NYC loose powder
Wet N Wild blush in pearlescent pink

Mother's Day Gifts & others

I know I'm late on this..

My Hubby & kids got me two purses. Both are by the brand Nine West & were purchased at Macy's.
Let me tell y'all the deal we got on these. Each were 25% off & then the cashier gave us an extra 25% off the total.
This one was originally $89
 This one was originally $79
Well I ended up getting both for $91!! Talk about a deal.
 It's almost like I got a free purse!

 This one was featured in the "What's in my purse" tag. 
It came from Burlington. It's by U.S Polo Assn. 
Style: Encore "Brown/Multi"
Also available in black & white
Original Price: $59 
Paid $24.99

The day I bought my nine west purses I was also looking for a new wallet, but couldn't find anything for a reasonable price. I ended up finding this Nine West wallet at Burlington.
Original price: $40
Paid: $13.99

Both pairs are from T.J. Maxx & each were only $12.99
The pair on the left is Kenneth Cole Reaction (My mom bought me these) 
The pair on the right is Steve Madden

I love getting good deals. 
Search around before paying full price for anything.
You can get more for your money =)

I hauled more lip butters

Hi my name is Tiffany & I'm addicted to Lip Butters.
BUT I got a good deal on these four!

I had two coupons from CVS for $3 off of $10 in beauty products 
plus I had a coupon for 25% (got other stuff too) off any purchase. 
& on top of that Revlon is BOGO 50% off right now.  
These lips butters were marked at $7.39 & I ended up getting two for $9.

Sugar Frosting is more of a nude color, but lighter than creme brulee.
Sweet Tart is the brightest one. This one is more like a lipstick than a tinted lip balm.
Strawberry Shortcake is a medium pink, which I really like.
Cupcake reminds me of gumdrop but has more pink to it.

The CVS I went to today is always fully stocked (It's like drugstore makeup heaven) so I was sure I was gonna find all the ones I wanted, but I was excited I forgot to pick up Pink Truffle. =(

Which one of these would you like to see in a FOTD?

Creme Brulee VS Gumdrop *REQUESTED*

Creme Brulee looks really brown in the swatch & tube but on my lips turns into this pretty glossy nude color.
Gumdrop looks purple in the tube & more pinkish in the swatch. When applied on my lips it looks more like the swatch. 
I think that both are equally pigmented & I would repurchase both.
Both look great with dramatic eyes.

 CVS has Revlon products BOGO 50% off. 
Sale ends on the 26th.

Check out this post for swatches of cotton candy & peach parfait.

NYC smooth skin loose face powder

Okay last post of the night =)

I got it in the shade "Translucent". I needed something to set my foundation & I'm glad I decide to pick this one up. For a product that costs under 5 bucks it works AMAZING! 
Probably the best powder I've tried. It left my face looking evenly & healthy. It absorbs oil pretty good.
 I used my ELF powder brush to apply. 

The packaging is cute BUT the lid doesn't secure tight enough for travel. 
So I won't be able to carry this in my purse for touch ups.

It comes with a sponge but I already threw it away.

NYC color wheel mosaic face powder

This is the Color wheel Mosaic face powder in the shade Translucent Highlighter Glow

Great pigmentation! 
This product was around $3
Works great at contouring my face, even tho it's light my skin is pretty fair.
I used this on my cheeks, nose, & jawline to give my face a little more structure. 

It claims to:
Brighten skin
Minimizes flaws and helps to reduce shine.
oil absorbing
& it's fragrance free

Overall it did what it claimed to do.
There's more colors available so give it a try.

Wet N Wild bronzer- Reserve your Cabana

Obviously this is too light to be a bronzer but it makes a great highlighter.
I used this on the apple of my cheeks & our my eyebrows. 
This gives my face a nice natural glow.
It contains SPF 15.
It isn't shimmery so there was no fallout. 
Mostly importantly this product didn't cause my face to break out.
I forgot the price, but I know it's very cheap.

Wet N wild also has darker shades in "Bikini Contest" which is the darkest shade & "Ticket to Brazil" which is the medium shade. Both are pretty colors. I plan on picking one up soon. Overall yes I would suggest trying this.

New Revlon lippies

Without a doubt Revlon has to be my favorite company for lip products.
All of the products below are amazing!
