Easter Weekend Shopping Haul! | Sephora, Taget & Wal-Mart!

Monday, April 21, 2014

Hey Dolls!
I hope you all had an amazing Easter Weekend! I certainly know that I did. My favorite part was being able to spend some much needed time with my family which included a wonderful shopping trip to a city near me, since I live in a small rural town I tend to try and save my money for when we travel to this city to do some shopping! Since this was going to be part of my Easter Present, I decided to splurge on some beauty products, as well as fashion items (which I'm not going to show you), but none the less I wanted to show you girls what I could because I got some super amazing items!

* not in any particular order *

Icing Matte Bronzer ($7.25)
Hard Candy Trio in 3rd Wheel ($8.98)
Smith's Rosebud Salve ($7.50)
NYX Round Lipsticks in Strawberry Milk (left) and Castle (right) ($5.99)
NYC Twistable Crayon in Metropolitan Mauve ($3.97)
Milani Brow Shaping Wax ($4.44)
L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($5.96)
Spa Resource Beauty Sponge ($4)

 Up & Up Eye Brush Set ($4.99)
Eco Tools Full Eyeshadow Brush ($3)
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ($64)
Icing Expert Fan Brush ($8.50)
Icing Expert Blush Brush ($8.50)

I tried to pick up a variety of products, I knew originally I wanted to purchase the Naked 2 Palette, so that was my first stop when I went shopping after that I knew I wanted to try some more higher end brushes so I went for those as well and all the other things I just couldn't say no to. These things were purchase at Sephora, Target and WalMart and some of these things I did get on discounts and sales, which I have not told you how much I paid, I told you retail price. If you want to know how much I paid feel free to ask.

If you want to see a review or swatches on any of these products please let me know in the comments below :)


  1. Yay! I love hauls! This one is really awesome. I like how you listed retail price instead of what you paid for them. That beauty sponge looks pretty awesome. I have one myself, but need more. I don't feel you can ever have enough :)


    1. I only have two beauty sponges, and I paid 8 dollars for my first one and 5 for this one and actually find this one much better to use. I have been doing cream contour and highlight lately and the sponge works perfectly instead of getting another brush dirty.
