It’s been a while since I’ve been to a Walmart (we don’t have any conveniently near us) but I ran out of a couple of items so I took advantage and found one to go to.
I repurchased the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer. Theywere out of Sand which is what I’ve been using so I grabbed one shade lighter to try out. I felt like sand was a little too dark anyway so I think this one will be good.
I was also repurchased the WetNWild Photofocus loose powder in Banana. This is hands down my favorite powder and yesterday I fianlly ran out, I even removed the plastic stopped to use up every last dust spec lol. I contemplated holding off on replacing this one since I have a few others to use up but I couldn’t resist it.
The WetNWild blush is an existing shade, Mellow Wine, that was repackaged in this Valentine’s Day packaging.
I grabbed the elf mascara for about $2 to give it a try and the highlighter was $5 I believe. I like the highlighter, it gives a nice golden glow without any glitter. The mascara is ok, I’ll have to keep testing it because it’s still too new and too wet to really decide how I feel about it.
I couldn’t resist the cute little Caboodles tote. I’m always looking for a convenient way to carry my motd through the house as I look for a comfortable place to apply it lol. It comes with several compartments for brushes and makeup products. It’s actually a nail kit tote but it works for this too. The center compartment comes out for easy cleaning.
The last (actually it was the very first lol) item I picked up was a cute fluffy sloth for my niece.
I told myself I didn’t need or want this palette but here we are.
I personally love most of Morphe’s palettes and this one is no exception. Even though it is much cooler toned than I’m used to, I still find this easy to use and combine colors with.
Full list of products used:

How do you feel about Morphe palettes? Do you have this one?
Primer: Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas primer and Marc Jacobs Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut primer Face: Covergirl Full Spectrum Matte Ambition All Day Foundation. I think I have the lightest shade in this collection, definitely made for more melanin rich peeps. Measurable Difference Concealer Collection. We received this in a Boxycharm box three years ago and I’ve kept this since then, still plastic wrapped. I love how well this product performs! I used it for contouring, bronzing and concealer Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Powder for under the eyes and NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop powder for all over ABH Contour Kit powder Smashbox Bronze Lights Warm Matte Colourpop Interstellar pressed blush Marc Jacob’s Gilty O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer NYX glitter primer for the lid area where I applied the shimmer shade Shadows: Tempting/ Flame Game/ Red Alert/ Power Play/ Trance @nyxcosmetics Fill and Fluff in Espresso Tarte Big Ego Mascara Kylie Cosmetics Madeline
The NYX glitter primer made a big difference in how the shimmer shade applied and how long it stayed on!
Colourpop released a whole new collection last week and I instantly knew I’d have to get a few of the items (I’ve completely abandoned my no spend, oops).
Being a desert girl with a succulent collection almost as abundant as my makeup this packaging sucked me in instantly!
As with most Colourpop launches, items sold out almost as soon as they were listed. Fortunately for me I was grabbing food and was able to park right at 10 to place my order.
I picked up the palette, three of the new creme shadows, all three blushes and for the heck of it one of the lip oils. I’m not one for a glossy lip but curiosity got the best of me.
I’ve seen a few people talk about how the colors of the palette don’t match the theme but I personally think it’s dead on. The desert isn’t vibrant or bright.
I forgot to use the cream shadows but I here I used as many of the products from the collection as possible
Shadows used: Top lid- Top Down/Morningside/No Bounds/Alcove /Spirited. Bottom Lid – Come Together/ Sea Shells. Inner Corner – Salton Blush On The Horizon Hot Shot lip oil
Alcove is a nice shimmer shade and Spirited and Salton are super shock formulas.
The blush has glitter specks in the pan but it applies with a nice sheer glow that doesn’t emphasize texture.
The lip oil! I am so happy I picked this up! It feels so soft and hydrating. It’s not sticky at all and doesn’t have that gooey thick feel some oils can have. It has a very light scent that goes away once applied and doesn’t have a taste (I accidentally licked my lips, haha).
Overall I really enjoy the products and color story released.
