box. I believe these stripes were ($8.99)  But don't quote me on that.
CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara: Now if you have been reading my blog posts lately then you know how much I have been loving my Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I still do don't get me wrong. But I have been hearing so many good things about this mascara that I had to try it out for myself and see what everyone is talking about. I haven't used it yet since I only got it today. But I will definitely be letting you guys know what I think of it and all that good stuff. ($7.49)

Oral B Cavity Defense Tooth Brush: This item I threw in just in for fun. I am sure you guys don't care what kind of tooth brush I use or maybe you do I don't know. I have always used the Oral B brand and really like there tooth brushes. I feel like I get a good clean with them. ($5.99)

 Elizabeth And James Nirvana Black Perfume: I normally don't buy perfume often since I don't wear or go thru perfumes that quickly to where I need to keep re buying them. But ever since MakeupbyTiffany D  which she is a youtuber for anyone who didn't know. Anyways ever since she started talking about it and how much she loves this perfume. I knew I had to go out and try it for myself. And oh my god! was she right! I love it I wore it for the first time this Sunday and fell in love with it. Last all day without it begin over powering the smell of this perfume is amazing. The notes in it are violet, sandalwood and vanilla.
As you can tell form the photo this is not the full sized one. I got the 0.24Fl Oz. bottle since I just wanted to try it and see how I like it. Love this perfume I know I only have wore it once but you guys need to go out and try it for yourself. ($12.00)

Laura Mercier Tented Moisturizer: The last item I didn't buy myself I got a free sample of by just using my beauty insider points at sephora. I was super excited about this item since this is a highly talked about beauty product in the beauty world as I am sure as many of you know already. Cant really say much about this item since I only have used it once already since I got it. But what I can say is that it blends very well and easy to the face. I find that I don't need to blot my face thru out the day which is very nice. That's all I really can say wish I had more to say about this item. But once I start really using it I will do a update post on this.

That's it for this cvs and sephora haul. Hope you guys enjoyed this haul and I guess mimi review on the items that I have tried already. And maybe found it helpful in some way. Let me know in the comments below if you guys have tried any of this products and what were thoughts were on them.
