Dollar Tree Haul




I love these Santa Clause socks and the Snuggledoo ones. Sally Hansen nail stickers come 2 in a pack so you get 2 for $1.

New Julep Sweep The Photogenic Eyeshadow Palette Review

New Julep Sweep The Photogenic Eyeshadow Palette Review

-Brush: made in China, 100% Synthetic Filaments

  Pose - brownish grey, shimmer

Filter, Sepia, Icon, Selfie

Debut- earthy green with slight shimmer
 Star- bluish grey with slight shimmer
 Fame- charcoal black, matte








   

I have decided to try this palette out since it looked so much like Urban Decay's Naked. The eyeshadows are pigmented but also chalky. There is a mix of matte, and shimmery finish eyeshadows. The brush quality is very good. 

I have tried some of the colors on my lids and they are pretty bendable. I did however need an eyeshadow primer to prevent them from creasing. 

In my opinion its a great palette but not for the price. I would not pay $54 for it! I'm glad that I had a 30% off coupon code. Even though this palette resembles Urban Decay Naked a lot and it's full price is the same I don't think that the eyeshadow quality is as good. 

What's great about Julep is that all of their products are Paraben and Sulfate free. Also, this palette has "Julep's lid-smoothing NS anti-aging Power Cell Complex".

Mary Kay Starter Kit

Mary Kay Starter Kit

I have decided to become a Mary Kay beauty consultant. The first step was to order my my starter kit which is $100 plus shipping. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of products that the kit contained. 



 I have selected to receive their liquid foundation instead of the mineral powder one. I am currently using one of them in color Ivory 4 and I like the coverage that it provides. 


The bag is of a very good quality and is very spacious. It contains a neat organizer insert  and many pockets. It's great for traveling and to keep everything organized.


I have signed up for my personal website where my clients can make purchases directly from me. It costs $30 per year. I am trying to start with offering free shipping on order of $25 or more. Hopefully, it will help to attract more customers. The website address is www.marykay.com/ytahmazov
