Latest bargain

So here is my latest haul, I mean steal from Beauty.com/drugstore.com site. I love those sister sites because they have everything and always have deals and coupons going on.
I had more than $20 in store credit from previous purchases and on top of that they were offering other promotions. I scored those 4 items for fraction of the cost. Instead of $53 I only paid $9.15 including a two day shipping. I mean can it get any better? I will answer that. Nope!

Here is what I got:
Origins Blade Runner (for the hubby, see? I am not that selfish).
Revlon Moon Drops Lip conditioner.
Revlon Photo ready Concealer.
It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush in Je Ne Sais Quoi

Happy shopping!

Beauty.com Haul

Beauty.com Haul

There are a few things on my wish list that I have been wanting to get for the longest time. On a daily basis, I come across a product or an item that I would like to try, and I end up adding it to my wish list until it became enormous and unmanageable; therefore, I decided to dig in it and treat myself to some of the items I’ve been wanting.
This is my first time ordering from Beauty.com. It is one of my new favorite sites and the customer service is amazing. On top of that, they always have amazing deals, gifts, and coupons.

My Haul:
L’Occitane Exfoliant Lumiére Minute (brightening instant exfoliator)
Amande Huile Tonique (firming and anti-water tonic body Oil)
L’Occitane Regard Radieux Eye Roll On
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer
Beauty Blender

and finally got Bioderma Cleanser from Amazon.

Well, this is the start. There are still a lot more items on the list and for some reason, the list never gets any smaller, on the contrary, it keeps growing.

Best Cut the Crease Look: Adele

Hands down Adele has the best Cut-The-Crease look!

The smokey neutral colors plus the dark cat eyeliner paired with a matte lip color are just too fabulous. I absolutely love her makeup looks.

Here are a couple pictures from Vogue UK an US for you to enjoy and get inspired.

Show me the red

The best thing about winter is the ability to pile on layers and layers of clothes plus the glamorous RED lips. I am usually a pink & nude lip-color type of girl, until I came across this red lip color from CoverGirl lip Perfection line, Flame. It is more of a berry strawberry red with blue undertones. I think this is the perfect red shade for me and I love it!
As we all know, red lips make your teeth look yellow; however, having the blue undertones works against that and actually make your teeth look more white.
On top of all, that lipstick has a great stay on power. What better lipstick would you ever get? Especially, when red lips are so in, this season!
Ladies, do your lips a favor and snatch one for your own glamor shot!

Kisses,
Arki

MyGlam Bag

I just received my second MyGlam goodie bag!

This is actually their second bag released as they are brand new company. And OMG this tiny bag has some great products. I am impressed already.

I am super impressed by MyGlam picks, especially this month. They definitely seem more caring and thoughtful than the other monthly subscription Birchbox. I am not sure if this is because the owners behind it are YouTube Guru’s that know what they are talking about, or maybe because it is still a brand new company, but either way I hope it continues in that way because they are doing a great job.

If you are not familiar with MyGlam or Birchbox is, let me explain a little. it is a monthly subscription of $10 that you can either commit to or do on a monthly bases whenever the budget allows. What it offers is a bag full of mini or even full size products, depending on how lucky you are. The idea is to introduce you to new products and open your eyes to other brands. The reason I love it is because it is only $10 for a great selection of products that all together retail for at least $20. I also love to receive a surprise package in my mail every month and look forward to opening it. Come on, Makeup as a surprise?? Who would ever say no to such thing?!

Happy Monday All!
