Juicy Couture Haul

I've got my shipment two days ago and I was so excited for it. I've been looking for a juicy couture bag for a while but haven't found one that I've really liked. But I got my first juicy couture handbag. It's great for a every day purse and a school bag. I really liked the viva la puddle brown handbag but it's sold out every where even on ebay. What a shame but I really was eyeing that bag so since it was gone I decided to order this one. Juicy couture is a higher end brand and their items are pricy. But the quality is what counts. Another reason why I bought hand bag from them was because they seem to always manufacture the same style and it's a style that I like. I also love their fabric and accessories that comes with the handbag. If you ask me is it worth buying a handbag from juicy couture. Yes, it is because if you save up instead of going out buying cheaper quality purses months after months you can end up with a higher end handbag. I mean you could get maybe 3 or 4 purses instead of one but an expensive one will last you longer and you'll most likely wear it more often. While you'll end up wearing the cheaper one for a few weeks or a month or so and end up buying a new one. So why not save up and get you a nice looking purse. Don't get me wrong but cheaper handbag do come in handy at times and yes, you will find quality in some of them and it interest you but if you really want one that'll stay in style and the quality will last longer, I suggest saving up a few months or even 1 month of saving can get you a higher end handbag. Picture will be up soon....


28 neutral palette
I love this palette and this is my FAVORITE palette from CS. Every color in here is wearable. The colors are pigment as always. Great for everyday wear or bridal wear. I love this palette this much that this is the one palette and item I used so much from CS. At first, I didn't really pay any attention to this palette but after giving it a chance..WOW! did I mess up because I waited too long to try this palette. At first, I was really excited to get this palette but when it arrive I hardly touch it while (x-mas season when it arrive) my older sister was the one who was enjoying this palette more then I did. Love it and will buy again even if for every lady that I love and adore in my life.


I don't remember but I am pretty sure it doesn't come with these pan. You have to purchase it separately. It's smaller then a mac palette. At first I didn't like the size because I thought it was too small but now I think it's the perfect size for on the go. Yes, I would buy this again because of the size and how cheap it cost. But the down side is that your e/s pan won't stick to this palette. I've took the foam out and put a whole strip of magnetic on it and put the foam back on but still your e/s pan won't fit. Another down side is that the divider is actually foam not plastic like the MAC ones but I guess for the price it's pretty good. Another thing about this palette that I don't like is that it's not magnetic so it means your e/s pan won't stick to it. Even after you went out and bought a roll or sheet of magnet it won't stick. But yes, i would buy this item again!

88 original palette

This palette comes with shimmer and matte eyeshadow. When I bought it it was $19.95 but since it got so popular it went up $2 more dollars. Not bad for the quality and colors that you get. I like this one more than any of the other 88 palette because I don't like all my eyeshadow to be shimmer. The colors are similiar in the other palettes but some are different. This one is most popular because you get matte and shimmer e/s. Yes, I would buy this item for myself again and as a gift.

empty pans for e/s
These pans are a lot thinner than the mac one or the one that you get if you have ordered from makeuphaven before. There's pretty much nothing to say because e/s pan will be e/s pan. For the price that you pay, you get a lot more than if you would have order elsewhere. I've research and this is the cheapest place to get these empty pans.

10 blush palette

these blush are pigment for the price you pay. every color is wearable. These last a long time. I would give this palette a 5 out of 5 stars. Yes, I would buy this again.

contour palette

You get 3 highlight, 2 blush and 1 contour shade. Pretty pigment as any of their other palette. Great quality for the price you pay and amount you get. 5 out of 5 stars

I hope you ladies enjoy my review. I know some of them aren't the best but these are my personal thoughts and ideas of it. What you see is what you get. If I didn't enjoy something honestly, I would speak my mind but so far I've really enjoyed CS cosmetics. Prices can be found at CS online store and prices can vary. Thanks and enjoy! Oops! Review on hot pots are coming soon!
I did find cheaper alternative on ebay but some people say that those on ebay contain lead while CS said that theirs doesn't contain lead and are manufacture differently from those sold on ebay. So you might want to decide which one you want and the cost.


