Drugstore Discovery: [More] Wet N Wild Megalast Nailpolishes!

I just did a recent purchase at Walgreens thinking I could catch the buy 2 get 1 free deal, but apparently I was too late! Boo. But it’s okay because for $1.99 a bottle, I couldn’t complain! I was really happy with the colors I bought not too long ago, that you have maybe seen in my previous post. So after quite a long day of midterms and never-ending classes, I knew I wanted to treat myself to some new goodies. No harm in that, right?

So I got these four bad boys! There are 16 colors total, and because I have six already, I knew I should just get colors that stood out to me the most, so here you go for your viewing pleasure!

(From L to R: Club Havana, Haze of Love, Tropicalia, Bite the Bullet)

These colors are gorgeous, and I absolutely cannot get enough of these! I have a load of untried nail polishes, but these–I put on my “priority” nail polish list to try next. It’s an obsession, quite frankly.

Retail Indulgence: Collective Haul from February! (Fashion and Beauty)

We hope you all had a great leap day/hump day! For the past month of February we both made trips to Forever 21, H&M, our local drugstores, and other fun places and got a lot of great items at an affordable price!

Because our haul was actually really long, we divided the haul into two separate videos so if you’re interested in one thing over the other you can watch either or, or if you’re feeling daring you can watch both! As you all know, we love to shop so this was definitely a lot of fun to film for you guys, we hope you enjoy!

Outfit Indulgence: (OOTD) Colorblocked

Do you ever have those days where you’re all dressed up but have no where to go? Yeah, that happens to be one of those days for me. Karla and I unfortunately aren’t doing a Wanderlust Wednesday because our plans got cancelled. I definitely love this outfit though, so I thought I’d share it with you guys.

It’s a beautiful day out today where I live–the sun is shining and the weather is perfect, not too hot/not too cold. I decided to do my try at color blocking and I really loved how my outfit turned out. Here is a picture of a few details from my outfit.

Drugstore Discovery: Wet N Wild Megalast Lip Color

Another Drugstore Discovery of the day was at the same place, Walgreens. I found new lip color additions to the Megalast line! I’ve seen these around the web as well, and knew immediately I need to snatch them up. I only own two colors from the WNW Megalast line before the two I bought today and I was very pleased with the color payoff and the quality, so I knew I would not regret this purchase.

I got the shades Cherry Picking (L) and Don’t Blink Pink (R). From the tube the shades radiate the most gorgeous hues, and when swatched it’s true to the color.

Cherry Picking reminds me a lot of the Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart, just more opaque which I like a lot better. Don’t Blink Pink is a gorgeous bubble gum opaque bright pink which I have a lot of in my collection, but can’t get enough of! These shades are definitely loud, but that’s never a bad thing.

These run for about 1.99-2.50 a piece (depending on which drugstore you go to) which is a lot more affordable than the higher end lippes I have. I find the quality of these lipsticks to even match my MAC lipsticks as well. Because these are matte shades, they last a lot longer on your lips but do not leave them drying which is always a plus! Overall, I love these! I am so excited they put new shades out, because there are even more options for us lip junkies.

Check these babies out if you’re looking for opaque lipsticks with a matte finish that do not leave your lips drying, and are really affordable! Also, take note of any sales in your local ad for your drugstores because sometimes they sell wet n wild for 50% off–then you can get them for even cheaper! Let me know if you have tried any of these or want to–I’d love to hear your feedback!

Urban Decay Sale is Live on Hautelook!

Everyone, there is this great deal on primer potions, shadow pencils, and an awesome palette from Urban Decay. I find the quality of their products to be really great, comparable to MAC and other higher end name brand cosmetics. One of my favorites are the primer potions because they leave your eye makeup looking flawless and doesn’t make them crease or look muddy by the end of the day. I was extremely excited to see the shadow pencils on sale because I wanted them for Christmas, and only for $12?! Such a steal! So seriously guys, check this out before it goes away and snatch up some UD goodies before it’s gone.

You can check out the sale before they sell out/go away at the following link:
