Declutter #2 Skincare & Haircare | Makeup Graveyard

New video is live!

I cleaned out so many products that I just don’t use or are expired that have been cluttering up my beauty space. I don’t really have a room, it’s just spread out everywhere. Seriously, I had to go through like 5 different spots this stuff was hiding and I am still sure I missed a stash somewhere!

Now that it is cleaned out I will finally condense it all and that is going to feel so good!

Dollar Tree Makeup Wipes Review | Rant

Dollar Tree Makeup Wipes Review/Rant

Ok, so you know how there’s that saying that you can’t believe everything you hear on the internet? Well, someone in a Dollar Tree video said the Dollar Tree Exfoliating face wipes were good….

Let’s just say I disagree. These are made from plastic. These feel like a cross between a scouring pad, and an actual pad.

Makeup Graveyard Day 5- Eyeshadows

Makeup Graveyard Day 5- Eyeshadows

Oh the hives. I had to leave class Thursday because I could feel them popping up all over my body. I went home and took a Benedryl and a Claritin, and thought I could just sleep it off, but I couldn’t. I called my Doctor to tell her what was going on and she wanted me to go do more blood work (food allergy tests as well as things like checking my liver and my thyroids). I had to go get my blood drawn and it took forever, but the nurse was SO nice and was so gentle.

I have a Doctors appointment on Wednesday to talk about the test results and to have my first allergy immunotherapy shot. She is also calling in two other doctors from another location to come consult on my rash/hives/etc.

Wee. Any of you suffering from hives too? They suck.

Anyways- Makeup Graveyard Day 5- Eyeshadows

Eyeshadow I got rid of:

  • BH Cosmetics sampler
  • Elf Single Shadows in Dusk, Driftwood, and Pink Ice
  • Physician’s Formula Dollar Tree Shimmer Strips
  • Elf Smudge pot in Ain’t That Sweet
  • Avon Cream Eyeshadow Trios (2)
  • Elf Waterproof Eye Crayon
  • Elf Mineral Eye Primer
  • Elf Beauty Book- Geometiric
  • Wet N Wild Single Sellout

I’ve also have a Dollar Tree Haul going live today! Oh my goodness, they have SUCH good stuff for summer!

Makeup Graveyard Day 3- Primers

Makeup Graveyard Day 3 Primers

I am SO glad I pre-filmed a bunch of videos! Not only do I have this class, but I ate/wore/did something that set off my hives so bad! I am COVERED. Ugh.

In this Makeup Graveyard, I sorted through primers, but since filming this I discovered the elf SPF 20 Primer is nowhere are good as the original primer, so I think I’m going to pass that along. I also tried out the undereye primer again, and I really don’t like it. My concealer only lasted 1/2 the amount of time it usually does.

Collective Haul! April 2015 |Dollar Tree, Target & more!

Collective Haul April 2015 Dollar Tree, Target, Walgreens, and Rite Aid!

This week I wound up returning a bunch of stuff I didn’t like, and getting new things to try! Also, the Dollar Tree happened again because I needed wrapping paper…. and who can only buy what you NEED there?! It’s like going into Sephora, you always leave with more!

I finally found a foundation that matches me right now, in between my awkward I-haven’t-seen-the-sun-in-months stage and the equally awkward I-sunburnt-my-forehead-because-I-forgot-sunscreen-was-a-thing stage. Gotta love Spring! And of course, now it’s raining again. Go figure.

I am so unbelievably happy I found the new Silver Lake collection from Wet N Wild that had more than just the California Roll palette left! They had the blues, the pinks, and the purples left. I was really hoping to grab the nudes too, but it was the only one that was sold out.

I thought since I didn’t swatch them on camera, I’d take some photos for you here!