I've heard so many reviews about this particular blush and thought oh, wow it's going to be the damn best blush I ever own. Unfortunately, after buying it, it wasn't that great. I hardly touch this blush. I don't know what I was thinking when I was trying it on at Sephora. I think it was during the time I was going through a makeup phase other than that I don't think I would have bought it now. This blush is laying in my vanity drawer right now and hardly used up. The color doesn't match me. I think it's too peachy coral for me. It did however match my niece. So I'm thinking about taking this back and getting a different shade. I own this blush for 5 month now. The texture is great so I can't complain there and the amount that you get for your money is well worth and spent, especially the quality that you get out of this blush is good. But the down side is that the color is not that special. Like I said, it's been one of sephora's besting selling blush and thought it'll be the last blush that I own but nope, it was the opposite. I would give this a 4 out of 5 stars. I love the quality and the amount that you get for the money but I would choose a different shade. Some people might like this shade but for me, it doesn't suit me so I would say try it out on your cheek before buying. Don't swatch it on your hand like I did because it might go to waste. I didn't even open this product until after a month that I've got it because I ordered a whole bunch of cosmetics and I got a whole bunch from Christmas. One thing that I do have to say is that Nars blush are good blush and worth the money! Will buy again but in different shade.


Comes in 3 different sizes:

1 oz for $36
2 oz for $49
.5 oz for $16

After using this for 2 days straight I've realize that it made my foundation smoother, not only that but everything on face looked smoother like my blush, bronzer, contour, and most important my face and skin looks flawless! I know it seems unbelievable but if you don't have perfect skin or smooth skin trust me, this stuff is good. It does the job and your makeup looks amazing!

Right after you put this primer on you can feel a difference in your skin. Your skin is smoother, baby soft, and the texture of your face is undescribable. I know this sounds crazy but I've really think I found my face primer that'll make my skin look flawless and feels baby soft. Definitely a must have for me after trying the sample from my Ulta order. Ladies, I've many items before and believe me I was disappointed but this primer is a must have. If I have to rate it it would get a 4 1/2 out of 5. Why? Because the product it self is great and excellent but it's a little pricy for the amount that you get. Other than that this is a must have!

Major Haul

OMG! Yesterday(4-29-09), is my luckiest day of all. I did some major shopping. At first, I planned to come in and just pick up a necklace that I really wanted but end up looking around the store and found many goodies!

First, I got my flower necklace with pearl on it. Second, got me my swab and cotton holder. Third, I was just looking and end up buying 4 pairs of jeans out of 6 pairs. They're all skinny jean. Fourth, found me the Too Face world domintation all access backstage beauty collection for $12.99, retail price around $50 and up. Wow, what a bargain! Thinking about getting my sister one of this. I only saw 2 of them at my TJ Maxx and when it comes to cosmetics there, there's very little of each item. Ladies if you want it I suggest you get to a TJ Maxx and grab on, if there are any left. The colors are pretty and for the price and the quality it's as good as you can get. Review for this will be coming soon. Fifth, got me 2 pairs of hair extension. I saw these a few months ago but they didn't have my shade. They seem to have a lot more shade and more in, at the moment. I also got me a jacket from dollhouse. If you haven't notice I love dollhouse!

Next, I know this sounds lame but I went in to dollar tree to grab me an aluminum pan and found myself at the cosmetics aisle, it's been months since I've been here and in this aisle. Any who, I found a whole bunch of goodies of Loreal cosmetics. I found 4 different quad of eyeshadow from Loreal. I end up getting all 4 because it was a dollar a piece and I did own one loreal quad and their eyeshadow are pretty pigment. There was some eye pencil, lip gloss, and eye stuff but as you all know I'm a sucker for eyeshadow. I love eyeshadow and while others are addicted to blush, foundation, etc. , I'm addicted to eyeshadow. Don't know why but always have been ever since I was little and playing with makeup.

I don't know what else to blog about but photos of this haul will be up soon. I went to some other store and I got a lot of stuff, did some major haul and spent quite a lot but can't think of it now. So later guys....
