Here is what I picked up:
Even though the headband craze has died down a bit I am still in love. I still try to wear one at least once a week. Here are some cute ones I saw tonight:
The center one is a little crazy but I think it would look great with an updo for a night out.
Both of these mini palettes were $10 each and great deals. The first one has three full size Stila eye shadows: Kitten (which as I mentioned here is one of my faves), Lame, and Chloe. The second one is one of Stila's travel palettes and comes with a cream blush in Hibiscus and 4 smaller eye shadows in pretty neutral shades (Snow Bunny, Valley Girl, Southern Belle, and City Chick). Both of these palettes seem great for my upcoming work travels.
I am really low on powder and while I was of course searching for Benefit Hello Flawless, I realized that this Ulta doesn't carry Benefit so instead I thought I'd try this one since it has a similar feel as the Benefit's. This is Too Faced Amazing Face. I tested it and just from the little bit I used it seems like a good product. I'll definitely keep you posted as I really haven't heard anything about this product before.
Lastly, I got some polish. I have been in love with OPI for a while now but I have lately been as attracted to Essie as I have been to OPI. I picked up two from each tonight. From OPI's Swiss Collection I got William Tell Me About OPI (left) and Just a Little Rosti at This (right).
From Essie's Fall Collection I picked up Velvet Voyeur (right) and Merino Cool (left). I think the Merino Cool is a nice color to transition into fall and actually painted my nails with it tonight. It is sort of a gray with a slight hint of lilac. I really like it. Lately for me Essie has been having some really great colors out every season.
Today is my big brothers birthday--he is turning 31! I can't believe we are this age. Growing up with him was awesome and he is one of my fave people. Love you bro!
Happy Birthday Corey!!
