Smasbox Blush: Radiance

So...I needed a new blush and decided to go to Ulta to find one (because I was too lazy to cross the street and go to MAC, lol).  Any who, I browsed the blushes and saw this!
Is this what love feels like?  I love the color, the texture and guess what?  I believe this will look good on anyone's skin tone.  It's the perfect pink.  And yes, I wore this to work today :) Too much? Nah...

So, I'm not going to put a direct link to it because all the major makeup stores (including smashbox online) sells it.  I bought this for 24 bucks.

My Weekend: A Review

On Saturday, I volunteered at the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra (via my professor) and it was a pretty cool event. First, this is probably the first time I’ve been around REAL wealthy and cultured individuals. After I completed my role (to disseminate surveys), they invited me to stay and I did. How often does a person get to see this…FOR FREE? Made me start thinking about how “cultured” or well-rounded I am. Obviously, not very much. I spend most of my time between work and school but I will definitely try more. Especially, if it’s for free. Plus, maybe I will bump heads with people who can assist me in getting a REAL job :)

Next, I finally added some sass to my kitchen. I bought both items (flowers and chalk board) from T. J. Maxx. The flowers were $16 and the chalk board was $49.99. I plan on writing recipes and curse words on that board, lol.

Later that day I went to MAC. I needed some more primer but ended up purchasing the primer, a blend brush, and lip gloss. I feel like an adult now because I am no longer blending with my finger! And, it’s a big difference! I barely need any powder. The brush cost $30 but guess what, how often do you buy a brush? I think it’s worth the price. I’m finding that all of MAC’s tools are actually very helpful. I also purchased a lip gloss ($15). I needed an everyday pink. And yes, I did polish my nails to match my gloss. Oh, my nails? I forget the name of the color but I purchased it from Forever 21 for a dollar.

I hope you guys have an awesome week.

Semi-Haul: Phone Cases

So...I Just got an iPhone 5 last week and as usual...I wanted an awesome phone case.  It's typically hard to find phone cases when the style of the phone is new but, I think I did good.  Here's what I have:

Black Rabito (which I bought online from Nordstrom for $32) and a brown Michael Kors Logo Case (which I bought from Dillards for $34).

It may be considered as a splurge but good phone cases usually run between 28 and 40 bucks (yes, this is what I keep telling myself so I can live with my purchases, lol).  Another logic: It's cheaper than a designer purse :)

And, ignore my boyfriend and I in this pic, lol. Also, that bunny tail allows the phone to be propped up.  Cute, isn't it?  Other than using it for sitting up, I doubt I walk around with a piece of fur attached to my phone.

MY Acrylic Chairs!

So, I got this idea from Pinterest. I just moved into another apartment and wanted it to be very chic. I found the table at Home Goods ($100) and bought the chairs from Amazon ($199).  Now I have to find an awesome painting to go with it :(

Infiniti Pro Conair: 3 in 1 Styler

Had to buy a new blow dryer (with a comb attachment) and I picked this one because it was the only one at Ulta, lol.  I paid $29.99 but it's a whooping $27.99 now, lol.  Any who, I love this...WHY? Because it's smaller and powerful (yes, lights flickered every time I turned it on).  Also, it took less strokes to get it blown out. For more info, read here! To purchase from Ulta, click here!

PG REVIEW: Benefit's "They're Real" Mascara

So...while at Ulta this weekend I purchased Benefit's "They're Real" mascara.  The salesperson told me it's their top selling product.  I'm typically a MAC's Falsies kind of girl but since I didn't feel like going I thought...what the hell?  Below, is the before and after.

Honestly speaking, it's not like I don't have lashes to work with but there is a clear difference.  I'm not sure if it's because I use eye lash primer  or if it's the work of the mascara on its own.  Now the question you want to it worth $23 bucks?  Probably not.  I think you can do well with any mascara (as long as you use primer).  Tart's primer has worked well with any mascara I've used (although I don't like Tart's mascara).  But...looks like I have to get my money worth since I already brought this crap...If you are interested, shop Benefit's mascara here!

Valentine's Day date night dresses

Until I read this, I never thought about dressing up for Valentine's Day.  I just planned on leaving work (in my work clothes) and going straight to dinner and a movie *shrugs shoulders* lol.  Click here!

PG's Nails

This week, I thought I should go bright (especially since it will be raining most of the week). Also, I think it will be a color that blends well with Valentine's Day.

Sally Hansen's Salon Effects French Mani

Uh comes the bitching...  Can someone explain to me why their nail strips costs more than their whole nail stickers?  It's literally an inch (or less) but it costs $12.99.  Their whole nail stickers are $9.99. 

So...Will I try these? NO!  Their nail stickers usually unpeel from the top so that would be a waste of money and time...

But (yes, there's a but), if you have a special event and don't plan on keeping these past a couple of days, go for it!  It's cheaper than a manicure... Read more here (including reviews).
