Beauty Buys + A Gift

Every once in a while a girl’s got to treat herself to a few nice little things…or one big thing.  And since the “one big thing” on my list costs more than what I’m willing (or able at this time) to pay, I decided to treat myself to some cute little items that I could easily tick off my list without blowing the budget and setting off the account police (my wonderful hubby).  Here are some of my most recent beauty buys and a cool gift from my mommy:
A Valentine’s Day gift to myself:

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Shadows (LOVE these as a base)

A beauty blender and the Core Collection & Starter Kit from Real Techniques.  I’ve been hearing so many good things about the brushes I decided to go on and get them.  The collections along with the large power brush, only cost $40.00 at Ulta. A steal for the quality, really.  I’ll give a full review once I get to try them out more than a few times.

Then just when I thought I was completely missing out on the Rihanna Hearts Mac collection, my mom tells me that she bought it for me when it came out because she thought I’d like them.  Uh, heck yeeeeaah!  But then get this:  She JUST gave them to me last week because she kept forgetting about them every time we saw each other. LOL! Do you know how many times we’ve seen each other since this set came out? More than I can count.  Anyway, all that matters is that I have them now and I am in love with the packaging.  
hot. funky. fly!
The best part is, Spring 2014 is all about gilded lids so this will be getting plenty of use.
And did I mention I’m loving this packaging–I can’t even stop talking about it. lol!
