Drugstore and Sally's Beauty Haul

I bought a lot of hair care products these last 2 weeks, and I STILL ended up having to get it done at a salon!

Anyway, I scored a lot of great deals.

Drugstore and Sally's Beauty Haul

Yes to Carrots lip butter in "Sweet Fig"

Maybelline color show nail lacquer in " Born With It"

Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser (because I had a breakout from the Yes to Blueberries makeup wipes)

Black Radiance blushes in " Raspberry" and "Warm Berry"

Tangle Teezer (I finally picked this up from Sally's.... It really works well at detangeling my transitioning hair)

Denman brush (I use this to comb through my hair after using the Tangle Teezer)

I bought these next products for under $4.00 each at Walmart and Target during the week.

Dot by Marc Jacobs

New From Marc Jacobs........... 'Dot'

Dot by Marc Jacobs

The main notes of the fragrance are: red berries, dragon fruit, honeysuckle, jasmine, orange blossom, coconut water, vanilla, musk and driftwood. It will come in 30, 50 and 100 mL bottles and will be sold in stores starting in August.

I'm sure this will smell just as amazing as all of his other fragrances, but I'm mostly drawn to the ladybug packaging.  I like the addition of coconut water to scents so I can't wait to try this one.

Janelle Monae: New Face of CoverGirl

Janelle Monae "CoverGirl"

CoverGirl recently announced to the public via twitter that Janelle Monae is going to be the new face of the brand.
  "Welcome @JanelleMonae to the @CoverGirl fam!"  Excited to go on this beauty journey with you!" ~tweeted from CoverGirl's official twitter page.

 During Janelle's interview with Vogue she revealed a few beauty secrets.
On her personal makeup looks:
I take a minimalist approach to my wardrobe and I do the same with my makeup. I don’t look at it as a mask. I don’t overdo it. A bold shade of red or pink—something that pops—brings the whole look together. I keep my eyes pretty simple but I like to make my lashes a little darker and thicker.
 Janelle's 10 page CoverGirl ad in Vogue will hit stands in September 2012.

Nails: Nails Inc. "Chelsea Square" and "Jermyn Street"

This week I decided to switch things up and wear Nails Inc's "Chelsea Square" and "Jermyn Street."

"Chelsea Square" is a chunky rose gold glitter, and "Jermyn Street" is a soft taupe/ brown nail color.

This is my first time trying Nails Inc. and I love the application.  Both of these polishes went on opaque and streak free.  This is 2 coats with a top coat.

July Empties!

These are the products that I used up in the month of July.  A lot of skin care products this month.

July 2012 Empties

Simple moisturizing facial wash- Already repurchased

Simple smoothing facial scrub- Already repurchased

Simple cleansing facial wipes- Already repurchased

Macadamia healing oil spray- I like this a lot, but I'm not sure if I'm going to repurchase because I think I prefer the One 'n Only brand argan oil hair spray. (and it's MUCH cheaper than the Macadamia products)

Degree body response deodorant- This worked well, but I usually just get whatever deodorant is on sale.

Urban Decay makeup setting spray in "De Slick"- this is my favorite setting spray.  It keeps my makeup from sliding off when it's super hot outside.  I will repurchase the full size of this.

Pro Style shine n' jam conditioning gel-  This is my favorite hair gel because it holds my edges down and I never experience product buildup.  Already repurchased.

Pond's dry skin cream- I've been using this for years, but I don't know if I'll repurchase because I really like the Simple products.

Village Naturals aromatherapy body butter in "Lavender and Chamomile"- I would repurchase this because it works just as well as the Body Shop body butters, and it's a lot cheaper.

Let me know what you think.
