A [large] Mostly Beauty Haul

As many of you know (if you read my tumblr than you know), skin care has been a major new obsession of mine. Yesterday and today, I did some serious shopping at Walgreens, Target, Bath and Body Works, Sephora, and Forever 21. Here are my purchases!

Bath and Body Works
Shea Cashmere Hand Cream: A favorite of mine, I always keep some in my purse, plus it was on sale for $6!
Dancing Water Pocket Bac: One of the only scents I can tolerate from here.

Forever 21
Cream Eyelet Head Scarf
Navy, White, Pink, and Blue Ikat Head Scarf
I could not resist picking these up, I love the headscarf trend but I wouldn't want to spend too much on one, so I can not feel bad about wearing these near the water. Plus, at $3.80 each, they are the most inexpensive ones out there.

SEPHORA (the only one that matters)
-Passion Fruit Daiquiri Lotion Sample
-Nars Eye Pencil Sharpener: I finally broke my cheapie Revlon one, hope this one works better.
-Clarins Toning Lotion: Have been dying to try this.
-Soap and Glory Hand Food: Another one I've been obsessing over.
-First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Creme: Looking forward to seeing how this helps my dry face, like the price point.
-Jack Black Lip Balm: Praying this helps my lips, these were totally sold out! I got the last one, so they must be good.

-Maybelline Master Brow: Heard many good things about this, looking forward to trying it out!
-Wet N Wild Silent Treatment Eye Trio: I've also read many good things about these, and this one looked beautiful!
-Maybeline Color Whisper in Some Like It Taupe: I had a $2 off coupon, so I had to try it!

-Nivea Mint and Minerals Chapstick: I haven't tried this one yet, and I finally finished my Milk and Honey
-Nivea Essentially Enriched Moisturizer: I have had 3 bottles of this this winter, and it's been mentioned here too. I love it!
-Maybeline BB Creme in Light Medium: I ran out of my Garnier BB Cream, so I figured I'd try this one to change it up. Plus, InStyle just had this listed as the best BB for young skin, so I could not resist. 

Whew! Have you been shopping lately? Let me know! Also, have you tried any of these products? Let me know your thoughts!


  1. That Maybelline Brow Master looks just like my Benefit brow pencil...and I'm sure it's much more affordable. You'll have to let me know how it works out!

    1. Definitely! I am really looking forward to try this. Jessica from Beautezine posted about it in her favorites video, and it really intrigued me. I've used it once and I really like it so far! It was like $7.49 or $7.99, good price!

  2. I'll have to try some of the Maybelline BB cream! Right now I have some Cover Girl BB cream which I like alright but if Maybelline has gotten stellar reviews I need to check it out! My favorite recent beauty buy is Kate Spade Twirl perfume. I picked some up at TJ Maxx and absolutely love it!
