While we were out I was able to pick up a few different items. Mainly just quick buys that caught my eye.
On Friday night we hit a CVS Pharmacy in order to pick up some essentials for the weekend. While there I spotted two bottles of Essie that I thought were beautiful and this Seche Vitte I had not seen before.
The red Essie is Wrapped in Rubies. It is a beautiful reddish burgundy color. In the bottle you may notice a gold shimmer. This does not translate to the nail very well, but the color is very lovely on the nail. Hopefully I will have some swatches of it later in the week. The turquoise Essie is Trophy Wife. I was very intrigued by the shimmery color in the bottle. I am really excited to try this one out! Lastly the Seche Vitte bottle is called Natural. I purchased the bottle because it is states on the bottle "matte finish nail treatment". This is a good lesson to read the box the product comes in. While I was hoping this was a matte topcoat, it turns out to be a basecoat. Which is disappointing as I have been on the lookout for a good matte topper. I will still use it, just have to continue the search it seems!
On Saturday night we stopped by Walmart to get groceries and I could not help to hit the polish aisle.
I have gotten into the habit of buying travel sized lotions when I see ones I have not tried before. The travel sizes are cheaper, but the same product and you never know what you will find. While at Walmart I purchased the Nivea Creme, Sauve Advanced Therapy, and Nivea Soft. As I have fairly dry skin I am always on the search for a moisturizer that does not leave my skin feeling slimy. The nail polishes in the pictures are Revlon Scented Parfume. The lighter purple shimmers silver and has more of a blue tone and is called Not So Blueberry. The other polish is a shimmery pink hued purple called Grape Icy. These are supposed to be "scented when dry". I have not tried them out yet to see if that is truly the case, but I will give a full report when I do!
On our way back to Austin today, I talked my husband into stopping at Ulta. Probably the most dangerous of the stops as I can spend a good deal of time in that store.
Ulta is having a sale on China Glaze, if anyone is interested. All collections are buy two get one free! I bought three, a teal shimmer called Deviantly Daring, a beautiful rosy pink called Sex on the Beach, and a silver and purple duochrome named No Plain Jane. I love duochrome polishes, so the No Plain Jane was a must have as soon as I saw it. I thought the pink was just fabulous in the bottle and had not looked at the name until I wrote up the blog. The Ultra brand polish is called Jaded and is a dark green shimmer which looks like it is a duochrome silver, but I am a little skeptical about that. By the way, the Ulta polishes are still on sale for $2.00. The small Smashbox bottle is Photo Finish Foundation Primer. It states that it is Hydrating and as I mentioned I am horribly dry, so when I saw this I wanted to give it a try. The little bottles of primer are on sale for $10.00. The lipstick is Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sugar Plum. It goes on very smooth and has a nice texture. After swatching it, I am a little worried it might be too dark though. I will have to try it a little more and see. Lastly, I purchased Revlon's Just Bitten Lipstain in Instinct. I have not tried it yet, but will give a full report when I do.
That is the hauls for the weekend! Talk to ya'll soon!
