I got these Maybelline Expert Eyes makeup remover wipes from five below also, they work great on makeup which isnt waterproof (they say for washable makeup only) and work to take off my concealer too. They came with 50 wipes which is really nice for 2.99, most only come with 30! The only downfall is they are a little bit too soapy.
EYESHADOW :)

Brit got this this past week for $2.50 although it says viva la glam it is not mac, it is by the brand models prefer and these particular colors are called backstage pass. Models prefer has good quality makeup, but sells for pretty expensive on QVC and HSN. If you look on ebay though, they have a lot of models prefer makeup for very cheap! We got this particular one, along with some other things at a place called Rice's Market . If you live in Pennsylvania, you must check this place out! Anyway, the eyeshadow is really really nice! Long lasting and does smudge! Here are some swatches & packaging stuff, love the colors!

I'm just going to jump right into this! I love shopping at places like sephora and ulta, but when they arent having sales most things can be just too expensive, so I shop a lot at drug stores, rite-aid, wal-mart, target, etc. I also LOVE five below, dollar general, and other discount stores. Here are some things I have gotten in the past couple of weeks.

This is my favorite eyeliner ever, but I can NEVER find it in stores anymore, and it was like 8$. A few days ago I found this eyeliner, and almay mascara (which I had never used before) for 3.99$. They came in a pack together at five below, and the mascara isn't that bad! The brush is not plastic and is a large brush so I like it.

This lip shimmer is made by wet and wild, its called natural wear in color 100. I like it as a chapstick, nothing more though. & it smells very minty. It cost $1.99

This is wet and wild lip gloss in 563B, it was $.99, the color is very shear&nude, smells like vanilla. don't really care for wet and wild so these two aren't my favorite.

This loreal lip color crayon is great. I got it at five below for $1.99. The color is called tender kisses. It has no smell to it, and doesnt last too long, but the color is great. It's a pink, but not too pink, almost just like the color on the crayon. The only downfall is you have to sharpen it.


We also went to a market called Rice's and an Ulta store which is moving, so they were having a huge sale, i'll post them later, sorry I didnt so any swatches, the colors are too shear & light.
